Hello Friends! I have teamed up with m a k e , one of Australia's coolest cruelty-free hair care brand to give you a chance to win a YEAR'S SUPPLY OF FABULOUS m a k e haircare and styling products. The competition is on my instagram (click here @teacupofmakeup) and the rules are super easy. The T&Cs are below. I thought I would also give a quick run down on the m a k e products that I have tried and which are included in the giveaway!
The Active Ingredients of the shampoo are: Wheat Proteins and Silk Proteins. I do like this shampoo. It smells of lemon and minty. It does lather up quite well and rinses out fairly quickly which is what I look for in shampoos. I've used this before and I did feel like my hair looked softer and easier to manage.
The Active Ingredients of the conditioner are the same: Wheat Proteins and Silk Proteins. One of the cute things about the shampoo and conditioner is that it says "Bear Hugs for Hair" on the bottled. That is super cute and I always feel all warm and cozy inside when I read it. The conditioner has a next texture. Not too thick and not too thin. It also smells of lemons and mint from the citric acid and the limonene (derived from the oil of citrus plants). I find the scent quite refreshing. The conditioner is also easy to rinse out and I generally leave it on for about 2-3 minutes and my hair feels silky smooth and hydrated.
m a k e also has shampoos and conditioners for coloured hair (called "vibrant") and blonde hair (click here to check them out).
The Active Ingredients are: Sage, Slik Amino Acids, Linden, Birch, Yarrow & Hydrolysed Wheat Protein. Let's just say, it is like a detox for your hair. It removes the buildup from products and helps your hair recover from damage that may have been caused by bleaching/hair dyes. I like to use this as a hair mask. After I have washed my hair, I apply this and put a clean shower cap on and wait for this to do its magic. I've only tried this a few times and I have liked the results. This one smells more like a vanilla milkshake to me. Delish huh?
PROTECTED SPRAY The Active Ingredients are: Wheat extract, eucalyptus, juniper, yarrow, thyme & kernel extract. I always recommend using a heat protecting spray if you are using heating tools to style your hair. You apply it on dry hair before you use your heat tools. I like to spray this on my semi-dry hair before I blow dry it. It does have a fruity scent. The scent seems to go away after a while.
MAKE SALTY SPRAY I've used a number of sea salt sprays from other brands before. Obviously, m a k e's has sea salt, sea moss and sea kelp to absorb moisture and nourish. Its formula also gives your hair that "i just came from a day at the beach" look. I did not find this drying and it did not seem to clump my hair together (which has happened with other ones I've tried). Overall, I thought it was a nice product to give my hair some texture but honestly, sea salt spray is on of the few styling products that I rarely reach for. You can spritz onto dry or damp hair before styling. This one has a fairly strong scent, it smells like the beach to me. It was fairly easy to wash out
MAKE BIG DUST
This is one of my favourite products from m a k e. It is a very light almost light as a feather very fine powder (see photo below). It is loaded with silica silylate and is suitable-for-all-hair-types. I dust a little of this into the roots of my dry hair and it creates lift and volume. It is perfect for doing an "up-do" and also if you are just wanting some texture and volume. This one also has that lemon and mint scent and contains citric acid and the limonene. I love this for that messy "I just spent several hours in bed making love" look. Very sexy. I found this easy to rinse out and while it did tangle my hair a little, it was not hard to work out the kinks. I do note that my hair tangles very easily on its own.
