Current Hair Care Up-Date

Hello Lovelies!
I think it is time for a current hair care favourites post :) 
Here is an update of the products I currently love!

I love Island's Natural Shampoo from Aubrey organics - it is a very rich shampoo with lovely golden coloured herbal pieces in it. It moisturises the hair very thoroughly. In combination with Jojoba and Aloe Conditioner - great! - these two will be the death of dry and frizzy hair. The downside: if used too often in a row, they will weigh my hair down and leave an oily film. 

That is why I use the Balea 5%  Urea Shampoo and Shower Gel. The Balea Shampoo doubles as a body wash is very mild and will remove any film or oiliness. The downside is that there are not a lot of nutrients - so I will just use this shampoo maybe once or twice a month as a clearing shampoo

I have been going to the gym on a very regular basis every second day, since I gained some weight over the holidays :D  For the gym the very affordable Balea Professional Shampoo and Conditioner are a great easy solution. I am currently using the brown shampoo and conditioner because I love the smell of these so much - they smell like almonds,caramel and chocolate :) It is a heavenly smell. This duo also contains brown sparkling pigments and helps to intensify my auburn tones.
From the Balea Professional line I have also used the Repair Hair Care Line and the Oil Repair Line - I do like all of these three versions although I love the brown series the most. Please beware that this line will dry your hair out on the long run because it contains PEG and film-bildners that coat your hair. The reason why I like to use it occasionally is because I get very easily detangled hair which is great after a quick Gym workout. 

Now my favourite oil is the Weleda Rose Oil - it is a great oil as a leave-in and deep conditioning treatment before you wash your hair. The smell is wonderful very herbal and not too sweet or flowery. It smells like wild roses. It is a great body oil as well gets absorbed easily and will leave your skin very soft and glowing! It is a very pricey oil and I usually get it for my birthday as a gift :)

It contains mainly jojoba oil, sweet almond oil and rosehip oil. A lot of cheaper organic oils are based on sunflower seed oil and do not contain these high quality organic oils. If you buy a rose oil make sure you check the main ingredients to ensure that your rose oil actually contains rose <3 .

The ingredients are wonderful as well:

Flechtwerk: Review and Preview 2015 - 2016

Hello Lovelies! 

Looking back on the last year, so many things have happened in my life and hair just became a random aspect that was there but nothing I focused on. On the contrary, I cut back from 115 cm to 92 cm! Thigh length back to hip / waist length. I do like my new look, it is easier to manage but my up-do's became smaller and well my all time favourite braid is not great anymore because of the amount of layers that i got. 

This is a picture during summer before the new cut:

Beyond classic length, super long hair during summer.

Now this is my current length:

Layered new Hair Cut

I do have to admit that i enjoy my shorter tresses a lot. I think the length I was most happy with was about  1m. I still have 8 cm to go as a goal for 2016. About the layers I am not sure.. I love them when my hair is down or in a half up, but whenever I am trying an up-do they become  a nuisance..

This is how my hair looks now when it is all up:
Messy Up Do ficcare Primavera Red

Goals I want to reach in 2016:
  • More length! 1 meter is my holy-grail hair length I think :o)
  • Add more moisture with my Aloe-Vera treatments.
  • Make more hair products! I am excited to do my first solid shampoo bars :)
  • Add content on a regular basis.
  • Learn more hairstyles - e.g. french rope braiding and french fishtail braiding. Maybe start a Youtube Channel?  
I am content with my natural hair colour at the moment. They are auburn and have some copper lights added by my rinsable goldenred toner that I use (Accent, Feuermohn).

I am excited to read the girls hair posts! Have a look at Heike at Haselnussblond , Wuscheline , Lenja our forrest fairy , Nessa from Haartraum and our Mermaid at Nixenhaar

Hello Lovelies!

I am very freshly and newly on Instagram!I know I am probably the last one in the blogging world to join ^^ I was super happy to connect with fellow bloggers and long hair ladies and I saw that we nearly all have something in common besides the love of long-hair.
And it is the love for cats :D I do have a black tomboy called Chuck and that little guy is a joyful furry snuggle ball. I am excited to use Instagram - it is a world full of magical photos for sure :)
My favourite accounts are the one's of my Flechtwerk girls, @nixenhaar ( Bobby has two silver tabby cats BTW! They are adorable!), @wuscheline (also two little guys), Lenja @siri.lenja (two tomboys as well!) , @haselnussblond Heike with a little wolf baby, Heika has a great second account as well - all about healthy living and recipes which is @foodforhair_ and Nessa @haartraum. 
Oh and psssst I have a picture of my shorter hair on Instagram as well, it was taken during the New Year's Eve Night.
