Hair care is not something I have ever spent a lot of money on, I have very little hair so there isn’t that much to tend to. I do like a good cut and when I find a hairdresser I like I stick to them. My hair salon of choice is Cheynes on York Place in Edinburgh and I get my hair cut by the lovely and super talented Mark. Go and get your hair done by him, you will not be disappointed.
Day to day I generally stick to a High Street shampoo and conditioner – at the moment it is Herbal Essences – and blow dry my hair before styling. All in, it takes me about 10 minutes if even that. Benefit of short hair right there. When it comes to stylish and finishing (don’t giggle, that’s not funny) I generally stick to four products that I know do the job and don’t break the bank. When it comes to hair products, I am a bit of a sucker for packaging. I love the Lee Stafford bright pink garish pots and bottles, the smell of these products is also a massive plus point.

Describe your haircut in 3 words.
Pixie, messy and voluminous.
That was actually a lot harder than I anticipated. Try it, you know you want to. Make it descriptive. Don’t just go long, brown and straight.
Anyway back to the point of this post and enough of my childish games.
I used this on towel dried hair to give my hair a little bit of extra shine and to smooth down the hair before I blow dry. My hair isn’t overly frizzy however this just makes everything very sleek without adding weight. The bottle is also huge, I’ve had this for about 4-5 months and used it pretty much everyday so it is definite value for money.
Before I blow dry my hair and after I’ve used the L’oreal hair oil, I like to put a couple sprays of this sculpting sprits in my fringe to give a wee bit of control over where I am blow drying my hair to. I realise that may sound counter productive when I said the hair oil gives me smooth hair but this product just gives a bit of glue almost to the hair so that when I blow dry my fringe over to the right it sits much better in that position.
Hair is dry and I’ve probably put my make up on. Next step is to take about a 20p piece size amount of hair wax and rub it between my hands then begin to work the product through my hair. I like to focus this mostly on the top of my head to create a ltitle bit of a messed up look before making sure my fringe is sitting the way I want it to and ensuring the back is smooth. This is a really great product and one I go back to again and again.
The final step before I leave the house is to give my hair a quick spray of this texturising hairspray. This holds everything in place and adds a little extra texture to my hair. It can go a little crunchy from time to time but that is probably due to the fact that I use a bit too much! My bad.
