With wet weather and lockdowns, it’s definitely about taking care of yourselves, family, friends and colleagues. Today’s blog is packed with great haircare tips and fantastic offers from Elemis and the M.Asam Ahuhu launch for the ultimate selfcare treat.
I appreciate it’s tough and some are in better positions than others. My consultancy business has made me so aware of brand redundancy and staff changes in the beauty industry, and many other industries, at the moment.
Remember, practicing selfcare is important and personal. Whether you buy new or use products from the bottom of your makeup bag or beauty stash cupboard, your technique and ingredient choices can be customised to suit your skins needs. I have so many free tutorials and FAQ over on my website so do check them out. My top tip when practicing selfcare is to be present in your beauty and grooming routines. Breathe consciously and think about the textures, aromas and results of your routine.
M.ASAM AHUHU BIG DEAL
One topic I often address in your FAQ’s is scalp problems and thinning hair for both men and women, so I was excited to try this new Ahuhu range of haircare products from M.Asam ahead of their UK launch. With a saving over £50, the kit is available to buy now here.
After speaking with the lab team, I discovered they have very impressive results on the immediate strength and thickness of existing hair as well as the immediate reduction in the appearance of breakage and fallout. This is so essential in keeping your spirits up – I know from experience of hair loss due to illness just how it can get you down.
With regular topical application around the root, the ingredients in daily scalp treatment can help to address ongoing scalp problems and hair weakening. I especially liked the deep yet gentle, clarifying clean of the Ahuhu shampoo and the immediate cooling effect of these formulas on the scalp. I have both psoriasis and eczema so it was a great test. Using these Ahuhu treatments is also a great anti-ageing technique as a fuller, healthier looking hair and scalp can take years off. I always recommend doing a patch test yourself. If you are on medical treatment continue to use products which have been prescribed.
This collection is perfect for anyone looking for a beauty formula that specialises in hair weakening and breakage. You can try it yourself with the added confidence of the 60-day money back guarantee from QVC and if you’re buying it as a thoughtful gift for a loved one in need of a confidence boost, you’ll have the added benefit of an extended money back till 31st January 2021.
* Avoid using strong colour on roots as this can cause breakage and scalp irritation * Lower the temp of your hairdryer * Use the right brush or comb to avoid pulling and breakages
It’s certainly the weather for home baking (which I do for my dad), horse rugs and several coats a day getting soaked. I was on a photoshoot recently, which I’ll tell you about in another blog, but it ran over a week with my most hated 5am start time. I always panic that I won’t wake so I set every alarm.
The most popular gift of the season, of any beauty that I’ve ever been involved with no matter the retailer magazine or brand, is from Elemis. Available now for less than the price of the £55 Pro Collagen Marine Cream, which is included in the kit. Click here to buy now.
This year the choice of 3 – Warm Tonka & Vanilla, Modern English Rose or my favourite Neroli Blossom. With fruity, fresh and floral notes of sweet orange, orange blossom (Neroli), Petitgrain from the leaves and twigs of the bitter orange tree. As an aromatherapist these are my new heaven in the shower!
With a value of £184, giving a saving of over £130! I highly recommend for a WOW present or a self purchase to try this brand or replenish your favourites. The collection includes a face and body routine of 8 products and comes divinely boxed, bowed and tagged ready for gifting. I am so looking forward to my shows with Keeley and the Elemis team launching on QVC Saturday 7th November 9pm.
MAKE BEAUTY SAFE CAMPAIGN BABTAC
I have unfortunately seen so many changes in standards within the beauty industry over my career. From my college lecturing roles of base qualifications, to advanced training 1,000’s of salons, hotels and spas across the world to industry advisory roles of today.
So, I am asking if you would like to click sign this to support the industry governing body, of which I am an advisor to. The aim is to bring back the high standards of beauty across the board of training and regulatory registration. That way you know who and where to find the great training places, qualified individuals, salons and spas.
In the meantime, feel free to tag me on any one of my platforms to give a shout out to great salons and services. From mobile hairdressers and therapists to home salons as well as the larger salons and spas, I would love to know your thoughts and who you recommend. I will be doing more features on this in the future.
Look after yourselves and each other.
