Superdrug Pick & Mix Rose Gold Hair Dye Review 


Rose gold and pastel colours is a trend that’s here to stay and Superdrug has taken this on board to create a new range of hair products. The Pick & Mix features semi-permanent and permanent dyes as well as hair chalk sprays in a range of fabulous colours. 

As part of a small blog squad team for Superdrug I was kindly sent the permanent Rose Gold hair dye to try out. The box colour is a beautiful ‘candy floss’ style pink which I feel if you have blonde hair then you will be able to achieve this. I had brown hair with dark blonde highlights so I didn’t really expect the colour to take to my hair and to my surprise I was left with a nice darker pink colour!

I didn’t read the box properly (rookie mistake) so I didn’t read that the dye contains hydrogen peroxide so some of my brown roots also went a pinky colour but I honestly didn’t mind this. I only used one box so if you have brown hair you can still achieve a pink look but it may take a couple of boxes to completely cover your hair.

I like this dye and I would recommend trying the range if you fancy a new hair colour, however, I did find in comparison to some other brands that this one did have a strong scent but that could have been the bleach!

A day after dying my hair it went a lighter peachy colour which was lovely and actually inspired me to try the Copper Gold colour from the collection. I’ll do another blog post for that dye but again it had peroxide in it and now my brown roots are all gone!

Unfortunately I can’t remember the exact price but it was around £3.50 and as usual with Superdrug it is 100% cruelty free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Asda Dry Shampoo Review


Dry shampoo has became incredibly popular in recent years with a wide range of brands and scents to choose from. As far as I’m aware Batiste is the most popular, but it can be quite costly depending on how many cans you go through. I recently picked up a dry shampoo from Asda in Cherry Blossom, there’s others to choose from as well such as Tropical.

You might be thinking not an own brand that can’t be good but it is actually quite a nice product and comes with a tiny price tag of £1 for a 200ml! Batiste generally costs from £2.99 for the 200ml bottle.

I don’t tend to use dry shampoo very often but have tried various brands such as Superdrug, Tesco and Lee Stafford. Its always nice to have a back up can for those emergency situations because lets be honest who likes the greasy look.  

More than anything I chose this Cherry Blossom spray for its scent and I have to say it smells incredible and did the job well. Whilst the packaging is very cheap looking its all about the quality and this shampoo leaves hair looking fresh and I found mine felt quite soft after use.

It’s cruelty free and suitable for Vegetarians, im not 100% sure if its Vegan friendly so I don’t want to say that it is if it isn’t.  

Have you tried any own brand dry shampoos?

Superdrug Coconut Water & Coconut Oil Hair Masque


Having focused on make up posts for a while I thought I’d mix things up a little and talk about this wonderful hair masque by Superdrug. I absolutely love hair masks/masques and own various ones by Tresemme and Herbal Essences. As you know haircare comes at a cost and today’s masque comes with an affordable price tag.

The Coconut Water & Coconut Oil Masque or known on the website as “Hydrate & Shine Conditioning Masque with Coconut Water” smells amazing! The Pina Colada scent is enticing enough to buy it and it works wonders on your hair.

Superdrug Coconut Water Hair Masque

This particular own brand product is part of the more premium range in Superdrug in comparison to some of their basic/essential products. There is also has the additional shampoo and conditioner to match this range but I haven’t tried these just yet.

The masque claims to hydrate the hair and leave it shiny, like any other masque you leave it on for around 2 minutes, if you have the time you can also leave it on for 10 minutes for a more intense conditioning treatment.

The product itself is not a thick consistency and works it’s way through the hair really easily with a small application going a long way.

Afterwards my hair smelt amazing and felt really soft, I cant really comment on the shine effect as I didn’t notice a massive difference but perhaps teaming it with the shampoo would have a better effect.

The Benefits:

  • £2.65 on offer (usually £3.99)
  • Cruelty Free
  • Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
  • Smells Amazing
  • Soft, Healthy Looking Hair  
  • 200ml size (lasts 12 months from opening)

Mens Hairstyles: What Not to Do


When it comes to styling your hair not everybody gets it right, it could be argued men especially need a helping hand. Within the media there has been some shocking decisions made by male celebrities, who can forget Beckham’s awful cornrows? and more recently Robert Pattinson (Twilight) had us all thinking what the hell when he presented his wacky shaved do.

Mini Hair Care Haul


Hair Care HaulAfter visiting Superdrug last week I managed to pick up some great hair care products for really low prices!

Currently there is a ‘Better than 1/2 price’ deal on select TRESemme products and I managed to pick up my 2 items at £2.97 each (Slightly cheaper in Asda), and as everybody may know, the products always smell amazing. 

The first item that caught my eye was the TRESemme Keratin Smooth (Deep Treatment Masque): Held in a 300ml tub the product is quite large so will last for a while, it offers to ‘instantly replenish each strand’ for smoother and straighter hair. To use the masque it recommends using the Keratin Smooth shampoo first (I didn’t buy this) and applying the masque afterwards for 3-5 minutes concentrating on the mid-length to the ends of your hair.  

I also picked up TRESemme’s Platinum Strength Deep Conditioning Treatment: I have used this twice now and already love the product, it goes on like your average conditioner with a wait time of 2-3 minutes, again focusing on the mid-length to the ends of your hair. It claims to reverse up to 2 years of hair damage and after using it I always find my hair to be really soft with less breakages than usual.  Both this and the mask usually retail at £5.99 each but I believe I did see them on offer in Asda for £2.59 so slightly cheaper than Superdrug.

Vo5 Conditioner

I came across these Vo5 conditioners in the ‘clearance’ aisle at 50p each, I’m not entirely sure why they were in this section as they aren’t actually damaged in anyway which is usually the case for product’s in that aisle. If like me you always seem to run out of conditioner first then it’s a great product/price to stock up on.

I opted for ‘Give Me Moisture’ which is perfect against heat defence and offers balanced moisture for dry hair, ‘Nourish My Shine’ also protects against heat defence and adds shine to damaged hair. The bottles are the small 200ml so are easily stored or practical for travel uses. Vo5 products always smell great as well and I believe the original price is around £1.99 so a small saving has been made, if you’re a student like me then every penny counts!
