Discovering the Most-Wanted Haircare Products to shop at Sephora
Jul. 1, 2020
It’s a well known and acknowledged truth: Sephora is the Disneyland of Beauty.
Walking through the doors of its malls is like entering a beauty oasis, made of amazing smells, bright colors, millions of beauty products and any kind of beauty tool. Sephora is the place where the beauty and makeup lovers can find almost everything they need and are looking for (and, in most cases, much more than that).
And what about haircare? Is Sephora a good place to shop the latest trends of curls and coils?
Yes, it definitely is.
While at first glance it may seem like Sephora has barely anything for the haircare, it actually carries some of the biggest and best brands made specifically for the care of the hair.
Let’s discover 5 of the best-selling Sephora picks you may want to know more about.
“A commitment to alternative beauty has been at the heart of the Alterna story since we debuted in 1997”
This is the brand mission we read in the website of the luxury haircare brand, founded in California more that 20 years ago and committed to creating innovative haircare and styling products, inspired by skincare science and formulated with pure and effective ingredients.
Since the very beginning of its journey, the company has been a pioneer in offering “Alterna-tive” yet high-performing haircare products, all formulated with sustainable and eco-certified ingredients: Caviar, Seasilk, Bamboo, Kendi Oil and more.
Today Alterna offers a wide range of products, whose formulas are a cutting-edge fusion of nature and science, aimed at delivering the maximum impact on hair with the minimum impact on environment. That’s why Alterna products are free of gluten, sulfates, parabens and synthetic colors, and are never tested on animals.
Alterna’s green-yet-luxury commitment teaches a significant lesson: chemicals do not belong to our hair, pure Caviar extract does.
“Noblesse de hair” exists and in Bevery Hills they know it.
Founded in 2011 by a color enthusiast entrepreneur, Donna Pohlad, CEO of the company, alongside with A-list celebrity colorist Justin Anderson, dpHUE is the leading player in the next generation of hair dye and color products industry.
With products like Root Touch-Up Kit, Color Touch-Up Spray and the best selling Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse, dpHUE has a unique role in the haircare industry panorama, being the only brand dedicated solely to professional color maintenance.
“Fresh color between salon visits” is the promise that dpHUE makes to its customers and the goal which the company has been able to achieve thanks to its super-luxury and high-performance hair colors and haircare products, made with the highest quality and best performing ingredients.
Dull hair, don’t care! dpHUE nourishing products are specifically formulated to help keeping the color fresh and gorgeous. Whenever, wherever.
It was during his time in the Amazonian Rainforest, while doing humanitarian work with the local tribes, that the New York hair stylist Fabian Lliguin first met the legendary oil that the women of the Quechua-Shuar tribe consider the secret of their thick, soft and shiny hair.
Intrigued by the power of the Amazonian precious ingredient, Fabian and his wife studied the effects of the oil on their clients’ hair and were amazed at its revitalizing properties. And this is where it all began.
Rahua (pronounced rah-wa) is the name of the high-quality oil, which the people of Quechua-Shuar tribe obtain from the ungurahua nut through a long and extremely time intensive process of manual extraction (it can take up to a month for the golden oil of the rahua nut to appear).
And today Rahua gives the name to the beautiful brand that Fabian and his wife Anna founded in New York: a luxurious collection of 100% natural hair and body products, all infused with the Rahua oil and all made with the purest rainforest ingredients. Learning from the techniques of the Amazonian people, the Rahua products are all made by organic ingredients which are sustainably grown and harvested by the indigenous community.
Much more than being just a beauty brand, Rahua is very popular for its philanthropic commitment dedicated to supporting the indigenous tribes of the Amazonian rainforest and to sustaining its eco-system.
When Beauty works behind the scenes.
Minimalist, fresh, simple yet elegant and stylish. This is Sachajuan in a nutshell.
The brand of the “uncomplicated beauty” was founded in 1997 by Sacha Mitich and Juan Rosalind, who one day combined their names and opened an hair salon in Stockholm. Their first line of haircare products came just a few years later, in 2004.
Sacha and Juan main aim was to make haircare as simple as possible, creating high quality and effective products that could be “easy to use”.
While many brands today continue to complicate their vision and mission in order to be more appealing and interesting, Sachajuan is taking a totally different direction: its philosophy is based on simplicity and on a easy-yet-powerful balance between quality and innovation. And this is exactly what they are doing today: they are combining simplicity and function effortlessly with high quality and innovation.
Their minimal yet elegant packaging reflects their feeling about styling hair and haircare products: they have to be highly performing and effective but intuitively easy to use.
Take (and make) it easy!

Clear Hydrated Skin The Clean Way✨
Staying in the trend of clean beauty, I have found an amazing product to add to my everyday routine. Odacité SKINCARE - Blue Aura Cleansing Water This is a cleansing water that is marketed to use in place of your cleanser for a “quick” clean. When looking for a good cleansing water, you want one that is hydrating and gets your face clean. Keep in mind not all cleansing waters are designed to clean makeup (I highly recommend a cleansing balm and cleanser). About This Brand: ✨Vegan ✨Cruelty Free ✨Certified Organic ✨ NO: Fillers | Parabens | Nanoparticles | Petrochemicals | PEG | Synthetic perfumes | Dyes | Phenoxyethanol. This cleansing water is so hydrating and satisfying to use. It smells very fresh and a little goes a long way. What is very important to me is my dry spot aren’t tight or irritated. I have been using this day and night and have seen amazing results acne and skin barrier wise. I included this in my routine after a regular cleanser and before my serums. So essentially, I use this as a “toner”. I do this to clean up anything my cleanse left behind, or the cleanser itself. INGREDIENTS: ✨Tumeric: Amazing for hyperpigmentation and overall skin brightness ✨Holy Basil: I drink the tea and can vouch this is an amazing adaptogen that can overall benefit every aspect of your life. It combats aging and free radical damage. ✨Neem: great anti aging ingredient that helps protects your skin barrier. ✨Aloe Vera Juice: this is great for your skin barrier overall. It hydrated, protects and brightens. I highly recommend this cleansing water and it is on sale for $9 at Boxycharm Pop Up 🥰🥰
A Journey of Self 🌹
I figured Black History Month was as good as any opportunity to talk about my self finding. Growing up in a small yet old family, I always had questions about my roots and family history. I also struggled with self conscious doubts about my appearance. Why is my nose this big? Why is my hair this curly? Why am I taller than average? These weighed heavy on my mind growing up because honestly, sticking out sucked. So, I finally dove deep into my family’s origin and decided to do an Ancestry DNA analysis. I immersed myself with every corner of the site. I only got the chance to finish my maternal grandmas side of the family tree, but even that has plenty of gaps. Yet, when I received my DNA results I was stoked. Then I realized, I don’t know much about any of these places. So I dug even deeper. I have a little journal of things I’ve learned and want to know, but this was quite the experience. It was heartbreaking and satisfying at the same time. I highly recommend for every race and background to do this DNA Test. The best part of this was scrolling through photos of the people of the respected countries I was DNA matched to. I swear I saw a girl who looked like me, but everyone else thinks I’m tripping lol. In the end, I’m satisfied with my results and findings. Relatively speaking, this way of self discovery has been the most effective.
Do It All Toner 🍃🍃
I have been loving the brand Truly lately ✨ I recently purchased this: 🍃TRULY - CBD Jelly Toning Solution 🍃 And it’s by far one of my favorite toners. Ingredients: 💚100MG CBD 💚Glycolic Acid 💚Tea Tree Oil 💚Organic Aloe 💚Rose Petal Extract This brand is also: 💚Vegan 💚Cruelty Free 💚Clean I use this every other night and it as tremendously helped my skin barrier and acne. I was really concerned about the glycolic acid irritating or drying my skin but it didn’t at all 🤩 I highly recommend this to combo and oily , acne prone skin. This will be a toner I keep in my night routine. I got it from Ulta (of course) for $24 (I paid $15 after coupons) Do you use CBD products? 🍃
Clear skin the gentle way?
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?
DISAPPOINTED BY THESE 100% NATURAL PRODUCTS 😩
I was so excited to try these out because I love moisturizers & I am always in search of a good one! These looked & sounded very promising! They’re from a woman owned company, completely natural, vegan, & cruelty free! However, I was quite disappointed. EARTH HARBOR - MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer This moisturizer claims to give you a glow right away & it contains spirulina + matcha. I was excited about the matcha because it has so many amazing benefits for skin. It has a very whipped consistency which I like. However it always contains essential oils that were strong, although not toooo strong for my liking. But I’m really just not a fan of essential oils in my face creams. The moisturizer did make my skin appear a little brighter but the cream just sat on my face. All day long I could touch my face & still feel the cream sitting there! I hate that feeling! It also almost gave me a greasy appearance after a while? Not a fan. EARTH HARBOR - SIREN SILK Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme This one was absolutely awful. If I could give it 0 stars I would. It says to use it at night time & the apply it at least 5 minutes before bed so it can absorb on your face & not your pillow. It contains Sea Retinol + other Superherbs which normally make me love a product! But that just wasn’t enough here. First, when I put it on my face my eyes started to actually burn & I felt suffocated from the scent. It was THAT strong. Guys, I’m not being dramatic at all. The smell like attacked me it was crazy! I have never had something like that happen with a face cream! I couldn’t believe how strong the fragrance was. & to top it off, it wasn’t even a pretty smell. My husband described it as smelling like floor cleaner. But I powered through. The longer I had it on, the more “used” to the smell I got. So, I wore it overnight. But then I woke up even more upset with it! I had pilling all over my face. It almost looked like my face was peeling but it wasn’t, it was jus the cream. One thing I cannot stand about a moisturizer is pulling. That’s enough for me to throw it out! It also didn’t really even moisturize my face that well! All in all, I hated this experience. But if you want, you should try them out for yourself, don’t let my experience deter you from trying something new! I however, will be sticking with my Youth To The People Dream Mask & Superfood Whipped Moisturizer! Love those two!! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream 💗💗💗 @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
