Smooth and Polished

Well hello birthday-eve! I'm excited to continue the celebrations this week, and will be starting tomorrow with my free birthday drink at Starbucks and then treating myself to a Benefit Brow Bar appointment at lunch. Speaking of treating myself, it's not so often that I can get to the blow dry bar for the perfect blow out so I'm loving my new goodies from HSI Professional. Living in Florida, the humidity and all the swimming in chlorinated pools can take a toll on my hair. I struggle with both frizzy hair after our afternoon thunderstorms, and also dry and damaged hair in-between trips to the salon.

Glider Ceramic Flat Iron | Argan Oil Smoothing Hair Mask | Round 2" Brush | Round 2 1/2" Brush


I start with the Argan Oil Hydrating Smoothing Mask which restores my hair's natural elasticity, and smooths and tames it with argan butter, argan oil, and vitamins. I then use a hair dryer and a round brush to achieve a finished look, while finishing it off with the ceramic flat iron.


I had been on the hunt for a good hair mask, and couldn't be happier with the Argan Oil Hair Mask that is highly concentrated that infuses protein back into dry and damaged strands. It's made without parabens, phosphates, or sulfates, and is color safe - win win!
