#FridayFaves: my favorite hair product and Book Market Maven

This week’s personal fave is: It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-in Product

its a 10I stumbled across this product on Pinterest. According to the hype on the back of the bottle, It’s a 10 does 10 things instantly:

  1. Repairs dry, damaged hair
  2. Adds shine
  3. Detangles
  4. Controls frizz
  5. Seals and protects hair color
  6. Prevents splits ends
  7. Stops hair breakage
  8. Creates silkiness
  9. Enhances natural body
  10. Flat iron & thermal protection

hair after croppedWhether it does 1, 5, 6 & 7 remains to be seen. But it definitely detangles, controls frizz, adds shine, and creates silkiness. And I think it adds some body too. The silkiness aspect is the best part. My husband calls it “TV hair.” It makes my hair very smooth looking and silky to the touch.

As the name says, (leave-in product), you spray it on after you’re done washing your hair. I use it in addition to my regular conditioner (the rinse out kind). There are other It’s a 10 products including a shampoo, a conditioner, and a miracle masque, which I haven’t tried. The leave-in product is about $20 for 10 ounces at Walmart. Target I know, also carries it and you can get it on Amazon too.

Anyway, if you want to add silkiness to your hair, I recommend this product.

This week’s publishing fave is...Book Market Maven

Maven-Icon-W-LetteringBook Market Maven is a fairly new website. So far there’s three parts to it: Market Maven, which focuses on publishing industry news; fiction maven, which offers writing tips; and Editing Maven, offering editing tips. Nonfiction Maven is coming soon. I especially like Market Maven in which Patricia Green offers her take on various publishing issues. Recent topic have include a post on how age and sex affect reading, monetizing your blog, and targeting ads on Facebook.  It’s worth reading. I look forward to new posts, and I’ve learned a few things.

  1. Thanks a zillion for promoting Book Market Maven, Cara. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.

    I wonder if “It’s a 10” is available up here. It sounds like something I would like as sometimes my curly hair is a little wild.

      Happy to feature you. Since your site was new, I was just waiting until you had several posts under your belt.

      I don’t know about Canadian stores, but you can get It’s a 10 on Amazon.ca.

  2. I’m going to check out the hair product. Great photo of your tresses. I’ve been putting coconut oil in my hair as a deep conditioner, but then I crave macaroons.

    Agreed re: Book Market Maven. Lots of good information.
