There’s only one thing that I can think of that makes éprouvage a difficult brand to use – I don’t know how to pronounce its name! Other than that I like everything about it. As a woman with hopefully straight hair I’m looking for a haircare line that is smoothing, helps with color treated hair, fights the frizz, and is working to prevent breakage. éprouvage Smoothing Shampoo and Smoothing Conditioner has fulfilled those promises.
éprouvage is an anti-aging haircare line with different categories of hair products. You can buy their Fortifying line, their Gentle Volume line, their Reparative line, and more at Ulta. Products are reasonably priced at about $15 and $16 for 8.45 fl oz of shampoo and conditioner.
Newly released is the Smoothing line which is right up my alley. éprouvage uses “Progressive Plant Cells” in their formulas.
Healthy hair and scalp start at the cellular level. The powerful actives in our products work at the scalp to create the ideal environment to produce stronger, healthier hair. Highly concentrated antioxidant molecules neutralize free radicals and reduce the harmful effects of oxidative stress involved in aging. A proprietary peptide blend helps create thicker, fuller-looking hair.
éprouvage Smoothing Shampoo is subtitled For Moisturizing & Taming. It’s a color safe formula that is free of sulfates, parabens, and gluten. It’s a gentle cream that lathers lightly. The shampoo itself almost looks luminous.
One thing that attracted me to éprouvage Smoothing products is that are good for the scalp. This winter often left me with a flaky scalp that was extremely annoying. When I’m using the éprouvage Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner, I massage them into my scalp. I’ve seen results from that since I’m not noticing flakes. My scalp is benefiting as much as my hair.
éprouvage Smoothing Conditioner is the companion piece that is especially good for nourishing hydration.
- Restores hydration and nourishes dry, unruly hair.
- Gently detangles without weighing hair down.
- Replenishes moisture and improves manageability.
These have a light floral fragrance which I find soothing. It’s not a strong fragrance and I don’t notice it after my hair is dry. They make my hair more manageable and keep it straighter longer.
With April showers your hair isn’t always giving you a good hair day but you can help it along with these smoothing products from éprouvage. — Marcia
