Frédéric Fekkai The One

The One by Frédéric Fekkai 


The One by Frédéric Fekkai The Tamed One Collection was sent to me by the brand reps on Thursday, just in time after battling the week-long heat, rain and humidity in New York City.  I was already armed with a top curly bun, determined to fight frizz. After one use, I can't get enough of how amazing my hair feels - and smells! WHAT IS IT? An amazing trio: Frédéric Fekkai Anti-frizz Shampoo ($28.00 8.5 oz.), Anti-Frizz Conditioner ($28.00 8.5 oz.) and Anti-frizz balm ($28.00 3.4 oz.) that is infused with hydrating French Sea Lavender, and provides up to 72 hours of frizz-fighting protection. WHO IS IT FOR? Frizzy/Hard to Manage Hair. This curl-gurl is raising her hand (you just can't see me.) #EvApproved


FRAGRANCE: The sparkling and vibrant scent evokes the mystery of the ocean through an enveloping wave of refreshing, watery accords and the embrace of addictive, sensual musks that will transport you to the luxurious Mediterranean Sea. This high-performance Anti-Frizz collection is formulated with nutrient-rich French Sea Lavender to help tame tresses and lock out humidity for smoother, more manageable hair.

Palmer's Natural Fusions



I'm back after a month-long blog break, and what better way to get back into the swing of things, than a hair review? Now, I wasn't away doing all things non-beauty, I was actually taking the time to focus on testing an arsenal of hair and skin products that have taken over my apartment the past six months, and Palmer's newest hair collection is one that I have been loving since the event launch back in March: Palmer's Natural Fusions, a hand-crafted 8-piece collection, available at Walmart and Walmart.com. #NaturalFusions


What are they? Palmer's Natural Fusions are pure products that are Naturalista-approved, free of sulfates, mineral oil, parabens, phthalates and dyes. No animal ingredients or testing either and formulated with ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients. Also, created for the anyone intrigued by DIY at-home concoctions (raises hands, as I myself mix a slew of products for just the right amount of hold and scent). I personally love the DIY Cocktail Kits to mix into my shampoos and conditioners; I even used them on my skin and in my aroma diffuser (only eucalyptus and tea tree oils).

Palmer's DIY Cocktail Kits retail $13.00
