Lately, I feel like the Goldilocks of hair styling products. Some leave my hair shiny but too flat, others make it feeling too stiff and straw-like. Some products hold such promise: They smell great but work horribly (or vice-versa), they are either too expensive, too oily, too heavy…I think you get the idea.
So I finally, I feel as if I found a hair product that’s JUST RIGHT. In fact, it’s a godsend and it makes my hair look and feel fabulous every single time. KeraBalm ($28, made by Keratin Complex) is a BB cream for your hair that primes, protects and perfects. I have long, color-treated hair so finding something that really works is such a treat.
This multi-benefit balm contains Apple Stem Cell Extract (to rejuvenate and renew) and Argan oil (to restore shine, softness and manageability) and I rarely rave about styling products but this most worthy of a crown. I love how it fights frizz and leaves my locks super-shiny. The lightweight formula forms a weightless protective barrier around the hair shaft to repel humidity. It’s ultra-hydrating and quite frankly–my hero hair product.
