BIG NEWS for all my David Babaii for Wild Aid hair care fans…

David Babaii shampoo at Drugstore.comDavid Babaii shampoo at Drugstore.com

Celebrity hairstylist David Babaii and actress Kate Hudson recently announced the launch of retail partnerships with select Target, CVS and Duane Reade stores beginning fall 2008 for their David Babaii for WildAid eco-friendly hair care line. Additional fine retail stores will begin distribution by the end of 2008 along with international expansion planned for 2009.

“We are thrilled to work with Target, CVS and Duane Reade since they provide consumers with an opportunity to buy professional grade products at cost effective prices.” commented Mr. Babaii. The partners also expressed the ease in which customers can purchase their hair care line through these retail outlets.
The David Babaii for WildAid web site offers store locations by simply typing in your zip code, State and mileage radius. It also provides product information and step-by-step styling tips to achieve Kate Hudson’s red carpet looks. The cruelty free hair care line supports wildlife conservation by donating 10% of all profits to WildAid, the Global Wildlife Conservation Organization.

It’s reasons like this that I’m so thankful for Target. Big brand names, salon quality products, unique skincare and cosmetics lines, and it’s just a local store. No battling the masses at the mall or pushy makeup counters!

If you can’t find the Wild Aid products locally, Drugstore.comDavid Babaii shampoo at Drugstore.com also carries the full lineup.

David Babaii for Wild Aid Hair Polish

by Bionic Beauty on 13.Nov.2008 · 2 comments

I previously reviewed David Babaii for Wild Aid’s Bohemian Beach Spray, now I’m here with a review of the Hair Polish from the same line. To sum it up? Another winner!

David Babaii for Wild Aid Hair Shine PolishDavid Babaii for Wild Aid Hair Shine Polish

The shine from this product is unbeatable and unlike many shine products it’s light-weight and hence, won’t weigh down fine hair. It adds a nice separation to strands and if applied before heat products works well to tame down any weather-related frizzies you might have. It comes packaged in a sterile pump bottle- and for medium length hair, 2 to 3 pumps should do you.

My only draw back to this product is the scent. I was hoping for something a bit more “natural” or herbal in keeping with the eco-friendly backing on this product, but instead it smells like powder. Baby powder. Which was a bit odd for a hair product. But it faded very quickly once applied to my hair.

Like all David Babaii products, the Hair Polish is cruelty-free (WOO!). Pick up a bottle at your local salon or just order it online from Drugstore.com for $14.95Buy David Babaii for Wild Aid Hair Polish.

David Babaii for Wild Aid Bohemian Beach Spray

by Bionic Beauty on 10.Sep.2008 · 5 comments

Many moons ago, John Frieda discontinued their much beloved Surf Spray and I’ve been on the hunt for a replacement product for years. Well, I can finally do my happy dance!

Celebrity stylist, David Babaii’s hair care line, Wild Aid (a green and eco-friendly brand created with friend and star, Kate Hudson) features a lovely product called Bohemian Beach Spray. This product is Kate’s secret to her beachy wavy twists. And it smells wonderful! A perfect combination of coconut and tropical with a note of floral and herbs.

David Babaii Wild Aid Bohemian Beach Spray

It’s simple to use, just spritz the Beach Spray into your hair (no need to over do it!) and twist into loose waves. I let them set for a few minutes while I do my makeup. Then before heading out the door, just loosen the twists by running your fingers through your hair. It also works nice as an afternoon restyler/refresher. For another idea on styling with the Beach Spray, have a look at the video I posted about a month ago.

You can purchase David Babaii’s Wild Aid products online at Drugstore.comDavid Babaii Wild Aid Bohemian Beach Spray or at a local salon. The Bohemian Beach Spray runs $11.95 for a 6.6 oz spray bottle (not a bad buy at all!).

I typically do not use a lot of styling products on my hair (usually just some shine serum), but this product is a keeper. I won’t be without it.

There’s quite a few gems in this video… Kate Hudson and David Babaii have teamed up for WildAid to offer an organic hair care line, plus get some tips on creating those highly sought after beachy-waves!
