I love my red locks, but I was looking for more of that shiny hair-commercial look on a daily basis. Along came Nexxus’ new Oil Infinite line, and I was lucky enough to get a chance to review it myself in a video we filmed for Nexxus at Walmart. Boom!
Dullness is my biggest hair problem these days, so I was stoked when my Paul Mitchell Insiders package this month included the MirrorSmooth line. Shine bright like a diamond, y’all!
So there’s science and stuff behind this whole thing – the big Mitch’s exclusive KeraReflect blend features natural Abyssinian oil for brilliant shine, awapuhi extract for optimal moisture, strengthening keratin protein and thermal protectors for heat-stylin’ addicts like myself. #icantquityou Continue reading “Shine Bright Like a Diamond: Paul Mitchell MirrorSmooth Review #PMInsiders” »
More and more, it seems, ladies are coloring their hair shades of red or adding red tones to give their manes some more grrrr. I’m my own example. I love the way the sunlight hits my hair and seems to set it on fire when I’ve got it a nice deep red. People are always asking me how I get this vibrant color – but the trick isn’t getting it, it’s keeping it.

I mentioned having problems with dullness in my hair recently, so I thought a post about some solution might be of use to any of my readers who despise those Pantene ads where Laetitia Casta’s hair looks like a big brunette ribbon of glossiness.

So if you must blow dry every time you shampoo, or perhaps you’re in permanent love with your flat iron (this means you!) – lay off. It’s not helping!
If you’re among the beauty-concerned, you’ve probably heard claims of the miracle shampoo and conditioner Mane and Tail. Being in the beauty business, I have constant conversation on the topic, and time and time again people have said to me, “If you want your hair to grow fast, use Mane & Tail!” I jump for anything that involves speedy hair growth, so I tried it as soon as I could get my hands on it.
“Isn’t that for horses?” you may be asking yourself. The answer is yes, some people do use Mane & Tail for horses and that was its original use. However, that doesn’t mean it contains any magical, scary horse genes. You won’t start neighing if you use it, trust me – we share many product favorites with horses, including hairbrushes, carrots and sugar cubes.
