I love trying out new products on my hair, especially products made for Mermaids. I recently was introduced to the beautiful perfume and hair line called Mermaid Hair No. 7. I have used a lot of products that make my hair feel silky smooth, and these definitely do. The scent is romantic with hints of Orange Blossom and Coconut, leaving your hair smelling fresh and sweet. I also recently purchased some hot rollers! My friend was raving about her Remington Hot Rollers and I had never really tried them because my hair is so long and usually needs more heat for my curls to hold. Well I discovered I have been living under a rock all this time because I am in love with hot rollers now!
I am excited to share with you these two hair product reviews and how much I adore them both! Enjoy
Made with all natural ingredients, these shampoo and conditioners are organically created with orange blossom flowers and coconut oil. The best part is that they are formulated without any sulfates. Sulfates are commonly used to create a heavy suds but they dry out and damage your hair. Don’t worry about these not sudsing though because they definitely do without the harsh ingredients. YAY. They are also not tested on animals, which allows me to feel safe and happy about using them.
So the question was, does this conditioner and shampoo really create mermaid-like hair? Well…yes! my hair felt so incredibly smooth after using both of these combined and I am not just gloating! When I do not like a product, I will tell you! Mermaid hair also gave my locks a beautiful shine, those fish tails have been keeping this product a secret for way too long ;). These 8fl oz. bottles retail for $35 a piece or can be purchase together for $60 HERE. Not only is the name adorable, but I guarantee that you will be happy with how your tresses feel after using Mermaid Hair No* 7.
** For an extra deep condition: Apply a good amount to the hair and let it sit in a bun on top of your head in the shower for around ten minutes. I like to exfoliate my face while waiting or whiten my teeth. Rinse and go throughout your usual routine, this will give your hair an even silkier feeling.
Now how to get mermaid waves…
I was a bit skeptical when my best friend told me about her new obsession with hot rollers. I obviously had heard about them millions of times and seen them used a bunch in the 70’s,
but my question was-
would they work for me? Well I proved myself wrong, again, and fell in love with how they made my curls feel and look. details below…
Why I loved them:
The reason why I doubted hot rollers was due to the length and thickness of my hair. I have naturally long, curly hair but I do not like the look of my natural curls, so I like to blow dry them and curl them unnaturally with a curler or wand. This is super damaging to the hair when done daily so I started using a wand, well this takes at least thirty minutes to an hour to do, so it can be a bit of a hassle. The first reason I fell in love with Remington Hot Rollers was because I was able to pop them in-in a quick five minutes and start on my makeup routine. This saved me a lot of time to start working on other morning beauty things. I also loved how little damage these heat rollers did to the hair. Remington’s rollers are made with pure ceramic, so no burning or over heating will occur. I can feel safe about not over exhausting my ends and know that I am doing very little ware to my hair.
Price: $25-35+, depending on where you buy them. There are more options to choose from at Target for a less price, I chose these because it included the clips, they had a velvet base for less damage and I love Remington hair products!
20 curlers included in two sizes: medium and large
How to apply: The first step is to make sure your hair is completely dry, this will ensure that the rollers will curl your hair quickly and safely. I parted my hair in three sections– bottom, middle and top. For loose waves use thicker pieces of hair per roller, I used about an inch and a half and used 14 of the rollers. I used all ten of the medium rollers for the bottom and middle strands and used four of the large rollers for the top strands. Roll the rollers vertically so that the curls uncurl smoothly downwards. Clamp all of the rollers along the way with the included clips. Spray your hair with your desired soft hair spray and let sit. Wait 20 minutes to an hour depending on how tight you want the curls and then remove. The longer you wait the tighter the curl. Easy as pie!
Why I suggest them:
No more burnt fingers, burnt hair or burnt foreheads. Luckily, the clips provided in this set are easy to use, it’s like a jaw clip–and amazingly enough, the rollers, while super-hot, don’t burn my fingers as easily as I’d feared they would. The velvety covering and overall design definitely leavs your hair smoother and your fingers protected better than other hot roller brands I’ve seen in the store, and I think this would be a perfect set for a hot roller newbie.
Do the curls last?
Yes, to my surprise, they really did. I used soft hair spray to set the waves but these rollers really lived up to my friends referral. I was delighted with how easy these rollers are to use and how shiny they left my hair. I highly recommend them to you if you have yet to try rollers! Let me know how your experience goes!
**These are the waves that I achieved after using my Remington Pearl Rollers and my Mermaid No* 1 shampoo and conditioner– a great combo! Soft, loose and romantic! The shorter your hair the tighter your curls with these rollers. I left mine in for 20 minutes exactly, for a tighter curl you may want to leave in a bit longer! Make sure your hair is completely blow dried before applying rollers!
