The Frisky’s Drugstore Beauty Picks

As I’ve mentioned before, I spend approximately 80 percent of my time and income at the Walgreens down the street from my house. I love wandering the aisles of cosmetics, checking out new products, and buying more sparkly eyeshadows and pink lipsticks even though I already own, you know, all of them. I thought it would be fun to ask all the Frisky staffers for their favorite drugstore beauty products, from hair to makeup to skincare. Here they are–all available at your local drugstore, and most cost less than 10 bucks. Check out our picks, then share your own in the comments section. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to Walgreens to stock up…

New Brazilian Blowout Labels Should Scare Us Into Loving Our Curly Hair

New legislation out of California today forces Brazilian blowout products to list their potentially hazardous materials on the label. It’s great news if you’re into staying away from hair products that contain possible carcinogens, bad news if you just want your hair silky and straight and prefer to be kept in the dark about what nasty things it could be doing to your health.

The new labels will inform users that formaldehyde gas is emitted during use, which has been proven in some cases to cause cancer. It’s not only unhealthy for women who use it on their own hair, but also for hairstylists who inhale the product when they use it on clients. Part of the settlement requires companies to hand out pamphlets to salons on how to stay safe while using the stuff.

OK. Can we just accept our curly hair already and stop using this junk? Read more…

Taming The Frizzies? It’s Not A Myth!

Once upon a time, a woman with a thick head of thin hair had a problem. This problem was that every winter, her hair frizzed up like static electricity was running through her veins. She fretted wearing hats. She fretted wearing earmuffs. Winter was quite unpleasant. Then she discovered L’Oreal Professional Mythic Nourishing Oil — a fancy sounding product that is basically just beautifully-scented oil to be patted on the ends of wet or dry hair. To her great joy, Mythic Oil lived up to its name: winter frizzies are now as rare as a unicorn. And woman and her think head of thin hair lived happily ever after! [$14.69, Amazon]
