Sachajuan Hair Care Review

It has definitely been a moment since I wrote anything about hair or hair care. The truth is I am super low maintenance with my hair. I just do the basics and I am done but I don’t think that’s the best. These past few months I have changed up my hair care routine and cared for my hair in general a bit more than usual. My hair is an afro texture which I adore as it has coils and curls. If you are into afro natural hair, you may have heard of the classifications. I am not sure what the system is called but it uses numbers and letters. I have 4b and 4c texture which basically means my hair has some tighter curls and coils and looser ones. That’s the basic bumf of my hair texture. Many people with afro hair may also have dry hair because the tight curls/coils  sometimes makes it difficult for water, oils and other nutrients travel up easily through the hair. However, there are many ways to ensure that this does not happen but that's another post for another day. My hair is definitely dry so I always opt for moisturising formulas in hair care. Although my hair could get quite dry if I don’t give it a lot of love, its actual texture is  really soft (I know it's hard to believe as it is dry).  That’s just a little history about my hair so you can understand how delighted I have been with the Sachajuan Hair Care Products I have been trying since last year. I was super lucky to be sent a large selection of products which I absolutely love. I am currently obsessed with Scandi beauty brands as they are simply amazing.

Sachajuan Hair Care Overview
I am sure many people would have heard about Sachajuan at some point especially if you watch YouTube or read blogs. Their Ocean Mist is a favourite among many and now that I have tried their products, I can understand the obsession. The hair care brand was founded in 20004  by Sacha Mitic and Juan Rosenlind. They are professional hairdressers with a vast experience in hair styling and fashion both in Sweden (their home country) and around the globe. Before 2004, they had already opened their popular Hair Salon in 1997 which looks absolutely incredible and I would love to visit whenever I am in Sweden. Apparently, it was a former Art Gallery which they renovated into a hair salon and it looks so gorgeous and very Instagramable. You can check out their salons here. The Sachajuan's essence is about simplicity and function in perfect harmony with quality and function. Their essence is totally captured in their products (even down to their packaging) and the experience you feel when using them. The active ingredients and technology behind their products is called the "Ocean Silk Technology". This technology involves extracting valuable proteins and minerals from Sea Algae and combining them with other active ingredients to develop outstanding products. I absolutely love their story which you can check out here.

You all know me and my love for packaging  and presentation which is everything to me and more. I absolutely love the minimalist packaging of all the Sachajuan products.  They just look very aesthetically pleasing and very practical at the same time. Another reason I love the packaging is that they are unisex so they are suitable for all genders. Majority of thee Sachajuan products are housed in sturdy plastic bottles (some come with pumps which I always love). A few of them are housed in glass bottles e.g. the Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume and the Overnight Hair Repair. The Overnight Hair Repair just looks too beautiful to just be hair care.  I can’t think of anything else to say except that it’s one of the best hair packaging I have ever owned or used. I received 6 products which include: The Intensive Repair Shampoo*, Intensive Repair Conditioner*, Hair Cleansing Cream*, Hair Repair*, Protective Hair Perfume* and Overnight Hair Repair*. I feel extremely lucky and grateful to have been sent such an array of impressive products which I have enjoyed using through the year.

Sachajuan Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner*// Link // £20
I already mentioned my hair is dehydrated and quite dry so I was very delighted to see this shampoo and conditioner labelled as Intensive Repair.The Sachajuan Intensive Repair range uses their patented Ocean Silk Technology combined with UV protectants to provide maximum protection and intensive care. The shampoo and conditioner come in 250 ml bottles which may sound small but I need the littlest amount for my entire head. I usually section my hair into four little sections/buns as it’s the easiest way to avoid any tangling. The Intensive  Repair Shampoo* (£20) is slightly creamy and lightly lathers which I prefer. It almost feels like I am co-washing my hair as it has the same softening effect as using just a conditioner. It smells absolutely divine like I have been playing at the seaside. I just work the shampoo through the four sections and rinse it off. I am a huge fan of this shampoo because it cleans my hair with minimal effort. I am particularly pleased that it does not strip my hair and it is one of the best I have tried (it's not a sulfate-free formula but it feels/works exactly like one). Once I am done with shampooing, I follow up with the Intensive Repair Conditioner* (£22) which is very similar to the shampoo. It smells so lovely and I love the way it hugs my hair. As the name suggests, it is an intensive repair conditioner so it is designed to provide an intense hydration and repair to the dry and dehydrated hair like mine. I leave this on for a little while before rinsing off and the softness I get afterwards is absolutely amazing.

Sachajuan Hair Cleansing Cream*// Link // £28
I don't wash my hair everyday like many people do because it is mainly in protective styling e.g brainds, extensions, etc . However, I do aim to wash it every week (I know it sounds gross but it just works well for my hair). If you have an afro, you would understand that washing your hair everyday is not the best for our hair type. Anyway, I digress as usual. However, it is different with my hair extensions. I don’t deep wash and condition them every week but I ensure I clean them. One way to do this effectively is using the Sachajuan Hair Cleansing Cream which is such a joy to use both on my natural hair and extensions. As the name suggests, it feels like a cream that you apply normally to the hair. I do feel like it combines the effectiveness of shampoo and conditioner hence the name cleansing cream. It is the quickest way to refresh your hair without going the whole hog of washing and conditioning. I love that it comes in such a lovely big bottle complete with a pump. If you prefer to wash your hair every day but you can’t be bothered, this is your guy. It is quick, easy and provides the same freshness as freshly washed hair. It removes any grease that may be lurking around from hair products and I am really pleased I got a chance to test it out. I think it is actually the best for my hair extensions because it keeps it clean without taking away any of its natural lustre (as it does not grow from my scalp so no nutrients).It may seem pricey but you are getting 500 ml worth of product and believe me, it lasts for a super looooong time.

Now, this is the little magic bottle that knocked me off my socks. The Sachajuan Hair Repair and my natural afro hair are best friends for real. My dry and dehydrated hair is now where to be seen after I have used this little gem. I use it straight after the Sachajuan Intensive Shampoo and Conditioner and I leave it for a good while so it works better. I just pop it on to the four sections of my hair and pop on a shower cap. Ideally, I would leave it on for 30 minutes or a little less if I am in a rush. Either ways, it has always yielded amazing results. I can’t put into words how it transforms my hair but it keeps it really, really soft, fresh and ready for any styling. My curls are popping and looks so fresh. If you have an afro or curly hair, you would absolutely love how it refreshes your curls and I wish I could leave it on my hair forever but alas! I have to rinse it out . I love using this product a lot and the general look of my hair is so much better.

Sachajuan Hair Protective Perfume // Link //£40
Isn't it the most delightful thing to have a perfume specifically created for the hair? Hands up if you have ever used a regular perfume on your hair? No hands, just me then. Well, I do have to admit I may have spritz my hair (on a few occasions) with my regular perfume in the past because I wanted to smell sexy. As you would imagine, it's not the best for the hair at all. Well, the good news is those days are far behind me with the entry of the Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume. I wish I was good at describing scents but you all know it's not one of ,my strongest points but I would try. It smells exactly like a beautiful day in the ocean with a light smell of your favourite man's cologne. Very weird description but I guess we associate perfumes/scents with the feelings they evoke within us. It smells incredible and lasts for a super long time. It's quite concentrated so you need the littlest amount for your entire head. I am so pleased with the way it sprays its mist as it is evenly distributed around my hair. Sometimes, I am stuck in the kitchen cooking meals for the week and my hair smells less than impressive. I follow up with washing my hair and sprizing this lovely hair perfume and it just makes my hair smell so beautiful and sexy. Do you know the best part? It can also be used as a perfume for the body and I absolutely love it. It is not cheap at all; in fact it can be classified as quite expensive. However, it also has protective properties for the hair so it is not just a pretty face/bottle. At the time of taking this picture, I had used it for almost a month and yet I still had a lot left. This is one I know I would definitely repurchase because I feel very happy using it. I love it!!

Sachajuan Overnight Hair Repair// Link //£35
This is the latest addition to my stash and I think it looks the prettiest. It comes in a beautiful glass bottle complete with a pump which I adore. Now this is the perfect product for anyone who has very little time or is very busy. The Sachajuan Overnight Hair Repair is a gel product made from pure water and it is designed to build elasticity, strength and shine to  the hair. You remember the popular Ocean Silk Technology that Sachajuan use in their products? Well, the Overnight Hair Repair has the highest concentration/amount of this technology and you can tell because it leaves your hair looking and feeling so great. I am very delighted that it is fat free so it does not stain my bed or pillows as I use it at night. I am wearing some hair extensions at the moment but I have some of my hair out and it does an amazing job at keeping it healthy. You can choose to rinse it out in the morning but I don't and I think it feels better that way. It is quite pricey but it incorporates actual sea side plants (Rhodophycea, Hondrus Crispus and Algae) which are known for their hair protective and strengthening properties. I really like this product and it is another one on the repurchase list when it runs out.

Overall Thoughts
I love using the Sachajuan products as they work in whatever way I choose to wear my hair; afro, extensions, straightened out, etc.  It always has my back and that's why I am very impressed with the entire range. I am so lucky I got a chance too try out a wide array of their products and a massive thanks to the Mark McDonald Consultancy for hooking me up. I was a little sceptical about how effective they would be on my afro hair but I can tell you that they work so incredibly well.  Yes, they are may not be sulfate free but my hair has seen so much improvement and growth since I started my regime using them. I can't fault them at all and I would continue using them because I love the improvement I have seen with my hair. They work so well on all hair types and I am super impressed with them. That's pretty much it!! Have you tried any products from Sachajuan?
