Advance Techniques Moroccan Argan Oil

After years of home coloring my hair and daily straightening my hair is very dry at the ends to say the least, I don't get my hair cut that often either which probably just adds to the bad condition of hair. Everyone raves about the Original Moroccan oil  but at the heavy price of £14 for a 25 ml bottle I thought I would give it a miss specially because I have always thought that an oil would make my hair really greasy. Although recently my mum had got the Advance Techniques Moroccan Argan Oil from her friend who does Avon and she had been using it after every hair wash and her hair just looked so healthy and shiny so I decided to give it ago.

After washing my hair i towel dry it give it a quick brush through and then apply two pumps of the oil into the palm of my hand. I apply the oil to the ends of my hair going about a third up the length, if I have recently colored my hair I use an extra pump as my hair tends to be extra dry after home coloring, 

Since I have been using the oil i have found that my hair feels so much thicker and healthier, the ends of my hair has started to go a bit straw like and i could even see the split ends and damage i had done to it. Now my hair looks beautiful and shiny all the thick and has a lot more life and bounce to it!

For the small price of £5.50 for a 30 ml bottle
This product is a must have for me now!

This oil is currently on sale down from £5.50 to £2.99!

Top 5 lipsticks under £10

  Max Factor Color Elixir Lipstick
  PINK BRANDY #825 £7.99
The pink brandy shade is perfect for everyday use, i pretty much wear this shade all the time as it will go with any makeup look i'm going for that day as well as whatever i am wearing. Its a very soft buttery lipstick very easy to apply and you can build it up so well to give you even more coverage.

 Maybelline Color Sensational
 HOLLYWOOD RED #540 £6.99
The Hollywood red is my holly grail of every day red lipsticks, i find that you really have to be a bit careful when wearing red lipstick in the day depending on what you are doing, this shade is perfect for any occasion and i even tend to wear it to work quite often. It gives you the elegant classy look of a red lip without looking like your about to go on a night out. This is the perfect red lip to take you from day to night. Although other shades from this range have left my lips very dry for some reason this lipstick is a lot more moisturising.

Seventeen Stay Pout Lipstick
Kiss Me Quick £4.49
I'm not really a massive fan of pink lipsticks although this one is really easy to wear especially in the sun, its not to over powering. this lipstick is lovely with a very basic makeup look with a little highlighter. Pink lipsticks tend not to suit me to well as i have very pale skin and very dark hair so i tend to go more for nudey oranges and red shades. 

 Maybelline Color Sensational 
 PLEASURE ME RED #547 £6.99
This is my go to red lipstick for when i just want to feel womanly and sexy on a night out, its a very deep blood red shade. I do find that this lipstick does tend to dry out my lips so before and after i apply it i like to use a good lip balm. You don't even really need much make up on when you are wearing this as it stands out on its own. I usually wear this lipstick with big lashes and penciled eye liner on top and only half way in on bottom.

Rimmel London Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick 
 #16 £5.49
This is my perfect 'my lips but better' lipstick i tend to use this more if i'm not really going out and just want to have a soft natural finish to my makeup. It's very creamy and light weight on the lips you wont even know your wearing anything.
