Oily hair and dandruff go together like 'yuck'. I'm not an expert and will never understand how skin can be oily and dry at the same time. Since my dramatic hair transformation last year ('tryna' go black to blonde), I've had major scalp issues. My hair is much more oily and I have dandruff!? Yup - dandruff. It's kinda like 'the' curse word nobody says out loud - DANDRUFF! Ok, now that I've said it aloud, or rather posted it in shouting context, lets talk oil and flakes.
Amongst the damaged hair treatments and gentle hair care, I've been struggling to combat my oily hair and dry scalp. After just one day, my hair looks greasy (I KNOW). My hair is damaged from bleach and I can't shampoo every day, so I began researching.. My oh so lovely hair stylist recommended I apply Bumble and Bumble All-Style Blowdry to my scalp prior to blow-drying my hair. I also use Bumble and Bumble Repair Blow Dry and Mending Complex on my strands. The All-Style Blowdry formula has oil-absorbing powders and doesn't leave buildup on your scalp. Applying this product after washing my hair has reduced the oil buildup dramatically.
In all my on-line studies, I realized that healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp, so I invested in a few treatments. My favorite treatment shampoo is Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo. The charcoal and coconut oil-infused shampoo exfoliates and soothes your scalp. The detox formula is super refreshing. Scalp Revival has a peppermint scent and slightly tingles. I expected a strong cold-tingly feeling but was pleasantly surprised at the subtlety. I use this shampoo every two weeks for a super cleansing, refreshing, detox of the scalp.
Phyto Phytopolléine Botanical Scalp Treatment regulates the scalp, promoting healthy, energized hair. This oil treatment is super strong in scent and sensation. I use it once a month and love how refreshed and revitalized my scalp feels. This elixir is 100 percent pure and natural oils - Approximately four pounds of fresh plants per bottle!
The combination of these three products has allowed me to skip TWO DAYS in between washings. This is a big deal for me (I used to wash every day). My scalp is less itchy, I have fewer flakes and my oil problem has subsided (at least for two days). Washing my hair two-three times a week is so beneficial to the hair-repair process. It never occurred to me to treat the skin on my head, but it makes perfect sense now. I invest so much money in facial serums and creams, of course, I should invest in my scalp.

In the spirit of award season, I'm presenting b.a.gorgie beauty product awards to cosmetics I recently discovered and absolutely luv!
Sephora Ultimate Oil-in-Gel Lipstick Remover quickly removes lipstick and lip stains without harsh rubbing. This product is excellent! I wear lip stains often and usually the red and pink stain is still visible days later despite my efforts to scrub it off. This oil-in-gel lipstick remover immediately erases lip color, leaving your lips soft and clean.
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine is my new favorite lipstick. The colors are vibrant, slightly shiny and the creamy lipstick allows for easy application. Most importantly, this lipstick doesn't dry your lips. I luv the lipstick casing design - it's unique, pretty and what attracted me to this product.
I know I keep talking about Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish, but it's because this product is amazing. This styling spray adds texture and volume to hair, smells good and comes in a mini purse size for on-the-go touchups. Trust me - you will luv this product.
Bumble and Bumble All-Style Blowdry - This styling product has micro oil-absorbing powders that extend the life of your blow-dry by one day (maybe even two). It adds volume, smells great and leaves your hair feeling clean and fresh.
Givenchy Mister Perfect Instant Makeup Eraser is a makeup removing marker that allows you to correct mistakes on your lips and eyes. No more struggling with q-tips...this remover has a slanted tip for precision removal.
Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow adds color and makes your eyebrows appear thicker. I usually fill-in my eyebrows with a dark eyeshadow and will most likely continue this method for full-makeup looks, but for day to day I'm using Gimme Brow.
Congratulations on your b.a.gorgie beauty product awards!
