Best Of Beauty | Hair Heroes

Following on from last week's Best of Beauty | Skincare, you can read all about beauty bloggers favourite haircare products this week via Twitter using the #BOBBlogChallenge. I really enjoyed reading everyones favourites last week and have most definitely taken a few down for my own "to-buy" list so I'm sure today's posts will be no different. This was actually a toughie for me as I have been struggling lately to find Holy Grail haircare. If I could I would buy nothing but Kerastase, I love the stuff. Unfortunately, I'm currently on a self-imposed spending ban so I'm using up what I have left and also trialing some new products that I don't want to mention here until I've given them a full review. So basically, I just went into my bathroom and picked out what I either have or will repurchase and of course, my trusty styling tools.


1) Joico K-Pak Deep Pentrating Reconstructor for Damaged Hair.
That's quite the mouthful, eh? I've been using this mask for a couple of years now, the hairdressers I used to go to in Limerick use Joico products and I found they just worked really well for my hair. I especially love this mask though because it's left on for only five minutes and does wonders for my poor, bedraggled hair. Oddly enough, it smells a bit like you mashed up a banana and added some coconut milk, which I find pleasant but may not be everyones cup of tea.

2) John Frieda Frizz-Ease Firm Hold Hairspray
I've never actually had "frizzy" hair as such but when I was given this to try at a blogging event, I said I'd give it a go as I'm a big fan of John Frieda products. Luckily, this has worked well for me as it's just a very good hairspray. It has good hold without leaving the hair hard or sticky and it's a decent price for the amount of product you get too.

3) Batiste Dry Shampoo
I've used all the variations of this (I HATED the one for blonde hair though, left big yellow patches in my hair..yuck) and it really is one that I couldn't be without. When I don't have time to wash my hair or I want to give a bit of life to a blow dry on day 2 or even to give a bit of extra volume to freshly washed locks, this is what I turn to.

4) Tangle Teezer
This little guy has divided opinion on the blogosphere but I love mine! The whole idea is that it combs through wet hair with ease, removing tangles or knots quickly without causing hair loss, pain or the need to hack away at your poor hair.

photo taken when I first got it, it's no longer in its box!
5) GHD Eclipse
I won this in a beaut.ie giveaway last year and have used it regularly since. Again, my hair is naturally straight so I use this to either perfect a style or else to get curls quickly and with minimal fuss. Yes, this heats to 185 degrees Celsius but it styles your hair quicker because of that heat so your hair is exposed for less time and is less likely to be damaged.

I could also have added in the Kerastase hair oil that I spoke about HERE and the little Clairol Colorseal Glosses that I blogged about HERE but I unfortunately have none left at the moment to pop into the photo! Let me know in the comments if you use any of these or what your own personal Hair heroes are!

  1. I really meant to post predictions before these posts went up. I knew Batiste and GHD would feature heavily. You've got both! Now, who has a Babyliss Big Hair? Great choices.

  6. I'd be lost without my tangle teezer as well, especially when I had my extensions in. And I love that Joico stuff too :-)

  8. I don't get the tangle teaser. But my hair is thick and doesn't really knot... so maybe I am just lucky?!?!

    1. Ah see my hair is quite thin and would tangle easily enough so it's kind of a must have for me!

  9. Great post! Love the tangle teezer too! I need to get a decent hair straightener, mine is about a 100000 years old! The GHD one looks amazing! x

  11. Great post! I've never tried any of these, I use the John Frieda Luxurious Volume dry shampoo. Batiste gets a lot of great reviews, definitely trying it once I've used up my John Frieda dry shampoo.

  12. Haven’t tried any of these, bar my trusty GHD!

  13. You're a very lucky girl to get a free GHD in a giveaway. I got mine as a Christmas present some 3 years ago and I love it. I don't use it much as my hair is very fine and easily breaks but I still love it when I do. The John Frieda products don't work for me, though.

  14. I've featured the Tangle Teezer, Batiste Dry Shampoo and my GHDs too! The John Frieda Frizz Ease brand is great too! :) x

  16. That mask sounds fab - and good enough to eat!

  17. I can't wait til my hair is long again and I can use hair care stuff! It seems like a waste on my tiny mop of hair at the moment. The mask sounds great!
