Fekkai Holiday Promotion



I must say, holiday beauty deals are helping me stave off the winter blues! 

The latest promotion to catch my eye is for renowned stylist Frederic Fekkai's hair care line. While supplies last, you can get 10% off your total order PLUS a bejeweled holiday headband. To take advantage of this offer, use code: HEADBAND. In addition, each Fekkai order comes with free shipping and samples.

Fekkai is a professional quality product line, and Frederic Fekkai and his staff personally test each formula in the Frederic Fekkai Salon before public release. This line offers such a wide variety of products that I'm not sure what I would like to try most. I've been into big, curly-wavy hair lately, so I'm definitely eyeing the Full Blown Volume Styling Whip ($25) and Perfectly Luscious Curls Wave Activating Spray ($25). Anything to amp up my thin strands!


This is the headband that comes with the 10% off Fekkai promotion. The silvery-grey band is studded with mirrored beads and rhinestones for a shimmering, festive hair accessory. I'm picturing this with an ultra teased crown for a sexy, retro look. 

Something like this, perhaps?



Or this?


I imagine that Fekkai Full Blown Volume styling products might come in handy for creating these 'dos! Totally perfect for a holiday party.

Have you used Frederic Fekkai hair care and styling products? I hope to get my hands on some in the near future to get my hair looking ultra-fab for the season!

Inova Professional Silk Keratin Hair Care Collection Review


Inova Professional Silk Keratin Sheer Magic Smoothing Balm Pure Shine Luminous Finishing Gloss
Inova Professional Silk Keratin Products

I am smiling wide over here. I actually have exciting news about my boring tresses for a change!

But first things first: I have naturally bad hair.

I am not being unreasonably critical, it's just the hard truth. My hair is thin, lifeless, and clings flat to the top of my head. Despite my hair's lack of body, the frizzy texture causes my strands to stick together like cotton candy when I pull them apart for styling. UGH.

That's why I'm so excited about today's news: I don't feel frustrated with my hair anymore. I tried Inova Professional Silk Keratin Hair Care products, and my locks are now smooth, soft, and manageable. This is the closest I've been to having "normal," pretty hair in my life.

Inova Professional was founded by Daniel Babishov and Simon Aminov, two salon owners and hair stylists in NYC. After seeing how damaged clients' hair became from color processing and other chemical treatments, they decided to create a product line to restore and condition hair to keep it smooth, healthy and manageable. They developed a salon keratin treatment called Pure Keratin and an accompanying line of retail products called Silk Keratin. Inova Professional's Silk Keratin products are ideal for preserving keratin-treated hair, but they work well to increase the health, silkiness and manageability of all hair types. I tried five different Inova Professional Products, including daily hair care and styling products and an intense weekly treatment.

Let's take a look at each of these hair-smoothing products:

Hair Care

Silk Keratin Smooth Protection Sulfate-Free Shampoo ($24): This luxurious shampoo contains keratin and coconut oil to strengthen and nourish your hair. I noticed increased silkiness immediately after trying this shampoo. It's sulfate-free too, so it won't break, damage, or frizz-ify your hair with harsh sulfate ingredients. However, this shampoo contains silicone so it is not appropriate for people using the sulfate and silicone-free Curly Girl method. 

Silk Keratin Smooth Hydration Conditioner ($26): Smooth Hydration Conditioner is a rich, moisturizing conditioner that won't weigh your hair down. I love to leave this in for a few minutes in the shower to let the keratin and silk proteins sink in. I've been using Inova Profession products for about a week and the smoothing benefits of the conditioner continue to increase daily.

Silk Keratin The Miracle Mask Repair and Rejuvenate Deep Conditioning Mask ($48): The Miracle Mask is fantastic for reducing damage and nourishing your hair. Containing keratin, silk protein, and avocado oil, this weekly treatment reduces the appearance of split ends and makes hair more manageable. You only need a small amount to coat your hair, then you can relax for 20-30 minutes while it does its magic. The result is healthy, manageable, and silky tresses.

Hair Styling

Silk Keratin Sheer Magic Smoothing Balm ($26): This is my absolute favorite product of the bunch. Sheer Magic has formidable kink-erasing and frizz-killing power that won't leave your hair greasy or weighed down. It's like a more effective version of Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Relaxing Balm. Sheer Magic seals your strands and acts as a heat protectant for styling. Using this product with heat tools results in a defined, professional look. 

Silk Keratin Pure Shine Luminous Finishing Gloss ($32): Pure Shine is the perfect finishing touch for your style. This product adds beautiful high-gloss shine and definition to your hair while simultaneously protecting it from environmental damage. A little bit goes a long way!


Inova Professional products have made styling so much easier for me. I bought a Conair Infiniti You Curl Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Wanda few weeks ago, and I've been struggling to make it work with my difficult hair. Since using Inova Professional products, my hair separates and wraps easily around the curling wand. The resulting curls are smooth, glossy and defined. My hair has never acted like this before! Plus, using Inova Professional products has cut down on the time needed to curl each section of hair, so the whole process is less damaging.  

I am so happy with how silky and well-behaved my hair has become from Inova Professional products. I never used to think that smooth, manageable (yet grease-free) hair was within my reach. Inova Professional proved me wrong, and I'm excited to continue using these products to keep my hair healthy and shiny.

The lovely people at Inova Professional are currently offering a big 30% discount for my readers! The discount is available starting today, August 23rd and is active until September 23rd. The promo code is: INOVALOVESNICOLE
