Empties #06 Hair Care Edition

In the weeks leading up to my holiday, I really made a conscious effort to use up the little bits of products that I had left, particularly hair products.  These are my current empties and I cannot wait to chuck the empty packages out!


Herbal Essences Breakage Defender Intensive Mask

This hair mask has seriously saved my hair this summer.  I cannot rave about it enough, I’ve already bought another which screams volumes in my book, especially as I’m always testing out different products.  I’ve written a full review here.

Aussie Colour Mate Shampoo and Conditioner

I’m a big fan of Aussie hair products, they’re fantastic quality particularly for the price.  I’ve enjoyed using this shampoo and conditioner, it’s kept my hair clean and nourished and I love the peach scent that they both have.  I haven’t noticed any prolonged life of my high and low lights though but I didn’t really expect that from the shampoo and conditioner, it’s more about keeping your hair clean so that your colour shines through.  I’m pleased I tried these although I probably wouldn’t repurchase them unless my favourite Aussie shampoo and conditioner, Aussome Volume, weren’t on the shelf.

TIGI Bed Head Ego Boost
Ego Boost is a split end mender and leave in conditioner.  It’s one of those products that I can take or leave.  It doesn’t work miracles, it doesn’t float my boat and in all honesty, I very much doubt I’d ever repurchase it as there’s much better products out there.  For split ends, I recommend a good hair cut and as a leave in conditioner, I much prefer the Wen Cucumber Aloe Cleansing Conditioner which leaves my hair soft, manageable and not greasy in the slightest. 

Revlon Colour Professional Nutri Colour Creme 1002
If you’ve got blonde hair and you’re wanting a conditioner with a toner in it to give you more of an ash blonde look then I’d highly recommend these colour balls.  I got mine from the salon supply shop when I had more ash blonde toned hair but I’m sure they’re available to buy in salons and online.  It’s a purple toned conditioner that you pop on your hair after shampooing for a few minutes and then wash out.  It works a bit like the silver shampoo you can buy and does a great job at lightening your hair and giving it a light ash tone.  It’s great for brightening up dull, dark, yellow blonde hair.  This isn’t a product I would repurchase at the moment as I’ve had some dark blonde/light blonde low lights put through my hair these last few months but if I go back to having more ash blonde hair then I’d definitely buy this.

Volume Inter Actives Hair Care, Volume Express from Revlon Colour Professional
This is another product I’ve purchased from the salon supply shop.  Volume Express from Revlon Colour Professional is a leave in volumiser for fine hair.  It contains arginin, wheat proteins, ginseng and cationic bio-polymers to strengthen the hair and give it more natural body and volume and it really does work.  I spritz this through my hair after I’ve towel dried it, then I blow dry it with a round brush and it creates a salon looking blow dry with lots of volume every time.  This stuff is brilliant and I’ll definitely be repurchasing!
