why professional over highstreet? (hair care)

As a hairdresser i get asked a lot about the best shampoo's you can buy in a high street store! and my answer to that? NONE.
I always advise my clients to go for professional shampoo. Most of the time the response we get is " but high street brands are a lot cheaper" and yes there is a reason for that...they are full of crap! i wont go into the science part but they have a lot of  harsh chemicals in them that do nothing good for your locks!. You are basically pouring plastic on your hair, alot of the cheaper brands have a lot of silicone's in them, which might lead you to think that its making your hair lovely and soft, but your just coating it and not actually, cleansing your hair ...so then it gets greasy and itchy quick?... i wonder why!

 We do not recommend professional products to gain the money, we actually care about your hair!
they don't have the harsh chemicals in them that the cheaper brands have in. If you colour your hair they don't strip it out! professional keeps the colour vibrancy and longevity! so you don't have to get it done as often as if you are using the right products! ( I'm not talking about root re- growth, just fading).
Your going to a salon spending a fair bit of money on your hair for you to then go home and wash it a few days later in high street brands....you are literally washing away what you have spent! and will then most likely come back to say that's is faded quickly?!.

Professional shampoos are a bit more pricey but they last twice as long, they cleanse your hair, keep your colour fresher for longer and keeps it nourished and looking beautiful! (that's want we want right?!)
You will probably use twice as much, therefore having to buy it on alot more of a regular basis if  you are using high street brands, where as stick to professional and it will last sooo much longer as you have to use very little!
Here's an example of a few well known brands but to avoid!
Pantene  - its like glue! full of silicone's, just coating and coating your hair and scalp!
Head and Shoulders - will definitely strip your hair colour
Tresemme' - dries your hair out and strips colour
Dove - full of silicone's to coat your hair.....you get the picture!

Remember we are not here to sell, we want you hair looking lovely, just as though you have walked out of the salon!
If you go to the salon and get your hair coloured, i definitely recommend a shampoo they use that's compatible for the colour brand they use!



Trust me you hair will thank you for it!

Happy hair day!

Zoella splash botanics range

I have been meaning to write this post ever since the splash botanics products launched! but i am FINALLY getting round to doing it!
 i absolutely love all of the ranges Zoella brings out, she never disappoints me with what she brings out! but this range seemed to of caught my attention a lot more, first of all can we just appreciate the packing?! It is just insanely beautiful and its right up my street as I'm obsessed with the palm and monstera leaf prints at the moment! Botanical is very much in right now for summer! and i feel like this range just seems really adult like should i say?! it definitely has more of a grown up feel to it!


 The new range you get:

the botanic eau' body mist -This is sooo different to what she has ever released before but it definitely has a 'summer vibes' scent to it. Its very fresh and floral! its a great price too at just £8! and i love the bottle!

so soft lip oil- I'm really into my lip oils at the moment! and this one smells of cher…

Sanctuary spa wet skin moisture miracle review

I really like sanctuary products and when i saw this i was really intrigued as to how it would work. here in the UK we are currently having a rather long heatwave! which I'm not complaining about but i don't know about you guys, i love moisturising after my bath but in this heat you don't want to feel any type of stickiness once you have cooled down from a nice bath or shower! so this is when i thought i would give this a go its the wet skin moisture miracle it says on the front  'super quick and hard working body lotion that locks in twice the moisture, up to twice as fast. The easiest and quickest and most effective way to moisturise your body.'
i have  mine in the classic scent but i know there are 2 other scents to choose from, i just really like the classic scent.


How it works -  You basically do all your normal stuff in the bath or shower, and once you get out. you apply it whilst your soaking wet! i must admit it did feel sooo weird doing this at first! the c…

My favourite make up brushes

For someone like me who wears make up practically every day and who owns a fair few make up brushes i thought i would share my favourite brushes that i use, and what i use them for!
 I do have quite the selection, and to be honest with you there are some that i never really pick up so i should pass them on to someone who would get more use out of them!
there are definitely  a fair few that i always pick up, and i do use a lot of them! mainly because i get lazy with washing my brushes, so i tend to go through most of them and then i tend to do a big batch wash.

I will start with the ones i own the most of, foundation brushes, i tend to use one for about a week then go onto a nice clean one until i am running pretty low on clean ones, thats when i tend to wash them! which i do actually enjoy doing! i would say one of the main keys to your make up is the application, the key to making it look good and flawless is to invest in some good quality make up brushes! the cheap ones tend to be …
