Splurge to Get Your Best Hair This Summer


Kerastase Aura Botanica Concentre Essential

Summer can be a beast on your hair. Between the humidity, the sun's strong rays as well as sweat and chlorine, your hair takes a beating and a half. With workouts and  three sewn -in tracks of extensions, I've had to be more aware of what products I can place use on my hair.  With extensions, you have to treat them like your own hair but, you have to be careful of products that are heavy as well as creating any harm to the hair braided under your extensions. For example, all those heavier oils like jojoba, avocado and coconut I used with wild abandon pre and post shampoo, I can't use on a daily basis. So, what is a moisture loving girl to do to keep her hair shiny and bouncy.

My answer, is Kerastase Aura Botanica Concentre Essential, yeah it's a mouthful and a handful of bucks  priced at $58 but, it is a rare hair product that is both light enough to use on a regular basis as well as heavy enough to also use as a deep conditioner. I raved about the product on my Gym Bag Beauty Essentials segment on  Good Day DC.  The natural hair oil blend if composed of   99% naturally derived ingredients such as  of avocado, argan, jojoba and Samoan coconut oil along with  rosemary extract. It is a multi-purpose product that  can be used as a  pre-shampoo, you can add a few drops to your deep conditioner, one drop for styling and also, I don't recommend, you can use it as a body oil, minus the face.



Kerastase Aura Botanica Concentre Essential has no silicons and no parabens and can be used on chemically processed hair as well as natural hair. The outcome from using the product is soft hair from root to ends, a natural radiant shine as well  as bounce. Your hair will be healthier and stronger in one use. It's perfect to us on you hair and at the beach or under a swim cap. One of the best ideas is pre-workout like spin or bootcamp, which sort of works as going under a dryer followed by post workout shampoo.  This product isn't cheap, it's $58 but, it's naturally derived, a lot of product goes a long way and the stunning results are well worth it.
