Product Review-Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum

13 Sep

Argan oil, it’s the product mentioned in multitude of celebrity interviews, beauty expert columns, and on beauty bloggers sites. Argan oil, also called Moroccan oil, is the biggest natural ingredient to take the beauty world by storm since the Acai berry. Argan oil is produced from the kernels of the Argan tree, endemic to Morocco, hence its pseudonym Moroccan oil. The oil is touted as being a multipurpose product that can tame frizz, soothe irritated skin, and provide excellent moisture with a single use. Perfect for the curly-haired girls we have on staff so we decided to try Josie Maran’s Argan Oil Hair Serum. Immediately you notice its light scent, a combination of citrus and Earl Grey, and the silky texture of the oil that absorbed into hair easily. The formula definitely weighed down curls creating a smoother, natural look. We also applied it before blow drying and were pleased to see it left hair shiny and soft, not oily. This would be a great product for someone with thick hair or course hair, but use it sparingly if your hair is fine. With such great results we’re looking forward to trying Argan oil on our skin.

The Company says, “It’s the shine of the times! Argan Oil Hair Serum gives instant shine and long-lasting rejuvenation. Subtly scented with geranium and bergamot fruit oils, the ultra-light, never-greasy formula penetrates the hair shaft to seal split ends and deliver intense moisture to each layer of the hair strand. Ingredients include: Argan Oil (aids in hair growth and restores elasticity), Jojoba Oil (moisturizes and strengthens hair), Avocado Oil (nourishes hair and scalp), and Vitamin E (helps to keep hair young and shiny). Your hair instantly looks and feels healthier, silkier and extraordinarily shiny. Also the formula is alcohol free.”

Waterfall Braid Hairstyle

7 Jul

With the summer heat, your hair can be hard to manage. Keeping your hair down can be hot and sticky if you’re spending a lot of time outside, and sometimes a plain ponytail just isn’t enough to quench our thirst for a fun, summery style. We discovered the waterfall braid, which is this cool braided style that’s perfect for day and night, that’s easy to do yourself. The waterfall braid is a perfect summer look for strolling on the beach or a night on the town; people will think you spent hours doing your hair when it only took less than 20 minutes. So forget about throwing your hair up in an ordinary ponytail and follow these step by step instructions on how to achieve this intricate and beautiful look.

Step 1: Begin with dry hair—blow dried, straightened, or even curled. Take the front part of your hair and divide it into three sections and cross the strands, taking one outer sections and moving it into the center, and then repeat with the other outside stand, like with a regular braid.

Step 2: After braiding once or twice, pick up a small section from the top of your hair and add it into the top section of your three braid strands, as if you were French braiding.

Step 3: Braid with this new section in hand by crossing it over to the middle, then crossing the outside strand to the middle. Allow the bottom section to fall. This is where the waterfall begins.

Step 4: Pick up a new small section from the bottom of the braid, underneath where you just let the outer strand fall, and use this new section to continue your braid.

Step 5: Add another section from the top and continue this pattern until you’ve reached desired length. You can continue all the way around your head or do one on each side and tie them together in the back. When you’ve finished your braid tie it off with a small elastic, or use bobby pins to hold it in place.

Step 6: When your braid is complete and held in place you can use a hot curling iron to curl the waterfall strands to achieve a more sophisticated look.

We hope you enjoy this fun summer hairstyle! Let us know what you think and leave us a comment!
