After buying a few different Nexxus products, I was blown away and got in touch with the brand to bring more of Nexxus hair care to you. Let me be blatantly honest and say that I’m shocked I don’t hear about the brand more often because I haven’t been disappointed by a single Nexxus product yet. I’d even go so far as to say that Nexxus has revolutionized my hair care so I’m excited to share with you a few posts reviewing their products. First up is the Hydra-Light line with “weightless moisture for hair that flows.”
***Spoiler Alert: The name and slogan say it all.***
Hair type: Fine, dense, natural loose curls.
Moisture level: Normal-dry.
Heat usage: Blow-outs three times a week with flat ironing or curling 1-2 times a week.
About 90% of the time, I blow out my natural curls for a semi-voluminous style with a lot of movement. Because my hair is dense, products meant for fine hair often aren’t rich enough. And because my hair is fine, products for curly and/or thick hair tend to weigh it down. So imagine my surprise at finally trying something with enough balance for my hair’s needs. Of the in-shower Nexxus products I’ve tried so far, the Hydra-Light Shampoo and Conditioner are my favorite. I do tend to use a lot of styling product in my hair, so I have a preference for clear shampoos that can clean my hair without irritating my scalp. I then need a hydrating yet lightweight conditioner to nourish my locks without weighing them down. The Hydra-Light Shampoo and Conditioner foot the bill with ease.
Outside of the shower, I always use a leave-in product. The Leave-In Conditioning Foam is a new idea to me. Foams distribute more air with the product for a lighter application. The recommended usage from Nexxus is for 1-2 pumps on wet hair. I use 3-4 (sometimes more). But the Conditioning Foam really shines (literally…my hair is so shiny!) when I use it on dry hair as a refresher and to tame flyaways.
Last but certainly not least is the Root Lift Mist. If ever you are looking to give your roots a volume boost, pick this one up. It does a good job during a blowout, but more importantly I find it lifts dry hair on days two and three of a blowout to keep my hair looking fresh.
Price: $10-99 – $16.99 each
Summary: Nexxus Hydra-Light products bring movement to my hair leaving it hydrated but not heavy. It is lifted and full with a weightless feel. The Hydra-Light line is best suited for fine to medium hair in need of a volume boost.
