From Brazil With Style

The Kalice line of products

As a lifestyle editor, I have the extraordinary good luck of being asked to try a variety of beauty products, and being a travel editor, I am also judging products on whether or not they are relatively compact and easy to take with you, especially when you just don't know what kind of toiletries await in your hotel room (or you simply like your own stuff!).

Recently, I was intrigued by an invitation to experience the INOAR product line. Being that this Brazilian line of haircare was until recently only found in professional salons piqued my interest, since salon products are always on a shelf of their own when it comes to quality ingredients and results.

An INOAR stylist, noting my hair tended to be on the fine and thinning side, used the company’s KALICE collection (yes, as a fan of Game of Thrones, I love the name, too). The shampoo and conditioner are designed for all hair types, and I loved the tantalizing ingredients, which included jasmine, almonds and rosemary vegetable oils—it just sounded like pure goodness for the hair. After the wash and condition and blowout, the stylist added a touch of INOAR Argan Oil for an additional sheen and softness, and indeed, my hair felt full and smooth to the touch.

Other collections include the POS Progress shampoo and conditioner (damaged and chemically treated hair); the Thermoliss Collection (frizzy hair), Divine Curls (for, yup curly hair) and Absolut Speed (for blonde hair). All of the bottles are lightweight and many only seven inches tall (again, suitcase-friendly!).

This one gets two thumbs up from me! You can purchase these products at
