Mitch Stone Texturizing Spray Review

Mitch Stone Texturizing Spray

While getting my hair done at the hairdresser, I read an article that Mitch Stone recommened using Texturizing Spray if you want to add more volume to your hair. So, after Mitch Stone Texturinzing Spray arrived in the mail, I was anxious to try it out. I’m sure you’ve heard of Mitch Stone as he’s been in the business over two decades. He’s an acclaimed hairstylist who works in film, television, editorial, advertising and of course, on the fashion circuit. He was part of the Oscar-winning hairstylist team on ‘Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events.’ 

Since it’s being featured, of course, you already know that the Mitch Stone Texturizing Spray is cruelty free. What really intrigued me is that Mitch Stone Texturizing Spray can be used on all hair types. You can safely use Mitch Stone if you not only have normal hair, but colored hair, or fine hair. In addition, you can apply the Texturzing Spray on wet or dry hair. I have used the Texturizing Spray several times already, and love it!

It’s very easy to use. I simply pumped the spray all throughout my wet hair, and while I concentrated it at the roots, I also worked it all the way to the ends of my hair. Then I blow-dried my hair. I loved that it gave my hair volume and texture, but it wasn’t at all stiff. In other words, it not only did not look like I had sprayed a ton of product on hair, it also didn’t feel that way. It left my hair looking glossy, and it did give my hair volume. All that is due to fact that the Mitch Stone Texturizing Spray is enriched with VCompS, a mixture of vitamins (E, C, B3, B5, B6), minerals, and papaya.

Take a look at the above photo. This was taken at the end of the evening (hence, my Hubby trying to find some decent lighting in the house). Even at the end of the day, the Mitch Stone Texturizing Spray gave my hair a beautiful shine, my hair had volume and bounce, and you can see a nice wave was still present. I added an arrow to the photo, just in case! I don’t like when products leave not only an obvious look of product in the hair, but also, when you run your fingers through, you can feel it. Mitch Stone Texturizing Spray was just perfect for my hair. Check out the Mitch Stone website to learn more and find out where you can purchase products:

Katniss Braid Tutorial From Mockingjay Part 2

Katniss Braid Tutorial From Mockingjay Part 2

I’d like to share a Katniss Braid Tutorial from Mockingjay Part 2. Has anyone seen the movie yet? I’m waiting until the Thanksgiving break when my kids don’t have to worry about doing homework! So, even though this is a pretty straightforward hairstyle, the person who designed the tutorial, Wendy Rose Gould, suggests that if you want to recreate the Katniss braid tutorial, you may need hair extensions. However, if you don’t need to add length, just skip to step 3.
  Katniss Braid Tutorial 

If you need to apply cruelty free hair extensions, the first step is to prep you hair by applying a cruelty free hair serum.

The hair serum will tame your hair frizz and make it easier to not only manage, but it will also help create the same shine that many hair extensions have. That way it will blend a bit easier, too.

The second step is to add the hair extensions.

 Katniss Braid Tutorial

Step three is to move your hair to one side of your head.

Step 4: Part Your Hair

Simply part your hair down the center.

Step 5: Fishtail Braid

Now you need to make a fishtail braid (which Wendy Rose Gould promises is not difficult). Divide your hair into two sections, and then drag an outer piece of your hair from one section over to the other section. Pull that tight, and then repeat on the opposite side.

Continue pulling tight as your braid your hair, and then secure with a clear elastic.

All your hair should be draped to one side of your head, and if this is diffucult, use bobby pins. Pull out sections of hair so you have that“piece-y,” lived in look.

You can use a cruelty free texturizer, or more serum to get those strands. Also twist each of these pieces to keep them separated.

 Katniss Braid Tutorial Does it look as beautiful as the photo? Keep practicing!

Living Proof Hair Care Products: Are They the Real Deal?

Living Proof

Living Proof is a cruelty free hair care company that I have been intrigued about since I first read about their entrance as a start up company. Living Proof  first arrived on the scene in 2008 with claims that it had “the first new anti-frizz technology in over 30 years. For head turning, bliss creating, confidence boosting results. We stop at nothing short of products that keep their promise. And the only one who can prove it, is you. You are the living proof.”

Living Proof has a famous co-owner as their spokesperson, Jennifer Aniston, but that doesn’t mean that their products are going to work. I wondered how much science there really is in their hair care line, and so I turned to one of the Experts at The Beauty Brains, Randy Schueller, to help me with my question: [Read more…]

Henna Color Lab info on Sulfates:

Before I write about the Henna Color Lab Shampoo and Conditioner, I want to make sure that everyone knows what sulfates are. This is important to know, whether or not you color your hair!

This is from the Henna Color Lab website:

“What are Sulfates? Sulfates are detergents (lather makers) used in many cosmetic products: shampoos and soaps. The main nasty to avoid is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). Sulfates can irritate the skin and scalp with regular use. Many blame SLS for the rise in dry skin disorders and dandruff problems. The detergents are just too strong for regular use; they simply yank all natural, protective oils from the skin and hair. These detergents are used often in industrial products, and although they may clean the toilet bowl well at the mall, you don’t want them on your skin, scalp, and hair. Additionally, their harsh cleansing power just strips the color out of your hair well before its natural cycle. Use only organic, plant-based shampoos (coconut oil, olive oil, & sunflower seed oil detergents) if you want max color with zero side effects.”

So, check the labels on your shampoo and soaps!!

Henna Color Lab Shampoo and Conditioner

These products are designed to work with the Henna Color Lab products, but anyone, whether you color your hair or not, can benefit from using their Shampoo and Conditioner. That’s why I was delighted to be able to try these two products:

Henna Color Lab

Henna Color Lab Clean Minty Mix Organic Shampoo

You don’t need a lot of shampoo to get great bubbles. That’s really amazing to me because it’s all organic plant-based surfactants (the bubble-makers). I love that it can also be used as a body wash and a shaving cream.  

In addition to being free of sulfates, it also does not contain parabens, phthalates, or synthetics of any kind (that means there are no synthetic perfumes)! It smells great naturally with a combination of peppermint and spearmint essential oil.

Henna Color Lab

Ingredients: cocos nucifera (Coconut Oil)*, olea europaea (Olive Oil)*, helianthus annuus (Sunflower Seed Oil)*, butyrospermum parkii (Shea Butter)*, Proprietary Essential Oil Blend: Peppermint Essential Oil*, Spearmint Essential Oil*, potassium hydroxide, glycerin, guar gum, Aloe Vera*,  rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary Extract)*, citric acid.    *Oregon Tilth certified organic ingredient

Size: 12 fl oz (355ml)  for $12.98 also available in a 2 oz trial size.
There is also a Lavender-Geranium scent available.

Henna Color Lab Minty Mix Organic Conditioner

Just like the Shampoo, the Conditioner is free of sulfates, and does not contain parabens, phthalates, or synthetics of any kind (that means there are no synthetic perfumes)! It smells great naturally with a combination of peppermint and spearmint essential oil.
Henna Color Lab

This was exactly as advertised. It was very moisturizing, and therefore, I no tangles in my hair when combing my hair through. Using the Shampoo and the Conditioner, I felt my hair was left with a nice shine.

Ingredients: Aloe juice*, Lavender*, Roman Chamomile*,  Castor oil*, cetearyl alcohol, stearalkonium chloride, phenoxyethanol, hydrolyzed wheat protein, Proprietary Essential Oil Blend: Peppermint oil*, Spearmint oil*, pro-vit.

Henna Color Lab Hair Dye

In addition to the shampoo and conditioner that are reviewed above, you should check out Henna Color Lab for their hair dye. Not interested in having ingredients such as ammonia, metallic salts, and harsh chemicals, in your hair dye?! Henna Color Lab has all natural, hair dyes. The hair dye permanently bonds with your hair, it doesn’t just chemically coat it.

Below is a photo of the Pure Henna Hair Color. However, there are many colors to choose from for the women’s hair dye, and the same colors are offered for men’s hair.

Men can also use it for their beard, eye brows, side burns, and mustache.

All henna hair dye can be safely mixed if you wish to combine colors.

Henna Color Lab henna is 100% Pure, Body-Art Quality. This is the base for all of their hair dyes. It is super-fine, triple-sifted texture, and the color will lasts for weeks. Did you know that Henna has been a hair color & treatment for over 5000 years?

Ingredients: 100% Lawsonia inermis linn (Rājasthān Select Harvest™ Natural Henna). That’s it. Henna adds sheen and luster to hair and balances out your own natural highlights and undertones.

Cons of Henna Color Lab?

Only downside is the fact that Henna Color Lab sells exclusively online. However, here is their explanation:
“If we sold in retail chains our products would sell for twice the price. By distributing directly to you, we can cut out many middle men, keep costs lean, and still maintain a stable profit to keep sourcing high-quality, all natural ingredients. Most retail chains strong-arm smaller manufacturers with crippling NO-profit margins (online retailers too). As a result, many manufacturers begin to implement inferior, cheaper ingredients to drive down costs—simply to stay in favor with the big chain retailers. Invariably, the product declines in quality and the customer suffers—happens all the time in this industry.”
