Keratin Classic Shampoo & Luscious Locks

Since being young, I've always had A LOT of hair. It sounds odd, but the actual strands of hair are very fine but I have so much of it, it is super thick. Meaning I have to take good care of it even more so I'm always on the look out for new hair products to keep it in good shape. And since my best friend is a hairdresser/stylist & barber I've become more and more interested in hair and hair products over recent years! (She has her own blog, go check out Zotonixe.)
So when I spotted this shampoo, I thought I'd give it a try.

The shampoo is clear and doesn't appear to be nothing fancy but it smells so good!

The great thing about the lid, is it has a good snap lid. I have been victim of shampoo glugging out of the bottles too quickly. This way you get just the right amount out of the bottle. The shape of the bottle is unusual too and I think it may have been that and the colour of the bottle that caught my eye in the shop.
Okay, so the Keratin Classic Shampoo claims to make hair straighter, sleek, smooth and frizz free hair. Having straight hair naturally I can't speak about that point but I did notice my hair looking shinier and sleek once I had used this product. My hair is pretty untouched (apart from some blonde highlights I had put in as a teen), and is very healthy. But some on girls, who doesn't like next lever shiny hair? the only thing I don't like about this is I used it fairly quickly, I need more!
Until next time.

On Location

A last minute shoot is something I have always loved. Like a last minute night out, there is something about the spontaneity that creates a good vibe! So when Rich Schaapkens asked if I could model for him last minute I was more than happy to jump in with both feet.

I have known Rich for sometime now as the boyfriend of a good friend of mine. Always having the latest & coolest phone, I knew Rich for snapping really cool shots on his smartphone. But recently he has started branching out into more street images with a DSLR camera. As a photographer, I think the style of work I have seen so far reflects himself very well... The styling, the editing etc etc.

T Shirt by Supply & Demand

The styling of the shoot was very casual and 'street.' My make up was done by the amazing Josephine Birkett (who happens to be Rich's girlfriend.) - I know, creative couple or what! We went to a very cool location in Newcastle and shot in a few different spots! It was such a good time shooting with a new time photographer and just shooting with someone new is refreshing!

Why don't you all go check out more of Rich Schaapkens work as well as the awesome Josephine Birkett. They are both super talented and good friends of mine so blogs like these are always nice to write.
Until next time...
