/ beauty review / Paul Mitchell - shampoo + conditioner

Paul Mitchell products are probably my favourite. I love all their ranges and have only ever been slightly disappointed by the Forever Blonde Conditioner - purely because I like my hair to have a tinge of grey to it. 

You can only imagine my horror when I realised I had completely run out of everything. I take pride in being prepared and I don't think my hair has recovered from the shock of using my sisters stuff.

Yeah I know that's a slight exaggeration - I think I'm most upset at the cost of replacing them all!

Super Skinny line

It's hardly a secret that I have a lot of unruly hair - genuinely the most time consuming aspect of my entire beauty regime. 

Originally my hairdresser recommended this stuff and I was reluctant to try it - for the life of me I don't know why.

They both have a faint fruity smell, I always say apples but I'm not entirely sure. 

Because I have so much hair I normally rinse once with a nourishing shampoo and then apply the Super Skinny Shampoo midway to the tips (I hate having flat roots). Other shampoos I've used make my hair feel horrible when I rinse them out - that kind of dry knotty feeling - but this stuff is the least offensive one I've experienced. 

The Super Skinny Daily Treatment is the definite hero here. I'm really not being over the top when I say it's life changing (well maybe a little) but it just makes your hair feel gorgeous. The bottle is £13.95, but a little goes such a long way, and if you leave it in your hair the results are genuinely exceptional. 

The claim of reduced drying time is minimal - but it takes me so long anyway I probably wouldn't notice!

Previously I've also mentioned the Super Skinny Serum - if you're going to buy any of this range go for that one. I promise you won't regret it.

A word of warning with this stuff. If your hair is already fairly straight or thin, then this stuff isn't for you. It take so much volume out of my hair and makes it quite slick - so I can only imagine what it would do to someone with already straight hair!

ColorCare Range

Bought following a dip into going dark brown (that lasted about a month) I wasn't too sure if I was going to keep using my Color Protect haircare. Then I realised bleaching is a form of colouring (yeah I'm slow) and that this stuff would probably be quite good to use once in a while to give it a pamper. 

Because I can't bear to wash my hair without at least one of the Super Skinny range - I alternate between the Color Protect Daily Shampoo and Conditioner.

Now, I'm not going to endorse this pair as strongly as the ones mentioned a bit further up ;) - however they are exceptional products. For the month I was trying to hold onto the brown I had dyed into my hair I can honestly say it didn't fade at all. Given how quickly colour normally washes out of porous bleached hair you can't deny that something was intervening.

It also gives a really nice texture to my hair - a great every day shampoo and conditioner especially because of the UVA and UVB protection. Suncream for the hair.

This is probably one of my most endorsing posts - and I have absolutely no reason to do so - I just love this stuff!!!
