Cashmere Mafia Anyone?

Mirand OttoI must admit I was super psyched when I originally heard about Cashmere Mafia as I’ve been longing for a weekly “must-see” since the those good ‘ole Sex And The City days. Unfortunately I’m not sure how long the show will last due to the poor reviews and general lack of enthusiasm – even with the heavy media buzz – around the show, so I’ll try not to get too attached. But, one thing I will say is that aside from the name (which is killer!) I love, love, love Miranda Otto’s hair. It’s got so much volume and tons of movement, and really, isn’t that what so many of us are looking for?

Cashmere Mafia might not last so long, but fabulous hair like this is always popular with the masses, and I’ll definitely be watching tonight.

A Clean Flat Iron is a Happy Flat Iron

Do you have a flat iron? Yes. Have you ever cleaned it?

Hot Tools Iron CleanerLet me introduce you to Hot Tools Professional Styling Iron Cleaner. This little bottle is perfect for you girls addicted to your flat irons and curling irons. You know who you are! Do you just love your hair straightener? Then CLEAN IT. Taking a few extra minutes to care for your styling iron after each use helps prolong its life, and ensures it will be ready for use the next time you need it. Plus, that gummy residue on the plates can cause damage to your hair by pulling and snagging the strands, causing split ends and breakage.

Gummy residue? Damage? I’m SO not kidding. Flat irons are meant to glide….need I say more?

Pureology is Pure Volume!

Pureology Pure Volume ConditionerI am a big fan of any conditioner that adds a lot of moisture and body to my hair without weighing it down. Usually, if I go for volume my hair seems to get a little dry, and if I go for moisture there is no volume. Then I think, hmmm, should I just go for color-treated? ARGH! What is a girl to do?

Now I know, go straight for Pureology Pure Volume Conditioner. It’s a weightless conditioning creme which controls fly aways and adds body and shine to your hair. Normally when I see the word “weightless” I think “useless” but not this time! My hair has a nice smooth sheen to it, and there is plenty of added volume. Plus it doesn’t feel greasy or like I used too much conditioner.

Bonus Points! It’s specially formulated for color-treated hair, 100% vegan with no animal testing, alcohol free and offers thermal and UVA/UVB protection. (And yes, they have a Pureology Pure Volume Shampoo too!)
