What I’m Loving Right Now, the Hair Edition

1. OLIVIA GARDEN FingerBrush Vented Hair Brush ($13.96/small, $14.76/medium, $15.56/large @ – I’ve never really turned to a hair brush to give me a great scalp massage but this one really does! The curved shape helps it hug the scalp and it has ionic bristles to help hair dry fast when used with a blow dryer.

2. OSCAR BLANDI Polish Blow-Out Crème ($25/4.2oz @ – Never does a blow-dry session go by where I don’t use a defrizz product. And this one from OB is doing it for me right now. The Jasmine Calming Complex it help repel humidity keep frizz and flyaways far away.

3. SHU UEMURA Detail Master Directional Fixing Spray ($38/6.3oz @ – I’ve been practicing my 40’s vintage hair waves lately and this spray really helps hold it the style in place without being crunchy.

4. KERASTASE Laque Dentelle Micro Mist Fixing Hairspray ($20.50/2oz, $36/8oz @ – a product that can be used with heat tools seems to be a rare find these days but I’m really loving this one as it helps my hair curls last longer than without and no product crunch when using it.  

5. ECRU NEW YORK Acacia Protein Hair Masque ($25/8oz – with all that we put our hair through these days, a quality hair mask is simply essential. This one contains Acacia Collagen, sunflower seed oil, Shea Butter and Marine Extracts to repair strands.

6. DEVA CURL My Deva Towel ($12 @ – are you still using a regular ol’ towel on your hair when you get out of the shower? Terry cloth towels promote frizz and are poor at drying the hair and this can be used on any type of hair.

Spring Hair Must Haves

Spring-Hair-Must-Haves-Natural-Essentials-ECRU-VerbNATURAL ESSENTIALS Healing Dry Oil ($9.99/1.5oz @ Walgreens and Bed Bath & Beyond stores nationwide) – this is a new line that gives you some of the salon quality at a great price. This one still contains silicones, which are not bad) but also Monoi, Dragonfruit and Camellia to help smooth out and keep frizzies far away. And this one can be used on color-treated hair.

ECRU Acacia Protein Oil ($30/1.7oz @ – this one contains acacia collagen found in the acacia tree in Africa. If you have dry and damaged hair, this one will help you get your strands back to into shape. This one also contains argon oil and protects against heat tools. Big recommendation.

VERB Finishing Polish ($12/2.5oz @ – I’m a big fan of smoothing creams. They are great for taming flyaways and just adding a final touch to your hairdo (yes, I said hairdo!). This line comes to us from Austin, TX (yeehaw!) and just like the name, they mean action! This one contains green tea, bamboo extracts, and argan oil to tame and keep strands in place.
