BEAUTY REVIEW: Muk Hair Care for a winter revamp

Dramatically changing your hair colour is not something to be taken lightly. Besides the obvious management of regrowth, fading colour and fortnightly top ups, you also have to consider who and what you’re putting in your mane. Thankfully my hairdresser was very specific with the products I can and cannot use on my hair. Or more so should and should not use. Because she’s not the hair police… (all of the time anyway)! One brand that made the “yes Em, you can use it” list was haircare specialists Muk.

I’m not much of a traveller (sadly) so I get a little nervous whenever I do travel, but I think it’s because I’m the type of person who is certain she’ll forget something. This is why I’ve already started packing for my mini weekend away.
