2014 Favourites: Hair Care Products!

At the beginning of every year I like to write up a list of my favourite products from the last as a little look back and round up.  I decided to split products up in to 6 categories this year – Hair, Skin, Eyes, Lips, Foundations and Blushers (as opposed to 5 the last – as I had too many favourite blushers this year and couldn’t fit them in the same category as my fav face/base products)!

First up are my favourite hair care products from 2014!

Tangle Teezer: One of the biggest bains of my life is how tangled and matted my hair gets on a daily basis.  I just have to walk out of the house with my hair down and five minutes later I have a birds nest at the base of my neck.  Tangle Teezers have become my saviours in the past year and this wet one is my favourite.  I use it to comb conditioner through my hair and again before blow drying.  It’s just the best at removing knots and I know have about 6 dotted around the house!

CoLab Dry Shampoo: 2014 saw the launch of a new dry shampoo to hit Superdrug stores; Colab.  Fronted by the gorgeous Ruth from A Model Recommends, the range contains 5 cans; London, Paris, Tokyo, Rio and New York.  They all smell amazing (my favourites are London which is a classic scent and Rio which is tropical) and they are so light and leave no chalky residue in the hair which makes them perfect for refreshing your locks.

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer: I have a big thing for hair masks and do one at least once a week.  As my hair gets so knotty, I think masks really helps to condition and stops it getting so tangled.  Elasticizer is my current favourite; it feels so luxurious and my hair literally feels like silk once dried.  It’s pricey but a real luxury treat for me!

Morrocan Oil Treatment: As well as masks, I also have a big soft spot for hair oils.  I use them daily on the ends of my hair to keep them soft and managable.  This one smells incredible (Andrew always compliments me on how good my hair smells after I use this) and is quite light so as long as you use a small pea size amount your hair won’t be left looking greasy.

Bleach London Super Cool Colours: These babies launched in 2013 but I have only recently got round to trying them out at home and LOVE them so much.  I have pretty much always had blonde hair and so at the end of last year I decided to experiment and add some bright shades to my hair.  These dyes are semi permanent and wash out in 2-10 washes.  They smell amazing and the shades are super cute; my favourites are Awkward Peach and Washed Up Mermaid!

Next up in my 2014 Favourites is Eye products; keep an eye out!

    That's a crazy shaped Tangle Teezer! I couldn't live without mine, or my L'Oreal Elixir Oil – both saviours for my matted mane!

    I would love to try colourful shades in my hair, but I'm a really dark brunette so it would require bleaching, which is permanent and most colourful dyes are only semi permanent! I also love the Colab dry shampoos, they smell lovely too! x

    When I visit London in a few weeks I can't wait to pick up some of the CoLab dry shampoo as I can't find it any of the Dublin stores!

    I've heard a lot of good things about the Bleach Hair Dyes, definitely thinking of trying them out soon! I too was a big fan of the Colab Dry Shampoo, it's saved me a lot over the past few months!

    Happy New Year! x

    The tangle teezer looks great, my hair gets a big matted birds nest at the back like yours, especially if I wear a scarf (which is a must at the moment as its so cold) I am definitely going to give this a try!
    I'm a big fan of morrocan oil too, it makes such a huge difference to the ends πŸ™‚ I also loved the herbal essences dry shampoo last year, it gives such a huge amount of volume!
    Happy New Year!

    I really like the Toni and Guy heat protectant as it smells AMAZING! and you can also use it on wet and dry hair which is really useful if i'm just straightening my hair but not washing it πŸ™‚ Love seeing all the 'looking back' posts πŸ™‚

    I love the tangle teezer, its being featured in a post coming up on my blog soon if you want to check it out x

    Ah my hair always gets tangled at the base of my neck too! The struggle is real. I'll have to try out that Tangle Teezer! Ummm….and I couldn't agree with you more – Moroccan Oil has the best scent! I love the way it smoothes out my hair! <3

    Philip Kingsley Elasticizer is not a hair mask. It's a per-treatment before shampooing to remove build-up of various hair products…

    i discovered morrocan oil in 2014 as well, and i also love it!

    I started using oils in 2014 and it has completely changed my approach to hair! I currently use the Orofluido one and I love it!

    I have wanting to try those Bleach London colors for ages! Those colors all look so fun and like they would be perfect for the summer time πŸ™‚ I definitely loved Jojoba oil this year and all of the uses for it!

    Agh, this looks SO gorgeous! I know what you mean about the cold and yourself not mixing well, haha. Wishing so badly that we had castles in the states πŸ™‚
