Beauty Test Kitchen: Hair Essentials

Monday, September 22, 2014 HALFSTACK MAGAZINE

Hey readers!!

Last week was a whirlwind with our latest issue release! Thank you so much for checking it out and if you haven't you can read it here. Today, I am bringing to you a round up of new hair products we've been testing at the Halfstack Office. These are products focused on healthy hair and styling.

The Rozge Grow Fast shampoo and conditioner have been helping me with growing out my hair since I have had cutters remorse from my last chop this past spring. GrowFast™ Shampoo and Conditioner promote the growth of hair. Infused with peptides and vitamins that help strengthen hair shaft and prevent dryness and breakage. Safe for all hair types, GrowFast™ adds body and a healthy shine to hair, while conditioning and strengthening hair to improve manageability. I found that the shampoo and conditioner tended to weigh my hair down. So, if you face the same issues as me with my naturally oily hair, I would suggest using the product no more than 3 times a week. I definitely have noticed growth + a quarter of an inch. My hair grows incredibly slow, so I am just trying to be patient, but some is better than nothing and my hair definitely feels stronger!

The next product I am highlighting are these fun pop in pieces from hairuwear. Who remembers my red head days from back when Halfstack first launched? Well, enjoy below!

Anyways, as beautiful as that red was, it did a number on my tresses. So, I took a break from coloring all together. But, these pop in colors are a fun way to do something different. They are real human hair so you can use hot tools on them.  Check them out here.

Alright, so the next items we highlighted were the fortify vitamins and shine serum from Gloss & Toss.  It literally is celebrity shine in a bottle. Created by stylists to the stars - Billy Lowe. Make sure you check out his interview with us on the site this week! What I liked most about this product was that it is specially formulated to give shine without leaving that residue that weighs your hair down!

Finally, I shared the Wet Brush, Shine Brush and Rusk hair sprays. Seriously, if you have a rat's nest in your hair in the morning (Keeping it real my friends) the wet brush is going to be your bestie. The super flexible bristles help detangle hair easily and painlessly. Love it! Well, my oldest loves is most since she pretty much kidnapped it from me. The Shine brush has a combo of the flexi bristles with boar's hair bristles that help disperse your hair's natural oils to give your mane that shiny lustrous look. Now, Rusk products are quick dry, humidity resistant hairsprays. The texture spray is perfect if you are like me and need to tease hair a bit to add body. The freezing spray is perfect for quick styling. It dries fast and both smell really nice unlike most chemical smelling sprays.

Hope you enjoyed the roundup this week! Remember, if you like what you see (including all my funny faces I tend to make when I talk...) please subscribe! Leave a comment if you want us to review other products or even have other suggestions! Thanks for your support!
