Born in the U.S.A. – Hair Care

Today I would like to focus on some lesser known and some better known brands born in the U.S.A. and now I want to talk about hair!

John Freida ( has done a great shampoo recently: Luxurious Volume Touchably Full Shampoo for Colour-Treated Hair. I have just had highlights put in my hair so appreciate that this is a volume booster with the added benefit of being gentle enough for colour-treated hair. How does it work? The shampoo is formulated with a specialised volume polymer that adds space between hair strands. I did notice that when I used this by itself without putting in any elixers, oils or serums in my hair afterwards that my hair had a bouncy, soft feeling to it.

Let’s keep talking about hair because there is another brand from the U.S.A. that I love. One reason is because of their sexy and bold packaging and I have to admit that I am sucker for packaging so this one ticks off that box for me. But it also proves to be more than cool packaging as there is a particular product in the range I want to talk about.

I love Sexy Hair in particular I like Soya Want It All 22 in 1 Leave in Treatment. My hair is really fine and I have found this to be a great product that doesn’t weigh it down and make it greasy like other leave in oils and serums. You simply spray it in damp hair and comb through. With soy, cocoa and argan oil, it doesn’t weigh hair down at all and I would highly recommend it for fine hair.


Satinique is another brand made by Amway from the U.S.A. and I have the Dual Defend Spray for environmental and thermal protection. I don’t like using styling products on my hair and I use this to refresh my naturally wavy hair in between hair washes as well as for added protection against UV rays and environmental damage. It contains humectants, emollients and sunscreens to help prevent dryness and brittleness and strengthens hair by up to nine times. I think it’s great for refreshing beach waves without using styling products.

The Dual Defend Spray is £ 17.05 RRP and can be purchased online at


Another brand from the U.S.A. that I have recently discovered is Unite Luxury. This brand has a huge celebrity following, including Victoria Beckham, Eva Longoria, Sienna Miller, Demi Moore, etc. I have the U Luxury Shampoo, Conditioner and Oil. The products are made with a decadent blend of Crushed Pearl, Hawaiian White Honey and Pure Argan Oil and are sulphite, paraben, gluten, sodium chloride, DEA and MEA-free and are Vegan and colour safe. The oil acts as a thermal protector as well.


I am really excited about this range as it combines high quality European ingredients with the cutting edge of American technology, the benefits of which include moisturisation and antioxidant protection alongside rich minerals and amino acids which strengthen and reinforce hair. The products are pricey but if you have damaged hair it might be worth it to consider these.

U Luxury Shampoo £27.95 at Urban Retreat

U Luxury Conditioner £29.95 at Urban Retreat

U Luxury Oil £30.00 at Urban Retreat
