Kansha Alchemy - Good Hair Nutrient Complex

Final Blog Picture copy.jpg

Here at The Amazing Blog, we are always looking for products that can really help make every day, a good hair day. So we were super excited to receive the Kansha Alchemy Good Hair Nutrient Complex. We were sent a 1 month supply of this special vitamin complex that helps to encourage the growth of thick, healthy hair. Kansha Alchemy was founded by Carol Harrison and Ann-Louise Holland. Ann-Louise noticed that her hair was thinning and Carol lost her hair due to treatment for breast cancer. These women spent a significant amount of time researching and working with trichologists and hair growth experts in order to create a product that promotes healthy hair, while also working to prevent thinning and shedding. We're inspired by their stories and are excited to see what comes next from Kansha Alchemy

The Good Hair Pills contain a unique blend of over 20 carefully selected essential vitamins, minerals and herbs such as selenium, silica, zinc and keratin building amino acids. These ingredients help to keep hair in the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle, meaning that there is far less hair shedding. The pills also contain DHT blockers that work to decrease your sensitivity to DHT (a key cause of balding). As we took the pills, they were easy on the stomach and didn't leave us feeling sickly like some hair supplements can.

With the 1 month supply at £32.99 we took 2 pills every day. However, we would recommend taking a 3 month supply at £88.99, so that you can really see the full benefits. Due to their popularity, the product is currently (10.04.2018) out of stock. However, Kansha Alchemy is working to bring it back in stock as soon as possible. For now, you can add your email to the wait list to get more information about when the product is back in stock. 



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.

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.

LaCoupe Orgnx Coconut and Macadamia Oil Collection

blog image The weather can wreck havoc on our hair, in the Summer UV rays damage the melanin in our hair; and in the Winter, the changes between the cold, dry outside air and the warmth inside our homes and offices lifts the cuticle of our hair and the moisture is leached from it, leaving us with frizzy and unruly locks! When we girls at The Amazing Blog heard about the LaCoupe Orgnx Coconut and Macadamia Oil Collection we just had to get our hands on it!

The Coconut and Macadamia Oil Collection is a specially designed hair care range that protects the hair from the environment that can damage the hair. As Autumn is well and truly underway now we thought this would be a perfect time to test out the shampoo and conditioner.

The smell of the products is wonderful thanks to the coconut and macadamia oil, and I found that it lingered in my throughout the day. These oils are two of our favourite due to their luxurious moisturising qualities. After using the shampoo and conditioner on my dry and unruly hair, I found that it really did work to hydrate my locks, and left my hair not only smelling delightful, but also looking shinier and healthier than it has in ages. Both the shampoo and conditioner are lightweight formulas that can transform dry, frizzy and damaged hair into shiny healthy hair that is stronger and softer – and smells like a summer holiday even in the depths of winter!

If you want to get your hands on this moisturising hair collection, check out the LaCoupe website or you can purchase the Shampoo and conditioner, both £10.95 each for 300ml instore at Harvey Nichols or from the Nutri Beauty Products website.

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.
