In today’s economy we’re all about the look for less or cheap versus chic, but what about the little indulgences that can make you feel like a million bucks when you’ve only got fifty to spare? If you’re looking for a little extravagance we found two new hair care collections that fit the bill.
One step into a MALIN+GOETZ boutique and you know you’re not just in any apothecary. The latest introductions to their popular hair care collection include fresh notes of peppermint, cilantro and sage. Two new “problem/solution” shampoos and a mask have been added to the collection as well.
The new MALIN+GOETZ moisturizing shampoo is a great way to kick off your spring hair routine and add moisture lost from over-styling and harsh winter weather. With .25% panthenol, this intensive treatment coats and lubricates hair. Use daily on extremely damaged hair or substitute as your shampoo once a week to maintain moisture.
One whiff of the MALIN+GOETZ intensive hair mask and we were hooked. Use this five minute mask once a week (or once a month if you’re looking to make it last while still reaping benefits) to replenish hair and repair damage without residual residue build-up.
If you can’t afford a trip to Paris, why not do the next best thing and indulge in Parisian hair care? CARITA Paris is re-launching its core hair care line and introducing Haute Beaute Cheveu, featuring their exclusive “Material Wealth Complex.” Now that’s living vicariously through your shampoo!
The new lineup of eleven products, available in May, will feature Daily, Purifying, Nutri-Repairing and Intense Color Shampoos, featuring exotic ingredients such as Moringa Oleifera (highly nutritious vegetable tree extract), Jojoba oil, rice milk and wheat micro protein. Their new Purifying, Nutri-Repairing and Intense Color Masks come in impressive forms such as a light mousse, whipped balm and melting crea and are specially formulated with Nettle Cellulose, Mango Butter Extract and Cupuacu Butter in addition to a slew of other ingredients to correct and repair damaged hair. Use sparingly as these treatments are effective yet pricey. Finally, they’ve rounded out the collection to include a Daily Protective Cream, Revitalizing Scrub for the Scalp, Caritrix (a scalp toner) and Hair Loss Care (a five week intensive scalp treatment).
