The Fekkai Shampoo Swap: Trade Your Shampoo For Fekkai’s!

September 16, 2009

As I’m sure many of you already know, on Thursday, September 17, select Saks locations nationwide will be exchanging any full-sized shampoo you currently own (full or empty) for one full-sized bottle of the new Fekkai Advanced shampoo of your choice (a $23 value) ~ a pretty great deal in my book!

I’d love to hear from those of you planning to take advantage of this wonderful promo!

Frederic Fekkai Salon Glaze Clear Shine Rinse Review

June 16, 2009
Frederic Fekkai Salon Glaze Clear Shine Rinse ($28)
Frederic Fekkai Salon Glaze is a clear shine rinse inspired by professional salon glazing services. The rinse-off treatment binds shine, recharges color, and adds silkiness to the hair. This non-chemical formula contains a unique blend of conditioning and lightweight silicones that coat the cuticle to shine and condition the hair shaft. With its lightweight formula, Salon Glaze won’t weigh your hair down like traditional shine serums. It works on all hair colors and types, and both non-colored and color-treated hair.

I don’t usually indulge in too many nice hair treatment products, primarily because I feel inexplicably guilty for splurging on my hair, but last winter, armed with a gift card in hand I picked up Frederic Fekkai’s Salon Glaze, hoping to bring some much-needed silky shine back ot my hair.

To say that I color-treat my hair would be a massive understatement; it’s more like an addiction. Every few weeks I feel this compulsion to dye my hair a different color, and while I’ve gotten better at resisting this urge, my hair has definitely paid the price for many an at-home dye job. Fekkai’s Salon Glaze Clear Shine Rinse, while not a permanent solution, really helps to improve the appearance of my hair. Post-use my hair is left feeling ridiculously silky smooth and soft, sleek, and of course it looks shinier thanks to the silicones. The shine results do intensify over time, but this is the kind of thing where you’ll see results during use, but don’t use it for a few weeks and your hair goes back to the way it was before.

I have mixed feelings on this one. On the one hand I do love the way my hair looks after using this, but on the other it makes my hair greasier faster, and I do need to be careful washing this out (as in I need to make sure it all gets out) so that my hair doesn’t feel a little weighed down. Fekkai’s Salon Glaze wasn’t the miracle product I was hoping for, but it’s definitely really nice to use regularly on color-treated hair like my own, not only to bring back some luster but to seal in some shine and color.

Sephora currently has this up as one of their samples, so if you’ve been curious about it definitely give it a shot. You can’t beat a free sample!
