This Product Gives Me the Heebie-Jeebies

I’ve often shared the fact the most lip glosses make my lips feel suffocated. I don’t think this is a serious issue, or maybe I do have issues! In my defense, it’s really the only category that makes me feel physically uncomfortable, well, in addition to this next one, which I’ve never talked about until now.

So which other beauty product gives me the heebie-jeebies?? Click after the jump to find out!

5 Favorite … Hair Helpers

KERASTASE Forme Fatale Voluptuous Blow-Dry Gel ($35/4.2oz, $182.1oz @ – for some reason I’ve been into having quite big hair these days and since I’m not that great at teasing my hair (it just doesn’t last!), I’ve been relying on this blow-dry gel to get me there and it has the bonus of UV and heat protection.

2. SCHWARZKOPF Igora Expert Mousse ($13.95/3.2oz @ - give your current color a kick with this one. This colour mousse lasts up to 8 washes and is super easy to use – just apply to towel-dried hair, leave on about 20 minutes and jump back in the shower and rinse. My color is 5-88 (light brown red extra) and it gives my hair just the right amount of boost without the commitment. Choose from different 13 shades!

3. SALLY HERSHBERGER 3-in-1 Volumizing Spray ($12.99/8.5oz @ – Since I want to keep my red hair red for longer than a few weeks, I rely on dry shampoos a lot. And this new one is infused with caffeine so I guess you could say it really gets my hair moving! Ok, not that funny but this does give strands some volume and texture to get you through the day.

4. FROM THE LAB Transforming Hair Cleanser No. 724 ($19.95/5oz @ – this one is 180 degrees from what you’re used to using on your hair in the shower. First, it doesn’t lather up, which might not be comfortable for some people but I’m telling you, the final results are worth it. It uses raspberry stem cell extract (to nourish the scalp), Andiroba Oil (for its omega-3 fatty acids), vitamin E, Castor Seed and Almond oils to do all the work – shampoo, condition and detangle. Yup, all in one!

5. REDKEN Move Ability 05 from the New Flex Collection ($19/1.7oz @ – I’ve often been tempted to cut off all my hair just so I can use all the pomades, waxes and sculpting gels out there but, sigh, I like it long. But with this Move Ability 05, I don’t have to! It’s a light cream-paste that I’ve been using to define the ends of my hair after blow drying.

Coupla Leave-In Conditioners to Welcome Fall

When it comes to the changing of hot, hot to cooler weather, I always feel the need to add a leave-in conditioner in my hair. Here are two I’ve been using the past few weeks. Do you prefer your leave-in in a spray or lotion form?

SCHWARZKOPF BC Hairtherapy Moisture Kick Spray Conditioner ($21/6.8oz @ - contains a Hyaluronic Acid Derivative to balance the water content and Amino Cell Rebuild Technology to repair the hair cell structure. This is a good one for long hair.

MARCO PELUSI Marco Anti-Frizz Leave-in Conditioner with Collagen Color Guard ($10/25 2oz travel size @ – I am all about not only protecting my bright red hair color but also my Brazilian treatment so using only products that are formulated for this is my priority. This leave-in contains vitamin E and apricot oils as well as cetrimonium chloride, which is naturally derived from coconuts and knows as a super potent anti-frizz ingredient.

Wanna Prevent Split Ends? Here's A Product That Will Do Just That.

Schwarzkopf-Professional-BC-Hairtherapy-Repair-Rescue-Sealed-EndsIs it possible to repair split ends? I mean, I was always of the school that the only way to repair was to literally cut them off but it seems that more brands are coming out with products to repair of infuse the split strand ‘s end back together.

Part of their Repair Rescue line comes SCHWARZKOPF PROFESSIONAL’s BC Hairtherapy Repair Rescue Sealed Ends treatment for damaged ends. The formula features their own Amino Cell Rebuild and Biomimetic Repair Technology that will help prevent split ends, not fix the ones you already have. That I can go with.

It’s applied to towel-dried hair before blow-drying from the middle of stands to the ends. And since seeing is believing and I’ve only been using this for the past month, my ends do seem to be less frayed but I will continue to use it as part of my hair regimen. $21/2.6oz @
