I don't know about you ladies, but this summer heat is killing my hair. I have naturally thick hair and it's constantly breaking, and just looks plain old bad.
That's until I started using Living Proof's Restore line.
It's honestly amazing. I actually had a hair emergency right before I received the products (let's just say I tried adding blonde highlights and ended up with cotton-candy-hued hair), so it was the perfect time to test it out.
The shampoo and conditioner are both quite thick. I felt like it cleaned my hair without stripping it of anything that needed to be there. The smell is also super yummy. It's a little citrus-y, and made my hair feel clean and soft.
The mask treatment is probably my fave product in the line. Since my hair was so damaged, I started out using the shampoo, conditioner, and the mask just to get the most restoring power. It works like most hair masks--you leave it in for up to five minutes and rinse it out. But it made my crazily bad hair look and feel soft and healthy.
After washing, I added about a quarter-sized amount of the targeted repair creme. It doesn't leave hair looking greasy, but does tame hair and--get this--makes it even softer and shinier! Love it!
I also tried out the Recovery Regimen, which includes four "doses" of the product to use once a week, in place of conditioner. I have to say, I used this stuff for the past month and have definitely noticed a difference in my hair. Combined with the rest of the Living Proof products, the regimen makes hair softer, more manageable, and healthier in general. When I started out, my hair was really bad; I'd even say it was straw-like. By the end of the month, it looked like actual healthy hair! It's easier to style, and looks gorgeous, if I do say so myself!
The products range from around $20-$45, and really is worth every penny. The products are super concentrated, so they last forever!
Also, Living Proof has a great deal going on right now. For $29, you can buy the Discovery Kit, which includes mini-sized shampoo, conditioner, and the treatment mask. It's a great way to try out the products before going all out and buying everything.
The whole line is absolutely incredible and I recommend it to anyone who has damaged hair. It's perfect for summertime, when hair is at its worst.
