A Volumising Hair System That Works?

22 April, 2015

I’m not usually one to enter in to products that make claims about thickening, toning, firming or whatever, but I tried the Volumising Dry Shampoo by Swell and I was more than impressed, so I decided to give their three-step system a go and share the results (if any) on here… For reference, my hair is normal/fine – very soft but occasionally dull. I like lots of volume, lots of body and tonnes of texture! I wasn’t expecting to see…

A Hair Haul.

24 March, 2015

It’s been a long while since I bought any new beauty products, but my haircare routine has become almost non-existent lately. My fine, flat locks have been in desperate need of a bit of volumising action, I headed straight to Feel Unique to sort me out… I’m a huge fan of Sachajuan; a Swedish brand that use their own patented ‘Ocean Silk Technology’ in each of their products.

This smells delicious (I loooove…

Looking For Hairspiration.

25 November, 2014

A trip to the hairdressers requires a bit of research and pre-planning, I tend to search the internet looking for inspiration for a new ‘do. I like to be prepped with at least a photo when I head in, probably because I’m horrendous at describing anything… Usually I head straight for the hair boards on Pinterest, searching through my own and any other pins I can find until I have an idea of what I want, and then go from…
