This is probably my last post of the year where I talk about Summer and it only seems apt to talk about how we can fix the damage it may have done :P. The Summer sun is wonderful but can ruin our dyed hair, going swimming is also wonderful but the chlorine from the swimming pool can definitely take its toll on the softness of our hair. With this in mind I have found the best shampoos, conditioners and treatments to help your hair go back to its lush texture so you can swish it about all winter long.
EASY EVERYDAY HELP
I have wanted to try IGK for so long. I have heard so many people raving about their products for so long. I have been using this shampoo and conditioner for a couple of weeks now and I love it. The texture is incredible thick and rich and feels like it is really doing you some good. The shampoo feels like it gives a good clean and the conditioner which it suggests you leave on for a few minutes (I leave it on for the time that it takes me to shave my legs) feels so dense in your hair, as if it is coating every strand of hair down to its core. After using it my hair has that thick soft feel that it does after you have been to the salon for a hair refresh. It also smells divine and like salon products and they are packaged like little glitter balls of delight that you want to show off in your bathroom.
These two products from Color Wow are great for at home hair transformations as good as the salon professionals would use on you in chair. I have been using Color Wow’s Dream Coat for months and months now and love it, not only for the fact it’s a great product but it’s also eye catching and has a fantastic pump spray!! The Color Wow One-Minute Transformation and Coconut Cocktail both smell incredible and work wonders with such easy application. I love products that you can use in-shower. I can never be bothered to use a product on my hair that you have to use on “towel dried” hair and then wait around cold and dripping in a towel. You get none of that fuss here.
Rita Hazan again…can you tell I like her products? 😉 I last featured her earlier this week in my covering grey hairs blog post. This little dream set is her Weekly Remedy Treatment. The luxurious packaging and the scent of the products make you feel like you are in for an amazing pamper session. Let us now talk about Olaplex…my goodness there is an insane amount of hype surrounding it and oh boy I now get it and feel like I am in the in-crowd! The one that I have tried out this month is the Olaplex Hair Perfector No.3. There’s something about the simplicity of the packaging and small 100ml bottle that makes you feel like you have got your hands on a gem that you need to take pride in. Olaplex was initially only used in-salon but is now more widely available. If you have seriously damaged hair or regularly use hair dye then Olaplex will be a great addition to your hair care. There are 3 steps to the Olaplex treatment and No.3 is the at home treatment.
Have you tried any of these products? Which is your favourite? Are there any other miracle hair products I should know about?
