Designer Rachel Roy is unbelievably gorgeous with superhuman shine to her hair. I recently tweeted her up, asking how she manages to keep her hair so glossy glossy. Rachel responded, “I don’t put much in my hair, but whenever I do an updo I use a little Nivea hand cream.”
Isn’t it so unfair? I could sprinkle fairy dust in my hair and it would still look a hot mess.
This holiday beauty gift pick is for that follicularly challenged chick in your life. We all have that relative or friend whose hair is so dry, damaged or downright ratnesty that we’re compelled to help. So this holiday season, instead of hooking her up with a cute hat, buy her the Best Tressed Hair Set from Carol’s Daughter.
Like the right pair of shoes, a hairdo can make or break your outfit. Starting off with gently-cleansing Rosemary Mint Shampoo with Sea Moss for dry hair is a wise choice. Layer in moisture with Black Vanilla Leave-in Conditioner. Hair Milk, a light solution for brittle hair, adds luster with the help of lemongrass and ylang-ylang. The essential oils of sage and rosemary in Lisa’s Hair Elixir help combat dry hair and scalp while peppermint gives a refreshing tingle. Mimosa Hair Honey, an herbal-infused pomade, improves manageability and tames fly-aways so that the only thing catching anyone’s eye is your gorgeous hair!
I just tried Carol’s Daughter hair products tonight, for the first time. And let me tell you…they are just as awesome as everything you’ve heard. I’m extremely embarrassed to be so tardy for the Carol’s Daughter hair party; so I’m not just jumping on the bandwagon – I’m getting behind the wheel, y’all. After using the products in the Best Tressed Hair Set, my mane (which is usually the black hole of moisture and shine) is soft, shiny, wonderfully fragranced and feels so darn healthy that I’m in a state of shock.
What’s even more amazing is the fact that these products are all natural – free of the harsh chemicals that jacked up your hair in the first place. “I wanted lots of moisture and no synthetic preservatives,” says creator Lisa Price. “If I couldn’t pronounce the ingredient, it wasn’t going into the pot.”
The Best Tressed Hair Set is the gift that keeps giving. Your homegirl, and her haphazard hair, will thank you.

If you’re “Team Jacob,” this post is for you…
New Moon star Taylor Lautner is InStyle‘s December Man of Style. When the mag asked how he keeps his hair looking so perfect, Taylor answered KMS Hairplay and Redken Rough Paste. Now what I’d really like to know is what this kid is brushing with. I dare you to find me straighter, whiter chompers in Hollywood…natural, I mean; Hillary Duff’s chicklet teeth don’t count.
Taylor’s girlfriend, Taylor Swift, graces the issue’s special 3-D cover.
Twilight Saga star Ashley Greene went from short to long, literally, overnight. Ashley stopped by Los Angeles salon Parlour on 3rd yesterday, for a NINE HOUR session to receive hair extensions, by stylist Essly Powell.
Now that Eclipse filming has wrapped, Ashley jumped at the chance to go back to her long locks. What a difference a day makes…

Remember how I told you how stoked I am to see The Princess and the Frog? Well…the excitement continues because Disney and Carol’s Daughter have collaborated on “A Magical Beauty Collection.”
Give your little princess the royal treatment with The Beauty Within Shampoo, which gently cleans as it conditions. Ultra nourishing Aloe Leaf Juice will pamper each strand, leaving hair silky-soft and tangle-free.
For shiny, silky-soft hair befitting all princesses, Inner Shine Conditioner is worth its weight in gold. Shine boosting trio Sunflower Seed, Olive and Sweet Almond Oils leave hair feeling soft, while helping tame tangles for good.
At long last, tangle-free hair is only a spray away. Dream Big Hair Detangler is a moisturizing miracle worker that gently detangles hair without any tears as it smoothes and nourishes with Cranberry and Lemon Peel Extracts. No pulling, breaking or damaging, so strands stay supple, soft and shiny. Dreams really do come true.
Make a splash with bubbles that last with Sharing Means Caring Bubble Bath. All princesses would approve this bath treat that gently cleans and calms delicate skin with moisturizing Aloe Leaf Juice. It’s the perfect cleansing companion and best when shared with bath-time friends.
A Magical Beauty Collection is available, for a limited time, at carolsdaughter.com.
