Right now, my shower currently houses about six different kinds of shampoo and conditioner. I guess you could say that I care about the health of my locks and like being able to flip my hair with a bit of confidence. My attempts at trying to get celeb-quality hair are high on the number scale—believe me, it's true—but the effects of water quality on my hair never even crossed by beauty-buzzing, celeb-driven mind.
Turns out, it can make a big difference. Malibu C Educator Nicole Emiliani says that "hard water," with all its chemicals and minerals, is actually is a huge cause of hair damage. Woah! Nicole explained that these unwelcome substances stick to your hair, and, well, do some poor work. So what's the water like in Hollywood, we wonder?
So, to stop all these madness, I got the Hard Water Wellness Mini Malibu C Makeover and was giddy over the results. My hair felt light, wasn't hard to toss around, and stayed in place.
"These silent assassins can often go unnoticed, because you can't see them, but over time they build up on the hair, creating a hard, mineral rock wall that resides on the top of your tresses and causes hair to feel dry and rough and look lackluster, discolored and weighed-down," says Nicole.
Using warm water, Nicole washed my hair with the Hard Water Wellness Shampoo. It smelled really delicious and, like a lot of shampoo, wasn't a super heavy serum. And for those of you with a green thumb, get ready to be super pumped. Everything is 100 percent vegan and sulfate free.
Now here's the two-step treatment!
1. After rinsing, it was time for the hard water treatment to get to business. Nicole added in the packet of Hard Water Wellness Treatment. Let it sit for a few minutes and then rinsed it out. The treatment is good to use about once a week.
2. She then added in the Miracle Repair packet. It is designed to give repair hair and give it a bounce.
Confused that it's so simple and only a two-step process? Well get this. After the treatment was rinsed out, Nicole dried my hair and didn't use any styling products. Why? Because it didn't need it! The $28 kit is something that I totally suggest. Cheers to pretty hair!
