The Two Products That Have Really Made a Difference in My Hair

|

It’s been awhile since I have found hair products that really impressed me and made a significant difference with my hair. But as soon as I tried both the Briogeo Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo and the Don’t Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Mask, I was in love with how my hair felt and looked after! The mask was the first product from Briogeo that I tried and was so impressed that I knew I wanted to try other products from the line. I have a few other things that I plan to try from them, but for now these have become instant favorites.

1. Briogeo Scalp Revival Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo – I like to use a scalp scrub at least once a week on my hair because my roots get very oily and it helps to keep my scalp balanced and clean. While this does a good job of really giving my scalp a deep clean, it doesn’t strip it or leave it feeling dry or flaky. It gives me tons of volume and makes my hair feel so fresh and clean. I use it once a week and usually follow with the Briogeo Deep Conditioning Mask. I find that the two together really make a huge difference.

2. Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Mask – I discovered this mask a few months ago and it quickly became a favorite. It’s incredibly rich and hydrating but does not weigh my hair down. Because I have oily roots and dry ends, hair masks can often leave my hair feeling greasy and looking limp. However this did the exact opposite! My hair felt light, bouncy and have tons of volume. There are a few other products from this range that I am anxious to try next – the strengthening treatment oil and the super moisture shampoo.

The Beauty Tools I’ve Been Loving Lately

| , ,

Quarantine has me trying all the beauty treatments and tools. There are three that I have been using regularly and thought I would share my thoughts on each:

1. Face razors – These are technically eyebrow razors, but I use them to shave my face! Only on my cheeks and upper lip to get rid of any peach fuzz but it works wonders. It does help to exfoliate slightly as well. And do not worry, your hair will not grow back thicker. That is a myth and simply not true, and I have seen firsthand that it doesn’t happen. I love the way my foundation goes on after I remove all the hair from my face – it looks so smooth!

2. Nuface Fix – I’ve only been testing this for a short time, but I have noticed a slight difference after using. It’s more of a temporary fix for lines, wrinkles and helping to plump certain areas. I use it around the lines of my mouth as well as my smile lines and they both look less noticeable after. I plan to test the Nuface Trinity next so I am excited to use the two together as I’ve heard they work well when used regularly.

3. Gua sha stone – This is the tool that I have been most excited to use and one that I have seen amazing results from within just a few days! A reader of mine suggested I follow Face Gym’s Instagram for tips on how to use this and I have been doing it almost daily. My face looks less puffy, more contoured and feels so firm! Plus it’s incredibly relaxing and soothing to do. I normally do it on bare skin, but sometimes I use a tad bit of face oil because it helps the stone glide easier over the skin. I also do it after my skincare routine at night when I’m lying in bed watching TV (it doesn’t rub off any product so don’t worry about that – just wait at least 30 minutes if you really want to make sure everything is absorbed). I cannot recommend this enough! Definitely worth picking up to add to your routine.
