On those rare occasions in summer when I choose to blow dry my hair, I need a product that can effectively banish frizz. Since my hair is naturally very curly, in the summer all it wants to do is to be curly, so blow drying it straight is an epic battle between me and my hair. A lot of the products that successfully calm and tame my hair in the cooler months just do not cut it in summer. I purchased blowpro while in Florida because a hair product that performs well in the weather there, is a pretty good indication of what I can expect it to do all summer (no matter where I go.)
The blowpro straight to the point straightening lotion that I purchased worked amazingly well in the Florida heat and humidity. I followed the suggested usage and applied the straightening lotion from root to tip on my freshly washed hair and blow dried in sections as usual. The directions also suggested applying extra product to the tips to help prevent fly-aways, which I did. Read more
Let’s face it once summer arrives, for us naturally curly haired girls, there is absolutely no use in trying to battle with what our hair naturally wants to do…which is to suck up the summer humidity and curl to its utmost content. And why would you even want to spend precious time indoors trying to battle with your hair anyway when you could just wash, apply a bit of product and just go enjoy summer in all of its glory?
I plan on spending most of my time at the pool or on the beach and the last thing I want to worry about while partaking in is frizzy straight hair that wants to go curly or weird, crunchy, “jheri curled” looking hair. So in an effort to embrace my natural texture but still have soft, smooth curls, I decided to give Miss Jessie’s Jelly Soft Curls a try. Read more
There are three ways you can use this oil in your hair:
1. Prior to showering. Just apply a few pumps of the oil to your hands and then smooth throughout your hair. Leave on for 5 minutes, rinse and shampoo and condition as you normally would. This helps create an incredible shine to your hair. Read more
Now that you have a general idea of what a miserable task combing my hair post-shower is, please let me introduce to you my new best friend. It’s a Detangle and Defrizz Conditioning Leave-In Mist ($12) from Verb and it’s like magic. No seriously, I’m in love. Detanglers meant for little kids that are sold at drugstores don’t do anything for my knotting. This magic potion however it’s truly amazeballs. (That’s the only word that felt appropriate.)

A balding head can be very embarrassing and many people will do anything to recover from hair loss. There are a number of reasons that cause hair to thin out and die. The most common cause of balding is caused by Dihydrotestosteron or DHT. To stop and reverse hair loss, DHT must be inhibited because it causes hair follicles to thin and die. Collection of sebum due to building up of sebaceous oil can also cause hair loss. The sebum hardens in hair follicles hindering hair growth. Other causes of hair loss include poor hair nutrition and scalp hygiene.
For people suffering from hair loss it is possible to get a guaranteed solution from hair loss control clinics. Hair loss control clinics employ a therapy that involves: Read more
The name and packaging hint that your hair is in for a treat, but I didn’t have any idea just what a luxury my hair was in for. It is very rare that I have any kind of reaction to a shampoo and conditioner. Maybe it’s the weather or the hard water here in Pennsylvania, but for whatever reason, it all tends to feel the same and turns out the same results. Never anything to get excited about … until I tried U Luxury shampoo and conditioner from Unite! Talk about luxury! For the first time in a very long time, I brushed my hair without the assistance of a leave-in conditioner or detangler! For me, that’s huge. Read more
When I first heard about Tibolli’s Moisture Lust Spray, I was hesitant about using it because I wasn’t sure what it was and I’m not usually a fan of leave -in-conditioners. Tibolli’s Moisture Lust Spray promised to deliver light hydration, strengthen against damage, and leave a conditioned finish. After a long cold winter, I need all of those things … so I gave it a whirl!
I tried using it both ways it is suggested. You can either spray it in when your hair is damp after towel drying or after it’s dry. For me, I preferred using it while my hair was damp. I was afraid that this spray would feel like a leave-in-conditioner, which tends to leave my hair heavy and filmy … but it didn’t! My hair felt smooth, soft, and light. A few squirts of the lightly (nice) scented formula gave me a nice dose of moisture, without weighing down my super-long hair. I’m a fan! Read more

Hair damage has been a big topic of conversation lately. Especially for me, since even 6 years post-baby, my hair still seems to break easily and fall out. I know that all of the hair coloring, blow drying, flat ironing and curling I am doing isn’t helping either. So I’ve been paying more attention to doing weekly hair treatments and trying to use products that are targeted for improving damaged hair.
For the launch of Head & Shoulders new Damage Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner, they did a survey to find out the top 10 most damaged cities in the US. I was sad to see that Philadelphia made the list. Although I am about 2.5 hours north of Philly, I definitely feel like I fit into this listing. Here are those 10 cities–is yours on the list? Read more
