Lanza Healing Trauma Treatment


A couple of years ago I fried the hell out of my hair. It happens to the best of us, but it was still pretty embarrassing. A combination of poor nutrition, stress and what had become an almost co-dependent relationship with my colorist turned my once gorgeous highlights into Britney, post-breakdown.

Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask

Other than Chipotle, Neutrogena’s Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask is my favorite way to spend $7. (Actually, Chipotle ends up being more…I always end up adding that dang guacamole…) The instructions say to use this after shampooing, but I like to do it on dry hair, before shampooing, and get all of your other business out of the way. And heck– go get your burrito afterward with your gorgeous hair, girl!

Amplify Wonder Boost Root Lifter

Apparently, my hairdresser had been using Amplify Root Lifter from Matrix for YEARS when blowing out my hair without my knowledge. Now, what am I doing during this time that’s so very important? Well, slurping down my coffee, occasionally dozing off, pouring over the latest Kardashian/North West drama, I suppose? Just recently, I looked up to check and see what was helping my blowouts last so long, and give me that extra body at the crown. Well this is it, and I now bring it to you. Now, back to the K’s. 🙂

CAROL’S DAUGHTER Monoi Repairing Hair Mask

She told me the most miraculous product she’d ever used was Carol’s Daugher Monoi Repairing Hair Mask, and that it had completely transformed her locks.

It’s a 10 Miracle Hair Mask

Thank the lord, I can now get my comb through my hair in the bathroom – and it doesn’t take 10 minutes! Recommended to me by hairstylist I trust. Product claims it will detangle, soften, defrizz, restore moisture and elasticity, impart luminous shine, enhance body and improve color vibrancy. Check, check and check. Good for a hair mask, but since I only wash maybe twice a week, I actually use it as conditioner and just leave it on in the shower for several minutes while I attend to other biznet.
