So many things day-to-day damage our hair, but we still don't take care of it the way that we should. A quote that a hair professional told me one time that has stuck when I told her I didn't have dry hair is "Everyone has dry hair in one way or another and everyone can use hydration even if you don't think you do." I never thought I had anything more than oily or normal hair and was scared of hydration. Oh how wrong I was.
Our hair is our crowning glory. Without it, we would feel lost. A beautiful head of hair makes us feel....... well, beautiful. We always hear comments from others like "She has the most beautiful eyes, smile, skin, body," and you guessed it, "hair". So why not take care of it.
Whether it's the sun, chlorine, bleach, heat damage and numerous other ways to destroy our hair, these 5 products will help to change all of that. Definitely worth the investment ($188 for all 5).
My Hair Horror Story:
My hair is naturally platinum blonde and I like to have it lightly highlighted at times to help keep the brightness of it. I have the most fabulous girl that does my hair (she is naturally blonde as well and knows how it can be).
She had a baby and cut down her hours dramatically, so it is hard to have our schedules line up, so I decided to give someone else a try that had worked at a very high-end prestige salon previously.
I wanted the balayage done and I am not sure what technique or strength of lightener was used, but right after that my hair felt like straw and was falling out in large chunks
I am still dealing with some hair loss, but not nearly what it was. The worst part is that it was all breaking near the top so my hair was getting so thin! I ended up having to cut off about 5 inches since it was getting so thin at the ends. I was literally in a panic everyday. My hair is my unique feature since it is so naturally blonde. I didn't care how much I had to invest, I just needed to make my hair healthy!
I have found that these 5 products quickly are bringing my hair back to normal after using numerous other things that I feel didn't work. This was the perfect concoction for me to grow my hair back healthier than ever!
Here are all 5 and ways to use them:
Phyto Paris® Secret De Nuit
Phyto uses a lot of natural ingredients to help treat and nourish hair. Paraben and silicone free. Not tested on animals.
This product will keep your hair moisturized, because our hair tends to dry out at the ends in between washings. This can only be applied at night, because there are ingredients in it that will deactivate once they hit sunlight. This will help with hydration and prevent breakage at the ends of the hair.
How To Use:
Use 3+ times a week
Brush through the hair. Squirt an amount in the palm of your hand about the size of a quarter and work through the ends and lengths of dry or towel-dried hair at night. Comb through. Repeat a few times as needed. Avoid the scalp. You can style your hair as usual in the morning (even applying it on dry hair).

Phytokeratine® Repairing Thermal Protectant Spray
Paraben free, silicone free and not tested on animals.
Keratine helps repair the shaft of the hair, while the heat-activated ingredients work hard as you heat style. Most people don't realize that you might need to do this a few times while heat styling. Right before blow-drying, and spray again right before the flat-iron or curling iron.
I like to spray this last (right before heat styling) to help seal in everything else I have put on it.
How to use:
Spray on clean dry or damp hair and comb through. Hold spray several inches away from hair and spray evenly root to tip. Don't forget to repeat before using any new heat process.

Toni&Guy® Prep Leave In Conditioner
I actually received mine in my Glossybox. I have a subscription to get deluxe samples and products I have never tried. I received a full size bottle of this goodness.
This is also one of the most important steps of your haircare regimen. I put this in before I comb through my damp hair because it helps relax tangles so I can be more gentle combing it.
My hair is so soft and easy to comb. Tames any frizz that I may have after I have styled my hair and gives a luxurious hydration.
There is only one downside to this product for any of you that are anti-parabens. It has plenty of them. I try to avoid them as much as possible, but this is one of the best leave-in conditioners I have ever used.
How to use:
Stick a quarter-sized amount in the palm of the hand and spread evenly through the entirety of towel-dried hair. Comb through.

Phyto Paris® Leave-In Lightweight Hydrating Oil
Once again, Phyto wins on the natural ingredients category. You can click on the link of any product to read ingredient lists. Paraben and silicone free and not tested on animals.
I use this in conjuction with my Secret De Nuit. I will spray the lengths of my dry hair right before bed after applying my "hair cream".
I also spray it on after I have towel-dried clean hair layering with all of the other products.
It is a lightweight oil that does not weigh down the hair and make it look greasy. It also helps hair to be frizz free and very manageable. I also get extremely shiny hair with this lightweight oil.
How to use:
To be used on dry or towel-dry hair on lengths and ends. Comb through

Kerastase® Initialiste Advanced Scalp and Hair Concentrate
This is a concentrate that helps the root of the hair be as strong and healthy as ever. I have found that my hair grows so fast and healthy when I use this.
I heard about this from a friend that it was recommended to at her salon. I looked into it, and bought it. I was desperate to have my hair grow back fast since it was all falling out. WOW I have definitely seen results in such a short time!
Made with a bunch of botanicals and antioxidants such as green tea extract. It helps to strengthen the base of the hair so it will continue to be strong once it grows longer.
I also feel a texture difference in my hair. I will run a little through the lengths of my hair in addition to the scalp.
How to use:
Use on towel-dried clean scalp.
Comes with a dropper top. Fill the pipette and work through quadrants of the hair. Start at top of hair and squeeze slowly while going to the base of the scalp.
2-3 pipettes for fine to normal hair
4-5 pipettes for thick or curly hair
Massage through scalp and apply hair treatment products as usual.
