Happy (early) Valentines Day my wonderful friends, family and Silver Sisters!!! In celebration of this lovey-dovey holiday, we've teamed up with another wonderful hair care line to bring everyone AN EXCITING OFFER!!!
Friends, I'd like you to meet: QuickSilverHair! QuickSilver is the fantastic, one of-a-kind creation of Joli Campbell. Joli, a fellow silver sister and curly girl (you can read her interesting story HERE), set out to craft for the silver community a chemical-free and cruelty-free hair mask and hair oil to help us whiten and brighten and shine!
Her hair mask system for brightening is so unique that there's nothing like it available to us, and I was thrilled when Joli approached me and asked if I wanted to try QuickSilverHair. I said: "YES, I would love to!" almost before she could even get the words out. It was really exciting, as I've been eyeing her line for quite some time. We decided to do a product swap - Joli tried some of our BY THE WAY, Your Hair Looks Fabulous!™, and I spent a month using QuickSilverHair.
This post is about my experience using QuickSilver. It was such a nice nice way to pamper and care for my hair, and something that you might be curious about giving a shot too! You end up with lusciously soft hair, but also have a great, relaxing time! In the process of swapping, we realized that our products compliment each other very well, which I will explain a bit more in-depth later. This is what lead to such a nice idea from Joli - that we offer all of our readers a joint Valentine's Day coupon to QuickSilverHair and The By The Way Company!
First, let's start with all of the fun that I had while using QuickSilver's hair mask and oil and my results. Meant to brighten and soften your tresses, the wonderfully hydrating hair mask is made of pure Kaolin white clay. The only other ingredients are organic cornstarch and natural essential oils, so it's extra gentle. I've noticed that the 5 oz. tin of clay and the 50ml. bottle of hair oil has gone a long, long way! I've done three treatments so far and I've still only used up 1/4 of my product if that. I like the value in what QuickSilver offers, as each tin and bottle last a long time.
Joli is well versed in the needs of those with fragrance and chemical allergies, which is important to me and to many others as well. She uses the pure essential oils only.
The clay mask is lightly scented and often described as "fresh and clean" with notes of grapefruit, lavender and bergamot. I personally have a difficult time introducing new scents to my own routine and the clay was just fine! To activate the mask, Joli recommends using 7-10 drops of her Hair Oil. This oil has a lovely earthy, fresh smell and again, is made of natural essential oils. There are warm notes of ginger and lavender and a nice nutty scent due to the activating Sweet Almond, Sunflower, Argan and Jojoba oils. It was fantastic with the hot steam of a shower, I felt like I was at a luxurious spa! If you do have very particular scent needs, Joli mentioned that in lieu of her hair oil, you can use a dropper full of your own Argan, Jojoba, or Coconut oil.
See the scrumptious packaging below? They came in the mail lovingly sent, and I feel they would make a elegant gift for anyone going gray. I could picture giving the set to any silver sister newbie just on her adventure, or gray hair graduate for her birthday, any holiday or just to say: "You're great!"
After the clay and oil, the only other thing that you need to get your mask ready is some silicone-free conditioner of your choice. This is where we come in! 😃 Joli and I found that our By The Way Co. Daily Moisturizing Conditioner worked absolutely wonderfully with the mask and oil! After leaving the mask on for 40 minutes, and in conjunction with our silicone-free conditioner, my hair was left as soft as can be. It was shiny, tangle-free and brightened.
What's more, after some fun discussion, for my second mask usage, I did an experiment with our also silicone-free Purple Conditioner. The results - soft and bright. While those with more yellowing or brassy tones than I have might experience more whitening with purple conditioner, I can also say that I had no purple staining of my hair or scalp after leaving the mask + purple conditioner on for 30 minutes.
Below is a photo that I took after mixing the QuickSilverHair mask and oil together with our purple conditioner. Doesn't it look delicious!? (DON'T EAT IT!) Joli instructs her customer to mix everything to about a "frosting" consistency, and can I just tell you...... I had the MOST FUN EVER, imagining that I was putting frosting on my hair. I was laughing out loud because it was just so enjoyable. If you decide to us a non-purple conditioner, which is equally great, your mixture will look just as luscious as below, only pure white.
Before using your hair mask, it is suggested that you wash your hair with a silicone-free clarifying shampoo. Again, our own BTW Co. Clarifying Shampoo worked great for this. I washed my hair, slathered on the mask (WOO HOO!!!!) and then relaxed for 30 minutes before washing everything out. Joli sends each order with very specific usage instructions, and you can also find the information on her WEBSITE with this perfect infographic.
And there you have it! A match made in heaven for healthy hair this Valentines Day! 💕💕💕
USE THE COUPON CODE BTWHappyHeartsQSH FOR 15% OFF AT BOTH QuickSilverHair AND The BTW CO.* FROM FEBRUARY 7 - FEBRUARY 14!
I hope that you enjoyed this little review adventure as much as I did. It's wonderful that more and more people are accepting and acknowledging those of us who, by choice or not, do not color our hair. Even more exciting is the future and possibilities of products out there just for us! 😄😄😄
Until next time, love your hair and Happy Valentine's Day!!!!
