Have you ever done a hair dance? Ever heard of a Hair Dance?
Hair Dance is a hair solutions company founded by Anna Kerutis. She founded her company for the same reason so many successful entrepreneurs do: she was looking for a product that didn’t exist. As you know, hair products are not one size fits all and Anna’s story compelled me because I have hair similar to hers.
Yes, we’re both blessed with naturally thin hair. Her hair also happens to be fragile and mine happens to be fine. It took me a long time to learn that I’d never have the Farrah Fawcett hair of my dreams. But I can work with what I have by keep it healthy and that’s a lesson that Anna wants to teach to many others out there.
After developing her own dry shampoo, she learned more about what is and isn’t necessary in hair products and decided to develop a complete all natural treatment for healthy hair and scalp.
Since I’ve been spending a lot of time in the summer sun and in chlorinated water, I thought it might be a perfect time to treat my summer hair.
The Hair Dance Treatment
The Hair Dance Treatment consists of the following, all of which I had the chance to try:
Nature’s Treatment Shampoo
I’m going to spend the most time talking about this shampoo because it’s unlike any shampoo you’ve used before. And it definitely takes some getting used to. First of all, you need to shake it and shake it well before using it. And be prepared for the color. This doesn’t have all of the chemicals to make it look soap and pearlescent. In fact, it uses Vitamin C and Apple Cider Vinegar which may even cause a change in the color of the product over time (which is totally normal).
It’s also sulfate free and so it will produce very little lather. They recommended that if it felt like I needed more product, I should add more water instead. So that’s exactly what I did. I used enough shampoo to make sure I covered my scalp and then added more water to help work it through my hair.
See? NO LATHER. This went against everything I know about washing my hair but I went with it. I especially loved how clean it made my scalp feel due to key ingredients.
Green Tea = high in antioxidants
Apple Cider Vinegar = promotes healthy scalp
Avocado Oil = moisturizes and nourishes
Peppermint Oil = stimulates follicles
Moisture and Strength Conditioner
There wasn’t anything special about the conditioner from a use perspective except to say that it went on easily and rinsed off easily. Conditioner is important to me because it means the difference between a knotty head of hair and something that allows me to run my fingers through. But the heaviest conditioners will completely weigh everything down. This was the perfect weight of conditioner for my hair.
Its key ingredients include Walnut Seed Oil, Aloe Vera, Silk Protein, Vitamin B5, Lemongrass, Apple Fruit Powder, Chamomile, Sage, Nettle,Rosemary, and Vitamin E, all designed for soft, shiny, and healthy hair.
Ultra-Light Instant Conditioning Spray
I only tried this one a few times because I felt that the Moisture and Strength Conditioner provided me the right balance. But I can tell you that it is ultra-light because when I did use it, I couldn’t feel any residue at all (which I often feel with “leave-in conditioners”). Based on the key ingredients, I think this is an excellent choice if you plan to do any heat styling with your hair.
Green Tea, Aloe Vera, and Silk Protein = penetrate, strengthen, nourish, and moisturize the hair
Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen = add volume
Vitamin B5 = add shine and protect the hair from breakage
Silky Touch Dry Shampoo
They can’t all be perfect, can they? I’m admittedly not a huge fan of dry shampoo anyway. When my hair feels oily, I actually want to shampoo it so I only use dry shampoo in a pinch. This is actually a powder and when I applied it to my hair, it looked like I had a dusting of baby powder on my head!
I tried to work it in but with no success. I’m sure I would need more practice with this type of dry shampoo but I just didn’t love it. I do love the ingredients though.
Rejuvenating Hair Oil
If you have fine, thin hair like mine, oil is probably the last thing you want to get near your hair. Even though Indian cultures rely on oil to keep their hair silky, it just makes mine greasy. But since I color my hair and also had the American Wave recently, I thought my ends might not be so happy. So I used a few sprays of the Rejuvenating Hair Oil and…
It was a greasy mess.
But that’s because I used too much the first time I used it and I applied it to dry hair.
Once I actually read the directions, I learned that one spritz in my hand is just enough to work through the ends of my damp hair and it dries beautifully. And it smells like cookies!
The oil is actually an all natural, unique blend of Walnut, Argan, Avocado, Wheat Germ, Coconut, Grapeseed oils and Shea Butter formulated to promote strong and healthy hair
Hair and Root Stimulator
Finally, the Hair and Root Stimulator is the product I feel least qualified to talk about. I only used it a few times (usually applied before bed when I planned to shampoo my hair the next morning). If you’re looking to increase your hair growth, this is the one you’ll want to use over time.
What’s fascinating is that one of the ingredients is caffeine, which has been shown to promote hair growth (I’m not even kidding).
Additional ingredients include plant extracts and antioxidants, including: Green Tea, Aloe Vera, Witch Hazel, Apple Cider Vinegar, L-Arginine, Caffeine, Menthol, Sage and Nettle Extracts, and Essential Oils from Thyme, Rosemary, Cedarwood Bark, and Lavender.
The End Result of Hair Dance
I’ve been using Hair Dance for a few weeks now and I have to say that I’ve (mostly) overcome my need for lather in my shampoo and found that my hair looks, smells, and feels great. And I feel better knowing that I’ve eliminated so many chemicals from my hair.
