The Haircare Series: Products I'd Love to Try

In the final installment of my Haircare Series, I thought I'd show you the products I'd like to try at some point. Unlike with skincare, I tend to be a little more experimental with the hair products I use, mainly because it's rare for me to find something that really works. Generally, I have three rules when it comes to products:

  • They have to soothe my scalp, or at least not irritate it
  • They have to cleanse/style my roots without making them greasy (shampoos/volumising products)
  • They have to moisturise the ends of my hair, without weighing them down

I don't ask for much, do I?

Without further ado, here's a list of the things I'd love to try:

The Haircare Series | Products I'd Love to Try

(Malin + Goetz) Peppermint Shampoo, $36 (approx. £21.72) for 473ml: I love the idea of tingly peppermint on my scalp, I think it's probably really refreshing and soothing. It's said to balance the hair and scalp, and leave them both soft and conditioned.  

Philip Kingsley Take Comfort Try Me Kit, £5 for 3 20ml tubes (reduced to £4 at time of writing): I love Philip Kingsley's Scalp Toner for when I need an extra something, and the Elasticizer works wonders when my hair needs a bit more nourishment, so I really want to try more from the range. Obviously I gravitated towards the Flaky/Itchy Scalp Shampoo, but the set also includes a Moisture Balancing Conditioner and an Elasticizer. I think it's great that you can try these products before deciding whether you want the full size versions, and if you do decide to part with your cash there's a £5 voucher in the box.

Percy & Reed Lovingly Light Foaming Treatment Mask, £20 for 150ml: A mask designed especially for fine hair like mine, this comes in mousse form, which is something I've never come across before. It's said to nourish, moisturise, and add volume, without weighing hair down. Sounds perfect!

John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Simply Shine Volumising Mousse, £5.19 for 200ml: I have curly hair, but it only starts to curl once it reaches my earlobes, so the roots can often look a little flat. I've never really used mousse before, but I know I want something that'll give my hair a bit more oomph and make it look more healthy, without weighing it down.

What hair products would you love to try? Have you used any of these before? Let me know!
