Dear Locks, 

After years of running away from you, I can finally embrace what you are and I love it.  No more are the days where I wish to wear you straight because I’m afraid of the torment and teasing your curliness brings.  Today – I am proud to have you, proud to say you are mine and happy to be your owner!

Love,

Honey

Macadamia Professional Hair Care

Spring is here… woohoo!  But, with the gorgeous blooms of spring come the repair of damage that Winter has done to my hair.  This particular cold season even had Hawaii experiencing the weather that does heavy damage to my ends and my lengthy locks.  In order to have gorgeous hair for Spring (which is the season I wear my hair down the most), I need to add in extra moisture to hydrate and repair the hurt that Winter has done.  This is no easy task and it is essential that the products I use nurture and revive my hair to the beauty it can be.

Macadamia Professional Hair Care

Macadamia Professional Hair Care products have been a favorite of mine for years and recently I incorporated some of the Nourishing Moisture line in my hair care routine.  The Nourishing Moisture Shampoo (net wt. 10 fl.oz. / 300ml), Conditioner (10 fl. oz / 300ml) and Oil Spray (4.2 fl.oz. / 125 ml) have provided my long locks with much needed moisture to combat the cold winter blues and adding lustre and softness that my hair desperately needed.  Perfect for Medium-Coarse textured hair, this product line provides much needed benefits like re-hydrating, restoring and re-balancing our hair and prepping it for the heat of summer months.  These products include their Pro Oil complex of Macadamia and Argan Oil blend which help to repair my hair giving it life once again.

Since I tend to use my hair natural now a days, no heat or styling tools in order for my curls to look soft and pretty, I need to ensure that the products I am using do not strip my hair of natural oils and provide my locks with much needed moisture to keep from frizzing.  All of Macadamia Professional Hair Care products are formulated to contain the highest amount of Omega 7 than any other oil out there.  This oil is the closest to resemble the human hair sebum and because of this, it mimics the scalps natural oil product, keeping my hair looking and feeling healthy, but also ensuring my scalp is protected to encourage good hair growth and a healthy hair shaft.  The products are created with a key value to repair the hair from the inside out, rather than just repairing the surface.  Honestly – it’s kind of like taking vitamins to encourage health, these products offer a similar concept and its goal is to renew your hair texture.

These products from Macadamia Hair are free of Sulfates, Parabens and Gluten, which further helps to keep my hair moisturized without the added chemicals that other products can include and I love that I don’t have to worry about my colored hair since this line is Color Safe.  Furthermore, Macadamia Hair is Cruelty-Free which is great for my fur and animal friends.  As I mentioned previously, I’m a long time supporter and user of Macadamia Hair Care and their line of products and after using the Nourishing Moisture line in my hair care regimen, I noticed my hair is softer, much more manageable and shiny.  With Winter waving Aloha and Spring getting started, I know my hair will be ready to show itself off.  I’m excited!

Dear Hair,

I’m excited to show you off!  

Don’t worry – I got you!

Woohoo – Spring is starting to show its colors and I’m loving the scent of the sweet smelling flora that’s blooming near me.  When I think of Spring, I think of bright shades, hot neon tones and simple looks that make a statement.  Today I bring to you a Spring inspired makeup look along with my girls from the Beauty Blogger Collaboration.  This look features the bright and bold shades from the Urban Decay Electric palette – it’s debut here on my site and YouTube channel.  This look, while offering a bold statement – is quite easy to achieve and I hope you enjoy it!  Welcome Spring!

Be sure to check out my tutorial (embedded below) on how to create this look, or click here to watch it directly on YouTube.

This is the first time I have used the Electric Palette for a makeup look posted to my blog or YouTube channel so when I thought about the look I wanted to create for this collaboration, it immediately stood out to me as the makeup I wanted to use.  This look is bold… and as a child of the 80s, it reminds me of big haired rocker bands or bermuda shorts with bold neon shades.  I absolutely love it.
