After seven years of not coloring my hair, I recently took the plunge. (Thanks, Naomi Knights of the fabulous ION Studio!) And now that my locks are a deeper auburn, I need to take proper care of them. No more sulfates or products not formulated for color-treated hair are coming near these tresses! Luckily, I had just picked up a tube of Klorane No Rinse Care with Pomegranate.
Let's start with the fact that this stuff smells incredible. It's fresh, juicy and sweet -- but not so cloying or overpowering that you'll be inhaling the aroma of citrus fruits all day. It somehow sinks into each and every strand, leaving behind a delightfully lush scent that just helps to perk you up throughout the day. And I love the light pinkish-red tinge to the cream, which is so much more fun than the normal white or clear you get with hair products.
I've been using it on my hair after I get out of the shower, and I've been amazed at the difference. Not only is my color richer and brighter without seeming brassy, the hair itself is softer and sleeker than the days I don't end up using it. It actually works as a leave-in conditioner for my hair, rendering all other straighteners and smoothers unnecessary! Ingredients like the aforementioned pomegranate, along with plenty of antioxidants, help to keep hair looking rich and vibrant for weeks at a time.
Klorane No Rinse Care with Pomegranate retails for $16 at drugstore.com.
