    Blo Blow Dry Bar – Franklin Lakes

    Sadly, it’s Sunday already – seriously weekends go by way too fast. But, on a happier note, today I’m sharing my experience at the new Blo Blow Dry Bar location in Franklin Lakes, NJ. Blo is a blow dry bar chain with a few locations in New Jersey and the one in Franklin Lakes just opened this week. They were so kind as to invite me to their grand opening celebration a few days ago, but since it is 45 minutes away from me (without traffic), I knew it would be cutting it close to go after work during the week. But, I really wanted to go and get a…

    Living Proof – Perfect Hair Day Body Builder

    Happy Friday! It’s been a long and stressful week, but we’re finally at the weekend. Now only if the weekend can not fly by in the blink of an eye we’ll be good. Let’s talk about hair today. My hair is pretty soft and silky, but it’s fine so if I don’t blow dry it with a round brush, it can look flat. So when I saw a bunch of people on social media raving about Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Body Builder I wanted to try it. You can set the nozzle on the spray to give you more or less body. It’s easy to use – all you…

    Blazon Brush

    Happy Monday and hello Thanksgiving week! I just need to get through work today and tomorrow and then I’m off! To say I’m excited is an understatement. Speaking of Thanksgiving, all the good sales should be happening this week especially since many stores have started doing pre-Black Friday sales in recent years. Have you started your holiday shopping? I started, but just a few things here and there that I saw and thought would make small gifts. With all the sales coming up I wanted to tell you that Blazon Brush is offering 10% off their brushes from Black Friday through Cyber Monday. Blazon Brush was kind enough to send me…

    Vacay VoxBox

    I hope your weekend is going well so far! I went to the 1st birthday party for one of my best friend’s daughter. It was a nice time outside and I got to go in the pool for the first time this summer! Speaking of summer time fun, if you follow me on Instagram then you may have seen some of my photos of items from my Vacay VoxBox from Influenster. In this post I thought I’d round up the items! In my box, I got: A coupon for a free bag of either the new Sour Patch Kids Freeze or Sour Patch Kids Fire. I picked up the Freeze. Kiss…

    Finesse MAX Deep Conditioner

    I’m always in the market for haircare products to pamper my tresses. When Finesse sent me sachets of their Finesse MAX Deep Conditioning Keratin Treatment I was really excited to try it out. They even included a comb! Depending on how long and thick your hair is, you should be able to get more than one use out of each packet. I got 2 uses out of each for me. The treatment is meant to revive dull, dry hair, which I don’t really have – but it also delivers deep penetrating proteins to give you stronger, healthier hair. It can also be used as a preventative measure for the damage the summer…

    ColorProof Anti-Frizz Serum

    A while back I posted about the ColorProof PowderFix Texturizing Spray that I was enjoying. Well, I’m happy to be trying another product from ColorProof – the RadicallySmooth Anti-Frizz Serum. This lightweight serum looks like a cream with its white color and creamy texture. It claims to smooth your hair and offers full spectrum UVA/UVB color and heat protection. The brand also says “it features our proprietary smoothing blend of Camellia and Abyssinian Oils along with soy lipids and seaweed to seal hairs’ cuticle and provide intense surface smoothing with long-lasting shine.” It also claims to reduce drying time. So does it work? I’ve been using it for the past two weeks.…

    ColorProof PowderFix Texturizing Spray

    I always enjoy styling my hair, but in the simplest ways possible because I’m no hair expert. For reference, my hair is pretty soft and silky but also fine. I don’t have thin hair, but it is fine so it’s not naturally very voluminous. On weekdays when I’m in a rush to go to work, I’ll achieve some volume by blowdrying my hair upside down with a round brush. But by the end of the night my hair’s usually a bit flat. Enter the ColorProof PowderFix Texturizing Powder Spray. When this powder spray was sent to me and I read that it energizes your hair and delivers long-lasting volume, I…

    InStyler Max Rotating Iron

    The last time I wrote about a hair tool (I think) was over a year ago when I talked about my love for the BeachWaver. Scratch that, I just remembered I wrote about the Sleep Styler rollers since then, but I didn’t really love those. Fortunately, I do love the tool I’m talking about today – the InStyler Max Rotating Iron! This tool is pretty easy to use and gives the most amazing curled under looks that seriously look like you got a blow out at the salon. I got the 1 1/4 inch barrel in purple. On one side is the round barrel and the other side is a plate…

    Thin Braided Headband

    I am admittedly not good at doing hair. Besides the standard ponytails, my skills extend to blowdrying my hair with a round brush and curling my hair. I can french braid my own hair if I’m feeling patient and have a lot of time – and don’t mind the possibility that it may turn out crooked. Recently, I looked up easy braid tutorials because I really wanted to learn some more braids to attempt to do in my hair. I found this thin headband braid tutorial and it looked easy enough for me to do. It’s not a french braid, which makes it exponentially easier for me and only involves adding…

    Ultimate Moroccan Argan Oil

    When Ultimate Moroccan Argan Oil reached out to me and asked if I’d like to try some of their hair products I was definitely interested. I browsed their products and their mint shampoo and conditioner piqued my interest especially because I occasionally suffer from a dry scalp and their mint products are supposed to invigorate, calm, and treat the scalp and hair shaft. I decided to get the mint shampoo & conditioner and the Argan Oil Treatment. Here’s how the company describes the 3 products: Ultimate Mint Shampoo Ultimate Moroccan Argan Oil® Mint Shampoo is a unique fusion of moroccan argan oil and fresh mint essence which helps to deep clean scalp…
