Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Every once in a while a luxury haircare brand comes across my desk that utterly takes my breath away. This perfectly describes my reaction to the beautiful haircare products from Playa. Their performance driven products not only boast serious efficacy, but they are also filled with safe and healthy ingredients, delectable textures and aromas, and they are a serious pleasure to use. Not only do I love supporting eco-friendly brands, but it is also a serious pleasure to support local Los Angeles-based companies.

About Playa,

We created the Playa collection of essential hair products so you could have the best of both worlds: safety and performance. We’ve formulated each product to be different from anything else on the market so you get radical results with fewer products.

Our team of experts spent years researching alternatives to the harmful ingredients so often found in salon products. We’ve thoughtfully combined natural oils and botanicals with hand-selected clinically active ingredients for products that are truly transformative.

We love calling Venice Beach home, and our eclectic community continually inspires our products. While we spend most of our time working on Playa, living a balanced life is important to us. We don’t have an office, ride our bikes instead of drive, and get out to the water and surf every day we have waves.
Playa Pure Dry Shampoo ($24.00 for 4 oz. from Playa, Violet GreyShen Beauty, RevolveThe Dreslyn and Carbon Beauty Amazon Store): Dry shampoo enthusiasts really need this one! This decadent, and delectably aromatic, dry shampoo effectively absorbs oils, eliminates impurities and refreshes those tresses instantaneously! It is paraben and SLS-free, and is color-safe. Furthermore, it's filled with lots a great botanical ingredients, it isn't sticky, and it leaves hair touchably soft.

According to Playa,

This rare blend of botanicals and minerals refreshes and revitalizes hair instantly—no shower required. Rose powder invisibly absorbs excess oil at the roots while keeping hair soft; star anise extract treats scalp and eliminates impurities. Breathe body and life back into your hair naturally, whenever you’d like.

Playa Every Day Shampoo ($32.00 for 7.6 oz. from Playa, Violet Grey, Shen Beauty, RevolveThe Dreslyn and Carbon Beauty Amazon Store): This gentle, non-stripping shampoo, effectively cleans hair and leaves it hydrated and manageable without leaving behind any sort of oily residue. The light lather coupled with warm creamy aroma makes using this delectable shampoo a treat to the senses. I need to get the companion conditioner to experience the two together, but my guess is that it is just as incredible as the shampoo.

Playa Ritual Hair Oil ($38.00 for 1.35 oz. from Playa, Violet Grey, Shen Beauty, RevolveThe Dreslyn and Carbon Beauty Amazon Store): Be still my beating heart was the only way to describe my reaction when I first opened this fetching golden elixir. Given my penchant for luxury oils, this was most certainly my most eagerly anticipated product from Playa. The first thing that I noticed when I opened this bottle was its addictive otherworldly aroma: It is deep, warm, creamy and intoxicatingly beautiful. After luxuriating in the scent, I was swept away by its refined and silky-smooth texture. It is feather-weight and it quickly penetrates and nourishes  the hair, and does so without the use of any silicones. Instead it is filled with natural oils, that are suspended in an ultra-hydrating base of coconut oil, and together they tame frizz and fly-ways, soften and hydrate the hair, and leave hair smooth and shiny. Hair is neither weighed down, nor is it left feeling oily. This hair oil is utter perfection.
