Haircare Dilemmas

This is the current state of my hair.
At last it has grown to a length that I love, but cutting it all off three years ago and proceeding to dye it very blonde has wreaked havoc on my poor hair. I really need to get it trimmed, but I don't want to lose any of the length, so for now I am trying to give it as much moisture as I can until it grows a little longer.
I needed a new conditioner last week and decided to go for one from a childrens range, Tantrum. So far I love it: it's really creamy, smells great, and completely detangles my curly locks. Have any of you tried it? It's also free of parabens, and I figure that anything for childrens hair must be pretty gentle. Although I don't remember needing conditioner when I was a child!
I was using Organix Moroccan Argan Oil conditioner but although I liked the product I wasn't impressed with the packaging: after the first few uses it got really hard to squeeze the conditioner out, which led to me trying to balance on one foot while squeezing the bottle as hard as I could with both hands onto my knee so that I could scoop it back into my hands and onto my hair... it really shouldn't be this hard!
I also use the Toni and Guy Nourish Reconstruction Mask every once in a while and it seems to help a bit, even though I don't really believe that my hair CAN be reconstructed at this point!
The shampoo I use is a medicated one, Stieprox, and try as I might I can't wean myself off of it: my scalp gets so tight and dry without it.
So do any of you have any tips for undernourished hair?


  1. My hair is in a horrid state currently too - I haven't had it cut for over a year and now kinda dread going, plus hair dye and curling and straightening it doesn't help. So i'll be interested in seeing what people suggest and have a look into the ones you've suggested too. I have heard good things about products using coconut oil for damaged hair.

  2. I've recently started using the Tresemme naturals range and I find that absolutely lovely. Also, their split end repair is great. I leave it on over night and my hair is super soft in the morning.

  3. i swear by moroccon oil ! you look gorg! xO!

  4. I had the same problem as you but I started using some of the products garnier offers for damaged hair and they work wonders. Also thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog.
