Hair Care Routine

I never usually talk about my hair, but since I've been featuring a few in my past favourites, I figured I should at least share with you some of the products I use! Just for background, I have quite dry, thick hair that likes frizzing up almost all the time, so I try to find products that would help address these. I also hate styling my hair (because its too hot for irons and I never have time -_-) so I usually just want it to be straight without the need of a blowdrier or iron. Its very lazy, and a huge contrast to how I do my make-up haha!




Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Argan Oil Sulfate Free Shampoo

This is the most recent one I got out of everything. I rotate shampoos a lot because my hair gets used to them if I use it for long periods of time. I really like this because it doesn't make my hair feel squeaky clean right after, but definitely clean enough that it doesn't feel oily or grimy. It also leaves my hair feeling soft, which I've never gotten from any of my shampoos before. This also helps in keeping my hair clean for at least 2 days, which is an unusual feat for me. Plus, its sulfate-free!


OGX Scalp Therapy Australian Tea Tree Conditioner

I talked about this in my previous favourites post. I love the cooling effect on the scalp because of the tea tree! It also does wonders in conditioning my hair and taking away most of the frizz, making my hair really easy to brush through and go in the morning. Highly recommend this and others from the OGX line!


Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle Total Damage Care 10 Conditioner

I snagged this from my Mom's bathroom, wanting to rotate conditioners, and was genuinely surprised at how well it worked! Usually Pantene products wreak more havoc than good on my hair and scalp, but this one worked so well at making my hair smooth and soft without waiting in the shower too long. Really great option in case you can't find the OGX one!


Nature Republic Argan Essential Deep Care Hair Pack

I don't use hair masks that often, mainly because they always go missing in my house! When I do remember, I use this because its not overly greasy or oily that it leaves some product in my hair no matter how hard I try to wash it off. The softness and smoothness isn't as long lasting as I would prefer, but it does the job. It smells really nice, too!


Nature Republic Argan Essential Deep Care Hair Essence

I've repurchased several bottles of this and I really like it! Its not concentrated Argan Oil, so too much won't leave your hair really gross and oily. I put this on either before or after I blowdry (I literally just blowdry I don't style XD) and the next morning, my hair is much smoother and straighter than it was prior. I alternate this with the next product, or when I remember to use it. 


Argan Oil Intensive Hydrating Hair Treatment

My aunt got this for me in Ireland and it is much more concentrated than the previous product. Its so concentrated that I can never figure out the perfect amount! I wish it came with a dropper so I can better estimate how much I need, but when I do get the right amount, it really makes a difference! The amount of frizz in my hair reduces to almost zero, and I almost achieve wash and wear hair. This works best right after I finish blowdrying, as the heat in my hair makes it easier to absorb.


And that's it for me! If you have any more questions or comments, feel free to leave some down below, especially if you've tried some of these before, or if you have any recommendations!

  2. My mom and her sisters keep giant bottles of Argan oil in all the houses (even the HK flat) XD I use it on my hair when I forget to bring mousse, but we really like using it as a body oil~

    1. It is! I wish mine had a thinner consistency though because I can't imagine using this on my face!
