ORIBE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER

By far, this is my top favorite product line for my hair. Everyone who knows me knows by my work alone. I will always pick quality over quantity – and my hair is no exception to this rule. Oribe hair line is heaven sent, especially if you dye your hair like myself. These products are definitely on the pricier side. However, I don’t mind the splurge, and here’s why. The shampoo formula blends centuries-old healing oils and extracts with modern technology to rejuvenate and strengthen damaged locks from the inside out. Yes I said the inside out! Therefore, every wash revitalizes tired hair, returning it to a healthier, younger state, and simultaneously shields tresses from future damage.

In addition to the rejuvenating and strengthening treatment I get from every wash, I’m obsessed with the scent it leaves on my hair! It never leaves my hair feeling weighed down or dried out. After falling in love with this line, I wanted to try their Gold Lust shampoo. I found this to be the perfect daily shampoo for color treated hair. I have been using this line for years and never has it left my hair color looking dull or faded. Oribe conditioner is just as amazing! For those with dry or damaged hair and split ends, this is what you’re looking for.

 

TEXTURIZING HAIR SPRAY ouai

Like dry shampoo and hair spray had a baby! This ultra-lightweight hair spray builds incredible volume and texture. Its' formula absorbs oil and leaves your hair looking refreshed. Best part – no animal testing! I love recommending this to my clients because it’s the perfect fit for all hair types.

The key benefits are that it builds volume and texture, absorbs oil, and refreshes hair. This talc-free multi-tasker is the ultimate go to product to achieve innately cool model-off-duty hair. The formula keeps hair looking full all day and night with more hold than a dry shampoo.

*Style tip: mist it on dry hair and scrunch strands out with your fingers for a loose, lived-in look. Flip hair upside down and spray for instantly fresh-looking hair. This product is scented with Ouai No. 3 Fragrance, containing notes of Italian bergamot, water lily, and white musk.

6 Foods for Glowing Skin

For eats that let you look as good as you feel, here is the ultimate healthy menu.

I love the idea that what you put in your body can not only fuel your energy and support overall wellness, but also show up in a radiant complexion and flawless skin.

Omega 3. Wild Salmon is one of the best food sources for omega-3 fatty acids and protein. This fish is also known for its dialed-up levels of vitamin D and selenium. Sardines, oysters and mackerel also supply this beauty food. Not a fish lover? One 200-calorie serving of walnuts has 2776 mg of omega-3 essential fatty acids and is a great source of protein and copper, a mineral that supports collagen production.

Coconut oil. Slather it on the skin or suck down a spoonful and glow! Blend up a cucumber in your green smoothie or blend it with a little water or aloe (it didn’t make the list but this is way up there!) and use the fresh cool mask as a pick me up.

Ginseng. This plant extract provides essential nutrients and has antioxidant properties. Use it as an oil mask for a natural toner, or add it to your morning tea.

Turmeric. Add a few shakes to lemon water, add it to protein rub or blend it in a smoothie. Mix turmeric with equal parts honey and yogurt and use as a DIY facemask. This mask moisturizes and exfoliates skin and will leave your face feeling fresh and clean.

Spinach. This leafy green contains a slew of nutrients that support skin health. Sip a green juice while on-the-go.

Lemon. Rich in Vitamin C, this citrus fruit will help your body purge excess water weight and balance the sodium and potassium levels in your cells. Add a slice of lemon to a mug of warm water in the morning to support healthy digestion or squeeze onto your salad when dining out.
