After sharing my skincare and makeup empties, I thought today should be all about the hair products I’ve used up. I’m trying to venture out into new hair products this month which I have a post all about up in a couple of weeks but these products are pretty standard items for me.
I’m not one to use up a lot of styling products, but give me all the conditioner and dry shampoo! I definitely get through those the quickest.
I’ve been using the L’Oreal Elvive Fibrology Conditioner (and shampoo, but I haven’t yet finished that up – why does conditioner run out so much faster than shampoo?) on and off for around 2 years now and I think I’ve been through three sets of the shampoo and conditioner now. I have such fine hair and I was hoping this would work for me but it’s nothing special, however it doesn’t make my hair greasy after one day which is more what I’m after in a shampoo and conditioner. I have repurchased this again in a whopping 750ml bottle as it was only £3.25 in Sainsbury’s, but I’m not necessarily going to be rushing out to buy it again as I’m always willing to try new hair products.
Another conditioner that I’ve used up, and the matching shampoo are the Lee Stafford Hair Growth products which I have loved for around 2 and a half years. I ruined my hair as I discussed in my Hair Essentials Post, and this was a bit of a saviour to me. These are a lot pricier than the L’Oreal shampoo and conditioner but they do work, and you can usually get a deal on Lee Stafford Products in Boots (usually something like 3 products for £12 or £15) so they’re worth a purchase then. My hair always feels so great when I use the Lee Stafford Hair Growth range and when my hair is a little lackluster I always reach back to it. I still use the treatment mask from this range regularly which does amazing things too.
The final conditioner I’ve used is a sample of the Moo Goo Cream Conditioner which must have been in a goodie bag from an event (but I couldn’t tell you which one, maybe #LeedsXmasMeet). I threw this in my toiletry bag when I stayed in London for a couple of days last month as hotels sometimes don’t provide conditioner and it served a purpose. I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing it as it was only average and it’s almost £12 per bottle which is a little more than I want to spend at this time, especially as it isn’t a product that I can impulse buy in a local store.
The other products that I go through insanely quickly are dry shampoos because my hair gets greasy every day. If I sleep on my hair it’ll look greasy, but I don’t like to
I’ve talked about both the Colab Dry Shampoo and the Superdrug Dry Shampoo before, but in different scents. The Colab Dry Shampoo was half price for a mini one in Superdrug a while back so I bought the scent Monaco which has a wonderfully light fragrance. Colab is my current favourite dry shampoo but as stated in the previous post, it’s still lacking something. The next dry shampoo I have to try after using up the Batiste one I’ve got in my stash is one from Toni & Guy and I’m hoping that this will be what I’m after. The other dry shampoo was a different scent of the Superdrug own bran and it was okay as previously stated but I won’t be repurchasing it.
I find hair products are a necessity rather than something fun to use so I don’t like spending lots of money on them. I am looking forward to trying out some new products but I do always have products that I go back and it’s definitely some of these. Have you tried any of these products? If so, let me know what you’ve thought!
