Such a long title! however I decided to do a little review on a product that I recently got back in January because I’ve been using it more lately so thought I would share 🙂
I got this when I was back at home and trifling through sainsburys and noticed it on the shelf, I love it when my hair is curly and I love it even more if I can curl it naturally rather than using curling tongs! So I thought I would try this little spray that claims ‘Beach Matte Mermaid Look’ and I when I was reading the bottle I thought “Oooh how interesting!”.
Initially what led me to buying this was 1. The design of the bottle (haha I love nicely designed bottles and such!) and 2. The promise of ‘beachy waves’ so I thought why not lets give it a go! Now were are past the descriptive part lets move on to the review part…
The spray itself smells lovely, it’s obviously salt spray as it states on the front of the bottle and I know sometimes salt spray can dry out your hair but this spray doesn’t do that, my hair feels super soft afterwards still! Further to this the spray is light and works with a blow dryer or just spraying and going outdoors and letting the wind do its business, so I’d say it was a good buy 🙂
Okay so I never use to really care about my hair until a certain stage in my life when I really enjoyed styling and spending time on my hair looking nice. Now it is a constant regime and I need to always make sure I find some really good shampoos and conditioners to use on my hair, ones which will not make them greasy or to fine.
So I thought I would share my top 5 favourite shampoos I have tried and love still and see what you think!
Aussie Colour Mate/Beach Mate/Miracle Moist
This brand has always allured me to it! If it wasn’t so expensive I would buy the whole range…I love this brand because all of the shampoos I have tried all smell so delightful and beautiful. Not only do these products by Aussie smell good the shampoos really work and they make my hair feel so much more clean and nicer afterwards as well as using quality ingredients!
VO5 Plump It Up
Well if you saw my blog post about a week ago it was on the VO5 Plump Me Up shampoo I purchased. I love it because it feels like my hair actually has some volume to it (I have fine hair!) and its weightless as well meaning it doesn’t feel overly bulky or leave residue in your hair afterwards.
Lee Stafford Poker Straight
Now this was one of the first ‘designer’ salon sort of shampoos I tried in my teenage years, the bottle was party pink and everything lured me towards it the description, the colour and definitely the smell! There’s many reasons why this is on my list, for starters it’s not as expensive as you may believe and it is reasonably cheap for a salon designer shampoo, secondly it smells amazing! and thirdly it makes your hair less frizzy – so a definite win!
Herbal Essences Uplifting Volume
Like I said I have fine hair which can be a pain sometimes, however very rarely I come across a shampoo which actually does what it says and gives an uplifting weightless look, till I tried this one!
Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil And Creamy Aloe
When I was at university I couldn’t afford the good stuff 😦 So after some looking around in some other beauty and hair shops I found this, it was different and I thought it would give my hair a boost and revitalize it a little! The formula is not too thick, smells good and cleans hair thoroughly not to mention it always made my hair soft as well which I loved! Also great if you want to try and grow your hair as well 🙂
I am really fussy when it comes to my hair, I have tried a thousand different hair care products since my early teens things like overnight creams, serums, leave on masks, gels, hairsprays, conditioners and shampoos. It’s very rare that actually find something that I like and it works, so I decided to write a blog post on my latest hair care buys because I love them! 🙂
Schwarzkopt Got2B 2 Sexy Big Volume Push Up Volumizing Hairspray Now this hairspray is one of my favourites and for a good reason, unlike other hairsprays it is not overly thick and heavy, it is pretty weightless and makes your hair feel like it has no hairspray in at all but still keeps the style which is great!
Another high point of this hairspray is that is smells AMAZING! It smells like a mixture of strawberries and raspberries and I love it. Although for a can of hair spray it is quite expensive (Usually more than £2.50 but less than £5 in different places) but its worth it if you want good looking hair.
VO5 Plump It Up Shampoo
VO5 has always been a brand of shampoo that I have always quite admired and that is because I think they produce some damn good shampoo’s and conditioners! I brought this one the other day because I really wanted a good shampoo that uplifted my hair and made it more stronger and also voluminous. Many hair care brands promise to make your hair more bouncy, stronger, luscious and such but hardly any actually produce such a good product which does what it says. but this one does exactly what it states and that’s why I love it. Not only does it give body and boost for fine or flat looking hair it also has heat defence which is perfect for me as I use straighteners or curlers a lot! I noticed my hair was fuller and more thicker after using it just once the first time so it’s a definite win 🙂
