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.

To The Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner - Noughty

Here at The Amazing Blog, we understand the struggle to attain frizz free hair. We have time and time again spent our hard earned money on some hair alchemy that gurentees to free our locks from their frizz induced prison, only to be left diappointed. Yet, we haven't given up this quest, for which we are glad as we have just come across Noughtya company dedicated to creating an all natural range of hair care products that help to reduce friss and tame the untameable. 

We tried Noughty’s To The Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner, and it was as if a prince on a white horse rode straight into the house. Made from 97% natural ingredients, the products are free from petrochemicals, parabens, sulphates and silicones. This is a seriously good shampoo and conditioner from a company that doesn’t take itself too seriously. We love the light hearted and jokey vibe that the brand has; in fact when discussing how all the products they make are cruelty-free, they write “we don’t believe in testing our ingredients on Bambi, Lassie or Skippy.” Meaning that not only will your hair be left looking smooth and beautiful but you will be left feeling guilt free.

Because of the blend of natural ingredients, including sweet almond oil, coconut oil, olive oil, Shea butter and blue mallow flower, our hair was left feeling and looking shinier, healthier and smoother. Our split ends were reduced, and hair felt calmer and more under control. What's more the products are bursting with a sublime fruit and coconut scent, that is as refreshing as it is fragrant. 

You can purchase Noughty’s To The Rescue Shampoo here for £6.99 and their Conditioner here for £6.99


Mashooq Deep Penetrating Oil Treatment

I've never been too fussy about my haircare routine, I would use any shampoo and conditioner that did the job and left my hair shiny. However, my hair has grown quite a lot in the past few months and the ends have been feeling (and looking...) very dry - my hair's overall appearance was very dull and boring. I've tried intensive repair masks which have left my hair glossy and nourished just after washing it and feeling even drier and heavy the next day. At The Amazing Blog we came across the skin and hair brand Mashooq and decided to give their Deep Penetrating Oil Treatment a try - I've come to the conclusion that you don't know what a deeply nourished and silky hair is until you apply a quality hair oil to it. Mashooq products are the result of an exquisite blend of natural oils including coconut, olive, palm, whet germ, almond and sunflower which are full of vitamins and minerals to nourish and protect the hair and skin. Mashooq Deep Penetrating Oil Treatment can be used on two different ways: it can be used as a soak for 10 to 20 minutes before shampooing to strengthen the hair and adding a gorgeous shine - just wrap the oiled hair in a hot towel or cover it with a shower cap while soaking in the bath. You can also apply the Penetrating Oil Treatment before harsh treatments such as bleaching, colouring, perming or relaxing to protect the hair from damage. My favourite my way to use this oil is applying it before going to bed, leaving it in the whole night and shampooing as you would the next morning.

We also had the chance to try their Moisturising Hair Serum, that applied to dry hair gets rid of the frizziness and adds nice sheen. The packaging of the Mashooq products is convenieny, ideal for travelling and easy to store too.

You can purchase Mashooq Penetrating Oil Treatment in different sizes (100 ml, 250 ml and 500ml) for £7.99, £13.99 and £21.00 from their website and from Amazon.
