Aveda Blue Malva Shampoo

Welcome back friends! So sorry that I’ve been MIA for a little while it’s been a crazy week but I’m back!! Today I want to talk about a brand that I fell in love with 2 and a half years ago. Aveda! Long story short I transitioned from jet black boxed dyed hair to blonde hair in about 6 months. I went to an Aveda salon and had the most amazing experience and fell in love with their products.

blue malva shampoo

This is one of those purple shampoos that you can use to enhance and preserve blonde hair. It helps to neutralize the brassyness that occurs over time. One of my favorite things about this shampoo is the scent. For those of you who are familiar with Aveda, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Aveda products are made with natural ingredients and carry an earth fresh scent. Their products never smell like chemicals and they do not test on animals. Win win people!

Now the only downside to this shampoo and many other Aveda shampoos is how it makes your hair feel. I feel like it makes my hair feel a little coarse and not very smooth. But the upside to that is my hair feels so clean! My hair never feels like there’s buildup. A very easy fix to this is just to condition. Once you condition your hair that coarse feeling usually goes away.

You can purchase this shampoo online, aveda salons or even aveda stores.

until next time my friends!

Hot Tools Pink Titanium Curling Iron

Hey friends! Lets talk about some hair stuff! Now…I’ve been using Hot Tools products since the day I picked up a curling iron. I’ve had amazing results with this brand and cannot say a bad thing. They last for years and years and hold up great.

This curling iron comes in 3 sizes…1″, 1 1/4″ and 1 1/2″. I use the 1 1/4″ for my everyday curls. It heats up to 450 degrees almost instantly and it says hot! My favorite part about this curling iron is the swivel cord. It makes everything much easier and tangle free.

You can find this curling iron at Sally Beauty Supply or Ulta…

Bumble and Bumble- Pret-a-Powder

Hi friends! Lets talk about a lifesaver every girl needs…..dry shampoo! I have tried many dry shampoos but I think I have finally found the one!

This little guy is my favorite! Now, the good lord has blessed me with thick textured hair so why do I need this product? Newsflash! At some point everyone’s hair gets oily  and they just want to refresh their hair to wear for a second or third day.

Pret a powder literally powder (duh) that is made up of dry shampoo, style extender and a volumizer. Lets say if I get a blow out or even just put loose waves into my hair on Monday. By Tuesday my hair has fallen flat. I part my hair and gently shake the bottle all along my part into the roots. I go through each section of my hair that has fallen flat or turned a little oily. When I have finished putting the product into my hair I lightly tousle my hair. I flip my hair upside down and shake it out. I comb my fingers through the roots and shake.

Voila! The oil disappears, I have brought back the original volume if not more and the scent of the product freshens up my hair and it smells delicious again!

My favorite part about the product is how well it blends into your hair. A lot of aerosol dry shampoos, once you spray them into your hair it leaves a gray film all along your hair. You try and try to shake it out and it just stays and almost acts like a hairspray and just leaves a film that won’t quit. Pret- a powder doesn’t not do that.

Granted, I have blonde hair….BUT I have a shadow root and I have naturally medium/dark brown hair. I have used this product in my blonde and brown hair and it is literally colorless.

Now, lets talk about hair day 3. If I’m feeling extra ratchet I will extend my style to day 3. By day 3 my hair is much more oily so I’ll usually throw it up in a pony tail or a bun. But have no fear! I use my pret- a – powder once again. I throw some in my roots along the front above my forehead and I’m golden.

You can purchase the product here…
