Sephora’s Holiday Bonus Event opened up to VIB (15% off) & Insiders (10% off) today! This is a great time, pre-holiday, to stock up on some of your favorites or start getting gifts. I plan to do a little bit of both this weekend! There are so many great products at Sephora, but I don’t want to overwhelm anyone, so I’m sharing 6 of my favorite, go-to products & 6 products that are currently on my must-try-immediately list.CONTINUE READING
Today I want to share a hair product that has changed my life! I got a sample of this little gem in my Birchbox last year & it sat in my maybe-I’ll-try-this-later box of samples for a few weeks. I have super fine hair that tends toward oily, so I’m always suspicious of leave-in treatments. They tend to weigh my hair down and/or make it look greasy. After a friend, who has a similar hair type, raved about the Beauty Protector – Protect & Detangle, I decided to give it a try. I’ve been using it daily ever since & cannot praise it enough!
First, it smells great! While not critical, it’s always a nice treat to have good-smelling products.
Second, it detangles! My fine hair tangles up instantly when I get out of the shower. I’m trying to grow out my hair some more, so it’s important to protect against breakage that can occur when combing out wet hair. Protect & Detangle makes it so much easier & less painful to manage my wet hair.
Third, it protects! If I’m going to wear my hair down, I have to wash it in the morning. Washing at night only leads to oily, unmanageable hair in the am, & a ponytail. Washing in the am also means I have to blow-dry it almost daily to avoid going to work with wet hair. Protect & Detangle has reduced the broken/split ends & fly-aways that come with constant blow drying, plus it helps protect the color from heat.
Fourth, it lightly conditions! As I said, my fine hair leans toward oily, so I can’t deal with heavy conditioners. They also tend to weigh my hair down. With Protect & Detangle, even after blow-drying, my color-treated hair is soft & shiny. It’s lightweight so I don’t feel like I lose any volume either.
Finally, it’s versatile! I use it daily on wet hair to detangle & protect before blowing drying. But, it has also come in handy to detangle dry, windblown hair before brushing out.
