With Halloween coming up, I couldn’t decide if I wanted to dress up or not. I pretty much use October as an excuse to crack out all my skeleton clothing anyway. Rather than dressing up I wanted to make a simple change and just go for dark make up and a gothic look wig.

I got myself the Vixen wig from Hot hair for £19 which I think is an absolute bargain for a wig. It was on offer reduced from nearly £50! They have so many great wigs, for any occasion, whether you want to wear one daily or if you want to wear one as part of a costume.

I have tried wigs before, I put a wig cap on before putting this on. It fitted really well and felt secure. I may trim the fringe slightly though and if I ever change my mind about the length of the wig I may cut it into a bob!

I feel like I have Wednesday Addams/Morticia vibes with this look, but I am digging it.

Have you tried a wig?

Another product from Eco cosmetics that I have been trying is their hair mousse. This is a vegan/ natural product designed to be used on any hair type.

I like to use this mousse if I blow dry my hair. It helps to keep the frizz at bay and leaves my hair feeling soft and looking more manageable and shiny. It doesn’t leave your hair feeling crunchy like I always expect mousse to. it just helps to tame the flyaways and strengthen your hair.

Khadi create 100% plant based vegan hair products. They only contain ingredients good for your hair and won’t use any harsh chemicals. This is ideal for me as I have pretty much ruined my hair over the years with bleach so I have been trying to use more natural and gentle hair products. Not only are they better for your hair but if you have un-naturally dyed hair like me then natural products will prolong your colour.

I have been using the amla volume and gloss shampoo which is suitable for all hair types and also the vitalising hair oil which provides volume, stimulates hair growth and prevents hair loss.

“Amla Shampoo contains the correct combination of Ayurevdic herbs to create volume and gloss. Amla shampoo with it’s low ph, cleanses and conditions your hair giving it elasticity, helping to prevent moisture loss and at the same time giving your hair shine, body and volume.

The fragrance of Ylang Ylang in Khadi Amla Shampoo not only adds to the aroma but helps stimulate hair growth.

Amla – Rejuvenates scalp and hair, stimulates hair growth and naturally conditions hair.

Tulsi – purifies scalp and helps prevent hair and scalp from getting oily and hair getting limp. promotes hair growth.”

“Khadi Vitalising hair Oil is a hair oil to help stimulate hair growth using herbs, flowers and oils from India from an Ayurvedic formula. Vitalising Hair Oil is a pre-wash conditioning treatment and as well as stimulating hair growth the hair oil helps prevent hair loss whilst giving volume and revitalises dry, dull and damaged hair.

Palash, Indrayan and Rosemary helps stimulate hair growth and strengthen roots.

Omega rich Sesame, Coconut and Carrot Seed Oil along with Vitamin E helps prevent hair breakage.”

As you can see,both products are great if you are looking for hair growth. My hair always struggles as it breaks off before it has a chance to grow due to being so damaged. I have tried a lot of things to try to get it back into better condition and to help it grow longer and healthier.

I really liked the shampoo as you don’t need to use much and I noticed it didn’t fade my hair colour as much as my usual shampoo which was a colour safe one!

Did you see my previous post where I tried out my first wig? I got on so well with it that I decided to get another one and go for a different style/colour. My new one is the Echo wig from www.hothair.co.uk and is in the shade creamy glow.

I wanted to go for a slightly longer and blonder wig as I would love to go blonde naturally but my hair cannot handle the bleach!

I braided my hair to get it out of the way and keep it as flat to my head as I could.

I love how natural this one looks and you can change where the parting is and if you want a side or middle fringe etc.

I found this wig so comfortable to wear and I think it looks such great quality and looks so realistic.

It takes a bit of practice to get used to wearing a wig and takes a bit of adjustment to get them to sit perfect on your head but they are so comfy to wear throughout the day.

Would you try a wig? I think I would like black one next as I have always wanted black hair but the darkest I have gone is dark brown.

I am back sharing with you what hair care I am using at the moment. When ever I run out of shampoo and conditioner I love to take the opportunity to try something new. I have been using the Maui moisture revive and hydrate range for the last few weeks and I am really impressed.

This range is specifically designed for people with dry and damaged hair but they also have other ranges available in boots and superdrug depending on your hair concern: dry hair, chemically damaged hair, thick curly hair, weak or brittle hair.

This range is vegan and they do not contain any sulfates, they just have good ingredients like aloe juice and coconut water.

I found they products very hydrating, which is what you need if your hair is dry and damaged. They products left my hair feeling really soft and revived as well as leaving it a lot more manageable and it looked in a lot better condition after it dried. I didn’t need to put so much oil on the ends like i usually do.

D you always stick to the same hair products or do you like to try new things when your current products run out?
