Get your skin ready for holiday parties with Norvell



Are you a fan of the ABC Dancing with the Stars? Do you ever admire how beautiful and flawless the dancers look – especially the women?

I love it when their skin shimmers and shines on the dance floor. That is what I’d like my skin to do – especially when I am attending holiday parties.

I know it sounds silly – but during the holiday season I enjoy using products that have a subtle glitter to them to make my skin glisten. I also think that the sparkle looks fun. I’m all about having fun.

There are plenty of products on the market that add a touch of glitter to your skin – but most of them make your skin look horrible. I don’t want glitter on my skin! I want my skin to look like I’m covered in a bit of diamond dust (for lack of a better description).

Not too long ago I was introduced to the brand Norvell. Norvell has a line of products that are the very same products that the Dancing with the Stars dancers use.

Now with Dancing with the Stars by Norvell, viewers at home can take a page out of the book of the stars and achieve perfection with their sunless tanning products, shimmering mist and more.

Novell Dancing with the Stars Collection

Designed to provide flawless, foolproof bronzing at home, all of Norvell’s products are vegan, as well as free of parabens, sulfates and gluten.  These five new products are sure to steal the show;

  • DAZZLE shimmering mist – Shake it – that is what you’ll want to do with this super-fine shimmering spray. Whether accentuating the hottest tan in town or enhancing a hairstyle, this adds a little glitz and glam to every day.
  • PERFORMANCE self-tanning airbrush spray – This micro-fine mist sashays across the?skin delivering an all over, flawless tan worthy of a perfect ten. Utilizing advanced spray technology, it’s never been simpler to give sunless tanning a whirl.
  • ENDURANCE color boosting skin perfector – This multipurpose body balm partners immediate skin illumination with a gradual build to a show-stopping bronze! Formulated to choreograph the skincare benefits of a CC cream, Endurance moisturizes, brightens, and firms – all while evening skin tone and extending self tanning color results.
  • PERFECTION self-tanning mousse – This super lightweight, velvety mousse glides as easily over one’s body as a professional dancer moves across the floor. With a simple sweep across the skin – an instant, yet long-lasting bronze color appears. Talk about a quick-step!
  • PRECISION single-use mitt – a blend of bronzers and nourishing, skin firming moisturizers that provides a simple to apply delivery system achieving a streak-free, natural looking, long lasting color. Adding to the applause this product receives, the mitt is lined with a plastic protective shield that won’t allow your hands to be tanned.

I was sent to review their DAZZLE Shimmering Mist. I opted not to review their tanning products because I am very pale skinned and I wouldn’t look right using sunless tanning products.


I love the DAZZLE Shimmering Mist! First and foremost the bottle is big compared to similar products I have used over the years. They normally come in tiny bottles. The amount of product you get with DAZZLE will last for a long time.

DAZZLE is a spray mist which means it gently applies to your skin. What I love about this product is that it’s not glitter. The sparkles it adds to your skin is very subtle. It highlights your skin which is exactly what I am looking for.

DAZZLE is not just for your skin either – you can mist this on your hair to add some shimmering highlights to your hair too.

The Shimmering Mist stays on your skin and doesn’t flake off  to the point where the glitter/sparkles get all over your clothes. They tend to fall off randomly. I have yet to find any on my clothing. It also washes off easily.

If you look you can see some sparkles. I tried to get a good photo but nothing showed the subtle sparkles.

If you look you can see some sparkles. I tried to get a good photo but nothing showed the subtle sparkles.

Norvell offers other products that help prepare your skin for a perfect sunless tan, as well as to keep your skin hydrated and looking it’s best.

In addition to the DAZZLE Shimmering Mist I was also sent to review an exfoliator and cleanser.

I feel that it’s important to exfoliate your skin at least once a week. It helps to remove dead skin cells and smooths rough patches.

The exfoliator from Norvell is gentle. It’s not harsh on your skin. Sometimes exfoliators are too abrasive and are uncomfortable to use. Not this exfoliator. I had no issues with it at all.

I used the exfoliator after I shaved my legs, followed by a lotion. My legs looked good and felt great (soft and smooth).

Novell Products

The PH Balancing Shower Cleaner I also received to review is really nice.

This cleaner is sulfate free and soap free. It doesn’t dry out your skin or leave a sticky residue. I does leave a “barrier” on your skin to lock in moisture, but you do not feel it. There is nothing visible on your skin and nothing you can feel except softness.

I like that it comes in a tube so that you can squeeze out every last drop.

Norvell products are primarily made for people who prefer to do self tanning, however non-tanners, like me, can also enjoy their products.

The Dancing with the Stars Sunless Collection, including the DAZZLE Shimmering Mist, and other Norvell products are found at specialty beauty salons, spas, and tanning salons. You can also purchase the products at NorvellTanning.com. You can also find the brand on social media. All of those links are found at the top left of their website.

Great gift ideas from Natura Culina (plus a 25% discount code!)


Chocolate Scrub

If you read my blog regularly you have probably heard me mention how much I LOVE bath and body products. I do like good make up too, but I would choose a sugar scrub over a mascara any day.

I love bath and body products. I think I have an addiction. LOL!

Let’s face it – showers and baths can be boring. It’s nice to jazz things up a bit with something the smells great or makes your skin look and/or feel fabulous.

I have reviewed products from a brand called Natura Culina in the past. I have tried out their luscious Chocolate Sugar Body Scrub and Lavender Shea Butter. Both products I absolutely loved. You can read my review here – Indulge Yourself in Fat Free, Sugar Free, Calorie Free Fabulous Chocolate. It’s pictured above.

Natura Culina full believes that “green is clean.” The company believes in the healing power of plants and trusts that you can achieve more with less. That is why their products are made with minimal ingredients that are all natural and organic. They want consumers to know exactly what they are putting on their body.

You can read their mission statement as well as an interview with the company’s owner on the brand’s “About” page.

I totally agree that the products we put on our body – as well as in our body – should be as close to natural as possible. Decades ago products were not made with dozens of hard to pronounce, and hard to understand, ingredients. Even an ordinary bar of soap found on store shelves is made with ingredients I have no clue what they are.

Natura Culina is very transparent about the ingredients used in their products – so much so that they are listed on their website for each and every product that they sell.

Natura Culina sent me some more products to try out.

Perk Me Up Soap

Perk Me Up Coffee Soap

This soap really intrigued me. It’s made with Olive Oil, Coconut Oil*, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter*, Freshly Roasted & Caffeinated Coffee, Sodium Hydroxide, Zinc Oxide, Lavender, Vanilla, Mint Essential Oils. *Certified Organic.

Freshly roasted coffee? As a coffee lover, I love knowing that the soap is made with real coffee.

Caffeine, when applied topically, is actually good for your skin. I have heard of this before. It’s not “new news,” but not too many people are aware of the benefits of caffeine for your skin. I’ve read that it can reduce cellulite, firm and tightens skin, but did you also know that caffeine can help even skin tone, repair UV damage and help reduce redness (caffeine has free radicals and anti-inflammatory properties).

Natura Culina has two different Perk Me Up Coffee Soaps available – exfoliating and smooth. The exfoliating soap is made with real coffee grounds. The smooth does not have the grounds in it.

I have the exfoliate soap. This time of year my skin gets incredibly dry. The exfoliate helps to remove dead skin cells and leave my skin looking and feeling soft and smooth.

Be careful – exfoliates can be harsh on your skin if you scrub too hard. You need to use this soap gently. If you are too rough the soap becomes abrasive.

I don’t feel it as much on my body and arms, but when I use this soap on my legs they feel a bit tingly – but in a good way. It might be the caffeine. I’m not sure. I would think I would feel it all over if that was the case.

I love this soap. I love how it makes my skin feel and the scent is amazing. It’s not a true coffee scent. The soap is made with mint, vanilla and lavender, so all those scents favor into the overall scent of the soap. There is a touch of a coffee scent to it as well. It’s very refreshing. I use this soap 2-3 times per week (like every other day).

Wash and Lotion

When I am not using the Perk Me Up Soap I am using Natura Culina’s Lavender Body Wash.

If you love the scent of lavender you will LOVE this body wash.

Lavender is known to have a relaxing quality about it. That is why people use lavender products before bedtime. However lavender can be enjoyed all day long because it does relax you. Let’s face it, on a hectic weekday morning some of us need a little peace. Take for example my home – we have four people trying to get ready at the same time with one bathroom. Not to mention we have a tiny kitchen which is crowded enough with two people in it let alone four people.

Knowing how crazy it’s going to be the moment I step out of the shower, having that 5-10 minutes of calm is a nice way to start my day.

The Lavender Body Wash washes well and rinses of completely. I do not feel any sticky or slimy residue. It leaves your skin feeling fresh, clean and delightful.

The Lavender Body Wash does not contain any SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate). This ingredient is very toxic and should be avoid. Google it if you want to learn more.

Many bath products on the market contain this chemical ingredient. Natura Culina’s body wash is Sulfates free.

A wonderful addition to the Lavender Body Wash (and even the Perk Me Up Soap) is to follow up with Natura Culina’s Morning Lavender Body Lotion.

I think one big mistake many people do – including men – it not applying lotion as soon as they get out of the shower. When your body is warm and moist it’s the best time to apply lotion because it will absorb into your skin better. I tell my husband, daughter and son all the time to apply lotion as soon as they get out of the shower – especially this time of year when skin starts to get dry. I even go so far as to leave the bottle of lotion on the sink for them to see.


Lotion is important. You need to give your skin the extra moisture it needs.

Natura Culina’s Morning Lavender Body Lotion not only smells wonderful, it’s also quick to absorb into your skin and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. I would even go as far as to say the lotion makes my skin feel a little tingly when I apply it. I think that has to do with the lavender.

Other products from Natura Culina worth checking out include;

Honey C Lip Balm – My daughter is on medication that dries her skin out severely. She has tried plenty of lip balm/conditioners on the market with no luck. So far this lip balm has been helping her lips from getting so dried out that the split and bleed. This lip balm is thick and tends to stay on the lips longer. So far my daughter tells me she is pleased with this product.

Nourishing Bath Salts – Let me tell you, after a busy or stressful day, soaking in a tub with bath salts is like heaven on Earth.

Natura Culina sent me a package of bath salts named “Delight” (Sweet Vanilla with soothing Lavender). Oh my goodness! You have to smell this blend. I was reluctant to try the product because I didn’t want the scent to go away.

Natura Culina Products

There are several blends available, including unscented.

The bag is large enough that you can divide it up into more than one bath if you wanted to. You only need 2-3 handfuls. One bag will last for several baths.

The salts help to scent your bath and the scent floats in the air around your tub. The combination of warm water, heavenly scent and the benefits of the sea salt turns your bath into a spa experience.

All of these products are found on the Nutura Culina website, NaturaCulina.com. You can also check out the brand on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

With the holiday season upon us these products (and others found at Nutura Culina) would make wonderful holiday gifts. You could put some together to create a gift basket, or toss a few products into a stocking (stocking stuffers).

Natura Culina has been kind enough to set up a 25% off discount code for She Scribes readers. The code expires on December 1, 2015 so please don’t wait to use it. The code is shescribes25. Use it upon check out.

Get ready for your “uncover mission” with John Frieda



Have you seen the hilarious Melissa McCarthy film, Spy, yet? It’s available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download.

In case you missed it you can read my review here – Spy Movie Review. Please note that the giveaway is over.

In the film, Melissa McCarthy’s character, Susan Cooper, undergoes several looks to protect her identity. Some of the looks are fun (like the old lady) and others make her look like she can kick some serious butt.

Here are some of her looks from the film.


Susan Cooper

Susan Cooper and Fine

Susan Cooper and Spy

Imagine if you had the opportunity to go undercover. How would you like to look? Would you want to look sweet and innocent, look like a tourist, or look like you are a “Bond Girl” from the James Bond films?

I received a box of hair color from John Frieda to change my look – just like McCarthy’s Susan Cooper character did in the Spy film.

I have dirty blonde hair. I used to have platinum blonde hair when I was younger. Then it turned a yellowish blonde, then dirty blonde. With the gray, silver and white hair on my head, mixed with the blonde, my hair just looks dull and washed out.





I think I should have been born a red head because I love auburn hair.

I was sent to review a box of John Fried hair coloring in Radiant Red/Deep Cherry Brown.

Hair Color

My hair is thick and course and doesn’t absorb hair coloring the way it should. For that reason it’s hard to judge what my hair color will be when I used hair coloring. Sometimes it’s true to the box color, other times it lighter than the color on the box.

I once colored my hair a dark, deep brown color. It looked great but about a month later my roots stood out so much that I had to dye my hair a lighter color.


This is what my hair looked like prior to using the John Frieda hair coloring (below). Please disregard my wrinkles, blotches and dull appearance. I had no make up on.


Pre-Hair Coloring

The hair coloring was pretty standard as far as the application was concerned. I applied it as directed, left it on for the specific amount of time then rinsed it out and applied the post-coloring conditioner.

I get Eczema on my scalp from time to time, so I have to be careful not to use harsh hair coloring or it triggers the Eczema. I’ve never used John Frieda before. Thankfully it wasn’t harsh. It did not bother my Eczema.

Hair coloring in my hair.

Hair coloring in my hair.

I can’t believe I am showing pictures of myself with no make up. I must be crazy! LOL!

After I finished coloring my hair this was the end result. It wasn’t as dark as I had hoped it would be, but its still a very nice color. In fact the photos don’t do it justice. I should have taken some out in the sunlight. The color looks better in the sun.


Even though it’s not as dark as I’d like it to be, it’s still a good color.

I may not be a spy like Melissa McCarthy’s character in the film Spy, but I can still enjoy changing up my appearance from time to time with some great hair coloring, make up and a change in my wardrobe.

Look for Spy where ever movies are sold.

Click n Curl – Dry, style and set all in one step


Me back in 86' - I've always had a lot of hair.

Me back in 86′ – I’ve always had a lot of hair.

Back when I was a teen and young woman I would literally spend hours doing my hair. I’d wash it, dry it and curl it. Having long, thick hair made it take longer then I wanted it to. But it was the price I had to pay to look my best.

Fast forward decades later. As a busy mom, wife, blogger and working part time outside of the home, I simply don’t have the time to dry, curl and style my hair. My hair is almost always in a ponytail. I would love to style my hair, but it’s just too time consuming.

I was recently introduced to a nifty new product called Click n Curl. Click n Curl allows you to dry, curl and set your hair in one step. The result is hair full of body, volume and loose flowing curls… well for most people. My hair is super thick and course so “flowing” is not something my hair does. LOL.

Click n Curl takes care of multiple hair styling products with just the one product.

new product photo med

Click n Curl is a set of brush “barrels” and a single brush handle.

To use simple place one of the brush barrels onto the handle. Use the brush to the way you normally would (if you blow dry your hair with a brush) and instead of removing it from your hair, curl it into the position you want it to be in and then press the release button on the side of the brush handle to release the barrel. The barrel should stay in your hair resembling a large hair curler. You are then free to use another barrel in the same manner.

Once you have used all the barrels in your hair you can apply a little more heat to set them, then let them cool before you carefully unroll them from your hair.

It is easy enough to do, but it does take practice. It took me several tries before I got it right.

The barrels also don’t always stay in my hair. I think it’s because my hair is so thick and heavy. I have found that the less hair I use on the barrels the better the hold.

Here is me practicing with the Click n Curl.

Click n Curl

Not a great look for me – ha ha.

Click n Curl was created by Kim Nimsgern.

“I came up with the idea of Click-n-Curl after fussing with a round brush and rollers, all while trying to get my kids ready for school in the morning,” says Kim Nimsgern. “I realized there had to be a better way, so I worked on combining the two tools and realized it produced great body and volume.”

Here is how Click n Curl really works.

Click n Curl’s detachable handle turns brush heads into rollers allowing each section of hair to cool and set achieving results superior to a standard round brush. Heat is what alters the molecule bonds in your hair and permits a temporarily change in shape (straight to curled), but it’s the cooling of the hair that allows the new shape (the curl) to be retained. The process of going from hot to cool is what “sets” and creates a curl. After drying a section of hair with your blow dryer, simply detach the Click n Curl brush barrel and allow your hair to cool. Without delay, use the handle to click on the next brush barrel and move on to the next section of hair. The longer it cools the better results.

I use the same kind of brush to blow dry my hair, so it’s not much different using the Click n Curl. What makes Click n Curl better is that I can release the barrel and it stays in my hair long enough to set the curl instead of me having to hold it in place with my regular brush.


The results for me are more volume and more waves. It doesn’t actually curl my hair. In all fairness even hair curlers (the heated ones you plug in) don’t give me much more of a curl either. I think it has a lot to do with my hair.

Here are some additional details about Click n Curl.

  • Includes six brush barrels and one universal handle.
  • Each Add On set (available in three sizes) includes four brush barrels.
  • Both Full and Add On sets are available in three barrel dimensions (1.5, 2 and 2.75 inches)
  • The brush barrels are super light and do not weigh down hair.
  • The ceramic coating minimizes frizz, is easier on the hair shaft, heats fast and evening and cools just as fast.
  • The barrel is vented for quicker drying time.
  • The brush heads have a flat top making them free standing which allows for used to attach each barrel with one hand (which is important because the other hand is holding the hair dryer).
  • The nylon bristles are stiff enough to create tension when styling but soft enough to avoid tangles and long enough to hold the roller in place without clips.
  • The handle is light weight, shaped for comfort, textured for a no-slip grip and has an easy release button for detaching the brush head.
  • Click n Curl is designed to be used in conjunction with a hair dryer (not included)
  • Retail Price: $49.99

This could make a great gift for a teenager or someone who loves to style their hair.

With all the holiday parties coming up this could be an easy way for you to do up your hair.

Look your best this holiday season (and beyond!) with products from Younique


Younique Logo

When it comes to my daily make up routine I tend to stick with the bare minimum. I only work a few hours outside of the home, and with young children. They like me for who I am – not for how I look.

When I’m at home I don’t wear make up. In fact, the moment I walk in the door I usually make a “bee line” straight to the bathroom to wash my face.

Just because on a day to day basis I don’t wear a lot of make up doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy getting all done up – especially for a “Date Night” with my husband, dinner with friends or a night out. When it comes to those occasions I LOVE to wear lip stick, eye shadow and make up I might not often wear.

One make up brand has intrigued me for several months called Younique. I know a few people who use their products and rave about them. I have also seen posts about the products on Instagram. Many people post photos of their eyes after using Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+.

I was fortunate to receive some products to review from  Younique, including the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+.

Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ is much more than a typical mascara. It’s a 2-part system that transforms your lashes into amazingly long and lush lashes that “pop.” You can boost your lashes by a whopping 400%!

Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

I was not blessed with long lashes. In fact, you can barely see my lashes – especially my bottom ones. My husband, my teen daughter and teen son all have beautiful eye lashes – lashes that most women only dream of having (myself included). It’s not fair that men get long lashes.

I have tried to wear fake eyelashes, but I find them incredibly uncomfortable and I can never glue them on correctly. They also end up irritating my eyes.

I have tried many different mascaras over the years. Some do a good job at adding length and volume, but sometimes you want something MORE. That is where Younique’s Moodstuck 3D Fiber Lashes+ comes in.

Using this mascara is super easy. It goes with a tube of gel with a wand as well as a tube of fibers – also with a wand.

To apply put an even layer of gel on your lashes. Quickly apply the fibers with the other want (don’t mix wands!), then re-apply the gel on top to set the fibers. You can also repeat these steps to achieve your desired look.

Younique Brushes

I was a bit hesitant at first. I thought the fiber pieces would get all over the place – especially in my eye. I was pleasantly surprised that the fibers stayed on my lashes and didn’t fall off. Maybe one or two did hear or there, but that’s nothing.

Even with just one layer of fibers made my lashes incredibly long. It looked like I was wearing fake lashes – but I wasn’t.

I LOVE how my eyes look when I use this mascara. It’s so easy to apply and it washes off with no problem. Now I see why people rave about Moodstuck on social media. This mascara, to quote teens, is “DA BOMB!” Once you try Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ you’ll never go back to regular mascara or fake lashes again.

Another product I was sent to review is the Younique Stiff Upper Lip Stain. I received the colors Shy, Savvy and Sultry to review. Savvy and Sultry are a little too dark for my complexion (I’m very pale), but Shy works well.

I don’t normally wear lip color, with the exception of lip gloss. I find that lipsticks dry out my lips and fade quickly. I don’t have time to reapply and I don’t like how my lips feel when I wear lipstick either.

Younique Lip Stain

What I love about the Stiff Upper Lip Stains is that they literally “stain” you lip. Don’t worry… it does eventually fade away, but not for a good amount of time. Unlike lipsticks you won’t need to re-apply this lip stain all day long.

I like that my lips don’t feel dry or sticky. In fact, I don’t even realize I’m wearing color. It’s liquidy when you first apply it (like a lip gloss) but eventually it absorbs into your skin (for lack of a better description) so your lips don’t feel wet – but the color still remains. Genius!

In addition to the two products I am thrilled to have in my makeup bag, I also received Younique’s Moodstruck Precision Eye Liners in the colors Perfect, Passionate and Prim.

I tend to stick with black eyeliner. I don’t know why. When I was younger I would use a variety of colors. I don’t know why I ever stopped.

As far as eyeliners go these eyeliners are great. They go on smoothly, blend very well and wash off completely. For me, that is important.

Eye liner available in a great variety of colors.

Eye liner available in a great variety of colors.

I like the colors because they are not outlandish or make you look like a clown. They simply add a subtle touch of color to your eyes.

Passionate is a light-to-medium purple color, Perfect is a dark charcoal gray color (my daughter says it’s black – it’s not black) and Prim is a goldish-copper (for lack of a better description). I mostly use the Passionate or Perfect. Personally I think Prim is better suited for holiday parties or a night out on the town.

When you have amazing mascara (Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+) and great precision eyeliner (Moonstruck Precision Eyeliner), you need some wonderful eye shadow too.

Younique Addiction Eye Shadow Palette Two

Younique Addiction Eye Shadow Palette Two


I received two pallets of Moodstruck Addiction Eye Shadow from Younique in a great assortment of colors. I received Palette One and Palette Two.

Palette One has a range from light (peachy/gold) to a dark (milk chocolate-like) brown. Palette Two has light grey colors to a dark, almost black-like color.

I’ve been using the lighter colors from Palette One mostly. Because I wear glasses I don’t really wear much eye shadow except to accent my eyes a bit. Too much eye shadow doesn’t look good on me with glasses. It makes my eyes look over done. I prefer to keep it simple/subtle.

“Brassy” and “Swanky” from Palette One are my favorite colors. They have a it of sparkle to them without looking tacky.

Lastly I received fro Younique something called Refreshed Rose Water. It comes in a cute little spray bottle. This spray acts as a toner on your skin. It adds hydration.

Younique Refreshed Rose Water

To use simply spray it on your clean face BEFORE you put on any makeup. Then apply your make up as you normally would. You can spritz some on after your makeup is apply to “set” your makeup if you’d like (I don’t do that – I just spray it on before I apply my makeup).

It does have a rose scent to it too which is really nice.

I like how this feels on my skin, especially after I wash my face or when I come out of the shower. My face wash sometimes makes my skin feel dry and tight. Once I spray on some of the rose water my face feels really refreshed. I liken it to splashing cold water on your face. It’s refreshing and a nice pick-me-up.

I am thrilled that I was finally able to experience Younique products. I am a new fan and future customer of the brand – most especially for the Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+.

5 Bad Shower Habits That Cause Hair Damage


Washing hair

Did you know, strong, healthy hair begins in the shower? According to successful salon owner and founder of RI CI, Ricky Pennisi breaks through the curtain to reveal five surprising ways on how you could be causing your own hair damage.

Shampoo – according to Ricky, this is the most important part of the hair process. Shampoo is designed to remove dirt, but not using a correct one can actually strip your hair’s moisture. Always look for water-based shampoos and ones that are sulfate free. Also, think about your natural hair. If you have naturally wavy or curly hair, use a shampoo designed for your hair type like RI CI Drench. It will also nourish your hair and make your curls more manageable to style.

Conditioner – the worst thing you can do is place conditioner above your crown line. This will lead to grease and unnecessary oil production. Instead, focus on your roots first. This is the area that requires the most moisture and attention.

Brush – when your hair is wet it more susceptible to damage. If you forgot to brush before you stepped into the shower, use a big tooth comb and comb out the nuts while you have conditioner in your hair starting at the tip and working your way up to your crown. This step will keep the integrity of your hair intact.

Weekly Treatment – Just like your skin, your hair requires a weekly treatment to help combat the daily damage our hair takes from heat products (i.e. strainer), extensions, excessive brushing and even free radicals. Every visit to the salon, talk to your stylist about the different treatment options. There are also great at-home treatments and hair masks. Use a hair mask/oil treatment one a week.

Towel Burrito – just don’t do it. Wrapping your hair tightly with a towel causes the most stress and damage to your hair. Instead, gently squeeze out excess moisture on a dry towel – and pat, don’t rub (rubbing can cause knots).
