The Best Products for Every Hair Type

OUR CUSTOMERS ASKED:

What are your favorite hair products in the store, and how does your team style their hair?

For Wavy, Thick Hair:

“I use OUAI Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. When plan to wear my hair natural, I run Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream through damp hair  to prevent frizz. Before heat styling, I apply R+Co High Dive Moisture + Shine Cream. After I blow-dry my hair, I love Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Oil or Iles Formula Serum to smooth out my ends and tame any frizz. Since I wash my hair three times a week, in between washes, I keep my hair looking full and fresh with OUAI Dry Shampoo, which I spray at my roots in sections. I comb my hair through after 20-30 seconds once the dry shampoo has settled and absorbed excess oil on my roots. If I want extra volume, I spray R+Co Balloon Volumizing Spray to my crown to give it that extra lift. It also smells amazing!” – Natali, Sales Associate and In-Store Facialist

For Fine, Thin Hair:

“My hair is super fine and straight. I used to have very long hair, but I’d keep up it in a ponytail, so I decided to chop it off years ago. I’m so happy I did since I love my hair short. It allows me to be more playful. I use primarily OUAI and Bumble and Bumble, but I love all the products we have here at C.O. Bigelow. I put a lot of pomades and styling products in my hair to make it look funky and choppy, so I need clarifying shampoos to wash all the products out. I love OUAI Matte Pomade and Bumble and bumble Brilliantine Hair Polish for a slept-in styled look with wispy separation. It’s also good for coarse or dry hair. My favorite hairspray is Oribe Superfine Hairspray because of its strong hold.” – Colleen, Sales Associate

For Tight, Curly Hair:

“My hair type is a 4c. It’s tight and coily, but I still have a curl. I shampoo with Bumble and bumble Invisible Oil Shampoo to restore moisture or Rene Furterer Triphasic Shampoo since my hair is starting to thin. When my hair is damp, I apply R+Co High Dive Moisture + Shine Cream. I massage it in my hair to make sure all my curls are covered. Then I go in with OUAI Leave In Conditioning Spray just to give it extra moisture, shine, and to make sure my curls are saturated. Lastly, I use OUAI Rose Hair and Body Oil with rose extract. You can put it in your hair to give it some glisten and on your body for some shimmer before you leave out for the day.” – Cecelia, Sales Associate

For Loose, Curly Hair:

“For my B curl, I love using the Oribe Moisture & Control Shampoo and Conditioner. Twice a week, I apply the Oribe Moisture & Control Deep Treatment Masque midway through my ends. If I’m not doing the masque, I comb a of Oribe Priming Lotion Leave-In Conditioning Detangler through my hair with the Mason Pearson Rake Comb. I always mix half a handful of the Oribe Curl Gloss for curl definition with Oribe Curl Control Silkening Crème for extra moisture. Lastly, I scrunch my hair with the Iles Formula Haute Performance Turban and let my hair air dry. If it’s cold outside, I use the Harry Josh Ultra Light Pro Dryer with a curl diffuser, while scrunching my locks.” – Lea, Merchandise Manager

For Dry Hair, Oily Scalp:

“Since I have oily scalp, I use Rene Furterer Complexe 5 Treatment before I shower. After leaving it on for ten minutes, I wash and style my hair with my favorite Iles Formula Shampoo, Conditioner, and Serum Treatment. I use the serum as a styling protector and a dry treatment. Before I blow dry my hair, I would put it in from root to tip. After blow drying, I use the serum again on my dry ends. I love Iles Formula because it’s good for all hair types; whether you have oily or dry hair, it works for everybody.” – MyAnh, Sales Associate

For Dry, Damaged, Color Treated Hair:

“I wash my hair with Oribe Gold Lust Shampoo and Conditioner, which makes my hair ultra soft, shiny, and detangled. I squeeze out any excess water and wrap my hair up in the Iles Formula Haute Performance Turban, which I keep on while I do my skincare regimen. After I let down my hair, I run the Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream through the bottom half of my hair, focusing on the ends. After I blow dry, I spray Philip B Weightless Conditioning Water to tame frizz and give my hair extra sheen. Finally, I run Oribe Split End Seal through my ends. On day two, I spray spray my roots with Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle. After 30 seconds, I brush my hair through with the Harry Josh Wooden Paddle Brush, which is ideal for detangling.” – Victoria, Social Media/Marketing Manager

For Silver / Grey Hair:

“I like to constantly change my hair, so it’s almost always color-treated. Right now, it’s a gray/silver color so I’m really into the Oribe Silverati Shampoo, Conditioner, and Illuminating Treatment Masque to repair my color damage, help bring out my silver tones, and prevent brassiness. I always heat protect it before I blow dry with Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer for moisture and UV protection. To finish, I use Philip B Lovin’ Leavin In Conditioner to smooth down any frizz and leave my hair soft and shiny. I only style my hair once every few days so my color doesn’t fade. Since my hair is too short to tie up, I love using Shhhowercap in the shower. It keep my hair dry, keeps the humidity out, and protects my style.” – Jaida, Social Media/Marketing Coordinator

For Short & Styled Hair:

“My hair type is fine and straight, so a lot of my products give me volume and lift. My favorite product post-shower is Bumble and bumble Bb. Glow Bond Building Styler. It helps to seal my cuticle and heal any damage, especially since I process my hair so much. I love R+Co Dallas Thickening Spray. I usually wait for my hair to be halfway dry, then I spray it on my roots and blow dry it upwards. This give me volume without the weight. If my hair is getting a little crazy, I take a dime-sized amount of R+Co Mannequin Paste to mold and shape my hair. I really don’t force the style; I let it go where it wants. To seal the deal, I use R+Co Vicious Strong Hold Flexible Hairspray. It give me the hold without the crunch.” – Jen, Sales Associate
