In mid April, I received three items to test from Parnevu. Parnevu is a hair product company whose mission to sell quality hair products to those with very dry, and/or damaged hair and/or dry scalp with dandruff. They have two collections to aid those who want healthy, moisturized locks and dander control--the Tea Tree Collection ("Known primarily for its anit-bacterial properties, tea tree oil is a natural treatment that eliminates the itching and flaking associated with dandruff." Statement found on Parnevu's website.) and the Extra Dry Collection ("formulated to moisturize even the driest of hair with a unique blend of up to 14 conditioning agents, including coconut oils and palm nuts." Statement found on Parnevu's website.)
I was sent a salon shampoo, a leave-in conditioner, and a hair mayonnaise, all for extra dry hair to test.
The products arrived in a large card board box with newspaper and green wrapping paper. Every thing arrived in excellent condition. I also found two fliers that spoke of their two collections.
The extra dry salon shampoo is most cleansing, and does brings back a salon like experience with the scent.
My first initial use of the shampoo, I was a bit disappointed with the lather, or lack thereof. However, once I rinsed it out, and reapplied again, it did lather very nicely. After the final rinse, my hair was left feeling clean and fresh, but I did not feel as if my hair was stripped. The natural oils from the shampoo, restored luster and moisture back into my locks. As I do not hardly use any hot tools, being that my hair is dry already, I am very selective when using a shampoo. I need something that does not strip my hair, causing it be even more dry. I apply this product to my hair, working it in with my fingertips, all over my scalp, and I follow with a rinse and then repeat.
I use this shampoo now for its natural cleansing abilities-not for scent. If I want my hair to smell fragrant, I use another shampoo in lieu with this one. This product sells for five dollars at their online store.
My leave-in conditioner works amazing! It moisturizes best on dry hair, I think.
I remember using a Parnevu leave-in conditioner about four years ago. I found it on sale when Kroger bought out our local Scott's. Until now, I had forgotten the name of the brand of the leave-in. I recognized the packaged tubs on their website. This product is absolutely amazing. I hope to buy it once my current one is used up. After my hair is completely dry after washing it, I like to apply a generous amount from root to tip. On occasion, if I want easy beachy waves, I will braid my hair after using the leave-in. The next morning I wake to soft, moisturized, wavy locks. This leave-in conditioner is also sold for five dollars.
Despite its unseemly appearance, the hair mayonnaise in this tub is phenomenal. I like to use it anywhere from once a week to every few weeks. This product leaves my hair soft and moisturized. I feel, if it is rinsed out thoroughly after use, once my hair is dried it actually feels fuller. I apply a good amount after shampooing to my hair. Then I leave it in for five or ten minutes while I take a good soak. I follow that with a very thorough rinse. One of the options on the directions for use is to apply to hair daily, and leave it in. I don't like using it in this manner, because I have found it difficult to wash completely out later, but I do enjoy using it as a deep conditioning treatment (while hair is wet to rinse out thereafter). I would like to make note, that the lid on this one does not close as tightly as my leave-in conditioner and it pops back open.
I plan on replacing this product when it has been used up. I love a good deep treatment, and such is always a nice little pick me when I need it. I know my hair is being restored and nourished when I use this hair mayonnaise. I am thrilled to have it incorporated in my hair routine. This product has even made my July Favorites.
The Parnevu Hair Mayonnaise is sold for seven dollars. The description for this product states (on their website) that it "provides intense rejuvenating therapy specially formulated for weak, damaged or over processed hair. Enriched with olive oil, egg protein and herbs to promote healthy hair and scalp. It works from within the hair shaft to help strengthen fragile roots, mend split ends, and moisturize dry brittle hair."
I would definitely recommend these products. I am most impressed with the quality and the amount of each product for such an affordable price. It has been a pleasure testing them; they have made lovely additions to my hair care routine.
I would like to send out a big thank you to Kat at Parnevu for sending me these items, and to destne146 on youtube for referring me to them.
