I’ve recently changed back to my natural hair colour after dying my hair blonde for the past 2 years.
As much as I loved being blonde, I couldn’t handle my hair anymore. I had to retouch my roots every 3-4 weeks, my hair became brittle and drier until I started experiencing thinner hair and breakage. The quickest solution for me was to go back to my natural hair colour and give my hair a break from all the chemicals and heating.
That’s how my journey to healthier hair started. I spent hours researching and reading reviews on miracle hair products that would bring back my shiny hair.
I started with MorrocanOil Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner but it wasn’t what I needed. Using the shampoo would leave my hair very dry, straw like that I had to use double the amount of conditioner to make it more manageable. After conditioning it was definitely softer and easier to style but it wasn’t what my hair needed.
At the same time, I purchased the MorrocanOil Restorative Hair Mask who supposedly in 7 minutes will reconstruct and infuse protein back into strands that have been damaged by chemical treatments or heat styling. I found that to be somewhat false, as I did not experience my hair to be “reconstructed” whatsoever. I did find it hydrating and left my hair soft and easy to manage but I would not repurchase.
On the other hand, the MorrocanOil Treatment is a beautiful oil that I repurchased over the years and yet not found a hair oil that good to substitute this one. I use it in many different ways, when colouring my hair, before and after styling and you can use this as a mask before washing your hair! It is truly amazing and you only need a teeny tiny amount as a little bit goes a long way.
Next on my list was Kerastase Resistance Therapiste Masque, which is a butter-textured mask that deeply penetrates the hair to restore strength and boost elasticity. I found this mask to be good for when my hair was at its worst. You just need to play around with the amount as I found it to be a bit tricky; the first time I used it I applied way too much and my roots were flat and my hair was left very greasy feeling. The smell is amazing and also I didn’t need to use my leave-in products when I used this. I don’t use it anymore as my hair is in a better condition but I do recommend it to my friends and family who struggled with damaged hair as well.
Around 2 months ago, I came across the brand Living Proof, they claimed their Restore System is proven to make your hair 20x stronger in just 2 weeks! I thought that’s just crazy but still decided to try it out for myself!
I immediately went to my local SPACE NK Apothecary and purchased the Restore Shampoo and Conditioner, Restore Repair Leave-in and the mini Restore Mask Treatment.
Upon first use I did notice how different the Restore Shampoo felt in my hair, how soft and manageable it was without a conditioner!
Before styling, I apply a small amount of Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment and I love how smooth my hair is after blow-drying.
Once a week I apply the Restore Mask Treatment, leaving it on my hair for around 30 min. The results are fantastic! This is the first mask I came across that actually delivers what it claims to do! There are no silicones, parabens or any other bad ingredients that harm your hair on the long run. It is also colour safe!
I hope you guys enjoyed my post and if you have any recommendations that I should try, please leave me a comment down below!
