Hair Care

Here’s something you never thought you’d see on this blog… A haircare routine.

Ya gal Sacha is about to run you through her haircare routine!

Strap yourself in! Here we gooooo!

Kevin Murphy: Hydrate Me (‘mii) Shampoo

The Tina Turner of all shampoos, because it’s: Simply The Best. Let’s face (or in this case: hair follicle) it, I’ve never had the greatest hair, but with this – I’m well on my way. This has no parabens in it, so it’s 100% natural and doesn’t damage or strip the hair of its moisture/colour. It also smells like chocolate orange. So, my hair definitely smells good.

I’ve reviewed this bad boii before, #TBT or #FBF or #SBS to the brilliance. Still good, never better.

Coco & Eve: Virgin Hair Mask

I’m still a virgin, so this works, and is very apt. Thanks. #SUBS❤️

Argan Oil Hair Treatment Oil

A very recent post, but still golden. #TBT, #FBF, #SUBS!

If you’re wondering what #SUBS is: #SummonUpBackSaturday – won’t ever catch on, but it’s worth a try to my two (maximum) readers.

Hi, mum and bro!

Post-Wash Hair Treatment

1) Wet-brush with comb.

B) Dry with Microfibre towel. They’re better for hair than cotton towels. But, we all know that heated towels are the upper echelon of all towels. Those towels are HOT!

Si) Curl with Remington Heated Rollers (another cheeky #SUBS😍).

I’m forever calling them ‘tongs’ because: ‘songs’ with a lisp, apparently!

Hellooooooo, Argan Oil.

It’s ya gal, Susanne! How’s it going? Top, middle and bottom of the morning to YOUS!

I’m back to write up a quick blog post on Argan Oil or as my brother calls it, ‘Orang-utan Oil’.

My hair’s been drier than Africa in the middle of a drought season, so- gimme the Argan Oil Hair Treatment Oil.

Argon Oil Hair treatment has been specially formulated using the oil from the fruit of the Argon Tree and enriched with vitamin E, a natural anti-oxidant to nourish and rejuvenate dry and damaged hair. This concentrated formula will help protect the hair whilst adding shine and reducing frizz. 

Slicker than an OIL STRAND!

Do I like using it?

It stinks, not going to lie. But, it’s not as sticky as Castor Oil and actually does the trick. A little goes a long way too, because I don’t fancy looking like I haven’t washed my hair in a few weeks. Especially when I wash it three times a week… (Sometimes more)

What does Argan Oil do?

Argan Oil strengthens the hair, restores its elasticity and makes it look shiny, sleek and healthy.

When’s the best time to use it?

The best time to apply Argan Oil is after finishing from the shower and towel drying your hair. Alternatively, you can apply a bit on dry hair – just one pump because it might get too greasy.

Does it work?

Short answer: “yes.”

Long answer: “of course it does, I use it every day almost. It really benefits my hair, I’ve seen a real difference – particularly in hair thickness. I felt like my hair was finer before I started using it. I do believe it works. It does do the job. I recommend it, for sure. Absolutely. Cannot recommend anything better. It’s sensational. In fact, buy some and use some because you won’t and can’t go wrong. How can you? It’s Argan Oil. Argan Oil is great. Y’know? Give it a whirl, a twirl and a curl. It’s. Argan. Oil. Buy. It. Use. It. Thanks.”

Glad we cleared that up.

Our PROluxe Heated Rollers come as a 20-piece set containing heated clips that have been specially designed to leave your hair kink-free after styling. Each roller also features Grip Technology, allowing you to style without frustration. And the handy compact case not only makes the rollers easy to store, it also heats them up whilst inside. We’ve really left no curl unturned in our search for perfection.

Heated rollers are a girl’s best friend, aren’t they?

After almost 28 years of living, I’ve begun getting bored of not doing anything with my hair. I’m still lazy, tho. So, I won’t get a straightener or curler out… Instead, I’ll Remington it.

They heat up in 20 mins, to an adjustable temperature.

How it works:

Wrap your hair around the rollers and then clip in place. Once they cool down, take them out and work your fingers through to smoothen and loosen the curls. Perfect.

My favourite part about using these heated rollers is that I literally don’t have to do anything apart from insert them into my hair. They do all the work for me!

Do I think you should give them a go? Yes.

Why?

Because they’re less damaging than a GHD. The temperature of these Remington heated rollers don’t go up as high as GHDs, but they still do the job.

There you have it, I will be rocking the Curly Sue look for the foreseeable.

PantenePantene Pro V

Another day, another blog! This time I’m coming at you LIVE, reviewing Pantene Pro V: Repair & Protect.

So, as you know, I applied almond oil on my hair a few days ago. Truth be told I’ve been washing my hair every day since trying to get it out of my hair entirely. This has finally done the trick, after using it once.

I used it a while back and loved it, but have since been having to use a sulfate-free one for a while. Alas, the sulfate-free ones seem to be making my scalp produce more oils than usual.

There you go, if you want a shampoo and conditioner that doesn’t dry out your hair nor make it excessively oily, use this.

My hair feels soft, and silky. Give it a go!

This shampoo is particularly great for over heat-styled or bleached hair.

RevitaLash

Conditioning, revitalising and beautifying, RevitaBrow Advanced enhances the look of even sparse, over-plucked eyebrows with dramatic – but believable – effect. Starring a proprietary blend of scientifically-advanced technology and natural botanicals, this daily treatment promotes strand strength, resilience and suppleness – minimising likelihood of breakage, and addressing the visual signs of eyebrow ageing, stress and fragility. High impact BioPeptin Complex – a cocktail of peptides and botanicals – saturates each hair with moisture, while the convenient doe-foot applicator permits fast and precise application (men can also use it to enhance the appearance of sideburns, moustaches and beards); just apply directly along clean, dry eyebrows every morning or evening, and allow to dry thoroughly before applying any pencil or pomade. Et voila!

Howdy partners!

I’m back for the second time in one day to bring you a review on RevitaLash – a lash growing and lengthening conditioner (which I’d researched in detail before purchasing).

The story behind this product is that a doctor invented this for his wife after she lost all her hair whilst tragically battling cancer.

What is RevitaLash?

This is a natural conditioner that regrows the lashes and lengthens those already there…

How does it work?

You apply it like mascara or lash primer (twice a day) and watch your lashes grow and/or get longer over time.

Those who know me in real life know that I have pretty lengthy lashes, but they’ve been getting quite patchy recently (even though I’ve never worn fake lashes).

So, I’ve been on the lookout to lengthen my lashes and grow new ones in place of the gaps…

I bought it via Amazon for £45. (I know!) But, in my mind – it costs around the same for an LVL treatment which you do once and can’t maintain.

Whereas, with RevitaLash, you can apply it as many times as you want – and it’s a gradual, more natural treatment.

I have booked an LVL treatment for next week, but I am reluctant to actually get it done as I’ve read quite a lot of reviews of those who get it done who say some lashes fall out.

I’m notorious for booking appointments for stuff like this and never going through with it out of nerves and paranoia from reading bad reviews online.

The fact that people have mentioned their lashes have fallen off is the main reason why I’ve never tinted, applied false or even curled my lashes… I am scared as heck! My lashes are my most prized feature.

I’m one of those people that literally just lets them exist on my face for as long as they like, and when one falls on my cheek, it’s usually my mum who picks it up and asks me to “‘make a wish!” …

Alas, I’ve made so many wishes on so many lashes that I’m starting to think they were all rogue nostril hairs.

So, I don’t know whether to invest in another RevitaLash bottle – ’cause I did notice a difference, or bite the bullet and get LVL done… It’s the same price and they last relatively the same length of time – one is just more natural and gradual than the other, and is more DIY too.
