Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk For Brown to Dark Hair Will Raise the Root, Y’all!

Published in: Hair, Klorane, Product Reviews

Holding my new favorite hair thingamabobber, Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk For Brown to Dark Hair (I may or may not be on third-day hair right now)

Because you and I can comfortably go into TMI territory, I’m guessing/hoping that you won’t be grossed out when I say that I get a weird thrill from seeing how long I can go without washing my hair.

I find it fascinating and kind of disgusting at the same time.

I think the longest I’ve ever gone is five days… Or maybe it was six? I had a killer blowout (’twas glorious! — like in a shampoo commercial), and I hated to see it go…

Obvs, I need a lot of help when I do this, since a woman trying to get by on minimal hair washing cannot do it on unicorn kisses and tabby whiskers alone, and when I say “a lot of help,” I mean copious amounts of dry shampoo, which lately has been Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk for Brown to Dark Hair ($19.50), a tinted aerosol dry shampoo with softening (ooh!) and smoothing (ah!) oat milk and a paraben- and colorant-free formula. It’s designed for all hair types.

Your Hair Has a New Secret Weapon, and It’s a Tool for Teeth

Published in: Beauty Tips, Hair, Makeup Tips/How To

toothbrush as hair tool final

Why walk around with a misbehaving mop when your favorite dental dynamo can help? Yaaaas, girl! Toothbrushes aren’t just for cleaning teeth (or gunky lash combs) anymore. They’re also great for taming unruly stray hairs.

Here’s what you do…

  1. Grab a spare toothbrush — the stiffer the bristles, the better. Ideally, you’d want to dedicate a spare NEW one, but if you have an old one sitting around, and it doesn’t gross you out to repurpose it, go for it.
  2. Spray the bristles with your favorite firm-hold hairspray, and don’t be afraid to douse that ish!
  3. Now, gently comb the wet toothbrush through any rebellious stray hairs — much like you’d use a hair brush — to get them to obey orders and fall into place.

Are There Any Hairstyles You’d Absolutely Never Do?

Published in: Hair, Just For Fun

Flashback 2012: A bob, bangs and pink hair…

When it comes to mah hurr, I think I’m pretty adventurous, open to most styles, and I’m down to switch it up every 15 seconds or so (OK, well, like every three or four months).

And I never like to say “never,” because you can’t predict how your tastes will change, but I am comfortable saying that there are certain hairstyles that I’m relatively positive I will never even attempt to try.

Like a pixie cut.

I love it on other people! — don’t get me wrong — but I know that I couldn’t handle the growing-out process. I had super short chin-length hair once in the late ’90s, and I still shudder when I think about it creeping down the back of my neck when I was trying to grow it out. I cut it at least four times because I just couldn’t handle the growing-out part.

I don’t think I could do a mullet or a shag, either. Again, I’ve seen them on some very fashionable girls who can legit rock ’em, and they look very trendy and chic, but I don’t think I’m nearly bad-@ss enough to pull them off. Maybe if I had some tattoos…

Any sort of severe blunt cut would probably also be a bad idea. My hair requires layers in order to function, LOL! When it’s all one length, it just looks flat and heavy…and very Cousin It.

Let’s see, what else…? Oh! — I don’t think I’d ever, EVER get a reeeeallly tight perm. See: leftover childhood trauma. When my grandma went to beauty school back in the day she used my hair to practice!!

Bless her heart… She meant well, but what transpired was not at all cute.

Hmm… It looks like I’m less adventurous than I thought, LOL! :)

How about you, sweets? Are there are hairstyles you’d absolutely never do?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Bumble and Bumble Surf Infusion Oil and Salt-Infused Spray Waves Hello to Volume and Goodbye to Crispy Hair

Published in: Bumble and Bumble, Hair, Product Reviews

I love beachy wave sprays, but I do NOT love that crispy thing that many of them do to mah hurr.

Beachy waves = yes. Crunchy hair = nooo.

Apparently, I am not alone in this tale of beachy woe because Bumble and Bumble whipped up a solution. Their new Surf Infusion oil and sale-infused spray coaxes coifs into shiny, beachy waves without “dat crunchy feeling.” This is compared to most of the beachy wave sprays I’ve tried, which leave behind a matte finish and hair that feels a tad gritty.
