Get Healthy Hair Naturally with Redken Nature’s Rescue

Redken Nature's Rescue

With a growing demand for natural products, and 55% of consumers using natural products in addition to their other hair care products, Redken introduces NEW Nature’s Rescue, a collection of paraben-free, sulfate-free and silicone-free hair care essentials.  Inspired by the ocean and enriched with plant and marine extracts, Nature’s Rescue thoroughly cleanses to remove impurities and buildup while helping nourish and refine the hair. 
 
“In my salons, some clients are looking for more natural hair care products,” states Rodney Cutler, Redken Brand Ambassador and owner of Cutler/Redken Salons.  “Nature’s Rescue is ideal for these clients as it’s formulated for all hair types, safe for color-treated hair, and can be used daily, weekly or on alternate days with a favorite Redken hair care regimen for a complete, healthy-looking hair solution.”
 
“Redken has always used its advanced technology to target specific hair needs with simple solutions,” states Jenny Corless, Director of Global Marketing for Redken.  “With Nature’s Rescue, we are using our technological expertise to answer a market need for more natural hair care products.  Nature’s Rescue features the nutrient-rich Sea-Algae Hydracomplex with sea algae, soy protein and aloe vera to protect and moisturize the hair.  The star products include the Refining Sea Polish, which gently exfoliates with pumice to remove impurities and refine hair’s surface leaving it smooth and shiny.   The Radiant Sea Spray is a lightweight and multifunctional spray that adds texture while time-touch fragrance capsules release bursts of oceanic scent when hair is touched.”
 
Nature’s Rescue includes four products formulated with water-fresh fragrances, cooling sensations and ocean-inspired textures that provide the perfect balance of moisture:
·         Step 1: Detox with Nature’s Rescue Refreshing Detox Shampoo
·         Step 2: Refine with Nature’s Rescue Refining Sea Polish
·         Step 3: Replenish with Nature’s Rescue Cooling Deep Conditioner
·         Step 4: Uplift with Nature’s Rescue Radiant Sea Spray

I love the clean feeling that these products leave in my hair. The shampoo and deep conditioner impart a coolness to my hair and scalp in the shower. I love the Sea Polish, it seems to really scrub my hair and scalp clean. The Sea Spray is a neat idea, my hair is scented all day, especially when touched.

Amazon Beauty Presents Rahua Hair Products

Rahua Shampoo & Conditioner
Rahua Shampoo & Conditioner
Amazon Beauty has created a wonderful hair product line called Rahua made with rain forest grown organic ingredients.
 
The key ingredients in this unique haircare, according to the Amazon Beauty website, “include Rahua® Elixir which instantly repairs damaged hair and speeds hair growth and Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens), a centuries old calming ingredient from aged “holy wood” that imparts an amazingly beautiful aroma and is traditionally used in Shaman ceremonies.” And boy does it smell good!
 
Amazon Beauty Rahua® Organic Shampoo ($32.00 9.3 oz) and Rahua® Organic Conditioner ($34.00 9.3 oz) are a wonderful duo to help dried out hair become soft and managable again. The products are safe and claim to strengthen color-treated and delicate hair. I like to wash with the shampoo then apply the very thick conditioner and leave it on in the bath or shower for a few minutes. When I rinse it out, my hair is noticeably smoother.

Aveda Shampure Shampoo and Conditioner

Aveda’s vision is to, “connect beauty, environment and well-being”. Their wonderful spa products that are infused with natural ingredients, seem to do just that.

I have tried both the Shampure shampoo and conditioner.  The products in this line are very gentle and good for every type of hair.     

Shampure Shampoo ($9.50 USD for 8.5 oz) – “Our pure, gentle daily shampoo—with MorikueTMprotein—cleanses and fortifies any type of hair. Infusing it with one of Aveda’s original aromas: a calming mix of 25 pure flower and plant essences.”  Coriander oil, Eucalyptus oil, Lavender oil, MorikueTM protein, Orange oil bitter, Wheat conditioners, and  Babassu are some of the ingredients.

Aveda Shampure Conditioner ($9.50 USD for 8.5 oz) — “provides daily protection from environmental stress and damage.” The conditioner has the same basic ingredients of the shampoo. I really like both products because they clean and moisturize my hair without harsh chemicals leaving me with soft, silky hair.

The wonderful fragrance is also available in a candle ($28.00 USD). Visit Aveda’s website at www.aveda.com for more information and locations where you can receive spa treatments as well as purchase the products.

Let Your Hair Go Green with the TIGI Love, Peace & the Planet Collection

Love, Peace & The Planet Collection
Love, Peace & The Planet Collection

 Hi all, welcome to my Hair Extravaganza Week! I am reviewing only hair products this week at Forty, Flirty and Fabulous! 

Tigi is introducing it’s Love, Peace & The Planet eco-friendly line. This line of six products is made from natural, paraben free, and mostly organic ingredients that are as good for the planet as they are for your hair!

The products are:

Eco Awesome Cranberry Orange Mint Moisturizing Shampoo ($19.95 USD) — This is the BEST hair scent ever! When you first sniff the bottle, the smell of mint is dominant. But when you shampoo, the cranberry and orange infuse the shower with this incredible fragrance! This is great for the scent alone, but the organic aloe leaf juice, organic geranium, organic lavender and rosemary seed extracts and organic jojoba oil make this shampoo both cleansing and softening.

Eco Awesome Cranberry Orange Mint Moisturizing Conditioner ($19.95 USD) — Same fantastic scent as the shampoo! The conditioner includes organic aloe leaf juice, organic olive fruit oil, organic white tea leaf extract,  and organic glycerin. This product claims to moisturize, impart shine and help fight humidity. My hair does seem less frizzy when I use it.

Let it Be Cherry Almond Leave-in Conditioner ($18.95 USD) — This product has a creamy, comforting scent and is great when you don’t have time to condition in the shower or need an extra moisture boost. The ingredients include: mucor miehei and shiitake mushroom extracts, glycerin, organic shea butter and organic hibiscus and horsetail extracts.

Freak of Nature Lavender Citrus Eucalyptus Volumizer & Thickener ($18.95) — This is a good product for me since my hair is rather thin. The scent is nice but strong, you can really smell the Eucalyptus! I rub this into damp hair, making sure I get the roots, then blow dry. The ingredients include: organic Japanese green tea extract, organic pomegranate extract, organic nettle, organic glycerin and wheat amino protein.

Eco Freako Cherry Almond Texturizer ($22.95 USD) — This texturizer paste includes carnauba, soy and beeswax, hydrolyzed wheat starch, hydrolyzed soy protein and hydrolyzed wheat protein plus organic safflower oil, organic shea butter and organic jojoba seed oil. It adds shine and texture and you can mold your hair into fun and funky ‘dos.

Free Ur Mind Cherry Almond Firm Hold Hairspray ($22.95 USD) — This hairspray gives a firm hold without feeling sticky. The ingredients include: organic lavender, chamomile, geranium and aloe vera gel, panthenol and essential oils.

I highly recommend this line for healthy, green (haha) hair! Check out a TIGI retailer near you!
