l-oreal-professionnel-mythic-oil-shampoo

L’Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil Hair Collection – You’ve probably already tried, or at least heard of, the original Mythic Oil for hair. I didn’t know that there was a whole line of Mythic Oil products just waiting for my hair. I tried the Shampoo, Masque and Oil Detangling Spray all with the same Mythic Oil care for my locks. I found the whole collection very soft and moisturizing on my hair. After using the collection my hair looked because and was really easy to manage.

pureology-style-care-smooth-perfection-infusion

Pureology Style & Care Smooth Perfection Infusion – Lately I haven’t had great luck with pre-blow dry frizz products. It took my a long time to dare to use this product. I love that it’s a gel and cream combo – a styler and a leave-in conditioner. I think it’s that combination that helped it work to keep my hair looking great for longer. I did find that it made me have to wash my hair sooner than usual, because it got greasy faster. But that said it was great from wash to wash.

redken-pillow-proof-blow-dry-collection

Redken Pillow Proof Blow-Dry Collection – Redken wants to help keep your blow out for a few days longer with their new Pillow Proof collection. I tried the combo of the Express Treatment Primer and the Two Day Extender Dry Shampoo. The primer was supposed to help your hair blow dry faster than usual. I’m not entirely sure that it worked, because I don’t blow dry my hair enough to know the regular amount of time. But my hair did feel and look great afterwards, so I will call that a win. The dry shampoo is your average dry shampoo. It left my hair looking good for at least two more days. It’s also nice and cool and smells good! Bonus!

pantene-pro-v-intense-repair-collection

Pantene Pro-V Intense Repair Collection – I don’t really think that my hair is damaged, but you can never protect your hair too much can you? It smells and feels like something that you would get in a salon. It’s luxurious feeling and leaves your hair very soft. I don’t know about the damage, but I definitely have less frizz and more silky hair that i don’t have to throw in a ponytail to hide. It will be perfect for protecting my hair from those sub-zero temperatures.

invisibobble-hair-ring

Invisibobble Hair Ring – These little spiral hair ties have an interesting back story. They were inspired by phone cords, back in the day when people had home phones. They are meant to give you less headaches, stop that annoying hair crimp and be simple to use. I find them a bit clunky, but they are definitely softer on my hair. They don’t feel like they are hold my hair so tight it hurts. I kept thinking that they were falling out. It’s a weird feeling to get used to, but you just have to trust the Invisibobble. It could change your ponytails forever.

Pureology Strength Cure Collection

Pureology Strength Cure
There are so many hair products out right now that use the terms rescue, damage or repair and I’ve used a lot of them without noticing any kind of difference. So I was skeptical when Pureology’s Strength Cure collection showed up. I’ve never used Pureology before and I don’t have particularly damaged hair so I didn’t have any kind of expectations. I don’t colour my hair, don’t use a lot of heat on my hair, but my frizz is unmanageable in any kind of humidity. Pureology claimed my hair would be 97% stronger after one use of the system.

The first thing I noticed was how much thicker the shampoo is compared to others. It still couldn’t be mistaken for conditioner but the texture was definitely different from what I’d been using. By the time I was done with the shampoo and conditioner I noticed a huge difference on how strong my hair felt wet.

I used the Strength Cure Fabulous Lengths on it’s own as a styling product just to see how my hair reacted in general to the line. It was pretty easy to comb through, no knots or tangles and when it dried it wasn’t crunchy and my hair ended up in pretty nice waves. It didn’t however get rid of the frizz so I’ll probably mix it with something else next time.

The only thing I didn’t like about Pureology’s Strength Cure line was the scent. It’s a weird powdery banana/coconut scent, probably meant to be somewhat tropical, but it really doesn’t work for me. If my hair is going to keep feeling stronger, I can get over the scent. It’ll be interesting to see how strong my hair can get.
