The path of self-discovery is stressful, exhilarating and everything in between. I love that the Not Your Mother's brand is youthful, fun and helps young women find their personal style. From their witty product names to their wide array of professional grade hair products and tools, NYM is the perfect brand for fashion forward girls who love trying out new styles and making a statement.

Recently, I tested out the Way to Grow Long & Strong Shampoo and Conditioner, She’s a Tease Volumizing Hair Spray and Knotty to Nice Conditioning Detangler.

After only a few weeks of using the Way to Grow Long & Strong shampoo and conditioner, I've noticed a visible difference in my hair's length and less breakage. The salon formula nourishes with essential vitamins, herbs and bioactive extracts for stronger hair and a silky texture.

Knotty to Nice has been my savior. I have extremely thick hair that has a natural wave when I allow it to air dry. It saves me time to skip the blow dryer but as a result of not brushing it through properly, I get some serious knots. I'd go so far as to say the layer of hair closest to my neck gets matted. This conditioning formula infused with keratin protein strengthens hair as is detangles to fortify the strands and prevent breakage. The product can be used on wet or dry hair for pain-free brushing and smooth tresses.

Fight humidity while keeping your style intact. NYM She's a Tease Volumizing Hair Spray is available in a cute, travel sized version that can easily be tossed in your bag for touch-ups on the go. Who would be without a hairspray?

Now that the brand has me hooked, I am dying to try their Clean Freak Dry Shampoo and Beach Babe Sea Salt Spray! I’m picking mine up at Ulta.com.

Okay, we all know dry shampoo is one of the best inventions (in a long time) to be introduced to the beauty world. We are now free to accept last minute invitations and social events without fear of having unwashed hair! Of course it's a fake hair "washing," but nonetheless a social beauty lifesaver! Not to mention the jump start of volume it gives you, pumping our day-at-the-beach hair from flat to sexy in seconds! As it has been increasingly popular, we are now given a choice of powder or aerosol spray. So, what is the difference?

Not Your Mothers Girl Powder 7.25.13

If your hair is more on the thin side you'd benefit most with the powder option because it is applied right to your roots and gives instant volume as it immediately absorbs the oil at the root of the hair. Not Your Mother's: Girl Powder is a perfect option to achieve high volume hair quickly and effectively! The scent is amazing and your greaser hair look will vanish in seconds making you look like you just stepped out of the salon when you really were cleaning the house all day. Try and find any traces of oil after applying this...you won't find any! Oily hair people will want to be all over this one! I have come to find out that it is the best product for my short hair, as it gives me a chance to give my look a more "bed-head" / "wash & go" type of careless look. The effortless posh look as I like to call it :) This is also the better option for hot climates / summer travel as it is smaller and isn't in an air compressed can that can explode if exposed to high heat! 

To use a powder product, it's always best to start with less and build as you need more. You can't take away powder from your hair and you can easily make yourself look dusty and aged if you over do it! I recommend you take a few shakes into the palm of your hands and rub your hands together then rub into the roots. If I'm lazy about it I will shake the powder direct into my roots and massage in...make sure you have used the product a few times before attempting a pro move like that though.

Don't you just love your beach hair? Salty, sexy, tousled, wind blown waves create this accidentally gorgeous, rockin' beach style. Aren't there times when you wish you could create that look without actually going to the beach? I love the ocean, the sun, the waves, and the sand. I would be at the beach almost everyday in the summer if I could. But I can't. So I found a solution to get that beachy look and feel without the time and effort of the beach - Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray and Beach Babe Texturizing Hair Cream. When used together, these products will have your hair saying "beach babe" in no time. 

Not Your Mothers Beach Babe Texturizing Spray 7.25.13The Texturizing Sea Salt Spray is infused with Dead Sea Salt & Sea Kelp; you really get that ocean salt texture without the dryness. It does not make your hair stiff, but instead creates separated, tousled pieces and waves. It is also really easy to use! Just mist onto clean, damp or dry hair, and then comb through or style with your fingers to create a random, piece-y texture. Don't be afraid to go a little on the messy side - tousled, messy pieces can go a long way! Not only will your hair look like you were just at the beach, but you will smell like it! This product smells amazing! Just like the beach - it smells like your favorite sunscreen, salty, little bit of coconut. This scent description is not doing it justice, but take my word for it, it smells like the beach! 

Not Your Mothers Beach Babe Texturizing Cream 7.25.13If you want extra hold and texture (great for those with thick hair) add the Texturizing Hair Cream. After you apply the Sea Salt Spray, simply squeeze a small amount of the Hair Cream into your hands, spread over your palms, and scrunch your hair. Add more until you've achieved the desired style. This will help create more defined pieces, and add extra hold. This product feels a little sticky in your hands, but works great in your hair. I have thick, and rather frizzy hair so this was great to help control and define pieces. If you have thin hair, you might just need the Sea Salt Spray, so be mindful of your hair type when choosing what product to use! This product also smells just like a summer lotion/sunscreen! 

I found these products great to use for a summer night out when you want that look of effortlessly tousled waves. I don't use heat styling tools too much in the summer - my hair tends to get frizzy and un-tamable in  the summer heat and humidity and I just give up on trying to create a perfectly tamed, slick style. The Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray and the Beach Babe Texturizing Hair Cream are great to get some added texture and waves without the use of heat styling tools. Also my hair looked, felt, and smelled like I just came from a relaxing day at the beach! So if you're having beach withdrawals, these products will help ease your senses and create that beach style!

Both the Not Your Mother's Texturizing Sea Salt Spray and Texturizing Hair Cream are an awesome buy at $5.99 each! A great save option without sacrificing style!

Summertime. Love it. Hot humid weather, skirts and sundresses, going to the beach. My favorite. Only problem, my big frizzy mop of hair.  Humidity kills me; I always have a halo of frizz. I am more than willing to try any product which promises to help me with my frizzy mess. This month’s go to frizz fighter is Not Your Mother’s Lock Luster Oil Treatment, infused with Argan and Macadamia Oil.

Lock Luster Oil treatment promises to add some life and luster back to my dry, overworked frizzy hair. I am guilty of blowdrying and flat ironing my hair more than I should. This product creates a protective layer on my hair, my hot tools lock this moisture into my hair making it shiny and soft after heat styling. I loved loved loved this product for this! I applied as indicated to my wet hair from tips to roots (sparingly on my roots) before heat styling. Then after my style is complete, I used a small amount to smooth down the final stubborn frizzies.

Not Your Mothers Lock Luster 7.29.13

What makes the Lock Luster oil treatment so great? Macadamia oil reduces wrinkles and dryness. It is a natural moisturizer and emollient (emollients attract and trap moisture from the air). Macadamia oil is light and non-greasy so it is easily absorbed into the hair shaft and skin. Another gift of macadamia nut oil is that it contains proteins, and its vitamin E contributes skin-care benefits and long shelf life. The high count of mono-unsaturated fatty acids makes the oil mimic the sebum (naturally produced oil on scalp and skin which protects it from damage).

Together, macadamia oil and argan oil replenish the hair’s natural emollients with the high content of essential fatty acids found naturally in both of these exceptional oils. The combined benefits help to nourish and protect the hair from harmful UV rays while repairing hair follicles for improved elasticity and shine. Lock Luster Oil Treatment contains both of these oils, making this product so amazing.  I urge you to try Not Your Mother’s Lock Luster Oil Treatment!!
