MAKE UP MONDAY: Brazilian Blow Out

DSC_0086

Here they are- the newest products that I am trying out!

I am always open for suggestions, from you guys, friends, and the lovely women who work in the shops that I frequent. These Brazilian Blow Out products are a personal favorite of the sales girl in the Beauty Shop in Austin. These two are also a big seller, and although they weren’t cheap, I already see why!

These products are for non-washing days. And although I hate when I have dirty hair, I have a few non-washing days a week.

The Instant Volume Body Booster (whew, what a name) has a bit of grit that really helps give body to my super straight hair. On days that I work out but don’t wash my hair, my locks can fall rather flat. And if dry shampoo isn’t cutting it for giving my hair a boost, this new powder is my friend. However, I’m not sure I’ll buy it again, since it was $20 and makes it so I have to wash my hair the night I use it, since it’s just way too much grit for me to sleep in.

I only need a little of the Volume Boost spray on the left, and this lifts my hair up while I blow dry. I recently learned that you are not supposed to touch your hair with a brush while you blow dry, especially if you blow dry hair wet from the shower. It can damage the cuticle. So I have to figure out how to get a nice lift without constant brushing and touching my fragile wet hair, and this shining & lifting product is great.

What hair products have you tried lately? Let me know!

Have a great day,

Make Up Monday: My Blowdryer!

It’s time for my Make Up Monday post.  I’m cheating a bit since today I’ve chosen to write about blow dryers, which are more hair than make up.

I am a big believer in spending some money for a  really good blow dryer.  I use the T3 featherweight.  It lives up to its promises to dry fast and reduce frizz… plus it has the cool blast button, strategically placed, that sets in the style.

It uses something called ‘tourmaline ionic’ as part of its magic.  I have no idea what that is – but I do know that it reduces my drying time significantly.  Styling my hair is the biggest getting ready time suck for me so I love any help I can get in cutting that prep time down.

I purchased this blow dryer because it had a lot of the features that my stylist’s blow dryer had at a pretty good price point (at or just under $130).

Though…I am looking into the new Harry Josh that is all the buzz.  It’s expensive at $300 but all the reviews say worth it because of the power and the look it gives your hair.

Stay tuned… if I break down and invest I’ll be sure to share.

What are your blow dryer recommendations?  Share Please!
