Since quitting my job, I've made a concerted effort to take better care of myself. I spent almost a decade overworked, running on too little sleep and not enough nutritious food for fuel. Since November, I've started working out five days a week with a personal trainer, cut out most alcohol, and changed my diet to include more fruits, vegetables, and nutritious ingredients. I'm also making changes to my beauty routine to make it healthier and more beneficial. So when Hair Food reached out and asked if I'd like to try their collection of haircare products, I agreed. It makes perfect sense; healthy ingredients on the inside and healthy ingredients on the outside.
Hair Food is inspired by the nutrition found in power foods to fuel your beauty routine with expertly crafted recipes, blending naturally-inspired ingredients and fragrances to revitalize your hair. Just as you feed your body with delicious, nourishing ingredients, your hair is also hungry for real nourishment. I let Hair Food know my top priority with my hair is to maintain my color and they sent me the Hair Food Sulfate Free Color Protect collection.
Hair Food Sulfate Free Color Protect collection is scented with white nectarine and pear. It's not too strong and smells like real fruit, not candy. The shampoo has a lightweight lather which I love; don't expect full-on suds like many shampoos. Free of sulfates, parabens, mineral oil, dyes, and gluten, Hair Food Color Protect collection cleanses without stripping, conditions without coating, leaving your hair soft and shiny.
I'll admit I was a bit concerned about trying a new shampoo and conditioner. I color treat my hair, and my hair is quick to lose color if I don't use the right products. No worries with Hair Food. Even with washing my hair almost daily after the gym I still have my grays covered and my brunette locks shining and not brassy. Seriously, the only other shampoo I've found to maintain my color this long costs four times as much (and has a similar ingredient list). Color me impressed (heh, see what I did there?). I also often deal with my roots getting greasy too soon after a wash and I didn't experience that with Hair Food. I was able to go a couple days without shampooing, which is always a positive for us gals with color-treated hair (and those short on time in the morning). Usually hair does this when it's stripped from being over-cleaned; it's a testament to Hair Food's formula to keep my hair looking clean longer.
Hair Food is available at CVS and many other retailers. Thank you, Hair Food, for partnering with me, I've found a new favorite shampoo and conditioner!
