Accessorise Your Hair

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

Tartan Button ClipsNext season sees an almost ‘anything goes’ mentality in the hair department. Up-down, down-do or no-do, it’s not about how you wear it, but what you wear in it. We’ve already seen the return of the Alice Band over the summer, and now all kinds of accessories are being used in hair styles, from brooches to clips, ribbons and bows, and even the humble bobble.

Dorothy Perkins have a great selection of hairbands and clips, including these cute Tartan Button Clips, and there are lots of bargains to be had in their current sale.

The great thing about this trend is that it can be achieved cheaply with shops like Claire’s Accessories, or you can go for one statement designer piece. Haberdasheries are great for picking up ribbon, as there’s a huge variety at very cheap prices.

Aveda – After-Sun Treatment Masque

Monday, July 14th, 2008

Aveda Hair MasqueLast year after coming back from holiday I found that my hair was very dry and damaged, being a sun worshipper I sit out all day long; probably not doing my hair any good. So this year I told myself I wasn’t going to go away on holiday without some treatment for my hair and I was advised to get this Aveda After-Sun Treatment Masque. Being a treatment masque it immediately attracted me as I like the idea of putting something thicker than shampoo or a leave in conditioner on my hair.

The intensive masque contains sunflower oil and vitamin B it certainly manages to put protein back into the hair, moisturises and acts as a defence against sunlight. I used it every few days on holiday after shampooing and conditioning applying it from root to tip; I left it for 2-5 mins then rinsed it all out. I must say it smelt delicious and certainly did the trick as my hair stayed conditioned, people even commented on my hair asking why it didn’t look dry!

As it is suitable for all hair types there seems to be nothing stopping you, at £15.00 you can purchase this direct from Aveda.co.uk.
