With the recent news of Shea Moisture’s controversial ad, many of the brand’s customers have ditched their products for new options for their hair. I personally stopped using them prior to their campaign because it no longer worked for my daughter or my hair texture. In my quest to try something new, I wanted to share 2 brands for your hair as my #SelfCareSaturday review.
In my past posts, I have shared why weekends are my time for self-care. As a mom and wife, its something of a balancing act to make sure I take care of me while taking care of the household. Saturdays are the perfect moment to put on a fave facial mask, do my nails, meditate, and treat my hair and scalp to some additional care.
Recently I learned of 2 amazing brands for hair care: ColorProof a vegan line of styling and care products, and Macadamia Professional, a professional line of styling and care products that are infused with a Pro Oil Complex, a unique blend of Macadamia and Argan Oils. Here are the deets:
Macadamia Professional Ultra Moisture Shampoo + Conditioner ($22.00/each; Ulta/Ulta.com): Ideal for coarser hair textures, the Ultra Rich Moisture Shampoo provides intense hydration to the hair and scalp. It contains the exclusive Pro Oil Complex of Macadamia and Argan Oils to help strengthen and repair, while richer Mongongo Oil provides superior hydration, frizz control and helps to support the natural curl pattern and/or texture of the hair.
Ultra-Rich Moisture Conditioner is a luxe formula ideal for coarser to coiled hair textures. It contains the exclusive Pro Oil Complex of Macadamia and Argan Oils to help strengthen and repair, while richer Mongongo Oil provides superior hydration, frizz control and helps to support the natural curl pattern and/or texture of the hair. Silk Amino Acids plus a blend of Vitamins A, C and E strengthen and improve elasticity.
Macadamia Professional Ultra Riche Moisture Masque ($36.00; Ulta/Ulta.com): Infuse coarse or coiled textured hair with an instant moisture boost. This hair masque provides nourishment to dry, damaged hair and strengthens the individual hair strands to help repair and defend against future damage. Hydration is locked in and hair is left healthy, shiny and restored.
*I wanted to show you the consistency of the hair masque. It has a nice feel and smell to it. And like the label says, my hair felt “Ultra Rich” after using it along with the shampoo and conditioner.
ColorProof PureRelease® Instant Detangle ($27, ColorProof.com): Instantly detangle, repair, nourish and reduce breakage like never before possible. This high performance, 100% vegan, leave-in spray keeps hair manageable and tangle-free while breakthrough technology extends the life of your color and protects hair from heat damage. It’s like wearing a sunhat for your hair.
Superplump® Blow Dry Thickening Spray ($28, ColorProof.com) : Vamp up fine hair with this heat-activated, miracle body builder that weightlessly plumps each strand to expand volume and density while smoothing for touchably soft, noticeably thicker hair with maximum color and heat protection. Thicker. Fuller. Stronger.
- Hydrolyzed Corn Starch grips to hair fibers to plump each strand while expanding volume and density
- Hydrolyzed Jojoba and Pea Proteins strengthen and heal from within while smoothing and protecting against breakage
- AquaFlex™ Polymer thickens and adds volume with long-lasting soft hold and style memory
- Proprietary FlexShield Technology shrink wraps hair for ultimate protection against heat damage up to 450°
- Advanced ColorLast System™ provides unsurpassed color and heat protection
*I am most impressed that this product is 100 percent vegan. I am currently not putting any heat on my hair but my neighbor who is currently wearing a blow out style said she is excited to try these and impressed with the ingredients.
