SASO TEAM FAVOURITE PRODUCTS

May 05, 2021 5 min read

We asked our talented stylists, estheticians, and salon support staff for their favourite hair and skincare products. If you find yourself asking which hair or skin products are right for you, these are some of our favourites! Let us know in the comments if you agree. ​Our hair stylists are experts in blonding, creative colours, extensions, and colour corrections.
OUR #SASOTEAM TOP 5 FAVES:
  1. Perfect hair Day™ Dry Shampoo
    Living Proof 

    Why our team loves it:
    Nadine: I have fine, flat, greasy hair, and PhD dry shampoo is my go-to. The smell isn't overwhelming and it works!
    Aaron: It's super absorbent and soft and silky to the touch; never gritty or tacky. It has time-released odour neutralizers that make your hair smell better over the day. I like to put it in my hair before bed and let it work overnight!
    Shanna: I love it because it works! It is scientifically proven to clean hair. I always get the Jumbo size and I spray it on before I go to sleep or before working out!
    Kami: It actually cleans my hair. And sometimes I’m not greasy but I get hat hair so I will spray some in my hair and give it a quick zhuzh. If you walk or bike to work, having a trial size in your bag is super useful!
  2. YOUNG.AGAIN Hair Oil
    Kevin Murphy

    Why our team loves it:
    Aaron: It's super-hydrating and leaves you with a satin-silky finish; never greasy and a little goes a long way!
    Ailesh: It's a lovely silky oil that feels nourishing and hydrating.
    Jewel: It's amazing, smooth, light, not greasy, feels great on your hands.
    Tyler: You can put a ton in your hair and it won't get greasy! It is made from immortel flower (like from Tangled)
  3. BEDROOM.HAIR Texturizing Spray
    Kevin Murphy 

    Why our team loves it:
    Aaron: It's the perfect amount of moldability and grit while still staying super touchable. And the smell is so damn good! It puts the "Fluff me" in Bedroom Hair 😉
    Roma: It makes it easier to piece your hair and works great for power ponies or a messy look.
    Kami: The smell is to die for, and the fact that it has hold but also works well for giving texture!
    Tessa: It smells soo pretty. It's my go-to texturizing hair spray!
     ​
  4. No. 6 Bond Smoother
    Olaplex ​

    Why our team loves it:
    Shanna: Apply to the mids to ends of your hair. It can be used as a detangler after the shower, before brushing. I love it because it smooths your hair cuticle, adds moisture, strengthens and reduces frizz. And you can use it every day on wet or dry hair!​ It’s also good as a blow-dry cream.
    Kami: It smells like heaven, makes your hair so soft, and smooths down frizz.
    Aaron: It's my anti-pouff product! It speeds up blow-dry time, creates amazing anti-frizz and anti-humidity, and leaves hair silky soft. It is a bond builder so it strengthens hair at the same time. And it's hot yoga approved - my hair will stay frizz-free and straight if I use this during my blowout.
    Olaplex calls it a citrus scent, but I think it smells like a pineapple mojito with a vanilla-sugar rim and a pink umbrella 🏖🍹

  5. BODY.MASS Volumizing Leave-In Conditioner
    Kevin Murphy

    Why our team loves it:
    Nadine: I love that it has the same technology as Latisse® eyelash growing serum; I recommend this to all of my clients who are postpartum or suffering from hair loss.
    Roma: It's perfect to add volume for someone like me who has chicken-fluff hair.
    Heather: Great for hair loss and gives volume to naturally straight, flat hair such as myself.

HONOURABLE MENTIONS:​
  • FRESH.HAIR Dry Shampoo
    Kevin Murphy

    Why our team loves it:
    Ailesh: In my opinion, it works as well as the Living Proof PHD dry shampoo, but it smells like cake 😍
    Robin: It's one of the only dry shampoos that doesn't leave white residue in my brunette hair.
  • Beach Club Volume Texture Spray
    IGK

    Why our team loves it:
    Shanna: It is not sticky and it smells amazing!
    Tyler: It gives you the sexiest hair without making it greasy. The BEST product for big, bouncy, voluminous curls.
  • Superstar Oil Over Natural Deodorant
    Routine Natural Goods

    Why our team loves them:
    Robin: I love the deodorant in the scent "A Girl Named Sue". It works incredibly well as a natural deodorant, and for someone with a lot of allergies, it is a game-changer!​​
    Aaron: The curator scent is very gender-neutral, it is baking soda free so it doesn't make my skin react. It lasts all day! #StinkyBoyApproved
    Tessa: I love the Blackberry Betty scent in the deodorant. The Superstar Oil All Over also smells delicious and is a great pre-cleanse in my skincare routine!
  • PLUMPING.WASH/RINSE Volumizing 
    Shampoo/Conditioner
    Kevin Murphy

    ​Why our team loves them:
    Nadine: I am obsessed with the scent. Love how it gives my hair a bouncy, full effect!
    Roma: It gives my thin, flat hair more life and helps to densify each strand of hair.​
  • SESSION.SPRAY.FLEX ​Hairspray
    Kevin Murphy

    Why our team loves it:
    Nadine: I love the smell of this hairspray. It's a great amount of hold without the crunch. You can layer it over for days and still have touchable hair.
    Aaron: It’s flexible, never crunchy, and has heat protection up to 450°F
    Kami: It has a medium buildable hold but it is still brushable.

  • Restore Instant Protection Spray
    Living Proof

    Why our team loves it:
    Nadine: This is my favourite heat protection for wet or dry use! 
    Kami: It’s an aerosol heat protectant which is nice because it doesn’t wet your hair, it smells heavenly, and is very good for damaged hair. It's also great for blondes because it helps restore in addition to protecting!
  • SHIMMER-ME.BLONDE & 
    SHIMMER.SHINE Shine Sprays
    Kevin Murphy

    Why our team loves them:
    Roma: Lightweight oil that helps seal the ends of your hair but has a beautiful reflective property that shines in the light and adds dimension.
    Heather: It makes my hair shimmer on dull hair days!
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day™ Dry shampoo
Kevin Murphy YOUNG AGAIN Hair Oil
Kevin Murphy BEDROOM HAIR Texturizing spray
Olaplex Number 6 Bond Smoother
Kevin Murphy BODY MASS Volumizing Leave-In Conditioner

Kevin Murphy FRESH HAIR Dry Shampoo
IGK Beach Club volume texture spray
 
Routine Superstar Oil All Over
Kevin Murphy Plumping Wash thickening shampoo
Kevin Murphy PLUMPING RINSE Volumizing Conditioner
Kevin Murphy Session Spray Flex hairspray
Living Proof Restore Instant Protection spray
Kevin Murphy Shimmer-Me Blonde & Shimmer Shine sprays

Curly Girl/Curly Hair Faves

  • Curl Enhancer Conditioning Cream
    Living Proof

    Why our team loves it:
    Aaron: It makes your bounce bouncier! It takes your waves and makes them curls and enhances your S-curl pattern. It's super moisturizing and has a very light hold, which leaves your hair feeling soft and touchable (not crunchy, stiff, or weighed down!)
    The front of my hair is straight and the back is very curly and this helps to even that out! Recommended for people who need that extra bounce in their air-dried or diffused curly hair 
    #CurlyGirlApproved 
  • KILLER.CURLS & KILLER.WAVES
    Anti-Frizz Curl Enhancers

    Kevin Murphy

    Why our team loves them: 
    Tyler: Both smell really good and leave your hair with a nice soft curl or wave. @My curly friends - they won't make your hair look like ichiban noodles!

  • HAIR.RESORT.SPRAY Beach spray
    Kevin Murphy

    Why our team loves it:
    Tyler: It has SPF built-in to protect your hair from the sun's harsh rays! It works great to amplify texture from braids or just to emphasize your natural waves.

  • RE.STORE Cleansing Balm
    Kevin Murphy

    Why our team loves it:
    Aaron: It is a great "no-poo" cleanser!
    Nadine: I use it as a co-wash to repair my hair. I have fine, flat hair so I need elasticity and strength or my hair breaks easily. I use it as a treatment to rebuild strength. Read more about co-washing in my blog here!
    Tessa: It's faster than shampoo and conditioner when you're feeling really lazy. It's also really great for co-washing!
