So, while I lived with my Nan, who always had stocks of Kerastase, I could indulge in more expensive hair supplies but as soon as I left I knew I had to find a more affordable brand. I used Dove as a student (and still do in the gym) but a hairdresser friend told me that the typical high street brands like Dove and Pantene simply strip the hair, with Head and Shoulders as the ultimate culprit. I often use Head & Shoulders if my hair colour has gone too dark to strip the colour!
I now use Bed Head Superstar shampoo and conditioner for thick, massive hair. Now I personally don’t think this brand is as good as Kerastase but it is slightly more affordable and most salons will have deals, I pay around £19.99 for both. My colour is protected, my hair definitely increases in volume, is left silky smooth and the conditioner really provides that necessary nourishment. If you want thicker hair, I definitely recommend trying the superstar range!
