How I maintain my balayage


Superdrug Coconut Oil - £2.49
Bleach London Silver Shampoo - £6.50
John Frieda Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray - £6.99
Charles Worthington Colour Revive Violet Toning Tinted Colour Mousse - £8.00
OGX Moroccan Argan Dry Oil - £6.99

Regular visits to the hair dressers can be costly but I have the perfect, purse friendly routine for keeping my hair colour vibrant and long lasting.

With my hair bleached, it's prone to becoming dry and brittle and so I often choose to use coconut oil as an overnight treatment to give my locks smooth hydration and to reduce frizz. Along with my regular shampoo and conditioner I also use a toning shampoo to tackle those annoying brassy tones. On towel dry hair I then apply a lightening spray to revive my hair when it starts to appear a little dull. To ensure brassiness is at bay, I comb a toning mousse through damp hair and then style as normal. Finally to finish I spritz a dry oil onto the end of my hair to lock in moisture and give a sleek shine,

Eylure Brow Wand Duo

Eylure Brow Wand Duo - £6.50

I probably spend most time on my brows when it comes to putting my face on daily, it's taken years for me to master shaping them and they're finally something to be proud of (not to say they are perfect). Recently I decided to ditch my worn out brow pencil spoolie, which had seen better days, for a new grooming tool and so I purchased the Eylure Brow Wand Duo available at Boots.

This double ended genius helps to tame my brows with absolute precision. I begin my combing through the hairs with the spoolie in an upward motion to separate each strand. I then take the angled brush and apply a brow shadow to fill in any sparse areas. I've seen such an improvement in the appearance of my brows and I can't recommend this product enough!
