My favourite hair care products for luscious locks!

Hello everyone! This week I'm blogging about my favourite hair care products! These are all products I have used for a long time and have trialled and stuck with for the last few years.  My mothers a hair dresser so they are more high end products sold in the salon more than the supermarket shelves.  These products are all items my mother uses regularly on her customers of many different hair types.  

Some important notes to take in before we roll on with this blog post is that I wash my hair every second evening.  I also have very long curly hair which is quite natural in colour with only a small amount of highlights.  My hair is also quite knotty and these are just products I have found that work with my hair and these may not be ideal for others with hair different to mine. 


The first items I use on a regular basis are my Biolage colour last shampoo and conditioner.  I have quite knotty long hair and the conditioner is great at getting those pesky birds nests out.  It also leaves my hair soft and quite light weight which I do struggle to achieve with other shampoos and conditioners as my hair is so thick.  It is also still fantastic to use if your hair is not coloured as mine is very natural in colour at the moment and it still works as great as when I was bleach blonde.


These next two products, Matrix Biolage Keratindose and Marix oil wonders Amazonian MuruMuru I use after my shower.  I put a small pump of each through wet hair with my hands focusing on the ends in particular after washing my locks.  I use the keratin cream mostly for knots while the oil for shine and together they help a lot with my hairs health and softness.


My next product is my go to dry shampoo from Batiste . This is honestly a life saver.  My hair can get quite greasy and this makes my day two hair look like it's been freshly washed.  I just spray it through the roots of my hair quite generously and then ruffle it through with my fingers and voila! Clean hair! 

I also use the Joico Silk Result on my hair when I straighten it to protect it from the heat.  I have found it has been really effective with my hairs health and makes it smell really nice and feel really soft!  It has also lasted forever! I've had it for about four years.  Although I do admit I barely ever straighten my hair! I'm too lazy! But the odd time I do I feel like it really helps protect it from harsh straightening and curling.

Next is the Matrix curl wonder! This stuff is sea salt spray and I apply this too my hair when I have beachy waves in! (Actually every day, my natural hair is beachy waves). It makes my curls look a little fuller and defined while controlling the frizz! Just spray a few times and ruffle it though your hair for more defined curls! 

So those are my go to products! I hoped this was interesting and helped those in need for a few fresh products for their hair or those just simply interested in what products work and are out there!

Thank you,
See you until next time,

Nutrimetics Mineral Masque review!

Hey guys!

I have been using a mask religiously for the last couple years that I thought I would share with you. I have only tried a few masks around but have definitely found the Nutrimetics Mineral Clay Masque the best.  It has really helped me clear my skin as it is quite acne proned and I can really tell when I haven't used it for a while.  I usually apply it once a week for about 20 minutes all over my clean face and a bit down my neck and then wash it off with a flanalette and some warm water.  I then follow up with a toner and a moisturiser.  This pattern seems to have worked the best for me as when I use it to often my skin can get quite dry and if I use it less than once a week I tend to start to break out.




 I highly recommend it for any skin type and for anyone looking for a good mask.  It is very affordable and honestly lasts forever! I've had the same 50ml packet for about two years and have used it every week for the last 6 or so months and quite a often for the year or so before that and only just starting to run a bit low.

See you until next time!

WHERE HAVE I BEEN!

Wow! Things have been busy lately! I'm sorry for abandoning you!  The last few weeks have been very busy for me I've had school mock exams, several assignments,  a paper run twice a week as well as working my saturday job, riding my horse, doing competitions, getting the flue, teaching a dance class as part of a school assignment and attempting to maintain a social life in addition to making time for my boyfriend and my family.  

WOW IT'S BEEN A LOT!

I'm so glad I only have about 33 days left of school! I'm then done with school forever! I'm so happy as I'm not exactly extatic about going to school and never have been.  So that is fantastic.  We also had our first pony club rally of the new season tonight which went well and it was a lot of fun to catch up with everyone.  Christmas, the end of the year and then France is all going to come up very quickly I suspect.  

I have also been catching up with one of my best friends Grace the last few day as she is over visiting from Austalia for a few days. So that has been lovely.  I personally love spending time with my freinds especially ones I haven't seen in a while. I always find it really refreshing and it's so great to catch up.  So I challenge you, whoever is reading this to after liking and commenting on this post ;) to go and make an effort to reconnect or talk to one of your friends you may have not seen or spoken to in a while.  Even if it's just flicking a text or an email, it might suprise you and after all old friends are always the best friends. 

I hope you are doing well! See you next time! 

See you soon, Megan :)
