80s+soap+5 The 80s Called...They Want Their Soap Back

In case you hadn’t heard, the 80’s are back. First, the decade of excess made its way into our closets. Then it trickled down into our makeup bags. Now, it’s showing up in our showers!

Check out these soaps I found on Etsy. Totally tubular, right? I can imagine my 10 year old self sudsing up with these soaps, before slipping into my favorite EJ Gitano outfit and LA Gear sneakers.

Carol’s Daughter Best Tressed Hair Set: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

carols+daughter+best+tressed+gift+set Carols Daughter Best Tressed Hair Set: Holiday Beauty Gift GuideThis holiday beauty gift pick is for that follicularly challenged chick in your life. We all have that relative or friend whose hair is so dry, damaged or downright ratnesty that we’re compelled to help. So this holiday season, instead of hooking her up with a cute hat, buy her the Best Tressed Hair Set from Carol’s Daughter.

Like the right pair of shoes, a hairdo can make or break your outfit. Starting off with gently-cleansing Rosemary Mint Shampoo with Sea Moss for dry hair is a wise choice. Layer in moisture with Black Vanilla Leave-in Conditioner. Hair Milk, a light solution for brittle hair, adds luster with the help of lemongrass and ylang-ylang. The essential oils of sage and rosemary in Lisa’s Hair Elixir help combat dry hair and scalp while peppermint gives a refreshing tingle. Mimosa Hair Honey, an herbal-infused pomade, improves manageability and tames fly-aways so that the only thing catching anyone’s eye is your gorgeous hair!

I just tried Carol’s Daughter hair products tonight, for the first time. And let me tell you…they are just as awesome as everything you’ve heard. I’m extremely embarrassed to be so tardy for the Carol’s Daughter hair party; so I’m not just jumping on the bandwagon – I’m getting behind the wheel, y’all. After using the products in the Best Tressed Hair Set, my mane (which is usually the black hole of moisture and shine) is soft, shiny, wonderfully fragranced and feels so darn healthy that I’m in a state of shock.

What’s even more amazing is the fact that these products are all natural – free of the harsh chemicals that jacked up your hair in the first place. “I wanted lots of moisture and no synthetic preservatives,” says creator Lisa Price. “If I couldn’t pronounce the ingredient, it wasn’t going into the pot.”

The Best Tressed Hair Set is the gift that keeps giving. Your homegirl, and her haphazard hair, will thank you.
