Let's start today's review with the Collagen Muscle Shampoo* by Elizavecca, suitable for every hair type, especially for dry and damaged hair. This nourishing shampoo with collagen, ceramide, and vegetable protein extract strengthens hair follicles, promotes a healthy scalp, and provides ample nourishment for robust hair growth. At the same time one of the main ingredients called anethole aids in revitalizing and managing hair, helping with detangling.

  • Packaging and Formula

The shampoo comes in a big (500 ml/19 oz) bottle with a convenient pump. You'll receive just the right amount of shampoo for one hair wash. However, if you have long hair or need to wash away beauty oil, you may need more than one pump. The most important feature of the bottle is its design! Elizavecca is known for the original and cute doodles and drawings, which always decorate their packaging!

The key ingredients of the product are Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract which has an anti-oxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory effect; Salix Alba or willow bark extract that soothes and calms the scalp; glycerin doesn't need an introduction.

Shampoo has a runny and transparent texture with a bright, flowery scent. It doesn't create too much foam but thoroughly cleanses hair strands and the scalp. My hair is a bit dry and damaged on the ends, but even after the two washes (my scalp felt very oily that day), the hair felt smooth and hydrated.

And now let's talk about the newly-arrived addition to the Elizavecca family, which became a legend in a very short term the – Protein Hair Treatment CER-100*. This hair care product became Amazon's best-seller in the hair treatment and mask section in no time as a more affordable alternative to expensive treatments.

  • What does Elizavecca CER-100 do?

This hair product was developed as an easy-in-use and convenient at-home treatment for damaged and over-processed hair of all textures. It can even be used on bleached and dyed hair. As with any other protein treatment, it plays a vital role in enhancing the health and appearance of hair. When applied, CER-100 collagen coating treatment infuses hair strands with essential proteins (hydrolyzed keratin, wheat, soy, and corn proteins) that help repair the damage, strengthen the hair shaft, and restore its natural elasticity. 

The proteins in these treatments work by filling in gaps and weak spots in the hair structure and coating the hair shaft in a ''protective barrier'' that minimizes further damage. This process helps to replenish lost nutrients and moisture, leading to improved manageability, reduced breakage, and increased overall hair health and appearance. The results are immediate! Right after the very first at-home procedure, you'll get a visibly healthier, shinier, and more manageable hair look.

  • Packaging and Formula

CER-100 by Elizavecca comes in a white, squeezable tube with an adorable design. Such a simple format allows for a quick and ''painless'' usage of the product in the shower or bath: just squeeze out the necessary amount of protein treatment in your hand, apply it to your hair (and apply a bit more, if needed), close the tube and wait for the magic product to work.

But, of course, the best thing about this at-home protein treatment is its incredible formula. Let's take a closer look at some of the main ingredients and understand what they do for the hair. The very first major component is Amodimethicone – a type of silicone-based polymer that conditions the hair and helps with the frizz. Another major ingredient in the formula is Panthenol, which is used in hair care products to strengthen the hair, soothe the scalp, and help with split ends. 


Next goes the Cornus Officinalis Fruit Extract aka dogwood berries extract (a fruit native to Japan and China). This extract is widely used in cosmetics as it provides skin and hair with moisture, helps with hair styling, and adds shine. Lastly, there are hydrolyzed keratin, silk, and collagen topped with wheat, soy, and corn proteins. These ingredients do all the ''rebuilding'' in the hair strands, coat them in a protective film, add volume, and moisturize the hair.

The product itself has a pleasant, creamy texture with a light yellowish-pearlescent hue to it. It is easy to apply and spreads evenly on the hair length. The scent is soft and nice. It reminds me of spring flowers with a slight cream note.

How to Use Elizavecca CER-100 Collagen Coating Protein Treatment?

Unlike regular deep conditioning and other popular hair treatments, protein treatment requires a certain
way of application. Here is how to apply Elizavecca CER-100 to your hair to achieve the best results.

  • Cleanse your hair: Before you apply any protein treatment, you must start with squeaky clean hair. Use a gentle shampoo to remove any buildup and debris from your hair. I used Collagen Coating Hair Muscle Shampoo by Elizavecca and thoroughly rinsed it with water a few times;

  • Apply the protein treatment: Remove the excess water from your hair with a gentle towel or an old, soft t-shirt. Your hair should be damp, not wet before the application. Apply protein treatment by Elizavecca from the roots to the ends, evenly spreading it with your fingers. 

  • Leave the treatment: After the application, leave the treatment on your hair for 5-20 minutes. You can clip it up with a hair clip, so it doesn't fall onto your face and shoulders.

  • Rinse thoroughly: After the treatment has been on your hair for the recommended amount of time, rinse it out thoroughly with warm water. Make sure you remove all of the product from your hair. I suggest you rinse it a few times, as it really ''grabs'' onto the hair strands, making your hair feel dry and rough.

  • Use deep-conditioning mask: After using Elizavecca's collagen-coating protein treatment, it's important to follow up with a deep-conditioner or nourishing hair mask to help restore moisture to your hair. Additionally, look for a conditioner that's designed to work well with protein treatments.

How Often Can You Use Protein Hair Treatment?

When it comes to the frequency of using protein hair treatments, it's essential to strike a balance. While protein treatments can be beneficial for strengthening and repairing damaged hair, using them too frequently can lead to excessive protein buildup, making the hair stiff and brittle.

The recommended frequency for protein hair treatments varies depending on individual hair needs, hair type, and the specific product. As a general guideline, it is often suggested to use protein treatments every 4-6 weeks or monthly. However, it's crucial to consider the condition of your hair and adjust the frequency accordingly.

Elizavecca CER-100 Hair Muscle Essence Oil

Finally, let's review the CER-100 Hair Muscle Essence Oil– a leave-in hair treatment for sleek and shiny hair. If you are a hair care fan, you should be familiar with this hair care product. CER-100 Essence Oil by Elizavecca is packed with nourishing natural oils and detangling ingredients like Cyclopentasiloxan and Dimethicone that prevent hair frizziness and lock in the moisture in the hair.

  • Packaging and Formula

Leave-in treatment comes in a clear, plastic bottle with a pump that measures a tiny amount of product for a single use. It has a vivid, sweet scent, which reminds me of vanilla. The glossy texture is silky and slimy to the touch, it glides between the fingers and evenly coats every strand of the hair.

The product's conditioning formula of the product is silicone-based, which is a very popular ingredient for leave-in detangling hair products for detangling. It includes some of the yummiest oils for extra hair nourishment like Argania spinosa kernel oil or simply Argan Oil, which moisturizes the hair and scalp, protecting it from moisture loss and damage; Macadamia seed oil, containing natural anti-oxidants and prevents water loss; and Sweet almond oil, which prevents hair loss and promotes new hair growth (thanks to Vitamin D).

  • How to Use Elizavecaa CER-100 Hair Muscle Essence Oil?

There are two popular ways of using it: on dry and damp hair. I like using both methods, depending on my mood! 
  • First, you can apply a few pumps of Essence Oil (remember that a little of the product goes a long way) to the palms of your hand and spread it on the dry hair. Comb through the hair strands to help spread the texture. 
  • The second method helps to lock in moisture in the hair strands. For this, you'll need to apply CER-100 Essence Oil onto slightly damp (right before the hair feels completely dry) hair. Comb the hair as usual, to evenly spread the product along the hair strands.
Both methods work well, but I feel that the second one keeps the hair hydrated for longer. Try both of them yourself to find out what works better for your hair.

Final Verdict

Finding just the right hair care products may be more challenging than finding what skincare works on your skin type. I've been trying to wrap up the labors of Sisyphus for as long, as I can remember myself being interested in hair care. Luckily, some products seem to be working better, than regular drugstore shampoos and conditioners. Additionally, they are just as affordable and easy to get. I'm happy to welcome Elizavecca Hair Care into the game, together with the latest addition to the CER-100 family – Collage Coating Curl Cream.

Shampoo is a delightful surprise with its sweet, tantalizing fragrance and gentle formula. It works wonders on my dry, damaged hair, leaving it feeling rejuvenated. However, I did encounter a minor issue with the protein treatment. Though it smelled and felt amazing, it tended to linger in my hair due to incomplete rinsing. So, be sure to thoroughly rinse your hair and follow up with proper moisturization. Overall, it looks like it is exactly what my thirsty hair craved – just some nourishing proteins and collagen.

And, finally, the love of my life leave-in Essence oil for naughty hair. I wholeheartedly recommend incorporating this product into your hair care routine, especially if you have long, dry hair prone to knots and tangles. It's a true game-changer that even Rapunzel herself would envy. Trust me, this magical hair care potion will transform your locks! 

I want to express my sincere gratitude to Elizavecca for giving me the incredible opportunity to try their game-changing hair care products. Not only have these products exceeded my expectations, but they have also revolutionized my view on hair care. The noticeable improvement in the strength and health of my hair is something I still need to work on, but from now on it is going to be an easy and pleasant challenge.

Lots of love,
