INOAR Absolut Daymoist CLR Shampoo & Conditioner

For a long time I have been hearing (and well, reading)  about this Brazilian haircare brand that everyone has fallen in love with. When I was given the opportunity to give their products a try ,it had me excited. Number one, I don’t frequent haircare salons that often and yes, like most ladies, I love to have beautiful and perfect hair.

Only problem is, my hair has been a little out of sorts lately and in desperate need of a moisture boost. And these two gems could not have come at a better time.

20150606_155422INOAR claims that these products will intensely condition and recover you hair, while leaving it with added glow and elasticity.

They are packaged in 250ml yellow bottles with a twist cap (which makes life easier by the way, especially when you are in the shower) and the fragrance of both the shampoo and conditioner makes me think of having my hair washed in a salon.

The products itself contains Cornstarch, Beet Extract and Daymoist CLTRM. I do not really have an idea what all of those ingredients each do seperately, but combined they basically maintain the hair strand to increase bounce and elasticity, preserve colour and shine, protects from discoloration and basically prepares your hair for heat styling.

Did it work for me? Yes it did. After the second wash it was as if my hair had received an instant moisture boost, it was noticeably smoother, and my hair was extremely shiny. One would think that because it is a moisturising combo, that my hair would be ‘heavy’, but it did not weigh my hair down at all or leave it greasy whatsoever. My hair was also manageable and easy to style. Not only did this product recover my damaged hair, but it also protects my hair from heat styling after each use.

Will I repurchase it again? Yes, definitely.

There are three products in this range, Shampoo (R220), Conditioner (R220) and the Mask (350). I have only tried the Shampoo and Conditioner, but are dying to get my hands on the mask.

Love,

Leandra

Clean Shiny Hair, Moroccan Style

Every time I end up doing a hair related post I normally always get stuck on the fact that I naturally have a very oily scalp. That means a lot of the products work well but they are not made for me. I initially thought this before I started using the Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Moroccanoil Extra Volume conditioner as I was not expecting it to work for me as an everyday shampoo and conditioner. What i thought is that this could be part of a weekly hair treat, you know one on a Sunday afternoon or when i don’t have to face the world afterwards because my scalp reacts and makes my entire hair look horrible. Well, I was wrong. So very wrong. This has become my everyday (sometimes every second day) hair washing ritual.

I am officially hooked on this product… but before I go into details, lets talk about the product itself….

The packaging is very Moroccanoil style generic, it doesn’t look like much 2 250ml bottles, one white – the conditioner and the other blue – the shampoo. It is specifically for fine hair and those that are looking for some extra volume. It is sulphate free and not tested on animals. It is packed with rich nutrients and argan oil to enrich the hair and make it more healthy, shiny and make it have more body.Moroccanoil

It ticks all of the above and more…  both of the products have a masculine woody scent with a slight accent of a floral note, nothing too empowering though as this Shampoo and Conditioner are designed to be unisex. They do however leave your hair with a very sexy scent that lingers when your hair is flicked.

The Extra Volume Shampoo it is a creamy gel which lathers up quickly and rinsing out easily. It leaves my problematic scalp feeling moisturised but not overly stimulated with no irritation.

The Extra Volume Conditioner is a smooth, lightweight and creamy formula. I visibly noticed that with ease it lifted the sign of any tangles (thank you Cape Town wind!).

Overall, when my hair has been washed with the Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Extra Volume Conditioner I have noticed a visible difference in the condition of my scalp. This I believe is down to the rich argan oil which is present in the products. My hair can last up to two days with no washing (huge achievement for me) and retaining its shine while being naturally lifted from the root. A little certainly goes a long way, to my shampoo bottle I have used only half of my conditioner. So I will need to restock on my shampoo before I have finished my conditioner.

I am going to be stocking up this weekend from my nearest hair salon… You can get your paws on the Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo for R290 and the Moroccanoil Extra Volume Conditioner for R310!

Hair With a Shine

Schwarzkopf, a name unanimous with affordable effective hair solutions.

A while ago, I received the new Schwarzkopf Gliss Million Gloss Shampoo and Conditioner both of which have the most gorgeous brilliant turquoise packaging but it is what is on the inside that counts after all, right? Well, the inside is a hair care formula revolution in gloss and shine which has been designed to leave hair with a flawless gloss that can last up to 10 days after use. The hair is ‘coated’ or ‘laminated’ in a weightless gloss which makes the hair shine bright and reflect light for an added sparkle. The way that it makes the hair shine so bright is that the entire hair is ‘laminated’ in shine that is better than other hair shine products which only partly cover hair leaving a rough surface area that only results in a partial shine. The secret ingredient which assists in the ultimate hair shine is the Gloss Elixir found in in the Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Treatment mask.

Before embarking and using my Gliss Million Gloss shampoo and conditioner, I didn’t think my hair was dull however there has been a noticeable improvement in the shine visiable in my locks. I believe this an affordable solution for beached out hair this summer from all the salt and sunshine which makes hair appear dull and rough. Adding the Gloss Million to your hair care routine will combat this and give you ultra smooth, extra shiny tresses which would rival any haircare advert.

Additionally to the shampoo and conditioner, in the Gliss Million Gloss range there is also a 10-Day Shine Treatment for smooth, high gloss hair for the ultimate long-term dull hair solution.

Dear John, Thank You

Dear John Frieda,

You may think I forgot about you and how you spoiled me, I have not forgotten and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all the wonderful people that work with you (especially Janlyn) for thinking so generously of me and other bloggers alike and completely spoiling us with your new range for our specific hair needs.

The reason it took me so long to use your products is that I’ve been going through some hair problems of my own from an extremely overactive sebaceous gland to major hair loss and I’ve been trying to remedy this problem (cause still unknown) without making it worse. After various attempts and a few weeks waiting I decided I really had to put my box full of goodies which have been sitting in my bathroom to good use. Oh boy, was it a refreshing experience.John Frieda

The Liquid Shine Brilliant Brunette Shampoo and Conditioner range have such a beautiful scent without being over powering. They are not the best Shampoo and Conditioner I have ever used for my hair but bearing in mind my hair is on a whirlwind adventure of its own at the moment, but they are certainly lovely products.

I have not tried to heat styling or the hair spray yet, but the Frizz Ease does help with unruly knots from the wonderful South East Wind that all the Cape Townians love to hate! Although Frizz is not a problem I encounter often, I did notice my hair was exceptionally smooth after using this product. I only use one spray and work it through with a big toothed comb.

Thank you John, once my head decides to sort itself out I promise to try the Luxurious Volume heat protector spray and Luxurious Volume hair spray.

Product Review – Sultans Gold Shampoo & Conditioner

Sultans Gold Shampoo & Conditioner

The Shampoo and Conditioner both have a very light smell, which is absolutely beautiful and lasts on your hair. They contain Moroccan Argan oil which is a bountiful source of Vitamin E and an antioxidant which has anti-aging and anti-wrinkle properties.SULTANS GOLD

The Argan oil which is the main ingredient in these products is absolutely lovely and moisturising and suitable improving hydration and feeding the hair and skin. The bottles are fairly small in size, but with only using a little bit of product for a big result my shampoo and conditioner lasted me over 2 months worth of washes (anyone who knows the length of my hair will be amazed!), with a little extra conditioner left over. Every wash renewed the moisture back into my hair.20130807_190939

Unlike more cream-like substances, the shampoo feels more like a gel in your hand until the water hits it and it effortlessly glides through your hair, once rinsed, your hair feels amazing and smells fresh. Since using the Shampoo and Conditioner my hair has been less dry at the tips (damn you winter and visiting Johannesburg’s dry winter) and feels incredibly healthy. Due to the excessive moisturising properties of the shampoo my forever oily scalp has insisted I wash my hair daily however I can imagine for people who suffer from dry hair and/or dry scalp this product must work like a dream! The tips of my hair feel renewed and my hair shines all day.

For use in oily hair I would suggest only using this product in the drier, winter months as it adds so much moisture into the hair and can very easily start to appear looking greasy. I would suggest anyone to try this product that suffers from dry hair or scalp/dandruff problems for its amazing moisturising properties. Amazing shampoo for R225 is a real steal.

Sultans Gold products are sulphate free, which is great for anyone that colours their hair or struggles from hair fall it also is suitable for anyone who has had a Brazilian blow-wave or similar treatments and doesn’t want to fork out the expensive salon priced products. Sultans Gold additionally is paraben free, which is suitable for everyone. Parabens are used not only in Shampoos and Conditioners but widely in a lot of cosmetics which prolong the shelf life of said cosmetics resulting in minimal bacterial growth which in theory is good, however in practice it is linked to increased levels in Estrogen which can result in premature puberty in teenagers and adding to hair and scalp problems by deteriorating the hair follicles by damaging the hair cuticle which makes the hair dull and brittle.

cruelty free

Lastly the products are vegetarian as they contain NO animal ingredients and are cruelty free. What is not to love about this shampoo and conditioner?
