Review & Giveaway: Hapuna Haircare Range by Paul Brown Hawaii*

I'm so excited to introduce you to a range of haircare you probably haven't heard of before.  Paul Brown Hawaii Haircare is relatively new to Australia and is the reason I've been having not just "good hair days" but Amazing Hair Days for the past few weeks.  Yup I said it.
Just to give you some background on my hair; it is naturally fine and I have an oily scalp but dry ends.  I hate products that leave residue in my hair and so thus far haven't been a huge fan of any hair oils or shampoo and conditioners that leave any type of film on the hair.  I generally have to wash my hair everyday or else shove it in a pony tail on the second day. 
Ok ok enough about me I'll get on with telling you about these products I've fallen in love with....

The Hapuna Volumizer Shampoo and Volumizer Conditioner* is designed for people with fine, thin hair and works to not only cleanse the hair but add volume dimension too.  These products are specially formulated with Paul Brown's Hawaiian Protein Flora Complex and are free from sodium chloride, sulfates and parabens.  It also contains sunflower seed extract to help protect and prolong haircolour.
The shampoo lathers up really easily and instead of my obligatory 2 washes I can usually get away with only washing once (twice if I've been working out or it's been a hotter day).  The conditioner is very lightweight and I work a decent size through my hair concentrating more on the ends where my hair is driest.  To trial this properly I didn't use any other products in my hair, blowdried it as per normal and was really surprised with the outcome. 
The biggest thing I found with this haircare range is that it really delivered on the volume claims.  As I mentioned before I've been having amazing hair days (if I do say so myself ha) and it's all due to these products.  My hair feels so lightweight and clean and my roots are noticeably volumised.  The other difference I noticed is that my hair is starting to get some shine back into it and it's been a long time since I've seen that.  Overall I have been really impressed with the results.
The Shampoo and Conditioner are both 296 ml and retail at $29.95 for the Shampoo and $32.95 for the Conditioner.
The other product that I was sent along with the Shampoo & Conditioner is the Hapuna Argan Oil with Kukui Nut Lipids Finishing Shine Serum.  As I mentioned earlier I'm not a huge fan of oils as I find they're just too heavy for my fine hair but I thought I'd give this a chance anyway and try it out.  Boy am I glad I did.  This is the first hair oil that I've tried that actually is lightweight and I can't tell it's in my hair.  There's no "shiny" residue, no sticky feeling in my hair and I can still go 2 days without washing my hair when I wear it.  I apply one small pump of this oil only into the ends of my damp hair before blow drying and it leaves my hair really soft and also amps up the shine factor.  This oil comes in a generous 59ml bottle and is retailed at $34.95
I will let you know that I was gifted these products to trial but all thoughts and opinions are purely my own.  I can honestly say I am really impressed with these products.  If you are interested in purchasing these products they are available in selected salons or online at

Let's be honest though when you're introduced to a new brand like this it's one thing to read a positive review and it's another to get the chance to try them out for yourself.  That's why the lovely people who supply Paul Brown Hawaii would like to give my readers (that's you) the chance to win the three products I mentioned above!

  3. I like to use Pantene products, and Schwarzkopf oil.

  4. I love Lush's product BIG which YOU got me on to :) and Redken anti-snap is a life saver

    1. It was a short love affair with Big - I still have half a container of it sitting there but Hapuna is even better!! I have the Redken Anti-Snap too but it doesn't seem to do anything in my hair so I stopped using it..

      Good Luck xx
