Shtrands Subscription Box Review + Coupon – August 2016
SHTRANDS is a subscription box that sends you customized hair care regimens from a team of hairstylists and cosmetic chemists every two months. The hair care regimen includes 4 full sized cleansing, conditioning and styling products. Products included in the box should last you two months. At any point in the subscription you can choose to receive a completely new regimen or a mix of new products and ones you have already received and loved.
FYI – Before SHTRANDS sent me the first box to review I filled out a hair questionnaire. Because my items are based off of my personal preferences, my Shtrands delivery will probably be different than others. After receiving you receive your first box they let you provide feedback and you can get the same products or different ones.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
Each box comes with a really nice, durable canvas bag. It has loop handle on the left side and a zipper top. It’s nice and big and would be perfect for traveling and organizing. I’m so excited to have a bunch of these.

Each box includes an info card. The handwriting is a nice touch that makes it feel personal, but part of me wishes it were typed just for ease of reading. I could make it out, though, so it was fine.
Teadora Miracle Shampoo & Conditioner Set, Rainforest After Dark – 12 oz each, value: $52
I can happily say that this set is my favorite shampoo & conditioner I’ve received in a subscription box ever. These are fantastic and work seriously well. I really noticed a difference after one wash and I look forward to how my hair will be after each shower. This set really softens my hair significantly but makes it feel stronger, and it looks shinier too. I felt like I had TV commercial hair.
The fragrance is light and different than most shampoos and conditioners I’ve used. Along with hydrating, softening, and making your hair shinier, these also prolong the life of hair color, help with frizz control, help protect against UV Damage, and have anti-inflammatory ingredients to support scalp health.
TONI&GUY Casual Sea Salt Texturizing Spray – 6.8 oz, value: $14.95
I tried this sea salt spray a couple years ago thanks to Birchbox, and I like it! I have been playing with sea salt/texturizing sprays lately, trying to figure out how to get them to work for me. This one smells great and hasn’t left my hair crunchy.
Abba Smoothing Blow Dry Lotion – 5.1 oz, value: $18
This smoothing blow dry lotion is very thin and a little goes a long way. It has key botanicals of barley proteins, mango extract, and ProQuinoa Complex and helps tame frizz and enhance shine for all hair types. I’ve loved using this! It detangles pretty easily too, but I still like using a heat-protecting detangler too. I’ve notice a serious increase in the hydration and shine of my hair with this.
Verdict: This was a great first impression for me from SHTRANDS! I’ve never seen such a dramatic difference in my hair from a new hair regimen, so it’s easy to say that I’m definitely happy with this box. I’m also happy with the value – everything adds up to $91.95. Plus, I’m really happy with the practical and roomy canvas pouch they come in.
