Trash Or Treasure: Empties (Hair) October 2014

Tuesday, 11 November 2014



I haven't posted an empties post in ages, so instead of writing up a post that will take you 3 hours to read, I'm going to space the empties over the week into categories. 

Today I've got my haircare empties. Even though I only wash my hair 1-2 times a week (I depend on a lot of dry shampoo) I've gone through a surprising number of hair masks!!

Here's what I've used and if I would buy a 2nd bottle...



bHave Rescue Intense Repair Shampoo*

I adore bHave products and the Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner are AMAZING!! So amazing that I can't imagine that I would ever live without them. 

Will I repurchase? I've already got a back up!

Redken Diamond Oil Conditioner

I like Redken products but don't purchase them often as I already have quite a few haircare products in my beauty cupboards that need to be used first. 

The Diamond Oil range is really beautiful. It left my hair feeling really soft and healthy. 

Will I repurchase? Not until I need to purchase a shampoo and conditioner. 

John Frieda Sheer Blonde Everlasting Blonde Colour Preserving Shampoo*

I really like John Frieda products and this blonde shampoo was fantastic. I like that I can use this when I'm in a hurry and not have to worry about brassiness or a green tinge from chlorine. 

Will I repurchase? Possibly, although I currently don't need any blonding products. 

Redken Diamond Oil Deep Facets

This hydrating mask left my hair feeling soft and smooth while also helping to strengthen it. I was able to get 2 uses out of the sample and think that a fullsize version will be worth the money since I didn't use a lot to cover the ends of my hair. 

Will I repurchase? Yes, when I need a new hair mask. 

Fudge 3 in 1 Miracle Moisture Stuff

I really like Fudge products but sadly this just didn't do it for me. It's not that it's a bad product, it was just that I felt like it was a bit of a waste since I apply a leave in conditioner and a hair oil everyday.  

I also found the packaging a pain in the you-know-what. The pump didn't work well after a while and I had to keep taking off the lid to get out the creme. 

Will I repurchase? No

Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk

I like to use a leave in conditioner to help detangle my hair. This one smells AMAZING (like coconut) and helped to give my hair moisture and detangle any knots. 

Will I repurchase? Yes


muk.spa Argan Oil Repair Mask*

This is a really beautiful hair mask that made my hair feel soft and smooth. It helps to strengthen your hair while also minimising frizz. 

The mask is affordable and lasted quite a while with weekly use. I used this on my hair for 20-30 minutes to repair my hair from daily damage.

Will I repurchase? Yes

LÓreal EverPure Moisture Deep Restorative Masque

I like to have a inexpensive mask that I can use on busy mornings when I need to wash my hair. This one does the job and left my hair feeling lovely.

Will I repurchase? Only if it was on sale

LÓreal Ever Creme Deep Nourishing Masque

While this mask was nice, I preferred the EverPure mask. It worked better on my hair and I liked the smell more.

Will I repurchase? No

Royal Moroccan Hair Mask Treatment*

I adore this mask. It helps to give my hair a hit of moisture and also it helps to repair damage. This is the original version and they have now released a version for fine hair, which I find works better on my hair. 

Will I repurchase? No, but I would purchase the fine hair version


Royal Moroccan Nourishing Mask Treatment For Thin & Fine Hair*

While the original version is fantastic, I adore this version since it doesn't feel heavy on my fine hair. It still has all of the wonderful benefits of the original, like repairing damage and making my hair feel soft.

Will I repurchase? Yes

Original & Mineral Seven Day Miracle Moisture Masque

I adore O&M and this moisturising mask is my favourite. It's a holy grail mask for me. It smells incredible, is lightweight and still hydrating. 

The only downside is the fact that it's not easy for me to buy instore and I have to rely on purchasing it online, which can be a pain if the delivery driver doesn't leave the package (my local post office isn't open on the weekend, so it may be a few days until I can get in to pick it up and I HATE waiting!). 

Will I repurchase? Yes

bHave Deep Intense Conditioning Masque*

This is another holy grail mask. I've gone through 2 or 3 of these and they're wonderful. I can use it in as little as 5 minutes or I sometimes like to use it as a deep repair mask and keep it on my hair for 20-30 minutes. 

I'm always left with soft, frizz free hair after using this. 

Will I repurchase? I've already got a back up!



Toni& Guy Cleanse Dry Shampoo

This is my holy grail dry shampoo and I love how it leaves my hair feeling clean, without weighing it down or leaving a white residue. 

While I adore this, it's also pricey so I usually pick it up when I see it on sale or when Priceline have their hair goodie bag or 40% off haircare days. 

Will I repurchase? Yes, I already have one that I bought recently on sale

Eleven Australia Give Me Clean Hair Dry Shampoo*

This has a scent that reminds me of being on a tropical island. It smells beautiful and it's a fantastic dry shampoo for helping to get rid of oily roots, while not giving you weighed down hair. 


Will I repurchase? Yes

Tresemme Instant Refresh Cleansing Dry Shampoo

I picked this up from the supermarket as it was 50% off and I wanted a cheap everyday dry shampoo. I was really surprised at how lovely this was. It didn't weigh down my fine hair and didn't leave any residue. 

Will I repurchase? Possibly

Polished London Dry Shampoo in "Bristol Bloom"*

I ADORE these! At only $4.95 for 150ml, these are amazing value. Priceline often has them on sale for $3, so they're worth stocking up on when they're on sale.

I love how lightweight they feel on my hair. 


Will I repurchase? Yes

Fudge Dry Shampoo

I picked this up from the supermarket when it was on special. Sadly while I did like this, the nozzle jammed and I wasn't able to fix it. I only ended up using about 1/4 of the can :(

Will I repurchase? No. While I liked it, I'm worried if I got it again the nozzle would get stuck and I'd waste most of it. 

As you can see, I find it really easy to get through my hair products (especially hair masks and dry shampoo) ... unlike make up! 

I recently did a haircare routine post (here) if you want to see the other hair products that I'm using and loving.

What hair product do you use the most?
