I’ve been a bit of a hair slut recently. I’ve been flirting with my Moroccan Oil range, making eyes at my Richard Ward HydraSlim range and holding hands with my TreSemme Split Ends range, all the while in an ongoing steady relationship with my Ojon Hydrating range. And even there, I’ve been messing about with other products from Ojon that have taken my fancy.
But now I think its time to stop the two-timing and cheating. I’ve found a haircare range I love and I’m shouting about it to all who want to listen!
The love of my (hair) life? It had to be French, non? The Leonor Greyl products, exclusive to Harrods, which have my locks swooning in love at first sight. I kid you not. The transformation was immediate and obvious.
Meeting Caroline Greyl, daughter of the creators and founders of the brand was like a breathe of fresh air. She wasted no time at all in diagnosing my hair with the exclusive Microviewer, a fabulous piece of technology that magnifies the hair and skin on the scalp by 200 times. Interestingly Caroline starts the diagnosis with the scalp and spent much time looking at it and analysing it before she moved into the condition and state of the hair. Now, we’ve all used magnifying mirrors to look at our hair (split ends, anyone?) but nothing can really prepare you for the sight of your scalp and hair magnified 200 times! (If you’re squeamish, look away now!)
|Hair, magnified 200 times|
Once you get over the shock, it’s actually quite absorbing as you see things you had no idea were there. In my case, had you asked me about my scalp I’d have said it was normal with no problems. In actual fact, it was rather dry, irritated and looked like I’d been too harsh on it. No surprises re my hair. It’s in definite need of nourishment. Dry, damaged, dehydrated….need I go on?
|Yikes! The scalp, also magnified 200 times.|
The Leonor Greyl philosophy and method is based on prescribing problem specific, solution-giving natural products. So after analysing my hair and its needs, Caroline recommended the iconic Palm Oil as a pre-wash treatment to leave in overnight, a very gentle shampoo, and a nourishing conditioner.
Then….ta da!! I had my hair styled by none other than Johnnie Sapong. I might never wash my hair again now that it has been touched and tweaked by the supremo himself! (Do I sound a little startsruck? Perhaps, but you would too if you knew who he is! Check out his website to feast your eyes on the famous tresses he has tended to.)
Johnnie took a good look at my hair, restyled it and recommended some products from the Leonor Greyl range to help me achieve the look I hankering after. With the silicone-free serum, my hair was transformed from frizzy and disobedient to soft, shiny and smooth. I was sold.
|Johnnie Sapong is actually styling my hair! I faint!!|
I’ve since tried the the Palm Hair Oil twice, and actually can’t believe the difference it has made to my hair. It’s now looking and feeling like the hair I’ve always dreamed of – and that’s after only two uses. I’m soon to try out the Jasmine Hair Mask, and will report back later in how that goes, and really looking forward to trying out my prescribed shampoo and conditioner.
