As many of you might have noticed from my last few posts, I have recently gone significantly blonder (click here if you missed it!). I’ve been a little cynical about going lighter as, in the past, my blonde streaks (often mixed in with a red base) tended to go a brassy orange after a month or so.

Scanning through the shelves of Lush, one of my all-time favorite beauty brands, I came across these bottles of Lush Daddy-O Shampoo. A helpful staff member recommended it for keeping my blonde streaks bright and brass-free, and I was sold! They had a sale going on, so I actually walked out with their largest, 500 ml bottle. Nope, never tried it before this financial commitment… I’m pretty much a sucker like that!

Two weeks in, I am relived to say I am so glad I bought the bigger, more economically-sound bottle. Lush’s Daddy-O Shampoo really is a God-send for ‘unnaturally’ blondes!

Have you seen my brand new blonde hair on Instagram? 🙂

But first, let me tell you my hair coloring story so far… I’ve been experimenting with my hair color since my late teens. I started off with organic henna-infused hair masks, and I loved the hint of amber it lent to my tresses. My hair is naturally a deep, dark brown and seems to seep in colors very well. By my early twenties I was buying DIY hair coloring packs, and was known in my circle for my fiery red hair. I believe it gave me an edge, and made meek old me stand out that little bit more among a crowd of strangers.

V-Day is around the corner, and whether you’re painting the town red or having a quiet one indoors with your man, a stylish hairdo can take the night from ordinary to fantabulous.

We all crave a beautiful, healthy mane. Supermarket shelves are loaded with colorful, perfectly marketed bottles promising us the hair of our dreams.

Recently, many major hair-care brands have come under scrutiny for all the nasty additives, including sulfates, in their mix. Consumer awareness is on the rise, people are reading labels, the rise of the organic era is upon us.

Age old beauty secrets include the use of various nut oils, and these are making a comeback into the hair-care scene.
