Bumble & Bumble Mending Complex Review

products for damaged hair
how to get rid of split ends

Now that I've had my hair cut, I'm determined to look after it as much as I can. That means, less straightening and more protecting. Recently, I've been getting in to using cream oil heat protecting products and one that stood out for me was this one from Bumble & Bumble. Having tried and loved the shampoo and conditioner and the hair masque from the same range, I was over the moon that this was just as good. Mending Complex is designed to decrease brittleness, reduce flyaways and renew shine, it also strengthens and protects mechanically damaged hair inside out leaving it smooth and hydrated. 

This can be applied to damp or dry hair and doesn't need to be rinsed off. I usually put it on before blow drying and then afterwards as a styling product. It works very well at leaving my hair, particularly my ends, very smooth and soft and taming flyaways. I didn't need a lot of product to cover my hair, just a small splodge will do, meaning this bottle will last me a very long time which is always a bonus for haircare products that are on the pricier side. Overall, I love using this and loved the whole range in general. Anyone with dry, damaged, colour treated hair should definitely check out the whole collection, you won't be disappointed!

Have you tried this range before or any other Bumble & Bumble products?

Because my lips aren't the most smoothest of things, I have always been a cream lipstick fan. Not that I don't like matte lipsticks at all, but cream ones always give you the best finish, don't you agree? Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks are made with a luxurious formula ensuring that your lips are hydrated and moisturised with an intense colour pay off. Bang is an bright, orange-red with a soft luminous finish. The rich, buttery texture is great and applies smoothly with no dragging or pulling and lasted six hours on me. I absolutely adore the packaging, so sleek looking and completely sturdy. I'm not usually a liner girl, but this one makes the colour so much more defined and is also very soft and moisturising. Overall, a massive thumbs up from me and I'm currently looking at getting a few of the pink shades for summer, who's with me?

where to get my hair coloured in london

Last Wednesday, I had the pleasure of visiting The House of Rush salon for a hair colour, treatment and cut. The salon, located on Piccadilly consists of two floors, a small ground floor where a couple of nail bars are situated and the impressive first floor boasts a gorgeous reception area complete with a bar, spacious hair desks with large mirrors, a colour bar and a relaxing hair wash room with massaging chairs. 

I was greeted with a lovely smile from the receptionist who promptly took my jacket to hang in the cloakroom. I was then introduced to my stylist, Nita who talked through the type of colour I wanted and what style of hair cut I was going for. Nita was very thorough in her explanations and I quickly trusted her with what she was recommending. The colour was applied in a record time and all I had to do was sit back, relax and enjoy a few magazines with my cloudy apple juice and pretzels. The dye was then washed off and a treatment for dry/damaged hair was applied. Again, I felt extremely relaxed and comfortable in my massage chair while listening to the sound of birds singing. Now for the cut, I wanted to get rid of my dry ends, so I told Nita to just go in for the kill and banish them once and for all. She knew I wanted to keep some length, so ensured that the end result wasn't going to be too shocking. After my volume boosting blow dry, I had a look in the mirror and absolutely loved my new hair! The colour looked incredible and the cut was spot on. I am extremely happy with my new look and cannot recommend Rush enough. Thank you so much for having me and thank you to Nita for making me look beautiful, for once in my life!

Rush salons are located all around London and South East England. The Rush shop also stocks brands such as Kerastase, GHD, Elemis and Rodial. Make sure you out the website for more details.
