Korres Nourishing Almond and Linseed Hair Mask

korres nourishing hair mask

Summer, highlighting, heat styling…. just a few of the many ways I overwork my poor hair and am left with dry ends and split ends.  Now with the cooler, drier air coming my hair really needs a bit of TLC. I have been using the Korres Nourishing Almond and Lindseed hair mask for some much needed repair work. The formula is a bit thicker than conditioner, but still light enough to spread easily.  The mask smells amazing the warm, sweet almond scent smells great while I’m applying it and leaves a great almond scent in my hair that I can’t stop smelling. So good!

After shampooing I work from the middle of my hair down to the ends and I like to leave it on for 10 minutes. When I have the time I wrap my hair in a cap and let the mask sit for 20 minutes or more while the heat helps it penetrate deep into my hair. I have been using for two weeks and love the results. Not only are my ends looking healthier and more hydrated my hair has also has a great shine. And unlike normal conditioners the mask leaves my hair soft and smooth for days after using it. Great for before a blow out or heat styling to get the most from your style.

Introducing Patone Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid!


Have you been seeing Radiant Orchid everywhere you turn? I’ve seen it in fashion a LOT lately, and have heard a lot about it. It’s the color of the year, so says Pantone (and just about everyone else).

Who is Pantone? “Pantone LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of X-Rite, Incorporated, is the world-renowned authority on color and provider of color systems and leading technology for the selection and accurate communication of color across a variety of industries. The PANTONE® name is known worldwide as the standard language for color communication from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer.”


Well they have declared Radiant Orchid as the color of the year, and in doing so have teamed up with Sephora to launch a line of makeup products in the beautiful color!
