Just moved in, aka haircare products haul

Hi girls,

it is a very headachy and lazy Sunday for me, however, I feel like I haven’t blogged for a while, and even though I have quite interesting post ready for you, I can’t post it yet, since I am waiting on couple final details. So I looked around, and thought, why won’t I show you the last things I bought, and tell you my first impressions. Somehow, I have been buying a lot of things for my hair, since I am on the mission to grow them back.

I am sorry about the photo, I couldn’t figure out how to compose it properly, but I will show each bottle properly in other posts.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t leave The Body Shop without buying at least one thing, especially if I am out in the city on ‘it is all about me’ shopping or walking tour. So let me start by two of the things I picked up there. I have dyed my hair probably about half a year ago, and I still have nice blond highlights. However, I don’t want to redye them to avoid any damage, so I picked up a “Rain Forest” hair treatment, which is supposed to brighten my highlights. I was bought by scent of it, it is very easy, but sweet, fruity scent, I would say it smells as grapes. I used it once so far, so I am not sure if it did anything for my highlights, however, it did leave my hair very smooth and soft.

Another thing I picked up in The Body Shop was a coconut oil hair shine. I have to admit I picked it up just because I really want something coconut smelling for my hair, and it was the only product with coconut scent I managed to find in Denmark. I tried it once on my hair, and once on boyfriend’s hair. It did leave our hair shiny, and smelling nice, and I believe it should also give it a silky feeling, however, that is just an initial impression.

I have also placed an order from this page just because they have nice deals, and I wanted to try some of the products. The orange bottle in the back is an Orofluido shampoo. I have a Orofluido beauty oil and am extremely happy about it, so I wanted to try shampoo as well. However, after one use I am a little bit doubtfull about it, because it felt like it reduced my hair volume, but I will continue using it and tell you how it goes.

Another shampoo is in the arty bottle and it is by ghd. I sometimes have issues with an itchy scalp and I hoped that this shampoo would help. However, after one time use, I didn’t really see that much of the effect, and I feel like it didn’t do anything at all for my hair, but it can as well be a faulty first impression. Also, the smell for me is too ‘shampooish’, if you know what I mean :). I feel like I am getting picky..

Now my hair is pretty straight, and I don’t really have too much problems with knots, however, I have one specific place, where no matter what I do, it tights itself to a knot, and it is very hard (and painfull) to brush out. So I picked up a detangler from John Masters organics. I really like the smell of it, surprise suprise, it is citrus and neroli. It left my hair silky, however, it didn’t work on the specific problem after one use, and made my hair oily.

I haven’t tried the 60sec by Goldwell yet, so I don’t have that much to say except for the fact, that the smell of it, is a little bit spicy, and maybe even manly, but hopefully, it does wonders on your hair.

I haven’t tried the mask by Maria Nila either, just because I need to convince myself to overcome the smell, which I am not very happy about. I can’t figure out what it smells of, but it is putting me off a little.

And the last product, is somehow related to hair, it a lash renewal serum by L’oreal Paris. I have tried it couple of times before putting make up on, you are also supposed to use it at night. It should give you thicker and longer lashes, and strengthen them as well. Around fall time I start losing my eyelashes, so I thought that would be a nice way to protect that. However, it might be alergising my eyes a little bit, since I get an itchy feeling in the corner of my eye. I can’t say for sure, since I was trying couple of new mascaras as well, we will just have to wait and see.

I am sorry for sounding so pesimistic in this blog post, however, it is just initial impressions, and noone knows, maybe in the long run I will love each and every of those products, don’t worry, you will for sure be informed about that. Hope you have a fantastic Sunday! Let me know, what do you use on your hair, and what is your favorite product, or a recent purchase?
