I think I'm a little bit obsessed with hair products. Having had my hair long, short(ish), blonde, dark, red (although I'd really rather forget that as it looked AWFUL on me), straight, curly (I'm talking about YOU, oh great perm of 1991)....well let's just say I've had a few 'looks'. I've had my hair dyed dark for around 2 years now and in general I much prefer it this way - it feels healthier and thicker. But! I still struggle to keep it looking shiny and soft - it can look dull. Admittedly I do use a LOT of products and styling tools on my hair which isn't great, so I'm always on the hunt for products that work for me. (repeats mantra: I WILL have Cheryl Cole hair).
I've found a few shampoo/conditioner combos I like recently, in particular the Essence Omega Range, but I still like to live life on the edge and change things up occasionally, shampoo-wise. So I was thrilled to be able to try the Indulgence Redefined Collection* from Neal & Wolf. The set contains RITUAL Daily Cleansing Shampoo, RITUAL Daily Conditioner and HARMONY Intensive Care Treatment. First impressions - these smell AMAZING. I can't put my finger on it, but something about the smell reminds me of holidays and makes me want to book flights immediately. The first time I used these, I was in a hurry so just used the shampoo and conditioner. I did notice my hair felt really soft after I dried it and the amazing smell remained - hoorah! Over the weekend I decided I'd indulge a little more and try the treatment....and wowza, what a difference! My (normally dry) ends were soft and smooth, my hair felt bouncy, shiny and healthy. The products feel really luxurious too which I love - I felt like I'd had a real treat. It actually reminded me of products an expensive hairdresser used on me once when I had my one and only appointment with them a while ago, before I realised that £150 is crazy money to spend on my 'do.
This set costs £25.95, so isn't cheap - I think I'll be keeping this to use for special occasions when I really want to pamper myself. You can see the rest of the Neal & Wolf range here - I already have my eye on ELEVATE and GLOW as they claim to give the big, shiny hair I'm after, and I'm guessing they smell as gorgeous as the products I tried, too.
Have you tried Neal & Wolf?
