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!
