My Go-To Quarantine Hair Care Products – Bath & Body Works, Lush, Avon, Aveda & More!

Being home I have a ton of time to care for my hair and actually my hair care routine hasn’t changed much since my pre-quarantine days! I never really liked the beauty salon — I’m more of a do-it-yourself girl. My hair is extremely thick and wild which makes it hard to get a good cut so I just do it myself.

Here’s me in the 10th grade and from last year! I had huge hair in the 80’s and it was usually feathered and sprayed. A stiff wind couldn’t blow my style away!

My natural hair color is a dark blonde so I usually lighten it with the L’Oréal Age Perfect by Excellence hair dye in shade 8N Medium Natural Blonde or 9N Light Natural Blonde. It’s a bit darker when I first dye it but lightens over time.

Here my are go-to quarantine hair care products!

From Lush – I have been using the Lush Shampoo Bars now for over 4 years now and I love them! These round disks provide a fragrant natural feeling lather. My favorite shampoo bars are Seanik (sea salt), Montalbano (lemon) and Jumping Juniper (lavender). I created a video review below too!

From Avon – Lately I’ve stopped using my flat-iron and I’m letting my wavy hair grow out. My go-to daily conditioner is now the Avon Advance Techniques 360 Nourish With Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner. This conditioner is amazing and reduces my daily frizz without weighing my hair down. It reminds me more of a cream rinse than a conditioner!

I also use the Advance Techniques 360 Nourish With Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo which has a nice light floral scent and leave me hair super clean and fresh. I use this shampoo about 2-3 times per week.

I’ve also been using the Avon Elastine PropoliThera Repair Conditioner which has been giving my hair an amazing shine! It has honey, royal jelly and propolis. I am loving the octagon pump bottle too!

This Korean Beauty product is super powerful and a little goes a long way. However, it does have an extremely heavy floral scent that’s a bit too strong for me so I usually leave this one on for about 5 minutes rinse then follow up with the Avon Advance Techniques 360 Nourish With Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner to reduce the scent.

From Paul Mitchell – OMG the scent of this the Paul Mitchell Tea Tree shampoo is simply amazing and soooooo strong! I leaves my hair squeaky clean but I can’t use it everyday because it’s a bit harsh on colored hair.

From Aveda – I love the Aveda Damage Remedy that came in my FabFitFun Box. I use this treatment on my wet hair and it does a great job with overall hair repair. I also love the natural scent from Aveda products.

From South Mane – I am a huge fan of hair oil treatments and the South Mane Macadamia Oil Treatment is so nice! A tiny bit goes a long way and it leave my hair soft and shiny. It has no scent and includes natural UV protection!

From Bath & BodyWorks – Finally, I rely on Bath & Body Works for hair mists and masks and I am really hoping we get a new line for Summer 2020.

My past favorite hair mists which I still use are the At The Beach Sea Salt Mist and the Protective Hair Perfume with UV Absorbers + Aloe!

I am also a huge fan of the Bath & Body Works Hair Mask collection. I still have the Bamboo Strengthening, Shine Hibiscus and the Avocado Smoothing formulas and they give my hair a beautiful shine!

Below is my Bath & Body Works Hair Mask collection video review!

So as the stay-at-home orders drag on I think I’m going to try to grow out my hair a bit more and I’m also on the look out for new hair products so feel free to leave your favorites below!

Avon Advance Techniques 360 Nourish With Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner Review

Haircare in quarantine is a mixed bag. Wash? Color? Cut? At home techniques run the gamut but oddly my hair is flourishing right now!

I’ve stopped using my flat-iron and I’m letting my wavy hair grow out. My go-to conditioner is now the Avon Advance Techniques 360 Nourish With Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner.

I use the Lush Shampoo Bars (my favorite is Seanik) then I use my Avon conditioner. I love that this conditioner is light but at the same time tames my frizz. If I use a heavy conditioner my hair gets weighed down, using a light conditioner makes it impossible to comb. I’ve found this one to be perfect!

The Avon Advance formula also smells amazing! It’s a light creamy floral that’s not overpowering! It’s got vitamin E and provitamin B5 to condition and I’m super happy with the results! My hair is shiny and manageable!

The Avon Advance Techniques 360 Nourish With Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner is on sale right now for $4.89 and you can order right my my Avon page.

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Coconut Milk Shampoo & Conditioner Review

My mom picked up the Alba Botanica Hawaiian Coconut Milk Shampoo & Conditioner because she loved the smell and now we’re both loving these products!

IMG_3017.jpg

What’s to love?

First up, I love that Alba is gluten free and has no parabens or phthalates. I really love the giving culture of Alba too.

The Hawaiian Coconut Milk Shampoo smells amazing and is sulfate free. The lather is not huge with this shampoo but it does clean my hair very nicely and moisturizes with Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice and coconut

The Hawaiian Coconut Milk Conditioner is super thick and a little goes a long way. It Sunflower Seed Oil, Moluccana Seed Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil and Papaya Fruit Extract to name a few ingredients. It is so easy to get a comb through my hair after using this conditioner and it leaves my hair soft and shiny.

Overall I am super impressed with both of these products!

Lush Veganese Conditioner Review

The Lush Veganese Conditioner is supposed to be for fine hair but I like it a lot on my thick curly hair as well!

IMG_1502.JPG

What’s to love?

Veganese is a light Vegan conditioner with “a mineral-rich agar agar gel base to soften hair and a herbal rosemary and lavender infusion for a healthy scalp” and it has a lemon juice for shine.

The scent is unique and earthy. It does not smell lemony but more earthy and like seaweed but I do like the scent. The formula is very thin and works into my hair very well and does not weight it down at all. I’ll have to say that it does also make my hair very shiny too! I am really liking this conditioner.

Aveda Dry Remedy Moisturizing Conditioner Review

When my hair needs a good deep conditioning I usually turn to Aveda. They are one of my favorite hair care products along with Lush. The Dry Remedy Moisturizing Conditioner does a great job taming my locks and it smells so good.

a.jpg

What’s to love?

Dry Remedy has the classic Aveda Pure-Fume scent with with certified organic lavender, bergamot, ginger lily and other pure flower and plant essences.

I have thick wavy hair and the dry remedy gives my hair a nice smooth finish and tames my frizz a bit which is great for Summer. This formula applies like a cream but does not weigh my hair down either which I love. I usually leave it on for about 5 minutes.

And as an additional plus Aveda is having a 20% off + free shipping sale today if you use the code LOVE which is pretty cool.

Bumble & bumble Seaweed Conditioner Review

I have to say my new favorite hair brand is Bumble & bumble. I picked up the Seaweed Conditioner this week and I love it!

bb

What’s to love?

The Bumble and bumble Seaweed Conditioner is very light and is a thinner consistency than a lot of conditioners I’ve used however that does not mean it’s ineffective.

After shampooing with the Lush Big Shampoo I applied about a quarter sized drop to my chin length hair. It was easy to work into my thick hair and the smell is amazing. It’s a fresh lime scent with a sea salt undertone. It’s so fresh and pretty. It also did a nice job of detangling my hair.

It was also very easy to rinse out and after a few uses I noticed that my hair has been super shiny and manageable. It does a great job on my frizz and I feel like every time I use it my hair looks better.

Overall I love it! This is going to be my new Summer conditioner and I’d like to try a few more products from Bumble and bumble.

Ingredients include: Ascophyllum Nudosum Extract, Macrocystis Pyrifera (Sea Kelp) Extract and Spirulina Maxima Extract

Price: $25

The Bunble and bumble Seaweed Conditioner is part of my May Beauty Favorites!

Aveda Rosemary Mint Review

I have been a fan of the Aveda Rosemary Mint collection for years so I was thrilled when my husband got me the Rosemary Mint Shampoo, Conditioner and Hand & Body Wash for my birthday last month.

rmm

What’s to love?

The Aveda Rosemary Mint is one of my comfort scents. I am a huge fan of mint and this scent is a strong one. It’s a combination of “certified organic rosemary and peppermint with other pure flower and plant essences” and it reminds me of Christmas.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo – I use the shampoo when I feel like my hair needs a deep cleaning. This one makes my scalp tingle in a really good way and the smell from the lather is so strong and amazing. It really does wake me up as they say on the Aveda website.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Conditioner  The conditioner is equally strong in mint smell and it does a great job detangling my hair. I use this shampoo a few times a month for shine too.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Hand and Body Wash – This body wash is so fresh and minty and really does a good job of waking me up too. I love using it in the morning for aroma therapy, the mint smell is so refreshing. It’s got a nice lather and rinses clean too.

I also really want the new Aveda Rosemary Mint Body Polish. I’ve heard really good things about this gentle exfoliator.

The Aveda line is Made in the USA.

Nature’s Gate Awapuhi Ginger and Holy Basil Shampoo & Condition Review

Last week when I was at the Fresh Thyme Farmers Market I picked up the Nature’s Gate Awapuhi Ginger Holy Basil Shampoo & Conditioner because it was buy 1, get 1 free.

ng.jpg

What’s to love?

While my go-to shampoo are the Lush Shampoo Bars I like to mix it up once in awhile and I’m always on the look out products I’ve never tried.

The Nature’s Gate Awapuhi Ginger and Holy Basil Shampoo & Conditioner  is Vegan, Non-GMO, Paraben Free, Gluten Free,  Soy Free and Cruelty Free. However the thing that really drew me in was the scent, it’s smells like Hawaii. Years ago I used the Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Shampoo and really loved it.

Along with the Awapuhi Ginger it’s also got Holy Basil and Wild Cherry Bark which make for a great fragrance.

This shampoo and conditioner is a volumizing variety and it really did give my hair some lift. This isn’t something I’d use all the time because I have thick hair and too much volume really makes my hair wild. The conditioner did make my hair super easy to comb through.

Overall I’m impressed with this shampoo/conditioner combo and I’ll probably be using it  a few times per month.

Nature’s Gate also has Tea Tree + Sea Buckthorn, Aloe Vera + Macadamia Oil, Jasmine + Kombucha, Pomegranate + Sunflower, Lavender + Peony, Jojoba + Sacred Lotus, Hemp + Argan Oil, Fruit Blend Grapefruit & Wild Ginger, Herbal Blend Lemongrass & Clary Sage and a few other combos of shampoo and conditioner.
