This is a really nice shampoo, it lathers really well, and makes my hair feel super clean without drying it out. My hair looks great on the second day, and fairly good on the third day!

Driven by an advanced Moringa Seed micro-protein, our light-as-meringue yet rich-as-custard emollient surges in moisture and helps fend off dirt and pollutants.

This is a lightweight conditioner, but still very hydrating and creamy feeling.


Since I’ve been using both the shampoo and conditioner, my hair has been less frizz prone, and so much more manageable and smoother in texture. My hair feels so soft!

GummiBand Hair Cords Review

*PR sample*

Hello, hello!


You might have seen me doing a little unboxing on my Instagram Stories of a package from GummiBand. They did a call for bloggers and when I found out that they were a Canadian company, I sent them a an email to let them know that I was interested in trying GummiBands out.


I received a package with two of each of the following colours – clear, black, brunette, light pink, dark pink, teal and purple, as well as a lovely letter from the owner Kirsten. If you look at all the photos, there is one GummiBand missing because it was in my hair while taking photos! They are currently available in 8 different colours – the only one that I did not receive was the blonde.


My hair is fairly long (the longest point is just past my bra strap), thick and wavy. I’ve mostly stopped using conventional hair elastics, and was using those flat, stretchy, ribbon type hair bands – but found that they stretched out and got dirty looking after several uses.


After reading up on GummiBands, I was hopeful that they would work for me. (info in Italics taken from the GummiBands website).

GummiBand Hair Cords are:

Hypoallergenic (They do not absorb water or sweat so they do not breed bacteria)

Suitable for all types of hair (Long and thick hair? Use 2 GummiBands for extra hold!)

Gentle on hair, reducing breakage and styling damage.

Reusable for years. When the cord stretched out, warm it up with hot air from a hair dryer or hot water to return it to its original shape!

GummiBand hair cords come with a 1 year full replacement warranty

Even though it says to use 2 GummiBands for extra hold, I find that I can get away with just using one for either a ponytail or a bun – even with my thick, wavy hair!

They really do shrink back into shape when heated! I purposely stretched one out and then heated it with my hair dryer and it returned to its original shape.

I’ve been wearing mine daily since receiving my package. My unruly, messy hair is thankful! ❤


They come in a package of four, and sell for $7.99 CAD, with free shipping in Canada. As well, GummiBands has kindly given me a coupon code to receive 2 bonus GummiBands with the purchase of every four-cord pack. The code is BONUS16 (just add the code into the notes section during checkout.

A little bit about GummiBands:

-Amazingly Awesome People
-Proudly Canadian, eh
-From the land of LuluLemon and all-you-can-eat sushi… Vancouver
-100% Female owned and operated


They are very community oriented and give back!

The team at GummiBand supports women in business around the world through micro-loans on Kiva. Kiva allows us to select female loan applicants from developing countries and help fund their entrepreneurial or educational dreams. 

ALSO, they support more than 50+ local fundraisers, AND mentor female high school students.  AND they work directly with their factory to ensure fair, safe and profitable working conditions, AND directly employ 15 women in Canada, the Philippines and India.

I might be a little bit smitten with this Canadian company!

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!
