But how does my hair look?

I'm a real stickler when it comes to my hair, it's got to look absolutely banging before I leave the house. I remember the days in comp when our side fringes had to be VERY STRAIGHT, not just straight. If we wore our hair in a ponytail, it had to be slicked right back, not one single strand of hair had to be out of place. Maybe my obsession draws from my time in comp, watching girls obsess over their hair.


Don't get me wrong, I'm not super strict with my hair routine, it's always super scruffy when I go to the gym. It looks even worse by the time I leave the gym. I won't straighten my hair now unless it's absolutely necessary eg. if I'm going 'out-out' or going somewhere important. It's just damaging my hair if I straighten it everyday. Plus it's a waste of time when I'm just going to be slobbing out in my jogger's watching Jezza Kyle.


So how have I been looking after my hair lately? I'm glad you asked (ok, I asked myself that, but follow my lead will ya?)


Let's do a mini throwback, I won a Boux Avenue competition a while back (thank you for your congrats) , the prize included a (now spent) £100 Boux Avenue voucher - BOOM! Also it included a box of hair goodies from Grow Gorgeous. I'll admit, it's a brand I've never heard of before, but it's hair care products, I'm always willing to try anything new.




I've been using the shampoo and leave in conditioner for a while now and I must say - I AM IN TOTAL LOVE. The smell of the shampoo is just so heavenly, you do have to use a good decent blob of it however, but it lathers lovely in my hair and it smells gorgeous (did I mention that already?) . I do use another conditioner after that for my (endless) split ends. After I towel dry my hair, I grab the leave in conditioner, you pump out 2-5 times, depending on the length of the hair and smooth it through to the ends.



When I use the hairdryer afterwards, I can notice the shine immediately after I've full dried my hair.


Would I recommend this brand? Abso-bloody-lutely! Grow Gorgeous products have completely revamped my hair and it's given the much needed nourishment it's been crying out for for so long.



I've just started using the Thickening Hair and Scalp Mask and Hair Growth Serum. I'll let you know about the results of them another time. Maybe on my Insta Stories.




I may not be the best person at applying makeup or remembering to exfoliate every week, but when it comes to hair care, I like to be right at the top of my game!



Let me know if you use Grow Gorgeous products or let me know what you use on your hair!

  1. These products look great! I use the L'Oréal Rebalancing Clay Shampoo & Conditioner for my oily roots and they have helped massively!

  3. I’m absolutely terrible with looking after my hair, so I might have to invest in these products! Particularly the leave in conditioner, my hair can look so dull sometimes and I get split ends even though I never straighten it. I guess it’s my own fault for wanting super long hair haha, it comes with a lot of maintenance.

    1. It's hard growing your hair Chloe, you need to have it trimmed every six weeks for it to grow longer!

  4. Going to have a look at these products myself. At the moment my hair is about the best condition it's been ever but I am having it regularly highlighted and its just starting to dry out so I'm panicking. Thanks for the advice ❤️

  9. Oh, I remember being at school and being judged if your hair wasn't perfectly straight, too. I used to straighten mine everyday, sometimes twice a day, and it'd still be frizzy and I hated it. I love the look of your hair in this blog post, though; it looks like the products are definitely working for you! I've never heard of the Grow Gorgeous brand before, but I love the sound of the leave in conditioner! I recently rediscovered my curly hair after years of heat damage, and I'm following the curly method to try and bring them back. It involves using no shampoo (which is hard -- I'm just over a week in and my hair is hating it!), and washing your hair upside down with conditioner. There's loads of stuff you can do afterwards, but I only use an argan oil at the moment to try and do things at my own pace. I'm definitely going to keep in mind the leave in conditioner, though; if that's CG friendly then I might've found another product to add to my list!

  11. I remember those days of having to have super straight hair! Luckily my hair is really fine and goes really straight when it’s longer than my shoulders. I’d really like to see how this product continues to work for you! I’m looking for a product to make my hair appear a little thicker. It’s always so great finding products that work really well for your hair!
