NIUCOCO Saved My Hair....Really!

As you know I got back from a Caribbean cruise about 2 weeks ago. It was AMAZING. The weather was fantastic and my husband, the kids and I spent hours every day swimming in warm ocean and soaking up the sun. It was bliss. Except for my hair. That part was not blissful. I have naturally wavy hair that doesn't love humidity and that I regularly abuse with a blow dryer and flat iron.  By the time I got home my hair was a hot mess.  For real.

Right before I left on my trip I had been contacted by Niucoco to give their hair products a try and get real about my hair woes.   I figured getting back from my vacation where I knew my locks would take a beating was an excellent time to start.  Before I fill you in on the state of my hair today, let me tell you about Niucoco from their website....

NIUCOCO products far exceed the performance of salon brands. Combining extravagant premium essentials and the magic of pure coconut oil, our formulas smooth the hair follicle, boost natural color and shine, and bring hair back to health, no matter what your tress type (Colored & Chemically Treated, Dry & Damaged, Coarse & Curly, Fine & Fragile and Naturally Straight Textures).
Backed by industry professionals and a cult following of real people who have tried and now swear by the brand,NIUCOCO products are sulfate-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, and gluten-free. They are also 100% vegan and contain no artificial fragrances making them safe for daily use.

Sounds great right?  I was also pretty intrigued that the three creators saw a big gap in the market for solid products that didn't contain toxic ingredients and created their own.  Their philosophy is "Everyone deserves great hair" and I couldn't agree more...particularly when I arrived home from paradise looking like a disaster. 

Are you all ready?  This is me after our 4 hour flight and 5 hour drive back to home sweet home after I had fried my hair in the sun and surf.  Here goes...

I know.  I can't even believe I am posing this here.  Very, very bad!

For the past 2 weeks I have been using the "Dynamic Great Hair Trio" which is comprised of a shampoo, conditioner and hair serum.  First off, the coconut smell is dreamy and I adore it.  The shampoo is not too sudsy which I think is a plus and the conditioner is nice and light and doesn't weigh my hair down.  Conditioner is a big balancing act for me. I clearly need it (ahem...see above!) but with my waves if it is too heavy it leaves my hair flat.  The Niucoco conditioner was the perfect balance for me.  The Renewing Hair Serum is amazing.  Really amazing.  A couple of drops and my hair is soft, loses the frizz and smells like a dream.

I think the best testament to my results so far are some pictures I took today.  My regime was wash, condition and a couple of drops of the hair serum.  I did not blow dry or use any other styling products (please excuse my sub par selfies....I am working on that!)....

Better, right?!  My curls are not weighed down, are much more defined and that dry "hay" look I had going on is being soothed by the Nuicoco products. I am one happy gal.  This is after just under 2 weeks as well!  I can't wait to see what the coming weeks bring as I continue to use the products.  I am absolutely planning on sticking to this regime!

If you have any questions about how I used the products or why I ran around looking like I had a straw growing out of my head please comment below.  I love reading your comments and answering your questions!

I need this!! I wonder if it would help my frizz? It would be so nice to not curl/straighten my wavy & frizzy hair.

NIUCOCO chiming in here: yes it certainly would. Your hair just needs the proper hydration in order to cut down on the frizz reaction to humidity.
