Hi there! Happy Monday! Today I'll be sharing with you a few hair goodies sent to me by the lovely ladies of La Belle Aventure.

La Belle Aventure is a fashion, beauty and lifestyle blog run by sisters Shanaz and Kamarla. I find their blog perfect for beauty tips and tricks as well as fashion inspiration from both themselves and their favourite catwalk collections. I would definitely recommend that you check it out!

These ladies were kind enough to send me an Organic Root Stimulator hair care gift package - and gosh, am I happy with it! ORS is a brand that specialises in caring for ethnic hair, so you can imagine my excitement to try them out, with the knowledge that they were designed to tackle my frizzy mane!

The package contained more products than I had anticipated - which could only be a positive, right? Admittedly, it took me a while to try all the products, but now that I have, I will not hesitate to call them all fantastic!

The samples I received were a good selection of desirable products for tackling the everyday ' fro. Of these products, I found the Hair Repair Crème worked best for me, as it was nourishingly moisturising without the oily residue that so often comes with afro hair products. Perhaps the only product here that I may not purchase is the Heat Protection Serum which I found horrifically messy! It does work though - so if you can come up with a sophisticated and mess-free method of applying it, I would definitely urge you to purchase!

The package also included some great Sheen Spray; perfect for giving your hair an effortlessly healthy shine! The Satin Wrap might just be the best idea ever invented. It is essentially just a head-sized scarf with some Velcro, which sounds ruthlessly unglamorous, but it's a lot more glamorous than a head full of split ends!

Overall, I'm delighted with the products, so thank you to the girls of La Belle Aventure! Have any of you tried these products? What do you think of them?
