We were all born with different hair textures, so it's only normal for each one of us to have different hair care routines. But, reading reviews and knowing what other people think of the products you've been eyeing makes purchasing decisions easier. Read on to see the raving testimonials of Cosmo girls on their ride-or-die hair care picks.
Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue in Ultimate Straight
"I love this product because it tames my frizzy hair without the greasy feeling. Huge plus: My hair smells good until nighttime." - Cielo Calzado, dry and frizzy hair
Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue in Ultimate Straight, Robinsons Department store
Yves Rocher Rinsing Vinegar
"I have bleached and colored hair, so I always need to use conditioner every time I wash my tresses. But since I have the tendency to have a greasy scalp, I make sure that I use rinsing vinegar before my last rinse. This ensures that I've left no product residue, and it also has salicylic acid that prevents dandruff. I simply cannot live without it. I've been a hoarder for years!" - Ira Nopuente, colored and bleached hair
Yves Rocher Rinsing Vinegar, P495, SM Southmall
Kérastase Nutritive Lait Vital Conditioner
"I color my hair often and blow dry it almost every day. My hair got really coarse/damaged, and this product helped me make it more manageable. I just like how it feels on my hair." - Krizelle Macam, colored hair
Kérastase Nutritive Lait Vital Conditioner, P1,900, HairMNL
Not Your Mother’s Love, Love For Hue Color Care UV Protectant
"Early this year when I had my hair colored to a lighter shade I decided to FINALLY take care of it. Meaning, I finally used products to keep my hair (and its new color) healthier than ever. After switching to sulfate-free shampoo and conditioners, I wanted to try out a leave-in product to manage my waves and to TRY to keep my hair from damage.
"When I got my hands on this product, I religiously sprayed it on my hair after every shower or when it was dry and my hair needed a 'boost.' I noticed the changes in my hair a few weeks after using it. It looked and felt healthier than it did compared to when my hair didn’t have color! My waves weren’t unruly, there was a noticeable decrease in the frizz, my hair was shiny, and I actually started wearing my hair down (something I’d rarely do 'cos of my frizzy waves). I love ittttt! It really is the best thing for my hair." - Cindy Lopez, curly hair
Not Your Mother’s Love Love For Hue Color Care UV Protectant, P695, Beauty Bar
Wella System Professional Luxe Oil Reconstructive Elixir
"I’ve used a number of hair oils and serums in my life and none have been, are, and will be as good as the Wella Luxe Oil. It’s a lightweight oil that leaves my tresses super smooth, soft, shiny, and no matter how much I apply during the day or night, it never looks and feels greasy. Another great thing about the Luxe Oil? It doesn’t break my skin out!
"I haven’t been using it religiously anymore because I’m finishing my other hair oils and serums first, but I’m serious when I say this: Not a day goes by that I don’t miss it. It’s THAT good." - Tisha Caedo, chemically straightened hair
Wella System Professional Luxe Oil Reconstructive Elixir, P1,500/100ml, La Provence
Human Nature Moisturizing Conditioner and Hair Revival Coco Mask
Since I'm on the CG (curly girl) method, I started using all Human Nature products. Yun kasi yung walang silicone and parabens because they're bad for curls. I turn to Human Nature Moisturizing Conditioner for my co-wash. I don't use shampoo everyday, if i do, I use Human Nature Hair Revival Coco Mask. This works like magic. as in MAGIC. My hair is instantly bouncy after the wash. - Paula Abjelina-Dela Cuesta, curly hair
