Go Flake Free With Me With Dove DermaCare

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. It really doesn’t matter what time of year it is, flakes aren’t a wanted trend. Whether you are wearing a cute dark sweater or an adorable dark tank top – if flakes are present, you get embarrassed. I’ve tried several dandruff shampoos or 2-in-1 treatments and while they seem to take care of most of the dandruff issue, my hair suffered. It would feel stripped, dry and even looked it. But if I used shampoos and conditioners that made my hair look incredible, I had to deal with flakes. As my son gets older, he has the same, thick hair I have… and the same issues. We have the exact same hair type. His hair feels like straw if he uses dandruff control shampoo. Together, we are going on a flake free journey with Dove Dermacare Scalp! We…

Time to Stock Up On Spring Essentials

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own. The sun is finally shining (well, in California anyway) and I’m in the Spring time mood! Out with the Winter skin care and hair care products and in with the Spring essentials. Vons/Pavilions, Albertsons and Jewel-Osco all have you covered with your Unilever needs. Our household has different needs, and with that comes different products. So when amazing sales are going on, I head out and stock up on essentials for the season. I might also do this so the boys don’t use up all my precious staples. I’m a huge fan of Nexxus and how good it makes my hair look and feel. The Nexxus Keraphix shampoo helps to heal damage to your hair and is Infused with an exclusive PROTEINFUSION blend with Keratin Protein and Black Rice. It’s silicone free, which helps prep your hair for deep…

Transitioning to Spring with Suzanne Somers Organics

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own We’re at that point in the season where it’s warmer than Winter but still a little chilly for Spring. We’re getting ready to show off more skin and not worry about soaked, windblown hair as much. So tonight I’m going to show you how I’m transitioning to Spring with Suzanne Somers Organics! Suzanne Somers beauty products are made with natural botanical extracts, enzymes, skin-nurturing anti-oxidants, organic fruits, and vegetables. I’m coming up on 36 this month (eep!) so I’m trying to take a bit better care of myself, and ingredients in the products I use are starting to be more important to me. When I was younger I figured “Hey, it’s fine to use anything – I’ll bounce back!” Well at 35, I can say I don’t bounce back as nicely as I used to. I’m…

Keeping My Hair Hot In The Winter With SunIn

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own I remember when I was in Junior High and blonde highlights were all the rage. My mom wasn’t a fan and refused to pay for a salon to highlight my hair, but she also wouldn’t do it at home for me out of fear of ruining my long locks. Then one day she found a solution – SunIn! While at Walmart she came across SunIn which said it adds natural highlights to your hair with the sun. So she bought me my first bottle. Basically SunIn is an alcohol free hair product that brings out your natural highlights and conditions while it lightens. Back then, I would spray it in sections of my hair and head to school. On my break and lunch break, I would stand out in the sun and my hair would lighten…

White Sands Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner

Press Sample This review is a little behind! I had the opportunity to try out some products from White Sands a few months ago and I used them all for 30 days straight. Generally with hair care I try to exclusively use the products sent so that I get a good idea of how my hair reacted to the products without any other outside sources skewing those results. For this review I received White Sands Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner plus The Cure 24/7 Serum. This was pretty much the perfect set up for me. I am a minimalist when it comes to my hair. I like to keep it simple – wash, air dry and go. I rarely use a flat iron, curling iron, blow dryer or even hair spray.  The only thing I usually do aside from washing and air drying is to add an oil or serum to…
