Beauty Beat: Original & Mineral’s 3-Step Facial…For Your Hair

August 7, 2012 • Beauty, Fashion Blog


Summer weather and products really take a toll on your hair! For the ultimate hair repair, Original & Mineral (O&M) prescribes a 3-step ‘facial’ for your hair that detoxifies, cleanses and moisturizes your locks back to its lustrous state. Powered by Australia’s most beneficial native natural and mineral actives, Original & Mineral’s shampoos and conditioners are free of harmful chemicals such as Parbens, MIT, Sulfates, and Triclosan. These breakthrough formulas and native ingredients put less stress on hair while ultimately improving, nourishing and protecting the hair.

STEP ONE: Detox with O&M’S Original Detox

Detox your locks with this exfoliating shampoo. Made with Australian River Mint and Peppermint Oil, the Original Detox dissolves deposits leftover from styling products, chlorine and natural oil build-up, which can make hair dull. Australian River Mint deeply cleanses without stripping essential oils, and Peppermint refreshes the hair and scalp with a cooling effect. Be warned, it doesn’t really lather.

STEP TWO: Cleanse with one of four of O&M’S shampoos

After you shampoo with the Original Detox, do a second round of shampooing for the ultimate shine with the Original Detox. Chose between formulas for normal hair, damaged and dry hair and fine hair. I tried the HYDRATE & CONQUER: Macadamia Oil and vitamin-rich Tasmanian Sea Kelp quenches dry and damaged locks with this hydrating shampoo. I loved the smell of coconut!

STEP THREE: Moisturize with O&M conditioners

Now that your hair is clean, it’s time to seal in the moisture and nutrients with your choice of texture-specific conditioner. Gently squeeze out excess water from the hair and apply the conditioner, focusing on hydrating the roots for a healthy shine.

My hair looked healthier immediately after one use. The whole kit will be coming on my next trip where I expect to do a lot of swimming. Now I have a trick for getting damaging chlorine out of my hair. I promise you will love this line of haircare.
