CHATELAINE – September 2006 BEAUTY Colouring Kit 86. L’Oréal Paris Natural Match, $13. When you don’t want a drastic hair-colour change, this no-ammonia kit offers natural-looking shades with undertones (ash, natural, gold or red) to suit you. Colour Care 87. Dove Advanced Colour Care, 355ml, $7. A welcome addition to an already diverse hair-care line, this formula leaves colour-treated hair shiny, not brassy. HAIRSTYLERS: MOUSSE, GEL, HAIRSPRAY AND SERUM 88. Kiehl’s Stylist Series Silk Groom Serum, 75ml, $21. The original cream version is too rich for daily use. That’s why we love this lightweight serum that muscles out frizz and delivers shine. 89. John Frieda Frizz-Ease DownPlay Volume Reducer, 147ml, $10. Puffy hair is never good. Let frizz-busting ingredients (silicone and green tea) calm humidity-swollen locks. BEST SPLURGE 90. Fréderick Fekkai Overnight Hair Repair, 100ml, $195. Uses wheat and rice ceramides and pro-vitamin B5 to strengthen damaged hair while you sleep. It absorbs instantly, so there’s no nasty film on your pillow. BEST DEAL Tresemmé Hair ColorThrive Shampoo and Conditioner, 591ml, $7 each. These products sustained our hair colour three times longer than our everyday product. Follow with the coordinating cream for best results. SPECIALTY SHAMPOO 92. Curly Hair Solutions Silk Series, $14-$52. Curly hair needs a lot of moisture, and this delivers with a blend of pure silk protein and lecithin to keep natural curls soft and hydrated. 93. Head & Shoulders, 420ml, $7. A long time staple, this reformulated version still banishes white flakes, but it’s the refreshing, non-offensive scent that had us smiling.
