Grow Gorgeous Hair Care - First Impressions: Plus, Black Friday Offer!

Grow Gorgeous is a haircare brand that encourages growth, thicker and better conditioned hair. It's a brand I've always wanted to try but never got round to it despite their recent arrival in the larger Boots stores. The ex Deciem brand seems to have a bit of a cult following amongst bloggers. They all seem to love it! So, to say I'm really pleased to be given the opportunity to give my hair some much-needed tlc is an understatement.

I was never blessed with a thick mane of hair - you know, the type that you see in shampoo adverts. At best, it was fine but lots of it. Now it's at that menopausal stage where its thinner and looks very ageing (especially around the hairline). Plus I'm also noticing the speed in growth has slowed down a little, especially this year.

However, the one thing I've always suffered with is this topsy-turvy volume where its frizzy at the ends and greasy at the roots/scalp, so, this alone never gave it a cat in hell's chance of achieving the dream hair! And yet I still continued with this pursuit going backwards and forwards of growing my hair to only chop it back to mid-length and regret it again. Why? I have no idea? As half the time I just stick it up in a bun or in a pony tail anyway. Are things are about to change?

Can we just get my silliness out of the way first, and admire the gorgeous packaging of these. Isn't the little cloud design featuring these adorable characters just the cutest thing!!!

Sounds like my back-combing days will be over! I am more than ready to plump up those skinny strands!

This shampoo comes in a thick gel consistency that whilst washing gives the impression that you need to add more water to gain extra lather rather than add more product. I got to admit, I was a little worried because it cleansed my hair so well and felt like I had extra hair (weird, I know), I though it was going to leave my hair really tangled. But I was amazed how well the leave-in conditioner (something I never use due to worrying about greasiness) helped my brush glide through the hair, leaving it super soft and smelling lovely! Another big thing I noticed was the amount of hair strands that had gone down the plug hole and that was also left on my brush. Now normally, I'm left with enough hair strands to be able to make a toupee out of. Haha! But this time, there was hardly any! Let's hope it stays that way.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Butylene Glycol, Caffeine, Propanediol, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Maltodextrin, Glycerin, PPG-26-Buteth-26, Acetyl Tetrapeptide-3, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate, Arginine, Glycine, Lactic Acid, Gluconolactone, Zinc Chloride, Calcium Gluconate, Trifolium Pratense Flower Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Glycine Soja Germ Extract, Triticum Vulgare Germ Extract, Larix Europaea Wood Extract, Pisum Sativum Extract, Camelia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Dextran, Pentylene Glycol, Urea, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Metabisulphite, Sodium Benzoate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Parfum (Fragrance), Cinnamyl Alcohol, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Linalool, Limonene, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde.

The original version has received exceptionally good reviews, so considering this is their more intense formulation, this leaves me very excited! The size I have is actually the 90ml that's currently on offer, which I'll give you all the details and links in just a mo.

This is a product that you apply daily. The formulation comes in a pipette style bottle which you apply directly to the scalp before massaging in. I love the scent to this as it feels a bit like perfume for your hair. Now this will leave the root area a little damp for a few minutes but without leaving it greasy. But because of lack of time I have in the mornings, I've decided to apply this a night time instead. I shall hopefully give you an update after Christmas!


As it's Black Friday week, Grow Gorgeous have decided to join in with the offers! Yay!

The Hair Growth Serum is currently on offer priced at £45.00 for 90ml, instead of the original size of 60ml.  So, you actually get 50% extra for the same price!

There is also an offer on the Full Bodied Volume Shampoo 190ml and Leave-in Conditioner 120ml Duo  for £28.00 (normally £31.00).

Plus, there is also a selection of fabulous Christmas gifts sets that will make the ideal present for a loved one. Do check them out! Happy Shopping!
