I like 2pac and lipstick and using the word 'lol' when I have nothing else to say. Lol.

Great tips, I pretty much do all of these things now and my hair is looking healthier for it.

But I LOVE a scaldingly hot shower... 🙁


I love them hot too! I've hear about this before so what i do is keep my head out of the hot water for most of my shower and just turn the tap to Antarctica-cold just before i get out and dunk just my head and face under. It wakes me up in the mornings as well!!


Mmm me too 🙂 Maybe just keep the scalding hot showers/baths to the odd occasion, and keep your hair out of the water-flow most of the time?


Me too! It's so hard to turn the cold in winter ha ha


I could probably use that beautiful sounding hair oil, Indie Lee.


Ooh that moisturising oil sounds divine!! 🙂
Intrigued by the shower head too - never really thought about how chemicals in water dull my hair!


The Elvive Extraordiny Oil is another good one 🙂 I use it every night after my shower when my hair is still wet and it dries smooth and shiny without any oiliness


I do most of these things already as well. I also like to do an overnight coconut oil treatment a couple of times a week (if I remember!). My hair is always so soft and shiny afterwards! 🙂
