Rev Up Your Ringlets

It’s Christmas Eve which is always a funny place for the Canadian Gift Guide. I really feel like I’ve given y’all a bunch of swell ideas to carry you through to this point: gift-giving mecca. But I also recognize there are December babies with birthdays to be had, tired hostesses to be given tokens of gratitude, anniversaries to celebrate, and so on. The reason why I write this blog is gift-giving truly is an everyday occasion. So with that, I’m throwing one last idea at you – whether you scour a local salon to snap it up for yourself, or you order it online for a near-future gift-giving occasion, today I’d like to extend a hand to all you curly-haired gals out there.

Rev UpMeet RevUp!, a one-two punch created by hair artist Jonathan Torch, designed to tame even the most unruly of tresses without the use of silicon and sulfates. What it does contain is a whopping 84 natural trace elements designed to make your hair even more touchable, healthy, and voluminous than before. Simply use the shampoo as you would normally, and finish off your power shower with a few spritzes of the Volumist spray. Whether your air or blow dry, you’ll be amazed at the huge amount of tamed, sleek volume your hair gets – similar to spending a day by the sea.

Curly Hair GalsIt’s worth noting that although RevUp! is designed for ladies looking to rock their ringlets, it also works wonders on gals with wavy hair (the woman in yellow above is from the brand’s hair gallery, wherein her ‘before’ picture showed dry, fluffy follicles), or women simply looking to combat the frizzies and revive lank locks come wintertime. The secret behind RevUp! is it not only protects your hair from breakage and daily wear, it allows moisture to penetrate each strand to eliminate frizz and lock in volume and softness. Because the products are all water-based, you can use them every day without worrying about build-up (hint: my hairdresser gave me a stern lecture eons ago about how brands like FRIZZ-Ease leave a serious waxy residue that kills your hair).

RevUp Combo

RevUp! is just one of many products from Jonathan Torch’s Curly Hair Solutions shop – and works beautifully with some of the brand’s other products. Not only do they sell you what you need to finally manage your mane, but they teach you what products work best for what hair types, provide styling tips, and the have a line of tools and clips to round out your would-be at-home hair salon. RevUp! comes in two sizes – 2 oz for $19.50 or four times that, 8 0z, for $39.90. Plus if you order online, you actually get a free Curl Keeper to stop frizz in its tracks. It makes a great pick for any lady in your life that loves her hair but has never really sought out products specifically geared to treat curls the way they deserve to be loved – just in time for New Year’s Eve to boot!

So there you have it kids, my final gift idea for you in this very hectic holiday season. As I mentioned above, this is a particularly timely gift if you’re looking to whip your hair into shape before NYE, or if it’s only just cooling down where you live and you need something to treat your tresses through the long winter months. If you fall into that category – curly-haired or not – you may be in luck: I’ve got FIVE full-size volumizing systems to give away. Here’s how you can be one of those enviable winners:

1) Leave a comment by January 8th with your biggest hair challenge – is it lank locks? Split ends? Pesky greys? Dull curls? Will RevUp! be your miracle product?

2) Entries are limited to one per person / per email address / per household (or more if you score bonus entries). A random draw will be conducted on or around January 9th to select the winner, who will have 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen in their place.

3) Entries are limited to Canadians that have reached the age of majority in their province. Quebec is not eligible to participate in this promotion.

4) Bonus Entry: Give the gift of the Canadian Gift Guide – it’s free, first of all. For every friend you recruit to sign up to be a subscriber + leave a comment nothing that they are a subscriber / who referred them (ex: I’m a subscriber & Sarah P recruited me), you’ll earn yourself a bonus entry. You can bring on an unlimited number of referrals, but not fake ones – I can see your IP Address!

    My biggest hair challenge is getting my hair to behave. If I head out the door after washing my hair, it gets all puffy, fluffy & frizzy. When I try to manage it, there are always sections that just never go the right way. I’m resound to living life unpolished unless RevUp! really does become my miracle product.

    Thanks & happy holidays πŸ™‚

  71. Heather Wright says:

    My hair is naturally curly, however as of late (like the last 10 years!), I have dead straight locks for some odd reason…. I even got a perm to get them back, but it has since grown out. If I’m in very humid weather, they come back a bit, but are monstrously frizzy, and no amount of conditioner/serum/masques seem to tame… I’m at a loss, and would be ecstatic to finally have something that would work, and give me the confidence to wear my hair out of a pony tail for at least one day… I know, I’m a sad, sorry character! πŸ™‚

  72. My biggest hair challenge is those greys. I am only 30 but I already have a thick streak of grey that even blonde dye doesn’t really hide
