♥ Top hair care products and Featured Bloggers ♥

Hello my Beauties!

Every time i come across a really great product in general, i think – this could be something i should post about.
Somehow this was the inspiration for me to start doing featured blog posts, to give my fellow beauty bloggers the chance to talk about their favorite beauty items, that they consider a must-have. I think we all can benefit from it, as we discover new exciting products to try.

This month i would like to share with you some incredible bloggers and their ideas of top hair care. I hope, you enjoy the articles, that i put together for you!
So get yourself a big cup of tea or coffee (it’s going to be a longer post!) and let’s get started.

My favourite hair care product has got to be the Lush Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Ease treatment.
Lush Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Ease treatment
I was very excited to get an email from Luchessa telling me she’s planning a hair care post on her blog and that she’d like me to share with you guys my favourite hair care product.

This was actually one of the first products from Lush I ever bought and I love it! I found it in my local Lush store when I was browsing around. I quite like the fact that it claims to not make your hair ‘look like a poodle’.

Just to give you a background on my hair: It’s very dry and over processed. I dye my hair regularly (not with bleach though) and have had it chemically relaxed plenty of times. That’s probably not the best thing to do to your hair! I’ve also been using GHD’s on my hair for 10+ years. So as you can probably imagine, my hair is not in the best condition… Anyway I’m always looking for products that will put some moisture back into my dry and damaged hair and that will combat some of the frizziness!

You apply this product onto dry hair and leave it on for about 30 minutes. After that you shampoo and condition your hair as normal. I can honestly say this product has made a massive difference to my hair. I’ve been using this as a weekly treatment and it always leaves my hair feeling really soft and sleek. It’s also improved the condition of my hair and I have definitely got less split ends since I’ve started using this. 
One thing to note about this product is that it contains henna (as the name suggests) and it is particularly suitable for brunettes and red heads. Even though it’s got henna in it though, it hasn’t left any kind of redness in my hair. But I perhaps wouldn’t really recommend this product if you’ve got blonde hair. 

This product smells a little bit of jasmine but the smell is not too strong. Because you shampoo and condition your hair as normal after using this treatment , you can still use it even if you don’t particularly like the smell of jasmine!

As with all Lush products, the Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Eaze Treatment is hand made and not tested on animals

Well I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post, and thank you again Luchessa for contacting me about it 🙂

My favorite product –  is a 10 Leave-In Miracle Product

10 Leave-In Miracle ProductIt seems like I’ve spent most of my life trying to find the perfect product for my hair. When I received a free sample of It’s a 10 Leave-In Miracle Product, I finally found it!
My hair is long, wavy, thick, and prone to tangles. Because it is long, I’m also concerned with split ends. It’s a 10 makes ten different claims, and I have to say that they are all true. Since using this product, my hair is healthier than ever and stays incredibly soft in between washes. 

It’s a 10 comes in a purple spray bottle and is available in two sizes: 10 ounces (295 ml) and 4 ounces (118 ml).
This is nice for people who don’t want to make the commitment of the larger bottle, as the product is on the expensive side, ranging from $20-$35 USD.
It is not a ‘fluid’ product, but has a creamier consistency without clogging up the nozzle. It’s a 10 also doesn’t weigh hair down or leave it feeling greasy.
As someone who has who has tested a mountain of hair products, this one is definitely holy grail material!

Swartzkopf Got2be Kinkier Double Curling Power Gloss ‘n Define Mousse

 Swartzkopf Got2be Kinkier Double Curling Power Gloss 'n Define Mousse

When Luchessa asked me to participate in her featured blog post and write about my favorite hair care product, I was over the moon and very honored.  Hair care isn’t something that I blog about all that often, but after thinking about what I wanted to say and the product I wanted to talk about, I am somewhat inspired!

 A little intro into my hair is in order.  I have naturally curly, dry hair.  Needless to say, I have had many battles with my hair.  Every day is a struggle with frizziness, definition, and tangles.  I have an arsenal of hair products at my disposal at all times to tame what my mom refers to as my lion mane.  Some staples in my collection that I am absolutely crazy about are Moroccan Oil, Matrix Conditioning Balm, and LA Girl Sport gel.  But if I had to pick one hair product that I would highly suggest to other girls who have curly hair, it would be the Swartzkopf Got2be Kinkier Double Curling Power Gloss ‘n Define Mousse.

 Since I have a lot of hair, I apply about a palm size amount to the right side of my hair and then another to the left side. I apply it while it is still damp and do the traditional scrunch technique.  After that, I either blow dry my hair with a defuser or allow my hair to air dry.  Either way the results are almost the same.

 What I found is that this product really does do what the name implies … it leaves my hair extremely glossy and defines my curls. But the true test of a curly hair product is not fresh hair, but day 2 hair and day 3 hair.  For all of you other curly haired girls, you know that you can’t wash your hair every day but by day 3 your hair is either a frizzy mess or a kinky rats nest (mine is the latter).  So what makes this product a holy grail for me is that it holds my style for 2 days, sometimes 3 before I start losing my curl definition.  I’ve purchased about 6 bottles already and don’t see myself experimenting with anything else any time soon! 

Thanks again to Luchessa who is so sweet to consider me.  Hope y’all have a great day and thanks for reading!

  1. Been using It’s A 10 on my hair for years! It’s the one product I can’t live without. So glad you found it. I can’t even combe through my wet hair without it. It’s really saved my hair! 🙂

  2. I haven’t come across these products before but It’s a 10 looks great – I always feel like I don’t leave conditioner in for long enough so this would be great to continue looking after my hair after showering. I also love the lush one – have brown hair so this may be a good one for me too. Great post!

  3. Loveee this! I’m always hunting for new hair products, this is right up my street, thank you!

  4. I going to use.. it’s a 10, I have wavy to curly hair, good post!

  5. I always wanted to try Lush hair products!

  6. Hey this is such a great idea! I love learning about new products.

  7. Reblogged this on misshollyberries and commented:
    About a week and a half ago, the lovely and talented Luchessa asked me to write a post about my favorite hair care product. She asked several other bloggers and the result was an amazing post, and 1 or 2 things added to my wish list.

    She’s graciously allowing me to share this post with all of you guys as well, and if you read down to the bottom she has a very generous surprise! Check out Luchessa’s blog because shes amazing!

  8. Interesting. Thanks, Luchessa for inviting your friends to feature products here. I found hope in the curling mousse given above. I have curly hair and it looks so dry and frizzy. Thanks for the beauty tip~

  9. Yay! Glad to see you taking care of your hair.

  10. Lovely post dear!

    I use silver shampoo of L’Oreal Expert since I dye my hair white/grey. And I use Kérastase Age Recharge Mask every week to prevent dry and frizzy hair. I really love that. Not cheap, but you only need a tiny bit product to do the job 😀

    @Holly: you made me laugh by mentioning “kinky rats nest”. Such a perfect discription for something that I also need to deal with. Really hate that.

    Ps.: something simple that gives my hair a boost during this harsh weather:
    Apply your favorite hairmask and wrap your hair with a warm wet towel for about half an hour. I simply make a towel wet with some water and put it in the microwave for 2 minutes 😀

  11. Ps.: Just checked out Nuala’s blog and followed! She has great product reviews… and I LOVE LUSH! Especially the Lemony Flutter 😀

  12. Have just spotted your tweet, Luchessa. Thank you for the kind words. I think you’re an inspiration too because you have a great style of writing. I don’t mention it very often but I struggle a lot with writing and it usually takes me about 2 hours to come up with my posts and they’re not even that good! I enjoyed reading this (and all your other posts), i’m such a noob when it comes to beauty products! I’ve heard a lot of good thing about the Lush product, I am keen to try it! Will make a little purchase at Lush next time i pass by! Hope you’ve had a fab weekend! xxx

    • Thanks for commenting dear 😀
      I think it just honors you, if you really take your time to produce a good solid post. So don’t make yourself less good than you are 😉
      Yes especially this Lush product seems to be a great one 🙂 Let me know what you purchase. 🙂

  13. I like your blog and I’m following you now!!!! Have a special day!!!

  14. Yay! I’ve just joined! Following Nuala dear 🙂 xx

  15. Thanks for this! Such a great idea Luchessa 🙂

  16. omg!!!! I won! *happy dance* I can’t believe it. I won!!! (sorry, getting too excited!) Thank you so much Luchessa for holding this awesome giveaway! 🙂 xx
