  • Our Pick of the Best Travel Beauty Kits

    It’s official people, the summer is upon us. You know what that means?! It’s time for Summer holidays and adventures. If you’re anything like me, a notorious over-packer, you’ll consider for a split second forgoing your usual skincare and hair products for something a little less weighty. Madness I hear you cry. Fear not…a luggage limit doesn’t need to be the reason you undo all your hard work getting your hair and skin in tip top condition. Take a look at my picks of this year’s best travel friendly beauty kits.

    Best for a city break: Thalgo The City Dweller Beauty Kit

    This fab little kit from Thalgo gives you all the skin essentials for a short city break, and all in sizes that will fit in your hand luggage. Winner. You’ll get a Hydra-Marine 24 Gel-Cream, Eye Make-Up Remover, Absolute Radiance Concentrate (a life saver if you’ve had long days in the city air) and Polynesia Sacred Oil. I like to use the oil on my legs for an evening out…but it also works great as a luxurious bath oil if you get a chance for a pamper. Plus, you get a gorgeous make-up bag as part of the set.

    Best for a beach getaway: Decléor Hydrating Starter Kit

    This set is the ideal if you’re planning on sunning yourself on a tropical beach somewhere, as it contains a full aromatherapy face & body ritual to effectively moisturise your skin from tip to toe. All in cabin friendly sizes. Inside you’ll find 3 in 1 Hydra-Radiance Cleansing Mousse 50ml, Neroli Hydrating oil serum, Hydra Floral 24hr Hydrating Light Cream 15ml, 1000 Grain Body Exfoliator 50ml and Aroma Comfort Moisturising Body Lotion 50ml. With this kit you can put together both a face and body ritual to suit your needs in just 2 or 3 steps.

    Best for an active break: Thalgo Travel Skin & Body Care Kit GT15048

    This beauty has everything you need to keep your skin looking fab, but also gives you some everyday essentials too. All with a transparent vanity bag for easy storage. You’ll get Collagen Cream, Collagen Concentrate, 24H Hydrating Body Milk and Marine Shower Gel. This kit also offers a great saving on your anti-ageing favourites. Bonus.

    Don’t forget about your hair: Moroccanoil Miniature Essentials REPAIR Gift Box

    With the inevitable sun exposure you’ll get on most summer getaways, it’s best to take away with you haircare that will nourish your hair and counteract the drying effects of the sun. This cute set contains Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo 70ml, Moisture Repair Conditioner 70ml, Moroccanoil Oil Treatment 25ml and a Detangling Comb. Again, perfect sizes for travel, plus, these products give your hair all the moisture it needs to stay healthy in the sun. Top tip: Apply Moroccainoil Oil Treatment to your hair once you get out of the pool to protect your hair as it dries. I also like to leave it in overnight as a treatment while I’m away.

    Enjoy your travels!

  • How to get rid of brassy tones

    If you’re a blonde like me, no doubt you’ve experienced the strange phenomenon that plagues the unnatural blonde. A week or so after having your hair coloured…the shade you left the salon with is no more, and now your hair has taken on an undesirable yellow, orange or even reddish tone. That’s right, you’ve got brassy hair.

    Brassiness, or unwanted warm tones, typically happens in dark hair that is coloured platinum or blonde, but it can also strike hair that has been highlighted or hair that has been lightened to brown.

    Not to get too technical here, but to understand why this keeps happening, you’ll need to understand a bit about the hair lightening process. Brassy tones become a problem when bleaching or lifting doesn’t get rid of all the underlying pigment in your hair, giving the warm tones an opportunity to reveal themselves. For lightened blonde hair, the underlying pigment is yellow, and for lightened brown to black hair, the underlying pigments are orange to red. When the brassiness starts to rear its head, just think of it as your natural hair saying, “Hi, remember me?”.

    Don’t stress though. There are many options when it comes to dealing with brassy tones, both preventing it and fixing it after it happens.

    The first step towards avoiding brassy tones is to ensure your hair is in tip top condition. Since healthy hair is less likely to turn brassy, add in a bond-protecting service, like L’Oreal Professional’s Smartbond, during the bleaching or colouring process, to protect your hair from damage while colouring and strengthen your strands. Follow this up with nourishing treatments at home, such as Redken All Soft Megamask 200ml. Use this once a week, leaving it on for at least 10 minutes to give your hair a treat and restore hair health.

    Need an at-home quick fix? If you’re a blonde, you’ll need to go for a purple shampoo like such as L’Oreal Professional Silver Shampoo 300ml. Replace your usual shampoo once or twice a week with this baby. Once you’ve lathered up and distributed through your hair, leave for two minutes and then rinse thoroughly. If you’ve had your hair lightened to brown, try a blue-tinted shampoo or conditioner such as L’Oreal Professional Serie Expert Color Corrector 150ml.

    You need to avoid overuse with these products though, so make sure you only use these products once or twice a week. The rest of the time use a colour protecting shampoo, such as Redken Colour Extend Magnetics to help reduce colour fade.

    With Summer holiday season fast approaching, you’ll need to be wary of the sun and chilling by the pool. Chlorine from swimming pools can strip your hair dry, leaving your hair dull and damage-prone. And when hair becomes damaged, your colour will have a harder time staying in place, meaning more opportunities for brassy tones to appear. Make sure you protect your hair before you hit the pool by wetting it down first. Your hair is like a sponge, once it’s saturated with water it will be unable to absorb too much of the chlorinated water once you dive in. Sun exposure can also affect your colour by causing it to fade faster and making brassiness more visible. Keep your hair protected by spraying in L’Oreal Professional Solar Sublime Conditioning Spray 125ml. This light, leave-in mist provides instant conditioning protection for hair during sun exposure, shielding it from drying effects, while leaving it super shiny.

    There’s a reason why blonde is deemed the most ‘high maintenance’ of all hair colours…

    How do you control your hair’s brassy tones?
