PM Insiders Review: Mother's Day Edition

PM Insiders Review: Mother's Day Edition

Posted by Team John Paul Mitchell Systems on May 4th 2016

Moms╌they do it all. But the new super-mom doesn’t just tackle the world each day" she does it all in style.  So we asked Annette and Elizabeth, two PM Insiders and fabulous mamas, to tell us about their favorite Paul Mitchell® products to make taking care of their locks an easy part of their daily routine. Check out their picks below!


When it comes to styling my hair, I look for products and tools that can cut down on styling time, but are also gentle on my hair. My hair takes a lot of time, but that doesn't mean I have to give into it! I start with the MarulaOil Rare Oil Replenishing Shampoo and Conditioner (I don't know how I lived without this duo before.) This combo softens my textured and frizzy hair.

I let my hair to dry naturally and use a wide tooth comb  to gently brush through and loosen up any curls.   When my hair is completely dry, I spray Hot Off The Press® liberally throughout my hair and finger-comb along the length of my hair.   Starting with the top of my head, I gather 1-2 inches of hair, hold the iron down at an angle and twirl each section around the Express Ion Curl®.

I finish with the clamp down for another few seconds and release.   Because my hair holds a curl really well, I gently brush out the curls while my hair is still warm.   This gives me a natural wave as opposed to ringlets. I focus on the top layers of my hair and only curl sections that need a bit of wave. I do a finger brush as a final touch and I'm ready to go!

Annette’s Tips

  • When curling the hair framing your face, curl away from your face.
  • If you want more bed-head waves, alternate the direction of the curl. Curl some pieces toward the face and others away from the face.


There I was, four months post-partum, with thin hair and the dreaded hair-loss conundrum setting in. I had tried a few different shampoo/conditioner combos with the hopes that something would breathe life back into my hair and they either left my hair limp and dry or overly greasy.

Then I discovered the Lavender Mint Moisturizing Shampoo™ and Conditioner. I liked it initially because it smells amazing, but it was how it left my hair feeling that kept me coming back.   Now my hair is stronger, fuller and smoother. After 10 months, the Lavender Mint Shampoo and Conditioner is my still favorite product duo.
