Nexxus has introduced a new collection that combats the damage of city living. The City Shield collection offers a reinvigorating veil of protection against environmental damage, helps control frizz, makes your hair manageable and gives a natural-looking healthy shine.
The collection includes;
City Shield Shampoo $13.99
Gently cleanses urban-stressed hair and is refreshingly fragrant so you can enjoy nourished hair that feels great and retains its natural movement. Formulated with Wheat protein, the rich formula of Nexxus City Shield shampoo for dry, frizzy hair helps rehydrate and control hair of all types – capturing natural movement while protecting hair from urban aggressors
I loved the scent of this shampoo. From the bottle it was a bit strong but while on the hair, I found it refreshing and awakening. It lathers like crazy. I felt like it took a lot of rinsing to get the shampoo residue out of my hair
City Shield Conditioner $13.99
Smoothes and nourishes hair while restoring a protective barrier that helps to shield it from damage caused by the urnab environment. Using wheat protein for hair, the formula of this Nexxus conditioner for dry hair is designed to help moisturize hair, improve manageability and reduce frizz - all the while protecting your hair fro external aggressors and retaining plenty of natural movement.
I found this conditioner quickly detangled and moisturized my hair. I had no problem at all getting my wide tooth comb through afterwards. My hair had fabulous shine the next day when I was brushing it out and virtually NO FRIZZ! Goal achieved!
City Shield Damage Defense Hair Crème 60ml - $18.99
Shields straight and fine hair from city-life damage while also providing soft hold for your style. Hair is left protected and nourished, formulated with lotus extract to achieve a manageable style that lasts throughout the day
For me this is more a styling product rather than a leave-in conditioner. The first time I applied a quarter sized amount of product. It left my hair detangle but once I had fully air dried my hair, it felt very texturized. Very much like I had spritzed dry shampoo on my hair. I have conflicting feelings whether I like or hate that. My hair had body and was so easy to style but the ends of my hair were left pretty dry. So you will need to add an oil to the ends of your hair if you have dry hair like me. The next time I used it, I used less product and the textured feeling was considerably less. So a dime sized amount is all you really need. My hair did still look shiny the next day and frizz and static were significantly reduced. I had volume on the top of head which I normally have to work to get but a quick brush and flip and I had volume. So there goes the conflict.
Nexxus has some great products. I personally love the Therappe and Humectress shampoo and conditioner. While the City Shield line left my hair pretty much frizz-free, it’s not my most favorite Nexxus product. The DD crème gave my tresses some great body and I was easily able to style my hair but I felt like it left a lot of build up in my hair.
