Josh Wood Everything Mask (£15)

Josh Wood Everything Mask

Everytime I wash my hair I use a mask, either this one or Kerastase. It's so important to nourish your hair everytime you wash it to keep it healthy and shiny. This mask really is EVERYTHING, I highly recommend it.

Josh Wood Permanent Colour 5.0 - Light Brown (£10)

Josh Wood Light Brown Hair Colour

This is permanent hair colour for your roots. No amonia, no PPD. I have taken this and my shade shot on holiday with me. Great way to touch up between appointments.

Josh Wood Shade Shot (£5)

Josh Wood Chestnut Brunette Shade Shot

I love the Shade Shot, sometimes I mix it into my Josh Wood Everything Mask but you mix it with your colour to get the perfect tone for your hair colour.

Josh Wood Darker Brown Dry Shampoo (£10)

Josh Wood darker brown dry shampoo

I love this product, it's a great colour and it's a dry shampoo, use it to cover greys and add volume between washes and colouring..

Redken Clean Maniac Shampoo (£9)

Redken Clean Maniac Shampoo

Great to use to get rid of product build up on the scalp. Josh recommends using it before getting your hair coloured, it will gently strip your hair so only use regularly if you're blonde.
