Well, I've just been hit with beauty blogger karma after writing that I'm low maintenance with my hair. I should have known it was coming. In the past few months I've fallen in love with several new products and gadgets for hair, and maybe they're just a wee bit spendier than the $3 per gallon Tresemme conditioner I used for the last decade. Plus, I recently had my hair dyed (barely) for the first time in my life, which means that I've had to change a few things in my routine to protect the color.
Klorane is a brand I've been drawn to for a while - I do tend to favor "botanical" haircare, and the line's appealing packaging and reasonable price point were the icing on the cake. During my semester abroad I picked up a couple of things to try, and I've been impressed with both of them.
Although it's not advertised as such, the Huile de Mangue is really more of a dry oil or a thin serum. It's very lightweight; perfect for taming frizz and adding shine without weighing down your tresses. The expected mango scent is perfectly natural and fruity but not overpowering. I also appreciate the spray nozzle, which means that you don't have to use your hands for application if you can't spare the time to wash them (seriously, the number of things that I've dropped right after using hair serums is ridiculous). One or two spritzes is perfect for my long hair, so I imagine my giant bottle of the stuff will last for ages.
