I Am A No-Poo Traitor: A Eulogy For My Shampooless Existence

Welp, I made it a year. The great adventure is over for me. I’ve thrown in the towel. I have used shampoo. I feel like I need to write a eulogy for my no-poo experiment. After all, my original post and followup post about it were pretty fabulously popular for an untested, freelance…

No-Poo Update: Fuck Yeah, Rye Flour

About six weeks ago, I wrote about using skin products that are pH-balanced to the skin on your face (the pH of which, by the by, is 5.5). In it, I had a tiny addendum about the fact that the same science that goes for your face also goes for your hair. It wa…

Hair Dos: 15 Celebs Bringing Back The ’90s Hair Flip

The '90s are my decade. Why do you think I wear so much flannel, make regular references to "90210," and sing "Doll Parts" at karaoke? Because it's forever 1992 in my soul. Anyway, '90s nostalgia is big right now with my generation, probably because we're all hitting our mid-30s and -40s and tired of being cynical…

OMG I Love Your Hair: 10 Styles For Impossibly Thick, Wavy Hair

My hair is wavy and impossibly thick. It looks pretty benign on the surface, but brushing, styling or highlighting it takes eons. Thick, wavy hair is theoretically great, but in practice it's totally dependent on the day and whether my natural texture decides to cooperate. Those twee Pinterest tutorials that require a million little braids, or a delicate…

14 Celebs Doing The Shob, Which Is What I’m Calling The Short Bob From Now On

Remember the lob haircut? That's what the Institute For Creating Unnecessary Hybrid Words* decided to call a bob haircut that's on the longer side, i.e. just past the shoulders. Gwyneth Paltrow got lobbed, Jessica Alba got lobbed, I got lobbed. But, guys, the lob is SO 2013. This year is all about the SHOB, a term…

Girl Talk: The Transition From Hairstylist To Friend

One of the things I lost when I stopped shampooing and cutting my hair was regular hangouts with my former hairstylist/now friend, Maggie. I met her after several bad experiences at Hair Cuttery and Great Clips, where I’d go for a $20 hair cut, say, “Fuck my hair up!” and the stylist would interpret that…

Beauty Test Drive: Sexy Hair’s Caring Is Sexy Powder Play

STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING. I've found the best hair product of the year for ladies with limp locks, like myself. I've always had pin straight, heavy hair, which means it goes flat within 30 minutes after a blow dry. Not anymore. Before I went out this weekend, a friend of mine told me I needed…

Hair Dos: 10 Styles To Save Any Bad Hair Day

Fun fact about me: I find showering really tedious, boring and annoying. Some days I wake up and I just can't.

I remember when "True Blood" first debuted and we got our first glimpse of New Zealander Anna Paquin (then still best known for her Oscar-winning role in "The Piano" years before) as blonde waitress Sookie Stackhouse.
