|Totally gratuitous picture of the quite-frankly-all-too-handsome Mr Fekkai|
Fekkai have enjoyed huge success since those days and the selling of the company to P&G in early 2008 saw the expected influx of cash to the range - and meant that the brand could branch out and offer amongst other things, supersizes of the products - which predictably I am slightly addicted to.
Although the body products are STILL NOT AVAILABLE in the UK (WHY??) except through dodgy grey market sites that I wouldn't touch with a barge pole - these are - and they rock.
The Essential Shea range is the one I've been using lately - it's perfect for this weather that can never seem to make its mind up and hair that behaves the same way. It's also the only way I can get a hit of the gorgeous smell in the absence of the body products.
However, taking a look at my 'hair box' of products that I have on hand for everyday use - this little beauty is what I have used consistently over the years:
The Brilliant Glossing Cream just works for me. No matter what I attempt to do to my hair. It smooths frizz when I wear it down, defines curl, sleeks the straightened hair and is THE product for any kind of up-do or bun - which I tend to rely on a little too often to get me through a day full of meetings. A little goes a really long way, do be careful not to be too heavy handed.
I am always trying other products and it's not the only thing I use - but it's consistent.
Fekkai is available pretty much everywhere from ASOS to onliners to SpaceNK.
Go and have a play. Tis lovely.
