ORGANIC SHOP: SZAMPON MAROKANSKA KSIEŻNA

Szampon marokanska ksiezna jest moim kolejnym nabytkiem od firmy Organic shop. Produkt okazal sie na tyle dobry, ze zamierzam go kupic ponownie.

szampon marokanska ksiezna butelka


Wedle producenta szampon marokanska ksiezna jest idealny do wlosow, ktore sa zmeczone, zniszczone i suche. Szampon ma zregenerowac tego typu wlosy za pomoca organicznego ekstraktu z kwiatu pomaranczy oraz organicznej oliwy, ktora odzywi wlosy od cebulek az po ich konce. Szampon  jest bogaty w witaminy i mineraly, dzieki ktorym struktura wlosa zostanie wygladzona, rozdwojone koncowki wlosow beda zreperowane, a problem  przesuszenia zniknie. Dodatkowo wlosy stana sie miekkie i blyszczace. Brzmi niezle, prawda?  Choc musze Wam przyznac, ze produkt ten wybralam nie tyle ze wzgledu na jego opis, co zapach, ktory jest niesamowity. Nie potrafie Wam go opisac, ani do niczego przyrownac, trzeba samemu powachac. Trzymajac szampon w dloni wyobrazilam sobie, nie wiedziec czemu, slniace w swietle ksiezyca wlosy marokanskiej ksiezniczki:).

Szampon jest w 99% naturalny. Ma certyfikat eko- BDIH (cosmos natural).  Brak SLS, parabenow i silikonow. Nie testowany na zwierzetach.

Moje przemyslenia na temat szamponu marokanska ksiezna

Szampon oprocz tego, ze pieknie pachnie, to nie podraznia skory glowy, co wazne dla osob, ktore musza czesto myc wlosy, maja wrazliwy skalp albo jedno i drugie. Wiele szamponow drogeryjnych potrafi wysuszyc skalp na wior doslownie :(.  Szampon, jak na produkt naturalny, calkiem niezle sie pieni. Nie wysusza wlosow, pozostawia je czystymi, ale nie sa one tak czyste, ze az skrzypia. Kosmetyk jest lagdny, nadaje sie do czestego stosowania. Nie zauwazylam jakichs niesamowitych wlasciwosci pielegnujacych szamponu, ale z drugiej strony producenci zawsze przekonuja nas o takowych, a przeciez zadaniem szamponu jest dobrze umyc wlosy, a jednoczesnie im nie zaszkodzic czy to przez przesuszenie, czy tez podraznienie skory glowy. Wlasciwosci pielegnacyjne powinien miec balsam, maska czy serum do wlosow. Dlatego po umyciu wlosow szamponem marokanska ksiezna trzeba uzyc odzywki.

Posumowujac

Plusy:

-produkt naturalny z dobry skladem,

-nie testowany na zwierzetach,

-dosc dobrze sie pieni,

-lagodny, myje wlosy nie naruszajac bariery lipidowej skory, czyli moze byc czesto stosowany,

-piekny zapach,

-nie powoduje lupiezu, a wiec nadaje sie dla osob z wrazliwa skora glowy.

Minusy:

-nie spelnia obietnic producenta.

Mimo wszystko polecam ze wzgledu na jego lagodnosc, sklad i przystepna cene.

Pozdrawiam,

Maska do włosów. Awokado i miód. Avocado & honey. Organic shop.

Czesc i czolem,

dzis chcialabym przedstawic Wam maske do wlosow awokado i miod firmy Organic shop. Jest to moj pierwszy produkt z tej firmy, ale na pewno nie ostatni. Maske zuzylam do samego konca, wiec czuje sie gotowa do podzielenia sie z Wami moimi spostrzezeniami.


joannascosmetics-maska-do-wosow-awokado
Maska do włosów. Awokado i miód

Przy zakupie produktu kosmetycznego nie kieruje sie juz marka, ale nauczona doswiadczeniem, po prostu czytam sklad. Ta maska ma dobry sklad: 


maska-do-wosow-awokado-i-miod-avocado.html
Maska do włosów. Awokado i miód


Dodatkowo produkt ten ma stosunkowo niska cene, ale na szczescie w przypadku tego kosmetyku niska cena idzie w parze z jakoscia:). 

Jak stosowalam maske? Na poczatku tak jak zalecil producent, czyli trzymalam produkt na mokrych wlosach przez kilka minut i splukiwalam. Rezultat byl ok, ale zdecydowanie brakowalo efektu wow. Intuicja podpowiedziala mi, ze maske z takim skladem na pewno stac na wiecej. Doszlam do wniosku, ze skoro maska zawiera miod, to moze doloze go jeszcze wiecej. Tak tez sie stalo- kosmetyk zmieszalam z odrobina miodu, potem mix ten zaaplikowalam na nieumyte wlosy, po czym po okolo godzinie maske zmylam. Taki sposob aplikacji okazal sie strzalem w 10-tke. Po umyciu wlosy byly dociazone, nawilzone, zyskaly na objetosci. Dodatkowo latwo sie rozczeslywaly, byly sypkie, blyszczace i wygladzone. Przy regularnym stosowaniu poprawila sie ogolna kondycja moich wlosow, ktore wczesniej byly przesuszone i polamane na koncach. Kolejnym atutem maski jest jej zapach. 


Maska + miod

Jedyne co mi przeszkadzalo, to kiepskiej jakosci opakowanie zrobione z cienkiego plastiku. Pudelko spadlo mi raz na podloge i od razu ulamalo sie czesc wieczka, co widac na zdjeciu. Od tego momentu musialam postepowac z tym pudelkiem jak z jajkiem, co w malej lazience, wymagalo ode mnie nie lada akrobacji.


Maska do włosów. Awokado i miód



Podsumowujac

Plusy maski awokado&miod:

  • nawilza wlosy,
  • dodaje blasku,
  • wygladza,
  • odzywia,
  • ulatwia rozczesywanie,
  • przy regularnym uzyciu poprawia ogolna kondycje wlosow,
  • nie wzmaga przetluszczania sie wlosow.

Minusy:

- dostepnosc,
- kiepskiej jakosci opakowanie.

Maske te  zamierzam  kupic ponownie i polecam ja rowniez Wam.

Pozdrawiam,

Bentley Organic Frequent Use shampoo

Hello,
today I would like to review a  Bentley Organic Frequent Use shampoo. This shampoo is supposed to stimulate and revitalise the hair. It is made with 70% organic ingredients.

I am a fan of natural hair and body care and I am always happy to try something new.
In the past I have not had much luck with natural or organic shampoos. They were either irritating my scalp or overdrying my hair. And they were expensive as well. However, I wouldn't give up and kept searching for a decent natural shampoo. 
Bentley-Organic-Frequent-Use-shampoo-on-my-table
Bentley Organic Frequent Use shampoo

Recently I have found Bentley Organic Frequent Use shampoo.
I must tell you that I am really happy with this product. This shampoo is mild and doesn't irritate my scalp because it doesn't contain nasties like sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate:). Instead it contains many good ingredients like aloe vera, citrus oils, sunflower oil, chamomile flower oil and extract.

Bentley Organic shampoo is gentle enough to be used daily. After washing my hair is clean but not squeaky clean which means that this shampoo doesn't strip natural oils from the scalp.

The shampoo has a lovely citrus scent. It does not lather too much so you will need a generous amount of the product. This way the shampoo will not last you too long. Mine lasted about 3,5 weeks.
Bentley-Organic-Frequent-Use-shampoo-back-with-rose

Summary
Pros:

  • gentle 
  • good for daily use
  • doesn't irritate the scalp
  • washes the hair without stripping the scalp of its protective oils
  • contains natural, good ingredients
  • not drying
  • smells nice


Cons:

  • availability
  • watery consistency
  • doesn't last long
  • expensive (10 euros for a 250 ml bottle)
Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Lauryl Betaine, Decyl Glucoside, Xanthan Gum, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice Powder*, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil*, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil*, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract*, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile) Flower Oil*, Limonene*, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Extract, Levulinic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, Parfum*

* Certified Organically Grown Ingredient

I can recommend Bentley Organic Frequent Use shampoo to everybody because it is gentle, contains natural good ingredients and leaves the hair nice and clean.

Madara GLOSS AND VIBRANCY CONDITIONER

Hello,

today I am reviewing a Madara GLOSS AND VIBRANCY CONDITIONER. I am sorry to say that but this has been another disappointing product from Madara. Earlier I have tried and reviewed a Madara's Gloss and Vibrancy shampoo which gave me dandruff and made my head itch like crazy.
Still, I was hoping that Madara Gloss and Vibrancy conditioner would be a better product. It also has good reviews on the internet. And the manufacturer's description sounded promising.

Madara-gloss-and-vibrancy-conditioner-in-my-hand-with-a-rose
Madara GLOSS AND VIBRANCY CONDITIONER

The producer says that Gloss and Vibrancy conditioner will  nourish and strengthen the hair. It will prevent dry ends, calm down the scalp and give you silky hair. It is also supposed to help detangle the hair. Sounds good but...

Madara-gloss-and-vibrancy-conditioner-back-ingredients-with-my-rose
Madara GLOSS AND VIBRANCY CONDITIONER

In reality this conditioner is just average and certainly not worth the price - about 12 euros. When used together with a gentle shampoo (for example Bentley Organic shampoo for frequent use) it does help a bit with  detangling the hair.  It makes the hair  a bit smoother but apart from that Madara GLOSS AND VIBRANCY CONDITIONER doesn't do anything else.

Madara-gloss-and-vibrancy-conditioner-and-bentley-shampoo-with-my-rose

I mean it doesn't give enough of moisture, doesn't strengthen the hair, doesn't nourish the hair either.

I have also used Madara Gloss and Vibrancy Conditioner together with Gloss and Vibrancy shampoo, as recommended by the producer. I was hoping that maybe this combo will work better. Unfortunately it didn't. And my hair isn't too "demanding". It has natural colour, it is not damaged, not dry but it tangles easily. All I was looking for was a bit of moisture and detangling action.

Madara-gloss-and-vibrancy-conditioner-and-madara-shampoo-with-my-rose


A quick summary of Madara GLOSS AND VIBRANCY CONDITIONER:

Pros:
  • vegan
  • cruelty free
  • recycled bottle
  • natural ingredients
  • helps a bit with detangling the hair
  • smoothes the hair a bit

Cons:

  • price
  • doesn't hydrate the hair
  • no strengthening action
  • no promised silkiness

Ingredients: Aqua, Cetearyl Alcohol, Distearylethyl, Dimonium Chloride, Betaine, Glycerin, D-panthenol, Betula Alba, Lactic Acid, Vaccinium Macrocarpon, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Benzyl Alcohol, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Aroma, Limonene.

I don't recommend this product at all. If you want a good natural conditioner go for Sante Brilliant Care hair conditioner or Faith in Nature Ginko Biloba.

Mial byc hit, jest kit: Fitomed Odzywka ekstraziolowa do wlosow koloryzowanych z rumiankiem.

Witam serdecznie,


dzis chcialabym Wam zrecenzowac odzywke ekstraziolowa Fitomed do wlosow koloryzowanych z rumiankiem i slonecznikiem. Tak jak w tytule, nastawilam sie na hit, a okazalo sie, ze odzywka nie robi nic, albo prawie nic dla moich wlosow.

Naczytalam sie pozytywnych opinii na temat firmy Fitomed i uparlam sie, zeby zakupic te wlasnie rumiankowa odzywke.

Fitomed-odzywka-ekstraziolowa-z-rumiankiem-do-wlosow-koloryzowanych-z-roza
Fitomed odzywka ekstraziolowa z rumiankiem

Choc odzywka przeznaczona jest do wlosow farbowanych, a ja mam naturalne, to przy zakupie kierowalam sie glownie skladem kosmetyku. Bardzo lubie naturalne, a przede wszystkim rumiankowe specyfiki. A odzywka Fitomedu ma rumianek bardzo wysoko w skladzie, zaraz po wodzie.

Wedle producenta odzywka ma zmniejszyc lamliwosc wlosow oslabionych po koloryzacji, pogrubic je, przyspieszyc ich porost i ulatwic rozczesywanie. Dalej producent rozpisuje sie o dluzej utrzymujacym sie jasnym kolorze fryzury i nadaniu jej pieknego, zlocistego polysku.
Aktywnymi skladniki odzywki sa: wyciag z koszyczka rumianku i platkow slonecznika o zwiekszonej zawartosci barwnika, d-pantenol oraz witamina E.

Fitomed-odzywka-ekstraziolowa-z-rumiankiem-do-wlosow-koloryzowanych-w-dloni-mojej
Fitomed odzywka ekstraziolowa z rumiankiem

Ja niestety nie zauwazylam zadnych efektow, to znaczy ani pozytywnych ani negatywnych. Doslownie jakbym w ogole nie stosowala odzywki. Po umyciu wlosow nakladalam kosmetyk na kilka minut i czekalam az sie wchlonie.  Niestety juz w trakcie splukiwania nie czuc bylo, zebym nalozylam odzywke. Wlosy byly dalej splatane.
Probowalam uzywac odzywki jako produkt bez splukiwania i tu wydaje mi sie dzialanie bylo lepsze. W minimalnym stopniu  ulatwiala ona rozczesywanie.

Jak wspomnialam wczesniej, moje wlosy maja naturalny kolor. Jest to typowy polski ciemny blond. Latem wlosy nabieraja ladnego zlotawego odcienia, ale zima niestety zamieniam sie w szara mysz(:. Nie ukrywam, ze liczylam na to, ze za pomoca tej odzywki uda mi sie nieco "rozweselic" wyglad czupryny. Producent wspominal przeciez o nadaniu fryzurze zlotego polysku.

Dlatego kilka razy pokusilam sie o zrobienie nastepujacego eksperymentu: na jedno pasmo nakladalam dosc duza ilosc odzywki i zostawialam ja na caly dzien. Chcialam sprawdzic czy rzeczywiscie pasmo bedzie jasniejsze, bardziej blyszczace...a gdzie tam. Eksperyment ten powtarzalam kilka razy-zero zmian. Lepiej dziala zwykle plukanie wlosow rumiankiem.

Fitomed-odzywka-ekstraziolowa-z-rumiankiem-do-wlosow-koloryzowanych-sklad
Fitomed odzywka ekstraziolowa z rumiankiem


Plusem jest, ze odzywka nie obciaza wlosow, ale po co ja w ogole uzywac, skoro nie daje ona zadych efektow? Mam wrazenie, ze gdybym zdala sie tylko na te odzywke, kierowana obietnicami producenta, to  pewnie mialabym teraz siano na glowie. Mimo tego, ze moje wlosy sa ogolnie w dobrej kondycji. Jedyne czego chcialam, to lekkiego nawilzenia i ulatwienia w rozczesywaniu, gdyz moje wlosy maja niestety sklonnosc do koltunienia sie. Szczegolnie teraz, kiedy temperatura powietrza jest niska i musze codziennie nosic czapke.

Odzywki Fitomedu szkoda mi bylo wyrzucac do kosza, bo w koncu ma dobry sklad  i zdobycie jej kosztowalo mnie troche czasu. Wpadlam wiec na pomysl, zeby stosowac ja jako produkt bazowy, tzn.:jako zageszczacz (ale slowo, istne zageszczenie "sz" i "cz":)) do mieszania z innymi skladnikami: olejami, miodem, etc. I tu sprawdzila sie bardzo dobrze, dlatego na zdjeciach prezentuje pusta butelke. Ufff, udalo sie zuzyc do konca:).

Fitomed-odzywka-ekstraziolowa-z-rumiankiem-do-wlosow-koloryzowanych-na-dloni
Na zdjeciu widac, ze konsystencja jest dosc wodnista

Plusem jest, ze odzywka ma przyjemny, delikatny zapach, choc pachnie bardziej slonecznikem niz rumiankiem.

Podsumowujac ekstraziolowa odzywka Fitomedu z rumiankiem nie odzywia, nie pogrubia, nie przyspiesza porostu wlosow. Minimalnie ulatwia rozczesywanie. Odzywka ma rzadka konsystencje, wiec jest malo wydajna. Ciezko ja dostac. Ladnie pachnie. 
Wydaje mi sie, ze skoro odzywka nie zrobila nic dla moich naturalnych wlosow, to tym bardziej nie pomoze osobom z wlosami przesuszonymi farbowaniem. Ogolnie, nie polecam.



Skladniki: Aqua, Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract, Helianthus Annus Officinalis Flos, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth-20, Dipalmitoylethyl Hydroxyethylmonium Methosulfate, Glycerin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Panthenol, Parfum, Phenoxyethanol(and)-Ethylhexylglycerin.

Pozdrawiam i dziekuje za uwage.

Madara Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo

Hello,
how are you? Today I am reviewing a Madara GLOSS AND VIBRANCY SHAMPOO. I am sorry to say that but this shampoo is a big NO NO for me. It basically irritated my scalp so badly that I got dandruff:(.
Madara-Gloss-and-Vibrancy-Shampoo-in-my-hand
Madara Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo

But let me say a few words about Madara company. Madara is a Latvian company producing natural and ecological cosmetics. They have ECOCERT certificate. Their cosmetics are not tested on animals and they are trying to obtain a Leaping Bunny certificate. They are using recycled packaging materials. I actually like their packaging a lot: it is mainly green or white, minimalistic yet elegant. 

Madara-Gloss-and-Vibrancy-Shampoo-in-my-hand-and-lamp
Madara Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo


But back to the shampoo. The producer claims that Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo will clean the hair in a gentle way. The hair will be protected and it will have more volume. It will also become stronger, silkier and shiny. Ehem...
For best results they recommend to use this shampoo with Madara Gloss and Vibrancy Conditioner which I have bought as well. I am going to write a review about it later.
Why did I buy Madara  Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo? Mainly because I have read good reviews about it. I remember that one of the bloggers wrote that this shampoo has even helped them with oily scalp. I was sold:). I had really high hopes for  this shampoo. Other thing is that Madara is quite popular here in Finland.

Madara-Gloss-and-Vibrancy-Shampoo-in-my-hand-showing-ingredients
Madara Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo

After the first application my scalp felt really irritated, it became  itchy and the skin started to peel. I didn't want to believe that this was happening because of the Madara's shampoo. I was trying to convince myself that this was normal, that the shampoo was removing some buildup from the scalp. Only I was not really sure what kind of buildup that would be because I  use neither styling products nor silicons.
Full of hope I washed my hair again- the same thing happened: itchy scalp and dandruff. All together I have tried six times and it always made my head itchy (and scratchy:)) and gave me a lot of dandruff. 
I have stopped using Madara  Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo but it took some time for my scalp to eventually calm down.
Why it all has happened? I think because this shampoo cleanses the hair TOO well, in a rather aggressive wayThis is all quite ironic because producer says that this shampoo will clean your hair in a gentle way. Instead you get the hair stripped of natural, protective oils ( but it is indeed clean, squeaky clean).
The only nice thing about this shampoo is its smell. 
A quick summary:
Pros:

  • nice fresh smell
Cons:

  • irritated my scalp enormously
  • gave me dandruff
  • tangled the hair 
  • the price-over 12 euros
I do not recommend Gloss and Vibrancy Shampoo from Madara at all. It does nothing good to the hair, on the contrary it may irritate your scalp and give you dandruff. Better save yourself the money, and save yourself the disappointment.
Ingredients: Aqu,a Sodium Coco Sulfate, Coco Glucoside, Rosa Damascena, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glyceryl Oleate, Betaine, Betula Alba, Vaccinium Macrocarpon Benzyl Alcohol,Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Chloride, Citric Acid, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein ,Sodium Benzoate, Brassicyl Isoleucinate Esylate Brassica Alcohol, ,Fragrance,Limonene,Linalool, Geraniol, Farnesol, Citronellol, Citral.

Schwarzkopf Gliss Ultimate Volume Hair Conditioner

Hello,

how are you?  The best thing about this Schwarzkopf Gliss Kur Ultimate Volume Hair Conditioner with Sea Collagen is that it doesn't contain the silicons so it will not weigh down your hair:). Also I have read good reviews about this hair conditioner so I have decided to check it out. 

Gliss-Kur-Ultimate-Volume-Hair-Conditioner-with-a-rose-on-my-table
Gliss Kur Ultimate Volume Hair Conditioner 
According to the producer the Gliss Kur Ultimate Volume Hair Conditioner is good for fine, flat and damaged hair.
The producer also says that the conditioner has a new formula that will  repair damaged area on the surface and deep inside the hair. Hmmm..., I don't believe that the conditioner can repair the hair inside but definitely it can improve the look of the hair.
a-back-of-Gliss-Kur-Ultimate-Volume-Hair-Conditioner-with-a-rose-on-my-table
Gliss Kur Ultimate Volume Hair Conditioner 

My hair is oily, delicate and rather demanding in terms of the hair care. For those reasons, for the last couple of years, in my hair care routine,  I have been trying to use as many natural products as possible. Unfortunately they are often expensive or don't provide enough of  moisture:(. Recently I have been fed up with natural shampoo and conditioner from Madara, which are very expensive and don't do much to my hair. That is why sometimes I still buy drugstore hair care products, like Schwarzkopf Gliss Kur Ultimate Volume Hair Conditioner with Sea Collagen.
This conditioner is really good and cheap. My hair likes it a lot,  I can feel that during the application my hair literally "drinks" it. After the application my hair is soft, bouncy and easy to manage:).

Pros:
  • conditioner contains collagen, panthenol (vit.B) and keratin
  • no silicons
  • nice mild smell (it doesn't linger)
  • adds volume
  • shiny, bouncy hair
  • adds moisture
  • hair is soft 
  • hair is easy to comb
  • doesn't weight down the hair
  • cheap
 Cons:

  • none

Ingredients: Aqua, Cetearyl Alcohol, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Panthenol, Cocodimonium Hydroxypropyl Hydrolyzed Keratin, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Isopropyl Myristate, behonoyl PG-Trimonium Chloride, Citric Acid, VP/VA Coplymer, Phenoxyethanol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Sodium Methylparaben, Hexylene Glycol, Parfum, Polyquaternium-37, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Amyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Linalool, Benzyl Salicylate. 

I would recommend Gliss Kur Ultimate Volume Hair Conditioner  to anyone.

Must have hair products: Tangle Teezer and Invisibobble Traceless Hair Ring

Hey,

today I am reviewing must have hair products for the hair: Tangle Teezer and Invisibobble Traceless Hair Ring. In my opinion every woman should have them because they will improve the condition of the hair almost instantly. 


Tangle-teezer-with-my-invisibobble-on-my-table
Tangle teezer and invisibobble

The tangle teezer is a great alternative to traditional hair brushes. 
It does not have the handle, but it will adapt to the shape of your hand

The brush itself is a brilliant invention and a revolution in a hair care. The tangle teezer will comb your hair nice, quickly and without the pulling. The process of combing will be gentle yet effective. It is especially important for those, who like me have thin and delicate hair. This type of hair tangles easily. Especially now, when I have to wear a hat my hair tangles very easy. 


Tangle-teezer-with-my-hand
Tangle teezer 

In my opinion Tangle teezer works the best when used on towel dried hair.

Tangle teezer works perfectly on children's hair, which is very delicate.

Another good thing is that after a long term use  I have not noticed any damage to my hair.

Tangle teezers are available in many different styles and colours.
You can buy tangle original, salon elite or compact styler. Compact styler is the best for the travellings and for the handbag. It won't break when it falls to the floor.
I own Salon Elite tangle teezer in neon pink and orange. The colours are shockingly bright but at least the brush is very easy to find:). Of course you can go for "calmer" option:).

Tangle Teezer Salon Elite is a product I would recommend to all of you: women, children and men with long hair.


The second product I would like to recommend to everybody is an Invisibobble Traceless Hair Ring. This is a replacement for a traditional hair rubber which may cause a lot of damage to the hair. That was actually my case. The hairdresser could very easily notice the damage from the hair band so when I found an Invisibobble hair ring I was more than happy:). I was extremely happy.


Invisibobbles-on-my-table
Invisibobbles
Invisibobble hair ring has kind of a cosmic look and it was apparently inspired by the shape of the telephone cord. Here I will quote the producer because he explains it all in a very clear way: " when the hair ring is wrapped around the hair, it places uneven pressure around the circumference of the ponytail; standard hair rings put even pressure on the hair, leaving an obvious mark. The uneven pressure produced by the Invisibobble allows for the hair to be held strongly in the ponytail without being too tight"

The Invisibobbles come in different colours.


Invisibobbles-on-my-hand
Invisibobbles

My opinion:
I have been using Invisibbobles for over a year now and I feel I can share my experience with you:

  • Invisibobble Traceless Hair Rings is very comfortable to wear 
  • it will not pull on your hair
  • it will not pull on your scalp either (no headaches)
  • it won't damage your hair
  • Invisibobble is flexible
  • will last long time. In my case after after about 10 months of everyday's use the Invisibibble has stretched. And although the stretch is irreversible  I can still wear it. 

In other words invisibboble means no hair/scalp pulling, no headaches, no hair damage:).

I highly recommend Invisibobble Traceless Hair Rings:).

Natural World hair conditioner with argan oil

Hello, 

today I would like to review for you a great moisturizing hair conditioner with argan oil, from Natural World.The conditioner has a creamy formula and contains argan oil which is certified organic. I could write a lot about the properties of the argan oil, but I will mention only that this Moroccan oil is particularly rich in nourishing vitamin E and antioxidants. For centuries, it has been used by the Berber women. I am sure that your hair will love it. 



natural-world-moroccan-argan-oil-hair-conditioner-with-rose-on-my-kitchen-table
Natural world moisture repair hair conditioner with argan oil


After application your hair will be moisturized, soft and shiny as silk. I can assure you that application after application your hair condition will be improving:). And there are two extremely good things about Moroccan argan oil, Moisture Repair Conditioner from Natural World: it has great ingredients:

Natural world moisture repair hair conditioner with argan oil ingredients

and the price: about 5 euros  with a capacity of 500 ml :). 

I strongly recommend it.

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle reconstructor hair conditioner review

Hello,
how are you? Today I would like to review a famous 3 Minute Miracle Hair Reconstructor from an Australian company Aussie.

aussie-3-minute-miracle-hair-reconstructor-on-my-table-with-a-christmas-card
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor

This hair conditioner smells of a bubble gum and it will remind you of a childhood. The conditioner has a thick consistency and pink colour. It actually looks like a pink pudding:).

aussie-3-minute-miracle-hair-reconstructor-on-my-table-with-a-christmas-card-closer-look
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor

I prefer using natural hair conditioners and shampoos but when I need something "stronger" with silicons then I use this hair conditioner. Sometimes I use it just because I like how it smells:). 

Pros:

  • soft hair
  • adds shine
  • the hair smells really nice and the smell lingers for hours
  • it won't weight down your hair
  • very efficient, only small amount is needed
  • hair is easier to brush
  • it will add bounce to your hair
  • contains melissa officinalis leaf extract (Australian mint balm) and aloe barbadensis leaf juice which have moisturizing, protective and healing properties for the hair and the scalp
Cons:
  • the price
  • contains silicons, alcohol and all four parabens (propylparaben, isobutylparaben, ethylparaben , butylparaben)
  • it will not reconstruct your hair
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor

The Aussie 3 Minute Miracle reconstructor hair conditioner will improve your hair condition but it will not reconstruct your hair, especially if the hair is very damaged from bleaching or straightening. For the hair reconstruction I would recommend using oils regularly, for example olive, coconut or castor oil. But, still sometimes the only solution is to cut off the dry, damaged parts of the hair.
Overall, Aussie 3 Minute Miracle reconstructor is a decent but pricey hair conditioner with relatively good ingredients but if you are tight on a budget go for something else.

List of ingredients: Aqua, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine , Stearyl Alcohol , Quaternium-18 , Bis-Aminopropyl Dimethicone , Benzyl Alcohol , Cetearyl Alcohol , Hydroxypropyl Guar , Oleyl Alcohol , Glyceryl Stearate , Parfum , Propylene Glycol , Citric Acid , Polysorbate 60 , EDTA, Magnesium Nitrate , Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract , Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Phenoxyethanol,CI19140, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylparaben, Magnesium Chloride, CI 17200 , Methylisothiazolinone,Propylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Ethylparaben , Butylparaben , Ascorbic Acid, Sodium Benzoate , Sodium Sulfite , Potassium Sorbate

Timotei pure shampoo-good for the hair or good for the floor?

Hey,
how are you? I have noticed that most of the time I have been reviewing my favourite products but this is because I prefer to write about the happy things and the good products. This way hopefully I am creating a nice atmosphere.
But today I would like to review something that I don't like:). This is the Timotei pure shampoo. Maybe you know that I have oily scalp, greasy hair and I need to wash my hair almost every day. When I feel lazy I use a Batiste dry shampoo. But still I am hoping that one day I will find a shampoo which will help with my oily scalp and I will be able to wash the hair every second day:).

I have bought this product because I was a little bit disappointed at natural shampoos which are much more expensive but don't do much for my hair. In the shop I have spotted this "pure" shampoo for greasy and normal hair. I thought, well, it has "0" parabens, colourants and silicons plus it contains an organic green tea so it must be good. And, I forgot to mention it is cheap. Of course, I got it.

Is it any good? I don't think so. I don't expect miracles from the shampoo but it should at least clean the hair properly, especially that it was created for the oily hair
Here is my opinion:

Pros:

  • price
  • availability
Cons:
  • it doesn't clean the hair properly
  • weights the hair down
  • annoying smell (I certainly doesn't smell like a green tea)

At this point I won't be writing about moisturizing or nourishing properties of this shampoo because this is what a decent conditioner should do. But what I wanted to accentuate is that this shampoo really doesn't wash the hair properly. After washing my hair was still feeling dirty and without the volume.
And because I didn't want to throw this shampoo away I decided to use it as a floor liquid cleaner. Now I am happy I have finally finished the bottle:). I would not recommend this product but still we are all different and I am sure that  some of you will find Timotei pure shampoo suitable. What are you experiences with this product? I am curious what are your favourite shampoos? Maybe someone would like to leave a comment?

Thank you for reading

Logona White Kaolin Lotus Flower Cleansing Gel, white clay review

Hi,
how are you? Do you know Logona White Kaolin Lotus Flower Cleansing Gel? What do you think about it?.It has white kaolin (clay) and suppose to be good for cleaning the skin and the hair.

I have just bought it because I have problem with very oily scalp. Basically I need to wash my hair everyday which is sometimes frustrating, especially now during winter. I have no time to wash my hair in the morning and I don't want to use a hair drier either so I wash the hair in the evening. But the following morning my hair is only "semi fresh".
I have tried many things to prolong the freshness of the hair: different shampoos, skipping conditioner, different diets ( I would like to write a long post about later) etc. but it hasn't really changed anything.

Yesterday I bought this  and I have used it already once and to my surprise it made my kind of dirty. I mean it left the hair covered with some kind of oily film? I don't know if I have done something wrong? I mean I have washed the hair twice, I have rinsed it really well and I have even skipped the conditioner because I didn't want that something else would interfere with this clay.

I forgot to mention that this has really good and few ingredients (Aqua (Water), Kaolin, Montmorillonite, Parfum (Essential Oils), Nelumbo Nucifera Extract, Limonene) and less is more in his case:).
What do you think? Have you had any experience with this product or kaolin in general? I would be glad if you could share it  with me. Thank you for reading.
