This morning I will be writing about the AS I AM hair product line. Click here to visit the AS I AM Website. I have been using their products for about a year now. These products were designed for more coarse hair than I have, however, they have made a huge difference in my hair and I adore the line. It is very affordable and contains quality ingredients. Nothing in them coats or dries out the hair. Smells amazing but the scent dissipates quickly and will not interfere with your perfume choice of the day.
I apply the product to my hair quickly and replace the lid onto the tub. Then I work the product through my hair. I concentrate on my roots and scalp and then squeeze through the length of my hair. Comb through your hair, while the product is in, with a wide tooth comb. Massage throughout the scalp. Leave it in your hair while you wash up and complete your shower. Rise out completely. You hair will feel soft as if already conditioned.
*After washing with the CO Hair Wash, I shut the shower off and gently squeeze out the extra water in my hair (do NOT towel dry). Then I flip my hair over and shake it out a bit especially at the roots. I grab my bottle of the AS I AM Leave In Conditioner and applying right away while my hair is still soaking wet. Apply the Leave In Conditioner to the palm of your hands and rub your palms together a bit before applying to your hair. I glaze over the outside of the hair before working it through the rest with gentle squeezing up towards the scalp. Then I use that wide toothed comb to comb it through (sometimes I skip the combing if I wish to have more fullness). After I comb it through I Scrunch hair upwards towards my scalp using a bit more of the Leave In Conditioner and only my hands (no towel!) without disturbing the hair pattern too much. You want it messy. Do not rub hair, just gently squeeze upwards. The hair will make squishy sounds
**If you would like to scrunch some additional water out of your style, so that it will dry a bit faster, proceed as follows after you have completed the steps above marked by * through *. Put on a pair of all cotton gloves or, use an all cotton T-shirt and gently flip hair over, taking care not to disturb the hair too much.
Once a month I will wash with the AS I AM cleansing pudding. Shown here, it is in a tub. Mine arrived in a tall bottle like my Leave In Conditioner pictured above. It is a bit difficult to get out of the taller bottle and I would prefer the tub. It is non lathering but designed to remove buildup on the hair. I follow that with the Hydration Elation. I go through the Leave In Conditioner quickly because I use it as a styling product as well as a leave in conditioner. At Walgreens Website you can catch a deal with free shipping and grab several of the AS I AM products to try with the free shipping at $25.00 deal! Or, you can order directly from the AS I AM website for free shipping at $35.00. Sallys Beauty Supply carries this line as well as many other retailers but my best price has been Walgreens. I have also ordered from Amazon.com though the deals are rarely as good. I have noticed a few products that might be new additions to their line on their website! I may need to give them a try soon!
I have written the company in the past to tell them how thrilled I am with their products and to mention to them that, although the products were meant for a different hair type, they leave my fine, long, partially gray hair looking in the best shape it has in years. However, I never heard back. Not even a thank you :0( sadness. Oh well, I still love AS I AM! This line tops my Mane and Tail review listing elsewhere on my blog! You can search my earlier posts for that review if you have interest.
Feel free to write with any questions. When I get excited about a product I can forget to mention something important! I will be glad to get back to you. Please do not post spam messages, they will get deleted before they post.
