>HPOW: One ‘n Only Argan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo and Conditioner

>Hello Blog Lovers!! I know it’s been a while since my last HPOW post because I was wanting to post a lot of my YT videos (Be on the look out for more videos in the future) however we are back in business. I have been trying some new products and I have some reviews I want to share along with some of my favorite products.   This weeks HPOW (Hair Product of the Week) is the One n’ Only Argan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo and Conditioner.  Recently I posted up some facts about Argan Oil and the great benefits and since I was on an Argan Oil frenzy I saw this shampoo in Sally’s Beauty Supply  and I just had to try it! It was cold at the time and I knew that I wanted/needed to try a new moisturizing shampoo because the dry air was affecting my hair. Moisturizing shampoos are excellent for the winter months to keep the hair from drying out due to the lack of moisture in the air outside. So I picked this product up because it was on sale and also because it was Sulfate Free Shampoo. I stated in my Shampoos and Sulfates posting that I wanted to try a Sulfate Free Shampoo, so when I saw this it was like a 2 for 1 deal (sulfate free shampoo and argan oil JACKPOT). I was ecstatic!! Couldn’t wait to get home!! Check out the stats below on this HPOW and be on the look out for my review and thoughts about using a Sulfate Free Shampoo. So far I love this product!!!

Elegant Edge is going to focus more on beauty products this year as well as continue in everything and all things about hair. I’m on a journey this year and I’m going to share it with you guys!

I just recently purchased my first set of Sigma Make-up Brushes and I am excited to say the least! I had heard lots of great things about these brushes and so I recently decided to purchase my first set. I shared with my Youtube subscribers that I was aiming to build up my make-up collection and along with that comes the tools that I need to create flawless looks for myself and others.

The professional brush set comes with 5 brushes for the face and 7 brushes for the eyes. The face brushes can be used to apply and blend products, contour, and buff the face. The Eye brushes can be used to apply, shade, and blend, and dust the eye with color and texture. Below you will see the brushes that I purchased and a detailed description of what they are used for. I will also conclude the post with my first hand reaction and thoughts of these brushes check out my a vid from my YT Channel for more insight.

My Thoughts So Far

Initially my first reaction is that the brushes are extremely soft like feathers. I think every face should come in contact with these brushes when I say that I am ecstatic about using these brushes I am ecstatic!! I feel like I will get some good use from these brushes. They were not expensive and I think I may just get my bang for my buck!!
How to Clean your Sigma Brushes
My Sigma Brush Kit came with a informational card that gives directions on how to clean my brushes without ruining them completely. I think that is just awesome especially for those who are just getting into Make-up. According to the card Sigma recommends cleaning their brushes with brush cleanser or a mild baby shampoo before using but do not wet wood handle and the junction between the handle and the ferrule (metal section). Refer to the video How to Clean your Make-up Brushes on my YT Channel.
