I don’t know about you, but Winter dried out my hair in the worst way. For the last few months I’ve had to deal with super staticy hair, not to mention frizz like I’ve never experienced before. Honestly, it was worse than getting hit with humidity in the summer. You, too? Then read on.

I consider my naturally curly hair both a gift and a curse. When my hair decides to behave in its natural state, it is a huge mane of defined, bouncy curls that I positively revel in, but when my hair decides to act up, it become a pouf of frizz or a saddened state of lifeless curls that I cannot wait to get rid of.
Usually whenever my hair does act up, it is mostly due to the styling (products) I chose to use. Either the product was too heavy and weighed my hair down or not hydrating enough and caused my curls to transform into a ball of frizz. Rarely do I ever use just one product to style my curly hair. A couple to a few products are usually required to get those bouncy, shiny, hydrated curls that I always desire. Read more
If you color treat or heat style your hair, you’ll want to indulge in Phyrra’s Pretty Little Elixir Hair Masque. This vegan, cruelty free and paraben free hair masque is the brain child of fellow beauty blogger, Phyrra. Phyrra’s Pretty Little Elixir Hair Masque was designed for heat treated, chemically treated, or dyed hair that’s dull or dry. It has nourishing ingredients to reduce the signs of external damage and restore hair’s softness, moisture and luster.
You can apply the mask to damp hair and cover with a hot towel for 10 minutes to allow it to absorb overnight if your hair is extra frizzy and dry. Simply work it from root to tip using a wide tooth comb, wrap, leave it on for 10 minutes (or overnight) and rinse with cool water.

If you’re anything like me, whether you’re searching for the right shade to color your hair at home or to request of your hairstylist at the salon, seeking the perfect hair color is a priority. (There was this one time when my hair wound up a weird shade of red….) But it goes beyond finding the right color by simply saying, “I like this shade of red.”
According to Patrick McIvor, expert hair colorist and Artistic and TechniCultural Director for Goldwell/KMS California, to find the perfect color, three factors must always be considered. Read more
In winter, colder temperatures and indoor heating deplete moisture in the air, which can leave hair parched, so it’s important to replenish moisture to prevent breakage and promote shine. Ruth Roche, Artistic Ambassador for Pureology Serious Colour Care offers 5 tips for getting the glow back.
1. Get a good trim to remove frayed ends, they tend to be dryer and more damaged than the rest of the hair strand.
2. Use a clarifying treatment to remove styling product buildup that contributes to lack of moisture and dullness. Pureology Purify Shampoo is a great one – it’s sulfate-free and safe for color-treated hair. Read more

I love a good dry shampoo. I love shiny hair. I also love volume. However, on any given day, those three things sometimes do not happen all at once. At least, not with a little help.
Everyone who knows me, knows that I do not wash my hair everyday. Dry shampoo has been a staple in my beauty routine since some expert hairstylists I met a few years back told me that shampooing every day was a definite no-no to achieve healthy hair and a healthy scalp. Some dry shampoos haven’t worked well for me, while others have achieved must-have status among my hair care products. Herbal Essences new Naked Dry Shampoo is on the must-have list. Read more
