Hey lovelies.. hope you have all had a great weekend. Today was such amazing weather in London this was probably the first time I feel like I've seen the sun and no rain since I got back from Miami it really was such a gorgeous day. I have taken some pics which will be up soon but wanted to post pictures from last night and talk a little bit about my recent hair cut.
On Friday I was invited down to RUSH hair to and treated to a complimentary haircut and treatment. I was so glad as it came at the right time, my layers had grown out and my recent holiday had affected the condition of my hair. It felt pretty dry and really dehydrated and so my stylist Omorfi recommended the L'oreal Botox treatment. I have to say I was pretty excited at the sound of this, the main purpose of the treatment is to smooth away split ends and help really correct the damage of heat styling. In a smilar way that bottox smooths away wrinkles this product for the hair is meant to deposit molecules inside damaged hair and as the water evaporates the molecules spread sealing gaps and repairing breakages (I know very technical) The treatment is meant to last on the hair for up to 10 washes and I have to say once my hair was blow-dried I noticed such a huge difference. It felt so thick and fluffy yet at the same time smooth and shiny. To have this treatment done in a RUSH salon is about £25 and is something I would probably recommend if you have the tendency to colour and use heat frequently. I also have to say I had the BEST head massage whilst receiving this treatment I honestly nearly fell asleep, I think I'd pay £25 just for that!
Since I've been around 15 I have always had the same person cut my hair.. (Big Shout out to you CLAIRE) I very rarely go elsewhere to get my hair cut just because Claire always knows what I'm thinking I can can quite literally sit down and say nothing and love what she's done. I was however quite excited to let someone else touch my hair just because once in a while it's nice to get someone elses input and everyone cuts hair differently. My stylist Omorfi at the branch in One New Change in the city made me feel comfortable and seemed to be on exactly the same page as me. I really didn't have to say much to her as she knew exactly what she wanted to do and everything she said I agreed to. I was so impressed by the cut and the service at RUSH and would definitely consider going back.

Blunt fringe which I asked Omorfi to cut deeper in at the sides
Omorfi used some amazing products on my hair before proceeding to blow dry and I thought I would mention these as I am considering purchasing some of them. I felt with all the products she used none of them felt heavy in the hair and they all smelt divine. Omorfi used all products on my hair whilst it was wet, I have to admit I don't tend to use many products when my hair is wet more so when it's dry.
Shu Uemura Essence Absolue - Nourishing Protective Oil
I think this was my favourite product that Omorfi used. It is an oil that absorbs really well into the hair reinforcing moisture levels of dry hair. It leaves the hair feeling super soft and I have to the smell is Camellia petal which smells exactly like the Shu Uemura cleansing oil which I have recently started using again.
Shu Uemura - Tasai Cream
This product was used to help shape and sculpt the hair but also to create a flawless look. Again this product is really moisturising for the hair but also great for defining layers and movement within the hair.
Redken - 05 Matte Sponge
Omorfi used this to again define layers and texture. The consistency of this product is as the name states 'sponge' like it's really bouncy and blue in colour. She used this product by working it through the roots of my hair.
Kerastase - Ciment Thermique
This is a heat activated reconstructor for weakened hair. This product is designed to be used with heat, it works on the fibres internally and protects the surface of the hair.
Overall I had a really good experience as RUSH and for someone who doesn't like to venture out of their hairdresser comfort zone I was pleasantly surprised.
