Visiting my LA hairdresser recently (the excellent Amanda at Luxe Lab in Santa Monica), I received a welcome compliment on the improved quality of my hair. I put this little victory over my formerly brittle strands down to a couple of factors: For the past three months I've been supplementing my diet with Folic Acid (not only does it make your hair grow faster, it also strengthens bones, skin and nails), and twice weekly I lather up with Philip B African Shea Butter Shampoo. This is hands down the best shampoo I have ever tried; rich in texture and fantastically nurturing without ever weighing the hair down. It is also fragrance free which is great if you have sensitive skin or want to add a scented conditioner. Granted, at $39 a pop it's hardly a bargain, but if one were to view it as a yearly treatment - rather than a daily hair wash - the high cost could be somewhat justified... :)
I am a trained actress and fashion stylist with a special love for interior design. Raised in Sweden, educated in England, I now live in Los Angeles with my husband Sean, son Noah and our little dog Moses. Pre baby, this was my attempt at a "style blog" - these days it looks more like a family album.
