Howdy:

So I'm 40, but don't seem to have any effects of aging on my hair yet. However, I do have long blond highlighted hair  - very long, below the waist. My main concern is breakage, dryness, and flyaways in this California sun. 

I've used Kerastase for years, but after learning more about ingredients, I realized there really isn't anything fabulous in that $45 bottle - just a lot of silicone so it feels nice. 

So after being very pleased with Skinactives - recommended to me by my Facebook pal Hottie McNaughtie  - I decided to try the hair products. 

I have the new shampoo, conditioner, hair serum, sea kelp and some ELS. In general I wash my hair once or twice a week and never blow dry it. 

I'm thinking my new hair care regimen should be the shampoo and conditioner once or twice a week. I should use the hair care serum on the scalp every night with a little ELS, and style with the sea kelp. It seems like a lot of people here in the forum have good success with sea kelp applied after washing to the lengths and ends as a leave in conditioner. 

I expect that it will take 6-12 weeks to see any results, but I'm hopeful. SAS has certainly delivered on the skincare side, so I'm thinking I'll  have similar luck once I figure out a good hair care combo!

Thanks, Hannah! Looking forward to the detangler as well! It's very difficult to find an effective detangler.

I have found that yougurt ( full fat) applied to hair ( I apply 10 minutes or so before shampoo-ing and fully saturate my hair with it) is a very effective detangler but again my hair is not even close to your hair length but may be it ll work for you too...

Results Update: ok, it's been about a month on the hair regimen. I'm finding the vikingbabe trick of yogurt and olive oil or virgin coconut oil before washing does help with the detangling, even tho' it's a bit messy.  

I'd still love an SAS detangler, just for the convenience. The Marine shampoo does seem to rough up highlighted hair a bit; the benefits of the conditioner don't seem to appear until the hair has dried - it's light & bouncy, very soft. But there's none of that "instant smoothing" effect most commercial products give you  - probably due to the lack of the heavy silicones that appear in most products now. It can be hard to get a wide-tooth wooden comb through it.

On the other hand, the Marine products don't darken my blonde highlights the way the silicones do and my hair has more "swing."

I wash my hair only once or twice a week, but still use the hair serum every night. I just brush it through every morning and find that way it gives the roots a strong lift. After a bad highlighting incident, a dime-size patch of hair broke off right at the scalp level. (The salon did give me a refund, but I still had a "hole" at the temple!). I wanted to use the serum to help fill in this patch more quickly. 

After a month, it has begun to fill in, altho' the hairs are very short of course. So I'm thinking right now that it deserves a tentative thumbs up, and I expect to re-order. 

I would really appreciate a Marine detangler that you could leave in and that had a little bit of "something" to also help with frizz/flyaways. Is it possible to have this without the super-heavy silicones? I just don't know.

We are working on a Marine Detangler and I hope to finish production soon. We have LOTS of new actives and products on deck...but I will definitely move Marine Detangler up on the list.
