My Hair Hero | Elasticizer Extreme

There are a whole lotta hair products out there that claim to deliver a whole lotta big promises, but only a handful that really do what they say on the tin (or bottle). And when it comes to really restoring dry damaged locks, there is actually only one product that does it for me. Meet my hair hero- the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Extreme. I’ve been a huge fan of the original for years but as this one is stronger you can use less and keep it on for less time too so it’s much more practical. It’s a unique treatment as you unusually apply it before shampooing and it not only nourishes but delivers elasticity, bounce and shine. My poor ends have been dyed blonde for about three years now and I have incredibly crazy frizzy hair to start with that also takes a serious amount of heat (aren’t I lovely), so popping this on to damp ends just 20 or even 10 minutes before I step in the shower makes all the difference! What I’m left with after washing is hair that looks freshly trimmed in a transformed condition that is so much easier to style- it’s no wonder Audrey Hepburn was such a fan! Be warned this is heavy duty stuff so I wouldn’t take it near the roots and if you have fine or virgin hair I’d leave this well alone and opt for the original, but if you like me are forever buying bottles with phrases like ‘serious moisture’, ‘intense condition’ and ‘miracle restore’ on, then put your pennies together for this pricier purchase and I promise your new luscious locks with thank you.

What is your ultimate hair hero?

The Autumn Weekend VLOG

Happy Sunday Eve my loves! Sorry that things have been a bit quiet over here this week but it's been another crazy one. Needless to say the weekend was very much welcomed and I've had a lovely family time today as my lovely sister down to see us and she's expecting a little bundle of joy in March (I'm going to be an Auntie EEEK!), so I've spent as much time as possible talking to little bumpy. I also uploaded an Autumn weekend VLOG for you which I filmed on my Bristol adventure with the besties so you can partake in a little Sunday night viewing here. That's it for now but I have lots of posts coming this week and will also be heading to the Daily Mix Halloween party and Tanya Burr Cosmetics new product launch so make sure to stay tuned on Instagram and Twitter for live action of those rather exciting events! Have a wonderful end to the weekend :)

The Ruth Crilly Launch | COLAB

We all know and love Ruth Crilly, the stunner behind 'A Model Recommends' and after this post you're going to know all about her brand new dry shampoo range and trust me, you'll love it too. Being a modern girl in a busy world Ruth wanted to solve one of life's biggest beauty dilemmas, how to keep hair fresher for longer (ain't nobody got time for a daily blowdry), so she teamed up with an array of experts- Pixiwoo to name just two- to create COLAB. I was lucky enough to meet up with Ruth last week and attend the ever so cool launch party afterwards so got all the COLAB low down first hand. First off there are five unique scents named after five of the world's best cities; London (classic), New York (fruity), Paris (floral), Tokyo (oriental) and Rio (tropical). My favourite has to be New York as the notes of apple and melon make for a really uplifting and refreshing scent that can be worn all year round. It feels a bit odd talking about dry shampoo as though it's a perfume, but that's just one of the things that makes these bottles different from other dry shampoo on the shelves. Although actually the most stand out thing about the range has to be the formula. Spoiler alert: IT'S NOT WHITE. I know right. Even our favourite Batiste comes out white and has to be really worked into the hair to ensure there are zero dandruffty remains, but COLAB is completely clear with a sheer consistency so it disappears as soon as it comes out of the bottle and all you are left with is voluminous gorgeous smelling hair that feels freshly washed. With cool, contemporary packaging and a £3.50 price tag, along with handy £2.00 mini bottles, Ruth and the team have done such a good job and honestly, I think this might be the end of my relationship with Batiste 'floral and flirty blush... #holdthephone.

      Will you be picking COLAB up from feelunique this week?
