With Mending and Extending the hair, I mean mending the hair already in need of help and extend the hairstyle in the way to delay the hair wash. I have Morocconoil Mending Infusion and Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo which I have been using and thought to share with you guys. For me, I do use heat on my hair twice a week which makes me more concerned about the health of my hair, particularly dry and brittle ends. And to delay using heat on my hair, I like to use a dry shampoo.
Morocconoil Mending Infusion
Morocconoil Mending Infusion (CAD $37) is described as an advanced argan-oil infused lotion-serum that not only mends hair to provide a frictionless finish but also nourishes, conditions and helps to strengthen hair. Additionally, the ultra-lightweight formula provides long-lasting benefits that help prevent future damage over time, resulting in healthier-looking, touchably-soft and silky hair with each use.
The key ingredients include Argan Oil(help restore elasticity, smoothness, and manageability to hair while imparting brilliant shine), Galactoarabinan(it provides vital moisture and helps restore a healthy look to the hair), Baobab Extract(to improve elasticity and increase hair strength), Panthenol/Provitamin B5 (hair conditioning agent and moisturizer to enhance hair shine), Coconut Alkanes(provides a smooth feel and shine, while aiding in spreadability of the hair), and Hydrolyzed Quinoa(help restore hair’s strength).
I use it at the ends of my dry hair after washing or during the week. After using this, the hair feels moisturized and the split and brittle ends do not appear to be much noticeable. The consistency of the product is light cream like and it smells almost same like the Morrocconoil treatment which I reviewed here. It is not oily or does not makes the ends oily, just smooth and better version of the hair ends. I do feel my hair silky and soft after using this on the ends. Morocconoil Mending Infusion is available at Morocconoil official website and Sephora Canada.
Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo
Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo(CAD $39) is described to revives hair with naturally derived powders that absorb excess oil and impurities. It is suitable for all hair types. It calms the senses with an aroma with 25 pure flower and plant essences including certified organic lavender, petitgrain and ylang-ylang.
My scalp gets oily after a day or two after washing and I tend to use a dry shampoo to extend my hairstyle and delay the hair wash. I like the smell of this dry shampoo and it does what it is supposed to do, soaks up oil from scalp. It makes the hair silky and fresh. The only issue I have with this is the packaging of the product, there is no control over how much product you want out, and for me, it is always too much, so either I try to shake a bit over the scalp or just have it on the palm of my hand and then apply to the scalp. It is very fine powder and dissipates quickly without leaving the white cast. Other than that, the formula is good, smells really good and does not leave the white powder or white stuff in the hair. Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo is available at Aveda official website.
Overall, both these products have been a nice addition to my hair care routine. I would recommend both of these if you are looking to mend and extend your hair and hairstyle.
