The perfect shampoo/conditioner duo is an essential ingredient for everyone's hair routine, but sometimes you need a little icing for your cake! So to follow up part one of our 'These Are A Few Of Our Favorite Things' blog post from last week, we are back to share with you a few of our favorite styling products and tools!
When it comes to styling products, hands down the most popular office favorite is Morrocanoil Treatment. This versatile formula is a jack of all trades, acting torepair damage, speed up drying time, restore shine, and replenish antioxidants to protect against heat, sun, and environmental damage. It can be used on its own or can be mixed in with other products, such as conditioner or color treatment. Brittany and Melanie opt for Moroccanoil Treatment Light to nourrish their delicate blonde strands. Brittany uses it as both a heat protectant and a styling product, explaining, “I don’t need any other hair products because it prevents frizz when I wear my hair straight, and holds my shape when I wear it curly. Plus, it keeps my hair shiny and smooth”. Melanie calls it her “absolute miracle working product”, embracing its ability to repair sun and pool damage in the summer. Check out this stylist video for a few quick tips on how to work this office fave into your own hair routine.
You still have nightmares remembering it… that time you used the wrong hairspray and your hair turned into a hard, immovable mass of gunk that only Cindy Lou Who could possibly pull off. But alas, we are here to show you that not all hairspray is evil in a can. In fact, there are a few we even love!
Janell swears by Kenra’s “Volume Spray 25” hairspray. Its incredibly strong formula manages to hold hair all day, even in brutal summer humidity, without leaving feeling sticky. And the “addicting” smell of this volumizing finishing spray leaves no question as to why Stylist Choice Awards has voted it their “Favorite Hairspray” for four consequtive years.
Melanie, a self-admitted finishing product nitpicker, has found her knight in shining armor in Neuma’s InControl Medium hairspray. It’s acclaimed ”flexible hold” manages to keep her hair in place all day long without sacrificing softness and touchability. And unlike so many others in the market, this hairspray has a light scent that won’t overpower and leave your nose screaming for fresh air.
Neuma's Style Texturizer and Tangle Me Free Conditioning Spray are also popular office essentials at MyBFH. As an awesome bonus, Neuma focuses on simultaneously ensuring the health of both your hair and our Earth, so all of great products are naturally derived and environmentally friendly. Bottom line: We are nuts for Neuma!!
After years of frustration with cheap knock-offs, Danielle and Janell were introduced to Solano’s 1-inch “Sleekheat 450” flat iron at a hair show. It was love at first sight, or should I say, use. Despite their very different hair types, both ladies were instantly addicted to the miracle straightener and bought it on the spot, throwing away the heaps of dissapointing others they had acquired over the years. Janell loves the Sleekheat 450 for its ability to heat up instantly and the perfection with which its plates meet up, ensuring that it never pulls her hair or pinches to give inconsistent results. Danielle simply can't get over how smooth and shiny and flyaway-free it leaves her hair. Although it does carry a heftier price tag than many of its competitors, this Solano flat iron is so worth it; both Janell and Danielle proclaim it the absolute best on the market, promising it will delivering silky straight hair worthy of the red carpet.
