CEL haircare review

3 Jun 2020


Hello! It’s been a long time since I’ve written a beauty review, and when I say a long time it’s been two years...but we’re getting back on the horse! I used to love writing about products I had been trying out and I still go straight to the review section before buying anything! If I see a product trending or a beauty service online, blogger reviews are generally what’s going to convince me that I need whatever it is in my life. 
If you’ve followed me for a long time you’ll know I have indulged a lot in changing up my hair. It’s been pink, green, orange, white, but I always go back to dying it black and trying to get it healthy again. This is actually the healthiest my hair has ever been, whilst also being the longest, including my fringe! I started growing out my fringe two Christmas’ ago and it’s finally past my chin and blended with the rest of my hair. Whilst having my crazy hair adventures one thing I’ve always bought an abundance of is haircare products, so when CEL got in touch I was excited to try them out.  

With my hair being naturally curly I don’t usually put any heat onto it. I go to bed with my hair wet a lot if I’m honest, straightening only my fringe on the odd occasion if it’s a crazy hair day. That’s the extend of the damage I do these days, but there are still things I want to improve. I have a very sensitive scalp so I never put my hair up, but it also means my scalp can be very dry. If I’m ever to review a haircare product that’s the first thing I want it to fix! I have used the products for about two months now and I can say there is a big noticeable difference in not only the thickness of my hair, but how moisturises it has been!





Microstem Shampoo


A powerful blend of scientifically-optimized plant extracts, including Ginseng and Biotin, strengthens hair and promotes new hair growth.  Best for thin, flat hair lacking volume. Key ingredients: Ginseng, Biotin, Glycerin, Saw Palmetto.

The Shampoo* comes with both a bottle lid and then the nozzle to attach if wanting to pump the product into your hand! Open it up the smell is amazing, which makes shampooing your hair at least pleasant for a mundane task! My hair has always been super thick, but after two months of using the product, I have noticed how strong and really healthy the product has made it. It’s thick on the ends which can sometimes be a problem when you get dry hair. I also noticed my scalp hasn’t been as sensitive and not dry at all. I have noticed new hair growth too but this could be because I’m pregnant (apparently that’s a thing?).
Microstem Conditioner 

A powerful blend of scientifically-optimized plant extracts, including Ginseng and Biotin, strengthens hair and promotes new hair growth.  Best for thin, flat hair lacking volume. Key ingredients: Ginseng, Biotin, Glycerin, Saw Palmetto.

The Conditioner* nozzle for some reason was a lot harder to use, which I assume is because the liquid is thicker than the shampoo. I found it really hard to pump, and ended up just taking the nozzle off, which isn’t a big deal. Like the shampoo it has done wonders for my hair! I felt like the conditioner did take a couple of weeks for me to notice any difference, but it’s give my hair more moisture and made it thicker.



Microstem Hair Thickening Mask


A powerful blend of scientifically-optimized plant extracts, including Ginseng, strengthens and smooths hair. Best for dry, damaged and frizz-prone hair in need of taming. Key ingredients: Ginseng, Biotin, Glycerin, Saw Palmetto.

I applied the hair mask* after shampooing and conditioning, for at least ten minutes+ whilst I just did other things you do in the bath! I already have very very thick hair, but I have noticed a difference on the ends and even roots! This product also smells lovely, which is a big positive as you’re sat with it on your hair for a while to let it soak in. I do think that is has made my hair less frizzy as well as making my scalp no longer dry! With me not styling my curls much I want my hair to sit smooth with frizz, and I do think this product has help.

Microstem Hair Stimulation Formula 


A concentrated oil-based blend of plant extracts, including Asparagus Stem Cells and Biotin, encourages new hair growth and fights hair loss. Best for thin, flat hair lacking volume. Key ingredients: Asparagus Stem Cells, Biotin, Glycerin.
I’ve used hair oils before, so it’s easy to just pop them on in the morning as part of your routine. This hair stimulation formula* has definitely helped my ends, but after massaging it into my roots it’s also helped to strengthen and stop snapping. I’ve had tones of new hair growth, which I think is down to this product and me also being pregnant. Your hair goes through a lot of changes when you’re in the preggo club! 




I loved these products! They do have a higher price point than I would usually go for, but to bring back your hair from the damaged club, makes it worth the purchase! 

Until next time, J x
