Is the area around your bathroom mirror beginning to resemble a fully stocked cosmetics counter? Are you having trouble finding your toothbrush among the bottles of leave-in conditioners and overnight hair masques? The truth is, most women have more hair products than they know what to do with. Sure, it’s great to have lots of fun options, but we think your hair products should be like your best friends – a few really great ones are all you need. To help you in your search for your hair’s new best buddy, here are a few tried and true recommendations from our stylists.
L’ANZA KERATIN HEALING OIL
We can’t say enough good things about this lightweight, silky oil! The Keratin Protein rebuilds the inner layers of each strand to give your hair more bounce and body. The Phyto IV Complex (a blend of Abyssinian Flower Oil, Coffee Seed Oil, Acai Fruit Oil, and Babassu Kernel Oil – no silicone!) rehydrates without weighing hair down or leaving a greasy residue.
To use, massage a dime-sized amount into damp hair after washing and conditioning. Leave in for five minutes. Rinse. Then, apply a small amount to towel-dried hair before blow-drying. L’ANZA Keratin Healing Oil provides thermal protection and speeds up your blow dry time. Our stylists say you can also use this on dry hair for extra moisture and shine.
Made for all hair types, this hard-working oil moisturizes, strengthens, heat-protects, and nourishes your hair. Definitely a friend for life!
L’ANZA MAGIC BULLET
This is the friend who can do it all. This styling product is truly the ultimate in versatility. It’s a leave-in conditioning spray, but it also works as a detangler and a color-protectant. Magic Bullet offers thermal protection up to 482 degrees and also shields your hair from the sun’s damaging, color fading rays.
To use, just mist it over your damp or dry hair, then style as usual.
Judging by the results we’ve seen, this product is aptly named!
SURFACE MOUSSE: AWAKENING THICKENING MOUSSE AND CURL WHIP MOUSSE
These styling mousses from Surface are the friends who lift you up when you’re feeling down.
Curl Whip Mousse from the Surface Curls line will smooth frizz without drying out your hair (it hydrates with Cocoa Butter and Amaranth). This is a mousse with a soft, light feel that gives your curls a gentle lift. Made for the naturally curly girl.
Awaken Thickening Mousse from the Surface Awaken line will noticeably volumize your hair. Suitable for both curly and straight hair, this product uses organic Amaranth protein to strengthen as it styles. Our stylists say that this lightweight, great-smelling mousse is some of the best they have ever used!
To use Curl Whip Mousse or Thickening Mousse, apply to clean, damp hair at the roots, and then pull through the rest of your hair and style as usual.
