Joico Blonde Life Makes Being Blonde More Fun

standard May 23, 2017 1 response

Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, and even Hilary Duff are doing it. These ladies make being blonde super easy, but is it? I spoke to you guys about how feeling good in your skin with what you wear is important. Well, it’s just as important to feel good about your hair. In the winter months, I keep my hair dark. I love it dark but one thing I don’t love is that you can see all the gray coming in. Yes, I have gray hairs thanks to my boys. So when summer rolls around, I can’t wait to lighten things up by going blonde, and Joico Blonde Life Hair Products Makes Being Blonde More Fun!

Going blonde isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s a process and if you don’t do it right, you can badly damage your hair. When I go blonde, I do it gradually. Using the right products helps maintain my hair’s health while making sure breakage and damage doesn’t occur.

My number one gripe about going blonde for myself is that I have underlying red tones to my hair. So either my hair color turns out the shade of a really yellow banana, or I get orange hues that aren’t quite the blonde I want,  you know that ashy, beachy natural looking blonde all the girls have that you desire. Yeah, that doesn’t happen.

You can use silver shampoos that are purple in color to tone out the brassiness and yellowness in the hair, but honestly, I haven’t found anything that works as good as Joico Blonde Life hair care products.

First Week

I was sent Joico Blonde Life products to test which included Brightening Shampoo and Conditioner and Brightening Masque for adding nourishment. This is after three uses. I can noticeably see many of the red tones fading away and the blonde shimmering through. Sorry for the blurry hand while taking the photo.

BLONDE LIFE™: a lightening and brightening system just for blondes… and those who want to be lifted to new heights without sacrificing hair’s shine or condition. Our Brightening Shampoo, Conditioner, Masque and Lightening Powder— created with strand-strengthening. Arginine and an exotic, nutrient-rich blend of Tamanu and Monoi oils—banish the challenges of brassiness, off-tones, fading and damage that blondes face on a daily basis. Trust us, with Blonde Life, you really will have more fun.

I have to tell you guys, this shampoo is amazing and nothing like I’ve ever tried before. First off it smells delicious. Always a big plus for me. Once you put it in your hair (using a very small amount) it lathers up quite nice and thick almost as though it is adding volume to your hair. My favorite is the Masque. I put that in once a week and leave it in for ten minutes. My hair feels super soft and is so easy to manage considering the frizz I deal with on a daily basis.

Three Weeks Later

And this my hair today! I’ve been using Joico Blonde Life for almost three weeks now and I love what it has done to my hair. My hair is super shiny, no yellow tones, the brassiness is gone and the golden tones are present in my hair. I love the color.

As summertime approaches, I will most likely go up a shade or two more, but it’s nice to know Joico Blonde Life products will be with me along the way to help my hair feel healthy without the damage. It’s not at all like most lightening shampoos which I find dry my hair out causing breakage. Joico Blonde Life makes being a blonde super easy and fun to maintain.

What are some of your favorite brightening products to use? Have you tried Joico Blonde Life? If you have, drop me a comment and let me know what you think.

The last hairstyle is mine. I love how easy it is to do my hair, no drying, no curling, just spike up with molding mud and go. And that’s why we love short hairstyles.

7 Ways to Care for Your Hair This Summer

standard July 9, 2016 4 responses

Taking care of your hair isn’t always easy. The elements cause so much damage. Wind, rain, sun, dryness, heat, not to mention the things we do styling our hair. So, let’s cut to the chase. Here are 7 ways to care for your hair this summer that will leave you feeling fantastic!

Wash Your Hair

Washing your hair properly goes a long way to keeping it healthy. Don’t over wash or it will dry your hair out. Although some people don’t wash their hair at all. Ewwwwwwwwww.

Use The Right Shampoo

2016-07-09 04.03.58

Hask with Argan Oil is one of my favorite shampoos. It’s like getting a wish from a genie with a magic lamp. Argon Oil or ‘liquid gold’ is amazing and smells incredible. It’s loaded with vitamins and antioxidants.

Condition The Hair

refreshment-438399_640

This is not the right way to condition your hair. No. No. No. Conditioning your hair is an art form that doesn’t require wet t-shirts. Fine hair? Use an oil treatment before you shampoo. Work your conditioner to the ends. Leave it on for at least five minutes for more moisture.

Drying Your Hair

Don’t be chewy. Let your hair dry naturally without using a blow dryer. Wrap your hair in something soft, unlike a fiber towel which can be hard on the hair. Don’t brush your hair wet either, it can damage and break the ends. If you do use heat to dry your hair, use a heat resistant spray to help keep the moisture inside.

I picked up this Hask Deep Conditioning pack from Sally’s and let me tell you it is amazing. But don’t deep condition all the time or you’ll look like a limp noodlehead. Just use enough to really enrich the follicles of your hair without bulking them down.

Brushing Your Hair

Brushing your hair too much can damage your hair. I like to use a comb with wide teeth to slip through the hair easier, especially to get out those nasty tangles. Even your fingers are better.

Choose the Right Products

oXaCho1ZRxWMERO76s61_Hask_Argan_Lineup

It’s okay to be picky about the products you choose to put in your hair. From shampoo to conditioner, hair masks, oils, heating sprays, gels, along with how you treat your hair, brushing, combing, hair drying, curling. All of these decisions and how you make them will help to keep your hair looking its best.

KISS Tornado 360° 1875W Ionic Dryer + Giveaway

standard November 12, 2015 70 responses

Being a former hairdresser, I’ve tried many different hair products and hair accessories and tools over the years. One of my biggest gripes has always been the infamous blow dryer because most conventional dryers shoot out heat in one direction and spot, leaving you to shake or move the dryer around your head. I don’t know about you but my arms get sore holding my dryer up and doing this to achieve even drying and fewer hot spots on your hair.

KISS Introduces The revolutionary Tornado 360° 1875W Ionic Dryer

When I first saw this dryer, I thought it didn’t appear any different than any other ordinary dryer you can purchase from any department store. But then I took a closer look and that’s when you see the differences. The KISS Tornado 360° dryer minimizes heat damage with the patent-pending 360-degree rotating booster.

Basically inside the dryer is a rotating fan that oscillates the air with rapid blowing, pushing it out in a more even way to help with drying and styling. Here are few benefits of using this great blow dryer.

Benefits & Features

  • Rotating Air Booster
  • Saves time drying hair faster
  • Provides even heat distribution, less spot heat damage
  • Dries area up to 4x larger than conventional dryers
  • No more shaking dryer to deliver comfortable drying experience
  • Patent-Pending 360° Rotating Air Booster generates a pulse within the airflow creating a revolving pattern to
  • uplift the hair and ensure complete drying with added root volume
  • Ceramic Tourmaline Technology – Allows for longer-lasting frizz-free results

KISS Tornado is extremely lightweight. I was surprised in fact as it looks and feels extremely durable in my hands but is not top heavy to hold. It has 3 temperature levels, including a cold setting which I absolutely love. The cold setting is great on this dryer if you are drying your fur babies after a bath or kids who cannot handle high heat. It has 2 airflow levels and comes with a bonus air concentrator for concentrated styling.The blow dryer is surprisingly inexpensive for how durable and awesome it is. You can pick it up for $34.96 and it’s available at Walmart Canada. I really love this product, so I want to share with you guys.  Get social with KISS on social media @kissproducts on Twitter and Instagram.

Disclosure- I received the above-mentioned product for my involvement in this campaign. All opinions are my own. No financial compensation was received.

I’m In Love With Joico Hair Shake Finishing Spray

standard October 8, 2015 Leave a response

When it comes to my hair I’m always changing, playing, cutting and coloring. So my hair take a beating, which means when it comes to hair products, I look for products that protect my hair. One of my favorite products this year I want to share is Joico Hair Shake Texturizer Finishing Spray

You will see a radical difference the moment you shake the Joico Hair Shake bottle. There’s a stainless steel ball Joico has tucked inside and it begins to work its magic. It turns the hair shake liquid to powder to immediately texturize the hair with a fine mist that provides touchable, velvety-soft (and yes it’s not sticky but soft) finish. You can layer, scrunch, play and go. Plus it provides the protection my hair needs. 

I tested out the Joico Hair Shake after giving myself a short pixie style haircut (yes I cut my own hair) and although I loved the cut without any product, it was limp and lifeless. I wanted to add some sassiness to my hair. So I waited until my hair was almost dry. Grabbing the bottle of hair shake,

I shook it well and sprayed five shots all around my head, including my bangs, and then I used my fingers to style and play with my hair. Nothing else — no curling iron, no flat iron, no blow dryer. Just hair shake and go! 

I absolutely love how easy it is for my to style my hair using Joico Hair Shake. You can see the difference immediately in the before and after photos. 

Hair Shake is great for any hair type, texture, color and especially stands out with cuts like mine (pixie) that need texture boost. Another great thing is it doesn’t weigh your hair down like many finishing sprays. You can use it after blow-drying, or grab it for instant oomph! 

Tip: Do not use hair shake on wet hair or it will feel sticky. 

You can pick up some Joico Hair Shake at Chatters or other selected salons that carry Joico products. Hair Shake retails for around $20.00 and believe me it’s totally worth it! 


 

Kiss Instawave Automatic Curling Iron

standard September 7, 2015 Leave a response

For anyone who knows me, I hate having straight hair. So thankfully, mine has curl and wave to it. But I still curl my hair and my favorite type of curl is a natural looking body/beach type wave. It’s not the easiest thing in the world to achieve this curl without looking like Shirley Temple. So when I found the Kiss Instawave Automatic Curling Iron, you bet I wanted to try it out.

I used my mom as a guinea pig to test the Kiss Instawave Iron out, mainly because mom has the straightest hair going, baby fine which doesn’t curl easy. I’m thankful she allowed me to let you all see how easy it is to use the Kiss Instawave curling iron.

 

 

I love how super fantastic the Kiss Instawave is because of how easy it is to use. It does get super hot so you need to be extra careful when using it, keep it away from the base of the skull and face. But you can curl your entire head in roughly 10 minutes. That’s how fast it is. Take a peek at moms before and after pics.
