Hair Products to Help the Transition

The season once again is on deck to change! Will you be updating your hair styling products and tools? Here are a few to get you at least thinking about it.

Nexxus-Bumble-and-Bumble-Redken-Spornette-Sephora-hair-care-brushes NEXXUS Maxximum Super Hold Styling and Finishing Mist ($10.55/10oz @ – transitioning from one season to another can wreak havoc on strands. They don’t know what to do! This one will keep strays and flyaways at bay.

REDKEN Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam ($6.99/2oz @ – we have all seen that big hair is coming back in a big way. And where does big hair start? The roots of course! This foam will boost strands to get them standing at attention.

BUMBLE AND BUMBLE Mending Masque ($37/5oz @ – let’s face it, if your hair is ratty and out of shape, nothing you try is going to help so make sure you get it back in line with a good hair mask like this one.

A change in the season means a change in my hair brush. After all, the materials that style and go though your hair have a life span as well. And they don’t have to look all boring and functional anymore. Take these two for example. This SPORNETTE Hypnotique #5902 Purple Paddle Brush ($26.95 @ combines nylon and 100% boars bristles and is a great staple everyday brush while SEPHORA’s Bamboo Boar Brush ($12 @ has a ceramic-coated barrel and, as the name states, all boar hair bristles. And the thinness of it makes it easy for wielding.

Confused About Surfactants in Hair Care? Read This...


I’ve been back and forth here about the topic of surfactants (Sodium Laureth Sulfates, Sodium Laurel Sulfates, SLS’s) in shampoos. For a while now, I thought that if a shampoo had SLS’s in it, it could not be used on color-treated hair as in, it would not make it last. Period. End of story. How did I come to this conclusion? Probably from a lot of things I read, heard, and the trend of sulfate-free products coming out didn’t help either (and do you remember a few years ago when I discovered that just because a shampoo is sulfate-free doesn’t mean it will make you hair color last any longer? Yup, it’s a confusing world!).

I’ve been lucky enough to come across some major hair people lately and decided to ask them their opinion about SLS’s and if yes, they do kill hair color, or not.

New Bumble and Bumble Hair Masque!

BumbleConditioners are getting better and better and that’s good because it really ruins my day when I use a bad one, as I’m sure you can imagine. I should have known it would be a good experience with BUMBLE AND BUMBLE’s new Crème de Coco Masque ($24/5oz @ as their products have a good track record with me. It uses the same coconut and vegetable base like all their products and they added a powerful trio to this one: mango, shea and murumuru (a palm found in the Amazon Rain Forests).


Since this is a hair mask, you can leave it on your hair for a few minutes or leave it on for longer and apply this at the same time if you really want to really to get the most out of it. And they even recommend it for those of us that color our strands. Yeah!

Work It, Girl, With Bumble and Bumble

BumbleI’m a little skeptical when a brand does a huge launch because either I am usually very happy or loathe it and there is usually no middle ground. BUMBLE AND BUMBLE’s new Spray de Mode ($15/4oz, $25/10oz @ for sure goes under the list of greats. Not since this one have I come across a hair spray that is so workable. It holds, keeps the frizz at bay yet still lets a woman change her mind and comb it out easily. And they didn’t even test this spray on models! They used real people found on myspace. Nice marketing concept.
