Hey Lovelies,

Sapphire K., your “Haute Hairess” — is ‘hair’ (pun intended) with some frugally chic, safe and natural beauty news! I stumbled upon a great hair care brand at Walgreens, the other day — and I must say, I am totally impressed! I recently purchased a BioInfusion Hydrating Shampoo — as I am always looking for paraben, chemical and sulfate free shampoos and conditioners! The shampoo promised to nourish, repair and replenish my tresses — with its gentle cleansing formula, containing wheat germ oil and lemongrass!

I was overall impressed with the outcome! My hair wasn’t dry, brittle or dull looking. The formula was indeed gentle enough to sit in my hair (in between shampoos — as I wash approximately 2-3 times before completing my hair ritual). I usually lather up and let it sit for at least 5 minutes — before washing it out and applying another dose or two! I do this because I have long (down to my lower back), super thick locks (dreads) and really like to get deep down between each twists –to remove all residue! Because of this mantra — I need my shampoos to be gentle, yet effective! I am an avid Peter Lamas and Carol’s Daughter fanatic — but at times, my pockets prefer the more frugal aspect of beauty! However, let’s just say — that more times than not –” one gets what they pay for!”

Upon rinsing — my hair had a nice shine to it! It smelt great and felt absolutely clean (I wash my hair weekly, but this formula is safe for daily usage). BioInfusion Hydrating Shampoo is great for all hair types! It retails for $7.99 at Walgreens, but I was lucky to get mine on sale for $4.99 (and the state of Delaware doesn’t have ANY sales tax *woo hooooo*).

I finished up with the BioInfusion Daily Volume Leave-in Conditioner spray It detangles hair, added additional shine and marvelous luster. The bottle says that it makes brush-throughs easier and smoother.  But what attracted me the most — was that it was safe for use on color treated hair! It is enriched with health botanical blends that also nourish, replenish and repair — leaving your hair naturally beautiful. It is super lightweight — and great for detangling (not a major concern for me as I have locks and don’t want to detangle my beautiful masterpiece). It boasts rich antioxidants of grape seed, pomegranate and white pine bark. This amazing leave-in also contains panthenol — for that super rich shine and luster I was talking about — also thanks to myrrh extract! Oh, did I mention that this brand is also cruelty free?

*Beauty Fixx — after shampooing tresses, spray on liberal amounts on already wet/damp hair and proceed with drying and styling (in my case — twisting)! DO NOT RINSE OUT this product!

I highly recommend this beautifying hair must-have (especially for the frugal beauty mavens)! I love you lovelies so much — I am also adding a chic “natural” hair care tutorial courtesy of Professional hair stylist Amita Moticka…enjoy!
