My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING
The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish.
Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING
Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle.
Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING
I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING
Pop quiz, hot shot. How many times a week do I wash my hair per week?
If you’ve been paying attention, you know that more than one shampoo every seven days would have me looking like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (I picked him cuz he’s pretty). My hair’s just so dang fine and brittle.
On day one, my hair is looking okay. 24 hours post-shampoo, my hair is looking quite fab…if I do say so, myself. But on the seventh day, my tresses are looking tore up and terrible. At the end of the week, I have to coat my hair in creams, balms and shine serums just to comfortably walk down the street without eliciting ‘who let the crazy girl outta the asylum?’ stares. And even then, I need to pull my hair back into a ponytail to prevent nature from taking its disastrous course.
So I’m elated to report that I’ve found a product that gives me a 2nd day hair look on day seven! Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment Spray is enriched with Ojon and Swa oils, and infuses hair with a nourishing dose of omega 3, 6, and 9 essential fatty acids while adding shine. It can be used daily (and even layered throughout the day) without weighing hair down or causing buildup.
Basically, it’s Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment in a fine mist formula. You spray it on dry hair, and it’s like a wake-up call for dry, damaged and/or limp locks…reviving your style and imparting weightless sheen. For additional volume, just flip your head upside down and spray the root area. One thing to note: this product is not a hairspray; it doesn’t give hair any hold whatsoever. So if that’s what you were hoping for, too bad. It’s great for someone like me who doesn’t wash her hair every day, because it means you can spray day after day without leaving your hair crispy and crunchy.
Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment Spray is a QVC exclusive, so don’t bother trying to track down a can elsewhere.
Next up on my Ojon shopping list…
Restorative Leave-in Treatment: Replenish much-needed moisture to your hair with this leave-in restorative gel. Packaged in a pump bottle, it uses Ojon and Swa oils to add shine and hydration to hair. Dispense one to three pumps into your palm, and rub hands together. Apply evenly throughout damp hair. Finish with a blow dryer or let your hair air dry.
Restorative Pre-Cleansing Treatment: This product is billed as the Restorative Hair Treatment, in a super-concentrated, in-shower formula. Before shampooing, emulsify a quarter-sized amount between your palms and apply to dry or damp hair. Comb hair gently from roots to ends to distribute evenly, and leave in for up to five minutes before rinsing. The founder of Ojon says the Restorative Pre-Cleansing Treatment is so amazing that it eliminates the need for conditioner!

“Am I wearing a weave? Everybody’s like, ‘Oprah, we love your weave.’ This is not a weave, this is my hair.” And to prove that she speaks the truf, Oprah shared this photo of her mane in all of it’s natual glory. “This is what my hair looks like. This is me before it gets pressed and curled in the morning,” she continued.
