Cut and Colour

So, today, while I am off away in London I am getting my hair done, now I absolutely LOVE and ADORE having my hair cut and coloured, I know some people can't stand it but my hairdresser is amazing and I just love it. I'm not sure exactly what I'll come back - my colour changes pretty much every time I do it, but I normally start off having foils for my blonde highlights then an all over colour to make my natural brown a bit richer. I then have to sit under the crazy alien drying machine, have toner put on and the dye washed out, then it's the cut.

Chris is my hairdresser at Toni and Guy and he has been cutting my hair since I was 16 (I think), he knows my hair better than I know my hair, he hacks away at it to make nicely thinned and smooth, I end up with a pile of hair around my feet that needs to be swept up multiple times, and my head feels about 2 tonnes lighter. I have yet to find another hairdresser that understand my hair, and for now I will continue to head back home to London to have him work his magic.


However, this luxury treatment doesn't come cheap, I am lucky enough that my Mum always helps me pay for my hair (she knows how much it needs a good cut, Sunday evenings spent blow-drying my hair must be a pretty prominent memory for her), but I never want to get it coloured more than (and at the most) twice a year. Therefore, I've recently bought Aussie Colour Mate Shampoo to try out when I have my new colour - I've heard such good things about the Aussie brand that I wanted to give it a go. I will let you know how I find it!

Do you us Aussie products? What do you think of them?

I'm not really a fan of sitting in hairdressers staring at myself in a mirror for an hour! I love it when my hair is washed and pampered though!

I'm a big fan of Aussie products, such good quality for only a bit more than the basic price.

My one absolute diva luxury if I was really famous/rich would be to have my hair done professionally all the time. I LOVE having my hair washed, pampered and cut.

I've used Aussie for years. Their intensive conditioner thing (I have no idea what they're actually called) is all that can stop the ends of my hair from snapping as soon as I put a comb through it.
