This is your best defense against hat hair

It’s officially winter, which means, at least for those of us who experience real winters (sub-zero temperatures, snow, etc.), it is also the season for beanies. But with consistent hat wearing comes a serious problem: hat hair. You know when you step out of that hot hat and your hair is going all over the place, or, on the contrary, it looks like you’ve combed it with super glue? There is a solution, I promise you, that isn’t just getting your hair wet in the bathroom at your work or in the toilet at the back of the restaurant.

Try this tonic everyday by Companion, a chain of hairdressing salons-in-the-big-cities-turned-skincare-brand. It’s alcohol, paraben, and sulfate free – also vegan, which means it hasn’t been tested on animals – and it has a pleasant, all-natural barber shop scent; fresh and clean like a barbicide but more botanical (like ocean air, almost). Plus, the gentleman himself is super satisfying. It sprays an even but effective amount with an impressive consistency. You don’t tend to consider the actual applicator unless you’re talking about makeup, but it does make a difference.

It is also easy to use. Spray it several times on your stuck or stubborn hair. You don’t need to soak it, but make sure you use enough so that it has a real impact on its appearance. Then just beat it until it’s okay again. The formula reactivates styling products and refreshes even the most stale – never wear a cap all daytime? – Hair. And it’s not just a cosmetic solution. Aloe vera and bisobolol both alleviate drought; eucalyptus purifies dirt and debris; witch hazel absorbs oil; and vitamins A, C and E nourish the scalp. Since it is all natural, it never hurts to use it. Spray your hair as many times as you need. May the hair of the hat be cursed.

Everyday tonic

Each bottle is filled with 6.7 ounces of the substance. I’ve had mine for about a month and more than half of it remains. Of course, it’s too big for carry-on luggage, but you can still dose it in a smaller container.
