Organic Care System and Hounds for Heroes

We recently held a charity day at my office to support Hounds for Heroes, which is a charity training assistance dogs for men and women injured while serving in the UK's Armed forces and Emergency services.  I asked a couple of PRs if it would be possible for them to donate something to be given away as a prize to help us raise some moneyand was really pleased to receive two sets of from the fabulous Organic Care Systems brand including their aqua boost and power build products.  As the name suggests, the products use organic and natural ingredients, and they're not tested on animals.

I wrapped them up in some pretty cellophane and ribbon to get them ready to give away in our raffle.

OCS also kindly sent me some little samples of their products to try for myself.  I got a shampoo and conditioner from the aqua boost range, which are really moisturising.  They're not really right for my hair type as I have very oily hair, but I do get dry ends so I tend to alternate between shampoos for oily and dry hair.  

I was also sent a spray gloss which I really liked - my hair can look particularly dull after lots of washing and heat styling and a shine spray is the kind of product I tend to forget about using, so it made a real change to my routine to try this.  I used the spray right at the end of styling and it really helped to control any little frizzies.

On the charity day we also had an old fashioned guess the weight of the cake competition and I made this chocolate and vanilla cake with little dogs on it :) 

We also put together our own tuck shop to sell penny sweets and cakes as well as having a raffle, auction, tombola and bingo.
