Nightblooming haul

Edited because Blogger ate most of the post?

Rusalki Herbal Hair Color and Conditioner 
Eilistraee Colorless Herbal Hair Conditioner 
Genasi Herbal Hair Color and Conditioner 
Devas Fairy Herbal Hair Color and Conditioner

These should be good for boosting my red tones!
I did however ask Nightblooming if I could add extra conditioner afterwards (Both to get enough treatment volume to cover my hair and to make sure I got a weak enough watercolour effect and not actually a dye). Nightblooming says I can add my chosen conditioner to the mix after I have finished mixing the treatment according to instructions, yay!

Sunlit Meadow Herbal Rinse for Light Hair
Forest Glade Herbal Rinse for Dark Hair
Miruvor Long Hair Herbal Tea

I'm really looking forward to trying a good final dip/rinse! They can work wonders for adjusting acidity and adding shine.

This cassia smells so yummy! It has a completely different smell from any other cassia I've ever tried: More like peas than that sort of "dusty" smell I've had so far.

Ostara's Hair Salve
Freya's Hair Salve
Panacea's Hair Salve
And at the bottom Thriae Scalp Scrub
I could not manage to open the scalp scrub for the photos, lol!
Neither Hubby or I could get it open, but luckily Nightblooming is awesome at answering questions and said "Sounds like some of the sugar and honey gummed it up a bit. you could try running warm water over where the lid meets the container or give it a soak in warm water (the labels are waterproof, but I'm not sure how well they take to soaking)".
It's now open and it smells heavenly!

Ostara's Hair Salve This one has a sort of herbal smell. I guess it's the horsetail and thyme?
Freya's Hair Salve Lavender yum!
Panacea's Hair Salve I can't really place the smell. I guess it's the Rooibos infusion that is unfamiliar to me?

I'm really picky with my teas, so I only got the sample size of the Miruvor long hair tea.
But I will definitely get more: This thing is great!
It has a herbal flavour with some sweetness to it. Really good, just the kind I like.

Life and such

Autumn is becoming winter up here in the north, so now my scalp and skin is upset over the changing temperature and humidity.

Winter season also means a lot of (bullshit) social obligations. I don't know why winter/Christmas approaching means that every single person you barely saw the rest of the year suddenly wants to see you.
This little introvert does not approve.

One cool thing I've found though: The Royal bun actually goes well for both work and parties.

I simply add some leave in conditioner to the loose strands to give them more structure and make them look deliberate, and some false lashes and I'm fairly good to go.
Saves me lots of time!

Just to demonstrate: False eyelashes on my left side (Viewers right)
