Clean Beauty Tips for Straight Hair

Balayage Much? Our Clean Hair Picks for Straight Hair with Color

What’s not to love about balayage? The hand-painted technique can add dimension to straight hair and perfects that “lived-in” color we crave. But even though balayage is a healthier highlighting choice (it allows longer time in between root touchups) it’s still a chemical process, so aftercare is important for your straight and/or fine hair. 

Val Tana, owner of Vaza Salon in Ossining, New York says her clients (and huge balayage fans!) love the diversity of Innersense Organic Beauty products for their ability to work harmoniously on straight and textured hair. Here are four of her clean beauty tips to keep straight, balayage hair beautiful and healthy.

Clean Beauty Blonde Hair1. Use a Hydrating Shampoo on Straight Hair with Balayage

“My favorite cleansing and conditioning routine for straight hair with balayage is Hydrating Cream Hairbath and Hydrating Cream Conditioner.”


2. Add Even More Moisture to Straight Hair

“After Hydrating Cream Hairbath and Hydrating Cream Conditioner, I love Sweet Spirit Leave In Conditioner and I Create Lift Volumizing Foam for light hold for styling, blowing out and creating texture on straight hair.”

3. Layer Moisture, Then Hold

“I always layer with the foundation of moisture, then hold (Sweet Spirit Leave In Conditioner and I Create Lift Volumizing Foam). Even if someone does not blow out their hair, the pair makes a versatile combo for all textures and can be used to scrunch to get a natural wave


4. Straight Hair Loves Extra Conditioner, too!

“For straight hair that has been balayaged, we do suggest leaving a tiny bit of conditioner in the hair as it adds moisture and it improves how the hair feels without weighing it down.”

Hydrating Hair Masque + Harmonic Healing Oil

Repair and revitalize dry, coarse and damaged hair with our rich treatment masque crafted with flax seed, shea butter, coconut and tamanu oils and quinoa. Then, after cleansing, conditioning and styling hair, emulsify a few drops of Harmonic Healing Oil in your palms, then use fingers to gloss tips of the hair and tame flyaways. TIP: Once a week, apply Hydrating Hair Masque to wet hair and work in with fingers or a wide tooth comb. Wrap hair in a bamboo towel or shower cap for 20 minutes before rinsing out to reveal softer, smoother hair.


Clean Beauty Hair Styler


Straight hair requires styling products that deliver hold without the weight. Our Allure Best of Beauty Award-winning I Create Lift Volumizing Foam provides beautiful hold, fullness and manageability with honey, sugarcane and aloe. TIP: Emuslify a pump of I Create Lift Volumizing Foam in hands, then rake through dry, freshly styled hair with your fingers add create soft, natural dimension.
