There’s been a lot of hair care hitting my doorstep lately. Some brands I’ve heard of before and some I’ve never even seen a blip of. Since they’ve been arriving in 2016 I’ve been giving them all a go… and so has my husband, son and daughter. Because it’s go all or go home when it comes to hair care 😉 Below I’ve picked out a few of my (our) favorites from what’s shown up and discussed why they’re awesome to make up this weeks Top 10 Tuesday – New Hair Care Lines.
1 // The largest collection of products I have to share in this list are from Matrix. This first group is from the StyleLink Collection which is their award-winning styling line. A couple are missing from the photo because my husband stole them… basically his holy grail hair styling product of choice was from Redken and they broke his heart and discontinued it. Around that time all of this stuff from Matrix showed up and he fell in love with the Over Achiever 3-in-1 ($18.00 // ULTA Beauty) and the Shape Switcher ($18.00 // ULTA Beauty). He likes to have all-day hold but not have his hair look overly crunchy because then he says his hair looks like it’s thinning =| High maintenance.
My personal faves from StyleLink are the Smooth Setter Smoothing Cream ($18.00 // ULTA Beauty) and Height Riser Volumizing Powder ($18.00 // ULTA Beauty). The Smoothing Cream really helps keep my frizz at bay without weighing it down in all the wrong places. Height Riser sucks up the excessive oil in my crown and gives an excellent hold all day.
2 // In keeping with the Matrix love we need to talk about the best smelling line of hair care in all of the land – Oil Wonders Volume Rose. Yes, you just saw “Oil” and “Volume” in the same title. I was a big skeptic because I wrestle with a very oily scalp, yet my favorite product from this line ended up being the Oil Wonders Volume Rose Plumping Mousse ($20.00 // ULTA Beauty). It kept frizz down and added volume… all without making my hair look oily. By days end my style still looked good, though it didn’t last into the next day like with Height Riser. When I’m looking for a sleeker style and the overall appearance of thick hair this one is my choice.
3 // You didn’t think I’d let Matrix swing on by without talking about dry shampoo did you? A lot of dry shampoos cross my path (since I basically need to inhale it to survive my oily headed life) but the Miracle Extender ($16.00 // ULTA Beauty) has me at another level. Super fab second day hair without the residue AND it smells TDF. YAAASSSS.
4 // StriVectin does hair care?! OF COURSE! Their Color Care Line ($22.00-$29.00 // ULTA Beauty) is fabulous for not only keeping your dye job in check but will give you the qualities of strength, vibrancy, easy to manage… all those things youthful, untreated hair has. My hair feels shiny and soft even when I’m due for a touch-up at the salon. There are several other collections within the line, so if Color Care isn’t up your alley make sure to check the others out.
5 // If you’re looking to remove impurities pick yourself up some Aveeno Pure Renewal Shampoo & Conditioner ($5.99 // Target). They use natural seaweed extract to refresh and make hair more manageable without over-stripping.
6 // For vitamin-infused, professional hair care you’ll want to look into Mitch Stone Shampoo & Conditioner ($36.00 set // Mitch Stone). The line contains VComps which is a “proprietary blend of carefully-curated vitamins, minerals and oils, swirled together in a lush papaya base”. I loved how this worked well for both myself and my daughter (who has dry hair).
7 // When I think about a “pin-up” I’m immediately jealous. Killer bod, gorgeous skin, the best red lipstick and THE BEST HAIR. Beauty and Pinups is a line I’ve never heard of but I was more than willing to give them a test run because of my pin-up obsession as well as the gorgeous packaging. There is a lot to choose from but my favorite item is the Sway Blow Out Styling Primer ($26.00 // Beauty and Pin Ups). It cuts down on drying time while also cutting down on frizz. My daughter, with her dry hair, loves the Flaunt Silkening Shampoo and the Luxe Leave-In Spray On Revitalizing Conditioner.
8 // My holy grail for extending the look of my highlights in between touch-ups (as you know) is the John Frieda Sheer Blonde line ($3.59 // ULTA Beauty). This extends the look of highlights for me so that I’m only going every other month rather than every month.
9 // Speaking of extending things you know that the Redken Pillow Proof ($20.00 // ULTA Beauty) holds an extra special place in my heart. I use this frequently for getting an extra day out of my style and absorbing oils. I also need to give a major shout out to Braid Aid ($25.00 // ULTA Beauty) because it’s literally the only way I can style my daughters hair and Beach Envy Volume Wave Aid ($20.00 // ULTA Beauty) for being my beach wavy hair drug of choice this coming Summer.
10 // Did you really think I’d let a Top 10 go by without mentioning the brand that started my entire frizz free lifestyle? Living Proof holds many faves of mine, most notably the no frizz line. Now they have a No Frizz Nourishing Oil ($20.00 // Sephora). An OIL, you say? For this oily head? YES. Because I keep it only from the nape of the neck to the ends. It’s best for coarse hair, so a very little will do ya if you’re just trying to combat weather related frizzies.
