I’m thinking Florida completely missed the memo that it’s April because it went from 70 degrees to practically 90 overnight. Hotter weather means a lot more fun outdoors but it can also spell a serious curl disaster. If I’m not careful, my curls can get completely fried in the South Florida sun. When the folks from Motions reached out to take their new Treat and Repair hair collection featuring Color Care for a test drive, I didn’t realize I was getting my summer hair survival kit. Each product in this trio is formulated with coconut oil, vitamin E and amla to strengthen hair to treat hair from the inside out for strength and shine.
So how does this system work?
Step 1: Motions Color Care Sulfate Free Cleanser
This smooth and creamy cleanser works up an awesome lather sans the sulfates. It gets hair clean and leaves it crazy soft and ready for the next step. $7, target.com
Step 2: Motions Color Care Dual-Treatment Conditioner
Using the power of Keratin and a protein complex this rich conditioner repairs and moisturizes hair (even my fried curls after a good weekend outdoors!). Paying special attention to my ends, which has seen a lot of damage lately, I applied a good amount to my hair in sections. This conditioner has a great slip so detangling was super easy. Once all the tangles were out I rinsed it out and moved on to Step 3. $7, target.com
Step. 3 Motions Color Care Deep Moisture Mask
In my world, there is no such thing as too much conditioner so following up with a deep treatment mask was a special treat! Not as thick as the conditioner but packed with the amla, coconut and vitamin E oils all the same, I put it on section by section, racked it through my curls and covered it with a plastic cap. Then you can do a couple of chores around the house or sit under a warm dryer for up to 10 minutes – either way the mask does an awesome job of getting into hair and leaving it crazy soft and manageable. $7, target.com
After using these products exclusively for 3 weeks, my hair hasn’t been this soft and this strong is a very long time! My curls stayed moisturized, shiny and defined for up to week. The double conditioning did wonders for my hair, leading to less and less breakage and those crazy fairy knots. I also like it because it works for both natural and relaxed hair (and you have to love the price point for each of these too!)
