Have the magical hair scientists finally found a way to rid thirsty, dry damaged hair? Probably not but I'm going to give this a go regardless.

In the UK I make the effort to get my hair cut every 6 weeks. Since being away that hasn't happened. If I am honest after seeing some of the haircuts other backpackers received I didn't trust the Asian hairdressers. 

In the past I have heard wonderful reviews about Moroccan Oil... It makes your hair grow... It makes it healthier... Thicker... Stronger. All the things a girl wants to hear when she is thinking about buying a new hair products. Surely all of these hair dreams can't all be contained in a $50 bottle of hair oil? I haven't been using is long enough to either agree or disagree. 

However I can tell you the difference I haven't noticed from as little as two weeks of using Moroccan Oil.

Firstly, the smell. It's not the scent you'd expect from a hair oil. I expected the typical coconut scent that you receive with most hair oils. I can't explain the smell accept it is unusual and recognisable of Moroccan oil. It almost smells of sandalwood. It is a strong very distinctive smell, I would almost say it is a little masculine.

Secondly the oil. The instructions state to use the product on either wet or dry hair. I have been using it every day on my hair. The consistency is the same as any other hair oil, however you can feel on your fingers that it is rich in moisture and it really soaks into your hair. 

After a few weeks of use I do feel like my hair is a more hydrated and slightly healthier, but like a lot of treatments, only time will tell the end result. I am going to continue using Moroccan Oil in the hope that all my hair dreams and goals do come true.

LUSH REVIEW // Jason and the Argan Oil Shampoo Bar //

Jason and The Argan Oil Shampoo Bar

I know I have been very slack with my lack of posting. The truth is I have been having the time of my life back packing across Asia. Indonesia, and Australia, wearing the same clothes everyday, week in, week out. No laptop and a broken phone. We have now settled in a small town called Bowen, QLD for a few months whilst we undergo our 88 days farm work to get our second year Visa for Australia. I would have never imagined myself as a Pepper Farmer, but that is what I am now.
This review is well overdue, I did originally write this in January in Cambodia, however the silly blogger app deleted it and I haven't had the opportunity to re-write it.
a shampoo bar really is such a great idea, the perfectly formed, concentrated, vegan, environmentally friendly, water-free bar it's takes up little room and lasted me nearly 5 months- lets be honest, it is a bit of a game changer. First off, the scent! This was my first and foremost favourite part of the shampoo bar. Being from the Rose Jam family, this luxurious scent lasted days in my hair. The ba
I was lucky enough to receive a few goodies from the lovely girlies at LUSH Bristol before I left for my travels. Jason and the Argan oil shampoo bar was one of them! Havin
gr itself is ideal for those with lighter hair tones and jam packed with goodness, (Argan oil being one of the key ingredients) it left my hair feeling soft and fresh. I can't recommend this product enough, especially for anyone that is thinking of going away. No annoying heavy plastic bottles to lug around and throw away, no risk of the dreaded bag explosions and leaking. I do only have one negative thing to say about the Bar, when it was coming to an end, it did begin to crumble a lot. ... if only they had a Rose Jam scented conditioner!
