Review – L’Oreal Color Vibrancy Hair System

8 Feb

I was so lucky to receive a Vox Box from Influenster and asked to review L’Oreal Color Vibrancy Hair System.  I received a full size shampoo, conditioner and hair mask in exchange for doing a review for them on the L’Oreal website.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from a drug store shampoo and conditioner.  However, L’oreal is behind a lot of high end brands too, so I was expecting a good product.

And it delivered.

I’ve used this for a month now, and it’s as good now as it was the first time.  I had products start out good and then sort fail after a few uses.  This keeps on going.  It’s supposed to help preserve your hair color, according to L’Oreal.  And it does but also does so much more.

What I really like:

The scent.  It’ s a sweet feminine scent that lingers on my hair for a few days. I love that!!!

It lathers easily.

It rinses very clean.  My hair feels like it’s free of any residue.

It keeps my hair bright.

The conditioner is very moisturizing.  My hair is very shiny and smooth after each use.  It doesn’t cause build up, and it doesn’t make my hair greasy.

I have zero frizz when I use this.  ZERO

The mask is nice, but I don’t need it with this conditioner.  I’m not sure I need that much conditioning.

What I didn’t like:

Nothing!

Some people have reported this dried out their hair after a few uses. I didn’t have the same experience, but wanted to include it.

Would I buy this for myself?

Yes.  I’m actually curious what other products L’Oreal has in this line.

What an awesome first taste from Influenster!  Thanks!!!

Review – Living Proof Perfect hair Day night cap overnight perfector

28 Dec

fullsizer-jpg

I’m a fan of all Living Proof products, but I was hesitant of the Night Cap Overnight Perfector.  Full size of this costs $28.00

I have been meaning to use this for MONTHS, and I finally made myself this week.  I really wanted to use up a lot of things before the end of the year.

I wasn’t super into an overnight treatment because I am afraid of over-conditioning my hair and having it look greasy.

However, after an unfortunate result from a “curl”spray which shall remain nameless because I really don’t want to write a negative review, my hair was very dry.

I was finally brave and ready to try the overnight treatment to help remedy the mess that was happening on my head.

So, I slathered it on and put my hair in a scrunchie and slept.  I washed it out in the morning to a huge surprise.  MY HAIR WAS AWESOME.  So shiny and hydrated!!!  It’s been shiny for days.  Also, it has not been frizzy and it has tamed any fly aways.

What Sephora Says

What it is:
An easy-to-use solution that provides up to one week of more shiny, vibrant, manageable hair overnight, with benefits that last through five shampoos.

What it is formulated to do:
Night Cap is beauty sleep redefined. It was engineered to intuitively target your hair’s needs for enhanced shine, vibrancy, and manageability delivered overnight, with results that last all week. It boosts shine for days with weightless radiance refractors that outperform silicones and oils. It delivers lasting color vibrancy by combining the patented healthy hair molecule (OFPMA) with long-lasting cuticle sealing technology to help smooth and seal down the cuticle and reduce pigment loss. And it improves hair’s manageability with amino acids that condition and protect strands, safeguarding against daily styling and environmental assaults.

This power-packed formula was engineered to intuitively target and transform the daily weathering of hair. An amino acid blend mimics amino acids found naturally in hair and penetrates into the cortex to keep hair smooth, soft, and supple. Time-release conditioners and antioxidants ensure hair is properly hydrated while remaining strong and protected from environmental assaults. OFPMA combines with biomimetic lipids designed to mimic the lipids found naturally in the F-layer—keeping hair looking, feeling, and behaving its very best.

Does this deliver?

Yes!  I am very happy with the results.

Would I purchase this?  

Yes, it works.  Why would I not purchase it?

Have you used the Living Proof Perfect hair Day night cap overnight perfector?

Review – Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Fresh Rinse

6 Dec

Hello Lovelies!

I was trying to think back to all the concoctions I’ve put on my head over the years, and I honestly do not recall ever using a rinse before.  This was my first!

We all want shiny, healthy hair.  We all want to look like this:

shiny-hair-jlo

 But we end up looking like this:

dry-hair

It’s a constant quest.  One product that promises to bring back the shine to your hair by removing residue and sealing cuticles is the Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse.

lemon-rinse

From Beautiful Nutrition:

Rinse away product buildup, frizz and
dullness in an instant

Restart the clock on healthy hair. Over time, product buildup causes hair to look dull and lifeless. Lemon Rinse™ Gentle Clarifying Treatment returns hair to its natural glory with active lemon extracts that gently cleanse and tone, rapidly restoring weightless body and shine.
My thoughts:
This smells so amazing!  Like fresh squeezed lemons!!!
Does it make your hair shinier?
Yes, it doesn’t give you POW! type shine, but it does make your hair shinier.
Does it strip hair color?
It’s marked as color safe, and my color stayed intact after using it.
Does it make your hair bouncier?
A little, but I wouldn’t call this body building or volumizing.
Would I buy?
I think so.  It’s not a bad product to keep around, especially since it only costs $10.00.
Have you tried a rinse?  Do you like it?
Thanks for reading!
