Luxcurly Auto-Rotating Curling Iron


I love having curls in my hair, it adds fullness and a bit of glam to any look! I spend half of my time trying to keep my unnatural (and extremely high maintenance) red locks the right colour, and tend to lack a bit in the styling department. Luxcurly has seen me up my game significantly! I currently have two other traditional curling irons (and a straightener) that have been banished to the bottom of my bathroom cupboard to make way for this auto rotating curling iron – the easiest I have every used. The pictured curling iron is the “lux natural” iron, with a wider barrel than the original. It has temperature control, and the greatest feature – directional buttons – that spin the barrel for you to stop you having to contort your arm awkwardly as you curl. Why didn’t anyone think of this sooner? Simply clip in a section of hair and the buttons do all the work, spinning it evenly, while the tourmaline ceramic barrel ensures fast and even heat to your strands. It is super easy to get used to using and is a great purchase if you’ve tried and given up on traditional curling irons. With a bit of hair spray my curls set and last all day – and I ever have great “day after” curls!

I have been using mine for the past three months and am obsessed! I have long, thick hair and this makes curling my hair so much less of a chore.

You can purchase Luxcurly online and they retail for $119.00.

Goldwell Dualsenses Colour Extra Rich Range


I spoke about these products from Goldwell very briefly in the past but as I am now getting to the bottom of the bottle I have to write a bit more about it.

Formulated with pomegranate extract and brilliance system technology The Goldwell Extra Rich Range smells amazing (like Lychee and Blackcurrent) but more importantly, does amazing things to your hair.

The Color Extra Rich Shampoo & Conditioner work together to stop colour fade – and with my dyed red hair I will take any steps I can to prolong my colour. After washing, my hair is smooth and silky and I have noticed that since I’ve been using it my hair is needing to be trimmed before the colour has to be re done (normally it’s the other way around!).

While the Shampoo & Conditioner work great, the pink blobby substance you can see on the right of the picture is my absolute holy grail product – the Color Extra Rich 60 Second Treatment. The treatment is extremely thick but spreads easily in wet hair, and is by far the most effective 60 second treatment I’ve used. Normally hair feels good, but very similar to how it feels after conditioner with most short treatments. As much as I’d love to relax for 15 minutes with a hot towel on my head washing my long hair is enough of a chore as it is so 60 seconds will do it for me! The treatment leaves hair silky smooth for days following and with a beautiful healthy shine. This product is pretty much the closest I get to having that just left the salon feeling at home and I absolutely love it!

The Color Extra Rich Shampoo & Conditioner retails for $25.45 and the Color Extra Rich 60 Second Treatment for $26.95. You can purchase Goldwell at selected salons.

Unico Formulations Intensive Shampoo & Conditioner Review

Unico Formulations is a brand I’d never tried before, but I have been absolutely loving what it has been doing for my hair lately! Unico is a brand made in Australia, with all natural ingredients – giving you great hair by using pure plant ingredients as well as essential oils and vitamins.

I’ve been using the Intensive Shampoo & Conditioner which is suited for chemically treated, coloured or ageing hair.

Unico 2

The key ingredients in this range are Lavender, Rosemary and Cyprus, as well as Vitamins B5 and Vitamin E. These ingredients help to maintain moisture in the hair and revitalise it from chemical treatments. They also contain UV filters – perfect for protecting coloured hair in summer.


The scent of these are amazing – beautiful and natural and part of why I love using them is it makes you feel lovely and relaxed!

The Conditioner is a standout, you can really feel the nourishment it gives your hair and it has noticeably slowed the fading of my hair colour.

Unico products are available at Adore Beauty and in Selected Salons – find out more at the Unico website. The Intensive Shampoo & Conditioner retail for $22 each.

I received these Unico products as consideration for review, all opinions are my own.
