The Ultimate Frizz-Tamer and Detangler
What is it? It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product. A cult favorite leave-in conditioner that helps you score glossy, smooth strands.
Who’s it perfect for? This mist is the Hercules of hair products—it really does tackle 10 different hair woes, which explains why everyone we know who uses it is fairly obsessed. It’s great for anyone who’s ever struggled with split ends, had out of control flyaways, or seen their hard-won color fade too quickly—and those are just a few of its many great qualities. (Did we mention that it smells just like something you’d find in a high-end salon?)
Insider deets from a Birchbox staffer: "I’m obsessed with this stuff! I use it every day. I actually discovered it at my hair salon at home a few years ago, and it’s the only product that truly gets my tangled, gnarly wet hair to be smooth and conditioned. I just need a few spritzes and a little brushing, then I’m good to go!" —Juliette, Community Manager
