Get Hair Ready For Spring!

As it gets warmer in Kansas City, I know that with the heat comes the frizz — my poor hair!

So I have started to think about using more products and hair care to keep my hair hydrated, soft and smooth.  Here are my current faves:

Topganic Leave On Silk Serum
Topganic Leave On Silk Serum

Topganic Leave On Silk Serum ($13 USD) — Sodium chloride free, Paraben-free, SLE and SLES free anti frizz and nutritious oil for dry and ultra dry hair.  It is perfect for hair that has undergone any type of chemical treatment including straightening and curling.  The active ingredients captured inside this bottle, deliver healthier, silkier and extraordinarily shiny hair.

This flawless recipe is enriched with Brazil nuts, which are known as one of nature’s best sources of selenium, an important mineral for healthy scalp appearance. Brazil nuts are also brimming with alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that helps condition your hair.  It is also considered a terrific source of zinc which a deficiency of, may lead to hair shedding.

What I think:  This serum has the consitency of an oil, so a little goes a long way.  I apply a little to wet hair, and it dries soft and smooth.  It is also wonderful for mid-day frizzies.  Plus, I love the scent of this serum — it’s nutty and sweet!

Purchase at

What I think:  I love the shampoo for my colored treated hair.  It is so gentle but cleans very well.  The leave in conditioner smells so nice!  It is easy to use, just apply a small amount to cleansed hair, and either air or blow dry.  The toning mist leaves my hair smooth and shiny, but I am not much of a fan of the vinegar smell.  It does go away after awhile.  Yay!  I really love that it seals my hair cuticle to keep the frizz away.
