In this cold and windy weather my hair gets especially frizzy! Therefore it is essential that I always have an anti frizz product on hand. This time I decide to try something new so I picked up the Superdrug Style Expertise Anti Frizz Serum.
It’s really affordable priced at just £2.99. The texture is a thick gel like consistency, so this means that a little will go a long way and it also has a nice refreshing scent which is another plus point. I applied a small sized amount onto my palms ( I pressed the serum dispensing pump just once) then while my hair was damp, I applied the product to the mid length to the ends of my hair. I wouldn’t add it to roots as the thickness of the serum may weight it down. I did however, apply a little to the side of my hair near my forehead where I tend to get a lot of baby hairs and flyaways. My hair remained shiny and smoother throughout the day and my hair smelt nice and fresh. This is a fantastic anti frizz product and will keep frizz prone hair sleek and tamed. I highly recommend it!

In today’s post I want to talk about a hair product I bought a while back. It’s from VO5, which is a hair brand I love and it is called Nourish My Shine Miracle Mist. I really love it but for some reason it is hard to find in store these days, but fortunately it is available online on Amazon and in some Supermarkets so I’ll add links at the end of this post.
After blow drying and hair straightening, all the heat applied to my hair left it looking quite dry. I decided to look for a product that would add shine, however I wanted a spray since I did not want my hair to feel weighed down like serums tend to do sometimes. This miracle mist looked good since it is a leave in conditioning spray and contains 5 essential oils. The first thing I noticed when I applied it to my hair was the smell. It’s a lovely, sweet coconut scent that made my hair feel fresh. Usually hair products smell quite strong like a chemical smell so this was a lovely surprise. The bottle says it includes added heat protection so you can use it on wet or dry hair. Personally however, I still prefer to use a heat defence spray seperately that’s designed specifically for that purpose as I feel other heat defence sprays would be more effective than this at preventing heat damage.
Despite the oils in the product, the spray feels really light and left my hair feeling smooth and looking frizz free. It left a mild shine on my hair and it dried quickly without weighing my hair down. My hair no longer looked dry and looked healthier with a quick spritz of this. Sometimes I just spray it on my hair purely because I love the smell of it so much!

Whenever I wash my hair and complete my styling, I am always left with frizz which ruins my look. I’ve always been a fan of Elnett so I was pleased to find they had a hair spray that helps control frizz called L’Oréal Paris Elnett So Sleek Hairspray.
The reason I adore Elnett is that while other strong hold hairsprays leave you with a hard, crisp texture on your hair, Elnett provides you with great hold while still leaving a smooth and silky finish. This particular spray has another plus point which is that it’s lightly rose scented so my hair smells lovely all day. It’s such a light spray that no matter how much you spray, with just a stroke of a brush it disappears while still taming frizz prone areas. I seperate sections of my hair and spray the So Sleek hairspray directly onto roots (at a 30cm distance as recommended) to give me some volume. The product does not weigh down my hair at all and just as it says, I’m left with a sleek look with no flyaways. It’s ideal for hair up style like a high ponytail or loose wave look. I only use the spray after using heated styling tools as a Finishing Hairspray but Elnett also has a heat defence range that can be used prior to using heated styling tools. I highly recommended this hairspray it’s my favourite!
