I don’t use many hair products aside from an oil on towel dried hair, heat protecting spray, shine spray, and occasionally a leave-in and anti-frizz, but because I’m such a huge Living Proof fan I was nonetheless interested in learning about Living Proof Prime Style Extender ($20), so I stopped by the launch event a […]

nuNaat Brazilian Keratin: This Keratin’s A Keeper

Davines Defining Texturizer Styling Spray: Post-Shampoo Perfection

This is what my stylist uses on my hair when he needs it to style after a shampoo. As you know, super-clean hair is stubborn to style, especially if you have thick and slick hair, like mine. Some people use dry shampoo for this purpose, but for me, it gets too sticky and gross, leaving […]
