Ever wanted to pick the brains of a celebrity hairdresser? Us too – which is why when we got the chance to speak to award-winning stylist Jason Collier, who’s worked with the likes of Victoria Beckham, Eva Longoria and Sienna Miller, we jumped at the chance.
One thing we really wanted to know was how the celebs achieve such incredible shine on their strands, and Jason had the perfect answer, using Eva Longoria’s appearance at a L’Oreal launch to prove his point.
‘Before styling Eva’s locks [for the event], I added SheaMoisture’s 10-in-1 Superfruit Renewal Masque to wet hair, leaving on for 10 mins,’ he detailed. ‘This gave Eva’s tresses the perfect base for styling, helping to condition, nourish and soften- not to mention adding a gorgeous shine.’
The antioxidant-rich treatment, which is available from Boots, uses Red Raspberry Ketone, Goji, Acai and Guava Extracts to destress and deep-condition hair, adding moisture, softness and shine.
When applied generously to freshly-washed hair, it can achieve great results in just five minutes, but you can also cover your hair with a plastic cap and leave the mask on for 30 minutes for a more intensive treatment – just be sure to rinse thoroughly afterwards.
And it’s not just Eva and Jason that are fans – the mask has received rave reviews on the Shea Moisture website, with one 5 star poster commenting: ‘I’ve never written a review for anything I’ve bought but I felt the need to after using this for a while. My hair is shiny, INSANELY soft, and my curls look super healthy.’
‘I looooove this deep conditioner. It’s my holy grail – nothing comes close it; including other SM deep conditioners,’ another agreed. ‘It’s the ONLY deep conditioner that moisturizes and softens my hair.’
Jason also recommends the brand’s Argan Oil & Almond Milk Smooth & Tame Blow Out Crème, which he’s used on Sienna Miller in the past to take frizz and flyways and leave hair looking silky smooth. Well, if it’s good enough for the A-list…
