TONI&GUY Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner for Damaged Hair

eraseSome of the greatest beauty companies are across the pond. TONY&GUY was established by two brothers who founded their own salon in 1963. Their salons are now franchised and you can buy their hair products. We tried their Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner for Damaged Hair. These products are supposed to penetrate the hair shaft to revitalize damaged hair. With consistent use we noticed last hair breakage. However, if your hair is very dry you may want something more emollient. Since dry and damaged are hair issues that go hand in hand, we would have liked to see more moisture. If you’re not into heavily fragranced products, you’ll appreciate the subtle scent of the shampoo and conditioner.

Tip: Is your hair really damaged? The best thing to do is to trim damaged strands. But if you’re not willing to cut, try giving your hair a heat break and only using hot tools a couple times a week. Braids, pony tails, ballerina buns, sponge rollers…the possibilities are endless for heat free styles!

John Frieda Colour Refreshing Gloss

Dyeing your hair can be scary, especially if you’re not great at doing your own hair. But there’s a step in between -hair gloss. We tried John Frieda’s Colour Refreshing Gloss in for Cool Reds, which is a weekly treatment that you can use to refresh your color in between coloring. You won’t get drastic results, this is more about maintaining the color you have. We were thankful that the whole glossing process can be done while showering, no destroying your bathroom! You shampoo and then put the gloss on before conditioning. After using it we got a moderate boost in hair color, but nothing hugely noticeable. Don’t be scared of the vibrant color, it won’t show up on your hair that way at all. It’s like a dark lip balm, it never goes on as pigmented as it looks. Another benefit of using a gloss is that like dye, it coats your hair, which is great for protecting your hair from damage. If you want noticeable but temporary results, we suggest using a rinse, which is a bit stronger than a gloss.

Tip: Squeeze as much excess water as possible before applying the gloss. Remember, the more water that’s on your hair – the more you’re diluting the product.

erase2Hair color isn’t good for your hair, but most of us still do it anyway! Fekkai has a line of products, Technician Color Care, that helps you keep your hair color fresh as long as possible. A unique add is that the products provide UV protection. UV rays fade your hair color, and just as the sun is damaging to your skin it also works against healthy hair. We tried the shampoo, conditioner, and luxe color masque. Even if you don’t color your hair, if your hair is dry you’ll like this line. Since colored hair tends to be dry, the Technician Color Care products seem to have extra moisturizers and are not stripping at all. And for when you really abuse your hair, the luxe color masque gives an intense conditioning. So why not use the luxe color masque? It’s a very intense conditioner, so if you have fine hair it may weigh down your hair too much for frequent use. In general, we thought these products were very gentle and nourishing for color-treated hair. But they can’t stop fading completely. If you want to keep your hair looking salon fresh every week, we suggest supplementing products like Fekkai Technician Color Care with color rinses or glosses.

Neutrogena Deep Moisture Night Cream

erase4There aren’t many intense nighttime moisturizers that claim to relieve extreme dryness without a greasy feel. We tried Neutrogena’s Deep Moisture Night Cream, and considering the light texture, it didn’t seem like it would be enough for our tester with dry skin. On the box, it says that Deep Moisture Night Cream is clinically proven to dramatically increase skin’s moisture level in just 1 week. If you have very dry skin, this will be a unique experience for you. It’s a lighter moisturizer, but it’s just as powerful at combating dryness as a heavy cream. The more you use it, the more you’ll feel like you don’t need it. However, the first couple of days are not that impressive at all. This product really gets to work after several days of use. No more flaking and plumper skin. So in sum, if you need an immediate quick fix this product isn’t the best choice. But if you’re willing to wait a week or longer, you’ll see an amazing improvement in your skin. To see more of our posts about Neutrogena, click here.
