My Holy Grail Hair Products | Softest, Shiniest Hair Ever
Hello and welcome back!
In today's post we're going to be talking about something I never talk about and never thought I would talk about and that is hair care.
I feel like before we continue it's only right to let you know a few things about my hair.
1. I have very thick, very curly/wavy hair
2. My hair gets very greasy very quickly. Day two hair on me looks like day 4 hair. Eugh.
I've had long, layered hair and then about two years ago I decided to chop it all off and, much to my mother's discontent, I never went back. I'm completely lazy when it comes to styling so my long hair was always tied up or in a bun smack dab on top of my head. So, bye bye long hair!
For the most part my hair is fairly healthy. I've never dyed my hair much to most people's disbelief and I don't think I ever will. Sometime's I like to toy with the idea of going blonde but I just don't think it's for me right now. Honestly, I always thought my hair was a little damaged because of how often I used to heat style it or wrap it up in tight ponytails but my hairdresser was in awe of the great condition it was in. Score!
Recently, on one of my many, many Target Runs, I was perusing the personal care aisles and came across a brand I'd heard about but never tried: Love Beauty & Planet. Now, since I've made a recent change to start taking better care of myself (eating better, being more active, etc) I started thinking more about the products I use in and on my body as well.
Love Beauty & Planet is vegan and cruelty free. I've heard nothing but good things about the brand so I decided to pick up their Coconut and Ylang Ylang Hope and Repair shampoo & conditioner. Riiiiight underneath that was the Raw Sugar Healing Power Hair Mask. Ever since I moved to California I noticed a lot of changes in my body: drier lips, drier skin, drier hair...well, you get the picture. So, I decided to pick that up as well in hopes of nourishing my hair.
Guys. The change I saw in my hair was un-freaking-believable. I've used the shampoo & conditioner by themselves a couple of times now and find that they leave my hair feeling smooth, and light, and healthy. For once in my life I can be on day two or day three hair and not have a greasy, disgusting mess on my head. It nourishes my natural curls so I don't have to depend so heavily on heat styling to make sure my hair looks great. I also have to wear a hat to work everyday and usually my hair gets all greasy and matted but when I use these products it's still soft and smooth!
The Raw Sugar mask just takes your hair to that next level. After I've shampoo'd & conditioned my hair I work this mask in and leave it on for about 7-10 minutes in the shower. Never in my life has my hair been SO. SOFT. Not to mention shiny! In total I think I spent around $25 for all three products which, to me is a steal considering some high end brands cost $20 for just the shampoo and they never left my hair feeling this healthy.
If you guys decide to try it out - let me know! I want to see how it works on others!
