Happy New Year! New Hair :)

Heyy Beauties,

Happy New Year to all!! :)

So for the first blog post of 2013 I am going to show you my new hair color. I have been contemplating since last Summer to change my hair color, however I was quite scared because the color that I wanted is quite risky, needs maintenance and is not such a natural color.

However, for the new year I decided to just take the plundge and do it, so yesterday I went to my usual hairdresser. The following pictures are my hair before and after. Beware: there is quite a difference hehe.

Hair Old

Hair New

Before, I had a dark kind of brown, but then with washing it it became quite dull. The new color is between orange and red. At first I had quite a shock when looking at the result for the first time, but then I got used to it. I really like this color and I think it is quite unique.

What do YOU think?  I am very interested to know your opinions :)

Review: The Body Shop Banana Conditioner

Hello Beauties :)

The Body Shop: Banana Conditioner
Today, I will be reviewing one of my Holy GraiI hair item. My hair is fairly thick, wavy, oily roots and dry ends. I use this conditioner mainly on week days because I do not heat style my hair during the week. This is quite a heavy conditioner however it does not weigh your hair down, nor does it make it filmy or greasy. It leaves my hair super soft and healthy especially the ends. I use this conditioner in conjunction with my Joico Smooth Cure shampoo as it is paraben free like the Banana Conditioner. Together, they defriz my hair wonderfully. I use the Banana conditioner similar as a deep treatment; I put the conditioner from my ears down, comb it through with a wood wide tooth comb (to prevent breakage) and eventually put it in a bun leaving it for about 7 mins. I always make sure I am using cold water to rinse it out. Regarding the scent, it smells too sweet, but it does not linger in my hair. I would prefer this conditoner to have a pump instead of squeezing the product out, since it is quite a thick conditioner as I have to open the top to scoop out some of the product. 

I would recommend this conditioner for any hair type, especially with dry hair and for those who use heat tools constantly. 

Take Care,
