As a blogger, I have tried many (more than I could ever count) hair products over the years. With hair as long as mine, I tend to try different products in different price ranges to see what works for me. Let’s face it, curly hair, short hair, long hair or straight hair – no matter the type, hair can be a challenge to figure out. Well, my hair is a beast, all on its own. It’s long, curly and can be my worst nightmare sometimes. I’m constantly pleading with it to give me a break and I’m always looking for products that will help mend my “hair relationship” to make my job a bit easier. I have a love hate relationship with my locks and as much as I take time taking care of myself and taking pride in my well being and health, I need products that will pamper my hair for me. Nexxus New York Salon Care hair products give me salon-quality ingredients for lustrous and beautiful locks and today I’m going to share with you which products give me this option from the comfort of my home.
Nexxus New York Salon Care offers a variety of products to suit your hair care needs. Let’s start off with the base of any hair care routine – the Shampoo & Conditioner. Nexxus New York Salon Care THERAPPE Replenishing System Shampoo is Silicone Free and includes the Caviar Complex and concentrated 100% Pure Elastin Protein. THERAPPE Rebalancing Shampoo cleanses your hair while nourishing it from deep within. This shampoo has been a lifesaver on my summer locks, since the warm Hawaii weather tend to do damage on my hair. After the first use, I noticed my hair shaft feels softer and stronger with less breakage. Since my color fades the quickest in the summer, I noticed that my hair has kept its color vibrant and shiny. Since all Nexxus shampoos are silicone free, I am thankful that I do not have to worry about my curls getting dried out or lacking moisture. My hair is balanced, nourished and protected.
Next I used the Nexxus New York Salon Care Humectress Replenishing System Conditioner. This conditioner with Caviar Complex and concentrated protein is the perfect addition to the Shampoo in the Caviar Complex System. This shampoo leaves my hair soft and silky while restoring a protective barrier after my hair has taken a beating from the warm weather. Working hand in hand with the THERAPPE Replenishing System Shampoo, this product is the perfect sister for treating your locks. I love the way this conditioner moves through my hair. It has the perfect amount of slip to coat each of my strands of hair while allowing me to finger comb through my hair to detangle. Each strand of hair is left moisturized and hydrated while leaving my curls bouncy and soft.
Since my hair is already long and heavy, a leave in conditioner can often weigh down my locks. That’s where the Nexxus New York Salon Care Humectress Luxe Replenishing System Light Weight Conditioning Mist comes in. The best friend to any one who has curly hair like I do – this product is a must have. This lightweight – well, weightless actually, conditioning mist conditions the hair surface while releasing shine and improving manageability. I absolutely love this product. I use it in my hair after shampoo and conditioning and once my hair has been towel dried. I like to add it to my hair when my hair is slightly damp. I apply through my hair started from the ends and working my way up to the roots and then if I really need to – I will comb through to distribute the product. Usually – I can work through my hair and let it air dry. This product leaves my hair soft and silky while helping to really drench my hair in much needed moisture. When I use this product, I have noticed that my hair doesn’t feel so brittle and I get less breakage than before. Not to mention, my tangles are at a minimum – major win there!
Of course, if you are anything like me, then you may also add a masque to your hair treatment now and then. Nexxus New York Salon Care has your covered with their HUMECTRESS Replenishing System Masque. It has their Caviar Complex and concentrated protein to leave your hair looking stunning. This mask is rich in Glycerin and infused at a level that deeply hydrates by binding moisture within the hair. Used in combination with the other products in this line, this mask helps to release true alignment for hair that moves as you do with liquid fluidity. This masque is used as a Step 2 in the process, before your conditioner absolutely LOVE the texture of this masque. It’s thick and butter like and I feel like it instantly infuses into my hair when I’m applying it. Did I mention I love this masque? After the first use of this product my hair felt like it was living a whole new life and I absolutely enjoyed every minute of it.
When you have hair as long and as curly as mine is, you definitely want to ensure that you not only treat it to the right products, but make sure you are keeping your lustrous locks happy. I love products that offer my hair salon-quality ingredients that leave my hair looking fluid, enriched and absolutely beautiful. The Nexxus New York Salon Care products are just what I need to bring out the “just left the salon” look and add that extra bounce in my step. I love how soft and gorgeous my hair feels after each use and how happy my curls feel that they are infused with moisture to keep them looking fresh, bouncy and happy.

I talk about hair a lot here on the blog and share different products from different brands several times a month. As much as I love and gravitate towards highend brands to care for my long tresses, I have really found love in HASK hair care products because they are not only awesome for the hair, but extremely affordable. With hair as long as mine, I can go through so much product consistently and affordable products like those from HASK make caring for my hair easy to do. Today I share with you the HASK Bamboo Oil Collection. This collection of products is made specifically for strengthening and nourishing your hair and since Hawaii is in full blown summer, I definitely need it. The summer months tend to do a lot of damage on my hair so a product line like this one helps to keep my hair looking perfect year long.
“Sure, Life isn’t perfect but my hair is!” – HASK
The HASK Bamboo Oil Collection consists of four products. Each product is formulated to work together, like a team to help strengthen, nourish and condition for healthy hair. The line features a Shampoo, Conditioner, Deep Conditioner and Shine Oil – all of which are formulated with ProDefense Complex that penetrates your hair to strengthen, reinforce and protect. This is especially important for me since summer does so much damage to my hair that I really need the extra care and protection. Formulated with Bamboo oil which is known as one of Asia’s natural treasures, it is proven to strengthen your hair and infuse essential nutrients that help to revive weakened and lifeless locks. With the added benefit of biotin and collagen, this silicon-rich bamboo oil helps to give hair a strong base and foundation to improve flexibility and strength as well as prevent split ends.
Let’s first discuss each product first and then I’ll chit chat about my thoughts on the entire line.
HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening Shampoo ($5.99 – 12.0 FL.OZ. /355 mL) is a shampoo formulated with ProDefense Complex, a protein-based complex that penetrates hair to build and reinforce strength and protect the hair. This product is perfect for fragile or thin hair like mine because it helps to protect from damage and breakage to provide a strong foundation for your hair. This shampoo applies nicely to my hair and while it is sulfate free, I feel like it works through my hair like a lather without stripping moisture or leaving my hair dry. It also doesn’t dry my scalp which is a HUGE bonus since so many other shampoos can do so.
HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening Conditioner ($5.99 – 12.0 FL.OZ. /355 mL) works hand in hand with the strengthening shampoo. Also formulated with the ProDefense Complex to help protect fragile hair from damage and breakage, this conditioner not only helps to strengthen and reinforce the hair, but it leaves my hair feeling soft and easy to manage. I especially enjoy that I can finger comb through my hair easily. The texture of this conditioner is similar to others that I’ve tried from HASK in that it has enough slip to detangle my hair but still thick enough to coat my long hair without needing to drench my hair in the whole bottle.
HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening Deep Conditioner ($2.99 – 1.75 fl.oz. / 50g) Also formulated with the ProDefense Complex, this deep conditioner helps to strengthen, moisturize and reinforce fragile hair. With silicone rich bamboo to help provide a strong foundation for hair, this deep condition helps to improve flexibility and leaves hair resilient and less prone to split ends and breakage. I apply a good amount of deep conditioner to my hair after washing with shampoo. One packet of this stuff will be split in half for two different treatments unless I feel I need more, one packet will be used on my entire hair. I massage into my hair focusing on damaged areas and leave on for about 10 minutes. I usually will put this on while I shave. I rinse the product from my hair well and then style as I normally would when I’m done in the shower. I like to use this one to two times a week. My hair feels so soft and manageable after one use and I notice that I definitely get less breakage which is a HUGE deal for me.
HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening Strengthening Shine Hair Oil ($2.99 – 5/8 fl.oz. / 18mL) This hair oil helps to repair broken, limp and lifeless hair. It protects your hair from damage and breakage and instantly absorbs into the hair shaft to provide a strong foundation for hair and leaves no greasy residue. With bamboo oil, biotin and collagen to help reinforce and prevent split ends, leaving your hair strong and healthier looking. I use this on my hair when my hair is damp to help seal in moisture and on my dry hair to help revive my hair and help with frizz for a smooth finish. Just a coin-sized amount throughout my hair works well and I try to avoid the root area as much as possible to keep from weighing my hair down. However – if it does get near my roots, this is not a heavy oil and I find it leaves my hair shiny, smooth, silky and manageable.
I have tried several different collections from HASK and I’m always impressed with each one. The Bamboo Oil line really has made a difference in how my hair has been acting this summer, leaving it smooth and shiny but my hair seems somewhat stronger and I have less breakage. As I mentioned previously, summer takes the biggest beating on my hair and this collection of hair products has definitely helped to strengthen my hair so that it can take the stress from the warm months.
HASK products can be purchased from retailers like Walmart and Target and you can learn more about the different collections and products via their website at: http://haskbeauty.com/
I’m looking forward to trying a few other lines from HASK in the future. This brand has become a household name for us, offering each person a hair care line that can suit their specific hair needs. With great products that are affordable, you can’t beat the quality of what HASK offers. It’s become a favorite brand of mine for hair products over the years and I’m loving each product I’ve tried. Have you tried anything from HASK before? If so – what have you tried and what are your favorites? Do you think that your hair could benefit from using this particular collection?

I wouldn’t consider myself to be the object of anyone’s hair envy… in fact, I have mentioned time and time again how much I have grown in learning how to care for and treat my hair over the years. But, apparently – my hair is a strong asset for me and something I’m known for. Long, curly… absolutely unruly at times, my locks are a statement all their own and they definitely have come a long way. Over the years I have tried many many hair care products and have found my favorites in both the expensive and high-end brands and those you find more affordable and at the drugstore. But, I’m always on the hunt for a hair care line that will offer my hair results consistently as well as something I know I can afford at a moments notice, not something I have to save up for. I’ve talked about HASK here on my blog a few times over the last couple of years and I have so because I have absolutely enjoyed the line. Today I share with you the HASK Kalahari Melon Oil Hair Care Collection and my thoughts on the products as well as how they have worked for my hair.
The HASK Kalahari Melon Oil Collection consists of four products (as does most of the HASK hair care collections) in the line – Shampoo, Conditioner, Deep Conditioner and Shine Oil. Each product is formulated with Color Shield Complex, which helps to protect color-treated hair from damage and fading caused by every day washing and heat styling.
So what is Kalahari Melon Oil? Well, the Kalahari Melon is found in the African desert and thrives by retaining its moisture in the driest conditions. The Kalahari Melon has moisturizing, regenerating and restructuring properties thanks to its high content of essential fatty acids (50 – 70% linoleic acid) which is known to help contribute to the integrity of the cell wall and to the suppleness and beauty of your skin and hair. When the oil is extracted and used in beauty regimens, it plays a key role in the regulation of hydration and restructuring of the epidermis of the skin and hair follicle. This wonderful ingredient counteracts moisture loss and fading, leaving your color-treated hair healthy and vibrant.
Let’s take a look at each product and discuss the benefits and uses, shall we?
Kalahari Melon Oil Color Protection Shampoo ($5.99 – 12 fl.oz. / 355 mL) helps to shield and replenish the hair. With the color Shield Complex, it has a UV absorber to help protect colored hair from damage and fading. The Kalahari Melon Oil helps to lock in your color and block damage from your hair, leaving it nourished and shiny. With the Color Shield Complex, cranberry and sunflower oils, this shampoo will delicately cleanse without stripping, drying or fading your hair and provide long lasting, vibrant color. Simply apply to wet hair, massage into a lather, rinse thoroughly and repeat if desired. This product is ideal for daily use, but I only wash my hair 2 – 3 times a week so I use as such.
** After using this product, my hair looked shinier, felt soft and was very manageable. What I love the most about it is even if it is oil infused, my hair did not look or feel weighted down or heavy and it was not greasy after the 2nd and 3rd day without washing.
Kalahari Melon Oil Color Protection Conditioner ($5.99 – 12 fl.oz. / 355 mL) also helps to shield and replenish the hair. With the same Color Shield Complex as the shampoo, it absorbs UV to protect colored hair from damage and fading. The conditioner softens, detangles and helps to maintain long lasting vibrant color. To use apply to wet hair after shampooing or use as a co-washing product. Leave on for 1-2 minutes and rinse thoroughly. This product is ideal for daily use as well, though again – I use it as much as the shampoo.
** After using this product my hair felt really soft and tangles literally fall out of my hair without finger combing. I absolutely love the scent and love how soft my hair feels.
Kalahari Melon Oil Color Protection Deep Conditioner ($2.99 – 1.75 fl.oz. / 50g) also includes the Color Shield Complex to protect your colored hair from damage and fading. This deep conditioner is an ultra-restorative, hydrating treatment that will preserve and nurture your color treated hair. With the Kalahari Melon Oil, it helps to counteract dry-out and fading, leaving your hair soft and nourished while still helping to maintain the long-lasting vibrant color we all look for in our hair. To use this deep conditioner, simply apply a generous amount to your clean, wet hair. Due to the length of my hair – I usually will get two uses out of one packet, depending on the conditioning process I’m following. Massage into your hair focusing on the damaged areas and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse well and style as usual. You can use this deep conditioner ideally 1-2 times a week or as needed. I usually use it once a week and have used this particular product several times.
** It’s hard to find a good deep conditioner that doesn’t weigh my hair down or leave my scalp so greasy that I break out. This one leaves my scalp feeling nice, but my hair is not heavy and feels great.
Kalahari Melon Oil Color Protection Shine Oil ($2.99 – 5/8 fl. oz. / 18mL) is perfect to preserve and nurture your gorgeous colored locks. This lightweight, alcohol-free oil instantly absorbs to help protect color treated hair and leaves behind no funky greasy residue. It can be used on both wet and dry hair to create a silky, smooth finish. Distribute a coin-sized amount evenly throughout hair and avoid the root area. Apply more as you need and best used on hair already protected and treated with the HASK Kalahari Melon Oil System.
** I use this product on my hair when it is wet to help lock in and seal my hair shaft with much needed oil. I also use this product on my hair dry when I need to help give my hair a little extra shine, eliminate some frizz and bring back much needed moisture in my locks. While it is suggested to not get near the root area, I can’t help to avoid it sometimes, but I don’t notice that my hair is weight down or greasy at all.
As I mentioned previously, I have used different collections from HASK in the past and it’s a brand I continue to purchase and stock in my house. I love the products and I love the quality of hair care I get from the brand. Choosing HASK whether it is their Kalahari Melon Oil Collection or others from the brand ensures that I will be getting the same quality I have come to know and love and that my hair loves too. The HASK Kalahari Melon Oil Collection is free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol and artificial colors so I know that it will not only protect my hair and my color but also help to keep my curls looking great. With so many different brands on the market today, it’s great to know that there is one out there that I can rely on to offer my hair care routine awesome hair loving ingredients and protection.
Have you tried anything from HASK before? What are your favorites if you have? I have tried several of their collections from the Argan Oil and Keratin Oil to others as well and I have ALWAYS been impressed. If you are looking for quality products at super awesome price tags, I highly suggest you check out this brand. You can visit their website at: http://www.haskbeauty.com and check out their “Where to buy” tab to see locations near you where you can get the products. You can also find them at your local Target or Walmart as well as other retailers.

No matter what time of the year or what season, my hair will certainly prove to have a mind of its own. From a full head of frizz to lack luster locks, loss of shine and even days when my natural curls lose their oomph and fall flat… my hair loves showing me who is boss and who runs the show sometimes. But, when times like this are in demand, I make sure to fight back with hair products and a whole lot of hair love to rescue my locks and show it who’s boss. Over the years, as a beauty blogger, I have had the opportunity to try many different hair care products – many I absolutely love and some fall short but I’m still thankful for these opportunities because I have been able to learn how to care for my hair properly, treat it well and in turn, my hair looks great. Today I’m going to share with you a hair care line that I have been loving – Nexxus Oil Infinite System and how it has rescued my hair.
When it comes to hair care, I’m all about simplicity and affordability. Yes, I will admit that I indulge in hair products that can be costly, but if I can find a favorite brand or product at the drugstore store for half the cost or less… I’ll be the first person in line to pick it up. The Nexxus Oil Infinite Oil Infusing System consists of three hair loving products that will really rescue your hair from damage while protecting it as well. This oil infusing system is perfect for dull hair (which I tend to have as we transition in seasons from Winter/colder months to Spring and Summer) and helps you to regain control of your unmanageable locks. The line is specifically formulated using concentrated, 100% pure Elastin Protein and natural Babassu and Marula Oils to help renew your hair’s texture and restore its smooth, sleek, fluid beauty.
Step One: Nexxus Oil Infinite Shampoo ($9.97 – 400 mL/13.5 fl.oz.) This Oil Infinite Shampoo helps to rebalance your hair while cleansing and replenishes lipids to help nourish your hair within. It’s unique technology infuses the oils (Babassu and Marula) into the hair to help with unmanageable, rough hair that you can sometimes get after coloring, treatment or after the harsh and colder winter months. This shampoo helps to restore softness, reduce frizz and make your hair much more manageable. Since I want to protect my curls and keep them hydrated, moisturized and frizz free, I tend to gravitate to products that not only help to cleanse and replenish nutrients, but also leave my hair weightless, so that my natural curls don’t fall out or go limp. I also look for products that are silicone-free, which this one is… allowing my hair to be primed for rich conditioning in the next step.
This shampoo is thick in texture since it contains a concentration of pure protein and conditioning polymers, but it leaves my hair feeling soft after just one use. I love that this product helps to decrease the frizz and helps to relieve my hair when it starts to feel and look dry. Furthermore, the scent of this shampoo is great… I can smell these products in my hair until my next wash – not that it’s a bad thing, of course.
Step Two: Nexxus Oil Infinite Conditioner ($14.97 – 400mL / 13.5 fl.oz.) This Oil Infinite Conditioner is also enriched with great oils like Babassu and Marula as well as the concentrated 100% Pure Elastin Protein. The conditioner is infused with these precious oils to help seal in rich luminosity, protect the hair and really restore the lipid layer of hair. I love that this conditioner helps to add a protective barrier to my hair by using targeted micro silicons that intelligently deposit only where they are needed on the hair fiber. You have a conditioner that seals in the nourishment, smooths your hair without that funky, heavy residue and leaves your hair balanced and flexible.
I especially enjoy using this conditioner for untangling or finger combing my hair in the shower. It’s thick enough to really coat the hair but still has enough slip to allow me to work my fingers through my hair easily to untangle each strand. And, like the shampoo, this conditioner smells really good too. Working together with the shampoo, this conditioner provides a balance that those at Nexxus call… “the perfect equilibrium”.
Lastly, Step Three: Nexxus Oil Infinite Nourishing Hair Oil ($13.47 – 100 mL / 3.38 fl.oz.) This Oil Infinite Nourishing Hair Oil is infused with a rich 6 oil blend, including pure Amazonian Babassu Oil which is known to be used for generations as a rich emollient and African Marula Oil which is renowned for its healing properties. This rich, versatile oil infusion encapsulates the hair, nourishes deep within the hair shaft and replenishes the lipid layer on the surface to help reduce frizz, enhance softness and improve your hair’s manageability. It is the perfect hair oil to help your hair if your have rough or coarse locks and if you are looking for a smooth texture, added shine and overall luster.
I LOVE the scent of this product and one to two pumps is more than enough to work through my long hair… starting from the ends and working the product through the lengths up my hair shaft and ending at my roots. It’s a light weight hair oil, so your hair will not lose it’s volume if you use the right amount and I love to use this product through out the week, between washes to help revive, refresh and tame my frizz.
If you are looking to revive and rescue your hair, whether you color it like me or you just want to add more shine and luster, you need to head on over to your local Walmart or Walmart.com and check out the Nexxus Oil Infinite Oil Infusing System. This hair care line is pretty awesome, restoring your hair to greatness and all at an affordable cost.

“This post was sponsored by Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture, all thoughts and opinions are my own.”
The Winter months tend to take its toll on my hair and by the time Spring makes its way here, my hair tends to need a little extra TLC. With Spring in full swing, I want to make sure that my hair is not only protected for the warmer months, but that the frizz that tends to be prominent is kept at bay. This season I’m treating my hair to a little extra love with the help of Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture. Our skin and bodies aren’t the only things that need a little finesse, our hair needs some love too. Do you have curly hair like I do and need a little extra hair pampering come Spring? If so, keep reading as I walk your through what I do to keep my curls tame and frizz free with a little extra definition. Call it a tutorial or just some of my favorite tips… whatever your play on words, follow along as I take you through my Spring Hair Care Pampering.
Over the years, my hair has lost a lot of its curl thanks to my consistent use of heat on it. Because of this, I try my best to use my hair as natural as possible, using products that not only infuse moisture into my hair, but protect my hair shaft and define my curls. Most of the products I use are formulated with ingredients like coconut oil (I also use the real thing on my hair all the time) to help keep my hair hydrated and my curls springy. Recently I have added awesome products from Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture’s Coconut & Moringa Oil line to help combat my frizz and define my curls. This line has been a substantial difference in how my hair feels and how great it looks.
The innovation behind the newly launched collections from Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture combines two beauty breakthroughs including:
Dual Encapsulation Oil Technology – Dual Encapsulation Technology that infuses hair with two natural oils – one repairative, the other, style-enhancing. Both delivering nourishment exactly where hair needs it most. The tiny micro-spheres infuse hair with targeted, time-released nutrients to rapidly boost conditioning benefits.
Natural Silicone Alternative – Brassica Seed Oil’s excellent antioxidant profile results in a natural shine, smoothness and silky softness without the potential for buildup.
I specifically chose to use the Coconut & Moringa Oils Collection to help my curls with definition and to help fight frizz. But, there are more lines available to suit your hair needs like the Jamaican Black Castor & Murumuru Oils Collection, Dream Come True Collection and the Brassica Seed and Shea Oil Collection. Each of the collections are formulated with six multi-tasking oils that help nourish, condition, detangle and seal in moisture. You can select each one for specific treatment and conditioning boosts and to help refresh your hair which make Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture’s lines ideal for complete care and pampering or blending the lines for more personalized hair needs.
A few tips on how I keep my hair looking fresh and pretty. Keep in mind that these are my tips and you can taper them to accommodate your hair and hair type.
I only really wash my hair about once a week. Each person can decide to wash more if they decide, but since my hair is so dry, if I wash it more often – I tend to have a crazy head of hair full of frizz.
When shampooing, I usually concentrate my shampoo towards the roots and scalp and try to stay away from the length of my hair. If I feel like my length and ends need a little extra cleansing, I will use a conditioner and co-wash those sections. Or, I will use the shampoo but try to use one sparingly.
Conditioning or a great mask is a must. Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture’s Frizz Fighting Coconut & Moringa Oils Curl Conditioner is perfect for conditioning the hair and adding in moisture. Since our curls tend to dry out easily, this conditioner helps to soften and detangle my hair while restoring much needed moisture. I love that this product is thick enough to coat my hair nicely but still has enough slip to work through my hair, detangle with my fingers and leave my hair smooth, soft and moisturized.
After my shower I tend to use a variety of products that not only lock in the moisture into my hair, but help to define my curls and help with the frizz. The Curl Defining Milk (Coconut & Moringa Oils) helps to add that extra moisture, fight frizz and define my curls. It’s like a leave-in conditioner without the weight and helps to form my curls to give them a little extra bounce.
After applying the Curl Defining Milk, I add the Flyaway Curl Control Serum which helps to fight frizz, protect the hair and add shine. This serum smells delicious (as do the other products) and is a water-resistant serum that adds a protective barrier to help block humidity. One pump is more than enough for my whole head of hair. I apply to my ends and work my way up my shaft to my scalp to help protect my hair and help with the frizz.
When I’m looking for a little hold, I will add a light weight mousse or gel to help keep my curls defined and in place but most the time, that consists of my hair care routine and the extra pampering I do to treat my hair to some love. Since I only wash my hair once a week (2x at the most), after my 2nd or 3rd day of hair, I tend to add a refresher to help rejuvenate my curls if they are starting to fall flat. I have been using the Curl Refresher Mist to help reactivate my curls and redefine them as well as soften and eliminate the frizz that may have accumulated over the last few days. This curl refresher is a life saver because I do not need to really re-wet my hair as I would normally and it leaves my hair looking like it’s freshly washed.
Living in Hawaii can do major damage to my hair year round and the colder months, while they can take its toll… the warmer months can really dry my hair out just as bad. It’s important that I take the extra time and utilize great products to help keep my hair looking great. It’s no secret that I tend to wear my hair up and out of my face most of the time – if you’ve been a follower of my blog, then you would have seen countless photos of my hair in a bun. But, that also means that when I decide to wear my hair down, I need it to be on top of its game… looking fab, healthy and shiny. Since my hair is so long and curly, it tends to get a lot of attention and since all eyes are on it, I want it to look good. To keep my hair looking great, that means I need awesome products and a good but simple hair care routine I can keep up with.
While I use a plethora of different brands and products, I really have been enjoying using Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture’s Coconut & Moringa Oils Collection and it has been a great benefit to my hair the last month. Used in combination with some of my favorite brands and products, it has added additional luster to my hair making it look like I just stepped out of a salon. As I mentioned previously, the brand offers different collections to suit different hair types, so a little hair love, pampering and TLC is not difficult to obtain.

I’m so excited for the Spring season that has been gracing our islands here in Hawaii. It is not only a perfect time for soft April showers and beautiful flora and fauna, but I’m also stoked that the weather will not be as dry as it is in the winter and therefore, my hair will not be so dry and brittle as well. With the weather changing I try to incorporate new products into my hair care routine to help protect against the warmth of the sun as well as the stress that my body and hair can go through. I love to find new products on the market, especially when given the option to try something new in a travel size. Today I share with you the Jet Set Hair Trio from Pacifica Beauty which is a set of three hair products from the new Hair Healing Collection.
The Pacifica Beauty Jet Set Hair Trio Kale Collection ($19.00 – Shampoo & Conditioner 2.0 fl.oz. / 59 mL and Leave-On Conditioner 0.5 fl.oz. / 14mL) is available along with the entire Hair Healing Collection exclusively at Ulta Beauty. This fantastic collection of goodies includes three products from the Kale Collection to help with the stress and pollution protection of your hair as well as the detoxifying extracts for that goodness our hair needs.
This awesome collection is perfect for the “jet setter” and includes products that are 100% Vegan and Cruelty-free. Since everyday pollutants can ruin and/or damage your hair’s color, health and style, these products are formulated to help with those issues. You can “say goodbye to bad hair days forever”. No parabens, SLS, phthalates or animal ingredients are used in these products so they are perfect solutions for people like myself who have curly hair and want to not only protect their hair but keep their curls looking great too.
The Super Kale Juiced-Up Shampoo helps with the volume you crave while deeply purifying your hair for a clean, super healthy look. Kale and super fruits come together in this innovative formula designed to help protect your hair from damage and pollution.
The Super Kale Juiced-Up Conditioner gives your hair weightless hydration, volume and leaves your hair looking super healthy. Kale and super fruits come together in this innovative formula to help strengthen your hair and leaving your hair soft and silky.
The Hairvana Leave-On Detangling Conditioner feels so wonderful in the hair (and smells great too). It’s an innovative detangling cream that helps to support flexibility, balance, strength and a healthy shine. This product works well to help with flyaways and frizz and leaves your hair looking smoother without that funky build-up that some products can leave behind.
If you are looking to try out some new hair care products to prepare your locks for the Spring and Summer months, I think this little set will be perfect for you to try some of the new hair care from Pacifica Beauty. I’m quite impressed with the line up of products that they have in the New Hair Healing Collection and these three in the set are a great selection to try. Since I’m a Kale juice for breakfast every morning kind of gal, I love that these offer a super food that’s perfect for my hair. With all the damage from heat and color or just all around stress, you can’t go wrong with a little help.
You can get this collection or other hair healing products from Pacifica exclusively at Ulta. The collection includes a variety of awesome hair loving products and I absolutely can’t wait to get my hands on the Coconut Super Power line (since we all know I’m a coconut oil addict and coconut lover). I’m always impressed with what Pacifica has to offer and while most products work, some may not… I can honestly say that it is a brand I continue to enjoy and look forward to trying out new goodies from the line.
Have you tried any of these products from Pacifica before? What about you, do you have hair that could use a little Super Fruits and Veggies to help combat stress and damage? Comment below and let me know what you are looking forward to trying out from Pacifica Beauty.

Let’s face it, not everyone is blessed with curly hair. I’m really lucky in that I have coiled curls that grace my long luscious locks, but those that don’t have curls need to improvise some. Since my natural curls are coiled and there are days that I may want softer, larger barrel size curls, I turn to one of my favorite hair tool brands. I have a pretty nice collection of Nume goodies from the Lustrum Set, Classic Reverse Wand and the 25mm Classic Wand so it’s a hair tool line that I truly do enjoy. As I say, when you don’t have them yourself – improvise and Nume has the tools to help with that. Nume celebrates their 5 year anniversary (Happy Birthday Nume!) and with that I want to share with you one of my favorite hair tools and some fun discounts you can utilize to get in on some of this hair tool goodness for yourself.
If you are looking to change up your style some, I definitely suggest the classic wand. I have the 25mm which is a common barrel size and perfect for someone who is a beginner hair tool user or advanced. The Classic Wand has a 100% Tourmaline-infused ceramic coated barrel and utilizes an innovative clipless design for crease-free curls. Since I naturally have dry hair – it’s great to use a wand instead of a curling iron because the clip can cause creases and with dry hair, it literally can ruin all that work… so I prefer a wand vs. a curling iron. The curling wand has negative ion technology and heats up to 410°F. What I love the most is that with your purchase/order you also get a heat-resistant glove that helps with the curling process. I put emphasis on “heat resistant” because you can still burn your fingers, so use extreme caution still.
Since I have natural curls that tend to be really coiled and tight, I like to brush my hair out with my fingers to soften my natural curls. Using a Flat Iron can help straighten your natural curls prior to adding them back in with the curling wand. Since the Classic Wand has that tourmaline-infused ceramic coated barrel, when using it on your hair you are locking in shine and your curls will last longer. This type of curling wand is perfect for those beachy waves we all love to rock during the summer months or voluminous glam waves for that night out with the girls or a date. This wand is perfect for use on medium or long hair and since it heats up quickly, it makes the process of creating your perfect waves easy as pie.
To create the soft beachy waves I am sporting today – I finger combed my natural curls so that they were not so tight and then grabbed 1 inch sections of my hair. Starting at various lengths of my hair (some near the root, some near the bottom and the middle of my locks) I added the curl using the Nume 25mm Classic Wand. Once I completed my whole head of hair, I finger combed through my hair once again to pull out the curls so they were not so tight. Since I added the curls to different sections and lengths of my hair, it gave me much needed volume and created a fuller textured look. To set the curls, I added a shine spray and scrunched my hair with some Argan Oil. Since I have thin hair but my hair is long… I need to create more volume and add to the bulk of my hair so I also spray with a light leave-in conditioner and I’m good to go. If you want more curls then texture, you can always skip running your fingers through your hair and leave the curls intact and set with a setting or hair spray. Make sure prior to adding any heat to your hair that you use a heat protectant so that you are protecting your locks from damage.
Creating beautiful locks with curls for days is as easy as moving your arms above your head. It can take a little practice sometimes, but once you find a routine you enjoy – you will find that it is easier than you thought. Since my hair is just about past my butt, it can take me a while to get through my whole head of hair, but it’s all worth it in the end.
Like I mentioned previously, it is Nume’s 5th Anniversary! Because of this awesome celebration – Nume is offering great discounts for all of my readers and followers. If you are looking to add to your hair tool collection or to pick something up for the first time – now’s your chance to get some of these awesome tools at a discount. I’ve been buying Nume products now for as long as they have been a company and I love not only their quality but the products themselves, so I know you’ll enjoy them too.
So, do you have your eyes on any of these beauties? What set or wand or straightener are you looking at picking up for yourself? I can’t recommend them enough and as I said previously, while I do receive PR Samples I have purchased from Nume on many occasions. I plan to pick up a Straightener and a Titan 3 to add to my collection soon. Be sure to head on over to the site and click on the links above to utilize the coupon codes. The sale begins today and ends on Easter Sunday (March 27, 2016) so be sure to check it out in time to take advantage of the awesome deals.

When it comes to hair care – I try a lot of different products. I have hair that tends to be a bit finicky and definitely needs extra care. While I do have my favorites, I’m always interested in trying out new things and I especially love a good hair product that includes some of my favorite ingredients like Argan and Coconut oils. With curls for days and long tresses, I do what I can to keep my crazy hair at bay. Recently I was sent some goodies for my hair – the L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Collection and today I’m going to share my thoughts with all of you.
The L’Oreal Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Collection includes products that are perfect for dry hair – which just happens to be the type of hair I have. Since my hair is so long and because I live in a tropical climate, my locks tend to be drier than I would like – which means I need to compensate with hair products that will add extra moisture. The Extraordinary Oil line not only helps to rehydrate and restore my hair, but some of the products like the Extraordinary Oil Curls Re-nourish mask also help with my curly hair. I received 4 out of the 7 different products I seen on their website and I’ll break it down for you and share my thoughts on each I had the opportunity to try.
First, you have the L’Oreal Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Shampoo ($4.99 / 25.4 fl.oz. – 750mL). This shampoo is perfect for daily care to help dry and lifeless hair. It’s a lightweight shampoo that is non-greasy and when applied to the hair – it left my hair feeling really clean, but not dry. I don’t have very many lathering products since I try to use sulfate-free hair care, so I really worried that this shampoo would leave my hair stripped of its natural oils. It actually did really well with my hair and I literally noticed after the first wash that my hair was pretty shiny and soft.
The advanced formula of the Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Shampoo includes an oil complex that has oils + botanical extracts in oil to rapidly propel hydration to the fiber and seal the cuticle. With the Arginine-K Complex, this system penetrates the hair fiber from the root, to the core, to the tip for healthier feeling and looking hair. Once you use this product, your hair is just about instantly transformed to silkier, softer – more lustrous hair. I was not only amazed, but very impressed. I only wash my hair about one to two times a week so I worried that this product would leave my curls dry and my hair (and my scalp) seemed to like the product overall. Oh – did I mention it has a soft fragrance? I actually really enjoy the scent, it’s light – but smells really good… almost floral, though I do not think that is it. I believe it is a mix of the argan and coconut oil, but I haven’t been able to pinpoint it yet. I like that the fragrance is light because it doesn’t affect my allergies.
The L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Conditioner ($4.99 / 25.4 fl.oz. – 750mL) can be used for daily care to help with dry, lifeless hair. It’s lightweight and non-greasy just like the shampoo and includes the same oil complex as well. After just one wash, I noticed my hair definitely softer and smoother. I love the thickness of this conditioner. It is not too thick, but thick enough to coat my hair nicely but still offering a good amount of slip. This conditioner really is the perfect one for detangling my hair while in the shower, which I like to do.
Just like the shampoo – the conditioner claims to help rejuvenate the hair with weightless nutrition. The Extraordinary Oil system instantly transforms dry, lifeless strands into silkier, softer, more lustrous hair. With the Advanced Formula Oil Complex of oils and botanical extracts in the oil – this conditioner helps to rapidly propel hydration to the fiber and seals the cuticle. It also includes the Arginine K complex to help penetrate hair fiber from root, to core, to tip for healthier hair. After the first use of using this product, I was amazed at how much I enjoy it. It did well in moisturizing and hydrating my hair and left my hair very very soft.
I’m all about a great mask, especially one that is formulated to help my curls so I was intrigued and excited to try this one from L’Oreal. The L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Curls Re-Nourish Mask ($6.99 / 8.5 fl.oz. – 250 mL) is formulated to rehydrate, restore and reinfuse bounce into naturally curly hair. It’s a rinse-out treatment best suited for very dry and curly hair. This mask instantly penetrates the hair to quench and calm even very dry, curly hair with hydration and nutrition. The Re-Nourish mask is made with the Extraordinary Oil system to help defrizz the hair, and infuse curls with bounce.
The mask itself has a very light scent to it – like the other products in this line and is quite thick, though still manageable. It includes the Advanced Treatment Oil Complex (AMLA Extract) system with oils + botanical extracts in oil to penetrate the fiber to instantly replenish curls with nourishment and elasticity. After one use I noticed my hair was shinier, rehydrated and soft but also – my curls had a lot of bounce.
When it comes to masks, I can use a lot of it (just like conditioners) because my hair is nearly past my rear. I found that this product was thick enough to coat my strands, but also thin enough to be worked into my hair without using a lot of product as I normally would. It’s easy to use – simply apply this mask to your wet hair after shampooing. Massage through to the ends of your hair and leave in for 3-5 minutes before rinsing. This product has to be rinsed out. It is too thick and has too much oils in it to leave over night in my opinion… I tried it the first time I used it just to see and it left my scalp feeling kind of oily. I did like it when used as directed and at the price point, I think I may continue to purchase this product to keep on hand. It really helped to soften my dry ends leaving them looking healthy and smooth.
Lastly, the L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Lustrous Oil Serum ($6.99 / 3.4 fl.oz. – 100mL), is quite a great little product. As many of you know if you’ve been here reading my posts for a while, I really am a huge oil fan and use coconut and argan oil (to name a few) in my hair consistently and usually daily. I was so happy to try a hair serum with the oil complex the same as in the other products from this line that I have tried. This product claims to instantly add shine and a silky-touch to your hair and is lightweight and non-greasy. It’s a leave-in treatment that is perfect for dry and lifeless hair.
The Extraordinary Oil system instantly absorbs, transforming dry hair strand by strand for weightless silky shine. It includes the same system of oils + botanical extracts in oil to help rapidly propel hydration to the fiber and seals the cuticle. With oils like Chamomile, Coconut, Sunflower, Soja, Gardenia and Rose – this oil serum helps to add instant shine and a gorgeous, soft and silky touch. I apply this product as directed, after using the shampoo and conditioner I apply the serum throughout the lengths of my hair concentrating it on the ends. I love that this product can be used before a shampoo to help nourish and protect the hair and before styling to help control and discipline hair. But, most importantly for me it also works well as a finishing touch to any style or hair look for exquisite softness and lustrous shine.
The L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil line has been such a great asset in my hair care needs. I have used products from the L’Oreal Feria line (for hair coloring) and that is basically it – so I was not only impressed by my first use of the hair products from this line, but also with the quality considering the price point. Each of the products offered a light scent – almost floral, that made use quite pleasing and didn’t leave me nauseous as other hair products can do and I liked that it worked so well with my curly hair. Since I tend to have drier hair than usual, I love a product line that really replenishes my hair and keeps it looking great for longer periods of time, especially since I usually only wash 1-2 times a week. Since these products have oils that help to seal the cuticle and hydrate your natural hair fibers, I think they would make great products for those who color their hair consistently. I noticed that after using these products, my red didn’t fade as quickly and I didn’t have as much bleeding of color in my shower after a wash. These products have helped to keep my hair color lasting longer as well as keeping my hair looking great. Since all four products are infused with vitamins and antioxidants, my hair feels so soft and shiny and has felt this way after just one use.
Overall, I’m really liking them – loving the price, and after a month of using these, I look forward to repurchasing some of my favorites.
You can purchase these products and more at: http://www.lorealparisusa.com/ as well as your local drugstore, Target, Walmart or other stores where L’Oreal is sold.

When it comes to my hair, because it is long and often times unruly – I whole heartily believe that sometimes less is more. The less I fuss with it, sometimes the easier it is to maintain and take care of. After having my children I noticed that my hair lacked it’s natural luster and while it looks healthy most of the time – I do my best to hide my hair in an endless array of up-dos and buns to keep them from showing their true colors… literally. Having tried so many products under the sun when it comes to hair care, I was amazed to find a brand that I have not tried on my tresses before. The Living Proof Timeless Collection is a new hair care line that I have added to my hair regime to help bring back my hair’s natural shine and I want to share this new line with you.
The Living Proof Timeless Collection is only available at Ulta Beauty and consists of an array of products to help bring back the gorgeous in our natural hair. This line of products offers you the opportunity to try and combat the signs of aging hair with a collection of products that offer you a variety of benefits. Since having my children and as I near my 40s, I have noticed that my hair is literally aging before my eyes. These products not only offer much needed moisture to keep our hair looking shiny and gorgeous but they help with combating the changes in our aging hair as we get older.
This hair care line is great for hair – no matter your age. It offers you Sulfate-free, silicone-free and color safe formulas with Living Proof’s technology to help keep your hair in its absolute best condition.

Sulfate-free, silicone-free, and color safe. With a unique blend of amino acids, weightless emollients and proprietary technology – the Living Proof Timeless line literally transforms your hair to soft, visibly healthier hair. I really can’t stress enough how much I’ve been enjoying this line. While I’ve tried many hair products, this is my first time using anything from Living Proof and the Timeless Collection has offered my hair strength and shine all after the first use.
Some of the benefits include:

The Living Proof Timeless collection is powered by Fortifying Complex comprised of:

Ceramide-like lipids that keep the cuticle sealed and smooth to the touch
OFPMA + proteins which is a healthy hair molecule that controls the moisture flux and keeps the hair strong while repelling dirt and oil so hair stays cleaner, longer.
Skin care and hair care are so important to me. As I get older, aging gracefully is a must and that includes all the things that really add to your age itself – like your skin and your hair. Living Proof Timeless Collection offers a variety of things for my aging hair like volume, shine and an overall healthy look. I love that my hair feels stronger and I have less breakage as a result of these products. The life of my hair has been revived! Even with my grey hair sprouting all over my hair, I can feel confident and reassured that my hair is still loving life as much as I am.
After using this Living Proof Timeless line once, I noticed a difference in my hair. Of course, like with any product – with continued use, you will surely see results and your hair will love you too. I’m glad I was introduced to this line because I have noticed such a huge difference in such a short amount of time. Those that know me, know that I’m recognized almost immediately for my hair and this product really brought life back to a part of my body I’m known for. What about you? Could your hair use a little revamp and rewind for the look of timeless beauty?
The Living Proof Timeless collection is available only at Ulta Beauty stores nationwide as well as online. You can find Ulta Beauty on Facebook or Twitter and be sure to check out the site to find a location near you that sells the products. After one use, I was not only amazed at how my hair changed, but I think I found a new hair best friend.
This is a Sponsored Post in collaboration with Moroccanoil and Collectively.
I constantly get asked the following questions when it comes to my hair “What do you do with your hair? How does it grow so long? How does your hair look so healthy if you color it so often?” The fact of the matter is – great products, good hair care and taking care of my overall health have been the contributing factors. Since we are in the new year, I figured I would finally take a moment to explain to everyone what it is I do to care for my hair. I have always had long hair, for most of my life my hair has always been past my waist line and because it’s so curly, I tend to pull it back and out of my face pretty religiously. There are few products that work well for my hair and some methods may work better for me than others, but here is what I do to care for my hair and keep it healthy and long.
After having my twins, I noticed that my hair became brittle and overall lack luster. I realized then that I really needed to take care of my health and my body in order for parts of me to really benefit. During my pregnancies and after giving birth, I really lost all of the body and volume my hair used to have, my natural curls were literally a disarray and my hair quickly started to thin and have a lot of breakage. I realized quickly that I needed to really start taking care of myself as well as my hair to bring back what it was missing. The twins pregnancy was not only high risk, it also took a toll on my body. I lost over 65 lbs and it really started to show in how my hair was looking. I knew then I needed to really get on a good hair care routine to bring back some life into my long locks.
First of all, I started with drinking A LOT of water. I can drink a gallon of water each day if I’m not too busy running around and it has been an absolute part of my daily routine. When it comes to taking care of my health, I make sure this is a priority. Many don’t know this but by drinking your minimum amount of water intake each day you not only help your body, but your skin and even your hair looks shiny and pretty and in turn it will keep it healthy. Water is just the beginning – along with a good diet and great products, I was able to bring back some life to my hair.
Over the last 6 years or more, I have incorporated products from Moroccanoil into my hair care routine. These products have been an important part of not only adding shine and luster to my hair but keeping my frizz from my curls at bay. One of my favorites and a product I’ve used for many years is the Moroccanoil Treatment. This unique formula is rich in antioxidant argan oil that instantly absorbs into my hair to help enhance manageability, shine and offer long term conditioning without any funky residue. It’s lightweight and a little goes a long way, even with my full head of hair. I also notice that when I continue to nourish my hair with great products, my hair is not only healthy, without frizz and very pretty – but my curls have more bounce and my hair seems to grow quicker.
How do I treat my hair? Well – right after I get out of the shower, I immediately wrap my hair in a microfiber towel or a t-shirt and leave for about 10 minutes so that it has time to really remove a lot of the excess water. I remove the towel and take about a quarter sized amount of Moroccanoil Treatment and work through my hair starting with the ends and working my hands with the product through my hair shaft and ending at the scalp. I let the product sit and work its magic on my hair for a few minutes before I add in any additional products. The Moroccanoil Treatment is a lightweight oil that soaks into my hair quickly. It doesn’t weigh down my curls and leaves them looking healthy.
To help enhance my natural curls and give them a soft and flexible hold, I then apply the Moroccanoil Curl Defining Cream and/or the Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream. Each product can be used on their own or in combination with one another. When I’m looking to enhance my curls for soft tresses I will use the Moroccanoil Curl Defining Cream and when I want to really bring out my natural curls that are bouncy and have a tighter coil, I will use the Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream. Each of these products are light weight, work into my hair nicely and enhance my hair’s natural texture without leaving it crunchy or stiff.
Since I only wash my hair about two times a week, I refresh my hair and combat frizz by applying the Moroccanoil Pure Argan Oil in between washes. This Pure Argan Oil is wonderful for the hair but does double duty for the skin. I also use this product on its own through my hair after a shower if I’m not looking to add any additional product to my hair. Like the Moroccanoil Treatment, the Moroccanoil Pure Argan Oil is lightweight and feels wonderful in my hair. It leaves my hair shiny and silky but also makes my skin feel soft and smooth. My husband loves using this product as well for his body and his face.
The great thing about Moroccanoil is that they only source the highest quality argan oil originating from argan trees grown in Morocco. The argan oil used in all of the Moroccanoil hair and skin products are manufactured by a cold-press process. Moroccanoil continues to be the leader in the oil-infused hair and body product industry and these products are not only my favorites because of how they work for my hair, but also because of the outstanding quality I know to expect from the brand and their products. If you don’t already include Argan Oil into your beauty routine – whether for hair or skin or both, incorporating this oil will leave your hair shinier and healthier and your skin feeling smooth.
Since I have natural curls and have learned over the years on how to care for them, I don’t use heat on my hair often and when I do – I always ensure that I have my Moroccanoil Treatment to use for protection as well as to help with frizz. Also, when it comes to styling products, I don’t tend to use many setting sprays or gels and use my hair as natural as I can to keep it looking healthy. Everyone’s hair texture and hair type is different from others so adjusting the products you need for your hair is an individualized thing. I have been using some of these products from Moroccanoil for several years and after all this time, it’s a brand I consistently use to help keep my hair looking great. With proper hair care you can really bring back life to your locks.
I hope this little post of sharing with you some of my hair favorites and what I do consistently to care for my hair has helped to inspire you some. Moroccanoil offers a wide range of products for your hair care, hair styling and even for your skin and incorporating these products into my regimen is always a delight. While my routine for caring of my hair is simple, the products do make a huge difference. What about you? Have you tried Moroccanoil products before? If so, what are your thoughts on the brand and what they offer? Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a fabulous week!
