Doux you want to enter this hair product giveaway? Of course you Doux

There’s a new kid in town – Target town that is. Starting on Christmas Eve this hot new hair line will be the star at the top of Target’s tree.

The Doux® (pronounced The Do) is a “new school” modern hair care system with an “old school edge.” With packaging that is bold and bright and product titles inspired by 90’s hip hop, The Doux is poised to kill it with those seeking a way to smoothing curly, kinky, and wavy hair into both, curly or straight styles.

Created by Maya Smith, a 25-year celebrity stylist and International Curl Master, The Doux was first launched in Europe in 2011 in response to her passion for helping people master the hair they were born with. STRAIGHT, NATURAL, CURLY, or RELAXED, according to The Doux, if you grew it, it’s ALL GOOD. “I was living in Germany at the time, had my own salon there and my specialty was helping clients to transition to a relaxer-free lifestyle. I’m obsessed with people maximizing the potential of the hair they were born with. Mastering curls is my passion and purpose,” explains Smith.

The people felt her passion through her products. The Doux blew up overseas so much so that it caught the attention of media in the USA. “Once we started getting press in the states the demand for The Doux was incredible. I had to return to the states and see this vision through,” Maya Smith explains. In 2014, Maya opened The DOUX Salon™ in Macon Georgia’s historic Downtown district and started selling her professional grade products at her salons and on-line.

Fast-forward three years and a lot of work and dedication, The Doux will arrive in Target stores, on Christmas Eve; no easy feat for an indie brand. “We are so excited to bring The Doux to the masses. It’s 20 years in the making. We listened to 20 years of feedback from actual clients from Minneapolis to Morocco. We listened to what people wanted, a salon grade, high quality product that delivered on its promises. Helping people to manage and maintain their natural hair and celebrate their own bold, unique style is what the last 25 years of my professional life has been about,” Maya Smith shares.

The Doux also redesigned its packaging, with the intention to disrupt the category. It’s bold with bright colors, which is the opposite of the more subdued look you see on the shelves currently. “I’m a fan of 90’s rap so I wanted to incorporate lyrics and titles in the packaging,” adds Smith. With titles such as Bonita Afro Balm, Mousse Def, Sucka Free, Fresh Rinse, and The Light, The Doux will most definitely catch the eyes of Millennials and Gen X’ers alike.

Doesn’t this sound fun? And you can be a winner of 3 Doux products if you are a Beauty Info Zone US subscriber. The company has offered a giveaway for three of these hotties.

CUVÉE, the champagne of haircare

CUVÉE is an invitation to a world of modern luxury. Where the champagne is forever flowing and your hair is forever flawless.

CUVÉE Protective Treatment

CUVÉE Protective Treatment

I’ve been introduced to the champagne of haircare with CUVÉE. I was sent 3 packets of this luxury line along with a full size of their Styling Treatment so that I could experience the glamour of the line. This is not your mother’s haircare and it certainly isn’t my mother’s but it’s uniqueness makes it worth trying. I did find this to be a very fragrant line. It’s a combination of champagne and fig and is scented this way to develop a seductive experience.

CUVÉE Shampoo, Styling Balm and Conditioner packets

CUVÉE Shampoo, Styling Balm and Conditioner packets

Each product contains our proprietary Cuvée Complex™ that utilizes small, best-of-the-batch ingredients for products that create real results. Champagne, White Truffle, Platinum along with other Botanicals are carefully blended to repair and strengthen for lush, shiny hair.

CUVÉE Shampoo

CUVÉE Shampoo

CUVÉE SHAMPOO ($35) is for all hair types. This lathers up beautifully, I almost felt like I was in a shampoo commercial. It left my hair very soft and easy to manage.  Even though I only got 4 washes from it my color stayed true. It also doesn’t leave a residue behind so that meant no flakes on my scalp.

CUVÉE Conditioner

CUVÉE Conditioner

CUVÉE Conditioner ($38) is the perfect product to use after using their shampoo. It doesn’t take a lot to condition yet it left my hair very manageable. I felt like it was hydrating yet it washed out easily. All CUVÉE products are Sulfate Free, Paraben Free,  Phthalate Free, and Cruelty Free.

CUVÉE Styling Balm

CUVÉE Styling Balm

CUVÉE Styling Balm ($45) is the product I had trouble with the first time I used it. I always need a balm or serum to smooth out my hair or I can’t even get my brush through it. I didn’t realize how little I needed of this balm and overdid it my first time. My hair felt heavy and weighed down. Even though the cost of this Styling Balm is higher than the shampoo and conditioner, it takes just a small amount to work so you’ll get many more uses from it. This is especially nice for hair that needs taming especially with frizz weather here. You can use this on both wet or dry hair but it’s too thick for me on dry hair. It’s a very lush feeling balm but a little goes a long way.

CUVÉE Protective Treatment

CUVÉE Protective Treatment

CUVÉE Protective Treatment ($45) is a spray serum that you can easily use on wet or dry hair. I used it on second/third day hair prior to using a heating tool. It’s very lightweight and doesn’t weigh my hair down at all. This treatment has UV Protection & Antioxidant properties to protect your hair from the sun and elements. CUVÉE Protective Treatment is the product that I definitely noticed the champagne feel. I felt enveloped in it. While the ingredients don’t mention champagne the CUVÉE Complex contains it.

Combining only top-of-the-line ingredients, the CUVEE COMPLEX™ was born. It is a carefully crafted blend of: Champagne Extracts for soft, shiny hair that provides antioxidant properties to guard against damage from pollution. White Truffle Extracts add moisture. Platinum Extracts detoxifies the hair and scalp. Plant proteins nourish and protect from UV Rays. Resveratrol slows down the process of hair loss. Ceramides help repair hair fibers resulting in stronger, thicker, more resilient hair.

If you are ready for luxury in your life then you are probably ready for CUVÉE in your life too. — Marcia

éprouvage proves hair can look its best in any season

logo

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 smoothing shampoo and conditioner

éprouvage smoothing shampoo and conditioner

press sample

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.

éprouvage Smoothing Shampoo

éprouvage Smoothing Shampoo

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.

Benefits

  • Restores hydration and nourishes dry, unruly hair.
  • Gently detangles without weighing hair down.
  • Replenishes moisture and improves manageability.
éprouvage Smoothing Conditioner

éprouvage Smoothing Conditioner

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

Go for natural beauty with Good Earth Beauty’s Beauty Box

I read complaints all the time about beauty boxes for several reasons: there aren’t any boxes for natural beauty lovers; I don’t need a new box every month; there are so many products that would come that I wouldn’t use. Forget all that because there’s a beauty box in town that has shot these all down. That box is from Good Earth Beauty. I’m very impressed with the way they run the box program. You pick exactly which box/es you want. You pick when they should come. You pick the variety you like best. And there are often new boxes that will tempt you.                                               *pr sample

While I’ve only used the Japanese Cherry Blossom that was in my set I can tell you that not only does it smell delicious but the shampoo and conditioner left my hair soft and well-cleansed without stripping it of natural oils. This fragrance is considered their moisturizing one and my hair appreciated it. (Value in box $5)

Good Earth Beauty Vitamin C Normal Skin Facial Cleanser

Good Earth Beauty Vitamin C Normal Skin Facial Cleanser

The Good Earth Beauty cleanser in my box is the Vitamin C Facial Cleanser for normal skin. There are 3 cleansers that Good Earth creates: Vitamin C for normal, Sugar Cleanser for oily skin, and Aloe & Honey for dry skin. “this Botanical Gel Wash is exactly what you have been looking for.

Good Earth Beauty Mint Mojito hair and body wash

Good Earth Beauty Mint Mojito hair and body wash

The delicious smelling Hair and Body Wash in my box is Mint Mojito. This minty lime smells so much like the drink. Good Earth Beauty says it’s enough for 3 uses but I’ve already gotten 4 uses out of it and will get at least one more. There are 7 flavors of this: Mint Mojito, Chocolate Amour, coconut, cranberry citrus, Honey Almond, Strawberry Margarita and Warm Vanilla. (Hungry or thirsty yet??).

Good Earth Beauty Chocolate Lip Scrub

If I didn’t convince you in my previous Good Earth Beauty Lip Scrub review then this is the perfect opportunity to drill this into your head. OMG Chocolate! I love the other flavors but you know a chocoholic is going to go nuts for this one. This is a sugar scrub that you really want to just lick off your lips but wait until it’s done its job first.

Color Care by StriVectin HAIR – Ageless Beauty

Leave it to StriVectin to not only come out with a new terrific haircare line but to add in a product I’ve never used before even after having color treated hair for dozens of years. I received the opportunity to try out StriVectinHAIR Color Care Starter Trio and was eager to have the experience. Now that I’m using it, I’m thrilled.

StriVectin HAIR Color Care Starter Trio

StriVectin HAIR Color Care Starter Trio

This travel size set is the perfect way to know if StriVectin HAIR is for you. There’s a 2 fl oz bottle of Color Care Shampoo, a 2 fl oz bottle of Color Care Conditioner, and the product that makes this even more special – a 1 oz tube of Color Care Vibrancy Booster. The Color Care Trio has lasted me for several weeks and I’m not finished with the 3 products.

StriVectin Color Care Trio

StriVectin Color Care Trio

I haven’t enjoyed washing my hair this much in months. I love how my hair looks and feels after using this. Why do you want this? I’m sure it’s for the same reasons I do. If you color treat your hair you want to use products that are very gentle yet effective. Products that help you retain color and keep it from fading. What makes StriVectin different is that it’s formulated with “NIA-114™ and Chromalast Protein Complex™ to offer UV protection, lock in color, and reduce damage due to coloring treatments. ”

While the shampoo and conditioner are excellent and I feel like they do their job perfectly, it’s the Color Care Instant Vibrancy Booster that has made me excited about StrivectinHAIR. As a matter of fact it’s sitting in my Beauty Brands cart waiting for me to order it.

StriVection HAIR Color Care Instant Vibrancy Booster

StriVection HAIR Color Care Instant Vibrancy Booster

Color Care Instant Vibrancy Booster has a texture that’s between a serum and a conditioner, it’s slightly thicker than a hair serum would be while at the same time it’s thin enough to massage it into your hair easily. Wash, condition, and then vibrancy boost. The way to use the booster is to massage it onto your scalp and then work your way down. Leave it in for 2-3 minutes. It’s recommended to use this 2 to 3 times a week which works great for my personal timing. The Instant Vibrancy Booster targets signs of damage but it also helps strengthen your hair for improved conditioning and luster. When I use it I feel that my hair is shinier than ever.

The products have a luscious smell. I had to stick my nose into the bottles to figure out what it was since it’s not overwhelming. I notice a melon fragrance to them. I can smell it on my hair when I move my head and it makes me smile. Some scented products keep me up at night but these soothe me.

StriVectin HAIR

StriVectin HAIR

StriVectin explain all the benefits on their box to show why these contribute to ageless hair. You hair will be strong, radiant, full, hydrated, nourished, smooth, soft, bodified, vibrant, and manageable. I’m going to have to agree with all 10 points. I love running my fingers through my StriVection HAIR head!

StriVectin HAIR Color Care products

StriVectin HAIR Color Care products

This set is one of 3 that StriVectin has and they also have a full line of their products. If you need extra volume try the Max Volume Starter Trio, the secret product in that collection is the Max Volume Bodifying Radiance Serum. If you feel you need to restore and revitalize damaged hair then the Ultimate Restore Starter Trio is the answer to your needs. That too has a special product, the Ultimate Restore Deep Repair Mask. Each trio is $30 or $32 while individual products cost between $10 and $45. Almost every product can be bought in the travel size too if there’s just one you want to test out. That alone is unique.

Beauty Brands carries the StriVectin Hair line along with other online retailers. StriVectin has come so far from their beginning and the direction they are going in with their hair line is making me so happy. Color Care products are just what the (hair) doctor ordered for me.  — Marcia

Our Kenra Professional Hair Care experiences

One of the great things about being blog partners is that Lisa and I (Marcia) can share experiences and products. We are always gabbing back and forth over what we’ve used and what we love. We also insist that each other use products that we’ve fallen in love with.  That’s the case with KENRA PROFESSIONAL HAIR PRODUCTS. Lisa fell in love with the products she reviewed and insisted that I would love them too. Kenra happily shared more items with us which we appreciate.

MARCIA’S PRODUCTS

 

Kenra Daily Provision and Kenra Platinim Smoothing Creme

Kenra Daily Provision and Kenra Platinim Smoothing Creme

I was looking for styling products including something to protect my hair before flat ironing. I’ve had trouble finding something that wasn’t too wet since I didn’t want to fry my hair. I wanted something gentle without a heavy fragrance but that was powerful enough to hold up to a hot hair styling tool. KENRA DAILY PROVISION to the rescue. This leave-in conditioner was exactly what I was hoping it would be.

Kenra Daily Provision

Kenra Daily Provision

This $15 spray is double duty and when I can get everything I need in one handy item, I’m thrilled. I can spray this on my wet from the shower hair and it becomes the leave in that I need when I’m using my blow dryer. Or I can use it whenever I want before I style with any heated tool. It’s very lightweight but it does the job perfectly. It’s never too heavy, it’s never sticky, it protects against UV, color, and adds the thermal protection I’ve been seeking.

I love that it helps with humidity and frizz too. I don’t use dry shampoo very often so this is the type of refresher that I prefer. There’s a light fragrance that I notice at first only.

Super ingredient list:

  • Amodimethicone A water soluable silicone that imparts shine, manageability and anti-static properties.
  • Daily Provision Complex (Chamomile, Horse Chestnut, Sage. Nettle, Lemon Balm, Coltsfoot Leaf, Rosemary, Birch, and Horsetail) A complex that provides scalp soothing benefits, adds shine and moisture to hair and provides an uplifting aroma.
  • Cetrimonium Chloride A conditioning agent that detangles the hair and improves wet combing.
  • Hydrolyzed Silk Protein A protein that provides strength to hair.
  • Benzophenone-4 Sunscreen for UV protection from drying and color fade.
Kenra Platinum Smoothing Creme

Kenra Platinum Smoothing Creme

KENRA PLATINUM SMOOTHING CREME is the other product I’ve been using. It’s replaced my old favorites and it did that instantaneously. I can’t believe how smooth this makes my hair feel and how it helps with blow drying. It doesn’t take much to rub through my shoulder length hair. I’m able to comb through my hair quickly and easily once applied.

Kenra Platinum Smoothing Creme 3 short pumps

Kenra Platinum Smoothing Creme 3 short pumps

The Smoothing Creme is part of the Platinum line which is a salon sold line. It is available at drugstore.com but I had trouble finding anyplace else that sells it online. I recommend tracking it down if you love silky soft hair that stays clean for days. Using this your hair is protected from UV rays as well as the heat or your blow dryer and other heated tools. I use this after washing my hair and save Daily Provisions for the days I just style.

Super ingredients:

    • Dimethicone Silicone, hair conditioner.
    • Panthenol and Sodium PCA Provides moisture and restores shine.
    • Cinnamidopropyltrimonium Chloride UV filter that helps to prevent damage and to preserve color. Also provides thermal protection from blow drying and curling irons

LISA’S PRODUCTS

Kenra Hair Care

Kenra Hair Care

A while back I fell in love with my Kenra Platinum Thickening Glaze as well as the Thickening Glaze and I couldn’t stop raving about them to Marcia. I had very high expectations for the next three products I tried from Kenra and I’m happy to say I wasn’t disappointed.

Kenra Hair Care

1.  Color Maintenance Shampoo for Color Treated Hair  ($23)  I love this shampoo because it cleans my hair and keeps my color looking fresh and bright. It does everything a great shampoo should do, including:

  • Gently cleanses and replenishes moisture without stripping hair color
  • Improves manageability and readily detangles
  • Helps to strengthen chemically challenged hair
  • Adds vibrance and shine
  • Great for all hair types
  • Helps extend the life of color/color safe
Ingredients like coconut oil-derived cleansers and botanical extracts protect hair color and this shampoo is a terrific match with the coordinating conditioner.

2.  Color Maintenance Conditioner for Color Treated Hair ($31) This is a bit of an oddball product. The texture really threw me off at first – it’s a little watery and very gritty. I have found that it’s helpful to shake the bottle before using and I have to say it has become one of my most favorite hair care products. It accomplishes a lot:

  • Gently cleanses and replenishes moisture without stripping hair color
  • Improves manageability and readily detangles
  • Helps to strengthen chemically challenged hair
  • Adds vibrance and shine
  • Great for all hair types
  • Helps extend the life of color/color safe
I think the grittiness is from the silk proteins that repair hair and calm any frizziness. Also, the emollients are perfect for smoothing and detangling color treated hair.  

3.  Platinum Blow-Dry Spray ($22)  This smells fabulous….really clean and fresh. I normally don’t particularly like fragranced hair products, but this is one to buy just because it smells so perfect. Other pluses?  It helps my hair dry faster and is a great detangler. Here are all the benefits:

  • Dramatically decreases blow-dry time by 50%
  • Provides intense heat protection from damage and breakage
  • Lightweight formulation detangles, smoothes, and softens
  • Eliminates frizz and resists humidity
  • Provides long-lasting, healthy looking results
All together, my Kenra Professional Hair Care trio makes for a wonderful hair day every time I use them.  Marcia and I don’t just want to enlighten each other – we want our readers to join in on the secrets to the best products, and Kenra Professional Hair Care products are definitely ones to add to your must-try list!
