Together, the collection is made of essentials for washing, styling, and treating hair. “My goal when it comes to doing someone’s hair is to always get the best look — but healthy hair is important as well,” she says. “Some people will sacrifice health to get the look that they want. And some people will want health and not get the style right.” With Kim Kimble’s line, you get both.
On tap is the vitamin E-packed Coconut Milk & Avocado Oil Shampoo ($12), which is sulfate-free and promises a gentle cleanse, while its sister Conditioner ($11) uses castor oil to deeply moisturize and offer a generous helping a slip so those with textured hair can detangle in-shower. There is the Coconut Leave In Cream with Avocado ($14), which contains silk protein to soften as it strengthens fragile strands. Of course, it’s a multitasker — you can use it to moisturize, but it also works as a heat protectant and detangler. Kimble notes that the leave-in is a boon for wavy textures, as well as curly and kinky ones, too.
The Shine Spray ($15) tamps down on frizz with an assist from jojoba seed oil, and, as Kimble notes, can also be used before you blow-dry to shield your hair from heat. Damaged strands of all textures will love the Repair Serum ($10), which you use on wet hair to reinforce split ends. “You can use it whether [your hair is] straight, [or] curly,” she says.
If you love a hot tool, relaxer, or you’ve had a coloring mishap, this is will also come in clutch. “[The serum] is going to help you begin to repair the hair,” says Kimble. “It’s got certain things like wheat [and] amino proteins in there. Those things help rebuild the hair and get it to a place where [it starts] to feel and look better.”
The hero product, however, is the Curly Pudding Creme ($17), which Kimble says is her favorite of the bunch, though it was the most difficult to get just right. “Curl products are usually the ones you work on the most,” she explains. “We went ’round and ’round with [the curl pudding]. I wanted something that had not only hydrating and moisturizing [properties], but also can get curl definition.”
The curl creme works best on tighter curls, and Kimble says that its texture and effect is like a cross between a cream and a gel. You get the softness and definition of the former and the hold of the latter all in one. Use the Curly pudding in your wash-and-gos or if you’re doing twist-outs or Bantu knots.
Kim Kimble’s line drops on Friday, September 11, for $10 to $17, so head over to Sally Beauty to pick up the latest from the legendary hairstylist.
