We were already obsessed with Bleach London before they rebranded their packaging as 100 percent recycled cardboard and eco-friendly materials.

Honestly, their vegan formulas give us the best colours in hair as well as makeup, while maintaining a conscience.

Every since their sustainably-focused packaging rebrand, we've become unhealthily addicted to the energetic cosmetic company, and you will be too.

Co-founders of the brand, Alex Brownsell and Sam Campbell, made absolutely sure that their relaunched packaging was made from environmentally sound materials.

In our humble opinion, every makeup, skincare and cosmetics brand needs to follow suit. The vast amount of waste and plastic in landfill coming from the industry is mind-blowing.

The lads and their waste-not attitude led to the brand's customisation palettes.

These palettes come in a magnetic box and allow you to buy individual eyeshadow colours and collect them. The boxes come in a larger size for home use and a smaller one for on-the-go.

We're all guilty of only using one or two eyeshadow colours out of an entire palette, so why not curate your own kit and simply refill it when it runs out? Simples.

Bleach London 'Metallic Louder Powder', €5.60 (£5)

This translates to less waste, and a more sustainable beauty regimen. Bleach London's incredible hair range has also been totally vegan since 2017.

The company have a strictly cruelty-free ethos and are PETA-approved as part of their Beauty Without Bunnies programme. They're essentially magicians of beauty.

'Metallic Louder Powders' by Bleach London are available online for the affordable price of €5.60.

Finding the perfect hairdresser can be tricky; you need someone that listens to your hair needs and cuts and colours your hair exactly the way you want it.

And when you do find the one, it can be a brilliant thing – until you stop listening to their advice, that is.

So, to make the relationship perfect, here are five pieces of advice your hairdresser wish you knew or would listen to:

You CAN over-wash your hair

If your hair has ‘fly aways’ and is too soft, it's usually because you wash your hair too often and put conditioner all over. Not washing your hair for a day or two will give it more body and it will be more easily managed.


You really do need regular trims to grow your hair

OK, we know you’ve heard this a million times before but you really can't expect luscious, long locks without regular trims. If you don't trim your hair every few weeks, it will actually start to get thin and lifeless. And we don't want that!


The finer the comb, the greater the frizz

This is especially true if you have curly hair. The more teeth there are on a comb the more frizzy your hair will look. Instead, use a very wide tooth comb or comb through with your fingers.


The hairdryer should never touch your hair

Resting the nozzle of your hairdryer directly on your hair when blow-drying can cause scorching and breakage. Scary! The less heat on your hair the better so if you can't bear to air-dry, rough-dry your hair with a towel first to get most of the moisture out.


Coloured hair needs different care

If you don't want your colour to fade fast, then it's super important to pick the right shampoos and conditioners. You will need to use a shampoo that doesn't contain pearlising agents, conditioning agents and silicones that can build up on your hair leaving it looking dull.
