kai obsession?
i have been using kai for a very long time. back in the days when i shopped at kitson. now that was wayyyyyy long ago. i love the body lotion, body butter, body glow, i use one of the three daily. i am huge on scents and kai is the only scent that meshes with all of my perfumes. it has a beautiful, calm humming scent, that i need to smell every day. along the way, i have become obsessed with kai shampoo and kai conditioner. i have dry hair and sometimes a dry scalp and the shampoo is so good to my scalp. love it and need it :))

i know that i am "guest blogging" for kai but i really need to share how perfect this product line is. quality products are the obvious, every single item has been perfected. the colors, the packaging, the way the products physically look and feel when the item is your hand. thorough from inside out. i know kai is made from a place of passion that involves pride and love.

xo,
catalina
