Summer Heat-Wave Essential: Kérastase Bain Vital
It was 100-plus degrees in New York yesterday afternoon. That’s hot. Your hair and scalp often bear the brunt of summer’s intense conditions, when the sun’s burning rays are beating down on you. Just in time to heal a scorched scalp comes Kérastase’s Bain Vital, the Paris haircare brand’s first hypoallergenic shampoo that’s formulated with anti-inflammatory peppermint, a soothing ingredient from willow extract, and nongreasy glycerin to hydrate and protect your scalp from redness and irritation. Part of the Dermo-Calm collection previously only available in Europe, the shampoo can be used daily and is especially handy as a post-swim tonic to remove drying chlorine or dulling saltwater residue. We plan to rinse, lather, and repeat until the mercury is on our side again.
