Current Favourite Hair Products

I have a confession to make.
I wash my hair once a week - twice a week at best.
I find washing, drying, and styling my hair such a chore - and after 2 hours of effort it just feels too soft, flat and clean! I love a dirty mane, not greasy (that's what dry shampoo was invented for) but something with a bit of body and grip, something that you can shove up, give it a pinch and a pull here and there and it holds it volume and looks fab!

When I do wash my hair I love to give it a full detox... and then start the process all over again! The below products are what I'm currently using and loving.


To start I use Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes Shampoo - this is a purple shampoo so keeps my blonde looking blonde and not brassy. I then apply Lee Stafford Treatment (for hair that never grows past a certain length) - this is a cream product that you apply all over, I use an egg sized portion and run from root to tip, I then leave this in for 5 minutes so it can really work its magic (cue shaving the legs, and exfoliation to pass the time...)

I then finish off with Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes Conditioner. I love using Lee Stafford products, they smell incredible and really make a difference to my hair. I tried not using the Treatment once and my hair felt a lot drier and knottier without it. I've been using the treatment for over a year now, I don't think I could 100% promise that you will see your hair miraculously grow 10 inches overnight but I do think it helps!


I've never been able to just 'Wash & Go' - 1. My hair is far too frizzy 2. It goes too soft and flat. Once I've towel dried my hair I grab Lee Stafford Argan Oil (spotted the obsession for Lee Stafford?!) I apply 2 pumps from root to tip, and then 1 more pump just at the tips, I then comb this through to make sure it's evenly distributed.

Next I take John Frieda Sheer Blonde Lightening Spray - I tried the whole John Frieda Blonde Range and hated it, this was the only thing that does what it promises! To start I brush all my hair back and spray a few spritzes from root to tip, I then find my parting and spray again. Like the Argan Oil I comb this all through.

Finally I take Fat Hair '0' Calories Amplifying Mousse and apply a generous amount all over my hair - I have tried a lot of volumising mousses and this is a firm favourite, pretty reasonable too!!! To finish I blast my hair upside down with a hair dryer, this gives me as much volume as possible while making me look like a lion.



I literally cannot step out of the house with my natural hair so now it's time to pick up the GHD's. I straighten my hair and then once finished apply a bit of Bumble & Bumble Texture Creme to give it a bit of a messy, I haven't just spent to 2 hours on my hair look Finally I spritz some TIGI You're Royal Highness Hairspray to set everything. If I was heading straight out I also use VO5 Give Me Texture to add a bit of va-va-voom!

So now that I've shared with you my long winded hair routine... I'd love to hear what your favourite hair products and tips are so I can have a go myself!



  1. I have the Argan Oil and it somehow doesn't work for me, I don't know why. I need to try this Bumble and Bumblee texture cream! xx

  2. Great post :) x

  3. I really want to try the Fat Hair, my hair seems lack that extra volume I always want. I personally love the Lee Stafford Flat Iron Protection Shine Mist, it makes my hair look more luxurious than it does without! xx

  5. I've got to admit I am pretty bad when it comes to using hair products. My hair is so naturally straight & limp that I've never found something to work for my hair, I would love to find something to give it some body! The bumble & bumble texture crème sounds pretty good.

  9. I am completely with you with the whole wash 'n' go thing, everyone thinks I'm high maintenance but if I don't style my hair I look like Hagrid haha! The oil sounds really good though :) I'm also intrigued by the go blonder spray. It's a shame the rest of the range weren't that great but this sounds like a winner!

  10. I've been dying to try the BB Texture Creme! It looks like it would be perfect for my hair.

  11. I am definitely going to give that Fat Hair mousse a go! Sounds fab :)

  12. some great products girl!
