This post was sponsored by Sexy Hair through their partnership with ShopStyle Collective. While I was compensated to write a post about their Sexy Hair products, all opinions are my own.
The only thing I want more than Sexy Hair is Long Sexy Hair! Especially since my epic chop two years ago, it’s taken me a long time to enter back into the long hair zone. And now with the all the color in my hair, growing it and keeping it healthy has been a daily battle.
Sexy Hair, who’s Big Sexy Hair collection I’m already obsessed with – their Spray & Play Volumizing Hairspray has a permanent residence in my bathroom, just launched a new collection Long Sexy Hair. They also added a new Silk Finish to their Big Sexy Hair collection.
The new Long Sexy Hair collection is ideal for long hair and extensions and consists of the Color Safe Luxurious Shampoo, Color Safe Luxurious Conditioner, Luxe Detangler, Luxe Blow Out Spray and Luxe Dry Shampoo. The whole range features Moringa Oil and Biotin to nourish hair and add shine. Most of you are familiar with biotin – I even take supplements of it as a hair growth supplement.

It has a plethora of benefits for not just hair but for skin and your overall health as well. For hair though it’s great for moisturizing the scalp and also strengthening hair by delivering important minerals and vitamins to the follicles.

And not that she doesn’t embody the essence of Sexy Hair, but you know, she didn’t actually use the product considering it was decades after her passing that the brand even came into existence. And while it’s definitely weird she’s the new spokesperson, I’m willing to be imaginative enough that if she was actually still with us (and could speak for herself) this would be the brand on her vanity. After all, in the words of Marilyn herself,
