It’s been getting warm and humid in Kansas City already. Sigh. I have decided to try to keep my hair treated and moisturized.
I have been switching between the following products (sent to me for my honest review) for the last few weeks.
Nexxus® Youth Renewal™ Rejuvenating Elixir ($17.99 USD) — This lightweight leave-in treatment helps rebuild hair’s strength whilemaking hair look more youthful, vibrant and radiant in just seven days*. The packaging allows for precise application through a dropper that distributes the product.
Nexxus® Youth Renewal™ Plump & Lift Blow Dry Spray ($17.99 USD) — Youth Renewal™ Plump & Lift Blow Dry Spray, infused with VITA-8 Complex™, builds thicker-looking hair by providing weightless volume that lasts all day.
I like to use both of these Nexxus products on damp hair together. I start with the spray and comb it through my hair, then I add 4 drops of the elixir and smooth it through my hair. I don’t blow dry my hair, but it air dries to be very soft and shiny!
You can purchase these products at drugstores and mass market retailers near you. Visit www.nexxus.com to learn more.
Ecru Acacia Protein Oil ($30 USD) — This multi-tasking elixir provides superb conditioning and moisturization for the hair. In addition, it protects against heat damage during styling, reduces drying time, eliminates frizz, and helps to mend split ends for hair that’s incredibly smooth with brilliant shine. It contains:
Acacia Collagen™: A patented plant-based anti-aging collagen that moisturizes hair and improves the hair’s ability to retain that moisture.
Argan Oils: To soften and smooth the hair, giving it that silky feel.
Hydrolyzed Keratin: To condition the hair, improving elasticity, manageability, shine and body of the hair.
My favorite way to use this oil is to rub a pump or two between my hands and smooth it on my hair. I start with my ends then move up to my roots. It is not greasy at all in my hair, it just makes it so soft and shiny!

I used this as my conditioner with my regular shampoo. I left it in for a few minutes and after my hair dried, it was so soft — and wavy! I have semi-wavy hair and this made me look like I had braided my hair wet, then un-braided it dry. So cute!
