Hair Care Review: 3 Products From Fabriah

Introducing Fabriah
  • Save

There’s something about a good hair day that’s able to boost my confidence tenfold. As a shy 11 year old I hid behind it, and although I’m thankfully more confident now, it’s still a comfort blanket of sorts.

My Hair

…and I have a strong love-hate relationship. It challenges me on a daily basis and thanks me for years of dye with flyaway frizz and little volume. My hair evolution has definitely been dramatic and although I’ve found some products that I love, I think that hair and beauty is always a work in progress. I’m not naturally blonde, so keeping my hair light and bright takes effort and great products. Haircare that’s able to moisturise my fine hair without dragging it down is few and far between, so I cherish those I find.

Merlin Professional Haircare

I’ve recently been trying out a range of Merlin Professional haircare, one of Fabriah’s most popular hair care brands. I’ve been using the following three products for the last month and wanted to share how I’ve been getting on.

Nourish Plus Stabilising Daily Colour Power Shampoo

I really love this shampoo but have personally found it a little too moisturising for everyday use. While it does an amazing job at adding moisture and shine, my fine hair really notices when I stop treating it to volume-boosting shampoo for long periods of time. I began by using this every time I washed my hair (every other day) but have found that reducing use to once a week works best for me. If you have thicker, colour-treated hair I can imagine that this would be perfect for continual use. A bonus is that it smells absolutely incredible.

Raspberry Plus Daily Combination Power Sealer

Daily combination power sealer is basically an elaborate description of ‘conditioner’. This is my favourite of all three products and I’ve been using this, and this alone (in terms of conditioner) since I changed up my routine. It smells incredible- sweet, and a little like raspberry Petit Filous- in a good way. It’s also left my hair feeling incredibly nourished and not weighed down at all (I’ve only been using it on the ends).

Botanical Plus Magnesium Weekly Body Support Power Treatment

I’ve honestly never tried a product quite like this before: a weekly treatment that requires spraying on damp hair and leaving for __ minutes. The concept is essentially the same as a hair mask, only it comes in the form of a spray. It’s designed to revive chemically altered or naturally weak hair (mine is both). Although I was initially sceptical, it does work. Using it leaves my hair visibly stronger and thicker looking. Over the month I’ve used barely any, so it’s definitely one that will last a while so is great value too.

Merlin haircare definitely gets a thumbs up from me. Their products are colour-coded into groups, so for example yellow for very dry hair. The three products I tried varied in category, yet worked brilliantly together. For that reason, I’d really recommend having a nosy at any applicable categories. Mixing and matching may prove more beneficial than religiously sticking to only one.

    Ohh, I’m exactly the same, I hide behind my hair and always have. I used to blush terribly at school and would lean my head forward so that my hair would cover the majority of my bright red cheeks! I rarely wear it up as I feel too exposed. These products sound gorgeous. I mean, raspberry scented?! Right up my street with anything sweet scented. I’ve not heard of this brand so thanks for sharing. x

      It so interesting that you do too! I rarely wear mine up either for the exact same reason but it’s something I’m working on! They really are- the conditioner particularly smells fantastic! x

    Oh the sound of that power hair mask sounds so interesting! Need to give this a go x x

    magnesium is SO important for our overall health and I love that beauty products are using that. This sounds like a good product I want to look into for sure! Great post.

    Love that you go the extra mile with haircare. It is important that we choose quality products – my hairdresser talked about how someone used drugstore products and when she did a treatment on the hair, it caught on fire. Oooh, I love volume shampoos! I can imagine how nice the raspberry sealer smells! Oooh, I haven’t heard of hair masks before. I like the sound of it! Thanks for sharing your haircare products!

    I also have a love hate relationship with my hair, I think because I have to tie it up for work everyday and it just gets shoved into a ponytail I very rarely make an effort with it and when I do I hardly ever like the way it turns out! These products sound absolutely great though!

    The intro made me laugh, I still hide behind my hair half the time. It’s such a security blanket. I’m so lazy with my hair so I like anything that does the job with minimal fuss. The spray treatment sounds ideal for someone like me. I love the sound of the conditioner too. My hair is really long and fairly thick so it often feels heavy on its own. But it’s naturally wavy (and frizzy) so finding something nourishing enough to calm it without being too heavy is always a struggle. Great review! x

      I’m glad to hear it’s quite a common thing! I think hair can be a real struggle for most people- there are all kinds of struggles possible with it aren’t there? It sounds like you’d really get on with some of their products! x

      Hair care is something I definitely don’t enjoy as much as skincare or makeup but recently I’ve made a conscious effort to try out new products! x

    You had me at raspberry scented! Seriously, these sound like amazing products. I’ve not heard of the brand but anything that can restore moisture and shine without adding weight or stickiness has got to be worth trying. My curly hair is colour treated too and I don’t use a hairdryer otherwise I’d end up with a bad Afro. So I’m always looking for something to nourish it and calm frizz. It sounds like the power treatment is probably the one for me. Great review, Sophie, thank you for sharing! x

      Such a gorgeous scent! I think most people could do with a little extra nourishment when it comes to hair, I know I certainly could. I think so too, the power treatment would work well on just about any hair type I think to be honest! Thanks Lisa, I’m glad you liked it! x

    I love the sound of these products, especially a conditioner that smells like raspberry Petit Filous! Sweet scents are my favourite 🙂 The spray hair mask is a wonderful idea, it sounds like a great hair care routine to get into and fantastic that you can notice the difference just in a month. I used to dye my hair a lot so I imagine mine has become weaker over the years, I’ll have to keep my eye out for this brand – all these products all sound so effective and great quality too! Thanks for sharing Soph, fab post! <3 xx
