For Manchester

For Manchester


Hello Lovelies 

You may have noticed I haven't posted here on my blog for a week, after the events in Manchester last Monday night, it just didn't feel right to post. I had scheduled a post for last Tuesday which did go up but purely because I completely forgot about it due to personal circumstances. Since then I haven't wanted to post and I don't feel able to continue with my blog without mentioning Manchester in some way, being Mancunian born and bred and for other more personal reasons, it just doesn't feel right not mentioning it. 

I thought long and hard about what to do, what to write, and I have decided that I am going to share with you a poem written by Ryan Williams. 


A grey Tuesday morning, 'neath Lancastrian skies
We wake once again to wipe tears from our eyes.
Forced to wear robes of weakness ad pity,
As cowards attack the very heart of our city.

Like always, we'll comfort and hold one another,
A Mancunian family of sisters and brothers.
For a time our strut is reduced to a stagger,
But make no mistake, we'll rekindle our swagger.

We'll learn how to live with another deep scar.
If you think you can beat us, you don't know who we are!

We're Collyhurst, Ancoats, Moston and Sale.
We're Oldham and Bury; Ashton; Rochdale.

We're Pankhurts and Turing, the Gallagher Brothers,
We're Morrissey, Marr and a million others!

We're a city of workers, a city of shirkers.
A city of tracksuits, and bibles and burkas.

Vegetarian, Rastafarian, Athiest, Jew.

100 red! 100% blue.

We're each of us different but never alone.
In the Cosmopolitopia, we get to call 'home'.

So, come at us again, and again if you must. 
Time after time we'll rise from the dust.
You'll never prevail - not against us...

This is Manchester, our MANCHESTER 
And the bees still buzz!

My love and thoughts are with the families of the 22 people who sadly lost their lives that night, may they rest in peace. 

Thank you for reading, much love as always

Zoë x

The Tangle Angel And Tangle Angel Baby - Professional De Tangling Brushes

The Tangle Angel And Tangle Angel Baby - Professional De Tangling Brushes

Hello Lovelies

Today I have a post about a couple of new hair brushes I recently received from Tangle Angel. Before receiving the brushes I had seen them on a couple of blogs I read and heard some great things about them so I couldn't wait to try mine out, I have been using mine for the last few weeks now so I thought it was time to let you know all about the brushes and how I've been getting on with them. 

The brushes I received are the Tangle Angel (£12.95) and the Tangle Angel Baby (£4.95), both in the shade Fab Fuchsia. 

About Tangle Angel

Tangle Angel was designed by celebrity and Royal hairdresser Richard Ward, he designed the Tangle Angel when he found his customers and stylists were struggling with the ordinary de tangling brushes they were using and his stylists were complaining that they slipped out of their hands when they were trying to brush the hair, Richard wanted something that would work for both the consumer and the professional. Richard experimented with different concepts and designs for his detangling brush and the Tangle Angel was born. 

The Tangle Angel comes in a variety of different sizes and there are even Tangle Angels available for pets, they have a paw print on the back which I think is really cute. The brushes available are the Tangle Angel, Tangle Cherub, Tangle Angel Xtreme, Tangle Angel Classic, Tangle Angel Baby, Shine Angel, Pet Angel, Pet Angel Mini and Pet Angel Baby. 

The Tangle Angel

The Tangle Angel came in a clear plastic box, on the side of the box is a little about Richard Ward, the creator and other information on the brush.  I have the Tangle Angel in the shade fab fuchsia, I love pink so it is the perfect shade for me, the brush also comes in a variety of different colours, so if pink isn't your thing, fear not there are many other shades.  

The brush has five unique features, making it different from other de tangling brushes I have used, those features are -

✿ Heat Resistant - Heat resistant bristles retain their shape even when used with the high temperatures generated by hairdryers. 

✿ Antibacterial - Antibacterial additives embedded in the plastic make the Tangle Angel ultra hygienic and safe to use. 

✿ Water Resistant - The Tangle Angel is water resistant and ideal for using in the shower. 

✿ Anti Static - Anti static properties prevent flyaway hair, leaving it smooth and silky. 

✿ Ergonomic Shape - The contoured base retains full bristle height with no reduction in performance once hair is detangled. The design is stunning to look at and also highly functional, the Tangle Angel can be held around the wings for greater control and feel. 

My hair is extremely knotted when it has been washed and towel dried and it is very hard to brush through, the Tangle Angel brushed through my knotted hair really well without tugging at my hair. I don't have my hair blow dried into a style, it is long and straight and because I am unable to dry my own hair, my daughters or partner dry it for me and they brush through my hair whilst drying my hair with the hairdryer and they said the brush was easy to use and it brushed through my hair well whilst drying it and that my hair didn't get tangled at all. They all said that it was much better having a handle on a de tangling brush as it was much easier to use, especially when used with a hairdryer but for general use also.

The brush is easy to clean and because the base of the brush is plastic, hair removes with ease from the brush and bristles when cleaning it. I have PCOS so my hair falls out a lot and there is a lot of hair in the brush after having my hair brushed and even more if it has been washed and dried but the hair does come out easily from the brush and the brush washes well too. 

The anti static claims do work, usually my hair can be quite static and flyaway but after being dried and straightened using the Tangle Angel it isn't flyaway and there isn't any static. 

The Tangle Angel Baby

The Tangle Angel Baby is a small version of the Tangle Angel, I love small things and am always drawn to the miniature beauty products in the drugstore, so anything small I love and this is no exception. The Tangle Angel Baby is exactly the same as the Tangle Angel but smaller, it has a different handle and has a keyring on the end of the handle. I actually gave the baby to my youngest daughter Lissy, she keeps a de tangling brush in her handbag but it is quite big and bulky so this is much better and she can manage to brush through her hair with it when necessary. 

The Tangle Angel Baby has the same 5 unique features as the Tangle Angel and is ideal to keep in a handbag, gym bag or even a child's school bag and would also make a cute, quirky little gift too. I have the Tangle Angel Baby in the shade fab fuchsia too but like the Tangle Angel it is available in other shades if you don't like pink. 

Overall Thoughts

I really like both the Tangle Angel and Tangle Angel Baby, as I said I gave the baby brush to Lissy so I don't use that one, but I have tried it and Lissy likes it and says it's great to keep in her handbag. The Tangle Angel brushes through my hair really well when my hair is wet and when it is being dried and I like how my hair isn't static when my hair has been dried and straightened. The handle is brilliant and makes it so much easier to use than other de tangling brushes I have and my girls both love the fact it has a handle too. I love the angel design and the pink shade too, overall it is a great brush and is lightweight too which is brilliant, if you like using de tangling brushes, I think you'd definitely like the Tangle Angel. 

If you would like to give either of the Tangle Angels a go, you can find the Tangle Angel on their website here and the Tangle Angel Baby here

Have you tried the Tangle Angel? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below, and which shade would you choose?

Benefit GALifornia Blush


Hello Lovelies

I am pretty sure that you'll have heard about the new Benefit blush that launched earlier this year, GALifornia. GALifornia has featured on many a social media account and blog post since it's launch and I was very lucky to receive it as one of my Mothers Day gifts from my gorgeous girls back in March, since then I have used it a lot and thought it was about time I shared my thoughts on it.  

What Benefit Says About GALlifornia - £24.50 - 5g

Benefit’s NEW GALifornia golden pink blusher is part sun, pure fun! It blends bright pink with shimmering gold, capturing the warm glow of California sunshine in a box. The signature GALifornia Dreamin’ scent features notes of pink grapefruit & vanilla. Comes complete with a custom rounded blush brush for soft, diffused application.

My Thoughts



GALifornia is one of Benefits iconic box blushes and is the only Benefit boxed blush I own, I have looked at others many times but for some unknown reason,  never picked any of them up, but when I saw GALifornia, it looked like such a "Zoë shade" as my friends would say, that I knew I had to buy it. However my daughters beat me too it and bought it for me for Mothers Day, I did wonder why they kept distracting me every time I mentioned ordering it online, sneaky girls! 

The blush comes in what is typical of a Benefit boxed blush and is cardboard packaging, the box has an image of a girl wearing sunglasses on the front, and has a surfer come hippy chic vibe about it. Inside there is a mirror on the lid and a rounded edge brush. One thing I did notice is that GALifornia contains 5g of product when other Benefit blushes I have looked at in the past such as Dandelion, Coralisa and Dallas contain 7, 8 and 9g of product and are all priced the same which is a little strange. 



GALifornia has an embossed sun design, which has a gold overspray, the overspray is pretty to look at but doesn't last and after the first couple of uses it doesn't come off onto the skin, I don't mind that because I prefer a matte or satin finish blush. 

One of the first things I noticed about the blush is the scent, Benefit claims GALifornia has a Grapefruit and Vanilla scent but there is a definite coconut scent about it and it reminds me of holidays, it smells lovely, but like the golden overspray the scent is something that fades and over time and becomes faint which is a shame for me as I love the scent. 

The shade of GALifornia is a definite "Zoë shade", I love coral and pink blush shades, they are my go to blush shades for the spring and summer months. GALifornia is a beautiful pink blush with coral tones and could be described as my perfect shade, it is lovely and incredibly pigmented too. I use my MAC 168 or 109 brushes to apply the blush and it applies and blends beautifully. The blush doesn't accentuate my pores and lasts well on the skin, providing around 8/9 hours wear time without fading. 


The swatch above shows a touch of the golden overspray which has since disappeared leaving the same gorgeous shade without the sheen. Although I don't use the brush that comes with the blush to apply it, the brush makes an excellent contour brush, my daughter uses Benefit Hoola bronzer and always said what a great brush it is for contour and she isn't wrong, it is such a good brush and if you have always disregarding it for applying Benefit blush, try it for contour, it's amazing. 

Overall I think it's obvious that I love GALifornia, it is a stunning blush and one I will no doubt get a lot of wear out of over the summer, the shade, formula, application and wear time are all perfect and it's safe to say, I am in love. 

If you would like to try GALifornia, you can find it on the Benefit website here or the Feel Unique website here

I do have another blush favourite coming on the blog soon, so if blush is your thing, keep an eye out for that, it's a beauty! 

Have you tried GALifornia? What is your favourite blush shade? Let me know in the comments section below. 

Thank you for reading, much love as always

Spring Nails With Leighton Denny

Spring Nails With Leighton Denny

Hello Lovelies

I am sure by now you are aware that I am a huge nail polish geek, I adore nail polish and have a rather large collection that's ever growing, you won't see a haul from me that doesn't feature at least one nail polish. So when I received a parcel a couple of weeks ago containing two Leighton Denny nail polishes I was over the moon, I have been using them since and today I am going to be sharing my thoughts on the polishes, and sharing swatches too. The polishes I received are Just Perfect (£12.00) and Porcelain Doll (£12.00)

About Leighton Denny

Leighton Denny’s passion for nails started over 20 years ago. In 2001, 2002 and 2003 Leighton won British Nail Technician of the Year and in 2004 he was voted into the Hall of Fame and became a judge.
For years, Leighton worked on celebrities and on countless fashion shoots and high profile events. In 2005, he decided to launch his own range, pouring all of his passion and expert knowledge into a range of professional quality products. Since then, the range has evolved into one of the world’s leading professional nail care brands.
In 2015, Leighton was awarded an MBE for his contribution to the nail and beauty industry.
My Polishes, Thoughts & Swatches
Spring Nails With Leighton Denny

The two polishes I received are part of the Kaleidoscope collection which has 40 shades including some glitter and metallic shades, plus various different colours. The shade range is brilliant and there is something for all tastes and also polishes to create a French Manicure. Leighton Denny nail polishes are 5-free meaning they do not contain Tosylamide Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde, I always buy 5-free polishes when possible so I was pleased to learn these are 5-free. Leighton Denny polishes all have a high gloss, chip resistant and self levelling finish. 

I have used Leighton Denny Angel Dust for many years, it is a beautiful subtle glitter that I use over many polishes and I love it and apart from Angel Dust I had only ever tried one Leighton Denny polish a few years ago that I picked up in the January sales and it really disappointed me, so I am really pleased I have been able to try these shades to try other formula's and shades from the brand and see if they differ. 

I do use the Leighton Denny large crystal nail file and love that, it is so good and I would highly recommend that if you're after a nail file, I have had mine for around 8/9 months and both myself and my daughters use it and it is still like new. 

Just Perfect - £12.00

Leighton Denny Just Perfect

Just Perfect is what I would call a deep warm toned coral/pink, it is a lovely shade and a shade I would wear all year round. I usually wear coral and pink shades throughout the spring and summer and change my shades up for autumn/winter but sometimes I find a nice coral/pink that I can wear all year and I think this is definitely one of those shades. 

Porcelain Doll -£12.00

Leighton Denny Porcelain Doll

Porcelain Doll is a lovely nude shade with peachy tones, I worried this wouldn't suit me as I am quite pale but it actually looks really nice. Again this is a shade I will wear all year round. 

I like the packaging of the nail polishes, the square bottle with silver lid encased in a clear plastic lid, the clear plastic does come off meaning you can use either lid to hold the brush. The brush I would say is a standard size nail polish brush, I would have preferred a wide brush as I do prefer a wide brush when applying nail polish, but the brush is fine and the polish is easy to apply, it's just a personal preference of mine to use a wider brush.

I needed 3 coats of both shades, I found the brush easy to use and applied 3 thin coats to build up the colour to a nice opaque finish, I always allow each coat to dry before applying another, as I find I don't get any bubbling with the polish applying that way.  The polish has an average drying time and a lovely glossy finish, I did still use a top coat because I always do but the polishes are very glossy so you could miss out the top coat if you didn't want to use one or were in a rush. 

I wore Just Perfect for 6 days without any chipping at all and only removed it because I was having a gel manicure and I wore Porcelain Doll for 5 days without chipping, it chipped on the 6th day. So really good wear time for both shades I thought.  I always use the Essie Gel Couture top coat over all my nail polishes, so I used it when trying out the Leighton Denny polishes too to enable me to try them as I normally would. I liked the finish of the nail polishes, they are lovely and glossy and looked really nice and I can definitely see myself wearing them quite a lot, both my girls have tried the polishes too and really liked both shades. 

Swatches - Without Top Coat

Leighton Denny Just Perfect and Porcelain Doll Swatch

Swatch Of Just Perfect - With Top Coat

Leighton Denny Just Perfect Swatch

Hopefully you can see in the swatch photograph of both polishes how glossy they are without a top coat applied, with the top coat they are super glossy. I stupidly forgot to photograph my nails whilst wearing Porcelain Doll but you can still see what a lovely shade it is from the nail wheel swatches. 

Overall I really like both shades and would like to try some more shades from the range, there are some gorgeous bright pink shades that are my kind of shade. I am pleased to say the two shades definitely changed my mind on the brand after having a bad experience with the one shade I had previously tried, they have both been lovely to wear the times I have worn them so far and I am looking forward to wearing them both more throughout the summer and the rest of the year. 

If you would like to try the two polishes I have, you can find Just Perfect here and Porcelain Doll here and if they're not really your kind of shade, you can find all the other shades in the range here

Have you tried Leighton Denny polishes? If so which are your favourite shades? And if not, which is your favourite from the two shades I have? 

Thank you for reading, much love as always

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet Liquid Lipsticks Review And Swatches

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet Liquid Lipsticks Review And Swatches


Hello Lovelies

I have been loving liquid lipsticks for a while now and have tried numerous different brands so far, so when I received 2 of the Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet liquid lipsticks as a gift for my birthday, I was really excited to try them. The shades I have are 402 Fil Rouge and 502 Mania and both shades are perfect for me and I have worn them both so much since receiving them and thought it was about time I shared my thoughts on them with you.  

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet Liquid Lipsticks Review And Swatches

What Giorgio Armani Say About The Lip Magnet Liquid Lipsticks

A light lip gloss of extremely fine texture, unparallelled sensation of weightlessness, intense colour concentration, ultra chic matte finish and flawless, long lasting wear, Lip Magnet is all this and more. 

This weightless liquid lipstick leaves lips with a smudge proof, ultra matte finish. The formula is four times thinner and has twice as much colour as a traditional lipstick. It delivers eight hour wear and it's unique, slim, quill applicator design gives ideal precision for a perfect lip contour. Lip Magnet is the first matte lip gloss to offer unprecedented colour concentration in the finest of textures, while perfectly fusing with the lips. 

This long lasting matte lip colour is never greasy or sticky, it does not migrate or dry your lips. Lips stay hydrated and perfectly defined for hours on end, a very pleasant bare lips sensation. 

402 Fil Rouge - £28.00 3.9ml

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet Liquid Lipsticks Review And Swatches

The packaging of the Lip Magnets is a clear plastic tube, the plastic isn't flimsy and almost has a weight to it, it isn't heavy at all but feels really well made and sturdy, the lid is the Giorgio Armani trademark red lid with the silver GA on the front and looks classy and one twist to the left opens the liquid lipstick and it closes again with a satisfying click when twisted to the right. 

The applicator I have to say is the best I have seen and used from any liquid lipstick brand I own, and considering I do have quite the collection, I have many different applicators to compare it to. The applicator is described by Giorgio Armani as a "quill applicator" it has a pointed end meaning application is extremely precise and very simple and makes applying the liquid lipstick effortless especially around the cupids bow and the lip line.  

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet Liquid Lipsticks Review And Swatches

502 Mania - £28.00 3.9ml

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet Liquid Lipsticks Review And Swatches

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet Liquid Lipsticks Review And Swatches

There are 18 shades available, 8 are pink tones, 3 purple, 4 red and 3 coral tones and all are beautiful. The shades I have are 402 Fil Rouge, a beautiful blue toned red and 502 Mania a bright, almost neon bubble gum pink which is also blue toned. 

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick Swatches

As I said the applicator on the Lip Magnet liquid lipsticks is the best I have seen and used, and that can also be said for the formula. The formula of the liquid lipsticks is completely different to any other formula of liquid lipstick I have tried, it is amazing! It feels so soft and hydrating when applied but dries to a matte finish and yet isn't doesn't feel in the slightest bit drying. The formula is so lightweight it almost feels like I'm not wearing any product, I like to apply one coat and then apply a second, they build up amazingly well without feeling thick or dry, the lipstick is so comfortable to wear it is very different to anything I have tried before, but is incredible. 

I love to wear both the shades I have, Mania will definitely be worn a lot throughout the summer, I have worn them both so much already and know I will continue to do so. They both look really lovely on, neither of them feather or bleed and they feel amazing on the lips. I get around 6 hours wear time before noticing any kind of difference in the way they look if I am drinking and chatting, if I eat, I lose a bit of colour in the centre of my lips but nothing major and these are so beautiful that they are a joy to top up, they layer beautifully and topping up isn't a problem at all.

I cannot find any negatives about the Giorgio Armani Lip Magnets at all, they really are incredible, I have raved about them to my friends and my daughters, my daughters have tried them and love them too and now I am raving about them to you. They are expensive and the most expensive liquid lipsticks I own, but they are worth it as they are also the best liquid lipsticks I own and I will definitely be trying more shades out, the coral shades are calling my name! I am blown away by how good these liquid lipsticks are and cannot recommend them highly enough. 

If you would like to try the Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet Liquid Lipsticks, you can find them on the House Of Fraser website, the Debenhams website or the Feel Unique website. 

Have you tried the Lip Magnets? Which shade do you like best out of the two I have? Let me know in the comments below.

Sexy Hair Blonde - Bright Blonde Violet Shampoo

Sexy Hair Blonde - Bright Blonde Violet Shampoo

Hello Lovelies

Having blonde hair and recently having a nightmare with my colour, I have been using a purple shampoo once a week at least and sometimes everytime I have my hair washed for the last few months. I have tried quite a few purple shampoos but one I hadn't tried is the Sexy Hair Blonde Bright Blonde Violet Shampoo 300ml (£13.95) So when I received it, I couldn't wait to give it a go.

Before receiving the Sexy Hair shampoo, I wasn't aware Sexy Hair had a purple shampoo within their product range, I knew of the Big Sexy Hair which they are most famous for but not that they sold a purple shampoo. I was really pleased and optimistic as myself and my daughters have tried other shampoo and styling products from the brand and they have always been really good.

The History Behind Sexy Hair - Taken From The Sexy Website

We are a product of passion, founded by a dynamo with wits as sharp as his scissors. Michael O’Rourke built an empire by breaking all the rules. From the first, Sexy Hair was a welcome splash of red in a world of weary black and white, and proof that fun can be a seriously powerful serum. His philosophy inspired an army of awesome ambassadors, who subscribe to the school of “anything is possible”. And today with industry guru Karl-Heinz Pitsch at the helm, that attitude infuses everything we do. We believe in making waves. Turning up the volume. Being seen and heard. Because if there’s one thing we’ve learned it’s that you’ve gotta take a risk to get the reward. And with Sexy Hair now sitting pretty in more than 60 countries and over 60,000 salons in the U.S. alone, our ubiquitous star logo stands as a testament to the incredible things that can happen when you’re not afraid to push a few buttons.
"Every woman wants to feel sexy so I put it in a bottle" - Michael O'Rourke
Sexy Hair Blonde Bright Blonde Violet Shampoo 300ml
Sexy Hair Blonde - Bright Blonde Violet Shampoo

Sexy Hair Blonde - Bright Blonde Violet Shampoo

The Sexy Hair Blonde, Bright Blonde Violet Shampoo is said to cleanse the hair, help counteract brassiness, keep the colour bright and the hair hydrated. The Sexy Hair Blonde, Bright Blonde Violet Shampoo comes in a 300ml bottle, the bottle is gold in colour with black writing and a black lid and has purple colouring around the middle of the bottle. Sexy Hair have a shampoo and conditioner for blonde hair which is the same gold and black design so the purple differentiates between the blonde range and the purple shampoo. 

The bottle has a pop up lid and the product comes out via a small opening once the lid has been pressed down at one side. 

Sexy Hair Blonde - Bright Blonde Violet Shampoo

The shampoo is a bright purple colour, you can see some of it around the opening of the bottle in the above photograph as I had used it once before it was photographed (bad blogger) 

I have been having my hair tinted for several years, and for the last few years I have had the same colour tint on my hair and then had a few different colour blonde low lights put through my hair to even things out, however a few months ago I noticed my hair had started to look really warm, not so much brassy but just warm toned and I really didn't like it . My hairdresser who is also my sister said that my medication would have caused the change in the colour since she hadn't changed any of the tints she uses on my hair. 

My sister changed my tint to a much more ash toned tint which I prefer and told me to use a purple shampoo, she explained that the purple shampoo would knock out any warm/brassy tones in my hair, so ever since I have been doing. I do still have some warm bits at the back of my head, my sister said it will take a while to get it all sorted but to keep using purple shampoo in the meantime so I have been using a purple shampoo since and tried at least 5 different brands, and I also keep having the ashy tint applied every 5 weeks.  

The first time I used the Sexy Hair shampoo I was surprised that despite not containing any sulphates, the shampoo lathers up quite well. It is easily distributed through my hair, it lathers well and rinses out well too. Another thing I noticed the first time I had used the shampoo was that my hair didn't feel as knotted, my hair gets very knotty when it's been washed and towel dried and is a pain to brush through if I don't have detangler sprayed through it, but it was fine without the detangler and although it was slightly knotty, it was no where near as bad as it would normally be. 

Once dried my hair is soft and smooth and really shiny and my colour is bright ash blonde and any warm tones I do have left at the back of my hair look so much better and much less warm, and I am left with soft, shiny and ashy blonde hair. I get a lot of compliments on my hair colour and the Bright Blonde Violet Shampoo helps to keep it, it's lovely ash blonde shade and once my sister has continued to work her magic the remaining warm patch at the back will be perfect too but for now the Sexy Hair is helping my hair look it's best and feel lovely too. 

My hair isn't bleached it is tinted,  as it is naturally blonde I don't need bleach, but this shampoo would also work really well if you have bleach blonde hair or silver grey hair too, to keep your colour looking bright or if you have some areas of brassiness you'd like to take out. I love how soft and shiny my hair is after using the shampoo and that it isn't badly knotted after towel drying too. The shampoo has a lovely scent which lingers on my hair for a while too, leaving my hair not only looking and feeling soft and clean, but smelling it too. 

Overall I am really pleased with this shampoo, it does a great job of keeping my colour looking ashy toned and knocks the warm tones out of that pesky bit at the back that is taking a while to catch up with the rest of my hair. My hair feels lovely and soft and looks shiny and it smells lovely, as you know I have very oily hair and struggle with my hair being oily only a few hours after washing it, when using the Sexy Hair, I have my hair washed in the morning and use a little dry shampoo at the roots the morning after and am able to wear my hair up in a messy bun, so I can go every other day without washing my hair instead of every day when using the Sexy Hair. 

If you would like to try the Sexy Hair Blonde, Bright Blonde Violet Shampoo, you can find it on the HQ Hair website here 300ml priced at £13.95. 

Have you tried the Bright Blonde Violet shampoo? Or any of the Sexy Hair products? Chat with me in the comments below and let me know.
