Nothing feels better than a trip to the hair salon. It's so nice to get it trimmed, colored (which I highly thank my crazy talented hairdresser Molly Strover for making it a beautiful auburn balayage), and styled for the final touch to make it picture worthy. You can't help but feel like a celebrity walking out of the salon waiting for paparazzi to snap pictures!
Haircare is so important, especially if you have long, thick hair like mine. It can be a pain in the ass to take care of. Imagine trying to blow dry your hair for twenty minutes and the ends are still wet. No joke, it's a struggle!
But you can avoid frizzy or puffy long hair by taking the time to treat it with good shampoo and conditioner products. Molly tried out some brand new products by System Professional on me to see if it would work well with my hair, and the results were better than expected! Here are two of the products she used, and one that I have yet to try out myself:
It's the perfect shampoo if you have dry, untamed hair that tends to get frizzy in humidity, which mine is keen to. You'll immediately notice the results after using it when you blow dry it and feel the soft, smooth texture. If there's anything us ladies with thick hair need more of, it's smooth hair that's easy to treat!
A healthy cream that is great to moisturize hair with on a daily basis. On the System Professional website, it is suggested to apply 1-2 pumps of the conditioner after shampooing and drying the hair with a towel. For better results, leave the conditioner in for thirty seconds before washing it out. If your hair tends to be more dry, it's recommended to combine the hydrate conditioner with a smoothen conditioner to improve the softness. Another great perk about this product is that men can also use it!
This is the last product sample that I received. I haven't used a hair mask before, and I'm very excited to try it out. What you're basically supposed to do is put it in your hair after shampooing and leave it in for five minutes before conditioning it, which then you can save time in the shower by cleaning and rinsing your body, shaving your legs, etc. You're also supposed to use it only once a week, it's not mandatory to use it every time you take a shower. I think hair masks are great for anyone with long, thick hair, so I'm ready to try it out. If this hydrate makes my hair more soft and more manageable to style, then I'm definitely going to keep using it.
I can't wait to start using these products more often, I already love how smoother and stylish my hair feels (especially with my new color!) If you have any questions about what I used and about System Professional as a brand itself, comment down below or check out System Professional where you'll find tons of other hair products for all different types of hair textures (although you may want to talk to your hairdresser before you consider buying a product and see what they suggest would be best for you). You're guaranteed to find the one that's right for you!
