This shampoo is amazing and we can’t quite pin down the scent but it is TO DIE FOR. Seriously ladies, if there is one shampoo scent that will turn your guy on – it’s this one! You will smell it when you’re trying to eat your oatmeal. You will smell it when you lean down to tie your shoes. You will smell it on your pillow. This stuff is amazing and we wish it was stronger because we literally can’t get enough.
John Frieda Frizz Ease
This stuff is great, and it’s a plus that this product also control frizz. It’s thick and at times can weigh down the hair, so we like to use this in the winter when our hair is extra dry. The scent is similar to Sebastian Light and because it is a little thicker, the scent seems to last longer.
Philosophy Amazing Grace
Okay, so I have to admit that I’ve seen this product so many times and I’m not sure if it was the packaging or what, but I never wanted to give this a chance until recently. This product is lovely and has a very clean and floral scent, perfect for the classy girls who want a delicate and feminine fragrance in their locks!
Victoria Secret SO SEXY
Okay, so I’m pretty sure you can’t get this at your local drugstore, however I wanted to add it to the list. I found this product in my girlfriends bathroom and almost giggled at the name, however, this product IS so sexy! I kid you not, this smells amazing and lasts ALL DAY. Literally, all day AND the next day. It’s bold and saturated, musky and floral. If you want to draw any lover in, then this is definitely a good one to use.
The most amazing thing about being a woman is that we can bounce back from almost anything, and so can our hair! Summer activities like going to the beach and swimming in a chlorine-filled pool can cause our hair to dry out and become brittle so it’s important to pay a little extra attention to your hair to ensure those locks are gorgeous all summer long!
Never brush your hair when its wet. When our hair is wet, the follicles are weakened and are more prone to breaking.
Never apply heat to your hair when wet. When heat is applied to wet hair, it completely withdraws the moisture from your hair. Instead, wait for your hair to dry or use the cool setting on the hair dryer and then use the hot setting.
Always apply a heat protective spray. This adds moisture to your hair, preventing the natural moisture from evaporating and enabling your hair to keep its natural shine. These are our absolute favorites below:
Lastly, the ultimate healthy hair tip is to use a hair balm in the shower!
When you blow dry, flat iron or chemically treat your hair, you end up with wick, rough hair with split ends. Heat completely ruins the body of your hair and you won’t get that same shine which is why you MUST use a hair balm! Hair balms coat each strand of hair and seal in the moisture making each follicle smoother than ever. This truly makes our hair look beautiful and brings back our hair after years of styling! The balm is to be applied while your hair is still warm after you have shampooed and conditioned. If you have fine hair apply the product mid-way down, if you have thicker hair you can apply at the root. Massage it in for about 5 minutes and then rinse. By applying this when your hair is warm from the shower, your hair follicles are more absorbent of the product, allowing it to work it’s magic from the inside out. The product we use is L’Oreal’s Total Repair 5 System and it does absolute wonders! You can now officially say “goodbye” to dry dull hair and hello to healthy silky soft locks!
We’re loving this look from The Beauty Department! It’s SO effortless but pretty and chic at the same time! All you have to do is tie a SMALL CLEAR ELASTIC mid-way towards the end of your hair and wrap your hair into a bun as you normally would and let the tail drop.
TIP: make sure to texturize your hair with either dry shampoo or a thickening spray to give the bun volume and hold the hair strands together. Lastly, when finished, use hairspray to keep the look in place.
Primerose oil is a “cure all” kind of supplement for women because it:
Balances out hormones
Relieves menstrual cramps
Ripens a woman’s uterus for labor
If you can’t already tell, Primerose Oil is a MUST for any woman at any stage of life! For women thinking of one day having children, women who are currently pregnant or women who have had multiple children, this supplement increases the quality of mucus in our uterus and keeps our reproductive system working at it’s most optimal!
Fun fact: Because Primerose oil contains an abundance of omega-6 essential acids, this supplement has been known to be highly effective at growing long lushes locks! Take 5000mg twice a day, apply it topically to your scalp or even add it to your shampoo for extra hair benefits!
I personally used to hate dry shampoo because it would turn my roots white and my hair looked even worse! My hair looked so bad that I would end up having to wash it just because the white would not come out. However today, LOW AND BEHOLD, dry shampoo is my best friend! The trick is to spray it on your part, then spray 1-2 sections next to your part and lastly spray throughout while feathering your hair. (Give your hair about an hour to absorb the product before brushing it out profusely and freaking out about the white residue. It will blend.) When the dry shampoo eventually absorbs the oil, your hair will look like a goddess–perfectly dry, voluminous and texturized. Because the spray is drying, it coats your hair with a thin layer of product, making your hair feel and look a lot thicker!
SPRAYING TOO CLOSE–If your hair is oily like mine, the product needs to coat not only your scalp but half-way down your hair follicle. Spray about a rulers-length away for about 3 seconds each time.
SPRAYING TOO MUCH–as mentioned above, you don’t want to spray for more than 3 seconds at a time. Allow it to absorb for a minute and check to see if it has turned white… If it still looks oily, then reapply sparingly. If you do spray too much, allow your hair 30 minutes to absorb before brushing it out.
IMMEDIATELY RUBBING IT IN–You don’t want to do this. Let the product fully dry, yes, that means allowing it to turn white. Then wait a few minutes to a half-hour to allow the product to set in. By doing this, you are letting the product fully do its job and blend with your oils.
We all want long and healthy hair, but how can we get it long enough without the ends looking dry, or worse—splitting! Follow our top 5 hair secrets that will make you stand out from the crowd!
Every morning. Extra strength. Forget that it says “for people who are severely lacking biotin.” If it was dangerous the FDA would not have put it out on the market. (And believe me, there are stronger doses.)
A little oil never hurt nobody. The natural oil that our hair produces is the best and most affordable way to nourish and moisturize hair–leaving it shinier and healthier. Try to wash hair every OTHER day. So lets say you have a special date this Saturday and want to wash your hair, wait until Monday to wash it again. In addition, try to skip the shampoo and use conditioner for one of the washes. This will give your hair a mini break from the shampoo, which strips your hair of its natural oils, and will still keep your hair smelling and feeling fresh.
This is one of the greatest ways to thicken your hair! Massaging stimulates oil production and blood circulation, allowing more oxygen and nutrients to reach your hair follicles. Again, oil is our friend, embrace it! We want that oil to coat and condition our hair because that is what will make it strong, long and bomb!
Coconut hair masks are one of the easiest and oldest tricks in the Bombette beauty book! Just add coconut oil. Shh! Bombette secret– lightly warm it up before applying. The heat of the oil will better penetrate your hair follicles allowing for a deeper condition.
Red wine is not only good for your heart but also your hair! Remember what I said about how massaging your head increases blood circulation? Well, red wine does the same thing! You can drink it or add it to your coconut hair masks!
We filter our drinking water, but what are the benefits of filtering the water you shower and wash your hair with? Filtering our shower removes chlorine from water to improve hair health, color vibrancy and retention while giving your skin a smoother, softer and healthier appearance. It’s clinically proven to reduce frizz while enhancing shine, body and comb-ability. Companies like T3 have come out with handheld filtration systems that are inexpensive and easy to install.
The crisp winter air feels amazing, but it wreaks havoc on hair. Static and frizz can make it impossible to get your tresses under control. These serums help hydrate and tame your hair to keep it shiny and healthy. Another tip if you can stand the cold for a couple seconds, drench your hair in cold water after you finish shampooing and conditioning. This seals up the hair shaft and makes hair super shiny!
Having amazing hair doesn’t mean breaking the bank. There are so many hair products out there that do amazing things for your hair without the hefty price tag. Drugstores and stores like Target have an amazing selection of haircare products that are totally affordable and work even better than the salon versions.
