“It Had to be OUD…”

For those of you with curly/wavy/frizzy locks, you’ve just hit the hair care trifecta!

I have finally found a shampoo, conditioner and styling product that allow me to ‘wash and go’ without incurring a huge, frizzy, shapeless mess atop of my head. Gone are the days of me sleeping on my freshly shampooed hair so as to reduce its volume by morning.

Fluffy headed people rejoice, because there is a cure for you…


Your hair will never look like this again (see above photo). This victory does however come at a hefty price, but I assure you as someone who never needed to tease their hair in the 80’s to achieve volume, these items are well worth their price.

Drumroll please….

Philip B has created the Oud Royal line of hair care products that has revolutionized my hair routine. The 3 products I am praising today are:  Oud Royal Forever Shine Shampoo, Oud Royal Forever Shine Conditioner and lastly but certainly not least Oud Royal Mega Curl Enhancer. All of these products are available at Ricky’s NYC, SpaceNK Apothecary, Bergdorf Goodman and most other high-end department stores.

There are a multitude of reasons why you’ll love these products, but here are my favorites. Unlike other “anti-frizz” hair care products, these don’t just fight frizz, all 3 help shape your curls, making them lighter, bouncier and much more manageable. The scent is out of this world, I leave my house without perfume because my hair smells that good and it lasts all day. My hair even looks good the next day, which is virtually unheard of where my hair is concerned.

I’m all about the options, and Philip B’s Oud Royal line has them in spades. The conditioner can be used as a leave in if your hair is really coarse or dry and the shampoo can be left on for a few minutes for a deeper treatment. All 3 of these items have multiple uses depending upon your hair type, read the back of each item to get the best performance out of each product.

I can honestly say my hair (and I) have never been happier.

Happy Hair = Happy Human!

Happy shopping y’all…xo Elisa

oud shampoo and conditioner


Tamed Tresses…

This post could have just as easily been called; Bye Bye Big Hair or Frizz This!! but regardless of its title the message is the same, kiss your frizzies goodbye.

I was recently away for the weekend and rather than schlepping my ginormous bottles of shampoo and conditioner with me I decided to buy something over there.  Sephora was directly across the street from my hotel (a very happy accident I assure you) so I went in to buy tiny sized bottles of sulphate free shampoo and conditioner (hotels rarely do sulphate free).  I was hemming and hawing between two brands when the sales associate came over and suggested I try the one she deemed better for my hair.

I should let you know, I do nothing with my hair, if hair-ability were an olympic event, I wouldn’t even make the trials.  I have many gifts, but hair styling is not one of them. So I opt for a cut that is easy to wash and go.  I have very thick hair and a lot of it, so frizz is not my friend.  I wanted to wait before recommending this product for 2 reasons, firstly I wanted to be sure I did 2 washes at home so as not to praise a product for making my hair ridiculously soft when in fact it was the water from my hotel and secondly I didn’t think it was a good idea to blog while sipping Mimosa’s ( I was in Vegas, don’t judge me)!

Now for today’s recommendation:  Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo and conditioner.  I can’t believe I never tried this stuff sooner.  My hair is incredibly soft, shiny and feels weightless.  As for frizz, it is a thing of the past.  The link above will take you directly to the Discovery Kit which is how I was introduced to this life saver,  for $29 you get a small shampoo, conditioner and styling cream.  You can buy Living Proof at sephora.com or online directly at Livingproof.com.

If by some chance my recommendation isn’t enough (it should be enough) Jennifer Aniston liked the products so much she bought into the company.  How ya like me now?  😉

I am Living Proof that their No Frizz products really do work…
