Review: Terax Crema Original Moisturizing Daily Conditioner

We're just about smack dab in the middle of the Summer Holiday... and that means it's time to talk about mid-summer hair. If you've been swimming a lot, (chlorine or saltwater) sunning it up, or you've got extra-thirsty bleached hair... you know what I mean. Summer takes a big toll on the health of your hair, and that's where Terax Hair Care comes in!

Terax Crema Original Moisturizing Daily Conditioner is like a tall drink of water for your hair. Just like that first sip, the first time you use it is ah-mazing. Soft, moisturized, clean hair, and it just gets better the more you use it!

Pre-highlights, (April 2015) frizziness and flyaways were my biggest concern. It had been a while since I had colored my hair, so I was in a pretty comfortable routine. I typically washed every other day. My hair was usually a little oily and ready for a good cleansing by that time.

Then came highlights.

Immediately after Highlights

I didn't intend to get quite the drastic highlighted look that I've currently got, but I do like it. Most days. I'm definitely planning on toning it down come Fall. But let's get back to the point, shall we? My hair is naturally super dark, so for me, highlights require lots of bleaching. Bleach, as we all know, totally dries out hair.

But that's not all.

My hair is naturally thick. The combination of healthy, thick, dark hair with dried-out highlighted hair makes for an interesting texture on my head right now. That odd texture can make it difficult to style my hair the way I like it.

Enter Terax Crema Original Moisturizing Daily Conditioner.

Terax Crema Original Moisturizing Daily Conditioner

I've never used a conditioner like Terax Original Crema before. Rather than deposit moisturizers on top of the hair follicle like regular conditioner products, this conditioner actually opens them up and deposits all the nutrients your hair needs to feel super soft and moisturized. After rinsing, you use a regular conditioner to seal the hair follicles back up tight! According to PR, Terax Crema Original Moisturizing Daily Conditioner features "a unique blend of ingredients that revitalizes all hair types by reducing frizziness, improving elasticity and detangling hair, eliminating split ends while rejuvenating chemically and environmentally damaged hair."

After using Terax Crema Original for more than a few times, (I'm about 2/3 of the way through the bottle) I can say that it definitely does make my hair feel softer and more moisturized. My hair just feels healthier when I use it as opposed to the days I go without.

As far as frizziness goes, Terax Crema Original has definitely helped smooth my locks a little bit. Summer humidity is never kind to my hair, and it's been giving me quite the headache lately! In all fairness though, my hair isn't just frizzy, it's also fuzzy. Lots of flyaways. So, it's helped tame those a little bit, just not to the point of going without any of my other frizz fighting products. But like I said, I do have thick, frizzy, fuzzy hair, and it's the middle of Summer. Kind of an uphill battle.

Scent-wise... well, I wouldn't really say that this has a scent. And that's definitely not a bad thing in my book. (I can be scent-sitive.) Because of the fact that it's meant to be used in addition to other hair cleansing products, I'm thinking that's why. Better to not have any scent at all than a scent that doesn't mesh well with other shampoos and conditioners, right?

Wondering what this conditioner does if you've got curls? Peanut was more than happy to give it a try. Her hair is just as thick, frizzy, and fuzzy as mine, but she's got ringlet curls. While her hair isn't really damaged, it is usually quite tangled by the end of the day. This conditioner made her ringlets curl up a little more tightly than normal and definitely smoothed out the frizzies and fuzzies.

All in all, I would definitely buy this product again, because my hair is going to need constant moisture until the highlights alllll grow out. Before that happens though, I'll probably get toner and some lowlights thrown on, so... constant moisture will definitely be required at Chez Sparkle!

SinfulColors Mauve On Seriotype

Whether you call it a seriotype or smooshy... (I prefer seriotype) there is just something about this style of manicure that I can't get enough of.  Polishes Used:  1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Out Ridge Filler 3 Coats SinfulColors Mauve On Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Hey there! It's been a little while, hasn't it? Sorry about that. Life happens, you know? Oddly enough, I didn't stop painting my nails during my hiatus. I kept taking pictures for a while, and then that just sort of stopped to. Weird how some habits die hard, while others don't change a bit.  Anyhoo... I found pictures of this mani in my files and couldn't believe I didn't share it! This was one of my favorite polishes last spring, and I recreated this exact seriotype/ a few times.  This mani started out with 3 fresh coats of Mauve On. I typically wrap my tips on the 2nd c

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027 , today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION ...  Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 3 Coats China Glaze Violet Vibes Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line SinfulShine Konstellation 2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and

12 MoC: Merry Marsala

Since the announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year 2015, I've been on the hunt for Marsala in polish form. You might think this would be a simple task, but it's actually been quite difficult, and I'm still not 100% there. But this polish is thee best match (and deal) I've found so far. I give you Haze of Love... Polishes Used: 1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler 4 Coats Wet N Wild Haze of Love 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite   Marsala is an earthy red with an almost equal blend of red and brown. It's a super versatile shade, and depending on what you pair it with, it can lean towards either color. It's a rich shade, but not overly dark, and a little dusty. In all honesty, Haze of Love is a decent enough match, but it could still stand to be muted down a little bit. It's just the slightest bit too dark, now that I look at the graphics and my nail photos so closely together. But how many people are going to put
