Brazilian Hair Straightening Treatment
By Serena Kim | 04/10/2009 - 10:00

Have you heard of the Brazilian Blowout? No, it's not the notorious bikini wax from South America. It’s a new kind of hair straightening treatment that transforms frizzy, curly hair into tresses that are smooth, straight and shiny. Unlike the Japanese Straightening Perm, the Brazilian Blowout doesn’t kill your hair. And the Brazilian Blowout fades out instead of growing out, which makes the re-growth period look more natural.

Does This Really Work: Exfoliating Shampoo

My scalp can feel itchy during cold weather months, and considering we’re still having breezy temperatures in NYC, I decided to try an exfoliating shampoo to treat the area. I used Davines Awakening Oxygenating Scrub Shampoo ($23), a shampoo with tiny jojoba beads to help remove dead skin cells that lead to buildup.

There are several reasons we get dry, split ends. It’s mainly due to heat damage from your straightening iron or blow dryer and chemical damage from dyeing, but the environment can also play a role. Last week, I met Rod Horton, a Mizani Stylist who told me about another reason our ends become ravaged.

Curly Qs: Hair Loss Scare
By Sandra Mariscal | 04/01/2009 - 13:15

Do you ever get scared of how much hair you lose daily or when you detangle? I always cringe when I see fallen curls on my clothes and the load of hair left on my comb after I untangle. I’ve asked several hairstylists what gives and luckily, they’ve all agreed on the reason. It’s common for those who don’t brush their hair daily (like most of us girls with curly hair) to notice more hair on clothes, the floor of your bathroom and everywhere else but the hair brush.
