Apivita Propoline Shampoo and Nourishing and Repairing Mask for Dry-Dehydrated Hair. Review and Photos

It’s time to tell you about more Apivita products that I loved, this time I want to tell you about about their shampoo and hair mask.

This is a range with honey and almond for dry and dehydrated hair which contains rosemary infusion instead of water and organic oils.

Although my hair is not dry or dehydrated, I was curious to try this range, as I’ve heard some amazing things about it.

First of all, I have to say that I really love the scent of both products, they do smell of honey. I have been using this shampoo for several months and I would say that it does make  the hair  soft and shiny.  It does feel nourished without getting greasy and does not weight the hair down.

It should also protect the ends from splitting but I can’t make any comments on that as I try to get a hair cut every two-three months now, which is very regular for me ( I used to go once-twice per year; yes, I know).

Here are the ingredients but if you can’t see them properly, Apivita does list them all on the website. The price for 250 ml is €11.90.

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Review and Photos. Rave

I’ve been using Philip Kingsley’s PK 4 HAIR vitamins for three months and have been seeing great results (will do a review later), so have decided  to try the brand’s cult product which is Elasticizer.

I’ve got the smallest tube ( £12.25 for 75 ml), to see how I like it before getting a full sized product.

I don’t have damaged or colour treated hair to begin with, but I do see great results anyway. Although, you should leave it for 10-20 minutes, I usually leave it on for a longer time while I am doing some kind of work around the house ( I use it in the evening). And then shampoo, as usual.

Usually (90%) I let my hair dry naturally and don’t style it in any way but, once again, I can see that my hair is soft, shiny and in a great condition, as if I have just visited the salon! It is definitely so much better than most hair products I’ve tried before. I actually don’t use conditioners as don’t see any results, but this is very different.

Elseve Nutri-Gloss Light Conditioning Shine Spray. Review

Last Tuesday I was invited to a wedding. This is how my mani and lips looked like. But what about my hair? I just wanted it to be straight and shiny. My hair is staright and shiny  but I wanted it to look better than usual. So I thought that it’s time to get some shine spray.

I’ ve tried several “shiny” products for hair but what was the result?  My hair became greasy and oily very soon and I had to wash it on the next day. But I still wanted to try something out so I went shopping and found this !I really like Nutri-Gloss Light Shampoo (read review here) so I wanted to give a try to this spray. Plus it is not expensive.

  1. Remember to wear scarf hat or cap to protect your hair against the damaging effects of the sun.
  2. If you are planning to stay long in the sun, use a protective sunscreen on your hair before stepping out.
  3. Try using Sun Hair repair mask, after your hair is exposed to the harmful effects of the sun for a long duration.
  4. Avoid using additional heat on your hair, meaning make the least use of Hair Dryers or Hair Curlers on your hair. If at all using it, remember to condition your hair before you do so.
  5. Avoid taking hot showers or washing your hair in hot water, use warm or cool water instead, the heat can dry out and/or damage your hair and skin.
  6. Avoid hair products with formaldehyde or alcohol in it which dry out hair, try to use natural products that are gentler on your hair.
  7. Try using moisturizing shampoo during summer, rather than the normal shampoo that you use during other times, as they are much gentle on your hair.
  8. Try washing your hair less often; shampooing your hair strips the moisture out of your hair.
  9. Deep condition your hair after each shampoo wash.
  10. Products with replenishing actions works better in summer.

Davines Alchemic Shampoo in Chocolate Brunette Review. Rave

I think 2012 was a year of hair care for me, I have been going to the hair dresser regularly, bought vitamins and invested in good hair care products.

This is why you have been seeing reviews of hair products more often. And, in fact, I want to tell you about yet another shampoo today.

Although I love when my hair is very dark, almost black, I have stopped colouring it about two years ago and don’t really experiment with hair colour anymore… This is why I thought Davines Alchemic in Chocolate Brunette Shampoo would be a good option for me.

Davines is an Italian hair care brand, their Alchemic shampoo comes in four colours and enhances the colour of your hair, natural or coloured.

I absolutely adore the “pharmacy” looking bottle, the style of the bottle and the pattern on it makes me think of Great Gatsby for some reason. This product does look very cool on the bathroom shelve!
