Clearly, Lauren Conrad has picked up where Marcia Brady left off as a shiny, healthy hair icon (if nothing else). Her mile-long mane just embodies everything about California-style wellness, and this pic alone makes me want to grab the nearest scissors, lop off my dead ends, or (and this is the saner option), race to the hair-care aisle for the strongest treatments on the market. Here, my picks for the products that should be kept in your hair rehab kit:
Aussie Three Minute Hair Miracle. It takes a lot of chutzpah for a company to promise a miracle, let alone in minutes. But because this deep-conditioning treatment really does make your hair soft in a flash, I'm sure the head honchos go to sleep with a clear conscience.
Infusium 23 Conditioners. This stuff is OLD SCHOOL, but there's a reason it's been around so long: It works. In the '80s, a nightly douse of Infusium 23 conditioner helped me smooth out my perm in the '80s, in the '90s it rescued my flat-ironed mess, and today, it still helps quench my frazzled ends until I make that damn haircut appointment already.
Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil Serum. A few drops of this rubbed between the palms and worked into the hair (even by the roots!) leaves it with weightless, greaseless, lustrous shine. What Lemon Pledge is to your dining room table, Jasmine Oil Serum is to your driest, most worn-out style.
Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment. Use in case of emergency! This nutty, waxy leave-on is for when you really can't go another day with that mop on your head. (You know what I'm talking about.) Apply a smidge on your ends only for about 15 minutes, and then wash it out. Promise me you'll use it sparingly, because this stuff doesn't rinse out easily. My first time, I slathered it on root to tip because I was so in love with the scent. Four shampoos later, I was still regretting this move. I was a grease monkey. But a soft grease monkey.Related Links from Allure:
