Hair Haul :)

As I've gotten to the stage where i nearly had to cut open my conditioner bottle to salvage the last few washes from it i realised i was long overdue a trip to Capital. Capital Hair and Beauty is a salon wholesalers where brands such as Tigi, Wella, Loreal and Macadamia are all at a lower price. Sadly you need a trade card to purchase anything from there but if you have a Hairdresser or Beauty Therapist as a friend it's definitely worth convincing them to take you! I generally go 2 - 3 times a year to stock up on Tigi and hair dye as both me and my Mum have a card.

I've been using the same shampoo (Tigi Superstar) and conditioner for for a good two years and as my hair has gone through a lot of stress getting it from black to bright red i thought it was time for a change!

Tigi Bed Head - Dumb Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner:
"Salvage the wreckage with this protein packed moisturizer including wheat, soy, keratin and Pro-Vitamin B-5 complex.  
  • Repairs and moisturizes without adding weight
  • Helps to protect and retain colour
  • Calms static. "

    I've generally stayed away from products that claim to repair or moisturise hair as i do love to have big hair and in the past products have made back brushing or any sort of volume impossible! But on first go with this my hair feels lovely, not heavy or coated. Although i may have to completely forsake back brushing to get my hair back into shape as much as that may annoy the heck out of me! This like all of the Tigi products smells lovely! And for only £14 + VAT was a steal!

    Macadamia Deep Repair Masque:
    "Macadamia Deep Repair Masque is a revitalizing hair reconstructor for dry, damaged hair. A combination of macadamia oil and argan oil along with tea tree oil, chamomile oil, aloe and algae extracts rejuvenate and rebuild the hair, leaving the hair deeply nourished for improved elasticity and shine with long-lasting conditioning benefits."
    This was a little pricier at £13.35 + VAT and can cost much much more in salons and online. There has been a lot of reviews on this product already and i was surprised to say I'm not that keen on the scent. Guessing with the name i was expecting a more subtle nutty fragrance not quite a strong floral one. It's not unpleasant just not what i was expecting. I left this on for about 10 minutes and it did leave my hair lovely and soft without looking limp or feeling weighed down. I'll do a full review when I've given this a thorough test as I'm interested to see if it lives up to the hype!

    Tigi - Queen for a Day Thickening Spray: This has been one of my all time favourite products for years! It smells absolutely divine and does exactly what it says on the tin! Gives your hair lots of volume without making it sticky or heavy! Makes my hair perfect for back brushing (bad i know :P ). If I've used a mediocre shampoo and conditioner i can save my hair with a quick few sprays of this and get a lovely amount of volume back! I love love love this! I think this is just over £6 + VAT. I'd highly recommend checking this one out.

    Crazy Color Hair Dye - Fire Red:
    It's pretty boring for me now since I've been using this colour for way over a year now i love it that much. I use Majirel Mix in Red every 6-8 weeks on my roots then apply this every 2-3 weeks. I know every fortnight sounds like a lot of hassle but the upkeep on bright red hair is a lot of effort. I used to get about 3 applications from this bottle but now i get about 2 since my hairs grown and i have less patience applying it and just slap it on my head! It costs £2.50 but I've seen it online from £1.99. A lot of people use other dyes for vibrant colours but as this one is super cheap and does the job I'll stick to it! Although my bathroom, towels, neck, clothes are nearly always pink! But it does wash straight out of towels and clothes which is a good thing! The other great thing about Crazy Color is that it comes in  a ton of shades! I've been eyeing up the blue for quite a while now  i just haven't got the guts!

    I got some pretty boring things as well like a new hair brush, some clips and some random dye as they didn't have my regular permanent dye in stock! I spent well over £50 in total and luckily i had my lovely Dad and his credit card on hand to get a few bits for me!

    I've also purchased some other random hair products recently which I'll do a rant and rave post on in the next few days!

    Thanks for reading! :)
