Once again I've come with another post on favourite products of 2011 but this time focusing on hair products which I use most frequently and have made a difference to my hair in the past year.
In case you're wondering, I won't be doing a post on my favourite skincare products because my favourites really are just what was in my "Current Daily Skincare Routine" post. Click here to see.
1. 100% Pure Rosemary Oil
This is a great oil to use on your scalp as it stimulates growth. I use it mixed with castor oil, coconut oil and peppermint oil.
2. Fantasia ic Heat Protector Straightening Spray
To protect my hair and extensions from heat damage, I usually lightly spray this before straightening. It is aloe enriched and also makes your hair shiny after use.
3. Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion
This is a lightweight foaming lotion which I actually use before I wrap my hair to go to sleep. It keeps my hair in the desired style without being stiff.
4. Pure Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is very good for the hair as it moisturises and strengthens as well as acts as a great conditioner. I apply this liberally (with castor oil, rosemary and peppermint oil) and detangle my hair the night before I shampoo as it really does soften the hair well.
5. Hollywood Beauty Argan Oil From Morocco Smoothing Hair Creme
I'm in love with this product! It is a hair creme that contains argan oil which I'm sure you've all heard of. It smells beautiful and makes my virgin hair extensions so smooth, silky and gives it shine.
6. Pure Castor Oil
Castor oil is known for thickening the hair. I massage this into my scalp along my edges where my hair has broken to promote growth and thickness.
7. Garnier Fructis Style Brilliantine Shine Water-Based Wax
I love that this wax is water based as it doesn't leave my hair greasy like some other products may do. Click here for a full review on this product!
8. Hollywood Beauty Argan Oil From Morocco
I'm sure you've all come across the hype of argan oil on other blogs and maybe YouTube. This oil along with the smoothing creme are fantastic products. I use this on my virgin hair extensions and it makes the hair very glossy/shiny and healthy without looking greasy at all if you apply the right amount of product. I also use this on my natural hair before I blow dry it for the same finish. Works wonders for dry ends and I would recommend anyone to buy it regardless of your hair type.
9. 100% Pure Peppermint Oil
This is oil is beneficial if you suffer from an itchy scalp or dandruff as peppermint oil is known to be good for that. It is usually mixed with the other oils I own and then applied to my scalp.
10. Melaleuca Herbal Shampoo
Last but definitely not least, this herbal shampoo by Melaleuca works wonders. It is a fantastic shampoo that doesn't leave your hair stripped of its natural moisture. When I used this on my extensions, it made them so soft, shiny and silky that I actually could not believe it. I used to use Tresemme but I have abandoned their shampoo and conditioner after using this one. I found that with this shampoo, a conditioner wasn't even needed after because it acts as a conditioning shampoo!
