COLAB Dreamer Dry Shampoo

COLAB Dreamer Dry Shampoo

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  I feel like dry shampoos have come on such a long way in the last few years, going from powdery hair stiffeners that took away all shine and softness alongside all the grease, to multipurpose products that not only put life back into hair, they add volume, they add fragrance and they allow you to revive and style hair in a matter of minutes.  COLAB is one of the mai[...]

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer - Balancing Rose & Lychee

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer – Balancing Rose & Lychee

QVC UK are brilliant at doing beauty deals, as we know, and they often put out a deal that consists of a giant bottle of an iconic product that's available for a special price for a limited time.  I've been fortunate enough to receive a few of these over the years, but by the time I've gone to feature them they're either completely sold out, or the deal has ended, so when the beautiful new Balancing Rose & Lychee fragrance of the cult Philip[...]

From Blonde to Red…and Back Again! (with Charles Worthington)

Disclaimer: PR Appointments - I have not been paid for this feature.  I started putting together this post with the intention of detailing my hair story over the last couple of years, since I've been visiting Jo at Charles Worthington quite a bit, trying new things here and there, and I thought it would be fun to look back at what we've tried. As I was pulling the posts from Instagram (that really is like a hair diary for me!) I realised tha[...]

Glossybox x Living Proof Limited Edition Box

Glossybox x Living Proof Limited Edition Box

Disclaimer: PR Sample and Affiliate links - I have not been paid for this feature.  At first (I was afraid...) I was unsure what to make of the Glossybox x Living Proof collaboration, as hair products are so incredibly personal - make-up you can kind of make work, even if it's not the norm for you, and most skincare you can find a use for, one way or another, but hair products are very specific: most people know what they like and stick with it, so[...]


Living Proof Full Collection

[lookbook id="25366" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] *PR Sample/Aff. Links* The Living Proof hair care range has been on my radar for a while, but other than appearing in the occasional beauty box, I haven't really investigated any further.  I've been trying out some key products from the Living Proof Full collection, alongside the Dry Shampoo from the PHD (Perfect Hair Day) range, so here's a look at how I got on: F[...]

Colour:Vibe Vibrance and Silvers Hair Colourants

*AD - PR Samples/Gifted/Affiliate Links* Okay so I am hugely behind on featuring these new collections from Colour:Vibe, mostly because I had such a great selection of colours to pick from that I kept trying to build up the courage to give them a go; I finally did this weekend, realised that the silvers were permanent colours (I had it in my head they were all semi-permanent) and chickened out, mainly because a few weeks ago I was at Charles Worthi[...]

Schwarzkopf Got2B Oh My Nude! Hair Styling Trio

If we can quietly overstep the somewhat dubious name of the Oh My Nude! range from Schwarzkopf (I braced myself when sticking those words into Google) then this is a rather fantastic range of hair styling products that actually fills a gap in the market - tricky to achieve in our heavily swamped world of beauty - by providing styling products for those of us that can't really be bothered to do any real styling.  The Schwarzkopf Got2B Oh My Nude![...]

A Drastic New Colour Change with Charles Worthington

One of my all-time favourite things to do is visit Jo (Johanne Herald) at Charles Worthington in Percy Street, London, because the whole experience, from start to finish, is always a total joy and an experience I look forward to whenever I'm fortunate enough to be invited back.  Last time I visited Jo was just before Christmas, and I went along with a desire to try something a bit different; I've been going for cool blonde for as long as I can re[...]

Rita Hazan New York Lock + Block Protective Spray

I was absolutely kicking myself when I realised that I hadn't packed my Rita Hazan New York Lock + Block Protective Spray for my recent holiday, as that would've been the absolute perfect time to not only fully put the product through its paces, but also actually make full use of it to protect my hair from all the elements that it definitely wasn't used to - my hair is still struggling to return to its original condition now, as it still feels dr[...]

Bargain Alert: Supersized Philip Kingsley Elasticizer at QVC UK

I have been meaning to post about this extremely good deal from QVC UK for absolutely ages, but kept forgetting! The Philip Kingsley Elasticizer is one of those cult products that every hair type can benefit from, especially as it's a pre-wash treatment, so those who have hair that can easily get weighed down by traditional deep conditioners can also use this in their routine.  I've been a Philip Kingsley fan for such a long time and I used to pi[...]

Bumble and Bumble Bb Thickening Collection – New Additions

The Bumble and Bumble Bb Thickening Collection has been around for a while - I remember the huge hype around the cult Dryspun Texture Spray when it first launched - but recently the range has had a bit of an uplift (boom, boom) with some new products as well as updated formulas.  There are eight products in the collection in total, with two new additions and two reformulations. The two new arrivals are both styling products that compliment[...]
