Why Spending a little more on your hair could change how your hair looks

September 21, 2015

Hair is really important to most of us women. Shiny, thick, full hair- who wouldn't say no to that?

Colouring hair regularly, using incorrect products, and over using hair straighteners/curlers all takes a toll on our hair and can damage it in the long run making it weak. I enjoy getting a blow dry every now and then, I think there is no better feeling of your hair been touched and washed by someone else, and the perfect blow dry that makes you feel so good.

Over the last few years Iv spent a little more on Shampoo, Conditioner and Masks, because I truly feel and see the difference in my hair. Especially when I colour it and use heat on it most days. I buy the salon products from the beauty supply shop where I get my skin and beauty products.

When I use hair products from the grocery store my hair feels drier and looks dull and I feel when its straightened it just doesn't look nice! When I was travelling over the last few months I wasn't able to spurge on hair products and I was just using anything and everything. Since I am home Iv been using Schwarzkopf Professional Products and the difference is huge, so many people ask me if I am wearing extensions or if I got a blow dry because it looks so healthy and shiny.

The products I use, and don't mind spending a little extra euro on are a good Shampoo & Mask with strengthening and hydrating ingredients , I only wash my hair twice a week so instead of using a conditioner, Ill use a mask to really nourish and protect my hair.

I bought the BC (Boncure) Time Restore hair products with Q10 & Amino Cell Rebuild.

There are many different types of hair products from the BC range, I choose the Time Restore purely because of containg the Q10 & Amino Cell Rebuild as these are both repairing, restructuring, rebuilding ingredients and thats what hair needs when its been damaged from heat & colour over the years.

Co-enzyme Q10 is a antioxidant that strengthens hair and promotes elasticity making hair more healthy and shiny.
Amino Acid Rebuild strengthens the inside of the hair cell. Making the hair stronger on the outside.

I bought these 2 in Hennessey Beauty & Hair Supplies in Pembroke St, Cork.

Shampoo €13.75 & Treatment Mask €12.75

Id recommend anyone who colours their hair or uses heat (curlers, straighteners) to try these two products. To help maintain strong, healthy hair.

The mask would suit dry damaged hair x1-2 week
Oily greasy hair x1 week
Shampoo can be used as many times as your hair desires.
