Can deep conditioner also be a charity?
David Babaii thinks so. The stylist responsible for the good hair days of Angelina, Liv, and Nicole just launched a new line of products with proceeds going to WildAid, the organization stopping illegal poaching and trapping around the world.
Made with entirely organic - and vegan - ingredients, the collection was tested entirely on Kate Hudson, who's one of David's biggest fans. "He's put so much of himself into the line, and the fact that we can do it in an ecologically responsible and animal-friendly manner makes this truly special," she says.
But everything looks good on Kate Hudson. The real question was, could the new hair stuff work on us?
For the most part, absolutely. We loved Babaii's Bohemian Beach Spray, a mix of hemp and cucumber that added shine and wavy texture. The Light Styling Spray was also a hit, especially when used with a flatiron to get stick-straight results. But the Volcanic Ash Sculpting Clay was slightly heavy, leaving curls crunchy when they dried. On the upside: it smells like mango, and would be good for slicking hair into a tight bun.
Babaii for WildAid retails for about $20 per product. And besides having Kate as the model, it's also got a NYLON tie: While developing the new line, David styled Scarlett Johansson for last summer's cover!
