Hair Care

NATURTINT

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

HairBurst: Hearts

If you follow my blog consequtively, you’d know that I blogged about SugarBearHair earlier on in the year…

Now, I live in the U.K. and I haven’t got the money to spend on extortionate international shipping costs just to have something shipped from the States to here!

So, although I agree that SugarBearHair worked for me, it’s not feasible to keep purchasing it from America. Instead, I’ve got my hands on the next best thing… HairBurst Hearts.

Hairburst Chewable Gummies are an easy way to ensure you are taking the essential vitamins to maintain healthy, faster hair growth. We created this product for people who find it hard to swallow tablets. So now everyone can have the benefits that hairburst adds to your body. The yummy strawberry and blackcurrant flavour will want you taking more than just 2 tablets per day but please stick to the recommended 2 per day.

Hairburst provides a different approach to hair maintenance, a professional product that works from the inside out. The tasty new way to improve your hair.

Hairburst is designed to combat the negative impact of poor nutrition, hair products, age and genetics so start your journey with hairburst today and fall in love with your hair.

These strawberry flavoured chewy hair supplements aren’t bad. They are used by some of the Made in Chelsea stars and have been proven to grow and strengthen the hair – leaving strong, glossy and healthy tresses.

I ventured into Holland and Barrett, my favourite shop on the high street, and purchased these bad boys when they were on ‘buy one and get the other half price’. I love a good bargain and have yet to see a bad one…

I’ve been using them for a month now and I can actually confirm that my hair has grown a little. I mean, split ends doesn’t and will never take away from the fact that it’s grown, right?

I’m going to be honest, if I hadn’t had tried SugarBearHair, I wouldn’t know what to compare these (HairBurst) to, so I probably would’ve said they taste good. However, when you’ve had a taste of something good, you won’t want to go back to the mediocre, would you? HairBurst don’t taste bad as such, kinda  like powdered strawberry… They’re just not as delicious as SugaBearHair.

The packaging of HairBurst is pretty cute but it’s no SugarBearHair. The mane things I love about HairBurst (oh, come on!) is the fact that it’s cheaper than SugarBearHair, is heart shaped (I love love) and shows slight results for the duration that I used it.

According to the HairBurst website, the HairBurst tablets/capsules (in white packaging) used in conjunction with the brand’s shampoo and conditioner gives better and faster results. So, if you’re in need of a faster and better way to grow your hair, choose that route instead.

Still, taking this all into account, if you get the opportunity to purchase SugarBearHair’s gummies over HairBurst chews, take it because I still believe they’re better. With SugarBearHair, I noticed more of a difference in hair growth, the taste of the blueberries and creaminess of the gummy bears together with the light blue (my favourite colour) ribbon around the lid makes it my winner.

However, by all means try both and let me know your thoughts. Happy hair growing (even though I’m going to sadly be getting mine cut in the New Year).

New year, new you!

😘
