Flat irons can sometimes dry out and damage hair. Cricket, a hair tools company, has come up with the Ultra Smooth Styling Iron, which has ceramic-coated plates infused with keratin protein for strength and argan oil to moisturize ($89.95 at folica.comand CricketCo.com).
Rice and Seaweed
Along with its Hair Regrowth Treatment, Keranique offers a line of keratin-enriched hair care products. It includes a shampoo and conditioner ($34.95 each), both of which contain siliqua seed extract and biotin, and a “lift” spray ($19.95) with hydrolyzed rice protein and carrageenan, a seaweed extract (keranique.com).
Keratin Complex, known for smoothing products, has a brush-on Volumizing Dry Shampoo Lift Powder ($35). The purse-size lemon-scented shampoo is applied at the root, where it’s intended to freshen and increase volume. There’s also a Sparkle + Shine Keratin Highlighting Powder, which is available in bronze, gold and copper shades and can offer a little tinted color at the roots between salon visits ($35 each at KeratinComplex.com).
