More with the ideas! —-> If you haven’t heard, there’s a Sephora VIB sale in November, so I’m highlighting some of my favorite makeup that you can find at Sephora this week.
I’m hell-and-gone addicted to this deep-repair shampoo and conditioner (they’re $25 each) from IGK Bad & Bougie.
The first day I took my hair out into the world after using Bad & Bougie…which, I’m sorry. Every time I see that name I feel like I’m talking about a poodle that needs to be walked.
Anyway! I ran into my HIIT instructor while running errands, and she said the nicest thing you can say to someone obsessed with maintaining a shiny mane. “Wow! Your hair looks like a really expensive drag queen’s wig!”
At that point, guuuurl, I knew it was true love.
Botany moment! — a plant oil called “amla” powers this power couple. It’s normally made by soaking dried amla fruit (otherwise known as Indian gooseberry) in oils, and it’s commonly used as an Ayurvedic hair treatment.
Types of hair it’s good for
- Tightly coiled
What it is
A deeply nourishing shampoo and conditioner to nourish, strengthen and protect — immediately and over time.
- Repairs even the most damaged hair
- Improves hair health and look
- Lightweight/non-greasy conditioning
If you want to know more…
Bad & Bougie Amla Oil Deep Repair Shampoo makes hair stronger immediately and overtime, instantly hydrates, softens, and enhances shine. It’s formulated with amla oil for nourishment and shine, coconut oil for hydration, and conditioning and a patented vegetable protein complex that works from within the hair shaft to build stronger and healthier hair. The lightweight formula deeply repairs even the most dry, damaged, color- or chemical-treated hair—without leaving hair greasy or weighed down.
What it is formulated WITHOUT
What else you need to know
- This product is cruelty-free, color safe with UV protection, and formulated without mineral oil, petroleum and gluten.
Here’s the thing: If you’re already a fan of shampoos and conditioners where a plant oil is the star ingredient, and you’re looking for a set that tames and flattens hair that’s rambunctious and naturally kinda big and wild (which is a common thing with these types of hair products), you won’t get that effect from Bad & Bougie. This shampoo and conditioner will *not* weigh your mane down in any form or fashion.
This combo is all about the bounce-bounce-bounce, and even though it’s hella hydrating, your hair retains big-@ss volume. MASSIVE volume. I love it, obviously, since I subscribe to a “bigger the hair, the closer I can get to achieving magical unicorn status” philosophy.
I have dry, wavy hair that I color to cover up the salt-and-pepper-grays (for now), so I’m always wanting — no, needing MOAR moisture. This combo leaves loads of hydration without weighing my hair down, and I especially like that after I rinse out the conditioner, the strands feel squeaky clean and moisturized, but not coated with three pounds of thick, heavy product.
Bonus: The amber and vanilla scent lingers but isn’t overpowering. Great stuff!
