12 Days of Giftmas - Viviscal ¦ Giveaway

On the third day of Giftmas my true love gave to me, voluminous hair that's plain to see...

This time around, the post is going to be short and sweet. I'm just discussing one product - though I utterly believe in the brand behind it as well. I have naturally fine and thin hair and I swear by Viviscal. I used their hair growth serum and shampoo and conditioner for around a year and  completely attribute the fact that hairdressers now don't classify my hair as thin to the use of their products. However, my hair remains somewhat fine, is naturally dead straight and has a tendency to have volume where I don't want it and none where I do...Le sigh. What I need is texture, volume and life.

Which is where today's 12 Days of Giftmas idea comes from. I know that there are many others with the same struggles as me when it comes to hair and I've found the solution (or one of them, anyway): Viviscal's new launch, their Volumising Hair Fibres (€20.00).


"But what, pray tell, might this 12 Days of Giftmas be?" you're probably asking.

If you didn't read yesterday's post about TanOrganic, let me explain it again!

The 12 Days of Giftmas is a project that occurred to me last week. An idea that I ambitiously decided to go through with very last minute - I must be a lunatic. It's a sort of advent calendar for me and my readers, a way of saying thank you for reading and rewarding you in a small way. For the first 12 days of December, I will be writing a post every day on a shop, brand or item that would make good gifts. This is instead of the long gift ideas posts I've done in the past and offers a more in-depth look at some amazing companies and things. To complement each post, I've also teamed up with these fantastic brands and will be giving something away each day! So, the 12 Days of Giftmas will give you some gift ideas and the potential to win something for a loved one (or yourself!).

When I first heard about this Viviscal launch a few weeks ago, I was intrigued. I then kind of forgot about it until I got the sample but once I tried it, I was hooked. The only problem was that it made me have the best hair day in ages, in a week of naturally good hair days. Why is this a problem? I'd just decided to change my hair and, as it happens every time I make such a decision, hair that looked in desperate need of a trim and change a couple weeks ago suddenly looks good, making me question everything.

Stupid first-world problems aside, it genuinely did make me have a fantastic hair day - even through horrendous rain.

The fibres are like a powder which comes in a little container that you shake over your head as if dusting a cake with icing sugar. You do so until it covers up sparseness, or just makes your hair look thicker, and then pat in gently.After thirty seconds, you'll notice a visible difference and a little hairspray will help lock it in for longer.

Considering that yesterday's post was about getting your best tan ever ahead of the party season (or giving it to someone else), today's is about party-ready hair, hair for those conscious of volume or sparseness or just giving a hair/beauty addict some new beauty technology to play around with.
