My daughter likes to ship me TikToks with all the most recent meals tendencies, magnificence suggestions, and candy animal movies. It’s our bonding time and I look ahead to it very a lot. She likes to attend till she’s despatched me a bunch of them so we are able to sit on the couch and watch them for some time.
The different day, I opened one up and this lady was making an attempt one thing known as Wonder Water — it’s a hair therapy and one I’d by no means heard of.
Now, simply to present you some background on me and my frizzy mane, I grew up within the ‘80s and ‘90s and loved my Sun-In, drowning my hair in lemon juice, and my VO5 hot oil treatments. In other words, I’d abuse my locks then assume I may appropriate the injury with some sizzling oil love.
When Frizz Ease hit the market and I may afford it, I used that shit each day.
And once I went to school, you didn’t simply stroll right into a retailer and purchase a straightening iron (gasp). They didn’t come out till a bit later, so I’d use the widest curling iron I may discover and try to attempt to style my wavy/frizzy hair (that I’d bleached with a two greenback bottle of hair dye from the grocery retailer) into one thing I’d see on the duvet of Vogue. Yeah, it by no means labored.
I suppose you would say I’ve tried all of the hair merchandise to try to get my hair good and easy and tame the frizz–each form of shampoo, conditioner, masks, and keratin therapy has been in my dry hair.
Now that I’m older and I don’t fry my hair with acids and store-bought bleach, it nonetheless needs to be all broken and hay-like so I would like to remain on high of it. Shit yeah, I’m going to strive something anybody says works — particularly if I can go to the drug retailer and get it for round $10.
If you’ve been dwelling underneath a rock (like I’ve apparently) and you might be new to Wonder Water, I’ve acquired a deal with for you: this shit works and was like nothing else I’ve utilized in my hair.
This is my hair earlier than utilizing Wonder Water. I all the time should hold it trimmed up as a result of my ends get so dry and tangly, particularly after a exercise. I’ve hair that feels wholesome for about 5 days after a trim, then that’s it– we’re again to brillo pad ends.
Since I used to be a virgin to Wonder Water and wished to make use of it appropriately, I did some analysis and went proper to the supply — L’oreal — who stated you wash your hair earlier than making use of.
After your scalp is scrubbed, you apply the water to the center of your hair, right down to your ends, operating your fingers in a zig-zag movement.
Okay, straightforward sufficient.
First, I seen how good this product smelled. It was gentle and floral and I already felt like my hair was more healthy simply from the scent.
I’d learn you permit it on for eight seconds solely and the water will regulate in line with your injury.
I seen my hair was out of the blue reworked into one thing that felt like cornsilk and I couldn’t cease touching it. The Wonder Water acquired foamy and my hair quadrupled in measurement. It acquired actually puffy, which let me comprehend it was working. It was extraordinarily satisfying and I used to be tempted to depart it in longer and maybe act out an intoxicating scene the place I emerge from the bathe with lengthy, shiny locks for all of the world to see. Then, I assumed higher of it and determined to stay to the 8-second script.
After rinsing, my hair felt so fantastic I wasn’t even certain if I wanted to situation it, however I did anyway.
My drying brush glided via my hair whereas I used to be drying it and it appears to be like higher than once I acquired a keratin therapy on the salon.
Since I’ve fantastic hair, I used possibly 1 / 4 of the bottle so I’ll have some leftover. However, when you have thicker, fuller hair, or curly hair, you’ll need to make use of extra.
Typically once I’ve used serums, oil therapies, or conditioners or masks which might be too heavy, you’ll be able to inform as a result of it appears to be like like I attempted to scrub my hair with bacon grease.
You don’t have to fret about that with Wonder Water as a result of, once more, these items adjusts to you. You actually can’t mess this up.
I’m past excited to strive a product and have it work for my hair. I’ll be utilizing this till the tip of time and I like that it’s accessible and reasonably priced.
Now, my solely drawback might be making an attempt to maintain sufficient in inventory for me and my daughter. Because consider me, if mama runs out of her Wonder Water, she isn’t going to be glad.
