Organic Castor Oil by Shiny Leaf


*Organic Castor Oil by Shiny Leaf

There is no need to spend a ton of money on those expensive Eye Lash/Eye Brow serums when you can just use this Organic Castor Oil and achieve the same results!
Actually Castor Oil has many uses beyond helping hair grow.  It also has many therapeutic uses like preventing the growth of viruses, bacteria, yeasts and molds, reduces itching and swelling on the skin, healing fungal infections, can also help increase circulation as well, among other things.
However, Castor Oil really can work wonders on the hair!  Not only can it help hair grow faster but it can help it grow thicker, stronger and make it shinier as well.  I like to do a Castor Oil Hair Mask a couple times a week to keep my hair happy and healthy.  I massage Castor Oil into my roots and scalp and then work it through to the ends of my hair, cover it with a cap and then leave in on overnight.  If I don't feel like sleeping with the Castor Oil in my hair I will wait until I have a day at home and just put it on in the morning and wash it out before I go to bed.  I will also use this Organic Castor Oil on the ends of my hair to help tame flyaways and frizzies!
So, if you've been thinking about spending your hard earned cash on one of those pricey Eye Lash Serum then why not give this Organic Castor Oil a try first?  It even comes with a handy Eye Lash Wand to apply the Castor Oil to your lashes and eyebrows!
The Organic Castor Oil by Shiny Leaf retails for only $12.16 4oz.


You can find this Organic Castor Oil by Shiny Leaf over on Amazon.com...

What You Should Be Using For Healthy Hair - The Hair Dance Collection

I am so excited to be sharing this collection of amazing hair products with all of you!  I've been testing these out for a good 2 months now and I am beyond happy with my results.
The Hair Dance collection is all about natural and chemical free hair care products that helps you maintain not just healthy hair but a healthy scalp as well.
Since I've been using these products I've noticed a definite difference in my hair.  It not only looks healthier but feels healthier and stronger.  I have even noticed that my hair has grown faster than it normally does.  I have only been using these Hair Dance products and a few Aveda products sprinkled in so I know it's because of the products I'm using.
Since the products are formulated with natural and chemical free ingredients they smell and preform a bit different that your typical hair products, in a good way.  I will admit it took me awhile to get used to the Nature’s Treatment Shampoo because it doesn't lather...at all.  It doesn't lather because it doesn't contain any sulfates.  I use other shampoos that supposedly don't contain any sulfates but I still have some sort of lather but with this shampoo I don't have any and that took some getting used to.  If you live somewhere that has soft water you might be able to get some lather but where I live we have hard water which equals no lather.  Now that I'm used to it I actually like it and my hair just feels much cleaner than it did when I was using other chemical ridden shampoos.
All of the other products pretty much act the same as similar products but what they do for your hair is definitely unique!  I love that each product lives up to its claims and does exactly what it claims to do.  I will always test and review other hair care products just because that's what I do but I am officially a Hair Dance convert and will be using their products from now on!

Here is the product line up that I've been testing and LOVING along with their product descriptions...

Nature’s Treatment Shampoo: This botanical based formula gently cleanses the hair without any harsh or harmful chemicals. Very mild soap derived from coconut and milk is gentle even for dry, fine, damaged hair.

Penetrates the hair to soften, strengthen and adds elasticity. This prevents hair from breakage, split ends and dry hair, restores shine. Gives additional nutrition to the scalp and strengthens hair roots. Helps to keep hair moisturized. The benefits of using hair oils have been known to hair specialists for a very long time. Its strong nourishing and restoring effects are beneficial to everyone regardless of their hair type. External factors such as exposure to the sun, salt water, pollution, heat, and the excessive use of hair irons can cause split ends and lifeless looking hair.
Different plant oils have different benefits and act a little bit different depending on hair type. It is important to notice that not all natural oils penetrate the hair. This is why the blend of specific oils provides premium nourishment and protection for your hair. 
The build-up from retail hair products may prevent the oil from penetrating the shaft and improving its condition. It is important to use silicon free products when you are in a process of healing your hair.  Can be used as an overnight treatment for deep conditioning or apply small amount to damp hair after the shower to lock in moisture.

Silky Touch Dry Shampoo: Silky Touch Dry Shampoo is 100% natural and organic. It absorb excess of oil from hair instantly adding the volume and changing the look from dirty to clean.

Blends in very well with any hair color, lasts a long time and only a very small amount of the product needed to achieve great results. It absorbs excess of oil without using chemicals, is gentle, adds instant volume and leaves hair clean and healthy.

The Grip Trio Collection by Kenra Professional For All Day Hold & Style Without The Crunch!


If it's one thing that annoys the heck out of me it's hair that feels like it has a ton of product in it.  You know what I'm talking about.  It's like on those days when you think it's a good idea to use a leave-in conditioner, mousse, styling gel and hairspray.  It sound good in theory but all you end up with is heavy, crunchy hair!  Ugh!
This is where The new Grip Trio Collection from Kenra Professional come in!  I have seriously been loving all of these products.  They are lightweight, provide texture and volume AND they hold all day!
The Whip Grip Mousse retails for $17.00 for 8oz at Ulta.
The Whip Grip Mousse is lightweight and airy, creates a ton of volume all without making hair feel crunchy or stiff.
The Air Grip Spray retails for $17.00 for 8oz at Ulta.
The Air Grip Spray is lightweight, provides 50% more grip to hair and provides excellent definition and volume.
  The High Grip Spray retails for $19 for 8oz at Ulta.
The High Grip Spray provides 24 hour hold that's lightweight while maintaining style and definition.

To create my all day, flexible style all I need is a little dollop of the Whip Grip Mousse worked into my damp hair.  Next, I will let it air dry, but before it dries completely I use my blow dryer on low heat to finish drying the roots and voilà!  I have the volume that I need to create the perfect hairstyle.  Once I've added some curls with my flatiron or curling iron I use the Air Grip Spray to add some texture and definition and sometimes I just stop there.  However, if I really need my style to last I will use the High Grip Spray.  By using the High Grip Spray I know my hair isn't going anywhere but it will still have flexibility, which is absolutely amazing.

The Grip Trio Collection was created in collaboration with Steph Brinkerhoff @hairandmakeupbysteph who is a social media star and professional up-styling educator.  The bridal hairstyles she creates and is famous for are nothing short of awe inspiring.  Knowing Steph creates amazing bridal hairstyles it's easy to see why she wanted to use products that give lightweight volume and texture and that also provide all day hold.  This The Grip Trio Collection does all that and more! Well done Kenra and Steph, well done!




If you have a wedding coming up, whether your the bride, bridesmaid or even just a guest these are definitely the products you want to create a soft, flexible, beautiful all day style!  You can find these and other Kenra Professional products at Ulta and Ulta.com.
