If you’ve seen a celebrity rocking a perfect hairdo in an Instagram selfie or on the red carpet, it’s probably because they have a great hairstylist behind them. Ask Cherilyn Farris—as one of them, she should know! Cherilyn has styled hair for a number of celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Jenna Dewan, and more since joining Jen Atkin’s team in Los Angeles. She gave us her best non-toxic recommendations for hair products that she loves to use on her clients.
Oway Micro-Stimulating Hair Bath$45.95Buy Now
My favorite shampoo year round. It helps promote hair growth and if that’s not enough the smell is delightful. The natural peppermint creates a slightly tingly sensation for a fresh, clean feeling scalp without drying out your hair or stripping away too much natural oil.
Being Frenshe Nourishing Hair Mask$14.99Buy Now
This mask is giving my clients the softest strands. It’s nourishing and hydrating which will strengthen your hair, especially in the colder months! Also, for the hair product as fragrance lovers, this is for you because the scent lasts for days.
O&M Know Knott Detangling Spray$31.95Buy Now
The leave-in conditioner I obsessively keep in stock. This detangling spray is softening, hydrating, and ultra lightweight so it is great to use on any hair type; it won’t weigh down fine, thin hair yet effectively conditions thicker, coarser strands. Consider this your best friend during sweater weather when we tend to get unwanted dreads at the nape.
Rahua Voluminous Dry Shampoo$32Buy Now
When you need a refresh, start here. I use this to get revive day (or days) old hair. This non-aerosol dry shampoo absorbs oil and can build volume in any style. The squeeze bottle makes it so simple to target specific areas and disperses the product easily.
Being Frenshe Hair and Body Radiance Oil$16.99Buy Now
I love a multi-tasking product because that means fewer products to pack when you’re on the go. Use a few drops of this oil through the ends of your hair to seal and hydrate or all throughout for added shine. Bonus, lather the excess oil on your hands and skin for a nourishing boost and radiant skin.
Oway Thermal Stress Protector$53.95Buy Now
One of the best ways to prevent damage is to protect your hair from heat when you use it. I love this thermal protectant because I can use it on wet or dry hair to minimize any heat damage, and it has a light hold so it prolongs the life of a style.
