I’ve been resisting temptation of a short bob chop for the last year or so, in the hope of growing long, flowy locks for the first time in my life. I’ve been getting it cut less, but that definitely comes with its downsides – the dreaded dry, brittle ends that need saving! I find my hair is luscious and shiny on wash-day, but by day two the ends felt dry and the roots were on the way to grease-ville – ew. I’d been keeping my eyes peeled for a solution for a while when I was kindly offered a sample of the ANTI-FRIZZ SYSTEM Silky Smooth Protein Proactive Hair duo from Mayraki Hair. I’ve been so selective when it comes to haircare products in the past, but something about the product briefs looked so appealing.
Not only are the products 100% vegan, but they are sulphate and paraben free, which is an absolute must for me since learning about all of the nasties that are in our hair and body products. Here’s what Mayraki say about the two part system that is made up of a repairing shampoo and protective protein hair treatment:
“Treatment contains Collagen Amino Acids, Camellia Reticulata Seed Oil, Ginkgo Biloba leaf extract, Aloe Barbadensis Extract, Macadamia Ternifolia Extract, Rosa Rugosa Flower Extract, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, which deeply penetrates hair and helps in reconstructing and restoring hair cuticles, leaving it smooth, silky, strong, and healthy.”
I used the products once and honestly saw a weirdly massive improvement right away – I really do feel like it’s saving this dry and brittle head of hair of mine. The shampoo lathered up just the same as any other and the protein treatment (in place of conditioner) was soooo rich and creamy but didn’t weigh my hair down at all once it was dried. They say to leave the protein treatment on for up to 20 mins, but I usually only give it 5-7 and it still works wonders! I feel like I’m trying to sell this stuff on QVC by talking like this, but I was and still am totally blown away by how much healthy my hair looks and feels since trying them. I did try to take pics but it wasn’t doing it justice – so, sorry or the lack of before and after pics!
I’d recommend the duo to anyone who feels like their hair is on its last legs, feeling dry, dull and just a bit sad looking. It’s working absolute miracles for me!
