Fresh Lengths shares her hair care advice

March Pure Pampering GlowwBox is now available!Have you ever experienced moments in your hair journey, where you you wake up one day and look in the mirror and wonder what’s happening to your hair? I’m talking about when you start to realise that your hair length is shorter than it was yesterday and your hair no longer feels as thick as it used to or it no longer does ‘that thing’ it used to!

Fresh-Lengths-3
Well if you can relate to this, then you share something in common with Hair Blogger Lesley of ‘FreshLengths’. Lesley too has experienced her hair challenges. In fact she’d be one of the first to tell you that her hair was not always as healthy as it appears today:

My hair hasn’t always been healthy, in fact it became extremely damaged and broke off to neck length a few years ago! Having short fragile hair finally made me realise I needed to make some changes. (Lesley, Gloww Magazine March 2015)

It’s very important that we take the time to really care for our hair, otherwise we will see episodes of this happening frequently! In our Gloww Magazine this month (our in-box GlowwBox magazine), Lesley shares her hair regime and her advice on restoring damaged hair to being healthy and thick.

If damaged hair is not a problem for you, Lesley also shares her skin care regime and it may be a little surprising (especially as her skin is so flawless!) And of course we couldn’t let her go without having her share her favourite pampering products and sessions.

We know that you’ll find what she has to say useful, especially if you have the same challenges and goals! To read her tips and enjoy the 6 lush pampering products we’ve discovered, be sure to sign up for our March GlowwBox here

Sneak peek: March Pure Pampering GlowwBox

March Pure Pampering GlowwBox is now available!

Can you believe it? It’s March already! Even more exciting news is this means our new March GlowwBox is here!

This month we are so excited to present to you our March ‘Pure Pampering’ Edition. A GlowwBox that’s packed full of six products that we think are perfect for your pampering needs, you won’t just feel relaxed after using them but also truly spoiled!

This month we have an exciting product reveal for you! So exciting we couldn’t wait to let you know about it!

Sneak Peak: Try the new Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence Extreme!

Sneak Peak: Try the new Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence Extreme in the March GlowwBox!

For the first time ever, we have a Philip Kingsley product for you to enjoy (we told you we were spoiling you this month!). The Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence Extreme is the brand new hair conditioner (just released!) which is suitable for over processed, porous and all variations of African-Caribbean hair and you’ll be trying the 50ml version worth £8!

When I got the opportunity to try this out, I was very excited. It claims to strengthen and repair the damaged hair, and whilst I can’t testify to that (I’ll have to use it a few more times!), it has left my hair feeling soft as well as helped in de-tangling my strands.

As a leave-in conditioning spray, you apply this to wet hair after you have shampooed and conditioned. I was pleasantly surprised as it did not leave any unpleasant residue in my hair and my hair felt shiny after my first wash.

This is a great product and I can definitely see myself making this a staple in my hair wash regime! The perfect hair pampering session!

It uses organic jojoba and organic shea butter to moisturise your lips. It’s a fantastic lip balm especially during the winter months when your lips are more likely to become dry and cracked.

We’ve also got for you these Lavera Natural Lipsticks in either Brown Sugar or Berry Violet. With all natural ingredients such as Jojoba oil and Coconut oil, these lipsticks will keep your lips healthy and conditioned leaving lips perfectly cared for. Wear on top of the Lavera Basis Sensitive Organic Lip Balm for that extra protection this winter!

Have you ever gone out with your nails looking amazing when you left the house and then all of a sudden there it is… the chip! Where did it even come from? Well we thought you’d appreciate having this Beauty UK Nail varnish in the colour Red Royale in your handbag. These quick dry, easy to apply, high gloss formulas deliver intense colour that will last for days. Perfect!

It’s not just our nails we like to touch up! That’s why we’ve included these Benecos Natural Eyeshadow Monos in either Mokka (a beautiful brown / gold) or Happy Hour (a stunning deep purple). These are perfect for when you’re out and about and you want to create a quick pop of colour or a smokey eye look!

Finally, we couldn’t complete this Handbag Heroes edition without including a hand cream! That’s why we’ve included this Primavera Energising Hand and Nail Cream (Ginger & Lime). It glides on easily and absorbs quickly to protect skin and strengthen nails.
