Beauty Review; Klorane Flax Fiber Range

I’m going to be honest, I have always been pretty lucky with my hair. Although my hair is fine, I have tons of it hence why hairstylist always like to create mega big hairstyles on me, the bigger the better. Having fine hair does have its benefits, it curls easily and you can get some serious volume without having to try too hard or use too many products, but the downside is that it just doesn’t stay. My hair drops super quickly and ends up looking flat only after an hour of glory, which is pretty annoying!I did a fashion show recently and we ended up having to re-curl my hair 3 TIMES before the show as it kept on dropping. The unfortunate thing with my hair is apart from being fine, it is also quite temperamental and I’m 100% sure it has a mind of its own. In this particular case, it did not want to stay curly and glorious to the hairstylist’s despair.

When I don’t work I try to leave my hair alone as much as possible as although my hair is pretty resilient, it does get damaged by all the backcombing, hairspray and the constant use of heated styling tools. When I’m just smooshing around at home I just wash it and leave my hair in its natural state which is slightly curly, frizzy and pretty flat. However, if I’m seeing a friend for a quick coffee or perhaps going to a casting, I will always do something to make my hair looking a little fuller. This is mainly because I have a serious hang-up about having quite a small head and having flat, lifeless hair is a big NO NO. I have always been a girl who spends time and effort looking after my skin and hair and I remember even as a kid growing up, we always had good quality shampoo and conditioner at home. My hair just does not respond well to your normal basic supermarket hair products. It either becomes totally uncontrollable, flat, greasy or my hair starts looking like a bird’s nest (eek). About 2 months ago the lovely girls at Klorane contacted me to see if I would be interested in trying out their range. I sort of recognised the brand but I had never tried it myself and I actually had no idea that the brand was as established as it is! I rarely go outside my comfort zone when it comes to hair products as I’m quite happy with my current regime so wasn’t really in the market for changing it. However, after having some hair extensions put in for a shoot recently (never again!) my hair had kind of lost its mojo and was looking a little sorry for itself. Time for a volume boost me thinks!

Apart from the actual results achieved by the products I use there is another concern that I have and that is the ingredients in the products.

When I was younger I never, ever thought about what was in my beauty products but as I have got older, it is something that has a major impact on what products I pick. In the past, I have even gone as far as only using organic, vegan and non-toxic products but unfortunately, it did not work out as well as I had hoped. I discovered to my disappointment that although the products were non-toxic and organic, they did not give me the results I was after and because of this, nowadays I will try to keep a close eye on what is in the products I use but I do not exclusively use organic, non-toxic products. So needless to say I was pretty excited to try products that promised to deliver the results I was after from a brand that prides themselves on being vegan, paraben and silicone-free. I’m always keen to avoid parabens in any of the products I use as they are thought to increase the risk of developing cancer and are generally unnecessary preservatives that most products can do without. We are being exposed to free-radicals and pollutants on a daily basis so if you can avoid unpleasant ingredients and toxins, why wouldn’t you?!

The Facts(Information supplied by http://www.klorane.co.uk) “Flax is a plant that currently offers a variety of application. Textile flax is used for its long fibers, which, after various processing steps, produce the linen thread used for making fabrics. Linseed is grown for its edible seeds that are rich in oïl and protein. They are widely used in the field of dietetics as they are very rich in essential fatty acids. In the food industry, the mucilage of its seeds can be used to replace gum arabic. In herbal médicine, flax seeds are used for internal and external purposes due to their emollient and soothing properties. In cosmetics, flax is mainly used for its anti-aging and softening properties. Recently, its use in hair care has been established thanks to the volumizing properties of its mucilage.Klorane Laboratories, derive mucilage from flaxseeds: soluble fibers composed of polysaccharides, which offer film-forming properties, act as powerful natural protectors to support and volumize hair from the root.”With a lot of products that promise volume you get that initial vavavoom and your hair bounces up like a kid on a trampoline but it’s usually very short-lived. After my first use of the Flax fiber range, I was like “This is really good, smells lovely but I don’t trust that this is going to last” And how very wrong was I?!The VerdictI have used Klorane’s range now for over two months and I’m really impressed! Klorane Flax Fiber Volume Shampoo is becoming as familiar to me as a close friend. I absolutely love it and I never travel without it. But why do I love it so much? Let me explain and you will understand why.Klorane is using some serious plant-based know-how in their products and it works so beautifully. The Flax Fiber Shampoo and Conditioner has been developed for people such as myself with fine hair that has got the tendency to become flat and limp and really who likes having a flat mane? Not me!I have now completely replaced my normal hair-care routine with Klorane’s products for a month and each and every time I used it, I’m equally as impressed. The initial results I got still has not faded one bit even after 2 months of use. Now that is what I call a hair superhero!My hair seems to stay bouncy and doesn’t get flat as easily and I have also noticed that because I don’t need to use any additional products like hair-spray to keep the volume, my hair is less damaged. Double wammy!I have also discovered and fallen in love with one other product from the Klorane range which is the Oat Milk Dry Shampoo.I love dry shampoo partly because I’m pretty lazy but partly because it gives my hair that extra boost. I do find that some dry shampoo tend to get a little sticky and heavy, weighing my hair down. This one however, does not and it can tackle the greasiest of manes (trust me, I tried).It’s your perfect companion when you have one of those days where you wake up 30 mins too late for work and literally do not have a spare second to wash your hair. All you need to do is spray, brush and you are good to go. It does not leave a lot of residue at all. The last thing you need when you are in a rush is to be covered in white dry shampoo redidue making you look like you have turned grey overnight.I really love using these products together as it really gives my hair a proper boost and keeps my hair smelling nice, looking fresh and bouncy!
