My relaxed hair suffered a little towards the end of last summer thanks to me going a little insane with my flat iron and curling iron. I needed to fix my hair stat and get back to silky, shiny status. After all, I had been working way too hard and for way too long to achieve healthy hair during this hair journey of mine.
We all know that dry hair sucks…that’s why the drugstores are stocked full of deep conditioners, hair serums
When choosing hydrating hair products look for these three things:
- Shampoos that are on the thicker side and preferably creamy and opaque (a sign that they are loaded with moisturizers);
- Thick conditioners that promise to detangle hair easily; and
- Shampoos and conditioners for your hair type. Is your hair coarse? Thin? Curly, etc.
I have been babying my own hair lately to amazing results. For the past few weeks, I have been using the Klorane Mango Butter line to soften and condition my thick, coarse hair. During the winter months, I really up my hair’s hydration to ensure that it stays moisturized, as relaxed hair is already prone to dryness.
I tried out the Klorane Nourishing Mango Butter Line and here are my initial thoughts:
First off, let me tell you that this entire line is free of silicones, parabens
Shampoos that cleanse without stripping my hair are golden in my book. This shampoo is super rich, lathered well considering it’s free of SLS, and smells heavenly…I’m talking “tropical mango smoothie” good.
It left my hair soft and silky, and ready for conditioning.
Going heat-free (no heat styling tools) of using heat tools sparingly is crucial for hair health. I promised myself to really cut back on the flat iron to give my hair a break.
With me living in the gym a lot, I used this conditioner to co-wash my hair after a good sweat session. Co-washing is essentially washing your hair with conditioner. This is not a good substitute for washing your hair with shampoo, but if your hair is dried out, it works really well for hydration until your next full wash day.
This conditioner is a
My hair was left looking shiny and healthy, and best of all, very soft and silky.
When I deep condition my hair, I coat it completely in
I did exactly this with the Nourishing Mask and air-dried my hair and styled as per usual. The result? Uber soft, shiny, voluminous hair that made me twirl in the middle of my bathroom. Bye, Sahara-like hair!!
If you have fine hair, I would skip this product as it could weigh down your hair. Fine-haired peeps who really want to try this can try applying to their ends only to avoid limp locks.
On the days where I wash-and-go, I use the Nourishing Leave-In Cream. I wash and condition, comb out my hair with a wide-tooth comb, apply one of my fave hair oils, and then a healthy dollop of this cream.
This cream’s purpose is to further boost your hair’s moisture without weighing it down. I find after using this cream and letting my hair air-dry, it’s left feeling very soft and manageable. It’s particularly great for healing dry ends.
Used in conjunction with the other three products and you are on your hair to Amazing Hair Country.
If your hair needs some help, arm your self with Klorane’s Mango Butter line and kiss dry-as-hell hair goodbye.
