Brushing your teeth the natural and earth friendly way

beauty

Introducing Colgate’s first bamboo toothbrush – the Colgate® Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrush.

The handle is made with 100% natural, biodegradable bamboo and is free from plastic packaging, so it’s a great choice for environmentally conscious shoppers.

The brush features tapered slim-tip bristles infused with Binchotan charcoal which get to those hard-to-reach places whilst gently cleaning the gums.

The stylish design of the brush has etching on the handle, acting as a thumb grip, and is coated in natural beeswax to prevent the bamboo from getting water damaged in the bathroom.

We love that Colgate are taking a step in the right direction, the brush is smaller in length than some making it easy to pack, and for those sleep deprived mummies and daddies you won’t need reminding if you’ve brushed or not as the brush looks slightly darker when wet so easy to check ☺️

The new Colgate® Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrush is now available from ASDA and Waitrose. RRP £4.00

Max out fine hair with Philip Kingsley

beauty

Hands up if you need to tackle flat hair 🙋🏼‍♀️ This @philip_kingsley #maximiser, £16.50 is a dream! Our roots have never had so much lift!

Having forever dealt with flat, flyaway hair that suffers from looking lank a day after washing, no matter what our wash schedule is like, this is a life-changer. This spray is light and fine, giving body and fullness throughout the hair whilst handling flyaways, frizz and protecting your hair from UV!

Fine hair is hair in which the diameter of each individual strand is fine. What may surprise you is that those with fine hair actually have more hairs on their scalp than any other hair texture as there is room for more of them!

How to use: I spray onto damp hair, when it’s close to dry, within the roots and lengths to give it the best boost, leaving my roots fuller and lifted for days and pulling me away from my awful hair solving dry shampoo obsession which I have to rely on to get anywhere! I used to use this from the day after wash until my need to wash – and the Philip Kingsley Maximizer has made my routine so much easier, my hair glossier and fuller at the root too! You’d be crazy to miss out on it, if you suffer like me with pancake hair!

Delve into menthol heaven and revel in amazing beautiful hair!

beauty

Solve dry scalps and boost your hair with the AM-A-ZING @growgorgeoushaircare #backintotheroots scalp masque, £24

The magic of menthol stimulates your scalp, lifting the roots and gives a refreshing cooling sensation making this the perfect vacation beauty treat! It’s a simple process – and only takes as little as ten minutes (I loved the smell and sensation so much that I decided to leave it on for 30 minutes!)

Washing it out (I really didn’t want to as the smell and tingling menthol was so good) was simple, usual was and rinse through and afterwards you can still feel the menthol working away. As cool air hit my head after the warm shower it was chillier but oh-so refreshing!

The results were amazing – from the moment after drying I knew this had some good and that the hydration wonder of hyuralonic acid had worked – as usually after I wash my hair, my scalp is instantly itchy, more noticeable if I go to bed after I wash it. The hairdresser had pointed out that I had a drier scalp on my last visit and advised never to let my hair airdry as moisture sits on your scalp leading it to dry out… (Now i never thought that could be the case!) In this case after application no itch whatsoever for days. I refrained from dry shampoo [self confessed addict – I use way too much] to also see if the condition of my hair would improve. It can get quite oily the second day, not helped by being super flat with no lift – and washing again that quickly only makes it SO much worse. The verdict: My hair didn’t need dry shampoo until halfway through my second full day! This is an unknown even before my pregnancy (recently it has been worse due to the hormones I think!) Also my hair had so much more lift at the root and wasn’t been restricted by my dry ole’ head!

Now can someone please order me endless bottles of this on speed dial pwetty please? I want to use it EVERY day!!! I’m also now desperate to try more of their products now 🙂
