If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian. I CONTINUE READING

Lately, my hair has been smelling like fish…and I love it!

ag fastfood Addicted To Fast Food, Plus An AG Giveaway!AG Hair Cosmetics fast food leave on condition nourishes and detangles my dehydrated hair. Plus the delish, saccharine scent reminds me of Swedish Fish – one of my four major food groups when I was in college.

fast food’s light cream formula doesn’t weigh down my baby fine locks, and helps prevent split ends, adds moisture, and shine. AG’s #1 conditioner is especially effective on coarse, thick hair.

Oscar Blandi Perfects The Bed Head

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

blandi kayne Oscar Blandi Perfects The Bed Head
For her Fall 2008 collection, Jenni Kayne was inspired by the 90’s grunge scene and styles from the 30’s and 40’s. For the hair, she wanted the models to look “real,” so hairstylist Oscar Blandi created sophisticated, bed-head hairstyles to compliment the designs.

Creating these “very organic and very earthy” dos is a little more involved that one might think – just as a nude makeup look requires more than taupe shadow and a swipe of lip balm. I mean, does anyone really wake up looking this chic?

First, the mane maestro used Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo, which refreshes and revives hair by removing dirt and buildup. Next, he sprayed Oscar Blandi Volumizing Spray on hair, concentrating on the roots; this heat-activated product adds body and texture to hair, while providing flexible hold and incredible shine. He finished the styles with Proteine di Jasmine – Protein Mist for Restyling Hair, which allows hair to withstand heat and prevents static.

Though not used at Jenni Kaye’s presentation, worth a mention is Oscar Blandi’s Olio di Jasmine Shine Spray, a convenient new version of Oscar’s Jasmine Oil Serum. This spray moisturizes and controls frizz, and makes locks lustrous. I especially appreciate the light formula, which doesn’t build-up or weight down my fine hair.

All products are available at Beauty.com.

Salon Selectives Is Back

salonselectives Salon Selectives Is Back
Remember Salon Selectives? The popular brand of the ‘80s and ‘90s that made women feel like they just stepped out of a salon? Well, Salon Selectives is hoping to capitalize on nostalgia and get back into the hair grooming game.

“The re-introduction of Salon Selectives represents a great opportunity for our company,” said Dr. Eugene Zeffren, CEO of SSB, the company that distributes and markets Salon Selectives. “Our research shows that the brand still has over 80 percent awareness among our target consumers. These women don’t just remember the Salon Selectives name, they retain a host of other positive associations, including the apple scent and the customized hair care message – they can even sing the jingle.”

Starting in March 2008, Salon Selectives will be returning to the shelves with updated packaging and new formulas – but will retain trademarks such as pink bottles, apple fragrance, and customization.

There are 18 items in the line, with three shampoos, five conditioners and 10 styling and treatment products – ten of which are now available for purchase on drugstore.com. And according to Women’s Wear Daily, the marketing plan includes TV and print ads that will run startng beginning in April.

I so hope they resurrect the old jingle. Speaking of which, check out this old-school Salon Selectives commercial I dug up on YouTube. Perhaps this will jog your memory…

Good Hair Days Are Made Of This

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

I sure know how to pick ‘em…

ojontamer Good Hair Days Are Made Of ThisSo without having heard anything about Ojon’s new Rare Harvest Tunu Elastik Hair Tamer, I picked it up on a whim during a recent trip to Sephora. Ojon has yet to disappoint me, so I took a chance on this $25 leave-in hair relaxer/de-frizzing balm.

Here’s what the package promised:
* imparts a soft, flexible smoothness to all hair types
* naturally seals the cuticle to stay sleek
* eliminates frizz caused by humidity
* provides a moisture barrier
* formulated without alcohol and silicone
* perfect for all hair types – straight, curly, permed, or relaxed

Does it deliver? You betcha! I took the bottle to Erik, my hairstylist, when I went to the salon yesterday evening. We were both surprised by how smooth and glossy my hair was after blowdrying – and its gel/mousse hybrid texture doesn’t weigh my fine hair down. Best of all, it’s snowing/sleeting/freezing raining here in Philly – but you wouldn’t know it to look at my hair. Even one of my co-workers remarked this morning. My hair has been looking seriously jacked up for weeks…so I was super excited to get a compliment – you don’t even know. I was doing the happy dance. And I have Ojon (and Erik) to thank.

Bottom line: Go get this stuff right now. It’s $23.50 on QVC, but if you buy it at Sephora and you don’t like it for whatever reason, returning it is a breeze. But chances are you won’t return it, cuz I know you’re gonna love it!
