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!

Bath and body works autumn collection

Can we just talk about bath and body works products?! i flippin' LOVE them!. They always bring out the best scents especially in autumn/winter. So it would of been rude of me not to try out some of the autumn creamy body wash range ;)


I'll be honest...its not my favourite packaging that they have brought out but putting that aside, they smell AMAZING!


For those who live in the uk (like me) and are not lucky enough to have any stores near to just go in and buy everything! (i wish i could!) we do have a few options...oh yes, you can get your hands on them, hooray!! you can order on the website and get them shipped over but you can pay a hefty customs charge :( and you cannot order everything from there to be shipped to the u.k. I use a uk facebook selling site, with people who work on cabin crew, who can take direct orders! or from lovely people that do make a big orders to be shipped! the people on the facebook site which is called bath and body works fans uk are amazing and i …

my winter staples

I might be a little late to the party considering winter has been here for a while! but better late than never and it is still winter!
in the colder months there are certain beauty products that are my saviours that i use every single day in the winter.
I think its important to really look after your skin throughout the year, but definitely in the winter with the harsh cold weather on your skin can make it pretty dry. So keeping my skin soft and well moisturised is most definitely a MUST - who wants dry skin?!

Body cream- the one brand that never fails me are the bath and body works Shea creams, they are super moisturising, they leave your skin so soft and they smell amazing! and the fragrance really lingers. my favourite part about these besides the gorgeous scents are the fact they aren't sticky! i love a bath at night time and there is nothing worse then getting into bed feeling all tacky after moisturising! they soak into your skin really quickly, so you don't get that tac…
