This or That: Best Product for Shiny Hair
My hair is wavy, very prone to frizz and I have a lot of baby hairs that won’t quit. Lately, I’ve noticed that it’s lacking in the shine department. Suddenly in dire need of shiny hair, I decided to scroll through Sephora’s hair bestsellers to see which products could help. I landed on Kerastase’s Elixir Ultime Oil Serum (which has 4 ½ stars and ranks in at $50) and Amika’s Supernova Moisture and Shine Hair Cream (which has 4 stars and ranks in at $25). A little about the products: KÉRASTASE - Elixir Ultime Oil Serum is designed to add hydration and prevent breakage for anti-frizz shine using a blend of maize oil, procaxi oil, and argan oil. It can be used before, during, and after blow-drying for frizz-free, super-shiny, and hydrated hair. amika: - Supernova Moisture and Shine Cream , on the other hand, is a weightless, conditioning leave-in cream that adds shine, detangles, tames frizz, and protects hair from heat styling. Designed to be used on damp hair, it helps to boost hair's ability to retain moisture, while providing a silky, smooth texture. A heat activated complex restores shine and smoothness to hair. Rules of the experiment: To ensure that the results were the same, I made sure to use both on damp hair that had been washed with the same shampoo and conditioner. I also used both after using Drybar’s Velvet Hammer leave-in, which I always use for frizz and adding a little extra hydration. I also airdried my hair on both days. Results and thoughts: Kerastase is literally liquid gold. It has a lovely, luxurious scent and is thicker than your average hair serum because of its oil-serum hybrid. This not only added a healthy shine to my hair but I also found that it made it feel so soft. I’ve used it in the past on its own and found that my ends were still a little dry and found that it works best with a hydrating leave-in – it mixes well with others, which I love. My hair can be prone to oiliness and I was afraid to apply the product to my roots. To prevent excess oil and shine, I focused application to the bottoms and then applied the last bits to the roots. This worked really well. Overall, it helped tame minor frizz and really added some shine into my hair. I will definitely be repurchasing. Amika’s isn’t my fave. I really wanted to like this formula because of the price, lovely scent and its gorgeously hydrating texture, but I found that it didn’t really do much. I didn’t notice any increase in shine or hydration and felt like my hair remained the same. Like with Kerastase’s Elixir, I have also tried this solo before and didn’t think it was very hydrating and wanted to see how it performed with a hydrating base – it didn’t mix well with the Drybar leave-in and left my hair feeling hard and sticky. Not my favorite hair product out there and will not be repurchasing.

Holiday hair kits ✨
Anyone else get super excited when the holiday kits start rolling into stores? Amika gifted me their Brooklyn Hustle Bestsellers kit. This kit includes: Perk Up dry shampoo 5.3 oz (full size) Soulfood nourishing mask 3.3 oz Supernova moisture and shine cream 1 oz The best part about this kit is it’s only $28. The full size Perk Up dry shampoo just by itself is $25. So for $3 more you’re getting a deluxe size of the mask and a mini of the shine cream. The amika: - Perk Up Talc-Free Dry Shampoo is my second favorite dry shampoo. This is my favorite to use on day 2 or 3 hair as it absorbs the oils really well and leaves your hair super soft and tousled. Instead of feeling texture that some dry shampoos can have (which I do like for styling) it doesn’t feel like anything is in it. I also don’t notice a white caste when using this which I know can be a deal breaker for a lot of people. It does have that signature Amika smell but I don’t find it over powering. I highly recommend this kit for any dry shampoo fiends out there!! The amika: - Soulfood Nourishing Mask one of my favorite hair masks! I use this one about once a week. It has your typical cream mask consistency and a little goes a long way which is nice. It also has that signature Amika scent to it. Thankfully my hair isn’t as damaged as it used to be but I contribute Amika masks to that. I used to not be able to run my fingers through it wet but since I’ve been using this and the flash instant mask by them my hair is so soft and detangles so easily. The amika: - Supernova Moisture and Shine Cream is a new product for me but I have been liking it. I have really dry ends to I’ve been adding a little bit to my ends when I style. It’s really lightweight and not sticky so it doesn’t weigh down my hair which is such a positive when I wear it curly.

Obsessing over amika’s release, the Supernova moisture and shine cream! This product is so versatile in which it can be used on wet or dry hair! For wet hair it acts like a leave in conditioner and also provides heat protection. For dry hair you can apply a little to your ends for extra bounce and shine or use it to tame frizz! Supernova has already become a huge staple in my hair care routine. My hair looks so much healthier and my ends are way more hydrated. This is a must have as we go into the hot months for sure! I usually apply this to wet hair. After showering and brushing my hair I will rub a quarter sized amount in my hands and then pull it through my hair while concentrating on the ends. I find it helps my hair to dry with those healthy looking ends as if you just got a hair cut! PS use the Soulfood hair mask in the shower before applying the Supernova shine cream when your hair is in serious need of a pick me up! This will help restore shine and body

Cute high ponytail for short hair 💁🏻♀️
Summer is here and some days I just can’t stand having my hair on my face! This is my go-to hairstyle for when I want to put my hair up but still look cute and fun! I have medium thick, wavy hair that tends to get heavy so I need to be careful not to over condition it so I’ll often skip conditioner in the shower and just use something to style it and add some moisture like the amika: - Supernova Moisture and Shine Cream which also helps a TON with frizz 🙏🏼 For this hairstyle I just put my hair up in a classic high ponytail, top it off with a scrunchy and curl the hair on the pony with a good, ol’ regular curling iron 🤗 What’s your fave go-to cute summer hairstyle? 💗

A good part can change your face!
Hi! Today I want to discuss face shapes and why I choose to use a side part! My hair: thick, color treated, often needs product to look sleek and frizz-free My face shape: oblong, definitely not round! Pointed chin The before: middle parts don’t look good on my face shape! Since I already have a really long face, having a middle part makes my face look even longer, which I don’t love. Instead... The after: I LOVE parting my hair on the left side, especially deep parts! Most days, I wear my hair down like this, and maybe add a small pin on the right side to pull some hair back. Thus, my face looks more proportional and round, and it accentuates my cheek bones! Whatever hairstyle you feel confident in though, go for it!! This is just my personal preference of how I like to style my hair to give it the most volume and life! amika: - Supernova Moisture and Shine Cream I use this cream to add shine and pat down the baby hairs near the part line. #cheriecreator #cheriepartner
