Maddie Puts Squid Ink on her Hair
It's all in the name of beauty!
While I was getting my hair done this past week, my hairdresser suggested I try a different shampoo and conditioner - made of SQUID INK.
Yes, ink from a squid. I was like...wait, what? But turns out, it's AMAZING.
It's called Jellua, and it smells and feels fantastic on your scalp. Turns out, "Jellua" is actually Korean for "it's the best." The ingredients include:
Morus Alba Bark Extract
Oils of Lavender & Orange
Positive Ion of Silicon
When I used the Active Shampoo for the first time, my scalp tingled in delight. It reminded me of tea tree oil shampoos that I have used in the past...like a minty fresh feeling. Which makes sense, because tea tree is an ingredient in the Jellua shampoo.
I have to admit, I was a little intimidated at first because last time I used tea tree shampoo, my head broke out in a type of rash. I have super sensitive skin, but that wasn't an issue with the Jellua. I followed it up with the Repair Treatment Cream Conditioner and it felt like my hair was literal butter.
That's all fine and dandy...but what about when my hair was nice and dry? I'm all down for trying new products, but how it leaves my hair and skin feeling after the shower is what I'm most concerned about. I loved how Jellua left my hair feeling. It was sleek and soft.
Now, I don't plan on using this every single day. Since it's a stimulating shampoo and conditioner, I've decided I'll only use it a few times a week. Unfortunately, I'm one of those people that has to wash my hair every. single. day. because of how oily it gets. Ah, the perks of having fine hair.
When I'm not using Jellua, I'm using my Redken Color Magnetics, which I also HIGHLY recommend. I can't stress enough how important it is to get quality hair products for your hair, ESPECIALLY if you're paying tons of money to get it done by a professional regularly. It's the upkeep and care that's going to keep your hair looking fabulous in the long-run, so spend a few extra dollars and get the good stuff. Your hairdresser knows what they're talking about.
In the meantime, try Jeulla! It was about $30 for the shampoo and conditioner combo, which isn't bad, in my opinion. If you're like me, you can use it every so many days in between your normal shampoo and conditioner. Thank me later.
