The sun is shining, I am spending so much time by the beach and enjoying ice-cold fruity drinks- that's what summer is all about.
I love the sunshine and the fact that I can naturally let my hair down and embrace those curls.
Although the summer is my favorite time of the year - the one thing I don't like about the sun is how much I sweat, and I mostly sweat on my head. I go through twice the amount of shampoo I normally would but I think that is starting to damage my hair. This summer I was gonna look for something new - a new type of shampoo that could clean my hair without destroying it.
I was looking at different shampoos when I saw an advertisement about New Wash from Hairstory - a brand I had not heard about, but their website, ingredient transparency, and the way it cleans your hair without damaging your scalp made me want to give it a try.
I took the 23 question quiz which helped me find the right products for me, and how I could tailor them for my hair and bring out the best.
I decided to subscribe to their most popular product - New Wash - an easy, non-harmful, non-toxic way to cleanse my hair and scalp without damaging it. New Wash is a 2-in-one and replaces both your shampoo and conditioner. The founders put a lot of effort into developing the right formula that works on every type of hair (thick, thin, straight, or curly).
Their formula uses essential oils, natural ingredients that both cleanse and condition my hair. New Wash is sulfate-free, detergent-free and uses ingredients like Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, "Jojoba" seed oil, "Evening Primrose" oil, Sunflower seed oil, Rose oil and Keratin among many others. It took me few weeks to get used to Hairstory (each person's hair is different and takes longer to adjust to new hair products). I am so happy that I made the switch to Hairstory's New Wash, my scalp no longer feels dry and flakey. New Wash helps me keep my scalp moisturized and my hair feels longer and healthier.
A few weeks with Hairstory and my hair feels so different. I signed up for their refillable club, which allows me to get my New Wash delivered to my door. It is so much easier and saves me money. You can save 5-10% on their 20oz or 32oz pouches when you sign up and have your New Wash delivered to your door every 6, 8, or 10 weeks. My first order came in an aluminum bottle with a pump and from then I received them in refillable pouches. Plus, I got a free travel container, free shower container, and the shipping is free!
Once I saw everything New Wash did for my hair I started looking at their other products like the Powder, a dry shampoo that is the perfect refresh between washes. The Hair Balm is a leave-in conditioner that moisturizes and has a light hold, while the Dressed-Up Heat Protector helps with frizz and smoothing those pesky flyaways.
I love that I can naturally dry my hair with the sun and embrace my curls again. Hairstory has helped me change the way I look after my hair. It's summer and I am ready to let my hair down and soak in the sun.
