More Best Tips For Achieving At-Home Salon Treatments (Like A Pro)

Hey, Lovelies!

Continuing on from my previous article, ‘How To Achieve At-Home Beauty Salon Results,’ here are the next unmissable tips. Follow this guide, and your beauty goals will be acquired with ease, you will save yourself a fortune and feel like a total pro!

1. Exfoliating Body Scrub Try: Moroccan Rose Otto Sugar Body Polish, £36, www.renskincare.com

Ren Skincare

We’ve looked at microdermabrasion for the face. Now it’s time to address the body. If (like me) you can’t get enough of roses, this is a must-have body scrub for you! Vegan-friendly, the gorgeous polish includes sugar particles, Moroccan Rose Otto oil and Paraguay tea extract.

In a recent post, I mentioned just how invaluable a roller can be, particularly for reducing inflammation and stimulating blood flow. Pop this in the fridge until you need it, then apply and allow it to work its undeniable powers on your complexion. Since discovering the roller, it remains one of my most cherished beauty tools.

3. Pro Spa Treatment No.3: Eyebrow Tint, £12.99, www.lookfantastic.com

Okay, so you may be a tad scared of going for the at-home eyebrow tint. You needn’t be. Products today make this job so fast and simple – even I can do it without hashing it up.

The best product I have used is Maybelline’s Tattoo Brow Long Lasting Tint, £12.99. This lasts for about 3 days – so it’s great if you are planning a little getaway. However, if you really don’t feel ready to take the plunge, you could buy an eyebrow tinting pen. They work quite well but don’t seem to last as long. Also, they aren’t too difficult to reverse any mistakes made. As for full-on microblading – I would skip the YouTube tutorials and wait until you can get in at the beauty salon.

4.Salon Tip No.4: Eyebrow Shaping: Tweezerman Neon Pink Stainless Steel Mini Slant Tweezers, £13, www.amazon.co.uk

There are so many people out there (including moi) with missing sections of eyebrow where the brow was once overplucked and has downright refused to grow back. Quick question: why the HELL does this only happen in areas you don’t want it to? Everywhere else, it comes back with a new targeted vengeance and you need to add a laser to your arsenal to stand a chance in defeating the dreaded evil hair nemesis.

The trick is, using your index finger, place it either side of your nose vertically, then mark lightly where your eyebrow should begin. Next, make a pencil mark on the centre and outer arch to ensure you are keeping to the matching plan. Never pluck above the eyebrow. Using a hot flannel, soften the lid area you wish to pluck. Then take your Tweezerman and in good lighting, you may begin. Go slowly, alternating eyebrows so you don’t end up with two that appear different. Make sure you get any tapering ends, too. Once you have achieved the eyebrow shape you desire, get an ice cube and rub over the lids gently to soothe. If you have aloe vera gel, apply this too.

5. Best Salon Tip No.5: Overnight Hair Conditioning Mask: Kerastase Nutritive 8H Magic Night Serum, £30.60 (90ml) Was £36, www.lookfantastic.com

It’s no secret just how awesome I think Kerastase is at offering hair transformative benefits. So, it will be no surprise I am recommending their 8H Magic Night Serum

Apply this at night before you sleep and within a few days you will be looking on at your reflection in slack-jawed amazement.

The Best At-Home Keratin Treatments To Achieve Serious Shine

Hey, Lovelies!

#The Best At-Home Keratin Treatments:

You don’t need to miss out on super-soft and shiny hair during the lockdown. Should you yearn for a mirror-like glossy shine (HELL, YEA), read on. These are the best at-home keratin treatments. Now you can enjoy hair that resembles lustrous locks that glisten in the sunshine! #HappyHairDays!

Although there are some awesome keratin-hair products that work really well, there’s nothing like a proper keratin treatment. Alas, the salons are closed and so our hopes were dashed…until now.

There’s no denying it – in-salon results will see your hair looking shiny for a good few weeks. The DIY outcome provides more of a coating, but as for staying power – they can win in a Pepsi challenge any day of the week. Basically, you are saving a packet by doing it at home. Check out some home keratin formulas that really make a difference.

Superdrug

Behold Easilocks SOS Keratin Rescue Treatment, by Shane O’ Sullivan.  The first-ever 12-week keratin blow-dry treatment. Priced at a mere fraction of the professional salon treatment, this at-home solution will set you back just £29.99. Yea, but surely, it is impossible to find. Nope, you can order online at Superdrug. Better yet, it’s not as difficult to get as hand sanitizer!

So, a totally affordable at-home treatment that can be achieved in the time it takes to drink a cuppa, and that will last for up to 12 weeks. Where’s the catch?

Included is a pair of gloves and sponge along with a pre-mixed solution. How can I mess that up? Well, yes, it’s me – so it is entirely possible. But, thankfully, all ran smoothly, and yippee – so did my hair! Love this!

Okay, strictly speaking, this is not a keratin treatment, but it is my most favourite hair-shiners of them all. The outstanding formula acts like it’s got superhero powers. Think of it as an invisible veil of dreamy wonder. Thwarting frizz, protecting against humidity, and maintaining that super-soft shine, the Dreamcoat Spray ticks every box. N.B: You need to activate its’s hero potential through heat and tension (so hairdryer and hairbrush in hand).

Have you tried any of these and what are your thoughts? Have an awesome day. xx

Wave Goodbye To Frizz And Hello To Gloss With Color Wow’s Dream Coat Supernatural Spray:

Hey Lovelies!

Should you want to wave goodbye to frizz for good (er, who the hell doesn’t?) and replace it with gloss as your new bezzie mate, you need to check out this review of Color Wow’s Dream Coat Supernatural Spray.

My obsession with hair products and tools means one thing – BAD hair.  Relentlessly dyed too, my locks now just protest as a matter of course. The annoying tendency to just frizz out the moment I step out of the house is a given.

I have found a few products to work – but alas, nothing beats the test of time (like a full day). What I constantly yearn for, is glossy, shiny hair. A weightless hair care product that can thwart frizz (the bane of my life), take control of moisture levels, whilst smoothing each fibre like a pro.

Just as I resigned myself to that pitiful point of defeat, I discovered Color Wow. After reading what it proclaims to achieve, I was slightly dubious as to any hair product being THAT good. However, there remained a ray of hope in the fact that it is an award-winning formula. This is what I found:

Color Wow’s Dream Coat is great for everyone but particularly helpful for those who suffer from the hell that is frizz. Additionally, should you be trying and failing to achieve the ‘glass hair’ look, this is a must-have. Taking inspiration from innovative textile technology, it veils hair strands with an invisible waterproof coat (superheroes would be impressed).

Features:

Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray - say goodbye to frizz and hello to gorgeousness

1. Hair is incredibly glossy, sleek and smooth.

2. Lasts for 3-4 shampoos or 72 hours.

3. Invisible and weightless formula that protects against humidity and kills frizz.

4. Heat-activated polymer tightens and seals strands.

Outcome:

Color WOw Dream COat Supernatural Spray bye to frizz hello to gorgeous
Credit: Amazon

The secret to this serum working is in the application. Activated by heat, it is vital you saturate your hair with the product all the way from root to tip. Once you have done this, take your dryer and brush and get to work. Using a little tension and heat, my hair that would only look right on a scarecrow (and not a new one either) is literally transformed into advert-worthy (think L’Oréal) locks. Seriously people, when it comes to awesome hair products, the Dream Coat Spray will go down as one of the greats.

Dr Joe Cincotta, PhD and Chief Chemist, Color Wow says:

Color Wow dream coat spray anti-humidity
Credit: Color Wow

“The key to fighting frizz is all about controlling moisture levels and locking the cuticle down as tight and smooth as possible. Unlike typical serum or oil-based humidity-fighting formulas that lay down a heavy coat on hair’s surface, (which deflate volume and leave the hair greasy) Dream Coat uses a groundbreaking, heat-activated polymer technology that is lighter than a feather. Dream Coat scatters teeny droplets randomly on hair’s surface. When heated with your blow-dryer these droplets connect and crosslink, forming an invisible, hydrophobic matrix that does two things:

1) Compresses each strand into a sleek, silky, supple shape
2) Sheathes every strand in a light, imperceptible “raincoat” that repels moisture.”

Directions for Use:

Shampoo, condition, towel dry hair, divide into sections. 

Saturate evenly on damp hair. Color Wow states not to apply other styling products to damp hair.

Blow-dry each section using a brush to hold hair taut allowing for friction.

For optimal results apply every 3-4 shampoos.

ColorWow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray is priced at £25 (200ml), available at Amazon.co.uk

Bursting with a rainbow of beautifying and nurturing essential and natural ingredients, this facial oil literally transforms the skin. I look on mine as something truly magical, to be cherished until the end of time. Furthermore, it is fit for royalty, as apparently it is also a firm favourite in Kate Middleton’s skincare arsenal!
