Sixty years of hair care and it’s only getting better! In 1955, hairdresser to the stars Alberto and a talented chemist changed the world of hair care forever with the introduction of Alberto VO5. The name VO5 comes from the 5 Vitamin Oils that are included in every product and are essential for healthy, beautiful hair. Vitamin E, C, H, B5 and B3 make up the foundation of this popular brand and they still incorporate the basics today along with many other benefits that have been found to help hair along the way. I can really stand behind a company that keeps its basic elements for hair health while also researching and creating innovating new products with new and exciting added ingredients. 

I remember them best for their hot oil hair treatments that my mom used all the time when I was a kid. I had the pleasure of experiencing their VO5 Salon Series professional shampoos, conditioners, hair styling and treatments! The powerful, frizz fighting formula fortifies and moisturizes hair for salon beautiful results from roots to ends. Of course I had to indulge myself in their Hot Oil Therapy Moisturizing Treatments as well :)

I loved everything about the experience of washing my hair with these products. My hair felt instantly silky and it smelled amazing! My hair is still in recovery from my over-bleaching / burning off incident last summer so I have been seeking super thirst quenching, intensely hydrating hair care collections and this one is superb! My hair has never been so happy, healthy, shiny and manageable! This is only the beginning of my VO5 journey…

Alberto VO5 Salon Series hair care certified fabulousVO5 Salon Series Anti-Frizz & Shine Styling Cream

No more dull and unmanageable hair! This lightweight cream helps prep hair for the rigors of styling by nourishing hair, reducing frizz, and boosting shine and helps make styling your hair the least of your worries for the day. The rich, creamy texture saturated easily into my hair and gave it that extra smoothly, silky, shine boost it needed! It’s a complete invisible shield against heat styling and environmental stressors like sun and humidity. You can apply or wet or dry hair, but I liked using it after I towel dried my hair. I am strictly against blow drying because of the damage it causes to hair, but I must say I was pretty confident in using heat styling products once this was in my hair, I felt very protected.

VO5 Salon Series™ Perfect Hold Non-Aerosol Hairspray
Alberto VO5 Salon Series hair care certified fabulous hairspray

Providing a healthy shine that perfectly finishes any style this hairspray is my new go-to hair finisher! It has lasting control that brushes out easily so I don’t have to immediately wash my hair to get it out, I simple brush my hair before bed and I know it will stay healthy overnight opposed to sleeping with caked on product embedded in my hair. I love the flexible hold it gave me without looking like I had hairspray in. It was the only styling tool I used when I was in my friend’s wedding this past weekend :) Plus you don’t have to worry about leaving it in the hot car or in your suitcase, because it won’t explode under any pressure (like aerosol), hah.

VO5 Hot Oil Therapy Moisturizing Treatment

Last (but definitely not least) in my review of the collect, is the oil treatment I recall them being so famous for when I was a kid. Soothe your scalp and senses while moisturizing and conditioning hair from roots to ends, helping to restore shine, strength and silky softness. You absolutely can’t go wrong with this oil treatment. If you have severely damaged hair or want to serious PERFECT your locks, you NEED to use these treatments. It is made to help repair and condition damaged, over-processed or dry hair so it knows exactly how to treat and fix your hair back to normalcy. Tricks and tips to this oil:

  • USE BEFORE SHAMPOOING.Alberto VO5 Salon Series hair care certified fabulous hot oil treatment hair care

  • Wet hair. Massage contents of tube into hair. Leave on up to one minute. VO5 HOT OIL THERAPY works best when rinsed within one minute of application.
  • RINSE HAIR, scalp and skin thoroughly. Shampoo as usual.
  • STYLE. Use weekly or more often as needed.

With its unique IntelliFlex™ bristles, the Wet Brush runs effortlessly through hair, detangling without pulling or tugging. There’s no pain, no tears–whether the hair is wet from the shower or dry; curly or straight; thick or fine. Finally, the tears (and curses) stopped.

Creating other innovative new products like the Shine Brush, the Hot Brush, and the Blo Brush, this brand is like no other.

Sue Maesta Jane Hoods rickys nyc certified fabulous mixed animal print headband hair accessory


A stylish trend in hair for the fall is Sue Maesta Jane Hoods! Sue Maesta Hoods are a multi-use hair staple. Inspired by the runways of Milan, these hair wunderkinds can be stretched out to protect natural hair or styled as fun headbands. Whether worn at home or on the cement catwalk that is the streets of New York, the Sue Maesta Hood is the ultimate must-have. The particular one I had, the Jane Hood, is a sexy pink toned mixture of animal prints. There is an elastic side of the hood that is the part that holds your hair at the top and the rest flows down around your hair and head. It was a very soft material and it was SO comfortable to wear. Great for any activity you want to keep your hair or head protected. Fun at the beach, out for a jog or styled with your favorite jeans and T-shirt. This is a multi-use, style accessory you must have for the fall! Work it!
