Hair Care

Ladies,

*(the picture I’ve chosen is somewhat misleading but let’s roll with it)*

I’m thinking of beginning a subscription with GLOSSYBOX

Apparently, for a £10 per month subscription, you’ll receive five premium products sent to you to try for yourself. The best part is that it’s customised for you.

I think it’s a good investment, especially for beauty bloggers or beauty product fanatics.

The only annoying thing is that I hadn’t found out about it a year or so ago! I’d have subscribed with GLOSSYBOX a long time ago if I had known.

I love my music, but I’d easily sit through the adverts on Spotify, if it meant getting five new products to blog about a month… They literally cost around the same price!

I’ve heard that although they give out sample sized products often, they also from-time-to-time send out full-sized ones! Imagine that!

I wish they done one for the lads, tbh… (or do they?)…

Organic, organisms, organ-playing, organ-functioning, whatever it is – everyone loves a good word beginning with “organ”. #Organutan (#DavidAttenborough #LoveIt #IKnowItsSpelledOrangutanButYOLO).

Naturtint is a haircare brand that’s more than just organic. They’re one of the very rare brands who use real plants to form their hair dye colours. Although some form of chemicals have gone into its manufacturing process, it doesn’t include nowhere near as much as ones you’ll find on the high-street!

Naturtint is committed to delivering naturally better hair colourants and has been at the forefront of reducing the amount of chemicals in hair colourants for the last 20 years.

Naturtint’s pioneering newformula is now ‘naturally better’ and enriched with even more natural ingredients to actively and gently care for the health of both your hair and scalp, whilst delivering the best cosmetic results.

I love Naturtint because of its no ammonia content and the shine that it left on my hair. My hair looked luxurious, shiny and less homeless after I’d dye it using Naturtint. I actually felt like I wanted to celebrate my luscious  rich-coloured locks by taking a brush to them!

You know a hair product has won in life when it makes ME of all people want to brush my hair afterwards…

Before discovering Matrix (not the film!), I used to swear by Naturtint because, as I mentioned above, the shine that it gave my hair was unreal! In the words of Joey Essex: “#NAUGHTY!”

The only thing I didn’t like about Naturtint was that the colour didn’t last long… It started fading too soon and my hair lost its healthy look and feel not long after, also. I don’t know if its no-ammonia content is to blame, but my hair did also start to feel dry again after week two.

Look, I don’t want to say that Naturtint itself caused my hair to feel dry because bleach did that. Bleach ruined my hair. I also don’t know if my damaged hair was the cause of why Naturtint’s results (in colour and shine) didn’t last longer than a couple of weeks. So, I don’t want you to take these to heart, and I don’t want it to stop you from trying them if you wanted to.

All in all, aside from the fact that there was no longevity in it for me, I’m sure it’ll be different for you! They’re natural, organic, a very good brand, and have an array of lovely shades to choose from. I love Naturtint and I’d still use it again and again.

You can get yours online or in store at Holland & Barrett, #TheGoodLife.

Are you ready to read about an absolute Godsend of a product for damaged hair?

Olaplex. You may have heard of this beforehand, but do you actually know what it does in detail – well, as much detail as anyone could find if they just typed ‘Olaplex.’ into Google, anyway? 😂

Olaplex was founded by Dean Christal who teamed up with scientist Dr Craid Hawker and Dr Eric Pressly to cook up a new molecule that works from inside the hair strands to strengthen and repair damaged locks where the structure has broken down.

Guys and dolls,

Beauty Bae has an extremely exciting and absolutely amazing announcement! I’m proud to reveal that this blog will soon be sponsored by Harmony Life. Get the party-poppers out, lovers!  🎉

That lovely lot over at Harmony Life are sending me products to try in exchange for an honest review! 😍

Harmony Life chose to sponsor Beauty Bae because it’s “interesting” and “has a large following”. They’ll be featuring my blog posts on their Instagram and Facebook pages to over 40,000 followers, whilst keeping me in their Bloggers Circle! 😭☺️👍👏

This is the moment I thank all of you for reading, for commenting, for LIKING and interacting. You’re all LEGENDS! You’re all FAMILY (until we do a DNA test and find out otherwise). 💔 We’ll still be sisters/brothers, regardless!

However, my first post as a sponsoree (if that’s even a word) of Harmony Life will be published in a few months because it’ll focus on ‘Hair Jazz‘ (a lengthening  haircare line). According to the website, we should allow three months of continuous and consistent use before seeing maximum results – so I’m going to do as they say.

I’m so excited to try Hair Jazz because, as you may know, I’ve started 2017 somewhat bald (and broke) after my hairdresser trimmed* 65% of my hair off because it had gotten damaged by bleach.

*CHOPPED OFF

At the moment, my hair is up to my shoulders in length but it was halfway down my back prior to getting it cut after Christmas… So, now is the time we put those party-poppers away and get those violins out, sweethearts… Let’s all play our best renditions of Für Elise as we mourn the loss of my luscious albeit spilt-ended locks! 🎻😭

Love & light,

Miamii xxx
