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 :)

    1. Thanks for advice on using a wide toothed comb! I've been told that helps but I'm yet to try it out. Honestly I can't explain how much nicer my hair is after using a hair mask too!! xo

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

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
