(Source: R+Co)Like most women, I adore the feeling of a fresh blowout. The smoothness, the shine. You just can't beat it. But between my rushing around from the office, events, and working out, I don't always get to make it into the salon for a fresh 'do. (Let's be honest, this means I get a blowout once in a blue moon.) Enter R+Co. The new haircare brand, which stands for Rogue and Company, was created by none other than hair geniuses Howard McLaren, Thom Priano and Garren. It's a complete collection of snazzy haircare products—ranging from dry shampoos to styling wax to various shampoos and conditioners and more. This editor's personal fave, the Park Ave Blow Out Balm ($28), just happens to be the answer to my blowout-at-home prayers.
The styling balm goes on damp hair post washing but pre blow dry. Simply work the balm through hair and begin styling as normal. For me, that's air dry followed by a quick application of heat, then either a few minutes with a flat iron or curling wand. Now as much as I love a good blowout, I'm horrible at blow drying my hair myself. It always seems to be a big frizzy mess. But when I used the Park Ave Balm, I noticed my hair was tamed and shiny right from the get go. The balm coats the hair to protect it and gives it just enough hold to mimic that salon-bounce we all crave. Let's just say my faux-salon curls earned me plenty of compliments.
But not only does R+Co featured obsession-worthy products like the Park Ave Blow Out Balm, but the company is focused on style creation as well. They even created an interactive app, which allows stylists and consumers to view styling tutorials and learn to create flawless looks. Pretty snazzy if you ask me.
