*I am the editor for GlowwBox
I don’t usually write about beauty boxes because they tend to contain a mixture of hair, skin and make-up products. This one, however, is all about hair. I am the editor for GlowwBox so I did think long and hard about telling you about this box. So long in fact, the last day to buy it is today (4th December)!
I decided that I will quickly share my thoughts with you as I really liked the products. An essential part of being the editor is to test all of the products.
The salon scent which is present in all of the products brought back happy teenage memories. I remember walking into a high street black hair shop and asking what I could use to protect my hair from the heat from my first pair of proper straighteners. I was directed to the KeraCare section. I was advised to pick up Silken Seal Liquid Sheen and Essential Oils for the Hair. At the time I thought it was expensive but now looking at what I spend on haircare, it’s quite reasonably priced.
The products come in gorgeous gold packaging with numbers so we know which stage to use them. There is also a little indicator of “W”, “D” or “D/W” which tells me if I should use the product on wet hair, dry hair or both. This is useful as sometimes it is a little hard to tell when and how to use products.
KeraCare is aimed at multi-textured hair. I’ll leave it up to you to decide if that’s you! I know I have lots of curls and waves coming from my scalp so I know KeraCare will work for me. Here’s a little about each individual product otherwise you can read what I think in the magazine and on the GlowwBox blog
Hydrating Detangling Shampoo (full size)
This version is sulphate free. This is my first encounter of using a sulphate free shampoo and I really liked it. It was very cleansing but still felt gentle – it didn’t irritate my sensitive scalp at all. It also said what it said it would do- it detangled.
Humecto Crème Conditioner (full size)
This incredibly rich conditioner continues the detangling process, which is great for curly hair. It says to leave on for 15-20 minutes but for my fine, curly hair, I didn’t need to leave it on for that long to get good results. Five minutes was enough if I was in a rush. The full 15 minutes was fine also, leaving my hair soft, shiny and light.
We then get 4 styling products, the stage 3 products.
Crème Press (full size)
This is usually not something I would think about using but it really did help me get poker straight, smooth hair using my straighteners. I don’t usually know what to use in my hair when using straighteners but this will now be the product I go to. I only needed the absolute tiniest amount for my fine hair so it will last me a very long time. That, and it protects against damage from the heat of the straighteners.
Essential Oils for the Hair (sachet)
I still love this product. This is a blend of hair oils which sinks right into the hair so it doesn’t feel greasy. I love it as much now as I did when I was a teenager for its nourishing and protecting properties. I think this will always be a favourite.
High Sheen Glossifier (sachet)
I love glossfiers. They’re great for adding ultra-high shine and this delivers. It’s very rich so only the tiniest amount is needed. I found this worked great for me as a finishing touch after blow-drying to seal in and control the ends of the hair. I used the excess on my hands to smooth through the rest of my hair. I want all of it to shine!
Silken Seal (deluxe sample)
This is different to the Silken Seal Liquid Sheen I used as a teenager. The Liquid Sheen is a spray whereas this is a viscous liquid. This is a blow-drying complex which you can use on wet or dry hair to protect against heat styling. It’s also good for just nourishing and styling the hair in general. I love this multi-tasker and even though it is a deluxe sample size, I know it will last me ages as I only need to use it sparingly. This could be the star of the box.
Overall, when I was testing these products I felt good, my curls and scalp were happy and I received loads of compliments. There has to be something right about this box then! You can even enjoy the magazine where you can read my first ever editor’s note which was particular exciting for me. More than just a leaflet telling you what’s inside the box, there are also a couple of features and some special offers too.
