Introducing Nexxus’ new Youth Renewal Line!

Exciting news – Nexxus Salon Hair Care has launched a new collection that combats the signs of aging hair!

I received this line in the mail a couple of weeks ago, and have been working my way through all the products. I like to give hair products a good week or so before I review them, so I can give some honest results – and I have to say these products are really amazing. I love when I find shampoo/conditioner that is GREAT and that I can actually AFFORD. These products fit the bill! My hair feels healthier, looks prettier, and smells better since I started using these products. Seriously, love them.

NEW Nexxus® Salon Hair Care Youth Renewal™ is the first anti-aging hair care line from Nexxus that combats eight visible signs of aging hair including:

1. Volume loss

2. Breakage

3. Less shine

4. Roughness

5. Dryness

6. Brittleness

7. Unruliness

8. Loss of color vibrancy

Formulas, which are infused with our unique VITA-8 COMPLEX™, help improve color radiance, shine, strength and volume, as well as reduce frizz.

Highlights from the Youth Renewal collection include:

Nexxus® Youth Renewal™ Rejuvenating Elixir, $17.99 – This lightweight leave-in treatment helps rebuild hair’s strength while making hair look more youthful, vibrant and radiant in just seven days*. The packaging allows for precise application through a dropper that distributes the product.

Nexxus® Youth Renewal™ Rejuvenating Dry Shampoo, $17.99 – Introducing the first ever Dry Shampoo from Nexxus that helps maintain hair color longer by increasing the time in between washes. The optimized lightweight formula is designed to absorb excess oils without additional residue.

Demi Lovato debuts drastic new hairdo!

Demi Lovato has made a drastic change!

The singer debut a new, shorter haircut on Twitter on Tuesday night. The 20-year-old chopped off her long hair for a shoulder-length cut. Either that, or she just removed her extensions. Who knows these days.

I think the short hair ages her A LOT…. but it is cute. “I love changing my hair a lot — I think it’s fun,” Demi once told the Allure magazine.

What do you think of her new look?

John Frieda styling products I’m loving right now!

Up until I had my first child, my hair was straight as a board. My hair wouldn’t hold a curl – or a perm – nada. It was very frustrating, especially considering I have a sister with the most beautiful naturally curly hair you’ve ever seen. All I wanted was beautiful curly hair! After my first son was born in 2000, it seems like I woke up the next morning with wavy hair. It has a natural wave to it, but I wouldn’t call it curly. I’ve had shorter hair my entire life – and in the last year or two – I’ve decided to let it grow out. Now that my hair is longer, I have the opportunity to do more with it!

I’ve tried rollers, curling irons, many things. And then this John Frieda curling iron came in the mail, and I was really excited to try it out! The picture above is Erin and I out for a girls night, and I used this curling iron – WITH the John Frieda products listed below! The products were amazing in setting my curls. My curls never relaxed – ALL NIGHT!! I know it’s hard to tell in the picture above, but I had beautiful, natural-looking curls.

I was very nervous about using a wand…but this tool makes it easy! It comes with this little glove so you don’t burn your fingers. It’s easy to use, and the results are beautiful!!

Michelle Williams is finally growing her hair out, plus the adorable (and sad) reason why she kept it short.

Michelle Williams has finally decided to grow her hair out, after years of rocking a pixie cut. The Oscar nominated actress, 32, is growing her hair out, according to E! news. “I think I’m ready,” the Oz the Great and Powerful star, whose locks do indeed appear longer, said. “It’s on its way, slowly but surely.”

Michelle admits she’s kept it short longer than she had planned on, because of what a pain it is to grow out. “That’s why I’ve stayed with short hair for so long,” Jason Segel’s girlfriend said. “The mid-stage is insufferable. It’s really hard on your self-esteem.”

Daughter Matilda, 8, is ready for her mom to grow her hair out. “What Matilda would love is for her mom to grow out the cropped hair, though that’s unlikely to happen any time soon,” Williams told ELLE back in November 2011.

What prompted Michelle to cut her hair short to start with? Matilda’s late father, Heath Ledger. “Straight men across the board are not into this hair!” Williams told ELLE at the time. “I cut it for the one straight man who has ever liked short hair and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it.” Ledger died of a drug overdose in January 2008 at age 28.

Now that she’s got a new man in her life, it’s time to enjoy long hair!
