Colour Me Different

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Purple HairChristmas is a great time to consider changing your hair colour – a new shade is the ultimate party accessory, and a great way to give relatives something to talk about! Just before you reach for the peroxide though, make sure you choose a shade that’ll compliment your skin tone.

If you’re feeling brave, then how about purple? This season’s hottest colour doesn’t just have to be for clothes, for the truly daring why not opt for something like in the picture? Drastic yes, but you could always dye it back to a more natural shade in the new year, and this cut will look great with any colour. Be sure to go to a salon for this though – it’s definitely not a do it yourself job.

Generally though, it’s about subtlety, think muted, not peroxide blonde, and warm light brown tones, like toffee, butterscotch and honey.

Finally, don’t forget to invest in a good colour protect shampoo and conditioner, to keep your hair looking tip top. Try Paul Mitchell’s range of Colour Protect Daily Shampoo and Conditioner, now reduced at HQ Hair.

Molten Brown ShampooMolten Brown have launched a great range of haircare to go with their other luxury products that include handwash, makeup and skin care.

They’ve kept it simple and have four different kinds of shampoo that target different hair troubles.

Ban Oily hair…with Oil

Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

Body Shop Olive Glossing ShampooWe’ve all heard that olive oil is good for your hair, but personally I’ve always been a bit scared to try it incase it wouldn’t rinse out and my hair ended up, well, oily. Luckily, The Body Shop have produced their Olive Glossing Shampoo. It contains olive leaf extract rather than oil, which makes hair glossy as well as helping to protect hair from damage. And, because it’s The Body Shop, you can lather up guilt free, as the oil is sourced from a co-operative in Italy, making sure that it’s top quality and the producers get a fair cut of the profit.The shampoo also contains organic honey which moisturises and conditions the hair.

There’s also a conditioner, which does contain organic olive oil which gets right inside the hair to condition and nourish, as well as protect.

If you fancy trying it, the shampoo and conditioner are available in a small 60ml size which contains enough for 3 or 4 washes, and perfect for taking on holiday.

Find it at The Body Shop online or in store.

Superstar consists of several luxurious products including Thermal blow-dry lotion, Volumizing Hairspray, Volumizing Leave in Conditioner, Superstar shampoo and conditioner and Queen For A Day.

All the bottles are pink and purple – the ultimate girly collection and all reasonably priced (most under £10 per bottle). I must have made my way through the whole Bed Head collection so I am very pleased they have launched these fab new products!

Shear Splendor Hair Mask

Thursday, February 21st, 2008

Shear Splendor ConditionerIf you’re in the mood to give your hair a bit of TLC then dig into your pockets and purchase a conditioning mask to give dull locks a little lift. I love this Shear Splendor mask available at HQ Hair. It not only makes your hair feel fabulous but also helps repair and restore hair from within the shaft.

The product contains peptides, soy and botanical butter base, instantly helping dry and damaged hair look and feel soft, shiny and fabulous. This mask costs £18 but I recommend it over others, it tends to last quite a long time too as you don’t need a lot to get you locks back into shape!

Grow Hair Faster With FAST!

Sunday, January 27th, 2008

FAST Shampoo and ConditionerHave you had your hair cut off and so wished you hadn’t? I did it last year. In a mad moment I said to my hairdresser just cut it off, so she did! My neat, shoulder-length bob was transformed into a short, cropped style which I liked at the time, but it soon grew out of style and I regretted having the snip. I looked on the Internet to find something, anything that would make it grow; I didn’t find anything and have had to wait months for it to grow out.

This product caught my eye so I thought I should share it with any of you who are looking for the same thing. FAST is a product to increase hair growth on existing hair, it isn’t a hair loss product. It claims that if you use the product every day, and your hair normally grows 1 inch per month, using this it will grow 1½ inches per month. Over 6 months that’s an extra 3 inches of luscious long hair!! They say that it works on all hair types, on both men and women and can be used with any other hair products. I am interested to hear if this really does work; let me know!!
