Shu Uemura and Spornette Tame Strands

Shu-Uemura-and-Spornette
I’m pretty religious about using a hair mask each week and lately I’ve been using the new SHU UEMURA Essence Absolue Nourishing Taming Overnight Serum $69/3.3oz @ shuuemuraartofhair.com). I’ve been a fan of their hair care products for some time and this one doesn’t disappoint. It’s a light cream you apply right before bed so it can do its work while you sleep. I was worried that it would get all over my pillow but it seemed to absorb pretty quickly and left no residue behind. And this is a no-rinse serum so don’t worry about having sticky, crusty hair the next morning, as it all gets absorbed.

This one really added moisture and frizz resistance (they claim 24 hours). It can be applied on wet or dry hair and use a comb to distribute it evenly down the hair shaft.

Styling has become a breeze with SPORNETTE’s latest release, the Square Heat Styler ($25 @ ulta.com). It comes in 4 different sizes, Small, Medium, Large and Extra-Large, so choose depending on the length of your hair. The square shape is ideal for getting high volume styles, super straight strands and even that flip at the bottom of the hair. The barrel is ceramic and tourmaline, which I have come to expect these days with a styling brush! The combo of these traits help the center heat up quickly and retain the heat, as well as leave hair super shiny afterwards.

Vinegar Hair Rinses from Pureology and Redken

Redken-Color-Extend-Vinegar-Rinse-Pureology-Vinegar-Hair-Rinse
I use vinegar to clear a lot of things around my house but I never really thought of it for beauty, until now. These two here contain apple cider vinegar to soften color-treated strands as well as give strands a boost in freshness and balances the hair’s pH.  Since I’m hesitant to use any kind of clarifying shampoo on my colored-hair, these are completely safe to use on it as they also remove build-up and won’t strip it.

Just squeeze out excess water after shampooing, squirt some on, rinse, and then apply conditioner as usual.

REDKEN Color Extend Vinegar Rinse ($24/8oz @ ulta.com)

PUREOLOGY Vinegar Hair Rinse ($29/8.5oz @ ulta.com)
