When I was a kid, my hair was growing thick at a speedy rate and my parents thought that I was underweight cause all the nutrients went straight to my hair. Now I wish I had that boost of hair growth now, as my hair seems to feel drier and less shiny than it used to be. Luckily, the market is not short of varieties of hair products to add some shine and bounce to your hair. I’m usually familiar with hair stuff found in drugstores, so when I received a few Hairfinity stuff and read about it, it seems like the modern-day hair potion that Hermione Granger would’ve appreciated.
The Hairfinity Strengthening Amino Masque ($45 CAD) is my favourite of the trio I tried. After one use, my hair felt noticeably smoother and it looked shinier too! I tend to sleep while my hair is semi-wet and it wake up looking like not-a-hot mess. (Imagine a tumbleweed.) After using the mask, though my hair is messy and everywhere, I can easily straighten it and it looks a lot sleeker compared to my no-hair-mask days. The ends of my hair look a lot less split too when I grab it and look it up at the light!
The Strengthening Amino Masque is infused with scents of sea salt, hibiscus, and essential oils. Some of the key ingredients in the masque include: Hydrolyzed Collagen, Sweet Almond Oil, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Biotin, Vitamin C, and Essential Oils (Lavender, Cedar, Cinnamon, Rosemary, Thyme, Peppermint.) The full list of ingredients is online here. To me, it smells faintly of vanilla for some reason and I am a fan of it!! It is also free of sulfates, silicones, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, and petroleum.
To use the mask, apply it to wet hair thoroughly and cover with a plastic cap. Leave the mask in for 15 minutes and then rinse. To be honest, I don’t like sitting around with my hair wet for 15 minutes (I can’t even take a bath that long,) so I rinsed it out after 5-6 minutes and my hair was still so buttery smooth. I’m sure if I left it in longer the results would’ve been better.
I’ve used a lot of different hair oils and serums in the past so trying a new one is always a fun experience. The Hairfinity Nourishing Botanical Oil ($45 CAD) contains a blend of vitamins and essential oils that help increase shine and elasticity. Like the masque, the oil is free of sulfates, silicones etc. Some of the key ingredients include Hydrolyzed Collagen, Grapeseed Stem Cell Extract, Sweet Almond Oil, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Moringa Oil, Apricot Oil, Vitamin E, and Essential Oils (Lavender, Cedar, Cinnamon, Rosemary, Thyme, Peppermint). You can view the full list online here.
The oil can be used on wet or dry hair – and even on dry hair, your hair doesn’t feel greasy or heavy! To use it before shampooing, apply it to the hair, comb through, and cover with a plastic cap for 10-15 minutes. To be time efficient, I usually put three droplets on my palms, rub them together, then spread it through my hair. After blow drying my hair, my hair definitely felt softer. The scent isn’t as ‘pretty’ as the masque since I find the oil has more of a botanical/apothecary scent. Not as strong in the morning though if you shower before bedtime.
The Hairfinity Infinite Edges Serum ($55 CAD) is a type of product I haven’t tried before. It targets overworked or delicate areas of the hair, like the hairline. This is like a pen and you directly apply it to the hairline or any distressed areas of the hair or scalp. It contains ingredients such as Glyercin, Hyaluronic Acid, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Licorice Root Extract, White Tea Leaf Extract, Vitamins E/A/C, and Panthenol (Provitamin B5.)
I never really thought areas of my hair is “distressed” or “overworked” (except maybe the top is a bit frizzy,) so this isn’t a product I use as much compared to the other two. I haven’t noticed a significant improvement with the serum but it’s nice to touch on areas that feel particularly dry. What I do like is the portability of this product. I WANT to bring my hair serums and oils to vacation because hotel shampoos/conditioners do not do anything but strip my hair dry of whatever it’s hanging on to. This is good touch up for the unexpectedly dry ends or to tame the frizz. I find the serum feels a bit heavier than the oil so I applied very little.
Overall, Hairfinity left a good impression and the results made me feel more confident about my hair. A slight negative is that I find the price point is a bit high but the ingredients and results certainly show. The Nourishing Botanical Oil left my hair soft, but it is also comparable to other oils I’ve used in the past. Out of the three, I’d recommend the masque first as it really helped me have office ready hair in the morning!
