The Haircare Series: Styling Products

I mentioned in previous posts that I am extremely lazy when it comes to my hair, and that extends to styling. Usually I just let it dry naturally and then run a bit of serum through it but there are occasions when effort is required, and that's when I break out the heat styling tools and the following products:

The Haircare Series: Styling Products

Percy & Reed Wonderbalm, £18 for 75ml: This was a magazine freebie a while back, and acts as a primer before all your other products. An interesting concept, but one that definitely works  my hair is always sleeker and softer when I layer up with this.

John Frieda Heat Defeat Protecting Spray, £5.89 for 150ml: I don't want my hair to fry, so heat protection is a must. I have to be honest, I haven't always been the best at remembering to use it, but it makes a difference. I may be lazy but I do want my hair to be as healthy as possible!

Bleach London Split Fix Serum, £6 for 50ml: The name is a little misleading, nothing except a quick trim is going to get rid of split ends, but don't let that put you off. This serum is a little runny, but it feels quite silky and you only need a little bit (too much and you stray into greaseball territory!) to get sleeker, shinier hair. It doesn't weigh my curls down, which is a bonus.

Percy & Reed Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish, £10 for 125ml: This was another magazine freebie, from years ago, and despite reaching for it every time I need a more polished look, I still have quite a lot of product left in the tube. It's a thick cream, so, again, less is more, and I tend to use it after I've straightened my hair to hold the style.

What are your favourite styling products? Have you tried any of these?
