I was beyond thrilled to get to try out this line! I LOVE when companies make trial/sample sized products so you don’t end up wasting handfuls of money on things that don’t work for you.
So, if you didn’t know, I have blonde curly hair that reaches midway down my back. It is highlighted, dry and frizzy, but it is easily straightened, curled, and controlled with products. I prefer to keep my hair natural and choose not to use heat styling very often.
The UltraShine Moisture Shampoo is “ideal for all hair types.” It gently cleanses while seaweed extract and fatty acids nourish and fortify your strands. The scent reminds me of baby shampoo and the lather most certainly washes away any build-up. The instructions recommend washing your hair twice, which I only do if my hair is particularly dirty or if I used too much product that day.
The UltraShine Moisture Conditioner has a fragrance that is similar to the UltraShine Moisture Shampoo, but it also has a baby powder-like scent. This conditioner is thick, as in it will not drip from your hand if you turn it upside down, but it is not heavy. I massaged it into my hair and let it sit for several minutes for more “intensive results.” It does a wonderful job detangling my wild curls and provides enough moisture for my thirsty locks without weighing it down.
The SmartVolume Leave-in Conditioner is to be used on clean, towel-dried hair (10 – 12 pumps from roots to ends). The scent of this spray is my favorite in the set. It is light, fruity, and floral. Rice bran guards against heat and the sun, bergamot detangles and fights flyaways, and raw lecithin strengthens strands. I really love this stuff!
The TotalControl Styling Creme is a mix of a conditioner and gel. For “smooth ringlets, apply to damp hair, use fingers to shape curls, and let air dry.” This styling creme was perfect for my hair. I want smooth, bouncy curls without heavy products weighing them down. This product fought my frizz (undoubtedly with all its might) and helped my curls keep their shape.
The Bottom Line
Everyone wants beautiful hair. To me, it is impossible to achieve “beauty” if the products you use are tested on animals or contain animal products. Animal testing is cruel, ineffective and unnecessary. I am so thankful for brands like EVOLVh that make vegan and cruely-free products that actually work! These products work together PERFECTLY, but also do well when used on their own. I can say that without a doubt, this set increased the volume and overall health of my hair. Since these products are perfect for traveling, I will be bringing the entire set along with me on my L.A. food tour in a few weeks (stay tuned for that!). This company also has products made for curly hair, which I fully intend on trying out! Give these products a try, and let me know how they work for you!
Thank you, EVOLVh, for providing me with products to review!
