Scorpio Season: Beauty Products to Keep the Eighth Sign Calm

Welcome to Scorpio season, the time to celebrate the most intense, passionate, and powerful sign in the zodiac.

Repair Hair Damage with Infusium Repair + Renew Hair Care Collection

The things we put our hair through in the name of beauty can be pretty damaging. Hair, of course, can be resilient, as long as you nourish it and repair the damage you inflict. We’ve been using Infusium since it was called Infusium 23 and while we switch out the products we use on our hair (a must to do as hair reacts to things like seasonal changes, overall health, changes in your diet, and other factors), we always keep Infusium in rotation. To repair the damage we’ve done to our hair, we rely on the products from the Infusium Repair + Renew hair care collection.

The Infusium Repair + Renew hair care collection features five products: Repair + Renew Shampoo, Repair + Renew Conditioner, Repair + Renew Leave-In Treatment, Infusium Repair + Renew Smoothing Serum, and Infusium Repair + Renew Leave-In Creme. The collection boasts Argan Oil and Keratin to help build your hair’s strength, elasticity, and smoothness, leaving you with softer, shinier, smoother hair. The Repair + Renew Shampoo formula gently cleanses fragile strands, and the Repair + Renew Conditioner formula helps rebuild hair strength from root to tip.

The Repair + Renew Leave-in Treatment formula coats hair with lightweight conditioners to help mend split ends, tame flyaways, enhance shine and improve hair manageability throughout the day and night. The dual-functioning Repair + Renew Smoothing Serum helps protect wet hair from styling friction and breakage and amplifies shine and smoothness when used on dry hair. The Repair + Renew Leave in Creme features a thick, rich conditioning formula provides targeted moisture to help control frizz and smooth split ends.

Infusium’s salon heritage dates back 88 years. They made a breakthrough in the hair care category in 1976 by introducing their Original Leave-in Treatment formula, which quickly became the “leave-in to believe-in” among both professional stylists and consumers alike. Since then, they have continued to introduce new hair care products to the marketplace creating the next generation of multitasking treatment offerings that combine professional quality with everyday ease for a healthy no-fuss hair routine.

Strengthen your weak, brittle hair with the Infusium Repair + Renew hair care collection, available for $6.97-8.49, at Walmart, Target, and Walgreens.

NaturallyCurly Kicks Off NYFW with Texture On The Runway

It’s a known fact that black women are trendsetters. From our fashions to our attitudes, to our hair, our style is coveted. It was an amazing pleasure to see that unabashed style and celebration in abundance at the NaturallyCurly Texture On The Runway event, sponsored by Sally Beauty. In its third year of celebrating textured hair and hairstyles, the NYFW kick-off event invited more than 700 influencers, media, and VIPs to experience an innovative runway show and to connect with leading textured hair care brands like Aphogee, Jamaican Mango and Lime, and the hair care brands participating in the runway segment. For this event, fashion took a back seat to hair. It was all about the textured hair.

NaturallyCurly.com co-founder Michelle Breyer hosted the event alongside professional hair stylist Monica Stevens of MoKnowsHair, and Sally Beauty Director of Merchandising Karonda Cook. It was an evening filled with not just textures on the runway, but culture and pride on the runway as well. From luscious ‘fros and cascading waves to wild ringlets and tribal braids – Cantu, Carol’s Daughter, Creme of Nature, Curlformers™, Mielle Organics and SheaMoisture headlined the runway show, featuring their unique vision for textured hair. Highlights of the night included each brand’s original interpretations demonstrating their expertise in texture and highlighting the beauty and versatility of texture.

While Cantu brought an amazing series of step and tap dancers rocking the coolest of hairdos, Creme of Nature wowed with elegant brown ballerinas. Carol’s Daughter had 90’s Brooklyn style and hair in full effect and showed that when it comes to hair, you either go big or go home.

Curlformers was highlighted with the absolutely adorable Instagram stars, Anais and Mirabelle Lee; while Mielle trotted out a bevy of golden goddesses who “slayed” the runway from beginning to end.

Last but certainly not least was SheaMoisture brought the house down with textured hairstyle fit for a queen (keep an eye out for their crowning glory “Egyptian crown” hairstyle).

 

We had a wonderful time and look forward to attending again next year. What did you think of these textured hairstyles? Any favorite styles from the Texture On The Runway show?

Smooth Operator: The Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler

Ladies, have you ever thought about the amount of time you spend doing your hair? The amount of time we women spend on our hair in our lifetime adds up to years, and for some of us, maybe even a decade. Wouldn’t you like to cut that hair styling routine time down and use that time for something more useful? With the Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler, you really can. This revolutionary 2-in-1 hair styling tool combines the power of a hair dryer and the precision of a styling tool right in your hands.

Say goodbye to having to dry, brush, then style your hair, and hello to smooth, frizz-free blowouts in no time. Why dry and style your hair separately? With the revolutionary Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler, you are able to dry AND style your hair at once, cutting your hair routine in half. This unique hair dryer is boosted by ionic technology for faster hair drying and a smooth, shiny finish. This one step is all it takes to achieve beautiful, frizz-free hair styles by detangling, drying and smoothing your hair. The Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler boast a large paddle brush, two heating and cooling settings for maximum styling control, and flexible tangle free bristles.

Available at Walmart

If you’re wondering how long does it take, it depends on how wet your hair is and how much hair you have. For us, our damp hair, which is extremely thick, took about half an hour (it will take longer for wetter hair). Because of our hair texture, our hair wasn’t completely straight on the first try but a few more passes and it got straighter. We loved how very easy, lightweight, and comfortable the Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler was to use. Ladies with thinner and shorter hair than ours will fall head over heels with this device (pun intended).

The Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler retails for $49.99 and is sold nationwide at Target, Ulta Beauty, Walmart, Amazon.com, and Walgreens.

Leading Beauty Innovator, Reshma Beauty, Comes to the US

More and more people are adopting natural beauty practices and products made with natural ingredients, with many looking to other cultures’ beauty secrets. South Asia has been the leading innovator of beauty secrets from the beginning of time. We were recently introduced to a range of haircare, and skincare products that use age-old beauty secrets and ingredients the mainstream public is just now discovering. Reshma Beauty products, the finest quality of innovative henna-based hair and skin care products, which has completely blown us away, was founded on the science of natural herbs.

Reshma Beauty products share the tradition of all-natural, green, healthy and safe beauty options that the people of the South Asia region have been enjoying for centuries, with the world. Their wonderfully affordable range of products includes Classic Henna, 30 Minute Henna, Skin Care, Oils, Beauty Soaps, and the newly added Henna Infused Deep Conditioner.

We’ve been having one hell of a time indulging in the various Reshma Beauty products. Two of our all time favorite products are the above Reshma Multani Mitti-Fuller’s Earth Mask, $7.99, an all-natural cleansing and clarifying clay mask that comes from a rock originating from India. A clay mask that works wonders on acne-prone and oily skin and is amazing at removing excess oil. leaving your skin feeling fresh, clean, radiant and toned; and the Reshma Ubtan Exfoliator and Face Mask, an all-natural mask, boasting a special blend of herbs, such as turmeric, that brightens and exfoliates your skin by removing toxins. The Ubtan Exfoliator and Face Mask, $7.99, also helps remove dark circles and bags under the eyes and leaves skin soft, smooth and radiant. Our skin is always left feeling incredibly soft and smooth, like baby’s butt smooth. So soft we can’t stop touching our face.

Another Reshma Beauty product we’re addicted to is the Reshma Turmeric Soap, $5.99, a deep moisturizing, powerful antioxidant and anti-aging bar infused with orange peel, rosemary, and an infusion of various oils, such as olive and coconut oil. Although we haven’t tried it yet (we’re still happily using the Turmeric soap), Reshma Beauty also offers a Rosemary Soap, $5.99, that is designed for oily skin, helps prevent inflammation, moisturizes, tones and rehydrates your skin. There are so many amazing products to fall in love with from Reshma Beauty, such as their Henna Infused Oils, $7.99, available for dry and damaged hair, normal hair, and dry scalp & thinning hair; and their Henna-Infused Deep Conditioning Hair Mask, $3.99, which increases moisture and repairs hair damage.

Hair product lovers and all colorists will find themselves weak to the Reshma Beauty’s Classic Henna, and 30 Minute Henna Hair colors ($7.99 each). These 100% Natural Henna semi-permanent hair colors contain no ammonia or peroxide, the henna not only conditions your hair as you’re coloring it, it also protects your hair from the sun and dirt. We haven’t tried it yet but we’re dying to try the Natural Midnight Blue. Our aunt used the 30 Minute Natural Black and she loved the results, noting her hair was left with a variety of deep rich tones that still looked very natural.

Reshma Beauty is named after its creator, Reshma Dordi, a former Miss LA India, director, and producer who created and maintained this leading and in demand henna beauty business in the South Asian market for over the last 20 years. Reshma Beauty is ready to introduce their innovative haircare and skincare products to the US market, especially as we beauty lovers are straying further and further away from chemical-based beauty products
