Lets Talk Hair

 Top 3 of My Favourite Hair Products

Stylize active wear hair elastics

Last month I started an intense workout regime in efforts to get fit after the holidays and in time for my first cruise at the end of February. What I find most frustrating when exercising, other than the hundreds of push-ups and suicide jumps my workout entails, is my hair elastic not serving its purpose to hold my hair off my sweaty forehead, as I bounce around in my living room a.k.a. home gym. Shoppers Drug Mart is where I found my solution to my hair situation. Stylize has created active hold hair elastics that have rubber woven into them. This elastic holds hair in place firmly, so go ahead ladies or long-haired boys…get sweaty without constantly adjusting your mane.
Trying to achieve that messy, only took two minutes to do, bun hair style? Or the perfect and polished 8 a.m. meeting bun?
Two words: bun shapers. I know, it sounds like the bun shaper should be something that Susan Somers promotes along with the thigh master, but this little donut shaped hair aid is what you need to achieve the perfect bun.

The bun shaper can be found at most hair supply stores, I bought mine at Sally’s Beauty Supply. Since I have only had this must-have product for a day, I thought it would be best to include a video of someone with more experience demonstrating how to use the bun shaper properly and struggle- free.

Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment

Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment has changed my hair. Its light-weight texture, a mixture of macadamia nut oil and argan seed oil, leaves your hair feeling rejuvenated as if you just left the hair salon. Okay, it sounds as if I'm writing an advertisement for this product but honestly it's the best hair product since dry shampoo. This oil can be used on wet or dry hair, but I like to use it with the Macadamia Deep Repair Masque. When I’m in the shower I put the Deep Repair Masque through my hair (usually once a week). On top of the masque I use a dime size amount of the Healing OilTreatment and coat my hair. I leave it in for 10 minutes and rinse. This oil is worth its price of $29.50 for 4.2 oz. It lasts for months (I’ve had mine for 6 months and its half full) so go ahead and splurge, you’ll love the results!


  1. I just saw the bun-shaper (or as I like to call it, the hair doughnut) in Cosmo yesterday and I was gonna get one this week! I'm so glad that someone has tried it, and I'm really happy you posted a how-to video.

    Great post Maggie!!

  2. I'm really tempted to try that oil! You didn't disappoint last time so I am sure it will prove to be great!

  3. I'm always looking for new products to soften and strengthen my hair. Maybe I'll have to give that healing oil treatment a try.

  4. I had been wondering about the oil treatment. Thanks for the tip, Maggie.

  5. I've always wondered how you got your hair into those fancy big buns. I'm getting me a scrunchie thingie! How much was yours?

  6. My sister was complaining that her bun was not up to par - I passed along your recommendation and she is in love with it! Thanks for the tip Mags!

  7. Maggie, I bought this after reading this post. A

    fter dinner with a friend she kept commenting on my hair and perfect bun. Well, now I am on my way to buy another one because I had to give it to her. She was so excited about it. Great Find Maggie!

    PS. The video really helped
