LovelySkin Product Spotlight

For the second year in a row now I stopped by a pop-up LovelySkin hosted in Manhattan to showcase some of their best products. It was a great opportunity to not only learn about new beauty buys, but to speak with the people behind them to get a better feel for them and who they’re … Continue reading LovelySkin Product Spotlight

Serge Normant’s Meta Blonde Reviving Shampoo and Conditioner

About a year ago I tried Serge Normant Meta Morphosis ($60), and while a ton of people have raved about this product, I didn’t care for it. It’s meant for people with dry hair, but unfortunately I felt like it was sucking all of the hydration out of mine (and I gave it a number … Continue reading Serge Normant’s Meta Blonde Reviving Shampoo and Conditioner

nuNaat Brazilian Keratin: This Keratin’s A Keeper

After two months, my (very expensive) Keratin treatment is looking almost non-existent. I loved it so much when I first got it, but now my hair is the same as it ever was, so don’t believe the hype! But that sleekness is addictive. Fortunately, a few bottles of the right hair products will give you … Continue reading nuNaat Brazilian Keratin: This Keratin’s A Keeper

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. Happily, I came home last week to find this waiting for me. With packaging that looks like some sort of new-age witch potion, the … Continue reading Black 15in1 Miracle Hair Shampoo and Conditioner: Black Magic

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. But for $145, the treatment runs you about the same as a tiny tin of high-grade caviar (not including your champagne or side of crème fraiche!). That’s why I’m currently all about … Continue reading Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Shampoo: Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams

Jack Black Turbo Wash Energizing Hair & Body Cleanser: The King of Cleansers

I just got over the worst virus ever; I was quarantined for three days because it was so strong and dangerous to kids. So after marinating in my own germs for a week, I felt like what I needed was a bleach bath, but, of course, that would actually kind of kill me. Luckily, I … Continue reading Jack Black Turbo Wash Energizing Hair & Body Cleanser: The King of Cleansers

Sachajuan Silver Shampoo and Conditioner

I’ve always heard that when it comes to hair products, despite being counter-intuitive, “silver” meant that a product has been formulated to fight grey hairs. Not so however with recently launched Sachajuan Silver Shampoo ($28) and Conditioner ($30), which has been designed specifically for people with my hair — blonde and highlighted. On a side … Continue reading Sachajuan Silver Shampoo and Conditioner

Bumble & bumble Launches Color Minded

I’ve been highlighting my hair since the fifth grade. I started off getting five or six highlights once a year and it slowly progressed to where, around the end of High School, I was getting a full head of highlights. Back when I started I could get away with highlighting my hair every six months, … Continue reading Bumble & bumble Launches Color Minded

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 … Continue reading Kerastase Cristalliste Collection for Long Hair
