Summer Essentials

Nothing feels less glamorous than melted makeup and frizzy hair.  Here are products I use to prevent wilting in the heat and humidity.

Stila Sun Bronzing Powder -  Shade 2 is the most popular, looks the most natural and goes on gradually. $28

Rene Furterer Naturia Dry Shampoo - Best dry shampoo on the market.  If you've never used dry shampoo, it will change your life.  Use it after a workout or to refresh your hair when it starts to feel oily but doesn't need washing. $24

J.F. Lazartigue Anti-Frizz Smoothing Straightening Gel - This puts products like frizz ease to shame. I used to get my hair chemically straightened because of frizz.  Never again!  $33

Moroccan Oil - keeps hair smooth and shiny and works nearly as well as the straightening gel for half the price. $15

Zon Cosmedix 24/7 Oil Control Blotting Tissues  - It absorbs oil, but also powders your face a bit.  Choose between Amber & Rose depending on your skin tone. I'm Amber. $5

Do you spy the pair of false eyelashes in the shot?  I'm going to let you in on a secret.  Lashes for $2.00 to $2.50 a set.  Hundreds of styles too.  In fact, all of the goodies on this page were bought at Nigel's Beauty Emporium.  It's where Hollywood studios and makeup artists stock up.  Go!

I Just moved back to the coast, and had forgotten how frizzy, (and BIG,) my hair could get!! I've been Rockin' (trying to anyway) the "Carrie Bradshaw Messy Up-Bun"...but I'm starting to miss my flat iron! Every time I even think about straightening out my fro, I end up talking myself out of it... I mean, really! What's the point?
But! You may have just given me a reason to try!! I think I will try to find the miracle serums on-line...WeHo is a bit far for me...

oh goody! my mom lives at the beach and she has only tried the moroccan oil & it has changed her tresses! good luck! another tip, blow dry your hair while it is wet, not too towel-dried for a sleek blowout

P.s. For the Moroccan Oil, I'm assuming "a little goes a long way..." yes?

yes, i use a dime sized amount before blow dry on the parts that get frizzy, along the ends and the front of my hairline. once it is dry, i use even less going through my ends :)
