Top 5 Hair Products for Autumn/Winter

Wella Hydrate Finish – I tend to use a lot of conditioning products in the cooler months to help my hair battle against the dry winter air, and this is my favourite leave in conditioner of the moment. It’s lightweight but moisturising and I don’t feel like it leaves too much product residue in my hair. It also smells delicious.

Wella Flowing Form Smoothing Balm – I heat style my hair a lot more in the cold months of the year, and I’ve been using this in my hair prior to blow drying to help minimize frizz and to help retain any shape that I’m trying to get my hair to hold. It’s also not too heavy and doesn’t weigh down my already fine hair.

Carol’s Daughter Rosemary Mint Clarifying Shampoo/Conditioner – This is my favourite shampoo & conditioner duo at the moment. As I mentioned above, I tend to use more styling products in my hair in autumn/winter so these are perfect to use as the clarifying element helps to prevent too much product build up in my hair. Despite being sulfate free, the shampoo lathers up nicely without leaving my hair feeling too tangled, which is an added bonus.

O&M Seven Day Miracle Masque – I am absolutely loving this hair mask at the moment. I’ve been using it once or twice a week as a regular treatment in place of my normal conditioner and also every night when I condition on the ends of my hair. It smells absolutely amazing, as with all O&M hair products (yes, I realise that I mention this every single time I reference O&M products) and it leaves my hair feeling soft & silky after every use.

Sephora, Strawberrynet & Haus of Gloi Haul

So when I mentioned slipping slightly in Project 50 Pan, this is exactly what I meant. Having said that, I can easily justify most of the things that I’ve bought recently. Let’s see how I go.

The Carol’s Daughter Rosemary & Mint Clarifying Shampoo & Conditioner have been on my wishlist for what feels like forever, but in reality since I received sample sized packets of them both with a Sephora order. I held off from buying these for quite a while because I need shampoo & conditioner like I need a third elbow, but I saw them pop up on Strawberrynet & I jumped at the chance to buy them without having to pay a billion dollars to parcel-forward them from the US. I also ordered a mega sized bottle of Dermalogica Special Cleanse from Strawberrynet, because I am getting close to finishing the bottle I already have and it’s the facial cleanser I use 95% of the time (iron clad justification). I’m down to the last few drops of my beloved Givenchy Photo Perfexion Foundation and went into a mild state of panic when I realised that the back up I had ordered from Strawberrynet a month or so ago had never arrived (and the payment had been refunded back into my account without so much as an emailed notification but whatever). Thankfully Sephora finally had my shade back in stock, so I ordered a bottle alongside the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner to replace my close-to-being-completely-dry NYX Felt Tip Liner and also some Boscia blotting papers because a gal like me can never have too many blotting papers. So really the only completely unnecessary purchase here was the shampoo & conditioner combo, and I really wanted those so I’m not going to be too hard on myself. Now onto more mindless spending.

So the money that I mentioned being returned into my account earlier? This is where it went. I cannot justify these purchases in any way shape or form because I have enough vegan body products stored in my cupboard that I could probably turn to them as a food source in the event of an apocalypse (note: if I mention the impending apocalypse too much, let me know). So that’s it! My fall from grace well documented and now we’re ready to move forward. I’ve finished up some more big ticket P50P items so there will be a Pan update coming up in the next week or so.
