OGX hair products. 

My hair has suffered so much over the years from over-processing on photoshoots, damage from scuba diving, years of bleaching…. 

I’ve recently had my roots slightly darker, fading down into the blonde really really subtly so that I can grow my roots down and avoid the damage of bleaching! Now my mission is to treat my hair the best I can to make it grow luscious and thick again. This includes avoiding brushing as much as possible and washing only every 2-3 days so my hair can rest and create natural oils! I found this picture which is my ultimate hair goals at the moment!  

 A while ago, my mum bought back some shampoo and conditioner that had been recommended to her. After looking at it, I realised it was the same brand as the coconut milk oil I had been using for years! I just remember being out shopping once and my hair felt dry so I randomly bought some pretty cheap oil (partly because I love coconut!) to stick on whilst I was out. And I actually fell in love. I do swear by it now and use it after every wash and between washes on dry hair if I need it, despite that not being on the instructions. 

  
OGX coconut milk anti-breakage serum  contains coconut milk (obvs) and we all know that coconut is hailed as a massive beauty saviour. Also, egg white proteins – if they’re good enough for my diet, they’re good enough for my hair. 

Ive now tried three of the different shampoos/conditioners they have on offer and my FAV are the  anti-breakage Keratin Oil ones. The keratin proteins and Argan oil leave my hair feeling luscious – not to mention the amazzzzze smell.  

  
I do like the Argan Oil and Brazilian Keratin Smooth versions also but the pink is my ultimate. 

There’s a whole massive range and you can find them in your local supermarkets, Boots or Superdrug and I’m sure many other retailers. All products are around £6-£7.

Argan Oil Review. 

I have a bit of an obsession with dewy, flowing faces, smooth and soft skin, and glossy, silky hair…. Basically all things ‘hydration’!! With this in mind, I always jump at anything that claims to offer a good shot of hydration. 

I think it’s safe to say that most of us associate quality with price… High price – high quality. Low price – low quality. Right? Wrong. 

My aunty was recently telling my mum all about these new hair products she had tried and loved! They’re basically a range of Argan Oil hair products which sounds all very normal and well with the world going Argan Oil mad at the moment.. But there’s a catch. 

These products are from POUND LAND! Yep, pound land. A pound each. 100 pence. They can’t be any good, surely? Wrong again. I’ve started using this range out of curiousity and I’ve been pleasantly surprised. When it comes to my hair, I usually splash out a little and use Bed Head or Wella products because I assume they’re better for my bleached hair. 

Here’s a few products that I’ve purchased (note that there is a few more that I’m yet to try in this range!) 

   Shampoo, conditioner, treatment mask and heat defence leave in spray.

   

  

The shampoo and conditioner do feel a little runny but it’s not a problem once the product actually hits your hair. The shampoo still lathers up and the conditioner still coats the hair nicely. 

  
The mask is creamy and oily in a nice way. After soaking my hair in this for a while whilst I was in the bath, my hair was left luscious and silky and with a healthy gloss. 

   

This leave in spray is the perfect finish before blow drying and styling your hair. It’s always a good idea to defend your hair from the every day styling heat and a little extra moisture to get you through the day is only a good thing. 

All in all, I’d give these products an 7/10. They have brilliant hydrating properties and have left my bleached hair feeling lovely. They’re also amazing considering the rediculously low price! They also small fantastic.  The only down side is the runnyness which takes away a certain hint of luxury and means you have to use more product than normal. I would definitely recommend getting down to your local pound shop/pound land/ b&m etc and picking some of this up!
