7 Tried-And-True Body Boosters For Fine, Flat Hair

I used to be obsessed — like, hours-in-front-of-the-mirror fixated — with having the most voluminous hair I could muster. I would load it up with sticky products and blow-dry it into a huge, tangled mass of lion's mane. Disgusting. Those days are long gone, but I'm still a little bit pathological about my desire for…

The Only 2 Products Wavy-Haired Girls Need

I'm usually a little leery of products for different types of hair. Really? There's some magic potion in this foam that's going to turn my poofy locks into a luscious mane? But after years of fighting the subtle wave in my thick but fine hair -- via obsessive flat-ironing -- I finally came around to…

Multi-Function At Its Best

We love multi-function products, but never have we come across a hair product that does the job of 15 other products in one! And that's exactly the reputation of Black 15in1. This hair product supposedly increases shine, hair color retention, diminishes frizz and split ends, and protects from heat styling and UV rays. Plus, Black…

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…

Beauty Test Drive: Living Proof’s No Frizz Restyling Spray

The other day Catherine handed me a bottle of something and said, "Hey, I was thinking you might want to try this for a Beauty Test Drive. Since you're not into washing your hair and showering." That smart-ass is referring to the fact that during the winter I'm not too keen on drying out my…

The Hair Product That Just Might Change Your Life

There are some people in the cutthroat fashion and beauty industry that are just plain scary. In a few harsh circles, the meanest mean girls are adept at out-meaning one another. And then there's Ted Gibson. The Texas-born, New York-based hairstylist doesn't let the fact that Angelina Jolie and Renee Zellweger (to name a few)…

Goat Poop Is The BEST Hair Conditioner

Apparently, poop is all the rage. The newest place to put it is in your hair thanks to Moroccan Oil, a treatment derived from something deceptively clean called "argan oil." In reality, argan oil is extracted from the feces of goats who expel the undigested argan tree pits. After the substance goes through purification processes,…

What Men Wear To Become Ex-Boyfriends

We spend most of our lives being preached at about the horrors of superficiality, about loving people for who they are, not what they look like. It all sounds so nice, but I'm sorry—there are certain fashion sins that are absolute deal breakers. And it's not just about how it looks. You've got to assume…

Open Letter To Angelina Jolie, Re: Zahara’s Hair

Dear Angelina, I commend you for your charity work and for adopting children of different ethnicities. However, I've noticed that you seem to require a little help with grooming little Zahara's hair because you're going about it all wrong. The only hairstyles you or her nanny seem to create on Zahara are two ponytails or…

Back To The ’80s: Mall Hair

Sigh, when can we return to a simpler time when a teased birds nest was all the rage? Back when a few shares of Aquanet hairspray made you rich enough to pay off student loans and it was cool that your hair was always a hot mess. Well, tap tap tap! The guys at Everything

Crave: Moisturize Your Horse Hair

Last night I was watching Blades of Glory and a big joke in the movie was that Will Ferrell's ice-skating character, who is obsessed with his hair, uses Mane & Tail horse shampoo. It's actually not funny. Fashion and beauty editors have lauded the powerful conditioning skills of the brand -- Lucky has included it…
