With my crazy, frizzy hair, I am always looking for different products that will nourish, hydrate, soften, and accentuate my curls. At Essentique, I have found great products that make me more confident and proud of my curly hair. If you have frizzy, dry hair just like me, give your curls some love and use the following amazing products!
Named after its amazing moisturizing and hydrating benefits, the hair wash “Quench” works wonders, especially for curly, frizzy or damaged hair. It made my hair feel much more hydrated and soft. Not to mention, the smell is wonderful!
The main ingredient in Quench is watermelon. Watermelon is full of an amino acid called citrulline which promotes hair growth. Watermelon also contains vitamin C, which moisturizes and hydrates hair. Quench is also made with a kale protein blend composed of kale, carrots, and lemon protein, which contain antioxidants and vitamin A and C, strengthening hair while increasing elasticity, and making hair thicker and healthier. Quench also contains a botanical blend made of dill, cabbage, broccoli sprout extract, nettle, horsetail, peppermint, and yucca extract which moisturizes the scalp, improves elasticity, and makes hair shiny and silky.
Blue Bliss is an amazing conditioner. It is very nourishing for my dry hair and really helps detangle it. Blue Bliss is made with blue lotus extract, a natural conditioner. Blue bliss flower was a not only symbol of wealth in ancient Egyptian culture, but will make your hair feel rich and silky. Blue lotus increases melanin levels, protecting and strengthening hair. Blue bliss is also made with passion fruit seed oil (just like Butter Up!) which hydrates and makes it healthier. Passion fruit seed oil is rich in vitamin C and hydrolyzed proteins. Blue bliss also contains yarrow essential oil, which gives the conditioner a nice, herby smell as well as cleanses and adds shine to hair. Yarrow has also be shown to prevent hair loss and stimulate hair growth.
The first time I tried Supermasque, I was very impressed with the results. Not only did my hair feel moisturized as I was using it, but even a few days later, my hair felt healthier and stronger.
Supermasque is made with papaya oil and fruit extract, which is extremely rich in nutrients. It contains folic acid as well as many of essential fatty acids that promote hair growth. Its antifungal properties help limit dandruff. Papaya is rich in vitamins A, C, and E, which condition hair as well as protect it and strengthen it. Supermasque is also made with coconut milk, which contains many healthy saturated fatty acids that have amazing moisturizing properties and can help detangle hair, add volume, and restore shine. Supermasque uses keratin, a protein that strengthens and protects hair and acquaseal coconut, a multifunctional ingredient that helps seal in moisture, bring in macronutrients, as well as make hair soft and silky.
Supermasque was easy to use, and really made my dry hair feel revitalized and hydrated.
Not only does Butter Up smell amazing, but I was amazed by how quickly it accentuated my curls. After I wash my hair, it often becomes dry very quickly, and looks frizzy and unmoisturized, but when I used Butter Up, my curls looked hydrated and healthy. It is so easy to apply and gives my hair the moisture that it needs!
Butter up is made with passion fruit seed oil which contains hydrolyzed proteins that make hair hydrated and healthy. Passion fruit is rich in vitamin C, and increases the production of collagen to prevent splitting and breaking. Butter Up is also made with cupuaçu butter, which is very rich in fatty acids, which soften the hair and help it retain moisture. It also has a lot of vitamins and minerals that protect hair. It acts as a great moisturizer for dry, frizzy hair. Butter up is also made with macadamia nut butter, which contains palmitoleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that replenishes the follicles, rejuvenates the hair, and moisturizes and strengthens dry hair. Butter Up also contains guava, which is rich vitamins and nutrients and has great conditioning benefits.
Taking care of curly can take a lot effort, and sometimes, I just don’t have the time to go through my whole hair care process. The leave-in conditioner fenominal helps speed up the process, while still making my curls smooth, hydrated, and soft.
Fenominal is made with fenugreek extract, a great conditioner that soothes the scalp and keeps hair silky and soft. Fenominal also contains macadamia and murumuru oil. Macadamia oil is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants and cleanses, softens, and protects hair. Murumuru oil is rich in vitamin C and A, as well as omega 3 and 6. It has great moisturizing properties and hydrates frizzy hair, as well as softens the texture and repairs brittle and damaged hair.
