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.

Kim Vo’s New Haircare Line

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

kimvo Kim Vos New Haircare LineKim Vo’s new haircare line mixes old school with new school. The celebrity hairstylist’s products marry Vietnamese botanicals and French Nanotechnology.

As a child, Vo used to watch his Vietnamese grandmother wash her hair with rice wine to make it shine. So when he set out to create his line of hair products, naturally, he asked her to consult. The ingredients in Vo’s line include rice, soy, lotus, and seaweed. But the line’s secret weapon is Boket, known for thousands of years in Vietnam as the secret to beautiful, healthy hair. Boket pods have a high sugar content – which locks in moisture and nutrients, and results in a silky, shiny hair.

vo Kim Vos New Haircare LineME-10, created by the latest French nanotechnology, is the second main active ingredient in the line. The scientifically advanced silicone conditions dry, damaged locks. It also extends and enhances hair color because it penetrates the cuticle on a cellular level.

The Kim Vo product line includes: Moisturizing Shampoo, Moisturizing Conditioner, Moisturizing Masque, Volumizing Shampoo, Volumizing Conditioner, Volumizing Masque, Styling Crème, Dry Serum, Glaze, Root Booster, Weightless Hairspray, and Texturizing Paste.

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…

Pay The Cost To Be The Boss (Of Your Hair)

shampoo Pay The Cost To Be The Boss (Of Your Hair) conditioner Pay The Cost To Be The Boss (Of Your Hair)
I normally wouldn’t advocate spending more than $15-20 on shampoo or conditioner; but when you have hair with behavioral problems like mine, well, sometimes you’ve gotta pay the cost to be the boss.

Philip B White Truffle Shampoo and White Truffle Nourishing Hair Conditioning Creme impart moisture, elasticity, and shine to chemically processed, dry, or damaged hair. The miracle broth of 23.2% pure botanical extracts (white truffle, lavender, comfrey, thyme, hops, and nettle) instantly disciplined my mane. Usually when I use a new hair product, I need to blow it dry and style it before I notice any difference. With this shampoo and conditioner, I felt the difference in the shower! The only thing I can liken it to is Ritalin for your hair.

At $54 and $75 – stay with me here – these products cost 3 and 4 times what I, a beauty junkie, would typically spend on shampoo and conditioner. But considering how much I generally pay for hair serums, lotions, and potions promising to make my hair behave – I will gladly dig deep into my pockets to fund this addiction.

Philip B White Truffle Shampoo and White Truffle Nourishing Hair Conditioning Creme are on my Spoiled Prettiest: Best of Beauty 2007 list. Philip B products are available for purchase online, and at a beauty supply store near you.
