As the winter weather comes around and the air gets dryer we all need those products to get us through the season. From wet to dry, to snowy and slushy, the Chrome City girls are constantly trying to keep our hair from splitting and frizzing. Chronicle writer, Hannah, rounds up the best hair care products for this unpredictable Chicago weather.
For everyday styling:
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Oil
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Oil is a must have product for any hair type. Aside from the fact that it smells amazing, this product is nothing less than magical when it comes to styling. I often throw it in my hair when I wake up and it turns my bedhead into voluminous, shiny head of hair that looks like I just walked out of the salon, without even having to touch a styling device. Although it is pricy, a little bit goes a very long way.
For color damaged hair:
Pureology Color Fanatic Deep Conditioning Mask
For any color treated hair using a deep conditioning mask is an absolute essential. After trying a few different brands I have found myself continuously coming back to the Pureology Color Fanatic Deep Conditioning Mask because of its multi-tasking capabilities. Using this product twice or three times a week has completely improved the coarse, damaged pieces of hair that are a result of over coloring and heat damage.
For greasy hair:
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo
One of Amika’s best sellers is the Perk Up Dry Shampoo, and its success is not invalid. Having tried many brands of dry shampoo, I have found Amika’s formula to be the lightest and most effective. Often times a dry shampoo can leave your hair feeling stiff and still unclean but Perk Up does a great job in actually improving your hair’s softness as well as genuinely returning it to that clean, post-wash feeling.
Bumble and Bumble All Style Blow Dry
Many people don’t realize that a key aspect in any good blow dry is the product that they put in their hair before starting. One of my favorite picks that I have found to make a huge difference in my blow dry routine is the Bumble and Bumble All Style Blow Dry which is great in extending and holding your style till the next wash.
Moroccan Oil Hydrating Styling Cream
Some Moroccan Oil products have been known to make naturally oily hair too greasy and look dirty, but the Moroccan Oil Hydrating Styling Cream is much more compatible with all hair types, even the oily ones. This product is great for everyday use and creates a shiny, soft texture that is long lasting until the next wash.
Living Proof Control Hairspray
Living Proof Control hairspray allows the user to have whole day protection from frizz and loose hairs without the sticky, heavy feeling that comes from a lot of hairsprays. I would recommend this product for an everyday use hairspray that will help keep the hair volumized and in place.
