I must be on a hair kick especially on the heels of this post. There is something about the feeling of freshly washed and blown out hair that is putting a little spring in my step. Besides these tools, I am also reaching for a new-to-me hair care line, R+Co.
First a little about the line: the brand is a collective of professional artists. Each product is designed to reflect more than one viewpoint. The result is professional products that work to achieve a wide range of looks. While I am dying to try the whole line, I have only played with Gemstone Color Shampoo & Conditioner and Chiffon Styling Mousse.
I recently started having my hair professionally colored. A couple reasons: first, I was going grey. Second, I found someone I finally trust. And third, I wanted a more polished and professional look. But I am still using “training wheels” aka demi-permanent color. And this stuff only lasts 6-8 weeks. So I really treat my hair with kid gloves and that starts with color-safe shampoo and conditioner.
R+Co. Gemstone smells like the tropics. The shampoo has a great lather. And it works no matter what (faux) color your hair is. Just like the shampoo, the conditioner contains yummy ingredients like Hibiscus Extract (softens and protects), Pea Extract (preserves color), Rice Extract (smooths) and Golden Root Extract (protects).
Last but not least… I struggle with volume and hold. Mousse has become my friend. And the Chiffon Styling Mousse is lightweight, provides shine and somehow gives my fine strands some hold. I just apply to the roots of wet hair and style away.
