Hair Care

By Liz Bekesz

As if Junior High isn’t already awkward enough, my time in seventh and eighth grade coincided with the last gasps of the Big Hair movement. We didn’t just wear hairspray, we took it to go. Literally. Tucked within our fringed and bedazzled purses, the weapon of choice was the stiffest, toughest, hardest spray shellac money could buy. Super, Mega, Maximum, Ultra, Supreme, Extreme: no hold was too much or too strong for bangs that defied all planetary gravity laws and climbed vertically, unflinchingly. We were not satisfied until our hair was crunchy and defiant, alert and upright. Soft, pliable hair that felt natural and actually moved felt wrong and unfinished.

Now, some years older and wiser, I know better.

So does Sally Hershberger. Known for her trendsetting vision and innovative techniques, Hershberger is one of the world’s most highly sought-after and influential hairstylists. In addition to three bi-coastal salons, Hershberger has her own line of luxury hair products (they happen to retail at non-luxe, affordable prices). Sally Hershberger Professional Hair Care Super Keratin Spray and Soft Touch Shaping Cream are two new additions to her growing product family. Both deliver “Hyper Hydration,” helping to replenish, restore, and revitalize dry, unruly, and color-treated hair.

It doesn’t get much easier than Sally Hershberger Professional Hair Care Super Keratin Spray. This lightweight leave-in won’t weigh you down, so it’s suitable for all locks, from fine-to-thick. Just mist onto damp hair and comb through from root to tip for an instant blast of intense moisture and protection. Super Keratin Spray seals split ends and protects hair from the rigors of harsh heat and thermal styling. Finish with Sally Hershberger Professional Hair Care Soft Touch Shaping Cream: squeeze a dab into palms and lightly run hands through dry hair, shaping your style as you go. This creamy, whipped blend of three butters (Macadamia Nut Butter, Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter) smoothes and nourishes hair, replenishing and locking in moisture. Instantly, hair is quenched: softer, smoother, and less prone to breakage. It is more pliable and lustrous (less frizzy) which in the end, makes for easier-to-style hair – no matter what you decide to do with it.
