Kiehl's Amino Acid Shampoo Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) – Available at Kiehl’s and Nordstrom.
Scent: Mild coconut.
I Like: the subtle coconut fragrance. This product effectively cleans hair without stripping it of vital oils.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives. 

Kiehl’s Amino Acid Shampoo is a great-smelling all-around hair wash.  The mild coconut scent makes washing hair fun and relaxing – I close my eyes and imagine being on a tropical island every time I shampoo with this stuff.  This product lathers up well and gently cleans hair without stripping it of essential oils.   I recommend this trying this shampoo especially if you have normal to oily hair.

How to Look Like Steve Jobs Caulfields Counter Commencement Speech Mac iPhone iPad iPad Job men's grooming St. Croix mock turtleneck New Balance 991 sneakers

Create your own reality distortion field.

Still looking for a Halloween costume?  Don’t fret.  Pay tribute to Steve Jobs by stealing his style.  It’s a look most people will immediately recognize.  Looking like the father of Apple is an affordable, straightforward process that involves three easy steps: 1) getting the right haircut, 2) proper beard trimming, and 3) finding the right wardrobe.

Step 1: Getting the Right Haircut
Ask your barber to use a “#8” all around (sides, back, and top) with no to very little tapering.  Style using Aveda’s Control Paste – this will give your hair a clean, effortless look.  Work a small amount into your palms and fingertips then apply using a gentle gliding motion to keep stray and flyaway hair in check.

Step 2: Trimming your Beard Properly
Keep your facial hair sleek and clean.  Use an attachment (usually it’s a #2) with your beard trimmer that will leave you with a 1/4″ facial hair length.  Your beard should start just below the cheek bone (from the top) and end about 3/4″ above the center of your adam’s apple (no pun intended).  After trimming your beard, moisturize your beard and skin with Beta Naturals 100% Pure Argan Oil Moisturizer – an effective, all-natural cruelty-free (Steve would approve) product to soothe your skin and soften your beard.

Step 3: Wear the Right Clothes and Accessories
Unless you’re a purist, you can pull off the Steve Jobs look without having to dip into your savings.  With the economy being so unstable, there’s no need to buy a $185 black mock turtleneck from St. Croix.  Instead, I suggest picking up a similar top from JC Penney or Sears for around $20.  For the pants, break out a pair of stonewash “dad” jeans or Levi’s 501 (Steve’s choice).  To complete the wardrobe, put on a pair of New Balance 991 running shoes or comparable 1980s-looking sneakers.  Accessorize with round eyeglasses (rimless preferred) and an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad.

Step 4 (optional): Have Fun
Nonchalantly browse an Apple store, solicit photographs outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, or start a Steve Jobs flash mob.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo Review Caulfield's Counter Haircare Hair Dandruff Cooling Men Women

An all-around great shampoo: Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Aveda.
Scent: Mint with subtle rosemary.
I Liked: the natural, refreshing scent and mild tingle.  My hair felt clean and my scalp felt energized after using this shampoo. Ideal for use on normal to oily hair.
Not a fan of: nothing. However, those with dry hair may want to explore other options or use this shampoo sparingly – maybe once every few days.

What I enjoyed most about using Aveda’s Rosemary Mint Shampoo were a) the scent and b) the cooling effect it had on my scalp.  The smell is a natural, invigorating blend of… drumroll please… rosemary and peppermint.  The fragrance is evident but not overwhelming – it’s just the right amount.  This shampoo left a pleasant, mild tingling sensation on my scalp.  I highly recommend this product for those of you with shorter hair who enjoy using a thoroughly cleansing shampoo, as it effectively lifts oil.

Soap Deluxe's "Sporty Outgoing" Bar Soap Ingredients List

As someone who is developing a business, I appreciate other emerging business owners who focus on being environmentally-responsible.  One such company is Soap Deluxe, a maker of  natural, cruelty-free handmade soaps based in the United Kingdom.  I met Soap Deluxe’s founder, Philip Woolley, by chance through YouTube.  Philip contacted me one day about one of my videos, “Bar Soap vs. Face or Body Wash – Which One is Better?”  In this video, I tout the advantages of using liquid body washes without really considering the benefits of bar soaps.  With Phillip’s help, I now realize I was generalizing when I spoke about both body washes and bar soaps in the video.  Not all body washes and bar soaps are made the same.  Many commercially-made big brand liquid cleansers and bar soaps contain chemicals that can over-dry and irritate your skin.  What I should have said in the video was pay close attention to the ingredients of the body washes and bar soaps you purchase.  Stick to products with more natural ingredients whenever possible.  Your skin will benefit from it.

Pictured above is Soap Deluxe’s Green bar soap, characterized as “outgoing sporty.”   The scent is a refreshing blend of basil, rosemary, ginger and fennel.  Ideal for use in the morning or after a workout.

C.O. Bigelow Barber Hair & Body Wash Elixir Red No. 1608 Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★

Price: $ ($10) – Available at C.O. Bigelow.
Scent: Potent blend of spice, red currant, fig, and sandalwood.
I Like: the versatility of the product – made for hair and body.  
Not a fan of: the strong fragrance, sulfate ingredients, and paraben preservatives.

The C.O. Bigelow Barber Elixir Red No. 1608 Hair & Body Wash is ideal for use post-workout or pre-dinner date.  Its strong scent ensures any trace of body odor is, at the very least, masked.  Trust me, you won’t need to apply cologne after using this cleanser.  Don’t use this product on your face – the potent fragrance and sulfate ingredients could potentially over-dry the skin and cause breakouts.  Those who enjoy strongly scented masculine products may want to give this hair and body wash a try.

Aveda Men Pure-Formance Shampoo Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Aveda.
Scent: Earthy, woodsy.
I Liked: the scent and the gentleness of the shampoo.
I didn’t like: nothing.

The Aveda Men Pure-Formance Shampoo is one of the best I’ve tried in recent memory.  What I enjoyed most about it is the scent – it’s masculine but not overpowering, with that great Aveda earthy, woodsy fragrance I’ve grown to love.  This shampoo is kind to the hair as well as the scalp.  My scalp typically feels itchy when I use a shampoo that isn’t gentle enough.  This has not been the case with the Pure-Formance shampoo.  It cleans without stripping the hair and scalp of vital oils.  I highly recommend trying it out.
