Now that there is a bit of heat and humidity in the air, here is a step-by-step to create the ultimate beachy-inspired summer hair, while working with your natural texture:
Step One: Starting on damp hair, apply an argan oil from root to tip. Try U LUXURY Argan Oil ($47.95).
Step Two: Next, either let hair air-dry, or use a cool setting on your blow dryer to speed along the process. Once hair is about 95% dry, spritz a Volumizing spray all over to create added texture. Try UNITE Boosta Spray ($26.25).
Step Three: To complete this look, take a curling iron to smooth out random sections of hair. Alternate curling from the front and the back for a piecier look.
I guess I can’t speak for the whole collection, just the one I’ve tried, Pomegranate. But if the rest of them smell as good as this one does – then let’s call it a day! Amazing! It smells so good, I want to pour it over a bowl of icecream and eat it. Why does everything go back to food? Sorry …. on with things….

I was given an opportunity to try the Silk’n Flash and Go and I was excited to check out the results. I wax, and shave to keep my skin smooth and hair free. But waxing can get expensive so I was interested to see what kind of results I could get at home.
The Flash and Go is really easy to use even for people like me who hate to be bothered with directions. To start my first treatment I just had a shower shaved my legs and dried them. As the kit suggested I started with the lowest energy level since it was my first testing session. I just wait until the lights on the side blink then I push the pulse button. It felt warm on my skin but the sensation left after just a moment. Once I got going I tried to not overlap and work in a pattern across my leg. The best part is no pain! Even with my sensitive skin after my whole treatment there was zero irritation.
To get maximum results, you want to do the treatments every 2 weeks. I am on my 3 round of treatment and I can am starting to see results on my legs the hair seems thinner and to even be growing in a bit slower. The most dramatic improvement is on my arm pits. The hair is nearly gone and even better I can avoid razor burn.
Flash & Go is a really great tool it works on all areas of the body including the face. A lot of the at home machines I researched you could only do certain areas but the Flash & Go can handle your most sensitive areas including your bikini line, upper lip, under arms.. you name it the Flash & Go is ready to get rid of unwanted hair. Now the sticker price might seem high at $299 but when I work out the numbers its a bargain. I spend that much on waxing in just a few months. With the Flash & Go I can do it in my home whenever it is most convenient for me. And with repeated treatments the hair will be gone! If you do laser hair removal the savings with the Flash & Go are even more significant.
The package includes the Flash & Go handheld device, an extra lamp cartridge, instructional DVD and informational starter’s guide that explains everything you need to know about the device.
Silk’n Flash&Go All-Over Hair Removal Handheld Device $299

Especially useful for treating sensitive areas (bikini line) or smaller, targeted areas (upper lip).
Plugs into the wall, eliminating the fear of a dying battery during treatment.
Updated protocol provides quicker results and increased efficacy.
Includes one device unit with narrow lamp cartridge, one bonus narrow lamp cartridge (total 2000 flashes) and instructional DVD.
Not available in Australia or New Zealand.
How it works:
The HPL (or Home Pulsed Light) technology kills the hair follicle and depletes hair growth resulting in permanent hair removal. Now because the light needs to detect the hair, it does not work on dark skin tones. It is best for those who have dark hair but fair skin (like myself).
Does Silk’n Flash&Go work?
Yes. In clinical trials held by physicians, Silk’n Flash&Go was proven to safely achieve excellent hair removal results. Silk’n Flash&Go has been cleared by the FDA for the removal of unwanted hair. In addition, Flash&Go is not required by the FDA to be used with other products.
The ‘Client List’ actress, 34, is pregnant with her first child – and engaged her her boyfriend, Brian Hallisay.
The actors, who previously appeared together on NBC’s short-lived series Love Bites, started dating 15 months ago after reconnecting on the set of their hit Lifetime show. Hallisay proposed in late May, while the two were vacationing in Europe.
Adding to the couple’s bliss is the news that they’re expecting their first child. As Us Weekly reported exclusively on Tuesday, June 4, Hewitt is around three months pregnant. “We’re so thrilled and happy to start a family,” the costars told Us in a statement.
Both the pregnancy and the engagement are a dream come true for the first-time mom-to-be, who has been vocal in the past about her belief in fairy-tale romances. “I think that I could be a really good wife,” the actress (whose exes include Jamie Kennedy and former fiance Ross McCall) said in 2010. “I know that I love being able to give my love out to someone. I know there is somebody great out there for me.”
I had the chance to review the new Whish Hair Inhibiting Gel Swipes, which were shown in clinical studies to reduce hair density by 26% after 28 days of daily use. I love how easy to use, they come in a little package you just tear open and wipe wherever you want to make your hair less coarse.
The wipes have a really yummy pomegranate scent that is refreshing and makes me thirsty for a cocktail. They are really moisturizing I like the way my legs feel after I wipe them. I am 2 weeks into use and I can say my leg hair does seem to grow a bit slower when I am using these.
One of the great benefits of these wipes is using them as post-treatment after waxing to help calm irritation and refresh skin. They are great for travel or in your gym or bag beach bag its a nice light moisturizer that keeps my skin looking good.
