This beauty post has been so long overdue because I’ve had these products for a few months, absolutely love them and have completely neglected telling you about them! Colleen Rothschild has done so many new categories this year and hair care is one of their newest.
The Colleen Rothschild hair kit is 1: very affordable, 2. super effective in smoothing your hair and 3. something you’ll definitely want to try this summer. I could not recommend it more!
Just to give you an idea of what I’m working with, I have very thick, wavy hair so I’m always looking for products to smooth and soften my hair. It’s been an unending battle to keep it all under control, and I’ll try just about anything that claims to smooth and straighten (except I’ve never tried a Brazilian blowout and people tell me I should). I also normally wear my hair wavy, so when we shot this post, showing it straight on a pretty humid day is another thing I was happy to show in the effectiveness of these products.
First up, let me tell you about the Quench & Restore Hair Mask. I wash my hair about twice a week and use this every single time. It makes my hair feel amazingly smooth and soft. I mean, I could literally tell the difference after one use and I think it’s gotten better as I’ve used it more. You shampoo, rinse and use it as a conditioning step. I’ll leave it in while I shave my legs and then rinse it out – and that’s all the time you need for it to work! It doesn’t seem to weigh my hair down or make it greasy, it just seriously makes it amazingly soft.
Then there’s the Smooth & Shine Hair Serum. I use this as my finishing step after I’ve dried, straightened and curled my hair. If I dry my hair at night, I usually do it the next morning when I style it and get ready for the day. I find that this is just another great smoothing step without weight or grease. You can even feel the serum on your hands that it isn’t sticky or heavy, so it just adds shine and softness to your hair.
I’m super picky about hair products, friends, and these are two absolutely great ones that I really highly recommend! The whole kit is also only $48, and it comes with a brush you can use to disperse the mask through your hair. As someone who spends quite a lot on hair care, this is a great deal in my eyes and the products will last you a really long time. Like I said, I use the mask twice a week and feel like I have barely made a dent in it!
So what else do I use?
I’ve been using the Colleen Rothschild hair kit consistently since I got it, which has been a couple of months. But here’s what else I’m using:
- Fanola “No Orange” Shampoo
- Kerastase Bain Oleo Relax Shampoo (I alternate shampoos depending on the day)
- Davines Your Hair Assistant Blow Dry Primer
- Davines This Is A Relaxing Moisturizing Fluid
- Drybar Hot Toddy Heat Protectant
- Kerastase Hair Spray
I’m also not one of those people that tries to go a ridiculously long time without washing my hair. I do wash my hair about twice a week because I do workout almost every day and I especially need it in the summer. I do feel that the combination of everything I’ve been using has made my hair less greasy and my blowouts last longer, so my hair seems less dirty and worn out when I do wash it.
