5 Step Hair Routine to Long Healthy Hair
If there’s anything in life worth splurging on, it’s yourself. Self-care is just as important and integral to healing and happiness, just as eating right, sleeping well, and hydrating yourself. For me, I’ve always put my hair as a priority, especially since I love having long locks. It just goes hand in hand that I would need to take a little more time and effort into pampering my hair. With that being said, I’m always looking for the next best products to try out since I absolutely love all things hair care (can you tell?). When it comes to hair products, yes there are so many options you can choose from. Sometimes it’s a little overwhelming figuring out where to even begin. Let me tell you something, there is definitely a difference when it comes between drug-store brand hair care and salon-quality hair care. Sure, the price tag is a little higher, but for good reason as high-quality ingredients don’t come cheap. How do I view it? An investment in myself, my hair, and my self-care.
Today I’ll be sharing with you a fantastic line of hair care products I’ve been testing this last month. Let’s get right into it.
What is Voir Hair Care?

What is Voir Hair Care?
Voir is a Canadian-owned, cruelty-free, environmentally conscious company that specializes in premium hair products. Their website is as transparent as it gets for consumers, as every product has its own featured chart on the ingredients along with its hair care purpose. Voir is particularly keen on letting us know about the ingredients they do not include in their premium product which are silicones, paragons, sulfates, TEA, mineral oil, artificial colors, or phthalates.
Their branding was inspired by aesthetics, as the term “Voir” means to see in French. This implies that Voir shares a hair experience that allows you "to see" results instantly. Currently, you can find Voir hair care products in big box stores such as Shopper Drug Mart and Hudson Bay if you are interested in checking them out.
Voir: A Walk in the Sun
This is a complete vegan collection available at Voir that aims to moisturize and repair. It can be used for all hair types but is most specifically recommended for those with dry and damaged hair caused by heat or color. The key benefits of this collection are that it promotes hair bulb nutrition, scalp micro-circulation stimulation, hair regeneration, and sheathing, as well as free radical and external aggressions protection. It is composed of 5 marine seaweed complex which contains minerals such as iron, calcium, amino acids, and more to protect and moisturize.
Like all their products, this one smells amazing, was buttery smooth to the touch, and glided on easily. After finishing off with my shampoo and conditioning, I would go in with this masque and massage it into the mid-ends of my hair. While it’s sitting in my hair, I would carry on with the rest of my shower routine before washing it off 5 minutes later. I like to do this once a week to keep my ends moisturized, healthy, and shiny.
Key ingredients: Marine seaweed complex, baobab extract, vegan keratin
After washing my hair, I like to towel dry it to a slightly damp state before going in with the Voir luxury hair oil. The oil is lightweight, which is fantastic because it will not give your hair that greasy effect that ends up weighing it down. I like to put a bit in while my hair is damp, and again just a little bit after it’s fully dried to get that full shiny effect.
This is their moisturizing heat and UV-protecting hair mist. It is a hair cuticle shield if you will. This leave-in mist is great to use before applying any heat or hot tools to your hair, as well as for when you need moisture and protection from dryness. It is great for a hair blowout. It should be used on damp hair if the purpose is to dry it with a hot tool or can be applied to dry hair before you go out for sun exposure.
You know what they say about red hair. It fades the fastest, And it is true, I’ve seen it firsthand myself. This pre-shampoo treatment was designed to rebuild the hair’s natural layer that protects again build-ups, chemical damage, and color oxidation. It allows your hair to stay vibrant and shiny. What you want to do is to apply this treatment to dry or wet hair in the areas you want the color to stay vibrant (in my case from root to tip). Leave in for about 15 minutes before washing it off and applying your favorite shampoo and conditioner.
Key ingredients: Safflower seed extract, Black spruce extract, and Sweet almond oil.
If you know me, you know I am a big fan of dry shampoos. It’s honestly my biggest hair secret to 24/7 voluminous hair. This dry shampoo is a matte and oil-free product that not only leaves my hair volumized, but without the patchy white marks, you might find from drugstore dry shampoo. The power is extremely fine and soft to work into my scalp. I love that it’s so compact I can just throw it in my purse and have it ready for whenever I need it.
Key ingredients: Wildberry complex, Green tea extract, Kakadu plum extract
Overall, I am very impressed with this collection. I love that they are made locally in Canada and are cruelty-free, silicone-free, and paraben-free. Their products all smell amazing and I love how light-weight they feel on my hair. Salon-quality products you can pamper yourself with at home are a win-win to me. Let me know if you end up trying out Voir’s hair care, I’d love to see what you have to say about them too!
