Nourish Your Hair With BRÖÖ

review of broo by iliketotalkblogAs a beauty blogger, I am very lucky to come across tons of new products each day and try to test as many as I can — mostly out of my own curiosity, and sometimes because you guys will ask my opinion on something! When I was approached to try out BRÖÖ I was instantly intrigued as it had a very unique base to its product line — BEER! Say what? Yep. Beer. Well why on earth would I want to use beer on my hair or skin? Turns out it has some great components to it that can nourish and improve the hair and skin without the worry of questionable chemicals or ingredients that you can’t pronounce.

Who knew that malted barley and hops could be SO good for the hair with its B vitamins, proteins, minerals and antioxidants that cleanse, repair and strengthen your mane! In addition to that, BRÖÖ includes their natural alternative to silicones, BRÖÖluxe which further enhances the glossiness which I’m all about! Bring on that shine!

review of broo by iliketotalkblogBRÖÖ covers all showering bases with their hair care and grooming line and does it without including ingredients that make us run the other way! Not only is it vegan and cruelty free, but it forgoes the use of sulfates which can be extremely drying to the hair and skin, along with no parabens, phthalates, silicones or artificial fragrance or preservatives! As a mom, I’ve become even more vigilant in choosing which products end up in our bathroom since my toddler will be around them on a daily basis.

While BRÖÖ has a grooming line that can be used by both men and women, I choose to try out their hair products since I like to switch things up often. I have color treated hair that I try to baby as much as possible to stretch out those touch up appointments, and lucky for me ALL of their shampoos and conditioners are color-safe! Hallelujah! I initially had only planned to try their thickening line, but was sent all three of their options and decided I might as well try them all since I had them on hand!

BRÖÖ Invigorating Shampoo and Conditioner If you love minty, cooling shampoos and conditioners then THIS is for you. Talk about a tingle! This is the set I reached for after a sweaty bootcamp session and it’s a real pick me up! I also had to STEAL these back from my husband because he’s all about that pepperminty coolness.

BRÖÖ Moisturizing Shampoo and ConditionerDefinitely a great choice for those of us that have dry or damaged hair since it has Shea Butter in it. It also has a great unisex scent that I loved and my husband wasn’t opposed to! My hair is a bit fine for this formula, but is great to put into rotation every once in awhile for a deep moisturizing treatment.

BRÖÖ Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner I had a feeling this would be my favorite and it was confirmed with first use! First off, the scent is my favorite — a mix of vanilla and orange, and second my ponytail did feel a big thicker and fuller after use! Somehow, barley protein pumps up that hair and gives it that extra oompf us fine hair people crave.

I find each line useful in my household! I like using all three while my husband gravitates toward the invigorating line. I may get him the grooming set which has a multi-use wash, a shave cream and lotion. Sometimes the hubby likes a surprise gift left in his shower to try out.

You can find BRÖÖ nationwide at Walmart stores, Walmart.com. And for a affordable price (under $8 which I consider a steal)!!! To find out more about BRÖÖ, you can visit their website or give them a follow on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

P.S Beauties, I’ll be hosting a giveaway with BRÖÖ on my Instagram for a chance to win ALL THREE LINES – so make sure you are following me to get in on it!

 

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.

dermorganic color care collection review by iliketotalkblogSometimes sulfate-free shampoos lack in the lathering department but Dermorganic’s Color Care Sulfate Free Shampoo works up some good suds to clean hair and rinse away easily. 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.
