Hi Everyone! I am officially back blogging after quite a few weeks (I think, I don't even want to count the days). As I am still going through the process of transitioning to natural hair (read my posts on that here), trying out some new hair products for curly hair can be very exciting! I have of course heard of John Frieda, but I have never got around to trying their products. I was even more excited to read the ingredient lists of these (you know all by know I love doing that) to discover no mineral oil & no parabens.

Here are my first thoughts on the:

John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Conditioner: Well to start off, I do wish there was more conditioner than shampoo as I use a considerably bigger amount of conditioner than shampoo. Ingredient wise I am very please with this as it contains Behentrimonium Chloride quite far up which is a gentle detangler and ingredients like Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil further down. 

John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Shampoo: This is a sulfate shampoo containing both Sodium Laureth and Lauryl Sulfate (the latter being the harsher of the two). It also contains Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil.

John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Miraculous Recovery Intensive Masque: So excited to try a "proper" deep conditioner. I am saying that because I've only been doing DIY Deep Conditioners Lately (check them all out here). Again, I wish it contain more product as I tend to need quite a lot of product for my half afro/half relaxed hair. This also contains Behentrimonium Chloride followed by oils, silicones, vitamin E and hydrolysed silk!

♥ La Colors Purple Lipstick Review

La Colors Purple Lipstick Review

Today I just wanted to do a quick review of this LA Colors lipstick that I bought a while ago when I was out shopping with Nicole from Nicole's Beauty. I had been searching for a proper purple lipstick, that doesn't look like a plum shade for quite a while so when I found this for only £1, I thought why not?

The lipstick itself has that nice vanilla scent, a bit like MAC lipsticks. The ingredients are listed on the side, unfortunately I don't have a picture of the ingredient list but it does contain mineral oil and parabens too I am sure. However, I think that is justifiable for a £1 product.

Application? As you can see in the picture above, even though the lipstick itself if pretty pigmented, it applies quite unevenly. It has that waxy feel that sometimes doesn't want to stick to your lips.

I would definitely buy more of these lipsticks anyway because I think the result is great and it looks like any other £1+ lipstick. I believe they had loads of shades so I'll definitely go back to get more.

La Colors is available in most afro hair care stores, but they mostly sell the nail polishes only. Thr makeup is available at Beauty Base at Westfield.
