Make Her Up introduces the heavenly U Luxury Shampoo & Conditioner!

Make Her Up wants to share with you the exciting new launch of UNITE’s U LUXURY collection!

Suitable for all hair types, even color-treated hair, the newest additions to the U LUXURY collection – a decadently formulated healing shampoo and conditioner enriched with Crushed Pearls, Organic White Honey and Pure Argan Oil. Derived from freshwater pearls, Crushed Pearl has long been renowned for its healing powers and has been used in ancient medicinal treatments around the world. Rich in calcium, magnesium and amino acids, it delivers the essential minerals that nutrient-deprived hair craves.  Rare and utterly exquisite in texture, Organic Hawaiian White Honey is harvested from a single forest of Kiawe trees, and is celebrated for its intensely moisturizing benefits.

I’ve had the opportunity to try this new collection, and I really love it. My hair is so finicky, especially in the winter. These products really make my hair feel and look amazing!

U LUXURY Shampoo ($34.95): A luscious blend of hydrating, protective Crushed Pearl, fortifying Hawaiian White Honey, softening Pure Argan  Oil and gentle, Coconut-derived cleansers, this sulfate and paraben-free shampoo provides a creamy lather that doesn’t strip hair of moisture or cause buildup. Developed with Panthenol, a botanical extract rich in Vitamin B, it adds vivid shine and weightless volume to hair, while strengthening and invigorating it.

How to use: Apply to wet hair, lather, rinse and repeat as necessary. Follow with U LUXURY Conditioner.

U LUXURY Conditioner ($38.95): This rich, creamy conditioner features a potent fusion of Crushed Pearl, Hawaiian White Honey and Pure Argan Oil, in addition to deeply nourishing Shea Butter, and Apple, Orange, Lemon and Sugar Cane extracts, which seal the hair cuticle to lock in moisture. Hair is left looking fuller and shinier and feeling softer and smoother.

How to use: Apply from roots to ends. Leave in for 1-3 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

U LUXURY Shampoo and Conditioner are available at specialty salons nationwide and at Unitehair.com.

Introducing Peter Lamas Naturals Wheatgrass Purifying Shampoo & Conditioner!

This all-natural shampoo and conditioner duo uses wheatgrass, one of nature’s most effective and gentle cleansers, to help remove the excess oil, residue and debris that appears after a long night out. Fruit extracts amp up the residue removal too, and help to cleanse product build-up from last night’s hairstyle – whether it’s a fresh blowout, curls or a complicated updo.

I’ve tried this shampoo and conditioner, and I love it. It seems almost concentrated, because you only need a very small amount to cover your whole head! I love the feel of the shampoo, I love the smell of them both! They are completely natural, and purely heavenly.

The Wheatgrass Purifying Shampoo & Conditioner each retail for $18 and are available at www.peterlamas.com and specialty beauty and health stores nationwide.

TouchBack has just solved my constant roots-problem.

I’m ashamed to admit what I’ve used UP UNTIL NOW for my persistent roots. Those would be GRAY roots, if you must know. I have brown hair, naturally, so my lovely gray hair shows ever-too-well, just a couple weeks after I dye my hair (which I do myself, 6N – thankyouverymuch!). Okay, up until now I’ve used eyeshadow on my gray roots. Honestly, it works pretty well, but it doesn’t last. It will wear off, fall off, fade away, however you want to say it – after a couple hours. But if I’m in a pinch, eyeshadow it is! Well, I’ve got a new product that has saved all my brown shadows!

Stretch The Time Between Colorings…The Easiest Touch-Up Ever! TouchBack’s marker delivers the perfect amount of color…continuously. The Fiber Flow applicator applies real temporary hair color to gray roots…precisely. TouchBack is the fastest touch-up for gray roots. Dries in a minute. Won’t flake or rub off – even after brushing.

Real Hair Color…Bonds To The Hair! TouchBack actually bonds to the hair, blending beautifully with permanent hair color for a totally natural look. (Unlike hair mascaras, crayons, gels and powders, which dull the hair and flake off when brushed. TouchBack’s formula uses certified hair colors, but without harsh chemicals – no ammonia or peroxide – so, it’s gentle on your hair.

Directions:

The TouchBack marker should be applied to dry hair. For resistant gray hair, hold the marker on the hair for a few seconds to deposit additional color. Mousse, gels and other styling products may be used prior to applying TouchBack, and hair spray can be used over it. TouchBack includes a special comb for use at temples and hairline. The comb acts as a skin shield for those areas. Slide the comb under the hair, as close to the scalp as possible, then apply TouchBack. To remove TouchBack, simply shampoo out.

Seriously – I LOVE this. I will use this probably quicker than most people, because at 35-years-old, God has blessed me with about 50% gray hair.

Jonathan DIRT – Texturizing Paste

“I love the way hair looks and behaves the day after washing. It has great manageability and sheen. Dirt gives you the day-after effect simply, without hassle. Mold, chunk, separate, texturize. Have fun.” – Jonathan

This non-greasy, non-sticky water based texturizing paste infused with Lemongrass Essential Water adds manageability. Sweet almond protein helps repair all types of hair. White tea, almond, horsetail and nettle extracts nourish, stimulate and condition. A potent antioxidant blend of natural plant botanicals combined with a UV filter help protect hair and prevent color fading. No mineral oil, synthetic colors, DEA or MEA.

Directions:
Rub a small amount in your hands until it liquefies. Simply work into dry hair and style to desired effect. Can also be applied to damp hair.

I’ve used this product a couple times, and I love the effect! It only takes a teenie tiny bit to see results. You put a small bit in your hands, and it turns into a liquid after you rub it! You put it on your damp hair before styling, and voila! It helps prevent that color of yours from fading, and also has a UV filer in it!

Love!!
