Organic Head Brunette Conditioner by Daniel Galvin Jr

Daniel Galvin Jr’s range of hair care products are all made with a high proportion of organic ingredients and provide high quality hair care that is a pleasure to use and treats your hair well.  The Organic Head Brunette Shampoo and Conditioner are especially formulated with Daniel Galvin Jr’s exclusive brunette blend including sage to gradually darken brown hair, elderberry to add richness and lustre to darker locks and black tea to enhance chestnut tones.  I was looking forward to trying out the Brunette Conditioner on my long dark hair to see how it performed.

The conditioner comes in a generous 250ml size tube that is easy to dispense and perfect for standing on the side of the shower or bath. Made with 70% natural ingredients, I have to say when it is dispensed from the tube it does look really nourishing and wholesome.  With a creamy beige thick looking consistency I was eager to try it out on my hair.  After shampooing I applied the product and it’s thick creamy texture was pleasant and hydrating on my hair.  It felt very luxurious and nourishing really giving my hair the boost it needed.

The Daniel Galvin Jr Organic Head Brunette Shampoo and Conditioner is a really competent and quality product that I’d happily use after every wash.  It packed my hair full of hydration, left it super soft with added shine and richness.  I haven’t used it long enough to see how well the brunette enhancement performs but the Daniel Galvin Jr Oh! Conditioner itself has a rich feel to it and is definitely a product that suits my hair type and leaves it feeling luxuriously soft, smooth and well cared for!

Lee Stafford No Strings Attached Cordless Straightener

Lee Stafford No Strings Attached Cordless Straightener has revolutioned my hair routine in the mornings.  I love being cord free and moving around the room, looking in whatever mirror I please to do my hair.  The other big bonus is the stand to put these in, no more worrying about leaving hot irons on the floor or side where someone might knock them when they are hot or trip over the cord.

What do you get in the box?

Well I was very impressed with the contents.  Along with the straighteners was a heat mat and zip up bag for storage.

The cordless straighteners themselves are just lovely, a bold bright pink and easy to hold.  They have a stand which allows them to sit upright in and a cord which can either go directly into the straighteners as per normal ones, or into the base resulting in the straighteners being cordless when you use them.

So what are they like to use?

I love them!  They are now my go to straightener every morning that I wish to straighten my hair.  I love the way they stand upright in the holder.  They reach a good heat which should last up to 15 mins before needing to put them back in the holder to heat up again.  I find that plenty of time although sometimes I just pop them back in for a few minutes while I comb my hair and then just go over a few bits that need it.

The Lee Stafford No Strings Attached Cordless Straightener to use, I’d recommend them to anyone.  There’s no chance of them rolling about on the floor, you can walk around as you are using them rather than being tied to the corner of the bedroom and they give me the results that I want with my hair.  Plus the fact that they look good standing in the corner of my dressing table.  An all round winner for me!

Gold Collagen Forte® – Review

Turning 40 this month makes me feel old, and in turn I know that my skin is ageing quicker than I’d like.  I don’t want to feel old and am keen to try out anything to make me feel and look younger.  I’ve tried a month’s supply of Gold Collagen Forte®, a peach and lychee flavoured nutritional drink

goldThe drink is full of powerful anti-oxidants that fight against the signs of ageing and help the renewal of collagen, the main benefits being:

  • Helps protect against oxidative stress
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Promotes skin suppleness and firmness
  • Improves skin hydration and radiance
  • Promotes healthy hair and nails

gold 2So what did it taste like?

It’s flavoured of peach and lychee, but has a very rich taste although is only 2-3 mouthfuls so is easy to take each morning with breakfast.

Did I notice any difference?

Well I have been trying hard with diet, exercise, less wine, more water on the run up to my 40th but I can honestly say my face does feel softer and more plumped.  My nails are definitely less brittle, more flexible which means less breakages (especially with two young children around).  My hair does feel shiny and bouncy at the moment.  Obviously it’s hard to tell after just a month’s use but I do feel that Gold Collagen Forte® has made some difference which is great news.  Anything to feel more fabulous at 40 is more than welcome!

How much does it cost?

Well it isn’t cheap.  A box of 10 bottles which is a 10 day supply is £40.00, but this is a high quality supplement and if you want the results then I believe this will work.

Final thoughts

I do think it’s hard to quote how much a supplement has worked over a month but I can honestly say that everything feels softer, hair, nails and skin.  A more supple feeling and if that would improve with further use of the supplement then I can genuinely say that this works and is definitely something to give you both a more youthful look and feeling.  Certainly the best product I’ve tried but then I guess you get what you pay for and if this product is in your budget then I would try it as I believe in it and think that it gives results.
