I love skin and hair oils. Oils used to have a bad name until a few years back, but for me – going from the desert to humid New England in a month – travel has made my skin and hair do all kinds of wonky things (I nearly forgot all about humidity frizz.) When Rich Hair Care’s golden bottle showed up last week I was thrilled: dry desert hair meets airplane cabin and lands in seacoast humidity is taking its toll.
This little French marvel has been a Tatler Beauty Award winner for the past two years and with good reason: a few drops of this highly-concentrated elixir is all I needed to tame that humid-flyaway/salt air hair while giving it shine for days. It doubles as a leave-in treatment, which works beautifully – no stringy or greasy locks, just incredible softness and glistening, smooth hair. (I mixed some into a hair mask as well which gives it a great boost.) I’ll also rub a bit into my cuticles to make ’em super-soft. Along with Argan Oil, sweet almond and olea europaea (olive) are in the mix, which all add up to protecting color while strengthening and conditioning.
