Summer wreaks havoc on our strands, and deep winter with it’s cold, wind, and overheated indoor spaces, isn’t going to be any better. So, use fall as a rehab for your hair. The weather isn’t extreme, and you can use the elements to your advantage. During your rehab, use l’Occitane’s new Aromachologie collection, formulated with essential oils and naturally derived ingredients to soothe not only the hair but your senses as well. The collection includes:
- Repairing Smoothing Gloss($24): The first Aromachologie Repairing product to offer styling and smoothing benefits, this conditioning gloss protects against overdrying, heat damage and breakage, smoothing and straightening hair for a shiny finish. Essential oils of angelica, lavender, geranium, ylang ylang and sweet orange nourish as corn starch provides a smoothing effect and strawberry alpha-hydroxyacids increase shine. Apply to the lengths of wet hair to protect, smooth and control; apply to ends of dry hair to smooth and define curls. The gloss leaves hair manageable, smoothed, deeply repaired and ultra-glossy.
- Soothing Concentrated Mask ($24): This purifying, moisturizing mask soothes and protects sensitive scalps, easing irritation and rehydrating. Relaxing essential oils of chamomile, mandarin, cedar, basil and lemongrass work with allantoin and alpha bisabosol to calm the scalp as salicylic acid purifies and panthenol moisturizes. The formula restores skin’s natural defenses against damaging environmental stresses, improving scalp barrier function. While hair is damp, massage the mask onto the scalp in sections to relieve tension and activate microcirculation for healthier hair. Apply the Soothing Conditioner to ends simultaneously if desired.
- New Volumizing Shampoo ($18): This silicone-free shampoo weightlessly restores hair’s volume and shine, effectively strengthening and thickening. A five essential oil complex of artemisia, petit grain, sweet orange, rosemary and palmarosa replenishes and conditions hair as corn starch accentuates volume at the root, and a foaming vegetable base creates space between hair to enhance the volume effect.
- Volumizing Conditioner ($18): L’OCCITANE’s five essential oil complex of artemisia, petit grain, sweet orange, rosemary and palmarosa nourishes hair as glycerin moisturizes the scalp and panthenol softens. The conditioner leaves hair stronger, thicker, volumized and easy to detangle. Free from silicone, the formula won’t weigh hair down.
