Competition Wins: June 2017

My last competition win 'haul' was back in February so thought I was due to do an update! I don't get much of a chance to enter competitions these days but whenever I see one in passing I usually will enter, and on Fridays I enter a few 'RT to win' comps on Twitter for #FreebieFriday. I was thinking of doing a new blog post on how to win competitions with my top tips. I did one back in 2012 but it's quite outdated now.. would anyone be interested in an updated version?

Here are my competition wins for the last 3 months...

Introducing Smartbond at Regis Salons

I was recently invited by Regis Salons to try out the new Smartbond treatment from L'Oreal at my local salon in Milton Keynes. This new system (similar to Olaplex) protects and strengthens the hair during colouring so it's left smooth, soft, shiny, and not damaged.

I was interested to try this new treatment as my hair was previously left lifeless from using bleach and colourants, and I wanted to put some shine back into it!
