This Hair Cream Is a Blowout in a Bottle

The word “multitasking” gets thrown around a lot in the world of hair care styling products. So much so that it’s sometimes really difficult to find products that do one thing—and do it right.

René Furterer’s new Control Emulsion ($28) is not one of those products; in fact, it does so many amazing things that it doesn't even fall into one of the standard hair care categories.

It’s technically a styling cream, and successfully defines and de-frizzes wavy and even the hardest-to-control curly hair when you apply it to damp hair. But, it’s not sticky or stiff and as soon as you apply it, you know this is something different. Your hair feels immediately softer, silkier and more hydrated, but it still has a little bit of that “grip” that beachy waves and blowouts need to actually last more than five minutes.

Like a true multitasker, it also adds a bit of shine and leaves strands with a sophisticated (and not-in-your-face) fresh fragrance that lasts until you wash your hair again.
