Boy oh boy...So there I was just browsing the internet when I stumbled across a gem of a story. It is on the Daily Mail website (visit it at your own risk) and it concerns a new survey into men and beauty products.
The bombshell of the story says that a third of British men have taken a sneeky dip into a woman's hair product arsenal and had a go themselves!
So, when you thought your hair straighteners and your expensive shampoo were safely tucked away, you thought the least of your worries was the man in your life dipping in and using them himself. Well, think again!
The survey spoke to 2000 men and found that one in ten use their partners makeup, with concealer being a particular favourite, while one third admitted to using something special on their hair.
Well, rather than tell them off for this, we are going to embrace the men's new found love of beauty products and suggest a hair care regime which will look after men and women alike!
Professional ShampooTo start off we need a nice professional shampoo. The shampoo needs to be suitable for 'all hair types' because, as we know, more than one person may start using it, and we don't want curly hair to be flattened, or straight hair to ruined!
We have gone for Senscience Balance Shampoo. Senscience is developed by the world renowned Shisheido Laboratories and is a range of hair products aimed at the salon professionals.
This shampoo is aimed at people with 'normal hair' and is suitable for everyday use. As far as we are concerned it is an excellent quality shampoo that will not only leave your hair soft and smooth but it will promote whatever style you are going for, whether you have long or short hair.
Professional Conditioner for HairConditioner is one which many men often shy away from, so this one will have to be something special. Well, we think we have found just the thing. Fudge Daily Mint Conditioner is a real beauty! This is one of my personal favourite products.
"Why?", I hear you cry. Well, Fudge Daily Mint is a wonderful range. It is fully professional, as we have come to expect from Fudge, but they have added mint. You might think this sounds crazy, but don't knock it 'til you've tried it.
Fudge Daily Mint Conditioner will leave your hair soft, moisturised and most importantly fully refreshed. I particularly love to use this conditioner after a long day at work or after a tough session at the gym. The mint in this conditioner is like an absolute breathe of fresh air. So take a deep breathe and love this wonderful conditioner!
Hair StylingFinally, it is time for you and your man to finish of your hair by styling it. Finding a hair styler that can be used by pretty much anyone is a tough one. There are so many products to choose from and most are specially made with a certain type of hair in mind.
After some careful thinking, we ended up choosing MOP Liquid Mousse. MOP stands for Modern Organic Products, so the first tick in the box is that it is a healthy, natural product.
This liquid mousse is super easy to apply and it's luxury texture to take to any type of hair. You will get full control of your style without going over the top. This mousse will just gently kiss your hair into style, rather than grabbing it and telling it where to stay!
Granted, if you are looking for a more defined style, this probably isn't the one for you, but if the man in your life insists on using your products, he can do a lot worse than this, and it washes out super-easy should he not like the end result!
So, there you have it, three lovely products for him and her! Let us know what you think...
