    Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Shampoo

    What Is This Supposed To Do Again?

    I have long wavy/curly, but easily straightened dark hair...it makes a great bed head look, but no, this shampoo did nothing to help that tousled look. It smells good, yes...it also dried my hair out a little bit. I didn't use it with the conditioner but I dont think that's why my hair didn't "tousle". I didn't see any real difference in my hair besides the dryness and great smell so this doesn't really work for me. There's something about it that feels unhealthy for your hair so I just stopped using it.

  • TRESemme Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo

    TRESemme Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo

    Ineffective...Did My Hair Get Greasier?

    There is nothing effective about this dry shampoo at all..and it seems to make my hair look much flatter much worse after use. If you think you are having a bad hair day, your hair looks flat or you need refreshing then this will only your hair woes worse and unfixable without washing your hair (I think that's what you are trying to avoid doing when using this). And on top of making your problem worse, you are left trying to get this extra lemony (almost too tart) powder out of your hair...it's very strong. I have absolutely nothing good to say about this item. Definitely do not use on dark hair. More decent dry shampoos are : Oscar Blandi (all of them) but I love the invisible power or Ojon Rub Out ...I haven't really found a drugstore dry shampoo that works well yet.

  • Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion

    Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion

    Eh - Nothing to Write Home About

    I used to use this lotion...and at the end of the day after going through a full tube I have to say that i never really saw any type of improvement or extra hydration with this. It was just the kind of lotion that you feel like you are rubbing on your face for the sake of routine or using a moisturizing but nothing is exceptionally amazing about this lotion. So, I would say pass on it..and find a better moisturizer. It's definitely not thick or heavy...but it's a little too light for me.

    St. Ives Soothing Oatmeal Shea

    Thicker, Non Greasy Body Lotion

    If you prefer a body lotion which is closer to a body butter, without being quite at heavy then is the answer. It provides a comforting smell which moisturizes unbelievably well and lasts all day without any greasy feeling. This is also great for smoothing and healing somewhat sensitive or irritated skin. Example, if you have a great sweater that can be itchy sometimes, then this is the lotion to wear it. Great item at a very affordable price. Love it.

  • Redken Shine Balance Glass 01 Smoothing Serum

    If you are going to use a serum, then I'm thinking that you are looking for something with a little more weight to it...so this isn't your serum. This is a VERY lightweight serum, that does add a great amount of shine....but kind of doesn't last and just doesn't have the right consistency. If it's the lightness that you like, then use a shine spray (much less messy) like TIGI Bed Head's Headrush...but if it's oil part that you like then use MoroccanOil. Now if you are using this because you think it protects your hair in some way while adding shine, then just go for John Frieda Frizz-ease which comes in a light version also. This just isn't worth the price or effort when there are better items out there that get the job done.

  • John Frieda Luxurious Volume Thickening Hair Mousse

    Definitely creates volume, shine and tames hair. This mousse has provided the closest at home salon results from any product I've ever tried (and I've been through enough). Great product for creating that wavy, tousled but blown out look. I have very long hair which is naturally curly and this tames my hair and always makes it look exceptionally sexy. Use this for a bed head blow out and you will get strong lasting power. This product leaves your hair soft and shiny - there is absolutely 0 stiffness from this product yet there is a sort of hold. Also, you cant really overdo this product. You dont NEED a lot, but if you accidentally put too much in your hair it is VERY forgiving...even near the roots. That's one of my favorite things about this mousse. Oh and as an added bonus it smells absolutely fantastic...even if Im in a bar or club, guys always notice how great and clean this smells. Definitely protects your hair from smelly places. I can't think of any complaints about this product.

  • Rusk Design Series Blofoam

    Rusk Design Series Blofoam

    Pioneer, but Outdated

    I remember when this item came out and it was amazingly effective, even though the volume didn't last very long. I loved this and used it religiously...but then technology changed and more effective and long-lasting items were created. I think there are other much more long lasting and equally as good smelling "foams" out there and this one is a distant pleasant memory. It's worth a try, but I wouldn't recommend it as one of the top volumizing mousses.

  • Rusk Str8 Anti Frizz/Anti Curl Lotion

    Rusk Str8 Anti Frizz/Anti Curl Lotion

    If You Like VERY Sleek & Shiny

    This product is great if you like that really slick, straight look...but if you want any amount of body then don't use it. It totally flattens the hair and makes it look kind of thin...but shiny. I always need body so this isn't for me but someone doing the sleek, shiny straight hair look this is perfect.

  • Kiehl's Creme with Silk Groom

    Kiehl's Creme with Silk Groom

    Best FlyAway Smoothing Cream

    I never found any reason to use "finishing sprays" or grooming creams...until my stylist recommended this one. This is the only cream that smooths my flyaways (I have these annoying baby hairs on my temples that are so stubborn and turn into horns!) and smooths the tips of my hair after a particularly brutal blow out. Also, you have to use less than a dime sized amount for really great results...and I have very long hair. My only tip is to be careful with using too much of this because then your hair can look dirty or it can make it sticky almost like a pomade or wax. It's very, very thick so it's hard to even get out of bottle. Hard to find a good cream and though this one is a little pricey, its worth it and lasts forever. Not perfect, but very good.

  • The Body Shop Raspberry Born Lippy Balm

    I'll start by saying that I love carmex and no other lip balm will protect and moisturize like it, but sometimes it's just too much. And thats where this balm comes in...it's lighter and tastes amazing. It may not last so long, but it's good for when you just want a balm...like in summer months.
