Black 15in1 Miracle Hair Shampoo and Conditioner: Black Magic

Despite my (expensive) keratin treatment back in early June, six weeks of traveling through Asia, in and out of humidity and dehydrating air conditioning, has taken a toll on my hair.

Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Shampoo: Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams

Ever since Tina tried Kérastase‘s Chronologiste Essential Restorative Concentrate last year, packed with pearls immersed in seawater, we’ve seen the power of caviar.

Back when I started I could get away with highlighting my hair every six months, […]

Kerastase Cristalliste Collection for Long Hair

Finally something specifically designed for us ladies with long hair from Kerastase! For years I’ve been using the brand’s Oleo Relax Smoothing Masque which isn’t designed for my kind of hair (it’s for thick, coarse hair whereas I have thin, long hair), but it’s one of the few products that can make my knot-prone long […]

Bumble & Bumble Color Minded Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner: Keep an Open Mind

Ever since I started coloring my hair, I’ve become conscious of ingredients in my shampoos. Not for health reasons. It’s pure vanity. I want to make sure nothing will strip away the color and highlights that I painstakingly sit through every few months (gray hairs be damned!). The latest to hit my shower: Bumble and […]
