Selena Gomez's Hair at the MTV Movies Awards

Did you watch the MTV Movie Awards last night? Selena Gomez turned heads on the red carpet with a sparkling gold beaded mini dress (not sure I am a fan) and an equally bold hairstyle.

Here’s how you can recreate this look from Selena’s hairstylist, Marissa Marino of the Nine Zero One Salon, using UNITE Hair Care: (more…)

Oil Can Do More Than Condition Your Hair: Garnier OLIA Hair Colour

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

OLIA by Garnier

Every four to five weeks, I peer into the mirror and sigh. Grey hairs. And I’m not talking one or two but an explosion of grey waving at me in a heinous fashion. Sigh.

I’m 42 (and ¾) and I’ve been colouring my hair for almost (cough) 30 years. Wow. At the beginning, it was to drive my mother crazy: pink, white, black…but now it’s to cover up the grey and brighten my dull locks too.

Any woman who professionally colours her hair in a salon knows that it is very expensive. Last time I went, it cost $200! But what is a gal to do? She has to cough up the cash to look purdy.

While watching TV, a commercial for a new at-home hair colour came on—it was sexy and who calls a commercial for at-home hair colour sexy? The product was OLIA by Garnier, and costs less than $15. It piqued my interest. And then coincidently, I was contacted by Garnier to try it out. How could I say no?

OLIA is the first ammonia-free permanent at-home hair colour powered by oil. Enriched with four flower oils, the formula penetrates the hair fiber while maintaining its natural levels of lipids and amino acids. The result? Brilliant, dimensional colour and softer, shinier hair.

The first thing I noticed when applying this product was the scent. Instead of the usual ammonia stink, I was inhaling an appealing fruity and floral fragrance with notes that include lime, pear, jasmine and amber. Fancy, right?

Next, I enjoyed holding the tear-drop shaped bottle. It was comfortable and the slim nozzle was great for easy application and controlling exactly where I wanted the product to go. And the formula was thick and creamy—so no fear of it dripping all over me, or my bathroom. Nice.

After a comfortable 30 minutes (no burning scalp with this product), I washed the product off to reveal rich colour, and softer, smoother hair—and no grey! It was almost like I had been wearing a conditioning mask.

I’m now a sassy redhead and loving my hair. I will definitely be using OLIA again.

I Won’t Eat A Cucumber, But I’ll Put It In My Hair

Yes To Cucumbers Color Protection Shampoo and Conditioner

It’s the truth!

For whatever reason, I am just not a fan of cucumbers. I won’t choose to cook with them, but if they land on my salad at a restaurant, I won’t freak out–unlike a tomato…don’t ask. (more…)
