Wella Shimmer Delight Shine Review October 12, 2012

Today I bring you the Wella Shimmer Delight Shine. I have a texture to my hair that makes it so that when my hair is clean it looks dry. I deep condition, I wash in cool water, I try everything and my hair always looks dull, even when I leave the salon. I have always longed to have the lustrous shiny hair that I see everywhere. When Total Beauty asked me if I wanted to try this, I jumped…I’ve tried everything so I was ready to try more.

And this works! I get my hair in the style that I want and then spray about 3 pumps from arms length away from my head and my hair looks glossy and beautiful. It doesn’t weight down my hair and it doesn’t look greasy. I don’t end up with oily hands, like with some solutions. This is the perfect 30 second method to boost my style. The only downside is that the next day my hair ends up fairly oily looking, not the natural glossy look of the previous day. I like to get 2-3 days out of my hair, and this gives me 1 styled day and one pony-tail day.  The positive aspects of this spray are so amazing that they far outweigh the frequent wash inconvenience.

I have added this to my personal beauty arsenal. I would highly recommend this to anyone who suffers from dry, dull looking hair.

Will I finish the sample? Yes

Would I buy this again? Yes!!!

Kérastase Elixir Ultime – Review April 7, 2012

Today I bring you the Kérastase Elixir Ultime that I received in my March Teen Vogue Birchbox.  This is a hair oil that is intended to leave your hair shiny and manageable. It can be used as a leave in conditioner or it can be used before shampooing as a hair treatment.

I’ve tested it as a leave in conditioner for after my hair has been washed. I have tried applying a couple dots to slightly damp hair and also to fully dry hair. It does leave my hair more shiny, but not more manageable. I also don’t feel like it has any long lasting effects to improving my hair.

This is a nice product but I’m not overly Impressed with it.

Will I buy it again? Probably not, I just didn’t see the real benefit to it.

Will I finish the sample? I’ll still use it occasionally, but I will probably throw it out fairly soon.
