Muse of London: Chocolate Crusade Treatment*


If you'd have told me in 2013 that a hairdressers would be asking me if I could visit their salon and review their new hair treatments in exchange for a blog post, I'd have probably laughed in your face. However, a few weeks ago, the lovely guys at Muse of London held a celebration for their 5th Birthday, and also to showcase their new colour range called Chocolate Crusade. It was a fabulous evening with a chocolate fountain that I spent the entire night stood next to, chocolate themed cocktails - which were insane, and I left desperate to give my hair a little oomph. The next day, the lovely guys got in touch with me again to ask if I would like to try out one of the new colours, and obviously I said yes.



The whole menu of colours are all named after something chocolate related, from Strawberry Ganache to Cinnamon Salted Caramel, which is such a great selling point for anyone as addicted to chocolate as I am. As my hair is pretty dark anyway, I opted to go for the Dark Chocolate, which is described as an Espresso colour with a high gloss finish - this sounded ideal for me as my hair was still clinging on to my 2014 redness in the ends, I regret wanting to look like bad gal Riri!


The overall treatment time took around an hour and a half, but this includes the 20-30 minutes developing time of the colour, and trust me, it was totally worth it. As I feel that my life is constantly on the go, it was great to actually have the hour and a half to myself, and spent the time catching up on Killing Eve (still disappointed at the ending of that show, not going to lie). During the rinse off of the colour, I had the most insane head massage that I will never forget - it's just the best part of going to the hairdressers, am I right or am I right?!

When my hair had been blow dried (also the best blow dry I have ever had - didn't even feel that it needed straightening after) I was in total shock at how fresh and glossy my hair looked. As someone who has never had a gloss on their hair before, I had no idea what to expect, but I was truly amazed at the result. I did worry a little that it would make my hair look super greasy, but it really didn't. Even if you don't live in London, I would recommend getting a gloss on your hair at your local hairdressers - totally worth it, I've been swishing my hair in everyone's faces since I've had it done. I'm gutted I didn't get a good photo of my hair on the day, as these photos were taken a few weeks after the treatment you can see the gloss has definitely worn away a little.




Muse have definitely restored my faith in hairdressers, and I just know that it will become my new go-to salon as it's so reasonably priced for London, and close enough for me to get to after work. Located on Mortimer Street, Muse of London is perfectly central for those of you who work in London, being only a 10 minute walk from Oxford Circus. They always have great offers on for other treatments, and also offer a variety of beauty treatments too. I'd love to hear if you've ever been to Muse, or if you are tempted by any of the colours on the Chocolate Crusade menu!
