We still remember the days we washed our hair with 2-in-1 shampoo-conditioner from generic supermarket brands. Now that our tastes have grown more sophisticated, our hair care vocabulary has expanded to include more targeted (not to mention prettier) products. Check out the latest superstars to rock our world—there’s something for every type of hair.
Solution: Before you fly to the nearest salon and ask for a pixie cut, perform some emergency TLC with Ojon’s damage reverse™ Restorative Hair Treatment Plus. The creamy mask has a high concentration of healing ojon oil that smooths ragged ends and crazy flyaways. We love the balm-like consistency, which melts into silky oil in the warmth of your palms.
Solution: As we age, our hair naturally thins out and becomes more prone to breakage. Keep strands youthful with anti-aging products like Kérastase’s volume-enhancing Age Premium Bain Substantif. This smart shampoo is made with a calcium compound to strengthen your follicles (it does for your hair what your daily glass of milk does for your bones).
Solution: The price of all those highlights? Fried, brittle hair that’s prone to breakage. You need a conditioning treatment to coax it back to health. We like amika’s Obliphica Nourishing Mask, which uses a combination of natural obliphica and argan oils to heal dehydrated strands.
Solution: With fuzzy, flyaway strands, the trick is calming them down without adding too much heaviness. Oscar Blandi’s Olio di Jasmine Serum lightly tamps down frizz to give hair sleekness and shine. Plus, it protects against damage from heat styling.
Solution: Counterintuitive as it seems, an oil-based shampoo is just what you need. Shu Uemura’s Cleansing Oil Shampoo binds with any excess oil and product buildup on your scalp and then whisks it all away. The foaming formula uses fragrant jasmine, camellia, and rose oils, plus purifying peppermint.
