L'Oreal Smooth Intense Xtreme Straight Creme

I'm in an official straight hair phase. I wear my hair straight in the fall and winter because it's impossible to keep my naturally curly hair straight in the summer, humidity in NY being what it is. But, with straight strands comes the risk of heat damage and there are few things worse for curly girls than too much heat. Blow dryers and flat irons wreak havoc on fragile curls, causing dryness, breakage and frizz. Enter heat protectants. I don't let appliances near my hair without them and today I'm taking a look at Smooth Intense Xtreme Straight Creme from L'Oreal.

1143 H20 Peel-off Nail Polish

Cosmetics companies give beauty enthusiasts lots of eco-friendly options, particularly nail polish manufacturers who are 4-Free, 5-Free and vegan. Now the folks at 1143 H20 Nails are taking one giant step further with a water-soluble nail polish. Water-soluble? Yes! I know what you're thinking because it's exactly what I was thinking when I first heard about this brand. You're thinking, 'if it comes off with water, what keeps my manicure intact while I'm in the shower?' For all those details, you'll have to talk to the chemists but I can tell you, it definitely stays on in the shower and peels off when you're ready!

1143 H20 Nails introduces peel-off polish.


Available in 13 vibrant shades, 1143 H20 Nail Polish is breathable, fragrance-free and 100% vegan. It applies just like conventional polish but to remove it, all you need to do is soak your fingers in water, push your cuticles back and peel it off. No need for harsh polish removers that are notorious for drying out your nails.
