Once a week, Birchbox’s resident Yoga and men’s product expert, Eric, will gives us girls some insight into his world in You’ve Got Male. Whether he’s giving his expertise on skincare (boys need advice, too!) or highlighting his new favorite grooming trend, this guy has got taste—so we’re lucky he’s on staff and willing to share.
A few years ago while at QVC, I was turned on to an amazing line of products that revolutionized the way I cleansed my hair. The brand that I discovered was none other than WEN, a line of Cleansing Conditioners created by celebrity hair stylist Chaz Dean.
The concept behind the company is quite revolutionary. In place of a regular shampoo and conditioner, WEN sells conditioners that cleanse your hair and scalp while moisturizing, detangling, and fortifying. I have naturally coarse, frizzy hair, but within a few weeks of using WEN, my hair was softer, shinier, and easier to manage. I started using the line when I was growing my hair out and it grew really beautifully. The Cleansing Conditioner comes in a bunch of yummy flavors, but my favorite is Tea Tree.
Cut to a few weeks ago when the grooming junkie in me got restless. I longed for the lather-y goodness of a traditional shampoo. I wanted something that was moisturizing for my dry hair, so I picked up Number 4 L’eau de Mer Hydrating Shampoo.
This shampoo is one of the creamiest, most luxurious formulas that I have ever used. One pump lathered up right away without effort and I followed up with the matching conditioner. After washing, my hair was clean, but not at all stripped. And it smells amazing! I have been reintroduced to the joys of two-step cleansing. My hair feels great just like it did when I was using WEN, but the cleansing process feels more glamorous and fun. I guess the moral of the story is that when it comes to grooming, just as in life, change is good. To keep your hair the best it can be, continue to switch it up.
