Hair Care

7X-9xO46.jpg

Are you ready for a SAXXYūüé∑ JAZZ-y review about haircare products that I had¬†delivered to me YONKS ago courtesy of ‘Harmony Life‘?

Harmony Life are sponsors of Beauty Bae. They regularly send me stuff to try out in return for an honest review.

If you’ve followed me since the beginning of the year, you’ll remember¬†that I posted about them, mentioning that I’ll be trying Hair Jazz out and tell ya’ll how I’m finding it months later. Well, umm, here I am telling you about it.

Strap yourself in, enjoy the wonderful journey where you won’t be moving anywhere – just – umm – move your eyes and fingertips at least or else you’ll miss it…

Although I have been using Olaplex and regularly cutting my hair (because bleach really damaged it), I can actually say that Hair Jazz is a saving Grace (Kelly – #MIKA).

Honestly, my hair looks so much less homeless since I’ve been using it, and it’s actually started growing faster. I have been getting it trimmed regularly though (every 8-10 weeks). I’m trying to regain my hair’s optimum health, but my hair grows considerably in that time – due to Hair Jazz.

I’ve used¬†Biotin supplements in the past, and I’ve raved about SugarBearHair¬†too, but I do think that these work better imo – simply because there is no risk of them affecting your moods, bodily hair growth and/or hormones.

HAIR JAZZ ‚Äď CAPABLE OF¬†INCREASING¬†HAIR GROWTH BY UP TO 3 TIMES ITS NORMAL RATE

Normally, hair grows up to 1 to 1.5 centimeters per month. Active ingredients in HAIR JAZZ shampoo and conditioner helps to increase the rate of hair growth such that hair grows up to to 3-4.5 centimeters per month. You will see the first results after just two months

BENEFITS OF HAIR JAZZ:

  1. HAIR JAZZ makes your hair stronger;
  2. Your hair will become softer and shinier;
  3. Proven efficiency on all hair types;
  4. A visible reduction in hair loss;
  5. Your hair will grow up to 3 times faster.

The price, like Atomic Kitten’s tide is: HIGH! I mean, ¬£56 for a shampoo and conditioner is a little ‘burn-a¬†hole in your pocket and Natwest bank card so you’ll have no option but to call the Fire Brigade’-esque, but alas – it was FREE so I trialled¬†it.

When the products arrived, I was happy that they were BIG and full-sized. So, although you’re paying ¬£56, ¬†you’re getting lots of product. In the box, I found two 250m bottles of conditioner and shampoo with an added bonus of a hair mask tub.

Prior to trying it, I read that people who suffered from hair loss used it and were happy with the results – but complained about the price (which I agree with) and the scent.

To be honest, I don’t care about how something smells… Smell¬†isn’t the be-all-and-end-all of life. Of course, if it smelled really off putting, I wouldn’t go near it – but what’s a chemically/medicinal smell going to do? I’m not going to apply it and walk out with it reeking am I?

It’s not fragrant, but it’s certainly not pungent. I love a good punning gent ūüėČūüíĖūüĒ•ūü¶Ąūü¶Ź (#MyABSOLUTEFavourite), but I’m not a fan of¬†PUNGENT smells.

Anyway, I’ve yet to suffer from hair loss so I can’t really comment… But, those that did or have, who’ve also tried it, said it helps. So, yeah – that’s a good sign.

My verdict? I like the amount of product in the packaging, I also like that I don’t have to use a lot of the product. For example, I usually have to wash my hair every couple of days, but with this one, I can go three days without washing it. This is so much better for the hair because over-washing¬†causes hair loss and thinning in the long run (unless you’re Usaine Bolt, then – short sprint).

I’ll tell you what I wasn’t quinoad¬†on… The retail price and conditioner. The conditioner didn’t apply easily. Honestly, it was very thick and hard to blend evenly root-to-tip. Also, the fact that the bottle suggests you¬†should only apply the shampoo on your scalp is a bit weird… Like, who do they think I am, Phil Mitchell?! How’s the rest of my hair going to get cleaned?

Things I didn’t really care about: the smell.

Differences that I noticed or didn’t notice: my hair was easier to style, but then again, it could just be because I’ve been taking a lot more care in my hair recently… Olaplex, less hair styling and regular trims definitely seem to be working. I do think that Hair Jazz has¬†added to that though. Also, I did notice, as I said, my hair grew about an inch longer than usual – which in itself is good.

Overall, this was a pretty good product. I just don’t think the cost is effective and I don’t think the results are worth that high of a price; only because I’m sure there’ll be something cheaper that works in the same way.

Having said that, it is good and I didn’t encounter¬†any problems… For instance, I didn’t go bald, get an allergic reaction or anything crazy like that.

It did help, just not ¬£56 worth of ‘help’.

I’m excited. I’ve just signed up to a¬†monthly subscription of GLOSSYBOX!

I covered it in a previous blog post, expressed interest but didn’t know if I was going to go through with it because I wasn’t sure¬†if I was going to like all of the products that they send over every month. However, I just decided to go through with it and place an order, I’m sure I’ll enjoy what I get sent, and will be sure to blog¬†about the products afterwards.

I’ve seen a few of you ladies have a subscription with GLOSSYBOX, how are you finding the samples? I know everybody’s different and each box is customised, but you must know if you like the stuff that’s getting sent to you each month, no?

Also, I’m guessing they send out special gift boxes on our birthdays because why else would they ask for it, right? What sort of stuff have they put in yours previously?

In other news, my long awaited Hair Jazz post is coming next week. I will be doing a TeaMi tea one as well soon, I’ve just been too busy to give it a go – but I’m working on it…

Right, your follicles need to try the best high street hair colour to ever be invented since the day the person who personifies their slogan was born.

I love red hair on myself. It all started in the days when Cheryl Tweedy rocked it. #BlackCherry – I don’t blame you for having to do a ‘360’ (number of shade) take.

Yeah, I kinda, sorta rocked it too… Picture BALOO. Yes, three out of four of us had¬†red hair here (2013/4), but I’m the one on the far right. This was right before we set up our girlband: ‘Chiquitito, Tell Me (You’re Hungry and) You’d Like A Burrito‘#SortOfLikeMammaMia #ButAlsoKindOfNot…

Umm… What else is there to say other than my hair shined, glossed, looked extremely healthy and less homeless-looking? Result.

The price is affordable and the conditioner/shampoo that it comes with ‘Royal Jelly’¬†is the most perfect shampoo I’ve ever used. Putting the majestic and regal in ROYAL JELLY!

L’Or√©al needs to stock¬†full-sized bottles of the stuff, I’d use it forever. So, if you’re reading this L’Or√©al, help a girl out!

Right, I’ve got two more posts to write… This was my favourite though, still.

I had never heard of Lisap until the end of 2016… I went to cut my hair at a newly discovered hairdresser, and the game was well and truly changed.

It’s a leave-in spray for the hair that moisturises and revitalises it – leaving it soft, shiny and very healthy/nourished looking. Truth be told, the only other reason besides cutting it, brushing it and using Olaplex –¬†that my hair has been looking less homeless – is because of this. I can honestly say it’s helped my hair a lot. Split ends are a thing of the past.

Lisap – as far as I know – is an Italian brand. When they’re not making love, cooking pizza or pasta, they’re manufacturing¬†this and hosting family get togethers and OD’ing on¬†cannolis! #Bellissimo #CaioBella

The good thing about this is you can spray it on wet or dry hair and even use it before styling, so it’s multi-purpose. Also, I did notice that some sprays I’d used in the past stripped my hair from the colour, this one makes it more vibrant. The colour stays shinier and brighter for longer. Ladies, or gents, you need this!

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?)…
