But then I heard about Julien Farel products from Selfridges and my ears pricked up. Why? The collection is said to be 'anti-ageing', and while I'm not one for slathering products like this on my skin, I thought 'why the heck not for my hair'. After all, my do ain't getting any younger, especially if the years of hair dye application and chemical treatment is anything to go by.

The New York hair stylist has unveiled the lien - dubbed 'a first-of-its-kind, cleanse-treat-condition formula'.
The brand suggests to use Julien Farel Restore -twice a week in place of regular shampoo and conditioner. You can use it on dry or wet hair, and it should be left on a good few minutes before rinsing in the shower.
I'll be honest, it took some real getting used to. I'm someone who washes my hair daily, so even washing every other day I felt a little grubby. But after just a few applications, over a couple of weeks, my hair was glossier and healthier-looking than it's been in a while.
The range isn't cheap, at £28 for the Vitamin Restore alone, but when you consider that you'll be washing your hair much less, it offers a bit better value for money than you'd expect.
The range is also formulated for colour-treated hair - another bonus for me and my jet black dyed 'do.
Have you tried anything by Julien Farel? Will you be checking the brand out on your next Selfridges stop?
