Greetings to all Alimero participants!
Recently, many articles on hair care have appeared on the site. This theme is especially relevant in the fall, so I decided not to fall behind and write a couple of topics about my departure. At first I will tell about the purchased products. First of all, I pay attention to the naturalness of the composition, then to the cost, economy, smell and other aspects of the issue.
I must say that I already ate the dog in this difficult task. On many mass-market shampoos, such as Timotey, Sansilk, Fruktis, etc. I had dandruff, sometimes my hair started to fall out with a vengeance, the products were more expensive, for example, Jacques Desange, were not much better.
I found salvation in a pharmacy, for more than two years I bought shampoos only there, but somehow I decided to try two budget ones and with a claim to the naturalness of the shampoo, and I was pleased.
So, the first is not even shampoo, but natural Siberian bath soap from Agafya.
Foams fine, economical consumption, the volume of such a jar is 500 ml, it lasts for a very long time. The cost is about 150 rubles. The smell reminds me of a forest after a rain, pleasant, fresh. But in this soap in the composition there is a hated laureth sodium sulfate. This ingredient is in 99% shampoos, and it is very harmful for hair. Now I’m looking for a shampoo where there is no laureth, I know that Natura Siberik has a composition without this component. But so far failed to try.
The second shampoo that I use at the moment is shampun active action pepper to strengthen hair from a hundred recipes of beauty.
The composition is not impressive, there is a lot of chemistry and sodium laureth sulphate is right there, but neither dandruff, nor itching, nor increased precipitation after shampoo. As a bonus – hair sooo shiny. It costs about 60 rubles. Consumption is average, the smell is funny, Coca-Cola, I like it.
It is IMPOSSIBLE to comb the hair after washing without using a balm or conditioner, at least I have not succeeded with long hair. I will share a secret, I always add vitamins in shampoo in liquid form. On 100 ml. shampoo 2 ampoules vitamin B1, B6, B12.
Next come the masks and balms. At the moment I use 4 masks, three for wet washed hair and one for dry, even before washing.
First Silk Cream Mask from Homemade Recipes.
The product smells good, has a very delicate and silky texture, easy to apply, easy to wash off, hair shining, combing well. The cost of the jar in 500 ml is about 100 rubles. Will I buy this mask yet? Definitely yes.
The second product in this series is Vitamin regenerative hair balm Pliusonda from the Belarusian company Bielita.
I bought this can, for I had heard many rave reviews, but I am not yet impressed. The balm is very liquid, of a strange blue color, the smell is chemical and vaguely resembles the smell of hair dye.
Perhaps, he shows himself from the best side on lifeless, discolored, damaged hair after dyeing and curling, and therefore it is difficult for me to appreciate it. The cost, of course, allows you to experiment, only 80-90 rubles for 500 ml. Hair react well, shine, comb easily. But will I buy more? I think no.
The third mask is intense silk mask from the company Sanotint.
Unlike the previous two products, it is not necessary to use it as a balm, it is suitable for use 1-2 times a week, because it is rather thick and requires both a thorough distribution through the hair and a thorough flushing. The texture is viscous, the smell is strange, something between plant and platstmassovym simultaneously.
The cost of a bottle in 200 ml. – about 600 rubles, but the mask justifies its money, the expense is economical and the result is excellent, the hair is soft, docile, glowing with health. I’ve been buying not the first year, I already have this bottle 4 or 5th.
Fourth mask against hair loss mud from Vitex I put on clean hair before washing for 20-30 minutes.
The smell is tolerable, but not very pleasant, the flow is large, the tube costs 80 rubles, I did not notice the effect, to be honest. The consistency is thickish, dark sand color.
I was hoping for this mask as a remedy, but if it works, it is only as a preventive measure. I tried and forgot, I will not buy more.
Next I have sprays.
In the daily circulation I have three sprays: I apply one to the roots that are still wet after washing, the second – for better combing on the hair, the third I use for the night.
The first spray, which is also known in my diet, as night – Hair Vitamins Based on Rosehip Microemulsion Oil from Homemade Recipes.
This spray was nocturnal after I discovered that it dirtied hair, tarnishes and even confuses a little, you definitely cannot show people with such a head. I don’t even know why I’m already buying the second bottle with this characteristic, but I think the tool works, the hair feels more confident in terms of strength.
Spray spray is excellent, the smell is natural, pronounced dogrose. In a bottle of 100 ml., The issue price of 50 rubles. I will buy, at night you can afford.
As a spray for wet hair on the roots, I used 2 products. The first is Herbal infusion for hair collection number 2 from Green Pharmacy.
I like this product very much, firstly, it is impossible to overdo it with the product, the hair does not stick together and does not dull, comb well, and secondly, the smell is natural and light and at the same time capable of blocking the smell of any homemade masks. A good spray, for 250 ml ask 150 rubles, but the flow is decent, left a jar for a month. I think I’ll buy more, if the meeting is on sale.
The second option is Burdock serum from Elfa Pharmaceutical Factory.
It is also quite a decent tool, with a good spray, but a more obsessive and vegetable smell. The cost of a bottle in 100 ml – 200 rubles.
Sprays, which I use throughout the length to facilitate combing hair, periodically change. Now this Elseve loreal.
What I want to say is that the smell is pleasant, the spraying is excellent, but if you suddenly grope and sprinkle more than you need, your hair will stick together a little. Before this product, I had Pantene Aqua Light, and I like it more.
And more small additions to my care.
Firming complex for hair against hair loss from homemade recipes.
In a pack of 8 ampoules, the contents of the ampoule are oils with some kind of impurity, which allows the product to be much easier to wash off the hair. I bought the second set, I also like the fact that it is enough to apply the product just 30 minutes before washing and availability — the packaging costs 40 rubles. And the result is, hair less climb, shine, I even noted for myself the volume of the root.
And finally, of course, vitamins.
I choose the choice of vitamins responsibly, read reviews, compare compositions. Once I read that many praise Priorin, German vitamins, the price for the course reached 100 euros, I started reading German forums and came across a curious comparison of Priorin and Complex for healthy hair and nails from Doppelherz active.
The Germans found that Doppelgerts had all the same ingredients in the composition and even the dose was slightly higher than that of Priorin, and in the meantime, the price for a course of 2 months was 450 rubles. The benefit is obvious. I also accept fish oil and folic acid. All vitamins together give an excellent result.
The topic came out gigantic, thank you for your attention, I hope the information will be useful for you and will help you to avoid unsuccessful purchases.
All beautiful, thick, shiny hair!
