Despite popular belief that Asian hair is naturally straight and sleek, I have been a victim of flyaways for as long as I can remember. But not anymore since I started using the new Moroccanoil Smooth Collection!

Joico K-PAK RevitaLuxe Bio Advanced Restorative TreatmentWhile hunting for a hair masque to prep my long, dry Asian hair for the harsh Chicago winter that is inevitably going to come, I stumbled upon the new Joico K-PAK RevitaLuxe Bio-Advanced Restorative Treatment.

The product comes in a user-friendly tube and claims to make hair over 2 times more resistant to breakage, protect against color fade by 94% and prevent and correct years worth of hair damage. It can also be used in salon or at home on all hair types, including dry, damaged and color-treated.

Dry shampoo can be such a life saver in times of emergency or a hectic schedule. Which is why once the new TRESemme Fresh Start Collection hit the shelves, I picked up a can of their Volumizing Dry Shampoo to see how it compares to my favorite Ojon Rub-out Dry Cleanser.

Like the Ojon, the TRESemme Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo contains similar ingredients (mineral clay and corn starch) that claim to inject volume into fine/oily hair, remove odor and frizz while reducing excess oil by 75% without using water. It comes in a huge 5.7oz spray can, which is even bigger than the 4.1oz Ojon can. Yet it only costs $4.99, about 1/5 of the price of Ojon.
