Ouai Haircare Memory Mist*


When it comes to my hair, the less I fuss with it, the better it looks. I’m not one of these people that can sport intricate ‘dos’ on a daily basis, an instead, I tend to wash, straighten and go. Naturally I’ve got wavy hair that’s prone to frizz, so living in Scotland means I have to figure out ways of keeping hair looking smooth all day long. I use all the regular products – blow dry sprays, serums and oils, but for days when humidity is high, I need to bring in the big guns!


That’s where Ouai’s Memory Mist comes in. Unlike most hairsprays I’ve tried in the past, Ouai’s offering is completely weightless, and doesn’t leave hair looking or feeling dried out or sticky. If I’m wearing my hair down, once it’s styled, I give it a quick blast of the Memory Mist, brush through and go. The weightless formula gives hair a boost of volume and shine, yet doesn’t feel crisp or sticky. On days I’ve used it, my hair just feels great all day – there is no frizz by 4pm, instead it looks just done all day long!

Ouai Haircaire Memory Mist is priced at £25 and is available from Panache Cosmetics here.

Michael Van Clarke 3”’ More Inches Pre-Wash Treatment*

As a not-so-natural blonde, I put my hair through an absolute tonne. Every eight weeks I get my roots covered up, which involves a good whack of bleach and a few hours, and on a daily basis I blow dry and straighten my hair into tidy oblivion. It’s not exactly a routine which inspires great hair health, so I’m big into trying to undo the damage! My newest acquisition is Michael Van Clarke’s 3”’ Pre-Shampoo Treatment – I’ve tried and loved the shampoo and conditioner from the range, and this treatment is really something special!

Using the Pre-Shampoo treatment really couldn’t be easier – just brush your hair and then apply a generous squeeze of the treatment onto your lengths and ends. I also like to concentrate a little of it on my front layers which can tend to get a little dry and whispy if I’ve overdone it with the straighteners. Depending on your level of damage, you can leave the treatment on for anything from an hour to overnight. Once per week I like to go for the overnight option – applying it to my hair, throwing it up in a top knot, then shampooing it out the following morning.

For such an intensive moisture treatment, it has such a lovely lightweight feeling, and hair does feel weighed down, sticky or greasy the next day either. The formula contains cashmere proteins and amino blends which promise to slow down the ageing process of hair, and gives hair a whole lot of bounce and shine. It’s such a handy little product, and it’s perfect if you’re after a little TLC for your hair.

Michael Van Clarke 3”’ Pre-Shampoo Treatment is priced at £9.00 and is available here.

Kitsch Sport Hair Ties*

I’ve absolutey loved the ribbon tie trend for a good few years now. I love how gentle they are on your hair, and they look super cute too! So, when I got my hands on these Kitsch beauties, I couldn’t have been happier! Especially designed for working out, the ribbons have a rubber coating on the inside to keep hair in place during the hot and sweatiest of work outs, and the colours are just adorable too!

Kitsch Sport Hair Ties are priced at £5.24 and are available here

Toni & Guy Halloween Hair Accessories*


Anyone that knows me, knows that this week is pretty my my favourite of the year! For me, I just adore the run-up to Halloween – it’s probably my favourite out of all the holidays, and I’ve been known to be a little OTT in my celebrations. When I lived in Dubai I forked out the equivalent of about £50 for pumpkins to decorate my balcony, and I’ve had more Jack-O-Lantern manicures than you can imagine!  This year, I’m planning a few spooky-themed outfits, so of course, I’ve been on the look out for the best Halloween accessories available!


I’ve fallen absolutely in love with the Black Widow hair clip from Tony & Guy, which might just be the most glamorous Halloween accessory in my arsenal. The big black jewels are super chic, and I love the tiny little crystals. They glint and glisten in the light, and honestly, I’m just obsessed!


I’m also crushing pretty hard on Tony & Guy’s Pretty in Punk ear cuff. If you’re going for a harder, punkier look for the holiday – this is the accessory for you! It couldn’t be easier to wear either – you just kind of hang the suff around the back of your ear, then pin the chains into your ponytail or updo.


The Pretty in Punk Cuff looks super fun on, and it’s such an effortless way to update your look. It’s not too costume-y either, so I think it would look absolutely gorgeous with a super simple outfit and cute ponytail!

Toni & Guy’s Black Widow hair slide is priced at £16 while the Pretty In Punk Ear Cuff is £12.50. They’re both available here.

Kerastase Bain Satin 1


I’m not sure about you, but there are a few products which I’ve used for absolutely years, and I can’t be without. When I say I’ve had a bottle of Kerastase’s Bain Satin 1 in my closet since childhood, it’s no lie – my mother used to send me to swim class with a bottle of it in my gym bag! Having thick, wavy hair before straighteners were such a big thing meant that frizz was (and still is) the enemy so using a product which really nourished ends was a must have!


Now, with ends which have been all too damaged by bleach and heat styling, every third or so wash, I find myself reaching for the familiar ivory and orange bottle. The formula is incredibly rich and nourishing, and it foams beautifully. I only need a 10p sized blob to thoroughly wash my hair. I then follow up with a Kerastase hair masque. It’s an integral part of my haircare routine, and I can’t see that changing any time soon!

Kerastase Bain Satin is priced at £17.90 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
