How often do you wash your hair? Lately, I've been getting a little slack. Busy days, and nights mean repeated top knot action and trying to stretch my time between washes out more and more. And it's not only strand slackness that's got me unenthused about washing my tresses. I've struggling to find a shampoo and conditioner I really love.
I don't know about you, but my strands become resistant to these essential haircare duos over time - I constantly need to switch up my shampoo and conditioner to see good results. It's like even my own hair is sick of getting washed!
Thankfully, a new drop of products at bbHQ have sparked my interest and reinvigorated my excitment for lock loving. Introducing AlfaParf Milano haircare. Why am I so curious? Well, the range contains UVA and UVB screens to protect hair (essential considering the harsh Australian summers our strands must suffer) Oh, and every single AlfaParf product is also specifically designed to increase shine and folicle strength. But that's not all - the range is designed to target specific strand symptoms, depending on what your hair needs the most. Read on to pick the right products for you...
Reconstruction - for damaged hair
Alfaparf’s Semi Di Lino Reconstruction Shampoo and Reconstruction Mask are ideal for badly damaged hair, or to simply refresh hair after a week of heavy heat styling, or, once summer is here, beach or pool time. They contain Cortex Repair & Bamboo Marrow that restores damage on hair to its original soft and strong glory. Shampoo first, then after rinsing and wringing locks of most moisture, apply the mask to hair and leave for a couple of minutes in the shower whilst you do other bits and pieces, like cleansing etc. Oh hey healthy hair!
Diamond - ideal for coloured hair, but also ace for regular locks
We RiRi said shine bright like a diamond, we don't think she meant hair specifically, but wouldn't it be nice if your locks really could? The Diamond range, including a shampoo, conditioner, andmaskhelps bring her lyrics to life, containing a shine fix complex that ensures shine is gradually released over 24 hours until your next hair wash. Genious! All Diamond producst also contain a Vitamin complex to replenish and benefit all hair types.
Moisture - for dry hair
Super common - even 'regular' hair can be prone to bouts of dryness - add moisture with your regular wash routine with this AlfaParfshampoo, and moisture mask. This part of the range offers a Nutri-Sugars formulation to balance the healthy hydro-level of the hair shaft. In plain English, this means it adds moisture where hair has lost it. Perfect!
Best of all, all products are priced between $25 and $29, so you don't have to fork out more than a fifty for your essential haircare.
So tell me - which of the range do you think would suit you best? Luckily, all products will help all hair types, but do let me know! I'm between trialling the Diamond and Moisture ranges and love them both equally - sometimes, you simply can't pick a favourite! - Lauren
