Hey guys! Sorry it’s been a while since I posted. Life got really busy and crazy. But with this quarantine, I’ve slowly been able to get back to posting my reviews. Over the past month or two, I’ve been trying to test out more of the products I’ve been receiving from my sub boxes. I’m also trying to branch out and get into hair care. So with that let’s get into this review. The amika: - Bust Your Brass Cool Blonde Shampoo
and amika: - Bust Your Brass Blonde Purple Conditioner
IS THE BEST DUO FOR COMBATING MY BRASSINESS! I recently decided to give all my money to my hair dresser. As I was looking at Pinterest to see what color I wanted to do, I was ask at the Sephora website online window shopping the maintenance products that this decision entails. My hair dresser ultimately recommended the products in her salon. She recommended I use the Matrix So Silver Shampoo. I’ve been using Matrix before so I was familiar with it. However I just felt like that stripped my hair from its moisture and left it noticeably dry after a while. I knew it was time for change. I came across the Amika bust your brass line when I was looking for another blonde hair maintenance product. I didn’t know much about it so when I got home I did my research on the product and read reviews. I found out that this shampoo and conditioner duo are free from parabens, sulfates, phthalates, aluminum,talc, and more. Which was a plus in my book! The main awesome ingredients that make this duo stand out are wild cherry bark, avocado oil, and hydrolyzed keratin. •wild cherry bark- this is what gives softens and tones the hair. It also brings out the shine in your hair. •avocado oil which contains amino, folic acid, vitamin A, B6, D, and E which ultimate help with nourishing and moisturizing the hair. •hydrolyzed keratin- helps bring back elasticity and luster to your hair. After my first use of these products I noticed my hair feeling more soft, nourished, less frizz, and looking healthy 😍 my only gripe is that it doesn’t lather into a foamy wash unlike the matrix but I’m ok with it actually because it doesn’t feel like my hair is still dirty or weighed down... this is why I usually why I opt a lathery foam wash. This duo differently helped keep the brass at bay! Wow! I immediately felt the awesomeness of these two products after first use and I will definitely be buying more when my bottles run out!

I have tried the Christophe Robin - Regenerating Mask with Prickly Pear Seed Oil a few times and it makes my hair so soft! I had a few samples of it along with the amika: - Bust Your Brass Blonde Purple Conditioner I mix the two for deep conditioning and help with toning my hair. It makes it so bright and soft and smells amazing!! They are both very thick in texture and I ended up buying a full size of the amika conditioner and I love it. You can get them at Sephora.

Yay to #ecofriendlygifts ‼️Moving on, I think that this set is an awesome holiday gift to someone you know for the holidays.

This trio SMELLS WONDERFUL!The shampoo and conditioner had honestly helped my hair look brighter and shinier. And helped removed the brass tone in my hair. As for the shine cream, it’s a great product that helped protect my hair from heat damage, it added some shine, and helped me detangle, and tamed my stubborn frizz.

Amika kindly sent over the Bust Your Brass shampoo, conditioner, and violet moisture and shine cream. I’ve used this shampoo before to keep my blonde highlights from getting too brassy and I already knew I liked it so I was thrilled to finally try the conditioner with it and the moisture and shine cream too. This whole line works great to keep the brassiness at bay. It also smells so good in typical amika fashion!! amika: - Bust Your Brass Cool Blonde Conditioner amika: - Bust Your Brass Cool Blonde Shampoo amika: - Supernova Blonde Moisture And Shine Cream

#amikagiftedme⁣ ⁣ 💜 Don’t you feel like such a little sneak when you get something from Octoly that you already regularly use?⁣ ⁣ 💜 That’s how I felt when I saw the Amika Bust Your Brass Collection.⁣ ⁣ 💜 Let me just say I’ve never met an Amika shampoo and conditioner I didn’t like. All their shampoos and conditioners give me just the right amount of clean without drying my hair out, but they aren’t so nourishing that I feel like my hair looks greasy the next day either. My waves are smooth and defined after washing just hands down my favorite shampoos and conditioners on the market. ⁣ ⁣ 💜 The Bust Your Brass shampoo and conditioner are tinted purple and give my ombré hair a cool hue and beautiful shine. They contain nourishing ingredients such as keratin, wild cherry bark oil, and avocado oil to keep hair healthy.⁣ ⁣ 💜 The Amika Supernova Blonde Shine Cream is absolutely incredible. I love this for controlling frizz, restoring shine, and defining my waves after I wash my hair. This contains sea buckthorn oil and amino acids for nourishing and protecting hair and increasing shine and is also tinted purple to give a cooler hue and cancel out any brassy tones.⁣ ⁣ 💜 What’s your favorite haircare brand?⁣ ⁣

Kristin Ess is a hair care bra
Kristin Ess is a hair care brand I discovered at Target. The Style Reviving Dry Shampoo is a favorite of mine. It ticks all the boxes for me—Affordable. Invisible. Not too heavy or powdery. No really strong perfume scent. It also manages to be really silky which I’m totally in love with. It’s not too drying or heavy feeling in the hair plus it makes my hair soft and silky. I’m totally obsessed with it The scalp line was intriguing and my favorite is the Purifying Micellar Shampoo & Daily Scalp + Hair Mask. This shampoo has such a nice easy thin texture. It’s SLS free, has no dyes and no fragrance. It’s quite literally perfect. It cleans really well yet so gently. My hair is soft, clean and never stripped when I use this. The mask has such a nice buttery texture. No silicones or heavy slippery polymer feel. This is my favorite kind of hair mask. One that gives amazing hydration without weighing the hair down. I never get oily using this mask. I could actually use it as a conditioner Winter Wheat Signature Hair Gloss is the ultimate dream item I’ve been looking for. I’ve been coloring my hair since I was fifteen. Right around when I went from dirty blonde to brunette naturally. This is a temporary toning gloss you apply in the shower. Or you can dampen your hair, apply and then get in the shower like I did. It reduces brassiness like nothing else I have tried plus adds a glossy shine. I hate purple shampoos because they’re not really that effective & they can leave my hair purple. It’s a miracle product. I just bought two more Overall I really loved this Kristin Ess line. It feels luxury & affordable. My favorites are the Dry Shampoo, Micellar Shampoo, Scalp Mask & Hair Gloss. I love that the line is cruelty free, safe for colored hair and free of sulfates & silicones.

So finally tried out the shampoo and conditioner that released around Christmas time and have a lot of mixed reviews, some people loved it others didn’t. I can say it smells amazing, conditioner makes my hair nice and soft (honestly a lot of conditioners do that too) the shampoo was fine. I have thin blonde hair and am currently using the Aesop calming shampoo which I love. I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy these I feel like I need a bigger sample to fully test it out but hey it was not as bad as a lot of online reviews say it was 4/5 not my absolute favorite but I won’t trash talk it, and guys get a sample and try it out. If you can’t then buy it from Sephora and return it within a month! Win win Okay guys I do love the sol de Janeiro line however this shampoo and conditioner contains yellow 5 and yellow 6 which has been tested on rats and caused certain types of cancers, now my grandparents both had cancer one got cured one died from it so I assume I’m predisposed to it, anyways enough personal stuff I just don’t feel comfortable using this with those harmful dyes soaking into my skin or bloodstream, I was going to buy the conditioner but honestly I can’t chance it when there are other products out their without harmful dyes. Please Sol De Janeiro stop using dyes!! Conditioners don’t need them!!!

amika soulfood nourishing mask
amika soulfood nourishing mask - she’s meant to deeply condition, hydrate and restore dry hair back to its optimal state of vibrancy and health. Jojoba seed oil is there to penetrate the hair follicle and fill in cracks on the cuticle surface, strengthening hair from the inside out. Vitamin C is there to assist in hair growth, repair and the reduction of free radicals. amika the kure intense repair mask - this one, she’s more intense. She’s an intensive turnaround treatment mask that exists to repair, restore and revitalize weakened and damaged hair. Shea Butter smooths and softens with its vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, and borage oil reinforces the hair to make it shinier, softer and more manageable. ⭐️ Both of these masks are free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, mineral oil, petrochemicals and artificial colors. They’re vegetarian-friendly and cruelty free! Safe for color-treated, Brazilian-treated and keratin-treated hair. ⭐️ I’ve been loving both of these! With hair masks I prefer to get all the benefits I can and leave them on overnight, so that’s what I did with these. With soulfood, I didn’t leave any too close to my roots, and I rinsed it out of my hair thoroughly the next morning. No leave-in conditioner needed post shower! I was left with super soft and super nourished hair. With the kure, however, I had applied too much to my scalp area and I didn’t wash it out thoroughly enough the next morning, so I was left with greasy hair that only the next hair wash could save 😭 I did still feel and see the benefits of the repairing mask when it came to my previously sad and split ends, and I will remember that the next time I use this very thick mask that it needs a more thorough rinse out 😅 As always, these were such a pleasure to use.

I received this product in my winter fabfitfun box! I was skeptical at first to try a deep conditioning mask because I have naturally oily hair. I try to stay away from anything that may make my hair more oily or leave a weird residue. The first time I tried this hair mask it felt amazing going on and smelled great too. It was very smooth and silky. After drying my hair, it didn’t feel oily at all. My hair felt smoother and more shiny than it has in a very long time. This product is definitely worth trying!Briogeo - Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Hair Cap System

Amazing shampoo for thinning or damaged hair
Amazing shampoo for thinning or damaged hair
#betternotyoungergiftedme their shampoo and conditioner. I’d like to share my thoughts. First off, they address haircare issues for women seeing signs of aging in their hair-whether it’s dryness, damage, or thinning. I am using “Wake Up Call” volumizing shampoo and it’s perfect for my fine, thin hair. This is seriously one of the best shampoos I’ve ever used. My hair is shiny and my curls are frizz free!! It’s safe for color or chemically treated hair. Plus it’s vegan, sulfate-free, paraben-free, and cruelty-free. They also sent me the “Wake Up Call” conditioner. It smells great and is smoothing without that heavy, greasy feel. Full transparency the conditioner has silicones so if you don’t use them, just get the shampoo. Use my promo code GINGER15- good for 15% off any product. https://better-notyounger.com/?rfsn=3863463.aa881c @betternotyounger #waybetterhair #betternotyounger #octolyfamily #pinkwednesday
