I would be lying to you if I said that I have been taking care of my hair the past several months. The truth is, between going a little blonder and the summer sun getting to my locks, my hair has been a bit dryer than usual. I am thankful to have had the opportunity to try out some of the products in the Playa Essentials line and I am even more excited to share their launch in Violet Grey!
For the past month, or so, I have been trying out a few products from the Playa line and I’m excited to share my thoughts with you. I have to be completely honest, I am kind of a hair product junky! I love testing out beauty and hair products, so when Shelby reached out to me to try these products, I had to say “Yes!”
Playa Summer Beach Hair
Not only was I impressed with the philosophy from Playa, but their products perform amazingly! When it comes to beach hair, the more natural the better. Playa stands by that in the choice of ingredients they use in their line. Unfortunately, in most cases, when you substitute healthy ingredients, you lose in the products ability to perform well. Thankfully, Playa honed in on both safety and performance. For that, I am here to say, “Thank you!” Being out in the sun, during the summer months, with color treated hair, can often lead to breakage and damage. Playa has created lightweight, hydrating products, that I am definitely on board with! Here’s the scoop…
I figured I would share these products, in the order in which I apply them. The Ritual Hair Oil is a lightweight hydrating oil that penetrates deeply to protect and restore moisture to your hair. I apply this directly into clean, wet hair and this helps keeps my ends hydrating and tames any frizzy fly-aways. Usually, I totally against anything with the word oil in it, but I love this oil. I had now idea just how damaging blonde coloring is for your hair, until I decided to add more to my hair! If you have oily skin and oily hair, like me, don’t be afraid of this oil. Not only does this oil prevent damage, but you can apply it to dry hair prior to heading to the beach or pool to protect from UV damage and chlorine!
Next up in my haircare routine is the Endless Summer Spray. I like to spray this in wet hair before I blow dry and it also is perfect for spray your hair after getting your perfect summer waves. I spritz this after I am finished curling to set all of my pretty waves in place. It allows for flexible movement whiles still holding the body and shape in place! Not only does this product add a pretty shine to your hair, but it also protects against harmful UV rays.
Lastly is dry shampoo! After having more color treatment, in my hair, I tend to only wash my hair every other day. I still happen to get an oil scalp, while my ends are quite dry. To combat the oil, and soak it up, I like to use dry shampoo. I love this dry shampoo because it soaks up oil the oil, smells amazing and doesn’t leave a ton of white residue. I simply spritz this onto sections on my scalp and shake it out. If my hair needs a little extra volume, I will spray it only other sections of my hair to give a little extra texture.
I hope that you have enjoyed this post and that you will give this brand a try. Playa’s products smell incredible, are created with only the best ingredients and perform amazingly. Also, can I say they have the chicest packaging? That might have been my first selling point! If you are interested in trying the line, I would highly recommend purchasing the Playa Hair Essentials Set, that includes their shampoo, conditioner, dry shampoo, the Endless Summer Spray AND the Ritual Oil! Please let me know if you have any questions about Playa and I can’t wait to hear how much you love these products too!
