Infuse My. Colour Wash

blog 2.jpg

Keeping your hair colour vibrant and your hair healthy is somewhat of a task, as it requires both time and dedication. Fortunately, we at The Amazing Blog were lucky in discovering the Infuse My. Colour Washes, designed to refresh and add strong tones to coloured hair.

If you’re wanting to brighten and revive your coloured hair easily and quickly (and relatively cheaply!), these shampoos are worth looking into. We know the feeling well when your coloured hair loses its vibrancy, or the colour starts to turn an off shade or tone. These shampoos are simply great for prolonging the wait time in between colour appointments.  They are gentle on the hair and smooth the hair cuticle to seal in colour, leaving your hair silky and bold. What’s even better is that they are 100% vegan and biodegradable, and free from sulphates, silicones and parabens.

The shampoos come in Ruby, Gold, Copper, Platinum and Cobalt, and the idea is that each shampoo will work as a toner depending on the colour you’d like to achieve, so that you can rock your coloured hair with confidence. Copper adds warm tones to strawberry blonde, copper, auburn and brown hair. Ruby highlights brightness in red hair, or can add a fun pink tone to bleached blonde hair. Platinum neutralises brassy and canary yellow tones in pale blonde and white hair, maintaining a cool grey undertone. Gold adds sunshine back into honey blonde hair and Cobalt maintains cool dark blonde and brown hair.

Luckily for you, these shampoos are very easy to use; just sud up your hair and and wash out for an immediate result. Purchase the Infuse My. Colour shampoos from Boots in store or online for £9.30 - usually the product is £13.95 but Boots is offering 1/3 off currently. 

Ylang Ylang, Argan & Rosemary Shampoo and Conditioner by AA Skincare from Amphora Aromatics

final final blog image.jpg

It is no secret that The Amazing Blog holds natural beauty products above all others. Amphora Aromatic's natural skincare range, AA Skincare, has come out with new plant inspired natural shampoos, which have obviously caught our eye. With six new shampoo and conditioner sets to chose from we decided to put their Ylang Ylang, Argan & Rosemary Conditioning shampoo and conditioner to the test. It's worth noting that the conditioner is vegan, however the shampoo contains honey so is only suitable for vegetarians.

The first thing to say is that this product smells utterly amazing. The delicate but fragrant notes of the Ylang Ylang are the first thing to wash over you and instantly made us feel like we were at the spa. Asides from it's delightful scent, the Ylang Ylang essential oil in the product helps to promote a healthy scalp by nourishing and repairing brittle hair. The cucumber extract soothes the scalp and leaves hair feeling silky and soft. Yet, it is the rosemary extract that is the hero ingredient as it actually encourages hair growth and adds volume. The reviving conditioner is the perfect way to finish your hair wash as it is filled with argan oil, promising to leave your hair looking shiny and healthy.

That's why the Ylang Ylang, Argan & Rosemary range is ideal for dry hair, as the ingredients are moisturising and nourishing. If your hair concerns are elsewhere, their Amla & Clary Sage range soothes scalp irritations, the Cedarwood & Peppermint is deep cleansing for oily hair, the Peony, Bay & Brahmi is nourishing and soothing, the Rose & Pomegranate range is 'ultra-gentle', and the Rosemary, Sage & Burdock repairs damaged hair.

The shampoo is available here and the conditioner here, both for £5.94 each.

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


SoapNSkin - Rose and Sandalwood Collection

Who said that high quality and luxury body care is synonym for unaffordable? Here at The Amazing Blog we can show you it’s quite the opposite with SoapNSkin products. 

SoapNSkin's range includes soaps, body wash, hand wash, body butters and shampoos, all created using all natural, organic ingredients including LavenderSandalwoodRose and Jojoba. Founded by best friends Rabia and Samar, every single product is created by hand in their very own kitchens. SoapNSkin want to spread the word that our skin and hair don’t need parabens or chemicals to look shiny and silky. We 100% agree, because we cannot stop using their creations since we’ve tried the Rose & Sandalwood line. 

We love how the Rejuvenate & Calm Anti-Dandruff Shampoo looks like liquid gold and left our hair feeling soft and cleansed. The Calming & Soothing Hand & Body Soap is a multi-purpose product that can be used on your face, hands and body. Its organic base, and chemical free components means that it delicately cleanses without leaving your skin tight and taut. We also think the rich Soothing Body Butter is a staple product to have this winter, with its rose, sandalwood and neem oils which smoothed the texture of our skin, as well as protecting it against environmental damage, and the harsh cold weather.

SoapNSkin's products can be purchased on their website; the Soothing Body Butter and Rejuvenate & Calm Anti-Dandruff Shampoo retails at £12, and the Soothing Hand & Body Soap for £3.50. Treat you as Mother Nature would do!
