Fudge Paintbox Rainbow Colours

When my hair was bright red (which it was for six years, until February this year), inbtween salon visits I would top up the colour with Fudge Paintbox Hot Chilli. Bizarrely, a few weeks after I stripped the red from my hair, Fudge launched their newly revamped Paintbox range of semi-permanent colours - and Hot Chilli was gone! Fate, coincidence, fortuitous timing -whatever it was, it made me smile - I was clearly meant to change my colour, … [Read more...]

Swell Ultimate Volume Haircare

I've always had 'big' hair. Because it's curly, it sort of grows out the way and not down the way. But, after years of bleaching and colouring, straightening, and well, just generally mistreating it, my hair can be a bit fine, a bit 'breaky' and a bit lacking in volume in the right places. I was sent the full range of this Swell Ultimate Volume hair care to try - and their latest product, a Curl and Bounce Tonic (£25) and I've pretty much fallen … [Read more...]
