First things first..Every day we should remember those who gave their life to serve our country, but especially today we remember and are so thankful. Happy Memorial Day!
The last Monday of every month, Andrea and I host a Favorite Things Party. We have a theme every month and today we're talking HAIR PRODUCTS!! We'd love for you to join us. Blog your favorite hair products, link to us, and add your blog to the link-up!
I promised you guys a LONG time ago, I'd do a hair post. I'm totally delivering today, but the pictures are pretty much horrible. haha! Have you guys heard of the Keratin Treatment or a Brazilian Blowout? I think they're super similar. These treatments are supposed to make your hair smoother and more manageable. I have super thick dry and damaged hair. My hair stylist has encouraged me for years to try the Keratin. She always jokes that it arm is sore for days after blow drying my hair. I finally bit the bullet and got the treatment about two months ago. It was amazing! It was kind of pricey so I'm anxious to see how long it really lasts. Before this treatment, I couldn't have blow dried my hair only. It needed to be curled or straightened. The treatment made my hair so much more manageable that a couple times I only blow dried and was done! I'll let you know how long it lasts. I'm hoping for four to five months! But because of that, I changed my shampoo and conditioner upon the recommendation of my hair stylist.
She encouraged me to use these products to make my treatment last longer.
#3 It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In-one of my girlfriends told me about this years ago. I spray this on after getting out of the shower. Then comb through and it makes my hair way more manageable.
The other two products I'm constantly grabbing are these...
#1 Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Styling Creme-When I curl my hair and use this afterward. It gives my curls a little shine.
#2 Moroccan Oil-I use this all the time. I apply it on wet hair before blow drying. I apply it after blow drying to get a little of the frizz out. Or...I apply it after styling my hair to give it a smooth appearance.
Girls...I'm doing this all for you! haha! These pictures crack me up. So-I first used the It's a 10 Leave-In Conditioner and combed. Then I blow dried AND blow dried but it took WAY less time because of my Keratin.
I either wear my hair curled or straight. This day I curled and I section my hair into three groups. I curl the bottom section first. You can see in the second picture I hold it with the curling iron turned away from my face. I did this all over my head and then repeated with the other sections.
I applied some of the Glossing Creme and pinned a little back. I'm not sure if you agree, but I feel like my hair is moody. Some days it all works out for me and other days it just won't cooperate. I was reading a magazine the other day and it said, "32 years of age is the best year for your hair". You guys!! No pressure to my locks, but in August I'll turn 32, so this is my big shot, right? :)
I tried to do a little close-up of the hair only. Please pay no attention to the chipped nail polish. It's been a busy week.
If you have any questions, please ask away! Like I said, I know those pictures were weak! Here's to a GREAT Hair Day! XOXO
