Last week I was browsing the Cultbeauty website and my eye spotted something exciting. The Inkey List is coming with a haircare line! The Inkey list is a very straightforward, no-nonsense, and cheap(!!) brand. I already tried some of their skincare products, which have been rapidly expanding I feel the last few months as well! But these haircare items immediately caught my eye! The Inkey List made some innovative hair stuff! I will give you the details in short one by one.
Hopefully, I will give you a review of what I bought, the collection launches the 4th of June (this goes live 3rd of June). So be aware, it might go quickly.
If you click the image, it brings you to the Cultbeauty website!
Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Treatment
As you might know salicylic acid can be a game-changer if you have acne-prone skin, as it is anti-inflammatory and it can shed dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. I guess the same mechanisms are in place for hair care, as it will dissolve the glue keeping your dead skin cells on top of your scalp.
I personally have a “problem” with this with my scalp, like not a big problem but I do notice it from time to time. So this one will most likely land in my shopping bag!
Price: €14,60 // ±$16.00
Vitamin C Brightening Hair Treatment
I feel like The Inkey List is onto something new here. I don’t see how Vitamin C will birghten your hair, yet. But apparantly it will transform lifeless locks back into shape and shine.
I am just going to share what it includes: “Boasting 0.8% VCIP to repair damaged, compromised lengths, alongside 2% Lustreplex (it increases hair’s ‘Humidity Resistance Factor’ to minimise frizz and optimise shine) and 1% Betaine to soften and nourish, this helps to rebuild ravaged, heat-weakened tresses – spinning straw into silk (without silicones).”
Doesn’t that sound so good?
Price €12,20 // ±$13.40
Caffeine Stimulating Scalp Treatment
Okay, so we all know caffeine in skincare. Well, mainly eye care I guess. But as you might not know, caffeine is often used in hair growth stimulating shampoos. These are often marketed at men though. But The Inkey List took that idea and formulated their own caffeine scalp treatment. This one is an overnight treatment btw, you wash it out in the morning.
Caffeine has been proven to reduce hair loss by awakening your hair follicles. But this treatment also includes some other goodies: Redensyal and Betaine. Redensyal aids in the hair growth and Betaine will soften en nourish your hair.
Price €18,30 // ±$20.00
Chia Seed Curl Defining Hair Treatment
Okay, this one is for the curly girls! So I am not an expert on this at all… I am just going to show you what they say about it, they say it best!
“…it separates all types of curls, from tight coils to loose waves. A weightless serum packed with smoothing, nourishing ingredients – including 2% Procutigen Bond which helps to hold your style while shielding your strands against chemical damage, 1% Mirustyle CP which tames frizz as it keeps your curls bouncy and full and 0.5% Phytanriol which minimizes breakage.”
I mean that sounds good right? I feel like you could also perfectly use this if you have straight sleek hair.
Price €9,80 // ±$10.80
Peptide Volumizing Hair Treatment
Another one that is pretty high on my wishlist! Peptides are basically the building blocks of the proteins in our skin and hair. It is therefore also the building block of keratin, which your hair is made of. By adding it to your hair (or skin) it can help rebuild the broken parts of your hair.
The Inkey List also added some cool ingredients such as Keranutri, ASB Pisum Sativu, Peptide and Betaine. I am pretty sure I will buy this one, so I will go deeper into these ingredients in the review!
Price: €12,20 // ±$13.40
Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Hair Treatment
This hair treatment is mainly meant to hydrate (duh), and therefore making your hair less frizzy. Creating a more sleek and soft look. It also has castor oil, panthene and betaine. All good haircare goodies!
Price: €12,20 // ±$13.40
Shea Oil Nourishing Hair Treatment
Okay, this one is not really on my wishlist. It’s basically shea oil, Jojoba seed oil, and a solvent. I mean it’s good for your hair, but I don’t really need it. But if you are into simple straightforward haircare this might be for you.
Price: €12,20 // ±$13.40
Amino Acid Anti-Gray Scalp Treatment
I am not proud to say, I think I found a my first gray hair a few weeks ago. So far it hasn’t come back and I am still hoping it was just a fluke or a very very blonde hair. But I mean we all get there one day…. So if this hair treatment would work, that would be amazing!
The Cultbeauty website states:
“With 1% proprietary Darkenyl which works to reactivate pigment in your follicles and ward against development of greys, alongside 1% Betaine to nourish and soften and 1% panthenol to maintain moisture levels so your lengths feel sleek and silky, this overnight formula not only helps to pre-empt but reverse loss of pigment. In clinical trials, the proportion of white hair was shown to reduce by as much as 56% when used consistently for four months – a staggering result that’s tipped to change the way the industry approaches grey hair care.”
If that research is performed well, that’s very promising!! So if you have developed some greying, this one is for you! I will definitely remember this one for future reference.
Price: €18,30 // ±$20.00
I can’t wait to get my hands on these products! I think I will settle for 2 or 3, it kind of depends on le budget. Which ones do you want to try?
