A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of teaming with Herbal Essences to try out their new Naked Collection. It’s a line free of heavy residues and I loved their ethos of taking your hair to its naked state where the beauty comes from hair being healthy and natural. I think most of us can agree that it’s easier to have a great day when you’re loving your hair. To really take the idea of beauty coming from health, Herbal Essences curated a beautiful day of mindfulness for me to enjoy while I tested out the line of products.
I started my day by meeting with their lead celebrity stylist, Charles Baker Strahan, who helped me understand how the Naked collection is a more premium line from the brand that is free of parabens and dyes. After talking through my hair type we decided to use the Herbal Essences Smooth & Soft Collection to help nourish my hair. The shampoo is silicone-free and Charles had an amazing level of knowledge of the products and gave me tons of helpful tips. My favorite tip is using Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo after styling clean hair to help keep the style in place longer. We decided to give me a Bridget Bardot inspired look to carry me through the rest of my day. I loved the way my hair felt light and not weighed down by the products.
My next stop was at Cook LA where I worked with a private chef to create two stunning vegetarian meals. We made a quinoa salad with citrus dressing and spring rolls. I have always wanted to learn how to make spring rolls, but they’re a little trickier than you might think.
My last stop was at Unplug Meditation. I had a personalized guided meditation session. I never thought I’d have the patience for something like this but it was surprisingly relaxing and invigorating. I can see myself going again.
Throughout the whole day my hair felt light, clean, healthy and shiny. The scent was also amazing. I really loved trying the new Herbal Essences Naked Collection. The best part is that it’s wildly accessible and easy to find.
