Mane Attraction — New Hair Essentials From Arrojo
The first step to solving your beauty conundrums is to acknowledge them. For me, it was coming to grips with the fact that my hair, nails, and skin are all perpetually dry — seriously, I’m the human embodiment of a harvest after an unnervingly extensive drought. Body moisturizers, hydrating hair masques, cuticle oils, leave-in conditioners, and rebalancing body oils are all essential components of my personal irrigation system, if you will. When it comes to my mane, I’ve had to go beyond the shampoo/conditioner paradigm and find some heavy-duty reinforcements. And Arrojo’s new Hydro Mist has definitely been added to the rotation — it’s now part of my hair “circle of trust” (to borrow a phrase from De Niro‘s character in Meet the Parents).
The lightweight spray contains hygroplex and glycerin to infuse the hair with moisture and then seal it into the cuticle. Not only is the Hydro Mist a pick-me-up for dehydrated, damaged, and lifeless tresses, but it smells like heaven — scented with linden blossom, every time I spray it on, I think of the crisp smell of clean laundry. You can apply the mist to damp hair but you can also reach for it after you’ve styled your hair if you feel like it needs a bit of a boost — I personally find myself doing this a lot, especially when my ends start feeling a bit too frizzy or frayed.
Now, if you’re going for a wash-and-wear look, then a few sprays of the Hydro Mist and a light serum should do the trick, but if you’re going to take the time to style your hair (whether it’s by blow drying it, curling it, or flat ironing it), then I’d definitely recommend checking out the Set & Style. The spray provides a fair amount of hold for your desired style, while also adding shine and nourishing the hair thanks to antioxidant-rich Vitamin C and vitamin E, as well as oat proteins. Like the Hydro Mist, it features an invigorating, cheerful scent. Plus, it gives your hairstyle greater longevity without leaving your hair feeling stiff or crunchy (or damaging it in any way).
