PUREOLOGY - Products that Truly Maintain the Life of your Haircolor

Like many, I typically get my hair colored every 6 weeks.  I was once told that it is more important to pay a lot to have your hair look great because you wear it every day.  Although this is a great philosophy, I realize that not everyone can afford going to a salon every 6 weeks.

This is why I want to spread the word about Pureology hair products.

Back in early December I visited my hairstylist for a highlight, color and cut.  While at the shop I asked about a product line they carry by Pureology.  I was even more curious because they seemed so expensive.  Renee, my hairdresser, explained how you only need to use a small amount of the products.  So, although the bottles appear to be the same size as other brands, they actually last much longer.  My hair is shoulder length, so I would only need an amount equal to the size of a nickel for the shampoo and conditioner.  

Renee used Pureology to wash my hair.  I prefer a volumizing shampoo and conditioner, so Renee used the PureVolume System.  Unlike other volumizing products, PureVolume not only adds volume to your hair but it also protects your color.

Prior to styling she added a product called Hydrate Shinemax.  She then blew dry my hair, and WOW!  This made such a difference!  My hair was so much smoother and shinier than I have ever seen.

It has been over two months now and I haven't had my hair colored yet.  For those out there looking for a product that will help keep your haircolor longer I highly recommend these products. 

I have been able to purchase these at Bubbles, Ulta, and Beauty First around the prices listed below.

PureVolume Shampoo 10.1 oz @ $25

Hydrate Shinemax 2.5 oz @ $18

If you are going to invest in a great hair color, I highly recommend in investing in great products to maintain the life of your hair color.

Spring 2010 Faves!


With all of the snow we have recently received in the eastern United States, I can't wait for the Spring season! I have put together a list of some of the trends that will be seen. I also made sure that the items listed below are wearable trends, since I am a working mother.

Top Trends for Spring 2010:

1. Trench Coats - I highly recommend that everyone get one! Every store I have been in recently is carrying these. Target has a great selection of trench coats in bright colors for those on a budget, only $39. These are essential to great style during the rainy weather.

2. Patterned Skirts - I suggest getting a skirt with bright bold print. These skirts are a lot of fun and look great with the new spring sandals.

3. Boyfriend blazers - This style can be pulled off well when paired with a feminine piece such as a sequin tank.

4. Torn Denim - Pair this with a bright blazer and you will definitely have style.

5. Clogs & Wedges - The IT shoe for the season! These can be easily worn with a little dress or skinny jeans.

6. Lace - Lace has been spotted on just about everything. From dresses, tops, tights, shoes and accessories. There are tops and dresses with a little lace, and others that are all lace. You choose!

7. Floral dresses -From big pops of colors to tiny prints - it's all about being boho chic this season.  

8. Sequined tops - All about the glitz & glam, dress them up or go casual as they look great with a boyfriend blazer.

9. Nautical - Stripes galore! This classic look never goes off our radar. Need some inspiration? Think Audrey Hepburn. Pair a boat neck tee with a classic blazer and skinny jeans to update. 

10. Pants - Linen & crisp white pants are the way to go this spring. Pair them with leg-lengthening heels for a luxe look or opt for a relaxed style with gladiator sandals.
