Forgive me for not checking in for over a week! I’ve now moved back home and settling in has taken the longest amount of time! My first London trip was of course to the wonderful Superdrug (i heart this place!), I decided to do a mini shop in preparation for my 8 month post relaxer.

I usually use a product over a period of months before reviewing it, but i had some immediate results, so let’s call this the taster review!

Below average, will not be using again ❤
Nice results, but other products work better ❤❤
Absolutely love it, new staple ❤❤❤

Matrix Biolage Ultra Hydrating Balm

Price£9.00 ☆☆☆
ClaimsIndulge dry hair and protect essential moisture. A softening treatment to improve the condition of damaged hair. Leaves hair noticeably softer, conditioned and more manageable. This conditioning treatment is especially formulated for dehydrated, under nourished hair. Infused with nurturing algae and wheat germ to enrich your hair with essential moisture and manageability, transforming unruly frizz by smoothing and controlling. 
LYT Rating: I decided to follow the instructions and use the Balm immediately after shampooing my hair. Although the balm was only left in for a few minutes it made my hair so soft and silky. I know this one is a keeper and look forward to seeing how it holds up as my hair gains more re-growth. 
Herbal Essences Smooth and Soft intensive mask
Price: £4.00 ☆
Claims: Soft and smooth hair
LYT Rating: This rating isn’t based on results from my hair. I used this as a deep conditioner for my younger sisters natural hair. It made detangling very easy and moreso left her hair very soft. Therefore this will be a staple, seeing as I will use it again for her! ❤❤❤

V05 Miracle Concentrate Elixir with Argan Oil

Price: £3.00 
Claims: Containing Argan Oil, known to be high in Vitamin E, rich in anti-oxidants, our miracle concentrate will provide ultimate hydration. Intensely conditioning and not only protecting your hair from blow drying, it helps reduce drying time too. The result is unbelievably smooth and silky soft hair with luminous shine.
LYT Rating: I was extremely disappointed with this! I applied it to my hair just before commencing with blow drying and it made my hair feel very dry. Funny for something which is supposed to be a miracle elixir right? I may try this product one more time for the sake of being sure however for now it is not even worthy of one rating.
