Hope that you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend with your favourite women. I know that I did… Mom and I indulged in the Mother’s Day Brunch held at the Delta Grand. Boy were we ever full! Needless to say that we enjoyed the sunshine as I am sure that everyone else did in the beautiful Okanagan valley.
On a daily basis, I am being asked “Richelle, if you had to pick one hair product that you could NOT live without, what one would you choose?”, and the truth is I can NOT pick one single product! Hence why I have decided to start a weekly blog post on my favourite product of the week. Ladies, we can all relate to this. Take a look at your bathroom – chances are it is filled with dozens of products that we love, once loved, or even tried once and hated it. I have a similar situation in my bathroom closet – a basket-full! This is why I wanted to pick and choose a product that I am totally digging once a week to help you ladies through the world of hair products, and why each product that we carry is great for someone.
Hair products are not designed to work for every single hair type. So the idea that Sally Sue down the street told you that you NEED to try this amazing curl product in your hair even though your hair is poker straight is false. I am sure that Sally Sue’s new curl product is indeed amazing, but for your hair? Not so much.
Just like our bodies, and our skin, our hair is special to us and has different needs than others. So without further a due, let us dive in to the world of hair products and how they work in different hair types.
The product that I chose for this week is a part of the Strength Cure line by Pureology, Fabulous Lengths.
This product has been my saving grace for the last little while through the season transition from winter to spring. I love my light blonde hair, and I also love having long hair. Therefore, the longer my hair gets, by nature, the more fragile it will be. Light blonde hair is always going to be more fragile than most brunettes and red heads. It naturally absorbs more light which means that UV damage is more prone. So in the summer, I’m the girl that hardly washes my hair, does deep conditioning treatments often, and loads in the anti-breakage and shine product like you wouldn’t believe. The result? My hair is a freaking machine. Especially using this product in the last month, I’ve noticed fewer split ends in my hair and it can handle anything.
How it works: In wet hair, I put two pumps into my hands and work it through my ends to mid-shaft. My hair is long, so if you have shorter hair you definitely do not need any more than one pump. This product is so concentrated. A lot of times we like to think “oh the more I put in the better my hair will be”, which is not true. Think of your hair follicle as a cup of water. If you put too much water in the cup, it will overflow. So if you put too much product in your hair, it will also overflow and it will never dry… Not the feeling we want. So with this product, for me, I use two pumps and blow-dry and style my hair normally. My hair not only feels amazing but it emits this super fresh scent all day.
Something to keep in mind for ladies who have breakage-prone hair and it doesn’t like to grow, sometimes (not always) it has to do with diet. Make sure your body is getting enough nutrients, just like your hair.
Hope everyone has a marvellous monday!
