Not Your Mother’s: Beach Babe Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner #Review #NYMbeachBabe

I’m always game in trying out a new products for my hair because the more I tend to try, means I usually find something better than what I am currently using. I am not faithful to any brand but I will stick it out if my hair improves or I notice significant changes in how my hair feels. Having really long hair means I need to make sure what I use leaves no build-up and/or damages my hair because I’m already pretty good about how much heat from hair styling devices I expose it to.

NYM Brands, known as Not Your Mother’s hair care products, offers high quality products with the idea that they remain affordable. They want consumers to experience “on trend” products to everyday cleansers and conditioners, but again at a fair price point. I can respect that because price tag does not always equate performance.

I was sent two bottles from the NYM Beach Babe collection, a conditioner and a shampoo to try out.

Retail Price Point: $7.00 for each, so if you purchase the duo, it’s $14.00. Pretty fair price point!  You can also find the duo on Amazon for $16.85 shipped free with Prime membership

Verdict:
What makes it a beach babe was my first inquiry? The duo features ingredients like sea kelp and coconut oil, two products I am familiar with and currently use. The shampoo and conditioner is suppose to allow the user to achieve a beach tousled waves look but without depleting the hair from nutrients. Many volume adding products dry out your hair, so you may have gorgeous waves that are swept beautifully by the breeze, however your hair is left starving. The more you use the volumizer product, the more the hair dries out. Not with NYM and this is because this Beach Babe collection offers moisturizers. Your hair actually improves the more you use this product, do to the softening agents (oils) in the formula. Coconut oil is something I already use on my hair, eyebrows and lashes and I am very familiar with the benefits. I love them! It goes beyond the scent but what I love about this oil, is it cleanses out causing no build-up when washed and a little goes a long way when it comes to seeing results.

The Shampoo– Easy to achieve a lather and you just wash like with any shampoo, making sure to clean the scalp and being softer as you reach the end of your hair. After rinsing, my hair felt clean but remained soft to the touch. I love the scent and it was both welcoming to my hair and a little aromatherapy (because it made me smile) why I washed my hair.

The Conditioner– You leave the product on your hair for 2 to 3 minutes to achieve the best results. Again the more you use the products, the better the results with time. After I rinsed my hair from the conditioner, which comes out easily, my hair now feels ultra-soft.

I was kind when drying and I use a micro-towel to absorb the wetness out and I use a soft squeezing method, never rubbing hair strands against hair strand. I then allowed my hair to air dry a little before using a hair dryer for 5 minutes. My hair was soft and zero frizz due to the wonderfully balanced moisturizers in NYM’s products. I love them and love the price tag too.
