Want luxurious, wavy locks? Skip the curling iron — the Real Me Collection by nuNAAT delivers the look effortlessly!

MARC JACOBS FALL 2013, WAVY HAIR IS BACKHair trends come and go. But, for those of us with wavy, curly or even kinky locks, those years of maintaining flat-ironed, pin straight hair were pure torture.

That’s why I was so thrilled to read in Harper’s BAAZAR’s recent Hair Trends Report for Fall 2013 that big, beautiful, bouncy waves are back!

For example, at the Marc Jacobs show, hair stylist extraordinaire Guido created lush, long waves that took on a life of their own (see left). Guido simply says, “Sometimes more is more.” Oh yes, Guido, I agree!

Lest you think you need to hire your own personal stylist to recreate the wavy look on a day-to-day basis, I have a wonderful new find that I can’t wait to share – it’s called the Real Me Collection by nuNAAT. The collection contains everything you need to get the beachy, wavy trend for yourself effortlessly — from shampoo, to conditioner, to a hair mask, to shine and even pomade.

nuNAAT Lather Up And Hydrate Shampoo, Real Me CollectionThe entire Real Me Collection is free of sulfates, mineral oils, parabens and sodium chloride. And, these products work beautifully on chemically treated and relaxed hair, too.

LATHER UP & HYDRATE SHAMPOO

I absolutely love this shampoo! It’s got a refreshing, slightly spicy scent. It lathers beautifully. And, it’s formulated with Join Complex® for moisture renewal and incredible shine. Lather Up & Hydrate Shampoo not only cleanses, but also moisturizes multi-textured hair without weighing it down and pulling out all of that beautiful wave. The result is hair that’s silky soft and much easier to style.

nuNAAT Real Moisture Conditioner, Real Me CollectionREAL MOISTURE CONDITIONER

Over the years, I think that I may have tried every conditioner on the market! Finding one that softens, hydrates and detangles, but doesn’t weigh my hair down or (eww!) feel sticky has been a tough task. But the Real Moisture Conditioner satisfies on all counts. The fruity scent is extremely pleasant. And, the result is truly softer and more manageable hair.

nuNAAT Pick Me Up Sheen, Real Me CollectionPICK ME UP SHEEN

A must-have! The Pick Me Up Sheen softens and protects wavy or curly hair, but leaves sensational shine. Since I color my hair, this is a huge bonus, as coloring seems to sap the “life” out of my hair. Pick Me Up Sheen also helps control the frizzies – a must for those drizzly days of fall.  You can use this before you blow dry or use a styling tool. Just apply a few drops to damp hair or, use it throughout the day to restore vitality (by 3:00, I definitely need it).

nuNAAT Blast of Shine Hair Mask, Real Me CollectionBLAST OF SHINE HAIR MASK

This treatment defines natural curly and wavy textures, moisturizes hair, banishes frizz and controls flyaways. Simply apply to clean hair and let stand for five minutes. Then, rinse thoroughly. For a more intense treatment or for the first time you use the Mask, let stand for up to 15 minutes. The result is simply gorgeous “mermaid hair!”

nuNAAT Natural Curl Activator, Real Me CollectionNATURAL CURLACTIVATOR

If you’re fighting a battle with frizz, the Natural Curlactivtor is the ultimate weapon. For hydrated hair that’s frizz-free, simply apply to wet hair and style. You’ll get show stopping curls without the annoying flyaways or excessive volume.

nuNAAT Perfect Do Pomade, Real Me CollectionPERFECT DO POMADE

The Perfect Do Pomade is crucial for curled-but-controlled looks. Since my hair is long, I have not used pomade often, so I was a little leery of the result. But, this was so easy to use! Apply a small quantity to control your style, or dab on edges to keep them perfectly in place. I found that it’s particularly effective on split ends and reduces that “fuzzy look” until you can make it into the salon for a haircut!
