I’ve currently been obsessed with Lana Del Rey’s fresh faced look. She always looks super glamorous. It amazes me that she’s not that passionate about fashion. I suppose all of her soul goes into her musical creativity. As you can see I’m a little Lanasessed and I especially covet her hair. I did a little online digging as to what her beauty regimen is. Turns out she uses Shu Uemura shampoo. I don’t know about you but there is no way I’m paying $55.00 each for a shampoo and conditioner. I tried to budget and figure out what I could get rid of in order to buy these extremely expensive shampoos but alas it did not work out. Maybe one day. It seems face oils and cleansing oils have become all the rage. I’ve skimmed through countless magazine articles on the benefits of argan and moroccan oil. I just couldn’t fathom oil being used to counter attack oil. I was a little put down when the only cleansing oil that would come up in my Google search was Shu Uemura. Then I learned that Apple Cider Vinegar helped remove buildup in your hair as well as preserve your dye job. I started using it once a week until the other day when I was blessed with Ouidad’s Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil in my Sample Society Box (which I have since cancelled to make room for other beauty expenses).
Don’t be put off by the fact that it says “Curl Recovery”. It can be used for straight hair too. I can’t really explain my hair but I would say it’s somewhat wavy. It’s wavy when it’s wet, straight when it’s dry, and wavy when it’s oily. It can’t seem to make up it’s mind. Anyway, I tried this product the second I pulled it out of the box. I was glad that it would basically perform the way the Apple Cidar Vinegar had but even better. I proceeded to shampoo and condition as usual and then applied it last. It lathers rather easily and has a very distinct yet delightful smell. I have to say I quite enjoy applying it to my hair and making it foam. I believe it does a terrific job removing buildup and repairing damaged hair. I’ve dyed my hair so many colors it was starting to look like straw. It was also due to the fact that I hadn’t had a descent haircut in two years (which changed just recently). My hair has never looked healthier or shinier. I definitely recommend you add this product to your hair arsenal. Since I have this product, I don’t use any other on my hair. It stands on its own. Now, I’m still trying to decide if it’s considered a conditioner or shampoo so that it why I save it for last.
Sulfate free shampoos, conditioner’s and hair products will help anyone with damaged hair gain healthy, shiny locks. I believe a lot of the dullness and damage my hair endured was due to the chemical filled shampoos and conditioners I was using previously. Ever since I have switched to organic/sulfate free, my hair has forever changed. So, if you are looking to experiment with cleansing oils and do not have the budget to spend over $100 on Shu Uemura or = want to deal with the smell of vinegar, this product is right for you. Again, don’t be off put by “Curl Recovery”. It may have originally been for curly hair but it works wonders for straight/wavy as well.
