hair therapy: GG Gatsby hair products

don't judge a book by it's cover; it's what's on the inside that counts…

those wise words or i should say, phrases, above, to me, perfectly exemplify the GG Gatsby line of products i was sent to try recently. if you've read my blog long enough, you know i lean toward posting about things i like and find worthy to be used. i'm all about sharing the positive.

while my experience with these GG Gatsby hair products has been really good, i do have one gripe and need to get  it out of the way first: i don't like the labeling.

they look like they were printed out at home and stuck on generic bottles. this is my personal opinion and really my only problem regarding these products. maybe since the brand is relatively new {i believe just a little more than 2 years old}, this will {hopefully} improve over time.

ok, i've said enough! on to the good stuff ~ read on for my take on 4 stand-out products that i think are definitely worth checking out, regardless of what's on the outside...

GG Gatsby Straight Away Shampoo
when i first used this shampoo, i thought it was the conditioner. the consistency and texture leans more on the creamy side; it's gentle and sulfate-free, but still creates a rich lather. i love how this cleanses without stripping my hair of moisture, and since it's formulated with keratin, soy protein, and date fruit oil it aids in improving hair elasticity, reducing frizz and adding extra shine.

GG Gatsby Straight Away Conditioner
formulated with keratin, soy protein and avocado oil, this conditioner, in contrast to the shampoo, is very thin in consistency; i'm so used to using highly moisturizing conditioners {they're typically thick and creamy in consistency}, so when i first poured it in my hand, i was a bit surprised at this. thankfully, i have many years of using beauty products under my belt,  so i know that products have to be used to fully know how well they work. all of this is to say i love this conditioner. what it lacks in bulk, it makes up for by giving my hair gorgeous softness, less frizz and more shine.

GG Gatsby Set It Straight Straightening Balm
this fabulous, lightweight cream smells great, works as it says it will, and always leaves my hair looking better. when blow drying it speeds up dry time, so i can't help but love that. the heat-activated balm is formulated with keratin protein, date fruit, avocado and babassu oils to hydrate, soften, protect and smooth hair cuticle this balm performs beautifully on my hair, leaving it soft, sleek and more healthy looking.

GG Gatsby Supershine Dry Oil Mist
out of all these products, this one is my fave. the formula, infused with argan and sunflower oil, this ultra lightweight dry il is versatile and a fabulous multitasker. the quick absorbing beauty isn't just for hair, but skin and nails as well. just as it promises it is highly moisturizing and not greasy.
