Stemm High Density Hair Serum by Deciem

Hello beauties,

As I get older, not only does my skin and face age, but I have really noticed that my hair has thinned, gotten a LOT finer, my curls have flopped and basically it looks and feels pretty lifeless and sad.

Anyone who knows me, knows I have spent quite a bit of money on high-end brands, to try to treat the lack of life, volume and body in my hair. But buying expensive shampoos and conditioners was quite frankly a waste of money; they might have smelled fantastic, but they weren’t hitting the mark really.

Hello Stemm!!

Deciem has recently released a set of 3 products, to treat all aspects of hair ageing, cleansing and conditioning. All without parabens and sulphates, to really tackle volume, hair loss, ageing and condition, from the scalp to the hair end!

There is a set for blonde hair & a set for darker haired beauties! I think the Stemm Density Stimuli deserves it’s very own post, because it treats the scalp and the hair follicle (root). So right from the first use, you are giving your hair the very best chance to be healthy as it grows.

Our hair, once it leaves the follicle, is dead, so it makes such good sense and it is vital to treat and keep those precious follicles healthy. In turn, we are giving hair a better chance to grow well, be stronger and healthy and restore vitality. It is pure anti ageing for anyone who suffers from fine, poor, damaged, or mature hair, that has lost its lustre.

Packed full of amino acids, green tea, caffeine, black vulvic acid, zinc, hyaluronic acid, magnesium, copper and so many other incredible ingredients, to give you the best hair growth and life to your hair you can possibly have.

The reason I am singing the praises of this product so much, is because of the results I have had personally from the products. I am 47 and my hair had lost all of its life due to health, medications, anemia and age.

As someone who loves skincare, I never connected the dots, to apply the same care to my hair as I did to my face….until now .. and it makes perfect sense and I am now reaping the rewards and results.

There is a gentle hair cleanser and a very clever conditioner that treats the damage on the actual hair shaft and really strengthens the lengths, which I also know has helped my hair incredibly and I do not say that lightly.

I really loved this treatment for the scalp, applied in a very small amount at night, no need to overload, you just need to massage it lightly over your scalp at night and let the follicles soak it up.

If you are going to spend a lot money to tackle ageing on your hair, it is crucial to get the very first step right I think; and this has improved even the lift, body and volume on the roots of my hair so much … I think anyone with thin, weak hair has nothing to lose by trying this.

It is a treatment at last, that in a 3 step process, tackles all aspects of my hair ageing and damage. I would say it has taken about 20 years off how my hair looks, feels and reacts and it is soo much stronger; no more stretching and snapping.

The set I have is the trio for blonde hair and the only place right now you can get the set is from QVC and it is much better value than buying individually. You can find the set here: Stemm 3 Step Hair Thickening Collection .

I will follow up with the shampoo and conditioner in another post (and get a trim lol) 

That is it for now beauties,

Little Ondine Nail polish in Red Red Wine

Hey everyone,

I have to confess I am not the best at nail art or having perfectly manicured nails all the time. Having been a chef for over 20 years I was just never one who got round to sitting working with them because as soon as I had the polish on and nailed .. it was time to get it off in a hurry and back to work .. add in they are thin and bendy.. it is just not my strong point at all!

Now in saying that, I do like nail polish and now have quite a stash of polish! I am a magpie for some glittery nails .. I can’t mess up a sheer nude glittery nail lol! Somehow Little Ondine have managed to suspend pure organic colour pigments in a resin and water base to bring incredible polishes with amazing depths of colour and gloss.

So when I got sent Little Ondine nail polishes to try I have been kinda obsessed since for many reasons ( I have a few of these now). If I make a mess I can quickly peel it off (often) If I change my mind on colour (often) I can just peel it off and start again!

Add to this there is no odour so you can do your nails anywhere now there is also no need for smelly old nail polish remover either!

If you are a hardcore Shellac polish sort of a girl who gets 3 weeks out of a manicure, then this won’t be for you!

If you are a woman who likes a weekend manicure and needs to take it off Sunday night in a panic then this is your sort of fuss free and care free nail polish that gives you a superb high gloss finish and colour and does its job incredibly well.

I got this polish in Red Red Wine a beautiful deep Burgundy shade that is rich, luxurious, glossy and expensive looking. The depth of colour just mesmerises me .. it really does and it is an all year round shade.

I get about 3 days out of one of these Little Ondine manicures and that suits me fine as by that time I want a different colour on. You could of course extend the life of these polishes by sealing them in with a top coat & base coat plus the glitters will always be more hard wearing.

But for me this is what nail polish should be .. fun frivolous and never tied down to any shade for too long, that suits me and I am sure a lot of other people perfectly ..
