What Products Do Austin Hairstylists Love For Their Own Use?
As Austin hairstylists at Shag Salon we have access to varieties of hair products, but we’ve all have that handful of products we couldn’t personally live without. Its also a challenge when someone asks “what products are a must have for you?” “what can you not live without?” These particular products we love for our clients, as well as ourselves. We typically use them everyday, until the very last drop is gone. We also suggest you make them part of your arsenal as well.
1. Dry Shampoo
First on this list is dry shampoo, we recommend Kevin Murphy’s Fresh.Air. This is by far one of the best dry shampoos to be made. It removes excess odor and oil, as well as provide volume and texture. Unlike other dry shampoos that leave your hair feeling gritty after applying, Fresh.Air keeps your hair feeling soft and rejuvenated. Check out our article on healthier hairwashing tips for more details. On top of this product already being amazing, it also will give a financial contribution for every can sold to help lower global emissions. It’s a win-win for everyone. If you aren’t one who is into saving the earth, you can at least appreciate whats inside each can, such as Hedera Helix (Ivy) leave/stem extract which is a good source of vitamin C. This dry shampoo also includes Citrus Grandis or grapefruit extract, which helps with shine and cell regeneration.
2. Anti Gravity Hair Spray and Lotion
Our next favorite product is Kevin Murphy’s anti- gravity spray and lotion. The best part about these products are the fact that they are oil free. So no worrying about over use of the product. The anti-gravity lotion is an oil free volumizer and texturizer. It helps achieve that bigger thicker hair, whether you want a beautiful blown out look, or amazing body and curls. It also helps control fly aways and controls shine. What helps this product keep its hold, without loosing any moisture ? Honey, which is a natural emollient, seals in moisture, and helps hair flexibility. The anti-gravity spray is a reinforcer of this lotion. It a non-aerosol spray that adds volume and enhances shine. Even better, this product is infused with lavender for an amazing scent that last. Lavender is also a key ingredient in the spray, that regulates the oil product in hair.
3. Hair Oil
Third on our must have list is Kevin Murphy’s young again oil. This oil is an amazing oil all around. Young again oil is a weightless leave in treatment, designed to have multiple benefits. This oil creates soft beautifully shinny hair by preventing the oxidizing and aging process which everyone’s hair endures. Mainly for application in wet hair, it can also be applied in small amounts in dry and course hair for extra needed moisture. This nutrient rich oil is also a great heat protector. Infused with bur oil, it helps strengthen and increase body.
4. Sealing Spray
What are these products though without something to seal it in? We love our Kevin Murphy Session Spray. This hair spray is a great layering spray. You can have a light hold hairspray, or add more, and have a finishing spray. It contains a UV shield for color protection. What makes this hairspray so great is the styling resins that provide its hold, memory, and resistance to humidity. This means you can brush your hair with out the worry of flakes! Hydrolyzed wheat proteins help the hair with resistance moisture loss and increase shine. It also has a natural form of vitamin C.
5. Help Your Man Look Sharp
We haven”t forgotten about our men though. We do have a must have men’s product that is great for most hair types. The Kevin Murphy Night Rider, which gives a rough matte look with great hold. This hair paste is great for multiple looks, and is paraben free. What makes this product so great besides the smell, is the key ingredients, like bees wax. The bees wax helps you to mold your style before the product sets. Many mens products set to quickly before the finished style is completed.
You may have noticed, every product on this list is a Kevin Murphy Product. Why is this you ask? The products are based on weightless design, which in turn create performance, strength, and longevity in all their products. They are also environmentally aware. They have given notice to how dangerous and serious climate change can be. Their effort to help the environment is seen through their packaging, that is recyclable and biodegradable. They have also made sure every product is cruelty free. This is what we as stylist, at Shag Salon love about Kevin Murphy as well as the fact that, they provided us with the products we must have, all in one product line.
