Here at the Amazing Blog, we love products that take care of our hair, and as such we are always on the look out for new products that will leave our locks looking more luscious, shiny and healthy. So when OGX was introduced to us, and after hearing impressive stories, we were unsurprisingly so excited to try some of their products.  

We tried the new O2 collection from OGX that has a unique formula of Oxygen, Liposomes, and Cloudberries that breathes life back into lifeless locks. The special ingredients in the new collection (including vitamin A, B, C and E, Calcium, and Magnesium) help nourish your hair and keep it in a healthy condition. The new collection includes an O2 Shampoo, O2 conditioner, and a Lifting Tonic. If you want to find a new haircare regime these products are suitable for fine hair especially as it will help moisturize, hydrate and volumize your hair.

For those of you who want weightless, bouncy, volumised hair the O2 shampoo and conditioner should become a staple! The lifting tonic creates an added boost, which is perfect for those of you who have fine hair which tends to drop throughout the day. A  light oil, the lifting tonic, is easy to use; simply spray, from about 6-8 inches away, on to dry or damp hair. We cannot wait to try more of OGX's diverse hair care range in the future as this is a brand that does not disappoint.

You can purchase the shampoo at a selection of stores around the UK including Boots, who charge £6.99 for the Shampoo, £6.99 for the Conditioner and £7.35 for the Lifting Tonic.

Hair Care - Friday Favourites

At The Amazing Blog, we love switching up our hair care products. We know that after using the same shampoo and conditioner for a while, our hair just doesn’t reap the same benefits anymore. So to keep our hair soft and shiny, we’ve been testing out a few new products with some exotic new ingredients.

 

We all know that harsh winters dry out our skin, but it’s also important to remember that it’s also drying on our hair! The new OGX Argan Oil of Morrocco Extra Strength collection is the perfect way to revive and renew your weather-worn locks. We’re all very familiar with this beloved brand, so we were especially excited to receive the Argan Oil of Morocco Extra Strength Shampoo, Conditioner, and Miracle In-Shower Oil.

This ultra-hydrating shampoo and conditioner duo contain a potent blend of extra-strength argan oil and silk proteins to nourish your damaged hair. The sulfate-free products also form a rich lather that stimulates and rejuvenates your scalp while cleansing. You should get ready for compliments because they also have an amazingly soft and sweet scent that really lingers after we get out of the shower. The Miracle In-Shower Oil is an amazing, multi-purpose in-shower oil for head-to-toe hydration. You can add a few drops to boost your shampoo or conditioner, moisturise your skin, or smooth onto damp clean hair to prevent damage. It also has the same luxurious, soft smell as the rest of the collection.

We love OGX products because they’re effective and also easy on your purse! Each product is available for £7.99 from your local Boots.

Friday Favourites - Hair Care

Today, there is such a wide range of Branded Hair Care Products that it can become confusing as to which are the best. Here at The Amazing Blog we want to narrow it down for you; we know the importance of great hair care and have tried our share of different brands. We love products that are pleasing on the eye and nose, but ultimately we are most concerned about effective results. We hope you love our choices as much as we did.

I think most would agree that the toughest forecast for hair is humidity. OGX have created a Kukui Oil Haircare range, hallelujah. They promise to hydrate and waterproof hair to leave curls beautifully defined with luminous shine and most importantly, frizz free. The Kukui Oil, an ancient Hawaiian secret, is of course the star of the show. It is a totally natural ingredient found in the nuts of the Kukui tree, or ‘the tree of light’, well it certainly brightens up our day. The oil contains essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants, all of which help our hair to repel humidity whilst sealing in the moisture. These are the kind of results we have all been waiting for, and to think all of this is achievable through a hair wash. The Kukui Oil Shampoo and Conditioner are perfectly paired with an anti-frizz hydrating oil, with these in your haircare collection say goodbye to frizz for good. Get your hands on them here for £6.99 each.

If you are looking for a natural remedy to dry, lifeless or even oily hair then NOAH is the brand for you. The ingredients used in each product contain concentrations of pure essential oils; these are extracted from plants and flowers in the most traditional way possible. Finally, we can be certain that we are avoiding harmful chemicals that are found in most shampoos and conditioners. NOAH products are tailored to each problem area; our favourites are the Regenerating Shampoo with Argan Oil and Nourishing Conditioner with Mango and Rice Proteins. The regenerating shampoo is designed to relieve dry, overworked and treated hair, while the nourishing conditioner detangles and moisturises every hair type. Our hair can not only breathe a sigh of relief, but also smells incredible due to the plant and flower extracts. A must have in our opinion, if you think so too get them here for £9.90 and £13.50.

On those days in which our hair needs some extra TLC, we reach for the new Label M Honey and Oat Mask to both hydrate and strengthen our hair in one. Label M is an award-winning professional haircare brand that even caters for London Fashion Week. The Honey and Oat Treatment has an exclusive Hydra-5 moisture-regulating complex means it prevents damage, moisturises and strengthens. Key ingredients within the mask include two types of high-grade honey, Plum Kernal, African Myrrh, and Baobab Oil to give intense moisture and truly long lasting results. It is to be used around once a week in addition to conditioner, leave it in towel dried hair for 1-5 minutes and rinse with cool water. Whether in need of a pampering session or quick fix in the shower this mask is perfect for you. It feels light but luxurious and indulgent, while the use of honey leaves your hair with a divine scent. If you want silky smooth hair that smells so good you could eat it, order yours here for only £15.75

Now that we have kept our hair healthy, we want a great styling product to show it off, this is where Affinage comes in. Affinage is a professional hair care brand with unique, technology-driven products guaranteed to give effective results; our favourite styling product is without a doubt their award-winning Air Loader Ultra strong Hairspray. Not only is the packaging exciting and edgy, but it’s designed with a micro-atomizer to give a super fine spray with incredible hold and volume. Like any other hairspray, hold the Air Loader at arm’s length and apply on dry hair as needed, however unlike any other hairspray your hair will keep its shine and hold throughout the whole day. If you want extra volume you can reapply the spray as much as you want, the quick-dry, lightweight formula doesn’t weigh hair down. Remarkably, at the end of the day it brushes out easily and the product doesn’t feel as if it has drenched your hair in product. If you want to stay on the cutting edge of hair styling, pick yours up here for only £5.40.
