With winter’s chill diminishing and spring practically knocking at the door for most of us, the heat and humidity of last summer will soon be but a distant memory. But it’s those steamy days that I have to thank for a hair product that I’ve continued to use as seasons change. Well, actually, I should thank my hairstylist. She’s the one who tactfully pointed out (last summer) that my hair could use some help and then proceeded to try out a new product on my hair.
The product she used was Earthly Body Marrakesh Kahm Daily Smoothing Treatment ($24.50). This is a hair care line featuring argan oil from Morocco and hemp oil – excluding mineral oils, dyes, sulfates, propylene glycol, phthalates or parabens. They are also 100% vegan, drug and cruelty free. The Kahm Smoothing Treatment is marketed to create the “Brazilian straight look” using argan oil, hemp and vegetable proteins to mimic keratin, without the downsides of having a chemical treatment to straighten your hair. Also there’s no commitment, as this product rinses completely out in one wash.
Although I keep my hair relatively short (between 2" to 3" on top), there have been days that taming it were hopeless. My hair is slightly coarse with a bit of wave that can quickly go from trendy tousled to a disheveled mess without some type of styling products. I found this is a smoothing treatment that really works to subdue errant waves and provide frizz control even on the most humid days. And it is easy to use: I applied a small nickel-size amount (a little bit goes a long way) to towel-dried hair and then used a blow dryer to style (sometimes not even completely drying the hair). The product has a milky consistency that doesn’t leave any residue or greasy feel and a very light sort of sandalwood fragrance.
For me, the end result is hair that looks much better in every season – soft with a bit of healthy shine and best of all, no frizz!
