Fictionary is a column showcasing beauty-related words that don’t exist, but should.
I recently took part in a focus group about hair care and during the session, I figured out the major driver for my personal shampoo and conditioner preferences. For the full review and Fictionary definition, read on…
For me, it’s all about whether the combo does half of my styling work for me in the shower–be it hydration, volume, or curl definition. In short, I tend to favor products that do some of the styling product work for me in-shower. When I emerge from the shower, I not only want to be fresh and clean, I also want to be halfway there (livin’ on a prayer) from a styling perspective.
One of my favorite drugstore dazzlers of late that does exactly that? L’Oreal EverSleek Smoothing System (I prefer the Intense iteration). It’s sulfate-free, silicone-free and paraben-free. I also heard wind that it’s created with the same technology as my beloved PureOlogy, so it’s essentially PureOlogy at a purer price-point, perhaps sans a few more expensive ingredients. It really serves to improve hair’s texture, keeping it glossy and controlled all day, in all weather conditions. Also? It’s one of the few shampoo/conditioner combos I find extends my blow-out. I feel less oily on day 2 (when I typically wash my hair) than with this situation. You’ll want to invest in the L’Oreal EverSleek Frizz-taming Cream Serum as well. L’Oreal has outdone themselves this time. Score a tube of the L’Oreal EverSleek Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner at $7 a tube at your local drugstore.
