Have you ever wondered if those salon shampoos and sprays are really worth the extra cash? Well, we found out in most cases they are. Salon products generally contain higher quality, more expensive ingredients that are designed to consistently provide more intensive cleansing, moisturizing and conditioning results. It is a rare to find drug store products that contain the high quality ingredients that salon products contain. You can, however, try to match certain ingredients found in the higher quality brands to the cheaper ones.

Using a pop of a bold color always looks great, especially for WTW. Now I’m not talking about color blocking. I’m talking about, for example, pairing blue bangles with an orange bag while keeping your outfit neutral. By using two different pops of color you give your look a fresh spin and make a trendy statement. This is a time where colors are emerging, and we are finding new and creative ways to wear them together without becoming overwhelming.

Black and blue often get a bad rap because they can be so close in shade that it’s sometimes difficult to tell them apart, not to mention that wearing a black shirt with navy pants can come off looking a little drab. Here are a few tips for the right way to pair these two colors:
Accessorize: Say you’re wearing skinny denim jeans and a black sweater. Adding red heels and red lipstick is an easy way to make the black-and-blue look a chic one.
Contrast: When you’re wearing navy with black, you should try to play up the differences in tone. Wearing a white shirt under a navy blazer with a black skirt will help delineate the hues, making your outfit look intentional instead of accidental.
Brighten Up: Opt for brighter and bolder blues like cobalt or sky blue if you plan to pair them with black. The brighter hue will keep your outfit from looking washed out.
We love how reality star Audrina Patridge pairs a dark blue dress with a black blazer, she breaks the look up with a bright waist belt and white bag. Mixing these colors can really make for a sophisticated look.

Many women think that their hair can become immune to their shampoo if they use it for a long period of time and this is a total myth. The reason why many think their shampoo has become immune to their hair is because they feel it has stopped making their hair feel as good as when they started using it. In fact, what actually happens is product build up. This can happen with any kind of shampoo and switching out your favorite for another brand won’t make a difference. There is a solution to making your hair healthy again, clarifying shampoo. Clarifying shampoo cleanses the hair shaft, removing excess product build up; not only from shampoo but also from everything else we put in our hair, giving it a healthy shine look and feel. Pantene Pro v is a great buy for a low price and if you want to splurge a little, Frederic Fekkai has a great smelling Apple Cider clarifying shampoo.
A tip to remember when using clarifying shampoo: only use it when needed, not on a daily basis which can dry your hair out and make it feel rough.
