Very Thirsty Hair!! (Bleach London Review)

Hi everyone,
So recently I've had quite a bit of trouble with my hair, this is a bit of a long story, so sit back and relax for this one!

About a week ago I got it into my head that it would be a great idea to go blonde! (Side note, I have been blonde before and am naturally a dirty blonde,so I do know the whole process of going blonde) last time I went blonde I did it professionally at a salon, this time I took it upon myself to dye it (this was never a good idea) at the time I had brown hair with blonde ombré, so just dyed the top blonde, obviously it turned out a brassy orange, I then went off and got bleach and I actually think I bleached my hair twice in the same day (which is NOT a good idea EVER) basically I ruined my hair and it was completely dead and lifeless as to be expected!

I then ended up dying my hair back to brown and wanted to get my ombré back! 
I left my hair brown for about a week as I didn't want to damage it even more by doing the ombré! I decided to try and find some hair masks to try and put moisture back into my hair and repair it, I got a few but none of them really helped 

UNTIL..........

I came across this hair mask from Bleach London, I have never heard of this brand before and thought it looked quite good! It is called Bleach Reincarnation Mask,it claims to resurrect and hydrate bleached or coloured hair and improve elasticity. And is enriched with sunflower seed extract and micro wheat proteins to give great shine and strengthen colour vibrancy. 

This is what made me me buy this product as it is designed for damaged bleached hair, I'm not going to lie, I did think this was going to be another one of those products that claim to do all these wonderful things to your hair but not actually help the problem what so ever!


This here is what the product looks like





So it says to wash hair with shampoo, towel dry and then apply mask to damp hair, leave in for about 15-20 minutes and wash out. 
I applied it to my hair as directed, and wow!!!! Just wow!!! I was actually so surprised with the outcome, like my hair was so unbelievably damaged before,and after using this it has made my hair practically back to normal! It made me so happy to see my hair looking normal again, and was finally able to have my fringe down instead of pinned back! 
So if you have bleached the crap out of your hair or is in bad shape and you think there's no hope for your hair ever getting healthy again, before you reach for the scissors I definitely suggest you go out a pick this up!! It's in boots for only £6.00 which is a killer price! 


Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Let me know if you have used this product or any other products by Bleach London, would love to hear your thoughts & opinions!

Body Lotions


Heyo,
I am going to do a little body lotion review. This is only going to be a short one as I am only reviewing 3 lotions.
I am going to start off with
Yes To Carrots body butter. This is 'C Through The Dry Spell Deliciously Rich Body Butter'
I used to be OBSESSED with Yes To products, they are awesome because all the ingredients are natural, this is blended with carrot seed oil, has carrot juice, pumpkin, sweet potato and dead sea mud all crammed into one pot, which is bloody fantastic! This is really great for anyone suffering with dry skin, it keeps your skin moisturized for ages. The smell of it may not be everyone's cup of tea but I think it just smells really creamy and slightly sweet, it's a natural non chemically smell.





Secondly I have these two gems from a brand called Ginger & Co. I think they are quite a unknown brand but I thought I'd give them a go!
First I have this body lotion, it's called 'Soft On You Daily Lotion' it does make my skin really soft. The smell of this reminds me of Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash. It contains mallow, lemon balm and rose. The product packaging is in a 1950's style which I think adds a nice touch. I like how it feels on my skin as it's not too oily and takes seconds to absorb, it also leaves my skin smelling delicious!




I then got their hand cream called 'Hand It To Me Dreamy HandCream' it again has the same scent as the body lotion. This really keeps my hands soft and hydrated all day long. I feel it is very important to regularly moisturize hands as you are constantly using your hands all day, everyday and they can get dry,sore and damaged so pampering them from time to time is wonderful as they will definitely thank you for it!
Side note: The one thing I loved that is written on the tube is this 'every boy in the town will want to hold your hand' I just thought this was really sweet!




Let me know if you have ever tried these, and what your thoughts are in them!
