SEEN Hair Care Honest Review
It’s true that beauty editors are sent a lot of products to test and write about — that being said, not all products are created equal. While it’s awesome to receive gifted products, ultimately they are viewed and scrutinized through the lens of a real consumer, because after all what’s the point of sharing something you wouldn’t recommend to your own friends, family and self? We’re happy report that upon using SEEN hair care, Squeaky Deals has given the clean beauty hair care line the stamp of approval. Here’s our break down of each product and how the skin-loving products performed.
SEEN Shampoo retails for $29 at helloseen.com.
First, let’s start by describing the climate and hair issues faced prior to using SEEN hair care. Now that the summer months are finally here, humidity, heat and UV damage are all major factors that play a role in hair care and styling. That being said, a nourishing formula that’s able to replenish without stripping good oils is key. The SEEN shampoo was a luxurious experience start to finish that delivered on this need. A decadent scent lathered into a rich cream that left hair feeling clean without over drying.
- Decadent clean scent.
- Rich lather that was easy to work through hair.
- Cleaned without leaving hair dry or stripped.
- Contains fragrance (fragrance-free option is available).
- Had to use more product than normal but was not extreme.
- Price is on mid-high end for shampoo.
SEEN conditioner retails for $26 at helloseen.com.
Environmental and styling damage makes a high quality conditioner a non-compromise in the summer heat. Dealing with these hair woes can feel like a constant tit-for-tat battle of needing just the right amount of product to address and control stubborn frizz, while remaining lightweight enough for a staggered wash schedule. Summer activities like swimming in chlorine and saltwater can cause damage to color and dry brittle hair from over-washing. The SEEN conditioner was able to rejuvenate locks and add a healthy amount of shine without being oily. After following use of SEEN’s shampoo, SEEN condition left hair soft and supple.
- Lightweight formula.
- Easy to rinse-out.
- Left hair soft and supple.
- Contains fragrance.
- Mid-to-High price point.
SEEN Blow-Out Creme retails for $24 at helloseen.com.
Part of combating summer hair drama before it starts is styling and in this case it required the SEEN Blow-Out Creme. After washing and allowing hair to air dry some, the Blow-Out Creme is applied to damp hair and worked through from roots to ends. Using the beloved Conair Knot Doctor oval blow drying brush and sectioning hair, the creme worked to speed up time needed to achieve a voluminous look. Not only was styling time reduced, but hair was left shiny and frizz-free and held for second day hair as well! Needless to say, the SEEN Blow-Out Creme has earned its spot in our hair styling routine.
- Reduce styling time.
- Protect against heat damage.
- Frizz control
- Lightweight oil.
- Some sections looked greasy and required more styling.
- Contains fragrance.
- Depending on amount used, could leave hair oily.
The Knot Dr. All-In-One Dryer Brush by Conair retails for $24.70 at amazon.com.
What is SEEN Hair Care?
SEEN hair care is the first of its kind for being skin-loving hair care. Developed by dermatologist Dr. Iris Rubin, Rubin noticed a pattern of breakouts after visiting the salon. This along with the frustration from clients struggling with skin issues, Rubin decided to take a closer look at the ingredients used in hair care products. From this SEEN hair care was born and has since brought clean, vegan hair care line to those who struggle with common skin concerns like eczema, dry scalp, acne, fragrance sensitivity and irritation caused by harmful ingredients. SEEN has exhaustive science behind each product to directly mitigate issues causing concerns with products that won’t clog pores — because after all, what you put on your hair ends up on your skin.
