My Favorite Travel Rollers

If you’re in the market for travel rollers, I recommend these, T3 Voluminous Hot Rollers.  You get eight (4 x 1.75″ rollers and 4 x 1.50″) flocked rollers packed in a black travel case.  They heat up quickly and provide body and bouncy curls on the go.  Available at Sephora.

July Favorites

To the list – BUMBLE AND BUMBLE A Tint of Brown Hair Powder: I love this tinted dry shampoo.  It cost more than the tinted Batiste which I use regularly but it can cast a grayish residue and this does not.  Comes in various shades, available at Sephora for $36 and salons.

Product Review: Airmotion Hair Brush & Tangle Teaser

These are my go to tools for brushing my tangled, wet hair. The Airmotion Hair Brush can be used on wet or dry hair.  You can find it on Amazon for about $20. My Tangle Teaser is much loved.  I’ve been using it going on two years now and wouldn’t be without one.  They’ve expanded into different shapes, styles, and colors.  You can find them in stores and online for about

June Favorites

Much loved (and very worn) June Favorites! Pureology Pure Volume Shampoo: I absolutely love this shampoo and will definitely keep buying it.  It’s taking me months to get through this giant bottle.  It’s from the pink range for fine, color-treated hair and I love the way by hair styles after I use it.  Pureology is also a vegan brand.  Available in salons and Ulta. Ojon Dry Recovery Revitalizing Moisture Mist:
