bye. bye. frizz.

This year, I decided to let my hair grow. I am very excited I did this because I love my hair long. However, one comment every stylist that has ever touched my hair has been, “WOW! Your hair is so thick!” My response is always the same: I laugh and nod and say, “I know.”

Having thick hair has major advantages, but one disadvantage is that when humidity is high, I resemble a fluffy puppy dog instead of a person! Luckily, I found a line that gets rid of this problem for me.

 bye bye frizz

“Clients love it when they leave the salon with a perfectly smooth sleek finish. We know they’d like to get that frizz-free look every day. bye.bye.Frizz is a frizzy girls dream since it not only removes frizz, it makes your hair so much easier to blow out and style. Plus, your hair will never feel softer or look shinier. Like we said… it’s a frizzy girls dream.”
– Marc Anthony Stylist Team

This entire line is available at your nearest ULTA (we are FINALLY getting one where I live now!) or your local drugstore. I’ve spent top dollar looking for hair products that will smooth out my thick mane only to discover the Marc Anthony line has exactly what I’m looking for and it won’t cost an arm, leg, or your first born child.

Not only did I use the shampoo and conditioner religiously, my daughter (her hair is thick and definitely as frizzy as mine) also used it. The smell is divine and it actually does what it says it’s going to do. Throw in the bonus of keratin being added to your hair – it’s a win win to use this line. The conditioner is perfect for detangling while the shampoo gives your hair a beautiful glossy shine.

If you’re hair isn’t frizzy, then smile because you are LUCKY! Have no fear, Marc Anthony offers a large variety of hair care products for every hair type. Stay tuned for more.

Keranique: Get Fuller Hair

Even though most of what we hear about thinning hair and baldness is from males, women actually make up 40% of the American hair loss sufferers. Not to mention, the baldness gene is a sex-linked trait passed along the X-chromosome from generation to generation. Men have the pleasure of blaming mom’s for their baldness, whereas women have to inherit two X-chromosomes and both have to hold the baldness gene for a woman to express the recessive condition.

Now that the genetics lesson is over, let’s discuss some ways to counteract the effects of thinning and balding hair. We all know the tricks – sometimes they work – most of the time they don’t.

Whether we are blowing our hair upside down, using HUGE curlers, applying raw egg and beer to our hair, or harsh chemicals, women all want the same thing: FULL HAIR.

If your genes have caused your hair to thin out, you might want to consider the full Keranique line. One of the great things genetics has left me with is a full head of hair, however, no matter how thick it is, there are definitely times where it appears lifeless and flat.

If you are like me, then I would recommend trying the Keranique Fortifying Mousse ($20 USD). It makes your hair smooth, easier to brush, and full of volume. Applied to towel dried hair before you apply heat (blow dry, curling iron, or flat iron), my hair felt amazing afterwards. It’s specially formulated to it won’t make your hair feel stiff once the body is added.

A perfect product for someone trying to add volume to their hair or needing extra volume for a special occasion. You can purchase these products either from the Keranique website or HSN.

What do you currently do to add volume to your hair when it is less than perfect?

Batiste Dry Shampoo

batistedryshampoo

If you are a busy mom or someone that doesn’t have a lot of time to get ready in the mornings, you are going to want to try some batiste dry shampoo. This product have become a saving grace and necessity in my hair arsenal.

Introduced to the world of dry shampoo by Cibu, my life was changed the day I was able to skip the wash and spray my hair instead. However, due to problems with the packaging, Cibu’s dry shampoo had to be pulled from the shelves and my bliss was gone.

When I was introduced to batiste dry shampoo, I discovered not only does it smell great, your hair looks great. Coming in a multitude of fragrances, you not only get oil-free shine without washing your hair every day, you get whichever scent you want as if you were applying a body splash.

Whether you want light and fruity, floral, or sensual and perfume-y, there is a scent for everyone. To make it even better, now you can purchase batiste dry shampoo for colored hair.

Be sure you follow the directions so you don’t spray too close to your scalp. If you do a white powdery residue will appear. Work it from roots to tips with either your fingers or a natural bristle brush. The more you use it, the more accustomed you will become to positioning and spray time.

I received the original and the “blush” (floral scented) to review, but if you have Sally’s, I believe you can find these products there. If not, check out the link above for Amazon deals.

Save the water. Save you time. Look amazing.

Have you tried dry shampoo? Let me know what you think of it.
