  • TIGI Bed Head After-PartySmoothing Cream

    I've been a fan of this stuff for years and it is a staple in my morning routine. Light weight, not super greasy, absorbs in and gives a natural look, and a tube lasts a really long time. I have hair to my mid back and one tube lasts me well over 4 months using 1-2 pumps a day.

  • Frizz-Ease Smooth Start Hydrating Conditioner

    LOVE this stuff! I used to have a big problem with breakage and shedding, probably because of the touture I had to put my hair through to get it presentable and then the innevitable afternoon top knot my hair spent 16 hours a day in. This stuff, along with the shampoo, has saved me hours a week in my morning routine. It is not greasy or heavy, left my hair soft, and I can actually go 2-3 days without washing now. Breakage and shedding is significantly less. Now, I'm not saying that this product stops shedding or breakage (I haven't seen it promoted for those reasons), I am saying that it has allowed me to lessen the abuse of blow outs, flat irons, daily washings, and the everyday top knot which contributed to my breakage and shedding.

  • Frizz-Ease Smooth Start Hydrating Shampoo

    I had given up on my long hair being smooth and frizz free, but I grabbed this and the Jhn Frieda Smooth Start Hydrating Conditioner as a last ditch effort and it has saved me hours a week in de-frizzing my hair! I used to have to use 2-3 products plus blow my hair out, use a flat iron, and pray for low humidity to have somewhat decent hair. Now all I have to do is finger comb my hair while blowing dry and it is almost stick straight with about 1% of the frizz that I used to have. I use a dot of my fave smoothing creme (TIGI After Party) and I'm out the door. I have tried the Repairing version of this shampoo and conditioner and was not impressed, it left my hair feeling squeeky clean and really hard to get my fingers through when wet. This leaves my hair super soft, not at all greasy or weighed down, and smells good.

  • Topstyler Ceramic Heated Styling Shells

    Topstyler Ceramic Heated Styling Shells

    Great concept, but not for me

    While I REALLY wanted this product to work and after countless tries, I give up. My hair is quite long (to just below my mid back) and very fine but very thick so I normally have to spend 30-40 minutes curling my hair with a curling iron. I have yet to find rollers that get curl more than 1/3 up from the ends, so this looked like it might work! I tried well over 10 times and the curl was great for about 30 seconds then just fell flat. I tried every tried and true hair product in my arsenal, and nothing made the curl last more than a couple miutes. While it did give me very full hair with lots of body, it wasn't what I was going for. The infomercials and videos sponsored by the manufacturer show long perfect curls and I just haven't seen the same result at home so these are going back at this price. As a side note, I did 1 inch sections doing both the 1 and 2 finger wrap in the normal directions I curl my hair, making sure that I did not twist my hair as I was wrapping it (I made sure it was flat against my fingers), using both the large and small shells, and left them in for 20-30 minutes. Nothing changed the final outcome of the curl falling out almost immediately.

  • L'Oreal Paris Everstrong Hydrate Shampoo

    I have very dry, long hair and have been searching for something that will help but not cost a fortune. This shampoo is used with L'Oreal Everstrong Reconstruct Conditioner and together they smell fantastic and work well, but it is still not enough. The shampoo does make my hair feel softer in the shower while my hair is in the water but then the softness fades quickly (still better than most I have tried). I probably will keep searching for something more hydrating but it's not bad for the price.
