How To Save Dry and Damaged Bleached Hair Pint Sized Soph

So basically I have discovered a £3 miracle product that your bleach-damaged hair needs, right now. 

It’s not a surprise to anyone who knows me that I love to experiment with my hair. Ever since the age of 14 I’ve been dying my own hair. 

I rarely go to the salon, I mean, I’ve got relatively long and thick hair and for a simple cut + colour I can pay anything from £80 - being a broke student just doesn’t stretch that far. The few times I have stepped into a salon, I've often left disappointed or haven't achieved what I wanted. Apart from with my hairdresser Emma, at Bliss in Loughborough - she's an angel sent from above. 

I’ve pretty much been every colour under the sun, from red to brunette to my current ombre grey. I'm so restless with my hair, and there's always something I want to try. I tend to just watch Youtube videos for techniques, and the odd review if I fancy trying a new product. I wouldn’t say I’m too precious with my hair, as it grows back pretty quickly. 

I am a box dye fiend, and I'm always convinced that I can recreate looks at home, sometimes they're terrible, of course I'm not an expert.

So for a person who dyes their hair every other month pretty much (sometimes more) I know, I’m terrible, I’ve been through my fair share of hair products. From salon professional brands, to what you can find in Superdrug or Amazon. I’m always on the hunt for something that’s going to keep my hair the healthiest it can be.

A few of my personal favourite products for my hair have been the Moroccan Oil in Light, Oslo Wonder 10 (which you can get from Amazon for like £10 and it's honestly unreal, and more recently the Aussie 3-Step Oil.

All of those products have helped me retain some sort of normality, but during the winter my hair has become increasingly dry and brittle. A few days ago, I popped into Superdurg to find their own brand coconut oil. 

LONG STORY SHORT, I’ve found a miracle product and yep, it’s under 3 fricking quid. 

Basically the Superdrug coconut oil is bae. I basically chuck some in a little bit, heat it in the microwave for a minute and bang it all over, being very generous. You can either leave this for a few hours, or sleep the whole night with it in. Simply wash the product out with shampoo - you MUST shampoo else you’ll never get the greasy devil outta ya locks. 

Apply heat protection, blow dry to your heart’s content et voila. You’ll be left with silky, healthy locks that will remove the signs of your dry, lifeless hair. My only regret is not trying it sooner. I'll definitely be putting this oil in my weekly haircare routine from now on. 

You can thank me later hun. Let me know if you give it a try!

Thanks for reading gals!
