You know what isn’t sexy?
Those nasty, white flakes of dead skin that fall from your scalp and land directly on your shoulders for the whole world to see.
Above and beyond being embarrassing, dandruff is itchy and uncomfortable, and an ongoing issue for so many people out there.
We’ve all seen enough Head & Shoulders commercials to know that there are plenty of shampoos on the market for this, but do they actually work and are they worth your money? [Keep Reading]

Did you know that hair can grow on any place of our skin except the palms and soles? On some other places, hair is so delicate that they are almost invisible.
What you may not have known is that the visible hair is actually made up of a substance called keratin, and the hairs you can see are in fact, dead keratin cells.
Crazy, right! [Keep Reading]
Within many cultures, body hair is widely accepted. It is even encouraged…ahem, France *cough cough*
In fact, there are even countries were body hair is seen as beautiful, and even viewed as sexy and sensual.
But here in the western part of the world…not so much.
How to Remove Unwanted Body Hair
As I said, here in the western world, the norm is to remove all of the unwanted body hair (which is most of the body…except for the head!). Society and the media has trained our minds to view body hair on women as, well, gross. [Keep Reading]
As seasons change, so does the way your skin and hair react. I’ve found that warmer climates suit my body better. My hair looks lush, my skin soft and supple.
In the cold, harsh winter weather…well…that’s a completely different story. My hair gets brittle and frizzy, and my skin puckers up with dehydration. It’s not pleasant.
And while I could go on and on about dry skin, we’re talking winter haircare today. [Keep Reading]
If you’re a rabid follower of TBB then you know I’ve been living in Asia for the better part of two years now – Thailand to be more specific.
I knew coming over here that it was going to be hot and sticky, but I didn’t really stop to consider how it would affect my skin and hair.
In my first few weeks here my skin felt parched and itchy from being so dry, and my hair….well, it didn’t quite know what to do.
The temperature was always so hot that the mere thought of blow drying my hair made me sweat – for reals! So, instead I decided to adopt air drying my hair. It’s supposed to be good for it, after all.
I couldn’t have been more wrong. [Keep Reading]
Ok, so it seems like all I’m seeing over the interwebs lately is this shampoo (or lack thereof…) phenomenon called “No Poo.”
To be honest, the first time I saw a post on my Facebook about someone sharing their ‘no poo’ story I was aghast. I mean, really people – no one needs to hear about your bathroom activity.
BUT, then I realized they were talking about shampoo….thank goodness!
You see, we’ve known for a long time that many of our fave shampoo brands are full of nasty ingredients. Chemical ingredients. Toxic ingredients.
So why the heck do we continue to use them? Is it because we didn’t realize there was a more natural shampoo alternative or because it’s just so damn easy to buy one and ignore the ramifications? [Keep Reading]
You’ve all likely heard me complain about my hair on this blog before.
Back in April 2012 I made the heinous mistake of drinking one too many glasses of red wine and allowing my bff stylist to chop my long locks off. [Keep Reading]

There’s no stopping it – you can’t run and you can’t hide. It’s coming for you and it won’t rest until its ravaging is complete.
No, I’m not talking about a serial killer or a disease. The ruthless monster I speak of is winter and its victim is your hair.
Those of us who live in dry, cold-weather climates know all too well the harmful effects that winter can have on hair. Although there’s no fighting Mother Nature and her blustery fury, there are many helpful tips that can keep locks lustrous in the winter months. [Keep Reading]
I was born with straighter than straight hair. We’re talking don’t even need to blow dry it because it naturally dries pencil straight.
So you can probably imagine the lengths I would go to give my hair a little volume and curl. I’ve tried everything from homemade hair masks to blow outs, hot curlers to wavers, curling irons to wands. I’ve even gone old fashion and slept with my hair tied in rags overnight. While some of these options have worked pretty well, I’m always on the hunt for something newer and better.
On one of my many late night web perusals, I discovered the TopStyler by InStyler Heated Ceramic Styling Shells. There was no question; I had to give it a go! [Keep Reading]
From time to time my hair goes through a period of what seems like an extreme amount of shedding. This obviously leads to a lack of volume and overall thickness of hair.
Today I’m going to be reviewing a brand of hair nourishing tablets called Viviscal that right now is REALLY popular. In this Viviscal review I’ll explain how it works, the results you can expect to see, plus show you some of the customer feedback so far.
I’ve heard so much about this supplement so I just HAD to look further into it and write a review. For those of you who have issues with thinning hair, you might wanna read on… [Keep Reading]
