It’s Hair Week on The Best Beauty Blog and today I’m going to tell you about the hair products I have been using lately.  But before I do that, let me tell you a bit about my hair…  I like to put my hair through chemical hell as I had my hair permanently straightened in January and I had it coloured with red tips a few months ago.  I wash and blowdry my hair every night and it’s a habit I cannot break.  I thought my hair would be completely damaged but surprisingly, the hairstylist I saw recently and mentioned yesterday, said I had strong and healthy hair and it’s probably because I am using some awesome hair products.  Allow me to introduce you to them…

1.  Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Collection

The collection comprises of Shampoo, Conditioner, Renewing Treatment and Penetrating Oil, which features fair trade argan oil, which nourishes and strengthens hair and it smells FAB!  The Shampoo and Conditioner are free of sulfates, phosphates and parabens – which was great at not stripping the red from my hair and moisturised well except the hair ends which had its tangled moments.  But the ends fared better when I used the Renewing Treatment as a weekly treat for my hair.  For me, the star product of the collection has to be the Penetrating Oil – it is weightless and my hair soaks it up like a sponge.  My hair feels so much softer and looks shinier when I use this.  There is silicone in the ingredients list so I don’t use it every day but maybe 2-3 times a week.

2.  Schwarzkopf Extra Care Nutri Protect Collection

Schwarzkopf is a well-known hair brand which is known for its affordable products.  The Extra Care Nutri Protect collection here features Shampoo, Conditioner and Leave-In Conditioner and is packaged in pink – my favourite colour!  This range targets dry, stressed hair with its liquid keratin formula – which is perfect for me, my hair and I!  Smells good, washes well and detangles.  The Leave-In Conditioner tends to be neglected though as my hair is happy with simply using the Conditioner – but I foresee that I will be using it a lot more often when Summer comes.  I’ll just spritz some on my hair and chill out in the sun!

3.  muk intense muk Repair Collection

If you fancy treating your locks to extra TLC, then I would highly recommend muk.  It’s my first time trying out muk products, and I am mightily impressed with how my hair feels every time I use their Shampoo and Conditioner.  I save the Repair Treatment as a bi-monthly treat where I coat my hair with it and wrap it up in a towel and let it work wonders.  My hair looks like I’ve just stepped out of a salon!!!

4.  Pantene Aqua Light

It’s lightweight and makes hair go SWISSHY!!!  Find out more tomorrow…  *cue mystery music*

    Thanks for the post. I’m temped to try the Organix Moroccan penetrating oil. I’ve tried the shampoo and conditioner and I actually hated it. It left my hair dry and kinda crispy lol I didn’t know if anything else from the line was worth it.

      @Junella, You have to try the Penetrating Oil because it smoothes over the crispy ends 😀

    I have some of those products lying around my bathroom but not using them. Interesting to see your review.

    I want to try the penetrating oil. I permed my hair several months ago, and it’s so dried out. Maybe that could really help save it.

      @Ashlynn, Permed hair needs more nourishment, doesn’t it?

        @Ling,
        Yup, I’m trying to get that oil, but I can’t find a vendor that will ship it here. 🙁
