How I have been taking care of my hair more recently
Pregnancy is meant to make your hair thick and luscious and bouncy and the best it ever has been. For me this HAS NOT happened it is still its limp thin self and still falling out like there is no tomorrow. So I was looking for a product that would help me get some volume and fool everyone into thinking that it is thicker than it actually is.
I think a lot of the volumising shampoos out there promote volume with their product but really you get a fluffy mess that is hard to tame. And the conditioner… well the can have the opposite effect and bring that grease back with vengeance.
Then David Mallett arrived on my doorstep.
If I am honest I was super apprehensive to use the product. The packaging looks very basic and amateur and slightly unnatural almost. I have spoken about hair growth on my blog before ( Read my post here.) but havent really looked at nourishing volumising products. All this aside I thought, you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover I guess so after a few days of the product sitting on the side I decided to give it a go.
I normally wash my hair with shampoo twice then a blog of conditioner then serum on damp or dry hair. So I started with a rinse and two washes of David Mallett Shampoo No.2 Le Volume. The shampoo is quite a runny liquid that smells like nothing I have ever smelt before. It kind of smells rustic. There is no other word to describe it really. It doesn’t lather too well so be generous with the amount you use. I found it let my hair with a little more volume than normal but still manageable.
Mask No.2 Le Volume is the conditioner like product to apply next. Towel dry your hair and apply to roots and eave for 5-10 minutes. Product will harden in this time but will rinse out fine. The consistency is like glue or a runny wax and not very easy to work with.
The Hair serum I used last. I found the serum to really smooth split ends and left my hair with quite a glossy feeling but not like product was still left in. Some serums leave a kind of residue but this one seemed to really work well. I think the serum was my favourite product out of all three. It is super light weight and feels really nourishing and kind to the ends.
Ill be buying some of these products again when they run out I think. The shampoo is a yes and the serum is a yes but the mask I think was more of a personal thing. the consistency could be so much better and easier to work with and I felt it didn’t really add anything to the routine. I have used these products quite a lot no with and without the mask and I don’t think it made much difference if I am honest.
