My hair has been somewhat damaged over the years. From the age of 16 I straightened the life out of it. I blame Avril Lavigne, I also blame her for letting me think wearing a tie with a vest top was a good idea...
It wasn't long after that I discovered that blondes do have more fun -and more split ends. Oh my poor hair! It became so brittle as I backcombed it, dyed it a different colour every fortnight, Sometimes curled it only to straighten it again right after for no reason what-so-ever. How did I ever I have so much time on my hands?! My hair has only just started to recover and that is down to a combination of velcro rollers, regular trims and some lovely oils and treatments to give my hair the much needed nourishment it deserves.
Once or twice a week I give my hair a deep conditioning treatment. I think a weekly treatment is needed for blonde hair, especially if heated products are used regularly. It really has helped the condition of my hair and it's the longest it's ever been. I thought I'd share a few of my favourites.

The paging of this just screams luxury. The pearly effect on the cream and brown design is lovely. The beauty doesn't stop there, the smell is incredible. It’s a nice creamy conditioner that's not too thick and doesn’t weigh your hair down like a lot can. When I've used this it really makes my hair feel amazing afterwards. I know I'm going to like a treatment when I feel it has worked right away. With this I could feel how soft my hair was from the moment I started rinsing it out. My hair was left glossy with no frizz and I dint need to use any heat to smooth it out which adds extra brownie points as anything that means I don't use heat on my hair means I will be damaging it less and it gives me one less thing to do each day!

Coconut oil is being raved about lately. It's super nourishing and anything this natural has to be good for you. It's such a great price as you get a really big tub for less than £2. Although this is the cheapest of the lot don't assume it's not going to do the job. I'm really pleased with this mask and it's great to fall back on when I'm saving the pennies. It's smooth consistency means it isn't too heavy and not only does it leave my hair really soft, it smells lovely too.
