Hair Care - Review of REF Products


I am a fan of natural products because of the benefits they give. Therefore, I love using brands that incorporate natural ingredients to enhance the effectiveness of their products. Having had my hair recently permanently straightened, I have been having trouble with maintaining the smoothness and silkiness of it. I was recently quite lucky to get sent these products to review to suit my hair condition. 

REF, Stockholm Sweden is a brand that has a passion for embracing and promoting simplicity, sustainability and quality. They are driven by Swedish standards, which accounts for their name. Through the use of high-quality natural products such as quinoa, they are able to maximise the benefits in their products as well as follow their brand philosophy of using 100% vegan ingredients.

Intense Hydrate Shampoo & Conditioner:

Enriched with strengthening quinoa protein, organic coconut oil and colour preserve system these shampoo and conditioners are the keys to maintaining natural, healthy hair. The quinoa protein contains essential amino acids that assist in repairing, protecting and preserving natural beauty in hair. To provide deep hydration to the hair, REF combines organic coconut oil which contains fatty acids. Coconut oil also nourishes the scalp and helps hair grow longer and faster. The colour preserve system helps maintain hair colour for long lasting illuminating colour reflection and shine. The colour preserve system consists of sunflower seed oil, which contains oleic acid that helps stop breakage and stimulate hair growth as well as REF's anti-fade system. The anti-fade system works like a natural full spectrum UV helping preserve hair colour for long.

The shampoo is used first to help lather, cleanse and get rid of any dust that may be on the hair. It also helps add hydration to the hair by providing moist. The conditioner is used next and I recommend applying and distributing it evenly through the hair and leaving in for about 3-4 minutes. This helps the ingredients to settle in the hair.

Heat Protection:

Like the conditioner and shampoo, this heat protection spray is enriched with strengthening quinoa protein and colour preserve system to nourish the hair as well as provide a protective layer against heat. The spray has a soft, sweet scent that makes the hair smell have a summery feel. The spray also gelps give shine and light to the hair ensuring that hair looks natural all the time. The directions to use this are spraying evenly onto hair before the use of any heat. I recommend using it on damp hair before blow drying and on dry hair before curling or straightening.

Dry Shampoo:

This dry shampoo is such a life saver!! I use this when I feel lazy to wash my hair because it helps freshen up the hair by adding volume, firmness and texture without the need of washing. Again enriched with the strengthening quiona protein and colour preserve system this dry shampoo is honestly a must have, especially when travelling or camping. It also smells great which is a bonus if you want your hair to be feeling fresh. The directions to using this product is shaking the can well and then holding it 15-20 cm away from hair and spraying evenly.

All of these REF products can be purchased at most hair care stores and salons.

I hope you all enjoyed this review, let me know xx
