I have been using Hask Beauty hair care products off and on now for about two years and it’s one of my favorite hair product lines. Let’s face it, with my full head of very long hair I need products that are good and affordable since I can use a lot of it. One of my favorite lines from Hask Beauty is the Argan Oil line of products. Since I have been using this line consistently over the last two years off and on with some of my other favorite hair care products, today I’m going to share with you my thoughts and some information.
There are four different products available in the Hask Argan Oil line. Each product is not only affordable but also easy to get your hands on because you can find them at a variety of stores as well as online. I just love the look of the line’s packaging because the colors just pop and stand out and the products itself are really good.
Argan Oil Repairing Shampoo – This product is developed to help strengthen and restore your hair. It is free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol and artificial colors. It’s infused with argan oil and penetrates the hair shaft to offer your hair a gentle cleaning while it repairs damage and breakage. I love this shampoo. It is just the right texture for my hair allowing me to saturate the areas I want to get clean. It has a light lather, but not as much as you would get with traditional shampoos. My hair feels so soft and looks really shiny after using this product. I love that I can use it on my color treated hair without issue and it never leaves my hair feeling dry or rough. If I had to for any reason use this product on its own without conditioning, I like that my hair still feels moisturized and it helps with my frizz, keeping it at bay. I can’t say that it has necessarily repaired my hair, but I do notice I do not get as much breakage.
Argan Oil Repairing Conditioner – Like the Shampoo, this product helps to strengthen and restore. It is free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol and artificial colors. This conditioner helps to revive and restore the look of your hair. It’s infused with moisturizing argan oil and penetrates the hair shaft leaving your hair soft, while detangling your hair. It helps protect against damage and breakage and helps with frizz. I have tried MANY conditioners and this is one of my favorites. I wish that Hask made this size bottle larger since I use a lot of it. This product has some nice slip to it… which makes it easy to detangle my hair while wet in the shower and I can comb through my hair with my fingers with ease. My hair seems to give off that “aaaahhhh” feeling after my hair is rinsed of this product because it is always nicely moisturized after leaving my hair soft with minimal to no frizz and very shiny and silky. I love that I can use this on my color treated hair with minimal color bleed in the shower. One note however is when I use this product since it makes my hair so silky and soft, my curls tend to be more waves than curly – it really softens my hair a lot.
Argan Oil Repairing Deep Conditioner – This is one of my favorite products for a deep conditioner. Just like it’s counter parts, it is free of all the yucky stuff and helps to strengthen and repair. This treatment comes in a packet which makes it easy for travel or keeping for taking to the gym or throwing in a spare dress bag. It helps to restore and smooth dry, damaged and chemically treated hair… especially those that are over processed. With Argan oil unique to Morocco, this product penetrates the hair and split ends to help leave your most damaged hair soft and moisturized with added moisture. I love this product and use it VERY often because it is so affordable and my hair drinks it up. For some it may not be a thick enough deep conditioner for their hair because my hair just drinks it up that sometimes I feel I need the whole pouch on my head at a time. Other days I can split the pouch in half and save for another treatment. I have slept in this mask with towel over my head and it seems to work nicely. If my hair is really dry for any reason (like winter months) I love this mask because I can use it each time I wash my hair without worrying about my scalp or hair getting too oily but still have my hair very moisturized, soft and silky. This deep conditioner has nice slip to it and works through my hair great and I can detangle with it on my hair as well.
Argan Oil Shine Treatment – I have also enjoyed this hair treatment. I put it on my hair when it is damp or even on days when wet or dry to help combat frizz and lock in moisture. The little vial lasts a really long time and a little goes a long way. Again, strengthens and restores like the other products and free from all the junk stuff we don’t want in our hair. This oil is lightweight which I love because I can use it on the crown and near the roots of my hair without worrying that it will weigh my hair down or get too oily too fast. It’s alcohol free and absorbs so quickly into my hair. My hair is frizz free, soft and so manageable when I’m using this product. Since Argan Oil is rich in essential fatty acids, this product penetrates the hair to restore shine and leaves my hair feeling silky smooth and shiny.
I can’t stress enough how much I enjoy this line. Again, it’s affordable which is a huge plus but offers great care for your hair at a fraction of the price you would get from salon brands. I also love that I can find it at my local stores here so repurchasing this product over the last two years has been a breeze. I love the smell of each of the products in this line… a sweet but not over powering scent is left on my hair – hubby loves it too. My hair always feels soft, moisturized and looks so shiny and silky when I use this line and I really like it. If I had to make one little notation, it is that I find my curls tend to be on the softer side – more wavy than coiled when I use these particular products, which is not necessarily a bad thing but I figured I would mention it. And, sometimes my hair is so soft, that a standard pony tail holder / rubberband will not stay in my hair with two twists, it will fall right out – which is not the norm for me. I love the line nonetheless and definitely suggest it. If I had to make one suggestion to Hask, it would be to ‘Please come out with a Coconut Oil line… I would absolutely love it and my hair would too.’

Let’s face it – when it comes to curls I’m always looking for the products that work well for me and my full head of hair. It’s not an easy task and I have tried more than my fair share of products – enough to last a lifetime. Dippity-Do Girls With Curls products are a throwback to the days of carefree curls. I have heard of Dippity-Do products before, but have never seen or heard of their Girls With Curls line so I was excited to give it a go and see how it would work for me. After using these products for some time now, I’m finally comfortable to share my thoughts with you about how they worked for me.
After years of flat-ironing my hair, I have lost a lot of curl definition and I’m constantly working on redeveloping my curl pattern. Because of this, I’m always on the hunt for a product or products that will not only help to define my curls, but also give them added moisture, shine and help to combat frizz. I have used many products in the World to help with this and many are quite costly, so I was very intrigued to find out that the Dippity-Do Girls with Curls line was so darn affordable. I was given the opportunity to test out the entire line and today I’m going to discuss each product in detail and how it worked for me.
Curl Shampoo – I was beyond impressed with this shampoo. I have been using Sulfate Free shampoos for a while now and many of them do not offer the lather I miss with shampoos that have it. This shampoo lathered up great and left my hair feeling clean. What I enjoyed the most was that my hair didn’t feel dry or without moisture as other shampoos have done in the past. It left my hair feeling great and I LOVE that it has coconut oil in it which is something I use in my hair consistently already.
Curl Conditioner – This conditioner was not as thick as I had expected, which is a little different than what I am used to. I like my conditioners to have more slip to them because I tend to finger comb and detangle my hair while I have conditioner in and this was not as easy to detangle my hair with. While it did the job, I feel like I could use something with a little more oomph… but overall – it does the job and I do like it. You can’t beat the price point and it didn’t leave my hair feeling dry. Each strand still felt moisturized, looked shiny after dry and my curls were soft and manageable.
Deep Treatment – When it comes to a deep treatment, I expect something that will really go above and beyond the conditioner from the same line but I felt like this one is more of a daily conditioner for me. In order for my curls to be moisturized well without soaking it all up – I need something with a little more and felt like this was nice to use, nourished my hair – but left my hair wanting more. I have finicky hair so I would chuck it up as my hair being difficult – but I would love to see something that is much thicker and richer to be a deep treatment. Again, you can’t beat the price point, so I definitely think it did the job for the most part – my hair just wants more and after a few uses, I used the entire bottle because my hair drinks that stuff up. Even as a long period mask – I felt that it still didn’t offer my hair as much quench as I would have liked. Considering the price point though – again, still great in a pinch.
Curl Defining Cream – This particular product didn’t necessarily define my curls when used on it’s own after washing my hair, but I felt like my hair needed this product when used in combination with the Gelee to help my curls. I love to run my fingers through my hair so if you know anything about me, I don’t use gel or mousse or products that hold my hair in place for this reason. Because of this, I really loved the Curl Defining Cream. It made my hair feel ultra soft and smooth and when used before the Gelee, my hair was still soft and smooth – without feeling crunchy, sticky or rough like it can be. I was able to run my fingers through my hair with the Gelee, which would normally be difficult. Again, it didn’t quite define my curls – but does work to make them touch-ably soft.
Gelee – Ah, this product is one of my favorites out of the whole line. It left my curls defined with nice hold but still bouncy and move-able. If I used it on its own (without the Curl Defining Cream) I did notice my hair would frizz up a little faster than normal and would feel a little dry. But, used in combination with the Curl Defining Cream, my curls were very pretty, bouncy, soft to the touch and defined nicely. This will definitely be my go-to moving forward because I love that my hair or neck and scalp do not feel sticky with use and I haven’t broken out at all while using this product. I also love that this product gives my hair a little extra volume. I take a little of the product and scrunch through my roots for a fuller hair look – I love it!
Curl Booster Spray – I specifically used this product on second day hair most of the time, though I thought it worked okay to finish up my hair style after applying the Gelee. Just a little spritz on the ends of my hair helped to lock in the moisture which I tend to lose the quickest in that area. I didn’t really use this product to boost my curls unless I was on my second or third day without washing – I would spritz at the root of my hair for a little added lift (since that is the part that tends the mash the quickest) and again at the tips in case the ends of my hair went flat from pulling my hair up in a bun. I wear my hair up A LOT because it is so long so I used this mostly to revive my curls. I didn’t notice any “curl boosting” on the first day when used.
I’m still on a journey of redefining my curl patterns on my hair after years of heat damage and constant straightening. It’s a consistent battle because my hair is long and grows so fast, I literally cut it every 3 months to keep up with the growth and to keep my hair from getting too heavy and weighed down. When it comes to curly hair products, I have tried most if not all of them and have spent a great deal of money on this mop I call hair. lol I miss my tight Keri Russell curls that I used to have… but I’m slowly working my way back to it again. With products like these from Dippity-Do, I can see a great curly haired future in sight.
Each product from the Girls With Curls line costs just $6.99 – come on now, major steal. While some of the products worked better for me than others, I can’t help but feel obligated to want to continue using them all because the price point really is nice. I know I’ll be keeping the Gelee in my hair routine, as well as the Shampoo and Curl Defining Cream. The rest all worked reasonably well – but I’m not quite convinced I still need them all, though that won’t stop me from repurchasing just so I can use them all together. What I really enjoy about this line is that while it’s drugstore priced, it really doesn’t have crappy results. My hair seems to feel fuller and have more body – which I love since my hair is on the thinner side. Overall – I would definitely suggest this brand and hair care line – I was beyond impressed and didn’t expect it to work as well as it did. These pink bottles are definitely going to be in my curly hair future.
What about you? What kind of hair do you have – curly, straight, wavy? What are your favorite curly hair products if you have any?

When it comes to Fall and my new Fall hair styles, I tend to take my hair to an extreme red or purple shade to embrace the season I love so much. Because of this, my curly locks not only deal with the change in season but also the damage from processing and color. With so many products on the market, I find that I pull out the ones that are silicone free and infused with oil to keep my hair moisturized, shiny and gorgeous. Recently I had the opportunity to try Nexxus Oil Infinite Hair Care System. I have not tried this line before, so I’m excited to share my thoughts with you on these line.
The Nexxus Oil Infusing System is perfect for dull hair. It helps you regain control of unmanageable hair with an oil infusing system. This line is specifically formulated using concentrated, 100% pure Elastin Protein and natural Babassu and Marula Oils. The Oil Infinite regimen works to renew hair texture and restore smooth, sleek, fluid beauty. What makes this particular line so great is that it is available at Walmart – hello great price point!
I have never tried anything from Nexxus before though I was very familiar with the name prior to using these products. I have heard so many great things so I had high expectations that this line would benefit my hair. My thought was that since it included Marula Oil, it should be great for my frizz since that is something I need to combat often during the Fall and Winter months. After the first use, I immediately fell in love with how silky smooth my hair felt and how shiny it looked.
Since my hair tends to have a mind of its own, I choose my hair care products wisely. It’s important to me to protect my curls so a hair care line that is silicone free is a must. The Nexxus Oil Infinite Rebalancing Shampoo helped to nourish my hair after I had colored it a few short weeks ago. I love that the shampoo is fairly thick and creamy but applies easily without making my hair feel too weighed down. It lathers nicely which I do like and left my hair feeling really clean – which is a plus. After using this product the last few weeks, I enjoy the fact that my hair does not feel stripped or dry. In fact, after the first use, my hair felt silky smooth and I noticed my frizz wasn’t as bad as it could be. The shampoo is said to rebalance your hair by rebuilding broken bonds and replenishing nutrients within, leaving your hair responsive. Now – I don’t know much about the scientific aspect of hair, but I can tell you that for a shampoo, I felt like my hair was not only cleansed but soft and I love it.
“The Nexxus Oil Infinite Rebalancing Shampoo helped to nourish my hair after I had colored it a few short weeks ago.”
The Nexxus Oil Infinite Conditioner has a similar texture to the shampoo – thick, white and creamy… but smooths onto the hair nicely and easily. This product is great for really bringing out the shine of my natural hair and allowing my color to be vibrant and bold. The Oil Infinite Restoring Conditioner is infused with precious oils to seal in rich luminosity. The conditioner leaves my hair smelling great, feeling soft and I love that the natural high and low lights in my hair after coloring are vibrant.
Last from this line is the Nexxus Oil Infinite Nourishing Hair Oil. This is my favorite product from the line and something I use consistently to help with frizz, taming my crazy mane and keeping my hair silky, soft and manageable. This hair oil smells absolutely divine. This hair oil has a sweet scent – reminds me of sugar cookies. It leaves my hair smelling great and looking even better. The oil is not too thick and spreads evenly through the hair. One pump of the oil in the palm of my hand is more than enough to cover the length and body of my hair, while concentrating the oil more on my ends. Infused with a rich 6 oil blend including Amazonian Babassu Oil which has been used for generations as a rich emollient, and African Marula Oil renowned for its healing properties. This oil infusion encapsulates hair, nourishes deep within and replenishes the lipid layer on the surface for restored natural resilience. I absolutely love this oil because it doesn’t leave my hair feeling greasy or my scalp feeling oily and my hair soaks it up quickly because it loves it so much. While I do enjoy all of the products in this line, the Nourishing Hair Oil is my favorite.
If you are not a natural red head or like to color your hair hues of burgundy, red or purple like I do – you may notice that sometimes your hair may look a bit dull after several washes. After using the Nexxus Oil Infinite Hair Care line, I noticed that my color remained vibrant and bold – which I love and my scalp did not feel the drying effects that it normally does after a color. I am very impressed with this line, especially since my hair can be such a challenge at times. It works, gets the job done and leaves my hair feeling so smooth and soft. After using these products for a few weeks, I can definitely say I love the way my hair feels and looks after using these products exclusively for testing. Having not tried the brand prior to this, I really enjoyed it and I think I will continue to purchase it. Did I mention that this line is reasonably priced considering the brand? Yes – I think I’ll surely be using these more in the future.

It’s been over a year since I decided I would try to wear my hair much more natural so I haven’t used any heat on my hair since. Because of this – I am excited to show you my straight locks for the Fall season. But, as many who have naturally curly hair like I do know, it is not easy to go from super curly to straight without having a few challenges. With curly hair going straight, you may experience frizzing, dryness and in my case – when I straighten my hair, I want my style to last at least 3 days before having to wash since it takes me almost two hours to create this perfection. Here are some tips and what I do to keep my hair style looking fresh and great.
Since I haven’t added heat to my hair in over a year and recently just cut and had my hair layered, I made sure to straighten my hair the day after I washed it. This way some of my natural oils in my hair were able to develop and help to protect my hair in the straightening process. I added a heat protectant spray to my hair to help protect from damage while my Ultra CHI Tropical Splash 1″ Flat Iron heated up. This light weight heating tool heats up quickly – up to 392 degrees Fahrenheit. While the heat is not adjustable, it is the perfect temperature to flatten and straighten my curls without burning my locks. When the iron has reached the full temperature, I then start flat ironing my hair – each strand about an inch in size. The iron adds moisture and shine and penetrates the hair from the inside out so you reduce frizz and static electricity. This is perfect for me and my curly hair gals as the last thing we want is the dreaded FRIZZ.
Even after a lengthy trim, my hair is still fairly long, so it usually takes me about an hour to go through the strands and straighten completely. Once that is done, I can leave my hair as is – but I like to add some coconut oil to help with the fly-aways, frizz and to help add some much needed moisture back into my locks. To finish this very easy hairstyle, I spray my hair from mid length to the ends with CHI’s Dry Conditioner to help add extra shine and luster to my hair and leaving my hair soft and manageable. This spray will help to keep my hair soft, easy to work with and even assist in extending the style for a few days until my next wash. CHI’s Dry Conditioner is a waterless conditional spray that helps to make hair manageable in between shampoos.
If I am to skip washing my hair for a couple of days, I’ll also use the CHI Dry Shampoo to help absorb excess oils and keep my hair looking refreshed between my next wash. This Dry Shampoo from CHI smells great, works well and I love the waterless formula that helps extend the hair I worked so hard to create.
To add a little bit of texture or volume to the crown of my style, I will use the CHI Texturizing Spray at the roots to help add some volume. This spray is lightweight and has great hold so it’s perfect for those days when you are looking to add a little vavavoom to your hair. I especially enjoy this on the 2nd or 3rd day I have my hair straight to allow me to still give my crown some volume without weighting down my hair.
Once I do decide to wash my hair – CHI offers a variety of products that will also work well to keep my curly hair at bay as well as offer definition to my curls. The CHI Styling Cream Gel is is Paraben free and helps to create sleek, smooth styles with a gel that is workable without flaking. You get incredible shine and control and it keeps my curls soft and defined.
The CHI Reworkable Taffy is a go-to when I want my curls to to look defined and my flyaways controlled. It’s a non-sticky taffy that has impressive style memory to create reworkable styles that have texture. It’s perfect for curly hair and a little goes a long way. I use this product mostly on the tips of my hair to keep my curls in place and from frizzing. Finishing off my curly hair look with the CHI Finishing Pomade which adds shine and a light hold. It gives your look a polished shine and leaves your curls looking frizz free and your hair ends controlled and gorgeous.
At the end of the day – my hair styles (no matter the season) are easy and manageable to allow me to go about my time without hassle. The CHI Styling Line Extension has products that have been useful for my hair whether I decide to rock it straight or curly and they work well for any season. Each product in the Styling Line Extension is enriched with silk and CHI Ceramic Compound which works hand in hand to achieve maximum shine and resist thermal damage. The silk instantaneously works to provide your hair a layer of protection while steal leaving your hair looking fab and enhancing shine. The weightless formulas are perfect to keep your favorite style in place without losing volume and each product offers a zesty, fresh-smelling fragrance with lavender and jasmine that leave your hair feeling replenished and ready to go. Using CHI Styling Line Extenstion products with thermal styling tools help to seal the hair cuticle and secure the proteins in each strand of hair to increase strength and ensure protection for your styling needs. I have been able to keep my hair straight for three days before washing due to the assistance of these products and even with my curly hair – I have enjoyed my style.
Have you tried any of the CHI Styling Line Extension products or the Ultra CHI Tropical Splash 1″ Iron? How could you incorporate these tools into your Fall hair style routine? Do you wait till the colder months like me to add heat to your hair too? Comment below and tell me, share your thoughts and tips too.

Nothing says “Showstopper” like luxurious packaging and I was immediately floored and swooning over the gorgeous bottles from SHOW Beauty. A few months ago, I seen a photo of this brand online and fell in love with the packaging so when I was contacted and asked if I would try these products, I couldn’t resist.
Show Beauty is a new indulgent and luxurious hair styling and finishing collection that embodies decadent glamour. Their products deliver volumizing and thickening benefits with innovative, natural ingredients that treat and improve the condition of the hair. These products are packaged in gorgeous luxe bottles that are truly breathtaking and I am glad I was able to try out a few of the products from their line.
The Pure Treatment Oil ($78 USD – 2 fl.oz.) is a rejuvenating elixir that restores your hair’s lustre and shine, leaving it strengthened, deeply nourished and infinitely desirable. This oil is a leave-in multi-use elixir that is light weight and doesn’t weigh my curls down, which I love. It is anti-oxidant and nutrient-rich formula that leaves your hair fiber renewed. This product has been referred to as liquid gold by beauty experts as Argan Oil penetrates the cuticle to strengthen and enhance the elasticity of the hair. I have been using this product for several weeks on my freshly washed hair, both on it’s own or with my personal mixture of hair oils and I love it. The ends of my hair feel soft and look great and my hair has a wonderful shine. You can use this product daily, but since I do not wash my hair each day, I use it about once to two times a week. You can also use as an intensive treatment by applying the oil to dry hair and combing through. Wrap your hair in a warm towel for about 10 minutes and then wash. I also use a little of this product on my dry hair to help with fly-aways and to add a little more shine if I feel my hair is looking dull. The oils included in this treatment are Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil and Coffee Seed Oil.
The Decadence Hair Fragrance ($85 USD – 1 fl.oz.) is a lush rose water combined with the lightest notes of coconut milk, caramel and almond butter, with a background of Madagascan vanilla, sensual patchouli and soft white musk. This product can be sprayed lightly onto your hair for a fragrance that is perfect for that date night or to just add a little pep in your step. I am not a huge fan of patchouli scents, so I was not sure how I would enjoy this fragrance. A light spritz of this product will go a long way and the scent can last quite a while. I was pretty amazed that the patchouli was not as prominent in the fragrance it can overpower many other notes. I liked it and enjoy using it on my hair on those days I’m using a sweet fragrant perfume as they work well together. One notation however, do not spray this on wet hair – it is meant for dry hair only. I made the mistake of spraying it on my hair before it was fully dry and it gave off a very funky scent – like wet leather. Used as directed on dry hair, it smells quite nice.
The Premier Finishing Spray ($47 USD – 7.9 oz / 224g) is an extravagant finishing spray that delivers a firm, weightless and build-able hold that helps maintain a flawless look day and night. This patented polymer memory system keeps hair in place while providing a natural, flexible and brush-able hold. It has Pro-Vitamin B which repairs the damage from chemical treatments and coloring, while Litchiderm lychee extract, Argan oil and wheat protein replenish, moisturize and repair the hair’s natural texture. I find that this spray is best used when 6 inches from the hair to get that desired hold and I have been loving it when I wear my hair down – as it allows my hair to still be bouncy and curly while giving it hold that is still touch-ably soft. It’s important to me that sprays I use do not leave my hair crunchy and this leaves my hair awesome. It does have perfume like scent that reminds me some of the hair fragrance, but it lighter and fades away quickly.
These products are definitely luxurious with a pretty hefty price tag. I think the concept is great and I certainly love the packaging. After finishing up the hair fragrance and hair treatment oil, I know I will be repurposing the bottles for other products as they display so wonderfully with the rest of my beauty essentials. I’m not sure if I would repurchase these items because they are just not in my budget at the moment and while they are beautiful and they work as they say – I’m not sure that they would warrant me to buy them once I finish these up. However, I do really like how they work, love the fragrances and I think should I have an income that allows me to buy these again, I would probably do it in a heartbeat.
You can purchase these products and more from SHOW Beauty at your local Sephora or Sephora.com

I’m a huge supporter of anything made in the USA and even more so when it is something that my husband likes to use and finds beneficial for his grooming. The Gentlemen’s Beard Oil and Conditioner is a new product to our household and something that my husband has been testing out over the last month. This product is easy to use and is formulated with key ingredients that helps to reduce beard itch that can come with a brand new beard or one that can be itchy because your skin is dry. It eliminates irritation and flakes.
After using this product, my husband stated that it was very easy to use. You can either dampen your beard, or apply dry but he prefers to apply the product right out of the shower (since he shaves and trims his beard in the shower). With just a few drops (dropper is included) you simply rub the oil into your beard and you’re done – simple! What my husband enjoys about this product is that it is unscented. I have had him include Argan Oil in his skin regimen and the scent can sometimes be overpowering for him so since this beard oil is scentless, it really is easy for him to use and enjoy.
The company states that you can use this to treat split ends on your beard – and they do happen for men. Split ends can come naturally or occur after a shave so using this oil will help mend and condition the beard to help with that problem. The bottle lasts a few months depending on how long your beard is and that is great since you will be saving some money easily with not only the cost but amount of product. Retailing for $39.99 (on sale right now for $19.97) you get a good amount of product for your money.
Organic Helianthus anuus (sunflower) seed oil, Organic Argania spinosa (Argan) seed oil, Organic Oenothera biennis (Evening primrose) seed oil, Organic Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, Tocopherols (vitamin E).
So – I told you what my husband thinks… how about my thoughts. I think this is a pretty nice product. I love that when my husband kisses or we rub faces that his beard doesn’t have that scruffy feeling any longer and it doesn’t feel rough on my sensitive skin. It’s nice, soft and feels smooth. I think overall this is a product worth trying for sure.

Over the last year I have been taking Hair La Vie from La Muse. While I do not take it consistently, I probably have taken a total of 4 bottles over the course of the last 8 months or so, I have tried to incorporate into my daily supplements. This product is easy to swallow since it comes in a capsule that makes taking it simple and I take two capsules a day – one in the morning and one in the evening. The pill is rather large, but swallowing it has never been an issue for me. With ingredients like Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, Biotin and Folic Acid (to name a few), Hair La Vie offers a wide variety of beneficial ingredients to help promote longer, fuller hair with faster results. My hair naturally grows quickly, so I do not necessarily notice much growth with this product, but I do notice how strong and full my hair has become over the last several months.
Hair La Vie is formulated to be an all-natural product, with clinically proven ingredients. It helps to repair and stimulate your hair’s growth from the inside out and leaves you with longer, fuller hair that grows faster than ever before. This product is perfect for hair that has been cut too short, is damaged (like mine is from all the bleaching) and thinning or balding (which I have been experiencing from past pregnancies). My hair not only looks and feels fuller and healthy but I love that I’m not pulling my hair out of the shower drain because I’ve noticed a huge decrease in shedding.
- 20 all-natural, clinically proven ingredients
- 1370mg proprietary active ingredient blend (highest on the market)
- 5000mcg biotin (most competitors have 2500 or lower)
- No synthetic fillers, binders, or additives
Last week I chopped off about 6 inches from my hair to allow for it to be healthy again and my curls to be revived. After taking Hair La Vie the last month, I noticed that my hair is looking fuller once again and areas where my hair was thinning after pregnancy now look fuller. While my hair grows rather quickly – I chop off about 6 inches every 4 months and it grows almost as fast, I noticed that over the years my hair shed a lot and my locks were not as thick as they once were due to pregnancy, age and just overall health and weather. With the assistance of Hair La Vie, my locks are now stronger, have more bounce and are thicker and healthy looking. I even noticed that my hair is much shinier than before. My biggest improvement is the growth along the hair line. Near my hair line by my temples of my head, I was experiencing receding after having my twins. Thinning and receding were discussed in previous posts and you could noticeably see that there was a bald spot. Look at the photo below… do you see a bald spot? My hair line is full and filled in and where I had noticeable receding over the years is now but a memory – THANK YOU HAIR LA VIE. This is the ONLY product that I have used that has filled in my hair line completely – after only 2 months of consistent use. I noticed after the first month that my receding hair line was less visible and now two months after the constant use of Hair La Vie, I don’t even notice the bald spots and you wouldn’t either.
Hair La Vie Revitalizing Hair Blend is affordable. I have tried different supplements that can retail for quite a hefty cost but that is not the case as a 30 day supply is just $39 and they offer discounts if you buy more than one. Since I’ve noticed such a huge improvement in my hair, I will definitely continue using Hair La Vie to keep my hair looking and feeling healthy and to encourage healthy growth and strong locks. I hope I can continue to keep Hair La Vie in my beauty regimen to promote healthy hair in my life. Again, I have tried many products as well as taking regular Biotin, but Hair La Vie is my absolutely favorite.

I naturally have very curly hair and sometimes tight curls like my hair can have are difficult to style or use a different way other than the norm. I also have really long hair so styling my hair with tools can be painful on my arms and often times I decide to give up midway through the process of trying to style my locks. I love trying products that offer great results and recently I have been using the T3 Twirl 360 Curling Iron and giving my hair a little vavavoom!
I was immediately wowed by the packaging of this unit and seeing as how I am in love with anything gold or rose gold, once I set my sights on this beauty, I immediately was in love. This styling iron features gorgeous accents that make anyone feel like they are holding something luxurious in their hands. This one-of-a-kind gyroscopic styling iron features patent-pending motion-sensing technology and an auto-rotating barrel to create gorgeous curls and waves with the simple turn of your wrist. I think it is absolutely genius that the Twirl 360 senses the movement of your hand and automatically rotates in the direction you desire and at the same time forming polished, beautiful curls every single time. Curling my hair is so simple with this tool.
With a 1.25″ barrel, you easily get voluminous curls for any length your hair may be. As I mentioned previously, my hair is fairly long and while it took a little finesse and a little practice, I was able to achieve gorgeous barreled curls that are very different from my normal tight curls that I have naturally. The barrel heats up quickly you have up to 5 heat settings (260-410 degrees F). The T3 Twirl 360 also has Digital Singlepass Technology which constantly measures and adjusts the temperature across the entire barrel for an even, consistent heat.
It took me a little while to get used to the speed settings of the tool, but I am happy and glad that it has 2 speed settings – slower speed for beginners or shorter hair and faster speed for experts or longer hair. Once I had the opportunity to use it a few times, I was able to get used to the speed for my hair length and creating my waves was effortless and easy. It is amazing that I can curl my entire head of hair in half the time I would with a traditional curling iron or wand. The wide, curved grip makes it easy to locate and comfortable to use from any direction. The tourmaline & ceramic barrel helps to create a shiny, smooth finish that makes my hair look like I just stepped onto the runway or out of a salon.
Using this styling iron is simple – with the Go Button, just press and turn your wrist to activate the gyroscopic technology and you are on your way to gorgeous curls.
“Gyroscopic Technology – Used in aviation, space exploration and hi-tech electronic devices for its sensitivity and precision, gyroscopic technology detects motion and triggers automatic barrel movement by the simple twist of your wrist, creating easy, flawless curls every time.”
And, I love a product that helps to combat frizz. The infrared energy from the Tourmaline gemstone fights frizz and seals the hair cuticle while digital SinglePass Technology ensures fast heat up and consistent heat delivery along the barrel. I have tried automatic curling irons before, but this one – definitely wowed me consistently.
Since my hair is naturally very curly, I took the T3 Twirl 360 Curling Iron used it on each strand to first soften my natural curls, adding shine to my hair and eliminating the frizz while kind of straightening my natural curls out. Then I went back with the curling iron to create large barrel curls that are soft and add volume to my long hair. The end result is what you see above.
The T3 Twirl 360 Curling Iron can be purchased at Sephora for $230 (retail). The product itself has gorgeous packaging as I stated before and I found that the learning curve and overall use of this product was easy even with the challenges I originally had with my long hair. If you have shorter hair than mine, this would be a great addition to your hair styling arsenal, creating gorgeous curls or volume with ease.

Argan Oil is such an important part of my skin care regimen. Used with my coconut oil, Argan Oil helps to keep my skin hydrated and soft. I have used many types of Argan Oil products in the past and continue to have my favorite brands but I’m always excited and happy to try new brands and Jaowying Beauty is no exception. Recently I have been using the Jaowying Beauty Organic Argan Oil in my beauty routine. This product is multi-purpose in that it can be used for the hair, face, skin and nails. I have been using this product daily to help moisturize my face and my cuticles and have been enjoying it quite a bit.
Jaowying Beauty Argan Oil comes in a 4 fl.oz bottle with a dropper which makes it easy to use and dispense. Retailing for just $19.95 you receive a lot of product for the price point and I love that this Argan Oil is not diluted as it is 100% pure and organic. Bottled in the United States, Jaowying Beauty Argan Oil is cruelty free and certified organic using virgin cold-pressed argan oil (Argania Spinosa).
This oil is colored the same as other oils I have used. It looks amber in color and has the normal argan oil scent. It is free of artificial fragrances and while I’m not a fan of the scent of argan oil, I find that this one is not strong which makes it tolerable for me to use. Since I have sensitive and dry skin, I use this oil to hydrate and moisturize my skin and love how my skin feels the next day. My face is left soft, glowing and moisturized. I have used this product in my hair and on my scalp and it also moisturizes well like other argan oils I have tried before.
I’m impressed with the size of the bottle for the price. You can’t beat the price with this particular product because a 4 oz bottle will literally last me a few months, versus a month with the standard argan oil size you can purchase. My husband also uses this product after he shaves and while we don’t use it to massage often, we do pull it out when we want to get a nice deep tissue massage. One of my favorite treatments of argan oil is pimples or acne treatment. I don’t get breakouts often but when I do they can definitely take charge of my face and argan oil along side my coconut oil help to treat the acne, heal and moisturize the areas so that those pesky pimples are not around for long.
This particular brand of oil absorbs very quickly, which I love. I don’t have to worry about waiting for it to soak into my skin during the day if I decide I want to moisturize with oil. While they say it is fragrance free, I can still smell the argan scent, but I’m sensitive to smell. I’m really enjoying this product and I definitely think I’ll continue to use it in my skin care routine.
