Microfibre Hair Wraps are so good for your hair if you are trying to prevent damage and frizz. Using one of these instead of a towel makes your hair smoother whilst it dries.

This is a great way to try out the range without commuting to full size bottles. I love the design of the bottles and they are easy to use. I have really been enjoying the body oil as you only need a small amount and it leaves you really soft. It would make a really good gift idea.
The good wash day towel is made from a really soft cotton almost like a t-shirt material and is to be used instead of a regular towel to be kinder to your hair. After using it you can notice your hair dries a lot less frizzy and its softer so I would recommend making the switch. It comes in a really good range of colours too.

Embryolisse Beauty Oil
I have been obsessed with body oils this year and find them so much nicer to use than moisturiser as they lock in the moisture better. This one is enriched with active vegetable oils, this Embryolisse Beauty Oil moisturizes, nourishes and beautifies skin and hair. It is absorbed quickly leaving a non-greasy, satiny veil with a sweet floral scent. Multi-purpose care, for daily application on the face, body and hair. On the Face, Body & Hair, deeply nourishing dry areas, toning your complexion, drying with a non greasy stain finish. I love how it can be used on your hair too if you have dry ends.
£19.95 for 250ml
This sanitiser cleanses hands or equipment while creating an amazing aroma without leaving a sticky residue.

It is made with natural anti-bacterial and cleansing wild peppermint, eucalyptus, lavender and geranium essential oils. It smells so good and it can be refilled to reduce plastic waste.
I love my pair of Rubis tweezers and they are my favourite ones to use as they are sharp and precise as well as being easy to use so I would definitely recommend this brand. They are made from rustproof stainless steel and are tested individually for balance and performance.
