Review: Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner

Let me start by saying how much I love this line! After receiving both the shampoo and conditioner in my June Birchbox, I simply fell in love. Most samples don’t blow me away or give me much to try, this month it was different.

Right now I’m using both products on days my hair has been exposed to the salt water from the beach or the chlorine from a pool. It really does a great job of restoring my hair’s moisture and its gentle enough for my color-treated hair. It’s definitely one of those products that after the first time you use it, especially the conditioner, you want more, immediately!

Review: KMS California Hot Flex Spray

Review: KMS California Hot Flex Spray

As you know I love reviewing products from my Birchbox. In my August box I received Hot Flex Spray by KMS California. I wasn’t really sure what to do with it. At first glance it looks like hairspray and as some of you know my hair is too short for that. Well after doing some inspecting on the back of the bottle I figured out what it is used for!

So that being said, Hot Flex Spray does two things. The first being it protects hair from heat and styling damage, so your hair dryers and flat irons. The second thing it does is act as a hair spray in the fact that it holds style. So for example, my hair is a “bob” cut, so each and every morning I work on making my hair “go under”. Well with this spray all I have to do is spray the sections and use my brush when blow drying my hair. The result is FANTASTIC.  In fact I seem to be blowing through this sample size and I will have to buy more very soon.

After I fell in love with this product I did some digging around and discovered a whole line of products from KMS that I NEED to try next. They make everything from color protecting, anti-frizz, shine products, and much more.

Each month in my Birchbox I am supplied with a card that tells me how much I can purchase the full-sized product for, well I’ll let you in on a little secret, Amazon has this product for only $12! I don’t work for Birchbox so I don’t feel compelled to purchase from them when it is cheaper elsewhere. I really hope you will try out this product and let me know what you think, I love it!
