Lace & Lacquer recently won some amazing product from Birchbox and Number 4 Hair! My normal shampoos I switch between are John Frieda’s Brilliant Brunette, Herbal Essances Tousle Me Softly, and Treseme’s Volumizing. As you can tell I usually stick to body-enhancing products. These products are they sent me are hydrating in nature- L’eau de Mer Hydrating Shampoo +Conditioner +Blow Dry Lotion. I was excited to try this brand and something new for my hair!
First of all, lets talk about how cool the packaging is. I am a sucker for awesome packaging and Number 4 caught my eye immediately. Pretty things come in pretty packages and that is just what Number 4 delivers.
The product is 100% Vegan, Sulfate & Sodium Chloride Free, Gluten Free, Bad Taste Free, Paraben Free and Number 4 formulas are never ever tested on any animal. Being a vegetarian, friend to the animals, and a roommate to someone who is Gluten Free, this product is something I would be very likely to try if I saw it on shelves.
The cool thing about Number 4 is that you don’t have to use as much product as other hair shampoo+conditioner duos. I have a TON of hair and I can use two pumps of each (they recommend one, I just really did need more). The smell is not overpowering, but very nice and fresh. I normally don’t like to use the word fresh when describing product because that usually means it smells like linen or lemons. This shampoo does not. It does not smell like either one of these but it still smells clean- reminds me a little bit of how Biolage smells.
After using Number 4 shampoo and conditioner for a week, I am more than happy with the appearance, touch, feel, and smell of my hair. I really like it!
I would put a picture up of my hair but I do not think that the difference is significant that you would be able to tell- but I can definitely feel a difference. My hair feels smooth and hydrated.When I comb my wet hair after showering, I am shocked at how well the conditioner works, especially because I do not use a large amount of it. Usually I use gigantic blobs of s&c and have to replenish my supply often. I like this shampoo system because I feel like it will last me a long time and continue to perform.
The Blow Dry Lotion was also a nice surprise. I think my favorite thing about it is that since it is all natural, I don’t have to intensely wash and wipe down my hands after running it through my hair. It helps speed up the drying process, and though I was tempted to put Moroccan Oil in my hair as well before blow drying, I am glad I didn’t because the BDL was just enough product to keep my hair smooth, silky, and under control–i.e. kill static! Damn you, dry winters in Chicago!
