Easy Summer Haircare: Infusium23 Repair & Renew Collection

6 Jul

Hi beauties! Do you change your haircare routine for the summer?

During the summer, I like to give my hair a break from heat styling tools (my blow dryer and flat iron can use a breather, too). Since my hair is highlighted, it can turn nasty due to humidity and high temperatures.

I recently had a chance to try out three products in the Infusium 23 Repair & Renew collection. This easy-to-use trio features keratin to fortify hair and argan oil to prevent damage.

Infusium 23 Repair & Renew Shampoo

The Repair & Renew Shampoo is designed to strengthen hair, while diminishing the damaging effects of the past. The formula contains provitamins, proteins, and amino acids to make hair more resilient and renew troubled hair.

Nourishing hair cuticles from root to tip, this shampoo minimizes future breakage by removing residue and build-up. Getting rid of product build-up just may be the reason my hair looked smooth and had a lot of body after using this shampoo.

Tip: When shampooing your hair, focus on cleansing the scalp first, rubbing in circular motions with the pads of your fingers (not the nails) and letting the motion of the water work suds down the length of your hair. Try to avoid piling your hair on the top of your head or rubbing shampoo into your ends.

Infusium 23 Repair & Renew Conditioner

After shampooing my hair, I usually apply conditioner to the ends of my hair. The Repair & Renew Conditioner is very silky so you just need a minimal amount to take advantage of the  i-23 Complex to recharge, renew, and treat dull, damaged hair (amen!).

Infusium 23 Repair & Renew Leave-in Treatment

The Repair & Renew Leave-in Treatment is designed to improve the quality of hair over time. Since I’ve previously used an Infusium 23 Leave-in Treatment for color-treated hair and liked it, I knew this would be my favorite product in the collection (and it is). This light mist, which you can use every day, also helps detangle wet or dry hair.

In Canada, you can find Infusium23 at most retailers. For summer 2017, Infusium23 is offering a special bonus size in the Repair & Renew Shampoo and Conditioners with 35% more value and $1 off any purchase until July 31, 2017; check out more here.

You may have noticed that I included a couple of hair slinkies in the photo. I’m so happy I was introduced to this hair tie (I wish I would have thought of this). They don’t dent or tangle your hair, or create breakage!

Serious Frizz Fighter: Marc Anthony Nourishing Argan Oil of Morocco

26 Nov

Marc Anthony Nourishing Oil of Morocco

Hi beauties!

Have you noticed that there are so many Argan Oil products now, it’s hard to know which one is right for your hair?

For example, I prefer using a sulfate-free shampoo to avoid using harsh chemicals and prevent my hair color from fading.

I’m also willing to splurge on haircare, but it’s a big win when an effective product doesn’t break the bank.

The Marc Anthony Nourishing Argan Oil of Morocco line covers all these angles when it comes to experiencing the benefits of this ancient super oil.

Nourishing Argan Oil of Morocco Sulfate Free Shampoo

This sulfate-free shampoo is infused with Keratin, Grape Seed Oil, and Argan Oil. It’s designed to deeply cleanse your hair of impurities, restore strength, and revive shine.

The shampoo has enough lather to work through your hair, but not strip it of moisture. It left my coarse hair feeling smooth, and easy to manage.

Parlor by Jeff Chastain

Jeff Chastain is a NYC celebrity hairstylist with over 14 years of experience.

Of course, you want to know who some of his amazing celebrity clients are. They include Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Kerry Washington, and RHONY Kristen Taekman.

If that’s not enough, other celebrity clients that you may have heard of are Sarah Jessica Parker and  Keri Russell. Ttwo of my favorite binge-watching series just happen to be Sex and the City and Felicity (Team Aidan/Team Ben!).

Clients loved Chastain’s signature practice of “product cocktailing”so much that he created PARLOR by Jeff Chastain with the help of Birchbox.

If you’ve been thinking that hair products are getting too complicated, you may want to check out this haircare line. You don’t need a chemistry degree to figure out how to use PARLOR by Jeff Chastain because the line features easy-to-use formulas.

Since the products are designed to work together, they all have the same unisex fragrance: ripe peach, fresh-cut grass, and white woods. For example, if you apply the Moisturizing Sea Salt Spray after shampooing and conditioning to get beachy waves, you won’t smell like a department store fragrance counter.
