Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Intensive Mask* // Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment // Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo // Lush BIG Shampoo // Bleach London Silver Shampoo
I've decided to start a new series on my blog showing my favourite products in certain categories. I've decided to start off with hair care as it seems to be the category that I know the most on - mainly because I've used loads of products and I've finally narrowed it down to a few favourites that I keep using.
First up is the Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Intensive Mask*. I received this in a secret Santa package after it was on my wish list (thanks for reading my blog!) and I was over the moon to have received it. I tend to use this when I've used a lot of heat on my hair throughout the week, as my ends always seem frazzled and frayed after too much heat. This mask helps to restore my ends, and protects against further damage in the process. This mask smells really nice too which is always a bonus in my eyes.
The Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment is a product that is on its way out, and sadly I haven't picked another one up (must remember to do so). I wouldn't say that this is a miracle product that makes your hair grow overnight, s don't be fooled. It does however condition your hair like no other and adds a load of goodness to your hair, which in turn will make your hair grow (if your hair is in good condition, it will grow quicker as opposed to damaged hair). Personally I just like how it leaves my hair afterwards - my hair feels as light as a feather.
I use a lot of styling products on my hair and I wanted a nice clarifying shampoo that wouldn't completely dry my hair out. I decided to go for Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo as so many people had recommended it. I have colour treated hair and I think that this works great at removing built up product but not stripping the colour from my hair. It doesn't leave my hair really dry either which was a worry as a few people had mentioned that it was drying. My hair is left clean and fresh - perfect!
The Lush BIG Shampoo is another clarifying shampoo, but it's also a volumising one (I spoke about it here). My views front hat first review haven't changed - it's still la wonderful product and I think I will continue buying this. As this has proven to be so good I'm curious to see how other Lush shampoos work, so if you've tried any others, please let me know!
And lastly, the Bleach London Silver Shampoo has been a life saver since going blonde. I use a mix of two Garnier Olia hair dyes, and my roots are the only parts of my hair that go more yellow/brassy than the rest, and I can't seem to fix it without bleaching my hair - which I don't want to do too often. A better way to get rid of the yellow has been to use this Silver Shampoo. It comes out bright purple which is really scary considering I have to put it onto blonde hair. But it goes on really well, flames up a lot, cleanses my roots and gets right of the brassy tones. The bottle says to use it every other wash which I do, and I'd found that I haven't needed to reach for the bleach at all.
What shampoos/conditioners do you like?
