Summer is (sadly) winding down, but we can't lie—we're pretty pumped for fall style. On top of switching up our wardrobes, a lot of us our re-introducing ourselves to our old friends—hair dryers, curling irons, etc. So, with the re-entry of heat-styling apparatuses, we must also make sure to protect our lovely locks—no one likes a dry, brittle approach to hair. Definitely not cute! Don't worry, though, as usual, we've got you covered. Curly girl favorite Carol's Daughter has just released a collection of thermal protective styling products armed with a miracle ingredient—macadamia oil. The Macadamia Heat Styling Hairspray, Heat Setting Foam, and Hold and Control Smoother are all developed to allow you all the heat-styling you heart desires. The natural compound in macadamia oil, oleic acid, is the same thing that keeps human eyelids soft and supple; when used on hair, the compound creates a protective barrier against heat. The products also include honey extract, henna extract and horsetail extract, which help to smooth ends, protect hair cuticles, and promote elasticity to fight hair breakage. This stuff is all so scientific, and we're loving it!
Carol's Daughter Macadamia Heat Styling Hairspray, $17; Macadamia Heat Setting Foam, $18; Macadamia Hold and Control Smoother, $22, available at Carol's Daughter in September.
