Introducing UNITE haircare!

I really love the new UNITE haircare line, it has done wonders with my hair. The scent of both the shampoo and conditioner is so pretty it leaves my hair smelling amazing.

UNITE shampoo gets my hair really clean without over drying it and has really helped my hair to shine. My favorite product though has to be UNITE conditioner, at first I thought it wasn’t thick enough to really condition my hair. That is where the magic is though, it feels more like a shampoo during application instead of the overly thick almost lotion texture of a lot of conditioners. The UNITE conditioner is the perfect balance for my dual personality hair it conditions enough to keep my curls in line but is lightwieght enough not the weigh down my super fine hair. I love how great my hair looks and feels while using UNITE I have even been leaving it down, which for a girl who ties her hair up 99.5% of the time is a big thing!

UNITE is an amazing, cruelty-free, botanically based line proudly free of parabens, sulfate, dea & mea ingredients, and gluten. The premium line already has a list of celebrity fans such as: Heidi Klum, Eva Longoria, Sienna Miller, David Beckham, Nina Dobrev, Jennifer Hudson,  and many more. www.unitehair.com
