Go Glossy with Aveda

<a rel=”attachment wp-att-3822″ href=”http://mystylebell.com/2010/05/03/go-glossy-with-aveda/aveda-smooth-infusion-2/”><img style=”border: 0pt none;” title=”aveda smooth infusion” src=”http://mystylebell.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/aveda-smooth-infusion1.jpg&#8221; alt=”aveda smooth infusion,aveda smooth infusion straightener,aveda” width=”211″ height=”300″ /></a>Who doesn’t want their hair to be glossy and vibrant? Many products promise shine and body, but <a href=”http://www.aveda.com/product/CATEGORY14958/PROD15116/Styling/Shine/index.tmpl&#8221; target=”_blank”><strong>Aveda Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener</strong></a> actually delivers “lustrous” results as promised. I love this product!

After shampooing and conditioning with my <strong>Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and Conditioner</strong> (still loving these products!), I applied <a href=”http://www.aveda.com/product/CATEGORY14958/PROD15116/Styling/Shine/index.tmpl&#8221; target=”_blank”><strong>Aveda Smooth Infusion</strong></a> to my thick, wavy, and usually frizzy hair. No guess work with application – <strong>Aveda</strong> provides clear and easy instructions about how to apply<strong> <a href=”http://www.aveda.com/product/CATEGORY14958/PROD15116/Styling/Shine/index.tmpl&#8221; target=”_blank”>Smooth Infusion</a></strong>: “apply evenly to towel-dried hair.”

I noticed the shininess even in the thickest parts of my hair. I then blow dried and flat ironed my hair. My hair smoothed and straightened faster than normal – even my new growth went from wavy to smooth. I don’t like my hair too straight and without body; with this product I still had the volume I like. My hair overall was shiny and had fewer “flyaways” than usual.

All of that – and <a href=”http://www.aveda.com/product/CATEGORY14958/PROD15116/Styling/Shine/index.tmpl&#8221; target=”_blank”><strong>Aveda Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener</strong></a> smells AMAZING! It has a clean plant aroma that is very inviting and in no way irritates my usually fragrance-sensitive nose and skin.

Once again, <strong>Aveda</strong> gets it right. <a href=”http://www.aveda.com/product/CATEGORY14958/PROD15116/Styling/Shine/index.tmpl&#8221; target=”_blank”><strong>Aveda Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener</strong></a> is a wonderful, easy to use, and very effective straightener. Go glossy – go <strong>Aveda</strong>!

Shea Butter: A Moisturizing Powerhouse

loccitane,shea butter,shampoo,conditioner,reviewWhen I wore my hair naturally in two-strand twists or in a twist-out style, I relied on shea butter to moisturize and strengthen my hair. But I always thought shea butter was too heavy for relaxed or finer hair types.

Fortunately, I was wrong. There are many products on the market that use the moisturizing powerhouse shea butter to condition, moisturize, and strengthen all hair types. Two products that caught my attention recently are L’Occitane’s Shea Butter For Dry Hair Shampoo and Shea Butter For Dry Hair Conditioner.

L’Occitane’s Shea Butter For Dry Hair Shampoo is a light sudsing shampoo with a subtle, calming scent. I was impressed with how soft and smooth my hair felt after using the shampoo – even before conditioning. As I have mentioned in previous blogs, though, I suffer with itchy scalp. So, while the shampoo cleaned my hair well without stripping it, it did not calm my itchy scalp, even after shampooing twice. Since that first trial, I’ve used Shea Butter For Dry Hair Shampoo after shampooing with Tea Tree Shampoo as a way to begin softening my hair before using conditioner. I like this shampoo combination a lot.

I then follow with L’Occitane’s Shea Butter For Dry Hair Conditioner. Shea Butter For Dry Hair Conditioner is a lightweight conditioner that packs a punch. I left the conditioner on for five minutes and then rinsed with lukewarm water. The conditioner rinses well and does not leave a heavy coat on my hair. I was pleasantly surprised at this conditioner’s ability to soften, smooth, and de-frizz my hair.

Give your hair a chance to soak up natural moisture. Try L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Dry Hair Shampoo and Conditioner.

Carol’s Daughter Rosemary Mint Tingle

carols daughter rosemary mint shampoo and condtionerAre you looking for a fantastic new shampoo that has no parabens, mineral oil, petroleum or artificial colors and also SLS/SLES and Sulfate-free. Look no further! I have just used the NEW Carol’s Daughter Rosemary Mint Purifying Shampoo and Conditioner and absolutely loved it.

Description: The Carol’s Daughter Rosemary Mint Purifying Shampoo and Conditioner is an invigorating duo designed to gently lift away product build-up while soothing and conditioning the hair and scalp. The ultimate hair detox, the reformulated shampoo and all-new conditioner are made with nature’s best cleansers and moisturizers to help restore hair to its original, shiny, healthy state.

Texture: The Carol’s Daughter Rosemary Mint shampoo has an interesting texture. It almost feels a little gritty like bath salts. When I put some on my hands I was wondering if it would actually sud or not. The shampoo was also a little difficult to get out of the bottle. It is very thick. The Carol’s Daughter Rosemary Mint Conditioner, however, was very smooth like lotion. It was easy to get on the bottle and easy to apply on your hair.

Smell: The smell of this shampoo and conditioner is what immediately sold me! I opened the bottle and a shot of mint overtakes you. It is like none other. I would buy this shampoo on smell alone!

Application: I first started with the Carol’s Daughter Rosemary Mint Shampoo. Again it was a little difficult to pour into my hands. I had to put a little extra water in my hair to make it sud. Then I shampooed my hair like any other shampoo. There was an incredible tingly sensation on my scalp when I shampooed which I loved! I then followed up with the Carol’s Daughter Rosemary Mint Conditioner. I really enjoyed the smell and the tingly sensation of both.

Results: When I first tested this product out, I had my doubts about whether it would work on my straight simple hair. But it did! I have now been using this product for about 2 weeks and my hair is soft and deeply conditioned. All without those messy sulfates and mineral oils! It is really hard to find a good duo that will give you a professional cleanse without the nasty chemicals. This product does it all with an incredible smell! It is only $12.50 for the shampoo and $16.00 for the conditioner! This is definitely a StyleBell pick!

Carol’s Daughter: My Hair’s Best Friend

I’ve been transitioning from texturized hair to natural hair for 8 months. While this is not the first time I’ve transitioned to natural hair, it is the first time I’ve really struggled with extreme dryness. My new growth initially was extremely dry and frizzy; my texturized hair was breaking and splitting more than I was comfortable with. And every product I used did not penetrate my hair well enough to deliver the moisture and nourishment my hair needed.

All that changed when I started using Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter 3 months ago. Normally I would stay clear of any product called “butter” when looking for a moisturizer for fear that it would be too heavy for my relaxed hair. But, Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter is actually a creamy hair-dress made for natural and relaxed hair that is full of nothing but healthy hair nourishment. This Healthy Hair Butter combines ingredients such as Shea Butter (a moisturizing powerhouse), Lavender and sweet orange (to rejuvenate), Cedarwood (calms itchy scalp), Lemongrass and rosemary (increase scalp circulation), and others to turn dull, dry, frizzy, and weak hair into strong, silky, vibrant, well nourished hair.

The first time I used Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter, I noticed an immediate difference. After shampooing and drying my hair, I put a nickel-sized amount of the Healthy Hair Butter into my palm, rubbed my hands together to emulsify the Hair Butter, and then smoothed it throughout my hair. I used a small amount on my scalp as well since my roots and scalp were also struggling for moisture. My hair was smoother and shinier with the first use. I also love the weight and creaminess of the Healthy Hair Butter. Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter is not heavy and absorbs well into the hair. No heavy residue, no flaking – just healthy shine.

I love using Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter. It combines healthy ingredients that deliver great results – all without the use of parabens, sulfates, or synthetic fragrances. Now I use Healthy Hair Butter twice to three times a week, depending on my hair’s level of dryness. I’ve noticed far less breakage, less frizz, and less puffiness. I now use it when my hair is wet and I want to air dry my hair. I also use it prior to blow drying and after flat ironing my hair. My hair is healthier and my itchy scalp is calmer and less flaky.

Give Carol’s Daughter a try. I’m sure she’ll become your hair’s best friend, too.

Bling Strands: Hot New Product!

blingstrands1

A month or so ago I attended Cosmoprof, an all hair and beauty show, featuring some amazing products.  At the show one of my hot new faves was Bling Strands!  As I walked the show I saw women with little sparkles in their hair.  Think glisten versus punk or emo.   As their hair hit the lights you could see a little shimmer.   Nothing drastic just a slight glisten.  I soon discovered that it was the new Bling Strands.  In seconds you can tie single shimmer strands to the root of your hair with no glueing or chemicals.  The owner of Bling Strands tested a few on me and I loved it!  She put a coppery undertone string that look fabulous against my copper highlights.  Check out video at Cosmoprof of the owner putting a little pizzaz in this women’s hair within seconds!  For more product info go to  www.blingstrands.com.
