Hard-core hair spray

Pretty packaging grabs my attention all the time when I am shopping, and that’s exactly what happened when I was walking down the hair care aisle in Clicks one day and came across the Fudge Urban range. The rest of the … Continue reading

The perfect treat(ment) for your locks

inoar argan oil

 

Argan oil has been THE buzzword in hair care for quite some time now. I’m a huge fan of argan oil and couldn’t wait to try out the Inoar Argan Oil. The first thing you’ll notice when you open the bottle is the amazing smell this oil has – it’s so comforting! The oil is nice and thick so you don’t need to use a lot of it. I usually rough dry my hair and then pour a very small amount into my hands, rub them together and smooth the oil evenly throughout the strands. Then I rough dry a little more and blow dry it. If I don’t feel like drying my hair I just smooth the oil evenly throughout the strands and leave it to dry naturally. Once I have applied this oil I never have to worry about my hair going frizzy. It feels silky soft and has that amazing smell all day! I have been really happy with the results I’ve achieved after using this treatment oil.

Inoar’s Argan Oil is rich in vitamins and anti-oxidants and restores the shine and flexibility that your hair has lost. Repeatedly using styling products and tools (especially ones that heat up) can really damage your hair if you don’t protect it and nourish it. This treatment oil provides the moisturisation that your dry hair desperately needs and it does a great job at controlling frizziness!

You can order the Inoar Argan Oil from the Inoar website, by phoning (012) 686 7067 or emailing info.inoar@gmail.com.

2 of my favourite products from 2013

2 products I really fell in love with in 2013 (and can’t live without) are the Moroccanoil Treatment and Chanel Le Volume mascara.

The Moroccanoil Treatment has been praised for quite some time now and after I had tried the cheaper versions, which are not bad at all, I still longed to see what all the hype was about. I was lucky enough to receive a sample bottle at an event earlier in the year which I decided to use sparingly. I have wavy hair and have quite a bit of colour in it so my hair needed TLC urgently. The first thing I noticed about the Moroccanoil Treatment was its amazing smell . Not only did I notice it, people who have smelt my hair in passing have also complimented me on it. Secondly I noticed that I really didn’ t need to use much of the oil on my hair, unlike the cheaper versions which I tend to have to use a fair amount more. I either apply the oil to my hair after washing it and leave my hair to dry naturally – the great thing about the oil is it stops my hair from frizzing – or I apply it after I’ve blowdried or straightened it, smoothing all flyaways and adding a bit more shine. The oil is pricey but I treated myself to a large bottle last year for my birthday and I am happy to say it is worth every cent. It also comes in a small bottle which is great for when you travel so I purchased one of those too and have taken it with on a few trips. There are two different oils depending on whether you are blonde or a brunette so be sure to ask the stylist/salesperson which one is right for you. You can find the full Moroccanoil range at most hair salons.

Last year I attended a Chanel pop up shop with friends and we went home with goodie bags filled with products in sample sized treats. One of those treats was a sample of the Le Volume Mascara. I hadn’t tried the mascara immediately but friends of mine who had gone with me had and were raving about it. I have to say after the first time I used it I was completely hooked! The wand and bristles are designed in such a way that it’s super easy to apply the mascara, which really left my long lashes looking even longer! I instantly fell in love with Le Volume so I made sure I got one at duty free when I flew overseas in December. It is also a pricey product but worth it if you want to experience the ultimate lashes it leaves you with.
