Number 4 Profile

This kit was created exclusively for Birchbox by Number 4, a hair care company that produces luxury hair care for a variety of hair types and needs. I'm actually no stranger to Number 4 hair care, but it has been years since I last used any of their products, so getting the opportunity to try this system was exciting! Products are 100% Vegan, Gluten Free, Sulfate/Sodium Chloride Free, and Paraben Free.

Kit Price

This retails for $58 for the entire kit.

Where to Buy

This is available exclusively on Birchbox's site HERE


Number 4 Beat the Heat Kit Review



Products

This kit includes the following:
  • Sulfate-free, Sodium Chloride-free hydrating shampoo
  • Hydrating conditioner
  • Super Comb Prep & Protect Leave-in Conditioner
  • Fluoro5 Elixir Restore & Repair oil

Shampoo

This shampoo is one I've used before and I've always found it to be incredibly luxe! It's amazing to me that it's sulfate-free because it has such a lovely lather. This shampoo does not irritate my scalp and cleanses my hair well (I tend to react to shampoos with cheaper ingredients).

Conditioner

I've used this conditioner before as well and it is very thick and hydrating. I am a huge fan and it always works well on my hair.

Super Comb Prep & Protect Leave-in Conditioner

This is a lovely leave-in conditioner and it provided noticeable slip, which resulted in tangle-free hair.

Fluoro5 Elixir Restore & Repair Oil

This is a very light-weight hair oil that contains fluorosilicones. Unlike some silicone-based hair oils I've used in the past, this was incredibly light-weight, yet left my hair straighter and shinier. I used one pump in my hair, which is incredibly thick, and that seemed to do the trick!

Ingredients Note

100% Vegan, Gluten Free, Sulfate/Sodium Chloride Free, Paraben Free

Final Thoughts

I used these products as instructed and did not use heat to style or dry my hair after. Because of my hair type (incredibly textured, incredibly thick and not totally straight) I try to avoid using hot tools daily, otherwise it completely dries out my hair. Using these products alone, my hair was straighter and shinier after air-drying! Especially in the fall when it's already dry, products like this are perfect for me. I love that these products avoid using many of the ingredients I try to avoid in hair products. I do want to note that while I believe the hair oil and leave-in conditioner are both full-size products, the shampoo and conditioner bottles are noticeably smaller (as you can see above). Given that the leave-in conditioner retails for $32 and the hair oil retails for $26, it's as if you receive the bottles of shampoo and conditioner for free when purchasing this kit. 

All in all, I think this is a fabulous hair care system worth giving a try this fall to avoid drying out your hair as the weather grows cooler and dryer (it's already dry and cold up here!). 

How does your hair care change when fall comes rolling around? Have you tried a heat-free routine such as this?

  2. I'm glad this seemed to work nicely with your hair. I never blow dry my hair, even when it's long! If my hair is ever long again, this would be a great option!

  3. This looks amazing! I just cut all my hair off and stopped blow-drying it. I'm going for natural texture now.
