#HairGoals for the win! Every gal wants a good hair day, the struggle however…finding the right products to get you there! Being a beauty influencer, I have tried multiple brands of hair care products from high end to drugstore brand + each had traits I liked but none of them had the whole package (as silly as that sounds). Luckily I found my saving grace…SheaMoisture!.
I’ve discovered that their products work great on my wavy hair! My hair is not coarse but it does get knotty with my keratin extensions AND it is long, color treated + needs a ton of love, care + attention.
What I love about SheaMoisture is that their products are affordable (I snagged mine at Walmart for under $20!!) but they work as great as some of the prestige brands. I tried the 100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Head To Toe Nourishing Hydration, Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo, Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Conditioner.
All of the products are readily available at my local Walmart store or you can order online and pickup in store too. I love doing this at Walmart because it’s super convenient when you realize you are running low on product and forget to pick them up.
The Curl & Shine Shampoo Coconut & Hibiscus + the Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Conditioner (LINK) have become my new go-to when I wash my hair. They help smooth my hair and avoid frizz, make my hair easier to brush through to avoid tangles + knots from my extensions AND they leave my hair with a shine as if I just left the salon. I washed my hair the day before I curled it and look at how shiny my hair looks a day later!
The 100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Head to Toe Nourishing Hydration is great for when my color treated hair needs a little extra attention. It helps restore and hydrate it after a little too much bleach, chlorine or sun. It also smells delicious (don’t you love when your hair smells so good all you want to do is sniff it all day? Haha :P)! This product is also great to use after washing your hair and letting it air dry. I tend to wash my hair a day or so after I use styling tools on it and I feel like my hair is begging for hydration so I usually wash and condition and then follow up with a treatment like this one. I will allow my hair to air dry in order to give it a break from the heat for little while.

I hate to say goodbye to summer but it’s about time I get ready to embrace fall! With the new season here it’s time to refresh my ‘look’ and that doesn’t just mean my wardrobe, but my hair as well! Over the summer, your hair experiences a lot of damage from sun exposure, chlorine in the pool + of course, your hot tools (flat irons, curling irons etc.). How is a gal to repair her hair without some crazy experience in-salon treatments? Well, I have found a solution – the Dessange Paris Oleo Miracle Collection available at Target ♥
Let’s be real…we are pretty tough on our hair. Between chemical treatments, coloring + styling, our hair needs a little
I have been using the Oleo Miracle Replenishing Shampoo + Conditioner for a couple of weeks now and I can already feel and see the difference in my hair. It feels lighter and it looks shinier — exactly how I like it 🙂A product from Dessange Paris I also have been loving is the Oleo Miracle Replenishing Oil. This oil provides your hair with the moisture it craves without over-doing it – that is really important to me because sometimes with hair oils they make my hair look greasy, but not this one!
Oh J O I! ♥ Fun fact…when I was in college I worked at a hair salon for a couple of years…safe to say I tested out a sh*t ton of haircare brands but one of them that has always been tried + true is Joico! Naturally, I got so excited when they sent me this adorable package featuring their new Color Therapy Luster Lock system which will help nourish my highlights and keep my hair looking flawless all summer long!
It’s a great treatment that can be used as often as you like and it is applied as a pre-shampoo that works to repair and protect damaged or over processed hair no matter how thin or thick! In addition to my newest treatment obsession, I am rounding up some of my other Joico favorites below!
With summer quickly approaching and the temperature heating up in LA, my hair is having a tough time adjusting. Frizz, humidity and oily hair is driving me crazy and I have been testing out various treatments, masks + serums to try and combat mother nature and get shiny, healthy hair without damaging it with hot tools. So…when these haircare products showed up in my mailbox from Giovanni Cosmetics I figured they were well worth a try (and guess what…they are awesome!!)
Giovanni has various lines of products perfect for all kinds of hair and specifically made to target your biggest haircare faux-pauxs. Purchase propecia online hair loss medication from canadian pharmacy. One of mine is that I still need repairing treatments + masks from years of highlighting and coloring my hair (I used to work at a hair salon back in the day — btw crazy to think back in the day was just a few years ago haha! #IFeelOld)
One of my current favorite picks from Giovanni is their Ultra Repair Super Potion Oil Serum. I just put a little in the palm of my hand and start at the ends of my hair and work my way up (to avoid making my scalp oily). It is great for eliminating frizz + it’s even better for repairing dead or damaged ends from me curling it for blog shoots :p
Today is an exciting day in the world of ‘Missy On Madison‘! Not only am I finally re-capping my first ever ‘Lucky Fabb‘ Fashion & Beauty Blogger conference that I attended last week in Beverly Hills, but I am also sharing my gift bag swag with YOU!
One thing I love about being a blogger is awesome goodie bags at conferences, parties and events. Now while I love the excitement of opening and going through my loot, I end up not using half of it because there is simply too many products to use and I sometimes have my favorites I can’t live without! So I figured why not share the wealth and share the swag with my readers 🙂
