Winter hair wonders


My hair goes pretty damn crazy most of the time as it's really fine, but come winter I tend to resemble a scarecrow which isn't a good look. Luckily I have a few reliable products which keep my mop under relative control.

You may have guessed that I'm not a natural redhead (weeps), so while I try my best to fake it by dyeing it, this isn't great for my hair. I only use permanent dye on my roots and semi-permanent on the lengths so the damage is pretty low, but it still dries my hair out a bit and does weaken it. Once a week I use the V05 Give Me Moisture Hot Oil Treatment (£4.29). I've used this for as long as I can remember and couldn't be without it. You soak the tube in the bath for a minute to warm it up before massaging it into your hair and washing out. This is a pre-wash treatment so it doesn't make your hair greasy, just super soft and hydrated.

Another massively repurchased product is the Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Intense Hair Mask (£4.79). The tub lasts for ages and smells awesome so it's always a treat to use. I've used so many masks in the past, both cheap and expensive but I always come back to this. This is also a once a week treat for my hair and when used with the V05 Hot Oil my hair feels so soft and happy. Happy hair = happy Laura. Every time I wash my hair I apply Moroccan Oil (£13.45) to it once it's been towel dried. I've been using this for a long time now and it's dramatically changed the condition to my hair. It adds shine and has helped reduce split ends too. A little miracle worker!

My hair does like to get frizzy in the winter so I've been using the Living Proof Style Extender Spray (£18) before styling. Applied to towel dried hair, this gorgeous smelling primer seems to make my hair look so much better and it stops it from going a bit crazy in the harsh elements. It keeps my hair sleek and straight and if I don't use it my hair just isn't the same. I spoke about this earlier in the week but I love the Phyto 7 Hydrating Day Cream (£15.50). A tiny blob smoothed into the ends seals in moisture and stops the dreaded static. I'm always wearing scarves or tucking my hair in my jumpers which makes my hair look like I've lost a fight with a balloon so this primer is essential.

If all else fails or I really can't be bothered, I put my hair into a rough bun with an Invisibobble (£4). This is a pretty weird little hair band, but it doesn't drag on my hair and keeps everything in place. As my hair is fine it has a tendency to come out of normal hair bands but this seems to keep it in check.

These are just a few things that I find help my hair in winter, but I hope you have discovered something new and if you have any tips to share I'm all ears...
