Treat your hair the Jennifer Aniston way

A basic rule (or goal) for any woman is to make sure your hair looks good. The cold hard truth however, is that lustrous, wavy hair doesn’t come easy for most of us so good products are essential.

I have discovered some true luxury products that actually do what they promise: Leonor Greyl is a French brand that has over 35 years of experience in natural haircare – and it has a large celebrity following to show for it. I decided to put some products to the test. I tried and tested: Masque a l’Orchidee, Huile de Palme and Shampooing Reviviscence.

Shampooing-ReviviscenceShampooing Reviviscence: this shampoo is specifically to treat dehydrated and brittle hair. Also very suitable for colour treated hair. The honey-like shampoo massages easy into the hair and smells remarkably soft and sweet. I absolutely noticed my hair felt softer and looked healthier, especially after using it a few times. How does it work? Amaranth extracts (containing heaps of vitamin B and C) moisturize and condition, while Sea Lavender (with plenty of amino acids) hydrates and – bonus – prevents static electricity. Together these ingredients repair the hair’s lipid barrier which benefits the surface of the hair.

Masque-Orchidee-400x400Masque a l’Orchidee: I can be very short about this product; it’s a miracle worker. Especially created to treat frizzy hair, this mask delivers. You can either leave it in 5 minutes for a quick fix or let it soak for about 20 minutes, giving your hair a highly nourishing treatment – and a lovely scent. How does it work? This conditioning mask is formulated with plant ceramides and keratin that strengthen the hair, film-forming silk proteins for shine and botanical oils to increase hair flexibility. Blowdrying is made easier. Curls are more flexible and can be shaped at will. According to her stylist, this is the product that is responsible for Jennifer Aniston‘s smooth hair.

huile-de-palmeHuile de Palme: this treatment for dry hair is to be used before shampooing. It nourishes your hair and protects it from sun and sea/pool water damage.  Before use, put it ‘au bain marie’ to make the product fluid. Apply to your hair, avoiding the roots, comb through and leave in for at least 10 minutes. Rinse and wash with your regular shampoo. You will not believe the effect. The natural oils (100% biological) nourish, repair and soften your hair from root to ends. A great product to repair split ends or  to take on summer holiday to protect your locks.

These products are so refined yet indulging, you just feel they are actually benefitting your hair in many ways. Pure hair luxury. It doesn’t come cheap, but this is one brand that is well worth the investment!
