TREATMENT: Detox your hair back to life

 olaplexolaplex2olaplex3Before / After

This is taken after the hair got trimmed and styled. Look at how much lighter the shade is!
Apparently I had a lot of dirt in my hair that made my blonde hair darker. Amazing!

Have you ever wondered if you hair ever gets fully cleaned?
You use a ton of different products during a whole lifetime, you swim in the ocean and swimmingpools, you work out, visit different countries or maybe you have an everyday life in a pollution high city.
Your hair gets so filled with dirt, minerals, accumulations and pollution that sometimes you feel like your haircolor fades away, your hair feels heavier and more greasy – or that all the styling and treatments doesn’t pay off.

I went to Con Amor in Ringsted with the Olaplex team to get a detox to my hair – so I could feel like it was brand new again.
The team is so amazing. Marianne who fixed my hair real good, is an angel when it comes to your hair. She’s one of the most talented hairdressers and stylist that we have in Denmark. She really know her way around any kind of hair.

THE CALIFONICATION TREATMENT

The treatment is a mix between Olaplex and Malibu C. It’s a unique way to detox your hair and create the healthiest looking hair for a long time. It’s based on vitamin C and antioxidants, which will clean your hair from dirt, oils and accumulations. In that way, your hair can get back to normal – like a fresh breath of air .. and suddenly your hair feels light as a feather, the smoothness is back and you got a much healthier looking hair.

STEP 1.
My hair got washed with the Un-Do-Goo Shampoo from Malibu C, it cleans my hair from dirt and accumulations.

STEP 2.
A gel called Crystal Gel gets carefully added to my hair in sections. This gel improves the quality of my future chemical treatment – which will also save time and minimizes treatments to be repeated, because it makes them last longer. The gel removes minerals, metals, nicotine and other color-blocking accumulations that can feel heavy on the hair.
I was sitting under the heat with the gel in my hair for about 45 minuts.

STEP 3.
My hair got washed through with the Un-Do-Goo Shampoo from Malibu C one more time.

STEP 4.
Now to the first part of the Olaplex treatment. I get the Olaplex treatment in my hair, during a 5. minut session and after that it sits for another 5 minuts.

STEP 5.
Three different treatments from Malibu C called Rehydr8, Rehabiliti8 and Illumin8 gets mixed with the second Olaplex treatment and sits in my hair for about 10 minuts.  Step 6.
My hair gets washed with the Blonde serie from Malibu C , blowdried, trimmed and styled.

After my treatment I’ve never had this many compliments for my hair. It has truly been amazing!
My hair feels brand new – like I got to start fresh.
My hair is super soft, specially when I use my Olaplex treatment for home once a week. But most amazing off all is that my hair is super healthy and vibrant again. Over a month after and I see and feel the absolut same result as when I left the salon.

NOW I USE

Un-Do-Goo Shampoo, Malibu C, 110 DKK HERE

Deeply cleans your hair, gets rid of leftovers from stylingproducts and gives back the smoothness and shine.

Blondes Shampoo & Conditioner, Malibu C, 400 DKK  HERE

Protects my hair against pollution and envirommental factors. It’s the most perfect shampoo for blonde hair – it doesn’t color it purple, it simply just gives it the perfekt light shade with no yellows!

Sorry for the stoned and sweaty face ….

So, big news! Some of you may know the Dafni Hair Straightening Brush, the rest of you maybe not.
The Dafni Brush is a brush that can straighten your hair with heat. It’s sounds crazy, I know. But it actually works.

… And now it comes in a smaller size, because the Dafni Go just launched last week!

I love the smaller version, because it’s easier for me to use in my Scandinavian hair.
I won’t write too much about it, instead I’ll let you watch the video, where I had the honor to meet the founder of Dafni, Sharon Rabi. We had a good morning playing with her hairtools – she’s such a sweetheart!

WHY I LOVE THIS?

It’s faster than straightening your hair with a straightening iron.
Your hair doesn’t become flat and boring.
You keep your volume in your hair.
You don’t break or damage the hair with too much heat.
You can make waves with it.

Hope you’ll enjoy the video – and please subscribe!

TREATMENT: Wella Fusion

After this treatment, my hair felt super healthy, silky smooth and had the most beautiful shine. It really made my hair look and feel like silk!

Wella just launched this treatment, called Fusion. It’s an intensive repair-system for your hair, that’s gonna give the hair the opportunity to become the best version.The treatment is for severely damaged and over stylet hair, so the hair can be woken back into life, to give it health, shine and a stronger feel.

The treatments is made of amino acids, that can go deeper into the hair fibers so the hair gets stronger and have less hairbreakage.

THE TREATMENT

It’s a 20 minutes treatment, made in the salon of your choosing. There are 3 steps in the treatments – and every step is so relaxing and feels luxurious!

STEP 1: Your hair gets washed by their Intense Repair Shampoo, which has the most amazing smell ever! It’s a mix of summer flowers and clean laundry – but without being a heavy scent. It’s a delicate shampoo that repairs damaged hair and leaves it super creamy, clean and light.

STEP 2: Now the important step starts. This is the Fusion Amino Refiller, which is a clear fluid that goes all the way into the hair fibers and smooths out all the breakage in your hair. Every piece of your hair gets soaked in the fluid and sits in your hair under a heat-helmet for about 15 minutes.

STEP 3: After washing the refiller out, the Intense Repair Mask can be used in the hair for 5 minutes or just the Intense Repair Conditioner, depending how damaged your hair is.

After a good blowdry your hair feels like new. It’s super light, smooth like silk and has the most amazing shine. I really love this treatment!
It’s a few days after my treatment and I’ve continued to use the products at home. My hair still feels super soft and silky – and I really can’t get enough of this amazing scent!

I sent my hair to rehab!

livingprooflivingproof2livingproof3

It can feel really good to start over and have a fresh new start with a lot of different things – the same when it comes to your hair.
Maybe you?re the kind of person who uses the same shampoo everyday and feel like you need a change and something new to happen! We often have the same routines when it comes to beauty, which can make our hair and face feel boring to look at, because we?re so used to looking at the same thing.

When using a lot of different products for washing, caring and styling, your hair can need a break. We wash it, style it, bike with it and does a lot of harsh things to it everyday and at some point the hair can?t grow any longer or get any healthier.

As a beauty junkie, I try a lot of different stuff with my hair. Actually, I?m really not nice to it. If my hair was my friend, I think it would have left me long time ago.
Therefore I decided to send my hair to rehab ? which is quiet mean of me, since it?s my fault that my hair has lost its shine, vitality and health.

So I got this challenge, about only using Living Proof products in my hair for at least 14. Washes ? or until I had emptied the bottles. I chose to go all in and use the products until the last drop of shampoo was used.

? and WOW what a difference it made in my hair.

Normally my hair is super dry and often damaged from the environment or bleach. I have super fine Scandinavian hair, so it tend to break easily and feel unhealthy at times.
I started using the restore line from Living Proof ? and normally I?m super skeptical about hair products. Specially because there are SO many out there and they always promise you everything and nothing. It?s so rarely that I find products that actually work ? and not just superficial, but also changes how your hair feels and looks for good!

I?m not joking when I say that these products are some of the best products I?ve ever tried.

It?s the first time ever, that I don?t need to use a styling iron of some sort, to make my hair look beautiful after a good blowdry. Just from shampoo and conditioning itself, I saw a huge change in my hair from my very first use. And after that I used 1-2 products from Living Proof, to make it even more smooth or for styling.

I?ve now used the products for 1,5 months ? and last night I ran out. A little sad actually.
But the good thing is, that now I?m aloud to try some of their other products, now that my hair has been in rehab.
It?s like starting on a fresh. My hair feels super healthy and SUPER strong ? so I don?t feel bad when I style it, try out new products or styling tools. Because the hair is healthy and ready to whatever comes at it.

What is so different about Living Proof products?
Well, the difference from Living Proof to other products is, that they use science. It sounds super simple, but actually it makes a lot of sense. Most important, they discovered a molecule OFPMA, that gives your hair a delicate, thin and invisible protection shield around each hair. This little shield protects your hair against humidity, it keeps dirt away ? so your hair stays clean longer and it gives your hair a lot of strength and shine to make it healthier.

Normally I have to wash my hair every day ? or every other. But after using this shampoo and conditioner it would stay clean for 3 whole days and still look fresh!

I used:

Restore Shampoo & Conditioner
A gentle shampoo for dry, damaged hair that when used as part of the Restore System helps hair behave like it was not damaged at all. It helped my dry, damaged hair appear visibly healthier. It instantly restores damaged hair cuticles so they act more like new and restores the moisture levels.
Shampoo, 200 DKK HERE
Conditioner, 200 DKK HERE

Restore Instant Repair
It?s a corrective leave-in that is infused with silk proteins, which made my hair soft, silky and strong. It transforms hair to look, act and feel like it was not damaged at all. I could really see a difference with this, it helps to prevent up to 93% of new split ends typically caused by styling and leaves your hair 15x stronger after just one use!
Leave-In, 250 DKK HERE

Restore Mask Treatment
This is a deeply conditioning treatment that repairs dry, damaged hair by nourishing each strand, leaving your hair visibly healthier, stronger and shinier. My hair felt so strong and was super shining after using this. I use it 2 times a week ? and sometimes I sleep with it over night.
Hair Mask, 250 DKK HERE

No Frizz Nourishing Oil
Oils can be your best friend when it comes to frizzy hair! This is fast-absorbing oil that nourishes even the coarsest hair. This nourishing oil blend was specifically formulated to mimic hair?s natural oil composition, providing coarse hair breakthrough frizz protection for smooth, shiny, healthy- and hydrated-feeling hair. Even my worst split ends looked smooth after using this. But be careful ? you don?t need a lot of this!
Hair Oil, 250 DKK HERE

*They?re all silicone-free!

It might seem like a lot of products to invest in. But I chose to go all in. You can try out the shampoo and conditioner ? but it?s super important that you don?t mix any other products while using these. Remember, you send your hair to rehab, so try to stay with only these products for a while.

Let me know what you think!
… and sorry for the bad haircolor – I’m getting that fixed tomorrow! Haha!
