ღ❤Updated Hair Care Post❤ღ

Hi Beauties!
I have been highly requested to do an updated hair care post via twitter and my blog, so I thought it would be a good time to do this post and hopefully it will be helpful to you. I also wanted to say a huge thank you to the people who posted such lovely comments on my Enrapture Curls Post, as well as the many lovely tweets I have had about my hair. I really appreciate you all being so lovely, so I just wanted to take the time thank you all before I get on with the post :D - I was literally born with a full head of hair and by the time I was around three I had long hair. I know I'm lucky to have long thick hair, so I hope that my hair care routine will be able to help you out a little. My hair is very long and thick, but it does get quite greasy at the roots and quite dry at the ends, so sometimes it is quite hard to look after. Recently, I have been using some new products and feel that my hair is in pretty good condition at the moment :D

I also wanted to take the time to thank the lovely Felicity from "Pursuit Of Felicity" for helping me to tidy up my layout a bit. I felt like my sidebar was a bit cluttered and I'm so happy with the results and changes she has made. I would really recommend her services, as she is so lovely and always very helpful. I would love to know what you think about my updated layout and I hope you all really like it :D - So, now I will get on with my hair care routine. 
Shampoo and Conditioner - Bargain Alert !
Previously, I have used shampoo's and conditioners from Kerastase, L'Oreal, Aussie and Pantene and have never really been 100% happy. However, I have recently been using Timotei Pure Shampoo and Conditioner which is currently on sale for an amazing £1 each! from supermarkets (I found mine in ASDA) The shampoo and conditioner are free from, paraben's, silicone's and colorants. The shampoo and conditioner are great for normal/greasy hair and are infused with organic Green Tea which makes the hair feel extremely clean after use. The conditioner also leaves my hair feeling amazing and it also has more of a lemon smell which makes it really refreshing to use. I love my current shampoo & conditioner as I can combat greasy hair and dry ends all in one and for an amazing £2!
Treatments
Recently, I have been using some products from the John Freida full repair range* and I have also really been liking them. I have found that using them around twice a week has really helped to condition my hair and especially the mid-low lengths. I will be doing separate reviews of these products, so if you would like to see a more in-depth review of any of these products, please just leave me a comment below :D

John Freida Root Lift Foam - I was very skeptical about putting product on my roots, as they are very prone to getting greasy. However, I was really surprised that after using this my hair did not become greasy any quicker than it normally would, plus I did notice some more volume after using this product.

John Freida Deep Conditioner - This is my favourite product and I have really noticed the quality of my hair from mid-low lengths in comparison to when I wasn't using it.

John Freida Perfect Ends - I have been using this on towel dried hair and have found my ends to be a lot of shiny and healthy looking, in comparison to them being very dry and sometimes frizzy.

I'm also using Clynol Wonder 10 as another treatment and my post can be found HERE

Styling Products
Recently, I have been styling my hair a little more thanks to the lovely results I saw from using the Enrapture totem barrel. I can create so many different curls and I can also create a real quick 10-15 minute look, which is great for when you don't have time to curl your hair properly, If you would like to see the post click Here. I have also been using the OSIS +* flatiner hair protector which has helped to protect my hair from when I have been using heat. I also use my Batiste dry shampoo to either help freshen my hair up, but also to add an extra bit of volume when I need it. I don't tend to use hairspray that much, but when I do I always opt for Pantene's flexible hold which I find to be light and not sticky.
My personal tips and tricks 
- Use minimal or no heat at all, If you do have to use heat then make sure your protector is good!
- I hardly ever use a hair dry my hair! I find that towel drying it and putting it up in a bun really helps to create natural movement.
- My mum has recently started taking pure collagen which has thickened and her hair so much its unreal, and she has noticed some growth! - You can find this for a decent price from Holland and Barrett, they also do this product which is more specific to helping your hair condition (click here)
- I personally haven't used it but a few people have said that the Lee Stafford Hair Growth products are quite good. I don't believe this is a miracle product, but I do think it would help your hair grow overtime due to its protein base.

I hope this post has helped you out a little :) if you have anymore questions please comment below or tweet @jewelbeautyblog for a quicker answer :D - Also leave your tips and tricks if you have any for others to see  as well :)

Love

  2. Wish my hair was longer. I've been using the Lee Stafford hair growth set for a while. Not sure how much difference it has made but it is a nice shampoo, conditioner and treatment! Nice post.

    1. I have never tried it :( I can't imagine it will magically work, but maybe the protein base helps to grow it overtime maybe ?

  26. Your hair is simply amazing! I think I might get the John Frieder deep conditioner as I use the shampoo and conditioner in that range and love it. I also love using the Tresemme liquid gold oil in the ends of my hair before drying, makes it so soft and it's not very expensive at all xx

  41. For hair that is dry/damaged – and desperately in need of love – I perform a regular deep conditioning treatment! A mixture of 4 tablespoons of conditioner and 3 tablespoons of cold pressed virgin Coconut Oil from Merit VCO works wonders for me! My hair feels so much healthier afterwards, and since using it, it’s almost dandruff-free! I simply work it into myhair when damp, towel wrap, and leave to work its magic for around 2 hours, before rinsing. I treat my hair to this ‘healing session’ every other week, although it would be even more beneficial to do so weekly. Depending on the extent of damage, you might even want to skip the conditioner, applying only Coconut Oil.

    Since discovering Aloe vera gel and coconut oil I have not looked back. I really recommend giving it a go. I hope you are amazed as I was how easy it is to have good looking hairwithout spending a fortune.
