I do a lot to my hair. I blow dry it, straighten it,  curl it, color it, hair spray it and probably a lot of other things that can cause quite some damage to the delicate hair strands.  As most girls that do similar stuff to their hair in their everyday routine have the question: How can I bring back that healthy strong hair that I had before doing all the heat damage etc?
     Uriélle has a product meant just for that purpose. Their restorative and conditioning styling treatment is made for ALL different hair types  and doesn't contain parabens, sulfates, propylene, glycol, DEA, TEA, or synthetic color and dyes.

Restorative & Conditioning Styling Treatment For All Hair Types
Picture
Pump dispenser helps control how much comes out at once
Uriélle Revitál –Treatment promotes healing and has the ability to restore over-processed hair that has been damaged by chemical procedures, excessive heat styling, free radicals, and environmental factors. Along with color protection and long-term conditioning benefits, even dry and brittle hair is left soft and replenished with a silky finish and brilliant shine. 
     When I opened the packaging to the treatment, I loved the bottle. It's in a sturdy frosted glass bottle (my favorite type of packaging) with a pump dispenser and all the information you need that was on the box printed, also printed on the back of the bottle.     
Picture
Nice consistency and easy to disperse throughout the hair.
     In the picture above I gave the bottle one and a half pumps and this is how much came out. It is easy to control how much you'd actually want out of the bottle because of their choice of dispenser. Which is why I'm happy to say they didn't choose a spray or plain old open top. This way you don't waste any product or put way to much in your hair and make it greasy looking.
     All I did when using this was apply a couple pumps into my hand and rub them together. Then I would just run my fingers through my damp hair and style as I normally do. You can also apply as needed throughout the day to protect against UV rays and control frizz!
     My hair felt super soft after using this the first time and didn't weigh down my hair so this is perfect for people with fine hair as well. I'm so happy with this power punch in a bottle with all it's nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids, and conditioning treatments that I feel I wish I knew about this even BEFORE I started doing things to my hair. It's like a youth serum for you hair!

     Say goodbye to shaving creams and moisturizers that you use for shaving and after shaving. This all in one Gillette Venus & Olay Razor I got complimentary from Influenster's VoxBox program helps eliminate the need to buy shaving cream and after shower moisturizers!  
     If you think about it, it's pretty smart that Gillette teamed up with Olay, one of the worlds most popular skin care line. It makes perfect sense!  
Picture
"Olay Moisture Bars help lock-in moisture to your skin for less dryness, and with every smoothing stroke, Venus’ five blades shave you close."
     Product Details
  • Venus’ five-bladed razors shave you close and adjust to women’s curves for a smooth and comfortable shave, even over tricky shaving areas like knees and ankles.
  • Olay Moisture Bars contain skin-enhancing elements found in Olay products: Petrolatum helps lock in skin’s moisture for less dryness and Glycerin helps offer that goddess glow! Just wet the razor to release a light lather – no separate shave cream required.
  • As with most Venus razors, new Venus & Olay also features a rounded, pivoting head designed for women’s curves, and a soft-grip ergonomic handle for confident control, even in wet and soapy environment
Picture
How easy and quick it is to pop in a new blade!
     All I had to do was wet my skin and the razor and it took me a total of not even five minutes to shave my legs. I didn't waste time applying and smoothing out shaving cream, rinsing the razor 10 tens, etc. The strips itself lasted about 5-6 shaves but the razor was still in good shape and can still be used when the bars melt away.
Where to Buy
A refillable Venus & Olay with one replacement cartridge sells for approximately $8.99-$10.99. Packages of three replacement cartridges are available for about $14.99 - $19.49.

Venus & Olay will be available starting March 15, 2012 at food, drug, convenience and mass merchandise stores throughout the United States.

 
     Have you ever wanted to add some flair to your hair? Some bright fun colors but don't want to have a commitment to it!? I know I always wanted purple, pink, blue etc in my hair but was always to nervous to add it because I couldn't get it out if I didn't like it, when using hair color!
     I have been introduced to Hair Flairs Color Rub! This is a product that will give you that fun look for yourself (or even you little ones that want to have fun colored hair to go with their fun outfits!)  Color Rub literally rubs onto your hair and then washes out with the next shampoo.
    As you can see the instructions are pretty easy to follow. You can put a leave-in conditioner on the hair prior to applying the color rub to help it last a little longer if you'd like. Also I'd like to note that these colors work BEST and are more vibrant on lighter hair but they DO show up on darker hair as well!
    If you do use this on light hair you may need to do 2-3 washes to get it completely our of your hair. It only took me one wash to get my Ultra Violet Color Rub out.
Picture
Before
Picture
Apply the Color Rub directly on the hair. Massage into hair until evenly covered.
Picture
After: Funky and Fun! <3
    As you can see it is very easily done (2 minutes) and how pigmented it is! You do need to be a little careful as to protect your clothing because it can stain. It reminded me of a large potted eyeshadow, just meant for you hair, not your eyelids!
    I did wash my hands after applying it right away because they state on the directions that it could stain hands or manicures, so wear gloves ;) 
    This Color Rub has 10 different fun colors to experiment with and mix and match! I suggest using two or more colors on the ends of you hair, it looks awesome!

Here is an easy "How To" video:

This is a way to get out my crazy hair cravings without killing my poor hair like I used to ... 


Streekers was thoughtful enough to send us some of their super cool Wild Weekend hair dye.  
Picture
Shown here is Streekers in green. As you can see it is a small lipgloss like tube, with a doe foot applicator (just like a gloss). After doing most of my highlights, there was still more than 75% of the bottle left to use.
Streekers is a company that I have sold to people in the past (I worked retail at a salon supply) and people have come back to thank me for recomending it. I had never tried it myself up until now. I'm glad I did.  
Picture
Look at how fun my highlights look!
Streekers is an awesome products because it washes out in your next shampoo. There is no need for a long term commitment to a fun bold color, which is perfect for the weekend, hence their name Wild Weekend.  
Picture
Streekers added a funky green "lowlight" to my sisters hair. ITS GREAT FOR A NON COMMITMENT HAIR COLOR FOR KIDS AS WELL AS ADULTS.
Streekers will show up vibrant in blonde, or highlighted hair, and will be fun funky lowlights on darker hair. 
Picture
It can get a little messy when applying, and even transfer a little when dry, so keep that in mind. It cleans up very easily with soap and water.
Picture
Adds a quick, and fun twist to an everyday makeup.
Picture
Looks amazing paired with colored brows... if your daring.
Picture
IT EVEN LOOKS AWESOME PULLED BACK INTO A PONY OR BUN. Will add some fun to your sophistication.
 
    Shaving for me is a step I wish I could skip over every time in the shower. I'm pretty sure most of you guys and gals wish the same. But the weird thing is when it comes to getting a new or different type of shaving cream, I almost want to shave my legs to see if it does anything miraculous or anything that I like better than the previous brand I have tried.   
    When Eco-Armour sent me their shaving foam & body wash and guess what! I was excited to try this new product because it was a foam and not a cream or gel formula. So I guess you can say that intrigued me to see how it would hold up.
    All of these products are made with "all natural and organic renewable resource ingredients." Also, countless hours of research taught the creator that witch hazel was not only good for the skin, but also worked well to keep metal surfaces soft and supple." So...what does that have to do with shaving foam? Well after you shave, dry your razor on a towel, then apply the foam to the razor head and leave on between shaves. This patented step extends useful blade life dramatically.
    That was something I thought was awesome, it serves more than one purpose! Shaving, blade saver and body wash! That's less items to pack when going on a vacation!
    The smell was pleasant but not something I was used to because I usually buy the fruity yummy smelling shaving creams. When using this after a while, I noticed I had to use quite a few pumps to finish shaving both legs. That was kind of a pain to have to keep reapplying the product to my legs because where I am used to a thick cream this went on rather thin and if water touched it would rinse off quickly. That is the only complaint I had for this product. Other than that, I had no nicks, cuts or razor bumps which was a plus!
    I also let my friend Tomy try out another bottle I was sent and here is what he had to say: Thank you for the product you gave to me. The shaving foam is excellent. I not only use the product on my face but also on my chest and abdomen. When using this product I was able to notice I did not get any razor burn. Mind you, I am a mid 20's male with sensitive skin and for some reason i always get razor burn. The foam went so smooth across my skin that at one point I couldn't tell I was shaving. I liked this foam and would definitely consider purchasing it.
    With that being said, he did ask me where he could purchase it! He's very happy I let him try a bottle out. :) If you would like to give it a try, visit their website by clicking HERE.

Sedu's Anti-Frizz Polishing Treatment with Pure Argan Oil is a mixture of "Moroccan Argan oils, natural avocado oils and Vitamin E!"  It helps tame down and get rid of frizz and makes your hair feel healthier and adds great shine because of all the oil. Also when using this product in either wet or dry hair, it helps protect your delicate hair from heat damage.

The packaging of this product is quite good quality, the material of the actual bottle is made of a plastic which is a great feature in it self because if you have the oil on your hands and drop the bottle it won't shatter and get the product all over the place. It comes with a pump rather than a pour spout which is key because later on I will tell you how to use this product and you do NOT need much. The pump helps control how much comes out at once so you don't end up wasting product or using to much and making your hair oily looking.

I have the 1 fl. oz of this treatment and can say that that is enough to last me a looong time. Sedu recommends to "Start with a dime-sized amount and apply throughout damp or dry hair, using more or less depending on hair length. Style as usual." After using this for a couple days, I say start out with even a little less than that, especially if you have short hair. So you squirt a little into the palm of your hand and rub together to evenly coat your palm. Then apply the product to wet or dry hair. I highly recommend you evenly distribute the product throughout the ends of your hair first, and then slowly work your way up. Also I recommend only using the product on the part of your hair that would be in a ponytail and most damaged areas, that way you avoid making your hair look greasy.

If you only use a tiny bit at a time, I can promise you that you will not look like you even put oil in your hair like some other anti frizz products I have used in the past. No matter how little I used it seemed to weigh my hair down and make it look dirty and oily. The formulation of Sedu's product makes it absorbs instantly into the hair being treated, leaving no room for it to sit on top of the hair and make it greasy.

The oils are strengthening and moisturizing and made my hair look like I just got a treatment from a salon and shiny and a lot less flyaways. It also has a slight vanilla-ish scent to it that I found pleasant.

My mother noticed right away after my first time using it, she asked if I had did something new with my hair. I was also so happy to find that I didn't have to go rewash my hair the first time using this because I have hair that easily gets greasy on its own to begin with so you can imagine how nervous I was about adding oil to it.

I imagine you could also use this as a hot oil treatment as well by heating a little in the microwave and leaving it on the ends of your hair before showering for a half hour. I used this with someone who had curly hair and it worked making the curls softer and more defined since there wasn't many stray hairs around them. So overall it's great for any hair type and for the price, the smaller bottle lasts a very long time. I recommend giving it a try and I'll bet you'll get another bottle when your done :)

                                          REVIEW #2

This product was sent to me to review, but I am not being paid for this review. This is my honest opinion.

I've dished out way more money on hair products in a year than anyone should in a lifetime. I have very damaged hair from over coloring, over styling and just straight abuse. ahahha... This product is really nice. Its silky and fairly light weight. It might be heavy for people with thin hair or who don't have a lot of hair, but for those with some length, volume or texture, I think it's great. 


This product has an easy to use pump, which allows you to eliminate the greasy hair look from using too much product. 

The light "nutty...earthy... sugary" smell (I know that sounds gross, but trust me it isn't) is very uplifting especially in the morning when I am feeling grumpy. This is from the Moroccan argan oil in it. (If you have ever used the brand Moroccan Oil, this smells similar). 

I applied this polishing treatment to my damp hair and let it air dry. My hair looked amazingly tamed with a nice sheen. Definitely a "just from the salon" look with literally no effort. I applied a pea sized amount to my ends after my hair was dry, and it worked amazingly at making them appear smoother. 

I will definitely buy this product once I use all of mine up, but a little goes a long way so this will last me a while. 

If you have any questions please feel free to ask away
