Smooth Waves with @JohnFriedaUS

I have been growing my hair since June and now it is almost ponytail length!  I love it when long hair has a slight curl but it is still smooth. I remember in 11th grade my oh-so glamorous friend Maria use to use these but they had complicated pins and prongs. So I am happy that now, 10 years later, they have come up with newer and easier tools.  Even though you can achieve this look in a few different ways with or without tools (like rolling your hair up while damp in a bun and then letting it out when it’s dry). Using hot rollers is one of the easiest ways.

 

I recently tried the John Frieda Smooth Waves Conair Hair Setter.

It featuring five 2-inch titanium ceramic-coated jumbo rollers, this breakthrough hair setter helps you create silky waves for a naturally sensual look. The cutting-edge, professional-grade design uses a true ionic generator to safely distribute heat throughout hair, so there’s no fear of frizz or dull strands. Hair wraps easily around the generously-sized 2” jumbo rollers, which use an extreme heat feature to heat up instantly, delivering perfectly smooth, voluminous waves in a flash.

The best thing about this is how easy it is to use. You plug it in, it heats up and then you curl your hair around it. It doesn’t slide because of the textured surface and it doesn’t burn your fingers if you hold on to the purple part. The clip is easy to put on and then you just wait 10 mins. You will feel the heat emit from the rollers while you wait and you can think about how hot you are going to look once it’s finished 🙂

I am sure that I will be using this a lot more when my hair gets a few inches longer!

Get that New New @lushcosmetics

I have always loved LUSH and walked by 10000 times in Toronto on Queen Street and then in New York on 14th Street. This place is fantastic and also Canadian!  I have received their multi-tier soaps and sizzling bath bombs as Christmas presents but I have yet to be an avid user… That is until now!

Maybe this one little tin will replace everything in my bathroom…

My girl Fatema keeps her top hair secrets ‘under wraps’ but I have no doubt in my mind when she told me about the NEW shampoo that makes your hair grow beautifully.

STIMULATING AND REVIVING MINTY SHAMPOO BAR

There’s nothing new about our stimulating cinnamon and clove shampoo bar. But, it is incredibly effective at giving you thicker, shinier hair and invigorating your scalp. When stress or life goes to your head, our shampoo will encourage hair growth and motivated tired scalps with spice and mint oils. It’s intense, (in the best possible way), but works wonders on irritated scalps or hair that’s thinning. Rosemary and nettle herbs rejuvenate, and make your hair shiny and soft as a feather. All of this, in one little beautifully fragranced spice bar; are you ready for a NEW shampoo?
  • Bar on top: Customer and staff favorite, NEW is perfectly suited to all hair types, not just those who are feeling follicly challenged.
  • A force to be reckoned with: Herbs and spice, and everything minty and nice for shiny, healthy hair and scalps.
  • Spice up your life: We use cinnamon leaf oil to stimulate your follicles and encourage healthy hair growth.

I totally can’t wait to try this!!
