Hair Products That Would Make You Say “Damn!”

First of all, remind me to NEVER grow my hair long! I don’t know what I was thinking growing it long again after 20+ years because it’s so high maintenance and I end up tying my tresses anyway. What’s the point, right? During my last trip to Bali, I had my hair cut short and to be honest, I feel like myself again.

Having a pixie cut for me is easy and low maintenance because I can wash and wear my hair easily. Also, with just a few spritzes of hair products, I can create different looks. It’s a quick and easy process.

Looking at my vanity table, I can honestly say that there is not one hair product that I own with packaging that stands out or should I say blends in with my other beauty products and perfume which have cool packaging until now. Thank you for introducing me to IGK Hair!

IGK is a team of four innovative stylists from various parts of the globe and vastly different backgrounds unified in a single vision: to create products designed to fit the lives and needs of the client.

The IGK mantra:

“Hairstyling for the modern generation.”


More than the cool branding, packaging and names (Rich Kid, Expensive, Jet Lag, Low Key, etc.) using these hair products I can easily style my hair to whatever mood I’m in.

Here’s a quick review of some of the IGK products I have and used:

Rich Kid | Coconut Oil Gel – This is the first product from the collection that I tried because of the interesting name and product description (oil gel?!). The smell is more fruity than coconuty and has the hold of a traditional hair gel without the stickiness. Perfect for that lived-in texture. Love this!

Expensive | Amla Oil High Shine Top Coat – Three words: UV protecting glaze. I use this product to seal the cuticles of my hair and to protect it from the harsh UV’s and heat tools. It’s a new conditioner-mask-gloss hybrid. Use it after shampoo and leave it on for 1-2 minutes. It detangles hair and leaves it super duper soft. As in! It has a super shiny finish (I’m not kidding!) and makes my hair look “expensive”!

Low Key | Cleansing Walnut Scalp Scrub – Props to the IGK team for thinking of my scalp! LOL! Seriously, caring for the scalp is the foundation of healthy hair. I love the soothing cooling scrub and it also conditions my scalp. I use this once or twice a week to give my head some lovin’. It contains apple cider vinegar which helps clarify the scalp and the walnut oil hydrates it.

Mistress | Hydrating Hair Balm – I’ve been swimming a lot this summer and while it cools me down, the chlorine in the pool has not been forgiving on my hair and leaves it dry and dull. I use this hydrating balm on my hair while it is still damp to hydrate and lock-in the moisture. No more straw-like hair!

Beach Club | Texture Spray – This is my favorite product in their line! Since I have fine hair, a few spritz of Beach Club gives my pixie cut instant texture and a bit of volume.

Thirsty Girl | Coconut Milk Leave-In Conditioner, 24-Hour Frizz Control – This is a very interesting hair product because of its Hyaluronic Acid Technology which is similar to skincare—it helps maintain moisture in your hair. I rarely use this product as I have fine, limp hair but it’s great for when I’m at the pool and I need quick conditioning for my hair.

First Class | Charcoal Detox (7%active cleansing powder), Dry Shampoo, Direct Flight | Multi-tasking Dry Shampoo (3%active cleansing powder) & Jet Lag | Invisible Dry Shampoo (1%active cleansing powder)

I’m one of those people who used to shampoo their hair everyday sometimes, twice a day. And why not? Living in the Manila means heavy pollution and a sweaty scalp. However, now that I work indoors most of the time, I sometimes wash my hair every other day to maintain the natural oils on my scalp. A quick spritz of any of these dry shampoos help freshen my hair.

In a nutshell: IGK Hair has cool packaging and modern formulations that offer high performance without compromise:

Cruelty free
Gluten free
No parabens or sulfates
UV and heat protection
Conditioning and color safe
Formulated without mineral oil
