Men’s Good Hair Guide by Dove

Men’s Good Hair Guide by Dove

This is a sponsored post, but as always all opinions are 100% my own. I love Dove products and have been using them for years and am very excited about working with them. 

My man has a few hair issues that he deals with including dandruff. I sometimes even use his dandruff shampoo when my scalp is dry. I hate having a dry scalp because it is embarrassing and feels uncomfortable.

ZPro Salon & Spa Review: Boca Raton, Florida

ZPro Salon & Spa Review: Boca Raton, Florida

Services provided by ZPro Salon & Spa for review purposes only. All opinions are 100% my own.

Zpro is an ultra modern hair and nail salon in the Fountain Plaza (7600 West Camino Real, Boca Raton, FL 33433) next to Asia and The Butcher’s Block. Everything in the salon is ultra modern with the primary colors being white, chrome, and purple. Everyone at the Salon is super nice. I couldn’t get a babysitter that day and everyone chipped in to help so I could get hair and nails done. Tammy Wayne did my nails. I picked Little Brown Dress from Essie for both my hands and toes. I like that there are 2 locations to get manicures. 2 tables are the first floor and 2 other tables on the second. With the 2 areas for nails, and you can choose your experience. The upstairs nail section is a spa experience, and the downstairs is more of a hair salon experience. You get to pick!

SoBlo Blowout Review

I went to SoBlo last week for the second time to get my hair done for a blogger event hosted by Kristen Clark of Living In Color Print. Kristen is FSU Alum and Style Setter for Boca Town Center which is now basically in my backyard. Kristen is a sweetheart! I also met some awesome bloggers like fellow mommy and fashionista, Alyson of The Average Girl’s Guide. Check out beach chic hair last time I went to SoBlo. Also, check out my sister’s very straight hair c/o SoBlo.

The Secret of Straight Hair!

I have been successfully straightening my hair since college when I saw a girl with unnaturally straight hair and I cornered her to ask her how she got her so straight! She let me in on the secret of the Chi! I have bought several Chi hair straighteners since then and they are now being sold at Target. The price has reduced significantly and ceramic straightening with the Chi is no longer a secret. When I was in college and my sister was just starting her teens, I shared the secret with her and my mother. My mom is now getting her hair straightened professionally weekly because her hair is so thick and awesome that it looks good for about a week after she gets it done by a professional. I am definitely jealous of her great hair! I got my day’s hair which is not so bad, but not as nice as my mom’s hair. My sister, on the other hand, got my mom’s thick show stopping hair!

Beach Chic

I have not been to the beach in quite some time since we bought a house with a pool, but that does not mean I should stop looking beach chic this summer! Beach hair waves are so fabulous and I wish I had the energy to do it myself everyday! I have natural waves in my hair, but it’s just not the same as getting your hair done. I love the new era of hair salons where you can go into a salon and completely avoid the hair dye smell and just get a great look for a night out or photo shoot. My friend, Sahily of Pretty In Pigment hosted a blogger party at the local SoBlo Salon where they did everyone’s hair and makeup artists from Neiman Marcus YSL counter came to put the finishing touches on out summer looks!

My first child is on her way and we just recently had a baby shower were I received complimentary Popbands for my baby shower favors. Popband sent me a extra package of Popband to be given away to my readers. Aren’t they sweet!?! The Popbands are awesome! I have been wearing them non-stop since the baby shower. I wore my pink glitter Popband the other day in my ‘How to Wear Statement Necklaces‘ post. The cool thing about Popbands is that they leave your hair kink-free and look way cooler on your wrist than traditional hair ties. There are so many colors to choose from that it makes it easy to match your Popband to every outfit. Start your summer off right with Popband MultiPack in Pop colors: yellow, blue, hot pink, light pink, and purple. Enter to WIN a Popband MultiPack  using the Rafflecopter below.
