Goldwell Dualsenses Color Shampoo and Conditioner

Maintaining my shiny new fuchsia hair has allowed me to put some haircare products to the test. There are so many colour-maitanence hair products on the market but when you are talking about a colour as bold as mine you need something that pulls out all stops. Goldwell’s Dualsenses Color range boasts the ability to do just that, but does it live up to the promises?

I chose the Fade Stop Shampoo and Detangling Conditioner for this review as it’s marked for fine to normal hair. The Dualsenses Color range does come in an Extra Rich version for those requiring extra care. My review tells you how well this duo performed to maintain my colour as well as the condition and quality of my hair.  Continue Reading

Hair mousse has always been the hair product I feared most. I am not exactly talented when it comes to doing my hair, and I find even the most simple hair tricks beyond my capabilities. In my eyes, using hair mousse required skills. Skills that I just didn’t have.

A couple of weeks ago I got frustrated with the amount of hair mousse I had accumulated, and at the current rate, would never use. I wanted to know what the ‘trick’ was. As it turns out, there is no real trick. I was just simply applying it to the wrong section of hair.

I always thought mousse gives hair body, so it must Continue Reading

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
