Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger

Nov. '14 (1)

Making the journey to the south was difficult in more ways than one. When we decided to move over 1,500 miles to Orlando almost two years ago, there was a lot we didn’t think about. From missing family and friends to not having the comforts of our hometown, we quickly learned that we had to fend for ourselves.

Although it may seem trite– especially for a girl– it’s tough finding the perfect stylist to take care of your hair when everything’s changed so drastically. One tip that I did learn from my amazing hairstylist back home (home as in “PA”) was to not skimp on products that truly make a difference. She introduced me to an amazing line, Paul Mitchell’s Awapuhi Wild Ginger. I have been using this products line for about three years now and I swear by it.

Not only do they smell amazing, but Paul Mitchell Wild Ginger products combine the moisturizing benefits of awapuhi with the revolutionary KeraTriplex protein blend to transform dry, damaged hair. The sulfate-free formula lacks lather but does wonders to rejuvenate tired, lifeless locks. Sad that I couldn’t find a hairstylist (and not to mention I don’t have licensure to buy professional products) I was thrilled to find that my local Hair Cuttery is now offering Paul Mitchell Wild Ginger Moisturizing Lather Shampoo, Keratin Cream Rinse and Hydrocream Whip in all of their salons! (P.S.–Hydrocream Whip is the “mousse-like” product that gives me lightweight volume in the “after” photo). I honestly didn’t use any other products (not even an iron, which, in retrospect–I probably should have) other than the 3 Paul Mitchael Wild Ginger products I’m in love with.

It’s definitely tough to find a volumizing product that isn’t sticky and won’t weigh down my fine hair, but thank heaven I finally did. Just with one little pump, I was able to blow up the volume after using a diffuser on my hair dryer–no other product needed.

Paul Mitchell Wild Ginger products help treat your hair from the inside out with every wash, condition and style. Plus, the Awapuhi extract helps seal in the keratin! I was always wondering what exactly keratin does for the hair, but my stylist explained to me that treatments are used to smooth, strengthen, and seal the hair to better protect it.

So, why these? Well, I was wondering the same because God knows that it’s difficult to convince a bargain shopper to spend a little bit more money on something she can buy for cheaper. But, it does make a HUGE difference–I promise. The shampoo works to gently hydrate and protect while rebuilding/repairing dry and brittle strands (perfect for recovering from winter!). I’m loving it because it won’t fade my color whatsoever.

The Keratin Cream Rinse instantly detangles and replenishes your hair while strengthening, protecting and adding shine. In the “after” picture, you can definitely see the difference in shine. I was really surprised.

My favorite product in the line would have to be the HydroCream Whip. This works to deliver a long-lasting, crunch-free hold, hydrates, fights frizz, and balances moisture. It helps create healthy-looking volume while also creating a touchable hold. And the fact that they’re safe for your color makes them perfect for everyday use. Love it. Give them a whirl, trust me.
