New Hair Care Tries & Current Loves

August 29, 2022

Hair Care Loves from Sephora

Sharing a roundup of some new hair care tries from Sephora today along with an update on other products I tried earlier this year!

Dae Monsoon Moisture Milk Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner

There are a few new shampoo and conditioner formulas out now. As a fan of the Dae Haircare line I immediately purchased the new Monsoon Moisture Milk Hydrating Shampoo ($26) and Monsoon Moisture Hydrating Conditioner ($26). Both are really nice for adding moisture back into the hair. The Shampoo lathers nicely and has a soft almost meadowfoam like scent to it. The Hydrating Conditioner is like a thick cream, but still has enough fluidity to pump out easily.

I really like both, but if you have normal/oily hair I’d recommend sticking with their Signature Shampoo and Conditioner (both also great and versatile, and they smell like bubblegum, in a good way!)

Olaplex No 4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo

I love Olaplex and they recently launched their No 4C Bond Maintenance Clarifying Shampoo ($30) and I really like it. It’s a great clarifying formula to remove product buildup, sweat and dirt that accumulates. You do need to follow up with a conditioner or mask, I use their No 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner when I use this.

Briogeo Farewell Frizz Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Cream

For hair care styling and anti-frizz treatments I have a few staples I wanted to give some love to. I’ve tried so many blow dry heat protectants and the Briogeo Farewell Frizz Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Cream ($26) is one I keep going back to. It is a lightweight cream with the perfect texture for my hair. Doesn’t weigh it down, doesn’t end up being too thick, leaves hair smooth and soft!

dpHUE Color Fresh Leave-In Conditioner Mist

The dpHUE Color Fresh Leave-In Conditioner Mist ($28) continues to be a favorite leave in conditioner spray I use on damp hair.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Advanced Clean Dry Shampoo

For dry shampoo I really love the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Advanced Clean Dry Shampoo ($30). It has their fast-absorbing powders to soak up sweat. I still love the original version but have the advance formula in rotation right now. I brought the mini with me to Key West last month.

Leave in Hair Masks ColorWow, K18, Living Proof

For the weekly mask/treatment there are three I’ve been testing and really like. You don’t need all three. Pick one based on your hair type and needs. I think these are a nice alternative to the rinse out conditioner or rinse out mask because these you can leave in the hair.

The ColorWOW Dream Coat Supernatural Anti-Frizz Treatment ($28) is my favorite because of the formula and spritz style applicator. You can spray and coat your hair evenly and it lasts several shampoos. It acts like a keratin treatment to smooth out the hair.

Another great option is the K18 Biomimetic Hairscience Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask ($75). This is a leave-in treatment you use on towel dried or damp hair. When I use this I don’t use a rinse out conditioner. A little goes a long way. Leave it in the hair for about 5 minutes to activate before styling. Really works to smooth out hair and restore moisture.

The latest in leave-in treatments is the Living Proof Triple Bond Complex Leave-in Hair Treatment ($45). This is the newest one I’ve tried and I really like this one too. With this formula a little goes a very long way, so I’d say less is more. This is another product you leave in the hair after shampoo/cleansing. Leave it in 10 minutes before blow drying or heat styling. It’s designed to be a hair strengthener that leaves it smooth and shiny.

Two Ways To Use the ghd Platinum+ 1 Inch Styler

July 12, 2022

ghd Platinum+ 1” Styler

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in full swing right now and one of my favorite hair styling tools is part of the sale for their Beauty Exclusives! I was recently able to test out the ghd Platinum+ 1” Styler and it’s my new holy grail styling tool for getting a smooth sleek look. It’s a versatile tool that you can also use to curl your hair. Available in Black and White on sale for $187 (33% off, normally $279).

I’m excited to share a closer look demo of how to use ghd Platinum+ Styler. After having tested so many brands of heat tools over the years I can say this one is my favorite for straightening!

ghd Platinum+ 1” Styler

ghd Platinum+ 1” Styler

The ghd Platinum+ Styler is a 1-inch flat iron set at one temperature of 365 degrees fahrenheit. I’ve always used tools with multiple heat settings but learned that ghd has scientifically proven this is the optimum temperature for long lasting style that will also keep hair healthy with the least amount of damage. It will keep your color protected and hair healthy too. The temperature is at the right temperature for effective styling so you can style your hair sections in a single pass.

ghd calls this tool their “ultimate smart styler” because it has “ultra-zone technology.” Sensors are active across both plates and they monitor the heat 250x per second to ensure the temperature remains consistent depending on your hair thickness and the speed at which you use the styler.

I love that it heats up quickly (in 20 seconds), has an automatic shut off mode after 30 minutes and has a wishbone hinge which makes it easy to hold and use. The plates are gloss coated so they glide along the hair easily – no tugging or snagging.

Look 1: Sleek and Smooth

ghd Bodyguard Heat Protect Spray

ghd Bodyguard Heat Protect Spray

For a smooth, sleek and shiny hair look I first spritz on a heat protectant on dry hair. I tried the ghd Bodyguard Heat Protect Spray ($25) and really like it! It dispenses an ultra-fine mist and coats the hair evenly with a few spritzes. I like that it’s light enough in finish that it doesn’t weight the hair down at all.

Spritz and comb through, then straighten hair in small sections. Below is a look at the finished result! Most people think I have naturally smooth shiny hair but it’s not the case at all. I have thick unruly frizz prone hair. It takes a lot of work and product to keep it looking smooth. This straightener makes styling my hair so much easier.

Look 2: Curls

ghd Platinum+ 1” Styler Curled Hair

You can also use the ghd Platinum+ Styler to curl the hair. I usually wear my hair straight whether it’s air dried, blow dried or straightened. I had quite a few mishaps with curling irons in the past which usually resulted me burning my forehead and fingers (even with gloves). A few tools I’ve tried have been so hot they fried my hair off. The ghd Platinum+ Styler has been perfect for someone like me. It has a rounded edge around the plates and they act like a buffer so there’s no contact with skin (no forehead burns, yay!). I can also hold the outside tip without getting burned. The hinge is easy enough to clamp and close around the hair that you don’t need to hold the end but sometimes it’s nice to – especially if you want to do a back and forth for an almost crimped-like beach wave.

ghd Platinum+ 1” Styler Curled Hair

To curl I section and clip hair up to curl in layers and sections. I hold the tool upside down and loop sections around the iron away from the face. Once looped just clamp and slowly drag the tool through the hair to the ends. An angled hold and faster speed will give me looser more natural looking curls.

Curls last all day with this tool, even in this Florida humidity although they do relax slightly as time goes on (which I actually like for a more lived-in look).

I really love the ghd Platinum+ Styler! I plan on taking it with me on every trip from now on. You can find it on sale at Nordstrom for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale now through July 31st. Available in both black and white for $187. I highly recommend checking it out!

Smooth Shiny Hair with Kerastase

October 14, 2021

Kerastase Elixir Ultime review

A number of you have asked for more hair styling features and reviews and today I’m excited to share a look at the Kerastase Elixir Ultime Oil Serum ($51 for 3.4 oz/100 ml) available at Sephora. It’s one of my favorite multi-tasking products to add hydration to my ends, reduce frizz and add shine without weighing down my hair.

The Elixir Ultime Oil Serum has a blend of different oils including marula oil (for softness and shine), camelia oil (to keep in moisture) and argan oil (to strengthen and protect). It’s suitable for all hair types and has a beautiful scent with a mix of floral and woody notes.

You can use this on damp hair before you blow dry as it doubles as a heat protectant and leave in conditioner. One pump is enough to coat my entire head evenly from roots to ends on damp hair.

You can also use this as a finishing product worked into the ends to help with any dry areas or lightly throughout the hair to smooth frizz and add shine. I’ll sometimes pair it with one of their hair primers like the Discipline or Resistance Blow Dry Primer for added heat protection. Shine will last up to 48 hours. It also works to seal split ends. If you’re looking for a good hair oil, I highly recommend checking this one out!

You can also find the Elixir Ultime available in a Travel Size (1.7 oz/50 ml), Shampoo, Conditioner and Mask format. Do you have any Kerastase favorites? Let me know what your favorite line is!

Available at Sephora.

Hair Care Loves Right Now

September 29, 2021

Hair Care Favorites from Oribe, Sisley, Olaplex, dpHue, Molton Brown

By popular request I have an updated Hair Care Roundup! Today’s roundup is Part 1 focused on shampoos, conditioners, and masks. Part 2 (coming soon) will have my favorites for styling. I have thick hair strands but with age I’ve noticed some thinning. My hair hasn’t been highlighted or bleached for at least a year since I tried to grow out my natural hair color and also get rid of the damaged sections. This year I noticed a lot more white hairs start to pop up and started to do root touch ups. I might go back for some color at some point soon.

For hair care since I have thick naturally frizzy hair I look for smoothing products. I wash my hair either daily or every other day. Here are my favorite brands right now.

Hair Rituel by Sisley

Best of Hair Rituel by Sisley | The Beauty Lookbook

The best of the best that I’ve tried is from Sisley with the Hair Rituel line. There is really nothing quite as good in my experience and 100% worth the splurge. I try to stock up during sales or good gift with purchase options. Saks is having their Friends and Family event with 15% off beauty (on most brands, now through 10/4) and the Sisley-Paris Hair Rituel website often has good bundles and offers.

I love that the line has a very natural soothing scent with each product so it’s not heavily perfumed and won’t interfere with my fragrances. My favorites:

Revitalizing Smoothing Shampoo ($79 for 200 ml) – I have thicker hair strands that is frizz prone and this helps the best to smooth my hair. It has macadamia oil which adds a nice shine. It’s comforting to the scalp and lathers well. (Also available in a Jumbo 500 ml Bottle which I have splurged on before.)

Restructuring Conditioner ($79 for 200 ml) – Another favorite to help hydrate hair, restore shine and works well to smooth and detangle.

Regenerating Mask ($100 for 200 ml) – I use this once a week or alternate with my other hair masks. It has four botanical oils including Shea, Macadamia, Camellia and Hazelnut. Adds shine and feels nice when massaged into the roots.

Nourishing Balm* ($120, apply as needed) – A unique pre-shampoo treatment I apply on ends and leave in for 30 minutes before rinsing out. Works well when ends feel ultra dry or brittle.

Soothing Rebalancing Shampoo with Sage Extract* ($79 for 200 ml) – This is the latest from Sisley for scalp care to be used in conjunction with their new Soothing Rebalancing Cure for a 3 week intensive program to rebalance the scalp. I have a pretty healthy scalp so I use this as a clarifying treatment 1x per week to help rebalance everything. It works to help reset everything for my scalp as needed.

As an intensive program treatment, they recommend using this 3x per week for 3 weeks. After they recommend alternating with your regular shampoo.

Pre-Shampoo Purifying Mask ($100 for 200 ml) – a unique mask that absorbs excess oil, dirt and impurities in a White Clay form. Love that it has a tip applicator so you can squeeze it right into the scalp. Helps to rebalance and clean. One of the few scalp treatments I can use because others don’t rinse easily or are irritating on my sensitive scalp.

Oribe

Oribe Gold Lust Favorites | The Beauty Lookbook

Another long-time favorite, I really love Oribe Hair Care and Styling Products. My go-to formulas for cleansing include the Gold Lust Repair Shampoo ($49 for 8.5 oz) and Conditioner ($52 for 6.8 oz). This line is great for shiny healthy hair. I love that both help hydrate and add shine without weighing it down. I also have used and loved the Gold Lust Transformative Masque ($66) but usually end up repurchasing other formulas.

You can find these in travel sizes individually or in the Oribe Obsessed Set ($49). Also available in the Liter sizes which are a much better buy value-wise in the jumbo bottles (I have bought in the larger sizes and think it’s 100% worth it). During the holiday they often have sets or bundles that give you a price break.

Olaplex

Olaplex Favorites | The Beauty Lookbook

It was love at first wash with Olaplex. So many recommended it and I found perfect when I had color-treated hair. It is one of the few bonding/strengthening formulas that I’ve tried and truly liked. With color treatment + heat styling I noticed my hair became more sensitive and prone to breakage. Olaplex really helped prevent breakage for me. I still use it on non-color treated hair and love it. I would say this formula is probably my most repurchased in hair care.

If you’ve never tried the line I 100% recommend getting their Healthy Hair Essentials Set ($60, for an $84 value) to try their best sellers at a price break.

I think the No. 3 Hair Perfector really makes a difference as a pre-wash strengthening treatment. The No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner are great for dry or damaged hair.

I tried the No. 8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask and thought it was just ok. A bit small for the price and the pump wasn’t easy to use (kept getting stuck).

I buy mine from Sephora or Nordstrom. Shop My Olaplex Favorites:

dpHue

dpHue Hair Care Favorites

dpHue is a great line for hair care I feel is unique in the hair care industry. Their Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse ($35 for 8.5 oz, or $57 for 20 oz) is a great cleanser you can use instead of shampoo to clean the hair without stripping it. The Apple Cider Vinegar scent is pretty potent when you have it on the scalp, but once rinsed out I don’t smell it.

They recently launched an Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse Lite* ($35 for 8.5 oz) which is better suited for fine hair. I tried this and liked it but since I have thicker hair, I prefer the original.

The Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Masque* ($42 for 9 oz) is a new favorite. I just started using it and think it’s a great medium-nourishing hair mask. I like that it works on the ends but doesn’t feel too heavy. It also doesn’t have the same Apple Cider Vinegar scent the rinse does. The masque is more floral scented. Will 100% repurchase.

Molton Brown

Molton Brown Botanical Hair Care Review

Molton Brown recently launched new Botanical Hair Care Collection* in a few formulas. I tried the new Hydrating Shampoo ($30 for 10 fl oz) and Hydrating Conditioner ($35 for 10 fl oz) and the Repairing Shampoo ($30 for 10 fl oz) and Repairing Conditioner ($35 for 10 fl oz). They also added an Intense Repairing Hair Mask ($40).

I tried each one and was really impressed with the Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner formula. It contains Camomile to soothe and restore hair. Left my hair smooth and cleansed. I also really like the Intense Repairing Mask for added hydration. Highly recommend checking it out! Available at Molton Brown.

___________

Other Loves

A few other loves I wanted to mention that I’ve loved. The Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Deeply Reparative Hair Mask is the best deep hydration mask I’ve tried. I use this once a week and love it. I am currently out but just repurchased.

Christophe Robin makes some great masks as well (also currently out but on my list to repurchase once I use other products up). The Christophe Regenerating Hair Mask with Prickly Pear Seed Oil is also a phenomenal product to restore shine and moisture. It is on the thick side so I recommend you avoid putting it directly on the scalp because it can be a bit difficult to rinse out. For color-treated hair the Shade Variation Masks were life savers for me. I used the Warm Chestnut one and loved it!

Kerastase is another brand I really love. When I had highlights, I really loved the Blond Absolu Anti-Brass Purple Shampoo, Blond Absolu Hydrating Illuminating Shampoo and Strengthening Conditioner. It was one of the few formulas I LOVED for color-treated hair.

Also really like the Kerastase Resistance lineup as well, just haven’t repurchased in a while but it’s the one formula I keep going back to with Kerastase.

If you’re looking for a new shampoo or conditioner to try I hope you found this roundup helpful! Since the holiday season is a few months away I already see a lot of mini value sets out. I always try minis before buying the full size.

Let me know what your favorites are right now! Would love to hear about your hair care routine! Stay tuned for styling favorites soon!

Best Hair Care Sephora Sale

The Sephora Spring Savings Event starts on 4/9 for Rouge Members! I’ve put together my list of top recommendations in a 3 part series: Hair, Skin and Makeup. I’m kicking off the first roundup with my top picks for hair care.

The event is available to Rouge Members first for early access online and in store. The dates and savings by tier are listed below. Some exclusions and limits apply. Use code OMGSPRING at checkout to redeem offer:

  • Rouge Members Save 20% off 4/9 to 4/19
  • VIB Members Save 15% off 4/13 to 4/19
  • Insiders Save 10% off 4/15 to 4/19

Here are my favorites for hair care split by category. I’ve tested so much product over the years and I’m one who washes my hair almost daily. I go through a lot of shampoo and conditioners. I neglected masks for a while but started using them again and am so amazed at how good some are. I didn’t realize how dry my hair was!

Best Shampoo and Conditioners

Best Shampoo + Conditioners and Hair Masks

My three go-to brands at Sephora for shampoo and conditioner these days are Olaplex, Oribe and Briogeo. I don’t use a clarifying shampoo or product regularly but I really like the rinse from dpHUE. What I use and repurchase the most frequently:

Best Hair Mask

My go-to mask has been the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair. When I had more noticeable highlights I also really loved the Christophe Robin Shade Variations (available in different tones). It lasts about 3-5 washes. For an at home darkening product I also loved the Moroccanoil Color Depositing Mask in Cocoa. This worked really well when I had some brassy highlights that were growing out and I wanted a temporary color at home (also only lasts about 5 washes for me).

For a deeper condition I can’t rave enough about the one from Kiehl’s. It’s one I just recently discovered and I’m 100% obsessed. If I could just pick one, it would be the Kiehl’s for non-color treated hair. For color-treated hair plus tint I really love Christophe Robin.

One from the archives, hair highlights from 2018. Shine is thanks to the Christophe Robin Shade Variation Hair Mask in Warm Chestnut.

Best Dry Shampoo + Styling Favorites

Best Hair Care Styling Products

For dry shampoo I try to keep this to a minimum because I find it can build up. In Florida with the heat and humidity + sweat if I’m outdoors there is no skipping a wash. I do like some of these to add texture though. Ones I really love:

Best Hair Styling: Hold + Shine

For styling these are products I like to either add hold or shine:

Best Heat Protectants or Primers

If you blow dry or heat treat your hair, here are the best heat protectants I’ve tried:

Misc.

Dyson Airwrap Styler

Andrew bought the Dyson Airwrap Complete Set for me over Christmas and I absolutely love it. I have not yet reviewed it but hope to soon. The Complete Set is usually almost always sold out. They do have some bundles pop up every once in a while like the Airwrap Styler Limited-Edition Gift Set (same as the complete but with an added pouch).

During the holiday I’m that person who is almost impossible to find a present for. I finally found something beauty-related that I wouldn’t buy for myself but still kind wanted. I held off mainly because I already own the Supersonic Hair Dryer.

I have not used the Supersonic since I got the Airwrap in December. I love the versatility of the Airwrap version and attachments are easy to use. Power-wise I feel like the Supersonic is stronger in the airflow and is also easier to use with a traditional round brush. The Airwrap is still very powerful and I find it gentler on my hair.

Dyson Airwrap Styler

I’ve tried all the attachments. Review very soon! I did buy the 1.2 inch Long Barrel Attachment curlers which is best for my hair length. In December the set barrels worked just fine but I have not had a hair cut in a few months and find the longer barrels work better.

Haircare Holiday Gift Guide

Holiday Gift Guide: For the Haircare Lover

Happy Wednesday! If you’re looking for some gifts for the hair care lover here are some things I’ve used and love. There are tons of sets at the $25 and under price point so if you’re looking for something more budget-friendly I’ve linked a bunch below. IGK, Living Proof and Briogeo have tons of minis and sets to pick from.

 

 

For hair accessories I’ve been loving the hair clips from J.Crew – I find they are pretty good quality and hold up well for my hair. I like that they have different sizes available and the tortoise print ones are pretty! I’m a huge fan of Slip Scrunchies because they won’t tug or pull my hair. They will stretch out with use, but still retain their elasticity for me.

 

 

For brushes I have so many loves – all for different purposes. For wet hair I prefer wide tooth combs like the Mason Pearson Rake Comb, Yves Durif Comb or the one from Crown Affair to brush out wet/damp hair. For brushes I’ve been loving the T3 Detangling Brush for wet hair (bought this in their Luxe Brush Set).

For a round blow dry brush I can’t use one that is too wide because it’s just hard for me to do on my own. I really like the T3 Volume Round Brush and the Sisley Blow Dry Brush No 2. For a regular vent brush the Yves Durif Brush has been my go-to for a while now.

For smoothing and brushing out dry hair I love the Sisley Radiance Brush.

 

 

For a luxurious treat, my favorite lines are Oribe and Sisley. I don’t think you can go wrong with either brand. I love the Oribe Gold Lust line and their Styling Set. For oils I think the Sisley Hair Oil is the best one I’ve tried out of any brand. I can’t recommend it enough (review here in case you missed it a few years ago).

 

 

In terms of hair styling tools, I’m on the hunt for some new ones. For hair dryers I’ve still been using the Harry Josh and Dyson but I’m looking for something new. I haven’t quite decided what to buy next but if you have any you really love let me know in the comments! I stopped using a curling iron as I found my hair became a lot more fragile after color treating it. For straighteners I like the HAI Convertible Iron and the Dyson Corrale Straightener but am super interested in the new L’Oreal Steampod. If I end up getting anything new I will be sure to review it!
