new beauty finds. Here’s what I’m getting into this month…. I found a great, fast working, hair mask from Pureology. It’s their Strength Cure Superfood Treatment. It’s a fortifying mask designed to strengthen and smooth split ends while preventing further damage. It uses Olive Oil, Goji Berry, and their signature aromatherapy blend. I’ve never had a bad experience with Purology and this mask does not disappoint.

For my skin I’m using Peach & Lilly’s Wild Dew Treatment Essence. This hydrating post cleansing step will improve skin’s radiance while fighting acne. It sinks deep into skin fast, to leave your face ready to drink up your next step. It contains lotus extract, niacinamide, yeast ferment, adenosine, bamboo extract, and radish leaf. It is refreshing and effective.

My latest makeup additon is Essence’s Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara. I love how small the brush is small to get the perfect application. It has tiny fibers to fill in caps and create fuller more tamed defined brows. 

I’m telling you to get into this entire line. If you want soft hair, this is your answer. I recently discovered the line Oi by Davines at my last hair appointment. My stylist used it on me and I had to call her later to get the details. I was touching my hair all day. I couldn’t believe how soft and light it felt. I’ve always loved Davines products and this line hits it out of the park.  “The name OI comes from the ancient Eastern idea of harmony through the balance of opposite forces. In an effort to create balance between the senses, mulitple benefits and effectiveness, OI lets you see immediate positive results from your first use.” The power ingredient is Roucou oil, which gives major shine and softness, as well as protection from environmental damage. The Shampoo and Conditioner are luxurious. My favorites are the Lightweight Oi All in one Milk and the Multi-function Oil. They detangle, control frizz, and protect from heat. So try out Oi from Davines but don’t get freaked out if everyone starts playing with your hair…..

are you taking care of your scalp? I hope so, good hair starts at the follicle. I am loving May11’s Purifying Scalp Oil, and I think you will too. May11 is a clean & organic haircare line, designed to support healthy hair growth. The Scalp oil is a detoxifying treatment made from Evening Primrose Oil, Castor Oil, and essential oils. It cleanses impurities, calms inflammation, and improves the overall condition of your scalp. I also love their Revitalizing Hair Oil. It uses four high grade oils to support healthy hair growth. It protects and nourishes your strands while enhancing the overall appearance. The May11 packaging and website provides many uses for how best to use these products. I like to use them as a before bed treatment to wake up with healthier hair. So get with May11’s luxurious oils and see why those in the beauty know are all fans…

your haircare routine. I have a new must have to add to the arsenal. I’m talking about Fave 4’s Texture Takeover hairspray. This hairspray is the perfect mix of hold with texture. It’s more touchable than most texture sprays. It gives oomph to drag hair, and wow to any style. It adds a sexy boost to your finished look. It’s a weightless lift that also has a dry shampoo functionality to it. It has a luscious agave pear smell. So get bigger, sexier hair with Fave 4, don’t worry- it happens to have a small price tag…

Gimme Bands! This is my new favorite hair elastic. I have been using their “any fit” elastics. I have very long, thick hair. These bands hold my pony in place, even through a cardio workout. They are guaranteed to retain their elasticity for over 6 months. They do not slip, or snag, and they are very easy to remove. They do not stretch out or break no matter what. They do not leave a crease. So get more from your hair elastics, they won’t let you down….can’t say the same for your sweatpants this covid season…

the results you’ll get from Natural Formula Ampule Intense Hair Mask. This mask is for dry, color treated, severely damaged hair. It contains restorative oil ampules that remain fresh until they come into contact with wet hair. It nourishes, rebuilds, and repairs hair. It improves elasticity and shine. The mask is loaded with Ceramides to strengthen and protect. So get with Natural Formula when you want results, and you want it to be intense…..

I got em, and I’m keeping them healthy. I love switching up my Shampoos and Conditioners. This month I have been using a great combo that I will definitely be purchasing again. They are both super inexpensive, yet highly effective.  I am shampooing with Loreal Paris’s Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo for Long, Damaged Hair. It is designed to save your hair from split ends so you can continue to keep it long. It uses castor oil, vitamin B3, and B5. I then condition with Garnier’s Whole Blends Repairing Conditioner Honey Treasures. This thick conditioner heals and repairs damage. It uses honey, propolis and royal jelly extracts. So try this combo and you won’t have to dream about healthy lengths ….

Restorative_Butter_Masque_03_800x
is a haircare brand you should get to know. It was created to treat both the root causes and visible signs of aging. It allows for a “renewed follicle structure and texture for healthy lustrous, vibrant hair.” Overuse of chemicals, styling products and heat can cause follicles to shrink, and damage the hair structure and inflame the scalp. Of course, if aging is not an issue for your hair, this line is still going to give you the boost you’re looking for. I have been using their Hair Redemption Restorative Butter Masque. It has Vitamin E, Mango, Macadamia, Avocado, Cupuacu, and Murumuru Butters. I find my hair is more manageable and super soft and shiny. My hair feels lighter and fresher when I use it. It is safe for color, Keratin, and chemically treated hair. So get Better Not Younger for hair, and stick with the motto for your life….
LissageDefrizzant
buy you can control your hair. I have been adding Alcame’s Lissage Smoothing Foundation to my post shower haircare routine. It is designed to leave your hair silky smooth and frizz free. It is designed for all hair types.  It will smooth out the hair cuticle while protecting from environmental and heat-induced damage. So keep your hair silky with Lissage and let go of what you can’t control…

how about 8, it’s worth it! With Loreal Paris’s Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water Lamellar Hair Treatment. I think I will be purchasing this for the rest of my life. This rinse out liquid treatment instantly makes your hair silkier, shinier, and healthier looking. You massage it in wet hair after you shampoo and before you condition. Work it in for 8 seconds, and rinse, you’re done. I could tell it had made a difference while my hair was wet. Once it dried I saw a major difference. “Wonder water works to coat the hair with moisturizing agents and an amino acid and it targets damaged areas of hair, forming small and very organized thin layers called lamellars that help smooth the surface of strands without weigh down.” So take 8 seconds for Wonder Water, and turn heads…
