Retailbox Secret Box #18 – Pureology Curl Complete Shampoo & Conditioner Review

If you follow me on Social Media, you would have seen my clues, giveaway and eventual unveiling of the contents of the Retailbox Secret Box no. 18. Not sure what the RBSecretBox is? #RBsecretbox is an exciting opportunity for new and existing Retailbox customers to treat themselves to premium products they have possibly not tried before. Each #RBsecretbox is priced according to the products inside so prices will vary as every box is different and from different suppliers. This is an exclusive offer with limited stock and a massive discount making it a much sort after offer and a bonus of no subscriptions to tie you down. The only clue that was given on Retailbox about box #18… ‘Enhance your curly side with this vegan Sulphate free range’. So what was inside the box? This was my first time trying this brand and I have been very curious (to say the least) as all the reviews I have read are stellar. Pureology Curl Complete Shampoo – R278 This shampoo is specifically formulated for curly colour-treated hair, which is perfect for my naturally curly and highlighted (read: DRY!) hair. The shampoo foams well for a sulphate-free product and gently cleanses the hair. The formula is thick and creamy and smells lovely. Curl Complete Shampoo contains an Anti-Fade Complex and Coconut Oils to replenish moisture and erase frizz. Pureology Curl Complete Conditioner- R316 I was worried that the conditioner would be too light for my hair and that I would have to use half the bottle to detangle this bossiekop, but the conditioner turned out to be my favourite of the two...

The Pink Power invisibobble for Breast Cancer Awareness

I have only recently discovered Invisibobble and now I understand why everyone seems to be so obsessed. These little ‘telephone-cord-looking’ hair rings are fabulous.  It stays in place, it doesn’t tug or pull, it’s strong, anti-allergic and non-soaking. They say it doesn’t leave a kink in your hair, but because my hair is just kink, I can’t really guarantee that ;) I have also seen gorgeous styles created with this little beauty. You can check some of them out HERE. Invisibobble has released a limited addition Pink Power bobble in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. With our limited BCA Edition featuring our brand new invisibobble shade Pink Power with the BCA ribbon looped inside the hair ring we collaborate with Breast Cancer Now to help them continue their strong work in breast cancer research. Let’s support each other! Invisibobbles retail for R80 per pack of 3 and are available at salons and on the web at Retailbox and Takealot. If you have your heart set on Pink Power, you can contact Hair Cair on +27 21 448 8847 to find out where the BCA bobbles are stocked....

The Retail Box #SecretBox12 introduces the new Schwarzkopf BC Oil Miracle Barbary Fig Oil range

Just in case you haven’t heard of the Retail Box Secret Box before… The Secret Box is a little box filled with big surprises! Secret Box contains a secret selection of premium products from leading beauty and hair care companies and the products are deluxe travel sizes to full size. Secret Box is an exclusive offer with limited stock and a massive discount making it a much sought-after offer.  In short, the Retail Box Secret Box is box filled with surprises at a bargain price. The most recent box was no exception. It sold out in record time. And I’m not just saying that. Even though Retail Box sent me one, I still wanted to order another as the box was that good. But nope, all sold out before I even had a chance. Why did I want more? Have read below and make a note that the box sold for only R190! Introducing the new Schwarzkopf BC Oil Miracle Barbary Fig Oil hair care range. The BC Oil Miracle Barbary Fig Oil hair care range has been specifically designed for very dry, damaged and brittle hair. The range contains Barbary Fig Oil and micro-keratin. Why? Barbary fig seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids and tocopherols. It protects against free radicals, stimulates the cells and delivers intense hydration. The formula combines the caring natural oil with micronized keratin, which rebuilds the hair’s structure without weighing it down. Here are my thoughts on the 3 products that were in the Secret Box. BC Oil Miracle Conditioning Milk The leave-in conditioner gives my hair amazing shine and incredible softness. And it doesn’t weigh my...

Tangle Teezer… worthy of its cult status?

Short answer: Yes. Stick around and I’ll tell you why I think so. A Tangle Teezer was on my birthday wish list and the amazing girls of Freebees PR & Marketing surprised me with one. Birthday made! Thank you again. I have always been curious to know if the Tangle Teezer is truly worth the hype. I have those cheap ‘knock-offs’ and I couldn’t help but wonder if there really was such a big difference between these detanglers and the Tangle Teezer. If you’ve ever wondered the same thing, let me tell you now: there is no comparison! We received a Tangle Teezer Compact. How gorgeous is this design? When I say ‘we’, I mean Cara and myself. All the hair care goodies I try, are used on these curls as well… I try very hard to care for my little girl’s locks as best I can. I want her to one day love her curls as much as I do. Firstly, let me tell you how and when detangling of our curly mops happen… combs touch our hair only on wash days and when loads of conditioner covers every strand. I wash my hair every day and honestly I don’t really struggle to detangle my hair. During summer, Cara’s hair is also washed every day (sweat, playschool sand, etc) and even then, detangling is a chore. When we can skip a day or two between washes (which I prefer) you can only imagine how hard it is. Cara also sleeps on her back and the matted mess on the back of her head some mornings is quite a...
