Luxe hair care

Some time ago I started using a gorgeous Wella System Professional Luxe Oil finishing product as part of the my Wella EnergyCode consultation.

When I heard a whole new Luxe Oil, which has a combination of nurturing oils was out, I just had to try.

The whole range is oil based, of course, with a blend of Argan, almond and jojoba oils and very lightweight. Together with the EnergyCode Complex TM, which has natural lipids, caffeine, histidine and vitamin B3 amide, act long term to improve hair structure, texture and manageability. Lipids and oeleic acid entering the hair structure help hair look younger.

Clean and nourished

The Keratin Protect Shampoo gives roots and scalp a thorough but gentle cleanse, as well as protecting and strengthening with keratin and panthenol. And the Keratin Conditioning Cream softens hair making detangling and brushing a breeze.

The Keratin Restore Mask is rich and nourishing; an intensive treatment to help reconstruct and restore dry and damaged hair, leaving it supple and soft after use.

Post-wash care

The leave in treatments are great: the Keratin Boost Essence is a lightweight spray that hydrates and works on protecting against breakage and realigning the fibres for more manageable hair.

The Cream Elixir delivers smooth finishing and contains high absorption keratin for deep regeneration and long term suppleness.

Of course, the Reconstructive Elixir has an oil aspect and is multitasking: fantastic for smoothing, giving dry hair that polished, shiny finish or as a reconstructive, nourishing addition to wet hair.

When drying, after using the collection to wash and care for my hair, I am involved by the amazing fragrance: a blend of oswanthus, muguet and tonka, over a wooden base of musk and amber and finished with fresh aspects of grapefruit, apricots and spices. It in fact lingers on the hair, subtly, for a while.

Also, there is that luxurious smell of salon in the air after styling! Love it!

You can get the from salons. To find out more about the range, or find  salon to get your EnergyCodeTM consultation, check the Wella System Profession site.

Salon care, at home!

wella-at-home-system-professional-review-1Wella is a brand that for me holds nothing but great memories. Before I bought my own shampoo and conditioner of choice, my mum used to buy the good old Balsam and Revlon Flex and Aquamarine. So my hair grew up with that.

And of course, Koleston was the first hair dye I used to blondify my life. and stayed for seven years.

Fast forward (only) a few years and Wella is back in my life, but with a difference: the products I am using are tailored to my hair needs. That is Wella at home.

The salon consultation is more extensive and you leave with a more complete regime. The online tool, however, gives you a snapshot of the best products for your needs. And there is no surprise both matched, with a few added products for the salon consultation.

I am talking about the Energy Code Speed mapping, dubbed the “speed dating” (opposed to the “dinner date” salon consultation, which can be guided with the app that help salon professionals “prescribe” the personalised Wella regime for their clients), which doesn’t take that long and you end up with a full regime to care for your locks.

The best thing is that you end up with products from various lines, mixed and matched especially for you. That makes me feel special!

After talking about my concerns – sensitive scalp, fine hair, oily roots, dry ends and so on – I left with five amazing products.

wella-at-home-system-professional-review-4The Wella System Professional Balance shampoo provides gentle cleansing. It lathers well and leaves hair squeaky clean without stripping. it is great for sensitive, irritated and itchy scalp.

wella-at-home-system-professional-review-2We all love a good mask and I was given that and not a conditioner. Weird, I know, but it works, to be used twice a week, the System Professional Volumize Mask is a dream. It reinforces the hair structure from within and delivers super moisturisation.

wella-at-home-system-professional-review-3The System Professional Hydrate Quenching Mist is great to use. It can replace the conditioner most days; it gives the hair that extra hydration without weighing it. It is leave-in and helps with detangling for stress-free brushing/combing and smooth hair.

wella-at-home-system-professional-review-5I also got the System Professional Alpha Energy, a scalp spray to help strengthening the hair, also from the within. It works at hair structure level for healthier, stronger hair. That translates in less damage, more manageability, less irritation and better moisture. After continuous use, scalp should feel rejuvenated and less irritated.

Lovely to use, it is quite refreshing and soothing at application; it smells divine and disappears on hair after application; when applied on dry hair, it does not grease or clump. It dries quickly and hair looks fresh at the roots.

For finish, my longer prescription came with Repair Perfect Ends and Luxe Oil Reconstructive Elixir which I have been using (and loving!).

However, I am also using the brand new Wella Oil Reflections Luminous Reflective Oil. It is luscious, light, the smell is fabulous and gives the hair a gorgeous finish.

Best part (apart from amazing hair, of course), is that my bedroom smelt like a salon after drying. So nice!

You can take a look at all the amazing Wella System Professional products, do the express mapping and get your personalised code.

Sadly the Oil Reflection Luminous Oil is not available until January 2017 – so make a note and hurry buy it when it is out!
