blog temp.jpg

Raise your hand up if you have an itchy scalp, product build up, dehydrated or thinning hair. For these reasons, we at The Amazing Blog have given both these two hair treatments from Sea Magik a try, and we can happily say that you’re in for a lovely surprise.

The Sea Magik is a new discovery brand for us. It’s a family enterprise and is one of four award-winning brands under their umbrella company Finders Brands It also has a very unique story to the products. As it all started when the founder Kate Bunyan’s grandmother who took her father, Robert Czik, to visit the therapeutic natural salt lakes and caves in Hungary. These trips are what inspired Robert to create a professional spa brand. Nothing came easy as salty water has a unique chemistry which he eventually tapped into and creating the world’s first line of mineral-infused spa skincare.

Let’s talk about their Pink Salt Shampoo which is blended with three organic seaweed extracts and composed of Himalayan salt granules with lime, rosemary and cypress essential oils. This treatment shampoo exfoliates the scalp and remove product build-up. It is easy to use and just requires you to massage the salt shampoo into wet hair and scalp as a weekly treatment. Take your time to lather the product as you inhale the spa essential oils. Rinse and follow with your regular conditioner. The shampoo is SLS/SLES free, and even though the shampoo is granulated in texture, it is not at all abrasive and smells refreshingly of lime and left our hair squeaky clean pre conditioner.

Next is the 3-Seaweed Scalp Mud which is made up of three organic seaweeds, dead-sea mud and pure coconut oil. The mud is creamy and with a moreish coconut scent. It can be used as a daily basis as a conditioning treatment to soothe the scalp, (especially an itchy scalp) and the coconut oil helps to hydrate the hair. Replace your regular conditioner with the scalp mud and apply after shampooing and let sit for 1-5 minutes. Rinse with fresh warm water. It really did leave our scalps feeling deeply nourished and hair silky soft. A big thumbs up on this from us.

Both products are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and free from harsh ingredients and silicones. Best of all they are kind to all skin and hair types. There are no sulphates, synthetic fragrances, parabens, petrochemicals, PEG’s, GMO’s gluten and dairy. The plastic tubes are made from sugarcane and is recyclable. So what’s not to like? Purchase Pink Salt Shampoo here 200ml for £11.99 and 3-Seaweed Scalp Mud here 150ml for £11.95. Get on board with healthy scalp and hair with these two products and begin your journey to beautiful hair.

 

 

 

MODE Wonder Dust By Affinage

NEW blog template_edited-2.jpg

We at The Amazing Blog love the bed-head look, but it is all about finding the right balance between 'effortlessly tousled' and 'dragged through a bush'. Luckily, with the MODE Wonder Dust: Mega Volume Powder by Affinage you get perfectly volumised and lifted hair.

This Mega Volume Powder is perfect for zhuzh-ing the hair in between washes whilst absorbing excess oils, for a seemingly fresh do. Or if you usually suffer from lifeless and lank hair, the Wonder Dust gives incredible root lift and texture. You have been warned though, the tiniest of sprinklings adds a tonne of volume! It’s called the Mega Volume Powder for a reason.

It is also incredibly quick and easy to use. Just shake a small sprinkling into roots of dry hair and roughly massage in. You’ll be left with gloriously messy but sexy hair that any Victoria’s Secret Model would be envious of. We love the lasting power of this Wonder Dust, as the texture and volume doesn’t fall flat during the day. It will take you right through the day or evening.

Noir Caviar Range By Revolution Hair Concepts

Anti-ageing isn't just a skin concern, unfortunately. Hair and skin have very similar properties, and so hair can be tackled with an anti-ageing regime in just the same way as skin. We here at The Amazing Blog were therefore incredibly excited when we came across Revolution Hair Concept’s Noir Caviar range, as it is a 'Professional Collection' that delivers anti-ageing properties to your hair.

The Noir Caviar range was inspired by advancements in skincare, and will restore the hair’s youthful appearance thanks to their C3 Trifecta; caviar, collagen and ceramides. These ingredients are rejuvenating and replenishing. The Luxuriant Black Caviar from the Caspian Sea contains proteins, lipids and essential fatty acids, helping to restructure the hydro-lipid layer of the hair. This, in turn, helps to reduce moisture loss. Caviar is also high in mineral content and antioxidant vitamins, fortifying the hair fibres and increasing environmental protection. Collagen is a protein that is found naturally in the body, and is vital for hair growth, keeping hair resilient and full, while strengthening the scalp. Ceramides are also found naturally in the body, binding the hair to the scalp. Adding ceramides into your hair regime will help hair recover from chemical damage and protect hair against chemicals, heat and UVA.

Combining their shampoo (Anti-Age Restorative Cleanser), their conditioner (Anti-Age Restorative Moisturiser) and the Anti-Age Restorative Styling Crème will give you the locks of your dreams; stronger, smoother, shinier. The Cleanser will clean hair without stripping it of moisture and vital nutrients or fading hair colour. The Moisturiser renews softness and shine whilst hydrating and delivering the protective ingredients. To further smooth out frizz for polished hair, apply the leave-in Crème to damp or dry hair.

Purchase the Cleanser here for £13.50, the Moisturiser here for £13.50 , and the Crème here for £25.

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.

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.
