L'oreal elvive shampoo (extraordinary oil and colour protect) and macadamia oil hair mask

L'oreal elvive shampoo and hair mask for my current haircare routine

Tresemme hair creme for frizzy hair and avon hair serum for dry hair

I admit, my hair isn't exactly in the most looked-after condition: its long, thick and prone to dryness that makes me just give up on it sometimes. So, in an attempt to tame it, I've started to mix up the hair products I use to find what works best but what I instead found was that it reacts best to change! Above are the products I am currently using, and might I add loving, for these warmer months.

I have been a fan of the L'oreal Elvive range for a while now. I usually go for the Elvive Nutri-gloss (the pink one) in both the shampoo and conditioner, but I find that this new-found combination works really well. The Colour Protect shampoo protects my freshly dyed hair which is great, but honestly, I can't really judge how well it works - all i know that, as of yet, my hair colour has not faded at all which is always a good sign. Then the Extraordinary Oil Conditioner thoroughly nourishes my hair well, and I feel its thick consistency and oil really does leave my hair feeling softer.

When my hair is in need of a little more TLC, I like to put on this hair mask and let it soak in of a good 10-20 minutes. It contains Macadamia Oil Extract which is always going to be a good treatment for your hair. I found this in Poundland at a steal for, you guessed it, £1! Its always good to use a hair mask like this, especially if your hair is prone to frizziness or damaged from heat appliances.

These two serums are also currently in use, depending on how my hair is feeling that day. If its working with me, I like to use the Tresemme creme which just smoothes flyaways. It smells really good too, the kind of fresh and clean smell you usually find at a salon. If the frizz just won't calm down, the Avon serum is great to use on the ends of my hair to give a really nice, silky finish that defines my curls just at the bottom of my hair, which I love.

So there are my regular haircare products! Any similar items in your collection?
