By this time, I'm sure you've been hearing these three letters buzzing around your social media feed. What's the deal with hemp and CBD, anyway? What is it? What does it do? THC is illegal (in some places) and CBD is legal, so what's the difference? I am fascinated by holistic and naturally sustainable beauty alternatives, so of course I had to dive in and do some research. If you're curious about this new game-changing super oil then stay tuned, because according to what I learned, it's more than a passing beauty/health trend.
Whether you're a seasoned colorista, or taking the color plunge for the first time, research is always important when thinking about changing your hair (so reading this blog is a step in the right direction). Here are some uber-important points to consider before you hit the salon (or the bathroom sink if you're a DIY diva).
We've all seen those Pinterest perfect hairstyles with flawless color and trendiest cut. But when it comes to hair, the trends are most definitely not one-size-fits-all. A good hairstylist will be able to point you in the right direction if you're looking to try a new style or color, and give you honest advice on what will suit your look and lifestyle the best. It's great to have an end result in mind, but allow your stylist to offer advice and even take the reins on some styling decisions. Trust them, they are professionals and want you walking out of the salon looking FABULOUS!
About two years ago, I decided to take the dive and do an icy silver pixie cut. I loved it, truly. But I am constantly trying to change up my style, and unfortunately with hair, its not so easy to bounce back and forth from 12 inches of long locks, to 2" messy spikes and a completely shaved undercut. (unless you've got some extra cash flow for hair extensions). With my recent move to Salt Lake City 6 months ago, I decided it was time to finally commit to growing my hair back. I would endure the awkward mullet, the baby 1" point tail, half of my head being uneven due to the undercut, the whole journey of growing a pixie, in my opinion, was NOT glamorous. Not to mention the breakage I had from damage that was preventing strength in my hair follicles. Cue my saviors: Sugarbear Hair Vitamins and Olaplex.
OK, We all know New Years resolutions are lame. Clichés of weight-loss, keeping our rooms clean, and hitting the gym slowly diminish as the month drip past January. Instead of condemning my changes to failure by calling them resolutions, I have been taking careful steps the past 5 months toward a cleaner lifestyle. One of the biggest lifestyle changes for me was adopting a vegan diet, and remaining conscious of the things I am putting in my body everyday. Then it occurred to me that this clean lifestyle could apply to more than what goes in my body, but also the products I use outside of my body as well.

In early television, (think I love Lucy era) "I have to wash my hair" was the trope many women in the mid century used to get out of activities or commitments they weren't particularly interested in. Now with dry shampoo, this excuse is so yesterday...or yester-year! Dry shampoo has tons of benefits, even if ditching unwanted obligations isn't necessarily one of them!
