SWITCH IT UP // This Is A Texturizing Dust by Davines VS Super Dust by L'oreal

 
 

In the words of my hairdressers, past and present:

"Girl got fine hair, but girl got a lot of it..."

So, from time to time, girl gotta get a little help.

Five years ago, a hairdresser friend of mine popped L'oreal's Super Dust into my hen do goodie bag, as part of my box of tricks for Wedding Day hair.

Before then, I'd never seen or heard of these sticky little minxes; a funny dry powder dust that sticks, clumps and volumises the hair particles. So I've used it for every big event or night out since.

However, use with these little guys with caution. If you ever accidentally breathe one of those minuscule dry powder particles in, BOY do you know about it. That lovely sticky, clumpy magical thing it does to your fine tresses? Also happens right into the back of your throat, and you'll most certainly end up eye-wateringly coughing and spluttering up your entire evenings make up efforts.. classy.  

So I did a straight swap.

I have noticed a significant difference to my panicked dusting, holding my breath episodes and shoving all over since switching up from L'oreal Super Dust to Eco Brand, Davines This is a Texturizing Dust.

And whilst Davines could work a little harder to confirm to us general public whether or not they are an entirely Cruelty Free Brand, it settles me more knowing I'm opting for a brand which cares significantly about the planet, from their 100% Clean Energy Production Guarantee  to their programmes promoting Zero Impact Salons

TALC-FREE TRESSES // Organic Dry Shampoo Powder by Corinne Taylor

There is a new essential to add to my ever increasing box of magic tricks in the beauty cabinet and that is an Organic Dry Shampoo Powder from Corinne Taylor.

Handmade in Brighton, I was happy to support a local via this particular Dry Shampoo; but it needed to be hassle free & tick all the boxes before I invested in it as a regular.

So, what was on my 'no fuss' list for this Dry Shampoo to stand up to the task?

Well, it had to smell delicious - which it does; a zesty, lemony freshness that comes from the Organic Grapefruit essential oil within it. There's also a summery background scent, which smells like an English Rose Garden – very feminine and takes it up a notch from feeling like an everyday item to feeling a little more luxe.

Secondly, it was also important that it didn't clump or clog up in a white, grainy texture on the scalp once applied to my hair. And I found this Organic Dry Shampoo Powder to be super lightweight and mattifying – soaking up any excessive oil to leave my hair feeling refreshed; not heavy.

Finally, I wanted to find a Dry Shampoo that was as natural as can be - in a continued effort to move away from petroleum, aerosol-like products which leave me coughing and spluttering.

Talc-free, paraben-free, sls-free and organic; it's clear these values are just as important to Corinne in her products, as they are to me hunting them down. It's not left my travel bag since...
