What the experts say – Tina Donovan @ The Progressive Hair Company

So after starting the feature ‘what the experts say’ I am pleased to be writing this next post as it’s great inside knowledge about the best way to look after your luscious locks!

Tina Donovan @ The Progressive Hair Company Top Hair Tips

Let’s take a look how we can look after our hair that little bit better, take it away Tina…..

To look after your hair between salon visits, use a good professional shampoo and conditioner. Quality products mean you can use less product as they are concentrated within the bottle so adding a little water to your shampoo will go a long way. Look out for products with up filters giving you that added bit of protection whatever the weather.

Give your hair an extra treat once a week by investing in a moisturising Masque. This will work deeper in to your cuticle giving your hair moisture and shine, just what your hair deserves. Wrap in a towel and leave for 5-10 minutes whilst soaking in the bath, a good excuse for a little me time!

Detangling hair! This is usually when we mistreat our hair using a brush or, pulling and over and stretching the hair. SLOW down, use either a wide tooth comb or a tangle teaser, these won’t stretch and pull your locks. Section hair into 3, start combing mid length to ends first then work your way from the root to ends. This will keep tangles to a minimum, if needed use a leave in detangle spray to give you a faster tangle free hair.

What a wonderful weekend

Such a lovely weekend. It’s a wonderful thing to be able to mix business and pleasure together and this weekend I was able to, and loved it!

I had the pleasure of being able to go and support a wonderful charity event that was organised on behalf of a stunning and strong little girl who is fighting Leukemia as I type. There are many inspirational people in life and little Isla truly is one of them, at 5 years old, she still caries a smile whilst battling the horrible disease. I can only imagine her smiles and happiness continues to give her family strength as it’s an emotional journey that no one should have to go through. Well done to all involved and it was a real pleasure to be part of something that is such a worthy cause.

I hope you raised plenty of money, and I hope the fantastic charity CLIC Sargent continues to be supported for the great work they do.

I also had the pleasure of taking part in the Lumbers Wedding Event on Saturday, to all who came, it was lovely to see you and I’m sure you managed to find rings in the 2000 or so that were there to look through! Well done Lumbers and we are looking forward to many more wonderful events.

We hope you all had a lovely weekend and have a great start to the week ahead! x

Here’s to 2013!

Bye bye to 2012……..which ended in a wedding whirlwind, it was our best year yet with some fantastic weddings and lovely clients, plus a Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed birthday party!

I decided to say thank you to all my friends who have been a part of Eve Lily from the start, family, friends and lovely suppliers (who are now friends) from the wedding industry plus my wonderful clients, past and present.

It was a lovely night, held at the stunningly beautiful City Rooms in Leicester. If you know the venue then you will be aware that it’s just a perfect ballroom to hold such an event, if you don’t, then I suggest you take a peek. I was lucky to have the wonderful Rebecca and her band perform some beautiful songs, including Moon River of course!

Themed as Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the guys looked very swish whilst the girls made such a wonderful effort by either looking glam or arriving dressed as Audrey, just perfect! Obviously I had to make an effort being the host and so I played dress up and tried my hardest to become Audrey for the night, with the help of my good friend Beth from Bettie Lottie Make Up of course. I even had a birthday cake which as you can see it was just beautiful, courtesy of the lovely Melody from Melody Cakes.
