The weather in New York City can go to extreme temperatures in the summer with long, humid days, and in the winter with the dry freezing air.
We all that taking care and keeping our hair healthy and strong can be quite hard.
So, we asked our friend and one of the top hair experts in NY, Rogerio Cavalcante to give us the secret to the perfect hair.
He told us everything about a fantastic brand called Oribe and pointed out his favorite picks.
Besides being dermatologist-tested, all products are formulated without parabens, sulfates or sodium chloride. It is color and keratin treatment safe. And still, it has UV protection for hair. The best? It’s vegan, cruelty-free and gluten-free.
We simply love it! Take a look below!
To start, a bit about the brand:
Oribe was founded by the Cuban-born American hairstylist, Oribe Canales. He’s very well-known for having worked with the biggest top models like Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista. Moreover, he’s been the artist behind several Fashion Week high-end brands, like Chanel and Thierry Mugler.
They have a vast line of products for different hair and treatments, so you’ll definitely find the right one for you.
- Gold Lust
- Beautiful Color
- Magnificent Volume
- Brilliance & Shine
- Moisture & Control
- Bright Blonde
Rogerio’s top picks:
Today, a hair treatment starts before washing the hair, while in the recent past, you’d apply an intensive care mask after showering, remember? This pre-shampoo called Gold Lust Pre-Shampoo Intensive Treatment is a miracle worker.
Description: Bring damaged locks back to life. This rejuvenating pre-shampoo treatment balm melts into hair, deeply moisturizing and repairing while protecting against harsh aggressors such as washing, styling and pollution. Softness, shine and strength are restored.
- Protects hair from damage and moisture loss
- Intensely hydrates and nourishes dry strands
- Repairs existing damage while reducing future breakage and split ends
- Revitalizes softness, shine, strength and elasticity
- Restores moisture balance without weighing hair down
- Helps to protect against free-radical and environmental damage
From the same Collection, called Gold Lust, he also recommends the Shampoo, Conditioner and Texturizing Spray. The Texturizing Spray to use after a day at the beach and swimming in the ocean, will be sure to restore your hair.
Now, if you’re looking for some amazing volume that leaves your hair light and natural, you can try the Volumista Mist Spray.
Or, you can try the Swept Up Volume Powder. It gives the hair volume and nice body. Just be careful not to use it all the time, since it leaves a bit of residue on the scalp. Use it for special occasions!
One of the coolest and most unique products, that definitely come in handy is the Airbrush. You use it to cover the small unwanted white hairs that shows up. They have it for all different hair colors.
For the very hot and humid NY summer days, you can try the Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray. This spray will certainly keep your hair fresh and “in control”! Be sure to spray it arm distance away.
The Bald d’Or Heat Styling Shield is great to protect the hair before blow drying it or using any type of curlers! Benefits are countless, like:
- Shields fragile strands from thermal damage
- Leaves hair looking ultra-sleek and shiny
- Fights frizz, flyaways and wiry greys
- Makes hair easier to style and manage
- Age-defying formula restores hair’s strength and density
And still, the Gold Hair Nourishing Oil is a great one to have in handy. As they explain:
“This luxuriously light oil absorbs instantly to restore hair to its prime. Infused with a rich blend of jasmine, edelweiss flower, lychee, sandalwood, cassis, bergamot and argan extracts, each protective drop penetrates the hair to deeply condition, strengthen and smooth—imparting intense nourishment and incredible shine. Works wonders on dry, damaged and color-treated hair…Liquid gold.”
If you have curly hair, you might want to try out the Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse. Once again, their description is just perfect:
“Sexy, surfed-in hair is no longer the domain of beachgoers in their tropical climes. Texturize your locks with this hydrating mousse that creates perfectly imperfect separation for that effortlessly tousled look.”
In addition, besides Oribe – that is certainly one of Rogerio’s current favorite brands – he also recommends everyone to check out a brand called R+Co.
“R+Co is a collective of some of the most forward-thinking, rule-bending hairstylists in the business. We are a think tank of top editorial and salon stylists and educators—with a combined century of hairdressing knowledge and experience—and we make sure that we have more than one viewpoint on everything we do.”
…and coolest part:
“Everything is formulated without parabens, sulfates (SLS or SLES), mineral oil and petrolatum. They are all vegetarian, cruelty-free, gluten-free and color-safe.”
Now, you can prepare yourself to face NYC’s harsh approaching winter, and keep in mind what to buy for the next summer!
