Product Review—Hair: L’Occitane Aromachologie Repairing Hair Care Collection is a Naturalista Must-Have
I like to keep things simple. I am forgetful, a tad klutzy at times and still aspiring to reach a Martha Stewart level of organization. In short, I need simplicity in my life especially when it comes to my hair routine. Some naturals spend countless hours on detangling, conditioning and styling sessions and countless dollars on products. Natural hair care means something very different to me; it means that my hair is cleansed, conditioned, moisturized and styled in a minimal amount of time and cost.
For my most recent wash day, I invited the usual suspects to the party: a gentle shampoo, conditioner, oil and styling product. Now that my hair is colored, I chose to use a product line that’s formulated to be gentle, nourishing and color-preserving. I used L’Occitane Aromachologie Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner and followed up with L’Occitane Aromachologie Radiance and Color Care Mask.
Here are the details about L’Occitane Repairing products:

L’Occitane Aromachologie Radiance and Color Care Mask:
The rich, creamy Radiance & Color Care Mask for color-treated hair is formulated with a botanical blend of five essential oils (geranium, palmarosa, bergamot, rosemary and cedar), as well as grape seed extract, to help keep color from fading. With a melting texture, the formula detangles hair, leaving color vibrant and hair soft, shiny and easy to manage. Additionally, UV filters help protect your hair color against the sun’s harmful rays.
The Repairing Conditioner did exactly what it said it would do. It helped repair my hair. Colored hair is prone to dryness and breakage due to the fact that the hair cuticle is lifted to deposit the color during processing.
The Radiance and Color Care Mask gave my hair even more nourishment. I used it as my deep conditioning step to give my hair an extra moisture boost. My hair was absolutely silky and smooth after I rinsed out the essential oils mask.
This is why I love L’Occitane:
Although the price range of this product is about twice as much as I would usual spend on hair care, it is worth it. The products are formulated to care for your hair by smoothing the hair shaft and infusing hair with 5 essential oils. Also, these products are like aroma therapy in the shower; their scent is so soothing and relaxing. The results I got with this combination of products in incredible. My hair was so soft, curls so defined and frizz was non-existent even right out of the shower!
Even my twist out looked incredible! I got so many compliments on it, I even got asked if it was a weave.
I give all three L’Occitane products 5 blings for product effectiveness, results, and the aroma therapy-like scent. Even the packaging is cute. Each of these products comes in a distinctive green container with a pink label.
