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.

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 coat and add a 3rd for balance. Next, I ad…

I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3

In case you missed my review of First Kiss, daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health.

Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter shades on my toes lately…

Zoya Free4You Promotion

It's Zoya promotion time again! This is one sale that I just have to jump on every year. Usually, it's because I try to do a no-buy around the Holidays and I'm just itching to buy all of the polish. I didn't really set out specifically to do that in 2015, but that's how it ended up. So I was pretty excited to get the email about Zoya's one week only Free4You sale!


The premise of the sale is simple, choose 4 Zoya shades, (excluding pre-packaged sets, Naked Manicure, Zoya Treatments, and the Spring 2016 Whispers Collection) enter 4YOU at checkout, and pay just $15 promotional shipping. That's the equivalent of $3.75/bottle with free shipping. Zoya polishes normally retail for $9-$10/bottle, so this is a pretty sweet promotion!

Now I know you're wondering... what shades did I pick out? I thought you'd never ask! I swear, I didn't set out to only order purple and blue polishes. And I know that exactly none of these were on my Lemmings list! That see…
