Invest in your hair, it’s the crown you never take off.
Our hair makes up 90% of our selfies so it’s no surprise many of us probably spend a ton of effort styling it to perfection everyday.
However, have you ever felt like hitting the snooze button and just waking up a little later on some mornings? We don’t actually do it obviously because we know this would mean we’d be too strapped for time to complete our lengthy beauty routines and end up going to work looking like World War Three just took place on our heads.
I guess it’s time to shake up our beauty snow globe!
And I suggest we do that by incorporating some better hair care products into our beauty itineraries.
Now this is where nature and beauty intersect.
When it comes to beauty, it’s always better to go all natural, in this case, we’re talking about the kinds of ingredients we put on our hair and scalp.
This is why I’m always on the lookout for natural plant-based products. If you think that means sacrificing effectiveness, well, that notion is actually pretty passe as it’s been shown time and time again that many botanical products contain ingredients that not only answer all our hair care needs but also do wonders to extend the life of our fresh hair in different weather conditions.
Now that we’ve got that straightened out, you’re probably wondering how you know which natural hair care product is worth your time given the plethora of choices out there.
Well, a good start would be finding a brand known for their ethical commitment to practicing responsible methods which are sensitive both environmentally and socio-economically, a brand driven to find you the best nature has to offer while taking care not to bite the hand that feeds them.
Introducing Klorane, a brand that not only ticks all our go green boxes, but makes some mighty fine hair care products too.
Klorane, based in France, has been honing their craft since 1966 when they pioneered the use of active plant ingredients in their hair care products. Now celebrating 50 years, they show no signs of slowing down their innovation game.
A bottle of their internationally renowned dry shampoo is sold every 10 seconds, responsible for kick-starting a whole new domain for hair care, ideal for those who need to look good but don’t have the luxury of time.
They have a number of swoon-worthy ranges, from their Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk range suitable for all hair types, their Flax Fiber haircare range for fine and limp hair as well as their Mango Butter Hair Care Range for dry hair, Pomegranate Hair Care Range for color-treated hair and Quinine Hair Care Range for thinning hair.
Yours truly was super lucky as I managed to get my mitts on their Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk, Shampoo with Oat Milk and their Leave-In Spray with Flax Fiber.
Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk
Retail Price: $14.60 (150ml)
A bestseller for 40 years, KLORANE’s iconic Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk gently revives your hair in just two minutes, rapidly adding texture and volume to your hair while simultaneously increasing the life of your hair colour or blow-out style!
A cult favorite that’s changed the beauty routines of thousands of women on the go, using an unrivaled formula which combines the soothing properties of oat milk with the absorbing benefits of micronized powders while remaining free of sulfates and parabens.
The product comes in different shades so you can match it to your hair colour.
PRO-TIP!! Close your eyes before spraying 😛
Here’s a before and after using the near odorless dry shampoo hair spray:
Although the photos do look very similar, my hair felt significantly fresher, scalp felt clean and less oily and of course, keeping my hair dry meant I could re-style it much more easily and quickly in a jiffy before heading out. I also love how it doesn’t create a gunky buildup like many other dry shampoos.
I can totally see this becoming a travel essential for all those beach vacays and long haul flights.
For its volume boosting and fuss-free properties, I give it 4.5 out of 5 Honeyz crowns!
Shampoo with Oat Milk
Retail Price: $18.90 (400ml)
With a beautiful aroma that transported me back to my honeymoon in the Maldives, the liquid version of the shampoo affords a more conventional experience but with all the same cleaning and de-greasing benefits.
The shampoo has an extremely light consistency but lathered easily while the oat based formula really helped to soothe my itchy irritated scalp following my recent hair colour treatment.
I love how it provides moisture to my dry and damaged hair without an ounce of added weight. For its super miraculous properties, I give it 4 out of 5 Honeyz crowns!
Leave-In Spray with Flax Fiber
Retail Price: $29.90 (125ml)
This texturizing treatment provides instant and lasting volume by lifting hair at the roots, adding texture one strand at a time, and giving hair body without weighing it down while remaining sulfate-free, paraben-free and silicone-free.
I sprayed the product into my towel-dried hair after shampooing, focusing primarily on the roots. By keeping my head down, I was able to increase volume of my hair.
I was surprised at how well it works with my permed hair. After a few generous sprays, my uncontrollable lion’s mane was immediately tamed, leaving it looking soft yet voluminous.
Most leave-in products feel heavy and wear my hair down, making it difficult to style according to my liking. The Klorane leave-in spray is very light so it was absorbed pretty quickly by my hair follicles. After some scrunching, my curly locks looked like they were ready to run the world again.
I also like how it performs both as a leave-in treatment and also a styling product. It’s perfect for busy city-dwellers who only have minutes each morning to get ready. Less time for beauty, more time to drink beaut’ tea at Starbucks! 😛
I give this 4 out of 5 Honeyz crowns.
