Good hair days with Ellips + {GIVEAWAY}

I love a Monday that starts with a giveaway!! Don’t you? So gals, you know I have a hate-hate relationship with my hair. My hair aside, I’m also always looking for products to nourish Addison’s very thick, frizzy, dehydrated hair. When I received a package from Ellips a few months ago, I was excited, but I figured…another hair product. It seems new, different, but probably going to be a novelty and I’ll forget about it after a few weeks. I swear I do this, with even the most high-end and fabulous hair products. I enjoy it, but I don’t feel like I HAVE TO use it. Boy was I wrong…. we’ve been enjoying the Ellips hair vitamin capsules so much! Addison is obsessed. I am obsessed. My mom is obsessed. I hand them out as samples to family members, though, as I start running low, I’m regretting my generosity! lol

What is the Ellips brand and products about?

My thoughts

The hair treatment capsules are so fun and the colours are so vibrant! How could you NOT want to use them? I love the innovation of the packaging and the thought behind making these look like huge capsules. These capsules do not weigh the hair down at all. Not one bit. There is no heaviness, no greasiness…it honestly doesn’t look like you’ve put oil on your hair. The hair just looks nourished from within. Addison’s hair has been THRIVING since we’re using these capsules. I don’t even have to tell her to get them, she automatically puts it on after she washes her hair. My mom loves the Ultra Treatment. Again, a serum that doesn’t weight the hair down.

I love the Hair Mask, mostly because it’s a 2 minute mask, so I can use it in the shower and be done with it. I never have time for a 10 or even 5 minutes mask. Also, we’re trying to save water, so there’s really no time for long showers. This mask is really nourishing, quick to use and affordable.

All products are available online at www.ellipshair.co.za as well as Takealot.com.

  • keschia ingram

    I have such fine hair and gets oily very quickly, so that means my hair looks great only 2 days after i have it done – being working mom of 2 – I can only manage one hair session a week – then we go to the mom-bun for the rest of the week lol I would possibly try the Yellow Smooth & Silky – hopefully doesn’t make my hair too oily and thus last more than 2 days!

    • Dhesh

      I have fine, frizzy hair but l would most love to try the leave in milkshake conditioner for my three year old daughter. She hates me brushing her hair. It’s a major issue every morning but she refuses to get a short cut as she doesn’t want to look like her brother.

  • Dionne

    Firstly can I say…
    Do not drink the capsules🤣🤣🤣🤣🤦‍♀️🤔.
    And Interesting that one of the capsules can be used to fight the first signs of aging in hair. Didnt know this was possible.

    My hair is dehydrated and also dry and brittle from some awful meds.
    So i would love to try the pink hair repair capsules and the orange hair vitality capsules too.
