When I'm not working, you can often find me watching hair and make up tutorials on YouTube as I love trying new things and being creative. I love trying new make up products and seeing which best suits my skin. I'm a big fan of horror movies, eating out at restaurants and shopping. I love animals, especially dogs. I love reading books – my favourites are thriller but I've been enjoying looking online for people's recommendations on different genres too!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE TEXTURE OF YOUR HAIR?
My hair was very dry and brittle. I’ve dyed and bleached it A LOT over the years and it's definitely damaged my hair.
HOW DID YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR HAIR BEFORE THE INTRODUCTION OF THE INNATE LIFE PRODUCTS?
I didn’t really take care of it too much, I just used any cheap shampoo and conditioner every other day to wash it as washing was the only way I could get the knots out. I’ve dyed it hundreds of times and have gone days without brushing it just for an easy life.
WHAT MADE YOU SEEK OUT THE INNATE LIFE PRODUCTS? HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE COMPANY?
The Innate Life came into my life when I spoke to my friend @nievelonghair about starting my healthy long hair journey. She has been using your products for a while and couldn’t recommend them enough so I just had to try them! Her hair always looks so flawless so I knew it would be a good shout.
WHAT SETS THE INNATE LIFE APART FROM OTHER COMPANIES IN THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY?
The ingredients are organic, cruelty-free and vegan… What more could you ask for! I love how on the website, there are videos showing you exactly how to apply each product and it tells you on the bottles too, for those that are a little unsure like me! The team is so supportive and very active online, you can really see how passionate they are about what they do and it's great to see.
WHAT IS YOUR HAIRCARE ROUTINE NOW?
So the day before my wash day once a week, I dampen my hair and saturate The Innate Life Herbal Hair Mask all over the lengths of my hair. Then I braid my hair to get ready for bed. Either the next morning or afternoon (I have left it until the afternoon before), I wash my hair using shampoo and conditioner (I have yet to try The Innate Life Shampoo and Conditioner (discontinued) and can’t wait to see how good it is as I’ve heard good things)! Then I use a leave-in conditioner and once my hair is almost dry, I use a couple of drops of The Innate Life Rose Hair Elixir (this is my favourite product EVER). I use this every day and night and my hair looks, smells and feels amazing 24/7.
HOW DID YOU SEE YOUR HAIR CHANGE AFTER USING THE INNATE LIFE PRODUCTS?
My hair is so much more healthy, I’ve noticed a real shine to it everyday and I can actually get a brush through it without it reducing me to tears (yes that has happened a few times). It feels much stronger and I'm always getting compliments on how shiny and healthy my hair is now!
WHICH IS YOUR FAVOURITE PRODUCT AND WHY?
My favourite product is definitely the Rose Hair Elixir. I absolutely love it, it smells amazing and leaves my hair super soft and shiny. It’s so easy to use and I love the applicator it comes with too! The packaging is also very pretty. I 100% need to keep stocked up on it as I'm not sure I could live without it now.
WHO WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THESE PRODUCTS TO?
Everyone needs to try these products… I repeat, EVERYONE! I have very dry hair and it's definitely taken the dryness away! If you want your hair to grow and want it to grow healthily, then The Innate Life is definitely for you. It also really helps that the company put so much effort into everything and it's great to support the business.
HOW DOES THE INNATE LIFE FIT INTO A LIFESTYLE COMMITTED TO HEALTH + WELLNESS?
The Innate Life has helped me to love my natural hair again and to build a healthy relationship with it too. As someone who has always expressed themselves through hairstyles and colour, I think it's very important to not feel stressed or down because of unhealthy dull hair. It’s great to find a brand that really cares about what ingredients they are using in their products and that are organic too. I really enjoy applying my Herbal Hair Mask weekly as it's something I do for myself and I find it very therapeutic.
