It is Friday and you know what that means! I’m back on FOX23’s Great Day Green Country and this week I am sharing all that is new and wonderful in the world of hair care from color to shampoo. Every season, it seems as if they are coming up with things bigger and better, from drugstore to salons to keep our tresses looking good. Some of my top new favorites:
Gone are the days of having to spend a fortune at the salon for a change in hair color. I do have some caveats – don’t go lighter or add complex highlights yourself. That is best left to a professional. I’ve been toying with the idea of adding some ombré touches to the ends of my hair myself. It seems this trend isn’t going anywhere. L’Oreal makes this easy with three different formulas. All three use a plastic brush for maximum control and natural looking accents.
L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Ombré Touch is the most subtle effect. Féria Coloured Ombré adds a dash of red, perfect for those who are tempted to go a little edgy or experiment with red tones. Féria Intense Ombré is specifically designed to create an ombré effect on darker hair colors and ethnic hair types. Looking for an all-over change in hair color? Check out the special edition Paris Lumière Collection with three iconic shades inspired by the lights of Paris.
Alterna, one of my favorite salon quality lines and partly owned by Katie Holmes, recently launched their Caviar anti-aging product line with flagship product, Caviar CC Cream for Hair. This multi-tasking styling product works on hair in ten different ways leaving strands healthy and shiny. Having some frizzy moments? Check out Alterna Haircare Caviar Seasilk Oil Gel to give a little hold and control. I’ve been so into the return of flat iron styles and Alterna Caviar Perfect Iron Spray allows me to do it damage and guilt free. Lastly, Alterna Caviar 3-minute Shine Boost recharges even the dullest of hair in a jiffy.
Are you a hair color beginner but still shying away from the salon? Look no further than Madison Reed. This new line makes colorists available through an online color advisor, mobile app, live web chat, digital photo consultation or via phone. And they will even send a colorist to you in San Francisco and New York. The formulas are handcrafted in Italy and come in 27 shades. Everything is ammonia- and resorcinol-free ensuring a fade-resistant, salon-quality color.
And back to L’Oreal – they are on fire! I had fallen hard for their Advanced Haircare line (this mask) and based on its success, they just launched their Advanced Hairstyle line with a focus on performance. Five segments offer whatever our particular hair styling needs: hold (“Lock It”), volume (“Boost It”), smooth (“Sleek It”), curl (“Curve It”) and texture (“TXT It”). And you can’t beat the bargain prices. I’m particularly wild about the Sleek It Iron Straight Heatspray (can you tell I am into the super straight look?) and the Lock It Fine Control Hairspray (it might be beating out my beloved Elnett).
