Angel Hair

A while ago I posted this haul where I showed a bunch of things I picked up from Victoria’s Secret. Today I’ll be posting a review on the Shampoo and Conditioner that I picked up.

This stuff is amazing. I absolutely adore it. First it’s a great deal, $12 ea or $24 for 3. Second it smells amazing. I can’t really place where the smell is from, but both I and my husband like it. Well he likes it on me, it’s too girly smelling for him to use. Bonus the smell stays in my hair after it dries. Seriously that never happens with me. Usually it just washes away and that’s it.
Lastly it makes my hair look amazing:

That first picture I swear my hair is just air dried. My dad also has those big Victoria’s Secret curls when he leaves his hair to air dry. Yes I said my Dad, his hair is also longer than mine. Way longer.

The other two photo’s are second day hair with a bit of the Victoria’s Secret Dry Shampoo brushed through. For some reason this always makes my hair so much straighter and I’m always a little sad because I miss the curls from the day before. I kinda want to try the Soft & Tousled Wave Enhancing Spray to see if that helps. The last photo is a bit frizzy because of wind. I remember we had a terrible time with it being windy that day.

I really recommend Victoria’s Secret line of hair care. I’m actually surprised at how much I adore Victoria’s Secret’s beauty products. So far they’re my favorite I’ve ever used, and I’ve used Ojon, Ouidad, Paul Mitchell, and various BedHead shampoo’s and conditioners in just this past year.

Have you tried this line? What do you think? Any products I simply must try?

 

New Hairs

Remember when i said i was going to do this? Well I did it, and I adore it. And this is how it looked after the blow dry and style.

Please excuse my expression it was about 11 pm when these were taken.
I really do love it, I was just very very tired.

She used all Chi products on my hair right down to the Flat Iron, except for the Paul Mitchell skinny serum. I’ve never used Chi before, but if I get back into straightening my hair everyday again, I will. I loved the way the products made my hair feel.

Then I washed my hair and discovered my hair has the natural curls/wave that it used to have back. Guess all it needed was layers to take out the weight of it. You’ll be seeing a lot of those in the future, I don’t usually heat style my hair.
So readers, what do you think of my new hairs?

Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Review

I’ve always been sort of lucky when it comes to my hair. My hair is probably my favorite thing about myself, if I straighten it, it stays that way for days, and if I curl it it says til I brush it out. I very rarely have a terrible day where it just won’t do anything.

In return I try and take very good care of my hair. I’m very picky about what I use on my hair, and since I’m currently absolutely in love with what I’m using, I thought I’d show you guys.

I’m currently using the Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo and Conditioner every time I wash my hair. Normally I mix it up, but I adore these together so much. It has Tea Tree Oil, Peppermint and Lavender as the promoted ingredients, and on the front of the bottle it says that they’re an invigorating cleanser and conditioner respectively. They were $6 and $7 for 300ml at my local JCP salon respectively and honestly I’ve paid that for drugstore shampoos that I haven’t loved. These however leave my hair feeling fresh and squeaky clean but still soft and bouncy at the same time. I adore them. Also it may just be me, but I’ve used this line before and it really seemed to help my hair grow, and I’m thankfully having the same result this time. I’m going to guess that its because its invigorating, and it really has made my hair healthier. The last time I went for a bang trim, I asked if my ends needed a trim as well and my stylist told me I didn’t because I had no split ends. Which was awesome because it had been over 2 months since my last trim when she said this.

The Tea Tree Hair and Scalp Treatment is a new addition to my routine, new enough that I don’t feel comfortable doing an all out review, but I like it so far. I bought this because I’m currently trying to grow my hair out super long and this along with the rest of the line is meant to be invigorating. I’ve read a bunch of different places that if you want to speed up hair growth you need to stimulate your scalp and keep it healthy. Since this needs to be massaged into your scalp I figure it might help. That’s not actually its purpose but since the shampoo and conditioner seem to help then I figure this extra step might.

Plus as an extra bonus, the Tea Tree line is carbon neutral. That’s not something I obsess about, and honestly didnt even know until after I bought it, but it is nice to know. Because I’m not all vapid and shallow, I totally care about the earth and stuff. I mean, like, just sign me up for the Pismo Beach Disaster Relief League already!

Then finally is the Paul Mitchell Super Skinny serum. I’ve actually used this on and off for years, ever since the first time my bestie T. flat ironed my hair for the first time. I adore this and it’s the only heat protectant type thing I’ve ever used that doesn’t make my hair either weird or greasy. Yes that includes the Treseme heat protectant that’s beloved by every Beauty Guru and her Flat Iron. My hair just doesn’t react well to anything else. You may have noticed that this is a tiny bottle. I don’t actually use heat on my hair very often so I don’t need much of this. I’ve had this tiny bottle for nearly a year now, and i use one full pump everytime I use heat on my hair. Mostly I just blow dry my bangs and let the rest of my hair air dry. My hair is naturally wavy sometimes, other times its pretty damn straight. I only blow dry my hair if I plan to leave it down and I only straighten or curl it if I’m going out or doing something special.

Next time I get my bangs trimmed I plan on picking up the Lemon Sage Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner, which is part of the Tea Tree range of products, to try out. Just to have a different scent, or maybe some added volume some days. I think it’d be great for spring/summer when I tend to do messier more voluminous styles. I’m also going to see if I can find a texturizing spray or maybe try one of the texturizing balms to help with my messy, beachy summer hair. ¬†What are your favorite Volumizing or Texturizing products Readers? Are there any out there I should avoid?

Side note: for those that caught the reference: Yes, that is a Clueless Reference, I make them often. Or if you did not catch the reference: No, I’m not that stupid, yes I know Pismo Beach never had a disaster, its a Clueless reference.
