Over 50? I Review 3 New Hair Care Products You Can't Live Without

by Kelli Parisian June 12, 2018

 

I'm in the Skincare business, not the Haircare business, BUT, when I find something that works on my own fine, wimpy hair, I shout it from the rooftops!* These are my new go-to products.

Even if you don't have wimpy hair, most of us over 50 would like more shine, less frizz, and more volume in certain areas.

I've recently found products that address all three of these hair issues. ArtNaturals Argan Oil Shampoo, REDAVID Orchid Oil Dual Therapy, and Unite Expanda Dust. 

Shampoo -

ArtNaturals - Argan Oil Shampoo

Argan Oil Shampoo, restorative formula, review

This shampoo has been around awhile but new to me. It's sulfate free and contains Argan Oil. I look for sulfate free shampoo because it helps color-treated hair not to fade. The Restorative Formula is a blend of botanical extracts, vitamins, and keratin, to reinvigorate, smooth, and super-shine hair.

Why I avoid all products with sulfates - 

Sulfates are detergents to produce lather. Detergents/Sulfates strip the body or hair of natural oils and can leave hair feeling dry.  They can increase the occurrence of acne (in face cleansers). For those of us with allergies, eczema, and sensitive skin, avoiding sulfates is a must. 

Note: Parisian's Pure Indulgence Face Cleansers, Creme Fraiche Facial Cleanser, and our Anti-Blemish Cleanser are both Sulfate-Free, non-irritating, and well tolerated by those with sensitive skin. 

 

Shampoo Application: 

I notice the first application of Argan shampoo produces no lather for me at all. It's probably due to the variety of products I use regularly on my hair (Unite, Orchid Oil, Hairspray). The second application produces a small amount of lather. I find I rarely have to use conditioner with the Argan shampoo. I love that it gives my hair shine and doesn't fade my hair color.

Hair Treatments:

 

REDAVID Orchid Oil Dual Therapy

Redavid Dual Therapy Orchid Oil, shine, frizzy, best treatment for color processed hair

Dual Therapy is a two-part system for heavily processed or curly hair.  I've never had a product make my hair so shiny. Typically, I color my hair every 5 weeks. By week 3-4 my hair looks dull and ready for color again. No More...My hair stays shiny every single day! It also takes the frizz away, without weighing my hair down.

Application: 

It's to be used on towel dried hair. A little goes a long way. Two tiny pumps - it's a dual pump so you are getting two products at once, is plenty. Avoid the "If a little is good, a lot will be better," thinking. Seriously. 

I dry my hair and notice the shine right away. It doesn't make my hair limp like so many treatments. It holds a curl better too.

It's pricey, but for me worth it. It retails for around $50. I believe it should last me at least 3 months, using it 3 times/week.

 

Unite Expanda Dust -

Unite Expanda Dust, Volumizing, thin, fine, hair

 

I call this miracle dust! My stylist (thanks Linda Clark!) first used it on my hair to inject some oomph to my fine locks. 

What is it?  

This is an ultra fine powder made of some unusual ingredients:

  • Kaolin: Adds texture and hold
  • Potato Starch: Thickens and adds volume
  • Tapioca Starch: Thickens and adds volume
  • Corn Starch: Adds body and hold
  • Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice: Adds moisture and soothes hair and scalp

Application:

It is used on dry hair (it's not a dry shampoo)  for instant volume–and it works! Magic, real magic I swear! Lightly (key word here) sprinkle into roots for mega volume and you can as an option sprinkle throughout for added texture–something we flatheads don’t normally have.

It's tricky to describe exactly how to use this product so watch for a video attachment I'm making and sharing here, and on Facebook, demonstrating exactly how to use.

 Which products are your go-to hair products? Why?
