The Victorian Garden

If there is one thing that can be said about eras gone by is that everything that goes around, comes back around again. My generation, the millennium generation, may be under the impression that we were the only era to celebrate platform shoes circa Spice Girls but have a look around, they have come back in style again (not quite as bad as last time) but even before this, they were all the rage when my parents got married and their wedding photographs can vouch for this. The same can be said for beauty, fashion, style and even medicinally we often find ourselves looking to the past to see what they did right and how we have modernised things and completely made a balls up of how things should be by trying to be more efficient, and by efficient I mean commercial. Lining someone else’s back pocket while in severe cases we are exposing ourselves to harsh chemicals in the attempt to be modern and up-to-date.

Let’s move away from platforms and lets talk about organic. Organic is very in. Organic is very popular, whether it is what you are shoving down your throat or what you are smothering on your face, organic is better – its everywhere – like its a new thing but its not. Organic goods were the only goods before we started piling the artificial chemicals into everything to make life more convenient, to make things last longer and food to grow bigger.

The Victorian Garden is an unique company, their history is absolutely fascinating and compiled with modern research they develop the most wonderful traditional Victorian skin care recipes using only organic and natural ingredients and better yet, the products are made locally in South Africa.

ourProductsI did not know about this wonderful little brand until one of their gorgeous Hair Masques was popped into my first #BWB goodie bag, and we were informed not had the hair masques recently been relaunched and we were one of the first groups of people to get our paws on them. How exciting! The reason for the re-launch was to essentially crate a product that was harder working, better quality and great value for money. Hair masques are a product which can be enriching and the more enriched the better, therefore the new ingridients added assist with conditioning and repairing damaged hair, enhancing shine and moisture and assists with a softer and glistening hair all round after using the product – it does this by treating the hair shaft and nourishing the hair from the source with no added chemicals and completely cruelty free.

I have been using the lovely Rosemary & Jojoba Hair Masque with Peppermint which slightly tingles the scalp when applied but leaves the hair feeling fabulous afterwards.

Excuse the no-makeup as this was captured while Skyping my nephew on Saturday my brother so happily got a screen shot - but check my hair - forget the makeup is missing or admire my dog.

INDIAN HENNA HAIR DYE – MAGNIFIQUE

Hello Hotties!

You may have read about my HERBATINT experience. If you haven’t, click HERE, but this post is about a FABULOUS, less messy, longer lasting, healthier option and that is MAGNIFIQUE’S Herbs Based Hair Colors!

20121207-215648.jpg

I bought this box dye at DisChem. This box has 6 sachets inside. It’s powder based and you add about 30ml water to each sachet. Mix it all up and apply to your hair. What’s great is the fact you don’t end up wasting anything. You just open up a packet when you’re running low. My hair was in dire need of color, so I had to use 4 out of the 6.

As you can see, I have the hair dye brush set with the bowl, which I also purchased from DisChem for 15 bucks! It made the whole at home hair dye DIY so much easier!

What do I love most about the Henna Hair Dye?
*The fact it lasts extremely long, doesn’t fade easily!
*Hair feels thicker.
*Hair is a lot more shiny
*It’s less messier than other at home hair dye systems.
*Cheaper than HERBATINT or a hair dresser.
*You don’t waste the product.
*It has NO odor whatsoever.
*It is AGAINST ANIMAL TESTING! Yay!!!! Which is uber important to me!
*Available at DisChem and health shops.
*Comes in various colors.

I’m in love with this HENNA HAIR DYE from MAGNIFIQUE. My hair doesn’t feel dry and grassy at all. It’s still shiny and feeling softer. Yayness!!!

MuchLuv
Sandy
