11 New Hair Collections For The Product Junkie In You
The natural hair movement, naturally, gave rise to the product junkie with women going through extensive trial-and-error periods to find creams, custards, and conditioners that would work well for their curls. But now, we’re just spoiled. Yes, there are some of us who are still trying to figure out just the right concoction to let our hair live its best life — natural or straight — but the rest of us just like to see what’s new in the market and whether it could possibly be better than what’s already working for us.
There’s no judgment here; we get it. That’s why we’ve put together this list of new hair product launches so you know exactly what brands and lines to put on your radar, if they aren’t already. There’s no reason to be shy when it comes to experimenting with new products, there’s a whole world of options out there for you to explore.
The Kim Kimble Silk Hair Collection
Many a celebrity has trusted her strands to the wonderful Kim Kimble, and if soft, frizz-free hair is one of your #HairGoals for 2017, trust Kim’s new Silk Hair Collection to get the job done. Made for all textures, the line, which just debuted on HSN December 29, includes a shampoo and conditioner “infused with an herbal melange and botanical oils that penetrate deep into the hair cuticles and scalp to revive dry, frazzled hair,” as well as a leave-in conditioner, formulated with “silk proteins to rejuvenate over-processed hair, smooth hair cuticles, and reduce breakage and split ends.”
And for those women who love a good blowout, consider the Silk Vapor Iron from the line which dispenses argon oil as you use run it over your hair for optimal smooth and shine.
If your fitness goals and hair goals are at odds, this line is calling you. Crafted with a blend of Moroccan Rhassoul Clay, Aloe Juice and Cactus Flower, this sulfate-free shampoo, conditioner, and softening hair mask trio draws out sweat and impurities while simultaneously restoring essential moisture to your strands and adding softness. Three-to-five minutes is all the mask needs to work its magic, or you can sit under a hooded dryer for 10-15 minutes for even deeper conditioning.
Carol’s Daughter has more than one new line of products and we’re already in love with this one designed to take care of all of your natural styling needs. The “wash-n-go” leave-in will have you out the door with defined, frizz-free strands in no time, and if your twist outs never seem to hold shape or shine, give this curl twisting custard and style control gel a try. We did and we loved the finished product! Check out the review here.
Dry, itchy scalp is something a lot of women don’t like to talk about, and the resulting dandruff is definitely something we definitely don’t like to see, but you don’t have to suffer the discomfort and embarrassment of your scalp issues for much longer thanks to Canviiy. The brand is behind the revolutionary serum ScalpBliss, which is enriched with a powerful blend of natural botanicals like aloe vera, lavender, witch hazel, manuka honey, jojoba and peppermint oil to calm and cool your scalp. Simply dip the swab into one of the individual serum cups and gently massage a small amount into the scalp as needed. You can use this whether your hair is natural, dyed, braided, in an updo, or you have extensions.
Hairfinity has branched out from its signature hair vitamins in a major way, launching a full line of restorative products for its loyal customers. We already told you about the booster supplements, but that’s not all that’s new with Hairfinity. The brand now offers a Gentle Cleanse Shampoo, Balanced Moisture Conditioner, Strengthening Amino Masque and Nourishing Botanical Oil to help you maintain the healthy hair you achieved with their vitamins. Each product promises to repair, restore, and refresh hair by leaving it more manageable and increasing its strength and elasticity.
And because we all know healthy edges are hard to come by, Hairfinity created a targeted Edge Serum formulated with hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed wheat protein, peptides, and white tea and grapeseed extracts to help revitalize this weak, often overworked area of our hair.
Never heard of clumping before? It’s a cleansing and conditioning routine used for ultimate curl definition, and Dark and Lovely promises that with their new anti-shrinkage clay cleanser and oil-infused cream gel you’ll achieve the shapely, elongated, defined curls you’ve always wanted without the hassle — or frizz.
Looking to add a little more color to your mane but hair dye horror stories have you second guessing? Take the plunge with this Color Gloss Semi-Permanent Hair Color, another new offering from Dark and Lovely. The great thing about this color créme is that it doesn’t contain ammonia but it is formulated with shea butter, coconut oil, and pomegranate to condition and prevent the damage hair color can do if you don’t properly protect hair from breakage.
Moisture is forever a struggle with Black hair and if you think you’ve tried every oil under the sun to no avail, might we suggest Abyssinia Oil by way of Klorane’s new Ultra-Nourishing line? Kinky-curly hair is already at a disadvantage due to its natural curved hair shaft which limits the distribution of sebum, resulting in a damaged hydrolipidic film — i.e. dry scalp and hair. What Abyssinia Oil does is compensate for the lipid deficiencies of curly hair with its high level of erucic acid which lends itself to coating and protecting hair. The end result with this shampoo and deep conditioning mask is hair that’s restructured with essential fatty acids, and as a result, softer, stronger, more supple, and easier to style. Starting March of this year you can buy this line at Klorane.com, Sephora.com, and Ulta.com.
The Vanity Box is known for its premium virgin hair, but now the brand has a line of products to keep your natural hair in optimal condition whether you’re wearing weave or not. You can choose between a Body Boost Dry Shampoo or traditional Rescue Me! Shampoo depending on your hair’s needs — volume or moisture. There’s also the Intense Repair CPR Conditioner to hydrate hair, a Moisture to the Max leave-in that says it all, and a Curl Soufflé that’s perfect for extensions.
If you tend to stick with brands that are tried and true, you’ll be thoroughly impressed with Pantene’s new Gold Series line co-created by African American scientists, stylists, and dermatologists for women with relaxed, natural, and transitioning hair. As you can see from the number of products included, Pantene has pretty much covered every need from washing and conditioning to detangling and styling. We had the chance to give these new options a test drive and we’re already in love with the deep-hydrating co-wash, curl-defining pudding (which is the perfect mix of cream and gel for a strong hold that’s not dry), and the intense hydrating oil. All items are infused with argan oil so rest assured your strands will indeed receive a moisture boost.
Dove just launched an entire line of Dermacare Scalp shampoos and conditioners, but we’re always excited about the prospect of shortening the process on wash day, which is why we’re shouting out this 2 n 1 shampoo and conditioner that you can use like a co-wash every day. The line promises not to strip hair of its moisture as it relieves scalp irritation and leaves hair flake free. All options also leave hair pH balanced. Choose from the Pure Daily Care option above which has a fresh rosemary scent that smells amazing, the Invigorating Mint 2 in 1 option formulated with spearmint, or the Dryness and Itch Relief Shampoo and Conditioner which hydrates dry scalp via coconut and shea butter.
