Perhaps the best-kept secret in hair care is Aquage’s line of Strengthening and Silkening shampoos and conditioners. If you have been coloring your hair, chances are, your hair’s been stripped of its natural protective layers. Formulated with patented sea botanicals, Aquage’s line of Strengthening Shampoos and Conditioners brings back the protection you need and at the same seals and extends the color you have on.

The same principle goes with the Silkening line, but they are formulated specifically for coarse and curly hair. If you like your conditioner thick and gloopy without weighing your hair down, then this is the product for you. A little goes a long way! I personally use the Silkening formula for my curls and the softness is unbelievable. The scent is clean and fresh, and unlike your regular drugstore brands, the softness lasts for days. It’s like a continuous deep conditioning treatment. It’s so effective some hairdressers even recommend the Silkening formula for clients with straight hair! Aquage also has a line of great styling products, but if you can only buy one out of the entire range, the conditioner is really a must-try.

This little-known brand flies under the radar even here in the US. It is hard to find in retail — even in the most extensive beauty stores. I often get customers sighing in relief when they learn that the salon where I work at carries Aquage! – Jesse Alvior

Aquage is available at or at Tortola Salon, 28 Ericsson Place, New York
