Blow out with Keranique

With an unusually warm Dec night comes all things wonderful. I stopped by Tribeca salon Pas De Deux to see the new Keranique products for 2013. I have previously reviewed and tried that hair line and loved the results.

Fight Off Frizzy Hair @nexxushair

I’ve never tried Nexxus hair products before so I was super excited when I received my Frizz Defy Shampoo and Conditioner.

The shampoo and conditioner will control frizz all day and give you the smooth hair you have hidden underneath. It will also help your hair if you use heat styling products.

Frizz Defy Shampoo

These smell great, with Moroccan Argan Oil and Coconut Extract. The conditioner really leaves my hair feeling moisturized. These two will also help with humid days and if your hair is feeling a little dry like mine does sometimes. I also really like the Argan Oil in the products. As for the shampoo, it works nicely with my thick, long hair. My hair feels healthy, manageable and ready to take on the day! I can’t wait to continue to use these during the winter months…

High Shine with Orchid Bliss Shampoo

White Sands is proud to announce the addition of Orchid Bliss Shampoo & Conditioner to their current line of superior salon hair cleansing products. Encompassing a one of a kind concept, Orchid Bliss utilizes the anti-aging characteristics and mineral richness of the orchid flower to support color retention with a sulfate-free formula while providing strand revitalization and cuticle nutrition all in one.

I wash my hair almost everyday and I am always trying new products. The most important thing about a shampoo for me is that it smells good!  I recently received samples from Orchid Bliss Shampoo and tried it out. The smell is faint and pretty and it left my hair manageable and smooth. The conditioner was creamy and I didn’t have to use a lot to get a silky frizz free look. I like that the bottles have a dipstick and pump and it is a welcomed addition to my bathroom 🙂

Here’s more information about why this exotic flower is the latest and greatest ingredient in hair care!

Orchids, known for their moisturizing properties, fight free radicals, increase hair immunity and reduce the appearance of strand imperfections. Enhanced by the duo’s fresh citrus scent, the orchid extract contained in Orchid Bliss Shampoo & Conditioner in addition to natural ingredients like sunflower seed extract, grape seed oil, carrot seed, olive extract, apricot kernel & more restore back the moisture, shine, elasticity and softness to hair that has been damaged from chemical treatments, thermal stress and daily UV exposure. This orchid complex will instantly fill in the cracks and imperfections in each strand giving a high shine, making hair simply brilliant with UV protection in addition to effortlessly working in conjunction with other styling products to improve texture, repel moisture, while enhancing vibrant color.

@TIGIHaircareUSA Hair Reborn Product Review

TIGI recently released their newest hair care line, Hair Reborn, and I got to try it out!

First I learned about the new line at their flagship studio in SoHo…

TIGI Hair Reborn features highly concentrated ingredients that repair and protect the hair. The products are designed to leave even the most damaged hair smooth, healthy and frizz-free by using caring ingredients to restore hair to its natural, youthful state.

There are three different “journeys,” or collections of shampoo, conditioner and treatments for you to chose from based on your hair type ($30-$45):

  • Resurgence for dry hair
  • Awakening for week, damaged hair
  • Serenity for frizz-prone hair

The line also features a collection of “Style Treats,” styling products for use on all hair regardless of which journey you choose. Style treats include:

  • Rebuilding Wax ($30)
  • Texturizing Souffle ($30)
  • Restorative IllunminOil ($30)
  • Resurfacing Lusterizer ($30)
  • Colour Protecting Conditioning Tonic ($30)
  • Flexible Finishing Hairspray ($30)

I took home the Resurgence collection: Hydra-Synergy Shampoo, Hydra-Synergy Conditioner and Time Extend Moisture Lotion Take-Home Treatment. And the Rebuilding Wax, Restorative IlluminOil, Resurfacing Lusterizer, and Flexible Finishing Hairspray.

And here is the result…

I loved it! The shampoo and conditioner made my hair feel clean, but moisturized, and I really liked the scent. I’m partial to sulfate-free shampoos, but I felt this one was gentle even though it does contain sulfates.

The Time Extend Moisture Lotion has come to be my new best friend. It’s an instant shot of moisture as soon as it touches your hair and you only need a dollop. It made my hair smooth and tangle free.

I’ve mixed and matched the styling products, but my favorite it the Restorative IlluminOil. It’s great for adding shine and protecting hair from humidity.

TIGI Hair Reborn is an exclusive brand that can only be found in select salons. Check out TIGI’s website to find a salon near you:

MicroStimulation with Keranique

I have been using the Shampoo and Conditioner from Keranique this past 3 weeks. And I feel like my hair is shiny and smooth 🙂

Peppermint oil has been used for centuries to cure a number of medical issues including stomach ailments, cold symptoms and headaches. This powerful ingredient also helps to enhance hair and scalp health.

Keranique has incorporated peppermint oil into its new volumizing shampoo and conditioner. The ingredient works to gently moisturize the hair shaft while stimulating micro-circulation and new hair growth. A tingling, cooling effect occurs when peppermint oil is massaged into the scalp, helping to balance the PH levels and banish oily hair – and the fresh, invigorating scent of peppermint will last all day!

The Keranique Volumizing Shampoo gently deep cleans, stimulates/nourishes the scalp and follicles, and removes oil/build up that drags hair down. The shampoo is free of sulfates, parabens and synthetic fragrances. $35

The Keranique Volumizing Conditioner coats the hair to make each strand thicker and protects fine hair with a unique cream-gel formula that doesn’t weigh it down. It is also formulated to help hydrate and stimulate micro-circulation around the hair follicle to help nourish the hair. The conditioner’s blend of technologies penetrates each hair shaft to help smooth cuticles, mend split ends and decrease hair breakage. $35

The products are available now via and
