Review: LUSH Caca Rouge, Henna Hair Colour

Hi guys, gals, and non-binary pals!

I’ve been wanting to look after my hair more, recently, and one of the ways that I’ve chosen to do that is to stop using permanent hair dye, because I know that the build up of all of the boxed dyes was really doing a number on my hair. For the last three months, I’ve not touched my hair, except to try and lift some of the dye off of it with a hair dye remover. Originally my plan was to lighten it as much as I could to try and get it back to the original colour but I’ve since been swayed otherwise and have decided to keep trying to dye my hair a copper tone, because I think that’s the colour that I like best against my skin. I was going into LUSH for a present and while I was there, I decided to pick up one of their henna dyes to try and dye my hair with. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever used and I really wanted to talk about it as an alternative to traditional hair dyes! I hope that you enjoy!

Favourite Hair Care Tips!

Hey guys!

Today I want to talk about my favourite hair care tips! I’m pretty lazy about looking after my hair, I don’t do anything too special with it and that’s probably why I don’t tend to talk about it much on my blog. However, a few months ago, I was blessed with oodles of hair care products and knowledge and I wanted to share some of that with you!

Hair-O-Scope? A Horoscope for your hair?

A ‘do that’s on point can make the difference between a good or bad day

Even though I own a plethora of wigs, I do dye my hair fairly frequently. I also really love quizzes and finding things that suit me or suit my personality (yeah, I’m one of those people who post a lot of quizzes on Facebook). A brand that combines those two loves is Madison Reed. I recently discovered this brand and I thought that it was worth talking about on my blog because I thought that some of you would get a kick out of this.

Madison Reed have a quiz on their website that helps you find the perfect shade for the hair that you are trying to achieve. You can take the quiz here! Not only do they have a quiz to find the perfect shade but they also have something called a Hair-O-Scope. A horoscope for your hair! I don’t read into horoscopes very much but I like those little tumblr posts that show which character you are from a series or whatever, based on your horoscope so I was pretty interested to see what my Hair-O-Scope was!

Scorpio

Here is my Hair-O-Scope!

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Mysterious and misunderstood, you’re drawn to uncover the hidden meaning in everything. You have a natural power and intensity that people find intriguing. Underneath it all, we know you’re secretly a sensitive Scorpio. 

Invite the world in by brightening up your hair color, a little or a lot. You’ll still have people wondering about you as you go about your day looking ravishing. On days when you feel more reserved, tie hair into a loose braid and pair with that trademark enigmatic smile.

I love this! I think it is so cute and a great way to get some ideas if you’re stuck in a bit of a hair-rut. If you want to read your Hair-O-Scope, you can find it here!

Madison Reed is a really cool company because you can purchase a single box of your perfect shade or you can have boxes delivered to you every time you want to dye your hair and you can set how soon you’ll need your new box of hair dye. And you can even ask for more dye if you have longer hair and you don’t have to pay double!

I’d encourage all of you to check them out, even if you’re just on the website to check out your Hair-O-Scope or to see what your perfect shade is.

I hope that you are all having a wonderful day!

Cinderella Week: Hair Tutorial!

*WARNING: PICTURE HEAVY*

For the hair part of Cinderella week, I wanted to do my version (fringe version) of one of the looks in the new movie because to me, they’re more interesting than a bun and pin curls, like in the 50s Disney version. My hair cut would have probably suited the 50s version better haha, but I can do what I want.

So, here is what I based my look on:

cinderella-lily-james-580x487

There’s a lot more volume in the braided headband than what I chose to do. I was going to class right after I did this look so I didn’t want it to be too crazy, my teachers already think I’m pretty weird because I wear wigs all the time!

Here’s what I did:

IMG_0845                                    IMG_0850

In my version, I did a much cleaner rope braid headband, Ella’s is more textured and full. I’ve never rope braided before so it was pretty interesting! So, now, I’m going to teach you how to achieve this hair style.

1. Split your hair down the middle, horizontally, then split those sections in half and bring the front half together with a hair tie.

IMG_0836                                   IMG_0837

I was laughing at myself taking these pictures because it looked like I had a strange beard.

2. Spilt the untied sections into two pieces and twist them both in the same direction. Then twist those two twists together in the oposite direction that you twisted the hair. So, if you twisted towards your face, put the piece closest to your face over the other piece and continue.

3. When your rope braid reaches the top of your ear, tie it (optional) and pin it behind your ear. Do this to both sides.

IMG_0840                                 IMG_0841

I look like some elvish goat with this hair still tied by my chin haha.

4. Separate your beard haha. you could tease these sections a bit to give them more volume or just twist the ends like you’re quiffing your fringe and pin behind the braids, covering your pins. Finish it off with some hair spray.

And that’s it! Its pretty simple, its just time consuming! From here you could curl your hair and add some glitter but I didn’t have time to curl it all and I liked how my natural waves looked kind of magical~

I’m pretty happy with how this turned out. It probably would have looked better had I pinned back my fringe. I may recreate this at some point when my fringe is a little bit longer.

It’s not a real blog post without some silly selfies haha

IMG_0848                                      IMG_0849

If you recreate this look, I’d love to see it! If you’ve recreated other Cinderella hair, feel free to link me to it, I’d love to see it and try it out. I love braiding my hair now, I just think its so fun and easy.

I hope that you’re enjoying Cinderella Week! I’m looking forward to sharing more of my work with you!
