Take It Off!! FOREVER!!

Ok…so I never thought an “at home” laser treatment would really work but…IT DOES!! I have been using the Silk’n Flash&Go All-Over Hair Removal Device ($299 http://www.silkn.com) since the beginning of December and I have had amazing results! I have been using this on my underarms and bikini area and all the hair that I have been “removing” is gone!! All you do is choose your setting between 1-5, 5 being the strongest and then you aim the light on the area and press the “trigger” and the light flashes. Then you move on to the next spot. Your legs will take longer but you can do your arms and bikini area in less than 10 minutes! It is not painful at all! I do it on setting 5 and you feel a little heat pressure and a strong pulse, no pain that is unpleasant like waxing or epilating. When you compare the one time price of this machine to the price of the several professional sessions you would have to purchase, this is totally worth it!!! I recommend this for anyone that hates shaving, waxing, tweezing and has unwanted hair!!

Favorite Product For The New Year!

9 Jan

Bumble-and-bumble-Hairdressers-Invisible-Oil
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!

Save Your Ends

24 Nov

So, I have been MIA but I have been trying out some new products and have found some AWESOME ones!!  I am someone who is addicted to my flat-iron and I color my hair so of course I have to protect my hair from split ends.  I have been using Kerastase Fibre Architecte ($42 www.kerastase-usa.com) on my ends for the past three months and let me tell you, I have decreased the amount of split ends I normally get by about 90%!  I usually look down at my hair and think “AHHH!”  but now I am hunting just to find one split end to disprove that this product works…  The product is a repairing serum that you use on wet hair before you blow dry or heat style.  You only need a small amount and you only need to put it on your ends.  The trick is, when you press the pump you need to make sure you press it evenly because it is a dual chamber so you are getting two products coming out at once.  I like it because it doesn’t leave your hair feeling greasy and it makes it shiny.  This is a must have product for anyone with long hair or with problems with split ends.  It will allow you to go longer between haircuts and you can continue to use all of your heat styling tools!

Smooth Infusion

12 Jul

I am always testing new hair products and my recent favorite for the summer is from Aveda.  It is their Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother ($24 www.aveda.com).  In the summer I have to battle the humidity especially when I straighten my hair.  This product helps defend against humidity for up to 12 hours!  I put this on wet hair after I put on all my other styling products and use a wide tooth comb to get this distributed evenly throughout my hair.  Then I blow dry and use my flat-iron as needed.  Your hair is smooth and sleek for the whole day!  I wash my hair every other day and this product does not make your hair feel oily or heavy.  You can definitely go without washing your hair and feel comfortable.  I did have to get used to the smell.  Most Aveda products come from plants and they smell very “earthy”, they don’t smell bad, but I am one of those girls that loves floral “girly” smells so this took some getting used too.  The good thing is the smell goes away so you don’t smell it on your hair all day.  Other people I know that use it love the smell because it is that natural citrus “woodsy” smell…”to each their own” as I say.  In any case, if you fight humidity or just want to get your dry hair looking smooth, give this a try, you won’t be disappointed!

Shea Butter Your Hair With Moisture

17 May

I am an official Frederic Fekkai hair product junkie!  I have something if not most everything from all of his different collections.  I use them on a regular rotation as they are all intended for a different use.  However, one of my favorites is the Essential Shea Collection ($25-$35 www.fekkai.com).  This collection smells amazing and it absolutely revives your hair with moisture.  I use the shampoo and conditioner once or twice a week depending on how “dry” my hair is feeling.  Since I have fine hair, if I use it more than that, my hair gets weighed down and gets oily.  I like to use the cream on the ends of hair which makes my hair really soft and the smell is divine!  Every other week or so I use the hair mask.  You leave this on for at least 15 minutes, I leave it on all night sometimes…then you wash your hair as usual and it will come out more soft than ever before!  I can’t say one bad thing about this collection.  If you need moisture for your hair or have damaged hair then I would definitely try the hair mask.  If you need to add some moisture into your routine then try using the shampoo and conditioner once or twice a week.  You will see results after the first use and the smell is heavenly which makes you want to use it more.  Who knew shea butter was as good for the hair as it is for the skin?!?!?

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!

A Moroccan Vacation

28 Dec

 

I am sure you are using or have heard about the Moroccan Oil hair products.  I have a sister that is an esthetician and she works in a salon that started carrying the products months ago.  She has been using them and has recommended that myself and my other sisters try it too.  So, I have been looking for something to help fight breakage since I am addicted to my flat-iron, and my hairstylist recommended trying the Moroccan Oil Treatment.  I have thin hair and I wash it every other day, I have to be careful about what products I put in it because they can make it greasy.  So, the idea of putting OIL in my hair made me a little nervous but I thought I would give it a try.  The Moroccan Oil Treatment comes in both the regular and light formula.  I bought the light formula since it is for Fine Color Treated Hair.  After washing my hair I just put a small, and I mean TINY amount on my finger tips and only apply to the ends of hair and then comb through.  Then you can style as usual.  After using the oil my hair was soft, smooth, and so SHINY!  The website says that the oil helps to control frizz, protects hair from environmental damage, detangles hair, smooths and shines hair, softens thick unruly hair, repairs damaged hair, nourishes scalp, and increases hair elasticity.  The oil is rich in vitamins and antioxidants and it is a treatment you can use everyday.  I recommend using this product because it really gives you the hair your see in magazines ads and it makes your hair so soft and shiny even after just one use!  Give your hair a vacation and take it to Morocco! ($16 www.moroccanoil.com)
