My hair journey. Seriously.

So in this post I’m going to share with you my hair journey and my latest hair tragedy. Because, honestly: is there anything more important than beautiful hair? I don’t think so. I have to admit that I’m really obsessed with hair. I have a thing for smooth, caramel coloured manes. I know people that go crazy for pointy brows, shiny mani pedis or flawless skin. But hair is my jam. It might be because my hair has a history of looking like a mop, being curly when I wanted it straight, and straight when I wanted it curly. Humidity is to my hair what the sinister creatures inside the paralell world are to Eleven. It scares me like hell, but it also makes me fight back. And what do I use to fight back? Everything! No weapon is enough!  I will win this war! (Insert hair flip, obviously) It all started thousands of years ago, when I was a teenager and the world worked without Internet. Just as inexplicably, my hair somehow worked without …

Beauty oils, travel edition

Our first experience with oils goes back to four years ago, when we first used the famous Midnight Recovery Concentrate by Kiehls (check the post about it in baby Slow Pace 2012 here). Just like every other girl, we were afraid of greasy T-zones but soon we discovered that oil not only did not leave any grease trace but also made our skins feel nourished and super soft. Since then, we’ve been using and testing a few oils from different brands. However just a few have secured a place in our beauty bags and just three of them are coming with us in our Summer trips. Since hair suffers so much on the beach, we are taking these cute travel size bottles of the all time classic of oils: Moroccan Oil (in the light version) and the more affordable but still very nice L’Oreal Extraordinary Oil. We alternate both of them, finding the Moroccan Oil perfect to condition our hair after washing it and the L’Oreal Extraordinary Oil better to spray constantly on the beach. Both of …

Frizzy hair?

I’ve always had terrilby frizzy hair but things have gone crazy since I chopped my mane into a medium bob. I used to get Brazilian keratine treatments but sadly the one that really worked wonders for my hair was removed from the market. Apparently it was dangerous for the person applying it. Something about ashtma. Bummer. So I’ve been fighting with hair straighteners for the last few months. Even though my arms seem more toned, I’m exhausted. Good news, though: I’ve recently found Smooth Collection, the new line that Moroccan Oil has launched to help people with crazy hair like mine. Infused with argan oil and argan butter, it strengthens and aligns hair’s natural keratin structure.  It doesn’t deliver like my beloved toxic keratin treatment, but I really like it. And, again, it’s not toxic. I use the shampoo, the conditioner and the smoothing lotion. I have to be honest: it doesn’t make my hair look like silk immediately but it does help to tame my locks. And it smells like heaven. I even don’t use …
