Hair Treatments for Healthy Hair

Hello Gorgeous!

A while ago, I blogged about my favorite hair care products (CLICK HERE) and while I do still love and use every product I listed, I have a few new favorite hair treatments I want to share with you.

It is very important to deep condition your hair at least once a week to keep it healthy, and one of my favorite hair masks for deep conditioning is the Monoi Repairing Hair Mask by Carol’s Daughter. I use this mask at least once a week and it works wonders on my long fine hair, keeping it shiny, soft, and healthy. It never weighs my hair down either! It is truly a great hair mask and I highly recommend it.

Monoi Repairing Hair Mask by Carol’s Daughter

Claims:

Carol’s Daughter claims this hair mask is a deeply nourishing hair treatment to undo and prevent damage by up to 96%. And that strengthening your hair is the only way to lengthen it so you can do whatever you want with it. That’s why the strand-strengthening Monoi Oil – an ancient recipe made from the rejuvenating Tahitian Tiare Gardenia Flower and Coprah Coconut Oil – is a must-have to help repair fine, delicate, or chemically-treated hair.

Their research results show:
– 96% less breakage after only 1 use
– 13 times longer hair life after only 1 use
– 85% better conditioning and detangling after only 1 use

Directions:

Massage gently into clean, wet hair, giving a little extra love to your frazzled ends. Leave the treatment mask on for 5 to 7 minutes and then rinse well. Or, for an even deeper treatment, put on a plastic cap and sit under a dryer for 10 to 15 minutes.

Price:

$32

 Where to purchase:

Sephora, Ulta, and Macy’s

After I wash my hair, I always use leave in products, usually leave in conditioners and/or argan oil. My absolute favorite leave in conditioner is Milk_Shake Conditioning Whipped Cream (a conditioning mousse). If I could only splurge on one hair product, this would be it! I always use a normal conditioner after I shampoo my hair and then just add this treatment after I towel dry my hair. I have tried so many different products and nothing else comes close to this treatment. It is a miracle in a bottle and it smells delicious! It does not weigh hair down, make it greasy or build up over time. It is simply perfect. Unfortunately, you can’t get it in the United States at Salons, but you can order it online from many online sites.

Claims:

For hair that is soft, shiny and full of vitality, Milkshake introduce the perfect natural conditioner for all hair types with no need to rinse, for healthy and beautiful hair.

Price:

$16+

Where to purchase:

Because I can’t pick up Milk_Shake Conditioning Whipped Cream anywhere, there is another product I like to use when I am all out. It is called Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner by Sexy Hair. This can be purchased at Ulta for $16.95 and it lasts a long time. It really conditions and detangles my hair.

A conditioner that is both a nourishing moisturizer and mild protein reconstructor and safe to use on color-treated hair.

Sample Size Me: Beauty Sampling Programs

There is just something about a surprise that’s so intriguing. The thrill of getting something unexpected is one of life’s little pleasures. And that’s exactly why I was excited to learn about beauty sampling programs.

What is a beauty sampling program? It’s a beauty program that delivers 5-6 deluxe sized samples (sometimes even full-size products) of high-end beauty brands in different varieties of makeup, hair care, skin care, fragrance and nail products right to your door each month. Beauty sampling companies work with leading beauty brands to provide a monthly box of deluxe samples to those who become members, all for a fraction of what it would cost to buy in a beauty store such as Sephora or Ulta. There is an online profile to complete which helps to best match products to your personal beauty requirements.

Sounds amazing, right? Well, there is a catch…there is a small fee to start sampling. Generally this fee ranges from $10-$21 a month, but the samples you receive are usually worth much, much more.

A few popular beauty sampling programs I researched online:
Birchbox
Glossybox
Beauty Army
Total Beauty Collection
Sample Society With Allure
IPSY
Beauty Box 5

You’re probably wondering which beauty sampling company I decided to try. Well, I signed myself up for a three-month beauty trial to the program I liked the most which is Glossybox. Glossybox was the most expensive program I researched ($21 per month), but personally I found their high-end beauty brands the best and I couldn’t resist the cute pink and black box the products will arrive in along with a special card. Unfortunately my beauty box will not arrive until the end of April (about 3-weeks). But I am sure this surprise will be worth my wait!

I also plan on signing up for Birchbox after my three-month trial with Glossybox. Birchbox actually has a waiting period to try their beauty sample boxes and I am currently on a waiting list.

As soon as I receive my beauty box, I will write a full review on my beauty blog. I am one excited girl…can’t wait for my surprise beauty box to arrive!

Have you tried a beauty sampling program?

The Best Hair Care Products For Gorgeous Hair

Hello Gorgeous!

I have tried almost every hair care product out there, from super expensive to really cheap. Having long dark hair myself, I always want to keep my locks shiny and healthy. I don’t have damaged hair, but I do have really dry and somewhat fine hair and sometimes finding the right products can be difficult. There are excellent inexpensive hair products out there, so don’t think you must buy salon brands to keep your hair looking and feeling amazing. And once you find a product that works wonders on your hair, you should keep using it, but there is nothing wrong experimenting to find something even better! And remember, keeping hair healthy starts from the inside out so sometimes it’s not a product that you need, but vitamins, nutrients, and lots of water.

My absolute favorite hair care line that I recommend to everyone is Milk_Shake hair products. I got introduced to this amazing product by my gorgeous mother-in-law two years ago and have been hooked ever since. Their products aren’t cheap, but this is by far the best line of products I have ever tried. I use their hair products everyday and they never build up in my hair over time and it doesn’t weigh hair down at all. Their products are suitable for color treated hair, damaged hair, healthy hair, fine hair, thick hair and even curly hair (all hair types). I cannot say enough great things about Milk_Shake hair products and my hair has never been healthier.

Milk_Shake is a range of professional salon hair care products, inspired by nature. The milk_shake philosophy is simple: Use the power and beauty of nature to achieve gorgeous hair for all occasions! This complete hair care range is formulated with a combination of professional ingredients which are kind to your hair and skin, while giving amazing results.

The Milk_Shake products I use daily and cannot live without are: Milk_Shake Color Maintainer Shampoo, Milk_Shake Color Maintainer Conditioner, Milk_Shake Conditioning Whipped Cream and Milk_Shake Glistening Argan Oil (this is my Holy Grail hair product; I can’t live without it).

I also use a hair mask twice a week which is the Milk_Shake Active Milk Mask.

One product that I want to try and was told is absolutely amazing is the Milk_Shake Repairing Hair Treatment. It is an intensive repair treatment for chemically treated, dry, and damaged hair. Enriched with Milk Proteins and Fruit Extracts, Repairing Hair Treatment nourishes chemically treated hair which is showing signs of damage and environmental stress. Milk_Shake’s Integrity 41 Complex helps to seal in color and increase shine and softness from the first application.

If you want to try a great line of professional hair care products, I highly recommend trying Milk_Shake. Their products are not really that expensive and they do work wonders on your hair. Plus, all their products smell amazing…bonus!

If you live in the United States, you can only order Milk_Shake products online. I order mine from Amazon.com and BeautyBay.com and you can too. If you live in Europe, Milk_Shake is sold only in the finest salons or you can also order their products online.

So go on and treat yourself to the perfect Milk_Shake treatment for your hair, working from the inside outwards creating thicker, stronger, healthier and shinier hair… Enjoy!
