4 Products To Fight Fall Frizz
The air is getting dryer, and that means statically-charged strands and poofy, frizzy locks. What’s worse is your beloved hair dryer and heated styling tools tend to add to the problem by stripping your hair of moisture and natural oils in an already dry season. No need to panic, try these super-smoothing products to get the sleek, shiny hair you crave:
Bain de Terre argon oil & passion flower COLOR THERAPY STYLING OIL. A little goes a long way with this incredible oil. It’s formulated for color-treated hair, but works wonders for natural locks as well. A blend of argon, mono, and passion flower oils improves hair’s resilience and adds silkiness and shine. Stressed out strands will be frizz free with only a few drops.
DevaCurl One Condition Hydrate. Those with curly hair, this one goes out to you. Without proper hydration, your bouncy spirals will turn into a frizzy, shapeless mess. The natural botanicals in this cream smooth and moisturize hair for healthy, lightweight curls.
Miss Jessie’s Original Pillow Soft Curls. Say goodbye to heavy creams and crunchy styling products. This lotion uses avocado, coconut, sweet almond, and olive oils to heal strands and give your hair a voluminous healthy bounce.
Klorane Mousse With Chamomile. Lighter and thinner than a typical mousse, this amazing formula leaves hair smoother, shinier, and brighter after every use. Chamomile is rich in apigenine, a golden pigment that works especially well in blonde hair. No worries though, my darker-haired friends, this mousse brightens hair, but won’t leave you with bleached locks.

Is shorter hair easier to style/take care of? Do you recommend it?
behindthescenesbeauty behindthescenesbeauty Said:

When it comes to short hair, I’m always in favor—less shampoo, less fuss, but often times it takes more creative styling.  You can’t just throw it in a pony and run out of the house, so the type of cut is really important.  But I say no girl has truely lived until they cut off all of their hair.

Happy Saturday!

Peace. Love. and Bobby Pins.

Working at Birchbox involves a strange paradox: I spend my days knee-deep in the latest and greatest beauty products, yet I’m so busy that by necessity, I’ve become a huge fan of product minimalism. Let’s be clear: I still want to look polished. But I don’t want to work for it. Which is why I…
