Lighten Dark Spots with Dermalogica PowerBright Trx Trio

I'm paying for the skin sins of my youth in hyperpigmentation and an abundance of dark spots from both acne and lack of sunscreen usage. Over the years I've learned how to best conceal them with makeup in order to fake a great complexion. However, when the makeup comes Read more

Surya Brasil Color Fixation Restorative Conditioner

Surya Brasil Color Fixation Restorative Hair Conditioner #review

I love experimenting with hair color, whether it be a one step color, Balayage or highlights, for me experimenting with my hair color is a lot less scary than trying a brand new haircut.  After all, if the color comes out terrible it can always be fixed without having to wait months or even a year for my hair to grow out.

For me the only negative of coloring my hair is the damage that hair color can do to the health of my hair.  Which is where a conditioner that is protecting, really moisturizing, nourishing and formulated specifically for color treated hair comes in very handy.  Surya Brasil Color Fixation Restorative Conditioner is amazing on my highlighted hair.  The Color Fixation Restorative Conditioner is a super thick and creamy intensive treatment that contains nourishing Amazonian botanicals and plant based proteins along with natural oils and nut butters that protect hair from sun damage while restoring strength and luster and replenishing natural shine.
