Four Things ♥︎ All About Hair


A new post in my Four Things series, this one is all about hair! Generally, my haircare routine is pretty simple; shampoo, condition then air dry. I have been trying out other products but to be honest, I haven't found a lot of hair products that have blown me away. There has been some that I've liked, some that I didn't, and some that I felt neutral on. Before I share my thoughts on these four hair products, I'll briefly talk about my hair type as everybody is different and things don't always work the same for everyone. So I am pretty lucky when it comes to hair because it is soft, grows out quickly and doesn't require much to get that way (this is great for my head hair but means I have to shave my legs all the time!) I do however struggle a bit with frizz and flyaways. The humidity here in Australia can get intense sometimes and my hair does not seem to like it. I can get oily roots and slightly dry ends but nothing too dramatic.

TRESemmé Heat Tamer Protective Spray
This is a product that I've been using for years. It was the heat protectant that so many YouTubers were talking about and because it was super affordable I decided to pick it up. I used to straighten my hair every now and then but I rarely use heat on my hair now. Whenever I do though I always use this heat protectant. The spray nozzle is great, it doesn't have an awkward amount or pressure (have you ever tried something that sprays really awkwardly?) so it is easy to get a nice application. The scent is pleasant too so that's a bonus!

Not Your Mother's She's a Tease Volumising Hair Spray
I purchased this in search for a hairspray that would help with the flyaways on the top of my head. The packaging is pretty and sturdy. The nozzle has a good spray application as well. BUT, I really dislike the scent of this. It claims to be infused with natural apple blossom and bamboo, so I was expecting a lovely fresh scent (of course with a hint of that typical hairspray smell) but after spraying it in my hair I got a whiff of fermented fruit. I have continued to use this spray because I didn't want the money to be a complete waste, and the scent could be worked around if I sprayed it in a brush first then used that to brush down the flyaways. Then I spray something else in my hair such as my SunBum leave-in treatment or my new John Frieda leave-in conditioner to make sure my hair smells nice and not like the hairspray itself. I wouldn't repurchase but I am making it work.

Batiste Dry Shampoo Cherry
I have tried a few different dry shampoos and am yet to find one that I love. I didn't hate this one by any means, it's probably the best one I have used. The scent is lovely too! But I don't love it because it doesn't really fix my oily roots as much as I'd like it to. I personally prefer to wash my hair, and I do so almost every night. I know you're not supposed to according to the haircare rules, but this is what works best for me at the moment. Because I workout most days I also sweat and I don't like the thought of having a sweaty scalp. Of course, you do not have to wash your hair that much, even if you sweat. Everyone has their own way of dealing with that but mine is to simply wash my hair. Sometimes I try to go two days without washing my hair, sometimes three. Honestly, day three is totally fine, but it's dealing with day two that I cannot stand. Anyone else get frustrated with day two hair? Because washing my hair every day is a bit drying, I like to wash it every one and a half days. For me, that's the perfect amount. I have been reading some posts with tips on how to wash your hair less frequently if you're one who is a daily washer and they've been useful.

Pantene Ultimate 10 BB Creme
A BB creme for hair that claims to moisturise, detangle, defrizz and more. I purchased this in hopes of being able to tame the frizz in my hair. To apply, I use one or two pumps in my hands then just comb it through the mids and ends of my hair. It can be applied both when your hair is damp or dry, but personally, I prefer using this when my hair is about 70% dry. This is a nice product to add a bit of softness to your hair, it also smells lovely and gives a nice shine. It's not a miracle worker but I do enjoy using this. I've almost used it all up and although I do like it, I will probably try some other products before repurchasing it as I'm still looking for something that will REALLY help with frizz.

Let me know if you've tried any of these and what your holy grail hair products are!
