Hair Care

By Liz Bekesz

RickyCare, the in-house line from neighborhood mainstay Ricky’s NYC, is always innovative and imaginative. If a solution to your current beauty challenge doesn’t yet exist, RickyCare will likely create the winning answer. This summer I was a big fan of RickyCare’s No-Frizz Comb, which featured actual olive oil baked right into the comb! It’s old and new design and technology working together in beautiful, efficient harmony. Perfect post-pool or post-shower and great to-go, No-Frizz combs glide through hair with the greatest of ease, distributing micro-sized particles to fill in the hair shaft and deliver just the perfect amount of sleek…without the excessive slick. The combs also create a smoother, more seamless hair shaft surface and help promote faster drying time.

New addition RickyCare Argan+ Combs & Brushes are also infused with oil; in this case, richly hydrating Argan Oil is used. High in Vitamin E, Argan oil also contains Omega 3 and Omega 9 unsaturated fatty acids, to help infuse strands with a glowing sheen. I’m loving the Argan+ Paddle Brush, which leaves my waves soft and lustrous, yet still bouncy. NOTE: This one is best for already-dried hair, and is not recommended for blow-drying.

Also cute and creative, and in the “necessary-though-you-never-knew-it-before” category: Rickycare No-Crease Bow Clips. Mine are pastel-hued and shaped like little ribbons. Simple yet clever, these clips are specially designed to keep hair out of your face (while you do your make-up, get dressed, etc.) without leaving behind that funny little tell-tale crease! Behind-the-scenes make-up artists and hairstylists are already big backstage fans; we think you’ll applaud them in the comfort of your own home, too.

Available at and at Ricky’s NYC store locations.
