Color Wow Kale Cocktail bionic tonic 200ml | secondblonde

I was so happy to have been sent these new Color Wow products thanks to Imagination PR which I’ve been playing around with and finally got round to share my thoughts with you guys. These new hair cocktails are such a fun way to apply a “bond reinforcing” product to your hair.

You may have already watched me talk about these fantastic new colour wow products on my YouTube Channel

The whole range of cocktails are leave-in bond building supplements formulated for colour treated hair. Depending on which one you use they either strengthen, thicken, renew elasticity, retain suppleness, protect and prevent further damage. You can even mix them together like you would a cocktail for what your hair needs. I’ve been using the Kale Cocktail for my processed fine/prone to breakage hair for a few weeks and I absolutely LOVE it!

The Proudct The Kale cocktail is a bionic tonic which contains sulphur rich sea kale known to help reinforce hair vital bonds. It also contains protein building amino acid and vitamin B which works in one single application. The Kale cocktail can be mixed with the coconut or the carb cocktail for when your hair may need an extra hydrating or body building boost! You must shake before use and for best results the product is accelerated and enhanced when heat is applied.

The Promise The kale Cocktail promises to reinforce hair bonds and strengthen each strand. Detangle hair, help reduce further breakage and help guard against UV ray’s.

My Verdict I’ve been applying a small amount (of shaken not stirred product) to towel dried hair mid lengths to ends combed through then styled as normal with my hair dryer. On work day’s I do apply hair irons too to smooth out my crash helmet kinks. The consistency is light and milky and easy to apply, it’s not sticky and smells really fresh and pleasant to use. When my hair is dry/styled it doesn’t feel like I have any product in it (which is a good thing) however there is a noticeable difference in how my hair hairs/looks/feels. It instantly looks healthier, feels stronger and is soft and smooth to touch without being fluffy.

Summary I love this product so much and have already recommended it to a few friends. My husband who’s a hair colourist – you can check him out here has also started using it on some of his clients post colouring services. I will definitely re-purchase this product however in the meantime I will experiment with the coconut and carb cocktails too!

You can pick them up at a John Frieda hair salon or online here £22 Have you tried these or any other products from the Color Wow range?

*2 Minutes

So we all know that eating a balanced diet of healthy foods including “good fats” is the way forward. Did you know that there are 9 foods that you should be eating on a weekly basis to aid younger brighter skin and slow down premature ageing and here’s why!

1.Avocado (the king of instagram #foodporn) High in Vitamin E which is a skin saviour. A healthy fat that lowers cholestrol and great for keeping your joints supple. Helps to prevent premature ageing of your skin and damage to your DNA.

2.Fruit (avoid sugar loaded tropical fruits) High in Vitamin C to promote a healthy glow, our bodies do not store Vitamin C so the more you can eat the better.

3.Berries Bursting with Antioxidants which have a positive effect on slowing down your skins ageing process supporting collagen formation keeping your skin nice and plump.

4.Dark Chocolate (85% cocoa) Cocoa is very high in oxidants helping to protect skin from harmful UV effects, eat moderately and always choose organic.

5.Tomatoes Contain lycopene which has been proven to be anti-ageing to the skin.

6.Fish Fresh Oily cold water fish is the best source of omega-3 a fatty acid which supports healthy skin and immune function.

7.Coconut (the dharling of instagram) The health benefits are endless (another blog post right there) however when talking of the benefits on your skin for eating coconut this medium chain fatty acid has been shown to significantly increase skin elasticity and decreased wrinkling of the skin.

8.Green Tea An antioxidant which has anti-cancer properties and aids weight loss, highly effective on our skins complexion and overall good health.

9.Leafy Green Veg Acting like an edible elixir of youth! Benefits to our skin colouration in a way that others find attractive, also another anti-cancer ingredient. Two great reasons to pile your plate high with spinach, broccoli or kale.

What are you going to add to your weekly shop this week?
