When I think of the bamboo plant, my mind normally drifts off and I imagine the cutest little panda bears crunching on these tall green stalks or that office plant that you place on your desk to bring you peace and serenity throughout your work day. But what if I told you there was more to these shoots than what meets the eye?
That's right! There is so much more than what meet the eye. Bamboo is no longer just a panda's favorite food or your first class ticket to your happy place. Bamboo is actually the one of the most exciting beauty secrets ever! To my surprise, I found that Bamboo leaves and stalks contain a rich source of silica, which is a key element in the formation of collagen. When bamboo oil is extracted from the plant, it can be added to a multitude of beauty products. The silica from bamboo oils contains anit-oxidants to reduce wrinkles and naturally gives your skin a healthy glow. When added to shampoo, bamboo oil will remove dead skin cells and product residue, and promotes quick hair growth.
After finding an overwhelming amount of information on the perks of using bamboo oil, I was excited to try HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening Collection. The HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening collection features 4 items: Bamboo Oil Strengthening Shampoo, Bamboo Oil Strengthening Conditioner, Bamboo Oil Strengthening Deep Conditioner, and Bamboo Oil Strengthening Shine Treatment. All four products are free of parabens, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol, and artificial colors. Being a natural gal with fragile 4a/4b type hair, I need for my hair products to be as free from drying agents as possible.
We all know there are so many product lines in the market that claim they do wonders for hair so I put HASK to the test. HASK sent me their Bamboo Oil Strengthening Collection to review and since this is my wash week, I'm seeing if the proof is in the pudding. Since my big chop, I've been on the hunt for a shampoo and conditioner duo to strengthen my fragile hair, let's see if I've found a winner...
