Living Proof Prime Style Extender

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

erase smallerIt makes sense that an actress famous for a haircut with have her own line of hair products. We tried Jennifer Aniston’s Living Proof Prime Style Extender, which is supposed to make your hair style last twice as long. But our favorite part is that it’s also supposed to repel dirt and oil so your hair stays cleaner longer. We found that Living Proof Prime Style Extender does indeed extend the life of your hairstyle. However, it didn’t do much for fighting frizz. If you live in a humid climate, you’ll have to layer this underneath a frizz serum. Keep in mind that this isn’t a firm hold, so it won’t freeze your hair in place like a hairspray would. Living Proof Prime Style Extender more so retains your hair’s texture.

Tip: When using a curling iron, make your curls last longer by pinning them with hair clips so your hair cools while still in the curl shape. Leave them in for at least 15 minutes.

So it stands to reason that their shampoo would be great for hair that’s in bad shape as well. We tried AVEENO® NOURISH+ STRENGTHEN Shampoo, which has a wheat complex that works to fortify the hair. It claims to repair up to 90% of breakage in just 3 washes. This shampoo is great for dry hair. It doesn’t dry it out and leaves enough elasticity to comb without a lot of breakage. Volume wise, this shampoo falls somewhere in the middle. It doesn’t provide a lot of volume but it doesn’t really flatten your hair either. We think this is a great product for anyone who has abused their hair with heat, chemicals, or color treatment. It smells great too! If you have fine thin hair that’s not damaged, you probably won’t be happy with the volume.

Tip: If your hair is damaged, sleep on a satin pillowcase. This is also better for your skin. Cotton absorbs moisture and isn’t very kind to your hair.

Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

ALL hairsprays say that they will not flake, make your hair sticky, or make your hair stiff. However, we’ve found that you usually have to choose between great hold and touchable hair. Fekkai’s Sheer Hold Hairspray actually backs up these claims and allows you to create hairstyles that you can brush afterwards! We really recommend this product for creating waves, which seems to be one of the most popular ways to style hair right now. It works well because it holds just enough to keep curling iron created waves in place, but you still have movement. What’s great about this hairspray is that your hair won’t look too ‘done’. If you’re going for a more rigid hold or for a more elaborate hairstyle, then this hairspray may be a little too lightweight for what you’re looking for. If you’d like to give this product a try, enter our contest of the month! Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray is part of the prize.

Tip: To create waves like the celebs, leave one inch of hair free at the end of your curling iron. For a real natural look, try a clamp free curling iron.

Scunci Effortless Beauty Fashion Headbands

Friday, November 11th, 2011

Have you every worn a headband and then had to take it off after a few hours because it gave you a headache? There’s no shortage of cute headbands but it’s hard to find ones that aren’t too tight but also stay in your hair. We found Scunci Effortless Beauty Fashion Headbands at Walgreens on sale for $2.99 and thought they were amazing! These headbands are the most comfortable ones we’ve tried to date. They come in assorted colors with a snake print pattern (each pack comes with 3), and they have teeth in each headband that keeps your hair in place. If you use the teeth to go through your hair when you put it on it actually makes the look neater! We didn’t see these headbands on the Scunci website so we’re hoping that doesn’t mean they’re being discontinued! You can check out the headbands on the Walgreens website at
