Remember Salon Selectives? The popular brand of the ‘80s and ‘90s that made women feel like they just stepped out of a salon? Well, Salon Selectives is hoping to capitalize on nostalgia and get back into the hair grooming game.
“The re-introduction of Salon Selectives represents a great opportunity for our company,” said Dr. Eugene Zeffren, CEO of SSB, the company that distributes and markets Salon Selectives. “Our research shows that the brand still has over 80 percent awareness among our target consumers. These women don’t just remember the Salon Selectives name, they retain a host of other positive associations, including the apple scent and the customized hair care message – they can even sing the jingle.”
Starting in March 2008, Salon Selectives will be returning to the shelves with updated packaging and new formulas – but will retain trademarks such as pink bottles, apple fragrance, and customization.
There are 18 items in the line, with three shampoos, five conditioners and 10 styling and treatment products – ten of which are now available for purchase on drugstore.com. And according to Women’s Wear Daily, the marketing plan includes TV and print ads that will run startng beginning in April.
I so hope they resurrect the old jingle. Speaking of which, check out this old-school Salon Selectives commercial I dug up on YouTube. Perhaps this will jog your memory…
So without having heard anything about Ojon’s new Rare Harvest Tunu Elastik Hair Tamer, I picked it up on a whim during a recent trip to Sephora. Ojon has yet to disappoint me, so I took a chance on this $25 leave-in hair relaxer/de-frizzing balm.
Here’s what the package promised: * imparts a soft, flexible smoothness to all hair types * naturally seals the cuticle to stay sleek * eliminates frizz caused by humidity * provides a moisture barrier * formulated without alcohol and silicone * perfect for all hair types – straight, curly, permed, or relaxed
Does it deliver? You betcha! I took the bottle to Erik, my hairstylist, when I went to the salon yesterday evening. We were both surprised by how smooth and glossy my hair was after blowdrying – and its gel/mousse hybrid texture doesn’t weigh my fine hair down. Best of all, it’s snowing/sleeting/freezing raining here in Philly – but you wouldn’t know it to look at my hair. Even one of my co-workers remarked this morning. My hair has been looking seriously jacked up for weeks…so I was super excited to get a compliment – you don’t even know. I was doing the happy dance. And I have Ojon (and Erik) to thank.
Bottom line: Go get this stuff right now. It’s $23.50 on QVC, but if you buy it at Sephora and you don’t like it for whatever reason, returning it is a breeze. But chances are you won’t return it, cuz I know you’re gonna love it!
I normally wouldn’t advocate spending more than $15-20 on shampoo or conditioner; but when you have hair with behavioral problems like mine, well, sometimes you’ve gotta pay the cost to be the boss.
Philip B White Truffle Shampoo and White Truffle Nourishing Hair Conditioning Creme impart moisture, elasticity, and shine to chemically processed, dry, or damaged hair. The miracle broth of 23.2% pure botanical extracts (white truffle, lavender, comfrey, thyme, hops, and nettle) instantly disciplined my mane. Usually when I use a new hair product, I need to blow it dry and style it before I notice any difference. With this shampoo and conditioner, I felt the difference in the shower! The only thing I can liken it to is Ritalin for your hair.
At $54 and $75 – stay with mehere – these products cost 3 and 4 times what I, a beauty junkie, would typically spend on shampoo and conditioner. But considering how much I generally pay for hair serums, lotions, and potions promising to make my hair behave – I will gladly dig deep into my pockets to fund this addiction.

For my birthday, my sister gave me a makeup bag chock-full of travel-sized Molton Brown goodies. Nothing of the bunch disappoints, but there are a few superstars.
Molton Brown’s Shining Starbloom Haircondition & Detangle is a lightweight leave-in conditioner that brings vitality to lifeless hair, providing superior detangling. After washing and conditioning my hair, all I need is a few mists; it hydrates my dry stands, and my wide-toothed comb glides through like butta.
Shining star for you to see…what your hair can truly be!
“Whether you are flying out the door or flying around the world, running to work or running on the treadmill, this line will work for you.”
The entire line consists of 2 groupings – a hair care group and a body care group. Each contains 3 products, in individual bottles, held together with an overcap and an undercap. All bottles are flip-top and can stand up on their own.
The hair care trio consists of body wash, shampoo, and conditioner. The body care trio consists of body polish, shave gel, and lotion. Both sets are currently on sale for $12.
