all about my hair

So I’ve actually included proper photos of me in a blog post so this is quite a ‘big’ thing for me – I’m literally the most confident, unconfident person you’ll ever meet but hopefully with time I will be able to post full outfit posts! A fun post to write is one all about my hair, I have short hair normally but last week I decided that I needed a slight change and I went even shorter! It’s only about 2-3 inches but I can really tell a difference and I really like it! (I also have new glasses and they’re actually fab).

I just blummin’ love short hair. It’s so easy to work with and despite vouching I would never have short hair when I grew it out I’m super happy that I now have it shorter. The one thing that just makes having short hair worth while? You don’t have to brush it at all (trust me I am very happy about that).

I also wanted to mention my shampoo (here comes an essay about how much I love it). I never really see any reviews of people’s favourite shampoo; I admit it is a bit of an odd post to write, but I love to have a browse of ‘wonder shampoos’ that people have found. Up until around August last year my hair felt frizzy and really quite dry. It’s thick so can be quite obvious when it isn’t in best condition and I really needed a shampoo that gave my hair a boost that it definitely needed.

That shampoo came in the form of the OGX Coconut Milk shampoo – I needed a travel size shampoo and conditioner for going on holiday and after the whole ‘coconut oil’ craze I thought I might as well try a shampoo with coconut in it to see if it made a difference! Whilst I’m skeptical coconut milk has anything to do with how great my hair feels, this is an amazing shampoo.
For starters it is sulphate free, an ingredient I have recently found out that can be particularly drying for your hair and can make the hair brittle and prone to breakage. A downside to sulphate free products are that they don’t lather up as much but I can’t see this with the coconut milk shampoo! I absolutely love the fragrance and it feels really nice to apply to the hair.

After using it for quite a while, I no longer have an irritated scalp like I used to and I also am not still on the look out for a wonder shampoo. for those who have particularly dry hair I would probably recommend a more hydrating shampoo as this wasn’t overly hydrating – perfect for my hair. Priced at £6.99 it is slightly pricier than other drugstore shampoos however it lasts me a long time (2 and a half to 3 months per full sized bottle) and I really think it is worth it.

I have read some reviews that say the OGX shampoo has left their hair feeling dry (as well as their scalp) however I really disagree – my hair hasn’t been in better condition since using this shampoo. It smells amazing, feels amazing and I would totally recommend if you want a hydrating, sulphate free shampoo.

I hope you enjoyed reading and I would love to know your current shampoo! Do you own or have you owned any OGX shampoos before? (Also do you have any miracle hair care products?)

    Great post, I definitely want to try out the shampoos as I've always seen them but never known if they're worth it. Love!

    The coconut one doesn't actually have a lasting scent on my hair but the initial smell is gorgeous! x

    I;m still not sure if my shampoo is sulphate free or not but after reading this it's definitely something I'm going to investigate further as my scalp can sometimes get quite irritated!

    I love the ogx products! I've used the morrocan oil shampoo and conditioner (it was some kind of oil but a while ago so I forget 😂) and I loved it! I haven't bought it since though, I always feel bad spending so much on hair products as they literally go down the drain 😂 skincare is my favourite thing to splurge on!

    I've recently converted to the short hair club and I have to say I totally love it. It's so much easier to work with and doesn't take a ridiculous amount of time to dry! It's so nice to make a change every now and then. I really struggle with finding a decent shampoo that doesn't leave my hair feeling tacky or that makes it go greasy really quickly, I have yet to find my wonder shampoo, might have to give this one a go!

    Haha definitely, I hope you like the shampoo if you try it as it never makes my hair feel tacky and I don't need to wash it often!

    Thank you! It can be annoying when they don't cut it short enough but at least they didn't cut it too short because then you can't do anything about it! xx

    I love short hair but not on me: a few years ago, I had a blond tie and dye and I had to cut my hair to take off it. I have straight hair so I didn't really like it. But this haircut makes you so cute! x

    Your hair is so lovely, I'm thinking of getting my really long hair cut into a long bob so eeeep wish me luck! Hopefully after that I won't spend an hour drying my hair.

    lots of love, Jane (new follower)
