Looking after my locks

| 27 May , 2009 | 1 Reply

I love trying lots of different products on my hair, it’s wavy and quite often has its own mind, what am I saying quite often, more like 99% of the time!  I would love to have the ‘perfectly’ styled hair that Anna Wintour has but alas mine is a mane!

Dove have just released their new Heat Defence Therapy System to repair and protect hair from the damage caused by heated appliances.  We know that heated styling appliances are ‘extremely’ or ‘very damaging’ to our hair yet we continue to straighten and blow dry our hair which means we are not willing to compromise on looking good.  So Dove has come to our rescue to help us protect our hair with a Shampoo, Conditioner and Styling Mist.  They say the system helps maintain the moisture levels in the hair shaft and prevent the weakening of the hair structure before styling.  I used the system and I liked it and would like to think that it did it’s job.  Available from your local supermarket or pharamacy now – Shampoo & Conditioner 300ml RRP $5.99 and Mist 150ml RRP $7.99.

This hair care range is a rainbow of pretty colours and is from Planet Earth.  They have five treatments available in Shampoos and Conditioners, covering all hair types needs.

  • For fine, limp hair, try the Body & Volume!
  • For coloured or highlighted hair, use Colour Protect
  • For everyday use, the best product would be Normal Everyday
  • For chemically treated or damaged coloured hair, try Hydrating.
  • For dry and damaged locks, try Smooth As Silk.

The Planet Earth Hair Care range is very affordable and comes in two sizes, 375ml RRP $6.99 and 100ml RRP$3.99.  I love the travel sizes, perfect for those weekends away.  Available in Target.


The Andrew Collinge brand is synomyous with celebrities in particular the divine Kate Winslet.   His Simply No Frizz Shine On Salon Serum will smooth away frizz and helps treat and prevent split ends. It also prevents static while brow-drying straight and calms curls and waves before drying naturally or with a diffuser.  I use this product when my hair is having a fly-away day and it does help settle them down.  And the one minute wonder deep conditioning salon treatment is perfect for preparing your tresses for your red carpet evening out.  Available at Coles, Priceline, Kmart and selected Pharmacies, Shine on Salon Serum RRP $12.99 and the 1 minute wonder sachet RRP$3.45.

TRESemme has also come to our hair rescue with their Thermal Creations range so we don’t have to sacrifice our hair styling needs.  I have been using the Straightening Balm which helps smooth the hair and absorb heat when styling and I like it.  I also used the Deep Smoothing Masque and that was brilliant.  The masque contains Vitamin H and Almond Oil and left my hair smelling so lovely and feeling soft and calm.  Both products are available at major supermarkets and selected pharamacies.  The Deep Smoothing Masque 30ml sachet (very generous) is RRP $2.99 and the Straightening Balm RRP $9.95.
