Smooth, Silky, Shiny Hair♥*

One thing I know for sure is that I like my hair to be smooth, silky and shiny looking. I'm always on the lookout for products, especially shampoo, which claim to make your hair shiny. I've recently been trying out the Lee Stafford "Oily Roots Dry Ends" collection*, and using some tricks, I found my hair has been looking a lot more shiny.

Firstly, you got to wash your hair if you want clean hair, never mind shiny! I've found the Lee Stafford "Oily Roots Dry Ends" shampoo* cleanses my hair really well as it lathers up great, even with only a small amount! It leaves my hair feeling extremely fresh and clean. Oh, and not to mention that it smells wonderful!

To make my hair smooth, I use the Lee Stafford "Oily Roots Dry Ends" conditioner*. I only use this on the ends of my hair, so about half way from the roots of my hair, as I feel the ends need conditioned more than the roots. I apply it and leave it on my hair for about two to three minutes, then rinse it all out.

Before I leave the shower, the trick is to turn the water cold, but not freezing cold that you will scream! Personally, I like it quite cold, and I run the water on my head for about thirty seconds. This "closes the pores". It's got the same job as a moisturiser has for skincare.

I then blow dry it with my hairdryer. I dry about 90% of my hair. I use the warm heat to dry my hair, and before turning the hairdryer off, I give it a blast with the cold heat, as I like to cool my hair and I find this gives a little volume (especially if you blast the cold heat on your hair when your head is upside down!)

It's a good idea not to over-wash your hair, so best not to wash it everyday! On my second-day hair, it's sometimes not looking it's total best. I like to use Lee Stafford "Original Dry Shampoo"*, as it gets rid of any visible oils and gives some volume too. By using this on the roots, it keeps my hair looking as good as ever!

What's your tricks for smooth, silky, shiny hair?

  8. Loved this post! I've got loads of Lee Stafford products and I swear by them! I haven't tried this stuff though! My hair is going through a bit of a dull stage at the moment so maybe this will help give it some shine! x

    1. They're honestly amazing! Well all the best if you get these products, I hope they work! Might I also add, if you're hair is looking dull like you said, you should try out their Argan Oil range, I did a review on some products if you're interested! x
