We all know the importance of a regimin of great skin care products to keep our skin in tip top shape. We cleanse, exfoliate, treat, etc. You know, the works. But what if we used the same approach with our hair care? Well, I recently came across a couple of new hair care products that act like skin care, and this beauty junkie was immediately obsessed intrigued. Take a look and see what I mean.


Ok, so technically primer isn’t skin care, but rather a makeup item, but I friggin’ love the idea of this and had to include it. Oh, yes. I’m talking primer for your hair. Living Proof Prime Style Extender, $20 is weightless and can be layered under your regular styling products. It claims to contain Living Proof’s “miracle molecule” OFPMA that smoothes and corrects the hair cuticle, making your hair styles last twice as long.

It takes me some effort to get my coils to behave the way I want them to, so it’s always a bummer when my hard work starts to look not as fabulous as it  did on day 1. I don’t know about you, but if this stuff truly works and can make my twist-outs last longer, sign me up for a dozen bottles, lol.


I can’t overemphasise the benefits of regular exfoliation of your skin. If I don’t get those dead skin cells off my face, it’s Blackhead City – Population: Me. Your scalp is skin too (duh, lol), so it makes sense to rid it of dead skin cells, too. Which is why Ouidad Mediterranean Bay Leaf Exfoliating Hair & Scalp Treatment, $36 is such a great idea. This exfoliating cream contains natural exfoliating AHAs like sugar cane, lemon and apple extracts, and natural bamboo for manual exfoliation. The dual-action helps clear scalp and follicles of build-up and improves delivery of nutrients to hair roots, and inspires healthier hair growth. Seriously, why didn’t I think of this?

Ouidad has some pretty cool fall product releases (I hear many a natural haired girl is going crazy for their new Mongongo Oil) and this one is no exception!

So, what do we think of these skin care-like products? Would you try them? What other products like these have you seen or tried?
