Review: Simply Smooth Xtend Keratin Magic Potion




I’m always looking for products that multi-task, if I can save time and streamline my routine, I’m all for it. I use my rinse out conditioner as a leave-in, I use my rich rinse out conditioners as deep treatments, and root lifters as hair spray. I don’t see the point in buying/using different products for everything, when so many products can be used for more than one thing. So, when I was given to opportunity to check out Simply Smooth Xtend Keratin Magic Potion, I was happy to give it a go.

My Routine: Oils I Love




I’ve mentioned several times that I use oils, as a part of my hair regime. I love oils, and highly recommend them, if you have dry hair, or scalp issues.  I thought it might be helpful if I told you ladies what oils I use, what benefits I notice from them, and how I use them. So here goes…

Review: SixThirteen by Chaz Dean Daily Cleansing Treatment



Hey gals! I’m back for another product review. If you’re a frequent reader, you know I love Wen by Chaz Dean. I’ve tried multiple products from the line, and I’ve liked every single one. So…I’ve been eyeballing the SixThirteen Daily Cleansing Treatment since it was introduced, last year I believe. Well, love from afar no more, I got it, and I LOVE it. Let’s get to it.

Review: Joico K-Pak Professional Cuticle Sealer


I’m all for enhancing what you’ve got. I do a ton of things to my hair to make it look and feel as good as possible. Two of the things I do on a regular basis are protein treatments and vinegar rinses. So when I found a product that would combine the two, I jumped all over it. I’m talking about Joico K-Pak Professional Cuticle Sealer.

Battle of the Hard Hold Gels: Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee vs. Beyond The Zone Bada Bing Extreme Hold Gel


















Any curly girl, who wants definition, and the smallest amount of frizz possible knows the importance of products with good hold. I love a hard hold gel, they seem to be the only thing that will give me the hair I want. So what is it that I want? Definition, low frizz factor, volume/body, shine, and curls that will last through the day. I realize that’s asking a lot, especially living where I live. So, on my latest Sally’s excursion I decided to pick up a gel that I’ve read about on NC.com, Beyond the Zone Bada Bing Extreme Hold Gel.

Review: Yes To Carrots Nourishing Shampoo and Pampering Conditioner



Dare I say it, I think I found a new HG shampoo (low poo) and conditioner. Now I’m not one to profess my undying love about a product unless I’m serious. When it comes to my hair, I’m serious, dead serious in fact. The most shocking thing is, they’re a drugstore product! Don’t get me wrong, I think there are plenty of great products at the drugstore, but I’m a sort of hair snob sometimes. Anywho, ladies brace yourselves, I’ve fallen madly in love with Yes To Carrots Nourishing Shampoo and Pampering Conditioner.

Review: Vanish Color Remover



Vanish Color Correction

I'll be the first to admit, I change my hair color like some women change their handbag. It's a lot, probably every 2-3 months. Now I'm talking about actually changing the color, not doing root touch-ups. My hair has been more colors than I can count, and the only color I can honestly think of that it's never been is black. Most of the time if I'm going from dark to light I'd just bleach and start over. As you can imagine, this takes quite a toll on my hair, and it's certainly been healthier. So a couple months ago I ran across a product called Vanish Color Remover. It has literally changed my hair-coloring life!

Review: L'Oreal Evercreme Cleansing Conditioner




If you’ve read any of my posts about hair in the last 2 years, you probably know I don’t do sulfates. My hair + sulfates= utterly craptastic hair days. I’d been seeing the new L’Oreal Evercreme Cleansing Conditioner all over the place; drugstores, supermarkets, blogs, message boards, etc. I passed it on many of my excursions, I kept telling myself, You don’t need it, you have enough hair stuff. You’ve run out of room, use other stuff up before you buy anything. Of course, being the product junkie that I am, I caved and bought it.
