[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ads] It’s taken me such a long time to be interested in hair care – I’ve picked these three sets because they’re such a good representation of what’s around. If you’re not interested in hair, but want to give gifts to those who are, hopefully it will act as a guide.
Gosh, I can’t tell you how luxurious this beautiful Oribe set is! And the box is stunning – I would not be able to throw that in recycling – it’s illustrated by Japanese artist Kohei Kyomori. The set is £100 HERE – I said it was luxury! I’ve used Oribe in the past and it’s genuinely next level hair care. They use a complex called bio-restorative that helps to strengthen the hair so it would make a difference over time to over-processed hair or hair that can be brittle and weak. I would eke out every precious drop of both the shampoo and conditioner – I’m confident that you will see a difference in shine and bounce and it’s certainly the most luxurious hair care I’ve ever used. I think with luxury you really need to know there’s something different and better about it. I’d never spend £100 on my regular shampoos and conditioners but for the treat of all treats, I’m in. It’s testament to Oribe that I haven’t used the brand for at least five years (that I can think of) and yet I can still remember the results. I’ve linked to SpaceNK because you also get a free ‘Bright Blond’ set with a purchase of £75 or more.
It’s testament to tenacity and conviction that I’ve been won over by Living Proof. I started off saying I wasn’t at all interested in receiving samples to eventually deciding I would give a couple of products a go. Now, I’m really pleased if samples arrive, I’ve got my mum the Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo HERE which is the best in the business in my view for her Christmas stocking and I swear by Triple Detox Shampoo HERE for the cleanest hair you’ve ever had especially if you live in a hard water area. In my box of products to try is the Triple Bond Complex which I haven’t quite got to yet. I’ve found this set, which is best for hair that needs a bit of oomph for £38 HERE (reduced from £48 and containing £74 value).
I haven’t used the Thickening Cream but am sure that if volume is what you seek, you will find!
Paul Mitchell hair care has been in my sightline for many years but I realised that I don’t actually know anything about the brand. The company was founded in 1980 by friends John Paul DeJoria and Paul Mitchell, initially for affordable use in salons. The company began with just $700 to its name! Now, it’s a whole different story – they have nine separate brands to their name, have never sold onwards to a corporation, and service both the professional industry (with schools and education) and consumer. This set contains the original shampoo, Awapuhi – where it all started – that uses a ginger family based extract from Hawaii to cleanse and provide antioxidant protection. It’s very much worth having a look at the video showing the extraction HERE. It also contains a Detangler and Sculpting Foam (which I am going nowhere near! I can’t be trusted with this!). I’ve found it at various prices across the internet so I suggest you Google for the best deal but if you go to Sally Beauty HERE, it’s £40.60. This set is a suit-all really. I should say that the bottles are enormous – 300ml.

Awh… Every time I see Oribe my heart’s missing a beat! But still can not justify the price for myself.. Funny to see which products we splurge and which we “scroodge”…
I know – unless I won the lottery I don’t think I could but you never know.. perhaps I should buy a ticket!
Sure thing! Do buy a ticket! We traditionally buy a half of a lot on the New Year Eve – and regularly win… 1.5 to 5 Euro (with the price of that half-ticket in 7.5).. But there’s still a chance, huh? 🙂 X-mas miracles and such… anyway, the joy of anticipation, the fun of laughing it out (and a drink to cheer up afterwards… you know, right?)
you never know!
Oh, my goodness, I bit the bullet and bought the Oribe colour shampoo (and later, the conditioner) last month after my hairdresser had used it on me and I was blown away by the beautiful scent and the lovely results. It’s absolutely amazing, I can’t go back now. (You can sometimes get it for 20% off online, and a little really does go a long way.) It’s one of the few products that really does live up to the hype.
I’m always glad to hear this – I don’t like recommending such expensive products unless they go above and beyond, which in this case, they do.
Oribe, I remember buying this Gold Lush Set in the sales a few years back. Total love. I buy when SpaceNK have offers and individual products.
Paul Mitchell, I remember buying years ago. Great brand actually, my then hairdresser sold the brand.
I’ll keep an eye out and if it comes up in the sales, I’ll flag it.
I got a huge bottle of Paul Mitchell volumising conditioner years ago and it’s still going! I got it at Supercuts online when they had one of their many sales so it cost me something ridiculous like £5-10 for a litre bottle. Not all their sale prices are amazing but there are plenty of good things so it’s worth getting their emails for notification of sales.
Great to know, thank you Honey 🙂
