The month of February has been the month of hair for me. I have basically been obsessed with all things hair related, from changing up my hair products to trying new products.
So expect a fair amount of hair related posts! One thing I'm quite consistent with is hair masks. I religiously use an intensive hair mask every Sunday. Last month I decided to stray from my ever favourite Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment (full review here) to something a little less eye-watering, price-wise! My hair is very very long and the ends need all the moisture they can get. I try to do oil treatments before I wash my hair a couple of time through the week, but it is a bit of a pain. Needless to say, it doesn;t get done as often as it should. So when I saw Mark Hill's MiracOILicious, the lazy girl inside me knew I needed these!
The Mark Hill MiracOILicious 2 Minute Intensive Treatment, £7.99 replaced my usual Sunday hair mask. Firstly, it smells lovely not too intense. The consistency is similar to most hair masks, quite a thick conditioner that you have to scoop out of the tub. I tend to apply from the mid'length of my hair to the ends and really massage my hair with my fingers ensuring all of the hairs are covered. Then I leave it on for 2 minutes as per the instruction. I wash off and towel dry my hair. Usually I try to let my hair air dry to limit heat damage. Afterwards my hair feels smooth, soft and I have a lot less flyaways so hair is much more manageable. I'd definitely recommend this if you have quite dry hair or damaged hair and don't want to spend too much. The hydration of my hair has improved with regular use and my hair looks shinier after use too.
When I do use a hairdryer and heat style my hair, I have added a new step and have seen a lot of difference. Meet Mark Hill MiracOILicious Moroccan Argan Oil - Light-weight Formulation, £9.99 (hello longest name ever!). I use one pump, warm the product between my palms, and run it through the mid-length to the ends. After I've dried my hair, I feel the difference in the smoothness and how shiny my hair looks. Even if I don't heat style my hair, if I apply this on my second day hair, my hair looks glossy without being weighed down or looking/feeling greasy. I can't stop touching my hair as it feels so soft! As you only need one pump, I imagine this bottle lasting me a while.
These two products have given my hair it's shine back, which is hard to retain for longer hair. The dryness leading to tangy hair and split ends – no more! I hadn't tried tried Mark Hill hair products before, but this range has made me want to try more of the ranges.
