We're sharing samples of the new Nexxus Youth Renewal products. I've been testing this shampoo, conditioner and elixir this summer. As I've been training for triathlons, I've been a little rough on my hair.
My hair has been tugged into ponytails and twisted into swim caps. I was thrilled to give it a treat with this line from Nexxus. This is the first anti-aging range of hair products that combats eight signs of aging hair: volume loss, breakage, roughness, less shine, dryness, brittleness, unruliness and loss of color vibrancy. Other than the volume loss (I have really thick hair) the other seven are big concerns of mine.
I keep my hair long (my thick hair looks bushy when it's short). The shampoo is light and gentle. I found the conditioner was rich and left my hair smooth. For a bit of a deeper treatment, I tried the elixir. Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Elixir is a leave-in treatment. I put it on right after the shower and then wrap my hair in a towel. According to Nexxus, the elixir helps rebuild hairs strength and reduce breakage.
I've been swimming for distance 2x a week. Plus many more dips with the kids. So my hair always seems to be wet in the summer. Here are my tips to keeping my hair young and healthy looking:
1. Wet hair and comb in conditioner BEFORE swimming laps. It helps protect your hair.
2. Wear a swim cap whenever possible
3. Skip the blowdryer when you can and opt for air drying your hair.
4. Use hair bands that prevent tearing the new fabric ones are fantastic.
5. Once a week set aside time to deep condition your hair. I do this on Sunday evening and leave in the conditioner longer.
