Pureology Shampoo & Conditioner serious colour care
When I take a break from a salon visit, it is the week to try new products for my coloured treated naturally curly hair. I choose to wear my hair straight in the winter, so I have to give it some good loving, like drinking lots of water, hair vitamins and natural products to take care of it.
This Veganuary I took these babes for a test drive which turned into a sulfate-free hair day with a spa-like tingle. First I started using the STRENGTH CURE™ SHAMPOO. The Strength Cure Shampoo is for damaged hair and those of us who want to grow their hair.
Pureology-Shampoo & Conditioner
This shampoo was like a rescue cure for my hair. After rinsing it out, it felt like velvet. The calming lavender, honey-inspired accord, peach and vanilla ingredients gave my hair a home spa treatment it needed and smelled lovely after.
Next up is the HYDRATE® CONDITION. Also, Sulphate-free is concentrated and a moisturizing conditioner. My hair devoured it and did not nee much to soak in all the goodness. Just what my dry hair asked for without stripping the hair. The texture of the product makes your scalp single with the goodness of their signature aromatherapy blend of Peppermint and Green Tea. My hair felt even softer.
ikoo Infusions THERMAL TREATMENT WRAP
I personally am forever trying to grow my hair. I actually slept with it on so my curly tresses absorbed up all the natural extracts.
Color Protect & Repair
The ikoo Thermal Treatment Wrap – Color Protect & Repair protects your hair from the harmful effects of everyday influences. Their formula gently and deeply maintains healthy hair structure and regenerates damaged roots and ends while also revitalizing the scalp. My hair felt more robust and shinier after rinsing it out.
The pleasant heat development makes of the application a wellness experience and ensures that the care substances penetrate the hair structure particularly well.
Lavender oil, basil and a variety of other natural extracts help to strengthen the hair. Basil oil stimulates the scalp and promotes healthy hair growth.
This home hair pampering in a pack is absolute beauty on a budge secret for all hair types. Drink more water to grow your hair then treat it with a nourishing natural hair wrap.
