I Just Went to Paris, and Every French Girl Is Using These Hair Products

I recently went on a trip to Paris, and while I was there, I spent my days wandering the city, eating my weight in foods that were likely composed of 80% butter, and browsing French pharmacies to stock up on Biafine.

In between destinations, I stopped at many cafés to people-watch, and while I was sipping espresso and drooling over the fashion, something else kept catching my eye—the hair. French women know hair in a way that we don't in America. In France, hair is best left natural and slightly tousled for a chic, undone vibe. Everyone's strands made me want to throw out my hair spray immediately.
