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.

I know, I know – HAIR!! Always about the hair! No use fighting how much it matters to our overall look.
I have developed a hair care routine that addresses all my issues. I have longish hair, aging hair, colored hair and I live in a sun harsh climate. So how to keep these tresses of mine looking healthy?
First, no more daily washing for me. As much as I hated to stop it, it wasn’t helping my hair anymore. So like a lot of other things, I gave it up. On the days I do shampoo my hair, I use my Redken Extreme more often than not, then apply Redken Extreme conditioner.
Next I put on a shower cap and leave the conditioner on using the heat of the shower water to boost the therapeutic softening effects of the conditioner. I leave rinsing until very last, letting the conditioner stay on as long as I possibly can. If I’ve got some time to spare, I get out of the shower, cap and all, and sit for 15 to 30 minutes before rinsing off the conditioner.
Before blow drying, I use ‘It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-in Product.’
Those days when I don’t wash, I use a dry shampoo. Oribe is among my favorites. Another is Oscar Blandi. To keep the ends fresh, I apply U Luxury Argon Oil and finish by styling with heat; sometimes curlers, sometimes the flat iron.
