Dove Nourishing Oil Care Leave-in Conditioning & Care Spray - This is a dual forumla spray which you have to shake to combine the elements, seen in the photos. It can be applied on wet and dry hair so I use it after washing and during the week for extra nourishment. I bought this when it was on sale at Boots for something ridiculously cheap like £1.50. On wet hair I spray this all over my hair, including the roots, and then follow up with an oil on the ends. On dry hair I tend to just stick to the lengths and ends. This makes my hair easier to brush and leaves it feeling nice and soft.

L'Oreal Triple Resist 60 Second Saviour Intensive Conditioner - I hadn't seen this before when I was in Asda the other week and since it was discounted for being a new product I decided to pick it up. The 60 second part it was intrigued me as I hate standing around the bathroom with wet hair and waiting for 3 minutes for the conditioner to work. I don't use this every week as I'm sure it's just full of silicone which is what makes your hair feel soft but I use it about once a month. It works well but I wasn't as impressed with it as I hoped to be . I only wash my hair once a week so for anyone who washes there hair about 3 times a week, it's their equivalent of once a week.

Charles Worthington Salon At Home Secrets Collection Moisture Seal Intense Rescue Melting Balm - What is it with brands creating extremely long names for products?! The first thing I noticed about this product is the scent - it smells divine! In the tub it's solid but melts instantly once on the hands and applied to hair. It's a pre-shampoo treatment which you apply to dry hair, leave on for 20 minutes, and wash off normally. It leaves your hair feeling amazing and like you've just had it cut at the hair dressers. It's a bit more expensive for a "drugstore" product but for me it's definitely worth £17.

Dove Nourishing Oil Care Regenerating Mask - This is another Dove product I bought from Boots for about £1.50 as well, such a bargain. It smells exactly like the leave-in conditioner which I love. It's a very thick mask which you apply after shampooing and leave on for 3-5 minutes. It contains argan oil and is very nourishing for the hair. It doesn't leave the hair feeling quite as soft as the Charles Worthington does but for a fraction of the price, it's one I reach for on a more regular basis.

TRESemme Restructuring Deep Conditioning Treatment Mask - This tub is massive! It also costs about £3.30 so is another bargain, can you see a theme here? This has the standard Tresemme scent which I don't hate but it's not nice like the others. This is another mask that works wonders for the hair and leaves it feeling silky soft. I only need to use a tiny amount of this and apply it to the ends, leave it on for 5 minutes.

  2. I quite like Tresemme, one of the few easily accessible brands where 'moisture' actually means 'moisture' instead of 'sweet F all' for my super curly hair! So I think I'll try the deep conditioner :)
