Heavenly Hair - Friday Favourites

Luscious, shiny, soft, manageable and enviable locks will always be one of our deepest desires here at The Amazing Blog. A good hair day is enough to change our whole outlook on life and a bad hair day leaves us feeling insecure and helpless to the cruel ways of the universe. We know that beauty comes from within but having light, flowy and beautiful hair is an instant confidence booster and something we always strive for! It’s a simple desire really, all we have ever wanted is to have hair so glorious Samson would weep, but achieving this goal is a momentous task that has had us in tears many many times before. Given all this, it is probably unsurprising to read that we have been on a lifelong quest to find the best hair care products out there, as such we have become experts on the subject, and it is time for us to pass this knowledge on to you our lovely readers!

The key to having soft, calm and silky hair is conditioner and after products. So it only seemed fitting to begin this post by telling you about Phil Smith and two of his Be Gorgeous products; SOS rescue Damage Protection Conditioner and Total Treat Argan Oil Cream. Phil Smith creates salon quality products by using the very best natural ingredients to ensure that hair looks and feels amazing. 


The SOS Rescue Damage Protection Conditioner is perfect for those of you who apply heat to your hair. The Intensive conditioner gives a much-needed boost of hydration to heat stressed hair. The Moroccan Argan Oil helps to protect hair and help it look shinier and feel softer. We cannot recommend this enough for those of you who religiously straighten, curl or blow dry your hair on a high heat. By protecting your hair before applying heat, you are helping it to remain healthy. SOS Damage Protection Conditioner will help it grow longer and thicker, and well as protect it from appearing dead or lack-lustre. A tube of 250 ml all for a modestly priced £2.50.

If this advice comes a little too late, however, and you have already dried your hair so much you are beyond help we present to you, Phil Smith. This is when Phil Smith’s Total Treat Argan Oil Cream comes into play. This oil-in-cream treatment will miraculously transform the texture of your hair. It helps lock in moisture to heal dry, damaged hair and restore smoothness. The combination of oil and cream gives this a luxurious texture, and you can almost see your hair drink up its goodness all for a reasonable £2.50 for 100ml tube.

If these products seem right for you, then you can purchase here at Sainburys online.

I am sure you will agree with me when we write that frizzy hair can be the bane of life and all existence. Whether you have naturally frizzy hair or leave in fear of any moisture in the air, 72 Repair Oil is the perfect one stop fix

Their rich oil had been formulated to eliminate frizz and moisturise all hair types! Aside from the fact that it works, what we love about this product is that unlike other hair oils that claim to do the same, it won’t leave your hair with a greasy residue. Because they understand that greasy hair is not necessarily favourable to frizzy hair! The product is specially formulated to revitalise and soften your hair. This easily absorbable formula will leave frizzy and angry looking hair frizz fee, shiny and radiant. 
72 Repair Oil can be purchased here for £14.99

Last but not least is [A’kin] and their Dry Shampoo. While we may strive for beautiful hair, sometimes it is easier to hit snooze than get out of bed and wash your hair before work. For mornings like that, you will be thankful to have [A’kin] by your side. The dry shampoo creates instantly fresher and fuller hair, without leaving residue build up like other dry shampoos. 

With a unique combination of natural bamboo and rice powder, the spray works equally well as a handy way to extend your hairstyle as well as a quick fix for dirty hair. The product adds volume and texture without leaving the tell-tale white residue. It is also enriched with argan oil to help smoothness and shine plus millet seed extract to help aid the scalp
