Basically I looked a bit like Wurzel Gummidge so I put on my thinking cap to come up with some quick fixes for my hair problems:
1. SCOTT CORNWALL COLOUR RESTORE IN CHROME* - £12.99
I was a bit apprehensive about using an at home toner as my Mum usually colours my hair for me (she's a hairdresser) but turns out I had nothing to worry about. The Scott Cornwall toner is cruelty free (big tick) and promises to create metallic tones to light blonde or platinum hair and it definitely delivers. My hair can sometimes go greeny blue with silver toners as it's really porous but luckily I had no problem with this at all. There's no nasty artificial smell and it leaves your hair feeling super soft - You wouldn't even know you'd had a colour treatment. My hair's definitely looking a lot perkier after using this stuff and there's enough left over for a second application in the future.
Noughty Haircare first caught my eye when I was browsing the Superdrug website as the packaging is a beautiful pink shade that really grabs your attention. So when the guys at Noughty offered to send me a sample I pretty much snapped their hand off. The leave in conditioner is 97% natural, free of any nasties and is packed with wonderful ingredients like argan oil, shea butter and sweet almond. I've never used a leave in conditioner before and I worried that this was going to make my hair greasy but it didn't. Instead it left it feeling smooth, shiny and the ends no longer feel like rats tails or like they're about to snap off. Plus it smells delicious.
With the colour refreshed and the ends all soft and shiny the only problem left to solve was the inch of regrowth that I had going on. Bleaching them takes time (time that I did not have) so the only way to solve it was too whack on some dry shampoo to soften the harshness of the root to end colour contrast then pull on a beanie hat. This one is from Missguided, only cost a tenner (although I got it in the 50% off sale) AND it's ridiculously cute. What more could you want to hide your hair woes?
How do you disguise a bad hair day?
* I was gifted the colour restore and the leave in conditioner in return for a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Promise.
