Beauty, Hair Care, That girl in the red coat

Monday Motivator

Today’s post is later in the day than usual, I know. It’s Monday and the better part of my day was promised to my family. An out of town lunch date with my girl and her Amma, my mother in law. (When she was a wee girl she came up with calling her gramma “Amma” and it stuck). Morning schedules were adjusted, emails delayed, only one cup of coffee and we were off. Being the summer and living in Ontario, we ran into construction and road closures, and with each kilometer the humidex rose little by little. I however was able to keep my cool, thanks to the A/C in my car and AG Hair’s FrizzProof.

This gem from AG Hair Care is a MUST HAVE for summer tresses. AG FrizzProof locks out frizz by creating an invisible, weightless shield over your hair. Even if the humidex reaches 40 degrees Celsius (104 fahrenheit) you can be sure that your hair will remain frizz free and your style silky, shiny and smooth. With it’s 2/5 hold factor it is the perfect addition to ensuring your desired style will hold true.

A few FAB! features of AG FrizzProof Argan Anti Humidity Finishing Spray;

  • enriched with Argan Oil *Sustainably sourced, fair-trade, organic Moroccan Argan Oil
  • contains Copolymers that deliver a humidity resistant light hold with high shine that rinses out easily without leaving any build up on your hair.
  • retains your style – leaves your hair silky, shiny and smooth
  • formulated for all hair types
  • Color safe
  • BEST OF ALL – the Argan oil is farmed and produced by the women of the Berber tribe, enabling them to have financial independence and in turn gives them the ability to provide for their families and educate their children

This is a finishing spray, which means you should apply it to your hair once you have completed styling it, be it curly, wavy or straight and after you have applied any other styling products you may be using. Once you have your desired style, spray all over your hair and VOILA! You and your tresses are good to go!

*a little tip from That Girl in the Red Coat – use this gem all year round. We tend to associate humidity with the summer. Humidity can rear it’s head during the other seasons too. Using a humidity resistant spray can ensure a frizz free hair day, everyday.

Monday Motivator – Senscience Pro-Formance

It’s Monday. Again. For those of you familiar with my blog, you are aware it is becoming my mission to make Monday a little more bearable. I can’t make the coffee brew faster, I can’t get your dog to open the door and walk himself, nor can I make your children give you the moment of silence you so desperately need first thing in the morning. What I can do is help you to have a good hair day on Mondays, and everyday.

For those of you, like myself, who felt lost when Β Joico Brilliantine or Senscience Pliable Shine were discontinued, do I have some AWESOME news for you this fine Monday morning!

This Monday’s featured product is Senscience ProFormance Polish

Senscience ProFormance Polish

Senscience ProFormance is one of the newest collections from Senscience. Although the products are created for our lovely gents, our lovely ladies can use them as well. I am a firm believer that there is always a reason to add a little shine. This gem from Senscience delivers just that. It is a pliable (easy to work with) pomade that is created for all hair types. * a lovely pomade to use on curls – soft and defined. It offers a natural shine and washes out easily – leaving no residue behind. * no flaking – perfect for our dark haired beauties and no brassy tone residue – perfect for our blonde bombshells.

For best results, Senscience ProFormance Polish should be applied to dry hair. A little goes a long way, so begin with a dime size amount, emulsify in your hands, then apply to your hair. When using Senscience ProFormance polish, you can easily achieve any style.

For the Gents;

– a slicked back dapper

– a rebel tousled style – think Marlon Brando in A street car named desire …or James Dean in Rebel without a cause …either will do.

– great for beards – adds that little bit of sheen and controls those pesky little hairs with a mind of their own.

For the Ladies;

– a great finishing product for curls – adds a little shine and brings back a little spring to your curls without leaving a sticky or hard look and feel.

– a perfect product to apply to those pesky flyaways along your part or to control the kick back of your cowlick * that’s why I like it.

– cocktail with your favorite shine serum – a great finishing product to add some shine and control to your ends – instead of your ends looking like a shag rug circa 1970, your ends with be smooth as a baby’s bottom.

A lovely pomade that adds natural shine and it smells wonderful, what more can your hair ask for on a Monday?
