Here’s another unboxing for you. This one had me wondering about what happened this month and, when I went to do the maths… I got even more suspicious… I talked about it on my Insta Stories, also.

on my last visit to the supermarket, I was flabbergasted: they have discontinued the only sulfate-free shampoo line that was not meant for extremely damaged and colour-treated hair and that was readily available (as in, in the supermarket). this oily haired gal that prides herself on keeping her locks on a delicate balance that only need washing up to 3 times a week but gets dandruff whenever she uses a regular sulfate shampoo was outraged.
then my eyes hit that new thingamajig L’Oréal came up with. I’m no stranger to the no-poo trend but had never tried it — and this is just LOW-poo, but still… it probably will be too heavy, I thought.
then I reminded myself of my 3 readers/subscribers and decided “what the heck! it’s for science!”

although I have a great time with Lush’s bath bombs, bath mets and overall fun stuff, to me Lush is an overall really solid green-oriented brand with great products in all ranges. Lush is hardcore cruelty-free, many of their products are vegan, and they claim all of the chemicals they still use on their products (fragrance, sulfates, preservatives) to not be harmful for the skin, especially in the concentrations they use.
I had to had to do a video on my everyday Lush favourites.
nose disclaimer: I love soft, creamy, nutty scents, vanilla absolute, and then soft roses, coconut and coffee sort of aromas. not too much into the strongly fruity, tropical, sickening sweet or floral end of the smell spectrum. but all of this has to do with preferences, right? nothing like giving it a whiff in store ;)

I walked past a shelf of these on the supermarket and I could NOT leave them there. I had to bring them home and try them.
Yes, probably this is more fitted for young girls, but I’m a young girl at heart and these colours were not available when I was growing up and trying to be the rebel with the golden heart I was.
Here’s my test-drive of this novelty product. Let me know: would you wear it?
I think it’s fun and a good way to play with colour on one’s hair without the commitment and huge expense of having it done correctly in a salon, bleaching the hair and having to go there every fortnight to redo the roots.
The Colorista line comes with three types of products: the spray-on one day colour, the 1 to 2 weeks tint, and a permanent colour line.
As you can see on their ads, the brighter colours are meant for blond and bleached hair, or else they won’t show up. L’Oréal, of course, offer a bleach within the line, but to be honest, if you’re going that route, I’d strongly advise you to get it done by a professional. Have you heard of burnt scalp? Yes, it’s a thing.
I found these products on the supermarket, so if you’re not in Portugal, you’ll probably find these at your local drugstores that sell L’Oréal hair products.
shorter hair, don’t care… but should you care?
here’s a little run down of my personal ups and downs of having shorter hair.
what about yours? care to share?
