Taking Care Of Color Treated Hair With Orlando Pita Play

orlando pita play review by iliketotalkblog

Now that I treat myself to hair appointments every six weeks, I’ve really tried to focus on my haircare a bit more. Color treated hair requires a bit more care, especially with fantasy colors that fade a bit quicker. I also don’t want my hair to feel processed or ruined, so treatments that nourish and repair are important for me too. It was by luck I was sent Orlando Pita Play products which couldn’t be more suited my recently colored hair.

Orlando Pita Play has four product lines that focus on either: volumizing, smoothing, color care, and deep repair. While all the products look enticing enough to try, the two I’ve used were perfect choices for me. The Former Glory Protein Treatment spray helps in repair and protecting from damage while the Hair Purifier Vinegar Cleansing Mask cleanses the hair and scalp to promote vibrant hair color.

The Former Glory Protein Treatment spray is used after shampooing and is spritzed on wet hair from root to ends. This product does have a perfume scent to it which maybe be strong for some – but it’s only for a minute that you notice it before the shower steam makes it dissipate. During the few minutes you leave it on your hair, the spray works to repair damaged parts while strengthening and preventing future damage with its special Fortifinity Complex. This proprietary blend uses amino acids, proteins and lipids to make hair look healthy and shiny once again. I can see myself using this often since I have frequent color changes.

The Hair Purifier Vinegar Cleansing Mask was the very first hair mask that I’ve used that focuses more on the roots than the ends! The purpose of this mask is to enhance color and cleanse the hair and scalp for vibrant, longer lasting color. Fantasy colors don’t hold well so anything that helps it stay longer is a necessity! I scoop out a dollop and massage directly into the scalp while  adding just a tiny bit more water for it to lather up a bit. I leave it on while I use my shower poof and rinse before shaving my legs. The brand does recommend using it for 5-20 minutes which is a reasonable amount of time — at least for my kinda showers! Once I rinsed my hair felt fantastic and smoother. I still follow with my color enhancing conditioner, but I definitely felt a difference!

I’m really glad I found out about these products because I do feel that my hair feels very healthy even though it’s colored often.

You can find Orlando Pita Play products at ULTA both in stores and online. To find out more about the brand you can visit them on Facebook and Instagram.

NeoCell Beauty Chews

NeoCell Beauty Chews review by iliketotalkblogDelicious Beauty Treats

I’ve always been interested in improving my health, but I find that now as a mom, it’s harder to carve out time to do everything I want to do for myself. Things I would totally do before, fall to the wayside because I need to take care of my family first. Sometimes that leaves mama feeling a little ragged.

Aside from jumping back into a good exercise routine again, and making changes to my diet, I was also able to start taking NeoCell Biotin Bursts and Hair, Skin & Nails beauty chews that helped give me that little extra boost I was looking for. Never have I been more excited to take “my vitamin” as I have with these things!

NeoCell Beauty Chews review by iliketotalkblog

The Hair, Skin, & Nails Beauty Chews are super tasty and definitely feel like you’re indulging in a treat. I’m all about strengthening the hair skin and nails with this delicious chew that features Biotin (promotes hair/nail growth), Vitamin C (Antioxidant), Hyaluronic Acid (skin hydration) , and Collagen (skin repair, renewal). It does have a little bit of sugar, but does not have gluten, soy, wheat, starch or artificial flavors. You only need to eat one day, but I would sometimes eat a couple more because they were so good!

The Biotin Bursts were just as delicious! Soft and chewy, and make you want to eat more than one. A single chew will give you 10,000 mcg dose of Biotin and includes Acai Berry for antioxidant support! If you have weak nails or want to promote healthy hair growth, and want to do it in a tasty way — and NOT in boring blah pill form, this is for you.

Collagen is vital for healthy skin by fighting fine lines and wrinkles, maintain elasticity, and firmness. NeoCell Beauty Bursts are a great option if you’re hoping to give your skin a boost with its blend of Super Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin C. I found the other two chews to be more “juicy” in flavor than this one, but still better than swallowing a large pill.

NeoCell Beauty Chews review by iliketotalkblog

NeoCell has a huge variety of supplements that can be found at CVS, Amazon, iHerb, and more. Not only do they have chews, but they also have pill form, and powders depending on what your fancy is. The prices will range from just over $10 to under $30.

To find out more about NeoCell you can visit their website, or give them a follow on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.
