I love love love Living Proof shampoo and conditioner because it helps keep your hair clean in between washes! It’s amazing. Really. I wish it wasn’t $25/bottle, but it’s worth it, to me. I get it at Costco, and it’s cheaper. I also use their dry shampoo (once in awhile) or oribe dry texturizing spray (a godsend for volume!)
I actually have been hearing a lot of women are having issues with their scalp from overuse of said product.May 4, 2017 at 4:02 pm #685066anonymousseParticipant
That said, I couldn’t ever workout and then not wash my hair…I’m too sweaty.May 4, 2017 at 4:08 pm #685069
I know, I’m willing to just not sweat. I sacrifice heart health for hair health.May 9, 2017 at 9:40 am #686150
@Em, I was at the supermarket and saw this cheapo Suave product (looks like the price in this link is for a 3-pack!), and picked it up. I liked the keratin idea. It works frickin awesome! I’m just getting the hang of blowing out my own hair after leaving it to the pros for years, and so far this is the smoothest and shiniest it’s looked. I’m very impressed.
BUT, over time, keratin and the silicone that are in it are going to coat your hair and start making it feel dry and brittle, so you would need to use a clarifying shampoo from time to time to get the buildup off.
Oribe Supershine, on the other hand, is a very versatile product you can use for air drying or blow drying, it has thermal and UV protection, and won’t build up. But I feel like since I’m not a pro and can’t get the tension a stylist can get, the Suave did a better job of making my hair smooth and shiny for a DIY blowout.May 9, 2017 at 1:16 pm #686192emGuest
thanks Kate! I will try that. Glad to know I’m not the only who basically has to wash up after a gym session; dry shampoo just makes my hair look sweaty and also crunchy at the same time, not clean. Thanks again! gonna do more research and finally commit to one of these products (prob Sauve and the Oribe serum)May 9, 2017 at 1:48 pm #686200KateGuest
I also tried the Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil primer by Bumble + Bumble on one day, and a Tresseme Sleek Blow Dry Balm that gets good reviews on another day, because I had both in my basket of hair products (all in the name of research). When I used the Invisible Oil, my hair felt lighter and fluffier in a way I didn’t love, but it wasn’t bad. The Tresseme stuff was pretty good, but the Suave is best overall in terms of the finished look. This is with blowdrying with a dryer that IS a round ceramic brush essentially, with heat coming out of it. No need for any straightening or curling iron after that, it looks good as is.May 10, 2017 at 12:13 pm #686362emGuest
thanks everyone. placing an order for the Kerastase Nectar Thermique with frizz taming. I had good results with their products before is why and also at a certain point I just had to commit to something. I’m very tempted to buy the rolling brush… seems handy for travel which I’ll be doing a fair bit of in the coming months. thank you everyone. Will come back with results in a couple weeksMay 10, 2017 at 12:16 pm #686363CopaParticipant
Kate Middleton and I both use Kersatase Nectar Thermique, so you know it’s gonna be good. 😉 I’m debating ordering a Kerastase hair mask. The salon I go to uses a lot of Kerastase products and I love them, and I’ve had a mask done at the salon before and loved it, but I have such a hard time parting with so much money on a single product.May 10, 2017 at 12:17 pm #686364emGuest
I lied. I went back to my order and bought the brush, too.May 10, 2017 at 12:23 pm #686365
Maybe I’ll try to get a sample of the Kerastase since it’s that good. Never tried the brand.
That brush is bigger than it looks! Definitely not “travel size,” but you could fit it in a suitcase and I’m sure it’s better than those little hotel dryers.May 10, 2017 at 4:53 pm #686435EmGuest
yeah, that’s still works. Gotta have good hair on the go!May 15, 2017 at 3:34 pm #686975emGuest
Following up. I got both the items firs thing this morning right out of the shower. The Kerastase is wonderful; I can’t tell if there will be longterm improvement yet (obvs) but my hair is way less frizzy, feels very soft and the smell is great, just smells like “clean” hair, not perfume.
The brush: wow, it is HUGE! I have tiny hands and it is a bit of a struggle BUT so far I like the results of my one try. Way faster than blowdry followed by straightener and easier than managing a brush and hairdrier at once. I’ll have to keep using it to get a better handle on it but so far I am a fan. Thanks everyone! I will try the Suave masque and shampoos later in the summer.
