Beauty Test Drive: LiQWD Hair Products

My hair has become quite dry since I’ve switched to an extra-strength dandruff shampoo, so I’ve been on the hunt for hair products that would restore my hair’s moisture after I used the dandruff shampoo. Since my locs are more “three-dimensional,” if you will, than the average non-kinky or fine hair, I’ve found that most hydrating shampoos and conditioners don’t work because they only coat my hair. So I tried the LiQWD Hydrating Shampoo, LiQWDITY Intensive Hair Repair, and LiQWD Professional Smoothing Catalyst expecting it to have the same results as other hair products I’ve tried.

Shampoo You’ll Love To Lather

We’re such suckers for a good shampoo–and Davine’s LOVE Smoothing Shampoo fits the bill exactly. Released just in time for Valentine’s Day (a totally crap holiday), LOVE Smoothing Shampoo is fortified with prickly pear extract to help smooth and moisturize your desperately dry hair follicles.

For the most part, we’re wash ‘n’ go gals, but occasionally we actually take the time to do our hair. On such occasions that we want to rock the stick-straight look, we depend on this hairdresser-approved flat iron to take us into Cher-circa-1972 territory. The ceramic plate iron heats up to five temperature settings and is suitable for use on all hair types, giving anyone who uses it seriously glossy, pin-straight locks. Over the years, we’ve tested many different flatirons and this one, at least so far, has a permanent spot in our bathroom cabinet.

Bad Haircut Blues: Go Shorter Or Deal With It?

I have a question to pose to the class. Last week, I got a horrible haircut. Now, to say it is The World’s Worst Haircut would be stretching it, but it’s still pretty crappy. How can I describe it for you … think: Donny Osmond meets David Cassidy meets JTT circa 1996. First of all, one should never find oneself in this type of situation because we should all be confident and brave enough to stand up to our hairdressers when they start doing something weird, right? Well, call me a wimp, but I stayed silent as some dude flicked his scissors around my ‘do, which became increasingly mullet-like before my own eyes.

Leave It To Willow Smith To Popularize The Bowl Cut

Breaking: Willow Smith now has a bowl cut. And despite it looking kind of dorky … it’s kind of dorky in an awesome way. We swear: Willow’s at a point where anything this girl touches turns to gold. (Or at least, A+ hairstyles.) One question. How’s she gonna whip her hair now? Maybe this just goes to show that you don’t need to be a long-haired lady to embrace the hair-whipping mentality.

What do you think of Willow’s new ‘do? Cute? Edgy? Or oh dear? [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »
