Best in Beauty 2016: haircare

I just had a look at my 2015 haircare favourites (see here) and only one of those (well, a pair) has made it to my list again this year.

Reason being, I've used a lot of new haircare in 2016 so I'd like to mention the newer stuff over my choices from previous years, but do note that I still love the products from last year's list so if you want more haircare ideas, please do check that out.

So without further ado...

Best Shampoo & Conditioner: Organix (OGX) Hydrating Macadamia Oil Shampoo & Conditioner

This is the one heading that contains the same products it did last year. Full review here. These products are just sensational for my dry, frizzy hair and I'm so glad I've finally found them!

I've always been one of those people who needs to load my hair up with product to keep it looking half-decent, but this shampoo/conditioner combo is so good that I don't need to do that. Reason being, these leave my hair shiny, hydrated and more manageable, and they do a great job at banishing my frizz too.

If you have unruly hair, I urge you to give this line a go.

O&M No Knott Conditioning Detangler

Full review here. I love this stuff. I discovered it by chance because it was in the clearance section at one of the online shops I use, so I added it to my cart just to qualify for free shipping. So glad I did! It's become a firm favourite now and I can't imagine being without it.

It's a light spray with a fresh, fruity scent that's not too strong. What I love about it is that it leaves my hair feeling beautifully soft, nourished and manageable, and looking shinier and healthier too. It's one of those products that does exactly what it claims to do (hooray for that!), and it's made the whole combing process so much easier than it used to be. 

A great product and one I recommend - especially if your hair is prone to dryness and knotting like mine is.

OGX Hydrate + Defrizz Kukui Oil Frizz Defying Curl Cream

OGX is cleaning up this year (there's more to come!) and this product was love from the first use. I've reviewed it here.

This stuff is amazing and I reckon it's nudged out John Frieda's Frizz Ease from top position on my hair treatment list. The John Frieda product has been a favourite for years and I never thought anything could beat it, but I think something finally has. 

What I love about the product is that it de-frizzes my dry, wavy hair and adds a healthy amount of shine without weighing the hair down (but don't overdo application or it will). It also makes my hair more bouncy, soft and manageable - and the effect lasts for days so you don't need to keep applying it.

A definite must-try for those with unruly hair.

Natural World Moroccan Argan Oil

Full review here. I used to think that all hair oils were pretty much the same and I generally couldn't distinguish between the good and the bad, and while I still do think that's true in many cases, I've also used a couple of rotten hair oils this year and coming back to this one has made me realise just how much I like it.

Not only is it cheaper than many, but it also comes in this handy little handbag-sized bottle - perfect for touching up on the go. Yes you can buy a larger bottle but I wouldn't recommend that because it takes me a good couple of years to get through one of these smaller ones since you need so little each time.

It nourishes, repairs, tames frizz and adds shine and moisture - exactly what my locks need. And I prefer it over more expensive oils that I've tried because I can use it liberally and it doesn't weigh my hair down - even if I apply it throughout the lengths and not just to the ends.

A great find and one I plan to repurchase in future.

OGX Hydrating Macadamia Oil Intensive Moisture Mask

Indeed OGX has cleared up this year! My final haircare pick for 2016 is this lovely little mask, which has been sitting in my shower for ages now and is still going strong. I've reviewed it here.

I love this product and it's the best hair mask I've ever used. I still do love my Royal Moroccan Hair Mask Treatment (reviewed here), but this OGX mask delivers the same results, requires less product per application, and is available for a fraction of the price.

What I love about this product is that it leaves my dry, frizzy hair super shiny, soft, manageable and hydrated. Like the matching OGX Hydrating Oil Shampoo & Conditioner, it's also the only product I've ever found that almost completely de-frizzes my hair - even that hard, wiry stuff around the hairline that was previously impossible to tame - so I don't need to use leave-in conditioners or straightening treatments when I use this because the hard work is already done. Amazing!

In sum

Them's my haircare picks for 2016, and do stay tuned because I plan to do separate posts for bath & body, facial skincare and also makeup over the next few days.

I hope you've found something interesting in this post - and remember that none of these products is super expensive so they're absolutely worth giving a go, particularly if you wait for specials and pick them up half-price.

Do let me know what haircare you've been loving this year: I'd love to hear.
