I hate doing my hair. On 6/7 days, my hair is usually up in a ponytail or bun because I canâ€™t be arsed to do anything with it.
I have really thick hair, so it takes forever to blowdry and straighten. I always wash my hair in the evenings, let it airdry overnight, and straighten it the next evening because Iâ€™ll take every moment of sleep I can get in the morning.

My hair dresser once told me I had the hair of 5 people (to which I morbidly joked “Yes, I absorbed 4 of my siblings in the womb.”) The point is, I go through hair care products like it’s my job, especially shampoo and conditioner.
Today, let’s take a look through some of my tried and tested favourite hair care products!
This past weekend was Ipsy’s Generation Beauty, a weekend-long makeup and beauty event founded by Michelle Phan for beauty lovers to network, meet their favourite brands, and get a ton of free stuff! (I say “free”, but I think the regular attendee badge was about $100?) I was fortunate enough to qualify for Ipsy’s Generation Beauty as a creator. Keep reading to see what we received….
