When it comes to your barnet, these days it’s all about faking it. Having already exposed the fact that no-one in Hollywood actually sports their natural hair color, here are some examples to ponder. While “bed-head’ is all the rage, god forbid you’d actuallygo straight from pillow to coffee shop with a lopsided do and creases on your face. No, this look takes a lot of engineering. Similarly, “beach-hair”. While actual beach hair resembles some kind of (cute) marine mammal when wet (I’m thinking seal), once it dries the true tangled horror of fizzy fly-away anarchy on a neck is revealed. Not pretty.
Which is why John Masters Organicscreated the Sea Salt Spray with Lavender, which gives you that “fashion model’s day at the beach” vibe rather than the “yes that’s salt in my scalp not dandruff” look. The salt in the Sea Mist gives the hair extra body and wave while essential oil of lavender protects hair and combats drying. Use after shampooing and conditioning with the heavenly scented John Masters Organics Honey and Hibiscus Shampoo and Hair Reconstructor which contains linolenic and hyaluronic acids (the same acids found in young hair) as well as other sumptuous ingredients like Ylang Ylang and Bergamot.
All of John Masters Organics are free of harsh irritating chemicals which John believes are cheap substitutes for organic compounds and natural botanicals. John has very strict guidelines: all essential oils are steam-distilled, not extracted with propylene glycol; plant oils are cold pressed, not heat distilled; and nothing is tested on animals. The end result? Oroducts which are 75 – 100% organic. No wonder his famed NY salon and product line have a legion of celebrity fans like Josh Duhamel, Rosario Dawson and Alicia Silverstone. All the more reason to treat your hair to a day at the beach, without having to endure the inconvenience of sand and melting ice-cream cones.
