I have something of a love/hate relationship with my hair. My friends, as well as some long time readers of my blog, will know that I'm a minimal effort kinda girl when it comes to hair: I simply don't know how to manage, and nor do I have the patience to tame, it into anything more than it falls naturally.

Having said that, I've recently discovered my perfect set of haircare and thought I'd 'share my thoughts' seeing as I always seem to get comments about this mane that lives atop my head. I should probably also note here that my hair is typically normal/dry, is naturally straight (unless I sleep with it damp, which is a no-no in my books) and is also quite thick. Basically, I have a lot of it at the moment.

My current shampoo of choice, as it has been since November, is the Aussie Miracle Moist shampoo. Pricey? A little. Worth it? Yes. I absolutely love this shampoo and couldn't see myself going without it any more, that's how much I like it. It smells lovely and sweet without being overpowering and injects my hair with moisture to the point that I probably don't need to condition. Apparently it contains Macadamia nut oil which is pretty good.

For a weekly or twice-weekly pamper, I like to treat my tresses to the Sensai Intensive Hair Mask. I found this hidden beneath heaps of products in my InStyle intern's leaving bag and instantly tried it out. It leaves my hair soft to the touch and rather glossy too! I'd definitely recommend this as a pampering product - it isn't too heavy yet smells really rich and luxurious, if you know what I mean?

Finally, I've been testing out the Argania Hair Oil recently. An obvious rival of the blogger infamous Moroccan Oil, this is scented so heavily to the point that it is sickly sweet, and my friends ask if I've rolled around in sweets. So er, yeah. I use this very sparingly when the ends of my hair need extra moisture, or if it is particularly blustery outside. Gemma has written a great post offering advice about hair oils, which I'd recommend reading before hopping out and spending a lot of money on empty promises.

I do still use my Neal & Wolf shine spray and volume boost serum, for anyone who was wondering. Both have managed to last me a year, and I'll be repurchasing both of those when they finally run out. You can find my previous reviews of them here and here

  1. Im the same when it comes to my hair, I never do anything with it I hardly ever brush it either :\ haha which probably isnt any good for it! Im a Aussie lover too, I think there products are so good they always leave my hair feeling really conditioned. I use the Luscious Long range :)

  2. Aussie is my 1st choice for hair I must say. I swear by their 'take that heat' 3 minute conditioner and their Luscious Long hair care range - works a treat. I'd love to try the Sensai hair mask, never heard of it before, perhaps for a birthday treat as it is a bit on the pricey side! Also how is the magazine? :)

  6. I'm like you in that I don't do too much to my hair, I shampoo/condition, brush & blow dry, but don't bother with anything else. Definitely need a shampoo that will make my dry hair better though, so I may have to try this as I've heard good things from quite a few people x

  7. I used to use that shampoo religiously before I got a bottle of Kerastase as a present and now I find it hard to go back.. haha. I know what you mean about not doing anything to your hair though, I am SO lazy when it comes to 'styling'. My 'styling' involves brushing it, if you're lucky! xx

  8. Love Aussie's Miracle Moist shampoo too! It always surprises me how long the bottles last compared to other shampoos I've used. x

  9. We have the exact same hair. It seems I always have too much of it. Yours, however, is a lot more light and voluminous.

  10. I've been using the Aussie Miracle Moist as well! I agree, it smells absolutely amazing! Every now and then I use the Neal & Wolf intensive conditioner if I feel my hair is a little drier. I've not been too fussed about haircare but since I've been blogging...I've discovered some amazing brands!

  12. Awesome, I love aussie stuff, I usually use their everyday mega shampoo and add in a teensy bit of baking powder to remove build up.

  17. i've always wondered how the aussie products are

  18. I remember watching a programme on tv several years ago (actually a lot more than several sadly) and they tried an experiment where they got a woman to not wash her hair for a month to see what happens. Apart from running it under some clean water twice she stuck to the plan. And after a month she revealed what her hair looked like without shampooing for a month. The result was gorgeous beautiful hair full of body and life. Your head has all it needs to look after itself apprently and we ruin it by using shampoos.

  19. The only Aussie product I've tried is the 3 minute miracle and I really didn't like the smell :( I'm SO lazy with my hair, most of the time I can't be bothered to even dry it - all I do is run Moroccan oil through it! x
