Natural Hair Care Heaven: Beauty with a Twist

Hi, everyone! I'm back from vacation and am here to rave about some hair care. I go through phases in my life when hair products are an afterthought- any drugstore $2 bottle will do- and others where I'm properly obsessed about what treats my tresses. I currently find myself in the latter stage because I've come across a shampoo and conditioner that totally have me smitten!

Fairly new on the market, Beauty With a Twist was born in 2013. It was developed by hair professional and celebrity stylist Oliver Ifergan, who aimed to create a range that was unique, effective, and unconventional (in the best kind of way). The brand is inspired by the Californian lifestyle- lush, easy breezy, and natural. Their products not only have a beautiful tropical scent, but are also made without the nasties so ubiquitous in haircare these days. They include organic certified ingredients, are cruelty-free and vegan, and nearly all items are free from parabens and sulfates. So when the brand got in touch for me to try two of their best sellers, I was thrilled to give them a go!

I was sent along their Daily Shampoo** and Daily Conditioner**, which are designed to add hydration and shine while protecting coloured hair. They were accompanied by a snapshot of a beach near the brand's HQ, which totally added to the Californian vibe. This Polaroid inspired me to photograph my goodies in my own waterfront bliss in Muskoka.

The Daily Shampoo** aims to gently cleanse dry or colour-treated hair while mositurizing with shea butter, provide UV protection with white tea, and soothe the scalp with hibiscus and vanilla cactus. The Daily Conditioner** promises to provide deep hydration via strengthening peptides and to protect hair strands with vitamins and minerals. They both are paraben- , sulfate-, and cruelty- free and have a beautiful, exotic fragrance of coconut, peach, bergamot, jasmine, rose, ylang-ylang, musk, and vanilla. They smell so lush and tropical! 

I am totally loving these products! Not only do they smell absolutely beautiful, they are also rich, creamy, and a total pleasure to use. Despite the lack of suflates, the shampoo creates a rich lather and the conditioner feels wonderfully hydrating. Since I've been using them, my  hair has been so happy- shiny, moisturized, frizz-free, and fragrant. I am so happy with them and cannot wait to try more from the brand (they have released Volumizing and High Light Shampoos, which are ultra tempting)!

If Beauty With a Twist sounds like your type of hair care brand, you can now find it here in Canada at Amazon.ca (here!)
