Belegenza™ Hair Care Review

I have been using natural hair care products for many years and I have not always been satisfied with the performance of many of those products, especially conditioners and treatments that just couldn’t detangle or smooth my long highlighted hair. I am thrilled that the quality of natural hair care products just continues to get better and better in performance with such quality hair care lines as Belegenza™.

Belegenza™ has a complete line of salon quality, luxurious natural hair care products.

The entire line is:

  • Silicone Free
  • Mineral Oil Free
  • Petroleum Free
  • Paraben Free
  • Salt Free
  • Phalate Free
  • Urea Free
  • SLS Free

So what does it have? Belegeza™ products are packed full of nourishing aloe, seaweed, rosemary extract, sage, green tea and fruit extracts like lemon and apple.

Many people that I talk to don’t like that natural shampoos do not have much lather and I admit that it bothered me at first too. After much reading, I realized that the lather is actually a result of SLS which can be very harsh and drying to the hair. The first product that I tried in the Belegenza™ hair care line is the IlLustrous Shampoo which did not lather very much (it is SLS free) but my hair did feel squeaky clean but not dry. After the third use I noticed that I did get a bit more sudsing action. Overall, it was a very nice shampoo and I really liked that it is concentrated so a little bit goes a long way.

The RoMANce Deep Conditioning was such a luxurious treat for my hair which tends to be very dry and frizzy without a really good conditioner. I used this product by washing my hair and then applying to my hair. I left it in while I took the rest of my shower and then washed it out (approximately 5-10 minutes). My hair was much easier to comb out and it felt much softer and silkier. I even used it as a leave in deep conditioner one day while I was getting ready for a big event and after being on my hair for 45 minutes, I rinsed it out and dried and flat ironed it and it looked better than it has a in a long time. Even my husband and the babysitter commented on how shiny ad smooth it looked.

My favorite product that I tried in the Belegenza™ hair care line is the SpotLite Shine Hair Serum. I was shocked that a product that does not contain silicone could still provide the most amazing, shiny results but this product really delivers. I live in Florida and the humidity typically causes my straightened (naturally curly) hair to be full of frizz within just a few minutes. When I applied a few drops of SpotLite prior to straightening, the flat iron just went down my hair shaft and it was pin straight and very shiny. In fact, for the first time I had a product that kept my hair style straight for two days in a row and that is almost unheard of for my hair! I used it for several weeks and there was not built up or greasy residue. In fact my hair looks healthier than ever and I am not noticing a lot of split ends either (it has been eight weeks since my last hair cut). This will be one product that is a “must have” in my hair care arsenal.

Overall I was very impressed with the Belegenza™ hair care line and there are several products that I will continue to use on a regular basis. Belegenza™ has a full line of quality hair and skin care products and there are shampoos, conditioners, treatments, styling products etc. You are invited to view the entire collection at the Belegenza™ website. I know that I am excited to try some of the other products in the line, especially the skin care products line.
