Hair Care I ENJOY

Hola Bonitas! 
(I hope that's correct Spanish grammar!) I want to share my favorite hair care products with you that I have purchased time and time again. If they quit making any of these products, I'll be lost and maybe even shed a tear or two, lol. I hope you will try them out if you feel like your hair is in a rut or maybe you just don't love your current hair care products (which you should!). If you have used any of these in the past, or currently use some of these, please comment your thoughts below! I would love to hear what you think :) ....ENJOY! <3

First Things First: Shampoo & Conditioner

This is my favorite shampoo and conditioner, EVER! It's the SULFATE-FREE LUXURY SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER. I can't tell you how many people I've had hooked on this after trying mine. There are several different variations of this shampoo and conditioner to choose from depending on your hair type but let me tell you....they didn't name this stuff "Luxury Shampoo" for nothing! When you rinse your hair out, you will think it turned into silk. It's super concentrated and thick, so a little product goes a looong way! I use about a Dime size of product each time I wash my hair. 

More things to Enjoy:

*Tested on Hairdressers, Not animals! (Very important!)
*Made in the U.S.A. (Proud American here ;))
*Smells amazing! 
*Shampoo can double as a luxurious skin wash
*Conditioner can double as a shaving cream
*Sulfate-Free (*Tip*What you should also wash hair extensions with that are real hair, if you have them)
*Whitney Port loves it too! You can read about that here:

You can only purchase Enjoy online or at a hair salon/select beauty supply stores because it is professional hair care. That being said, you will spend a pretty penny on this shampoo/conditioner but it will last you for many months, it's good for your hair and you will be addicted. No buyer's remorse here! It comes in a 10.1oz/300 ml bottle which sells for around $25 each or you can purchase the economy size 33.8oz for around $50 each. 

Second: Leave-In Conditioner

I think I have used this leave-in conditioner for about 8 years or so. The bad thing is that my hairdresser did tell me that this product is going to be discontinued :'( The last time I went to the beauty supply that normally carries it, it was no where to be found! I know of a couple supply stores that still carry it and of corse, there is always the internet. It's by Ecoly Formulas and it's called Tri-Wheat Leave-In Conditioner and Detangler. 

Why I love it:

*Smells amazing
*Designed for all hair types
*Natural ingredients such as wheat protein, walnut leaf extract and water lilly extract leave hair tangle free and eliminate static
*Helps prevent split ends

The Back-Up Plan

Luckily I have found a back-up, if or when my "go-to" vanishes. I got it as a sample from a hair salon and it's called, It's a 10. To be honest, I am more in love with the smell of this leave-in conditioner than I am the Tri-Wheat leave-in conditioner! It's a 10 smells like the perfume Ralph by Ralph Lauren! I'm sure many of you know that fragrance! It smells so fresh but has a hint of fruitiness as well. I am addicted to the scent of this stuff. It detangles hair just as well as my Holy Grail favorite above, so I will agree that it truly is a, "Miracle leave-in product!" 

What a Miracle Leave-In Product does:

*Repairs dry damaged hair
*Adds shine
*Smooths and controls frizz 
*Seals and protects hair color
*Flat iron spray and thermal protector 
*Stops hair breakage 
*Creates silkiness
*Enhances natural body
*Prevents split ends!

Whewww! That's a lot of action in one bottle. 

It's a 10 also has a Sulfate-free shampoo! This hair care line is next on my, "to try" list. I am not one to shy away from products that I already love. Once I love something, I stick with it but I am so impressed with this conditioner that I want to try more of this company's products! I will do an updated review/comparison on the shampoo & conditioner when my Enjoy runs out :)

I was going to include my favorite styling products in this blog (to go along with the hair theme) but I don't want to overwhelm you with the product and information already listed here. This would be too long and I don't want to bore you ;) Hopefully you look forward to my next bog that will be all about BIG, SEXY HAIR!
