These past couple of weeks have had me spread really thin, and it’ll stay that way for a couple weeks more. I’ve been really bogged down with huge assignments and midterms at school, important projects at work, and of course keeping up with you all here. It’s going to be pretty hectic until spring break, which I’m very much looking forward to. All the craziness leaves me little time for luxuries, though, like going through extravagant beauty routines in the morning.
One part of my routine that has been getting overlooked lately is my hair. Even with it at a shorter length, styling it in the morning can be a coin toss because it’s up in the air whether it’s going to want to cooperate or not. When it’s freshly washed, it can be hard to hold a style— but who wants to load up the products right after cleansing? Trusting it to set naturally shaped and coiffed without effort is hit and miss… when it happens, it’s awesome, and when it doesn’t, I start taking on a Bellatrix Lestrange look.
So upon discovering the Suave® Sea Mineral Infusion Moisturizing Buoyant Body Shampoo & Conditioner system, I was hoping it’d offer the balance I need in my life. The claims: offering 24-hour body PLUS moisture, while gently cleansing without the use of silicones. Hmm… moisture and texture? Worth a shot! Even though it’s targeted for normal to fine hair, I thought it could help give my thick hair the texture it needs to style effortlessly.
I will say that it was a little jarring to have touchable texture straight out of the shower. Yet, my hair did feel clean, moisturized, and looked healthy after using the shampoo and conditioner. What’s more is that once my hair dried, it set in really pretty, full and tousled waves without having to do literally anything. I had uniform volume without using extra products— I just scrunched while damp, and that’s what came out.
Luckily, I already have thick hair, but for those who need a little extra help, there is also a Suave® Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray in the line. Although, I got a ton of texture with just the shampoo and conditioner alone. This also made it easier to style later in the day when I threw my hair into a french braid for dinner, since it gave it more grip… something that can be hard to pull off so soon after a shower without the help of dry shampoo. I love that I can get so much body into my hair without suffocating my strands in product. While they might not turn into my go-to shampoo and conditioner, if I know that I’m going to be keeping my hair au natural during the week without much time to style, I’ll be reaching for these! If you have thinner hair, these might just become your best friends.
Aside from hair, sea minerals are also known to be beneficial for the skin, and I’ve been using the Suave® Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Body Lotion to take care of the rest of my body. Infused with minerals from the Dead Sea, it smells ahhmazingly refreshing with a musky sea scent, and has been keeping my skin in check during the transition from winter to spring, now that I can finally break out the sundresses here in Los Angeles. My skin looks and feels great for days when using this.
Seriously throwing a big THANKS in Suave®’s direction for saving me time on the body front— hair and skin wise!
