In­no­va­tions in hair

Fashion (Canada) - - Fix -


PANTENE Air­spray ($5) is the first al­co­hol-free aerosol hair­spray. Here’s why that mat­ters: “Typ­i­cally wa­ter­based hair­sprays are in pumps and the droplets are really big,” says Pantene prin­ci­pal sci­en­tist Rolanda Wilk­er­son, so you can only ap­ply a small amount or the hair be­comes really wet. “We changed the ac­tu­a­tor so the wa­ter mist is very fine.” The ab­sence of al­co­hol also means the for­mula doesn’t have to be masked with fra­grance, so your flat­mate won’t be en­gulfed by a pun­gent cloud.


When celebrity hair­styl­ist Andy Le­compte wants tex­tured waves, he hits the pantry. “I’ve been us­ing sugar wa­ter in hair for years,” he says, his voice hoarse from at­tend­ing late-night re­hearsals with Madonna and spend­ing the morn­ing field­ing ques­tions about Mi­ley’s hair at the 2015 VMAs. The con­coc­tion works like a beach spray, says Le­compte, but de­liv­ers more shine and soft­ness. WELLA PRO­FES­SION­ALS Eimi Sugar Lift ($20) saves him—and us—the has­sle of making the sim­ple syrup at home.


On the heels of the cow­ash­ing craze (sham­poo­ing with con­di­tioner) comes a new trend: re­verse wash­ing. TRESEMMÉ’s Beauty-Full Vol­ume Pre-wash Con­di­tioner and Sham­poo ($9 each) make the case for switch­ing the or­der of oper­a­tions in the shower, de­liv­er­ing hy­dra­tion to fine-haired types with­out weigh­ing down strands.
