I always thought the reason my hair looked freaky good after hitting up the salon was the stylist. I assumed the end result of soft volume was willed out of my hair by her talents. This is true to a degree. Fullness most certainly comes from the deft manipulation of that hot air musket they call a blow dryer. But logically the softness can’t be them, it must be the products they use. You probably already knew this. I just didn’t get it. On that note…
Seven Shampoo & Conditioner
Recently, I was sent a handful of Seven hair products. Immediately after using the shampoo and conditioner, I made the decision to never again buy a shampoo from Target and commit myself entirely to luxury hair products. Seven Lustre shampoo made my hair feel and look bright, healthy and soft, as if I had just left a salon. It is such a ridiculous difference from regular ‘ol stupid affordable shampoo. After using Seven for over a month, I have noticed more things… it eliminated frizz, static, and I don’t need to wash my hair as much. I can easily go two days without a greasy noggin whereas before Seven, day two wasn’t looking very good. It also seems to eliminate dandruff and make my scalp healthier. I have a dandruff shampoo that I use every other week when I see flakes, but I have not had to use it once while using Seven shampoo. I am elated. Lastly, I love that the shampoo bottle has a black cap, and the conditioner has a white cap to easily distinguish the two bottles. I’m the type of person who often grabs the wrong thing. I appreciate the helpful color coding.
Seven Dry Shampoo
I have tried numerous dry shampoos and many of them have made my hair gross, and always inspires white flakes. Seven’s dry shampoo refreshes my hair, makes it manageable, and there was not one sighting of a white flake. I have been very pleased with it, but it didn’t seem to take away the shine of a greasy scalp, so I will have to give it a miss. My go-to Dry Shampoo is still Klorance Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair.
Seven Seal Lotion
When I received all the Seven hair products I made sure to do a thorough testing process. I used all the products in one sitting, and then used them separarety and so on. This is how I discovered I like the Seven Seal Lotion just by itself. The Seal Lotion is a prep product that is supposed to seal the cuticle and lock in moisture before using styling products like mousse, gel or what-have-you. Honestly, I couldn’t tell if it was doing its job when I was using styling products, but I adore the seal lotion by itself. Most days, I wash my hair with the Seven shampoo, and simply spray down my wet locks with the seal lotion. It adds to the overall affect of weightless, but substantial hair – if that makes sense. Basically, it seems to create even more of a healthy appearance.
Update: Three years later, Seven Seal Lotion is still my go-to product for protecting my hair from the heat. To read about all my current favorite beauty products, check out my post on The Best Beauty Products Ever.
My product reviews are my honest and personal opinion. I never accept payment for product reviews although I am given the sample to keep. If I am sent something that is unimpressive or boring I don’t write about it.
