Chloe’s Hair Care Essentials

C: I was looking through the blog today (I like to have a quick squiz through and re cap on what we have been posting lately) and realised that we have hardly done any haircare posts! Considering the amount of hair (on our heads, we aren’t just super hairy creatures) we have between us, thats really quite shocking. I’m no expert… but here are my hair care essentials, and a few tips I have learnt along the way.

Lets just make it clear first, that I have very thick, long hair and so if you have short fine hair… clearly these products/tips may not work for you (or they might, in which case let us know in comments below!). My first essential is clearly a tangle teezer. We reviewed this here if you fancy a look, but since buying this I haven’t looked back. I use it every single day (okay, I’m lying, I sometimes “forget” to brush my hair) and it has seriously reduced the fly aways I get, as I am no longer ripping out my hair when attempting to de-dreadlock it.

On to the products… I haven’t included a shampoo/conditioner, as I tend to change them every time I buy a new one. There’s always too many new ones out! Once I have washed my hair, I spray through a detangler to assist my tangle teezer. My favourite is here but I wanted to try out some others, and I have been enjoying using this Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance detangler so far. It just provides a little extra protection to your hair, and makes it even less likely to damage it whilst brushing.

I then like to apply my KMS California Curl Up Wave Foam, which I previously received in one of my Birchboxes and have since bought the full size version. This helps add a little texture but also control to my frizzy curly hair, as I dont like to straighten it often – burnt hair = not cool. This allows me to leave my hair to dry naturally, which results in soft (sometimes still crazy) curls.

Once my hair is dry I like to apply a hair oil to the ends, just because my hair is super long and therefore super old and in need of as much moisture as it can get. I love this Carino oil by Aldi. It costs about £3 and does the same job as the billion pound oils. What more could you want? (We reviewed this here).

Lastly, an essential for any busy person with lots of hair – dry shampoo! We reviewed/compared lots here, if you fancy a goosey. Perfect for second (or third) day hair, if you want to put up your hair or need some extra volume (/grease hiding power).

These products combined allow me to look after my hair, and create natural loose waves without the use of any heat! Perfect. What products do you guys use? Have you tried any of these? #twolittleowlsblog

Hair Oils: A Review/Comparison

C: So as promised here is todays post on the hair oils that we have recently tried out/tested for you all!

1. Avon Advance Techniques Morrocan Argan Oil
A: I LOVE this product, but I’ve already banged on about it loads in a review so click here to see it!

C: I liked this oil, it made my hair soft, reduced frizz and made it generally more manageable. For such a cheap price I would definitely recommend but unfortunately I didn’t like the smell. I can’t even describe it, I just prefer sweet smells and this is more fresh/citrus with a strange undertone. 

2. Hair Oil by Beauty Protector
A: This was a sample we both recieved in our Birchboxes. I’m not totally sold on it to be honest. Unlike the Avon oil, it left my hair feeling greasy plus it didn’t smell very nice!

C: I liked the smell of this… apparently me and Annie have opposite smell tastes. If that makes sense. I didn’t like this the first time I tried it, but I stuck with it and I can definitely see a difference in the overall condition of my hair. I see this as more of a leave in conditioner than the usual advantages you look for in a hair oil. It didn’t reduce frizz/fly aways but my hair feels stronger and more conditioned, so if that is what you are looking for then I would recommend! This is available on the Birchbox website (and the leave in detangler this brand do is also amazing!)

3. Morrocan Oil
A: This is the most expensive hair oil I’ve used and to be honest, I didn’t find a lot of differences between this and the Avon oil (I know, I know I’m biased – but it really is that good!!)

C: This is my favourite. The scent, the texture, everything. It makes my hair feel so soft and manageable, reduces frizz and fly aways. True love and worth every penny in my opinion. 

4. Miracle Oil by Carino (Aldi)
A: I was pretty happy with this product, it’s cheap and cheerful – does the job and it makes my hair feel super soft with lots of shine!I

C: for £3.50 I have no complaints with this product. I would even say it was comparable to Moroccan Oil’s amazingness. It gives soft and shiny hair that isn’t weighed down/greasy and reduces frizz. What more could you want from such a bargain!
