My hair is strong but between colour, bleach and heat styling it’s taken a battering over the past few months. Every so often I get on a hair-health kick and that’s the phase I’m in right now. I’ve coloured in a natural light brown shade in the hope my roots wont be too atrocious, I have plans for some highlights/lowlights to give it a little more depth while keeping it close to my own shade but other than that I’d like to be kind to it again for a while and when I saw Fleur De Force raving about this I knew I have to try it. She has long, highlighted hair so if it works miracles on her ends I figured it would totally restore mine and y’know.. it’s not far off.
You melt the balm over a heat source such as warm water of a radiator until it is soft enough to scoop out. You don’t need much, rub it in the palms of your hands and it becomes more fluid and oily, apply that to your dry/damaged ends and voila.. easy as pie. The idea is that you leave it on for 20 minutes prior to shampooing but let’s face it this stuff aint cheap, I’m leaving it on overnight! I pop on my Soap & Glory turban (also worth it’s weight in gold by the way) and sleep my way to more beautiful hair.
A lot of products and hyped up by beauty blogger/vloggers and from what I’ve tried very few merit the amount of press they receive but you will be hearing A LOT about this and it will be completely deserved. My ends are soft, smooth and appear almost ‘virgin’, no sign of damage whatsoever, I only wish this had been around when I had to have several inches cut off after a bad product melted my lengths. Perhaps it could have saved them.
It’s been in and out of stock on the Boots website this week as the whole Salon At Home range has a third off but if you get your hands on it buy it, I will repurchase on sale or not!
