Hello my snowflakes! First, I wanted to apologize for my lack of posting and social interaction on here. The last couple weeks of this semester had me drowning in school work, study sessions and finals, BUT yesterday was my last final so I have officially completed my first semester of junior year! Whoop whoop! Now normally around the middle of the month, I post a monthly favorites, HOWEVER this month I had the privilege of receiving a complimentary VoxBox from Influenster for testing purposes! How exciting?! As I always say, free stuff is my favorite kind of stuff.
The first VoxBox I received was filled with products from Redken. I personally LOVE Redken products and was more than excited to see what I received.
My hair has had a lot of ups and downs, all thanks to the “wonderful” idea of bleaching my hair all by myself. I have worked hard to get my hair to where it is now and that healing process alone, along with chopping my hair off and letting it regrow has taken well over two years. However, Redken products such as their Extreme Strengthening Shampoo, Extreme Strengthening Conditioner and Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-In Treatment have helped my hair to get to the level of healthy I have desired for so long. With that being said, the excitement I had to try some other products of theirs was through the roof!
Color Extend Blondage Purple Shampoo
The first product I received is a purple shampoo designed to strengthen, brighten and reduce that pesky brass color we blondes try our hardest to avoid. My first impression of this shampoo was how pretty the bright purple color was and how amazing the scent of the shampoo was! I was able to build up a nice lather while washing and afterwards, I let the shampoo sit in my hair for about 2 minutes before rinsing.
My only downside for this shampoo would have to be the stain it leaves in your shower and on your hands, although after washing my hands with warm water and soap, I was able to get the purple stain off my hands. For the quality of the product and the benefits that come with, I am perfectly content having purple hands and a purple shower!
You can find this product here for $20.00.
Color Extend Blondage Conditioner
The conditioner, similarly to the shampoo, had an amazing scent and was also purple in color but a much lighter purple. This was a very thick and creamy conditioner (which I love). I left the conditioner in for about 5 minutes and then washed out.
My only downside for the conditioner is that it did not de-tangle my hair whatsoever.
Overall, I did enjoy it and would purchase again. If you are interested in purchasing, you can do that here for $20.00.
Extreme CAT Anti-Damage Protein Rinse-off Treatment
This product is a rinse-off treatment. I decided to use mine right after showering and prior to putting conditioner on my hair. I sprayed it throughout my hair and made sure I soaked the tips of my hair, then I let it sit for about 3-5 minutes and rinsed it out.
My only downside with this product is the spray bottle itself is very user-unfriendly and I struggled with trying to spread the product throughout my hair by myself.
Despite the downside, even after one use I noticed my hair felt stronger and less hair fell out while brushing it. You can find this product here for $19.00.
I do plan on repurchasing all three of these items again and I would definitely recommend them to my blonde ladies looking to add some strength to their damaged hair and get rid of that brassy tone!
