Every now and then, I will share "My Favorite Things" on the blog. The topics will vary - fashion, skin care, cosmetics, hair care, etc. Today I want to tell you about a hair care product and brand that if you haven't tried, YOU NEED TO!
When I lived up north (that means North Carolina to me!), I started to have my hair colored, cut and styled at one of the local AVEDA salons. When I initially went, I was just back from a very long business trip and I'd been in the process of moving from AL to NC. My hair was in AWFUL shape, so bad that the stylist refused to color it without "color correction". I was devastated - after all - I am a LEO - and our hair is our PRIDE and JOY. My stylist at the time, Mifa, cut about a foot off my hair (per my request), then agreed to color.
She used a product on my hair called "Light Elements Smoothing Fluid":
This is a leave-in product, and I still use it today. I've used it for 6+ years now. It has SINGLE handedly vastly improved the condition and texture of my hair. According to the AVEDA website, here are the benefits of this product:
A fluid styling formula that adds shine and movement as it restores a healthy look and feel to hair. Plant-based ingredients—like certified organic jojoba—help condition and smooth hair.
Smooths, and conditions
Dries with a soft touchable finish
Adds weightless, free-flowing movement, body and natural shine
For all hair types
Application tips, again from AVEDA:
Apply a small amount of Light Elements™ Smoothing Fluid through damp hair. Blow dry and style. For extra shine—or to tame flyaways—apply to dry hair.
If you are suffering from dry, wintery hair (or like me, always looking for something new to try!), give this a whirl! I PROMISE, you will not be disappointed....I bet I've got at least a dozen people hooked on this stuff! :-) You can check out the product on Aveda's website HERE.
