The excitement we feel at the start of summer can disappear as soon as we walk out the door if our hair isn’t ready to take on the humidity. It’s frizz city out there! Most products try to fight it using silicone or oils, and they do work to tame the crazy – as long as you’re okay with flat hair.
As I mentioned earlier today, I’m what some might call a packing artist. Whether it’s whittling down three suitcases worth of clothes and accessories into one, or streamlining my daily essentials into the tiniest of bags, I find ways to get the job done without ever sacrificing my necessities. With the introduction of their new purse and travel size collection, Oribe is on the same page!
I have no fewer than ten products lining my tub right now. It’s gotten so bad that when my husband and son shower, they have no idea what to use. I’m always trying new shampoos, conditioners, masks, and oils, but I just discovered something that covers all the bases – Transforming Hair Cleanser No. 724.
There’s nothing like the look of just-colored hair – the vibrant color and slick shine are hard to replicate, to the point that you wish you could get it done on a regular basis! Of course that would damage your locks, which is why I’m loving the new John Frieda Colour Refreshing Gloss.
Short hair, don’t care? I do! I’ve been thinking about going under the scissors for months now, but a shoulder length cut takes a certain hair texture to pull off – one that I don’t have. With my stick straight and heavy locks, I would come out looking like a librarian (not a bad thing, just not what I’m in the mood for right now).
Recently I was preparing to leave for a trip to New York when I realized that my grays were showing (yes, that’s my current reality!). Without time for a salon appointment, I popped on over to Duane Reade to pick up the TouchBack pen. This is a temporary solution just like dry shampoo, but sometimes you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do!
I’ve been traveling a ton lately – Puerto Rico, South Beach, London, Tokyo. It’s so important for me to have multi-duty products on hand (you think NYC TSA is annoying…they are nothing compared to some of the other ones!). It’s also not a secret that airplanes zap your skin’s moisture so having a product like AERIN Beauty Rose Balm ($58) is imperative.
With so many chic women cutting their hair into pixies or bobs, the desire to chop off our locks is stronger than ever. But when I cut my waist length hair into a straight bob on whim in my twenties (I cried for hours!), I vowed to never go that short again. My hair now falls a few inches below my shoulders, and tempted though I may be for a quick change, I’m not willing to make the cut again.
