Hair Care: Elixir Concentré De Nutrition By DESSANGE


A while ago, I was at the supermarket buying my shampoo and I took a look at the hair products available. I wanted to find something to nourish my hair, but without giving me the feeling of greasiness.

I am fond of DESSANGE products, so I took my time checking their hair care range, and I found this ultimate gesture of care from their tailored care program, “The Elixir Concentré De Nutrition”.

Formulated with smoothing agents, “The Elixir Concentré De Nutrition” without rinsing, is enriched with 2 rich oils, primrose and sesame. Its creamy and velvety formula infuses the dry ends with moisture to feed them intensively and reshape your hair without weighting it down.

How to apply?

After finishing your shower, comb your hair and then apply two to three drops on the tips of your hair and the very dry areas, rub gently massaging with your fingertips. Do not rinse! Just dry your hair afterwards.

Don’t forget to shake it before use!

What I liked about this product?

I have greasy hair and I don’t like the leave in products, because of their heavy texture that makes me uncomfortable. But “The Elixir Concentré De Nutrition” has a very soft texture and smell, it mixes with the hair quickly adding a nice sweet smell.

Intensely nourished, day after day, your hair regains volume, extreme softness and shine. You’ll enjoy smooth and silky hair!

After we got introduced to this innovative brand, I got more and more curious about it, because I haven’t tested it before, so I went to visit their branch in ABC Achrafieh to get more information.

A bit of History

Founded in 1851 by John Kiehl, Kiehl’s began as a homeopathic pharmacy located at 3rd Avenue and 13th Street in the East Village of New York City.

In April 2000, the French beauty and cosmetics company L’Oréal acquired Kiehl’sL’Oréal stated it planned “to increase the brand’s presence but maintain it as a luxury line rather than a mass-market one”.

About their Products

They have a wide range of skin care products for men and women, they also have products for body as well as for hair.

Since I have mixed skin, I learned more about their Oily Skin Care System: The 3 steps to healthier skin.

To prepare my skin in the morning, I should start with the Ultra Facial Oil free Cleanser, which thoroughly removes impurities and visibly reduces excess oil on skin’s surface, while leaving skin looking more balanced, and leaves skin clean and refreshed without over drying.

Then I use the Ultra Facial Oil Free toner which gently removes residue, dirt and oil without stripping skin of vital moisture.

And then apply the Ultra Facial Oil Free Gel Cream, which visibly reduces excess oil on skin’s surface and Re-balances skin barrier for a smoother, fresher appearance.

Bring all the boys to the yard with this strawberry vanilla milkshake conditioner. A beautiful fruit and vanilla conditioner that really does the job – a dreamy, medium strength conditioner for soft, shiny, fragrant locks. This is a thick heavy conditioner, but won’t leave the hair weighted down or heavy. Its combination of honey, strawberries, and fresh orange juice in a thick lanolin conditioner base, will make the hair soft, manageable and easy to comb.

Big

lush2

Have a big hair day. This is like having your hair lifted on a sea breeze. We love salt on the hair because it’s great for giving volume. We experimented with it for a very long time before coming up with this, our ultimate salt shampoo. Sea salt is also full of minerals and de-greases hair, removing dead skin cells and dirt without stripping natural oils for a fresh, squeaky clean feeling. We balance the sea salt with seaweed infusion, extra virgin coconut oil and avocado butter for soft, nourished locks. Finally, fresh citrus juices are squeezed in for incredible shine.

Rehab

lush3

If you don’t have any prior engagements, then why not spend a night in putting your hair into rehab? Hairspray, bleach, colors, styling products, ill-health; these are all things that can really take a toll on your hair and leave it far away from its natural best. Rehab is about bringing your hair and scalp back to basics and repairing it with an array of lovely ingredients. A blend of fresh citrus juices clarify hair and scalp with active enzymes, while herbs work their magic on tired scalps. It doesn’t take long for this shampoo to restore your hair’s vitality!

Shine So Bright

lush4

A beautiful balm to prevent split ends and help hair shine so bright. Extra virgin coconut and olive oils, shea butter and fresh free range eggs nourish and improve the tensile strength of hair to prevent and mend split ends. It works wonderfully as a finishing product as well, taming fly-aways and keeping hair in place for a flawless look. Add to that an orange flower, grapefruit, neroli and rosewood perfume and you won’t want to leave home without this!

New

lush5

Spice up your hair! Give it new life. When stress or life goes to your head and your hair starts thinning, motivate those tired scalps with spice and mint oils. It’s intense, but works wonders on irritated scalps or hair that’s thinning. Healthy hair needs a healthy scalp as its foundation. New Shampoo bar has two tasks; to give amazing shine and stimulate hair follicles to maximize growth. Nettle and peppermint infusions give shine to the hair. Rosemary and nettle absolutes are included to protect, soothe and clear the scalp and also give shine.

Retread 

lush6

Drive your hair in for some serious breakdown recovery. This is a pit stop for your hair. Just like tyres, the outer layer of your hair shaft gets worn and damaged. Retread is full of ingredients to fuel your hair up again and get it back out on the road. A super-smoothing conditioning cream that gives sad hair its shine and bounce back. We make a seaweed and lanolin base and then add soya milk for protein. Added to that are olive, jojoba and avocado oils to give a deep condition. Nutritious fresh melon juice and yogurt are then stirred through.

Roots

lush7

Thine be the glory – Don’t despair, we’ve got a treatment for thin and fine hair. The route to mighty fine hair. Fine hair needs careful looking after. This treatment is packed full of ingredients to revitalize from root to tip. You’ll feel the tingling and cooling sensations of fresh mint infusion and minty oils (peppermint and spearmint) as they go to work revitalizing the scalp, because healthy hair starts at the roots! Extra virgin olive oil and honey soften and condition hair to make it shine without weighing it down. Give dull, fine and thin hair volume and shine by treating it with Roots.

I have been pampering myself with the normal version for the last two weeks after shower and I’m in LOVE.

I love the soft, pleasant smell of it.

I love the soft texture when touching the skin. I thought that since it’s an oil, it will keep my skin oily and will need a lot of time to dry, but I was completely wrong, it dries instantly, leaving you with a feathery skin.

The Huile Prodigieuse from Nuxe, is a great product for everyday use, it works everywhere and doesn’t damage your skin. You should definitely try it!

Celebrities Style: Marilyn Monroe’s “Curly Waves”


 

Marilyn Monroe’s “Curly Waves” topped the list after a poll conducted by CoolBlades.co.uk, hair & beauty salon suppliers.


The poll invited 3500+ Customers, Hair Stylists and Facebook Fans to vote on which Celebs, new and old, have caused generations of people to ‘copy’ and ‘be inspired’ by their hairstyle.

Notable entries include Audrey Hepburn’s ‘Beehive’ and yes, even ‘The Rachel’, Jennifer Aniston’s famous look from ‘FRIENDS’.

Marilyn Monroe was blonde by choice. Millions of women emulated her style and the way she styled and coloured her hair. Once again, her glamour waves make the top of the chart

 

Marilyn Monroe‘s hairstyle was one of her most prominent features, the part that pulled her appealing image together. While it may not have made her a style icon, her lively blonde hair was certainly a memorable part of her appeal. Glamour waves are in style now as they were fifty years ago. Since it is also the Hollywood style of the 1940s and 1950s, you may call wearing those generous waves retro style. Whatever the name, they are feminine and appealing.

 

Who can have the Retro Style Glamour Waves? 

Marilyn-Monroe-Frisur-

Marilyn Monroe looks as feminine as ever wearing the tousled version of her characteristic hairstyle

Retro style glamour waves enhance round faces more than small long ones.

The hairstyle characteristic of Marilyn Monroe is chin-long, layered, and platinum blonde. Her waves were large and there were not too many of them.

The sensuous hairstyle goes well with bright red lips and black eyeliner.
