Lost’s Emilie de Ravin at the Monique Lhuillier Salon opening in Los Angeles, October 10

I love that she chopped all her hair off! It’s adorable, and looks soft and shiny!  Which makes me think of my latest purchase – and I must share! I finally got off my butt and bought a diffuser for my blow dryer – and what a HUGE differance that makes!

Most diffusers are universal – so they should work on any dryer.  They are an inexpensive way of getting beautiful, curly, non-frizzy hair every time you blow dry!  I picked mine up at Trade Secret – but I’m sure any beauty supply store in your area would carry them.

Here’s a little Diffuser 101 for ya:

Assuming you want curly hair… Apply your preferred curl-enhancing product. Attach the diffuser to your hair dryer, turned on to low. Instead of scrunching with your hands, let the diffuser physically do the ‘scrunching’ for you. Pile a section of hair into the diffuser, ‘scrunch’ it towards your scalp, and hold it there for 10-15 seconds. You likely want the air flow going up, angled away from your head. Repeat until hair is nearly dry. Resist hand scrunching. Let it finish trying on its own. Important: do not touch. Let it dry completely. The curls are setting and touching it now will disturb them.

I found one on Amazon…if you’re interested, you can go here to buy it! $20.00.  Mine was only $10.00 so I know you can find them cheaper!

It’s truly magical

So I have always read how great Glossing cream is but I still wasn’t sold on it. There are so many “great” products out there and since I am not independently wealthy I have to carefully choose my items to try. Well our Makeherup readers convinced me to try Diorshow mascara and though I had sticker shock at the counter I will never look back it truly is amazing. So Finally I have tried Frederic Fekkhai Glossing Cream and I have to say I Love it.

There are millions of smoothers, glossing creams and oils on the market and I have tried many of them but this one is just amazing. I have naturally curly frizzy hair and most smoothers work for a bit then my hair wins the war and I’m back to the friendly lion look. I was surprised how soft and smooth and frizz free my hair was after using glossing cream and it keeps it that way all day! I am a stay at home mom so my hair gets put in a bun or ponytail most days. After using this product I have actually started drying and styling my hair (some days) I just love the feel of it and can’t stop touching it. So the moral of this story is you have to try Frederic Fekkai glossing cream if you hit a Sephora store they even have a smaller trial size tube that sell for about $10.
