Squalane, panthenol, lactic acid — nope, these aren’t the ingredients in our new favorite facial serum. All of these beloved skin-care ingredients have made their way into the newest hair and scalp products launching in November.
For instance, R+Co just released a conditioner spiked with vitamin E, and snow mushroom appears on the ingredient list for Act + Acre‘s latest launch. And don’t even get us started on the number of products bringing panthenol (a.k.a. vitamin B5) to the hair-care game. Fekkai, Geologie, and Function of Beauty are just a few that have made it happen.
A couple of months ago, Allure reported on the skin-careification of haircare, and this month’s launches truly prove that this phenomenon is here to stay. All of these nourishing ingredients help improve scalp health in the same ways they do so for our complexions. Keep scrolling to learn more about how haircare brands made them work in their newest formulas. And if you want to know about how the same ingredients are popping up in the best makeup and skin-care launches for November, click on over to those lists.
Function of Beauty Custom Styling Primer
The new Function of Beauty Custom Styling Primer combines everything you need for your hair post-wash into one versatile spray-on formula. You take an easy quick to determine the exact combination of ingredients, like rice protein and vitamin B5, your specific hair needs depending on its texture, color, and concerns, like frizz control, heat protection, and volumizing.
Superzero Clarifying Shampoo Bar
Looking for new ways to go plastic-free with your haircare routine? Perhaps the Superzero Clarifying Shampoo Bar will fit into your product lineup. Once a week, lather up this soap-like disc before massaging the bubbles onto your scalp to help break down product buildup and excess oil for fresher, fuller hair.
Ranavat Regenerative Veda⁴ Bond Complex Shampoo and Conditioner
South Asian-founded brand Ranavat’s first foray into shampoo and conditioner brings major strength, shine, and softness to hair with just one wash. The new Veda⁴ Bond Complex duo is spiked with dreamy ingredients, like pink lotus, hibiscus, and ashwagandha, to do so. Amla, a highly sought-after oil made out of Indian gooseberry, even makes an appearance to keep your scalp happy and promote hair growth.
Curls Big Blue Blueberry Bliss Reparative Hair Mask
When your hair is long and curly, you run through hair masks fast. Allow the Curls Big Blue Blueberry Bliss Reparative Hair Mask to keep your stash stocked longer. The 24-ounce tub packs three times more than the original but has the same deeply nourishing results.
The Beachwaver Co. Beachwaver B1 Glitter Ceramic Rotating Curling Iron
Selling Sunset’s Christine Quinn teamed up with The Beachwaver Co. for the hot tool of your holiday dreams. The popular rotating curling iron brand took its beloved Beachwaver B1 and gave it a glittery makeover for the occasion. You can pick from either the glitzy black or pink colorway. Quinn recently told Allure that she’s been into middle parting her hair and using her very own Beachwaver to curl under her ends.
R+Co Lost Treasure Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner
Typically, good ole ACV makes its way into hair rinses to help soothe the scalp, decrease dandruff, and reduce frizz. However, for the lightweight R+Co Lost Treasure Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner, it helps to lower pH and add shine alongside nourishing almond milk, vitamin E, and biotin.
Goldie Locks Brilliant Blonde Purple Shampoo
By now, if you’re blonde, you’re probably well aware that washing your hair with purple-toned shampoo neutralizes brassiness. However, the gorgeous Goldie Locks Brilliant Blonde Purple Shampoo does so with the help of the natural pigmentation of blueberry and purple yam extracts and deeply moisturizes with sunflower and avocado oils. It’s even formulated to be safe enough to use with hair extensions.
Jennifer Behr Orion Bow Barrette
The new Jennifer Behr Orion Bow Barrette brings together the brand’s best-selling hair accessory with its Best of Beauty-winning bobby pins for a simply celestial splurge. No matter what your astrological sign is, it’s the perfect early holiday gift for yourself or something to keep in mind for your friends and family.
Saltair Moisture Bound Conditioner
As temperatures start dropping, hair tends to dry out more and more. Keep your hair’s winter blues at bay with the Saltair Moisture Bound Conditioner. Just a couple of pumps from the luxe aluminum bottle are all you need to instantly hydrate, detangle, and smooth your hair with hefty doses of softening monoi oil, shine-inducing squalane (which is typically a moisturizing skin-care ingredient), and conditioning rice protein.
Fekkai Super Strength+ Protein Powerbond Mist
Whether you color your hair or it’s particularly fragile, the Fekkai Super Strength+ Protein Powerbond Mist is sure to bring in some major ammunition to keep breakage and brittleness from happening via the power of panthenol (a.k.a. vitamin B5), amino acids, Edelweiss extract, argan oil, and — once again — rice protein. Just spray it onto wet or damp hair once or twice a week to reap its rewards.
Geologie Strengthening Shampoo
Speaking of vitamin B5, you can also find the healing and hydrating ingredient in the new Geologie Strengthening Shampoo. It joins forces with lactic acid, another popular skin-care ingredient, to gently exfoliate your scalp, so your hair can grow in healthier and stronger.
Lele Sadoughi Technicolor Crystal Mesh Alice Headband
For the brand’s holiday collection, Lele Sadoughi took inspo from the disco era with ultra-glam sequined and bejeweled headbands like this mirror-balled-out version of the signature Alice Headband. No matter where you wear this, the whole place is sure to shimmer. (Sorry, we had to.)
Act + Acre Cold Processed Leave-In Conditioner
Snow mushroom and squalane are the stars of the new Act + Acre Cold Processed Leave-In Conditioner. Just as they do in skin-care form, they infuse hair with moisture and lock it in. Plus, in this hair-care format, they smooth out frizz and keep hair tangle-free until your next wash.
