    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 Deep Condiioning Keratin Treatment


    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 - Radically Smooth Anti-Frizz Serum


    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


    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


    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 - Hair Products


    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…

  • Sleep Styler Rollers


    Review: The Sleep Styler

    A few months ago I got suckered in to watching online ads for The Sleep Styler. I enjoy curling my hair every once in a while with a traditional iron or my beloved BeachWaver, but I don’t have time in the morning before work to curl my hair. So I thought The Sleep Styler might be a good idea so that I could sleep with the soft curlers in and wake up to great hair! Although I got the set in the summer I’ve only used it a few times. So how has it been working? First, let me explain what The Sleep Styler is in case you don’t know.…

    Finesse Restore + Strengthen Shampoo & Conditioner

    My hair has been a bit unruly lately. Easily knotted, frizzy, and the list goes on. I’ve got a hair appointment next week, but in the mean time I was happy to try out Finesse’s Restore + Strengthen Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner to see if it would do anything for my hair. Finesse describes this shampoo and conditioner duo as a moisturizing system for dry, damaged, frizzy, or stubborn hair. “Get hair that’s healthier, stronger, and more alive with Finesse®. Infused with active proteins that penetrate deep into the hair shaft, Finesse® Restore + Strengthen Moisturizing Shampoo leaves hair more moisturized and manageable.
