Tuesday Treat: Brazilian Chocolate and Keratin hair treatment

October 25, 2010


The Pampered Pauper tried out a Brazilian Chocolate and Keratin hair treatment at Eleven Hair in Mayfair and we have to say we’re impressed. It’s a friendly salon, with a cool vibe, run by some cool blokes. My stylist Becky was great, friendly and informative. Treatment takes two and a half hours, and has three stages. First […]

Makeover Monday: organic hair reconstructing treatment

September 27, 2010


Tints of Nature Reconstructing Treatment. This is all organic and lovely and contains vitamin B5 and wheat protein. It’s meant to be used on a fortnightly basis, to soothe and nourish dry and frizzy hair. So, exactly my hair, then? This is an intense moisturising treatment, and it really worked. It smells nice, and was easy […]

Puro Spa, W1H

March 21, 2010


A beauty parlour in West London, which does everything. I had a great, soothing facial, which was at least an hour but felt like it lasted for ages. They also gave me a soothing footbath and then while I relaxed in that they cut my hair and plucked my eyebrows. They also do massages, manicures and pedicures. It […]

Tantrum Hair Salon, SW10

February 7, 2010

It looks […]

Product: Frangipani Moisture Melt

January 17, 2010


Elemis This amazing Frangipani Monoi Moisture Melt oil from Elemis is one of my favourite products. You can use it as a super rich moisturiser, or as a lovely treatment for a DIY manicure and pedicure – especially good if you pop it on and do the washing up. But my favourite way to use […]

Product: Oleo Curl

November 18, 2009


Kerastase Nutritive A great soothing spray which nourishes and softens curly or dry hair. I popped it on after washing my hair and it left my tresses silky and smooth – much better than the sticky weight you get from Frizz Ease or cheaper high street options. It lasts quite a long time, and you don’t need […]

Neville Hair & Beauty, SW1X

September 17, 2009


De-Mistyfying Treatment When someone told me about a treatment which would turn my dry barnet into a silky mane, I knew I HAD to try it. I’ve been blessed with not bad hair, it’s got a lovely natural curl to it, and even self-highlights in the sun; but the payback is that it’s big and […]
