The Perfect Temporary Grey Roots Fix with The Root Fix

Hi lovelies, 

It's been a while! I'm totally sorry but as usual life.. and mega wedmin... has been getting the best of me. All the same, I wanted to jump onto the blog as I was sent a really cool hair product that has solved a real dilemma I was having about my wedding hair in December. 

To walk down the Aisle with grey hairs or not to walk down the aisle with grey hairs? Ah such a dilemma!

In the last few years I've been seeing more and more of these pesky little white hair sprouting up, and in truth, I've sort of grown to love them. Yet, I also would like my hair to look #flawless on my wedding day, and the greys do seem to stand out like mad in photos in particular. I intend to be in ALOT of photos on my wedding day. haha

I dabbled with the idea of getting them dyed professionally but I didn't like the OOT-ness of it all.. I've got maybe 10 max and it seemed a bit too much effort. A home dye kit? possibly, even henna? a natural alternative but still, so permanent. 

So, when YoungHair asked to send me The Root Fix I jumped at the chance to try their temporary root cover. 

They have three colours to choose from: black, light brown and dark brown... naturally I chose the latter.  I applied the temporary colour just like you would do dry hair shampoo and it leaves a similar texture as dry hair shampoo too. 

I have to say that I didn't really know quite what to expect. But once I'd sprayed the few white whisps of hair I did have I couldn't believe how simple and easy it was to temporarily cover the greys. The dark brown Root Fix colour matched my hair colour seamlessly. 

What I also liked about it was that I was in control of how much coverage I wanted. A few sprays made them less noticeable but still present. And I liked that. My greys are a part of me, a part of who I am right now and, as much as I want to look and feel great on my wedding day, I also want to look and feel like me. 

For me The Root Fix by YoungHair is the perfect non-permanent grey cover-up that allows me to take control of how I want to look on my Wedding day without changing who I really am... greys and all! 

I'll most definitely be using it too!

I took on the Love Your Mouth Challenge with GSK

Hi beauts,

So,  was contacted by GSK a little while back about their latest campaign to get us all to focus on our oral health. Not a particularly sexy topic I know but it really intrigued me, what with all the hype that goes on with teeth bleaching and whitening. I swear every other vlog or post is about how to get brilliantly white 'Hollywood' teeth. Yet whilst everyone is trying to make their smiles look stunning but aren't really focusing on what they should be... looking after the health of their teeth.

My teeth are naturally very white. They always have been and I guess I'm pretty lucky for that. So I've never had to or wanted to think about buying teeth whitening kits. However, with white teeth often comes weak teeth as my enamel isn't as strong...that, pairing with an embarrassingly sweet tooth has meant that I've had more fillings than hot dinners and had to have a root canal at Uni. Not a pleasurable experience I must say! 

So I do try to think about the health of my teeth and I think it is important that we all take some time to look after them.. they're the only set we've got! This is where the Love Your Mouth Challenge comes in. Firstly I answered their short Mouth Check survey which then used the answers I've given to recommend the right products for my mouth. 

My answers recommended I use Sensodyne ProNamel toothpaste and mouthwash so when they were sent to me in the post I started using them straight away. I've been using both for the past three weeks now and I'm pleased to be focusing more on my oral health.

The toothpaste is different from Colgate, my usual brand but I quite like the taste, it's nice to have a change. Hubby on the other hand isn't too keen on it and prefers the minty taste of Colgate - I think it depends on your preference! I like the mouthwash the most as its tinglingly refreshing but doesn't start to burn your mouth after 10 seconds like many if tried.

I think it's good to be using the right type of oral health products for my mouth and..... for my sugar-filled diet!
