#JOICO HAIR REJUVENATING SYSTEM

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to get a JOICO Hair Rejuvenating System Treatment.

As I was having my hair washed and treated, MiMi, a JOICO hair consultant was telling me how the treatment worked with each step.  It was very informative, and it was great knowing what was actually happening to your hair.  Found out that the treatment puts back the 19 amino acids your hair needs.

MiMi then gave me a pamphlet showing me how the JOICO treatment worked on each hair strand.

How it works

How it works

You’ll see that it’s a 4-step treatment.   It pretty much reconstructs your hair with real proteins and you can see in step 4 that products are available for you to purchase after your visit to the salon.  I’m not normally one to just believe in everything a product does, however this is a high-end product and not something mass-produced that you find in any store.  It’s definitely a quality product.  MiMi explained to me that very little product is actually needed due to it being concentrated.  So your shampoo & conditioner will last you very long.  However, nothing beats being pampered at the EDL Salon.

#GOODY BAG – WHAT DID I GET FROM THE EDL Hair & Beauty LAUNCH PARTY?

On the 24th January 2015 I attended the EDL Hair & Beauty Studio on Lynnwood and Kryolan launch party.

It was a fabulous affair indeed, there was lights, cameras and a lot of glamorous action.

We were surrounded with champagne, delicacies, music, photographers, sexy cars, people, celebs of course and so much more.  The EDL store was open for business and tours for anyone at the launch.  The owners Natalie & Esidio Camara and Elaine & Danny de Lima can be extremely proud of what they’ve achieved with this salon.  Across the board is the consensus that this salon is totally different to any other in South Africa.  It is a clean, refreshing, vibrant, professional space with that European feeling, as it’s situated right next to AROMA.

You will always see the owners, manager,  the professional artists, hair stylists, nail and beauty therapists there.  Ready to make you feel very special.

Towards the end of the evening, some of us lucky ladies received a gift bag with lots of goodies in.   The items were:

Starting Quick with Mio in the Mornings

QuickStart Shower Cream Tube 200ml_300dpi print...I’ve been dying for ages to get my paws on a tube of exhilarating shower gel from Mio ever since I have experienced their Liquid Yoga, I am completely in love with this brand! Like all their products, the QuickStart shower gel main objective is to give you FIT SKIN FOR LIFE but this one in particular is to give you CLEAN & FIT SKIN FOR LIFE while leaving you feel ready to tackle any challenges of the day ahead. Mio wants you to wake up happy! With QuickStart that is an objective that can be set even when missing your routine cup of coffee (just don’t skip the shower – you need to the magic of the QuickStart!)

While QuickStart cleansing the skin, it leaves the skin feeling hydrated and leaves the skin brighter and relieves any swelling or puffiness from a hard nights sleep. The trick with QuickStart, to get the absolute full benefit is to breathe properly in the shower and take in the full benefit of minty zesty essential oils. With some impressive ingredients on the list, these include:

Amazing Ingredients

Coconut derived cleansers natural gentle cleansers give a low lather deep cleanse without stripping skin of vital oils.

Spearmint Oil tones and soothes skin with naturally powerful antioxidants, stimulating circulation

Witch Hazel Extract Natural antibacterial skin pH balancer to protect skin with strong antioxidant benefits

V-Tonic Mega-uplifting blend including oils of Spearmint Leaf, Citrus Lemon Peel, Cypress Leaf, Menthol and Lavender that will help improve circulation and energy levels

Organic Lemon Extract Zesty natural skin brightener, helps stimulate new skin regeneration.

Organic Grapefruit Extract Packed with flavonoids and antioxidant Vitamin C to fight free radical damage and protect collagen that gives skin bounce.

Caffeine derived from Guarana, the ultimate natural stimulant to pep you up for a great day ahead.

Mio knows that its no coincidence that some of the best ideas that come to mind happen in the bathroom. There is actually scientific evidence which explains why. Creativity is a side effect of an infused dopamine chemical – this can happen when we are in the bath and shower… while doing so it relaxes our bodies which in turn relaxes our minds.

As with all Mio products, they are proud to contain NO NASTIES. QuickStart is free from parabens, petrolatum, synthetic fragrance and colourants, xenoestrogens, PEGs, phthalates & glycols.

The shower gel is 200ml and retails from Poise Brands at selected salons, spas and retail outlets for R415.00 – be sure to get your paws on some to start 2015 with a bang!
