  • Fighting Frizz: The Best Moisturizing Shampoos and Conditioners

    Brown hairHair a little out of control? Good thing there are a variety of natural ways to tame frizz and create a sleek look! Here are a few of our favorite products, packed with nature's best ingredients for fighting flyaways.

    Tress Taming Shampoos

    Unmanageable hair could be misidentified as a trendy hairstyle, but if that’s not the look you’re going for, then take action with a serious moisturizing plan. Show your hair who's in charge with a daily dose of Acure’s Triple Moisture Repairing Moroccan Argan Stem Cell Shampoo, which rescues distressed hair quickly with a patented triple moisture system. This shampoo uses plant stem cell technology to boost hair health right at the follicle and is vegan friendly and cruelty free.

    Another one to try: Intelligent Nutrients' PureLuxe Shampoo. Designed to fight against dry, damaged and color treated hair, this rich and creamy shampoo helps repair, smooth and nurse dry hair back to health.

    Calming Conditioners

    To seal in moisturize for all-day frizz relief, follow your shampoo regimen with a high-quality conditioner. MOP's C-System Hydrating Conditioner is specially designed for coarse, hard to manage hair. Its antioxidant-rich formula adds hydration to wily tresses, leaving it with a healthy sheen and easy to style.

    Rated best conditioner by Elle Magazine, Max Green Alchemy's Scalp Rescue Conditioner is perfect to use in the dry winter months. This 100 percent plant-based conditioner is specifically designed to improve dry, flaky, dehydrated scalps naturally, and is safe for dandruff sufferers and color-treated hair. Packed with macadamia seed oil, lavender and vitamin C ester, it will leave your hair silky smooth!

    Frizz-Fighting Finishing Touches

    In addition to selecting the best moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to fight frizz, you may want to consider minimizing the use of heat styling, which promotes hair damage. Those living in humid climates or those who want a bit of extra protection throughout the day might consider taking an extra step and use conditioning oil such as Dr. Hauschka's Neem Hair Oil, designed to soothe the scalp while adding shine, strength and manageability to the hair.

    With the right tools, you CAN come out victorious in the battle against frizz!

  • Hair Care Ingredients That Work

    Whether you want a sleek look or a fuller 'do, this month we've got great deals on all-natural hair care. We got a little advice from Darcie Woods, esthetician and Connie Cortez, cosmetologist, at our Monterey store, on great products that can help every type of hair.

    Goal: Smoothness

    Juice Organics PomSmooth Shampoo & Conditioner
    Key ingredients: "The aloe juice, shea butter, olive oil and jojoba help make your hair silky," sats Connie. "Aloe is also going to help with shine, and help bring down any flyaways." It especially helps frizzy or color-treated hair, she says, since the ingredients help soften and condition the ends.

    Goal: Hydration

    MOP C-System Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner
    Key ingredients: "All those lovely fruit and flower oils-including geranium, lemon peel, orange and ginger root oils-help coat the hair shaft to smooth and hydrate," says Darcie.

    Goal: Volume
    Yes To Tomatoes Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner
    Key ingredients: The nectarine extract helps fuse fruit pectin polymers to lank hair to create volume. "And the Dead Sea water, which is naturally full of salt, probably helps give that full beachy feel to your hair," adds Darcie. The antioxidant lycopene found in tomatoes also helps clear excess oil from your hair and scalp, which can weigh hair down.

    Goal: Clarify (especially after the pool!)

    Acure Organics Lemongrass & Argan Stem Cell Shampoo & Conditioner
    Key ingredients: Fruit oils from pomegranate, coconut, açai and blackberry help strip the impurities from your hair, which is great if you have too much oil or like to swim in chlorinated pools. "This one has aloe, CoQ10, avocado and olive oil, which clarify without drying your hair," says Connie. "So many awesome ingredients, and the smell is amazing!"

    Goal: Tame curls or frizz

    Giovanni Organics Smooth as Silk Shampoo & Conditioner
    Key ingredients: "There's a lot of vegetable and soy protein in there," says Connie. "The soy protein especially, adds moisture and penetrates into damaged hair to help repair it." Pair that with a variety of oils, like rosemary, orange and mango, and you've got a great way to nourish frizzy locks. But, Connie adds, the Smooth as Silk products won't add any volume, so it's not a good choice for those with fine or thin hair.
