Hair Care

haircareI’m obsessed with my hair, I’m a Leo after all. A brush I swear by is the Tangle Teezer, it keeps my hair silky smooth and tangle free.

Another item I can’t live without is my Huile de Palm by Leonor Greyl.  I apply it in the evenings and rinse it out the following morning, results are lust-worthy locks.

I also mix in Oribe and Serge Normant for styling my tresses, this is for when I need to make an impression, like a date etc.

I also only use haircare accessories by Alexandre de Paris, my sisters and I are crazy for them.

 

So, what haircare items are you guys using?

Haircare Secrets – Leonor Greyl

Beauty, Hair Care
AshlyGreenLeonorGreyl

I know Ashley Green isn’t wearing red lipstick, but just look at her hair?  Not a frizz in sight, it’s smooth, sleek and chic.

She has my hair.  The great news is that her stylist, Richard Collins  used Leonor Greyl to achieve this effortless style. And you’re not going to believe this, but only three products were applied, this is the technique.

“Next, I took Leonor Greyl’s Éclat Naturel, massaged it into my hands, and using my palms smoothed the product on the top of her hair and along the bang area going across the front of her face.  This styling cream has a bit of shine to it, which is really nice, and exactly what I wanted.

To set the look, I sprayed the Laque Souple on a toothbrush and smoothed down any flyaways along her hairline and around the ear.

Lastly, to finish the look, I took some Éclat Naturel on my fingers and ran it through the hair around her face, concentrating on the ends and piecing it through a little bit, but made sure it wasn’t too saturated.  This kept the look shiny, instead of greasy.” – Richard Collins.

Doesn’t she look lovely?

Taming Frizzy Hair – Rene Furterer

Beauty, Hair Care

LisseI’m obsessed with taming my frizzy hair, I’ll try anything and find that using the same haircare products on a daily basis doesn’t mean they will always work the way you want them to.

In other words I found various haircare products that work, I add them into my rotations and use them when the current item I’m using out-wears it’s welcome.  Basically ladies, you have to rotate your beauty products to benefit the most by them.

One item I found that helps with the frizz is the Lissea Thermal Protectant Smoothing Spray by Rene Furterer.

I mist my long precious locks before applying my volumizing mousse and my frizzies are cut down to a minimum.

Rene Furterer is serious haircare that began as a treatment for problematic hair, it’s chemical free and good for you.

Isn’t it time you switched up your A game?

Model recommended Haircare – Leonor Greyl

Beauty, Hair Care

leonorgreylI first heard of Leonor Greyl reading the European fashion magazines and on blogs like Style.com.  Everyone was raving about it, especially the models that sat in chairs for hours before a fashion shoot or show.

Their claim was that it was the only brand that saved their precious locks during color changes, wigs, hair tools etc.

Well, I’ve become a fan and know exactly what they are talking about, it really is the best natural haircare collection available.

Creme Moelle de Bambou is one of the few shampoos I use that doesn’t require the use of a hair conditioner afterwards, My tresses are left silky smooth, soft and flyaways are more manageable.

I recommend that you invest in a quality shampoo and like fashion you can mix high and low brands, you just have to know your stuff.

I love the Masque Quintessence because it’s one of the few masks that can be applied on dry hair, this works best for me because I hate waiting in the shower for a mask to perform.

Another favorite item that really does tame flyaways is their Serum De Soie, your locks will be smooth, sleek and natural looking.

So, what haircare products do you use?
