The warm sun and humidity are out to create a mess of our beautiful tresses again! Our hair becomes dry, brittle and the frizz factor is in full effect with the heat. Luckily, there is help to tame those hair baddies that summer brings our way.
To get a controlled style that enhances shine, tames unwanted frizz, and won’t weigh down voluminous hair, you can use a setting product. These kinds of products can be applied to hair while it is still damp or after you style to complete the look.
They can range from creams to oils and now even come in dry mists! Here are 3 progressive product suggestions to rock your hair care world!
Ampoules are underused skincare treatments in the industry. A lot of us have used them during a facial, but then forget about the lasting effects they can bring by using them at home. They can target our concerns, provide hydration, promote collagen, and help to restore our skin. Ampoules are stable, hygienic, and sealed until you are ready to use them.
Ampoules, or sometimes called fluids, can be beneficial for all skin types and concerns. They give our skin the necessary boost that it needs after traveling, post skin care procedure, during dry winters, or after a long hot summer. TheBabor skin care line carries fluids that help to boost collagen, calm and hydrate your skin, or provide your skin with essential vitamins and nutrients it needs to stay healthy. You can choose from their collagen booster, distressing fluid, or the multi active vitamin fluid.
Ampoules are also great for whitening teeth! Try GoSmile products and their whitening system ampoules. You can see a noticeable difference in the brightness of your teeth in a short amount of time with no trays or strips needed.
Ampoules are also used for hair to help restore, protect and keep healthy. If you hair needs a little attention and repair, try a hydrating oil treatment by Phytoto smooth out split ends and provide damage control.
The next time your beauty regimen needs a boost, reach for an ampoule to get you the results you are looking for!

Do you feel like you just left the salon, yet your color is fading fast? In this economy we’re all looking for ways to cut corners and get the most for our dollar. Here are a few tips to preserve and prolong your color and get the most out of each salon visit.
1. Frederic Fekkai Advanced Salon Technician Anti-Fade Top Coat is just what the hair stylist ordered! A new intensive formula has an anti-fade complex that contains a natural UV shield, Galanga Root. Your color is more vibrant, intensified and longer lasting. The quick dry top coat seals hair cuticles, prevents frizz, and guards against daily damage. Here’s a little bit more on the Frederic Fekkai Salon Technician color line:
2. Dry shampoo is a life saver! One of the best and easiest ways to preserve your vibrant color is to avoid over-washing your hair. If you wash your hair daily then you are stripping your color at a much faster rate while depleting your hair of the natural oils that are essential to the health of your hair and scalp. Alternate washing your hair with a dry shampoo to greatly extend the life of your dye job. We love Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk.
Spring is here! That means that spring cleaning is around the corner but that doesn’t mean cleaning just the house. Our beauty tool boxes can be organized and cleaned out to make room for some newly improved tools and new and exciting additions. Toss those clunky old hair tools and make room for CHI Air!
The CHI Air hair tools use exceptionally high amounts of far infrared and negative ions which are produced by the tourmaline components. This technology helps to seal in the moisture your hair needs to stay static free and frizz free, while imparting your hair with healthy shine! We all deserve that shiny, bouncy, red carpet hair…don’t you think?

Years ago when ladies hair would begin to show signs of gray it meant running to the beauty parlor for a discrete coloring service. And years ago when gentlemen began sporting gray it was usually accompanied by balding and bad combovers. (Not the image most of us want to be remembered by!)
Those days are definitely gone! Bold male actors such as Sean Connery, Richard Gere, Pierce Brosnan and George Clooney set the trend early on by making that salt and pepper gray something dashing and debonair. More recently a newer era of actors beginning to sport the look include Eric Dane, Ben Affleck, Matt LeBlanc and even Brad Pitt!
Actresses Jamie Lee Curtis, Helen Mirren, Blythe Danner, celebrity chef Paula Dean and even singer Pink have all set the new standard for ladies. Silver is sassy and sexy instead of old and tired!
While some may have to make a visit to the hairstylist to get those seductive silver tones, others may have that touch of gray naturally. But how do you ensure your gray is well cared for and nice and silvery, instead of a dull yellowy gray?
We recommend the following hair care products to help highlight your white, silver or gray hair and provide shine and brilliance.
With the 83rd Academy Awards airing soon, we will see how fabulous the actors and actresses look as they walk down that glamorous red carpet. Most of them will have flawless, radiant skin that shows no signs of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles or sagging skin. Not to mention luscious hair to die for!
Many of you have a special event coming up soon (spring weddings are right around the corner) and need to look fabulously youthful and radiant. How can you achieve all of this without going in for expensive chemical peels, microdermabrasion, injections or surgery?
Here are my “TOP PICKS” for products that will help you achieve a more youthful radiant appearance for your upcoming special event:
Yonka Lotion PS Toner- Helps to normalize PH Levels in your skin with botanical oil extracts that help to soothe and bind moisture to your skin.
Goldfaden Instant Face Lift- Apply 2-3 drops of this serum to your face to help tighten, smooth and lift skin for up to eight hours. It helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and has cumulative results, too.
Pevonia Timeless Cream- This moisturizer uses caviar extract, pearl, alpha lipoic acid, and retinol to repair and tighten the skin, relax and smooth wrinkles while providing superior hydration!
The best news of all is the above skin care products meet our natural beauty standards with a high concentration of quality natural botanicals while keeping harsh chemicals to a minimum!
I also recommend the following products to maximize your hair volume and shine:
Sound like I’m describing the condition of your hair? Well, let’s fix that! Dry hair is a common concern for many people, but thankfully it’s totally treatable.
First you’re going to need a good shampoo and conditioner. I recommend the Alterna Hemp with Organics Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. This is my go-to duo for over processed damaged hair. These products are the perfect combination of protein and moisture to strengthen the hair and protect it from any future damage.
Next you’re going to change your mind set of washing your hair everyday or even every other day. I’m talking washing your hair at the most 2 times per week. That’s right, you heard me- a max of twice a week, but don’t panic- this is where dry shampoo comes into play. A dry shampoo is going to become your new best friend. My personal favorite is Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk. Those with thinner textured hair and are looking for volume will want to go with Oscar Blandi Pronto Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray. Use your dry shampoo when needed to absorb any excess oil and product build up. It will also provide your damaged locks with the proper nourishment it’s dying for.
Also you will want to find a good mask for your hair, which you’ll need to use once a week. There are a lot of good ones out there so this won’t be hard; so far my favorite has been the Alterna TEN Hair Masque.
Try to avoid any hair coloring or chemical processing for 4-8 weeks to fully let your locks rest and restore to their natural beauty.
