The Best Of Beauty Challenge: Hair Heroes


Yet again theres like 15 minutes until 7pm and here I am again frantically typing away at the aul computer. (As you can see by the crappy phone pictures I can't find my camera. Little fecker knows I'm in a hurry!) Some of us (me) just never learn huh? This is week 2 of the lovely Samantha from All The Buzz's bloggers challenge. If you haven't seen week one its here and explains it all! Now lets get crackin' that clock wont stop for me!

I didn't even need to pause to think about this weeks topic of hair heroes, they are so good they Immediately come to mind. I'm a wash and go kind of girl, leaving the mousses, sprays and goop for the pros. Me, I'm a big lover of good smelling shampoo and wonder working conditioner.


Aussie Conditioner:
Yes, I literally mean all Aussie conditioners. Oh mammy that is my idea of pure heaven. I bang on about it a lot over here.  I love their coloured one at the moment, but give me a leave in mask, a quick 3 minute and rinse, even a nice spray in, leave in type. They make your hair feel like silk and the smell. Ugh, the smell! Its all too good to be true, but it honestly is. My hair regularly gets brushed to an inch of its life, split ends everywhere like its the next big fashion statement. It has to deal with a blast of the harsh hair dryer and yet, its soft and not too bad - if I do say so myself. Aussie ore on offer in Boots right now, 3 for €13. Promise me you'll leave me some too?

Batiste:
I'll be shocked if no one has this in their hero lists, its the only thing that can make a bad day a little better. I like batiste the way I like my arms, they do a good job and I couldn't live/do much without them. Need I say more? Oh well, if you insist! They smell gorgeous, make your hair look more socially acceptable (!) come in a variety of scents and for each hair colour. Sigh, its true love.


Hair Ties:
I know it sounds a bit stupid but you can never have enough of a good thing and those hair ties that don't have little pieces of metal holding them together are my go-to kind of things! You can get a big bunch again in Boots for less then €2.40 ish in lots of colours. Lovely!

Really thats it from me, I have yet to find the perfect shampoo, I'm ashamed to say. But really if it looks like it will lather in my hair, I will use it. (dog shampoo included, but that was a once off, didn't read the label kind of experience. I can report that my friends dogs are the most pampered girls out there!) I'm a little in love with my Denman brush, but thats only because I have had the misfortune to use a tangle teaser. Oh well! See you lovely people next week! You can follow the fun on Twitter with the hashtag #BOBBlogChallenge.

  15. Coconut oil is the best. Okay, so my hair's not shiny with it after I wash it out, but it's ridiculously soft.
