13 Best Deep Conditioners

Let's be honest, ladies -- every single time we flip it mid-conversation, shyly tuck it behind our ears or peek through it when it falls before our faces like a curtain, we know exactly what we're doing: making the stone cold heart of every onlooker melt like butter on the sidewalk in the middle of July. Whether you're rocking a face-framing pixie or waist-length layers, gorgeous, healthy hair is a gal's greatest accessory.

I have a confession to make: I occasionally skip washing my face for days at a time. As someone who writes about beauty for a living, I definitely know better.

I Wore Static Nails for a Week and Didn't Hate It

If you're like me, you love a good manicure. But, if you're also like me, you don't always have the time or the money to make an appointment at your favorite salon. Such a bummer.
