Happy sunny Saturday beautiful 🙂 This week has been all sorts of hectic in terms of work and social life; I’ve had lots of exciting meetings, clients, a shoot and castings, made it to the gym where possible and attended the Mad Max premiere which was brilliant and well worth a watch if you like action packed movies and eye candy. Sometimes a break from blogging is nice because you return to writing new content refreshed and inspired. Today I’m back with my Top 5 hair care range reviews letting you guys in on some of the latest lock transformers you need to try. The above L’Oréal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Luminiser range has intense hot pink packaging and an equally pretty price point. Using professional gloss techniques and exclusive ingredient Glycogel to remove impurities from hair fibres, and coat them with a gloss for long lasting shine, the fibres appear as if resurfaced and cuticles appear realigned, for silky smoother hair that feels intensely moisturised. Over time, hair fibres can become dull due to a build up of impurities and the hair cuticle becoming rough, which can disrupt light refection. The ingredients in the range basically work on sealing the cuticles and coating the hair with a weightless gloss to intensify shine.
If you suffer from fragile hair the Garnier Ultimate Blends The Strength Restorer range is tailor made for your dull, damaged tresses. Containing sweet smelling Honey, Royal Jelly and Propolis, your hair should feel healthier and more resilient from the first wash. The shampoo and conditioner is a budget friendly combo worth trying out, but the star buy from the range has to be The Strength Restorer 1 Minute Treatment. In just one minute, hair feels intensely nourished from root to tip and revitalised with a feeling of new strength; ideal for hair craving intense care. There’s even The Strength Restorer Serum, to target the look of split ends and protect hair from further breakage. According to test results hair is 6 times stronger, with up to 84% less breakage after continual use.
Moving onto the more high end hair buys, L’Oréal Professional Absolut Repair Lipidium is a reconstructing range inspired by skincare treatments. The shampoo helps to restore lipids that can be lost through use of chemicals, heat styling and external aggressors including sun, salt and chlorinated water. These cause hair to break easily, make hair styling become difficult, fade coloured hair and make textured hair lose it’s bounce. Lipidium is made up of Latic Acid that helps with cortex reconstruction, Phyto Keratin and Ceramides that works to structure hair and Lipids that form a barrier film on hair to lock in actives and essential nutrients, which coats hair against new aggressors. This technological breakthrough range contains the most reconstructing ingredients to replenish all hair zones and create an insulating barrier to lock in essential nutrients to restore healthy tresses. This is a brilliant pre and post holiday hair buy.
Kérastase Elixier K Ultime in all it’s golden glory combines oil blending to transform and merge with the hair fiber to give gorgeous hair and glimmering shine. Three new precious products have arrived to complete the iconic Elixir K Ultime line, offering women the customized hair enhancement that meets their demanding requirements. From the perfect pre shampoo to a serious serum that offers shine and a sexy sleek finish, this is a must for anyone with dry hair lacking lustre. Containing four precious oils, Maize, Argan, Camellia and Pracaxi your hair will feel conditioned, protected and enhanced with incredible softness and shine. Not to mention the seductive scent that will leave everyone wanting a whiff.
Finally for those of you who want to try something outside of regular wash and go routines Redken have launched an Extreme Length Primer and Sealer. Sounds like something for your talons not your tresses right? Well this beautiful blue duo are formulated with biotin in order to provide weightless conditioning and build strength from root to tip. If you suffer from slow root re growth and split ends this range promises to help achieve your maximum hair length; up to 6″ in a year which is rather impressive considering healthy hair can grow 3-6″ in a year. I especially like the Sealer built in brush which makes application simple and fun.
