3 Hair Products I'm Loving

LEE STAFFORD COCO LOCO HEAT PROTECTION MIST, UMBERTO GIANNINI WEATHER PROOF CURLS, REVIEW, LEE STAFFORD AIR (OR BLAST) DRY FOAM

When it comes to hair care, it's safe to say that my knowledge and skills are probably worse than even my skincare knowledge. It's limited and it's not the best, but in recent months I've been looking for new products to give my hair a boost - I'm looking for anti-frizz products and things that'll bring back the natural curl in my hair. It's a hassle to put heat on everyday to bring back the curls I once had and I've a wishlist of products that I'm really excited to try out. 

For now, these are the staple products that I'm loving in my hair regime.

LEE STAFFORD COCO LOCO HEAT PROTECTION MIST

This heat protection spray smells delightful and it quickly helps to tame any static in my hair. It's a fine, gentle mist and it's easy to spray all over. As I mentioned, I find this helps with any hair static I might have, and since I use heat on a near-daily basis, it's good to know that my hair is protected.

UMBERTO GIANNINI WEATHER PROOF CURLS

I was looking for something to help my curls stay in place and help de-frizz them when I spotted this whole range of curl products in Boots. I actually wanted to try a few, but on my limited funds I decided to give this one a shot. It's lotion kind of product that I run through my hair and scrunch curls up with, and it seems to soothe away any major frizz whilst helping to keep my curls locked and defined. It smells good and doesn't add any weird textures or finishes to my hair!

I'm actually eager to try the thickening products from this brand, too, as my hair can lean towards the fine end of the spectrum.

LEE STAFFORD AIR (OR BLAST) DRY FOAM

I'm absolutely obsessed with this stuff! I don't generally leave my hair to dry naturally because I don't really like having damp hair whilst sitting around the house etc, so I use this in conjunction with my hairdryer and I'm super impressed. At the moment I don't have a diffuser, so I tend to not have a nozzle on the hairdryer and just scrunch up and mold my hair as I go. This stuff smells great and doesn't give my hair any crunchy or greasy textures which I absolutely loathe, nor does it make my hair knotted. This helps to bring back my natural hair texture that I very rarely see these days, showing off my curls and waves again. It also gives a bit of volume as I rub this into the roots before drying my hair upside down. All it takes is a few pumps through the lengths of my hair and I've seen a huge difference since using it. Sadly the texture does tend to simply turn frizzy when I brush my hair, but I wake up in the morning with far more natural curls than I've had in a long time. I reckon it's helping my curls stay in place, too.

Do you have any cruelty-free curl-defining products you could recommend me?
