Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received these products, free of charge, from Mastey, Dauphines of New York and Lassig, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it



Today I have a roundup of hair products that are perfect for giving to Mom for Mother's Day, or her birthday, or for gifting to yourself (quick how many of you pre-purchase gifts for yourself for Mother's Day, and then hand them over, so you can act 'surprised'? Yup, thought so! Takes the 'oh how CAN I return this out of the equation, doesn't it? LOL).

Dauphines of New York Headband, only at Sephora

Designed by NYC's Summer Rej, this new line of Dauphines of New York headbands are only available at "Beauty on the Fly" in Sephora locations throughout the US and Canada. inspired by glamorous style icons who exude a sense of personal style inspirational to others: those unafraid to embrace the luxe and elegant, while simultaneously remaining effortless and carefree.Each headband can be worn different ways, creating an unique look for you.  They start with a signature adjustable elastic band. This band provides tailored comfort of fit, comfort and ease of wear, plus allows the wearer to create multiple hair looks. It also allows you to sya let your pre-teen daughter wear it one day, and you the next! AHA

The headbands contain.the highest quality of materials like semiprecious gemstones on 18K gold plated wire (such as Turquoise, Coral, Labradorite, and Gold Pyrite gemstones), fine leathers (in metallic and matte), weightless metal chains (in gold, rose gold, silver, and gunmetal), sparking crystals (crystal clear, iridescent, rose pink), all finished with engraved hardware reading “Dauphines.”

The headband  has three strands—a black leather centerpiece, a single strand of clear crystals on silver base, and a single strand of gunmetal chain. It sorta fades on my dark hair, but on Miss Grace's lighter hair it looks great (sorry pix was accidently deleted before I could post it). It is perfect for any time of the day that you need a little bling! These headbands are also VERY modern, so Mom can be hip and drop those old school headbands!

Mastey Color Protection Hair Care Products 

Let's face it, when we get to a certain age we have to start coloring our hair, unless you are one of the lucky few whose hair greys/goes white beautifully. For most of us, that isn't an option, and hair dye is the solution, This new line of Color Protection products from Mastey aims to help keep your hair in it's pre-colored state!

>Without the use of chemicals and additives that can harm your beautiful locks, you get shiny hair color that will last, vibrancy and dimension you will adore, and healthy ingredients your hair will love. Their products are 100% Vegan, with No PPD (that cause allergy reactions) or ammonia, and are rich in Argan (for conditioning & heat protection)&nbsp and Olive oils (for softness and shine), as well as other antioxitants, like grapseed extract (to keep hair color looking vibrant).

 Leave - In Therapy Spray- repairs dry and damaged hair with rice amino acids and vegetable based moisturizers, while smoothing to control frizz. It also helps to seal in hair color and  protects from premature fading. It also works as a detangler and provides thermal protection from straightening and blow drying, leaving hair silky soft and shiny. Also helps to prevents hair breakage and split ends
Volumizing Foam-a powerful root lifting mousse with all day hold, it can also support your curls for a natural look and hold. No build up or flaking, as it is alcohol free and humidity resistant!

I was really surprised at how much build up these products removed from my hair in the first washing- my hair literally felt stripped. By the 2nd washing I could start to see a difference in lower frizz and my color lasting really well. I used the Leave In Spray for straightening and it worked really well, leaving my hair soft and manageable. Mousse and my hair generally are like oil and water, but the Volumizing Foam did work nicely to give me 'beachy waves', but LOTS of volume! The line has a powerful aroma from the oils and grapeseed, that might not be to your likening. if you like floral perfumes, you'll love the smell. But as much as it protects your hair and color, it's a small thing to live with! I highly recommend them! They have some great starter kit specials right now on their website too!

We were sent the Retro Blue Adult Twister.
