What To Use When Your Hair Is Tore Up, From The Split Ends Up

phytospecific+vital+force What To Use When Your Hair Is Tore Up, From The Split Ends UpThe label for PhytoSpecific’s Vital Force Shampoo and Conditioner indicates that the products are meant for “Curly, Frizzy, or Relaxed Hair.” To be more accurate, the packaging should say: “If your hair is tore up, from the split ends up, open up your wallet.”

The shampoo and conditioner don’t smell very good; the smell isn’t awful, but it’s definitely not something that’s going to engender deep breathing or orgasmic outbursts – like in the old skool Herbal Essences commercials. But the fragrance is a non-issue for me, because the products work so fabulously.

The Vital Force Shampoo hydrates and deeply nourishes very dry, damaged, and brittle hair. Since I started using it, I’ve noticed that my hair feels more moisturized and less brittle – and my hair breakage has decreased significantly.

The Vital Force Crème Bath is a conditioner with high concentrations of shea butter, jojoba oil and sesame oil – which penetrate the hair’s cuticle to deposit vitamins and nutrients that tore up hair is craving. The conditioner’s gummy texture is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced…I’ve been using it for a month, and I still marvel every time I get in the shower. But once you rub it between your hands, it transforms into a creamy consistency that glides through hair.

Usually when I apply conditioner, I’m too lazy to comb it through; but the Vital Force Crème Bath is so amazing that I make sure to always work it through with a wide-tooth comb – to ensure that no strand misses out on its gummy goodness.

PhytoSpecific Vital Force Shampoo and Crème Bath conditioner are available at Sephora and beauty.com.

Blowout at Ted Gibson Salon Blows My Mind!

ted+gibson+salon Blowout at Ted Gibson Salon Blows My Mind!

Yesterday morning after arriving in NYC for Fashion Week and dropping my bags off at the hotel, I high-tailed it to the Ted Gibson Salon on 5th Avenue.

 Blowout at Ted Gibson Salon Blows My Mind!Jason Backe, who recently dyed my hair to the most gorge hot chocolate hue, arranged for Amber and me to get our tresses blown out. Vincenza, before shampooing me with Ted Gibson Clarity Color Shampoo (which smells DIVINE, by the by), was shocked by the softness of my hair. She was even more astounded when I told her it was thanks to Nice ‘N Easy ColorSeal Conditioning Gloss.

Laisam rubbed a Ted Gibson Hair Sheet on my towel-dried hair to rejuvinate my locks and protect against UV rays and environmental damage, then she blowed out my hair to perfection. While Laisam skillfully styled my hair, she entertained me with funny stories about her mom – whose crazy antics remind me a lot of Mama Spoiled Pretty.

Before Laisam sent me on my way, to grace New York with my bomb blowout, she rubbed a little shine serum on my hair to make it shine like the top of the Chrystler building. This product isn’t yet on shelves, as Ted is still testing it…but Laisam has a great pet name for it; she calls it “crack juice” because once you use it, it becomes an addiction.

Once you turn crack, you never turn back.

Wish I Was In Hot Water

loreal+everpure+moisture+shampoo Wish I Was In Hot WaterHappy Sunday, everyone. I hope that you all are enjoying your weekend and finding some time to relax and spoil yourselves pretty.

I’m sitting on the sofa with shampoo in my hair and a shower cap on top to prevent drippage – because Mr. Spoiled Pretty used up all of the hot water. Halfway through my shower routine, the water turned ice-cold…so I’m waiting for our inept hot water heater to get it’s head in the game.

Luckily, I picked a gentle shampoo to test today. Everpure Moisture Shampoo is a new vegan, sulfate-free formula from L’Oreal…so I’m pretty sure that my hair won’t be worse for wear after waiting 30 minutes for some agua caliente.

Okay…gonna go rinse now. Click here to check out the entire L’Oreal EverPure line of products.

Product Polygamy Week: Hair

product+polygamy+week Product Polygamy Week: Hair
Woo woo! Party over here! Party over here!

Welcome to day three of Product Polygamy Week, Spoiled Pretty’s celebration of the beauty items that get big love from me and my girl, Amber.

SHAMPOO
The Barb:
Frederic Fekkai Technician Shampoo For Dry, Damaged, Color-Treated Hair
Looking for a shampoo that will nurture your tortured tresses and restore their good health? Then look no further than Frederic Fekkai Technician Shampoo For Dry, Damaged, Color-Treated Hair. Your hair needn’t be dry, damaged, and color-treated to enjoy this product. As long as your strands are one of the above, they will reap the rewards of this sublime shampoo.

The Nicki: Barry Fletcher Moisture Therapy Honeysuckle Moisturizing Shampoo
This is all I have to say…Barry Fletcher’s Moisture Therapy Honeysuckle Moisturizing Shampoo left my hair so silky smooth that I almost didn’t need conditioner. What more is there to say? Oh yeah – an 8 oz. bottle is only $7.

The Margene: Bumble and bumble Creme De Coco Shampoo
creme+de+coco+shampoo Product Polygamy Week: HairMade with coconut oil and murumuru butter, Bumble and bumble Creme De Coco Shampoo gently cleanses, supremely moisturizes, enhances shine and tames frizz. Still need convincing? Peep this – it smells like a frothy pina colada. Bottoms up!

CONDITIONER
The Barb:
Barry Fletcher Moisture Therapy Revitalizing Conditioner
Nothing makes my hair softer or more manageable than Barry Fletcher’s Moisture Therapy Revitalizing Conditioner. It hydrates, strengthens, and leaves my strands implausibly silken. Plus it smells just like a pina colada (are you noticing a pattern here?) and costs $10 for a tub.

The Nicki: Moroccanoil Masque
moroccanoil+masque Product Polygamy Week: HairThe people responsible for the Moroccanoil hair care line must practice magic and wizardry. That’s the only explanation I can come up with that could possibly account for the products’ supernatural powers. Moroccanoil Masque is a rich, creamy treatment, designed to hydrate and repair damaged hair. With continued use, it revitalizes hair, restoring shine and manageability.

The Margene: Joico K Pak Deep Penetrating Reconstructor
If your hair is over-processed, severely damaged and/or you suffer from breakage, then Joico K Pak Deep Penetrating Reconstructor is the answer. This is not – and I repeat NOT – a moisturizing product. This is a hair reconstructor; it rebuilds and improves the structure of your hair. After just one use, you’ll notice that there’s less hair in your comb/brush, your hair looks healthier and it feels stronger. Just remember to follow this up with a moisturizing treatment, because too much protein can make hair strong but also brittle.

STYLING PRODUCT
The Barb:
Moroccanoil Oil Treatment
If you go out and buy just one thing off this list, let it be Moroccanoil Oil Treatment. There aren’t enough hours in the day for me to accurately describe how this magical elixir has changed my life. I’m a beauty blogger, so I have to test and review a plethora of products. Which means that I have to switch it up all of the time. But the one hair product I CANNOT take out of the rotation is Moroccanoil Oil Treatment. This amazing oil strengthens brittle hair, softens unmanageable manes, nourishes dry scalp, restores shine, eliminates frizz, protects against UV damage, speeds styling time by 40% and provides long-term conditioning to all hair types. I don’t know one person who’s tried it an thought, “meh.” Use it once and you’ll want to buy it in bulk so you’re never without it.

The Nicki: Redken Extreme Iron Repair
You’ve heard it time and time again…take it easy on the thermal styling tools. But your hair just looks too damn good when you’ve had a nice blowout and you touch it up with the flat iron. I know, I know. I’m guilty too. So if you’re like me and determined to be a blowdrying, flat-ironing badass, please invest in a thermal protector like Redken Extreme Iron Repair. This lightweight, heat-activated lotion protects hair from heat-styling damage while strengthening the internal and external fiber. And it eases your guilty conscience when you’re putting hot tools in your hair every five minutes.

The Margene: No Frizz by Living Proof
living+proof Product Polygamy Week: HairOkay, I lied. Remember when I said if you buy one thing on this list, make it Moroccanoil Oil Treatment? Well, I forgot that I would also be including No Frizz by Living Proof on said list. No Frizz is a revolutionary new hair care line that contains a brand new molecule that does what silicones can’t: eliminate frizz by blocking out humidity. No Frizz by Living Proof is the winner of Allure Magazine’s most coveted beauty honor: the ‘beauty breakthrough award’ of 2008. Already an insider favorite to stylists and celebrities, it hasn’t been available to the general public until recently. Then it hit the market, but you couldn’t find it anywhere because beauty zealots were snatching it up in bulk, like they were on an eppy of Supermarket Sweep. Sounds crazy, but this stuff is serious; it was created by a scientist at MIT!

Since I’ve been using this, frizz isn’t even a word in my dictionary. I forgot what it meant because – rain or shine – my hair looks exactly the same. Hot mess, puffball hair begone! And one thing I absolutely love about these products…it instructs you to apply as much as you want, that you can’t overdo it. I love glopping on some styling products, so a product line that lets me go hog wild (but won’t let me overdo it) gets an A+ in my book.

My partner in crime, Amber, is hair obsessed. So you know she’ll have some great product picks. Go check her out and I’ll see you tomorrow…same time, same place.
