BEFORE I bleached my hair white blonde and chopped it short my hair was in such AWFUL condition.
I had inch and a half-long roots and my barnet resembled the mane of a particularly scruffy lion – it was totally out of control.
After seeing David at Tommy Guns in Shoreditch for a restyle, my locks are in much better condition but they aren’t going to stay that way unless I treat them with a bit of respect. So I’ve been stocking up on super-nourishing masques which are going to keep my hair in tip top condition.
Confession time – turns out I’ve been using hair masques totally wrong my entire life. What a doofus.
Previously I’d sit there with a hair masque on for the requisite time and then after making my hair as soft as silk, I’d use a shampoo and conditioner and basically undo all my hard work. It was only last month when I actually read the instructions properly that I realised you use the masque *after* shampoo. I am an idiot.
Here are my top picks of hair masques to repair your damaged locks, below.
