I just tried the new Loreal Elvive range and ohmygod it's amazing.

Just as good as kerastase only $6 a bottle instead of $25.

Go to Priceline, grab the Elvive Nutri-Gloss shampoo & conditioner in the pink bottles, go home and use, have awesome soft and shiny hair.

They also have more protein based Anti-Breakage and Sleek-and-Shine versions but I am yet to try those. The Nutri-Gloss is good for dry or flat hair and isn't too heavy to use on fine hair either.

I hadn't heard of foundation brushes before Shelley (friend who works at The Body Shop) told me about them and proceeded to buy me one for my birthday.

They are AWESOME.
You basically paint your foundation on (heavily or lightly, your choice) and it blends perfectly. I think they are around 20-30 dollars from The Body Shop.

Ridolfo's For Hair: If anyone comes close to being my regular salon then this is them. Partly because it's so close (Ridolfo's can be found in North Perth Plaza on Fitzgerald St) but also because they are not too expensive and usually do what I ask them to. They're quite mainstream, when I asked them to put pink in my hair they freaked, but that doesn't always matter.
Sonja is the one to ask for if you want a great style cut. All the girls are okay with colour. It was them who originally got my hair from fire engine red to platinum without any disasters.[Reasonable]

I have a dream. That dream is to visit every salon in Perth until I find the hairdresser to rule all hairdressers.

Here is a list of salon reviews so far, the places that I can remember for now.
(Obviously experiences will always vary depending on which stylist you see, I find the same general standards will apply throughout each salon.) The value for money is indicated after each review.

Price Attack: What was I expecting, really? Well I was desperate. They used some kind of horrible supermarket quality bleach on my regrowth with pain enhancing particles. They also didn't check on the development and just left me there the whole time. The upsides were they were friendly and they let me try out a brand of shampoo I was curious about. [El Cheapo]

Anthony & Nicola's: This place is hidden above the surf store near Fitches Chemist on Hay St. Their price ranges are reasonable for a good quality salon. Marco did a fantastic job on my cut. He has a very classic style. There was a slight issue with the colour but that only took a day or two of clarifying shampoo to fix. [Reasonable/High Priced]

Chesters: 119 Rokeby Road Subiaco. My experience with this salon was unfortunately a bad one. They charged me for a re-application of bleach due to a mistake they made and the handful of pink/orange lowlights were put on before the regrowth application. Meaning they lifted half of them out straight away. I have my suspicions that they would deliver excellent style cuts though. [High Priced]

So I finally discovered a foundation that is SPF 30+ without making you the Shiny queen of Greaseville.

Innoxa - Satin Sheen.
Cost: around $24
I bought mine from Priceline. You can find the Innoxa range at most department stores like Myer.

It has a medium coverage with a smooth matte finish. The Ivory is yellow toned instead of pink, which is awesome if you have fair skin with a natural pink tone like me, balances it nicely.

While I'm on the topic of foundation. During my everlasting search for the perfect brand I tried the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse. My advice is stay away from the stuff. It made my skin look really dry and porous and it transfers very easily onto your clothes.
