I am a badass. Okay, maybe not for real, but in my own, vivid imagination, I can pretend. Thanks to Badass Hair, you, too, can channel your inner badass. Debuting in late 2008, Badass Hair is the brainchild of celebrity stylist Scott Fontana. Born into a family of hair stylists, Fontana has been in the business for over 24 years and has owned his own salon for 15 years. He has styled the hair of celebrities and done the hair for fashion and tv shows, not to mention photo shoots and music videos. Now, he has turned his years of experience and know-how into a new, luxury hair care line with a rock and roll vibe for the masses.
Badass Hair describes itself as “American in style. Rugged in attitude. Defiantly creative.” (Oddly enough, these are the EXACT words I would use to describe myself!) Made in the USA, the line contains 30 different products and boasts that it contains very simple ingredients that work. The product we got to sample of this innovative new line is their Ecstasy Luxury Intense Moisturizing Shampoo. Recommended for all hair types, the shampoo contains ingredients like lemongrass extract (works to normalize hair), aloe extract (soothes dry hair), keratin amino acids (works to repair and condition hair) and coconut oil extract (conditions hair and creates a rich lather). You can practically feel it working just by reading the label!
First impression: How cool is the label? It is a hot pink graphic that features a spikey-haired skull with hair shears as the crossbones. Feel that? That’s your inner badass trying to get out! Second impression: Dang does this stuff smell fabulous! The scent is a rich vanilla with a hint of coconut. I could huff this shampoo all day! My one complaint: the 7 oz. size comes in a tube and isn’t thick enough for this delivery system. This shampoo belongs in a bottle–you don’t want to waste a drop, so open it cap side up. When I worked the product through my hair, I didn’t get as much lather as I thought I would, but I could tell that it was getting the job done. My one piece of advice is to rinse your hair thoroughly when you use this because it has so many conditioning ingredients that if you don’t rinse fully, it can weigh your hair down. When my hair dried, it smelled great, felt soft, had a nice sheen to it, and was bouncy. You’ve got to love shiny, bouncy hair. I think there is a rule or something.
So, has anybody else out there channeled their inner badass?
