Have you heard about weDo/ – our newest range of products at The Head Gardener? We, like the products, are proud to support the global effort to go green through use of ethically-sourced, sustainable ingredients that are as friendly to your hair and skin as they are to the environment.
We gave close friend, former BBC presenter and journalist, Pennie Latin, a sample basket of weDo/ products for some feedback. So stay tuned as we take you through through her no-frills review of the new range over the next few weeks. And if anything piques your curiosity, pop by and see us at the salon – which, by the way, has been decked out in lush, leafy foliage in honour of the launch!
Entry #1… Enjoy!
Ok confession time, whisper it, I’m the world’s worst when it comes to hair care or skin care. It’s not that I don’t care, it’s just that I was at the back of the queue when God was handing out the genes for general maintenance. I take low-maintenance to a whole new level. My skin care regime? Soap and baby oil, maybe a dash of Vaseline intensive care if I’m really pampering myself. My hair care routine? Cheap as chips shampoo, a squeeze of conditioner, wash, go and quite often forget to look in the mirror before I arrive. All these Zoom meetings have not been my friend.
You know what’s daft about all this? I actually love being pampered and I genuinely do enjoy a good product, but I don’t enjoy them enough not to worry about the damage all this consumption and plastic pollution does to the planet.
So, when Alison at the Head Gardener asked me to road test the new Wella WeDo range I thought she was off her nut!
“me?” I blinked, “but I’m rubbish at hair stuff, I won’t even know the right words to describe what the products do!”
“yup, you”, Alison pushed back, “if anyone’s going to be honest about them it’s you, you’ll say it as it is, you won’t pull your punches, you care about the environment and that’s what they’re all about”.
So today a bag arrived with 9 different products for me to try. Cue panic. 9!? I didn’t even know there were 9 things I could apply a product to! But, as a journalist, I’m nothing if not insatiably curious so here I go, a soapy Calamity Jane heading for the wild west…just tell me which end of the shampoo gun I point and which part of my body to pull the trigger at!
