Lidl Ireland are just excelling on every angle of the beauty range there banging out at the moment! I’m currently saving mad and so I have a budget every week but the prices they have for these new beauty products are just amazing and too hard to resist! I picked up all of the hair care Macadamia Oil range just to try out and review for you all before you part with your money 😉 I got the Shampoo, Conditioner, Bb Cream and Hair Oil Serum as you can see in the photo below 🙂
For the 4 products it all came to under €12! If that’s not a bargain then I don’t know what is! I’ve used them all twice a week for 5 weeks, the Shampoo and Conditioner are now gone (and I use ALOT OF PRODUCT) and it seems I haven’t even made a dent in the Bb cream & Hair Oil Serum! I find that because of the oil in each product my hair is a lot easier to tame and goes more curly now then frizzy which is a big thumbs up in my book! My hair feels really really nice as of I’ve been applying treatments when I haven’t so that must be down to the be cream and oil 😍 My hair is thick , a bit dry and quite unruly so I use 3 pumps of the Bb Cream and 4-5 of the oil depending and I massage it all over! I would Definetly recommend if you find your hair is already oily or quite thin, not to apply this much product and to just keep it to the ends of your hair to avoid any extra oiliness on top 🙂 I use them while my hair is damp right after my shower but I also use the oil before or after straightening my dry hair if I want a shine or some extra softness 🙂
Heres my hair right after using all of the products 🙂 It may still look fuzzy to some but my hair is so thick when it’s fuzzy I look like Mufasa from the lion king so my hair below is actually so tame compared😂!
Todays blog post is all about the hair! If you haven’t heard about Platinum Hair Extensions before then your in for a treat 😉 not only are the hair extensions amazing quality but there also a great price! Thats the reason I went and trained to become a hair extensionist with this company! They really just ticked all the boxes!
Ive had them in my own hair three times and each time ive opted for the pre bonded method! They lasted for a whole 6months on the three occasions like how amazing is that? No clipping in and out the extensions everyday day!! It was just exactly what I waned because I’ve always loved long hair! Here are some pics while I had mine in.
Now im going to explain to you about each method 🙂
Pre Bonded Extensions are applied with a keratin glue tip to individual sections of your own hair! This gives a life like feel to the extensions as they move just as your own hair would because there not applied in Bulk! The glue tip is in the shape of a ‘U’ and then a few strands of your own hair are put inside that you, the iron is pressed on this to melt the bond and then rolled so it totally wraps around your own hair 🙂 the actual bond on the extension is whatever the extension colour is so it’s super easy to hide these extensions as they just blend seamlessly into your own hair! they are super for holding and will Definetly last you 4-6 months! You will have a few strands fall out but that’s just normal as your own hair sheds all the time but I suppose you wouldn’t take any notice yet when you have extensions in you do! There’s not a HUGE aftercare regime needed but you do have to take care of your extensions if you want to keep them and your own hair in great condition! For example, you need to take some time every week or so even if it’s just while watching tv to go through your own head and just seperate any bonds that are tangled because of your loose hair wrapping around them 🙂 it honestly doesn’t take long and it’s not at all hard work but if it’s not done then that’s when the trouble starts! You could end up with matting and it will just knot ontop of knots because of not doing this small step! Treatments are fabulous too help keep the silkines of the extensions and to keep your own hair in great condition too 👌 here’s what they look like applied .
Micro bead extension are put in using a bead and the hair is then clamped using a players with your own hair inbetween to secure the extension! Some people think that these are better for the hair condition and safer but honestly there is no difference towards the condition of your own hair! There is a bit more aftercare on this method As with using beads, they slip so will need readjusting every few weeks depending on the client 🙂 you can still get 4-6 months out of the micro beads also but with touch ups! Of course you will get the same fall out with these as the pre bonded. If the hair on the client is too thin then these will not suit because they will slip a lot easier from the hair strand! Here’s what they look like applied below. The beads used come in three different colours, black brown and blonde so they may not be the exact shade of the hair and therefor are a bit harder to hide!
Platinum is based in dublins graft on street and so it only takes a day or so for my extension order to come straight to my front door! The price for a full head of these extensions are €299 and are often on special offers to help you out even more on the price👌
Here’s a few well known people in Ireland who adore there platinum extensions. Blogger Terrie McEvoy, YouTuber Dramatic Mac, Ruth Flood and Mr Cian Twomeys girlfriend Emily just to name a few!
