Favorites are something that I’ve not really done. The most I talk about products is either a review or empties post… I’m exploring new territory here! It’s new and over time will improve. But for the time being, these are products that I’ve been using over and over, my current beauty favorites! I would typically start from left to right, but I think I’ll sort by category:
I’m so picky when it comes to hair care. Growing up in a salon made it difficult to trust anything that’s sold in the drugstore. You can’t imaging how many times, from various stylists, about how there’s nothing of high quality in the drugstore. However, as time went on, and times got financially trying, I began to venture to the land of cheaper deals for hair care. In comes OGX. I’ve always been curious about the brand and had wanted to try their products, but I never knew where to start. I’ve been lucky enough to be sent some products, so today we’ll talk about a set I recently emptied. Let’s chat about the OGX Weightless Hydration Coconut Water Shampoo & Conditioner.
So what is the OGX Weightless Hydration Coconut Water range? This range is coconut water based and is, “…an ultra-light splash of hydration infused with coconut water, electrolytes and coconut oil helps take your hair from parched to silky, shiny perfection.” So did this range provide that? I’ll go through the ingredients and then talk about my experience with the products.
There’s nothing I love more than a good clarifying shampoo. As someone who washes their hair at most three times a week, one of those washes needs to be a clarifying wash to remove excess oils and product. I can’t stress enough how amazing it feels when your hair is just clean. Not stripped and dry, but clean and lightweight. While I currently have a favorite, I figured I should use the samples I have from all the boxes I’ve gathered. This brings us to today’s #SampleSunday, the Number 4 Clarifying Shampoo. We’ll take a look at what the brand claims the product does, a brief look at the ingredients and then my thoughts.
Starting with the brand claims, Number 4 states the Clarifying Shampoo is a, “weekly deep cleansing therapy that doesn’t strip moisture or color.” Additionally, the Number 4 says this is “…nutritive to scalp, hair and shower decor. It is the perfect go-to product for anyone desiring a deeper clean without sacrificing condition.” Number 4 also states this can be used weekly or daily to remove build-up or oils. Another note, this shampoo is free of sulfates and parabens and is vegan and gluten free.
So now, let’s jump into the ingredients and then go over my general thoughts on using this product. Below are the ingredients (as listed on CosDNA):
Today I have something different for you. Sundays are typically reserved for sample reviews, but this is a full size review. In fact, a review of a type of product I’ve not heard of! What’s that? A sugar texturizing spray! I’ll be talking about the Number 4 Jour d’automne Sugar Texturizing Spray. I’ll look at the ingredients, how I used it and my thoughts on whether or not this is worth it.
I’m a huge fan of texturizing sprays, but I find that I’m not a fan of the grittiness. I know, seems weird right? They seem to go hand-in-hand, but should they? Number 4 graciously sent me a bottle of this and I’m here to tell you what I think. I’ve tested this on both wet and dry hair and layered on and under other other products. So let’s see what the deal is!
Happy Sunday everyone and welcome to the first #SampleSunday post on the blog! Now that the weekend is winding down, let’s chat about a product I finished not too long ago. This is the Living proof. Restore Mask Treatment. I’ll start off and say I’m a huge hair product junkie. I mean, I’m a product junkie in general, but I do stash an obscene amount of hair products. And with that, I also like to try a ton of hair products. I’m all for trying the latest to soften and strengthen my dry, chemically-treated hair.
Ok, so what is the Living proof. Restore Mask Treatment? Living proof. describes this as an “intensive weekly treatment that nourishes each strand, increasing strength and manageability, leaving hair soft, shiny and smooth.” Basically a weekly mask that conditions and strengthens the hair. But how? Oh you better believe Living proof. has an answer for that. According to the brand, the Restore Mask Treatment “is formulated with Living Proof’s moisture-controlling molecule, PolyfluoroEster, to restore the protective layer on dry or damaged hair and reduce hair’s porosity by 100%. Restore makes dry or damaged hair look, feel, and behave like virgin hair and increases hair’s resistance to breakage up to nine times while healing, protecting, and preventing further damage.” Damn, that’s intense. Basically they made some shit up to give you great hair. Another thing to note is that product is free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs and triclosan.
So before we get too far into examining the product, let’s take a look at the ingredients (as listed on CosDNA):
