My Haircare Trio

Recently I have discovered my perfect haircare trio. I have never been one to "love" haircare as my hair is quite low maintenance and no products have ever wow-ed me. This has all changed since finding these three products and using them in conjunction with each other.



Kerastase Bain Divalent Shampoo
This is a shampoo I had my eyes on for a long time, it is for those with oily roots and sensitive/dry ends... people like me! However, I never bought it as I was always sceptical but during the FeelUnique summer sale I decided to just go for it. Let me tell you I am so glad I did. On the first few washes I liked this shampoo and when paired with the Dove conditioner I love the pairing. It wasn't, however, until I had finally used up this shampoo and starting using another shampoo from a different brand that I realised how amazing it was! It cleansed my hair without stripping it or drying out my ends yet didn't leave me greasy by the second day. I usually have to 100% wash my hair on third days however this shampoo let me get away with a quick spritz of dry shampoo. I loved how well it cleaned my hair and stripped its excess oils without being too "clarifying" or over-nourishing. Plus the bottle lasts for a very long time so the £13.20 price tag isn't so tough as it lasted me a good 2-3 months. If you, like me, have long hair which is oily at the roots and dry at the ends and have just not found the one, I urge you to try this!

Dove Damage Therapy Intensive Repair Daily Super Conditioner
Having already been a fan of the Dove Super Conditioners I thought I would try another. I picked up the blue bottle which is the Damage Therapy one and it is incredible. This conditioner is a hybrid between a conditioner and a deep treatment mask so is good for regular (not daily) use. With the clarifying wash from the Kerastase product I need to inject some moisture back into my hair. Plus during these cold winds it needs and the fact that a hair cut is long over due my hair needs an extra pick me up. This conditioner manages to superbly condition my hair and leaves it feeling silky smooth without a tangle in sight! The best part is how light my hair feels. Post-shower my hair feels like it has just popped out from the hairdressers and to be able to gain that experience at home is seriously amazing. If you find that most conditioners weigh your hair down or make your hair too greasy then do try this out! The best part is it is incredibly good value for money.
* I must state that I do usually like to use a hair oil after getting out of the shower to smooth my ends and give it that lightweight movement. However, I have about 3 hair oils lying around and chop and change between them as I haven't found my "one" true oil yet (recommendations welcome).

Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk
For those in-between days when the thought of getting out of your warm bed half an hour early to wash your hair seems like the largest struggle in the world Klorane steps in and saves the day. I am quite the lazy person and even though I love baths and the fresh clean feeling you get post-wash. I hate showering. It is such an effort and I just want to skip past it to get to the clean part! So sometimes that is exactly what I do. I usually have a love-hate relationship with dry shampoo as I love that I get the extra time in bed but as soon as it is sprayed into my hair I regret it and wish I had showered as it instantly makes me feel dirtier. This however is, if a spray can be, a very finely milled dry shampoo. Due to the fact that it has Oat Milk in it, it feels very light weight in the hair and doesn't leave that heavy matte white texture and appearance in your hair. This just gets rid of any excess oils without feeling heavy in your hair. The best dry shampoo I have ever encountered!

What are your favourite haircare products?
