How I Keep My Long Hair Healthy

Posted on: Tuesday, 21 October 2014

Whilst I love having long hair, it can be a complete pain in the neck to keep in good condition. Coupled with the fact that my hair is incredibly fine and prone to almighty tangling issues, means it's a daily battle to prevent split ends, keep it shiny and stop it looking lank and dull. In my opinion decent hair care should be just as much of a priority as good skincare, and over the last few years and many a trial-and-error testing, I've finally found a haircare routine that really works for me.

REN Flash Rinse 1-Minute Facial | 75ml | £32 here

The latest innovation from REN comes in the form of the Flash Rinse 1-Minute Facial: a "transforming", one minute treatment that promises to revitalise and rejuvenate the skin. Containing Vitamin C (this smells just like those dissolvable Vitamin C tablets), Boswellic Acid and Glycogen Magnesium, it's designed to counteract that nasty 'urban grey' - a REN-coined term for that pallid, dull look skin suffers when exposed to day-to-day free radicals like pollution. REN says it leaves skin looking 'firm, toned and smoothed,' whilst adding in some anti photo-ageing benefits and giving skin a radiant glow.

It's not often I'm keen to review anything 'miniature' sized, as I feel it doesn't always give an accurate representation of how the product works long-term. Some things I've been instantly wowed by have petered out into being, well, a bit rubbish, hence why I like to be able to use things over a considerable period of time before giving my thoughts (and why I get a bit peeved with tiny, one-use samples. And reviews of tiny, one-use samples).

L'Oreal Professionnel Solar Sublime After Sun Shampoo
L'Oreal's After Sun Shampoo pumps moisture into hair that's been parched by the sun whilst cleansing it of residue from sand, salt and chlorine. It contains Vitamin E, Mexoryl S.O. and glycerol which work to nourish and hydrate the hair and scalp. Although this is a 250ml it's packaged in a small bottle so it's not going to take up too much room in your suitcase!

Fail-Safe Fake Tans

Posted on: Thursday, 26 June 2014

It's that time of year again - fake tan season. If you're pasty like me, you'll rely on bottle after bottle of fake tan to ensure it's acceptable that you leave the house. Over the years I've come to learn what works for me and what doesn't tanning-wise: here's a run down of my favourites...
