REVIEW || GARNIER ULTIMATE BLENDS PLUMPING HAIR FOOD WATERMELON & POMEGRANATE SHAMPOO, CONDITIONER AND MASK


When I first saw that Garnier brought out a watermelon scented range of their Ultimate Blends collection I knew I had to have it because if you know anything about me you will know that I love anything watermelon scented. I'm a huge fan of the Banana hair mask from Garnier and I haven't tried any of the other products, including the shampoos or conditioners. On my recent walk, I decided to go into my local Boots store and pick up the shampoo, conditioner and mask from the watermelon collection and I just couldn't wait to smell them!

Review || Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Omega Repair

Hey guys!
I realised that I haven't done a full review of a product for a while, so thought that I should review one of my recent purchases, which is the Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Omega Repair Beauty Balm hair treatment by Claudia Schiffer. This hair BB is for damaged, depleted hair that needs a lot of TLC.
There are three different ones to choose from. I chose the Omega Repair as my hair is very dry and brittle from overusing hair bleach and heated tools. This product is the best hair remedy which works ASAP and makes your hair feel light, soft and extra bouncy. What I noticed after using this product is that it made my hair very easy to comb through and it didn't even look flat, like it usually does. So not only does this product save hair, but it also improves it and gives it volume!
I have been so excited for Claudia Schiffer's haircare range to come out, as I have always been struggling with the state of my own hair, and her being a blonde like me made it easier for me to buy as I know that she dyes her own hair the lightest shade of blonde. I have tried so many different products over the past 5 years since I first dyed my hair, and because I keep changing my hair colour between platinum, brown and blonde, it never is in the state I wish it was. I've been trying to grow my hair out for about 3 years now as it sued to be long and healthy but then boom! I dyed it brown and had to bleach it when I got bored with the colour. Ever since I keep damaging my hair intentionally and I try to stop myself so it finally grows out, but it takes too long and I, being a Capricorn, am very impatient!!
The packaging of this product is quite small and handy. It looks like something hairdressers would use at an expensive hair salon. It has a picture of Claudia on it, so everyone knows that it is one of her products. It explains what the product does at the back of the bottle and what type of hair it is for.
Here in this picture, my hair looks really soft and bouncy, - just what I was aiming for. The product's consistency is very similar to normal hair conditioners which you wash out. This one is to leave in after every wash. I recently had a haircut so I don't have split ends, however, some ends of my hair are still very dry as I didn't want my hairdresser to chop all of it off! This is where the treatment comes in and saves my life. Every time I use it, my hair feels like it's just been done by a professional hairdresser, and all I have to do is brush it because it doesn't need styling!
In this picture, you can see the length of my hair when it's only been brushed (excuse my lip scar). It is naturally wavy and most days I cannot be bothered to straighten it so I just leave it wavy or put it up in a bun. It's not as short as I thought it was and is much healthier than it ever was!
 Overall, I would rate this product 9/10 because it does an amazing job in keeping hair soft and shiny, with an anti-frizz formula (this is always a plus). I got it on offer for £3.49, but I think the normal price is £4.99 so it isn't pricey at all. Well worth spending money on, I will definitely buy this product again when I run out!!

Dr. Hobbs Severely Damaged Thin Hair Medicine Review

Hey guys!
As you all already know, my hair is very thin and fragile due to being over-dyed and bleached. I have recently become a big fan of Dr. Hobbs' hair treatment products and you can read one of my other reviews of their products here.
This time I have picked up a hair mask which I can use in the shower and don't have to keep it on for long.

The packaging: The packaging is very plain and simple. The tub is plastic and holds a lot of the product inside it. The instructions on the packaging are very clear and give an outlook of what your hair is going to gain. The ingredients are carefully described in case someone was allergic to one of them. The packaging isn't very attractive, however it has this vintage look to it which I really approve of!

The application: The application of the product was very easy as the texture of the mask is very silky and watery. It's very easy to apply, especially on wet hair. I do have to use a fair amount of the product every time I use it, so it's not long lasting and will probably have to buy a tub every month if I decide to carry on with the treatment (which I definitely will). 

The results: It made my hair a little bit dry but it looked a lot thicker with more volume after a few uses. It made my hair follicles stronger and I noticed a decrease in hair loss too. There isn't much can say about this product, other than it's quite average, but it did make my hair feel and look fuller than it usually does.



Lots of love

Dr. Hobbs Heat Gro Intensive Hair & Scalp Strengthening Therapy Review

Hey guys!
So, I have been out shopping (again) and found some really amazing hair treatment when I was looking for new hair extensions. My hair is naturally very thin and fragile, but because I have been dying it and wearing my hair extensions it became thinner. This has worried me deeply as hair is a big part of everyone's appearance and I can't be dealing with having to cut my hair really short or go bald.
I read the ingredients of the treatment, and instantly thought 'wow I must buy this product, it's 100% natural'.

The packaging: The treatment is in a basic plastic tub and isn't exactly eye-catching. however it looks like something you would buy in a herbal shop, especially by the pot and spatula to mix ingredients, mostly herbs and tablets. The large bold writing draws attention to the packaging and makes you want to read on. As soon as I read that it strengthens hair and helps hair grow faster, I had to turn it around and read the back of it to make sure that the ingredients are natural. Overall, the packaging isn't very exciting and is rather simple.

The application: The application was quite hard to be honest! The texture of the treatment is very thick and gooey, almost like jelly so it was hard to spread it around my whole scalp. However I didn't have to use a lot of it, therefore it will last for a longer period. It says that you should apply it every day for best results, however I decided that I'm going to use it every other day as I don't want to wash my hair too often, because then it will lose its natural oils and make it harder for me to grow it. As soon as the product touches the skin, it automatically warms up. Sometimes it might be a little bit tingly, however I thought it was a nice burning sensation, almost like a sauna face mask, but for hair.

The results: I have used this product a few times now and I noticed that my hair is getting slightly bit thicker, like after using henna, the hair is covered in the product and stays that way for a while. My scalp isn't as flaky any more and I noticed that more hair is growing in places where it has fell out. I am very satisfied with the results so far as I have been using this product in less than a week. I will definitely buy this product again and use it all the time until my hair is stronger and thicker, but just to make sure it stays that way I will use it even then! It is a definite 10/10 and the fact that it cost me less than £10 makes it even better!
I hope this helps and that some of you will try this product out!
