I’ve decided that in 2019 I will test a hand full of products a month [ starting with challenges I encounter on the daily ] in hopes to find products that live up to their claims — and hopefully help you along the way!
SUM UP = G O L D
Thats correct, my friends! The answer to my thirsty scalp needs!
A little backstory— for those of you who have been following or who’ve known me for a while, know that with my pregnancy came extremely dry skin [ which obviously included my scalp ]. Once I began suffering with dry skin + scalp and doing research to find some sort of relief, I would constantly run across articles stating that you should “treat your scalp the same as your face”. Of course when I read this I’m thinking — “duh Jennifer… its an extension of your face, it deserves the same TLC”. So I tried it, micellar water, oils, masks…. you name it, I tried it. While it all made since in my mind and in the articles, it just wasn’t lining up. SOMETHING WAS MISSING!!!
Insert Kristin Ess’s brilliant mind. While yes, your scalp is an extension of your face – it also houses the root of your hair [ which has its’ own specific needs].
Scalp Purifying Micellar Shampoo — When I say my hair has NEVER felt so clean, it’s not an exaggeration! Honestly, while I truly love every product from this line, the kween could have just launched this ONE PRODUCT and my life would have been changed.
Weightless Hydration Daily Scalp + Hair Mask — Being that I have fine hair, it has always been difficult for me to find a hydrating mask/product that didn’t leave my hair a greasy mess. Well the Kristin Ess, of course killed the game and FINALLY a hydrating mask that I can use!!!!
*Note: I have found, through trial and error, that I cannot use this product every wash [ I should be embarrassed to admit, but I only wash my hair every 3-4 days]. I noticed that every other or every two washes are my sweet spots for a healthy, hydrated scalp.*
Scalp Detoxifying Bubble Mask — This product here is without a doubt my #2 of this collection! Its gentle enough for when my scalp is extra sensitive dryness + light enough to not weigh my hair down! A bonus, the fun “pop rocks” sensation – freaking SO FUN!
*This product out of the collection is the best [for my hair type] for removing any buildup from my scalp.*
Instant Exfoliating Scalp Scrub — Just like every other product in this collection, it’s a freaking winner! For me specifically, this is an every 2 weeks product. I love how I’m able to scrub any flakes away [oh be still my loving heart].
Anytime Anywhere Scalp + Hair Milk Oil — this milk oil is so soothing that I want to bathe in it! For me, depending on the weather [ + my hormones ] my scalp get so uncomfortable – but this milk oil has given me relief. I have used it after a shower, on wet hair – on my scalp when my hair was dry – on my ends + I’m still finding ways to use this versatile product!
*Specifically for my fine hair, I have to use the smallest drops and distribute with my fingers throughout my scalp. So beware that if you have fine hair like me, you DO NOT want to use a full dropper!
An added bonus, this packaging IS EVERYTHING!!!!
The Roundup —
These products truly live up to their hype, plus they are super affordable!
