If there was ever a box that I knew I'd take from the start, it was the hair box.



Info book.


Liquid Shampoo (Buttercup) ($11.99) - I haven't had a lot of time to test this out, unfortunately. Not for lack of actual time, but because I had so many shampoos/conditioners open that I needed to clear them out and clear out my shower. This does smell amazing, very musky but in a good way.

Leave-In Conditioner (Off With Their Heads) ($9.99) - I use the heck out of leave-in conditioners so this was a welcome addition. I use it mostly in my ends because that's where my hair is the driest, and immediately after I've toweled my hair. The scent stays but not in a bad way, it's not too strong and is a nice fruity and floral scent.

Detangler (Body Shot) ($10.99) - I don't need/use detanglers, my hair hasn't gotten tangled in at least a decade, so I passed this along to my mom (whose hair gets tangled multiple times a day). I found out that if your hair is curly, your hair is less likely to get tangled, so....score!


Shimmer Hair & Body Mist (Parlay) ($9.99) - This was an instant pass. I used this on my arms and it was just glitter that was falling off as it dried. 

Dry Shampoo (Oh Hair) ($12.99) - Instead of the normal aerosol spray dry shampoo, this is like a bottle of baby powder that you dump into your hair. It does create a fair bit of a mess but it definitely works, I only wish the smell weren't so strong. When I use this, I can smell it for hours later in a bad way.


Deep Conditioner (Whale Talk) ($12.99) - This was in my Europe bag because of how well it works and also how little room it took up. I scoop up a penny-sized amount and that's all it takes for my ends. I do find that it needs to be warmed up between my fingers before using it, nothing troublesome. It smells amazing and I will definitely repurchase (when I clear out the madness that is my hair products).

Co-Wash (Deep Magic) ($9.49) - This is one product that I haven't tried at all, not because it's a bad product. I've been looking for a co-wash (conditioner only washing) so when this popped up in my mailbox, I knew it was meant to be. I'll update this when I have time to give this a good testing.


This box was valued at $78.43, such an amazing value for the cost! I did have the two items that were an instant pass so that was a bit disappointing, but otherwise it was a good box!

As always, let me know what you thought of this box in the comments!
