Mark Hill - Two out of Three aint bad

So we had the sun, we had the fun.  I enjoyed days where my hair could air dry and be away from the shackles of the hair dryer - oh the liberation and the frizz -.  I did feel that my hair needed a little TLC so I headed into Boots to buy a deep conditioner... did I already have a deep conditioner ?  of course I did but I wanted something new and fantastic and I found it.
  
I don't know why I walked past all the huge displays of hair brands and stopped at Mark Hill with its fabulously pun intended MiracOILicious 2 Minute Intensive Treatment but stop I did and once I opened and had a sniff at the wonderful concoction I knew it would be coming home with me.  It smells like sweets - or summer sweets like 10 penny bags with a faint hint of liquorice (only a hint mind you cause I am not a fan of liquorice).  The conditioner claims that you only have to leave it in for 2 minutes for beautiful hair - I have never used a watch :) but it definitely works and in less than 2 minutes.  My problem would be putting too put product in because it smells so feckin good.  If you have fine hair this could weigh your hair down slightly - just use less product.  After I have washed out the conditioner my hair is left with a slight memory of the fragrance - beautiful - but more importantly than that it feels wonderful and soft.  I felt my hair had dried out a little what with highlights in June and a bit of sun but this restores it and feels like a lovely treat but one you can pop in when your in the shower - no messing around for 15 minutes or putting a towel on your head, just pop it on wash yourself or shave your legs and bam your done. 
I shall sandwich the bad in between the two good products - Next up is Beach Babe which is a sea salt spray, to be honest with you its more of a "its not you its me" situation with this product.  I love that wavy hair beachy look but I hate my hair to feel crunch or full of product and alas as with most Sea Salt sprays this makes my hair feel horrible and gritty and dirty.  I used it only once and as a rule on this blog we NEVER speak about a product having used it only once but I felt it made me look more like Crazy Cat Lady from the Simpsons than a beach babe.  I met my friend when I had this in and her first words to me were "what's up with your hair" which is not really what anybody wants to hear.  Of course I have one of two sea salt sprays at home (I will never learn) and I have come to the conclusion that they are just not for me.  I have discovered that if I plat my hair when its wet and let it dry I get the look of beachy waves without the crunchy feel.
Last up from the trio (no I didn't pick these up on 3 for 2 but there was money off on the products - Boots is great for that.  I think they might be on 3 for 2 at the moment) is the Sun, Sea, Frizz- Free Anti Humidity Spray which I picked up cause as the heat went on my hair got bigger and bigger and I was about to discover how Marge Simpson's hair stood on the top of her head (lot of Simpson's references today - don't know why).  I would use this fine mist like spray after my hair was done and it was so fine I almost thought no product was coming out - until I sprayed it in my face to check, I know I am an idiot.  The spray is very fine and delicate but it seems to do the trick because my hair didn't frizz up and it added a small amount of shine to the hair.  Its not the hair spray for you if you want strong, ridged hold or to lock a style in place, this is more a finishing spray but one that keeps humidity at bay.

I picked these up in Boots where they were around the 10 euro mark each (they were on special offer with money off) I cant find a link for them on Boots.ie so I cant find an exact price (sorry).  If I was to pick one product it would be the MiracOILicious 2 Minute Intensive Treatment I am currently using it as my conditioner every other wash it smells AMAZING. Sometimes you just want a quick affordable product that works and this is it. Pin It
