Oribe Hair Care Brings Luxury To Everyone

Session stylist Oribe (pronounced Orbay) brings a little luxury to your home hair care. This product range looks so luxurious in your bathroom and feels/smells luxurious. I haven’t purchased the stunning bottles as of yet but been lucky enough to try out some testers.

Sachets of “Signature” Shampoo and Conditioner and “Beautiful Color” Shampoo and conditioner.

The Signature range is rich, weightless and a high performance cleanser great for every day use. Does not contain any parabens and is colour and keratin treatment safe! It smells so gorgeous I can’t explain it you just have to experience it, and it leaves my hair feeling moisturised but not heavy.

The Beautiful Color range extends the life of your hair colour with high tech ingredients. It moisturises and repairs leaving your hair feeling silky and smooth. A great weekly indulgence that smells devine and looks stunning in the bathroom.

Tangles be gone!

If you’ve not already been introduced to this seemingly simple invention then you are missing out! The Tangle Teezer was invented by Shaun Pulfrey a hair colourist (I used to work with Shaun at Vidal Sassoon)

20130721-215322.jpg Shaun famously went before the investors on the TV series Dragons Den in 2007 looking for a £80k investment for 15%, he was knocked back without an investment as the dragons couldn’t see it as a viable business. How wrong we’re they??  To date Tangle Teezer’s are available in over 50 countries with 6 types of brush, and what is amazing that they are used by the professionals too, you will find them in most hair salons.

20130721-220349.jpg My Tangle Teezer is a compact styler in Pink Sizzle, it fit’s perfectly in my hand and has a nifty little removable cover to protect the teeth from fluff/dirt.

20130721-220710.jpgTangle Teezer can be used on wet or dry hair without damage, it glides through my hair like a hot knife to butter! My hair is fine and tangles up very easily while shampooing or when dry. You only need to blow on my hair and it tangles. This tool is AMAZING I’ve had one for years and cannot be without it.

20130721-221117.jpg Great for every day or on the beach, kids and adults love them, they are affordable and come in great colours/designs there’s something for everyone! What’s not to LOVE get yours HERE
P.s did I mention that Tangle Teezer are proud owners of 12 awards. Okay okay I rest my case…go buy one!

This light weight gel moisturiser inject’s life into my “London” underground commuting, traffic polluted skin! Use morning and night and simply massage in for 30 seconds. Mornings I layer with my usual tinted moisturiser. It’ makes a great base as it’s light weight.

20130317-143634.jpgIt’s quite pricey at £46 so watch out as it is easy to use too much due to it’s runny consistency, but worth the fresh glowy out if the shower result!
Oh and it has a subtle orange aroma while you gently work it into your skin.
Available on line at Bliss Spa

Weekly Photo Challenge: Free Spirit

 

 

Image

This is my first photo challenge post and the theme this week is Free Spirit. I chose this self-portrait as it captures a moment of freedom in Turkey

travelling to a nostalgic village, with the sun glaring and a feeling of movement and content.

 A time of rest (no smart phone,no watch) just simply embracing the day!

She’s a Rainbow

I woke up yesterday morning and decided that I wanted rainbow colours in my hair using Renbow’s crazy colour. I gathered some inspiration and put the idea to my husband (and hair colourist)
Tan çakar to think about it and hopefully go ahead and colour my hair later that evening.
Here’s the results.
