Summer is here along with warmer weather and if you live in Southern California, no rain and drought conditions. So warm weather can wreck havoc on your skin and hair. Lots of sun exposure is drying to your skin and hair and it’s really important to protect them. So here are a few of my favorite products for hair and skin that will keep you looking your best through the hottest months.
Give my Favorites a try…..  -Valerie

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation $36
I love the Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation powder foundation. It is a buildable foundation made from Amazonian Clay with no talc. That means it doesn’t get ashy looking on tanned and darker skin. It’s a loose mineral powder with a cool container also keeps the powder contained and allows you to use just what you need. It’s also perfect for sensitive skin as is formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfates and without gluten.

Infusium 23 Moisture Replenishing Shampoo $6, Conditioner $6 and Leave-in Conditioner $8

Infusium 23 Moisture Replenishing Shampoo $6, Conditioner $6 and Leave-in Conditioner $8
I have been using Infusium 23 Leave-In Conditioner for years on my clients. It’s a great instant and light overall conditioner that works well on all types of hair. Now they have a couple of a new shampoo, conditioner and leave-in for adding moisture to the hair that are even better than the Infusium I used back in the day.
The Shampoo is specially formulated  with moisture-preserving ingredients that penetrate deeply, gently cleanse and condition your hair from the
root tip.
-The Conditioner is rich with intensive hydrators and shine boosters and enriched with Pro-Vitamins, proteins and amino acids, it restores hair with
essential moisture.
The Leave-In Conditioner instantly detangles wet or dry hair adding essential moisture and it’s light enough for everyday use. Dry, moisture-
deprived hair becomes soft, silky and deeply fortified.

 

 

Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Moisture Mist  $12

Paul Mitchell Awaphui Moisture Mist¸  $12
This is another old-school product that I have been using for a long time. This moisture mist is great for skin and hair. Works to cool a sunburn and adds moisture to dry skin and hair. Lactic acid and Hawaiian awapuhi provides deep moisture and enhanced shine. Spirulina and plankton extracts rich in amino acids and vitamins make hair soft, hydrated and silky smooth. I also use this spray on my makeup brushes after I clean them to keep them soft and conditioned.

When I was a kid I loved playing with dolls. So, of course, my favorite doll was a Barbie but I have never owned one. My sister and I had different dolls that weren’t as chic but had lots of long hair. The best part for me, was styling their hair and I never cut any of the dolls hair and they were never beheaded.

Back then there wasn’t much choice in skin colors and hair textures but we had great imaginations and didn’t let that affect us too much.

So, when checking out Pinterest lately, I was so surprised to see how gorgeous and life-like the Barbie style dolls are. I love the current hair colors, hair styles and makeup looks and the variety of ethnicities is a refreshing sight to see.

Here are some of the fabulous dolls that caught my eye…..

 

This is the Barbie I remember wanting back in the day…..
