A Random Hair Staple - Detangler

I've densely highlighted my hair for years. I actually just decided to go light brown (all one color) but the new color is not sticking to the blonde highlights so I'm kind of two-toned right now. Bleach is really damaging to your hair so being gentle with it when washing, brushing and styling it is key.

I use the Wet Brush and the Tangle Teezer to make sure I am ultra kind to my wet and extremely tangled hair. You can use them together or individually. I find that with the Tangle Teezer alone it can take a while to get through the layers of hair, which sometimes I just don't have time for, in all honesty. I'll often start with it to really loosen things up and finish out with the Wet Brush to get some scalp stimulation. I use both on dry hair too, in case you were wondering. The Tangle Teezer makes my hair feel so soft when I use it on my dry hair, but if I brush for too long, it'll cause static. 

Probably the most important thing I do is use a detangler. There are many creams and sprays out there, but I found one at CVS a long time ago and the same bottle is going strong. The Shea Moisture Ray Shea Butter Extra-Moisture Detangler (with Sea Kelp and Argon Oil) has been amazing. 

I even pictured how much I use for my longer hair (it reaches my bra strap on my back, for reference) because I wanted to emphasize how this large bottle would keep for a long time. I use it every time I wash my hair and I've had it well over a year. It can be a bit pricey, but if you wait for a good sale or a coupon to come through CVS (and utilize your ExtraBucks!) it's not a huge investment. And by pricey, I mean like... $13-16 depending on your area. I can't remember what I paid for this but I know I picked it up because it was on sale. 

This is safe for color treated hair and is sulfate free, if you're worried about it. Sometimes, when I want an extra moisture/shine boost, I'll add a pea size of argon oil to my regular amount of detangler and mix it together before applying to my hair. 

I love this product and if you use it/try it let me know if you love it too! 



Psst. This is not a sponsored post. I paid for this product with my own money a long, long time ago. I just love it!

Physicians Formula Eye Enhancing Extreme Shimmer Gel Cream Shadow

When Tati from Glam Life Guru reviewed these I knew I had to have them. They are gorgeous! The extremely long name is not lying when it says they are extreme shimmer. I swatched them for you below. Unfortunately the eyeshadows don't have individual names. The lightest color is very glittery but actually looks really pretty on top of the eyeshadow. It's the only one I used, I put it on the center of my eyelid to catch the light. 

These are really gorgeous. The best way to use them is with your finger. I haven't found a brush that works well. I can't wait to use these all in a look! I just need to play around with them a bit more so I know how to make the most out of them. 

Have you picked up any of the Physicians Formula line? They have so many new products out!
