Hair Pampering

I'm a believer that hair is one of the most important features. Rihanna has a great face and body but her flaming red hair is kind of a turnoff when she's off stage. Well, at least she turn me off enough to not make me wonder if the carpet match the drapes. But obviously the pokemon hair works as she's probably having grapes fed to her while I'm sitting here eating my leftover shawarma that I know will make my stomach feel funky later. Meh, it still taste good. I'll let the afternoon Julie worry about it.

My hair is pretty damaged from the years of straightening and dying. Over the past few months I've discovered the hair mask. The hair mask gives your hair a deep conditioning (even deeper than regular conditioners) and my hair feels so soft even the morning after. So far I've tried a range of hair masks between the price of $5 such as the Pantene Pro-V Time Renewal Replenishing Mask and the Garnier Deep Repair Mask to the price of $33 such as the THANN Hair Mask. All three worked well and minus the "expensive smell", the $5 worked just as well as the $33 hair mask in my opinion. So if you got dry and damaged hair do give it a try.

If you straighten your hair and want to know what a good straightener is, go to Hair Straighteners Reviews as it contain reviews of the popular straighteners and you can see that the Karmin Titanium got the top hair straightener. Stay tuned for a giveaway next week where Hair Products Pro will be offering a Karmin hair straightener to a lucky reader on Pop Champagne.

  2. Your hair is gorgeous. I love the red highlights. I am trying to grow my hair again. Is your hair naturally straight?

  3. You have great hair. Mine is naturally curly, I like to call it poodle frizz and I straighten it every day. I would love to have your type of hair! Can't wait for your giveaway!

  9. Love the hair color!!

    I haven't died my hair in a few months now, I figured I'd give them a break from all the coloring. They wouldn't take in the color anymore anyway.

    I do straighten them every day though.

    I just discovered a brand of japanese shampoos dedicated to damaged hair from constant styling and so far it works AWESOME <3

    But maybe I'll try the hair mask too~

  10. these are the best pics of you! love it!

  11. Your hair looks healthy! Mine gets tangled pretty easily, otherwise I have no problems with it.

    Colored contacts, too? I think this is new? Maybe I just missed a post of yours!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hahaha!!! "Expensive Smell"! I totally get what you mean! When I go to the salon, I always leave with shiny, new, expensive smelling hair :) I've nevr tried hair masks, but it's worth a shot. My hair tends to fall on the oily side, so I never have problem with extra dry hair.

  13. My hair is the type that NEEDS to be styled. It's got just enough wave to be annoying. I used to straighten it ALL THE TIME but now I switch between that and curls. Either way I generally use some kind of styling tool on it so... hello damaged hair.

    ReplyDelete
  14. It's like you read my mind. I was just thinking these past few days how damaged my hair is from the straightener. I use a hair mask from Schwarzkopf every week and for now, I try to get used to my wavy hair. At least it's healthy. I will go check out the reviews and I look forward to your giveaway, count me in.
    Your dad sure is wise and it's true, if a guy is cheap with a girl then it means he doesn't care about her, if he likes a girl he will try to spoil her in the best way he can. I am not materialistic but I love nice gestures.

  15. Your hair looks so shiny! I use Moroccan oil and love it!! But I rarely straighten or dye my hair. Styling my hair in the morning loses out to laying in bed longer.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Thanks so much for the comment! <3

    I actually only straighten my bangs on a daily - if I can be bothered to. Haha! I usually do it tho.. My straighteners are pretty good, but I don't have a heat protecting spray : ( boo!

    Also.. if that's you in the photos.. your hair looks effin' amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  17. cute hair julie!! love the color and it's so shiny! haha i agree with you on the rihanna bad hair....argh! i seen her in person a few years ago with short hair and didn't recognize her because she looked so terrible.

  18. I was just thinking about hair products and my hair yesterday. I notice that my hair gets staticy because I blow dry it probably twice or more a week and the heat from my apartment doesn't help during the winter. I've also notice that during the winter my scalp has a freak out. Yesterday I had bought the grainer fruitis anti-danruff shampoo with microbeads. For anyone whose scalp has a freak out during the winter this is great! It feels weird because of the beads in the shampoo but it smells so good! It also suppose to help strength your hair. I also can feel a total difference with my hair. It feels super soft and clean. I also just made an appt to get my hair cut for Saturday! Can't wait!

    I might have to try the hair mask as well!!
    Also your pictures are lovely and I love the color of your hair!

  19. The colour of your hair is amazing! I agree that hair is a key accessory which is why I'm thinking of going brunette. The upkeep of blonde is just atrocious!

  32. I'm going to confess a deep, dark secret: for a little while as a teenager I had long hair. I didn't take care of it, but it usually looked okay...except in one picture snapped by an older sister--for blackmail purposes! I should post it so she can't hold it over my head any longer.

    Your hair is always very pretty!

  42. You look really gorgeous in the pictures. I agree with you From 5 to 50, the important is to use the mask. I use it at least 2 times a week. I have a witch hair...

  43. You and your hair are absolutely gorgeous!! Love the shots, your look amazing.

    I chopped all of my hair off and wore it short for over 2 years just so I could grow out all the old color and damage. I was coloring and straightening it for 5 yrs. Now it's au naturel and I am just starting to grow it long again and let it do it's natural wave.

  50. nice! :) i'll look for a hair mask here as well :) it's so hot here since we're a tropical country, so my hair tends to dry out.

    thanks for this post :D

  51. Something I will definitely need to try!! Hair masks are on my list.

  55. Your hair looks really healthy! My hair's a bit dried out from all the abuse I've put it through. I completely agree with you. Rihanna's red hair is a complete turn off. I like her better with dark hair.

    ReplyDelete
  56. oh LOVE your hair! My hair is a constant mess of frizz and one of those things that I just give up on. And bad hair can ruin my whole opinion of myself on any given day. :P It's so annoying! I'll have to remember the deep conditioning thing.... maybe that will help with the friz!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Yes, yes, Father Figure!!! I'd forgotten about that. Oh yuck! LOL

    BTW, I love your sense of humor!

  59. Julie- U r too cute!! :)

    You posted this a week too late! I am now the owner of a 2nd GHD straightner (first one I think it's dying on me after 1000+ usages (daily ritual of abusing the poor thing)). Stay sweet! <3

  62. AHHH... Your hair is so pretty. I wish I can dye my hair but I'm so scared that I might mess it up because my skin color doesn't actually go with any color. I think I have to be careful. Any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Your hair looks in a much better state than mine! Incredibly shiny and I love the colour.
