Arbonne Pure Vibrance hydrates hair to prevent further breakage, inspiring strength and confidence from root to tip. Arbonne Pure Vibrance. The hair you always wanted." - Arbonne
Firstly, I'm completely into the colour block-type styling. Each of the products is dressed in a variant of purple (from indigo to raspberry) giving everything a modern-chic feel. I love it. As for what's in the bottles, it pleases me just as much. As you may know, I'm all about a bold (and completely unnatural) hair colour. Since most bright dyes are semi-permanent, I take great efforts to only use colour-safe products to baby my hue and keep it vivid as long as possible.
The Arbonne Pure Vibrance Lustre Fortifying Shampoo and Fortifying Creme Conditioner are the perfect duo for cleansing and hydrating (and work well reversed if that's what you're into.) The shampoo is fortified with rice extract, artichoke leaf extract, and sage leaf extract to add shine and help restore lustre to chemically treated hair while cleansing without drying . It features the ColourLast technology which is said to retain colour vibrancy and longevity for up to 20 washes. I haven't gotten to 20 washes yet, but I love that this shampoo is concentrated, meaning you can get a nice low-lather going without having to use a ton of product.
The conditioner boasts argan oil, rice and linseed extract, and vicia faba seed extract as it's key ingredients and works to maximize colour longevity (thanks to ColourLast) while adding hydration. It fortifies hair to prevent breakage and damage and gives mositure to dry chemically treated hair. I quite like that this conditioner leave my hair feeling really silky but isn't heavy and detangles really well. My hair tangles at an alarming rate, especially when wet, so I appreciate being able to get a wide tooth comb through it.
Arbonne Pure Vibrance ColourLast Hair Spray 148 ml $30 USD / $36 CAD | Arbonne Pure Vibrance ColourLast Serum 50 ml $30 USD / $36 CAD
The range features a few styling products, with Pure Vibrance ColourLast Serum and Hair Spray. The serum is.... amazing! I was very impressed at how great my hair felt the first time I used it. I rarely ever blow dry my hair, but do appreciate how smooth a good blow dry leaves my hair feeling. This serum recreates that super silky/smooth feel sans heat. It's magical. The formula features linseed, and argan and abyssinian oil to create a weightless serum that prevents colour from fading, controls frizz, protects styling damage and adds shine. It's a must-have!
To finish things off, the Pure Vibrance ColourLast Hair Spray offers light-weight, flexible, touchable hold that also works to keep your collour vibrant and protected from the sun. It features panthenol (a moisturizer/ form of vitamin B5) white tea leaf extract and linseed extract and comes in a non-aerosol mister. I wasn't sure what to expect- would it mist fine enough or douse me in product? but there is nothing to worry about. The mist is very fine and is easily applied in a fine layer. I liked that it offered decent hold to keep my curls and style in place, but wasn't heavy or stiff feeling.
Overall, this is a really great range! It also includes a texturizing mousse and deep conditioner/mask should you need it all (I won't judge.) I'm really pleased with all of the products, but if it's just one thing you need, it's the serum. It just leaves hair so soft and perfect feeling. It's well worth the price. What do you think? Could you hair benefit from any of these products?
