Brand Spotlight: IGK

getting to know the IGK hair care line
Girl, there’s this IGK display at the Sephora by my house that I’ve walked past…I don’t know how numerous times, and I promise to gawd, up until about a month ago, I thought it was a display for R+Co!

Doesn’t the packaging look similar?


R+Co High Dive
IGK has cute packaging, yeah?
Still, I ought to probably, like, get my eyes inspected soon. maybe I ought to break down and get Lasik already.

IGK is a pretty new brand. I think they showed up in 2016, so they’re still the new kids on the hair block.

The name “IGK” is an acronym based on the names of the founders — two brothers and two of their friends — Frank Izquierdo, Leo Izquierdo, Aaron Grenia and Chase Kusero.

There’s a reference to “X-Men.” warte darauf.

They’re all us hairstylists who work in different cities, and if you look closely at the labels, they have a code at the top — MIA, nyc and LA — which is a shout-out to their respective city and the name of the scent, of which there are three in the line.

MIA, or the Miami scent, has guava, coconut water, pink lotus, violet and vanilla notes.
LA, the Los Angeles scent, has notes of bergamot, lemon zest, mimosa, heliotrope and black amber.
NYC, the new York City scent, has of black pepper, blackberry, violet, geranium and leather notes.

They’ve got everything you need to take care of hair — shampoos, conditioners and hair styling products. all of the products are cruelty free, offer UV and heat protection protection, and are made without mineral oils or petroleum.

Smoke & Mirrors Conditioning Cleansing Oil ($29)

I’ve tried a handful of things, and the product I’m completely and completely in love with is Smoke & Mirrors Conditioning Cleansing Oil.

Smoke & Mirrors Conditioning Cleansing Oil

You know how you use a cleansing oil for your face? Well, this is the same idea, except that it’s for your hair instead of your skin. It consists of coconut and sweet almond oils to clean hair without stripping it dry. So, basically, it’s a next-level conditioning cleanser.

You use it in place of shampoo and conditioner. just hop into the shower, wet your hair, then apply to your scalp. The bottle says to use a dime-sized amount, but my dollop is closer to a half-dollar for my long hair.

Work it through, moving the product down the shaft toward the ends. then rinse it out.

The oil removes gunk and funk while moisturizing your scalp and strands, and it doesn’t leave your hair feeling coated or heavy.

IGK suggests Smoke & Mirrors for dry scalps, curly and/or color-treated hair. I have all three of those things, and it works like a charm for me. Liebe es!

Jet Lag undetectable dry Shampoo ($29)

I think their dry shampoo, Jet Lag, is also really good. It’s completely invisible, even on dark hair. Like, I could spray half the can directly on my roots, and I swear, you wouldn’t see any residue at all. It’s kind of incredible!

Jet Lag undetectable dry Shampoo
It consists of oil-absorbing volcanic ash and lifts roots. To use it, all you do is spray it on your roots (you’ll feel a small cooling feeling on your scalp), then massage the product in with your fingers.

I like it as a dry shampoo (although I choose R+Co’s death Valley because it does a better job of sucking up the oil and makes my scalp feel a little cleaner after I use it), but I loooooooove it as a texturizing spray.

After I curl my hair, I spray Jet Lag on it from the midshaft to the ends to break up the uniformity of the curls and make my hair look windswept but not too messy.

Definitely gonna keep a bottle around for beachy wave hair days…which have been happening practically daily lately, ha!

Herrin Feuchtgut Haarbalsam (27 $) und Anrufzeit Styling Primer (27 $)

Ich fühle mich wie diese beiden Produkte, Herrin Feuchtgut Hair Balsam und Call Time Styling Primer sind einfach in Ordnung …

Herrin Hypernder Haarbalsam


Herrin ist ein Leur-In-Conditioner mit Kokosnussöl, und die Anrufzeit ist ein Glätten und “Detangling” -Schray. Sie arbeiten beide gut … aber ich glaube nicht, dass der Unterschied für 27 Dollar sichtbar ist.

Herrin Zutaten
Wasser, Propylenglykol, Cyclopentasiloxan, Dimethicon, Duft, Kokosnukte (Kokosnuss) Öl, PEG / PPG-18/18 Dimethicon, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Polyacrylamid, Laureth-7, Butylmethoxydifenzoylmethan, Ethylhexylmethoxycinnamat, Ethylhexylsalicylat, Benzyl Salicylat, BHT, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Butylphenylmethylpropional, Cumarin

Anrufzeitzutaten anrufen
Wasser, Butylenglykol, hydriertes Rizinusöl, Kokos-Nucifera (Kokosnuss), Sorbit, Ethylhexylglycerin, Benzophenon-4, Cetrimoniumchlorid, Panthenylhydroxypropylsteardimoniumchlorid, Silikon-Quaternium-16, Polyquaternium-4, PPG-5-Ceth- 20, Butyloctanol, Undeceth-11, Undeceth-5, Dinatrium EDTA, Natriumcitrat, Zitronensäure, Phenoxyethanol, Duftstoff, Benzyl Salicylat, Butylphenylmethylpropional, Cumarin

Für diesen Look wusch ich mir die Haare mit Rauch und Spiegelkonditionierungs-Reinigungsöl, dann angelegte Anrufzeit-Styling-Primer und Mistress-Hydrating-Haar-Balsam, während mein Haar noch feucht war. Nach dem Lufttrocknen kräuselte ich mich mit einem Lockenbügel, dann aufgetragene Düsenverzögerung bis zu den Enden.
Ihre freundliche Nachbarschaftszusatzsüchtige,
