Sulfate-free is where it’s at!

Keyword: sulfate, shampoo, kenra

Sulfate-free shampoos are taking over…and for good reason! Sulfate is found in most shampoos these days. It is probably the worst ingredient in a bottle of regular shampoo.  Basically it strips your hair and leaves it dehydrated. Conditioner can only make up for so much. You are then left with dry and/or frizzy hair.  Sulfate free shampoos became popular when the kertain treatments began.  The sulfate shampoos would strip the keratin chemical treatment right out of the hair. I began using sulfate free on all my keratin treated clients…now I use it on everyone, including myself!  With a sulfate-free shampoo, your hair is never striped of all its natural, good oils that keep it healthy and hydrated. I even find that I can go with out conditioning sometimes!


My favorite sulfate-free shampoo to date is Kenra’s Platinum. I have written about Kenra’s Silkening Mist in the earlier days of this blog.  It is still one of my favorite products.  I even got my clients hooked on it.  It only makes sense that I would fall in love with their shampoo too!

Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys has passed away at the age of 47

Keywords: beastie boys, adam yauch


This one hits pretty close to home. Some of my best memories of high school come with listening to the Beastie Boys. When I got my Jeep the first song I jammed out to was Intergalactic. Even in the NBA video games the Beastie Boys were well represented. One game enabled you to even play as the three white rappers.


MCA in this picture is playing the role of the referee. The boys often played some crazy dress up, and being New Yorkers of course basketball was a theme as well. I actually caught MCA at a Knicks game a couple of years ago. So with that, I say rest in peace to one of my long time favorites, MCA.

What’s she whipping up for her honey?

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake… a celeb couple we love to love!  In an interview with French magazine, Gala, Biel discussed her new upcoming role: wife & homemaker.  She doesn’t feel anything will change once they take the plunge into marital bliss, except for may her spending more time in the kitchen.  Though rarely home, she describes her experiences in the kitchen as “total disasters” with an occasional “pleasant surprise.”  She boasts about her zucchini fritters and how she enjoys whipping up cupcakes.  Jessica also says she enjoys trying to customize recipes… that’s always a sign of someone with some hidden cooking potential!  I bet they’re packing on the pounds of happiness in no time!

Jennifer Love Hewitt out in LA

Keywords: pic of the day, jennifer love hewitt


This red bandage dress on Jennifer Love Hewitt looks absolutely amazing!    She went with a light blue nail polish for her fingers and toes that I’m not crazy about- I feel like maybe she needs a piece of jewelry to complement that color a little bit?  It does the bold and vibrant red-and-gold combo a disservice in my opinion.


She looks beautiful though-   Amazing how she disappeared for a little bit, then bounced right back to the top.  Movie money or TV money-  I think she has plenty of room in her bank account for as many bandage dresses and heels her little heart desires.

No make-up day for “The Snooks”

Keyword: Snookie, Jersey Shore, make-up, naked, natural

So where is the spray tan? Where is the piled on make-up and the orange bronzer?  Snookie went for a no-makeup look on Wednesday and wasn’t afraid to post pictures on her Twitter! The girl who once claimed to not even step into a gym without make-up is starting to mature before our very own eyes. I personally think this is a wonderful look for her.  I’m surprised to see that there is a natural beauty under all that junk she puts on her face. Her Twitter fans seem to agree!  Maybe we will start seeing a softer side to Snookie….

Whips and chains and ropes, oh my!

It’s another Wednesday! So, if you’re not as lucky as I am to have two amazing gay jobs, you’ll need a little laugh (or nookie) to get you to Friday. Now, I can’t provide the nookie, but I’m sure here for the laughs and slightly-biased gay info!

Speaking of laughs, this is awesome! I’m not sure if this is a sign in a Home Depot or a poster for a safe-sex ad (I think it’s the first) but it sure does rock! I wonder if this really said this or some employees had a little fun one night before closing and took the pic. Either way, it put a smile on my face and a ‘share’ on my Facebook! I hope you do the same! Just tell them you got it from this awesome blog,!

And one more thing, since it’s hump day…



Screw you! (In a good way!)
