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[...]

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[...]

Quick Pick Tuesday: Manta Hair Brush

It's impossible to avoid the comparison between the Manta Hair Brush and the Tangle Teezer, but I would say that the Manta Hair Brush is kind of like a more sophisticated, grown-up version that's a little more elegant with a lovely backstory too.  Tim Binnington, the creator of the The Manta, designed it to help his wife protect and carefully care for her new hair regrowth after receiving chemotherapy that resulted in hair loss.  As anyone in he[...]

Revlon Professional Nutri Color Cremes

I'm very accustomed to the struggle that is trying to keep ashy hair ashy, especially since my hair seems to inexplicably desire warmth; from the moment I get my ashy colour put in, you can almost see the brassiness developing in real time - it's very annoying! With that in mind, I was very keen to try some of the newest shades of the Revlon Professional Nutri Color Cremes, especially as they're all the types of cool tones than lend themselves br[...]

Headmasters, Great Portland Street, Review

It's been absolutely ages since I visited a Headmasters salon, so I was excited to be invited into review a style and colour experience, especially as I was going to the Great Portland Street salon, which is one I haven't visited before.  My appointment was with Claire, who is usually based at the Raynes Park salon.  Claire was fabulously helpful and great at interpreting what I wanted with regards to both the colour and style. The Great[...]
