Oh, hair, I do wish I'd looked after you better over the years. As someone who has considerably dry and damaged hair after countless years dyeing, curling and generally mistreating my locks; it is absolutely vital that I have a product in my haircare routine that cleanses, repairs and gives my hair the essential nourishment that it craves. After recently making the somewhat sporadic decision to bleach the ends of my hair and dye them a delightful sea-mermaid green, this is true as ever. And so, I only thought it necessary to give my haircare routine an up-to-date edit in time for the warmer months.

One brand unexpectedly triumphing the haircare game right now is L'Occitane; more typically known for their skincare, body lotions and glorious array of gifts during the festive season. Needless to say, when it comes to gentle, nourishing and repairing shampoo L'Occitane have all essential bases covered in their Aromachologie Repairing range, formulated specifically for dry and damaged hair. This silicone-free shampoo claims to transform and revitalise your hair, helping to repair, strengthen and give it that vital protection; all of which is exactly what I need to uplift my lifeless locks.

The formula of this shampoo is made up of a natural complex of five essential oils; ylang-ylang, sweet orange, lavender, geranium and angelica. These oils, in combination with added Vitamin B5 and amino acids, help to smooth, soften and strengthen hair. After what feels like countless months of lazily keeping up with my lacklustre haircare routine (and by that I mean, totally ignoring what my hair was crying out for and grabbing any hair product within arms reach of the shower, without paying any real attention to what it could be doing to my hair, ooops); I truly feel as though this shampoo has made the world of difference to the overall look and feel of my hair. A little goes such a long way with this product, resulting hair feeling silky soft, cleansed and nourished, right down to my scalp, without leaving it feeling dried out.

Now, admittedly, the scent of the shampoo is probably my least favourite thing about it. When it comes to shampoos, I personally find sweeter scents more appealing. Because let's be honest, there is an undeniable sense of satisfaction that comes with swishing your hair to and 'fro and getting a waft of something sweet. The scent of this particular shampoo is much more aromatic, but nonetheless wonderfully fresh all the while. And although the price range of this product is about twice as much as I would usually tend to spend on haircare, I have very quickly found that it is entirely worth it. Truthfully, I can't envision myself reverting back to my lazy haircare routine anytime soon. Thank god, says my hair.
