As soon as the sun comes out, and the summer dresses find their way back into the wardrobe I really feel the need to step up my hair game. That means scrolling through Pinterest and obssesssing over girls who have the most beautiful mermaid waves. So in a quest to whip my hair into pure summer perfection, I have been testing out a couple of Lee Stafford hair goodies.Continue Reading . . .
It has been a while since I have been able to properly sit down and do anything blog related because my boyfriend and I moved into our first flat together three weeks ago. It has been such an exciting time and we have been on plenty of shopping trips to Ikea, my favourite place ever! I haven’t really been able to blog though because we have only just been able to get our internet installed thanks to problems with the phone line. But now I am back and rest assured I have been using the last few weeks to get my mitts on lots of gorgeous beauty products that I am excited to share with you. So without further ado, here is my review for a great little hair masque from Charles Worthington.
Recently my hair has been in pretty bad condition thanks to heat induced split ends, too much bleach and just being knotty and horrid! It was my birthday at the beginning of September and my sister asked if there was anything I wanted so I mentioned the state of my hair and on my birthday, part of my present from her was the Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Mineral Hair Rescue Masque.
The masque comes in a round tub with a flip lid which makes in great for storage – it is much easier to pile up my tubs of scrubs and body butters in the bathroom that it is to find a home for missions of tubes and bottles! The product is white and fairly thick and it smells fruity, but by no means over powering. The formula contains argan oil, which is everybody’s favourite hair and skin oil right now which adds to the nourishing effect of the masque.
I use the masque just after washing my hair and scoop out a good amount from the tub. I personally chose to concentrate on the bottom two thirds of my hair as my roots can become greasy quickly I try to avoid putting conditioner and masques near my scalp. It says to leave for a minute, but I tend to leave it in just a little bit longer.
After washing the masque out I find that my hair feels really clean and not at all weighed down or greasy like some masques do. I have been using the masque once a week as a deep treatment and I can honestly say that my hair is so much softer and silkier. It no longer looks dry and damaged so I am absolutely thrilled with it! So much so that I went into Boots last week and picked up three more tubs thanks to a 3 for 2 deal.
For just £5.99 I think that the Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Mineral Hair Rescue Masque is a complete steal for the miracle it worked on my straw-like hair. If you are suffering from dry locks I cannot recommend this masque enough. Boots are currently running a buy one get one half price offer on Charles Worthington products if you want a good deal!
What products do you recommend for dry/damaged hair? Have you tried this Charles Worthington masque?
Hair care is an important part of my daily routine, and while I don’t use many products on my hair as it gets greasy very quickly, I have found that a good quality shampoo and conditioner really does make a difference to the look and feel of my hair. For the last month I have been trying out the Hydrate Shampoo and Detangler from the L’ANZA KB2 Keratin Bond range.
Now Autumn has well and truly arrived, and Winter will soon be on its way, it is a really important time to invest in some high quality hair care products. The drop in temperature means that we are not just having to reach for our chunky cable knits but it is essential to update not just your wardrobe but hair care routine too. The colder Autumn air is very drying and leeches moisture from the hair, and putting on the heating is very drying too. With all the moisture being lost from our hair it is important if you want your locks to look luscious you need to replace this lost moisture.
The L’ANZA KB2 range can actually fight the effects of environmental damage using a Keratin Bond 2 Complex that replaces and strengthens the keratin proteins in the hair. It simultaneously uses a luxurious range of botanical ingredients that are enriched with vitamins to revitalise and hydrate dry and damaged hair.
The Shampoo and Detangler smell amazing and really remind me of Aveda products. After applying the shampoo my hair felt instantly cleansed as it lathered quickly and I found that even a small amount was enough to work all the way through my thick, long hair. The Detangler is essentially a conditioner, so don’t expect your hair to be completely knot free! As my hair is so thick I find that it gets knotty really easily and usually a Tangle Teezer is the only thing that can smooth my mane! However the Detangler seriously improved the condition of my hair and eased out some of the tangles in the shower due to the conditioning properties of the product.
Overall I really think that the L’ANZA KB2 Hydrate Shampoo and Detangler has improved the appearance of my hair and I think I have suffered less split ends and hair breakage in the month since I have been using these gorgeous products. If you are interested in updating your hair care routine, you can get your hands on the Hydrate Shampoo for £15.35 and the Hydrate Detangler for £16.50 both from Look Fantastic.
