Recent Favourites: Hair Care Products

mane n tail detangler, possibly the best detangler I've tried plus leaves hair nicely conditioned without weighing down

I recently posted about my most repurchased beauty products which didn’t cover my haircare but I did cover some I still use in this old blog post. And I KNOW you want to know about that (right? you

I’ve started to grow my hair lately so at the moment it’s pretty long for me (it’s almost at my shoulders). Which brings me onto a bugbear of mine; short hair isn’t hair below the shoulders, THAT’S LONG HAIR, STOP IT. Anyway, I have had short hair (properly short hair, you can see it here or here if you fancy) for absolutely ages and I miss being able to put it up. I’ve been preparing a Pinterest board with lots of ideas I’m going to try, but probably fail at miserably. I need to learn some other styles because my hair is super thick and I also have lots and lots of it. This also means I need to find the right products to help keep it under control. There are a few things that I always buy and have done for years because I know they just work really well for my hair. Lately there are a couple of new additions to my hair care routine which I really love.

First up is Mane n Tail Detangler*. I first read about Mane n Tail on Forever Amber’s blog and I was confused as to why Amber was using hair products designed for horses on her hair. It turns out it’s so good us humans use it too. I was sent the Mane n Tail Detangler to try and I have to say I love it. Not only is it brilliant for spraying on the hair after washing to make combing and styling easier, it works a treat on my little boy’s hair making it a little bit less stressful coming to brushing it. Not only is it a brilliant detangler for all the family it also conditions and smooths the hair. Mane n Tail Detangler does all of this without leaving any residue on the hair and the big bottle lasts absolutely ages. A definite repurchase for me. (Superdrug currently have it for just over a fiver here).

well brilliance shampoo, amazing shampoo for coloured hair that won't strip colour.


My hairdresser at Medusa in Edinburgh (they’re amazing btw, highly recommended if you’re looking for a new hairdresser) gave me a couple of samples from the Wella Brilliance range and I LOVE them. The Wella Brilliance is designed for coloured hair and comes in two ranges: one for fine/normal hair and the other thick/coarse. I’ve used both and they are equally good. Wella Brilliance shampoo cleanses coloured hair without stripping and thanks to the addition of ingredients such as diamond dust (wooo) the hair is left super shiny and manageable. What’s also amazing is you can buy a ginormous bottle from Amazon for around £10 and that lasts me around 3 months washing every 2nd/3rd day. I do recommend getting the pump to make life easier as these bottles are heavy.


As well as these new additions I still use products from Tresemme Keratin range. This is a really brilliant budget/drugstore hair range. Tresemme Keratin smooths and conditions unruly hair and leaves a really nice shine. Another product I regularly repurchase is Phyto Botanical Straightening Balm. I think I’ve been using Phyto products for around 5 years maybe and they’re just amazing. They’re incredibly nourishing yet gentle on the hair, a bit more pricey but well worth it in my humble opinion. I still use Garnier Olia to colour my hair. I’m yet to find a better colouring product that suits me so well. Garnier Olia covers grey hair perfectly and leaves the hair shiny and healthy after use. I have changed my shade recently to some of the brown variations and they give a rich, deep brown that makes my hair super shiny.

    Yay! I LOVE the Mane n’Tail
    range – I’ve repurchased it so many times now! Had a break from it a couple of weeks ago, and couldn’t believe the difference in my hair: never again!
