So you want shiny, healthy hair? 😎 Let me help
I’m back with another Amazon find, that will change ya life!! 🤑 If you’re like me, your hair is dry, damaged (color or heat) and loves a protein treatment. This is not an exact dupe of Olaplex (literally nothing is, it is a patented formula so beware of anyone claiming to be). However, this replicates some of the benefits that an Olaplex treatment gives you for a fraction of the price. Pros: Affordable Works for every hair type Delivers SHINE honey and hair feels healthier Defines curls, waves after rinsing Cons Small bottle, be conservative with application (maybe 1x a month) If you are protein sensitive this won’t be for you.

BEST Hair Mask for ONLY $7!!
If you have dry or coarse hair, especially if you’ve bleached your hair before, you NEED this hair mask. It’s only about $7 on Amazon and is AMAZING!! So amazing I have to spread the word!! Keep in mind, I’ve used high end hair masks like Olaplex and have paid $100+ for salon hair treatments and neither of them compare!! This mask is literally saving my bleached hair!! My hair is soooo soft now and smells amazing! I literally can’t stop touching my hair because I’m amazed by how smooth it feels. Before, I could barely brush my hair through because it was so brittle. Two times using this mask and it’s made such a difference already! I love this mask so much that I even bought the leave in conditioner on top of the shampoo and conditioner for the line!! But if anything, at least get this hair mask! It’s so much more affordable than Olaplex and way better as well. I really wish I had a before picture to show the difference, but trust me when I say my hair was a wreck before this mask!!Elizavecca - Cer-100 Collagen Coating Hair Protein Treatment

My hair is softer, shiny, and looks a lot healthier because I haven’t had much breakage! . . When using No3 I use once week and leave it on overnight or couple hours all depends!! I typically wash my hair every 3 days because I color my hair I don’t want the color or highlights to fade! . .

THOUGHTS ON OLAPLEX SHAMPOO
OLAPLEX - No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo I’ve been using this product for a year and a half or so. Here are my thoughts on this product: OVERALL OPINION: I have very dark thick curly hair. I got it highlighted a lighter honey blonde color about 6 years ago, and my hair texture has never been the same. It became very course, had so much breakage, and had lost its overall shine. It did not look healthy or feel healthy & I’ve tried so many different shampoos & treatments to try to address all my problems: Paul Mitchell, OGX, Redken, and a few others. Nothing helped. After hearing so many good things about Olaplex as a brand, I decided to try it out for myself. Best hair decision I’ve ever made. I no longer have any breakage [or at least no where near what I had before]. My hair feels and looks healthy. I’m very happy to have discovered this product. USE: I use this every time I wash my hair [about once a week]. It does lather a bit, and a little goes a long way. SCIENCE: Olaplex products contain a compound called bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate, which is meant to reconnect disulfide sulfur bonds in the hair. Disulfide bonds are basically two sulfur atoms that link two proteins together. This link determines your hair’s shape & strength,& when that link is damaged with coloring or bleaching, you experience breakage, dullness, etc. This is why Olaplex is marketed as a brand for people with damaged hair due to coloring treatments! The compound mentioned above helps form artificial bonds between the sulfur atoms in your hair, creating an artificial bridge that allows the hair to repair itself through the new disulfide link that is formed. So, this ingredient is what makes Olaplex a brand that is known for bond maintainence & restoration. VALUE: $28 at Sephora for the full size. I’ve spent so much money trying out other [cheaper] brands that didn’t do anything for me. This does all that I need it to & more, so I’m willing to spend that $28. Also, each bottle lasts me about 5 months [washing once a week] so I get a reasonable amount of product for what I’m paying for. I can’t wait to try out more products from this brand, but for now this shampoo satisfies all my hair needs!

I personally love all of these masks, and they are all my favorite in one way or another! I’ve had the Amika & Living proof mask before so I know I love them already. The Inches mask was new to me, but has quickly become one of my favorite masks. They all leave my hair feeling hydrated & soft. Let’s get into the reasons they won their awards! After several weeks of using the Living proof for the first time I saw lasting results in my hair, it does exactly what it says it does. My hair wasn’t breaking anymore & felt so moisturized The smell is amazing, and Living proof has one of my favorite scents. Their products all really work & im so glad I’ve had this mask to help repair my damaged hair Next, the most nourishing mask, the Amika mask, is something I use if my hair is feeling extra tangled or dry & brittle! I use this if I have used extra heat on my hair during the week & my hair is so much softer & smoother. It is a thick mask, so it penetrates very deep & leaves your hair feeling bomb. Madam CJ walker hair mask, is best for when I want to wear my hair naturally curly/wavy. This hydrated & defines my curls so nicely. It doesn’t make them poofy or frizzy. It manages them so well & it smells like flowers. I also like the small squeeze tube it makes it easy to get the product out of the container. 💧Price VsSize? •Living Proof - $38 for 6.7 oz of product •Amika - $38 for 8 oz of product •Madam CJ Walker - $26 for 6oz of product Madam CJ walker is the most price friendly & it is my favorite for curly hair! So I will defiantly be purchasing the full size product when I run out of this one!

styling oil, increases shine, softness and color vibrancy, minimizes frizz and fly-aways, provides heat protection up to 450 degrees F I have been using this oil for a few months, and omg I’ll always have this in my hair routine. It really does exactly what it says it’s going to do. _____________________________________________ ⭐️performance | full star | noticed results after first use, tested twice without using in routine and shine decreased as well as ends looking frayed . ⭐️texture | full star | super lightweight, blends into hair nicely without leaving hands greasy . ⭐️scent | full star | subtle, but it smells soooo good . ⭐️packaging | no star | non-recyclable plastic, would be much more user friendly with a sprayer or pump ⭐️ingredients | .75 star | unclear on sourcing of some ingredients . ⭐️value | full star | $28 seems steep, but I’ve only used about a fourth of the bottle in six months. I use it every wash, 6-10 drops . .

How to maintain Healthy Glory Hair
KÉRASTASE - Elixir Ultime Oil Serum SIZE: 3.4 oz/ 100 mL $62.00 CAD This is basically one of my holy grail products. KÉRASTASE hair oil is perfect for all hair hair types: straight, wavy, curly and coily that can be used before, during, and post blow dry for hair that’s super-shiny, hydrated, and healthy-looking. I am impressed by the smell and feeling. One thing I really like about this is the smell; it does becomes less potent after time though. It leaves my hair so soft, tangle free and smells good. Leaves a bit of shine too. It is oil texture but very light weighted. Highlighted ingredients are Maize Oil: Procaxi Oil; Argan Oil and Camellia Oil which adds suppleness and softness to your hair. It not only smooths and shine the hair but also nourishes at the same time. It’s more light a hair serum. I se this on my ends before drying/styling and i use it to keep frizz down when i wear my hair naturally curly/air dried. my hair is shiny and less frizzy, more manageable. I will be buying this again. Briogeo - Farewell Frizz Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Cream SIZE 4 oz/ 118 mL $30CAD I absolutely love this hair product! Leaves my hair feeling soft and moisturized and smells great! It is creamy texture with the lightweight finishing formula Infused with a Briogeo signature oil that smooths hair, enhances shine, tames frizz, and heat protects. The main formula is Rosehip Oil, Argan Oil and Coconut oil that protects hair from free-radical damages and extensive conditioning. I put it on my dry hair, especially after I use a flat iron. For about 10-15 minutes. Sometimes I applied this product and it blew out soft, smooth, and incredibly shiny. Now I used it on wet hair whether it is blown dry or dries naturally. I feel that it helps deter frizz and combat dryness against breakage, environmental impurities and excess heat. Overall this product gives my hair a great shine boost, and added moisture to my dry ends and does a fantastic job of protecting my hair from my blow dryer and curling iron. Recommend this to girls who uses irons frequently like me!
