Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo - Colour Mate

Hello Lovelies,

In a market already packed with products, Aussie have rolled out a range of dry shampoos to supplement their existing hair care products.


With 3 different aims (Mega Instant, Aussome Volume + Colour Mate), the product is clear, light and has that usual Aussie aroma. It is also available in handbag size and regular. The packaging had a slightly nicer feel to it that its competitors.

I have been trying out the Colour Mate dry shampoo and I can safely say I am on the fence with this one. I don’t feel like it freshened my roots in the slightest and it left my hair feeling a bit odd. On the upside, it didn’t have that chalky white powder that is a curse for brunettes.

The smell lingered and it’s not one I care for but as I have recently changed my hair colour I was thankful it didn’t leave me with white roots. If you are wanting something to really soak up some root grease to get you through one more day, this might not be the one for you. It certainly didn't do anything for me that I good updo couldn't.

Maybe I picked the wrong type and should have tried the Mega Instant, I don’t know, but I don't think i'll be repurchasing.

You can buy the Aussie Dry Shampoo from Boots and all usual Aussie stockists.

Food Friday : The Craven Heifer Inn, Skipton

Hello Lovelies, 

We had read good reviews of the Craven Heifer Inn so we took ourselves off there for a good old fashioned pub meal. It just so happened the day we turned up, we got caught in the most almighty Armageddon rain and hailstorm you could imagine so we were a drippy soaked mess by the time we got from the car to the pub! Thankfully we were given some nice dry bar towels to mop ourselves down!

Bye Bye White - my new hair

Hello Lovelies, 

I suit blonde, I always go back to blonde and my natural hair colour is dark blonde. 


With that said, going platinum / white was something I really quite regret as it is one of those things you are stuck with as hairdressers shy away from toning it down and taking it back to a natural colour.

I took myself off to my favourite hairdresser, Nicola, and asked her to make me a more natural blonde. It was a 4hr process which involved laying a gold based toner over the white to add a colour deposit then another colour on top. It will need tweaking again on my next visit but it's such a natural colour.


I think you'll agree the finished product is gorgeous. It's such a difference from the white!
