My Favorite Products For Sleek, Shiny Hair

It’s been a couple of years since I told you about the products I was using to tame my unruly hair. While those products are still great backups they’ve been replaced with something even better. About a year and a half ago I started using the Oribe haircare line and let me just say I love it! It makes my hair silky soft and so shiny, no easy task, since my hair leans towards bushy, frizzy and curly. I’ve toyed with the idea of getting it straightened but in the end I simply don’t want to expose myself to...

Anne

Anne sells beautiful shoes—think Louboutins and Jimmy Choos—but it’s the gorgeous skin of this ageless beauty that I am taken by every time I see her. Some women half her age don’t have as wrinkle-free skin as she does, so when I ran into her recently I just had to ask, What’s your beauty secret?  “Coconut oil,” she said.  “It’s the only product I use.”  Coconut oil has long been touted for its health benefits, both as an antioxidant and an antimicrobial, but many people, like Anne, are using this tropical oil as the newest weapon in their beauty...
