When it comes to being Insta-Hair-Famous, Los Angeles-based Kristin Ess is the queen. Or maybe we should say, KWEEN. Either way, the flame-haired genius is the one behind the manes of Lauren Conrad, Lucy Hale, and Halle Berry, just to name a few. And while we were trying to keep up with Lucy’s ever-changing looks, Kristin Ess was coming up with a new product line, and all I have to say is: It. Is. Game changing. Of course the second I saw it’s release (exclusively sold at Target, in stores and online.), I rushed to my laptop to place my order, and I haven't looked back since. There’s a lot I have to say about how much I am obsessed with this line, but I will start you with the facts.
Ess created this simple, yet effective line with Zip-Up Technology, made to “zip up” split ends. It’s sulfate free, color-safe, and designed to smooth the appearance of roughness on the hair. And while it does provide moisture to the hair, it isn’t heavy, and it lathers very easily.
As for my opinion, I’m in love. Finally, a lightweight, yet moisturizing answer in hair care. And this is just the shampoo I’m talking about. To follow up the shampoo, Kristin has given us the choice between a conditioner, and a mask. I personally am a thick, curly-haired kind of gal, so naturally, I went for the mask.
As far as styling goes, I always use the Leave -In Conditioner, fresh out of the shower on wet hair, to protect it from heat and help smooth away frizz. On curly days, I like to use the Curl Defining Creme, put it in a braid, and after its dried I’m left with shiny curls, and a consistent curl pattern. If I’ve curled my hair, I like to use the Beach Waves Spray, which is a staple for that lived-in, beauty look. Finally, the holy grail of hair products: Dry Shampoo. Need I say more? It gets me through my week without having to put forth serious effort to my hair.
So listen, ladies. I get it…who has the time to go get a blow out before work or class twice a week? If you do, good for you! For the rest of us, we have Kristin Ess’s hair care collection to get us through to the good hair days. It’s a simple, smart, and innovative line, perfect for the girl on the go. And let's be honest, that’s all of us. Check out some tutorials on how to use the products here
