One of the great things in life that sustains my ability to breath is my consumption of milkshake, namely chocolate flavour Yazoo, or even just Tesco's own chocolate milk. I honestly can't get enough of the stuff. I have read that they say that drinking a milk based protein shake after you finish at the gym is supposed to be better than rehydrating with water - so I seem to have taken this notion one step further and applied to the idea that 'Louise, unless you consume this yummy Yazoo your blood will cease to flow in your veins...'. I'm strange, I know. But imagine my delight when a recent Glossybox contained a hair product by a new brand to me, Milk_Shake Haircare. I squealed with excitement - can I now apply my favourite lifeblood to my hair, and it will smell and feel delightful and I won't get funny looks...ok!
I'm slowly getting more and more into haircare, and by that I mean using fancier shampoos and treatments, and not just reaching for what's on offer in Boots. I've tried Mythic Oil, leave in conditioner, glossing spray, finishing spray, every thing under the sun, but never a foam/mousse based product because I've never found one that looked right, or smelled right, or did as it said on the cannister. (I just took a minute to laugh at 'mousse based'. No moose were harmed in the writing of this review! Poor moose!)
Milk_Shake have the answer to all of my mousse problems. Their Conditioning Whipped Cream is a treasure. I'm secretly loving the fact that I'm applying a non-artificial vanilla scented, milkshake based, whipped cream mousse to my hair and not feeling gross. Yum.
The brand is sets out to 'enhance and maintain the natural beauty of your hair' and 'offers the benefits of milk and fruit for wellbeing and beauty' through a range of fabulous products to suit any hair type or problem. Next on my wish list is their shampoo and conditioner, and a treatment mask!
The actual product itself is designed as a leave in conditioner for all hair types. It nourishes your hair and leaves it feeling super soft and glossy. The mousse doesn't even feel too heavy, and it melts into the hair beautifully, leaving no residue or a film behind.
To apply Milk_Shake's mousse I usually shake the canister first, then apply a golf ball sized amount to my hand (one of the great things is watching the mousse expand in your hand!) and then work it into my scalp and ends of my hair. Do this every time you've washed your hair and then leave it to soak in, no rinsing required, and let it work it's magic. I absolutely love it!
It's practically good enough to drink...but don't do that, find a real milkshake instead!
You can buy Milk_Shake from Feel Unique, Beauty Bay and Look Fantastic. Prices vary, but the Conditioning Whipped Cream ranges from £11-£14 for 200ml depending on where you shop.
