Here at Haute Talk, we love our beauty products — so much so that we want to share a hand-picked list of our favorites with you once a week, every week. Our inaugural Bespoke Beauty round-up this week is the best hydrating hair care products that will rescue your dry, brittle winter tresses without weighing them down so they look and feel as flawless as awards-season Jared Leto’s locks (because let’s be honest, we all have hair-envy right now).
Shampoo: Redken Clear Moisture Shampoo
When it comes to a shampoo that delivers any sort of moisturizing benefits, there’s a fine line between too much and not enough. Well, this shampoo — one of Redken’s top-rated products — balances that line beautifully with its Micro-Moisture Complex of cuticle-smoothing apricot oil, hair shaft-penetrating glucosamine and moisture-sealing glycerin that leaves the hair feeling hydrated and soft without the extra weight.
The 10.1 oz bottle is available at Ulta for $14.50.
Conditioner: Van Thomas Concepts Christine Reconstructive Conditioner
While this salon-quality line is relatively new to the market, its conditioning power is downright miraculous. After just one use, the conditioner’s reconstructive all-star cast of keratin protein, silk protein and jojoba oil restores even the most damaged hair to near perfection and doesn’t leave a silicone residue, nor does it make your hair greasy. Plus, the moisture lasts for days, so you don’t have to condition as often (and cutting down on shower time is always good).
The 12 oz bottle is available at VanThomasConcepts.com for $32.
Deep Conditioning Treatment: Ojon Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Treatment Plus
Ojon’s Damage Reverse is considered one of the gold standards in leave-in treatments because it really does repair your hair dramatically after just one wash-out — but it tends to get a bad rap for its strong smell. Cue the Hair Treatment Plus, a new double-filtered formula with the same powerful Ojon nut oil (and a new addition of the red pulp from the Ojon nut for next-level conditioning), but without the overpowering smell. Sensitive noses rejoice!
The 1.5 oz tub is available at Sephora for $19.50.
Leave-In Conditoner: Nexxus Hydra Light Leave-In Conditioning Foam
The ingredients of this leave-in are truly a match made in heaven. It’s like Nexxus answered all of our winter hair prayers when they added hyper-conditioning glycerin and hydrogenated coconut oil but didn’t neglect our desire for volume in the winter, so they threw in deep sea minerals and a pinch of sea salt for good measure. Not only is your hair super soft, but it also has a bit of bounce as well, making it the perfect everyday leave-in conditioner. Oh, and did we mention it smells phenomenal?
The 5.5 oz bottle is available at Target for $12.79.
Styling Serum: Kerastase Nutritive Serum Oleo-Relax
And finally, the actual superpower behind Jared Leto’s shiny, lush locks: Kerastase’s Oleo-Relax serum. A best-seller for a reason, the serum is packed with shorea and palm oils to help your hair stay sleek and tangle-free while cationic polymers keep strands hydrated and healthier-looking almost instantly. Bonus: The gentle silicones tame staticky hair but are still light enough to give the hair plenty of movement (and the same applies for summer frizz, so keep a bottle handy all year round).
The 125 mL bottle is available at Kerastase for $40.
