MUK SPA Argan Oil Haircare Collection

Muk. Spa Argan Haircare

MUK Spa-Argan Oil Haircare

When it comes to my hair I am so low maintenance and that includes styling & hair care products. I only wash my hair 2-3 times a week (maximum) and really like multi-use products, ones that help my hair not only look it’s best but also strengthen it so it will be stronger and healthy as the years go on.

I have been trying out 2 new products from muk.spa, they’re part of their Argan Oil Collection and we all know how incredible Argan Oil is for our hair. They use 100% pure Argan Oil in the muk.spa Argan Oil Collection sourced directly from Morocco. Argan Oil is one of the rarest oils in the world due to the small & specific geographic areas where the trees grow.

Muk hair care is an Australian professional brand founded over 10 years ago and with 34 core range products including 5 specialised Argan Oil products, this is a hair care brand which caters to the hair needs of everyone.

MUK. Spa Argan Oil Treatment

The two products I have been trying from the Muk Spa range are very similar – they are both great for getting glossy, healthy frizz-free hair. One is more of a treatment which I use weekly and the other is a shine spray which I use every time I wash my hair.

Argan Oil Shine Spray Muk Spa

Muk Spa Argan Oil Treatment

This lightweight, absorbent oil is a fantastic weekly hair treatment. It nourishes the hair and provides intense conditioning, shine and moisture so your hair looks so healthy and full of bounce. I also like how it eliminates fly-aways and smooths frizz. I have naturally curly hair so my hair can get so frizzy but this oil is fab for getting smooth sleek curls.

If you’re worried about damage from styling tools and the sun, this treatment oil is rich in essential fatty acids including Omega 9 and Omega 6. Formulated to protect hair from blow-drying, hot irons, chlorine, salt water & sun exposure so your hair is not going to look fried or dry.

  • Spa Argan Oil Repair range is 100% free of sulfates, parabens, phosphates, mineral oil
  • Contains a blend of pure Moroccan Argan Oil, linseed oil, sweet almond oil, keratin protein and aloe

It provides repair, moisture and softness for dehydrated, damaged and brittle hair with a delicious fragrance of sandalwood and wheatgrass. The perfect fusion of nature and technology, muk Spa Argan Oil Repair range is 100% free of sulfates, parabens, phosphates, mineral oil and contains no added sodium chloride.”

After shampoo and conditioning, towel dry hair, then apply a few drops to the palms of your hands. Emulsify, and then apply evenly to hair.

Muk Spa Argan Oil Repair Shine Spray

This lightweight oil is more fluid than the oil and I find the spray really convenient to use, it lightly mists my hair and never weighs my hair down or leaves it looking greasy.

Much like the Treatment Oil, It contains a blend of pure Moroccan Argan Oil, linseed oil, sweet almond oil, keratin protein and aloe vera, which are great for dull, dry hair.

It provides intense conditioning, shine and moisture to the hair, whilst smoothing frizz and eliminating flyaway hair. This Argan Oil range is also formulated to protect the hair from blow-drying, hair irons, chlorine, salt water and sun exposure. So your hair will be less brittle and frizzy.

I wouldn’t say you needed both the Treatment Oil & the Shine Spray because they are so similar.

MUK also say that this range can reduce hair drying time up to 50% but I don’t often blow dry my hair so can’t really say if this is effective.

Design.Me Haircare Products

Design.Me Power Dry Haircare

OK so there is a fun new haircare brand in town & it gets the prize for the most adorable, instagramable packaging, ever! It’s fun, simple and pastel coloured – I love it! Design.Me hail from North America and are an innovative, ahead of the curve brand who want to protect, enhance and keep your locks looking fabulous. I’ve been trying out a few products from their collection and they’ve become my goto Summer styling products. I’m pretty impressed by these pastel packaged hair treats! The range consists of 4 cult products:

Design.me Haircare Collection

  • PowerDRY.ME – a unique technology product to reduce blow dry time by up to 50%.
  • Fab.ME – the mother of all hair treatments, with four defence formula that will give you your youthful, fabulous hair back in a matter of seconds!

  • Puff.ME Light – A lighter version of Puff.ME, this super-volumising powder spray is perfect for fine to medium hair.

DESIGN.ME products give hair sheen, oomph, volume, and styling speed. Plus, these high-quality products are vegan, cruelty-free and contain not one single drop of harmful sulfates, parabens or gluten.

Design.me Puff Me Haircare

FAB.ME

I have such a quick hair care routine and the fewer products I need to use each day the better. I like to keep it simple and this Fab.Me Hair Mist is described as ‘The mother of all hair treatments’ and it really is! It has so many wonderful benefits from hydrating to detangling and even protecting against heat damage caused by styling.

You lightly mist it on to clean, damp hair and it works its magic, giving you shine, preventing split ends and leaves your hair feeling manageable and silky smooth. It is such a great multi-benefit product and one that fits right into my haircare routine. I love a product that has more than one benefit and this styling mist has a whopping 18 benefits – as well as smelling amazing and looking super cute. It ticks all the boxes for me and I have been using it a lot over the Summer to lock in moisture and reduce frizz & static (so no flyaways here!)

KEY BENEFITS
Detangles & hydrates
Colour fade protection
Frizz control
Shine and lustre

PUFF.ME Light

How adorable is this little pink and white bottle?! Well, let’s just start by saying it looks cute but the packaging was a nightmare for me – this is a powder and for some reason when I took the lid off so much of it puffed out all over the place. I wouldn’t travel with this and I would say not to put the lid back on.

This product is to give your roots volume and texture and it does that in abundance. I have to say I wasn’t 100% blown away with this and it left my hair feeling weird and the powder wasn’t translucent in my hair. When I used it I 100% had to wash my hair the next day otherwise my hair felt like straw. I think I prefer to use a standard dry shampoo to achieve the same results, this product is great in theory but needs a little more tweaking.

KEY BENEFITS
Instant volume
Odour and mess free
Made for fine to medium hair
Perfect texture for updo’s & braids

Affordable Haircare Design.Me

Powerdry.ME

Say hello to my new best friend – as most of you know in the UK we have had some of the hottest weather we’ve seen in a LONG time and the last thing anyone wants to be doing in this heat is spending ages blow drying our hair (and melting in the process). So this Powerdry.Me mist has halved the time It takes me to dry my hair. This mist is wonderful if like me you have thick, unruly hair, it speeds up drying times by up to 50% and it also leaves your hair sleek, protects from damaging heat and UV. So it’s the ideal product to add to your hair care routine this Summer. I am singing its praises and have been recommending it to anyone that will listen.

KEY BENEFITS
Decreases your blowdrying time by 50%!
Frizz control
Heat and UV Protection
Smooth & conditions hair

Design.Me Styling Products

The Design.ME hair styling range is now available in Sally Beauty stores nationwide and online at www.sallybeauty.co.uk

Superdrug Raspberry & Vanilla Shower & Bath Soak 

I can’t get enough of these Superdrug own brand shower gels. They have the nicest selection of scents. I picked up this Raspberry & Vanilla one and also my favourite Salted Caramel one too. They always seem to be on offer so I stock up and they last ages. This one is lovely and fruity with a touch of sweetness. This bath soak leaves my skin soft and makes my whole bathroom smell so good. Best of all is the fact they’re Vegan and cruelty-free, not to mention a complete bargain. So if you’re looking for a new shower gel (you can use them as bath soak too), I highly recommend this range. I really want to try the Rhubarb and Custard one but it is always sold out in my local Superdrug.

Garnier Ultimate Blends Shampoo – The Sleek Restorer with Coconut Oil & Cocoa Butter

This is great if you find most shampoos weigh your hair down, or you find it difficult to wash it out fully. The consistency of this shampoo is like a lightweight gel, it is so easy to work through your hair and very quick to rinse out. It leaves hair feeling hydrated, looking smooth and glossy with no trace of product buildup. I have naturally wavy hair that can get super frizzy but this shampoo helps to keep it manageable and frizz-free. I really want to try the conditioner too. Oh and this smells like pure Summer in a bottle, it is gorgeous.

Compagnie de Provence Karite Liquid Marseille Soap

In my house, I enjoy having products in lovely packaging, especially items that are on display all the time like handwash. When I saw this one in a cute homeware shop in St Ives I had to get it. The soap is great & doesn’t leave my hands dry at all. It is enriched with nourishing Shea Butter which is rich in vitamins A, D, E and F.

The bottle is ceramic so when it runs out I will refill it and keep using it. I love the bold typeface used on the bottle and think the cream and black make it look very modern and not too in your face. It was £18.50 so a bit of a splurge but it is 500ml and going to last a long time, also as I said I will reuse the bottle so that makes it worthwhile.

Superdrug Vitamin E Gentle Oatmeal Exfoliator 

I have tried almost all of the Superdrug own brand skincare collections and have never been disappointed. They’re affordable, vegan and have really good ingredients. I bought this Oatmeal Exfoliator from the Vitamin E range on a whim and I have to say I love it. It isn’t abrasive but the oatmeal scrubbies are enough so they exfoliate away the dead skin without leaving skin sore. I often apply it then leave it on my skin like a facemask for a couple of minutes before massaging it over my skin then washing it off with a damp warm cloth. It reminds me of the LUSH Oatifix face mask. For under £3 this is a great exfoliator to have in your routine.

Enriched with naturally sourced Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that will help to shield your skin against environmental damage and premature skin ageing by combating the harmful effects of free radicals, The indulgent formula also contains a skin conditioning multivitamin complex comprising of vitamins A,B ,F and H, which, combined with horse chestnut extract, helps to care for dry skin.

SheaMoisture 10-in-1 Multi-Benefit Hair Masque 

I use this hair mask once a week and I try to leave it on my hair as long as possible (2-3 hours). It is a wonderful mask with so many benefits – well 10 to be exact and they are

  • Age-defying
  • Nourishing
  • Anti-stress
  • Revive body
  • Colour Protecting
  • Shine
  • Hydrating
  • Strengthening
  • Manageability
  • Softening

This is the ideal mask to add to your pamper routine, it gives your hair such a deep treatment. Once I rinse this out my hair instantly feels silky smooth and healthy. It’s a great masque if you have dry, dull hair because this will bring back the shine.

It contains some fab hair loving ingredients & the whole SuperFruit Complex range is pretty fantastic. I have tried both the shampoo & conditioner and they’re well worth investing in it is great for hydrating and nourishing dry, damaged hair.

  • Superfruit–a blend of red raspberry, ketones, goji, acai and guava extracts rich in anti-aging antioxidants
  • Marula oil–contains natural plant peptides that help support hair’s elasticity
  • Biotin–nourishes individual strands for thicker, stronger hair
  • Shea butter–deeply moisturises while conditioning hair and scalp

FeelUnique #iamready

I really like those Popband hair ties as they don’t leave that dreaded dent / kink in your hair and their super gentle so these won’t snap or pull at your luscious locks. A hand cream is a must have for me too. I get terribly dry hands so I’m counting on this luxurious NUXE one to keep my hands soft and nourished.

The other Beauty On The Go Kit has all your travel essentials for surviving a flight and that kit is just as handy as this one. Seen as I am not jetting off anywhere exotic this Summer this Everyday Essentials Kit is perfect for my day to day needs. I’m going to pop in a small can of dry shampoo and a hand sanitiser too, just to tailor my kit to specific needs but apart from that I think it has a well rounded selection of beauty tools and products which I reach for on a daily basis.

Feelunique Beauty On The Go Kit
