My hair has been through the wringer lately.

No fun, especially when I focus so much on wellness & health. The past month I’ve really been looking to find more natural products to incorporate into my routine…but I wanted something that would make my hair smoother & help with hydration. Something that isn’t full of chemicals…but something that gets the job done you know?

When Kérastase invited me to try their Aura Botanica line of products, I WAS GAME. Even more so because the line is of natural origin. Yes that’s right, it’s filled with so much goodness like Samoan coconut & Moroccan Argan oils (see my obsession with oils getting deeper? Because I can’t stop ) & products in the collection also include avocado oil, jojoba oil, sweet orange essential oil, rosemary extract, & rose floral water. Kérastase’s Aura Botanica products are hand-picked, responsibly sourced with NO silicones, NO sulfates, & NO parabens.

YES PLZ, JUST how I prefer it.

I arrived at the salon, Evian in La Jolla with my hair QUITE dirty. Like dirty as in I had not washed it for…about a week & half-ish. Let’s just say there was a lot going on.

The hair stylist, Ashley, first offered me an Aura Botanica conditioning treatment and explained each step which was very awesome because I love to know the WHY.

The collection consists of a shampoo, conditioner, a nourishing oil blend which gives your ends a super moisturizing shine, & a finishing moisturizing oil-mist. It smells like essential oils- WHICH I LOVE. The story behind the products is that it took YEARS in the labs in Paris for Kérastase to whip up a naturally based luxury hair beauty product formula that was sustainable, responsibility sourced, & healthy. Their goal was to source raw ingredients & perfect the formulas. Sounds like my kind of beauty product.

“The new Aura Botanica range is made for the woman who believes that responsibility is a must, performance a right and glowing, healthy hair is the essence of self-expression.” -Kérastase

The in-salon treatment itself started with a relaxing scalp massage with the oil blend. And OK let’s get real…what is actually better than a scalp massage? After the shampoo & conditioner, Ashley added the oil-mist with ANOTHER scalp massage. Everything smelled DELICIOUS.

She then started on the blow-dry. To be honest I wasn’t expecting SUCH a difference in my hair. If you saw on Snapchat my hair looked so soft after it was blown dry. The real thing that sold me? How my hair FELT. It was lightweight, bouncy, & shiny. I mean you can see for yourself in these photos- the before & after was HUGE. And like I said my hair has been looking like it’s gone through a bad break-up lately. It’s been neglected. So to sit down & give my hair some TLC was necessary. It was also so helpful to not only find a collection that works, but one with natural-based ingredients.

If you’re looking for a salon in your area to try out these products, just make sure you find one that’s trained by Kérastase ( salon locator online ).

Always been a BIG fan of Kérastase but now I’m an even bigger fan with this new line of products. FOR SURE booking another appointment in a month & a half. Any natural hair tips/tricks you guys have? Give them up PLZ!

    Your hair is gorgeous. I NEED to do something like this. I haven’t colored (or really done anything to) my hair in like almost two years because I feel like when I did it last time it got damaged so much (I went pretty blonde right from brown) and I’m scared to do it again. However, I really want to do something to mix it up and this might be a good solution! Do you have any suggestions for natural/healthy ways to dye your hair? I have a salon that I go to and love, but just am not sure how good it actually is for my hair.

      Switching your hair is so fun!! Definitely do your research for products that strengthen & build hair then find salons that use those items. xx

    1. Lauryn

      I use a lot of dry shampoo babe! LOL. Plus I’ve been doing this for years. Your hair will adjust! xx

    Didn’t you just post about chopping your hair into a lob not that long ago? How has it possibly grown this much?!

    1. Lauryn Post author

      Yes! I take my vitamins, eat a lot of greens, drink collagen, & don’t wash my hair. It’s gown fast.

    2. Sarah

      I started drinking collagen every day upon Lauryn’s recommendation and my hair grows like crazy now! I highlight my hair to a blonde and my hair stylist is always commenting on how fast it grows in- I’m there like every three weeks now bc I have a good inch of growth every 3 weeks.

    I watched your IG live video last night and loved it! All of the masks are paying off big time. You two seriously need a reality show, but I suppose you’ve already created your own through social media. Thank you for always entertaining me and making me laugh. Also, thank you for talking about Botox because you’ve convinced me to get it done myself.

    1. Lauryn

      Aw thanks Chelsa! Botox is a really great preventive measure. Hope you love it! xx

    This is life changing. I’m not even kidding. I love my balayage but really hate exposing myself to all the chemicals. I’m so careful with everything else I use. Gotta find a salon that uses these.
