Oily hair ??

Anyone else having crazy oily hair this winter ? When I say  " winter " that is very mild here in California ;) Howeve, anyone that knows me, knows I only like to wash my hair every 4 days or so. The last few months I cant go more then every other day. Super depressing. Seriously such a hassle, and more heat stress on my hair, more time that I don't have *wah wah wah *

Trying this tomorrow. Pretty please Davines help me out here #c'monHairgods

Dry scalp ?

Now that its getting colder, are you getting a dry scalp ?  Typically with the weather change it sends some of our skins into freak out mode. 

I know my scalp tends to go dry around once or twice a year. I have tried MANY, MANY shampoos and remedies and the only one recently I have found that works is the  

Redken Dandruff Control Shampoo

I have heard amazing things about a specific line in my favorite Davines line. I personally have not tried it but thought I would mention it: 

Davines Purifying Shampoo

As you all know I typically use dry shampoo at least 2x a week. I find now with the dry weather I can't use dry shampoo as much. If I wash more often to not get the product build up on my scalp it actually helps. Also washing more frequently in the fall/winter will cause your scalp to produce more oils, which always helps with dry scalp. 

Last and not least, make sure you are eating healthy, good food. Foods such as walnuts, flaxseed, spinach and salmon have a rich omega-3 content. The natural oils that keep your hair and scalp hydrated will thank you :)


What is Sea Salt Spray ?

 I get asked often what "exactly" is Sea Salt Spray ? I'm sure people ask me this question since I use it at least 2-3x a week. Sea Salt Spray is MANY different things for many different hair types. It is a wet spray that:

Sea Salt Primer

Sea Salt Primer

- For curly hair: gives hold to the curl and maintains frizz - For straight hair: spray at roots, followed by a blow dryer will give volume and texture - For wavy hair: give texture and hold. Think beach waves - For straight hair like mine that I curl: amazing texture and slight hold

So if you like your hair "stick straight" with no volume, then this product is not for you. For the rest of you I guarantee if I could get my hands on your hair and style it right you would love it !!

Now lets talk brands; my two favorites are Davines [ No. 14 ] Sea Salt Primer and Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray. Both of these have a gritty feeling to it which gives you that beachy wave feel and look. The other two I have tried are Alterna Bamboo boho style waves and Awapuhi sea spray. I somewhat liked these two but not as much as Davines and Bumble.

Who doesn't want to feel like a beach babe with flowy sexy hair ? I do ;)
