Ombré hair care routine

Well hello to you my reader chums! Recently I ombréd my hair again and as this essentially means bleaching the ends of your hair, its vital to use the right products to take care of your hair. I'm going to share with you the products I like to use:
 

First thing I use is the 'Bee Strong' shampoo and conditioner. I've been using and re-purchasing this for a while, it has the loveliest smell and as its aimed to strengthen hair is perfect for somebody who has damaged their hair in some form such as ombréing. Both of these products leave my hair feeling soft and looking healthier.

The next thing is a tone corrector purple shampoo by John Freida. If you have ombréd or dyed your hair blonde all over, its necessary to use a purple shampoo because it helps get rid of the brassy tones and bring out the blonde colour. I use this between my shampoo and conditioner and apply it on the blonde part at the bottom of my hair. I leave it on for 3-5 minutes to give it chance to do its job and wash it out. Once washed out, it honestly makes such a difference, resulting in the blonde being more true to its colour and making it more noticeable. I put this on once or twice a week.
 
Another product I use once or twice a week is this strengthening mask also from the 'Bee Strong' range by Herbal essences. I'm in love with this and featured it in my latest favourites post which you can check out here. The consistency of the mask is rich and creamy and feels like luxury when applied to the hair. I usually leave it on between 3-5 minutes, then rinse it out and it leaves my hair feeling so silky. I would definitely recommend some type of hair mask to use once or twice a week if you have ombréd hair.

Once I've towel dried my hair I take a small amount of argan oil in the palm of my hand and run it through the bottoms of my hair. Then when my hair is dried, it leaves the ends feeling smoother. Argan oil also smells amazing, which is a bonus!

When my hair is dry and if I apply heat, I always use a heat defence like this one keratin smooth by Tresemme. Its vital to use some form of heat protectant because by ombréing your hair you've already damaged it and don't want to add extra damage by adding heat, therefore a heat defence is necessary. Even if you've not dyed your hair you should always use some form of a heat defence because over time heat damages the hair and thins it out. I love this one in particular because it has such a nice smell and it does the job which is something needed in a heat protectant.
 
Those were all the products I like to use on my hair, I hope you enjoyed!
