I’ve been having a love affair with Hyaluronic Acid for a couple of months now and I’m in LOVE.
I typically use HA after I’ve cleansed and toned my skin, before heavier creams. HA helps your skin absorb moisture leaving it looking healthier and more supple, while helping reduce the signs of fine lines and wrinkles. I can attest to this. My skin is looking fly.
I use The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid. At less than $8 a bottle, clean and cruelty free, it's really just all around awesome. It’s all the good things and none of the bad things.
Well, imagine my surprise when I started seeing adds for curly HAIR products containing Hyaluronic Acid. I mean it makes perfect sense. Curly hair needs extra moisture so the more it can retain the better. So does dry skin, thus, dry hair could also beneift from this train of thought.
The next hair wash day I gave it a try. After I had washed and conditioned my hair with Olaplex Step 4 and 8, I applied a small amount of HA to my clean damp hair. I focused mostly on my ends, because they are dry AF because I like to do my own hair. Don’t judge me. Then I cocktailed a pea sized amount of Olaplex Step 6 and 2-3 drops of Olaplex Step 7 together. I apply mostly to my ends. I then styled my hair with my Amika Styler and was AMAZED at how nice my hair looked. Typically after I blow dry my hair I have to go back over it with some sort of heat to really smooth it out.
The real test was then to try it on other people. Luckily my stunning guest agreed. I actually sent her message before I postedthis to see how she thought her hair felt. She loved it and HER HUSBAND EVEN NOTICED. So, IDK I think we’re onto something.
What are your thoughts?
