Back To Black

You may of may not of noticed I've gone back to black hair. The blonde days are over and I'm back to strengthening and thickening the hair. It's not so much about length anymore as it is about just health. Going back to black is allowing me to do that without compromising my hair colour. While blonde, certain oils would strip my hair of it's colour and change the tone and it was becoming too much work to keep it looking fresh for my liking.

I continue to wash my hair twice a week, Wednesday and Saturday. Wednesday I reserve for a co-wash and a hair masque and Saturday I do a full wash, shampoo, condition, masque, steam etc. I love to start off with the Grow Gorgeous Back Into the Roots 10 Minute Stimulating Scalp Masque it gives this cooling tingingling sensation on the scalp once it begins to settle. The ingredients are infused with burdock root, hyaluronic acid, vitamins and caffeine. Burdock root I can imagine is a high key ingredient because it's known to help restore hair. It relieves the scalp of irritations and improves blood circulation to the hair follicle, it's traditionally used to reduce and reverse hair thinning. I wash this out after 10 minutes. If it's Wednesday I continue with the Grow Gorgeous 11-in-1 Cleansing Conditioner, I apply and massage and work it in like I would my shampoo, I continue to wash my body if I'm in the shower and before I'm ready to get out I will rinse this out. Because there's no foaming agents within the cleanser, you won't see much foam or feel that the hair has been stripped of any oils or if your hair has been coloured as this is aimed to also help seal the hair colour.

I read about Olaplex earlier this year and it was treated as an in-salon only treatment and very few salons in the UK were providing the treatment. It's used to help protect hair that is being lightened although it's primarily being marketed as that it can also be used to heal heat damage for a variety of hair types. The brand got more exposure when Kim Kardashian was said that she was able to start to repair the damage of the green undertone platinum they gave her earlier this year with the use of the Olaplex No.3, she said she sleeps in the treatment. If I was planning to lift my hair again, I'd certainly go to a Olaplex providing salon but as I've now coloured by hair back and it's still suffering slightly from prior heat, bleach etc. I decided to get the take home system that is given after the salon treatment. Olaplex Hair Perfector No.3 Take Home Treatment is a diluated product of Step One of the system. You live it on for 10 minutes according to the bottle on pre-washed, towel dried hair, or longer after shampooing but I know people sleep with the product in, as it's getting to cold for that, it's probably better to wash the hair earlier in the day and if you don't plan on going out, leave it on while you get on with your day. It's a once a week treatment but can be used more than that weekly. I find a dollop per section of my hair suffices enough and I apply it, massage it in and comb it through and twist it up. Then I'll wash it out.

After I've put my hair products in for my hair the scalp needs love and I use the Grow Gorgeous Hair Growth Serum to promote growth on my scalp, this needs to be done in the morning or the evening. I prefer the evening as I tend to really sit down and pay attention before bed. It says you need 20 drops daily I apply the drops into a small bowl and section my hair into 4s and work each section with the oil. When that's finished the Grow Gorgeous End Split Ends Leave-in Serum is then applied onto the ends, my hair needs it. I've recently trimmed my hair where it was just sad but it needs a little bit more love, I'm seeing how well this does to my split ends it has Amazonian oils of açaí, palm and inca inchi in the ingredients - ah oils - I love you.

I like to seal my hair with my homemade carrier oils and essential oils combination but it can be slightly thick and heavy, so daily when my hair needs a bit more oil I will use the Merumaya Everything Everywhere Beauty Oil, it's very light and where the hair needs a bit more moisture to keep it going, I'll apply this. This product is amazing because it can be used anywhere on the body if necessary, facial oil, body oil, hair oil...nothing is left out with this oil. The beauty oil contains Kahai Oil, this boosts more benefits than Argan Oil and 50% more Vitamin E and twice as much Linoleic (Essential Fatty Acids). EVEN has 3x times more anti-ageing Retinol than rosehip oil. It's also blended in with a couple of oil favourites of mine oat, grapeseed and jojoba oils - a super beauty oil or what?

  1. Well girl...I love this post! All about hair strengthening at the mo! But are any of these products sulphate free?

    1. I'm glad, thank you. Yes the conditioner has no foaming agents - sulfates free and everything else have no SLS from what I've seen looking online. I don't use shampoo during my mid-week wash and the ones I do on a Saturday don't contain harsh foaming agents.
