Just as the cosmetics and skincare companies use this time of year to release their hot new products, the hair care industry does the same....but do you really need the newest formula or hair serum or the latest ion technology flat iron? You just might.....
BED HEAD Urban Antidotes $25 Each - Professional salons only www.tigihaircare.com
Environmental factors such as pollution, sun, and free radicals can wreak havoc on your hair, so TiGi now offers a way to counteract nature! With three levels of damage control, along with sweet smell that's good enough to eat this new line is perfect for an urbanites needing softer, fuller hair!
I have always been a huge fan of Bed Head products, and this one does not disappoint, especially if you have been damaging your hair all summer, and are now back to the polluted, chilly autumn air of the city!
NUHAIR Hair Regrowth System $50 - Folica www.folica.com
Supports follicular growth and blocks DHT, the hormone that causes hair loss, while nourishing the scalp. Including a tablet taken orally as well as a topical serum.
This product says you need to take for 3-4 months to see results, so $200 later you still could see nothing happening. Over the counter hair regrowth potions are usually a scam, so save your money and try Propecia, the only FDA approved drug to treat hair loss.
ALTERNA Caviar Anti-Aging Experience $30 (Travel Set) - Sephora Stores www.sephora.com
This line of products contain Alterna's patented Age-Control Complex, Enzymetherapy, Color Hold, and Seasilk technologies which combine proteins, marine enzymes, and antioxidants to improve texture, shine, and color retention.
These anti-aging haircare regimens are often a hoax, and buying the full size set will cost you a pretty penny. My advice: if you want to try it out, definitely start with the travel set, and if you love it, invest in the full size products.
LIVING PROOF No Frizz Styling Cream $35 - Sephora Stores www.sephora.com
Living Proof has been on the forefront of anti-frizz technology for over 30 years and they do not disappoint. Addressing the two major causes of frizz: humidity and friction, this weightless cream coats hair with a protective environmental barrier.
Though not technically a new product, this is the perfect way to protect your hair from the stress of city life (or wind/water) this fall. Though the bottle seems small, a little goes a long way and this will last you all season.
KERATIN COMPLEX KeraStyler 1" Flat Iron $100 - Folica www.folica.com
Boasts variable temperature control and dual-voltage capability with a titanium plate for luster and shine.
Stay away from flat irons at all costs, they destroy your hair. If you must get curly hair straight, try using a round brush and a blow dryer, which does far less damage to your hair!
