Blotting Brush

I just heard about this genius little brush made by Goody that I can't wait to get my hands on. Not only is it $12, but it comes equipped with sponge like antimicrobial bristles that suck up any excess water from your dripping locks, literally cutting your drying time in half.  Unfortunately it's not available until March, but judging by the write-ups it'll be well worth the wait.

Curl Compound

Here's my not-so-secret-anymore curly hair product recipe, please enjoy! Paul Mitchell is one of my go-to lines, they're old school and that's proof the products are good as they've been around forever. I love using the Soft Sculpting Spray Gel and the Sculpting Foam together, the concoction kills every ounce of frizz and keeps my abundance of curls all uniform. I was using the foam first, followed by the spray gel, but as of late, I've been doing the reverse. Sometimes I then let it air dry, but since it's winter my diffuser wins.

Cutting-Edge Coiffure

What'd Katy Perry do last Friday night? She finally threw away the ol' Kool-Aid packets and opted for a much more modern bob. I love the new cut, but the color is questionable. Thoughts?

Old School Tool

 Believe it or not, this ancient long hair magic trick produces massive body and impeccable waves.
My mom says they used to wrap their hair before bed and actually slept sitting up!
Oh, to be a woman..
*I recommend a little teasing and some spray gel before the cans go in.
Then use your blowdryer with a diffuser to set!
**The longer they stay in, the better.
 Here's the end result:
Who doesn't want hair like Giselle? Yum.

Static Support

The cold winter air is right around the corner and that means so is staticy hair, it's godawful during the coldest season of the year! Wanna be prepared for Jack Frost? Here are a few supplies you'll need to tackle wintertime hair: Bounce dryer sheets are my GoTo because you can keep them in your purse and car, rub one on the top of your head and watch the static instantly disappear. Stop the static before it starts with Goldwell Kerasilk's Instant Silk Fluid, it's a highly-concentrated leave-in cream that I've sworn by for years. You apply to damp hair before drying and it leaves the hair excessively soft. Here's another never-fail option! I don't recommend spraying this directly onto your hair though, spray Static Guard onto your brush or hand first, and then into hair. This seriously works every time. My last suggestion is a tad pricey, however you will notice an immediate change in the condition of your hair after using Pureology Nanoworks Reconstructing Treatment.
