Some weeks ago, I had one of these days. Baba was still recovering from his croup and he needed so much attention, I was knackered. Anyway, Grumpy Boyfriend was as helpful as he could. But at the end of the day, he has a company to run. Baba malade, we agreed that he would take care of the weekly shopping on his own, while I would stay at home. You know, I might moan about Grumpy Boyfriend sometimes, but really, he is a good guy.
He came back one hour later with some magazines to cheer me up. ‘Look what I bought you! Some mummy reading!’ A gossip magazine with Charlotte Crosby from Geordie Shore on the cover. Big yawn, as I am not at all into reality TV shows. The second magazine was the June issue of Elle with a free hair product. A hair product?! Seriously?
I would have preferred another publication with a free nail varnish! My hair is the last part of my body that I care about. For example, I used to wash it with shower gel without any shame if I was running out of shampoo. Conditioner? I can’t be bothered with it.
So here I am with that in my hands, wondering what to do with it. Now, ladies, you may have heard and endured of Postpartum Hair Loss. I mean, nobody told me about this kind of thing happening to you after giving birth! That would have massively put me off trying for a baby!
I have always lost quite a lot of hair. I would be the kind of person who hoovers and as soon as she packs up, she finds a bunch on the carpet. But the first time I found a handful of my dearest cheveux in the shower, then I realised two things:
- I wasn’t getting any younger for sure, malheureusement (I was probably more like ‘Merde!!!!’ Just saying).
- Postpartum effects suck! If you read this post and you are trying for a baby. THINK TWICE!
Desespérée, I decided to try ce produit miraculeux. I had nothing to lose and it was free… It is very simple to use. You apply Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Overnight Recovery to dry hair before going to bed. Massage a generous amount into your scalp and roots. Within a few minutes, it’s gone and you can go to sleep. What’s great about it is that it doesn’t leave any mark on the bed. Furthermore, it smells lovely. You only need to shampoo it in the morning and then, off to you to style your hair the way you want.
So Frenchie Mummy followed the instructions and to her surprise, found her hair transformed. It was smooth, felt stronger. Oh miracle, within a couple of weeks using it, I noticed a big improvement, losing way less hair than before. My split ends also looked better.
Now, I am cheating a bit as I wash my hair in the evenings. I simply apply Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Overnight Recovery in the late afternoon and I rinse it in the evenings. I have to say the result is very good, behind my expectation even. Mes cheveux have been looking so much better since I used it twice a week!
To help the process, I also started using L’Oréal Elvive Damaged Hair shampoo and conditioner. I read other reviews on Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Overnight Recovery and some people said their hair looked a bit greasy with it. I have to say that I didn’t experience it at all.
So go on Frenchie Mummy, what about le résultat!?
Overall, I am very pleased with Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Overnight Recovery. I will definitely continue using it every week. My hair feels smooth, glossy, healthy and stronger. It looks healthier and soft. More importantly, I am not spreading so much hair behind me. I don’t feel like an animal moulting all over the flat.
Plus, my hair feels easy to brush and light. It’s official, I am another woman 😁. So it’s a massive winner and I would strongly recommend it to any mummy who is suffering Postpartum Hair Loss.
All opinions expressed are my own. Frenchie Mummy was fully aware of the risk (of having a chevelure de rêves!) she was taking when she tried this product. Nobody got hurt in the process and both Baba and Grumpy Boyfriend are very eager to test it themselves 😄.
