If you’re a long-term reader, you might have noticed that my go to hair pamper product is the Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask. Seriously, I love the stuff. After going through a couple containers of the mask, I thought it was time to branch out in the brand. Luckily I had some cached rewards points + a coupon code that were burning a hole in my pocket. You don’t even want to know how many rewards points I had stocked up at Ulta, but let’s say it was enough to order these three cans, a new self-tanner mitt, and a few eyeshadows… But now that I’ve almost completely used up the can of dry shampoo, I thought it was finally time to post my thoughts on these guys.
Texture spray is a new thing for me. Honestly, I’m still getting the hang of it and the only one I’ve really liked so far is the Oscar Blandi version because it isn’t too, well, gritty. That being said, I think the Surfs Up! Texture Spray is a decent drugstore priced alternative. It smells great, provides a lot of directed volume, and doesn’t have too much grit/residue to it. Am I completely and utterly wowed by it? No. But if texture spray is your jam, give this can a chance. Considering it’s one of two I’ll end up using until I hit empty (and will probably repurchase afterwards) out of the six or so I’ve tried since February? I’d say it has a pretty good track record.
Regular leave in conditioner is such a dilemma for me. Or at least when I wear my hair straight since I’ll want to add some hydration back into my ends. Leave in conditioner cream will mean too much water, will inevitably make me wavy, and mean I’ll have to do more heat styling. Which essentially defeats the purpose. Enter the golden boy of the trio, Forget Me Knot Dry Conditioner. It adds just enough hydration to my ends without ruining my blowout. For all you fine haired non-curly girls, it won’t weigh your hair down too much either.
Seeing as I only wash my hair about once or twice a week, dry shampoo is a staple on my bathroom sink. I go through cans upon cans like nobody’s business. Initially, the Freshen Up Dry Shampoo and I didn’t get along. I was rushing about it the morning, three-day hair still not that greasy but hanging a little limp and needed a little boost. The boost I got wasn’t what I was used to. After a few more times of the same scenario, I was set on labelling it as a no go. Fortunately, I didn’t give up on it and finally tried using it before bed then brushing out the product when I woke up in the morning. Winner. Winner. Chicken. Dinner. After a few hours of sleep, the product had settled in perfectly. Not only was there no residue or hint of unwelcome shine, my roots were surprisingly soft.
Ultimately it seems like I can’t find a product from Eva NYC that I don’t like. Click here to find the Surfs UP! Texture Spray, Forget Me Knot Dry Conditioner, and the Freshen Up Dry Shampoo. Have you used any Eva NYC products before? What did you think?
