As I’ve mentioned before, besides blogging, and makeup, my absolute favorite thing on earth is reading any books related to beauty. It’s a bit of an obsession. I was recently sent the book Can You Get Hooked on Lip Balm? and this book is a def must-read if you’re a beauty junkie like me. The book is written by the creators of www.thebeautybrains.com. This is a website that is written by a team of scientist who answer beauty questions and try to debunk many beauty myths. The book is divided into Hair questions, Makeup questions, Skin questions, and then the Beauty Industry. It’s such an easy read and I learned so much and agreed with them on so many things. Plus they answered a few questions that I always wondered about, but I was way too embarrassed to ask.
1) They agree with me and say that coconut oil and olive oil are highly effective oils for the hair.
2) They don’t think that that Wen conditioner is anything special too. (Just like I thought.)
3) They talk about spending way too much money on hair conditioners and how it’s really not needed. Most $5 to $10 dollar conditioners are just as good as $30 dollar ones.
4) They talk about the popular Ojon treatment, and basically say you can get the same thing with a product containing coconut oil which will probably be way cheaper.
All in all, this book is LOADED with amazing information and I highly recommend it. Anyway, the nice folks at The Beauty Brains are not only giving us a copy of the book to give away, but a $50. Sephora gift certificate as well.
Just leave any comment here. Tell me something interesting about yourself.
