Winners: Al’chemy Competition!

It’s been two weeks since we ran the Al’chemy Competition and it’s time to announce the wonderful winners…!

Now you see, there is only one main prize (a bumper hair care pack worth $90), but two of the answers thrilled me so much that I will be giving away a tube of the Alchemy Gingko and Jojoba Intensive Moisture Vitamin Masque to the lucky runner up!

Drum roll please…


Mia, aka starletskye, for her adorable recount of stealing dollops of shampoo & condish from Mum and this amazing set of words…

“Waking up every morning to the sight of those familiar black tubes and bottles with the endearing little botanical pictures and then squeezing a portion into my hand, to then massage through my depressed locks, my shower stall steaming up and filling my senses with the beautiful out-of this world scentsโ€ฆ!!! That is heaven to me!
This prize would make my hair happy for that reason and If my hair had the ability to smile it would be walking around all day with a 10,000 mega watt smile, bursting with happiness.”

Just wow Mia! Please e-mail me your postal details and we’ll get your shower heaven started ASAP!

Runner Up!

Ghabby, for her ‘Unfinished Fairytale’ poem! Seriously check it out, the last comment here, very creative! Please e-mail me your contact details and I’ll send out the Masque to get your hair all fixed from Prince Charming and his wayward hair climbing maneuvers!
