HAIR IT IS: SUMMER'S BEST HAIR STYLING PRODUCTS THAT WORK
HAIR IT IS
I saw this Vogue cover and editorial online years ago. I was fully inspired. Since then natural hair has become the norm on the cover of Vogue. It’s taken decades but here we are and i couldn’t be more excited.
As a natural hair girl, I love to try new products and rotate them in and out of my hair’s weekly treatments. I am often asked questions like “Who does your hair?”, “What do you use in your hair?” , “How do you get your hair to look like that?” Here are my favorite hair products and why I love them!
The Shu Uemura Art of Hair Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil is a conditioning oil for all hair types but it moisturizes dry, damaged hair and adds shine so it’s ideal for cold harsh winters or excessive dry climates. It’s light and transparent serum smells like sweet camellia flowers. The oil absorbs quickly without leaving hair and scalp oily. It’s not cheap, but it does perform several functions in one: It’s a deep conditioner when rubbed on dry hair before shampooing, a leave-in conditioner when massaged into hair and scalp before bed, a frizz fighter when applied (sparingly) to wet curls, and a shine serum when patted over just-dried hair. $68.00
Design Essentials® Sleek MAX Edge Control is a non-flaking smoothing gel that provides a long-lasting maximum hold when smoothing the hairline. Sleek Max delivers a polished look while adding moisture and sheen to any style. Perfect for smoothing and enhancing hair edges or tapered cuts, creating texture on spiked styles or ponytails, or taming unruly hair. Ideal for medium to coarse textures. My edges are thick and ultra curly, this stuff works! $12.00
