#FightTheFade with Kenra // Influenster Voxbox

The hardest part about having color treated hair, is maintaining its tone and vibrancy. Getting your hair done professionally really puts a dent in your wallet, so why not try to make you hard earned cash last a bit longer. I received the Kenra Platinum Color Charge Shampoo and Conditioner Duo from 

Influenster

, and I’m so excited to share my experience with you all.

This system recharges your hair color’s brilliance and vibrancy for up to 50 washes! For those who skip a few days when washing out your hair, this will last you a long time! I usually just shampoo my roots to get rid of oil and impurities. This product works by keeping color pigments locked in your hair cuticles, instead of washing out and fading.  The shampoo and conditioner contain no parabens, no sulfates, and no sodium chloride, so there are no harsh ingredients that will damage you treated hair.

The products smell amazing and it lathers so luxuriously, so it feels like you’re getting salon treatment while you’re in the comfort of your own home. After blowdrying my hair, it stayed shiny and soft. I love that it doesn’t dry out my hair. I tone my blonde highlights in my balayage with purple dye/shampoo so keeping that tone in quite difficult to do. Once it fades, my hair turns a brassy orange which looks super unnatural and unfinished. This shampoo and conditioner duo helps me retain my desired color, thanks Influenster for the complimentary product to test!

#ExtraordinaryClay // Influenster Voxbox Review



So excited to share L’Oreal’s new Extraordinary Clay Hair System products with you guys! This Voxbox was perfect for me since I have combination hair, oily roots and dry ends. Dry shampoo is my holy grail product, but I do like changing up my hair routine. This unique system by L’Oreal has three refined clays to purify and remove oil from your scalp and hair. Lately, clay masks for the face have been one of the biggest beauty trends, but what happens when we apply it to our scalp to get rid of oil. Treat yourself to a mini spa session and give your hair some TLC. Give yourself a head massage while applying the mask and then wash it all away with warm water.



· Clay Mask – Pre Shampoo Treatment: This works just like a face mask, you apply the clay to your roots, leave it for 5 minutes, and wait for it to work its magic. It’s absorbing impurities and oil that make your scalp dirty.  After it dries, you can wash it out with warm water and then you can wash your hair with Rebalancing Shampoo. It does take a bit of time to apply, especially those who have thick, long hair. I had to section off my hair so I can get every spot on my head. The paste is not that thick so it’s easy to spread on your roots.

· Rebalancing Shampoo – After using the mask treatment, I massaged the shampoo into my hair from root to tip. It has a very fresh rejuvenating scent. This shampoo lathers so luxuriously and once it rinses out my hair doesn’t feel stripped of moisture.

· Rebalancing Conditioner – The conditioner smells very similar, and it has a creamy consistency. It applies very smoothly, I let it soak in for about 5 minutes.




After drying my hair, and using only heat protectant spray, my hair felt so soft and moisturized, it had a natural shine and my tips did not feel brittle. I’m so happy I got to try this set out!

Keretase Nutritive Duo // #KerastaseTransforms Voxbox




It’s dry season, make sure you pamper your hair with moisture rich products especially if you use heat styling and color treat you hair. My hair is bleached, thick, and a little wavy, as you can tell it’s a little hard to manage. I was so excited to try out the Kerastase Nutritive duo and see how well it worked on my hair! I was super impressed on how soft my hair felt after using it. I only recommend using this if you have dry hair.


Kerastase Nutritive BAIN SATIN 2 – Shampoo For a gentle clean packed with moisture and nutrients, try this shampoo out. The lather is rich and it has a nice fresh professional scent. My hair feels moisturized just after using the shampoo, I hate when some products strip the moisture out after rinsing. It will make your hair shiny and manageable, especially for those who love heat styling.

KEY TECHNOLOGY

Kerastase Nutritive Masquintense Fine
I used this product after I used the shampoo. This product is also filled with nutrients for dull and dry hair. It intensely penetrates hair strands so I recommend adding more product to your ends. This felt like a deep conditioner treatment for me since you have to leave the product one for 5-10 minutes. After rinsing out and air drying my hair, I’m able to style my hair with a blow-dryer effortlessly. I love the way my hair feels after!

L'oreal Extraordinary Oil // Review









I'm always trying to downsize my hair products so that my bathroom stays clean and less cluttered, but it's hard to find the right combination of oils and serums that work on my stubborn hair. If you're like me you have hard to maintain hair (damaged, thick, dry and dull). Once you find a miracle product that magically brings life back into your hair, you better share your results with the world. Luckily I was able to try out L'oreal Paris' new Extraordinary Oil Trio, thanks to Crowdtap. I was so excited to test them since I haven't really been treating my hair with a good shampoo and conditioner. Each product is created with an oil complex made of coconut, argan, chamomile, amla, soja, and sunflower. All of these ingredients have amazing benefits for deep nourishment for dull and lifeless hair.

Advanced Haircare - Extraordinary Oil Shampoo // When I popped open the cap, its scent reminded me of a salon product! It lathered so luxuriously, and rinsed off without stripping moisture from my locks.

Advanced Haircare - Extraordinary Oil Conditioner // After shampooing, I massaged the conditioner starting from the ends and worked up to my roots. I let the product sit in my hair for a few minutes before rinsing, so that it could soak in. My hair felt so velvety smooth while rinsing the product out.

Advanced Haircare - Extraordinary Oil Lustrous Oil Serum // After washing and conditioning, I let my hair air dry to get rid of excess moisture. I massaged the oil into my hair, avoiding the roots, and then I blow dried. I wanted to see if this would work great as a heat protector and a styler. I usually blowdry my hair straight and this leaves my hair dry and not smooth. The oil created a nice shine on my hair and it actually looked super healthy!






Here is my before and after, you can definitely see the shine. I highly recommend these products if your hair needs some reviving. For the quality, it's so worth the price, no need to splurge on high end products anymore! Let me know in the comments if you tried this product out, and if it changed your hair routine. Love it!

Hairburst | 1 Month Review



We all have a love / hate relationship with our hair. My hair always had to be perfect. I used to straighten, blow dry, bleach. I didn't realize how much I was damaging my hair. I’ve tried numerous products, shampoos conditioners, oils, blow dry creams, not knowing that these chemical filled products are actually pretty bad for my hair. Before I started my Hairburst journey, I decided to cut a few inches off for a fresh start. Of course it took me forever to actually push myself to go, I don’t really trust anyone with my hair! Since my hair grows slowly, I always fear that they’ll cut off too much or just mess up my style. With a new trim, it was finally time to start the Hairburst process.


So what is Hairburst?


Hairburst is a UK based brand that sells a supplement that promotes healthy hair growth. Every bottle contains 60 white (large) capsules, enough supply for one month. Directions say to take two daily. I like to take them in the morning, right when I wake up and before I brush my teeth. They have a slight smell, but if you swallow them and chug water right away you’ll forget about.


Hairburst claims to nourish hair from within. Which is so true when you think about hair growth. It helps with less breakage, strength and overall health which leads to longer hair. People recommend taking Biotin for hair growth, but that made me break out, so I'm happy that I found a supplement that didn’t give me noticeable pimples!! I highly recommend this product if you want the full effect.


This is my review for only 1 month of using Hairburst, if you want optimal results their website suggests that you use them for a longer period of time.




My Results



Yes I already have long hair, but it’s a struggle to grow out since the ends just break off. I’ve stopped straightening and only blow dry when i absolutely need to so that my hair can grow out healthier. By doing this while taking Hairburst supplements I noticed less fall out hairs, less breakage, less split ends. My hair is shinier and less frizzy when I airdry. After one month I did notice that my hair grew a little bit longer! I was so happy with the results, usually my hair takes FOREVER. Combining the pills with minimal heat and product use, I can definitely feel and see the difference.
