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[...]

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[...]

Fudge Clean Blonde Violet Range

Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing some great products for keeping cool blonde hair ashy, as it's such an ongoing battle and it is hard to find products that work.  I've got several features planned, but I wanted to share with you a review of the Fudge Clean Blonde Violet range as it's so good! There are four products in the collection, a shampoo and conditioner duo, plus a mousse and a spray. The Fudge Clean Blonde Violet Shampoo an[...]

Quick Pick Tuesday: Colab Unicorn Dry Shampoo

I'm a real fusspot when it comes to dry shampoos and I certainly don't seem to get on with the popular ones that everybody loves and raves about.  I also get through a lot of bottles of dry shampoo as I have to get my hair care just right; if I wash my hair too often then it becomes a fluffy, flyaway mess, but if I don't do it often enough, it quickly turns into an oily, greasy mop that looks terrible.  Therefore, I use dry shampoo on that trick[...]

Quick Pick Tuesday: Aveda Texture Tonic

I absolutely love Aveda skincare, but I have a slightly more unpredictable relationship with Aveda haircare, so I kept an open mind for the recently launched Aveda Texture Tonic, a styling product that promises to add a soft and hydrated hit of tousled texture.  As someone who always, always, always reaches for the product that promises texture above everything else, I was looking forward to putting this through its paces. I really hate textur[...]


My Ojon Hair Treatment Prescription

Have you heard of or tried Ojon products? I must confess, whilst I was familiar enough with the brand to know that they're hero product is the little tub of damage-fighting goodness, otherwise know as the Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Treatment, I hadn't actually found out much about the range beyond what I'd read on other blogs.  Therefore, when I was invited along to meet Jennie Roberts - the UK Treatment Technician for Ojon - and have a damage d[...]

Nicky Clarke Volume Kit

The Nicky Clarke hair care range has recently launched onto Ideal World TV, and to mark the occasion I was sent the Nicky Clarke Volume Kit which contains 3 full-sized volumising products; Volume Shampoo, Volume Conditioner and Hair Raising Thicken and Shine Spray. Firstly, shall we take a moment to appreciate the gorgeous packaging; isn't it lovely? I really like the vintage-style, possibly even slightly masculine, apothecary-esque packagi[...]


Pantene Breakage Defence Range

I believe our body builds up a tolerance to things such as hair and facial care which is why it's important to mix things up every now and again.  I'm religious about this approach to hair products as I think using the same shampoo and conditioner every wash makes hair complacent, if that makes sense.  Every 4-6 washes I use a different shampoo and conditioner set and I always try and have a few sets around to work through.  The Pantene Breakag[...]


Old Wives Tail Jojoba & Clove Organic Oil Treatment

Old Wives Tail is a small brand of hair treatments made with lovely ingredients designed to penetrate the hair shaft to add volume and moisture.  There are several different types of hair oil as well as a range of hair masks, and I've been trying out the Jojoba & Clove Organic Oil Treatment.  This particular hair oil is designed for dull, brittle or broken hair which I wouldn't say mine is, however, I do colour it regularly and I don't deep[...]
