Taking it old school !! The cure for your damaged dry hair..

Hello Everyone !!

Just when I thought I had the upper hand on this cold weather.. Winter played the wild card on me.. he played the HAIR Card !! ( enter here dramatic horror music ) Last week I went to get my hair trimmed and the stylist could not believe how dry my hair was, and to be honest I was surprised myself. I mean.. I thought I was taking care of my hair, weekly treatments, good shampoo/conditioner.. good hair creams.. what more was a girl to do ?? Well I over estimated the power of my hair cream and thought it would be enough to battle this cold weather, unfortunately it failed miserably . Well shortly after my hair cut I dashed to Sally for some serious hair treatments and while I was looking for a good leave in conditioner.. I ran into this:

Yes ladies !! They still make the original Infusium 23 leave in conditioner !!! OMG ! I have never been more excited to see a bottle of product before in my life ! For all those who don't know this product.. Infusium 23 is a leave in treatment that you spray into your hair. This product was a cult favorite back in the 90's and I think the reason why our hair didn't fall out after using so much hairspray and LA looks Gel.

Here is the product description:

"Infusium 23 Original Formula Pro-Vitamin Leave-In Conditioner corrects, restores, restructurizes and infuses hair with 23 essential pro-vitamin and treatment ingredients"

I have been using this leave in for the last 4-5 days and I can't believe how wonderful my hair feels. It's soft, hydrated and it does not weight down my very thin hair which is hard to find in a leave in conditioner.

Back in the 90's this product used to come in a bottle with a spray not anymore so what I did was some into a small sprayer bottle for easier use. I spray a bit into my hair after my shower and it also works great as a touch up spray when you want to refresh your hair in between washes.

Last night my husband even asked me what I was doing to my hair because it looks great.. Now if that's not confirmation that this product works, I don't know what is.

You can find this liquid hair potion at Sally's Beauty Supply for about 5-6 bucks. In my opinion this is definitely a must have product on everyone's beauty arsenal.

Check it out and let me know what you guys think !

Until next time - K

How to help you skin beat the winter blues...

Hello There !! I love winter ! I love getting getting all bundled up with my favorite scarf and enjoy the smell of the crisp night air. What I don't love is this itchy dry skin !! So here are some of my favorite items to keep my skin from suffering from winter blues...

Hands and Body - Eucerin Moisturizing Cream and Lotion

This cream is an oldie but goodie. What I love about this cream is that is does a great job in not only moisturizing but also protect it against the elements. This non-irritating , fragrance free cream and lotions are clinically proven to be effective on extra dry and sensitive skin. For those whose skin is not as dry as the sahara, check out their Intensive Repair Lotion which is great for all over the body.

Face - Olay regenerist micro sculpting night cream
Dear Olay, Thank you for finally putting out something that is worth spending money on !
This night time cream is an Allure Magazine Readers Choice award winning cream. Its super hydrating and packed with amino acids to help the with the regeneration of our skin.
Added bonus ** If you are a Costco shopper you can find a 2 pack for under $ 50.00. Check it out !

and lots but not least.. LIPS- Korres Lip Butters
Now I am about to talk some craziness.. I am about to tell you to go RUN to your nearest Sephora and pay $ 1o.00 for this gold in a jar. YES I said pay 10 bucks for a lip balm ! You must be thinking.. " that's it.. she lost her mind" Well I might have.. or I might have just found the most amazing lip product of all time !! ( I say the second option sounds best ) . Korres lip butters are 100 % natural lip smoothing goodness. This stuff is so hydrating, so absolutely smoothing that you will throw away that Carmex and never look back. This stuff is so great that me and my husband fight for it ( at $ 10.00 bucks a jar you know I am territorial with mine ) A great and added bonus is that they come in 7 amazing shades ranging from a beautiful wild rose to clear. These can be paired up with you favorite lipstick or worn alone. Ohhh and the smell ... THE SMELL !! AMAZING !! My favorite is Jasmine ( Sheer Neutral Pink ) with it's cotton candy like scent.. really it's worth every dime. Check it out here at Sephora or
