Do you ever feel better than you do when your hair looks fabulous? All seems right in the world when all looks good on our heads. Unfortunately, short of seeking professional help, having our hair consistently look fabulous can be a crap shoot. Until now! The products in this kit can turn any mane into a masterpiece. At Travel Beauty, we have taken a stab at putting together a hair care kit filled with off the beaten path products that we’ve found work wonders for most. This collection of hair heroes (a term coined by Philip Kingsley) have become Our Hair-oes. We hope that they will be yours as well.
Let’s take Our Hair Care Collection From the Top…of Your Head
We start with shampoo, of course. Humid weather can cause even the sleekest hair to frizz up. Though we usually rely on styling and finishing products to defrizz, you can start the job with the proper shampoo. Caretrico Moist Bounce Shampoo contains an amino acid that actually rebuilds the hair’s ability to retain water. Greater water retention means smoother, silkier, shinier hair…less frizz, less fuzz. This shampoo is an absolute lifesaver for anyone who highlights his or her hair.
Under One Conditioner
Philip Kingsley’s award-winning Elasticizer deserves all the accolades it’s received over the years. We love it so because it is as versatile as it is effective. Though it was created as the world’s first pre-shampoo conditioning treatment, Elasticizer can be used pre-shampoo (for fine hair), post-shampoo or as a leave-in conditioning/styling treatment (for thick hair), depending on your hair type and condition. We know because we’ve tried them all with great success!
What exactly does it do? The name really says it all. When hair is healthy, it stretches when wet before returning to its original length when dry. Hair in poor condition, however, snaps and breaks when stretched because it lacks elasticity. Elasticizer delivers mega-moisture to the hair’s cuticle, adding suppleness, elasticity and bounce that are visible after just one use. Unlike many deep conditioning treatments, it won’t weigh down or coat even the finest hair.
A Natural Hair Kit Down to the Roots
Usually, we put our conditioner in our hair and leave it sitting there while we tend to other shower tasks. The nifty Du-Boa Ceramide 2+ Ion Scalp Massager lets you take a more active role in your hair care. It perfectly distributes conditioning treatments throughout your hair so every strand feels the love. It’s a must-have for dry, damaged and/or processed hair. This massager stimulates the scalp, increasing circulation and contains cleansing negative ions to help remove scalp build-up from treatments and styling products. This is one deep cleaning chore we actually look forward to!
We would be remiss if we didn’t mention Vine Minus Ion Care Water, though we know we mention it a lot! This truly amazing hair and skin priming spray is a super-booster for all other products you use, and is always our first step of hair styling. It also adds moisture and volume and feels super-refreshing. We take a travel-friendly bottle of it with us wherever we go.
