Let's Talk Hair!!

Remember how I told you I am a lipstick junkie?  Well, I'm also a hair product junkie!!!
I can't seem to help myself.  I love a good hair product.  And boy do I have some good
ones to share with you!  I have thick, course, slightly curly and frizzy hair.  It can definitely
be unruly at times and hard to tame.  Especially when I want it to go straight.  So, over
the years I've had to figure which products work the best on me and what doesn't.  I know, so does
everyone else.  But, what I've learned in Cosmetology school and talking to tons of people
about their hair, is that they start to give up on the hunt of a product that can actually change
the entire look and feel of their hair.  I say, don't give up! Don't ever give up!
Here are just a few that I love, that just might help you

I adore the Pureology hair line!  EVERYTHING!!  My favorite is the
Super Smooth shampoo.  All their products are for color treated hair and have
zero sulfate in them.  Sulfate is a detergent that is loaded with salt and makes
the shampoo lather like crazy.  It also can fade your color quicker!  Gasp!!
Did you know that you were washing that salon color right out of your hair?!
Trust me!  Use zero sulfate!

The Super Smooth conditioner is a must

About once a month I use Pureology's clarifying shampoo.  If you get product build up, problems with
hard water or chemically treat your hair, this shampoo works wonders to strip off all the
nasty stuff and leave your color perfectly in place.

I recently purchased this at a hair show and have fallen in love!  This Hydracure is a masque
for your hair.  If your hair is thirsty for moisture, this does the trick.  Your hair will feel like
silk after this!  Love it!

When I blow dry my hair straight, this is the only product I put on my hair.  I apply
about a dime size when my hair is wet, then blow dry.  After it is dry, I apply another
dime size to dry hair.  This product is amazing to tame frizz.  I have fought frizz all my
life and this stuff is awesome!

When I wear my hair curly, I love Pureology's Real Curl.  It doesn't leave my
hair feeling crunchy and sticky at all.  Remember how we wore it in the 80's? 
The crunchier the better right?  This gives a very natural soft curl that I love.

I've recently discovered the Deva Curl line.  It also works wonders on curly frizzy hair. It
actually gave me a fuller curl, not just a wavy one.

This spray helps with frizz as well.  I just bought a sample of the shampoo and conditioner, so
I'll let you know what I think.

When I want a lot of volume at the crown, I love Pureology's Root lift.  Actually,
any root lift will do.  It really does amp your hair up and sometimes you don't even
have to tease your hair, this product works that well.

There you have it! Everything I love and truly use on my hair.  By the way, Pureology in no way paid me to say all these nice things
about them.  They don't even know my little head exist!  I just love to pass on things that
I love and know works wonders.  Hope you try some of these things and if you have any
questions about hair or products just leave me a comment or email me.  I'd love to help
in any way!  Hope you all are having an awesome week!!
