Spring 2016 Hair Edit

Spring 2016 Hair EditAfter a season of wearing cozy hats to fend off the bitter cold, it’s time to free your follicles. These three picks have been my mainstay hair savers this season so far.  As you can see it’s been all about repair with this trio that includes a spray, an oil and a mask.

First up is the Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray. It took about a week of use to see any noticeable difference in my hair. That being said, this is probably the most difference (positive) I’ve seen in my hair since discovering another favourite – the Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer. The best way I can think to describe it is that it’s like having the effects of a good haircut without cutting your hair. The brand’s hair mask, the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask, is great if you’re one for a weekly deep conditioning as it’s not too heavy and it rinses out really well which can be an issue with some hair masks..

Last, but not least, is the Caudalie Divine Oil.  This stuff – use it sparingly if you’ve got finer strands – is great for smoothing any flyaways and adding extra hydration to the ends of hair.  This multi-purpose oil can also be used on your face and body as well.
