Hydrated hair with Salon Science*

Hey my loves!

Sorry I've been away for a few weeks, working in retail during Black Friday sales is beyond torturous. Also slight life update: I've been on Roaccutane for 2 months now and my skin is DRYER THAN THE SAHARA! If you don't know, Roaccutane/Accutane is a dermatologist-prescribed drug that can cure acne. It's got an amazing success rate but comes with a list down to your elbow and back up again, of side effects. So far mine have been fairly manageable, the most obvious one being dry lips, skin and hair; SO I'm focusing on giving my hair as much moisture and nourishment as possible. (Roaccutane can make it prone to thinning, breakages, and dry scalps... not so pleasant)



I was kindly sent some products from Salon Science, in particular their Hydraluxe range, and they've been an absolute godsend these past 6 weeks! I'm quite lucky in that my hair is naturally quite thick so I typically only wash it every three days (3rd day I'm dousing myself in dry shampoo mind). Now as my body isn't producing ANY oil, my hair/roots look pretty darn glorious for at least five days, and then I just wash it out of guilt.. is that weird?


Anyway, the idea behind Salon Science is really cool and innovative, and the company claims that  they "harness the power of plant stem-cell technology" to form a product with all the benefits of that specific plant. There are four ranges that target problem areas through using a key plant-based ingredient e.g, Hair Loss with Organic Pea Sprout, Repair and Radiance with GSPT-Swiss Grape etc
I was given the choice of which range would best fit my needs so I went for Hydration & Scalp Relief, with Aquateen Organic Cactus, (because I need all the moisture I can get right now.)


Sticking to the same hair-washing routine; I use a purple shampoo first, rinse and then follow with the Hydraluxe Shampoo - which in all honestly just seems like any other shampoo, but definitely makes my hair feel extra squeaky clean. Oh and if you're wondering which purple shampoo I'm using, I'm not going to mention the name as it's doing sweet F A for my hair.. *eye roll* but I'm thinking of doing a "Best & Worst" silver/purple shampoo post, so let me know if you're interested!


Next up is the star of the show, the Hydrasorb Intensive Masque. Honestly this stuff is heavenly! The whole range has the same fresh-peppermint scent, but this one has a sweetness to it which I love. Plus when I use the mask, the scent fills the shower-room and makes all my airways feel clear and tingly. So yummy! The consistency is also unlike anything I've used before. It's super thick and balmy, to the extent that you have to rub it between your fingers to melt it a little, so you can get a big ol' coating on your hair.

I put a few generous splodges between my hands (great technical terminology, I know) and cover my hair from root to tip, paying slightly more attention to my roots. The mask is recommended for one use a week, but as I only wash my hair every 6 ish days, I've been using it at every wash! I'm kind of addicted to that shiny-glossy hair feeling I get with it, and it actually makes me look forward to washing my hair - which for a lazy gal like me, is a big thing!

I usually leave mine to work it's magic for 5 minutes or so, and spend the time belting out various songs from Disney films or musicals. Right now my fave is 'Journey to the Past' from Anastasia FYI



If your hair isn't silky enough already, follow up with the conditioner, which I focus on the ends of my hair. Overall my hair has never been softer and shinier and I've tried plenty of hair treatments from Kerastase, Herbal Essences to pure old Coconut Oil! It really holds it's glossy look for a good few days after washing too, meaning there have been sassy hair flicks a plenty..

I've not tested out the Hydrasoothe Cooling Spray enough to give it a fair review, but it's aimed at soothing dry scalps and bringing back moisture to dehydrated hair; so I'm looking forward to taking it away on my next holiday with me!


If you're interested in trying out any of the Salon Science range for yourself, it's available in Boots and prices range from £10-£35. Let me know if you have used it before, I'd love to know how you like it! What are your current haircare essentials?

  6. I've never even seen this in Boots but then again I stick to my tried and trusted brands! It's amazing that you've found a product that works so well for your hair. I've found that using a clarifying shampoo once a week gets all of the gunk out of my hair. That masque seems very impressive too!

Ooh interesting, I'm always looking for a new shampoo/conditioner duo for my hair because I'm just never 100% satisfied - like you, my hair looks great first day, meh second day and I'm lucky to get away with third day completely smacked with dry shampoo! I'll have a look out for this range, thank you for the review :) and yes, I'd be interested in seeing a best/worst for purple shampoo! x
