Despite this I had managed to accumulate a ridiculous amount of hair products. I've kept the ones I love, managed to use some things up, and I'm passing the ones that don't work for me along to someone who will love giving them a try.
Bed Head Epic Volume Shampoo (£7.43 for 250ml)
This is my all time favourite shampoo. I don't buy it too often because it's quite pricey, although I do think the big salon size duos are definitely worth the investment if you find one that you really like because they last forever! It really does give my hair more volume and the strawberry scent is so nice. The conditioner is equally as lovely and they compliment each other perfectly.
Lee Stafford Detangling Spray (£6.99 for 150ml)
This was my second bottle and it really does the job nicely. My hair doesn't get super knotty, but I really liked using this in the winter months because it gave my hair a touch of extra moisture without being as heavy as some leave-in conditioners can be. It's not something I'm going to rush out and repurchase but I do like it and would recommend if your hair tends to get particularly knotty.
Lee Stafford Breaking Hair Split Ends Serum* (£9.99 for 50ml)
This bottle is pretty much still full despite me using it quite a lot. It's a really light weight formula and not sticky at all. I'm just not sure if it actually does anything. I was never expecting it to mend split ends, I don't think anything can really do that apart from a good trim! Could be a nice one if you have particularly dry ends, but I'd probably be tempted to go for an oil instead. It didn't wow me.
Percy & Reed Dry Conditioner* (£12 for 150ml)
Argh, no! This made my hair look super dry and feel horrible, which is the complete opposite of what I was expecting. Not the biggest fan of the scent either. And the lid doesn't fit properly, it keeps falling off. Not one for me.
Beauty Protector Protect & Oil* (£16 for 118ml)
I really like the sweet scent of this oil, it's a little like vanilla cupcakes. It's really hydrating and nourishing but I feel like it's just a little too much for me. It adds a lot of drying time to my hair and even then the ends can look a little oily. I can see it being really lovely on more normal/dry hair types.
Pureology Silk Bodifier Volumising Mousse* (£20)
This came in a beauty box and it was really nice to try out a more expensive mousse. I'm starting to come to the conclusion that mousse just isn't for me though. I hoped for lots of volume and bouncy locks, but unfortunately I was left with flat, slightly oily looking hair. This happens with a lot of mousse products and my hair though, so don't let me put you off entirely!
Toni & Guy Stick It Up Gum* (£7.49 for 90ml)
This is a product I've probably not given a fair chance. I tried it once and I thought it was okay and now I'm thinking I should keep hold of it for a while and give it another try. I do go through phases of styling my hair, maybe I'll reach for it more in the spring when I like a messier, undone look. Back in the cupboard it goes. I shouldn't have done this post, it would be sitting in a new by home now and I wouldn't be thinking ooh, actually I'll keep this! ;)
VO5 Smoothly Does It Frizz Free Creme (£3.89 for 100ml)
My mum gave me this after she tried it & didn't really like it and I actually do really like it. It does exactly what it says it will and I use it every time I blow-dry my hair. It's not a total miracle worker but my hair is a lot smoother compared to when I forget to use it. It's a definite repurchase and I love that it's so affordable.
Do you have any must-have hair products or do you prefer to keep things simple?
