ACM Novophane Energizing Shampoo, Anti Hair Loss Lotion, Food Supplement Preview

Hello beauties!

I’m a natural blonde who never dyed her hair and like so many other natural blondes out there my hair is thin, breaks up easily and I’m constantly in need for anti hair loss products or any type of product that will stimulate hair growth, regeneration and strengthen the hair. Recently as I got familiarized with ACM Laboratoire Dermatologique products I discovered they also promise a solution for my constant anti hair loss problem. All these being said I now find myself testing ACM Novophane Energizing Shampoo, ACM Novophane Anti Hair Loss Lotion and ACM Novophane Food Supplement for nails and hair. I got the package this Monday along with a complementary gift, the new ACM Sensitelial Micellar Lotion as my combination and sensitive skin really loves light lotions like this one.

Hair Care Products I’m Curently Using – Quick Review

Hello sweeties!

If last month I posted a quick review of Face Care Products I’m currently using I though I would show you my hair care products. Perhaps you will say there are way to much products but some of them I just finished using last week/ month and I want to mention them because they are great products, others I use from time to time because I’ve changed my hair care routine and some of them I’m using a few times a week.

What you should now about my hair

I need to mention this because even though some of these products did wonders for my hair, they might not work for you. I’m a natural blonde and although it might seem strange for some of you, I’m still wearing my natural color and I never (really, never ever) dyed my hair. I admit sometimes I wanted to try different colors but I gave up knowing that I will have to dye my hair all the time (I really hate when I see roots of different color on other girls) and also because all the stylist I went to recommended me to keep my natural color. Being a natural blonde my hair is very very thin and no hairstyle will resist more than few hours. Even when I go to a hair salon for a coiffure after a few hours (no matter how much hair spray or other fixing products I have on my hair) the result is still the same. My hair will return to its natural state…straight, soft, puffy and just a little bit (only on the left side) wavy. 🙂

For years I’ve been using the flat iron, sometimes even 2 – 3 times a week and last year in November I reached a point where I had to stop destroying my hair. I had very serious hair loss problems, my hair was getting thinner and thinner to a point where it was almost transparent at the ends,  and using some of these products regularly was the reason why I wasn’t bald already. 🙂 But even the best products can’t keep up with the flat iron being used so often. Since November 2011 until now I’ve used it only 2 times and my hair is again healthy, has a vivid color, is thicker and most important it doesn’t fall anymore. 🙂

As you can see I like to use a variety of products from high-end brands to drugstore products. If you are interested in any of these products please write me in the comments  bellow and I can make a full review about the product of your choice. Continue Reading

Healthy Hair Shampoo and its best ingredients

You are facing dandruff or hair loss problems and your skin is very sensitive? Your hair is dry and breakable? You must choose a product that contains all the ideal components for your scalp and hair.

Recent studies shown that by using usual cosmetic products, in your bodies can enter different complexes that can start skin irritation and can also determine premature epidermis aging.

Anti-dandruff shampoos with double action (dedicated caring products) have different formulas designed for different hair types from normal to oily hair or dry with severe loss problems. These shampoos have in their composition irreplaceable substances and active principles like: Continue Reading

Review: Freeman Papaya and Lime Shine Conditioner

Since I know that many of you girls complimented me on my shiny and healthy hair I’ve decided to share with you one of my hair products that seems to help me a lot these days.

Maybe if you’ve heard about the Freeman products but if you didn’t let me tell you that they are covering hair care, bath & body, face, hand and foot care products. I can say that I’ve been using only some of their products from the hair care line and it seems to me that my hair gets along quite well with their Papaya and Lime Shine Conditioner.

Shine-Healthy-Hair

I’ve been using in the past their volume shampoo with papaya and awapuhi and another conditioners but I’m going to stick for a while with the  Shine conditioner. Continue Reading

My experience at Make Up For Ever and Sephora beauty shops

Hi Girls!

Today I went to Make Up For Ever (MUFE) professional beauty shop decided to check out their goodies and to buy a new foundation. Almost 2 months ago I’ve bought All Mat Face Matifying Primer (I will review it shortly)  from Make Up For Ever and since I was so pleased with it I’ve decided to buy the foundation from the same brand.

The shop was not very big (almost the size of my living room) but full with all the products of the new collection and makeup accessories. When I entered the shop the 2 makeup artists present there were very polite and they offered to help me right away. It was a pleasant surprise to see that they have makeup artists in the shop instead of beauty sellers like in other beauty shops and let me tell you that the difference was huge. They were really aware of all the products in the shop (at least of all  that I’ve asked for) and they could also help you with makeup tips and advices . After checking out some of the new products I’ve stopped to look at the HD foundation and one of the makeup artist was glad to help me out.

Make-Up-For-Ever-Professional-shop

I told her that I’m looking for a new foundation (for oily skin) and she invited me to take a seat at the makeup table, where she will test some of the foundation on my skin. Here was the first difference (in the positive way of course),  because working with clients all the time she really knew what I needed and showed me the only 2 foundation fit for my skin type.

Since I knew that I was going to look for a foundation I didn’t put any makeup on my face (only mascara and lipgloss) so she started by testing the Mat Velvet Matifying Foundation (for oily skin type) after she used a makeup cream removal. Maybe in other countries is normal that when you are shopping for a foundation a makeup artist should assist you and test the foundation on your skin, but believe me that here this is not happening (most of the times sellers try the products on their own skin) and this was the first time when I’ve experienced this in my country and I felt great. I definitely told to myself that I will comeback since they were so professional in choosing the right shade especially since I’ve never tried their foundations before. Continue Reading

Kerastase – beautiful hair in 3 steps

Nicollette Sheridan

How can I have a beautiful healthy hair like celebrities have?  I keep hearing this question again and again in my mind but I can’t seem to find the answer. I’m sure that we all want to look our best everyday without the help of a beauty stylist. Recently I’ve read an article where Laurent Tourette, adviser stylist at Kerastase, reveals us some of her secrets.

First of all , she  recommends us  a nutritional program from Kérastase in three steps: Step 1 – Bain Satin 3, Step 2 – Masquintense, Step 3 – Nectar thermique, followed by Noctogenist for night.
Kerastare-Bain Satin-Shampoo
Nutritive Bain Satin 3 Shampoo brings th optimal dose of nutrition starting from the root. “In order that activators penetrate the skin, massage the scalp and the hair length, “says Laurent.
After shampoo, she recommends for very dry and sensitized hair, the  nourishing treatment with high concentration of carbohydrates, lipids and protides, Masquintense, which provides optimal nourishment to the top. “Provides intense nourishment to dry and sensitized hair, shine and suppleness. Disciplines and smooths the thick hair within 5 minutes.” Continue Reading

Hot Hair

Great hair doesn’t need to take forever – just add a glam accessory or try one of these speedy hair-saving ideas…Look at Rihanna how she styles up her short crop with a diamante dazzler.

Heavenly hair in a hurry

Try these speedy solutions for tresses to impress.

  1. In the morning after washing your hair, apply a volumising mousse like Lee Stafford double blow mousse, to lengths.
  2. Rough dry, then randomly pile all of your hair up into a messy bun and secure with a gorgeous accessory.
  3. Undo it at the end of the day for big hair. Instead of wearing it down – which could look messy – pull the top half back and secure with a sparkly clip to create an up’do full of bounce.

Speedy tip

Dry shampoo is your secret weapon! Batiste Dry shampoo in blush, has a fab floral scent.

How to get a new look if you have short hair

If you have fairly short, baby-fine hair and you can never think of anything to do with it I found some ideas that maybe will help you get a new look without changing so much.

Dry shampoo

One easy way to transform short hair is to give it lots of extra height and add some pretty hair slides. But to give it a really funky edge, try adding some dry shampoo, which creates a tough, dusty texture and helps hold your style too.
