Madison Reed Hair Color: Honest Review from Over 40 Woman

 Madison Reed Review:
OK, I've given several of their products a go and here is what I've found:
My hair isn't in bad shape, but it tends to go from bronde (blond/brown) to brassy. I love to wear it with some highlights but a warmer, deep base. If I choose brown of any color, it pulls very dark when I dye it, so I go with dark blonde or medium blonde.
Here's what happened:
I ordered


I wanted the light brown for roots and the Bologna Blonde (a cool, dark blonde) for rest. Venetro worked great and gave me super results. Covered the grey, left it moisturized and glossy roots. Not too dark and a good base. Loved it.

Bologna Blonde - not so much. I followed directions to a tee and it turned out dark...medium brown almost. Very disappointed. Although it was moisturized and nicely glossy, it wasn't the color I wanted. I started with a deep, carmelly (brassy) bronde and it really pulled dark.

Upon investigation, found these are 20% developers used which accounts for the fact that you cannot go super light (if dark) and they won't do much damage.  You need a developer with 30% or higher and a bleaching component to go light.

I just wanted a lighter, brighter, cooled tone.

I waited for it to tone down/wash out and then tried the gloss:

3/4 clear GLASSA + 1/4 CREMA (cool, lavender tone)

Left it on recommended time and voila! Beautiful tone, gloss, shine, etc. However, after first wash it did seem to diminish significantly.

I ordered the MIELE - honey golden for brunettes and will use this when I feel like going a bit deeper without the  permanent color.

Not sure I'm impressed enough to order more color as I can get a good quality, non chemical hair dye at my local Sprouts or Whole Foods, but I do like the glosses.

They sent me a couple TAME samples, which I haven't tried, but will.

Update soon!

Crepe Erase: An honest review after two months of use

Crepe Erase:

Does this product really work?

*I have not been paid or sent any free product for this post*

I have used this product for two months straight. Almost exclusively. I'm on vacation in Colorado and took a big jar of it with me, leaving home most of my other products, oils, butters, etc.

The water here is hard. Very mineralized and very tough and hair and skin.

I live in AZ -- very hard on skin as it is so darn dry! However, I have found a great solution that seems to work and isn't pricey (see below).

I wanted so much to like this product and while I think it helps in the immediate (any moisture will help dry, parched skin), I cannot endorse it as a "fix" for dry, wrinkled, crepey skin.

I just can't. I have to say I've slathered it on nightly after my shower, before bed, all over my hands and my hands have never looked worse!

I'm not impressed with this product.

Here's what I mean:

My hand just before applying product.
Dry, crepey, wrinkled...yuck!

My hand just after applying product.
A bit more moisturized, but not really smoothed out or less crepey, do you think?

OK, so what does work?

What I've found to work best is:

1. Microdermabrasion on my hands once a week. I use the Kelley West Microderm 360

2. Slather on oils -- not cheap drugstore hand products or pricey, mail order butters (tried them all!), but just good, quality oils.

Best oils I've found are simple: Argan or Marula

Don't overpay - you can find these online or at health food stores and they work like a charm! Use them on face, body, hands and apply often after exfoliating. Exfoliating makes all the difference!

Tough post: Breast Cancer and OTC estrogen enhancers (i.e. Estroven)

This is not an easy post to write.

I feel I must.

I took Estroven PM for four plus years straight. It helped me sleep at night during the dreaded perimenopause insomnia. It worked like a charm. Or so I thought.

Then I got diagnosed with DCIS. Breast cancer. An estrogen-dependent breast cancer. 

Caught early. Removed. No chemo.

Thank GOD.

But, since I took this OTC supplement and it most certainly (in my opinion only) made matters worse for me, I needed to speak out.

Not to not take it. Not to bash the product. But to make sure all women who are taking it or consider taking it know the risks. 

Talk to your doc. Probably not an issue, but just in case, you need to know.

As a note, I also took progesterone (bio identical) for a few years. Not sure if this had a detrimental effect, but I stopped a couple years before my diagnosis. 

Do your homework! This product and others that mess with hormones can lead to trouble. Just be aware.
