Favorite Product For The New Year!

9 Jan

I am hooked on Bumble Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil ($38 http://www.bumbleandbumble.com)! I have been using it for two weeks and it has 100% changed how my hair feels! It is for anyone that wants to reduce frizz, tame flyaways, add shine and strengthen hair against breakage. I apply before I blow dry and it leaves my hair smooth and soft and SOOOO easy to manage. You can also use a little when your hair is dry to help manage flyways. It is oil so you don’t want to over do it! The product is a blend of oils that help you to manage your hair better while it is wet and keep it looking great when it is dry! If you have a hard time blow-drying your hair, give this a try! It helps to keep hair tangle free and smooth during the process. It is a product that everyone has to have to for the new year!

Clarify Your Hair

3 Mar

Once a week I need to use a clarifying shampoo on my hair.  It helps to remove all of the build-up from styling products and it makes it feel really clean.  I have tried a lot of the different kinds, but my favorite and most effective is Nexxus Replenishing Color Assure Shampoo ($10 www.nexxus.com).  You do not have to have color-treated hair to use this either.  This shampoo will remove all the build-up in your hair giving it back that “light” clean feeling. It also has B-5 vitamins and UV protectors which are good for both color-treated and non-colored hair.  These two things will help keep your hair strong and protect it from the harmful rays of the sun.  I use this shampoo at least once a week, more if I have those days when my hair feels really greasy.  There is a conditioner that goes with this shampoo, but I like to use one of my regular favorites.  The great thing is that you can find this brand at your local drugstore or Target, so no need to go on a special trip to find it.  I think you will like how clean this makes your hair feel and how long the bottle last you.  Everyone should have a great clarifying shampoo in their toolkit and this one is my favorite!  Enjoy!

Don’t Wash Out Your Hair Color!

14 Feb

There are a million shampoo and conditioner lines out there that help maintain hair  color.  I have tried a lot  of different ones and have loved them or hated them for different reasons.  The one that I am really liking right now is Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner ($30 www.pureology.com).  When you use these products on while you are washing your hair, you don’t see color running out down the drain.  It also makes your hair very soft and shiny.  It does have a botanical smell but it does not linger on your hair.  I really like that is has peppermint in it, it leaves your scalp feeling refreshed.  The product has zero sulfates which can strip hair color and it also has a special Anti-Fade Complex which helps maintain hair color longer.  If you have tried a lot of different “Color Saving” shampoos and conditioners, this is one you should try.  It will leave your hair shiny and your color will remain in tact!

All Over Volume Boosting Shampoo and Conditioner

16 Jan


If you need to add volume to your hair you should start with Sebastian Professional Volupt Shampoo and Conditioner  ($17 each www.sebastianprofessional.com).  This is  the first volumizing shampoo and conditioner that gave my hair volume all over and not just at the roots.  Usually when I use other volume boosting shampoo and conditioning products I have to use volume styling products with it, with these two products you do not have  to use  anything!  You simply wash your hair as you usually do and then blow dry and your hair is so BIG!  I was amazed at the all over body my hair had.  I have thin hair and a lot of volume boosting products make your hair  greasy, this product has a great smell and leaves your hair feeling clean.  I recommend this if you struggle with getting volume in your hair.  This is also a color-safe product which is an additional benefit.   I have been using this for the past two weeks and I have all ready recommended this to several people.   This will surely give you the boost you need!!

Shiny Hair Fast!

14 Jan


A lot of people ask my how I get my hair so shiny…the secret is Frederic Fekkai Salon Glaze ($28 www.fekkai.com).  It is an at home non-chemical treatment that you can do while you are in the shower.  It will make your hair shiny in about two uses and it really makes your hair color more vibrant!  How I use it is I wash my hair with my shampoo and conditioner as usual, then I get out as much excess water from my hair as I can.  Then  I apply the glaze to my hair, if you have a wide tooth comb, use it to comb the glaze evenly through your hair.  If your hair is long, I recommend clipping it up while you leave the treatment on.  Then you leave the treatment on for about 5 minutes, during this time I shave my legs or something to kill the time.  Then you simply rinse the glaze out of your hair.  You will feel that your hair already feels instantly softer and when you blow dry you will notice that it is a lot more shiny.  After I used this for about a week I started getting a lot of compliments on how great my hair looked.  I recommend this for anyone especially people with long hair!

If You Can’t Dye Them…Hide Them!

5 Jan

For anyone with color treated hair, it is always a pain when your roots start to show….My hair color is pretty close to my natural hair color but sometimes in the front I need a little “touch up” on the roots just until the next time I go into the salon.  I have tried hair powder, pens, eyeshadow etc. to try to get the best thing to cover my roots.  One day while searching on the internet, I came across Color Mark Pro ($22 www.colormarkpro.com).  It is an amazing root touch up that is a liquid!  It goes on really smooth with a wand that looks like a lip gloss applicator.  I have found this to be the best because when it dries you don’t have any residue and you can’t tell anything is on your hair.  It simply blends in with your hair and washes out with your next shampoo.  It doesn’t have any harsh chemicals so there will be no damage to your hair.  You can even brush your hair after it dries and it will remain in place.   It dries in about 60 seconds so you don’t have to wait forever before you finish styling your hair.  There are 12 shades that come in a range from black, blonde, red, and brunette.  I have had my bottle for about a year and I still have plenty left!  If you need that quick touch up give this a try, it is a little blessing in disguise!
