Spring/Summer is now in the shops and the weather will soon be changing too. So what shall we put on our nails to keep up with the fashion? I’ve seen monochrome, stripes and pastels all featuring heavily. With it being SO cold outside I’m not ready to take on pastels, but monochrome and stripes are a great transition from winter.

I’ve mixed it up a bit from plain monochrome to stripe monochrome. Grey and silver tones are another way to incorporate contrasts or go mad and choose any contrasting shades.

Pastels will be next on my nail art list….hmmm….what designs shall I do? Any suggestions?

In my forever quest for that ‘life changing’ product, I have decided to push the boundaries and try new and radical products which are so easily available to us….if we know where to look. This year not only will I be blogging about nail art but also about beauty and health products.

I started testing this product back in November 2012. The shampoo is called Eqyss Equine Mega Tek Equine Re-builder. The product is created for use on horses, specifically for mains and hoofs. The idea of this shampoo is to encourage hair to grow quicker, quickly creating length. The volume side comes in as the shampoo keeps your hair roots healthy therefore preventing loss of hair. In turn this gives your hair a fuller look.

So with all this said, does this magic shampoo actually work. Well… I have very thin, limp, brittle hair. My solution has always been going down the hair extension root, to fulfil my dream of having thick long hair. This is a great quick fix but not a long term solution, due to cost and potential damage to my own hair. So, I bought the Eqyss shampoo costing me approximately £20 from an equestrian website in the states. I started using this in November 2012 and I wasn’t convinced at first. On my first go I decided to leave the Shampoo in for 30 mins on my roots, I then washed it off with the shampoo and followed with a conditioner. My hair felt so full of product, it was limp and almost stiff at the root. After realising I should either leave on roots and wash off with another shampoo or just wash my hair with this shampoo I quickly got into a better routine with it. Since using this shampoo I have also had 3 inches cut off and I can honestly say my hair has never felt better.

Having a good cut has obviously really helped, but my hair actually feels thicker, fuller and is growing at a much better rate. The ultimate test came when my hairdresser commented on how I was hardly shedding any hair after a hair wash prior to my blow dry. Normally I would wash my hair and brush while it was wet to find lots of hair shedding. I had noticed this had been happening less and when my hairdresser noticed it I knew it must be true.

I’m not saying this shampoo will give you long, thick hair over night but it has seriously helped my hair and it may possibly of been the best £20 I ever spent!
