Just because the weather is lackluster and dull doesn'??t mean you hair needs to be. With all the sleek styles on the fall runways, look straight ahead to polished ponies and long polished locks. I gathered up a few of my favorite styling products to get your started.
Hair oil. Sounds counterproductive doesn'??t it. And since most leave your hair disgusting if you put even a smidge more than you need on your tresses, I was happy to see that a miscalculation on my application of Davine'??s new Essential hair care OI/OIL didn'??t mean gross. It meant nice and calm for my frizzies. It has a breathable silicon and roucou oil to prevent aging and protect. That might be why they call it an '??absolute beautifying potion.'? Agreed.
I did a Keratin treatment once. This was before everyone got freaked out about its safety. To give you a DIY mane tamer, the king of frizz control, John Frieda, just launched his Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight treatment. This weightless spray with heat protection blocks out frizz as you straighten. Proprietary blend of polymers with keratin protein wraps each strand, sealing in straight styles for up to 3 days (or until you wash it again, which I sincerely hope is before three days). You just spray throughout damp or wet, not dry hair, then blow-dry hair straight. Finish up by flat ironing.
Boasting a golden color of the sun, Ecru New York'??s Silk Nectar Serum is a ray of light on your dull hair. A remarkably light anti-frizz serum that treats hair and scalp while providing optimum condition for styling. Smoothes and restore hair's cuticle while providing protection.
ColorProof PlushLocks Leave-In Smooth is a lux treatment that is for chemically straightened and color-treated hair, so it's gentle on your strands while tough on the frizz. It protects your color while providing superior long-term conditioning with its proprietary blend of exclusive oils including Abyssininan Oil from Africa.
As its name states, RUSK str8 Anti Frizz and Anti-Curl Lotion keeps things straight. Quite literally. This light, greaseless styling lotion is for you gals with frizzy, curly, or unruly hair who want smooth, straight, obedient hair.'?¨ It temporarily removes curl and eliminates frizz with its Thermplex, a unique combination of ingredients that activates with the heat of a blow-dryer to alter internal curl memory and block the effects of humidity for up to 24 hours.
Perfect for thick, coarse and curly hair who wants to partake in this season's sleek styles, BangStyle Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner are the perfect pair to make your hair lay down on command. The lightweight, humidity-resistant formulas have silicone to add shine while creating natural movement and bounce without weighing your hair down.
I [heart] dry oils because greasy is one of my least favorite things to be.got2b's Oil-licious Dry Oil Hair Taming Mist is a great option to calm your hair down before a sleek pony or blowout. It de-frizzes and tames fly-aways. Even fine hair isn't weighed down, and it smells divine.
There you have it. A few of my faves. Now straighten up and fly right, ladies. This fall is all about the sleeker, the better.
