I’ve always heard how beneficial egg yolks are for the overall health of your hair, but let’s be honest, who has the time to be mixing up concoctions in your kitchen to create that perfect egg treatment hair mask? When I heard about Hair Recipes, a Canadian specialty hair care brand that consists of both shampoo, conditioners and oils, designed to provide natural benefits on the hair, I was eager to test out a few products for myself and share on this fashion blog. Using traditional and true ingredients, including egg, beer, wheat germ, lemon and chamomile, this unique and innovated brand has an array of different hair care products to resolve all your hair needs with its gentle, sulphate and paraben free formula. The brand encourages you to fine a homemade hair care recipe that’s right for you and discover all the Hair Recipe products that you can use to compliment your homemade treatment at home.
Another unique aspect of the company is that everything is ordered online and shipped directly to your house. By cutting out the middle man, aka your retailer, the brand can focus their investments on creating, educating and developing greater products for their customers. Another thing I love about this innovated brand is that they encourage you to create your own home made remedies that go hand in hand with their lineup of hair care products. Try mixing a raw egg with 2-3 tbsp of Hair Recipes Argan Oil before massaging onto damp scalp and waiting 5 minutes for it to penetrate deep into the hair follicles. Rinse with cool water and then shampoo with Hair Recipes Egg and Cognac Shampoo. This highly enriched protein formula instantly soaks into each strand, allowing it to grow stronger overtime, become more shiny, without looking greasy, while preventing future breakage and split ends.
Hair Recipes Egg & Cognac Shampoo is designed for those with limp and lifeless hair, as its unique highly rich protein formula penetrates deep down into the hair follicles to help strengthen hair, ensure you’ll never have split ends or breakage again. The more you use it, the more resilient your hair will become. It’s also formulated with eggs to turn dry, dull, damaged hair into soft, silky, shiny hair in the matter of days. It helps to naturally cleanse the hair without stripping it of its natural oils.
Hair Recipes Egg & Cognac Shampoo has a fairly rich and creamy, almost silky consistency, that smells like paradise. Think tropical getaway with the fresh scents of coconuts and palm trees. It’s the perfect way to wake up in the morning. With only a dime size amount, it comes to a decent lather when added to water and it does an amazing job at cleansing my hair of all product buildup, dirt and oil that I may accumulate throughout the day. It gently, yet thoroughly, washes my hair, leaving it feeling incredibly soft, smooth, hydrated and squeaky clean. My chemically processed, often somewhat dry hair, never feels stripped, brittle or horse hair like. It seems to nourish my hair from the inside out, never leaving it feeling heavy, greasy or oily. It also seems to help control frizz, even before the conditioner or heat tools. It’s feeling stronger, healthier and with less breakage in only a few short weeks. Since I do have incredibly short and thin hair, I often worry about heavy shampoos weighing my hair down, but this one leaves it feeling lightweight, manageable and completely weightless. It retails for $14.95 for 200ml.
Hair Recipes Egg Yolk Conditioner has the same thick, yellow consistency as the shampoo, but a little more slippery, if that makes sense, which allows you to effortlessly distribute throughout the hair with ease. Since the shampoo did such an amazing job at hydrating my hair, I don’t feel the need to use this conditioner daily, like I do with other brands. I’ve been using it about 2 to 3 times a week, when my hair is feeling extra dry and brittle. Only the smallest amount of product is required to instantly moisturize and hydrate the hair for days to come. The rich and creamy formula instantly penetrates deep down into your hair cuticles, providing a ton of nourishment. It too, like the shampoo, doesn’t seem to weigh my thin, short hair down, nor does it leave it looking or feeling greasy. It does provide a ton of shine and silkiness to the hair, adding life back into each strand after every use. As you continue to rinse out, you can immediately feel the results, it detangles all knots and makes it manageable, even before brushing. As my hair starts to air dry, I can instantly see the shine and with less frizz and fly-a-ways. I haven’t been reaching for my flat iron as often as I have in the past. I think both products go hand in hand to help smooth, hydrate and calm my hair. It retails for $16.95 for 200ml.
The Hair Recipes Macadamia Oil might be my favourite product out of the bunch, not only did it help to nourish, moisturize and hydrate my hair, it helped to protect it while adding softness and shine. It has an incredibly lightweight, surprising never greasy formula that absorbs into the hair almost instantly for a completely weightless feel. It helps to provide instant nutrition, while enhancing shine and vibrancy. It adds both softness and shine, while keeping it smooth, sleek and frizz-free. I apply a small amount and work into the ends of my hair and then whatever is left over, I rub gently onto the top of my head to control fly-a-ways. I can actually feel it improving the overall health, strength and elasticity of my hair the more I use it. It also doesn’t hurt that it smells amazing. It retails for $18.95 for 60ml.
