WANT SHINY HEALTHY HAIR? GET THE STAR TREATMENT WITH THESE NEW PRODUCTS
Ever wonder how celebrities like Eva Longoria, Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Lopez always have great, shiny hair? These new L’Oreal products will give your hair that star-studded boost it’s been looking for.
Lately, I’ve been raving about oil. Not the kind you eat, but the kind that when used topically (no they don’t make your skin oily causing breakouts), give you soft, supple skin. But another way to use oils is in your hair care regimen.
Most people tend to shy away from using oils on their hair for fear they will end up with a greasy look. Not so. If you use a dime amount and apply where you’re suppose to, on the ends, your hair will thank you for it.
The new L’Oreal Paris Hair Expertise Precious Oils is a universal treatment that nourishes, protects, softens and adds shine to your hair, without weighing it down. Enriched with six flower oils—including Lotus Oil (to nourish), Chamomile Oil (restore shine), Tiare Oil (to prevent drying), Dog Daisy Oil (to restore vibrancy), Rose Oil (to supply nutrients to hair), and Linseed Oil (to provide intense nourishment to hair fiber)—the Precious Oils instantly transforms your hair and can be used in a variety of ways.
You can use it as a nourishing mask, to help detangle and protect hair from heat styling, to combat frizz or on dry hair to freshen up your hair throughout the day or night. My favourite way to use the product is to put a few drops in my hand and apply to damp hair after washing. This way, you get all the benefits of the oil in one simple step. I also love to apply a really small amount to dry hair, to liven up my hair, give it a shine boost and rid my hair of flyaways.
It also comes in two formulations to tailor your needs: Color Radiance Sublime Colour Care & Luminous Finish and Nutri-Sleek Sublime Smoothing Care. The Colour Radiance nourishes and protects colour-treated hair and features a UVB filter that protects the colour from dulling, fading or drying out. The Nutri-Sleek formula protects from daily stresses of styling such as washing, and styling with heat appliances. ($9.99 each)
To top things off, the cult favourite hairspray amongst A-list stars, stylists and models, Elnett, now comes in a shine formulation. The new Elnett Satin Infinite Lumiere Hairspray features light micro-reflectors that capture surrounding light, making your hair instantly go from drab to fab. It’s perfect for a night out, or to get noticed as you strut your stuff on the red carpet! ($14.99)
