Fall Product Standouts – Hair

Fall-2011-Hair-Product-Picks My hair is all over the place right now; this in-between season always seems to wreak havoc on my strands. Does it need more moisture? Maybe not use the blow dryer so often? I’m not really sure but these below three seem to be helping me keep is steady Freddie until the cold comes on.

NEXXUS Color Assure Radiant Color Care Leave-in Conditioning Spray ($14.99/10.1oz @ – I’ve learned the hard way that not all leave-in conditioners are created equal. This one uses grapefruit extract, coconut oil, and honey extract to add extra moisture to strands to keep hair color longer.

PUREOLOGY ColorStylists Antibreakage Twist ($24/2.5oz @ – one of two new products just added to their ColourStylist line, this paste provide a mild hold and texture and totally safe for color-treated strands.

DAVINES OI/OIL ($39/4.56oz @ – I’m a huge fan of hair oils and this one seems like the next generation of them. It’s pretty light and its main oil comes from a beta-carotene and antioxidant-rich Roucou Oil.

A Smooth Move from Davines

Davines-Lovely-Smoothing-Conditioner I’ve had some pretty good luck with conditioners from the DAVINES line and I had the opportunity to try another one. Now I’m not sure if it’s the weather in LA or perhaps the time of year but my hair has been kind of unruly lately and a-typically on the dry side. Their new Lovely Smoothing Conditioner really did the trick in getting my strands back on the right track. It really felt like I used a deep conditioner even though this one only required about 2 minutes on the head.

It contains rice wax and an unusually high level of vitamin E as well as Borage Seed Oil, which helps with the hydration and a little goes a long way.

$25/8.4oz @

We Found A Hot Hair Mask In Davines

Davines-Nounou-Hair-Mask  TrophyEvery once in a while a hair mask comes along and kicks my strands in the butt and this one left me running my fingers through my hair over and over. So what’s the name of the one that did it? DAVINES Nounou/Pak Nourishing Repairing Mask ($34/8.45oz @ I’ve gotten about 5 full uses out of this container (I tend to overdue it when it comes to hair products!) and I can proudly say, this is one of the best hair masks I have ever used. Could it be the Olive Butte, Jojoba Oil or the combo of the Cherry Oil and Rhizobian Gum that really had our strands soft and manageable? Or was it some secret their not giving up? Either way, I don’t care. Just don’t discontinue this one! Let’s give this one a big hearty welcome to the Hall of Fame. Welcome Davines!

Davines Cares About Your Hair Color

I'm all about keeping my hair color fresh so I only use products, even down to the styling ones, that will enhance it, not kill it. New from DAVINES is their Alchemic Line that will help you do just that. But how do these differ from other hair products made for those who dye their hair? Each of the six colors is made for your specific tone -- Alchemic Shampoos ($23/8.45oz) and Alchemic Conditioners ($20/8.45oz) for Natural and Color Treated Hair.

  • Red (for red/mahogany hair)
  • Golden (for golden/honey blonde hair)
  • Copper (for coppery brown hair)
  • Silver (for white hair with predisposition to turning yellow when damaged)
  • Chocolate (for dark brown/black hair)
  • Tobacco (for mid/light brown hair)
Davines_2Their scientists distilled pure pigments and added them to other nourishing ingredients. The shampoos contains milk proteins, vitamins A and B, panthenol and UV filter to protect the color when out in the sun. And the conditioners? Vitamin E, milk proteins and both come in glass jars. Nice attention to detail, Davines! And this even comes in a travel kit with a jar with shampoo, another with conditioner and then two empty ones for the product of your choice. And it's at a nice price for $20. All @
