Onesta {Brand Feature}

Sorry guys, I haven't been posting as much lately, work has been keeping me pretty busy. But I wanted to do a {Brand Feature} of one of my absolute favorite haircare lines, Onesta. This is definitely in my top category overall, and in the top two for Organic/Natural/Cruelty Free/Vegan lines. I first learned about this line from my hair salon which exclusively uses their products and I fell in love immediately. Check out their salon finder on their website, http://onestahaircare.com/

Onesta uses natural plant based formulas which are free of parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, propylene glycol, DEA, TEA, colors, dyes, animal testing and animal ingredients. Their shampoo and conditioner bottles are used with 100% recycled plastic, they use USDA certified organic extracts  and donate 10% of their net income to cancer research.

I had the opportunity to test out these four products: Strengthening Shampoo. Daily Conditioner, Create Liquid Setting Mist, and the Play Paste. As following my typical format, I will list the company product descriptions and then I will list my thoughts.

Strengthening Shampoo
contains certified organic extracts of Fenugreek, Calendula, and Dandelion. These extracts help make the hair more resilient, adding shine, softness, and elasticity to the hair.

Daily Conditioner
contains certified organic extracts of Horsetail, Dulse, and Sea Kelp. These extracts, rich in nutrients from the sea, work together to strengthen and soften hair, leaving it silky and more resilient without weighing the hair down


My thoughts:
  • I love, love, love these and I love the effects I get while using these together
  • I have a TON of shower products and a ton of shampoo and conditioners, but I reach for these daily. 
  • These have such a light citrus smell to them and make my hair feel like silk while showering..which is no easy feat for frizzy tangled curly hair! 
  • I love I don't have to worry about what chemicals are getting into my scalp and hair
  • These make my hair super soft, shiny, and manageable. 
  • 100% Jessica approved and recommended 
Play Paste
Onesta’s PlayPaste is enriched with beeswax and Onesta’a special blend of USDA certified organic green tea and milk thistle, with Rhatany Root for UV protection. For texture, lift, and separation...for your most creative Onesta "do’s!"

Create Liquid Setting Mist
gives hair texture and shine, providing lift and flexible control. Perfect for dry styling and up-dos, Create can be used with Velcro or hot rollers, curling or flat irons, to leave hair touchable and soft. Your hair will be manageable for brush-through or re-styling. Create is humidity-resistant and will protect hair from the damaging rays of the sun. Certified organic extracts of Green Tea and Milk Thistle, both rich in antioxidants, protect hair and add shine. Rhatany Root helps reduce color fading by absorbing UV light.

My thoughts:
  • The Play Paste is a very hard thick product, unlike a lot of paste/jar styling creams I've used. I grab a little of the product and rub in between my hands and then use to style with. I'm sure this is unisex, but this feels more like a product a man would love to get their hair sticking up just the way they like it!
  • The spray feels more to me like a hairspray than their hairspray does. 
  • I actually don't really like a lot of styling products that I can feel in my hair or that make my hair crunchy at all like the setting mist does, although this definitely helps shape and helps tone down my frizzes. 
  • Most hair styles that I do are very natural and loose and so I don't really need more heavy duty styling products. If you're looking for that, then these would be great for you. 
  • If you are like me, then I HIGHLY recommend their Create Finish Aerosol, which is the least hairspray like hairspray product I've ever tried. It manages to smell amazing, keep your hair in place while making it softer! Amazing!
