Kenra Professional New Launches

K3

When it comes to my hair, I will go out on a limb to make sure it looks perfect. With so many damages of heat from straightening, curling, and the sun itself, trying to reverse the “heat curse” is a must, and the new Kenra professionals collection does just that.

Kenra Professional’s release of their Snail anti aging collection, is a 5 piece collection that is made to reverse dry; limp hair, and turn back time, you know that time, when your hair was full, youthful, and easy to manage, this collection may become your holy grail, I can definitely say the products are completely worth it.

I’m here to give the scoop to all my beauties!

KENRA SNAIL COLLECTION

The Kenra Platinum Snail collection is an anti aging made to reverse time, on damaged hair, and give its youth back. I know that snail extract is great for the skin, but for your hair? The 3 piece shampoo, conditioner, & cc creme  is made to fight the 10 signs of aging: Dullness, Thinning, Dryness, Frizz, Breakage, Elasticity, Porosity, Scalp Irritation, unmanageability, and Coarse Texture, WHEWW!! that’s a lot. These products are cruelty free.

The Kenra Snail anti aging shampoo, conditioner, and the Snail CC creme, are a trio combined to give your hair the best boost of youth. My hair is very thick and absorbs oils in a blink, and yet my hair still gets limp and heavy with the slightest of cremes. Washing my hair with the shampoo and conditioner, really gets it back to it’s natural state, of being youthful. I have been trying to create a curl pattern, with all the damage, this trio was able to get rid of my brittle hair, and its now able to grow in health. Using the snail extracted CC creme, it gives my hair light moisture, without weighing it down, also NO FRIZZ!

KENRA PLATINUM HEAT BLOCK SPRAY 22

If you were to walk in my bathroom, you would see hella heat protectant sprays, from drugstore to the most luxurious, the problem is, with all the spending you would expect me to have one I can gravitate to, but its always a battle of which will work with the weather today. The Kenra Heat block spray is Enriched with Bee Propolis for unparalleled heat protection, this gives the hair protection against heat up to 450 degrees. I love having straight hair, its more manageable, and is a quick fix when I’m just waking up. I use this spray right before I press my hair, but before I press my hair, I allow the spray to absorb in my hair, and massage it for even distribution.

KENRA SHAPING SPRAY

I never like using shaping sprays, because I knew most of them contained alcohol, which is very harmful to the hair, and can give it that sticky; stiff feeling, you know what I’m talking bout’. When I saw that this professional spray was Alcohol Free, I was overjoyed, I still had my doubts though. The shaping spray allows hold and protection, without hardening and loosing that volume and texture.

Ultimate Moroccan Argan Oil | Review

2017-06-14-15-27-48

PR Samples were given for review, all opinions and photos are my own.

 

Hi Loves,

If you’re constantly changing your skin care routine raise your hand, If you have a regular routine that works well for * I bow down*

Ultimate Moroccan Argan Oil sent me some amazing products from their collection, If you’re not familiar with the brand here’s a little insight.

 The word ultimate means the best achievable or imaginable. As a manufacturer of high-performance Moroccan Argan oil beauty products, our goal is to provide our customers with the best possible hair and skin care products that deliver on their promises.

Lavish your hair and skin with the very best in hydrating beauty treatments – Ultimate Moroccan Argan Oil®

I tried the products each individually for 2 weeks and here’s my thoughts on all of it.

2017-06-14-15-31-45

The Ultimate Argan Oil Deluxe Exfoliating Soap ( IK mouthful) is meant to Tone, Exfoliate, and Brighten, ridding the skin of dead skin cells and giving the skin a natural glowing complexion. This was my favorite to test out, as soon as I got it in the mail I used it that night. This exfoliating soap is made of small exfoliating beads which you can feel soon as it hits the skin. Their are tons of exfoliating soaps that can be pretty abrasive on the skin, but this soap, in particular, is not abrasive, it almost feels like regular soap. I love using this soap on my face and body, it feels like it’s doing the work of 3 different body scrubs. After using this my skin feels smooth, and super clean, no need for the gang of cleansers, using the soap and a light moisturizer gets the job done. Since I’ve been using this soap my skin is incredibly smooth and I can definitely feel a difference in texture, as for the brightening of dark spots and skin, I don’t think I’ve used it long enough to see any improvement in that area, but that doesn’t change my opinion about the product, overall great product. It retails for $6

2017-06-14-15-32-32

I got to try 2 different sheet mask, one the Ultimate Argan Oil Brightening Mask + The Hydrating Mask. 

I love a good sheet mask, I mean you can just leave it on  your face and let it do it’s work, while you’re updating your Instagram page, or something of that nature. Both mask are infused with Argan Oil, and are free of alcohol, which is amazing. Lets start with the brightening mask, this mask is meant to restore balance in skin cells to naturally brighten the skin, as well as, hydrating the skin. I love any mask that will clear, and restore the healthy glow of my skin without stripping my face of everything that keeps it hydrated. Each mask box comes with 4 individual sheet mask, which is just enough. So far, I have used 2 of the 4 mask and really enjoy it. The product that the sheet mask comes in is what I’m drawn to, the mask is nice,but after it dries, it has left over product that you can rub into the skin, and it dries down, but not super drying. The brightening mask has to be my favorite, I can definitely see results with the uses, I really enjoyed it. The Hydrating Mask is meant to hydrate, and restore radiance in the skin, I’ve only tried the mask once, but in that one use my skin did feel hydrated and not drying at all. I will have to use this more, but the one time was great. Each mask set retails $45 which is pricey, but for 4 mask I feel like your getting your money’s worth.

2017-06-14-16-06-08

Lastly is the Argan Oil treatment serum,

I love serums, I have a ton of facial + body oils that get the job done. This serum is infused with Argan Oil, and high concentrations of fatty acids, and vitamin E. Now when I looked on the website it says its a hair oil, but I have been using this for my body and it seems to be working better than half my moisturizing collection. I love this serum, it’s super lightweight, and the smell is not overpowering. I’m half full with product, because I’ve been using it religiously since i’ve gotten it. I do love the way it works on my skin, and I can use it in my hair, so that’s just an added bonus. This serum retails for $16.

Diety America Hair care- Collection

PR samples courtesy of Diety America, all opinions are my own.

Hi Lovelies,

Hair Problems, something everyone goes through whether its heat damage, to thin, or just flat I haven’t came across a girl whos’ hair was just perfect, unless you’re Sofia Vergara.

It wasn’t until 3 months ago that I heard of Diety America, if you don’t know who they are here’s a little insight. Diety America is a hair brand that helps with healthy; natural regrowth. All of the products are based from Tibet, and Chinese herbal extracts, also carrying ginseng, wheat, protein, and Avocado. This brand couldn’t have contacted me at a better time, especially since my hair was in the process of breaking off. Through contacts they wanted me to review for them, and it didn’t take long to say yes.

What they sent were 2 leave in conditioners, Plant shampoo, a heat protectant, as well as, a serum dropper and a scalp treatment.

lrm_export_20170119_1258551

I tried this entire collection in the course of 3 months, in moderation of course.Now that I’m done rambling, let’s talk about the products.

lrm_export_20170119_1304311

The Super Gro Serum Nutmeg + Serum Gro scalp Treatment

I use these every night just to keep my scalp from being dry, because my hair soaks up moisture. The super grow w/nutmeg is very lightweight on my hair, it has a mentholated feeling when I apply it to my hair. Its made with Asian herbal extract, Chinese ginseng extract, Nutmeg Oil, Argan Oil, and Knotweed, all are ingredients made to grow healthy hair from the root, as well as, protect hair from breakage. With the nutmeg you definitely can smell it in the ingredients and feel a burning sensation as well. The Serum gro scalp treatment is similar to the super gro but without any nutmeg, or menthol. I prefer the super gro with the nutmeg, but both works just the same.

Leave in Hydrating & Repair Scalp Treatment / Deep Penetrating Conditioner

The Hydrating leave in conditioner and the Deep Conditioner were my favorite products to use weekly. The hydrating leave in conditioner is made up of Water, Soy Protein, Ginseng, Shea Butter, Asian & Tibetan herbs, and Knotweed. The hydrating conditioner I liked because it could be used as a styling product or just to condition and wash out. It really is a hydrating conditioner, it is kind of, heavy so you don’t need much. As most conditioners its meant to repair the hair and keep breakage from happening. I used this twice a week and by the end of the week wash it out, because the build up can cause your hair to feel sticky. The Deep Condition , is made of Tibetan Herbs, Aloe Vera, Ginseng, and Avocado, all ingredients that promotes healthy hair growth, and stops breakage. The deep condition acted like a hair mask, when you apply all over the hair it hardens and you leave it on for about 15 min, then wash it out. I think both of these combinations helped my hair the most, because I did use these as my holy grail products. If you’re trying to grow your hair, these are my recommended products, because these duos have a combination of hair growth ingredients, and you can use it weekly if not daily.

The Plant Shampoo

I really like using the plant shampoo, made of the same as the leave in hydrating leave in conditioner, the plant shampoo is an all organics shampoo that helps repair hair. I used the shampoo and the consistency is very thick, it smells like grass, yeah that’s how natural it is. It really did help my hair to stop breakage. I used this every 2 weeks and within the first months usage, I could see a difference. I really do like the way it lathers my hair and that its not filled with alcohol and parabens, which are both harmful to your hair.

Repairing Essence Daily Moisturizer lotion

I normally do not like lotions in my hair mainly because, lotions tends to make my hair sticky and stiff, The daily moisturizer changed my entire opinion about certain lotions. This daily moisturizer contains Amino Acids, Vitamin C5, Ironic Protein, and Collagen. This is a daily lotion, which you can use daily, but I only used it when I used the deep conditioner, to keep my hair hydrated and shiny. This lotion works really well, its not like any lotion I ever tried, its light weight, the consistency in my hair is nice, it doesn’t weigh my hair down at all.

As for the entire Diety America collection, I really liked the natural quality of the products, I have used tons of “natural” products but these products takes the cake. I think that as far as the ingredients, being free of sulfates, and parabens are always great. the shampoos’ and conditioners works well together. I highly recommend this brand to people who liiivvvee for organic and Au’ natural products.

“Life isn’t perfect, but my hair is” | Hask Hair Review

LRM_EXPORT_20161113_110541.jpg

Hi Lovelies,

Its great to be back blogging again, I have been very distracted lately, but I feel more focused and much better…Everybody makes mistakes, everybody has those days.”

Well I’m back with another review, and I am so excited to share it. I have been a Hask hair fan for a while now, I’ve tried a lot of their hair collections through pr and through me being a hair freak, but the new super fruit hair collection is the latest to hit the shelves.  When it comes to pr branding, I am very particular about what I try and am not afraid to give my opinion, so lets break down this review.

LRM_EXPORT_20161113_010234 (1).jpg

So when it comes to hair, it is very sensitive my hair in particular can not have a ton of salicylic acid and parabens. The super fruit collection is free of parabens and filled with vitamins and fatty- acids which are really great to promote healthy hair and natural growth. The collection came with a shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, and a cute hask hair brush.

LRM_EXPORT_20161113_112248 (1).jpg

lrm_export_20161113_112714

I’ve been using this entire collection for a little over 3 weeks and my hair is very healthy, the consistency of the shampoo/conditioner duo really is a light weight formula, it doesn’t weigh my hair down at all, so as far as the shampoo and condition, its a definite MUST!

lrm_export_20161113_113412

The next thing I want to talk about is the deep condition, now normally I’m not a fan of the deep condition, just because of the entire long process, but I found that it’s not really as bad. As far as, using the deep condition you only deep condition maybe twice a week. It is time consuming, but in between reading a  book, or watching your favorite movie (psk psk Lord of the Rings) it is very relaxing to my hair, and I think that its worth it at the end of the day.

Well that’s all for my review I hope you enjoyed it, be sure to “Like” if you like my product reviews, and “comment” if you have tried Hask Hair care products, if so what’s your favorite collection?

Hask Review | Kalahari Melon Oil Color Protection + Charcoal Purifying Hair Care

2016-05-09-16-24-09

Hi Lovelies,

So I was asked to review 2 of hask product collection, one was the Kalahari Melon Color Treatment and the other was the Charcoal Purifying Collection ( which I read reviews on and was super excited to try). Both collections came with a shampoo, conditioner, deep Conditioner and as a bonus 2 Hask brushes.

2016-05-09-16-26-11

Lets start with the Kalahari Melon Color Treatment Shampoo/Conditioner. I absolutely loved the combination, the Shampoo came out very thick, so I only needed a little, which goes a long way. The Shampoo is ment to replenish color, without damaging your hair, now I don’t color my hair, but even without color, my hair still ended up very soft, and had plenty of volume. I thought that the shampoo worked well with the conditioner, considering the conditioner was very light, so it was a great combo, and worked well with my hair. The smell is so good, it has natural ingredients that is meant to protect your hair. I loved it!!

2016-05-09-16-27-30

Next, the Charcoal Purifying Shampoo/Conditioner. Now, this I have heard of, I looked on Youtube and the reviews were great, so when I got the chance, I literally jumped on it. The shampoo does not turn your hair black (like I thought), it smells of citrus, it’s really light on my hair, and if you want a thorough wash, this would be the perfect product. The conditioner was a great detangler. The combination of shampoo/conditoner was great, it lathers well, my hair remains strong as well as, soft with a ton of volume.

2016-05-09-16-20-37

2016-05-09-16-18-49

Between the two I have to say, I love the charcoal Purifying Collection. It was literally the best for my hair. The smell of citrus, and the lather it produces is amazing. I love this product.

2016-05-09-16-29-44

The hask Kalahari Melon oil is one of my favorites of hair oils. After blowdrying my hair using this makes life so much easier. The oil gives my hair a great texture, and creates volume while putting heat to my hair. This oil provides protection against heat, which is a plus considering I flat iron my hair every other week. ( on low, no damage, promise!!).

2016-05-09-16-33-17

The next thing is 2 deep Conditioners, one from the Kalahari Collection and the other from the Charcoal Purifying Collection. The charcoal deep conditioner works wonders, it provides a lot of moisture, and nutrients in the process of texturizing my hair. It works really well to put it in before using the actual conditioner, using this process makes your hair 10× softer. The same goes for the Kalahari deep condition, I really didn’t see a difference, except for the smells, which actually made my hair smell like a Lush bathbomb. Anyways, both of these deep conditioners worked well, they both seem to work better after shampooing and before using the actual conditioner, otherwise your hair is more likely to come out sticky, and a little stiff.

2016-05-09-16-37-56

Lastly, I got 2 hair brushes that came with each collection. My favorite one has to be the brush with the pineapple, I mean it reminds me of Summer.

Here are the links to both Hask Collection:

Well that’s my review, I hope you enjoyed it, this was literally the most fun post to try. “comment” below what’s your favorite hair products, and if you’ve tried Hask products, which is your favorite collection?
