Lots of shrapnel used ’til the last drop to harp on about, so I’ll bomb through the majority quick smart…

Starting with Lush’s H’suan Wen Hua hair mask….

This is litch my ‘holiest of all the grail’ hair masks at the moment… I’m not the biggest Lush fan, (the stores are too bright/loud/heavily scented… Yes, yes I’m eighty) but I picked this tub up upon Fleur DeForce’s recommendation. If your hair is like mine (vile? nightmarish? dry? damaged?) you will LAV this. Whack this on your frizzbombin’ mane overnight, and you’ll thank me upon rinsing. It doesn’t smell the most heavenly (the fragrance is very cinnamonesque  – not what you’d expect from a hair product), but it’s totes bearable. I’ve already repurchased this, and ’twill be a bathroom staple for the foreseeable future.

Another hair treatment that’s kaputt is Bleach’s Reincarnation Mask… I picked this up after seeing that litch 100% of it’s Boots reviewers gave it five stars.

I’ve used the purple shampoo from the Bleach range before and was super impressed, but to be honest the Reincarnation Mask didn’t quite live up to my expectations. Perhaps my hair is just particularly shite, but I’m quite surprised at the total awe from the Boots customers! As hair treatments go it’s lovely; it conditions and leaves the hair softer than before using but to be honest I was in no way blown away (maybe my sights were set a tad too high)…

Also, the packaging is crap – After one use the aluminium tube looked rancid, and I actually found it required serious strength to push out any product… Yes I’m very weak and yes it’s a first world problem, but you’d want serious biceps to wring out the treatment! At €8.49 in Boots (plus it’s pretty much always on a 3 for 2 deal) I possibly would repurchase in the future if the mood strikes, but overall it’s nothing too major, and in my opinion definitely not a quick fix miracle cure for damaged hair.

The last treatment hangin’ in the Empties Bin is the Schwarzkopf Bonacure Q10 Time Restore Treatment. It took me forever and a day to finish this 750ml bottle, which I picked this up in TK Maxx (Carrickmines). The TK Maxx price escapes me but online it’s retailing for around sixty euro…. (I definitely didn’t pay that – probz cost me around thirty bills, if not less).

First off, the packaging is hagsville… The treatment is extremely viscous, like literally as thick as honey, and so whacking it out of the bottle was a total wrecking my life situ. I was very ecstatic to finally finish it which I think says it all – no remorse/desire to repurchase etc. Conditioning wise, it did the job but as with the Bleach treatment above, I never noticed an insane improvement in my hair texture between pre and post usage.

On to shampoos – I finished up the Kebelo clarifying shampoo which I received in my July Look Fantastic Beauty Box… and I for one LOVED it!

I’m quite new to the whole ‘exfoliating shampoo’ buzz, and subsequently I didn’t have much to compare it to, but I really, really liked it. As in, I’ll definitely be reordering it. I was initially somewhat hasty about using it, as I imagined an exoliating shampoo to be quite harsh and stripping. But in reality it was the complete opposite, leaving my hair super soft (which is a total rarity!) and revived. ‘Mazing. FYI if you’ve any apple cider vinegar floating around via its Superfood Buzz circa 2013 it makes for an amazing hair clarifying treatment also (Check out this link for more deets!)…

In staying with the shampoo vibes, I (finally) finished up a ginormous bottle of Shu Uemura’s Cleansing Oil Shampoo. I loved the concept of an oil cleanser for my hair (after switching to oil cleansers on my face)…

BUT I wasn’t blown away by this. It’s graaand; definitely not worth the extortionate fifty euro plus price tag though…. Will not be repurchasing!

It’s on par with any sulfate-free shampoo available in Boots for a tenner. It doesn’t lather, which is grand for someone whose hair has very little products to rinse, but I pretty much always smother my tresses in a hair mask before washing it. Therefore I need a lil somethin’ somethin’ in the suds department to know that the treatment is being rinsed out, know-what-i’m-sayin’?!

Which leads me to dry shampoo… The Dove Dry Shampoo from their (relatively new) Refresh&Care range…

Now just to clarify – my hair rarely gets greasy, and therefore I can’t really review dry shampoos on their oil-absorbing abilities, BUT I use them frequently  to freshen up my hair – add volume, root lift, a light fragrance etc. This Dove one just didn’t do it for me – I despised the scent. Like literally DESPISED. Vom. It’s a super sweet, synthetic fragrance that lingers forevz. Can’t be dealing with that…. It reminded me of a  Barbie perfume I had circa 1993 (and not in a good way)…

  

I’ve recently also finished/binned loads of skincare and makeup products which I’ve been saving in an ‘Empties’ pile. Let me know if you’d like a similar post on ’em….
