Ojon Super Sleek Straightening System Pictured With Aveda Invati Line

We all know the natural hair care movement is really big right now but for those of you who don’t want to give up their straightened tresses, there are some great new gentler alternatives. Super Sleek sounds like a hair straightening system we wouldn’t mind getting our hands on. Ojon recently launched their latest innovation that enables customers to smooth and straighten their curly/wavy locks at home rather than spending countless dollars on expensive and oftentimes dangerous straightening services at salons. The Super Sleek System is powered by the Super Sleek Straightening Complex which includes several plant-derived botanicals that naturally smooth and soften the hair cuticle resulting in a frizz-free, silky appearance. According to Geoffrey Hawkins, the VP of Product Development, this revolutionary new system is destined to change the way women view straightening their hair:

A gentle reshaping agent relaxes and smooths out the curved structure of hair’s keratin bonds, making them supple and flexible. Then our proprietary blend — including plant keratin derived from wheat, soy and corn proteins and azurite — acts like a liquid flat iron to realign natural keratin bonds and seal in straightness. It also fills in rough spots on the cuticle that can make hair appear frizzy, coarse and unmanageable. Finally, this treatment acts as a conduit for heat transfer from blow dryers and flat irons to instantly loosen curls.”

The Super Sleek Straightening System includes:

It Factor, Hair Care Collection, http://www.itfactorbeauty.com

Any products that claim to cut down drying time by 50% automatically get our attention here at The Black Market. We believe in championing beauty products that enhance one’s beauty while also improving her quality of life. Any extra time we can shave off of our beauty routine is worth its weight in gold. That’s where It Factor Hair Care comes in. This new hair care line has created shampoos and conditioners that claim to cut drying time by 50%. The reason they can make this claim is because of the unique combination of botanical ingredients and the Vaporboost system which increases the hair’s drying time without forgoing quality results. We are eager to see if this claim is true. Stay tuned for a review!


Beauty Addictions: Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Creme

Bumble & Bumble, Curl Conscious Defining Creme, $28, http://www.bumbleandbumble.com

There’s something cool about a hair care product with the word conscious in the title. Maybe it plays up to our need to purchase smart hair products that take our intrinsic hair care needs in mind or maybe it’s just a really cool marketing ploy. Whatever it is, we are obsessing over Bumble and Bumble’s Curl Conscious Defining Creme. One of the reasons this product is so adored is because it’s created specifically for curly girls with fine hair. As a fine curly girl, I have personally dealt with the challenges of locating products that define my curls without weighing them down. This product doesn’t contain many of the oils and silicones like traditional curly products so that curls can move with ease. If you’re not a fine curly girl, don’t fret. There is a Conscious Curl Defining Creme for coarse curly girls too.
