Hair update

Hey, guys!

Today I am writing about my updated hair care routine and the progress of growing my hair out healthier and stronger.

You can read the background story in this post I did a while back.

I got my hair cut & toned by my sister back in December, when I went home for the Christmas holidays and took advantage of her discount as a professional purchasing new items.
At the moment I am washing my hair every 2-3 days (I always shampoo twice) with this Keune Care Line shampoo & conditioner duo and occasionally use the Leave-In Hair Repair. I'm one of the people that brush my hair wet more often than not (I know), however, I both tend to wait until it airdries as much as possible and have been using the Tangle Teezer for the past few weeks, which, by the way is absolutely amazing.
For care and protection I use the Wella Oil Reflections, which is easily one of my favorite products to use; period. I think it's mostly the smell...?, I just love it so much, I'd use it , even if it didn't work, haha. However, thankfully, it does leave my hair soft, smooth, shiny and tangle free. Before blowdrying I use the Got2b Guardian Angel, after hearing about it from Ingrid on youtube and so far, I really like it. It's light and seems to smooth my hair as well as protect. Sometimes (about once a week or so), if I know that I will wash my hair the morning after, I take about 2 spoonfuls of raw, organic coconut oil and leave it in a braid overnight, which, if anything, at least smells very nice.
For styling I suddenly rediscovered the Gun-Britt Root Lifting spray in my own stash, after, probably, simply using it wrongly before and not getting the wanted results. Now I spray the product in my roots and lightly rub it in before blowdrying my hair with my head down; brush my hair again when dry and I am good to go. For 2nd and 3rd day hair I relay on the TRESemm√© Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo, which I also heard from youtube and this is, no doubt, the best dry shampoo I have tried so far. All the others make my hair feel even more greasy, weighed down and flat. If my hair need a bit of a pick me up, I use some salt water spray - either the Toni&Guy Sea Salt Texturizing Spray, which has a much more crispy finish, or the Cha Cha Cha Professional Volume & Texture Spray (which I couldn't seem to find online, sorry!).

I am just about to run out of my shampoo, so I am open for new suggestions :) My hair is very fine, obviously.

My question to you, however is - do you have any recommendations to fight static hair during winter? It really annoys me, to be honest, but I don't want to weigh my hair down or dry it out with products.

Have you tried any of these? What are your favorites?

Talk to you soon!
