Arctic Fox Hair Color is AMAZING!

Hey! I haven’t written a review in quite some time, and I couldn’t have picked a better product to start again with!

If you’re on Instagram, chances are you’ve seen people showing off their bright, beautiful hair they created with Arctic Fox Hair Color. Of course, like everything I write about, the products are vegan and cruelty free!

Purple hair and I have had a longggg relationship. We go out, get sick of each other, and then start dating again. We’re pretty much soulmates. Purple Rain from Arctic Fox is my go-to shade. It is a deep, true purple shade, and best of all, it smells like grape!

I love these colors because you can dilute them with conditioner, and also leave them on for a few minutes for a hint of color. In the past, I would dilute the color and only leave on for less than 5 minutes to get the cutest lavender hue.

This time, I really went for it. I applied the color all over my hair, which is a light/medium ash blonde with highlights, and left it on for over an hour. I loved the results but wanted it to be even deeper, so I repeated the process again the next day, and couldn’t be happier!

My hair is a gorgeous purple shade and feels so healthy! This hair color, whether you’re vegan or not, is the best out there. With a bunch of vibrant shades to choose from to make your hair dreams come true, I highly, highly recommend Arctic Fox!

Have Crazy Curls? Try the SmartCurl Line from EVOLVh!

I have crazy curls. Curls so out of control that I often put them in a braid just so I didn’t need to deal with them (I’m busy saving animals, OK?!). No products really work for me… they weighed down my hair and made it look greasy and sad. I just wanted frizz free, bouncy curls! Is that too much to ask?

Well, until I found EVOLVh SmartCurl products, it was! They’re vegan, cruelty-free, organic, and really get the job done!

EVOLVh Love Your Curls Discovery Kit

Their Love Your Curls Discovery Kit comes with the SmartCurl Wash and Conditioner, which I absolutely adore! This duo gets your hair clean and conditioned without stripping your natural oils (curly hair is naturally dry) and provides moisture without making your hair look or feel greasy.

It also comes with the SmartStart Leave-in Conditioner which is the first product I tried from this brand. It smells amazingly fresh and helps to strengthen and protect your beautiful strands while fighting frizz. The Ultimate Styling Lotion helps to define your curls so they’re light as a feather and lookin’ healthy!

I highly recommend this kit to try out the line!

EVOLVh Wonderbalm

Last, but definitely not least, is the Wonderbalm, which is appropriately called “Magic for Curls.” I work this light, fragrance free serum into my towel-dried hair and just let it get to work! I don’t heat style my hair, and with this, I don’t need to! My curls looks soft, shiny, and healthy… what more could you ask for?

New curl products will be released soon, and I can’t wait! Have you tried EVOLVh yet?
