Let’s talk about hair care and Marc Anthony’s new and improved Grow Long Range!



Let’s face it, shampoo and conditioners are the main products in everyone’s hair care routine. However, the ingredients that are found in some shampoos and conditioners can be harmful to the hair and scalp and can cause breakage, fallout, and may damage the hair.

But do you really know what you are putting onto your hair? Do you really trust the brand you invest money in? That is why it is important to know what ingredients are in your hair care products, especially when it comes to the shampoo and conditioner you use.

With so much emphasis being put on good skin care and skin health, why are we as humans not shining the spotlight on hair health and hair care


What constitutes as a good shampoo or conditioner?

The criteria of having a good shampoo and conditioner is that it does not have any harmful or damaging ingredients, but instead uses natural ingredients. Harmful ingredients that should be avoided in shampoos and conditioners include sulfates, parabens, silicones, and isopropyl alcohol amongst many others, which are all damaging and can cause irritation as well as dryness. On the other hand, a good shampoo and conditioner should have ingredients that are good for the hair, which includes essential oils, vitamins, and hydrolyzed proteins. Next time you go on the hunt for a good shampoo and conditioner keep this in mind.

But it’s the “Long Hair, Don’t Care” GROW LONG Collection that has peaked our interest for its strikingly bold colour, attention to detail, and need for longer, thicker, more voluptuous hair. With a slogan that states, “Long hair play for every day. Get the strength you need to go strong and grow long,” it was only natural that our palms were itching to get our hands on these glorious products.


GROW LONG SUPER FAST STRENGTH SHAMPOO

Care for your length starting with your wash and this anti-breakage formula, blended with Caffeine, Ginseng and Vitamin E.

Designed to remove build-up from the hair and scalp while helping to prevent moisture-loss and keep your hair strong, long and with less breakage.

What we loved: The smell is infectious; the texture was luxurious and lathering; and the amount you were able to get out of one bottle was worth the price.

Results after 1 month: We could definitely feel a distinct difference in the thickness and texture of our hair, as for length, only time will tell to determine if it grows quicker than usual but the quality and state of our hair was significantly healthier.

What we didn’t like: It was very difficult to find a negative regarding this product, as we simply LOVED it, but in terms of price, if you were to purchase the entire range, you could start denting your wallet (but it would be worth it!)


GROW LONG SUPER FAST STRENGTH CONDITIONER

Follow up your wash with our anti-breakage, conditioning formula, blended with Caffeine, Ginseng and Vitamin E. Bring in the moisture that leaves long hair feeling soft, silky, smooth and shiny. Detangles tough to comb lengths.

Stronger, healthier looking hair that’s ready to go when you are.

What we loved: A little goes a long way. This conditioner not only smells delicious but treats your hair with love and care – leaving it stronger and healthier. Plus, it is for all hair types – a bug yes!

Results after 1 month: If you suffer from dry, brittle hair, this conditioner is for you. Wow! Silky, smooth and softer hair is guaranteed.

What we didn’t like: The texture wasn’t as creamy as we expected but it most certainly met our expectations in all other regards.


LONG GROW SUPER STRENGTH LEAVE IN CONDITIONER

Long hair. Endless possibilities. With Caffeine, Ginseng, and Vitamin E on your side, this leave-in Conditioner gives hair the moisture and strength it needs to help reduce split ends and breakage - and reduce cuts we might add. The extra detangling formula makes combing long hair a breeze. Formulated to help you achieve those perfect lengths, without limits.

What we loved: Your hair feels alive, with the Caffeine, Ginseng, and Vitamin E, it gives your hair new life! This product is great for those days when you want to not only pamper yourself, but give your hair some extra TLC. For coloured treated hair, no colour was stripped or damaged.

Results after 1 month: Less breakage, less split ends, more strength.

What we didn’t like: Dependent on the amount applied, you can land up looking like your hair is dirty and/or greasy, but the product is secretly working its magic.
