Just after a visit to my hair stylist, I am always amazed at how soft and healthy looking my hair is. Becca somehow works her magic, and it’s like all the years of coloring and heat damage have melted away; I have virgin hair again. I went to her a few months ago with severe dry hair and scalp and she recommended a couple products that have seriously helped. I wanted to share these with you!
Shampoo: Rene Furterer Karite Shampoo ($25) somehow manages to cleanse and moisturize hair at the same time, leaving it soft and totally manageable. I love the scent, and the shampoo lathers well without using a lot of product. Using plant extracts and essential oils, Rene Furterer products won’t make hair dull or dry it out. The best part for me was that after using this shampoo (and the treatment mask below) dry scalp was no longer an issue.
Conditioning Mask: Rene Furterer Karite Intense Nourishing Mask ($46) Applied to wet hair after shampooing, this miracle cream leaves hair soft and shiny – not a split end in sight. Made with a trio of repairing ingredients (Shea butter, Phospholipids and Cimentrio), Karite coats hair and helps to keep it healthy. Formulated with “Ethical Shea butter”, meaning it is produced “pure, solvent-free and additive-free with 100% traceability”. The end result is amazingly supple, healthier hair. Oh and not to mention it smells wonderful too. I have also noticed my husband loves it!
Since I’ve been using the above combo from Rene Furterer, I’ve been really happy with my hair texture and manageability. However, I won’t give up my beloved appointments with my stylist. Speaking of that – her salon just went through a rebrand, and the new site and branding materials look amazing. If you are in Seattle, I highly recommend making an appointment at Robert Leonard Salon & Day Spa. All of their designers and colorists are highly talented, trained professionals who will make you look and feel amazing. The salon is full-service and offers spa and nail treatments as well. They also recently started offering a split end repair treatment that leaves ends sleek. It’s amazing – lasts for about 3 weeks. Ask for it when you book!
