5 NATURAL HAIR CARE PRODUCTS YOU SHOULD BE USING

This is a sponsored post for Target. However, the words and opinions are completely my own! ­čÖé


 

Hey guys!┬áI’ve been on somewhat of a healthy hair kick (easing my way into it, anyway). I wanted to explore what healthy hair products are out there without spending too much, because I ain’t gonna lie,

Luckily, I’ve teamed up with Target to share some new all natural hair care products that are┬áfree of harmful chemicals and full of nutrient-rich, restorative and plant-based ingredients.

Here is my experience using Target’s new all natural hair care products for the first time! ­čÖé

The first two are SoapBox’s Bataua Fruit shampoo and conditioner.

These products are packed with fatty acids and amino acids (which helps your hair grow) to nourish your scalp and hair. Make sure to wait 3-5 minutes before rinsing your hair.

HERE’S THE COOL PART: With every bottle you buy, SoapBox will provide a month’s supply of clean water to a community in need! #SoapEqualsHope

Ummmmmmmm, whaaat?

The last three are from the Renpure line. No sodium chloride, sulfates, dyes, harsh salts, parabens, or gluten. GET OUTTA HERE, GLUTEN.

These products are mainly to repair and cleanse your hair, which means extra time in the shower. I’ve always been used to shampooing, conditioning and BAM. Done. Quick shower. However, I thiiiink not going the extra step to repair is┬áone of the reasons why my hair isn’t as healthy as it should be.Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 9.10.21 PM

The cleansing pudding requires running the product through your hair, starting from root to tip. Not in a shampooing motion. And to detangle, use a wide tooth comb (had to google what that was, don’t judge me).┬áReading this made me feel very anxious because I don’t think I’ve never FULLY detangled my hair, because, OUCH.

ANYWAY- I pushed through my childhood detangle nightmares induced by my abuelita, and did what had to be done because I’m a grown woman.

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 9.13.19 PMThe key ingredients in these products are coconut oil, shea butter, argan oil, and monol oil. Which all help to chill out the frizz, lock moisture in, and restore natural oils you may have lost from straightening your hair. *COUGH COUGH* Me…

After using these products I’ve definitely noticed my hair feels waaaay lighter and smells heavenly. But most importantly, ┬ájust knowing what was going into my hair made me feel a sense of control. Listen, I’m not trying to tell you how to live your life, but I think we can all benefit from using all natural products.

Your hair is sacred and should be treated like a QUEEEEEEEN. Just like you!

I hope I’ve given you some insight or even giggles. If I did,

NEUTROGENA® #NOMASPOROS challenge!

This a compensated post in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and NEUTROGENA┬«. Opinions and experiences with product are my OWN! <3


Hey guys! Took the Neutrogena #NoMasPoros(no more pores)challenge! I have to be honest, I’m one of those “low maintenance”(AKA LAZY) girls. seriously had to google search what pores were, because unlike Regina George, I never noticed them. 
Once I did, my reaction was like:


“Lemme just see what these ‘pores’ are all about.”


“Wait. ARE THOSE HOLES ON MY FACE.”


“Whatever. Who cares. I don’t care.”


“I CARE. OKAY?! THERE ARE HOLES ON MY FACEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. I AM A SPONGE FOR DIRTTTTTT” 
(BTW-Just got done with a Dawson’s Creek netflix binge. Sorry for the Dawson gifs.LOL)


So, yeah. I was pretty shocked. LUCKILY- there are AWESOME pore refining products. Like NEUTROGENA┬« PORE REFINING┬« products!






First, I used theNEUTROGENA┬« Pore Refining┬« Exfoliating Cleanser  and NEUTROGENA┬« Pore Refining┬« Daily Cleanser   to cleanse my face, and get rid of all that icky dead surface skin. 
The cool thing about these cleansers is that they even out your skin tone. 
Which is good if you have some discoloration from any acne scars!
(These cleansers won’t dry out your face, btw!)   

The NEUTROGENA┬« Pore Refining┬« Toner is another way to get rid of dead skin and even out your skin. I just used a napkin to dab it on my face. 
The NEW! NEUTROGENA┬« Pore Refining┬« Moisturizer (in-stores in August) is the product that’ll ATTACK your pores without clogging them! I applied it directly to my pore area.




Here are the results! (NO, I did NOT photoshop this) With anything, this will only work if you are consistent. I’m finally getting into the habit of practicing good skin care! And you should too!

Love, Maya
