Last week I featured a friendly, feminine beauty budget find from Lollia to moisturize your skin! This week I’ll feature a sweet little duo to cleanse hair and condition your hair that’s sure to please you packaging wise, cute wise, and price wise!
Lollia holds my heart when it comes to ultra cute, girlishly chic bits and bobs for body and hair care. Today I thought I’d bring you a review of Lollia Clover Blossom Shampoo and Lollia Bee Balm Conditioner in the scent Mint Julep.
These sweet petite treats are available from Lollia for $8 USD each and come housed in small little toothpaste style tubes that are practical yet have that hint of designer charm for displaying in your wash room or on top of your vanity.
Lollia Clover Blossom Shampoo is formulated with purifying clover blossom to protect tresses while wheat proteins build strength. This shampoo is light enough for daily use on all hair types without weighting it down! It’s lightly perfumed with Mint Julep which feels cooling and soothing on the scalp and scents your hair with a delicious blend of vanilla bean, shredded coconut, star anise, and crushed mint.
Lollia Clover Blossom Conditioner adds shine and flirt to hair. Keep hair calm and moisturized with milk and wheat and the cool scent of Mint Julep!
Both the shampoo and conditioner are very light formula so if your hair is color treated, dry, oily, or silicon free, like my own, you’ll be able to safely use this without weighting hair down or stripping color.
The scent is delicious and it lingers quite nicely in your hair so you’ll be smelling minty fresh all day long. Mint for your hair possibly sounds weird but the other notes of vanilla and coconut morph the mint into a gorgeous blend that’s sure to please.
Since these cute little treats are such a budget friendly price they are perfect for gift giving, stashing in your guest room, or most important, traveling with!
The Muse absolutely adores Lush Jasmine and Henna Fluff Eaze and she welcomed it with open arms into the Lush haircare family however with it’s release the Muse had to bid farewell to her favorite hair treatment, The Strokes.
But it’s back!
Lush has introduced The Strokes back into the Retro Lush Catalog and the Muse is all about stocking up on a few and stashing them in her fridge! The Strokes tames my curls and adds tons of shine and body! It smells fresh and citrus like and leaves my hair scented as such for days and days and days after using!
To use The Strokes simply slap a heaping amount on dry hair and slip on a shower cap or wrap your head in a towel. The Muse normally runs a towel under extremely hot water, rings it out, and wraps around her with the treatment on. I leave it on for about an hour although they suggest 20 minutes or so. After the hour is up I rinse off and shampoo (no conditioner required) and I’m left with smooth, soft locks that remain as such for at least a month!
Best hair treatment evers!
The Muse adores The Strokes and is happy for it’s return! Remember kids Lush Hair Treatments only last 3-4 months so use them in that time or they’ll go bad!
Granted it’s not like she minds in the least to have hair comparable to Einstien but she’s come to the conclusion that old Albert could work this look where as the Muse on the other hand can not.
In my quest for all things cheap lately (you know we haz to be cheap with the economy and such) I discovered Avon Advanced Techniques Anti-Frizz Capsules aka weird little capsules that look like the latest street drug.
Although a majority of the time nothing touches my hair outside of Lush haircare and a few select e-tailer brand shampoos and conditioners I decided to shrug off my snotty little nature and try out Avon Advanced Techniques Anti-Frizz Capsules. Honestly, anything that promises to tame the frizz is always a welcome addition to my haircare regime. My hair is long, it’s wavy, it’s curly, and without proper care it does look quite like I stuck my hand into the nearest socket.
Surprisingly these little capsules do exactly what they promise which is tame the evil frizz. The price is one of the key selling points as for $2.99 USD it’s quite a nice steal. You’ll get 18 capsules which you’ll either use one or two of or more if you’re really having a frizzy kinda day. I used one and my hair was nice and soft afterward, frizz-free, shiny, and didn’t feel weighted down. My main concern when using new haircare is how it’ll weight my hair down. My hair is currently silicon free thanks to Lush so I take extra care when using anything else as once I reintroduce silicons or other additives into my hair it starts to misbehave. I was pleasantly surprised that merely one capsule which contains 3, 4 drops of serum at the most banished my frizzes and made my hair nice and soft.
If you’re looking for something cheap that won’t weight your hair down and will zap your frizzes I highly suggest checking this out. Not a bad deal on the price plus it delivers on the promise of frizz-free hair! I’m on the bandwagon for a re-purchase once I run out!
The little things totally get the Muse raved up! Today when she seen Got 2B Cosmic Shimmering Serum a hint of excitement filled the air.
I normally don’t do hair product posts but I could not resist something that had Cosmic and Shimmering in the title! For shame you know the Muse loves her sparkly, shimmery bits and bobs!
So what is it?
A shimmering hair serum to tame frizz and wild curls while adding a touch of shimmering silver to tresses! Um hello Holiday hair beauty budget? Here we come! I’m totally bummed because when I took a picture with this in my hair it sadly does not show up well but rest assured the Muse took swatchies for you! Excited?
The serum is infused with shimmering mic minerals to provide a hint of shimmer to your hair while taming frizz and holding hair in place! It smells sweet and melon like too so it’ll lend a bit of fragrance to your hair as well! No worries it won’t create a dipped in glitter effect out of your hair, it simply gives a tiny bit of silver sparkle that’s subtle and quite lovely to finish up your holiday look! Honestly, I was wishing they’d make this in gold too!
As far as this Muse is concerned Got 2B Cosmic Shimmering Serum is budget friendly at a $4.99 USD price tag and totally Muse Approved for purchase for it (and the awesome shimmers!)!
I loved this one!
Tames the crazy of my curls, smells sweet, plus gives shimmer? Honestly what’s not to like here?
I don’t know if I’d necessarily call my hair curly but it’s definately wavy and long with bouts of dryness and frizzies that keeps me on my toes to tame!
I normally like tugging it into a bun and slapping a hairband on to keep it nice and neat especially when I’m working! However, during the days that I have it down it’s difficult to tame it all and keep it from flying around my head like a runaway train!
In comes my very favorite shampoo, Lush Curly Wurly. A review for Lush Curly Wurly is long overdo so here’s your loving Muse finally bringing you my opinion on Lush’s Curly Wurly Shampoo!
Curly Wurly is an extremely thick shampoo which is made from various fresh ingredients minus preservatives. Even though the formula is lacking preservatives, the shampoo, in fact manages to weigh down hair considerably well. With hair that’s curly and or wavy you need the extra weigh of a good, thick shampoo to tame your hair and weigh it down which keeps it from frizzing up and out.
Although the formula does a successful job of weighing my hair down and keeping it both manageable and beautiful I do have to be careful how often I use this as it causes a bit of buildup and oiliness when used often.
The formula is a mix of chunky coconut and a base of avocado. The mix of the two fruits and additional oils creates a rather thick paste that smells like fresh coconuts and vanilla. Although the formula has huge shreds of coconut these wash out easily after dunking under your shower for a rinse.
The results of the product are outstanding especially if your hair is thick and dry. I’ve been using this for over 7 months and my hair is considerably more managable, less frizzy, and my curls are more defined.
At $19.50 USD it’s not the cheapest shampoo option around however since it suds up and foams up so well it’ll easy take you 3-4 months to get through an entire pot.
Some key points of the product is the fact that it creates amazingly gorgeous curls while removing frizz and dryness plus giving shine and definition to your hair. It contains no silicons which a plus for keeping your hair beautiful.
After several months of use my hair is less frizzy, softer without the dryness I normally experience, and just overall looks much better.
This is a conditioning shampoo so following up with conditioner is completely optional. Although my hair is very long and very wavy I successfully washed with Curly Wurly and didn’t have a problem with tangles after using without conditioner.
All in all I love this! It gets a hearty Muse Approval for purchase! The Muse loves Lush Curly Wurly and recommends giving it a try!
If you’re not wanting to commit to a full pot might I suggest heading to your local store and asking for a small sample to test out for yourself!
