Go Ahead – Rain On My Parade

rain Go Ahead – Rain On My Parade
Humidity is my hair’s archenemy. Just the slightest bit of moisture in the air results in serious tress distress. As soon as the meteorologist mentions rain in the 5-day forecast, my hair starts misbehaving. So imagine my surprise when yesterday, in the middle of a Philadelphia freezing-rainstorm, I was that girl you love to hate. You know…the girl whose hair always looks divine, rain or shine.

So what’s my hair’s new secret weapon against the evil winter elements? I’ve been using Profound Beauty’s Stylist Linear Serum and Linear Cream.

 Go Ahead – Rain On My ParadeAfter washing and conditioning my hair, I mix equal parts of the serum and cream in my hands and apply to towel-dried hair. The lightweight, silicone-based serum seals and protects the hair cuticle; and the cream, a blend of silicone and emollients, smoothes and softens my mutinous mane. The result is sleek, straight hair that resists humidity and doesn’t weigh hair down. In fact, I was somewhat dumbfounded at how the products managed to simultaneously straighten and add volume to my baby fine locks.

If you really want to push it, and have the girls at work seething with jealousy, finish off your do with Structure Shine – a serum that imparts long-lasting luster while protecting hair from heat styling.

Here’s The Skinny

Fall has finally come to Philadelphia. Unfortunately, it brought steady rain and winds with it. On days like today, when I don’t feel like doing to much to my hair – because I know the weather will just un-do it – I pull it back into a pony or bun, then reach for a skinny headband. It adds polish to an otherwise bland hairstyle.

This look works better on hair that has a little texture, so if you’re working with freshly-washed hair, use a product like Ojon Animated Styling Cream or Dirt Texturizing Paste by Jonathan Product. To keep the headband in place all day, lightly spray the underside with hairspray before sliding into place.

Nordstrom has some gorgeous headbands, but I suggest getting more bang for your buck by purchasing yours at someplace like Urban Outftters.

Spoiled Pretty Tip: If traditional headbands give you a headache, look for ones with elastic banding on the back.
