I've tried them all
I first discovered "beachy" texture sprays in high school when John Frieda had a different Blondes line out. It was a "Summer Beach Blonde Waves" Spray. Ever since it went off the market I've been searching for the perfect replacement. The only reason I don't give Bumble & Bumble's version a higher rating is because My #1 pick is Alterna's Ocean Waves Texturzing Mist. Your personal favorite will depend on what type of curls you have.

Ignore the low reviews!
As a stylist I felt that I needed to write a review for this mask because I can't believe that people have said it's anything less than a 9! I've already raved about the Perfect 4 Platinum Shampoo, Conditioner, & Miracle Filler so there's no question that this stuff is amazing! This conditioner will not maker your hair dry, my hair felt like butter after I used it and like anything else it must be used properly for good results. I cannot say how many times a client will buy the expensive mask but not get the shampoo & conditioner. Most of them think that it will reverse the outcome of their bad shampoo, this if false. If you use Pantene(makes me gag it's so horrible!) it will dry your hair out because of the high alcohol content along with several other horrible ingredients. Following it up with a $30 mask will not solve any problems! Take my advice and use the set, I did it consistently and I noticed huge results! If you can't afford it at the salon check online for cheaper prices!

Damaged Blondes This is For You!
Being a cosmetologist has lead me to try hundreds of products from all lines and Pureology has me hooked. The number one problem my clients have is getting damaged hair healthy again. When your hair is lightened it feels less soft because the hair shaft is no longer smooth and unharmed. Chemicals bubble inside of your hair and can cause that damaged "empty" feeling. Mine never got that bad but when you are really over processed your hair will literally feel empty, lack consistency, and appear limp. The Miracle Filler is like a leave in conditioner on crack. It goes a step further meaning it's a little heavier but it is packing your hair with the nutrients it needs to repair itself. It smells awesome and is also great for detangling after the shower. I never skip this step no matter how much of a hurry I'm in! I bought the Perfect 4 Platinum set in February and I'm just now getting to the bottom of the bottle. All of Pureology's products are super concentrated so a little bit goes a long way!

Blondes: You need this!
I've been using Pureology's Perfect 4 Platinum line for quite a while now and I love how much my hair has improved! It wasn't horrible before but I was using a volume set by Alterna and that wasn't what my hair needed. If you have chemically treated or natural blonde hair this conditioner will restore your hair and make it feel healthier again. Damage comes in all forms and if you have natural blonde hair you can still have ample damage from the sun, blow drying, flat ironing, and not protecting it with products. My hair was slightly damaged from highlighting and lowlighting and over the last few months I've noticed huge changes thanks to the pureology shampoo & conditioner. I will say that I feel it works best when used with the Miracle Filler or Reconstructive Mask. I use the Pureology Essential Repair Nano Mask once a week but I spritz my ends with the Perfect 4 Platinum Miracle Filler after towel drying my hair. It always helps to use something after the shower!

Amazing for Blondes!
I absolutely love this shampoo! I've used TIGI, Aveda, Paul Mitchell, etc. and Pureology's shampoo is the best for color treated hair! Even if you don't have color treated hair it has so many other great benefits. I have dark blonde/copper lowlights with blonde highlights so this shampoo will brighten my blonde while maintaining the life of my lowlights. I use the conditioner as well as the perfect 4 platinum miracle filler and I have to say my hair is in much better shape than with other shampoos! Something else I noticed while using this shampoo is that people still commented on my hair color 2 months after it was done! I don't know about everyone else but i'd much rather my hair get more bright & vibrant than slowly dull until my next color! I have quite a few clients that have finally switched to Pureology and most of them tell me they can't believe they waited so long! Most people shy away because of the price but when you compare it to spending $19 on a bottle of Redken that lasts half the time it's better to spend more now and save later!

Love the Bamboo Line!
I'm a huge Alterna fan and I'm always anxious to try their newest products! The new Bamboo line is the new version of their "Life" line. I was disappointed to see the old stuff go but I'm impressed with the new stuff! I used to use the Alterna Life Volumizing Spray Mousse & it was awesome but the new Bamboo Weightless Whipped Mousse is just as good if not better. I do miss the spray form but it was always getting clogged so this is probably better anyways. Your hair will have great hold without feeling sticky or crunchy and won't weight it down. Remember that a little goes a long way! I use this mousse when i let my hair dry naturally with Alterna's Boho Wave Spray. It gives a great summer look if you have any natural texture or curl!

Great Product for Keeping It Simple!
Our salon is big on Pureology and we received their entire line of new styling products! I have actually replaced my usual blow-dry styler with the Anti-Split Blow Dry Styling Cream. It moisturizes intensely without leaving a greasy feeling to your hair and also smooths & softens your ends. If you're someone who doesn't like to use much product or doesn't use it at all this is a great one to cover all basics. It will protect your hair from heat, moisturize, prevent breakage & split ends, and leave your hair looking amazing! Everyone should use a heat protectant especially if you are blow-drying everyday! For those of you that are using a heat protecting spray, frizz cream, leave-in conditioner, etc. this product is a great way to do it all in one step. It will give you a little volume so if you want more i'd suggest using Pureology's new root lifter with it!

Best of the Best!!!
Not only is Pureology the #1 selling brand in our salon it also holds up to it's promises! The essential repair line is one of the most effective out of any brands I have used in or out of the salon. All of my clients notice a huge difference in their hair when I use this product and the best part is you can use it on any hair type! It will help smooth & soften your ends and leave a polished look without the feeling that something is on your hair. It's important to remember that when your hair is damaged it is probably lacking 2 things: protein & moisture. Pureology's Essential Repair line is super concentrated & packed with proteins that aid in rebuilding and restrengthening your hair. If your hair gets too much protein it may actual go from damaged to repaired to dry and brittle because it needs to be balanced with moisture. If you use any Pureology Essential Repair Product everyday be sure not to exceed 6 weeks (especially if you feel that your hair is dry or brittle but was feeling better). After that use the hydrating line for a week and then you can go back and forth. If you use the hydrating shampoo & conditioner with the split end corrector after your shower then you're good to go for a continuous daily routine! Remember to keep balance for healthy hair!
