COCO Hair Full Review and Giveaway!

Hey folks so I'm really excited to be doing my first ever giveaway on April Lily Rose! Yay! In my last blog post I talked about the COCO Hair Treatment, which I've been enjoying as part of my deep conditioning haircare routine.

There are three bottles of COCO Hair (100ml) up for grabs - read on to find out how to enter. COCO Hair A [...]
Three natural products for soft hair

3 Natural Products for Soft Bouncy Hair

Since getting blonde balayage last month after a four-year break from highlighting my hair, it's all come flooding back to me now how much maintenance is involved! Especially if you have your hair lightened, you'll understand the battle with keeping your locks looking and feeling soft and healthy. As my hair is also fine and quite thin, it is less tolerant to colouring and can easily become brittle. This is my tried and tested method of preventing hair from becoming dry and damaged as a result of bleach colour-treatment using only 3 natural products. Step 1: Hair Oil This is something [...]

Lani Tropical Hair & Body Treatments

Beach Vibes: Lani Tropical Hair and Body

These long summer days have been lovely especially up here in the Lakes, which has been a nice change from previous wash-out summers! And with the higher temperatures, hours spent outside in the sun and recent re-ignited love affair with my hair curling wand (bad I know but I wanted boys to think I was a mermaid), my hair has taken a bit of a beating. While I wouldn't say it's terribly sun damaged, I have noticed my hair has become quite dry with a lot of split ends. I don't use heat styling tools very frequently (maybe once or [...]

Natural Hair Brushes

Haircare: Wooden Hair Brushes

in Hair
A natural hair brush or comb is an absolute staple purchase if you want to easily improve hair and scalp health, with minimum effort. Any hair length, thin, or thick will benefit from brushing with a natural wooden pin or boar bristle hair brush. The Benefits Since going as natural as possible and ditching the chemicals, I found the haircare part a little more difficult to adjust. First, I couldn't stop using my beloved hair mousse for my super fine baby hair; second, I couldn't imagine not using my large synthetic barrel hairbrush to blow-dry my hair into a respectable [...]
Faith In Nature Ginkgo Range

Faith In Nature Ginkgo Review

So last week I ran out of my Holland & Barrett Dr. Organics shampoo and conditioner I had been trying out, and decided to purchase Faith In Nature Ginkgo shampoo and conditioner. I had seen this brand before in a local independent health food shop and after reading good reviews about the product online, I decided to buy. The Good From the first wash, I have fallen in love with this shampoo and conditioner. I can't get over how super soft it leaves my hair! I'm not one to have much patience to let my hair sit in conditioner for [...]
Camomile Tea Hair Rinse

Natural Hair Highlighter: Camomile

This is probably one of the topics within natural beauty that has interested me the most since I first started using only natural and organic products - is it really possible to lift and highlight dark blonde hair without chemicals? After doing some research and a bit of experimenting, I have discovered that camomile is the most effective natural lightener so far that I have tried on my hair. DIY Camomile Hair Tea Rinse This is so simple, but so effective, all you need is a pack of camomile tea bags and hot water. Recipe 2 camomile teabags or 1 [...]
