Éprouvage Replenishing Leave-In Conditioner Review

Eprouvage Replenishing Leave-In Conditioner

Anyone who knows me knows that I don’t like to do much to my hair on a regular basis. Which is why I’m almost always in a bun because it’s simple, quick and doesn’t take much effort at all. Just a little water, oil and leave-in conditioner. That’s it. For months, I’ve been using Creme of Nature’s Argan Oil Strength & Shine Leave-In Conditioner with great results but I received the new Éprouvage Replenishing Leave-In Conditioner in my gratis bag from Ulta and was curious to see how it would work for my thick, dry relaxed hair.

The Éprouvage haircare line is a new addition to Ulta that’s designed to help fight aging hair and hair loss using progressive plant technology. The line is color safe and free of sulfates, parabens and gluten so it’s great for women of all walks of life and all hair types. Including my thick, dry relaxed strands. At first, I was a little skeptical to try the Éprouvage Replenishing Leave-In Conditioner because I don’t have problems with aging hair or hair loss just yet. However, I was pleasantly surprised once I started using it because I noticed that the Replenishing Leave-In Conditioner works wonders for cutting down on shedding and breakage–which is a huge problem for relaxed hair. Relaxers weaken the hair shaft and causes hair to feel dry and brittle so I’m always on the hunt for a solid leave-in conditioner that help keep my strands moisturized and healthy. Surprisingly, I think Éprouvage has nailed it!
