Happy New Year, my darlings! I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday break with family and loved ones! I know that I did! It's been 15 years since I have been able to spend Christmas and New Year's with my family so you can imagine just how happy I am! The Holidays passed by in a haze of cuddles and fabulous food and good old-fashioned R&R. I did take a little break but I couldn't stay away from you all for too long! I hope you found my gift guides useful when spreading the Holiday magic but now when gifting is all taken care of, I'm ready to help you treat yourself! Time to share help you spend some of those Holiday gift cards and cash, right?! Today, I'll be featuring a new-to-me brand, a fabulous hairstyling tool and an equally fabulous hair care product from HSI Professional to make your life a little easier in 2017!
HSI PROFESSIONAL Argan Oil Heat Protectant for Hair ($19.99)
Get the vibrant, silky, shiny and healthy styles you've always wanted without damaging your hair. HSI’s argan oil hair heat protectant is a weightless mist meant to be used before heated styling that protects the hair to heat exposure up to 450º F. This light thermal protection spray can be used as a conditioning serum for optimal styling and finishing results. Infused with highly concentrated antioxidant-rich argan oil and shine-boosting vitamins, the argan oil heat protectant hydrates, detangles, speeds up drying time, boosts shine and creates a nourishing protective barrier between your hair and high heat styling tools, leaving you with healthier, smoother and more manageable hair every time.
Our professional argan oil heat protectant is:
- Sulfate-free, phosphate-free and paraben-free
- Not tested on animals
- Proudly made in the USA
- For Natural hair and Human hair extensions
That's why I really like argan oil in my heat protectants--it protects my hair while still being light and super absorbent. The nozzle and bottle allowed me to lightly spritz a fine mist of the protectant all over my long hair while wet and coat it evenly. Once styled, my hair felt so soft, so manageable and not at all weighed down. Overall, a huge thumbs up from me!
HSI PROFESSIONAL Glider Heated Straightening Brush ($79.99)
The Glider Straightening Brush features an ionic ceramic tourmaline-infused hot plate that uses 4 HeatBalance® microsensors to regulate the temperature and evenly distribute heat so that fewer passes are needed through your precious hair.
That’s the best way to get frizz-free silky results that shine while protecting your hair cuticles from overheat exposure. Plus, the plate heats up in seconds so you don’t have to lose any time while adjusting the temperature setting via the digital display between 350-450°F to suit your particular hair type and texture
- Heat Balance Infrared Technology
- Ionic Ceramic Tourmaline-Coated Plates
- Heats Up in Seconds
- Temperature Control (350-450F)
- Auto Shutoff Safety Mode
Personally, I have never been fond of traditional straighteners. While I do have some major frizz issues going on with my hair, I find that traditional straighteners do too good of a job, leaving my hair flat and honestly, pretty lifeless. Not great for my already round face. So, I prefer easy, soft waves or straight hair that still retains some volume.
This brush is perfect for that! I have tried a similar brush from Amazon but found it quite heavy and cumbersome to work with. When you have hair as long as mine, that translates to a very tiring styling process. This brush is not only quite light but it left my hair soft and straight, with enough volume that it didn't fall flat. Plus, I have used it to give me some soft waves when straight just wasn't what I wanted. My only quibble is that it isn't dual compatible which means it does not work outside the US. Hence, I gifted it to a friend when I moved away. Sadness on my part but I think she will really enjoy it! If you haven't tried one of these brushes out yet, I definitely recommend giving this one a whirl this New Year!
