It’s been a minute since I talked haircare with you guys! While we were in the moving process my hair was in a bun or braid more days than I’d like to admit, but now that the weather has warmed up and I have some fun travels on my calendar I’ve made haircare a top priority.
Is it just or is EVERYONE raving about Colleen Rothschild products? I swear over the last year I’ve had soooo many friends switch to a Colleen Rothschild skincare routine. Whenever I ask for product recommendations from you guys? I get multiple recommendations for a Colleen Rothschild product. Clearly I’ve been living under a rock! PS when I was in Dallas I picked up a few CR skincare goodies that I’ve been testing– keep a lookout on Instagram story for my thoughts!
Alrighty so back to the point of today’s post… Did you know that Colleen Rothschild recently launched a hair care line? When I received the Colleen Rothschild Hair Care Essentials Set in the mail it was as if they knew that my hair was in need of some TLC. The $34 set includes a full-size conditioning mask, nourishing hair serum and a compact brush you can use in the shower to detangle/stimulate the scalp– basically all the essentials you need between shampooing and heat styling.
Since I have extensions and my own strands leans on the dry-side I really only wash my hair 1-2x a week (the other 5-6 days I wear a shower cap.) If I’m being honest, I hate doing it and feel incredibly lucky that I can get away with such a minimal routine. Because I don’t wash my hair everyday I’m very selective about the products I use in the shower. Basically if I’m going to put a mask or serum on my hair when it’s damp it HAS to be good because it’s going to be in my hair at least 3-4 days.
After hearing so much praise about CR skincare, I had high hopes for the hair care products and so far I could not be more obsessed with this set. My number struggle when post-showering is detangling my hair. Thanks to my extensions I have a lot of it and if I don’t do a good job conditioning it can very easily turn into a tangled lion’s mane. It’s not a good look and an absolute nightmare to comb out.
What I love so much about the Colleen Rothschild Quench & Shine Restorative Mask is that it’s a miracle worker at softening and detangling hair. After shampooing, I apply it as my conditioner and leave it on for 5 minutes while I shave and wash my body. The first time I used it and went to rinse I could not believe how easily I was able to brush through my hair with the shower comb. I was even to give myself a little scalp massage with the brush! I honestly thought I’d made a mistake and had accidentally left product in my hair…. It’s been a long time since I could easily run my fingers through my hair without drying and detangling it first, so I couldn’t believe the results I was experiencing immediately after rinsing. Who knew a conditioning mask and compact shower brush could work such wonders?
Colleen Rothschild Quench & Shine Restorative Mask Benefits:
+ softens hair
+ detangles even the most tangled manes
+ safe for all hair types
+ contains Kokum, Shea, Capuacu & Bacuri Butters for nourishment
+ and Argan + Moringa Oils to smooth split ends
+ improves elasticity
+ reduces frizz
After washing my hair I always use a serum or some type of smoothing cream, ideally one that tames frizz, hydrates dry strands and won’t leave my hair feeling greasy. It can be hard to find a product that does all of this and more, but leave it to Colleen Rothschild to figure it out. Just a few drops of the Smooth & Shine Hair Serum tackles frizziness while protecting, nourishing and strengthening hair. Once I’ve towel dried my hair, I take a few drops in the palm of my hair and run my fingers through my locks concentrating product mostly from mid-length to the ends.
My results from this mask and serum have been so good that I’ve actually been letting my hair air dry naturally and rocking my natural waves. Usually I struggle with frizz and have to smooth out the natural texture/crazy volume of my waves with a 1.5″ curling iron or flat iron, but my hair has just been looking so healthy and feel so soft that I haven’t felt a need to do any heat styling. I can hardly believe it myself!
In celebration of Colleen Rothschild launching haircare, they’re offered this 3-product set for just $34 ($48 value.) This price is baffling to me because I feel like I’ve had better results using these products than I’ve had with some of my high-end masks and serums, all of which costs upwards of $35+ each. It’s truly a steal and if you’re like me and only wash your hair a few times a week, these products are going to last F O R E V E R. I doubt I’ll be able to finish either one in less than six months!
