Growing out hair and how to not look lame

4 Jan

I’m growing out my hair again, because I seem to have developed commitment issues with hair length. ¬†Short, Long, Extensions, Go crazy and cut it off.

Here are some fun hair dos I found, including my own braid headband!

Review – Parlor Moisturizing Sea Salt Spray

2 Jun

Happy Thursday, Lovelies!  I always really enjoy reviewing hair care products.  And I enjoy receiving hair care products to review!  I got the Parlor Moisturizing Sea Salt Spray in my April Birchbox.

IMG_3269

¬†My first reaction at receiving a sea salt spray was bored disappointment. ¬†I have never used one that I absolutely love. ¬†I use it and it seems good the first time, and then it ends up fading my hair color or drying my hair or it gets greasy. ¬†(what’s up with that?)

So I wasn’t excited about¬†Parlor Moisturizing Sea Salt Spray. ¬†But I tried it.

My first time, I LOVED it. ¬†I had used it just after I took out my extensions and loved the waves this created in my hair. ¬† Here’s is some background on the product before I dive into my thoughts.

From the Parlor website:

INSPIRATION

Part beach wave spray, part leave-in conditioner, this formula gives hair that covetable surfer-girl texture without the drying effects of salt water.

BEST FOR

All hair types

BENEFITS

Adds volume and creates perfectly undone, beachy waves without drying out your hair.

KEY INGREDIENTS

Sweet almond extract ‚Äď protects hair fibers and infuses softness, volume, and brilliance into weak or damaged hair.

Algae extract ‚Äď helps rebalance the scalp‚Äôs moisture content while protecting, stimulating, and nourishing the scalp with vitamins.

DIRECTIONS

Spray evenly on damp or dry hair and style with your fingers. For increased hold, diffuse with hair dryer.

Did it deliver what it promised?

Yes, my waves were more formed and bigger (I do have a natural wave in my hair).  My hair was shiny and soft not crunchy.  My hair looked pretty.  And all I did was spray this on and scrunch it up.

Bonus use

If you don’t wash your hair daily, this also works to hold your second day style. ¬†I curled my hair the second day after I used it (many times) and it consistently keeps my hair styled and the curl last longer.

One thing I disliked about other sea salt sprays was that it was pretty much impossible to make my hair look good the day after.  It would be either stringy or frizzy.  Sometimes both. Uncute.

Would I purchase full size?

Yes! ¬†It retails for $24.00 which is not the cheapest styling product but it’s also not the most expensive. ¬†Also, you don’t drench your hair with this, so it does last a while. ¬†I’m still using my Bichbox sample size and we are already in June.

Have you guys used  Parlor Moisturizing Sea Salt Spray?  What did you think?

Updos for short hair – growing out your hair pains

8 Oct

I’m growing out my hair, it sucks. ¬†It sits at my shoulders, so instead of having a cute 20s bob, I feel meh.

So far, I’ve been tucking my hair in a headband, but I am now bored. ¬†Here are some of cute hair ideas I found:

My new favorite Shampoo and Conditioner – ColorProof

2 Oct

A stylist associate of mine recommended this brand to me when I was on my last hair care quest.

Meet ColorProof!

  • Carcinogen-free | MEA & DEA-free
  • Biodegradable formulas
  • Recyclable packaging wherever possible
  • 100% vegan

Image

I opted for the Moisture line because my hair tends to tangle and dry out due to color treatments. ¬†I find that the smell is not overwhelming what so ever – the Shampoo has a faint vanilla style scent and the conditioner has a hint of tingly mint. ¬†The shampoo makes my hair feel very clean but didn’t strip out my color. ¬†The conditioner is AMAZNG!!!! ¬†It made my hair so easy to comb, which is unheard of. ¬†I even had my boyfriend try it [he has a facebook page devoted to his hair that some friends made] and he loved it too!

ColorProof has 4 different distinct formulas based on hair type:

Image

SuperPlump –¬†Designed for color-treated hair in need of body and fullness

CrazySmooth –¬†to create remarkably smooth, extremely shiny hair with absolutely zero frizz.
