Hair With a Shine

Schwarzkopf, a name unanimous with affordable effective hair solutions.

A while ago, I received the new Schwarzkopf Gliss Million Gloss Shampoo and Conditioner both of which have the most gorgeous brilliant turquoise packaging but it is what is on the inside that counts after all, right? Well, the inside is a hair care formula revolution in gloss and shine which has been designed to leave hair with a flawless gloss that can last up to 10 days after use. The hair is ‘coated’ or ‘laminated’ in a weightless gloss which makes the hair shine bright and reflect light for an added sparkle. The way that it makes the hair shine so bright is that the entire hair is ‘laminated’ in shine that is better than other hair shine products which only partly cover hair leaving a rough surface area that only results in a partial shine. The secret ingredient which assists in the ultimate hair shine is the Gloss Elixir found in in the Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Treatment mask.

Before embarking and using my Gliss Million Gloss shampoo and conditioner, I didn’t think my hair was dull however there has been a noticeable improvement in the shine visiable in my locks. I believe this an affordable solution for beached out hair this summer from all the salt and sunshine which makes hair appear dull and rough. Adding the Gloss Million to your hair care routine will combat this and give you ultra smooth, extra shiny tresses which would rival any haircare advert.

Additionally to the shampoo and conditioner, in the Gliss Million Gloss range there is also a 10-Day Shine Treatment for smooth, high gloss hair for the ultimate long-term dull hair solution.

Hair Styles to Turn Heads

TRESemme is a brand I know of but have never actually been one that I tend to go for just because we hadn’t really crossed paths or I was inundated with other hair care products and my hair routine is rather minimal so I always overlooked them. It was nothing personal, it was simply just I never had a need to look for styling products.

They recently sent me their TRESemme Extra Control Salon Finish Mousse which is to for a firm style to hold all day no matter the humidity. I am always hesitant of hair products but I will try anything once so I used this to create fabulous curls using my Babyliss MiraCurl Iron (review coming soon!).

Upon first using the mousse I cringed a bit as it is so sticky and I thought am I really going to run this through my clean hair? As my hair was towel dry it quickly absorbed into my hair and made general drying of my hair easier than normal. I then proceeded to split my hair to use my MiraCurl Iron to make these curls and this was then finished with a spritz of 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray and my hair lasted! Here is what it looked like (note – the next morning)…

TRESEMME

Yeah, its nothing wow but it is a wow for me, given the fact that I have such straight hair the simple fact that TRESemme can help me hold a curl is noteworthy, never mind the fact that it dropped slightly but there was still a legitimate beach-worthy curl the following day is unheard of in the land of my hair.

TRESemme’s celebrity hairstylist Matthew Monsoor recommends using the Extra Control Salon Finish Mousse before styling to freshly washed and towel dried hair to create loose romantic curls or if you are going with a style with lots of volume or even an eccentric style which give your hair added texture in order for the styling to be extra savvy.

For extra expert tips be sure to check out TRESemme’s website and follow them on Facebook.

The Extra Control Salon Finish Mousse retails for R76.99 and is available at most Clicks, Dischem and Medirite pharmacies nationwide.

Manic Monday product review ~ black│Up Matifying Base

Hello pretty pouters.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and started your X-mas shopping, I’m finished with mine, thank goodness.

 

So, here’s another quick product review, while I have a much needed cuppa joe…

 

Today under my spotlight is another great product received from Rubybox.

 

black│Up Matifying Base

Yes ladies, listen up! This is a product you definitely want in your makeup bag, or makeup kit.

This product sells for about R375 for 30ml

This Base / primer is described as the ultimate shine buster, dare I say, I agree. This wonderful product immediately soaks up excess oil, makes pores less visible and instantly preps the skin so that you can apply your favourite makeup.

 

Your skin stays matt the entire day and silky soft. Yeh, you won’t be able to resist touching your face during the day. And best of all, your makeup stays on your face longer.

Apply this product sparingly after moisturising your face, I do say sparingly, because a little bit of this goes a looooong way.  You can also just wear this without wearing any makeup, for a natural look without that midday oily shine.

 

So go on, you owe it to yourself to be silky soft and shine free!

 

Have a pouty perfect day!
