My mop and I have never really got on. From the frightful experience as a child when I got a round brush caught in my hair (I mentioned that last night in the blogger chat) and was frog marched to the hairdressers to have it cut out to the more present indecision of whether to dye my hair brunette. When it comes to styling I'll hold my hands up and say that it is not my forte by any stretch of the imagination, therefore what little skill I do have is very much helped along by some of my favourite products at the moment.
Starting off with the Charles Wortington Texturising Spray this is a fantastic little product to use if you want to achieve a slightly tussled look, whereby this is created quite easily and lasts quite well throughout the day too. I really dislike having my hair flat on my head so this comes in really handy, especially on fresh hair days. Another product I quite like for providing a bit of volume is the Batiste Dry Shampoo which although as suggested the product is to help tackle greasy hair in-between washes I do find that it helps to provide a little bit of lift too.
A long term product of mine now is the Argania Liquid Gold Hair Oil* which is something that I purchased myself a while back where before it had a blue label on it, since then it has been repackaged. The team at Argania kindly sent me some of their products a little while ago now of which they are just as good as they once were. This oil smells incredible and works a treat leaving my hair silky soft without feeling weighed down. I like using a small amount of this when my hair is still wet, focusing on the ends primarily I work it to about half way where I ensure to avoid my roots.
Tools of the trade of course always involve a decent hair brush of which recently I have being using the new Air Motion Hair Brush*. A unique product designed in the UK this is a great hair brush no matter whether your hair is wet or dry. Claiming to reduce hair breakage by 95% and being suitable for all hair types this sounds like a good product to have for everyday use. Of course I cannot comment on it being suitable for all hair types as I only have my hair to compare it to yet it works well for me. It's also incredibly light weight too which was something I noticed when I started to use it.
Onto bobby pins I feel as though I would not be able to mention a hair product post without featuring them. Every day I use these for one reason or another, be it to help keep hair out of my face when having a wash in the morning or to keep loose ends in place. These are one of the most important items I use so naturally they have a habit of disappearing on me quite a lot; if there's one hair product I buy more than any other it is bobby pins.
