Sorry I have been away for a week, I was going through some personal stuff last week and didn’t really feel like doing anything, including posting. Although I do have some good news, I am starting a new job next week and it’s permanent so I have a little more job security. It’s also fewer hours than my last job so I’ll have more time on my hands. I’m quite anxious about starting, new environments and people and all that but I’m crossing my fingers that all goes well.
Today I’m reviewing some hair care products from Superdrug. This is another post that I lost all the photos for, hopefully, the last old posts I have left will be done before the end of June so I can get back to showing you pictures of what I’ve reviewed.
Whilst I like my usual basic shampoo I like to switch things up once in a while so when I saw this new grapefruit and papaya scent in their Extracts range I snapped it up. The shampoo has a really powerful scent, and I really enjoyed it. It was like being transported to summer on a tropical island and actually it’s really cheered me up on long dark winter nights. My hair is left feeling really clean and soft, but it’s also a formulation for fine hair which is perfect for me. I felt like it wasn’t as full as their Pro Vitamin arginine shampoo but it definitely gave my hair a lift and I was pretty pleased with that. The 400ml bottle is £2.99 which I would say is excellent value. I’d really like to try the aloe and mango one next.
Recently I’ve been making a little more effort to style my hair on my days off, especially now I have a chopstick curler. I was happy to see that Superdrug had a heat protection spray in their Expertise range because I’m really conscious of how damaging heat can be and I rarely use heat on my hair, not even a hair dryer. I found the spray fairly easy to use but would have preferred and aerosol type application as I feel it would have been easier to coat the hair evenly. I definitely feel like my hair was protected by the spray, with little to no signs of damage, and I will continue to use it before all future styling sessions. The 300ml bottle is £2.99.
I also picked up a hairspray from the Expertise range, one which adds a volumising effect, something which I really think I need. I like to use this product for setting a style as my hair likes to stay straight, but I also think it’s great to hang my head upside down and spray it on unstyled hair for a quick boost when I’m feeling lazy. The 150ml bottle is £2.99.
Finally, I picked up a bottle of firm hold mousse, I haven’t used mousse in ages but it was a staple when I used to go out clubbing. This mousse offers great volume after a blowout and holds really well throughout the day. It also leaves my hair looking healthy and shiny. At £1.29 for the 300ml bottle, it’s definitely a bargain.
