Shop My Favourites

I've been trialing out a few new hair products over the past few months as part of my Hair Journey (read up for more info on Telogen Effluvium and my hair loss). One brand that I am falling in love with is the Australian born Original Minerals (O&M), a haircare brand that leave out the nasties from their products. 

One of the main problems I have with my hair is breakage. Any tiny movement and my hair seems to knot up into one big, matted mess. My apple cider vinegar rinse really helps here but I wanted a leave in conditioner for post-shampoo to keep my hair snarl-free in between washes. Step in Know Knott.

I'm just going to get right into it. This product is phenomenally good at it's job. Once I'm out of the shower, I spritz this liberally into my hair from roots to tips and let everything air dry. Even though my hair is fine and pretty long (past boob level - universal indicator of hair length!), my boar bristle brush glides right through with ease and there's no greasiness, residue or heaviness, it just feels soft, and literally no knots.

I'm really conscious about the ingredients that go into the hair products I use (and geeky enough to research them fastidiously) but the Know Knott is lovely and gentle with a lot of naturally derived ingredients. Macadamia oil, Argan oil, Australian Riberry and panthenol nourish and strengthen, whilst the chosen silicone, Amodimethicone, is one that doesn't build up due to it's electrical charge so you won't find your hair weighed down or clogged up with heavy conditioners.

I'm in love. Shiny, swishy, detangled locks, without the need for damaging heat or heavy duty hair products. And they have a travel friendly mini bottle at only £9!

Have you tried the O&M range?
I think I'll be picking up one of their masks next!
