Hair Cleanser And Conditioner
- Last year, my friend Sara from 'SWalkermakup' introduced her YouTube viewers to a product called 'Hair One' and although none of us knew what it was EVERYONE who watched that video wanted a slice of 'Hair One's' powers after hearing such a fabulous review from Sara.
I was one of those people in awe of such a product that works similarly to the 'co-washing' principle (for anybody who doesn't know what co-washing is, it is basically where you wash your hair with conditioner). Little did I know I already had a chubby bottle of 'Hair One' in my lotions & Potions cupboard that I had bought from TK Maxx a few weeks before I watched Sara's video for £5.99! REEEESULT!!!!
I always enjoy buying weird and wonderful products for my body or my hair from TK Maxx's potion shelf. It's always nice to try something a little bit different and also try something that perhaps isn't very commercialised. Usually by doing this, you find a little gem and that is exactly what happened here.
Hair One is a sulphate free ( because of this it doesn't bubble up like a shampoo so oddly, you aren't really working with a lather) hair cleanser and conditioner containing extracts of cucumber aloe. It comes in a few different versions, there is one for dry hair, another for normal hair (which is the one I have) another for coloured hair and one for a sensitive scalp.
Hair One markets itself as a 'new natural approach to hair care!" and claims to cleanse, condition, detangle, reduce frizz and add shine.
And that my good readers....it bloody does!!!
To use it, you basically follow the instructions on the back.
In a nutshell you apply 5-7 pumps to the crown of your head and 8-10 pumps to the nape/back of your head. Then onto the crazy part.....You have to vigorously massage the product into your scalp for 2-3 minutes...now let me tell you now! THREE MINUTES MASSAGING YOUR HEAD IS A BLOODY LONG TIME ha ha!!!
The second step solely depends on your hair length it states about 5 pumps for hair above your shoulders, 7 pumps for hair down to your shoulders and 10 pumps for long hair, the instructions say THE MORE THE BETTER. WooHoo!
You then leave this to deep condition your hair for about 3 minutes.
After this time you start the whole massaging and rinsing process again! Yikes, quite a process huh?
BUT SO WORTH IT! What I love about this product is that it removes any old product that is clinging to your hair and the way it tingles on my scalp really feels like it is working.
I have rediscovered 'Hair One' after using it religiously last year and I have been using it alternately to my Henna shampoo and conditioner (see post below for the henna review) I love the minty, teatree-esc smell of it too it is sooooo fresh smelling! Perfect for a good cleaning job!
Hair One is incredible. My hair ALWAYS feels ridiculously soft and smooth when I have finished the process and blow dried my hair it feels SALON QUALITY! Yay!
I love this product and I am so glad I found it lurking in the back of my cupboard and re-discovered it's amazingness.
As I bought this from TK Maxx in Leeds about a year a go they probably don't stock it anymore but if you live in the uk you can purchase it HERE or if you are an American reader you can purchase Hair One HERE or pop into your Sallys beauty store.
I featured this product in my latest YouTube video. :)
