NO ANIMALS WERE HURT FOR THIS BLONDIE!

May 03, 2016

How to maintain shiny and light blond hair without harsh preparations is an ongoing every blonde girl's dilemma?!
Those who colour their hair, reach for the purple shampoo to take out the brassiness, whereas the ones with natural blond hair use shampoos with chamomile and lemon - to do the magic of lightning.
I've been using the John Frieda shampoo for the longest time, but I have decided its time to jump on the band wagon of cruelty free products and start using brands that are not tested on animals. After a little bit of research, here are the two products that I've been using lately.

SLO:
Kako obdržati lase svetle in sijoče na najbolj preprost način, je večna dilema vsake blondinke.

Tiste, ki si lase barvajo, poleg navadnega, posegajo še po vijoličnih šamponih, ki jih enkrat tedensko vtrejo v lase in s katerim iz svojih las izpirajo sive podtone. Naravne blondinke pa rade (poleg nastavljanja sončnim žarkom) posegamo po šamponih z limono in kamilico, ki nam preko celega leta naravno svetlijo lase na naraven način.
Sama sem več let uporabljala šampon John Frieda, sedaj pa sem se odločila tudi sama stopiti v boj proti testiranju lepotnih izdelkov na živalih in se po nekaj raziskavah odločila za naslednja izdelka.
I found this chamomile L'erbolario shampoo that doesn't test on animals and decided to check it out, mainly because it lightens blonde hair due to its ingrediants. I've been trying it out for a month and here's what I've found out.
- ABOUT THE SHAMPOO:
First things first - if you think of that nicely fragrant shampoo our mom's used to wash our hair with when we were kids, this is totally not the case with this one! Its smells like herbal tea, or that "natural" smell of cosmetics which we have totally forgotten about, due to over unnatural scented products we are bombarded with. Talking about smell, I have to say that this one sadly does contain parfume, which is weird cause the smell is very natural. The shampoo is transparent with a tint of yellow in it and does not foam too much, but gets the job done.
- USAGE:
After the second wash I already felt my hair being crispy clean, which is a sign the shampoo did a great job of taking out all the dirt and its something I really like, but its very hard to find nowadays. Before rinsing if off, I left it on my hair for about 5 min.
- RECOMMENDATIONS:  
I always felt like it dries my hair a bit, when it leaves them crispy clean, but when they dry out - this is totally not the case. I feel like my hair is actually getting lighter, while soy protein make sure the hair is protected with a film that gives them shine. With that being said, this can weight down thin hair a bit, but not significantly.

SLO:
Za L'erbolario šampon sem se moram priznati odločila zato, ker je namenjen svetlolasim, ter ker ne testira svojih izdelkov na živalih! Preizkušala sem ga dober mesec in tukaj so moje ugotovitve:
- O ŠAMPONU:
Je že res, da sestoji iz kamilice, a če ste ob tem pomislile na tisti nežen šampon, s katerimi so nam mame prale lase v otroštvu, to zagotovo ni to! =) Vonj je najlažje opisljiv, kot vonj bio kozmetike na katerega smo že davno pozabili, ob poplavi vseh mogočih "nenaravnih" in nasičenih parfumov. Mogoče celo spominja na zeliščne čaje, čeprav pa moram priznati, da sem ob pregledu sestavin vseeno našla parfum. Vsekakor pa vonj ni moteč, las ne odišavi tako, da ga vonjaš še naslednji dan, ter se nanj brez problema navadiš. Šampon je prozorne, a rahlo obarvane rumene barve, ki se ob stiku z vodo na laseh sicer peni, a ne pretirano, vseeno pa zares dobro opravi delo in lase dobro očisti.
- UPORABA:
Pri drugem izpiranju čutim tisto "škripanje" las, ki ti sporoča da je šampon opravil dobro delo in pusti lase resnično čiste, kar obožujem a najti šampon te vrste je danes prava redkost. Preden ga sperem pustim delovati na laseh slabih 5 min.
- PRIPOROČILA:
Na prvi občutek, imam občutek, da lase malce izsuši, a ko so suhi temu ni niti približno tako -le zares čisti so. Lasje počasi svetlijo, sojini proteini pa dodajo sijaj, ter na njih naredijo nežen zaščitni film (Kar zna predstavljati problem, če so lasje zelo tanki, saj jih lahko obteži).
My hair is not colored and it gets darker during the winter time, which is why I have also decided to test this Lush Marilyn hair mask to see if it really does everything that promises. Softness, shine, conditioned hair and gradually lighter hair - which is literally what every blond girl wants. Not to mention its vegan and like everything at Lush, its not tested on animals! =)

- ABOUT THE MASK:
I bet everyone knows that amazing feeling of weightless, soft and bouncy hair after coming out of the hair saloon, right? Well, I've been testing this hair mask for quite some time in various different versions (with/without conditioner, with oil treatment on the ends, with/without drying my hair) and always got the hair saloon result.
The mask is thick enough you can scoop it out of the jar with your hand. What I like to do is, pur it on Tangle teezer and spread it on my hair by combing it in and them rub it with my fingers at the end. One of the best things about the mask is that it works on dry hair. You can just rinse it off after a minimum of 20 min! Unfortunately this means you have to use more mask to cover your whole head, since the mask doesn't have much to stick to, but thats ok.
RECOMMENDATIONS:
As I've said before I dont colour my hair, which is why I dont need a mask for hair shine. But I feel like this one is quite nourishing and would give you some extra shine - if needed. I did noticed my hair getting lighter, I have to say. I use it once a week and I highly recommend it.

SLO:
Ker mi lasje preko zime precej potemnijo, sem se letos preden poletje nastopi želela preizkusiti Lush masko za lase, ki na prvi pogled obljublja prav vse, kar si blondinka želi. Obljublja mehkobo las, sijaj, ter naravno svetlenje las, poleg tega pa je še veganska! in kot vsi Lush izdelki tudi Marilyn ni testirana na živalih! :)
- O MASKI:
Poznate tisti občutek, ko pridete od frizerja in so lasje popolnoma breztežni, mehki in "leteči"? Po večih uporabah (s sicer istim šamponom za lase, a z balzamom in brez, s Kerastase tretmajem na konicah, s sušenjem s fenom ali ne) je rezultat pri meni vedno isti. Kot, da sem prišla iz frizerskega salona!
Maska je ravno prav goste teksture, da jo z z dlanjo zajemanjem iz lončka /še bolje jo je razporediti na Tangle teezer in nato z njim masko razporediti po laseh, s prsti pa na koncu le vtreti v lasišče.
Ena od najboljših stvari je to, da maska deluje na suhih laseh! Žal pa, zato nima prave oprijemljivosti na lasu, zato potrebuješ malo več proizvoda, da dejansko prekriješ vse lase, sploh če so malce daljši. Po 20 min delovanja, (lahko tudi dlje) lase našamponiram in končni rezultat je odličen! 
- PRIPOROČILA:
Maska sicer obljublja sijaj, a ker svojih las nisem nikoli barvala, moji lasje niso izsušeni, zato težko govorim o sijaju. Je pa maska precej hranilna zato ne dvomim v to, da bi lasem povrnila tudi sijaj, če bi ga potrebovali. Vsekakor pa vidno opazim svetlenje las, kar sem si zelo želela. Masko uporabljam enkrat na teden in jo zelo priporočam!

  1. Hello!

    I'm also a blogger. I blog about art/lifestyle and diy mostly. I was searching for beautiful style blogs that I enjoy so that I can expand my blog community. <3

    I'm looking for any blog-community building advice you could offer as well! I think it's more tough when one has their own domain; it's standalone from the community. I've heard of bloggers promoting content through blog listings like bloglovin', as well as sites where you can earn promotional opportunities for having good content content like Advowire (https://advowire.com//users/profile/new?referral_code=AW36707). Do you use any of these sites to promote content or to collaborate with other bloggers? Do you know of other sites/resources you'd like to recommend?

    Thank you so much for reading! Hope to hear from you. xox
