Add A Splash Of Color To Your Life With Splat Hair Chalk

If you’re looking to change your hair without committing to a permanent change, Splat Hair Chalk is a perfect way to change up your look without any commitment to one color.  My daughter has been wanting to express her individuality lately, but she’s WAY too young for any kind of dye, so what’s a mom to do?  I’d hate to tell my little one that she’s not allowed to express herself, but she’s just too young for any kind of color.  Splat Hair Chalk to the rescue!  We received a few colors of hair chalk to try out and I have to tell you that my little girl is thrilled that she can finally have a little fun and self-expression.

Splat Hair Chalk is super fun temporary hair color for a day…what a beautiful way to add color highlights to your hair!  The chalk slides on dry and instantly adds just the right touch of color.  If you’re looking for a deeper color, simply apply the chalk once or twice more and you’ll have results that you’ll love and can’t wait to show off.  The compact is designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand so it is easy to hold onto and apply to hair.  The result is soft color that is easy to brush, curl or style after application and is easily washed out with shampoo!  You can highlight your hair with a different color every day, or mix colors for a totally unique look that’s all your own.  The applicator sponge is included for easy application close to your hair-line or when applying color to braids.

My daughter is absolutely in love with the way the color Sugar Plum looks in her hair.  When you apply it lightly it offers more of a pinkish tone…perfect for my little pink lover!  I can’t even begin to tell you how excited my daughter was to be able to sport pink streaks in her hair to school, she felt like the princess she is, and I love the confidence she has being different from the rest.

Combine Lemon Lime and Mint Candy for a super cool look!  My daughter loves her hair multi-toned like this, she said she feels just like one of the ponies from her favorite show, My Little Pony.  These colors combine perfectly and look fabulous together!  Now we just need to get our hands on the rest of the colors and fulfill her fantasy of completely rainbow hair.

So go ahead and let your freak flag fly with Splat Hair Chalk.  With so many colors to choose from combined with easy application and removal, you’ve got simply one of the best hair products out there!

Polymers enhance curl shape, manageability and body of the hair without weigh down. Retains moisture and hydrates for greater flexibility and tensile strength. Revitalizes curl pattern between washes.

BENEFITS:

  • Refreshes and increases moisture for greater tensile strength
  • Defines curl pattern and provides long-lasting memory
  • Defrizzes and smooths hair cuticles

The Texturizing Salt Spray is a very well working salt infused styling spray that adds texture, fullness and light hold. Perfect for creating tousled beachy waves with just the right amount of volume.

Start Every Day With A Victory…Victory Shampoo #Review

20160902_112836.jpg

Every guy needs a great way to start the day…why not start the day with a victory?  VICTORY anti-dandruff shampoo, that is.  VICTORY is a bold, contemporary, and irreverent anti-dandruff shampoo that gives guys a confident new choice in therapeutic hair care.  With a husband and 2 sons in the house, I couldn’t wait to get some VICTORY in the house for them to try out.

VictoryCollage.jpg

VICTORY was created to take your hair game to the next level with the powerful dandruff formula you need in a shampoo you actually want. With VICTORY, you start each day with a win. A complete domination of dandruff. And when you put up a “W’ before breakfast, that winning feeling carries over into the rest of your day. 

The dark blue bottle pictured is the Superior Clean formula.  It not only gets rid of dandruff, but also prevents recurrence of flaking and itchiness associated with dandruff.  Hydrate & Recover (aqua colored bottled) is sort of like a sports drink for your scalp.  Hydrate & Recover contains a special moisture balancing formula with added almond oil for optimal scalp hydration and recovery to relieve dryness. It will moisturize your dry scalp while reducing oiliness.  Legendary (silver bottle)  provides a rich lather that deep cleans both hair and scalp PLUS conditioner gives your hair epic softness.  Triple Threat (orange bottle) will prevent dandruff, clean your hair and scalp, and has a fresh mango scent. It’s the ultimate trifecta with 1% Pyrithione Zinc to help relieve and prevent scalp dryness,itchiness, flakes and irritation associated with dandruff.  Triple Threat was the favorite of both of my sons due to the fresh, light mango scent.  

After having VICTORY in our household, there’s no way that we’re ever running out.  My husband and my sons have been using VICTORY for just about a week now and they all have loved the way their hair feels, smells, and most of all that it’s flake free!  One of my local Wal-Mart’s is one of the top 10 sellers of VICTORY and it’s easy to see why.  It’s affordable, effective, and great for men (or teens) of all ages.

Get The Best Hair Straightening Brush With Apalus

Apalusbrush

I’m sure you’ve all seen these digital hair straightening brushes and wondered how well they would work.  I know I was VERY interested to see if they would tame my wild mane so when I got the opportunity to work with Apalus I was so EXTREMELY excited.

Apalus3.jpg

Apalus.jpg

When I received the Apalus Digital Hair Straightening Brush I couldn’t wait to use it.  I had already straightened my hair that day so I had to wait until the next day…bummer!  I’m a busy mom of three children so I don’t get to shower until late in the evening when all the kids are laid down.  I end up going to bed with wet hair and waking up with a curly, wild, untamed mane.

I must say, I was not blessed with ‘good hair’.  Some of it is curly, some of it is wavy, the underneath is kinda straight but very frizzy…my hair is just a hot mess.  Nobody but my husband and children see my natural hair, but the only way to prove to you how well it works is to show you the difference that brushing my hair with the Apalus Digital Hair Straightening Brush.

Apalus1.jpgThis is the hot mess I wake up to every day.  I either have to tie it back in a bun or straighten it which up until now, has been a largely time consuming process.

Apalus2.jpg

This is after my first use of the Apalus brush.  What a big difference!  Thanks to Apalus, now taming the beast on my head is as simple as brushing my hair!  I didn’t have super high expectations so you can imagine my surprise when it worked so incredibly well.  I couldn’t help but share with my friends and my 2 of my best friends have already purchased the brush for themselves because they know how my hair is and this brush being effective and simple is absolutely astonishing!

ENJOY Professional Hair Care Review and Giveaway

ENJOY_Logo_12163705
ENJOY Professional Hair Care, if you haven’t tried it yet, should be at the top of your list of products to try. You can have the top notch salon quality that you love right at home, in your own shower!

IMAG0606-1

I got to try an awesome trio from ENJOY Hair Care that I fell in love with. I received Sulfate-Free Luxury Shampoo, Luxury Conditioner, and Straightener. First impression: Wow it smells really good! The shampoo and conditioner have a really sweet, somewhat floral, somewhat coconut-y scent. I was wondering why the holes for dispensing the shampoo and conditioner were so large, but that became pretty apparent the first time I used them…they are really thick and would take forever to get out with smaller openings. After one use with the shampoo and conditioner, my hair felt 10 times better than the cheap stuff I buy at large stores. My hair was softer, smoother, a little shinier, and a lot more easy to manage.

The Straightener has been a heaven send for someone like me with uncontrollable hair. It has a really wonderful fruity and playful smell that I couldn’t seem to get enough of. I love products that work well and save me time, and the Straightener surpassed my expectations for it. Normally I’m blow-drying my hair at night, and if I want to wear it down or even in a pony-tail I have to straighten it with a flat iron as well. After blow-drying my hair using the Straightener product I don’t have to use a flat iron anymore! Not only am I saving time having to do one less thing, I am also sparing my hair of excess heat which we all know leads to more damage. I’m a mom of 3, and any extra minute I can save is greatly appreciated so this is an amazing product for me and my lifestyle.

If you haven’t tried the ENJOY Professional Hair Care, make sure you do soon, you’ll see what the rave is all about.

GIVEAWAY!!!
ENJOY has also been generous enough to sponsor a giveaway! One lucky winner will receive the same trio that I tried out, Retail Value $73.92!

HBL Hair Care Review and Giveaway

logo

HBL makes the most luxurious hair products that I have ever used. HBL sent me an awesome hair care trio of Hydrating Shampoo, Hydrating Conditioner, and Hair Masque.

IMG_20131114_164116-1

All 3 of the products have the same delightfully luxurious scent. After using it for the first time I couldn’t stop smelling and touching my hair. My hair is pretty coarse and thick and no matter what I do I can’t seem to make it feel soft and manageable. HBL has completely changed that. My hair felt really great after the first wash, and after a few uses I could not believe the difference.

IMG_20131114_164201-1

I love how thick and rich the whole line is. Having super thick and long hair I typically have to use a lot of product. A little bit of HBL really goes a long way. I think the little comb that is included with the Hair Masque is genius! I’ve never seen that in any other product that I’ve used and it makes everything just that much more simple. I wish that I could tell you what the rest of my family thought, but this is one of the few items I’ve received that I REFUSE to share. It’s nice to have something to pamper myself 🙂

GIVEAWAY!!!
HBL has also been generous enough to sponsor a giveaway! One lucky winner will get their own HBL Hydrating Trio retail value $62.90! Giveaway will begin on 11/21/13 at 12:00 am EST and end on 11/28/13 at 12:00 am EST. Winner will have 24 hours to claim their prize or another winner will be chosen. Winner will be chosen randomly by rafflecopter.com. Good luck! Please click the link below to enter:
