Natural Hair Care....



I've talked about this brand before, and I still use their products, still love their products and think they are a great brands that more people should know about. 


Klorane is a french brand that is now one of the most sold hair care brands in European pharmacies. When I see it in pharmacies I get really excited and stock up. 


Their motto is Plant-based haircare: Pure and Proven. 
Which I totally agree with, their products are sodium chloride, silicone and sulfate free so everything is gentle yet effective. I use their dry shampoo, for me and for my kit, they also do a great variety of shampoos and conditions for all hair types. 


I've been using the shampoo and conditioner for Colour Treated Hair which contains Pomegranate. It smell lovely, it feels lovely and makes my hair lovely.









Their pomegranate is grown in Morocco, where from its peel, they obtain an extract naturally rich in tannins that binds the color onto the keratin and prevents color from fading. The effectiveness of their pomegranate has been scientifically proven and patented: hair color lasts on average twice as long.


It claims to give longer lasting colour, repair, protect and enhance colour. Which it does! My hair feels soft yet not like its going to be greasy the next day, every time I wash my hair it feels like I'm giving it a treatment. 


Check out their website, I might try the Almond Shampoo next. 
Klorane is often sold in Pharmacies so look out for it, great price point £6 200ml Shampoo. And at John Lewis. 


I've been asked to share these videos with you guys. They are pretty helpful, quick and easy with Hairstylist Laura Solari.











Let me know what you think, hope they are helpful

Thanks to all my new followers!

Get those brows back.....




I have a wonderful product for all you peeps who have over plucked your brows.

It's the Eyebrow Renewing Serum by M2 Beaute!


My eyebrows, although quite thick, naturally finish very short. I fill them in every day with a little make up,  but wanted to know if I could get some more length with actual brow hairs. I tried the M2 Beaute Serum for 6 weeks and nothing happened. I was disappointed but knew that my hairs never grow there. I'm stuck with my slightly too short brow.


BUT.... I also have sparse hairs at the beginning of my brows, so I started applying the product in this area, and along the bottom line of hairs for thickness.
After 6 weeks my brows were fuller! Amazing


Application is super easy, apply the clear serum onto clean dry brows, before bed is best as you don't want to put make up on over it. It comes in a wand form with a lip gloss type end. 

You can't see it that well in these photos, but I thought most of you would want to see them anyway. 
(Completely clean of make up)











They are definitely fuller, thicker and maybe a tiny bit darker. 
The serum restores, replenishes and transforms the eye brows, giving them a volume boost. 


Their bit - M2 Beaute place great value on the quality of natural beauty through effective-ingredient cosmetics. Our products are developed in close cooperation with recognized scientists and physicians on the basis of comprehensive medical research.


Ingredients - 

  • MDN* 
    promotes the natural growth of eyebrows
  • Black sea rod oil 
    naturally derived eyebrow growth promoting ingredient
  • Biotin (Vitamin B7)
    strengthens brows
  • Hyaluronic acid
    gives the brows a sleek and healthy appearance
  • Prodew 300
    absorbs and binds moisture
  • Hydrolyzed glycosaminoglycans (GAG)
    affix moisture, supporting elasticity making brows flexible and resilient


If you want to reshape your entire brow, I suggest growing them for as long as you can handle it, with the help of the serum. Then tidy up the top line, which will only be a few light hairs but just get that shape sharp and neat. Fill in the brow with make up to the shape you would like. Anything outside that shape remove with tweezers. 


Always start by removing a few hairs, check it from a distance, up close, profile etc then remove a few more, keep going until you have perfect brows. 


If, like me, you only need more hairs in places or have patchy brows, apply the serum where you need it until they have grown back.


I'm really pleased with this product and strongly recommend it, brows are very very important. 
GET YOUR BROWS RIGHT! 


M2 Beaute Eyebrow Renewing Serum is £133
You can buy M2 Beaute products from their website here
Or if you are in the UK , they are sold exclusively at Harrods and Harrods online

Hope that was helpful, I know a lot of people with over plucked brows, maybe you're reading it now...
