The Best Drugstore Makeup Ever! Part 4: Hair/Skin

Now technically I know that this post doesn't count towards makeup.. but we
all have hair & Faces! And we should all make the effort to start off with a fresh clean slate, right? Well these budget beauties definitely look and work exactly like their higher end counter parts just without costing us an arm and a limb haha! And in case you've missed it, here are the last few posts from, The Best Drugstore Makeup Series: Part 1: Face, here, Part 2: Eyes, here and Part 3: Lips, here. And without any further adieu, lets jump right into it!

Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque: I just put a little of this stuff onto the ends of my hair and work it up almost half way and leave it for a few minutes before rinsing. My hair always ends up so much softer, stronger and healthier looking, and also smells so nice! The Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque leaves your hair deeply nourished. It improves the elasticity and shine within your hair. It also provides long lasting conditioning benefits. Repairs dry, damaged hair, (which I know all of us ladies are guilty of lol). This also rejuvenates and rebuilds the your hair. This product is infused with macadamia oil, argan oil, tea tree oil, chamomile oil, aloe and algae extracts.
Organix Hydrating Macadamia Oil Intensive Mask:  This totally indulgent deep conditioner drenches even the driest, most brittle hair with moisture,  (I'm talking about my hair lol..) leaving it soft, supple, and even touchable with a fusion of gentle conditioning macadamia oil and moisturizing bamboo extract, while sugar cane extract gives hair silky new life. Organix Hydrating Macadamia Oil Intensive Mask replenishes moisture without a heavy build-up. It is beneficial that this mask contains Macadamia oil which will extend the life of color treatments. The bamboo extract also helps strengthen the hair follicle and retain moisture to promote shine. Making this the perfect dupe for our more pricey counter part up above.

CHI Silk Infusion Silk Reconstructing Complex: I was somewhat apprehensive about ordering this product because most heat protectants leave my hair oily and weighed down. BUT! There is a but, It made my hair feel great even before styling. I recommend this to anyone who heat styles their hair. (Curling irons, blow drying, flat ironing, etc.) CHI Silk Infusion Silk Reconstructing Complex offered superb heat protection and made my hair appear thicker and it felt very silky with no tangles. The product is thick and a bit oily feeling on the hands, but not on the hair. This is an leave in, alcohol free reconstructing treatment enriched with pure natural silk, wheat and soy proteins, for soft manageable hair with incredible shine and no build up. 
Got 2B Smooth Operator Lustre Lotion: I bought the smoothing lustre lotion when I first started to heat style my hair. I wanted a product to reduce frizz, impart shine, be a heat protectant, and be light on my hair. The Got 2B Smoothing Lustre Lotion fulfills all my requirements, actually it exceeds my requirements. The lotion smooths my hair and smells heavenly. I recently used the lotion for a at-home hair blowout and I noticed my hair was not weighed down, my hair was frizz free and soft, and again the smell was fantastic! This decadent lotion shapes, smoothes, controls fly-aways and imparts and amazing weightless lustre and softness. Protects against damage from heat styling and contains a UV protectant.

Kerastase Masque Chroma Riche: Whether your hair is highlighted, chemically treated or down right dull & dry, we all know that many color specific products only mask the issue; the hair care equivalent of slapping on some flimsy bandage on a gaping wound. This baby here, Kerastase Masque Chroma Riche does what it intends to do which is to get to the "root" of the problem: repair texture to convert even the driest of hair into softer, shiner, & healthier hair. Supercharged with a powerhouse cocktail of emollients and moisture retaining ingredients this bad boy aims to please both hydration and protection while also reducing color fadeage.

This intense luxurious reconstructing balm instantly repairs the 5 signs of damage: 1. Split Ends 2. Weakness 3. Roughness 4. Dullness & 5. Dehydration.

Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment For all Hair Types: There are a lot of versions of this product, and while they vary, all in all Moroccan oil is just a great thing. It has a very unique texture and gives hair a lot of slip, and increases smoothness even in the coarsest hair. And lets just talk about the way it smells!
