Puro Organic Hair Salon Birmingham 2nd Birthday Party

The guys at Puro Organic Hair Salon very kindly invited me to their second birthday party. I’ve heard such great things about the salon but never actually been inside, so I wanted to put things right.

The evening was really interactive and I had a hair elasticity test, scalp massage and hair colour consultation with Lindsey.  The first test involved wetting around a dozen strands of hair and pulling on them, and showed that my hair is in need of protein and the scalp massage was dreamy.

The canapés were so much fun, Kola Kubes and Mini Eggs, and we were given some gorgeous samples to take away. I got a mini bottle of Organic Care System Aqua Boost Conditioner, which is certified organic and nourishes hair, leaving it moisturised and protected from UV rays. I also got a sachet of Kevin Murphy Luxury Wash (SLS and Paraben free shampoo for thick dry coloured hair) and Kevin Murphy Body Guard leave in crème that smoothes dry ends and protects hair from mechanical damage.

I’ve used the Kevin Murphy sachets and was really impressed. The shampoo is quite thin but effective, and the conditioner is a leave in one. I didn’t know what to expect from the conditioner and thought it might be really greasy, but actually it was a really thin consistency and really did leave my hair feeling soft and a lot more manageable than usual.

I really want to learn more about hair and by using pricier products, I was surprised at the difference between these and the high street brands.

I managed to take a few quick snaps on my phone of the products they recommended but they’re not great.

I had a great time so thanks for the hospitality guys!


  1. It was thank you! I'm definitely going to try them out, especially if I go ahead and dye my hair back to brown, ekk! x
