In setting up this blog, I wanted to also connect with brands. Brands that fit with the ethos of this blog and would naturally be of interest to my readers but brands that are also something special. So I approached my favourite hair care company, milk_shake, and introduced this blog to them. Anyone who knows me, knows I spend a fortune on my hair with regular cuts and colours in my favourite salon with the most wonderful stylist. I have put my hair through a lot in the last 20 years with frequent full head colours and recently some pink rinses too! milk_shake have always been a salon favourite and I love how it makes my hair shine and bounce like no other product really has.
When I told them about this blog, they saw an instant connection. Their whole brand philosophy is centred around making people feel good and so is this blog! They kindly sent me the most wonderful prize to give away and not just that, but some additional treats which I’ll be giving as random acts of kindness to a few of you. That’s right – you don’t even have to win this competition! I might just choose to make your day anyway – and as with all random acts of kindness – it could happen to you, and at any time. Exciting!
Now, before we go to the competition, let me just share a little personal insight into their products. Every single product – and believe me, I use many, many products on my hair – smells absolutely delicious. I defy you not to crave sweet things after you use them. Fruity strawberry scents come from the Silver Shine Shampoo for blonde hair, a cocoa and coconut mixed fragrance exudes from the Integrity Nourishing Conditioner, and the Incredible Milk which I use to tame my naturally frizzy hair before styling, has an almost caramel base note.
Most people who have come across milk_shake before, know about their wonderful Whipped Cream, a leave-in foam which conditions and restructures damaged hair and is a genie in a 200ml bottle! If you are a daily user of straighteners like me, then you’ll also love the Glistening Spray which gives your locks sublime shine but without any cloying residue.
The Integrity range is definitely a go-to if your hair needs a pick-me-up or is damaged by too much colour and heat styling. The Muru Muru Butter, applied before shampooing, is a stroke of genius, undoing years of bad treatment to give a red carpet shine to your hair in minutes!
I’ll say it again – I’ve not been paid to write this post. I approached milk_shake as I’m a genuine superfan and believe that there are two reasons I get so many lovely comments about my hair; my wonderful stylist and the quality of products I use!
So to the competition. I have a sensational pamper pack to be won. This prize is worth over £70 and will have your hair shining like you’ve had a salon treatment, every time you use it! You can enter in lots of different ways and if you write a blog comment, don’t just type what the person above you has written. Check out the milk_shake website and tell me what product would really help your particular hair type. I’ll be choosing a few of you to send products out to as the competition runs. See I told you from the start, this blog is a bit different!
