RetroChic Shampooing Potion

I was given the opportunity to try an item from the RetroChic line of products by BeautyChoice.com. They sent me the RetroChic Shampooing Potion for review. The claim is that it's "superior for restoring damaged hair, locking-in color, and providing lasting protection against the drying effects of harsh sunlight and chemical environments".

Well, I tried the product & while it worked ok, it didn't work as nicely as my regular shampoo. My hair isn't as soft or as shiny as it is when I use my regular shampoo. It did seem to keep tangles down to a minimum, which is a good thing, but honestly, other than that, I'm unimpressed. Plus, I really don't like the smell. I'm bummed because I really wanted to like this.

The ZannClip

I was recently given the opportunity to to try the ZannClip (Thanks Suzanne!).

Oh if only these had been around when I had long hair!

Because of the top coil of the barrette & the fact that it comes in 3 sizes, it can automatically adjust to the thickness of your hair w/o pinching, pulling, or yanking. It is also very versatile.

Besides the traditional ponytail you can create a variety of stylish updos as well. Overall, I think this is a very ingenious idea & I mourn the fact that this wasn't around when I had long hair. What trouble it would've saved me! I heartily recommend this product for purchase.

Renee Furterer Structuring Mousse

Have you ever used a styling product that, to your dismay, made your hair look like a horse spit in it? Well, while I have, I certainly hope that none of you have had to deal with that. With that vision of horror in mind (lol!), I have been fortunate enough to try something I actually like (Thanks BeautyVice!), Renee Furterer's Structuring Mousse. Not only did my hair look comparatively natural & not have that "horse-spit" look, but it stayed in place all day! Currently, you can purchase this product for $17.50 at BeautyVice.com. - Click!

Darkest Mahogany Brown

Hi All! Sorry for being MIA. I've been out of town for a few days, helping a friend. Actually, I was hoping that you, my lovely readers, can help me out with my dilemma. You see, I used to love dying my hair with Ultress' Darkest Mahogany Brown haircolor, but since developing allergies I've found that I have trouble with this. What I'm trying to do is find a natural alternative while matching, or at least coming very close to it, the mahogany brown haircolor made by Ultress. Any suggestions?

Banler.com - Rene Furterer Styling Wax

Once again, I will be reviewing a product I received from Banler.com. Today I'll be reviewing Rene Furterer's Styling Wax. I have to say, I've tried different means of styling my hair. I've tried hairspray, gel, mousse, etc. However, using these, especially hairspray, left my hair hard, without much movement. Hairspray left it downright crunchy, Ew!

I like the styling wax, because it lets you style & sculpt your hair without making it crunchy or hard as a rock. You just warm a little bit between your fingers & apply. So, not only does your hair have movement, the wax ads shine as well.


I have some good news for my readers. StyleBell.com, the e-commerce site for everything haircare & hair styling, is offering DivaShop readers $10 off every $100 or more. Just enter promo code Style10 during checkout.
