When applying the lavender-filled Journey hydration hair treatment, it’s important to remember that it is not only used to hydrate your hair but also as a relaxation tool to help you claim your mind and imbue of meditation.
Top 3 key ingredients
Lavender: Not only is lavender a beautiful scent that wafts over you as you sleep soundly. The lavender botanical has soothing and claiming properties that help with inflamed and itchy scalps.
Hydrolysed soy protein: This ingredient is a must-have for those with damaged or brittle hair as it has a fantastic ability to mend and repair hair fibres while improving moisture retention.
Aloe Barbadensis: We all need to have those natural vitamins like A, C and E to promote cell turnover in our scalp and hair. We are revitalising and improving hair growth by giving our hair these vital vitamins.
The journey experience: It’s Sunday night. We had a fun-filled and busy weekend! Now, it’s time for me! I head into the bathroom; I light my favourite candles, I pump four pumps of Journey hydration treatment into my hands. – It is so handy being a pump bottle. Then I apply to my dry hair, focusing on my hair’s weakest or dryest areas, like around the hairline. Then move up to around my crown area, where you tie a high ponytail at the top of your head. If you are like me and love a high pony, make sure you give that part some love. Following by moving down to the ends of your hair, I needed another pump for this one – remember, you don’t need to cover your whole hair till it’s soaking, and with the last remaining product on my hands, I rub it into my scalp. – I wish it felt as good as when I’m at the hairdressers! But my hands will have to do.
Next, I will either have a relaxing bath or read in bed and let the beautiful smell of lavender drift around me. I also use my Y.E.N pillow cover when I wear my treatment to bed as it’s super soft and stops product getting on my other covers. I sleep with journey overnight – I love my Sunday nights! Then in the morning, I shampoo and conditioner with Cortex Care and am ready for another busy and productive week.

which contains vitamins A, C and E. Having all three of these vitamins contribute to cell turnover, which helps cell growth-promoting shiny and healthy hair.
You may think we have only added it for the gorgeous fragrance. That is defiantly one reason. Still, another primary reason is that it is a beautiful ingredient with soothing and calming properties, helping with an inflamed and itchy scalp.
Hydrolyzed soy protein
We love having this in Journey because of its fantastic ability to mend and repair hair fibres. That is why its essential to use Journey after colour services and after using excessive heat on your hair. Our Hydrolyzed proteins help improve moisture retention and elasticity while replacing lost protein.
Butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter.
This beautiful ingredient produces essential oils which nourish and condition your scalp, which helps the follicle’s of your hair flourish and grow. Also great for the ends of your strands, and it helps prevent breakage and split ends.
Macadamia integrifolia seed oil
Is another touch of vitamin E; having vitamin E helps absorb moisture into the hair and scalp. A definite need for those of us with dry and damaged hair! We have also found having this excellent ingredient in Journey has helped improve frizz and fly-a-ways in the hair strand.

Is Journey the same as the old Journey haircare? Yes! Journey is still the hair-loving treatment it has been since 2017 we have just given Journey a little update in 2021. What is different. Journey now comes in a pump bottle, not a tube. Journey has an updated scent. Journey has an extra 60mls for you to enjoy. Is Journey natural? Yes, Journey is 100% natural. Is the Journey bottle recyclable? Yes the bottle, pump and cap are 100% recyclable its make out of PP and PET. The old Journey use to be a 30min treatment now it is an overnight treatment, how come? Great question! We found our clients were getting much better results from leaving Journey in for longer. so we thought why not change it to an overnight treatment to give better results and so much easier to fit into a busy routine. How do I stop getting Journey on my pillowcase? We have the perfect thing for you! The Y.E.N Yes every night cover. This will protect your pretty pillowcase from getting Journey on it and is super soft! You will want to use it every night.
