Hair care should not be difficult. For a lot of us, maintaining the health of our hair is a significant part of our daily routines, and having tools to make the art of doing hair easier, makes the journey all the more worthwhile.

For me, it’s also essential to have both natural and gentle products that tend to my number of hair probs. That’s why I’ve been loving Luna Nectar for my daily and restorative hair care. This 100% clean and sustainable beauty brand provides vegan, cruelty-free, and performance-driven hair, lash, and brow boosting serums, as well as skincare, and trying out a few of their hair essentials has been one of the best decisions that I’ve made this month. Luna Nectar just relaunched and it’s making skin and hair care even more fun with its ethereal-themed products. Plus, the results are *chef’s kiss.*

My hair is pretty straightforward. Like clockwork, it’ll typically last one week after wash day, before oiling up on its 7th day of being straightened. I haven’t always had super oily hair, so this change in wash frequency has definitely propelled me to seek out products that improve my hair’s longevity. And although I like the idea of fresh hair every week, the more heat and scalp agitation concerns me just a bit. A solution: Luna Nectar’s Mars Sand Volumizing Adaptogenic Dry Shampoo.

Previously in my mind, dry shampoo and black hair never mixed. I’ve attempted to use dry shampoos in the past, but they’ve always left my hair overdried and starchy with a powdery white cast. Hesitant at first, I tried Luna Nectar’s Mars Sand dry shampoo and it’s definitely black hair-friendly. This dry shampoo disappears into the hair while boosting its volume, freshness, and scent for on-the-go styling. I’ve been using this dry shampoo in between washes, and it has been an easy and effective tool to temporarily remedy my week-old hair.

Mars Sand is made with nutrient-rich ingredients including Horsetail and He Shou Wu that have been widely used as herbal remedies for skin, hair, and internal healing since ancient Roman and Greek times. This dry shampoo also consists of antioxidants that aid in hair growth and the reduction of aging hair fibers. Despite its name, dry shampoo doesn’t necessarily clean the hair; however, it does soak up oil and grease making the hair feel and appear cleaner. After using Mars Sand, my hair looks fresher and I can go about a couple of days more with the dry shampoo-ed locs without having to reapply. I love that Mars Sand is lightweight and not only resets the hair’s appearance, but it also helps improve the hair’s overall health.

If you’re experiencing thinning or excessive shedding, Luna Nectar’s Atmosphere Hair Density & Scalp Serum just might be the remedy you need. This leave-in overnight serum is formulated with peptides, vitamins, and herbal extracts that achieve the look of fuller, denser, and thicker hair. With my hair type, I tend to stay away from heavy oils, so I love that this serum is lightweight and non-greasy, yet also concentrated with nutrients including Aloe Vera and He Shou Wu. To use, apply and massage in a few drops throughout the scalp, once a night. Luna Nectar says results can be seen in as early as two to three weeks!

One of my favorite ingredients found in my wash regimen is apple cider vinegar (ACV).   Perfect for dandruff and oily hair, apple cider vinegar is antimicrobial, rich in minerals, and helps balance the hair’s pH. Luna Nectar’s Antarctic Hair Shine Glass Rinse is an apple cider vinegar-based hair rinse for shinier, more tamed, and cleaner hair. I’ve been using this rinse for the past month now and it’s a game changer. This rinse breaks down strong hair gels and oils super well, and I don’t have to worry about any sticky residue. Made for all hair types, I find this rinse particularly helpful for removing product build up and dandruff, while conditioning the hair for easy detangling, and a super silky finish after straightening.

To use, I apply the foamy Antarctic Hair Shine Glass Rinse after shampooing my hair. I use about 2 pumps per quarter of my hair, and massage the foam all throughout my hair and scalp. I leave it in for about 3 minutes, then I rinse and follow up with a conditioner. Not just for oily hair, ACV is also a key ingredient to reviving dull, brittle, and frizzy hair. Also included on the ingredient list are green tea and iron-rich pea peptides that, combined, help to stimulate and strengthen follicle stem cells supporting healthy hair growth. 10/10 would recommend!
