Some things are almost too good to be true and when you find them, it is so exciting! That’s just how I felt when I saw Pureology’s mini gift sets for Holiday 2011. There are two different, travel-sized sets just $23.00 each that make a fabulous gift: Perfect4Platinum, and HydrateEach trio of minis comes in a truly cute, champagne colored zippered clutch with wristlet, that could easily hold some makeup as well as the hair products, or use it for an easy evening bag when you are traveling. While most hotels have shampoo, who knows what kind of “detergent” is in most of those bottles? Why risk ruining your hair from hotel-quality cleansers? Those of us who already know and love Pureology products won’t want to leave home without them. In truth, I have resorted to filling old hotel shampoo bottles with my own Pureology shampoos and conditioners – effective perhaps, but messy and time consuming. These minis come in pint-sized versions of the actual Pureology products, complete with easy to use flip caps.
My favorite new Pureology line is the Perfect4Platinum to offer TLC to blondes, and I use it even though I have red hair! The reason I love it so much is that it makes my hair feel so silky and youthful, smooth and lovely. It’s one of the most nurturing shampoos and conditioners I have ever found and it doesn’t weigh hair down, either. These products feature something called “Keravis,” a veggie protein that replenishes and plumps keratin gaps to strengthen the hair. The products also feature natural plant extracts of chamomile (to enhance suppleness and softness); lemon (to clarify and smooth the cuticle for more shine); and coriander oil to moisturize and boost shine as well. And as with all Pureology products, this line has their signature, Anti-fade Complex that is full of antioxidants and full spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreens, plus Vitamins C and E. I also like the fact that Pureology has ZeroSulfate shampoos that are also salt-free, so you can use them without damaging or stripping your hair, especially essential after some chemical treatments like anti-frizz. This trio of travel minis includes: Perfect4Platinum Shampoo (2 oz. petite) and Perfect4Platinum HairCondition (2 oz. petite) plus ColourStylist SilkBodifier Voluminizing Mousse (2.2 oz. petite in a pump can).
Another favorite of mine is Pureology’s SuperSmooth. SuperSmooth is the first Pureology system to feature a new, heat protective, ThermalAntiFadeComplex. This has natural sugars that form a protective barrier against heat styling damage that can sull and damage color-treated hair even more. It also has UVA/UVB full spectrum sunscreens to protect your color again fading, with Heliogenol and Vitamins C & E plus frizz-fighters that make dull, dry hair even more susceptible to sucking in moisture. This trio of holiday travel treats includes: o SuperSmooth Shampoo (2.0 oz. petite) and SuperSmooth HairCondition (2.0 oz. petite) plus ColourStylist StrengtheningControl Zero Dulling Hairspray (2.1 oz. petite in a spray can).
Whether you are planning to visit for the holidays, or you want to give a lovely gift to someone special, these minis make it easy!
There is also a fabulous, Pureology Holiday Hydrate Holiday Gift Set ($51.00) with full size Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner, a large, 11 oz. spray of Colour Stylist Strengthening Control hairspray (for color treated, or any hair, that won’t dull it) and a lovely elastic headband with a spray of large crystals, just for fun. I have reviewed Hydrate products before. They contain a “hydrating Micro-emulsion Technology” that delivers moisture from within (instead of just coating hair on the outside). Natural jojoba and shea butters with strengthening, multi-weight proteins of soy, oat, and wheat, are emollient and moisturizing. For the holidays, there is a gift set featuring full sizes of: Hydrate Shampoo (10.1 oz. retail) and Hydrate HairCondition (8.5 oz. retail), plus ColourStylist StrengtheningControl Zero Dulling Hairspray (11 oz. retail). You also get a silvery headband to show off your style!
