4 must-have products
It’s safe to say Derek has a slight obsession with Jack Black. Ever since I came home with their infamous Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 with Shea Butter & Vitamin E a few years ago, he keeps his bathroom stocked of JB goodies. I swear I got to use that lip balm twice and then it went “missing”, pretty sure he hid it so he could keep it all to himself? Jack Black has done an excellent job at creating a brand for those men that don’t like to spend a ton of time in front of the mirror, but still want to look good. Each product is convenient and multi-functional to get him in and out of the bathroom as quickly as possible without sacrificing effectiveness.
As much as he loves the entire lineup of both skincare, shaving care, body essentials and fragrances, today’s Manly Monday post is all about haircare. Derek has rounded up his 4 must-have products to keep your man’s hair clean, conditioned and styled to the nine. Each product is lightweight, non-greasy, and formulated with the finest, natural ingredients (Organic Basil Leaf, Green Tea and Grape Seed Oils) to keep your man feeling confident and stylish from morning till night.
Jack Black True Volume Thickening Shampoo with Expansion Technology, Basil & White Lupine is Derek’s first step in achieving perfectly shiny, strong and healthy hair. It’s formulated with a blend of botanical and thickening ingredients to help keep hair healthy and full. It also contains pro-vitamin B5, Biotin and Green Tea Leaf to not only add shine, but it strengthens, repairs and stimulates hair follicles for healthier growth with each use.
Jack Black True Volume Thickening Shampoo with Expansion Technology, Basil & White Lupine comes in a large deep emerald green pump-style bottle with a slightly thick, creamy, gel-like consistency to it. It lathers fairly well with only the smallest amount, deeply cleanses the hair of dirt, oil and product buildup, yet washes clean away. It helps to detangle hair for easy brushing and styling, while adding a ton of shine and life back into each strand. It also helps to create slightly more volume for touchably full and soft hair in a completely weightless formula. It has a manly, yet herbal and minty scent that is quite refreshing and lingers on the hair for a few hours after each wash. It retails for $32 for 473ml.
Jack Black Nourishing Hair and Scalp Conditioner with Tea Tree Oil & Basil Leaf is a brand new conditioner that’s formulated with proteins, vitamins, natural oils and botanical extracts to help detangle and add shine to even the most unruly, coarse and curly hair. Not only does it help to add volume, deeply hydrate and reduce frizz, it actually helps to strengthen and repair, while improving elasticity to help prevent future breakage.
Jack Black Nourishing Hair and Scalp Conditioner with Tea Tree Oil & Basil Leaf comes in a squeeze tube with a slightly thicker, rich and more creamy texture than the shampoo. Although it’s highly hydrating and extremely moisturizing, it’s still incredibly lightweight. It helps to not only seal in moisture for a velvety smooth look and feel, it provides high shine and reduces frizz and fly-a-ways. It deeply penetrates into the hair to reduce dryness and itchiness without feeling greasy or weighted down. It instantly absorbs into the hair cuticles to help detangle any knots, making it more manageable and easier to style. It retails for $22.50 for 295ml.
Jack Black Body-Building Hair Gel with Grapefruit & Ginger comes with a new and improved formula that provides even longer-lasting hold with all day control without the crunch. Its formulated with organic basil leaf, organic kelp and ginger root to add both body, volume and shine, while keeping hair nourished and healthy.
Jack Black Body-Building Hair Gel with Grapefruit & Ginger also comes in a squeeze tube with an incredibly lightweight, gel-like texture that dries completely without a sticky, greasy or oily residue. It provides the hold Derek needs without weighting his hair down or leaving it feeling or looking crunchy or stiff. He works a dime size amount into damp hair and styles as normal. It retails for $16 for 96g.
Jack Black Wax Pomade with Natural Shine and Flexible Hold will help polish and smooth hair into place with a flexible level of hold for a natural, shiny finish. It can be used to polish, control frizz or to smooth hair into desired style. It can also double as taming and conditioning his beard and mustache hairs.
Although the Jack Black Wax Pomade with Natural Shine and Flexible Hold is quite thicker and firmer than the gel, its hold is actually slightly lighter and provides more of a natural look, which Derek quite enjoys. It gives that “just rolled out of bed look”, but fresh, sleek and polished. It helps to hold each hair in place with pliable, high-shine finish and is perfect for busy mornings. He just applies a small amount on slightly damp or dry hair, styles and go. It keeps his hair looking sensational all day, without having to reapply more product. Not only does it provide optimum hold, it’s easy to sculpt and style and add a little life back to full, dry and damaged hair. It’s easy to rinse off at the end of the day without stripping his hair of natural oils, or leaving it feeling dry or greasy. It retails for $25 for 77g.
