Just because you’re planning to stay Cozy At Home doesn’t mean you should let your beauty routine suffer. Whether or not you have anywhere fancy to go, fixing your hair always makes you feel better. These past few months of working at home have taught me that sometimes the most important person you dress up for is yourself and you should always find the time to do something with your hair.
Recently, I was reminded again that my beauty routine could use a little help and that help came in the form of two bottles that arrived in a beautifully wrapped package dropped off on my doorstep. The package was direct from Misikko, the experts in hair care who supply the pros (and the amateurs, such as myself) with top quality tools and beauty products. Misikko carries a huge variety of name brand and professional styling tools including flat irons, hair dryers, curling irons, hair care products, makeup and even some skin care items that they ship to professional salons and consumers. The Misikko site even lets you compare tools directly on their website by brand or rating, helping you find the exact tool that is right for you.
I got the opportunity to try out two of those professional hair care products Misikko offers, the Hana Shine Shield and the CHI Silk Infusion, and it has inspired me to spend a little more time on me – and on my hair. The two products are perfect for using together as a full hair routine, or you can use either one alone for great results. Because I wanted to see some dramatic results, I decided to shampoo and condition my hair like normal and then use both products together the first time.
I was a little worried that the two products might be a bit much for my baby fine and thin hair, but was really surprised by how healthy and soft my hair felt after using them. Just a few drops of each massaged into my damp hair really went a long way towards taming my mane and making it extra smooth and silky even after heat styling. In fact, I found that using both products together actually made it easier to dry my hair and then straighten it, a benefit I hadn’t been anticipating.
I let my sister try the two products out as well so she could see how they work and she agreed her hair was noticably softer and shinier and made her hair feel lighter. She also said she noticed her hair felt fuller and the added texture from the products was really nice with her fine hair. After trying many other shine enhancing products and heat therapy products that weighed my hair down and made it feel greasy, I can absolutely agree that the Misikko styling products had the opposite effect and made my hair feel lighter and even fuller.
The CHI Silk Infusion comes in a small, 2oz bottle, proof that a little really does go a long way. It contains no alcohol and helps protect you hair against thermal styling damage while giving you silky soft locks.
Farouk CHI Silk Infusion, 2oz, Price: $12.99:
Leave in, alcohol free reconstructing treatment
Enriched with pure natural silk, wheat and soy proteins
For soft manageable hair with incredible shine and no build up
Protects the hair against thermal styling and environment
The Hana Shine Sheild comes in a larger 6oz bottle, but is still used very sparingly. The Shine Shield is also a leave-in conditioning treatment that protects against thermal styling, but has an added benefit of removing buildup caused by other hair care products. Besides leaving hair feeling clean and silky smooth, it also smells great.
Hana Shine Shield, 6oz, Price: $29.99:
Lightweight leave-in conditioning therapy
Designed to protect and restore both hair and scalp from environmental and styling stress
Jojoba absorbs quickly without a greasy feel for thorough deep conditioning
Jojoba naturally dissolves soil, removing build-up from other styling products to leave hair clean & supple
Jojoba naturally excels at thickening keratin layers, bringing out your hair's natural color overtones, highlights and brilliance
Periodic use over time is proven to advance the quality of your hair & the health of your scalp
I would highly recommend checking out both the CHI Silk Infusion and the Hana Shine Shield and even buying them together at a discounted rate through the Misikko site to protect against the inevitable winter frizz and styling damage. Hard to beat super shiny, silky smooth hair, even if the only place you have to be is cozy on your sofa.
While you are checking out the Misikko site, you should also take a look at a CHI hair straightener or professional hair dryer or two and get additional discounts for buying them together. While I currently have my eye on one of their awesome travel irons, there are dozens more styling tools I would love to have – whether I'm Cozy At Home or on the road.
