Holy Trinity of Hair

I am in no way a hair aficionado, hence why I held off for so long posting anything to do with my unruly locks. However, I noticed the other day that no matter where I travel to whether it be, home to London, to my boyfriends or off on holiday I always have to have my three hair essentials. My version of the hair holy trinity!

Hair is one of those things I wish I was good at, but I have zero patience and far too many curling tong war wounds to keep trying. It’s due to this, my hair day to day is normally straight and down or up in a ponytail with the occasional curls chucked in when I have extra time. All very simple and easy styles that take limited to no skills at all to achieve.

I suppose in order for you to understand why I love these products so much I should give you a little run down on my “hair history”. About 2 two years ago I took the drastic step of going blonde. It took about a year of full heads of highlights and toning to get the exact colour I wanted. All this bleach obviously knackered my hair so I decide about 8 months ago to chop it into a long bob. Loved this for all of about 5 minutes and then frantically tried to grow it back- not the easiest job with bleached frazzled hair. This was when I decide I needed to go back to natural. Not wanting to undo all that hard work of the blonde, I opted for a semi-permanent dye at my roots and left a lot of the bleach at the end . Somehow, this has faded into a natural ombre style where my natural colour is healthy and growing and I still have the bleach and the end. It’s because of this drastic action my hair has grown a lot. These products saved my ass when I was blonde, as there were stages I couldn’t even get a brush through it! Now it’s healthier I still love them and with that nagging feeling in the back of my mind telling me to, “blonde it up” again, I know I will need them more than ever soon. So enough of that long winded explanation, here is my hair Holy Trinity.

First up is not going to be a shock to anyone, my beloved Tangle Teezer. This is pretty much a staple in most people handbags now, but if you don’t have one, you need to invest ASAP! It’s a pain free brushing experience and will save you hours in the morning if you have an unruly mane like mine.
This one is more generic and not brand specific, it’s hair oil. Like I say, I’m not really fussy, I’ve had high end and low end ones and I’m currently using up a Tressme one I enjoy. To be honest, I don’t see much difference between them as long as they help me get a brush through my hair and leave it shiny and nourished I’m in.
Last but not least is the John Frieda 3 day straight. I used to use this sparingly as it can be expensive for a very small amount of product, but I recently found it in Home Bargains for £1.99 and I stocked up. Even with the higher price tag, it’s always on offer and defo worth trying if you have frizzy wavy hair like mine.

Like I say these are my hair must haves; I do however, have several other products I use for different styles, so if you would like more hair posts let me know.
