Hair accessories - Friday favourites

Sometimes it’s good to have a complete overhaul of hair products to revamp tired routines and remind you of why you love styling your own hair. At The Amazing Blog we have a roundup of our favourite hair accessorises from the old-reliable paddle brush to the new straightening revolution.

The Invisibobble is your new best friend, when you’ve got to the office and the wind-swept look isn’t quite what you want to stick for the rest of the day, or you just want to get your hair out of the way on the sweaty commute then this hair band is for you. It’s made of rubber rather than elastic and can be used just like a normal hair band, however this little genius leaves behind no kink when taken out. It exists 3 different sizes according to you hair type and mood. As the band is less straining on the scalp it’s been said it can reduce headaches caused by strained skin and is kinder on your hair. Unlike the conventional hair band this mini wonder doesn’t pull on hair, allowing hair to grow thick and full, need any more reason the buy?

You can get your Invisibobble, in the size you'd prefer here starting from £3.95.

We know all too well bed hair can be too much hassle in the morning, our solution? Silky Hair days cap from Gold class, the black silky cap can be used to keep hair (natural hair and extension hair) from matting and will also help eliminate any frizz from hair. Made from Mulberry silk, we love the design of the black silk can lace- the cap even adds a shine to hair, meaning waking up, your hair is ready to style.

Wake up with immaculate hair everyday and purchase the overnight miracle here for £30.00.

If you’re looking for new hair brushes then Denman is the go-to, they have a wide range of sizes and styles to suit all hair types. The colourful range includes their signature tangle tamer paddle brush, aimed to ease the process of brushing hair; we tried the purple Tangle tamer ultra. The super- soft nylon bristles gently glide through the hair, removing the tangles and ready to style. We also tired the large Thermo-neon curling brush, this large barrel is perfect for blow-drying, to create big bouncy curls to last all day.

The whole Denman range can be found here including the Tangle tamer ultra  at £12.50 and the thermos-neon curling brush at £15.00.


Finally, we looked at the latest styling revelution; the heated straightening brush from Babyliss. The idea of straightening and brushing hair seems slightly too good to be true, however Babyliss have created the ultimate tool and we love it! The brush features a unique bristle combination with heated ceramic straightening fins, which work to smooth strands from the root to the tip leaving hair shiny and straight for the day. The simple design resembles a paddle brush meaning it’s easy to use and a convenient size for traveling.

Change your hair routine by using the Diamond heated styling brush by Babyliss available here for £80.00.

Friday Favourites - Hair Products

We here at The Amazing Blog love trying out new hair cuts, colours, and styles. However, all that styling can take a toll on our hair’s health. We have here some of our favourite products which protect and strengthen locks so your hair is always ready to try out the latest trend!


Healthy hair starts from the scalp. Yarok Feed Your Youth Hair and Scalp Serum is a great way to keep your hair beautiful and strong. This serum has a powerful combination of essential oils, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to promote hair health from scalp to roots. We found that a little goes a long way, so just three drops of product worked into my scalp was the perfect amount. Leave in for about 10 minutes before shampooing and conditioning.  At The Amazing Blog we love green companies, so we are proud that three percent of Yarok’s annual profits are donated to the Pachamama Alliance to help protect over 10 million acres of rainforests. You can purchase Yarok Feed Your Youth Hair and Scalp Serum here for $22

ruby redRuby Red’s Hair Oil Treatment is another perfect solution for damaged hair. Olive, Sweet Almond, Jojoba, and Coconut oils help replenish nutrients and vitamins to dry, dull hair. If frizziness is an issue for you, we found this oil calmed mine down whilst also helping my split ends. Apply it from the roots through to the ends of your hair and leave it for around 30 minutes so it can work thoroughly through the hair. The oil felt amazing in my hands as it’s so soft and glides easily, I was almost tempted to use it as a body oil also!  Something that makes this oil quite special is that Ruby Red carefully hand-blends their products for maximum therapeutic benefit to maximise your pampering experience. The oil is £25.00 for 100ml and can be found here. It’s a really lovely product and is ideal for showing your hair some love.

wowLove how your hair looks after it is coloured, but hate having to deal with roots or regrowth? Never worry about hair colour that doesn’t match again with Root Cover Up by WOW! This unique powder compound covers up grey roots and regrowth without making hair appear dull. The formula is water-resistant, so the powder will hold even while you swim or sweat, but easily washes out with shampoo. The powder has a variety of colour pigments and reflective particles to help blend in with different hair colours. WOW Root Cover Up is available in Platinum, Blonde, Light Brown, Medium Brown, Dark Brown, and Black. We tried the Medium Brown  shade and found it blended nicely with hair colour without feeling too heavy or dry. Simply apply the powder to dry and styled hair, starting at the scalp and working your way outward. After applying to your scalp, use on your temples or any other patches of grey hair. I love how bright and vibrant my hair colour looked after applying just a little powder! You can buy Root Cover Up by WOW for £28.50 here.

airEven more frustrating than knotty hair is a hairbrush that pulls and rips at your strands. Air Motion is a revolutionary hair brush that gently detangles and smoothes hair. Air Motion has three bristle lengths that help hair strands glide through the brush instead of getting tangled in the bristles. The head of the brush uses AirShock absorption technology to provide an air cushioned, sensitive hair brushing experience. We loved using this brush, because it felt like a head massage as the bristles ran through our hair. Invented and designed in the UK, this hair brush detangles knots and reduces frizz while treating your scalp to a relaxing experience. Air Motion is available here for £11.95.

curlWe love the look of soft curls, but we never have enough patience or time to curl my hair. That all changed with the Curl Secret by BaByliss which is quick and easy to use - I have shoulder length hair and can curl my whole head in about 10 minutes. The Curl Secret is unlike any other curler, because you do not have to wrap individual pieces around a rod. Instead, the Curl Secret draws sections of hair into a ceramic curl chamber where it is gently heated to create a curl. Release the clamp and voila, a perfect curl! We were pleasantly surprised to see that curls lasted throughout the day. You can experiment with two heat settings and three timer settings to change up your look. Check out the video below to see a demonstration of how it works. You can purchase the BaByliss Curl Secret here for £119.99.
