How I Clarify My Hair

Lush I Love Juice Shampoo

I do my best to avoid sulfates in my hair. Curly hair is dry as it is, and sulfates just strip it even more.

Why, then, would I use a product with sodium alkyl sulfate as the second ingredient? Simple: to clarify.

Even no poo heads need the poo every so often, especially if you continue to use products with light silicones in them, like I do. You can end up with product buildup that, try as it might, cleansing conditioners and no-lather shampoos just can’t cut through.

I’ll go in with an apple cider vinegar rinse whenever I wash my hair, but I find that even that doesn’t get my hair squeaky clean. So once every 4-6 weeks, I use Lush’s I Love Juicy Shampoo. Read more!

Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner

I’ve been itching to review Lush’s Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner for a while now, but I ran out of it a few months ago and hadn’t gone to purchase another one since. It’s expensive, you see, and I cringe whenever I purchase one. But then I hop in the shower and wonder how I ever lived without it…

So I decided to compile a list of some of my favourites from 2013. This was originally going to be one post, but it snowballed and I’ve decided to make it two: beauty and non-beauty favourites.

Long Live the Bold Lip: How to Make Bold Lipstick Last All Day (+ The Walking Dead mid-season finale death[s])

Red Lipstick on Dark NW 45 Skin

I remember when I bought my first bold lipstick.

I had just gotten into Mad Men. Enough said.

It was three or four years ago, when I was 16 or 17. I went to my local MAC counter and purchased MAC Red lipstick and Cherry lipliner after receiving a mini-lesson from a makeup artist on how to apply it.

Of course, I fiddled with it myself at home, and like to think that I’ve got a pretty great system going on that keeps my lipstick going strong all day.

But wait, there’s more!
