Pomegranate & Orange Flower Shampoo

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

Tommy Guns Pomegranate & Orange Flower ShampooWhile flicking through my weekly magazine at work I came across a product by Tommy Guns that I simply had to try out! It is pomegranate & orange flower shampoo and smells absolutely beautiful in my opinion. It is a daily shampoo that is extra gentle for those of you that have sensitive skin. It is full of antioxidants and contains a shine boosting formula that really makes your hair look healthy and feel fabulous.

The shampoo really cleanses your hair and scalp and you’ll feel totally revitalised. If the shampoo takes your fancy you may also be interested in the Pomegranate Orange Flower & Hemp Conditioner, it is also gentle enough for daily use and can be used on all hair types. The hemp in the conditioner smooths and moisturises and the orange Flower helps bring out your hairs natural shine.

Both the shampoo and conditioner are available at Boots for £4.99 each, you can also check out the Tommy Guns website for more information.

Accessorize Head BandFancy adding an extra fashion accessory to your look? Why not go for instant glam by adding a hair band but keeping your hair style simple.

There are plenty of styles in the shops to experiment with to suit the look that you are going for. Pick one with a bow on in your favourite colour or go for an over the top one with fancy twists and beads! I have found loads on the accessorize website that I have fallen in love with, but this one in particular really caught my attention.

This Gem Butterfly Alice Band is £8.00 and would really finish off an evening outfit!

Jordan Haircare

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

Curling TongsWell what can I say, is there any marketing pie Jordan doesn’t want to get her finger in to?? She’s done it all, jewellery, accessories and now hair care!

HairdryerI personally think the new range looks as tacky as I would expect anything sold by her too look like, but I haven’t tried and tested for quality purposes, so if you are a fan of hers – which I’m clearly not, then give her the benefit of the doubt and try these new products.

StraightnersThey might work well, I can’t imagine they’re going to the job that top salon products do, but it may be worth giving them ago for the price alone.

Superdrug is currently stocking the range and the have curling tongs for £12.99, a hairdryer with attachments for £19.99 and a sleek pair of straightners for £19.99. It appears from the Superdrug website that the hairdryer is currently out of stock so someone out there must be loving it!! You can check out each product in the range either on line or pop down to your nearest Superdrug to see for yourself.

Expert Hair loss Treatment

Thursday, October 18th, 2007

Expert Hair loss TreatmentOften when women get to a certain age their hair seems to thin and they search for products to regain younger, fuller hair. Even some of us youngsters have thin, wispy locks and yearn for thicker hair. We try volumising sprays, which are good on the day you use it, but as soon as you’ve washed your hair, your back to the same old look.

This expert hair loss treatment is for everyone; if your hair is thin due to old age, simply fine or just slow growing. This product will encourage thicker hair, as well as more of it. It has taken researchers seven years of clinical trials to come up with this spray and results show that 80% of testers have found it to be successful. The product is available from Boots for £19.99, but you must be patient as it can take up to 3 months for results to be seen.

Curls Made Easy with Babyliss You Curl

Monday, October 8th, 2007

Babyliss You CurlYou may already have curling tongs, but trust me you’ll want a set of these Babyliss you Curl! For me, trying to use a normal straightening iron to curl my hair is an absolute nightmare, everyone says “its as easy as curling a ribbon with a pair of scissors” yeah right! I’ve only ever known hairdressers or people studying hair, to be able to do it that way.

For the likes of you and me that haven’t got the first clue, we need these. You just run them through your hair like a normal straightener, but the curved plates will leave you with loose, sexy waves. So much easier than going to the salon. This video demonstrates how it is done and we might even stand a chance of doing the back bits with these. Currently available at Amazon.co.uk for £39.99.

Hippy Headbands

Sunday, September 23rd, 2007

Hippy Head BandUsually we associate headbands with summer but many stars are still wearing them and summer has certainly disappeared this year! This time round it’s the hippy headgear that is all the range, this tie band is a hippy print with a paisley design, using a mixture of purples, yellow and black it really does have that hippy look to it.

When choosing a band or head scarf, go for sparkly ones or bright colours. They are ideal to use as a quick fix on a bad hair day or when you are trying to grow a fringe out. You can wear head bands straight across your forehead or over your head for an instant 70’s chic look. This one is available from Accessorize for £6.

Pantene Pro-V Smooth and Sleek Mask

Saturday, August 25th, 2007

Pantene Smooth and Sleek MaskPantene really do cater for all hair types and colours. This intensive conditioning mask is from the smooth and sleek range and is a treatment to be used to turn dry, straight or wavy hair into gorgeous smooth and silky hair all day long. There is a lot of controversy as to whether these products actually do as the labels say but I have used quite a few of Pantene’s products and I think they work great.

I have always been really pleased with the outcome, so I think I will have to try one of these masks as well. They are available on the Pantene Pro-V Website and are sold in most supermarkets. Unlike many salon based products, these are usually sold at affordable prices.
