Summer Hair Care

If you’re like me, love the beach and sea, lucky to live along the coast, have fine hair and visit the beach almost every day during the summer, your hair might not love the salt water as much as you. Over the course of summer, salt water, sweat, sunscreen, humidity can damage my hair. When it’s fine hair, damage is emphasised 3 fold.

This summer, I think I may have the damage under control. Previous years I left coconut oil in overnight after being in the sea. My hair didn’t respond well. I’ve found after rinsing salt water out in the shower, it needs some sort of moisture locked back in. I’m sure my hairdresser will have their say next time I go in, however I’m finding the following’s working out okay keeping my hair healthy this summer: 

The Right Shampoo and Conditioner

More so the right conditioner. For a few years I’ve been using hairdresser recommended conditioner. While it’s natural, cruelty free, this year I decided to look for another. One reason price, the other it contained silicones which aren’t kind with Continue reading “Summer Hair Care”

Why I Switched Brushing For Combing And Hair Up Date

A few months ago I gave up my beloved Tangle Teezer for a simple wooden comb. I switched hairdressers and before they even started cutting my hair they recommended hair and scalp rebuilding treatment. I didn’t even get my hair cut on my first visit. 

My hair’s fine and just because I don’t dye it or use a hair dryer doesn’t mean I get away scot free on damage. Continue reading “Why I Switched Brushing For Combing And Hair Up Date”

Infrared Hair Treatment

I’m normally in and out the hairdressers in under 30 minutes. A trim, blow dry naturally and go. Last week I was in there for 2 hours!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The lady in PAS, Pelo Arte Sano in C/Duc 14, an all organic hairdressers after asking what I wanted done was okay, but first we need to address your scalp. I knew parts of my parting were red, but put down to the sun those parts have been red for years. If you’re my Mum you’ll say Continue reading “Infrared Hair Treatment”

First Impressions: Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse. 

A few weeks ago watching Chriselle Lim’s YouTube Winter Favourites video, I was curious try an apple cider vinegar (ACV) hair rinse she recommend by dpHUE. She used it on the days she didn’t use normally shampoo and helped her hair be more manageable. My hair’s fine, oily, somewhere in-between straight and slight wave, stubborn holding styles apart from straight at the hairdressers.brownies-4

I’m pretty low maintenance when it comes to my hair. I can count on one hand how many times I used my hairdryer in the past year. Continue reading “First Impressions: Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse. “

Hair Update and 2nd Chance Konjac Sponge

I’d thought I’d share a quick update on my hairdressers advice for fine hair and sports.

When I got my hair trimmed 3 months ago, the wind had stripped more or less all moisture from my hair cycling leaving it looking raggedy. This past winter’s been exceptionally windy and though I wear a baseball cap cycling to avoid looking like I’ve been dragged through a bush backwards, she recommended cycling with it in a plait/braid. Running, this didn’t work for me, so running it’s up in a bun.IMG_8025 (1)

When I saw her a few weeks ago Continue reading “Hair Update and 2nd Chance Konjac Sponge”
