A-List brand Terax Hair Care will change the way you think about hair. If you have suffered from symptoms such asÂ dry, frizzy andÂ lifeless locks, and I know 90% of us do, thenÂ Terax Hair Care is here to rescue your locks.
All Terax shampoos are free from sulphate, sodium chloride, siliconesÂ and artificial colours which makes them better for your hair and the environment. Cult product Crema opens the hair follicle and penetrates it with hydration, while the leave-in moisturisers close the follicle and seal it with hydrating properties. Terax Hair Care do not stop at the hair on your head; they are renowned for their popular body shaving cream. See my thoughts on Terax below.
I know this will sound like a cliche but Terax Original Crema (from $14.95)Â is a lifesaver! The cult product of Terax Hair Care, this lightweight and creamy conditioner has done wonders for my long,Â dry, coloured lengths. You can use daily but being soÂ rich, I use it 2-3 times weekly.Â Original Crema’s ‘ultra moisturising’ claim rings true because my hair feels the softest it has ever felt, it has honoured claims to strengthen hair strands as mine no longer break or snag like they usually do. A cream formulaÂ that de-tangles, strengthens andÂ softens, Original Crema can alsoÂ be used as a hydratingÂ hair mask treatment on a weekly basis. The scent is amazing – a light and creamy scent thatÂ smells soft and appealing. ItsÂ plasticÂ squeeze tube is reallyÂ handy forÂ keeping in the bathroom or for overnight stays.Â I am so thrilled that I have been introduced to the product because it has become my holy grail conditioner.
Shampoo Terax Delicato ($24.95) was not suited to my hair type, and I was really surprised by the negative reaction it gave my scalp. Formulated for normal hair, Delicato has a Gentlewash system designed to cleanse hair without stripping it of natural oils but my scalp over-reacted to the formula and went into oil-slick over drive. Rosemary isÂ infused to hair and scalp health, whileÂ yuccaÂ helpsÂ Delicato lather up and spread.Â Surprised as my hair is normal with dry ends, I ignored it for a little while until my hairdresser made mention of my scalp also which made me realise my concern was real. The navy plastic packagingÂ matches that ofÂ Original Crema’s and compliments the famous conditioner, but it did not give the fantastic results I was hoping for.Â I have since been recommended to try Bosco which helps clean excess oil from the scalp, but I am yet to give it a go.
Terax Life Drops ($29.95) has got to be one of the best leave in hair treatments I have used. Life Drops absorbs really quickly into hair strands while keeping hair feeling weightless, smooth, and soft to touch. Although results do not happen overnight, it will happen withinÂ a few weeks, so be patient. Considering my hair is long, coloured, and heat damaged Life Drops have really worked hard along with Original Crema to fight the damage caused. Vanilla sugar scented, I make time to use a little each night before bed just so I can indulge in one last sugar fix! The plastic squeeze packaging is really handy too but I could seriously do with a half-size version of Life Drops because 200ml is just too much, and it can be inconvenient for travelling.
Terax Gloss ($24.95) stops my frizzies dead in their tracks. While the serum glosses every strand it touches, the formula is so lightweight that it is almost invisible to touch and feel. While it does not miraculously smooth split ends, Gloss does help to prevent them by smoothingÂ the hair follicle one by one.Â Â However, Terax Gloss does leave a slight residue on my hands, which can beÂ rinsed off with warm water, or wiped off with a towel.Â My advice is to use sparingly because silicone makes the formula spread further, plus if too much is used hair will look too slick and glossy for its own good. I would use this in future – especially in cooler months when my hair does misbehave and frizz.
Terax Complete Shave ($17.95) has become my shaving cream of choice.Â With menthol to stimulate the senses and caffeine to decrease skin sensitivity the whole experience is so therapeutic and enjoyable. My skin loves the soothing formula which guarantees me a smoother shave without redness or in-growns. I love the recyclable plastic squeeze-tube packaging which is aluminum and aerosolÂ free. I stopped using shave creams a while ago because mostÂ come packaged inÂ aerosol cans which are dangerous and not environmentally friendly.
