How to Get Your Best Second Day Hair for Brunch with Herbal Essences
I can't be the only person who lets my hair go a second day when I head to brunch! I think the sheer fact that it's the weekend, I just get a little bit on the lazier side. But I never feel bad about it because I always turn to one of my all time favorite haircare lines to make sure my hair not only looks and feels fresh, but works to get my hair the healthiest it can possibly be: Herbal Essences!
But now, Herbal Essences has a new collection that I am completely obsessed with called bio:renew, a blend of signature natural ingredients that help revive dull, lifeless hair with every wash. No nasty colorants, paragons or gluten, either! I am all about incorporating natural elements into really everything I do in life, so I am really behind this. It's my kind of haircare!
The core building block of bio:renew is the antioxidant Histidine. Similar to how a superfood works in the body, bio:renew purifies and protects hair from the inside out from trapping, neutralizing and removing the build-up of free radicals that wreak havoc on hair caused by every day factors such as pollution, coloring, sun exposure and even water. Sooo... no freaky chemicals or anything to I need to be worried about? Not even the slightest.
My go-to to bring my second day hair back to its prime for brunch is Herbal Essences bio:renew Cucumber and Green Tea Dry Shampoo!
Herbal Essences Cucumber and Green Tea Dry Shampoo is crafted with a blend of essential antioxidants, aloe and sea kelp, designed to help purify and protect against impurities. When I tell you this dry shampoo smells AMAZING - so incredibly fresh and I love that there are antioxidants infused in here. It makes me feel even better about using it.
My hair naturally gets visibly oily if I don't wash for a day so I am always depending on this dry shampoo to give me that boost of volume and freshen up my hair. There's no excess residue which I loooove especially since I do have darker hair and I always struggle with that left over powder look that blondes usually don't have to worry about! The dry shampoo's natural tapioca instantly absorbs oil, lifting my texture and boosting its refreshing scent. A total hair makeover in just a few seconds. Doesn't get better!
It's the perfect in-between-washes fix and makes my hair look as clean as it would if I had wash it - it comes in handy for all those hours of photo taking at brunch too!
Now, AFTER brunch - that's a different story! By the end of the day, despite knowing that my hair feels and looks fresh, I know I have got to give it a nice wash. Especially if brunching consisted of sitting outside, in this California heat anybody knows that at the end of the day, washing is essential. I continue with Herbal Essences of course.
My favorite is the bio:renew White Strawberry & Sweet Mint Shampoo and Conditioner. Mmmm does this smell delightful. The collection is infused with crisp white strawberry, delicate jasmine, and invigorating mint. It quenches dry, thirsty hair with deeply nourishing ingredients. The shampoo actually contains a mild, silicone-free formula that removes dirt and oil for a low lather cleanse that leaves my hair as vibrant as ever.
The conditioner contains a low level of silicones for a mild formula that delivers benefits for voluminous hair - aka, it brings my hair back to life! I personally have been using Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner for so many years and prefer it over most because it actually leaves my hair soft with a deep clean. With the new bio:renew line, it's amplified! For some reason I always feel like my hair looses its smooth-ness pretty fast but using the bio:renew shampoo and conditioner always keeps it in check. I go through bottles so quick because I love it too much!
From bedhead to brunch, and brunch to beautifully refreshed and rejuvenated hair, I can totally depend on Herbal Essences to bring my locks looking as smooth and fresh as ever.
