Yesterday saw the launch of Windle & Moodie's new haircare line, a 22 piece range devised by hair experts Paul Windle and Neil Moodie. A week or so ago I popped into their award-winning salon in London's Covent Garden to learn about the new products. I was particularly excited about this launch as I complimented one of the PR girls on her amazing hair only a few days before and she had let me into her secret being Windle & Moodie.
I was pleased to hear that the range is eco-friendly, being free from propylene glycol and parabens and the infusion of tea blends in the shampoos, conditioners and treatments sounded intriguing. Apparently teas nurture, protect and promote shine in hair so I was keen to this out - so for the past few weeks I've been using the Healthy Head (and Hair) Treatment Shampoo (£19.50) once a week as I've previously been told I have a congested and sensitive scalp and you only get pretty hair if you have a healthy head. I've then followed with Nourishing Conditioner (£18) which is best suited to dry and colour treated hair which contains keratin along with green tea and cocoa butter to help repair damaged locks. After I used these products for the first time my hair felt so soft and looked shiny(I even had to tweet about it!) I was really impressed. The fragrance is quite herbal, due to the tea infusions and smells like it is doing good to my hair as weird as that sounds, which I think is due to the eucalyptus in the shampoo and the cocoa butter in the conditioner.
I was also recommended to try the Intense Treatment Masque (£29) as my hair does get dry but I like to get volume too which oils can weigh down. As I had loved the shampoo and conditioner, I was expecting great things. The masque is super thick, like a body butter in texture, and I layered it on and left for the recommended 15 minutes then rinsed off. I was expecting my comb to slip through my hair as is normally does post hair mask, however, I was a little disappointed and found my hair actually felt quite tangly and even quite dry and dull the following day.
The final product I've tried is the Light Satin Hair Spray (£18) which I've loved, the fragrance smells fabulous and luxurious, not like most hairsprays and its inbuilt heat protectants means it is goof to use before and after heat-styling. Giving a light-medium hold it is good for everyday use and is easy to brush out too. My fav every-day-hairspray.
