There’s been a ton of haircare launches this Spring and I’ve been testing them out over the past few weeks. I’ve also discovered a couple of new to me finds that I’m so glad to have. Here’s a quick review of all these!
The Vitabrid C12 Scalp Shampoo ($32; barneys.com) is a fantastic shampoo to balance out your scalp. It has a lovely citrus fragrance and cleanses beautifully without stripping. My scalp tends to get oily from time to time and this has helped me keep it balanced and my hair looking very healthy. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a gentle balancing shampoo.
The Biosilk Silk Therapy With Organic Coconut Oil ($26- $44; biosilk.com) is a new addition to the Bioslilk haircare range. It has the same styling benefits of the original Silk Therapy with organic coconut oil. There’s a shampoo//conditioner/body wash and a leave-in treatment. The shampoo is a tad mild and doesn’t foam all that much and can weigh down if you have an oily scalp, but for drier hair types it would be a good one to try. The Leave-in is great as a serum and helps add a lot of shine and cut down drying time.
Olivia Garden makes some fantastic brushes and these EcoHair Brushes are no exception. Its a gorgeous collection, very well made and the bristles are soft. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a few good brushes to work with your styling needs. The collection includes a Combo Round Brush ($23.95; oliviagarden.com), Combo and Detangler ($20.50; oliviagarden.com).
Ogx makes great affordable haircare and the new styling range features everything from a dry shampoo to a thermal spray. The Smoothing + Shea Humidity Blocking Hairspray($8.99; ulta.com) is perfect to tame flyways and touch up the frizzes. Its a fine mist and does not make my hair feel crunchy or weigh it down. Protecting + Silk Blowout Quick Drying Thermal Spray ($8.99; ulta.com) is a very lightweight thermal spray that also helps speed up blow drying time. The Bodifying + Bamboo Fiber Full Body Boost Dry Shampoo ($8.99; ulta.com) is a super lightweight dry shampoo that absorbs oil and adds a lot of root lift. The Bamboo Fiber Full is one of my favorite lines from Ogx and this product is no exception.
Maui Moisture Color Protection + Minerals Range ($8.99; ulta.com) is great if you have colored hair or dry hair. The Shampoo and conditioner add a lot of shine, while the Heat Shield Mist keeps color from fading. I don’t color my hair very often and only have remnants of a previous hair color from ages ago, but this is a very gentle range to try for anyone wanting to protect your color or generally add some moisture and shine back.
The Vernon Francois Styling Cream ($25; sephora.com) is among my current favorite styling creams at the moment. Its lightweight, moisturizing and works on dry and damp hair. I love the softness it adds and how bouncy my hair feels without becoming too frizzy overtime.
The Marc Anthony Sleek & Straight Smoothing Cocktail ($8.99; ulta.com) is a dual styling product that comes with a Soothing Cream and Glossing Lotion in one. The packaging always gets more glossing lotion out than the cream, but it can be controlled. I think this is a great option for people with very thick, unruly hair. I liked it as a pre styling product, but for finer hair types, I’d recommend having a clarifying shampoo in hand. The Marc Anthony Bye Bye Frizz and Grow Long ($2.99; ulta.com) are two deep conditioning treatments that help fight frizz and strengthen. I absolutely loved the Bye Bye Frizz one since it was ultra hydrating and very smoothening without weighing my hair down. The Grow Long Super Fast Miracle Treatment is also a great deep conditioner, but I haven’t used it long enough to comment on actual hair growth with this one.
