L’Oreal Feria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Haircolor Review

LOreal Feria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Haircolor ReviewI’ll tell you a secret: I color my hair at home. It’s a beauty no-no, I know – but to pay 6x less and come out with color that’s more like what I wanted to begin with, I’ll take it.

As such, I’m always searching for a great at-home color. In my pre-redhead days, Feria in Diamond Blonde was the best blonde I found – it’s not too bright but not remotely ashy, a natural-looking warm color. (In case you’re curious, when I don’t use henna, my new red-hair standard is Feria Mango. If you want an intense, bright, orange-red, this is for you.) The new standard in at-home color is to include a moisturizing conditioner to use after coloring, and Feria’s is thick, luscious and leaves my hair amazingly soft.

Hair Product Review: Sunsilk Hydra TLC Shampoo & Conditioner

Hair Product Review Sunsilk Hydra TLC Shampoo & Conditioner AdI’m always a little wary of drugstore hair care. It probably comes with my hearing about wax in Pantene (a post to come), or maybe my very American association of spending more money with better quality, but whatever the reason, I cringe when I buy shampoo or conditioner that isn’t $15+.

Sunsilk Hydra TLC ConditionerStill, I received some samples of Sunsilk in the mail (here’s a tip, beauty companies: GIRLS LOVE SAMPLES) and was intrigued by the various formulas, if still a bit annoyed by the commercials with voiceovers of Charlotte’s gay friend Anthony from Sex & the City telling me to “get Hairapy!”. Plus, when I saw the price tag I figured I couldn’t go wrong. I tried Hydra TLC, because in my experience, shine-enhancing, volumizing and other such hair problems can be fixed by simply improving your hair’s health and moisture.

Hair Product Reviews: Shu Uemura White Tea Polishing Milk

Hair Product Reviews Shu Uemura Art of Hair White Tea Polishing Milk ModelThere are few greater joys in life for this beauty addict than the marriage of two of my greatest loves: Shu Uemura and heat styling. What more could a girl ask for?

Shu Uemura debuted the Art of Hair line this year, and included in the collection is the Satin Design White Tea Polishing Milk, a versatile leave-in meant to finish blow dried hair. Since I just got a brand new hair dryer, I was excited to try the product with a fresh blow drying.

Hair Product Review: Redken Extreme AntiSnap Leave-In Treatment

Hair Product Review Redken Anti-Snap Leave In Model Muse LeftI’m a hair abuser. I color, flat iron, blow dry, go swimming capless, and generally mortify my hair by living under the desert sun. So for me, a product like Redken Anti-Snap is a dream. Just wash and condition as normal, and then apply some AntiSnap to the lengths and especially ends of your hair. (I use about two pumps of the bottle for my shoulder-length hair…three on an especially burny Phoenix afternoon!)

Hair Product Review: Garnier Fructis Sleek n’ Shine Leave-In Serum

Hair Product Review Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Leave-in Serum AdThis is one of those drugstore products I’m always recommending, so I figured I should officially review it. Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Leave-In Serum is a great all-in-one product for a good price: it reduces frizz, adds shine, and gives hair a generally polished look. One of the reasons I love it is that it’s great on a multitude of hair types – curly, straight, wavy, Carrot Top… the list goes on.
