Introducing Nioxin!


One of the things I most enjoy about being a hairstylist is always getting to try the new products!

Firstly I will start with a little inside on the brand Nioxin. When founder Eva Graham experienced thinning hair after giving birth to her first child, she began to investigate the idea of treating the scalp with skincare methods to promote hair growth. This is when Nioxin came to origin. To define Nioxin, it is the hair care product specially invented for thinning hair solution. As we do facial on face, similarly our Scalp requires attention & care and Nioxin works on scalp health providing strength and nourishment which results into hair thicker & fuller look.

This brand is:

  • No1. globally selling salon brand for thicker fuller looking hair.
  • Winner of the stylist Choice Award for “Favourite Thinning Hair Care” since 2002Claims_d
  • Most awarded brand for thinning hair in the US
  • More than 25 years of dedicated research
  • More than 70%  of users notice thicker, fuller looking hair in just 30 days.


At The Salon@Georges Court Waterford City, we have the full range of Nioxin hair care systems to match and treat your hair issue, giving your hair growth the boost it needs. Nioxin is not just for woman it is unisex!

Strong and healthy hair begins below the surface of the scalp. Follicles can easily be clogged with sebum, hardened collagen and layers of dead skin cells. If follicles are clogged, strands cannot grow from them. The more follicles that are blocked, the fewer strands of hair that will grow. This is what makes the scalp noticeable and gives the impression of balding. Hair that does manage to grow will be weak which means hair will break easily, and they will thin out.

At the salon we offer a consultation using a Nioscope, a specialised magnifier to study the scalp, we take a very close up look at the scalp, magnified to 200%. We can show clients before and after images of their scalp so that you can see for yourself how the salon treatments are producing results. Unlike any old microscope, a Nioscope projects the view onto a monitor so clients can see their own scalp on a screen. A dermabrasion treatment is then carried out.


Dermabrasion treatment is a facial for the scalp. This is an in salon treatment and what it does is it removes dead skin cells & product build up, increases circulation and excess sebum to renew scalp skin to provide the perfect foundation for Thicker, fuller looking hair.This would be the first step and recommended to get done every 4-6 weeks than you are set to start the subscribed 3 part system which is an at home process.


Nioxin system has 6 different treatment based on the type of hair of an individual. Everyone have different kind of hair ranging from thin ,length, natural, highly dense, coloured ,straight ,curly ..oh this list could go on & on without an end. So that is why Nioxin came up with six parts based on type of hair . You will be provided with best suited category of Nioxin product ranging from 1 to 6 to suit your hair, but whatever you do, DO NOT pick your own number out as using the wrong number will be no benefit. You will need to wash your hair every day to see a quicker result.

In your 3 part system there is:

  • Cleanser – This is your shampoo it removes follicle clogging sebum and environmental residues from the scalp skin and hair.
  • Optimise – This is your conditioner it is very lightweight and helps provides moisture, balance and helps the hair by reducing hair loss due to breakage. With this conditoner you massage into the scalp.
  • Treat – This is your scalp treatment it increases the diameter of each hair strand. Helps provide a refreshed scalp.Some users report redness of the scalp, which generally disappears after a week or two of continued use.  If the redness persists, try using either less frequently and/or in smaller doses.


There is another product called Diaboost which  is a leave in treatment used to increase the thickness of each exisiting hair strand for a fuller looking head of hair. This penetrates the hair and makes it manageable, full aswell as strengthening the hair at home. This allows it to grow longer and its as if you had up to 11,000 more hair strands. You apply this on clean damp hair directly on the root are to cover the scalp and massage in. Comb through hair and than blowdry and usual.


There is more products in the Nioxin range including more treatments and styling products. Information about these will be up in another blog post as these products are the main priority. If you look after your skin why not look after your hair!!

If you worry about thinning hair your not alone 😔
Thinning hair is a major issue, more than 50% of men & women suffer from thinning hair at some point in their life.

The Brush Egg

Let me make something clear: I hate cleaning my make up brushes. Honestly, Ill find every and any excuse not to do it! I came across the Brush Egg on the internet so I ordered it on Ebay for about €1.50 here. This is the best tool I have discovered for cleaning make up brushes. Say goodbye to the days you spend ages over the sink..

What it does is it has various ridges that you run your brushes across when you wash them and it gets rid of more dirt and old make up-y gunk that often still sits in between the fibres. Its very easy to use. Theres a small open part you can place your fingers inside so its less hassle.I wash my make up brushes in the sink with Johnsons baby shampoo (But I wont go into detail with that as that post is coming soon!) You use the bigger ridges for your bigger brushes (i.e Foundation, blush etc) and the smaller round ridges for your smaller brushes (i.e eyeshadow, eyeliner etc).

I highly recommend purchasing one as it makes cleaning make up brushes so much easier and faster! **Currently doing my happy dance**

Spring Haul

Yesterday I took a little trip to Kilkenny with my boyfriend. I love going kilkenny for a day out and the atmosphere is great up there specially on a nice summers day! Penny’s is what does it for Waterford since the upgrade but other than that.. So why not take a little trip away and I wanted to buy a few things to treat myself for my birthday which is on Tuesday ☺

So firstly I went to ONLY. They had Easter deals on which was great! I picked up these:




Firstly were these jeans which are just fab👌 they are skinny style and are very soft material which makes them extra comfy! They were also in white and a pale blue but of course I’d have to go for the darker colours 🙈
Since i love everything black rhese had to be bought! They are slightly a washed denim look with a leather strip down the side which makes them that bit dressy and different!
I than added a bit of colour to my life, I bought these fab colour jeans which I don’t know how to explain (a greeny blue colour)? These can be brightened up in summer with a nice flowery shirt. These were €10.95 each or two for €16.95!

I than picked up this light grey oversized jumper. I have been looking for a nice one for a while now and what I like about this one is the high neck line and the 3/4 length sleeves. The material is very light which is good as in Ireland the weather is never that great so on them sunny days but have that chill this is ideal! I can’t wait to pair this jumper with a nice simple long necklace. This was €24.95

Than I went to RIVER ISLAND. I have to say I was so happy with the clothes in this season I wanted everything!! And when there was a sale I was straight to it! here




First I picked up this stripe long tshirt. I was looking for one like this but couldn’t seem to find a nice one. This ticks all the boxes for me it’s light material and the slits up the side make it dressy! I’m usually not one for slogan tops unless they have a good one! As some can be pointless and ruin the top! This slogan is “Paris is always a good idea” , which is so true! This paired with jeans, ankled boot heels and a bouler hat 💖. This was €33 reduced to €14


Aaaaand another stripe! I was eyeing this up back home in Waterford but was waiting till pay day and when I seen it on the sale rack it in my size, it had to be mine! What I love about this top is the detail. I love the striped boxes style, the pocket, sleeves rolled up abit and the twisted detail in the front. Also the front is that bit shorter than the back so you could even tuck it into your jeans or leave it out! This was €45 reduced to €24. Only thing is I do have to wash it as it has abit of makeup on the collar.




Lastly I bought it flowery shirt! I love shiffon shirt’s  no matter what the style or print! This caught my eye in someone’s hand and had to have it, and thankfully there was a few more left on the railing. What I love about River Island shirts lately they have open backs or slits! This one has a slight slit going up half way! This makes it that bit more dressy and different. The print in this is fab you can wear any colour with this really!


I than went to penny’s to have a look and see if there was anything different, this shop is so much smaller than the Waterford one but I did come out with a few things. Usually that’s were I spend all of my money 🙈
I bought 2 crop tops, one in black and the other in black and white stripes. Crop tops are big in now and will be more specially coming into summer! But these show the right amount of skin as they have a high neck line and have short sleeves. Will love wearing these with my black disco pants. These were €4 each.
I than bought another slogan top this is a vest top for summer paired with denim shorts be lovely! This slogan says ” make it happen”. This was €3.
I than just bought sunglasses which are rounded frames and have that leapord print style! They were €3.
And I bought a very simple gold necklace. It’s long with just a simple straight line that’s dented abit on one side which will go lovely with the grey jumper I bought! That was €2.

Now if you never heard of this place or never been you NEED to go! It’s my new addiction 💖 and what’s a trip to Kilkenny without going into this fab store!


Everything in this shop is so unique! Trust me you will need abit of money going in here because you will so much stuff! I was going mad though it was the last shop I went to 🙈 I did buy two scarfs which I will wear as headbands or tie around my handbag to dress it up!


I picked up the pink one first and it just has the 3 colours in squares going around it and seen it was €3.95 for one and €5 for two so after 5 mins of rummaging through the box and my boyfriend telling me to just pick 2 I came across this royal blue one! I LOVE it, Royal blue is a lovely colour and than it has black tassle kind of things on the edges on it! I also bought a nude turban but I forgot to get a picture of that!
This shop have amazing stuff there sequin tops/cardi 💜 here is a few pictures of what they would have:





Hope you enjoyed my haul ☺ I was planning on doing a makeup look but I woke up being sick today and stuck to the bed.. but I promise to have one soon ☺
