We are nearing the end of summer, but not the end of summer weather here in Austin. We will get to enjoy sun and 90 degrees well into October. When the temps are up we tend to spend tons of time in that pool, river, and lake as well as putting our hair up in braids and ponytails. All great things, but they can have damaging effects on our hair. Well, don’t fret my pet! We at Shag have discovered the Dream Team of summer hair repair! These products are totally amazing on their own, but when used together they can work miracles- restoring lustre and repairing the damage your summer fun may have caused.
REPAIR.ME by Kevin.Murphy
REPAIR.ME is a 3 party system that uses naturally derived superfood plant proteins and fruit enzymes. While traditionally protein products have left a residue on the hair causing it to feel stiff, Kevin Murphy has figured out a way to get the proteins encapsulated into the fruit enzymes that keeps them wobbly and soft. By keeping the proteins malleable they are able to fit directly into the damage like a key into a lock. The first step is the REPAIR.ME wash which contains nettle and bamboo extracts in addition to the proteins to reconstruct and strengthen damaged hair. Next step is the REPAIR.ME rinse which uses papaya and pineapple (smelling absolutely delicious!) enzymes which keep the proteins soft and supple producing a reflective shine. RE.STORE is the last step in the REPAIR.ME system. It is a concentrated foam free cleansing treatment that replaces your wash and rinse on the days of use. HOW IT WORKS: Monday & Tuesday use your wash and rinse. Wednesday use restore as your cleansing treatment, but also as a shot in the arm, power punch of protein.
MILK by Reverie
Rounding out our Dream Team is MILK by Reverie. MILK is described an anti-frizz leave-in nourishing treatment. It is handcrafted in California using the finest botanical and sustainable ingredients. It is a lightweight formula that is infused with over 16 essential oils that leave hair smooth, silyk, and shiny. Not to mention how absolutely delicious it smells! Consider it a superfood for your hair and scalp. Now the truth is, this product is much more than a leave-in conditioner and has become a cult favorite for many of our customers. Definitely use it as recommended- on damp hair prior to blowdrying. But also use it to protect your hair before hitting the pool or lake. Rub a few drops between your hands to smooth flyaways and as a styling cream. Not only will your hair smell delish, you are literally feeding it superfood and over the weeks will notice a big difference in the improvement in damage and texture.
Both REPAIR.ME by Kevin.Murphy and MILK by Reverie are great products in their own right and you will see improvements in your hair when you use them seperately. But you have to believe us when we tell you that using them together is the super power dream team your hair needs to get through the summer, or after. Damage will be repaired. Texture will improve. Shine will be restored. You’re welcome. 🙂
