Your hair is limp and lifeless

Hair looking limp and lifeless is a key sign that it needs some looking after from a professional. If you use lots of intense conditioning treatments, or dry shampoo is your best friend on no wash days, these can all leave your hair looking less than its best.

Your hairdresser will able to give you top tips to get your lacklustre locks back on top form in no time.

 

Drying takes forever

If it’s been a while since you last went to the salon, you’ll probably notice that your hair takes longer to dry. If you use a hairdryer, this extra heat won’t be doing your hair any good, and may lead to damage and split ends. Ask your hairdresser to take some weight out of your hair with layers and thinning techniques, and you’ll be feeling light and bouncy again in no time.

 

You have split ends

Split ends are the number one enemy of a good hair day. They can make your hair frizzy, dry and brittle. The best way to get rid of split ends is to chop them off, but your hairdresser will be able to give you top tips to keep them at bay in the future. Intense conditioning treatments, avoiding heat, and staying hydrated can all help to stop split ends forming.

Product Review: Zerreau Towel Off Strawberry Shampoo Foam

Towel Off Shampoo Foam Picture

I pay special attention to my hairstyles as you may have noticed already. I like to change my look every now and again, so I am always rocking 1 wig or hair extensions. Sometimes I struggle to find the time in between these hairstyles  to give my hair a good wash. Sometimes my wigs may need a good clean but I may not have the luxury of time to give it a good wash and let it dry. So when this Zerreau Towel Off Strawberry Shampoo Foam landed on my doorstep, I couldn’t wait to give it a go.

Zerreau Shampoo is a new shampoo that cleans your hair without water. It is not a leave in product and it is not a wash out product. It is nicely in between, all you have to do is towel dry.

Here is what the brand has to say about this product:

Zerreau is a new shampoo that cleans your hair without using water! It’s a towel-off wet foam that really cleans effectively. It also removes odours and ‘product’ such as hairspray, wax and gels. Zerreau leaves you with soft, clean, luscious locks wherever  you are!

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. The Strawberry Shampoo smells amazing.
  2. It is super convenient. All you have to do is spray, massage in and damp with a towel. It is great for when you are in a rush, on holidays, swimming, out and about on hot sweaty days, or when you just don’t have the patience or time for a proper wash.
  3. It cleans the hair perfectly. My hair felt very clean after using this shampoo.
  4. It can also be used on wigs and hair extensions.
  5. I love the packaging. So pretty and compact, easy to pop in a handbag or suitcase.
  6. It is available at Amazon, Superdrug, Sainsbury’s and Chemist Direct. Prices usually start from £3.99.
  7. It comes with a pump which is so handy.
  8. No alcohol or parabens.

Product Review: DECLÉOR Prolagene Lift – Intense Youth Concentrate

DECLÉOR Prolagene Lift - Intense Youth Concentrate Review Image

I have heard a lot of good things about DECLÉOR products but I never had the opportunity to try the products until some weeks ago. For my first DECLÉOR product, I decided to try a serum as my last serum just ran out. I choose the DECLÉOR Prolagene Lift – Intense Youth Concentrate to review, and it has been an amazing product. My first thoughts when I received the product was, how pretty and ‘clean’ the bottle was, and how I couldn’t wait to try this serum out for myself.

DECLÉOR Prolagene Lift – Intense Youth Concentrate Description –

A powerful, intensive firming treatment providing an instant and long-term lift

Especially formulated for mature skin that lacks firmness, this light, delicately scented concentrate delivers an immediate and noticeable lift. Containing the highest concentration of L-Proline Complex, it re-activates and boosts collagen production and tightens and strengthens the structure of the skin to act like a “cell lift”. Other key active ingredients include Iris Essential Oil to boost and protect the skin’s elasticity and suppleness, Hyaluronic Acids to fill in wrinkles both on the surface of the skin and deeper down, and a botanical tensing agent and micro-algae to tighten and smooth the epidermis. With no colouring agents or mineral oils, this gentle yet effective formulation is ideal to use on all skin types, including those with sensitive skin.

How to use

  1. Use as a 3 week intensive duo treatment in the morning and evening.  After cleansing, apply 2 drops to a cleansed face.

My thoughts are below:

PROS

  1. I love the packaging like I mentioned already.
  2. I love the light fragrance of this product. It smells so good.
  3. I have used it every morning and every night, on a cleansed face. I apply this serum just before I apply my moisturiser, and my skin looks a lot brighter and smoother now. I can see a massive difference in my skin.
  4. My face and neck feel well moisturised after applying this product.
  5. This serum helps to improve my skin elasticity and fullness.
  6. This serum is specially formulated for mature skin, but all skin types and tones can use it as well, which is fab.
  7. It is gentle enough to use on the sensitive skin. I know that because I have a sensitive skin and this product is gentle.
  8. It is a 30ml bottle, but you only need to use 2 drops morning, and 2 drops at night, so it goes a long way.
  9. This serum wakes up your face, and gives you a face lift!

CONS

  1. Some may find this DECLÉOR Prolagene Lift – Intense Youth Concentrate pricey at £62 for a 30ml bottle, but I believe it is worth every penny. You get what you pay for when it comes to skin care products. And I have realised that as far as skin care products are concerned, the more money you spend, the better the skin care product. However, you can grab this product at Beautifully Gorgeous (link above) for £51, saving you £11.

Have you tried this DECLÉOR Prolagene Lift – Intense Youth Concentrate before? What are your thoughts on this serum?
