Favourite hair and beauty products of 2012

During this last year I have altered my hair and beauty routines, experimenting with different products to find the ones that produce the best results. Below is a list of my favourites.

Skin Care

Garnier Pure deep clean cream wash; anti-impurities for sensitive skin

Garnier Pure long lasting shine control moisturiser with sebum control


 Hair Care

Crème of Nature (CoN) Argan Oil sulphate free moisture and shine shampoo

Crème of Nature Argan Oil intensive conditioning treatment


GHD Thermal Protector (before blow-drying)

Hawaiian Silky 14-in-1 Miracle Worker (after blow-drying)  – For the weekly shampoo

Crème of Nature Argan Oil strength & Shine Leave-in Conditioner – For twice daily hair moisturising

hair care

Coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil & jojoba oil (combined) – For sealing in the moisture

My hair has responded extremely well to daily moisturising first thing in the morning and last thing at night with the CoN Argan Oil leave-in conditioner after texlaxing, and shedding has been significantly reduced. I am stretching the relaxer and hair colouring to four months, which will be the end of January.

The length of my hair is still at my collar bone because I trimmed about one inch off the ends, but I am still aspiring to armpit length by next September! I am pleased with the new texture produced by texlaxing as it has body but is much easier to manage than when my hair was totally natural.

Now that I have found hair and beauty products that work well I will be sticking to them and monitoring progress every three months.
