Repairing Winter Worn Hair

There are several new products that I have found, thank goodness, that stand out among the hoardes of hair products out there that really rejuve, energize, and put the bounce back in like many claim but few do. With my hair, and probably all hair actually, less product is more, and having something that helps but isn’t sticky, crepe-y, heavy, greasy, or filmy is everything when it comes to presentable hair that you can still run your fingers through – to throwback on some eighties hair ads…

DV8T7609A hair dryer that doesn’t take the pouf out – Harry Josh Pro Tools 2000 Hair Dryer. I haven’t read all the hype or seen it TV, I just googled best hair dryer for volume and up it came in SEO. I sprung for it, and I am really glad I did, because it is very different from other dryers and I love the effect. My hair feels much more light and airy after using it, and it gets the job done fast. Plus, I am most in love with the design, feel in the hand (shorter nozzle = better control) and the actual control panel is really pleasing to me for some reason. Sometimes the control buttons can be flimsy and harder to find – but these are solid and right where your finger is which just makes the whole dreaded deed of blow drying easier and more fun!

Something new (actually) in the dry shampoo arena from Oribe. Oribe Soft Dry Conditioner is not a dry shampoo as far as I can tell, although it solves the same problem that dry shampoo does: one to two day out of washing, greasy, lifeless strands. But it doesn’t leave hair stiff or cake AT ALL. It reconditions the hair completely, and it softens and volumizes at the same time. Seriously innovative, and a prettier, more recently blow dried effect is what I get when I use it. And it has the landmark Oribe scent, which is a new classic. It will not buy you as many days post wash as a seriously oil absorbing dry shampoo, but you won’t have to downsides of strong dry shampoo either – the effect is perfection and it gives at least a one day extension from rewashing.

DV8T7605Garrett Markenson REVERIE Milk Leave-in Conditioning Treatment. A true asset for me, now that I have discovered it. First and (sorry) but foremost, it smells sooooo good. Like a dreamy spa that you never want to leave. Here’s the list of essential oils involved in this experience: Sandalwood, Rose, Lavander, Bay Laurel, Patchouli, Vetiver, Bourbon Vanilla, Sage, Spearmint. Jasmine, Fennel, Black Pepper, Clove, Ginger, Bergamot, Rosemary, Sunflower. Yeah, you gotta smell it to believe it. Furthermore, it contains Pracaxi seed oil, amino acids, and a host of other good for hair, mostly organic, natural ingredients. It smoothes, rehydrates, and generally just sorts out your hair and makes it look one hundred times better. It is never oily, and since me and oily hair products just don’t get along, you won’t see me reporting on anything that causes grease slick ever. But this product is the best overall hair styling cream (and it’s alight cream, almost cream-gel or lotion in texture) I have ever tried. Not to mention is it beautifully packaged and lovely to smell…
