Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse Review



This Michigan summer has been a hot one - 90 degree temperatures and high humidity! It feels like Florida!

In order to keep my hair somewhat tame in this humidity, I've been testing a lot of different products...smoothing cremes, anti-humidity serums, hairspray...the list goes on.  After two days of not washing my hair, it would be pretty weighed down by product, so when I washed it, I knew I had to take an extra step to get all of the built up product out.


I recently got the chance to try out Beautiful Nutrition's Lemon Rinse Gentle Clarifying Treatment. Lemon Rinse is a gentle clarifying treatment you can use after you shampoo and condition your hair. It helps to rinse away product buildup and helps with frizz and dullness. 

I used this product for over a month, on average one to two times a week, and my hair felt super clean afterwards. I would use my normal shampoo and conditioner, and then coat my hair with this rinse. I'd leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse it out. The product is clear, and has a thicker liquid consistently (see picture below). I've been using this for a month and I still have a lot left. I would estimate that a 13 oz bottle would last around 4 months (when using it 1-2 times a week). And although it doesn't last after I blow dry my hair, the lemon scent is so refreshing - perfect for a morning pick me up! 


I've used previous cleansers that would make my hair super dry, and this one definitely did not. I also noticed that my 'second day hair' was less greasy, and I didn't have to use dry shampoo. According to BeautifulNutrition.com, other potential benefits include: shine, seals cuticles, maintains healthy scalp, prevents frizz, and seals moisture. It's great for all hair types, including color-treated hair.

You can find Beautiful Nutrition's Lemon Rinse Gentle Clarifying Treatment at BeautifulNutrition.com and it retails for $10. BeautifulNutrition.com carries a variety of haircare and wellness products. Visit their site and let me know which products you want to try out in the comments below!

Dove Hair Care Review Follow Up

 
Back in September I did a review of Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. I've continued to use this pair as part of my hair care regimen, and I can really tell a difference in my hair. After styling it looks much more softer and healthier (I previously had issues with dryness). 

My new hair condition also prompted me to try some new styles. Before, my hair was so dry, I didn't want to expose it to more heat than I already do with a flat iron. But now that its full of moisture, I wanted to try out the wavy bob look (totally inspired by Hannah from Pretty Little Liars). 


Voila! What do you think? I have some work to do on perfecting it but I think I'm off to a pretty good start, considering that I haven't used a curling iron in about 20 years! I blew my hair dry straight and then sectioned it off with clips. I started with the back and then worked my way forward, wrapping medium size sections of hair around my curling iron. After I was done curling I brushed all of the curls out. They came out very bouncy and soft! I finished it off with a spritz of hairspray.


Dove is sharing the love with Lipgloss Readers, offering up free samples from the Dove Hair Care product line to the first 500 entrants. Enter here!

What's in my Beach Bag? Alterna Bamboo Beach Collection

alterna bamboo beachIt's always a bummer coming out of the lake or pool with tangled, ratty hair. I always try to keep a large comb and hair products in my bag in case I don't have time to shower and blow dry my hair after swimming. Most recently, I've been keeping Alterna's Beach Bamboo collection in my beach bag to help tame my hair after a day on the lake.

After I'm done swimming, I'll spray my hair with Alterna Bamboo Beach Sun Recovery spray and comb through with a large tooth comb. Once my tangles are out I'll spray on Alterna Bamboo Beach Summer Ocean Waves spray and scrunch my hair with my hands. Voila, beachy waves!

Both products smell amazing. Light scent of coconut and a little fruitiness. The Summer Ocean Waves spray is really light and doesn't make your waves super 'crunchy' like some curl enhancers do. Both products are free of parabens, sulfates, and synthetic colors.

You can find Alterna's Bamboo Beach line on their site, Amazon.com & Drugstore.com.

Have you rocked the 'beachy waves' look this yet this summer? What was in your beach bag this past weekend?


L'Occitane Radiance & Color Care Mask

 I'm always on the hunt for a new hair conditioner. My hair has become so dry over the years. From highlights to sunlight, I'm not the nicest to my hair, so I like to invest in and try out new conditioners and hair treatments.

I received a sample of L'Occitane's Radiance & Color Care collection mask and love it! It's so creamy and rich and I love the way it soaks into my hair when I apply it in the shower. You're only suppose to use it once a week but I use it about two times a week and have loved the results. I apply this in the shower after shampooing and leave it on for as long as I can (I use a quarter size amount each use). It's the last thing I rinse before getting out of the shower. 

My hair is visibly softer and smoother when I use this mask. Even after blow drying and flat ironing my hair it still looks soft. My mom even asked 'what have you done differently with your hair?'! The mask has a light scent to it, with a hint of rose. 
Have you tried any of L'Occitane's hair care line yet? If so, what did you think?

Mane Teeze Hair Perfume Review

If you have ever...
skipped a day of washing your hair, or
skipped a hair wash after a workout at the gym, or
dreaded the smell of your hair after attending a hibachi restaurant....this product is for you.

I'm talking about Mane Teeze hair perfume. This is not a regular perfume. Mane Teeze contains higher concentrates than regular perfumes, but is still very gentle for use on your hair. The long lasting scent is noticeable for up to 12 hours. I have witnessed this! I sprayed this in my hair at 7am and my hairstylist said my hair smelled great when she started my highlights 10+ hours later.

Owners of Blow Dry Bar, Melanie Groom and Tara McIntyre, recognized they were missing a piece of the hair styling category. In order to fill this void, they created Mane Teeze by T&M. Check out their site, these two ladies look like so much fun!

I was fortunate to get a sample of Social Butterfly, which is a vanilla and coconut scent. Definitely reminds me of summer scents. Just two sprays lasted the whole day.

There are two other scents, Black Widow & Haut Mess. Black Widow is a dark amber scent, and Haut Mess is a mix of chocolate, caramel and dessert like scents (yum!). Ideally I'd keep one in my gym bag and one at home. I've taken mine on all of my business trips in the last month - it's TSA size approved!

They retail at $34 for 50 ml and can be purchased from ManeTeeze.com. I think a bottle this size will last a long time. I know I'm going to savor every spritz!

RUSK Wired

I am currently loving RUSK Wired flexible styling creme. It's a thicker styling cream, and when applied to towel dried hair, makes blow drying a breeze and leaves my hair super smooth. Rusk rates it as a medium (3 out of 6) on their 'hold scale.'

For my short hair, I applied a little more than a pea size amount (maybe 2 peas!). I rubbed it between my hands and then applied it first to my ends, and then work up to my roots. I quickly pulled a comb through my hair to help distribute it. I blow dried my hair and voila, silky smoothness. I like how it gives the ends of my hair a smooth finish after flat ironing, and less of a frizzy finish. It held up nice in the humidity and it's great for every day styling. I was given a 2oz travel size to test out, which is perfect for my work travel. This also comes in a larger, 6oz full size.

Giveaway Break - HairMax Haircare

HairMax unisex hair care combines nature and science to bring you a complete hair solution. Here are some highlights from their product line:

HairMax Enhancing Shampoo
Retail Price: $12.00
Hairmax uses Phytic acid in its shampoo system to lower the pH and promote a regenerative action on the base of the scalp, reducing oxidative stress layers. The shampoo system can be used by itself or in conjunction with the HairMax LaserComb. The HairMax shampoo system has a lower pH than most shampoo systems on the market. The company’s research indicates that the oils (sebum) produced in the hair follicle can turn into a waxy substance in higher alkaline environments. This lower pH, phytic acid based shampoo system helps to prevent the sebum build up and promotes the lubrication of the hair follicle to encourage healthier looking hair.

Revitalizing Conditioner
Retail Price: $12.00
Most conditioners are thick and heavy, weighing down the hair making it look flat and difficult to style. HairMax conditioner utilizes innovative botanicals that deeply moisturize the hair shaft then rinse free, leaving the hair soft and manageable.
The HairMax Conditioner restores and protects the hair shaft while a combination of botanicals and vitamins rejuvenate your hair's look and feel. With the added benefit of sunscreen protection, the HairMax Conditioner will encourage a healthy scalp; giving your hair a healthy look and feel, leaving your hair smooth and shiny.

Invigorating Scalp Treatment
Retail Price: $7.50
Healthy hair comes from a healthy scalp. Perspiration, sebum, environmental pollution and styling products can build up on the scalp clogging the hair follicle, leaving particle deposits that can clog hair follicles and leave hair looking flat and greasy. Invigorating Scalp Treatment is designed to dissolve these particles, washing them away, making your hair look full, clean and full of body. The Invigorating Scalp Treatment contains phytic acid to help reduce the pH of the scalp. When used in conjunction with The Hairmax Laser Comb, this facilitates laser absorption from the Hairmax into the scalp.

Hair Fortifier
Retail Price: $7.50
Many of us take vitamins to maintain the health of our body. Well our scalp isn’t any different. HairMax Hair and Scalp Fortifier are vitamins for your hair. This product is infused with a special combination of botanical nutrients, DHT blockers and innovative ingredients, like caffeine, oleanolic acid and biotinoyl tripeptide, that are believed to have positive results for healthier looking hair. HairMax Hair and Scalp Fortifying mist is delivered directly to the root of the hair, maximizing the benefits these innovative ingredients may provide.
