Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


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

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


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

Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


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

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


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

Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


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

Why Should Robert Pattinson Have All The Fun?

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Hair, Hair Styling | Leave a comment

robert+pattinson Why Should Robert Pattinson Have All The Fun?I had such a blast messing around on Daily Makeover and photoshopping different celebrity styles onto Robert Pattinson, I decided Kristen Stewart needed a Twilight-inspired virtual makeover.

What would Kristen look like if she traded tresses with her New Moon co-stars? No need to guess; I’ve painted you some pictures. Consider this a companion piece to the previous post.

Kristen Stewart Lets Her Hair Down

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Hair Color, Hair Styling, Haircut | Leave a comment

kristen+stewart+dark+hair Kristen Stewart Lets Her Hair DownThe other day, I posted some photos of Twilight star Kristen Stewart’s new cropped, black coiff.

In those pics, her hair was pulled back and she seemed a little camera shy about revealing her new short cut.

But today, Kristen let her hair down – proudly rocking her Joan Jett inspired shag/mullet. It also appears that she’s embracing the role through her wardrobe.

living+proof+no+frizz I Cant Stand The Rain, Against My Window

Thank heavens for umbrellas and No Frizz by Living Proof. In Philadelphia, it seems like it’s been raining for 40 days and 40 nights. Seriously, I’m about ready to build me an ark.

2nd Day Hair: Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment Spray

Posted on by daneen in Hair, Hair Styling | Leave a comment

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.

ojon+restorative+hair+treatment+spray 2nd Day Hair: Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment SpraySo 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!

In the words of Black Eyed Peas’ front man, will.i.am: “Gotta get get.”

Don’t Hate. Appreciate. Oprah’s Hair is 100% Hers!

Posted on by daneen in Extensions, Hair Styling | Leave a comment

oprah+natural+hair Dont Hate. Appreciate. Oprahs Hair is 100% Hers!Ever since Oprah started styling her hair in a sleek blowout, people have been wondering if her mane was unbeweavable.

Well, the big O set the record straight on Friday’s eppy of her talk show:

“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.

Gail’s response? “Yowza!”
