Are you looking for fade resistant, high shine hair colour? Préférence’s patented anti-fade colourants lock into the hair, to ensure a luminous and long-lasting colour which perfectly covers your grey hair.L’Oréal Recital Preference … colourant molecules penetrate the hair shaft and are locked in, providing better resistance to fading. Your hair holds onto its vibrancy and the colour you want stays truer, from roots to ends, even with repeated shampooing. This new formula actually conditions as it colours. Then the after colour care finishing cream, with its UV filter, helps protect the hair leaving it incredibly soft and shiny.

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.

loreal shine spray

This is what is written about this spray. Information is from L’Oreal’s website.

Is your mid to long hair fine, or does it tend to get greasy? Does it need a light weight spritz to give it shine, and leave it instantly detangled?

The L’Oréal laboratories have developed Elseve Nutri-Gloss Light Conditioning Shine Spray. A leave-in shine enhancing conditioner you can use everyday, in a spray that’s light and quick to use. Weightless Detangling, Mirror Shine – Cashmere Touch.

Your hair is instantly detangled and manageable: combing is easy! Perfectly nourished, the fibre captures and reflects light. Your hair feels soft and light, with mirror like shine.

So light, can be used as a conditioning boost: On damp hair after washing with shampoo & conditioner, or instead of regular conditioner depending on hair condition. On dry hair, with a light spray to tame hair between washes or on the go! No need to rinse. Can be used every day for daily gloss.


So did I like the effect and is it really true?

Bonacure Sun Guardian Shampoo Review

I already made a post : “How to take care of your hair in summer“. In this post I would like to review shampoo that I currently use.

pluses:

Shampoo really does everything that is promised. It is one of the best shampoo that I’ve ever tried. It can be compared only to L’oreal Professional and Kerastase. Several weeks ago I was at the salon having a haircut and the products that were used were L’oreal Professional. Of course my hair looked perfect after all the procedures. But I want to admit that when I use BC  Sun Guarding  at home my hair looks almost the same. This shampoo is clear and smells nice. After you use it your hair looks beautiful, shiny and smooth. After a week  you can see great improvements plus it moisturizes your hair after damage that sun causes.

Favourite Beauty Products of 2012: Perfumes and Hair Care

It’s about time I write about my beauty favourites of 2012, right?

I am sorry that it took me absolutely ages to get around. I really loved reading such type of posts and watching such type of videos.

So, hopefully, you will like my list, too.

I will start with perfume and hair care, as these are the shortest categories (for me).

Perfume

Molecule 01 by Escentric Molecules

There was a lot of hype around this product this year and I have to admit that I am a fan, too.  You can read all the details about this fragrance here.

Jo Malone Blackberry and Bay Cologne

I have realised that I really love blackberry note in my perfumes.  Blackberry and Bay from Jo Malone was the scent I wore during my holiday in August and during all September so whenever I were it now, it makes me think of very nice moments in my life. As it was a Limited Edition, I only use it on the special occasions.

Illamasqua Freak Eau De Parfum

For me this is a super sexy scent,  but it’s not over the top, plus it lasts really well on me. No wonder that  people from Illamasqua are so proud of it. I have several samples but definitely have to get a full size.

Aromatherapy Associates Relax Candle

This has to be my favourite candle of 2012, as it does help to relax in the evening and is a high quality product. Read more about it here.

How to Take Care of Your Hair in Summer. 15 Useful Tips

I already made  posts ” How to Chose Best Sun Glasses” and “Summer Must Haves: My Glasses by Roksolana Bogutska”

Today I want to talk about hair care. Do you know how to take care of your hair in summer? Do you want you hair to look gorgeous?  Here are some useful  tips that will help you!

  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.
