Taking Care Of Color Treated Hair With Orlando Pita Play

orlando pita play review by iliketotalkblog

Now that I treat myself to hair appointments every six weeks, I’ve really tried to focus on my haircare a bit more. Color treated hair requires a bit more care, especially with fantasy colors that fade a bit quicker. I also don’t want my hair to feel processed or ruined, so treatments that nourish and repair are important for me too. It was by luck I was sent Orlando Pita Play products which couldn’t be more suited my recently colored hair.

Orlando Pita Play has four product lines that focus on either: volumizing, smoothing, color care, and deep repair. While all the products look enticing enough to try, the two I’ve used were perfect choices for me. The Former Glory Protein Treatment spray helps in repair and protecting from damage while the Hair Purifier Vinegar Cleansing Mask cleanses the hair and scalp to promote vibrant hair color.

The Former Glory Protein Treatment spray is used after shampooing and is spritzed on wet hair from root to ends. This product does have a perfume scent to it which maybe be strong for some – but it’s only for a minute that you notice it before the shower steam makes it dissipate. During the few minutes you leave it on your hair, the spray works to repair damaged parts while strengthening and preventing future damage with its special Fortifinity Complex. This proprietary blend uses amino acids, proteins and lipids to make hair look healthy and shiny once again. I can see myself using this often since I have frequent color changes.

The Hair Purifier Vinegar Cleansing Mask was the very first hair mask that I’ve used that focuses more on the roots than the ends! The purpose of this mask is to enhance color and cleanse the hair and scalp for vibrant, longer lasting color. Fantasy colors don’t hold well so anything that helps it stay longer is a necessity! I scoop out a dollop and massage directly into the scalp while  adding just a tiny bit more water for it to lather up a bit. I leave it on while I use my shower poof and rinse before shaving my legs. The brand does recommend using it for 5-20 minutes which is a reasonable amount of time — at least for my kinda showers! Once I rinsed my hair felt fantastic and smoother. I still follow with my color enhancing conditioner, but I definitely felt a difference!

I’m really glad I found out about these products because I do feel that my hair feels very healthy even though it’s colored often.

You can find Orlando Pita Play products at ULTA both in stores and online. To find out more about the brand you can visit them on Facebook and Instagram.

Dermorganic Color Care Collection

dermorganic color care collection review by iliketotalkblogiliketotalkalot iliketotalkblog reviewIf you’ve ever colored your hair you know how beneficial it is to use the right products to keep the color vibrant and healthy looking. In my younger years I used to bleach my hair until it was like straw and never thought past using a deep conditioner every once in awhile to save my hair. Well, that ongoing abuse lead to severe hair breakage and me growing a mohawk in my teens that any girlfriend from high school would clearly remember. Now that I’m older and wiser, I look at every product I use on my hair and skin with a critical eye and while the classic line from Dermorganic has always worked great, the Color Care Collection is just what I needed.

I have a balayage that is almost grown out, but I’m still babying because I like the highlights that have lingered in the lower portion of my hair. The lightened ends are more prone to split ends, breakage and dulling since they’ve been chemically processed so using gentle products that offer additional protection are the first I grab for in the shower.

The Dermorganic Color Care Collection is vegan, cruelty-free, made with nourishing organic ingredients and includes UV protectors made from sunflower and grapeseed extracts to help keep colored hair shiny, moisturized and vibrant. It’s also free of sulfates, salts, sodium chloride and artificial preservatives while remaining pH balanced to keep the cuticle sealed for a reflective, shiny appearance.

The scent is fruity and delicious. I can’t quite put my finger on what the scent is, but I like it.

dermorganic color care collection review by iliketotalkblogI have very long, fine hair that always needs conditioning to keep it tangle free. I’m one of those people that wish the conditioner bottle was twice as big as the shampoo bottle. There’s just never enough! Luckily I don’t need to pile it on with Dermorganic.  Dermorganic’s Color Care Conditioner gives my hair a second dose of argan oil, lipids, rice amino acids, sunflower and grapeseed extracts while leaving it silky soft and easy to comb without tearing or causing further breakage. I also really love that the fruity scent continues to leave my hair smelling extra delicious.

Dermorganic’s 8-Way Thermal Spray works wonders to help in detangling hair while offering heat protection up to 450 degrees. It doesn’t stop there though; it also works to fight frizz, strengthen damaged hair and guard against day to day pollutants that dull our hair over time.  Just a few spritzes are needed to help keep my hair easy to manage, and I felt like it helped in blow drying my hair faster than I expected. My hair felt incredibly smooth after blow drying and kept me wanting to run my fingers through it for the rest of the day, even in hot, sticky So Cal weather.

Dermorganic Color Care products can be found at your local ULTA or found at their website and retail for $18 each in a generously sized bottle. To find out more about the brand you can follow them on Facebook and Instagram for tips, giveaways and hair inspo.
