Gift Guide: Hair

For the guys in your life who do a double take when they pass a mirror to make sure each strand is in their place, we’ve curated a gift guide that would satiate even the most selective of “hair” guys.

When creating this list, we considered the most luxurious products with an edge to stand out.

Take Dyson’s revolutionary hair dryer that is such a feat of technology from the legendary vacuum manufacturer that even electronics stores are stocking it. What makes it unique? Intelligent heat control that measures the temperature 20 times a second to prevent damage. A powerful, high speed motor that moves over 13 liters of air every second for accelerated drying. Air multiplier technology that amplifies the air by 3x. Smart engineering that uses a digital motor that is 6x faster, 1/3 the weight and 1/2 the size of other motors that also allows for a comfortable weight distribution.

On the other hand for hair that is dried out from heat styling or chemical processing (the Lucky Blue Smith bleach blonde trend is not doing hair any favors), R+Co Palm Springs Pre-Shampoo Treatment Mask is that rich cocktail of plant oils, butters, and extracts that will bring strands back to life. While we’re discussing Lucky Blue Smith’s hair, for effortless beach hair, try Herbivore Botanical’s Sea Mist formulated with the same salinity as Pacific Ocean saltwater to give hair beachy waves and texture.

With all this product, Grown Alchemist’s Volumising Shampoo and Conditioner set is perfect for daily cleansing and care with biotin for hair growth, althea extract that creates volume, and antioxidants that strengthen hair and scalp.

For added support, we treat hair like we treat skin – and add in serums! Any guy with seriously good hair knows the secret is to start with a healthy scalp and Sachajuan’s Scalp Treatment  is an award winning intensive treatment that soothes irritated scalp and removes dandruff. Menthol, salicylic acid, and anti-bacterial essential oils rid the scalp of flakes and takes care of the bad bacteria that can lead to over-zealous yeast. Basically consider this a reset button for irritated and out of balance scalp.

Making our way to the hair, we use two serums. First is David Mallett’s Hair Serum which is for the ends of hair. It keeps dryness, split ends and frizz at bay and 3-4 drops (or 1 full pump) is all that is needed. The serum is an oil texture but fear not, the oil is quick absorbing and will not feel heavy, especially when applied onto wet hair.

Reverie’s Cake is an organic anti-aging growth serum that we’ve come to love. It’s a leave in treatment that is best applied after washing in the evening to let the good stuff soak in overnight. This is a serum texture and suitable for both hair and scalp. The ingredients include apple stem cells and plant proteins that rejuvenate hair follicles while rosewater helps to hydrate. The serum smells amazing due to organic essential oils but more so, we love it because the formula is so concentrated with restorative actives for hair and scalp.

    Been contemplating Reverie’s Cake or Milk, any help?

    • Get both! Half joking – Cake is a scalp treatment and Milk is a hair treatment so getting both won’t hurt but if one is more of a priority.. it should be clear which to go for
