So I often get compliments about my hair and that’s not only credit to my amazing hair dresser I have been going to for over 10 years but also a good haircare routine. So today I wanted to review a few different shampoo and conditioner combos I use and love. I will have three categories, an under $10 a bottle, under $20 and under $30. So there should be something to suit everyones budget. Lets get straight into it..
So today I am shining the spotlight on one of my favourite haircare brands, actually scratch that, my FAVOURITE haircare brand: Fudge. Fudge was created so people like you and me can ‘express ourselves’ and I have been using fudge hair products to create crazy colourful looks for years. My hairdresser stocks Fudge and it’s how I get my quirky hair fix when I want a pop of colour through my ends. (more…)
Today I will be reviewing Goldwell’s Blondes & Highlights 60 sec Treatment. I’m going to be honest with you, I have used the same shampoo and conditioner for around four years now. I had trialed and tested many products from more expensive brands to cheaper alternatives but with my blonde hair I found it hard to find a product that didn’t dry my hair and kill it. I have been using L’Oreal Elvives shampoo and conditioner for years now and after discovering how this product actually worked with my hair and didn’t make it straw-like and dry, I haven’t strayed since. So to trial Goldwell’s treatment I was skeptical to begin with as I’m a big believer of “don’t fix something that’s not broken”. What a disservice I have done by disregarding other products. This product is a game changer. Ask my hairdresser, she tried to get me to trial other different shampoos and conditioners and I have never strayed but thank goodness I gave this a go as the results are phenomenal.
If I had to describe my hair type I would say it’s quite frizzy, quite a lot of fly aways and typically wavy. I just thought that was how my hair was and how it would always be but I’m wrong.
To my complete surprise this treatment has tamed my frizzyness dramatically which I didn’t expect it to do at all. It feels soft and healthy and I honestly feel like one of those hair models on the ads with how silky smooth it’s looking. Even my mum has noticed a dramatic change of the appearance of my hair. It’s now easier to work with, I usually put my hair in a bun to avoid a frizzy ponytail but lately I’ve been rocking a silky smooth pony and I love it!
I haven’t been using it as a treatment though. Where it says to use it after you have shampooed your hair and to leave it in for 60 seconds, I have been doing just that but I have totally hung up my old conditioner and this is now my go-to conditioner (where this isn’t the traditional way to use it, it works for me!). It has strengthened and repaired my hair as promised and I am so grateful for my new locks! It also accentuates my blonde highlights without drying out my hair like a lot of purple shampoos/treatments too.
It retails for $24.95 and being the bargain hunter I am, I struggle with hair care products around this mark so I would definitely look for it to go on sale but I mean for the results it’s definitely something I am willing to splurge on. You can pick it up from your local Price Attack or Hairhouse Warehouse. I love this treatment and I most definitely recommend this product.
So there you have it guys, my review of Goldwell’s 60 second treatment. Please don’t be like me, please leave your protected bubble and go and try out some new products. If they are a miss they are a miss but if you find a gem like this one I can promise you its all worth the while. Now I have left the safe zone I will definitely be trying more products from the Goldwell’s range and if their products are anything like their Blonde’s and Highlights treatment I will not be looking back.
Until next time..
*Please note this product was gifted to me by the Trish Nicol Agency.
I like to think of myself as a bit of a “bad ass” when it comes to dying my hair. I am bold and willing to try a whole range of colours. So I just wanted to quickly share a few photos of different colours/styles I have had over the years and ask your opinion on what I should do next!
