They say you either take care of your skin or your hair - and rarely both. It's safe to say that haircare is often a secondary thought that I rarely put much time or money into. But recently I've been putting a bit more effort into my hair and been trying a few new products that I've really been loving.

For shampoo, I always start with a simple Australian Tea Tree Anti-Dandruff Shampoo which is my favourite anti-dandruff shampoo (especially as it's fairly natural and doesn't smell like medicine or tar... Then from this step, I've been really enjoying the Davines Volu Shampoo*, I've heard so much about Davines and have been loving the shampoo. It's fairly lightweight and smells really fresh - so doesn't leave my hair feeling heavy or overly scented. It definitely gives a noticeable lift in my roots. I'm also very much into the packaging - I love how simple and minimal it is and it looks great on a bathroom shelf. (Superficial, but aren't we all?)

For conditioner, I've been using a much heavier conditioner - the Davines Melu Conditioner* which is designed for anti-breakage and damaged hair. Because I've been styling my hair slightly more than usual, having a repairing and heavy-duty conditioner has been my way of preventing my hair from becoming dry and brittle. Whilst I love the packaging, it isn't the most practical as it feels slightly like it's a Tupperware box - mine arrived slightly broken so not too travel-friendly. But the product is so thick and almost like a hair mask that I'm not sure if it would work in a typical conditioner squeezy bottle. It's worth it - it's so good. Because it's so thick, I apply most of it to the ends of my hair and work whats left through the rest.

With styling, I've always liked a messy and textured look so have always been on a quest to find the best "messy but not too heavy" spray or product. So surprisingly, I've been really enjoying salt sprays. I first tried the Sacha Juan Ocean Mist Salt Spraywhich I love but because it was part of a beauty box, I've been keeping it for holidays as the bottle is perfectly travel sized. But I've also seriously been enjoying the Davines Sea Salt Spray*. Not only is the packaging so pretty and oh-so-photogenic, but the product is really great. It's not as gritty as the Sacha Juan version but it feels a lot lighter on the hair whilst still giving the same beachy look. Sea salt sprays really hold the wave much more than texturising sprays - even if you apply them onto dry hair. Definitely a favourite and ideal for a low-maintenance hairstyle.

What are some of your go-to hair products? Do you have any holy grails that I need to try?
