I had just gotten back from my honeymoon in the Bahamas. Along with my a new husband, my suitcase, and wonderful memories, I came back with damaged hair. Between the long flights, harsh Caribbean sun, and salty sea, my hair was dry, irritated, and flat.

So what did I do? I cut it off.

When friends and family first saw what I had done, they always asked, “Why would you cut your beautiful hair?”, to which I replied, “I need a change”. But the truth was that I was sick of all the work it took to maintain shiny, healthy hair while traveling. I thought cutting my hair was the solution, but a few months later after a trip to Puerto Rico, I was faced with the same hair problems. However, I found the solution!

Fast-forward to today, my hair is one of my favorite “props” in photos. From Cozumel to China, my hair is healthy, strong, shiny, and soft. The sun didn’t get any weaker. The sea didn’t get any less salty. The flights have not gotten shorter. So what’s my secret?

Coconut milk. That is why I am so excited to partner with Herbal Essences to feature their bio:renew Coconut Milk Shampoo or Conditioner and share with you the ultimate way to keeping happy and healthy hair.

Really? Coconut Milk?

Yes! This coconut milk-infused collection infuses hair with moisture, no matter the environment.

Coconuts are special because they are so resilient. Wild coconuts grow in some of the harshest environments of sun and salt. They spread by floating in the sea from island to island. A coconut is actually a seed, a fruit, and a nut, making them a unique product to use in any circumstance. Inside the brown, hard, and hairy exterior of the coconut lies the coconut milk.

I’m sure a lot of you already know about the benefits of coconut milk from a dietary perspective, but it also helps from a hair health stance as well. Coconut milk has been linked to promoting hair growth, increasing hair volume, and reducing greasy hair. The fact coconuts grow their own “hair” naturally is just nature’s testament to the power of coconut milk.

It also smells fantastic. Nothing puts you into a tropical mood faster than the smell of coconut.

Ok, so where do I get this?

I’m sure you can tell, I’m all in on coconut milk. That is why I partnered with Herbal Essences to help them get more people onto the coconut milk bandwagon with me. Everyone has heard of Herbal Essences.

They have partnered with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew on their entire bio:renew line of shampoo and conditioner. Kew Gardens is a 260-year-old, world-famous botanical garden and scientific institution dedicated to plant science, herbal medicine, and conservation. Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew have authenticated that Herbal Essences uses real botanical ingredients, which are traceable back to the original source, high-quality and consistent in every bottle of Herbal Essences bio:renew.

So when you buy a Herbal Essences bio:renew Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner, you can trust the coconut milk you are putting into your hair isn’t some diabolical laboratory concoction. That’s why the only shampoo and conditioner in my shower is Herbal Essences bio:renew Coconut Milk.

It’s just a perk that Herbal Essences bio:renew Coconut Milk Shampoo & Conditioner are pH balanced and color-safe. If you do want to go 100% beach-vibe and dye that hair blonde before your trip to the tropics, this shampoo and conditioner won’t stop you from having healthy hair no matter the color.

Everyone wants to look fabulous in every vacation picture they ever take. Greasy hair after a long flight, thin hair after a week of that “vacation diet”, or just dull hair after a few hours in the sun and sea all will ruin a good snap. Use Herbal Essences bio:renew with Coconut Milk to hydrate your locks and ensure you look fantastic from head to toe.
