Wella SP LUXE OIL 30ml – A Reconstructive Elixir For Hair

I was so happy when my lovely friends at Wella Uk sent me this little bottle of hair magic to try! It smells deliciously sweet and reminds me of summer. The consistency is light and non-greasy, perfect for my fine one length straight bob which is coloured and tends to become static at times due to lack of moisture…

IMG_8327.JPGI apply two small pumps (for my short hair it’s plenty) in the palm of my hands, rub together then apply evenly to my pre-washed damp hair from mid-length to ends taking care not to touch the roots. Then blow dry/style as normal and voilà…

My hair is easier to manage, it looks luxuriously healthy and shiny without looking like I’ve got product in it. My hair feels natural to touch (which I like) and not oily, it doesn’t weigh my hair down.

This product is simply perfect for my hair type and the smell is very subtle when it’s in your hair. You will experience a little hint of it when you swish your hair!
(LOVE IT)

IMG_8326.JPGHere’s the science bit:

Enriched with a blend of 3 precious and luxurious oils, Luxe Oil leaves the hair up to 10 times smoother with triple the amount of Keratin protection than a regular conditioning treatment.

Argan Oil, often referred to as Èliquid goldÉ, is renowned for its nutritive, cosmetic and medicinal qualities on hair, Almond Oil offers superior hydrating and lightweight properties to the hair and Jojoba Oil works wonders on fragile and dry ends. Using a reconstructive Transform Technology, Luxe Oil benefits the hair from the inside out whilst protecting the natural Keratin.

The small molecules of Luxe OilÉs nourishing formula penetrate deeply into the hair to lock in moisture and strengthen from the inner cuticle, whilst the oil forms a protective layer around each individual hair to protect against damage, repairing every strand so even damaged hair is noticeably smoother.

This multi-purpose oil elixir offers 8 amazing uses as it smoothes, softens, protects, defines, illuminates, repairs and reconditions the hair whilst preparing it for colour treatments or styling.

I receive lots of compliments on how soft and shiny my hair is when I’ve applied Luxe Oil Keratin boost. It can also be applied to dry hair if preferred.

Summary
I’ve enjoyed the results of this product it has delivered all of its promises instantly on first application. I will definitely repurchase this product it’s available in 100ml, you can buy at hair salons stocking Wella Professional or online here

The French Riviera in a Bottle

Divine Oil by Caudalie £27

20130120-141917.jpg
I have been using this luxury multi tasking oil on and off for the past 3 months. I use for the body fresh from the shower to lock in moisture and almost create a barrier against the winter elements.

Divine Oil can be used on Hair, body and nails, and can be spritzed in your bath.
It’s a dry oil so it will not overload or feel heavy.

This precious oil is organic and contains Argan oil, sesame oil and hibiscus oil.
It does not contain any parabens (chemicals) or mineral oil and is also silicone free.

As for the scent it is a musky woody perfume which you will LOVE or hate, I love the smell it’s like the French Riviera in a bottle, it’s a Divine blend of two roses, cedar, vanilla, pink pepper with a hint of grapefruit.

During the year of 2012 every bottles purchased = 1 planted tree in the amazon Forrest, estimating a goal of 1500 trees in total so well done Caudalie for supporting a good cause.

Go buy this oil to add a little luxury to your daily routine, you won’t be disappointed it will last for months!

Moroccanoil Extra Volume

Being a very loyal hardcore fan of the trichologist to the stars Philip Kingsley using his Body Building Shampoo and Moisture Balancing Conditioner every day. I have found it virtually impossible to find
anything that comes close.
Introducing Moroccanoil’s volume range of
 shampoo and conditioner.

 The buzz around this brand just keeps growing, I’ve dipped in and out in the past but never that amazed by the results because of my hair
 type (very fine and over processed)
However the results after using the volume shampoo and conditioner were instant, my hair felt soft and looked shiny but wasn’t weighed down. It met all my expectations and smells divine.
 I’ve just found a great compliment to my Philip Kingsley regime, for those summer nights when the argan oil
 and protein will give my hair
an instant boost of moisture.
