My Top 3 Hair Care Essentials for Silky Smooth Hair

Silky smooth hair isn’t just reserved for people who can afford expensive salon treatments! If you’re also a #brokemillennial like me, at home hair treatments are the solution to keeping our hair healthy and happy.

Here are 3 hair care essentials I swear by that won’t break the bank!

L’Oreal Paris Elseve Extraordinary Oil 

This hair oil is the perfect beginner hair care product. Light and non-greasy, it contains 6 precious floral oil extracts that sink deep into the hair, moisturising and protecting it. It also smells super refreshing!

I like to apply it after blow drying my hair as a finishing touch, as I find that it helps to tame frizz and keep my hair looking sleek and smooth all day. Alternatively, you can also use it before shampooing or blow-drying. 

This hair oil comes in a series targeted for different hair concerns, from damaged to coloured hair. I’m currently using the RED version, which is made for coloured hair protection. As compared to the BROWN version which I used a while back, it’s more diluted and less greasy.

I would recommend dry and damaged hair types to go for the BROWN version, and normal to oily hair types to try the RED one.

Tresemme Repair & Protect 7 Pre-Styling Spray 

I was a bit skeptical when I bought this product, but the results totally blew me away! 

As someone who blow dries my hair everyday, I noticed my hair getting drier and more brittle over time. A few spritz of this spray before blow drying not only helps protect it from heat damage, it also leaves it feeling extra smooth, soft and silky

It feels like a leave in conditioner and extra moisture booster, and I just love love love how luxurious my hair feels afterwards. Oh, and I did mention it also smells amazing? 

This styling spray protects your hair from 7 types of damage: Brushing, blow-drying, bleaching, coloring, curling, flat-ironing and braiding. If you’re someone who regularly styles your hair with heated tools, I highly recommend you to try it out.

Mise En Scene Perfect Serum 3min Salon Mask 

This hair mask claims to give salon-grade results in just 3 minutes. Fact or fiction? 

After testing it out, I find that it does leave your hair softer than a regular conditioner would, but I wouldn’t go as far as to say it feels like a salon treatment. Nevertheless, this affordable mask is a great no-frills option for a deep condition 1-2 times a week.

Texture wise, it’s like an extra thick conditioner and you need to apply quite a generous amount if you have long hair.

It contains 7 naturally derived oils to help with moisturising, repairing and nourishing hair. It also has a pleasant floral fragrance, but it can be pretty overpowering. If you’re sensitive to smells, you might want to skip this product.
