Chanel Fall 2009 Couture AKA ‘The Most Beautiful Hair Evah’
Although it’s very pretty, my hair has been a life-long problem. Why? I’ve had greys since my early 20s and have been colouring my hair every eight weeks for the last six years (so much money spent, I could have bought several If I Were Rich items). Dyeing is a vicious circle: it covers those unsightly greys, but it also makes my hair so ridiculously dry. Especially if you add a flat iron or a curler to the mix. Being a beauty blogger, I get a lot of products so I’m always experimenting, but here’s what’s on my summer roster at the moment.
Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask ($36.80 at selected hair salons)
Once a week I use this Moroccanoil mask instead of my conditioner. 5-10 minutes and it’s a world of difference without weighing down the hair. Of course, like all Moroccanoil products, it smells divine.
Oribe ‘Maximista’ Thickening Spray ($27 at Beautymark)
Then, while my hair is still wet, I apply Oribe’s ‘Maximista’ at the roots for extra volume. I find that it really assists lifting those roots out in half the time when blow drying. It also makes the hair feel strong but still really pliable.
Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment ($36 at Sephora)
Right before I finish blow-drying and before I move on to the flat iron, I use a teeny tiny bit of Couture Colour Pequi oil and run it through the ends with my fingertips. It makes the ends super shiny and hides the traces of dryness. Plus, it really gets along with my flat iron: splendidly brilliant. Almost like Chanel hair!
