We all have unique hair types and style needs, so finding the perfect products can take some trial and error. What may work for someone else, may not be quite what you’re looking for. The best path to guess-free product shopping is to consult your stylist. They are experts when it comes to what products work best for different hair types and styles. For now, you can take a look at this list of some of our favorite featured products and pick up the right fit for you!
Girl on the Go:
Dry shampoo by Batiste or Klorane is an essential for touching up stressed strands. Add extended life to a blowout and get great second-day hair, or throw it in your gym back for a quick post-workout fix. A few spritzes of dry shampoo will absorb excess oil and add texture to your hair, making it easy to get out the door with minimal styling.
Texturizing spray like Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray is also great for a quick and easy hair style. A few sprays onto damp hair will create loose, beachy waves, and add a little grit for improved styling.
Color Treated Tricks:
We love Pureology’s line of shampoos and conditioners for color treated hair. This all natural, sulfate-free formula keeps color locked in, vibrant, and shiny for longer periods than drugstore brands. It has a great fragrance and the natural ingredients are a nourishing treat for processed hair. We recommend waiting at least 24-36 hours before shampooing freshly colored hair. When using a higher end shampoo, you will notice decreased oil production, and you won’t need to wash your hair as frequently. Hello lasting color!
Restore your balance:
If you’ve battled with dry and brittle strands and unbalanced oil production, the Moroccan Oil product line could be your saving grace. Everything from heated styling, color processing, to genetics can contribute to brittle and unbalanced hair. If you have dry hair that still manages to get greasy after a day or two, treat your hair to a Moroccan Oil moisture repair shampoo and conditioning regimen. If you really want to see some great results, we recommend incorporating a daily dose of straight Moroccan Oil to damp, shampooed hair before styling. Wait, add oil to my already grease-prone hair? Yes that’s right! The magic of Moroccan Oil is that it does wonders to help improve the way your hair retains and absorbs moisture. After a few weeks of using this regimen, and a good trim or two, you will certainly see improvements!
Repair the damage:
Keratin is the protein that your hair naturally produces that keeps it strong and resistant to breakage. Depletion of this protein is common among people who color their own hair or use heated styling products, but it happens to just about everyone over time! You can visit your salon for a pricey keratin treatment (but the results are oh-so worth it!), or you can try the at home version with Coppola Keratin products. We highly recommend their total repair mask or heated styling sprays.
