I have bad hair on a good day. Most days, I have really bad hair. A blowout doesn’t even last overnight for me. All of that changed when I got turned on to Brazilian Keratin treatments. Okay, so they might shorten my lifespan by a few years from the formaldehyde, but this blonde is going down with soft, shiny, manageable locks.
Seriously, anything that helps simplify my hair routine is a welcome addition to my overgrown arsenal of anti-frizz, curl killing and detangling weapons. And no price is too high to pay for good hair on the run.

L’OREAL PROFESSIONEL INOA COLOR CARE ($25-$33)
Becoming addicted to Brazilian Keratin Straightening (the best thing to happen to hair since the flat iron) a few years ago has truly put a crimp in my luxury haircare selection.
