Feeling somewhat like a Victoria’s Secret Angel just got a little easier. You don’t need to go on any fad diets or slip on lacy lingerie. Instead, you can try out the latest hair offerings from Marajó. (Easy enough, right?) Victoria’ Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio was just named the face and ambassador for the new Brazilian beauty brand.
Everything from Marajó, which takes its name from an island north of Brazil, features one specific ingredient: pracaxi nut. Sourced from the island itself, pracaxi nut helps hydrate, soften, and heal hair. “Brazil has so many ingredients for skin and hair. Pracaxi is very nourishing, kind of like a new miracle oil,” Ambrosio told Women’s Wear Daily.
Marajó debuted this week with five easy-to-use products: Deep Treatment Butter, Anti-Frizz Smoothing Serum, Nourishing Cleansing Creme, 3-N-1 Finishing Spray, and Blow Out Styling Creme. Not only can you find pracaxi nut in its oil form in all of them, but the line is free of any parabens, too. Many of the product were made with damaged hair in mind, especially from heat styling and balayage. Alessandra Ambrosio knows this struggle well. “My hair goes through constant blow-drying and styling, and even my hairdresser says it feels softer now,” she explained to WWD. “The products don’t take the volume out of your hair, like many softening products tend to do.”
You can shop all of the products individually on marajo.com or sephora.com. I’m looking forward to trying out the Nourishing Cleansing Creme ($29) on my curly hair. Instead of creating a separate shampoo and conditioner, Marajó combined the two into one product that washes away dirt and grime while leaving hair touchably soft and smooth. That might not magically make my hair into long, beachy waves, but at least it won’t be frizzy.
Bundles of two to four products are also available on Marajó’s website and qvc.com. With them, you’ll save up to $54.
