Have you heard of SEMI DI LINO? It’s a bestselling hair treatment line from ALFAPARF Milano.  Recently I was invited into the brand new ALFAPARF Milano Ireland Academy in Dublin to experience the Semi Di Lino unique three step in-salon treatment to detox, care and gloss.

My Stylist Ronan of  Sebastian Marks 

The Semi Di Lino treatment line has been renewed and enhanced, I was a total newbie to the brand and products. Yes, I had heard of the range but I had never used it. I noticed instant results post-treatment and because of that I feel the need to share my experience with you, the treatment will literally change your hair. 

My Stylist Ronan of  Sebastian Marks  at the start of  my treatment
As mentioned above there are three steps to the treatment. Firstly, your stylist will have a chat with you in relation to the condition of your hair, what your main concerns are, how often you colour and how you style it.

My hair pre-treatment

I get my hair coloured every 6-8 weeks. For my last colour, I changed from balayage back to blonde highlight with colour. If you are blonde you will know it is high maintenance. My Main hair concerns where dryness and the overall condition of my hair from heat styling (adding waves to my hair).  

Your treatment will be based on your personal consultation. Products from the Semi Di Lino range will be used by your stylist as part of your treatment.Post-treatment products from the range will be recommended as part of your home treatment plan.

For my treatment, Ronan from Sebastian Marks recommended that we focus on cleansing my hair, adding moisture and lifting the brassy tones that were present by using pigment.

My treatment was based on the moisture range:
For Dry, lifeless hair

Dry hair low in moisture appears dull and lifeless and becomes increasingly more difficult to manage. Our Moisture Ritual, loaded with a unique blend of weightless, water-loving, nutri-sugars instantly transforms even the most parched hair leaving it lush, re-hydrated and infinitely easier to style.
Every range has these key active ingredients pictured below, with an extra ingredient added for the specific range.   

 The other Semi De Lino treatment lines include:

For normal hair

Exposed to the ravages of daily environmental pollution and constant heat damage even normal hair needs a boost. Our revitalising Diamond Ritual, rich in Vitamins A, E and D leaves hair noticeably softer, shinier and easier to manage.

For damaged, fragile hair

The ultimate strengthener for weak and damaged hair. Megadoses of bamboo marrow and cortex repairer instantly restore the elasticity and tensile strength of each and every individual hair. Our Restructuring Ritual radically improves the quality, look and feel of even the most weakened

STEP 1: 
Involves the application of the Semi Di Lino professional detoxifying mud…here’s the science

This powerful Detox Treatment uses the proven, purifying effects of activated carbon and kaolin clay to gently but effectively remove the damaging impurities from the hair caused by environmental pollutants. Hair and scalp are returned to their original state and left ready and primed for the second step of your Semi Di Lino Ritual.

After 20 minutes the mask is washed from the hair. Other products where are then added to my hair including moisture shampoo, a nutritive mask (like conditioner ), nutritive essential oil was also mixed in with the nutritive mask and lastly, pure pigment in violet ash was added to my hair to lift the brassy blonde tones.

Step 3 GLOSS:

The Sublime range is the finishing touch to your Semi Di Lino Ritual to purify, perfect and enhance your hair. Your hair will smell divine, with a supernatural shine and incredible softness.

The complete appointment will last approximately 80 minutes and you can view Semi Di Lino Salons here.

My post-treatment results:

Would I recommend the treatment?

Yes, as the results are instant. The overall experience was fabulous and it was a real treat. My Hair felt so clean, smelt amazing, looked healthy and it had that I just got my colour done look. The brassy tones in my hair were lifted thanks to the pigment application. 

Pigment Range tailored to your colour

The treatment brought a shine back into my hair which can be difficult to get as a blonde. Also, what a fab treatment to get done as a Bride to be your hair will be in great condition for your wedding.

Having a detox treatment on the hair is needed due to the colours we use, the way we style our hair, the environment we are in every day. I think it’s time we started to treat our hair like our skincare routine invest in good products and regular treatments.  

How often should you get the treatment?
Consult with our Semi Di Lino stylist and they will recommend how often.
Using the products recommended after the treatment will ensure that the treatment upkeep is maintained.

 Semi Di Lino range Cost?
In terms of cost, it's a very affordable range. I was actually surprised at the affordability of the range myself. Based on the results obtained it is a brand worth trying out.     
So there you have it my Semi Di Lino experience. 
Warning!! Having this treatment done will result in you wanting to go out.

Flormar Revolution Lipstick In Burgundy Mission

I was delighted to receive a sample of the Revolution lipstick in burgundy mission, along with the lip liner to match. These were Kindly sent from RDC Communications. Flormar was launched this year in Ireland and it has proven to be a huge success and a popular choice for those who want affordability and quality. 

I tested this lipstick out over Christmas, as I am trying to be more adventurous and try out stronger colours, as I normally tend to stick with nude tones. This lipstick is a rich berry colour with blue undertones, having these undertones makes your teeth appear whiter.  
"Revolution is Flormar premium lipstick containing shea butter, cocoa, olives, a super pigment and easy 8 hr staying power".
Application Tips:
Before application ensure your lips are in good condition especially in this harsh weather. Exfoliate to remove any dry skin and apply vaseline regularly to keep them conditioned. I applied setting powder to my lips before application, this can help prolong …

Finally Contouring is getting the push

Anyone else as happy as me to see that contouring is not as popular in the makeup world. I personally could never get used to it. I think it looks amazing in photographers or on a night out when done right. If you prefer a more heavy look. I believe strobing has been around before it was just called highlighting then. So do not be confused!!!

For me I prefer a more natural look when it comes to makeup. The whole idea with strobing is that you can see the skin and it is not heavily covered up. 
I have been using the Mac Strobe Cream for a few months now. You can also strobe with powder.

What I like about Mac Strobe?

It makes the skin look radiant,fresh and healthy (for tired Mammies like me it's a must) It's easily applied. It's a no fuss product, there is no messing with it. It can be worn alone or added after foundation is applied. With some blush you are good to go.
