"Exposure to the heat and sun can cause damage to your hair, especially if your hair is already color-treated. This is exactly why we created our Detangle Nourishment Spray ($24). This leave-in spray not only assists with detangling, but also conditions and protects damaged and color-treated hair with an added UV protector. Key ingredients include jojoba, which helps to nourish and moisturize the hair, and calendula, which helps to soothe and relax hair at the roots."
"Get that wash-and-wear, sexy, beach-y look by using the Refresh Dry Shampoo ($18). It’s a quick, waterless way to rejuvenate and restyle your hair while giving it a break in between shampoos. It works to absorb excess oils from the scalp, and provides a natural way to polish and re-texturize your hair. Hair instantly regains volume and freshness. Here’s how we use it in the salon: Lift hair section by section where necessary and spray along the scalp and hair root area. Wait 30 seconds to allow for full absorption and massage lightly with fingertips in to scalp. Comb through and style as desired."
For a warm-weather wedding, what products do you recommend that will give you hold, but not weigh your hair down?
"Our Perfect Hold Hairspray ($24) is a light and lasting mist hairspray that gives just the right amount of natural control and conditioning support to protect and retain the shape and style of great-looking hair. You’ll also love the fact that it contains UV filters to protect the hair from sun damage, and it's fortified with Shikakai Oil to tame frizz and fly-aways."
"Indian Gooseberry Oil ($42), the hero product of our line—it’s an absolute essential. Indian Gooseberry is one of the world’s most powerful antioxidants and literally absorbs itself into each strand, acting like vitamins for your hair. It acts as a protectant when applied to damp hair before blow-drying and gives a smooth and shiny finish. It's a lifesaver at the pool."
