Nanokeratin refining shampoo and mask: making my hair manageable




Knotty, damaged and very dry best describes my hair. Long have I wanted soft to the touch hair that my fingers can just glide through with ease. So when these landed through my door, I couldn't wait to try them out and see if they could work their magic.

The normal shampoos I use are either the Catwalk Oatmeal one or a trusted Herbal Essence which might not be the best, but they work well with my hair and its condition. I find that some shampoos can make my hair quite greasy quickly and tend to only wear it down for one day and they its up in the standard pineapple hairstyle we all sport. The shampoo is nice, although after washing it out it sort of felt that it had dried my hair out (if that even makes sense). It didn't lather up much compared to other shampoos and was tough to get the amount from the sachet to cover all of my long locks, but overall was good in terms of application. 

Normally I'm not a huge fan of using masks because, if I'm honest I'm lazy. I want to get in and then out done and dusted. This attitude to hair care in the shower has changed as this mask actually has been working wonders on my hair. I applied it and left it a few minutes whilst I did the other shower stuff and then washed it out. Instantly my hair felt silkier, smoother, more tame and not as knotty. As I expected once dry it was easy to work with and was less knotty and actually felt smooth to the touch. I was able to go a couple of days wearing my hair done until it went greasy. 

I had never heard of this shampoo and hair mask before, but am so happy I've now been introduced as I will be hunting this down. I'm not sure I'll purchase the shampoo, but the hair mask is one of the nicest I've used. 

Do you use hair masks? Or have you tried this brand before?

  1. I really need to get into using hair masks, my hair is such a knotty matted mess when it's wet from too much colouring over the years! Do you use a wide toothed comb to work through your conditioner in the shower? I've found that's made a big difference to mine :)

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
