We’re not shy with our love of this new hair care collection!
I’m sorta obsessed with hair care and am always on the quest for the latest and greatest. Because I have long straight hair that I abuse on a daily basis with a hair dryer and straightening iron, I feel like I need to use high quality products that will help protect my locks from all the potential damage. I also live in a pretty humid place that wrecks havoc on my straight hair. By the end of a typical Texas day, I have frizzy fur balls living on top of my head. Not attractive to say the least.
When I was sent several products from Coy Hair to try out, I was more than willing to put them to the test. Not only did I try them out here at home, but I also took them to Florida and the Texas gulf coast with me…two even more humid places than where I live. I knew if Coy could make my hair look beautiful in these environments, then we would be friends for life.
Coy Hair was created by two great friends on a quest to make hair care products for real women who style their hair at home. Coy Hair founders, “feel that too many professional lines focus on editorial styling and unrealistic hairstyles.” A line created for real woman sounded perfect to me and I couldn’t wait to put it to the test!
I tested three products from Coy’s carefully crafted collection and and we’re going to start by talking about one of my favorites, the Canvas Foundation Spray, that preps hair for the day (or night!) by “detangling, evening porosity and smoothing the cuticles.” And let me tell you, smooth cuticles were just what the doctor ordered for my hair issues.
The Canvas Foundation Spray ($17) comes in a bottle with a large pump. I love the packaging design, but do wish the spray came out in a little bit of a finer mist. The smell of this product is delightful. It reminds me of vanilla sugar and leaves me and my young daughter’s hair smelling amazing!
I was grateful every humidity-filled day I had this with vacation with me! The Canvas Foundation Spray leaves my hair feeling soft and manageable, without weighing it down. It gives a very light conditioning sheen, with a hint of shine but never turns oily. And it kept my frizziness to a minimum.
Next up, I tested Groom Styling Cream, a medium hold styling cream that “sets your style with pliable structure while adding texture and mobility.” I typically don’t use a styling cream because they weigh my hair down, but I was eager to see if Groom ($24) could change my mind.
Housed in a simple squeeze tube, this cream can be used by both men and women, and conditions and adds shine to styled hair. The first time I used this product I think I applied too much as my hair was too oily on the ends. A little bit of this cream goes a long way.
Since then, I’ve been using just about a pea size amount and have had much better results. My hair does hold it’s shape better, but I’m still not sure I’m a styling cream fan (I think it’s a personal preference).
Lastly, I tested the Polish Finishing Serum which promises to “magically transform dull or fly-away hair into a soft, shiny, lustrous mane.” Again, a small drop of product goes a long way, and a bit of this serum is the perfect finishing touch for my hair. Just use your fingertips to spot apply or rub a small amount all over your locks, if needed.
This serum was a life saver on vacation. Just a little bit of Polish ($24) in the morning helped keep my frazzled hair happy all day. Even better, this serum tackled those lovely frizzy fur balls I mentioned earlier. Spot treating the flyaways on top of my head helps to keep them from forming – more bonus points for Coy!
Some of my fellow review team members tested additional Coy products, so make sure to check the comments for their thoughts on these items:
Lift Thickening Spray ($20) – a lightweight spray that pumps up the volume of your hair! It thickens the hair shaft and adds texture, while soothing the scalp.
Kink Curl Cream ($26) – a must for curly locks, this creams uses Jojoba and avocado oils to naturally enhance curls, smooth fly aways and control the frizzies.
Construct Matt Pomade ($22) – great for men and women, this is a strong-hold, but moldable pomade. Use this pomade in short hair for a sweeping, retros style or in long hair hair for that piece-y look always popular during the summer.
Overall, from the simple packaging and effective formulas to the reasonable price tag, I was really impressed with Coy Hair. This line offers something to suit every hair type…curly, straight, damaged, dry, fine and more – and I happily recommend that you don’t be coy, and grab some Coy Hair care for yourself!
