Barber & Fritz Dry Shampoo Puff

This Canadian Made product, Barber & Fritz Dry Shampoo Puff is a must have beauty product and makes for a great little gift.

I have never been a fan of the traditional spray dry shampoos. I either spray too littleย or spray tooย much, and usually it’s the latter. And then there’s the stickiness that comes along with each spray, that I just can’t get used to. I’m sure it works for many, but it’s just not my thing!

However, this all natural magic powder is exactly what I have been looking for. A mix of clay, flours and floral petals, this powdered puff is great to use in between washes and helps add volume and control. It really is a hair game changer and truthfully has saved me many bad hair days. The puff makes for easy use with major control in how much you need and use. It’s as simple as a couple dabs of the puff or by sprinkling the powder and rubbing it in. Plus, it lasts forever, I’ve been running about one per year!

The natural ingredients of French lavender petals and French white clay work like magic. The dried petals are anti-fungal, antibacterial and help in cleaning the scalp and hair without the use of water. And the white clay absorbs oil and impurities, leaving the hair clean and refreshed, while adding a touch of volume. They really work as a killer combo and smell lovely!

You can order online at Barber & Fritz or at my favourite little Queen West Shop, The Cure Apothecary.

Light Blue Shade

Today I am sharing my best kept secret with all you beautiful blondes. I just hope my hairdresser doesn’t kill me. ๐Ÿ™‚ (Sorry Olivia!)

I’m sure many of us can agree that our aim to be blonder can be categorized asย a sickness (comically). It’s that feeling of when our roots start to grow out and we basically think we’ve become brunette and stress on when we can book our next appointment. It’s actually pretty funny when you think about it.

The only thing is, we all hate paying $150+ every 8 weeks to keep that sun-smacked look, plus that $30 bottle of purple shampoo, that lasts like 2 weeks. (Yes, I know it should last longer!)ย Not to mention the time to revisit the salon again and again for that brightening touch up that we live for.

If you feel the pain, you’ll be happy to hear how I have been able to minimize my colour treatment to once every 5 months. And not to brag but when people ask and I tell them this, their eyes pop out of their heads they are so stunned. Granted my colourist does an AMAZINGย job, but I do my own maintenance along the way to help prolong. She might think it’s terrible (I am always scared to ask), but my fellow blondes always ask for the secret, and coincidentally it’s usually the day after I wash my hair using this cheap and cheerful solution.

So here it is – Light Blue Shade Shampoo & Conditioner.ย Yes that is the actual name and brand. Designed for white, silver and blonde hair, this formula will instantly livenย up your blonde when it begins to get aย bit brassy and dull looking.

I don’t use it everyday, but both together at least once a week and alternatively, theย shampooย or the conditionerย coupled with other premium products to ensure my hair keeps strong and healthy looking. Do note that if left on for more than 4 minutes or so (probably depends on each person) you may actually notice aย white purplish tone to your hair. This has happened to me a few times but I’ve still always received compliments and within a wash or two it fades out.

You can find this hidden gem at Shoppers Drug Mart (bottom shelf near the hair colour) or on Well.caย ย for just under $10.00 CAD. Or if you get so lucky you can find it at Walmart for just under $7.00 CAD! It isn’t always the easiest find, so when you do stock up or do yourself a favour and just order it online.

Lighten Up. xx
