FORTIFY YOUR HAIR NATURALLY WITH THE REDWOOD TREE + BONUS PRODUCT REVIEW: eprouvage Fortifying Shampoo & Gentle Volume Conditioner

by Christina in ,


SEQUOIA SEMPERVIRENS...THE CALIFORNIA REDWOOD TREE?!

This evergreen happens to be the tallest living tree on Earth and also among the oldest living things on our planet as well. They can be up to 379 feet tall and almost 30 feet in diameter, putting these trees in a class all by themselves as sheer "Goliath's". There is more than one species of redwood, but in most cases the term on its own actually refers to this specific species named the sequoia sempervirens or  the California Redwood and Coastal Redwood.

What does the Redwood tree have to do with beauty?! The Redwood's stem cells are extracted and these powerful cells instantly boost cellular activity and repair damage too! These stem cells are inserted into beauty/hair care products to aid in the  prevention and improvement of the signs of aging, while also leaving skin/scalp/hair: soft, moisturized, and rejuvenated :)

After discovering what I did about this awesome ancient living tree, I decided that I had to snag a product and see for myself. I'm always on the hunt for new natural and organic ingredients so I set out to see what I could find! It didn't take much searching surprisingly, as I came across a great brand that makes products that are right in line with my mantra!

Eprouvage is a professional hair care brand that prides themselves in creating products with real science behind them and ingredients like Sequoia Sempervirens Leaf Cell Extract, Egyptian Blue Lily, and fruit extracts! Make sure to see my verdict of eprouvage's awesome products below! You can score their products at: eprouvage.com, independent salons, and at Ulta.com



THE VERDICT:

 

eprouvage

Fortifying Shampoo

$15

Have you been seeking the perfect shampoo that doesn't contain tons of harmful ingredients and yet it's still safe for color-treated or stressed hair?! Your search has now ended ;) Eprouvage really does make an affordable, quality hair care product that's difficult to match. I was very impressed with how well this shampoo cleansed my hair, yet didn't "strip" away my scalp's natural oils- leaving it feeling strong and healthy!

The smell is great as well- it's clean and light. The formula spreads nicely and that means you won't have to use a ton of product to get real cleansing results. I have often found this to be an occurring issue with some natural and organic hair care- it seems to take more product and sometimes quite a bit more, in order to achieve the desired effect :/

You won't get that problem with this product from eprouvage, at all! I'd recommend this shampoo for any age and most hair types as it's inexpensive and effective, without being formulated with unpleasant ingredients! In fact at this price, you can afford to snag the Gentle Volume Conditioner  -it's the perfect companion to the Fortifying Shampoo ;)

Gentle Volume Conditioner

$16

 

This is the perfect addition to any hair care routine, but it's absolutely fantastic in combo with the above mentioned shampoo! The smell is equally as pleasant and it contains the same wonderful qualities as the shampoo as well- quality ingredients with a formula that doesn't dry or weigh hair down, but provides great moisturization and shine!

My hair feels stronger and looks healthier, plus I'm not having to use a product chalked full of ugly ingredients that aren't really all that good for my hair or color. I would recommend this product for all ages, most hair types- even those with color-treated hair can benefit from this conditioner.

5 SIMPLE STEPS TO KEEP YOUR LIPS LOOKING GREAT FOR THE FALL:

by Christina in


USE THESE 5 TIPS TO HELP LIPS IN THE FALL:

  1. Now that it's getting a bit nicer outside, you may want to add a conditioning treatment or balm to your lip routine. These are easy to skip during the hotter months, but when the fall and winter arrives beware of your lips becoming dry:/

  2. With cooler months comes lower temps and that means your lips tend to react to weather changes! Make adjustments by switching to a thicker and/or moisturizing formula of lip gloss, lipstick, balm or treatment. 

  3. There's no "rule" when it comes to color during the cooler... and sometimes duller months! I LOVE adding a little pop of spring or even summer color to my fall or winter lip wardrobe for some added fun to a dreary or cold day :)

  4. It's easy to forget about the sun's rays damaging your lips during colder months like the fall- but it's definitely still causing harm! Try utilizing a lip product that contains SPF 15 or above in order to protect your lips.

  5. You don't have to spend tons of $$$ to get a good product that protects lips affordably and keeps them soft, smooth, and gorgeous! Check out my recommended product below ;)

These adorable little lip balms from Carmex are fun and an inexpensive way to keep your lips soft and moisturized during the fall and winter months :) They are very easy to use and super cute- perfect for on-the-go too! With a price of around $3 a piece, you won't break the bank with this lip balm and will have enough $$$ to spare to get a couple for yourself AND a friend.

Besides the unique designs for such an inexpensive price, what really caught my eye about these slim sticks was the awesomeness of the Carmex lip-treatment without the mess or waste of product! If you do have sensitive skin, no worries here as I have been able to use these daily with no irritation at ll :) I'd recommend these to any age or skin type!
