When summertime weather gets as hot and humid as it has been in recent weeks, my hair goes into what I call frizz mode. No sooner do I blow dry my hair, after a minute outside it goes poof … and it’s frizzy again. Here are my top five favourite products to keep locks smooth and under control.
1. Sebastian Potion 9
Infused with nine botanical extracts, the ultra-versatile cream is lightweight and packed full of moisture to keep hair from feeling dry.
2. L’oreal Nude Touch Tecniart Serum
L’oreal’s new Nude Touch line is comprised of three products: a serum, a mousse and a spray. The non-greasy serum gives hair great shine and softness, and protects from the heat of blowdryers or straightening irons.
3. John Frieda Frizz Ease Original Serum
John Frieda’s Frizz Ease has been a cult favourite for years as it’s soothing for even the unruliest of hair. The award-winning serum – which has a yummy floral scent – smooths, tames, hydrates and protects from humidity and UV rays.
4. Caviar Overnight Hair Rescue
This wonder is so easy – it works while you sleep! Deeply moisturizing, it restores and reinforces hair strength, resulting in healthier and more manageable hair by morning. Best of all, it absorbs instantly so it doesn’t leave a greasy residue on your pillow. It’s free from yucky chemicals like parabens or phthalates. Save for color treated hair.
5. Ojon Restorative Leave-In Treatment for Blondes
My favourite post-wash moisturizer, which is lightweight and detangles my locks. It’s super conditioning for all-day hydration.
