The Real Me Collection by nuNAAT contains everything you need to get the beachy, wavy trend for yourself effortlessly — from shampoo, to conditioner, to a hair mask, to shine, to pomade.
I was first introduced to the collection a few years ago and have been a convert ever since. To enhance lush, luxurious waves, there’s simply nothing better.
The Real Me Collection was developed by Brazilian company nuNAAT using an Exclusive Join Complex Formula, which is a blend of five natural oils extracted from nuts, fruits, and green collagen. It includes natural argan, avocado, coconut, macadamia and pracaxi oils, making it a nourishing option for all hair textures.
Plus, the entire Real Me Collection is free of sulfates, mineral oils, parabens and sodium chloride. And, these products work beautifully on chemically treated hair like mine, enhancing curls without causing further damage.
LATHER UP & HYDRATE SHAMPOO The first step in the nuNAAT system is the Lather Up & Hydrate Shampoo. I absolutely love this product! It’s got a refreshing, slightly spicy scent and it lathers beautifully.
And, not only does it get hair squeaky clean, it’s formulated for moisture renewal and incredible shine. So, it moisturizes multi-textured hair without weighing it down and pulling out all of that beautiful wave. Hair is silky soft and much easier to simply finger style.
REAL MOISTURE CONDITIONER Using conditioner on wavy hair can be a challenge. Finding the perfect combination that adds moisture, but doesn’t weigh hair down is difficult. But, the Real Moisture Conditioner delivers! It’s created to restore moisture and softness to locks, but hair won’t go flat.
PICK ME UP SHEEN This is one of my favorite products ever. Since I’ve colored my hair for years, maintaining shine is on ongoing challenge, especially during the summer when my hair suffers extra punishment through added sun exposure, plus chlorine and salt damage from swimming.
The Pick Me Up Sheen softens and protects hair, but leaves sensational shine. It also works wonders to control frizz, which is often a byproduct of curly or wavy hair, plus summer’s unrelenting humidity.
Simply apply to damp hair (before blow drying, if you blow dry). You can also use it as a touch up during the day. And, on these hot, steamy days of summer, it’s a lifesaver.
BLAST OF SHINE HAIR MASK A hair mask is a great weekly “treat” for hair. More intense than a typical conditioner, this treatment not only defines naturally curly and wavy textures, it also helps deeply moisturize hair, banish frizz and control frustrating flyaways.
Simply apply to clean hair and let stand for five minutes and rinse thoroughly. Or, for a more intense treatment, leave on hair for up to 15 minutes. Gorgeous!
NATURAL CURL ACTIVATOR One of the big challenges when maintaining curly hair is what I call the “big hair syndrome.” Since my hair is colored (and damaged, if I am honest) it tends to want to inflate with the humidity. And, although I keep my hair all one length and long to combat it, after a full day outside in the weather, the result is often hair that’s a really bad throwback to a 1980’s rock video!
The Natural Curl Activator is the ultimate weapon to combat this type of frizz. Simply apply to wet hair and style. You’ll get show stopping curls without the annoying flyaways or the excessive volume.
PERFECT DO POMADE The Perfect Do Pomade is essential for shorter, curled-but-controlled looks. Apply a small quantity to control your style, or dab on edges to keep them perfectly in place.
Since my hair is long, I found that it’s particularly effective on split ends and reduces that “fuzzy look” until I can make it into the salon for a haircut!
In addition to the Real Me Collection, nuNAAT offers many other must-have hair care products like Karité Special, NAAT Minerals Argan Oil, and NAAT Silicon.
