Product Find Alert!  Recently I tried this incredible line of hair care products, Belegenza including a shampoo and conditioner.  Belegenza is committed to providing natural, eco-friendly, and effective products which I love!  I get products to review all of the time but this one really caught my eye.  What makes this line different?  Belegenza provides 8 – 33% active ingredients in a base of natural juices.  Most products contact on 3 – 5% active ingredients.  Belegenza products are all free from silicone and its derivaties, paba, parabens, phthalate, petrolatum, mineral oil, SD alcohol, sodium chloride and sodium lauryl sulfates.  Less is definitely more for me. 

I have been using the Belegenza line of products for the last few weeks.  Both products are fantastic and create a natural lightness and shine to my hair with incredible lift.  With natural ingredients like aloe, seaweed, honey, lemon, beet, coconut, green tea, nettle, and rosemary this is definitely a product must have!  Check them out at www.belegenza.com

Dry Winter Hair? Need Some Condtioning? Redken to the Rescue

redken_real_control_overnight_treatAre you in major need of deep conditioning due to drag of the winter months.  I have noticed that my hair is definitely more on the frizzy side.  I have found the answer!  I discovered a few weeks ago the Redken Real Control Overnight Treat Deep Conditioning treatment!  The treatment is a mousse like substance.  You brush it in your hair before you sleep and wash it out in the morning.  I was worried that it may make for an uncomfortable night’s sleep or transfer on my pillow.  No problems here.  It didn’t even feel greasy or heavy. The treatment was completely absorbed in my hair within a few minutes.

This is definitely worth a try.  Check it out at Redken.com.

Hillary Duff’s 21st Birthday & Pureology

Happy Birthday Hillary’s Duff!  Hillary’s 21st birthday was on Saturday and of course Hillary had to swing it in complete Duff style with beau, Mike Comrie.  Hillary was spotted before the big bash on the streets of NY at a local Children’s bookstore ubber casual.  Insiders have told StyleBell that each of the guests at the cozy bash, including sis Haylie and Nick Zano, received a Pureology gift basket including the Pureology Nano Shampoo and Nano Conditioner, Pureology Thickening Mist, and the Pureology Nano Wax.    

Whats good for Hillary’s friends and family is good for me.  I had to get my hands on the Pureology Nano Shampoo and Conditioner.  The Pureology Nano line of products includes, of course, Nano technology which helps to streghthen, moisturize, and improve your overall hair condition.  Added benefit Pureology is known to help retain hair color and has zerosulfates.

So lets put it to the test.  I opened the shampoo bottle and felt the consistency and smell.  It has a very luxurious feel to it and the smell is incredible, a cross between Jasmine and Roses.  I love it.  I used both the shampoo and conditioner and I really felt a noticable difference in my hair.  My hair was softer, manageable, and had an incredible shine.  Although the conditioner is supposed to be on the heavier side it did not weigh my hair down.  I have darker hair so many times the deeper conditioners can make my hair look greasy.  Not with the Pureology Nano.  I give this combo a definite thumbs up.  I know you all will love it!

Frizzy Dry Hair! Help!

Hi StyleBell,
I am in need of some hair help.  I have long, fine hair and lots of it.  It’s not particularly curly but it does have some wave to it when I let it air dry.  The only problem I find with doing that is that it gets very frizzy.  Is there anything I can use to control the friz?  I have found that most gels make my hair greasy and I must be using mousse wrong because my hair stays wet looking most of the day.  Please help.  I really like the “toussled wavy” look without all the friz!

Hi StyleBell reader,
Although air drying your hair is very healthy for your hair I definitely agree that it can sometimes become one big frizz ball.  Many times my ionic hair dryer works wonders in smoothing down my hair every now and again.  I would also suggest that you first use a natural deep conditioner on your hair.  A deep conditioner can really decrease the frizz in your hair and keep it healthy without weighing down your hair.  My deep conditioner of choice is the Aveda Dry Remedy deep conditioner.  I love it and have been using it weekly.  I can now keep my hair natural but have rid my hair of the nasty frizz.  Also a Beach spray can give you a nice tousled look as well.  I would look at the David Babaii Bohemian Beach spray.
