Hair care is something I’m really hot on at the moment. If you read my 5 Life Updates post, you will know that I wanted to go grey but unfortunately my colour didn’t lift enough for a toner to be able to stick to my hair. I had it bleached four times in two months and that really damaged my locks. Fortunately, I took after my mum with hair, so it’s pretty strong and has held itself pretty well considering all its been through. However, I can’t bare the thought of having unhealthy, dry hair, so I had to get myself quality haircare to ensure I’m giving my hair the best treatment possible.
I used the Pureology Hydrate range for quite some time and absolutely loved it, but I wanted to try something from Aveda since I had heard great things about the brand. I knew I definitely wanted to try a few bits from their Damage Remedy range, because well, seemed fitting to my current situation, but for shampoo I didn’t want to go for something that could potentially be too hydrating. I recently bought a salon branded shampoo that was aimed at dry hair and every time I used it I felt like I had to wash my hair again as it left some sort of residue. So to avoid that, I went with the Shampure shampoo.
The shampoo is lovely, it has a gel-like consistency and foams up really easily which I love. I can’t stand it when shampoos take forever and a day to lather up. It is also really easy to rinse out, so I never feel like I still have some left on my hair. After I’ve washed my hair I go in with the Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment. It says to leave it on for 2-3 minutes, however when I have time I will usually leave this on for much longer. It’s perfect for anyone with dry, or chemically treated hair. It’s like a drink for my tresses and I always look forward to using this. After I leave the shower I’ll usually keep my hair in a towel for at least half an hour if I can. Because my hair is a bit dry now, I find it quite hard to brush thorough it when it’s wet, so I take a 20p-size amount of the Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair and run that through the lengths of my hair. It acts as a detangler, helps to fill in damaged cuticles for a smoother look and also protects the hair against heat damage. The whole Aveda range smells heavenly, it’s like a mix of being in a spa and being in a field of flowers. There are also no chemical nasties in their products which is truly amazing. And yes, I’m a huge fan of the brand if you couldn’t tell...
