Creating Waves

Having just come out of 'that awkward length' hair phase which inevitably happens after a 'just one more inch is fiiine' haircut, I can finally relax the styling (straightening, curling operation) and with that comes a more natural wavey-ness that I can get on board with. That said, I'm still not one of those who can roll out of bed looking like they've just stepped out of a salon, and I unfortunately rely on the top-knot more than I care to admit (let's pretend it's still fashionable). So, a helping hand or two in the haircare realm shouldn't be passed up if it helps creating the 'un-done' effect.

1. MASK 
Numero uno, dry ends do not equate to the locks you'll find on the shores of Bondi beach; hydration is easier said than done in UK temperatures (albiet this is occasional), let alone further afield. Bumble and Bumble's new Balm-To-Oil Pre-Shampoo Masque* brings a new realm to replenishing moisture. Velvety in texture, the balm liquefies into your palm and you apply pre-shampooing once a week. It is the Sustainable Palm Oil Blend that creates the balm-to-oil consistency; a mix of oils sourced responsibly from Honduras and Brazil. It leaves hair noticeably glossier, and more separated.

2. SHAMPOO
Another oil-enriched formulation, the Bouclรจme Hydrating Hair Cleanser*, is the next step in achieving naturally toussled waves. More than just a shampoo, this works to both cleanse the scalp and hair itself to improve overall hair health, nourishing from the root upwards and protecting from environmental damage (yep, hair is affected by pollution, too..). It's also got vitamin C, E, amino acids and Omega 7 which repair (sun) damaged hair. There's a lot of goodness in this bottle. Oh, and it smells very dreamy; sort of a mix between holidays and sweets..

3. CONDITIONER
Any blonde, either natural or honourary, knows that maintaining a colour that doesn't resemble brass is bordering on a full-time job. Now I'm getting my hair coloured quite regularly, I opt for colour-protecting conditioners and aim to use them at least once a week. Rahua's new Colour Full duo* uses a plant-derived colour complex to enhance colour (and source their ingredients from the Amazonian rainforest, no less) and give you a long-lasting vibrancy.

4. OILS
To lock in moisture, use Liz Earle's Botanical Shine Nourishing Hair Oil* mostly towards the ends and massage into palms before applying. Containing active ingredients like Kalahari melon seed oil and coconut oil, this is a finisher step in creating that nourished, effortless texture. Also, applying on damp hair speeds up blow-drying time, which to me is an almighty tick (impatient by nature). It's also great at giving life to dry ends and you need the smallest amount to do so.
