My favourite hair products

I have dyed my hair to within an inch of it's life over the years. I used Sun In, had a perm, (two actually) and dyed it from blonde, to dark red, to dark plum and back blonde in the space of 2 weeks.  Needless to say, I murdered my hair that time and there was no saving it.  It was so bad after all that dyeing that I couldn't comb my hair when it was damp, because each strand of hair was like an elastic.  It would stretch and then spring back into shape, which was very weird.  Even my "hairdresser" didn't know what to do.  I use the "" quotes because he absolutely butchered my hair that day and ever since, I've had trust issues with hairdressers heheh  I have an amazing hairdresser now and no matter how expensive he is, I will never go to anyone else.

Anyway, enough of that.  Because of these dramas, I try really hard to take care of my hair, and love trying new products.  These three are my favourite right now, and have been for a few months really.
Pantene Aqua Light nourishing mist, L'Oreal Elvive Damaging Care Conditioning Repair Spray, Fekkai Marine Summer Beach Waves

First of all we have Pantene Aqua Light Lightweight Nourishing Mist.  The bottle says "Aqua Light Lightweight Nourishing Mist, with dual phase formulation, provides instant nourishment and detangles hair without weighing it down."  You shake it well before using it, to mix the top and bottom layers in the bottle and spray as needed.  I usually concentrate it on the ends of the hair and it does leave my hair feeling lovely and soft. 

Second is L'Oreal Elvive Damaging Care Conditioning Repair Spray.  The bottle says "The new Damage Care formula with Ceramide-Cement, a replica of hair's natural cement, targets damaged areas to help fill in cracks and seal the hair's cuticle.  Protected, the hair fibre becomes stronger and more resilient, with a smooth, shiny surface."  This is actually my first time reading the bottle properly, and cement? Really?!  Anyway, I love this stuff and it leaves my hair so shiny and soft.  Sometimes when I wash my hair, I don't condition it in the shower, I use this stuff instead and I L.O.V.E it.

Finally we have the one and only hair product (except shampoos and conditioners) that I have finished a bottle of and repurchased!  It is Frederick Fekkai's Marine Summer Hair Beach Waves.  The bottle says "Sexy tousled waves, anytime and anywhere.  Marine waters create surf-sexy texture, and sea kelp hydrates and blocks moisture loss.  UV shield helps prevent fading."  This stuff is AMAZINGGGGG if you want beachy waves without using a curling iron.  I use it after washing and drying my hair.  I spray a decent amount all over my hair, basically enough to dampen all of my hair.  I then either put my hair into a loose top knot, or a high bun and by the time I get to wherever I'm going, my hair is dry, and the product has had time to do it's job.  It leaves my hair so full and soft and everytime I use it, I get a lot of compliments on my hair.  Cannot recommend this stuff enough. 5 Stars.

I will continue my eternal search for new hair products that will make me happy and have lovely hair!! Any recommendations??
