Thick as Thieves: Kérastase Densifique

For better or worse, I'm often inclined to believe that more is indeed better. That holds true for so many things that I love, among them my hair. But despite my best efforts, my fine hair sometimes feels destined to be...less, and a piece of that has certainly been brought to be over the past year by the cumulative effects of what experts call "life-stress." For me, that was not one, but TWO wrist breaks, a move (ugh!), the bitter end of a relationship, and a hyper-demanding work schedule.

But thankfully, one of my favorite hair brands, Kérastase, has come to the rescue with the new Densifique Collection. Comprised of three easy, yet luxurious products (is there a better combination?), Densifique adds substance, shine AND resilience to hair:

 - Densifique Bain Densité ($39): Cleanses - gently! - and helps to strengthen hair from roots to ends.
- Densifique Masque Densité ($62.50): This uniquely textured, gel-like mask smooths hair and leaves what can only be described as bountiful bounciness.
- Densifique Densimorphose Mousse ($42): This decadent, thoroughly unsticky mousse adds volume while retaining softness.

After just two weeks of solid use, my hair is showing its appreciation. Here a Densifique-style, #stressfreeselfie to prove it:

 Densifique is available for purchase at Kérastase Consultancy Salons or online at www.kerastase-usa.com, but three lucky readers will win a set of their own! For your chance to win, tune in and follow along on Twitter @eye4style and @KerastaseUSA

While all opinions expressed are my own, this post was produced in partnership with Kérastase.

Your Seasonal PSA: Laser Hair Removal

Source: Pinterest

Surf, sun and sand await this summer, and I'm here for all of it. In fact, I've got my first beach day of the season planned for Sunday, assuming the weather holds! Of course, as temps rise, there are a few beauty-related PSAs that must be issued, and if you're like me and currently undergoing laser hair removal, you've gotta be extra cautious about sun exposure. Some kind reminders:

  • Any areas being treated by laser need to remain as close to your natural skin color as possible - even extended sun exposure with sunscreen can lead to a tan or a burn, so cover up! 
  • If you're planning a vacation, or like me, are simply endlessly tempted by the thought of a tan, ensure that you stay out of the sun for a minimum of 2 weeks following laser treatment.
  • Even Sunless Tanner must be removed completely from your skin before treatment. I made this mistake last summer and was promptly reprimanded and sent on my (hairy) way by (the otherwise lovely) Jen at Pulse Laser -wah!

Shop This: DANNIJO Memorial Day Sale on Sale

While I adore DANNIJO jewelry, it's always struck me as overpriced - like much costume jewelry, if we're being honest with one another; there are few worse investments you can make (though I make it time and time again). That's what makes tomorrow's "Sale on Sale" uber exciting, as the stylish sisters will offer an additional 30% off their sale section, with code: DJSUMMER14.

I'd suggest bookmarking your favorites today and logging on early to shop. For me - and I shouldn't even tell you this - that's the Izzie necklace seen above. With an original retail price of $795, tomorrow's Sale on Sale will bring that down to a much more palatable $445.

Happy shopping!
