young again

So I wasn't blessed with the smoothest hair, it has always been really coarse and brittle. I like to blame it on my dad, he is Iranian and his side of the family has super thick black hair which I inherited. I have always envied both my sisters smooth, sleek hair. I'm constantly battling the frizz with mine and I do believe it's part of the reason I became a hairdresser in the first place... all those years of messing with my own sometimes impossible hair. Don't get me wrong, I do love my crazy natural hair, but sometimes I want it to be sleek and straight. I was just discussing this issue with a friend of mine today and she asked me what to do about the frizz and I told her "that's what hair product is for, lots of it!" You can imagine how excited I was when Kevin Murphy came out with YOUNG.AGAIN, Immortelle infused treatment oil. It protects against heat, conditions, adds shine and improves hair strength. I use mine before I blow dry and style and I even use it throughout the day when my hair starts feeling dull and dry or frizzy. I also admit I love to shampoo my hair... everyday. I keep it hydrated with Kevin Murphy Balancing Wash (for all the everyday shampoo-ers) and a combination of Hydrate Me Rinse mixed with Born Again Treatment. My hair ritual is now complete with Young.Again, the perfect cocktail for shiny, soft, smooth hair :)

golden years

I'm in love with these golden waves Felicity Davis has done on the Kevin Murphy website (
How cool, they used the Kevin Murphy wave clips and some gold pigment while in the rollers to make the hair golden. I LOVE THAT.

I can't wait to try something like this out at the salon, I haven't gotten to play with the Kevin Murphy Rollers, but i'm super excited now.
